The Real Housewives of Atlanta had another party this week, this time for Kandi’s 35th birthday. Unfortunately, a surprise guest upsets Momma and THG is here to take you through all the drama in our +/- recap!

First we get to recap last week’s drama when Peter and Apollo nearly came to blows at Kim’s baby shower. Kim’s ticked and rightfully so. Next time she’ll remember to “keep the ex-cons and a$$holes off the guest list.”

But Phaedra steps up and earns a big Plus 10 showing up to Kim’s with a gift basket and an apology. She may not have been able to stop the men at the time but at least she did the right thing coming forward and saying she was sorry.

Neither Cynthia or Peter bothered. Heck, they were five hours late and didn’t even send a gift. Minus 15 because that’s just beyond rude.

Speaking of Cynthia, try as she might to mend fences they just seem to burn. She calls her sister over to talk to Peter about the incident at her wedding a year ago. Who could have guessed this wouldn’t go well? Minus 10.

You can’t force people to make up and nothing got accomplished here except for dredging up bad memories that won’t soon be forgotten.

Later, Cynthia and her sister argue about Peter’s new bushiness venture. Unfortunately, Cynthia doesn’t know her sister is right.

Bar One is in financial trouble before it’s even begun and Peter’s going to look to his wife to bail him out. Minus 9 because that’s just going to widen the divide between Cynthia, Peter and her family.

Kim’s getting prepared for the big event. No, not another party.

She talks to Phaedra about what it was like when she had her son. Phaedra says she had an epidural, morphine and was “crazy as a vampire in sunlight.” Plus 5 for being honest but let’s hope Kim has an easier time.

Having had only girls, Kim’s concerned about having a boy and takes some lessons on diapering a circumcised baby. She’s nervous about what to do with a penis. Plus 7 to Kroy who already seems to be a pro with the diaper detail. 

Surprisingly Kim’s not the only one wondering what to do with the penis in the room. Thanks to Phaedra, Kandi’s 35th birthday went from an elegant rooftop affair to a strip show and masturbation tutorial. 

Before we go there, I have to ask if anyone else thought NeNe was going to fall out of that dress. I know the cleavage was plentiful at this party but something about NeNe’s outfit had me worried about a wardrobe malfunction. Minus 6.

Kandi, Phaedra and some of the other guests enjoyed the stripper but NeNe and Kandi’s mom ran out of the room. Minus 8 because this really wasn’t the venue for such a spectacle and although it was ridiculous, NeNe and momma overreacted.

And poor Kandi was left feeling like a scolded five year old on her 35th birthday. Minus 10. Better luck with birthday number 36.
