The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: The Donkey's Back End

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta learned the hard way how "The Donkey Kicks" when he doesn't have a contract Sunday night.

We recap how the donkey's nickel and dime one another in THG's +/- review.

Phaedra Does the Funky Donkey

So can Phaedra and Apollo really make this donkey booty video fly?  I'd be more confident if even they could get on the same page. Minus 12

Phaedra still says it's for beginners but Apollo shot down that idea once before.  

It's been weeks and they still haven't hammered out many details, between themselves or with Kenya.  But Kenya's the little producer who could and she's already gotten a distribution contract.  Plus 15.

Unfortunately no one wants to pay her for it.  I'm not Kenya's biggest fan but if she's not getting a fee on the front then I can't blame her for asking for a percentage on the back end.  

Not so fast. Ms. Phaedra's not willing to give up that 10%. And Kenya's right. If Phaedra's got something else in mind she needs to make a counter offer. Instead everyone is left in limbo. Minus 11.

If they are the incredible business women they all claim to be, then why is this deal causing such angst?

I love how Cynthia shut this whole thing down before it even started. Phaedra sends out some lame tweet about casting for her fitness video at the Bailey Agency and you can just hear Cynthia say, not so fast girl.  

Cynthia's not allowing her agency to get dragged into this without the money being hammered out up front so she cancels the casting call and puts Phaedra in her place. Plus 18.  

For an attorney, Phaedra doesn't seem to be communicating the details of this fitness video deal very well to any of her so called partners.  Something tells me that's going to come back to bite her soon.

Things are going much better for NeNe who is furnishing her home in the Hollywood HIlls. Plus 20. From exotic dancer to actress on a prime time sitcom, complete with our own trailer.  Nothing stops NeNe.

But she does need to slow down and let Gregg take the reins, at least at home. Let's see how the two of them handle the role reversal.

Back in Atlanta, Kandi throws Todd a 39th birthday bash complete with helicopter tour of the city and a surprise visit from his Momma.  Plus 13.

She even does one better when she shuts Kenya down for bringing up this ridiculous donkey booty video nonsense.  Why start trouble at Todd's birthday party?  Plus 10 to Kandi. She's having none of it.

One of the few signs we see of Porsha is her adoring husband bringing her breakfast in bed. Minus 14.  I've had enough of Porsha's perfect life. 

This donkey booty video controversy isn't about to end any time soon.  Kenya's $100,000 budget seems high for a fitness video and minus 9 for bragging about her $1000 shoes.  How on earth will she ever survive if she only gets to by the $500 pair? 

And did Andy say something in a promo about Kenya singing?  Minus 30.  The last thing anyone needs is yet another singing Housewife.

EPISODE TOTAL: -10! SEASON TOTAL: -142!
