Marlo comes by NeNe’s store.

Things are going well for NeNe’s boutiques in Atlanta and Miami. So she’s opening up a third.

The two of them discuss Gregg. He’s now open to getting chemotherapy.

Both women are thankful Gregg is doing better.

Kandi and Cynthia meet up.

Cynthia is excited that she has her own drink coming out with Seagram’s.

She’s going to throw a party to celebrate.

Porsha is discussed.

Kandi doesn’t think she’s going to her gender reveal because Porsha hasn’t been coming to Kandi’s events because Porsha doesn’t like Kandi’s friends.

Both Kandi and Cynthia talk about Eva’s drama.

Neither are sure of what to believe.

NeNe says things seem fishy and Marlo says they could start a Go Fund Me page for Eva.

The subject changes to Kenya.

NeNe says she and Kenya were good  but she’s now coming for her on social media. She’s convinced Kenya is coming for her just for attention.

When NeNe asked what’s going on with Kenya, Cynthia told her that Kenya feels like NeNe hasn’t really been supporting her during her pregnancy.

When Kenya threw her baby shower, NeNe wasn’t invited. So she got sarcastic on social media and gave fake congrats on posts related to the shower.

Cynthia tells Kandi she invited both women to her Seagram’s event and she hopes there won’t be any drama.

Kandi doesn’t know why NeNe was upset about not being invited to the shower because NeNe doesn’t even like Kenya.

At this point, NeNe doesn’t even want to attend Cynthia’s event. She’s starting to feel like Cynthia is more of a friend to Kenya than she’s been to NeNe. But Marlo tells NeNe she has to go.

Eva vents to Michael.

She’s upset that her bridesmaid has been spreading rumors about her.

And safety is important to her as she doesn’t want her ex to locate her. However, she now feels like safety has been compromised seeing as her bridesmaid has been telling people where Eva and Michael currently live.

In a green screen interview, Eva says they moved for security reasons.

But producers flashback to a scene from three weeks ago of Eva telling her wedding planner they are moving so Michael can be in the city.

Then producers flashback to Eva telling Kandi that they want to buy a new house but they are moving into a rental while they figure out the house and renovate it.

Following that, producers flashback to Eva telling all the women a week ago that every time she moves, her ex Kevin finds them. So she has to live in multiple places.

In a green screen interview, Eva says that they are now living in her comfy condo “that has a lot of security.”

The whole thing with her former friend and bridesmaid has been hurtful.

But Michael cheers her up and tells her he’s going to build her a new house.

It’s the day of Porsha’s gender reveal party.

As guests start arriving, Dennis tells Porsha that the tent they were supposed to have outside isn’t there.

The staff tells the couple that they couldn’t get the tent to work.

“This is some bullsh*t.” – Porsha

She starts crying and tells everyone she wanted it to be like a carnival.

But Tanya, Shamari and Cynthia try to convince Porsha that things aren’t that bad.

“It is like a carnival.” – Tanya

As Cynthia, Shamari and Tanya try to cheer her up, Dennis talks with staff to figure out how to get things right.

Meanwhile, Cynthia wonders where NeNe is. But her attention doesn’t stay on NeNe long because Mike tells Cynthia he’s sure he’s ready for marriage. At this point, Cynthia wonders if Mike has had too many drinks.

It’s time for the gender reveal.

Everyone releases their poppers.

It’s a girl even though Porsha’s popper accidentally shoots out blue.

Porsha is excited to be having a girl.

Cynthia has her Seagram’s party.

As Eva arrives, she says she refuses to address the rumors ever again.

Yovanna gives her a cold glance.

Mike’s whole family is there. It’s Cynthia’s first time meeting them and she suspects a proposal is coming.

NeNe and Gregg arrive.

Cynthia is touched Gregg also came.

Porsha rolls in with Dennis and a pregnant Shamea.

NeNe says she didn’t go to Porsha’s gender reveal party because Porsha rarely shows up to everyone else’s events.

Not too long after, Kenya strolls in with Todd and Kandi.

She sees Gregg and gives him a hug.

When NeNe spots her, she calls Kenya a monster under her breath.

Kenya speaks to everyone except NeNe.

In a green screen interview, NeNe says she feels like it was wrong that Cynthia didn’t give her a heads up about Kenya coming.

After Cynthia says she’s surprised to see Kenya there, Kenya says that Cynthia told Kandi to bring her so she knew she was coming. But Cynthia says she still wasn’t sure.

Kenya has a seat with the other ladies, and NeNe throws some shade about Kenya’s pregnant body.

Marlo speaks to Kenya and tells her she looks beautiful pregnant. They exchange some pleasantries. NeNe keeps taking jabs.

In a green screen interview, Kandi says that it’s wrong for NeNe to be shading Kenya while she’s pregnant.

NeNe becomes even more furious.

Cynthia invites Kenya on stage to give a speech and this angers NeNe.

After this, Cynthia invites Gregg to come up on the stage but NeNe shuts that down.

In a green screen interview, Cynthia says this was an embarrassing moment for her. She wishes NeNe wouldn’t have gotten so angry.

As Kenya prepares to leave and starts saying her goodbyes, she continues to ignore NeNe.

Kandi asks her to come back over to say bye to NeNe but Kenya refuses, sending well wishes to Gregg only.

As she walks off, NeNe questions if she’s giving birth to a buffalo.

Kandi tries to calm NeNe down and NeNe gets a little teary eyed. It’s clear she’s hurt by everything that transpired at the party.

But Kandi consoles her.

Production plays a clip of audio of Kandi telling Cynthia she was mic’d up after Cynthia calls up Kandi.

Possibly not hearing Kandi, Cynthia then goes on to say they need to discuss how they are going to set up Kenya showing up to her event.

“I just want to make sure we was on the same page setting up how Kenya got there.” – Cynthia

“Okay, gotcha.” – Kandi

NeNe confronts Cynthia.

The next day NeNe meets up with Tanya at a restaurant.

Kandi and Cynthia show up.

After NeNe goes off to the side to cry a little, Tanya tells Cynthia and Kandi that NeNe is upset.

When NeNe comes back to the table, she questions why Cynthia didn’t tell her that Kenya was coming to her party.

NeNe tells Cynthia that she hasn’t been as good of a friend to her as she’s been to Kenya.

She also doesn’t understand why Cynthia hasn’t checked Kenya for coming for NeNe on social media. But Cynthia feels like she shouldn’t have to get in the middle of their feud.

At this point, NeNe tells Cynthia that she’s not even neutral. She feels like Cynthia stands up for Kenya but not NeNe.

“I don’t play the social media game. She does it. You do it.” – Cynthia

NeNe goes on to say that Cynthia knew Kenya was coming to her event. Kandi then interjects and says that Cynthia didn’t know.

Cynthia is exposed, again.

Producers than flashback to a scene of Cynthia dancing with Mike and whispering in his ear that she’s supposed to act like she didn’t know Kenya was coming.

NeNe says that Cynthia should have told her that she invited Kenya to the event.

She also mentions that she heard Kandi tell Cynthia that Cynthia wanted Kenya there so she brought her.

In a green screen interview, Kandi says Cynthia really didn’t know Kenya was coming because Kenya told Kandi not to tell Cynthia she was coming.

“I never knew Kenya was coming until she walked through the door.” – Cynthia

After NeNe says that they are closer than Cynthia is with Kenya, Cynthia says that she can invite whoever she wants to her events.

In a green screen interview, Cynthia says NeNe shouldn’t care about this while Gregg is battling cancer.

Cynthia then tells NeNe that after Kenya didn’t invite NeNe to the baby shower, she didn’t want to tell NeNe that she invited Kenya to her event because she didn’t want to upset NeNe when she wasn’t even sure if Kenya would show up.

Regardless, Cynthia apologizes to NeNe for not giving her a heads up.

Then NeNe says it was messed up that Cynthia invited Kenya on the stage to make a speech. Cynthia then says she had no idea Kenya would make a speech.

When NeNe gets emotional, Cynthia takes her to the side to talk privately.

While they are gone, Kandi says she just thinks everything is a misunderstanding.

As Cynthia is talking to NeNe outside, she tells NeNe that she loves her dirty drawers.

“I would do everything for you.” – Cynthia

NeNe tells Cynthia that she can forgive her as she wipes tears from her eyes.

“I should have told you and I will be neutral.” – Cynthia

“I don’t want to feel like I’m losing a friend.” – NeNe

NeNe then breaks down crying.

“After everything I’m going through, I just don’t want to feel that way.” – NeNe

“It will not happen again. I am here for you.” – Cynthia

In a green screen interview, NeNe says she hopes their friendship will survive but she now sees Cynthia in a different light.

Meanwhile, Cynthia says she loves NeNe “no matter what.”

“I will make this right. I’m sorry.” – Cynthia

The two women hug it out.

    By far, this has been one of the dumbest seasons ever.

      They are going to have to come much harder next season.

    NeNe really lost it. And I’m sure Kenya was amused. Smh.

      I hate to admit it but NeNe fell right into Kenya’s trap. I’m so disappointed she couldn’t just pay Kenya dust and keep it pushing. It was the other way around and that was embarrassing to watch.

    Sooo Kenya and Cynthia said NeNe shouldn’t be making a huge deal about Kenya popping up but they made a big deal out of it too to the point that they were out here plotting and having secret phone conversations on how to make it happen.

    I love how pressed Kenya has Nene. Anyway, I doubt Cynthia and Kandi are trying to get Nene off the show. They clearly lied to keep Nene from getting mad at Cynthia but she’s mad anyway. It’s a crying shame grown women can’t be friends with who they want to without Nene acting like a fool.

    If Cynthia wasn’t trying to be messy, why did she lie? And producers put Eva on blast too. They really did show all the different times she lied about her living situation. Makes me think her bridesmaids weren’t lying on her.

    My thing is, if I was trying to hide from a abusive relationship the last thing in the world I would do is join a reality show and I surely wouldn’t be posting everywhere I go and where I’m going to be every 5 mins on social media. I really believe she is broke and I don’t think anyone really cares if she didn’t try so hard to be pretentious and floss. It’s no way in the world I would have an expensive wedding and then fly straight to Greece and then come back home to a small Townhome that needs to be renovated WHILE I’M LIVING THERE WITH TWO SMALL KIDS AND A HUSBAND! She was clearly trying to give an excuse to Kandi about why someone would say that she lives in a raggedy house. If she was comfortable why not stay where she is and have the house renovated or while she was already living there. for her to have to move so sudden makes me think she is blowing smoke. To be honest the Townhouse she was in wasn’t very nice either it was dated and looked small. The only good thing was the elevator. As for Nene I have never seen such a selfish person. She has gotten on my LAST nerve this season.

    NeNe had an entire meltdown over Kenya and I’m disappointed. All she had to do was ignore Kenya and have a great time at the party. As far as Cynthia is concerned, she did some underhanded stuff but I don’t know why she did. That is what I’m not clear on. I just don’t think Kandi nor Cynthia want NeNe off the show. Eva is clearly having money problems and her bridesmaids told the complete truth. It’s not a big deal because she’s not the first. Especially not on RHOA. And I have to say I really love Tanya and Shamari now. Tanya is genuinely a sweet person. I think that’s why she didn’t get a peach. And I appreciate that Shamari minds her business unless you come for her first.

    NeNe was an emotional mess this entire season. And I understand why. But next season she needs to come in there understanding these women are not her friends. Just coworkers. She needs to play the same game they do. Make alliances and secure the bag only. Have real friends outside of the show.

    Kenya is one of the smartest, strategic and cunning housewives in the entire franchise. Cynthia isn’t smart enough to understand that Kenya is using her. Y’all remember when Kenya strategically befriended Marlo to get under NeNe’s skin? That’s what she’s doing with Cynthia. And it works. Kenya sees Cynthia as nothing more than a tool so she couldn’t even bother to invite Cynthia to her wedding. And don’t forget that episode when Kenya snapped on the producers and said eff all these b’s including Cynthia. Cynthia still came outside to try to talk to Kenya after that and Kenya rolled the window up on her and drove off. She doesn’t even like to tell Cynthia anything because she thinks Cynthia talks too much. So Cynthia doesn’t even know much of Kenya’s personal business. They are not real friends. But when she wants to stick it to NeNe, Kenya throws their fake friendship in NeNe’s face. NeNe peeps game but she’s not strategic enough to counter any of it. So she comes off looking petty while Kenya keeps kicking her feet under the table.

    This entire beef smells of “fake” storyline. I dont think Nene cares about Kenya Returning to the show. They shot an entire scene talking about Kenya..who does that

    This season has been off. It’s so juvenile and boring now.
