Why did Matt Jordan return to Kenya Moore’s life?

That was one of the bigger questions on The Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 9 Episode 18 when it became apparent that all of the ladies were having some issues with the men in their lives.

When the episode got underway, Porsha Williams explained to the cameras what a “baby nup” was.

“It’s an agreement, so we don’t have to argue later. We can argue now!”

Um, okay then. 

Porsha handed Todd the agreement, and things got very heated. Todd was not impressed with anything on it.

“This is extortion,” he claimed as he realized the agreement was all about Porsha.

“Tell me one thing that’s even in any way to take you out of your comfort zone and be like, ‘Let me give him this,’ because out of the 39 things on here, all of them are for you!” he shouted.

“If you even thought that I was going to say yes to half of that stuff, then I don’t know what kind of person you thought I am or what kind of father you think I want to be,” he said.

“I’m not signing that,” he continued. “And if that means we’re not together, then that’s your loss.”

That was quite the turn of events. Right?

We switched gears to Kenya Moore who claimed she was partly responsible for Matt’s actions. 

“I didn’t slow down enough for him or give him the attention that he really required,” she said to the camera, clearly irate at the state of the relationship. 

Kenya on the Reunion

What we get to see on the show is mostly Matt looking like an ass, but editing can make or break someone on a show like this and it just so happens that Matt is getting the bad edit. 

Elsewhere, Cynthia was planning the show for her new bag line. Her daughter, Noelle and Sheree’s son, Cairo, were both announced to be walking with the collection on the runway. 

Phaedra dropped by Cynthia’s house, and the two women got talking about the party Kenya threw for their divorce. Cynthia continued to stick by Kenya, but Phaedra seemed to think Kenya was out to cause trouble. 

Phaedra confirmed her divorce to Apollo Nida was final and Cynthia realized Porsha was not as much of a snake as she thought she was. 

Finally, Kenya met up with Matt to celebrate the puppies’ birthday. 

“I miss them as much as I miss you,” he said staring at the dogs. Things soon turned sour when Matt said that every conversation he has about their relationship seems to paint him in a bad light. 

“Here I am being pulled back into the darkness and the negativity!” she said.

“Let me point out some of your faults!” Matt fired back. “I can’t with you!” Kenya screamed.

“I had something good, and you ruined it,” he said.

“You ruin everything that’s good!” she said.

“We didn’t have sex in my truck the other night because you wanted to?” he asked.

Things ended on an awkward note when Matt started crying, and Kenya apologized to him. 

Does this mean they’re okay now?
