RHOA Recap: Cynthia Says NeNe Was Too Vulgar with Kenya + Marlo Confronts Kenya
Things get worse.
As Kenya and NeNe continue to argue, things get so heated that NeNe says she should spit on Kenya. She mimics the motion while Kenya is sitting across from her. The other women restrain NeNe.
And Cynthia feels like what NeNe said to Kenya was “too vulgar.”
Marlo eventually takes NeNe away, and Kenya says the only issue she has with NeNe is that NeNe called her baby a buffalo.
Porsha then says that NeNe was insulting Kenya, not her child. When NeNe and Marlo return, Kenya tells NeNe that she didn’t like the buffalo comment. NeNe says that Kenya is just looking for sympathy, but she would never talk about people’s kids. She was talking about Kenya but she apologizes for what she said.
Porsha says that the women can revisit the topic another time because it doesn’t seem as if people are willing to move on, namely Kenya.
Kenya storms off.
Marlo then says that she has something to say to Kenya. She wants an apology for how Kenya took over her wig launch event. Kenya tells Marlo that she’s always been an aggressor towards her and she was just clapping back. But certain things are off-limits like Kenya’s issues with her mother and her husband.
After Marlo says Kenya is doing a good job acting, Kenya gets upset and storms off.
Kandi runs behind her and tells her she can’t refuse to hear Marlo out. But Kenya snaps and says that she’s dealing with too much stuff in her personal life for the drama with the women. She breaks down crying and pushes Kandi when she attempts to hug her.
The women vent.
The next day, Cynthia, Kandi, and Kenya talk about the crazy night they just had. Meanwhile, Tanya says that Kenya didn’t want to acknowledge how she was wrong with the cookie lady situation.
Porsha feels Cynthia didn’t stand up to Kenya like she should have. NeNe says Kenya is allowed to get away with murder.
Kenya gets irritated after Cynthia says that she does feel like NeNe really was trying to make peace with Kenya at the beginning of the trip. And Kandi says she’s gone through worse with Phaedra and Porsha. But she’s now able to be cool with Porsha. So she wants this for Kenya and NeNe so they won’t ruin the trip.
As for Porsha, she believes Kenya will just use what NeNe said to her the previous night as a reason to not let their feud go.
Team building is a success.
Kandi has the ladies do a team-building event. The women are paired in the following ways: NeNe and Porsha, Kenya and Tanya, and Cynthia and Marlo. They have to help guide each other around the obstacles placed with blindfolds on. So it’s imperative that they listen to each other.
Kenya and Tanya win the first round. Marlo and Cynthia lose.
Porsha and NeNe win the second round. Cynthia and Marlo lose again.
The second event includes the women being tied together and dragging each other through another obstacle course. This is a difficult one for the group. But Kandi hopes that the exercises have put all the women in better moods. She also hopes they drink a lot less.
Kandi has another plan.
After the team building event, Kandi tells Cynthia that they should act out a Greek Tragedy about NeNe and Kenya. Cynthia will be NeNe. Kandi will be Kenya. She’s hoping it will make Kenya and NeNe laugh. Although Cynthia agrees to this, she’s not sure this is going to go well. They plan to do this at the goddess party.
All the women arrive at the party. Everyone is supposed to name themselves.
NeNe is not having it.
After they pick their names, Kandi and Cynthia say they will be acting out a Greek Tragedy as NeNe and Kenya since they refuse to have a conversation with each other.
NeNe is not happy about this.
Before they can get started, NeNe says she has to go to the restroom and she doesn’t want to see this play out anyway. As she walks away, the producers try to talk her into staying but she’s not hearing it. So she heads back to her room and the other women adjourn their goddess party. Of course Kandi and Cynthia are disappointed.
