The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 23 Recap: Reunion Ruckus

by at .  Updated at .

It's reunion time in the dirty south as The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 23 brought the whole gang back together to trade barbs.

With security beefed up this year, no full-on beatdowns occurred ... so that's a start.

In the wake of last Sunday's Season 7 finale, we expected a lot from The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 7 Episode 23. So what did we learn?

That Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida had quite the combative history, for one. Not that we needed Andy Cohen to tell us that, but he went there.

"Did he ever get physical with you?" asked the venerable host and producer.

"My husband definitely has a temper, and can get out of hand," Phaedra said, however, "I just don't know if I need to discuss that with you, to be honest."

"I want people to be proud of me as a mother and a wife," Parks explained. "I need time to make the appropriate decisions for my life and children."

After viewers saw Apollo on the run after nearly assaulting Phaedra, many wondered if he physically attacked his wife. If he did, Parks isn't saying.

Regardless, Parks told Cohen she has still not yet filed for divorce, despite all they've been through ... nor has she taken her kids to see Nida in prison.

Meanwhile, NeNe Leakes and Kandi Burruss mixed it up from the start.

Cohen brought up a pre-reunion NeNe Tweet that read, "This girl is such a hater of mines! She has so much s--t to say about me! See u Friday boo boo."

"She has spoken so negatively of me all season," Leakes said, admitting she was talking about Burruss. "This girl really hates me. I never did anything to her."

"I don't hate you. I hate your superior[ity] complex," said Kandi, who told the housewives' queen bee straight up, "I hate when you talk down to people."

"It's great to see you get emotional," said Burruss after NeNe got into it.

"So, I'm a bad friend?" Leakes replied, getting heated.

Burruss responded, "I know what you showin'."

"You don't know me," said Leakes. "I see you."

"We see each other!" Burruss shot back.

Indeed they do. And it ain't pretty.
