The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Twirl On Out of Here

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Real Housewives of Atlanta hit us with "Reunion Part III" last night and the guys took the stage… well, at least some of them did.

We break down who was missing and which husband was texting someone other than his wife in THG's official RHOA +/- recap!

Twirl

The Househusbands arrived to back up their ladies. Well, some of them did. Walter and Kordell were noticeably absent but their presence was certainly felt.

But first, a big Plus 50 to NeNe and Kim Zolciak for finally acting like adults and burying the hatchet. We don't see that much on this show and it should be applauded.

Now back to our regular Housewives lunacy...

Walter didn't make it to the reunion but it wasn't for a lack of trying. The man wanted to be there and when Bravo turned him down, he sent his boys to back him up.

NeNe called it from the beginning. Walter and Kenya just didn't pass the smell test. Minus 12. Although Kenya's a nutbar and Walter's an ass, I did think they were a couple, at least on some level.

But it's unclear whether Walter wanted a seat behind the sofa to defend himself or to indulge in another 15 minutes of fame. My guess is it was a little bit of both.

Minus 10 because if he was willing to be paid off by Kenya to play her boyfriend so they could both be on the show that doesn't say good things about him either.

The part I found most interesting was the conversation between Kenya and Apollo. Why do these two even have one another's phone numbers?

Minus 20. Peter tells Kenya she should have shut down Apollo's text but he's the married man. Why the heck was he texting her in the first place.  Seems Apollo's the one who should have shut that down. 

Apollo seemed to think he's all that and a box of Fruit Loops but I think the reason Phaedra Parks' calling Kenya a whore has as much to do with not trusting Apollo as Kenya. Those texts sounded shady on both sides.

On the flip side, Kandi and Todd were kind of adorable. Plus 18 to Todd for having the good sense to not want to be on this crazy show but respecting Kandi enough to do it.  That girl got lucky with this one.

But I had to laugh when Kandi thought viewers were offended because she prayed. Minus 11.  Honey, I'm pretty sure it's the sex toys they have the issue with, not the prayer.

Poor Porsha was left to defend her marriage solo as Kordell couldn't be bothered to show up.  In reality he was busy filing divorce papers that day. Minus 33. Ouch!

Porsha Stewart was hoping to feel inspired by the ladies of Atlanta when she signed on to do this show and instead she felt knocked down.  Minus 23. I know she's not the brightest girl out there but hadn't she ever watched the show? What made her think this was the place to find inspiration?

I'll give her props for being raw and honest though. Plus 22.  When she said, "We're going through some serious stuff and we put it on TV," I wanted to give her a hug.

Thankfully the relationship episode is over. Did you get your Twirl t-shirt?  Does every housewife now get their own spinoff?  Until next season…

EPISODE TOTAL: -19!  SEASON TOTAL: -343!
