The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Episode 17 Recap: Naughty or Nice?

by at . Comments

After finally seeing Apollo Nida in prison on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Episode 17, is Phaedra Parks ready to move on?

Yes and no, it turned out.

If you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, you know their history, and you know that feat is much easier said than done.

Especially with the feds involved. But we'll get to that in a bit, as it was one of several components to a relatively drama-free finale.

Yes, drama-free.

While there were seeds of future drama sowed here and there, it may have been the tamest season-ender in the show's eight years.

Consider that the bulk of The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 8 Episode 17 was devoted to one of Phaedra's over the top parties.

And an uncomfortable massage between Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas that we wish we could unsee but never can. Thanks Bravo.

One thing we can expect to play out dramatically at the reunion starting next week is the high tension between Parks and Kandi Burruss.

While Phaedra was away visiting Apollo, federal agents were apparently tipped off about the whereabouts of her husband's possessions.

Nida owes restitution for his crimes, big time, which means his valuables are fair game for the feds - and they came a knockin' alright.

Search and seizure visits at both Kandi and Cynthia's homes were quite conveniently timed, and Phaedra was clearly the prime suspect.

She wasn't about to cop to it - yet, at least - but you can expect this to come up again. As for Parks' beef with Kandi's husband Todd?

According to Todd, Phaedra's promise to pay him for the video was only half-kept. Literally, she only paid him for half of it, he claims.

Watch out at the reunion.

Elsewhere, Kandi and NeNe Leakes made up, and Sheree Whitfield and her ex-husband Bob worked on their reconciliation, slowly.

What did you all think!?
