The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Episode 13 Recap: Jamaican Jerks, Chickens

by at . Comments

"I still have my Jesus with me, so I'm not gonna knock a bitch upside her head, but had she touched me, y'all would've seen a whole 'nother side of Kim Fields."

- Kim Fields

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Episode 13, the women jetted off to Jamaica for some fun in the sun with their men in tow.

NeNe Leakes big appearance was the big storyline coming in ... 

... but she wasn't the one who ruined the vacay in epic fashion.

Obviously, if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online at all, you know that the shade-throwing drama never stays in the ATL.

In fact, it typically increases whenever there's a trip involved.

During Cynthia Bailey's meeting with Kim Fields and (the unbelievably immature) Kenya Moore, the trip began to go south in a hurry.

Moore accused Bailey of being unprofessional for going with Kim's pitch for the ad, despite Kenya having flaked on the pitch meeting.

Then she called out Kim personally, and in a brazenly ridiculous middle school move, actually pulled Kim's chair away from the table.

While Kim still happened to be sitting in it.

Fields (see above quote) kept her cool despite plenty of reasons to smack the ISH out of her adversary, while Cynthia just sat there.

Why Bailey didn't grow a pair, own the decision to go with Kim's pitch and shut down this display is beyond us, but it is what it is now.

At dinner later, when Peter asked what was wrong and what triggered this massive beef, More was still bitter and in a fighting mood.

"I would like to just take one of these lanterns and set my ass on fire than talk about this" Kenya snapped, to which Peter responded:

"Someone give her the motherf--king lantern."

As Kim began to explain her side of things, Kenya up and left, after which Kim's husband Chris laid it out for Cynthia plainly: 

"As boss, you're the only one that can [this]. Simply go to Kenya and say I made a decision and I need you as my friend to live with it."

"And also say, ‘You're not my BFF,'" NeNe added.

Of course, it's not that easy, and the way in which Cynthia characterized their relationship made its way to Kenya the very next morning.

Kenya wouldn't let that crucial point go either, eventually forcing Cynthia to tell her flat out: "In my mind, we're not best friends yet."

That, friends, is just a bitter pill to swallow.
