Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta picked up in the immediate aftermath of NeNe Leaks’ big freakout during her “Bye, Wig” party.
As you will recall if you watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, NeNe flipped out during the party at Marlo Hampton and then ripped a camera guy’s shirt when he attempted to walk into her closet after Kandi Burruss and Porsha Williams.
NeNe was furious, and she said it was because the closet was a mess, but the ladies persisted, and that’s when NeNe bit back.
When the episode got underway, Porsha, Kandi, Marlo met up for some lunch to discuss what happened.
“I’m just confused as to when the laughter turned to rage,” Kandi said to the others, adding:
“NeNe did say, ‘Don’t go in there,’ but then the camera men started to walk towards the closet, and she just started ripping shirts off.”
Porsha added that she had “never felt that type of fear and anxiety” before and that she was more scared than she thought she would be, but it was down to her pregnancy.
“I was shocked when I realized that NeNe had put her hands on the crew,” she said.
“I just didn’t realize it was that deep of a situation — but apparently, to her, it was.”
Porsha and Kandi opened up about running downstairs after NeNe got physical, but they maintained that she chased after them.
“Are you sure she was trying to get to you?” Marlo wondered as Porsha confirmed Kandi stood between her and NeNe as the latter screamed in her face shouting.
“You were super frazzled,” Kandi admitted to Porsha. “You were putting your belt on when you came out.”
Marlo wondered what was going on with the belt.
“It got took off,” Kandi mused.
“You are so bad,” said Porsha.
But Porsha was not about to open up about what happened.
“Nothing happened with the belt,” Porsha told producers. “I’m not really talking about that because our relationship will be ruined.”
In the aftermath, Kandi managed to patch things up with NeNe via text, and it made Porsha feel like she “covered her ass and left mine out to dry.”
“I just wanna talk to her, face to face,” Porsha said.
“I’m her friend, and if she’s our friend, we also have to be real. ‘Girl, we are here for you, and we love you, but how you acted — that’s not okay.’ I love NeNe, and I totally feel for her situation, but for me, the tables have definitely tuned.”
“I just don’t think that it’s an excuse for her to put her hands on anybody or to treat her friends like that.”
It sure sounds like NeNe is on thin ice.
The other big event during the episode was Kandi’s burlesque show, and Marlo wasted no time in causing some trouble.
Tanya sam thought it would be funny to push Marlo off the couch at the party and all hell broke loose.
“You may not need to drink, either — like Shamari,” she said to a stunned Tanya. “You guys both need to take AA together.”
“No, being serious, I love you to death,” Marlo said to Shamari.
“I think you’re fabulous. I do get worried when you drink, though. I just feel you get a little too out of hand. I just feel like you need someone to talk to because there may be something else there.”
Shamari was pissed and took to a confessional to air her frustrations about the whole situation.
“I don’t know what the hell Marlo’s problem is with me, but I don’t have a drinking problem,” she said.
“I am a mother of twins that every now and then likes to go out and let her hair down. Mar-ho, you wouldn’t understand anything about that because you’re not a mother. You may be a motherf–ker, but you’re not a f–king mother.”
“I don’t care what anybody says; Shamari does have a drinking problem,” Marlo told the camera. “This is bothering me. So I’m like, ‘What’s really going on?'”
We’re sure we’ll find out more next week!
