This week’s episode is all about the “booty” – who has the best one and who is going to make a video about working out for a better one. In other words, who has got enough back to make the most bank. All of this stems from Kenya and Phaedra’s falling out over Kenya’s fees for producing Phaedra and Apollo’s Donkey Booty workout video. Seems Kenya wanted way more backend than Phaedra was willing to give. And we all know how much drama happens when Kenya doesn’t get want she wants.
The episode begins at the Bronner Brother’s Hair Show, an event on my personal bucket-list, where Cynthia is serving as a judge and Kenya is just there to get attention. The girls and their best gays – Derek J and Miss Lawrence – spend some time making nice with each other and making digs about Phaedra’s physique. (Way to support your fellow sisters, ladies.) The group, which eventually includes Peter, decides that Cynthia has a Stallion Booty that is way better than a Donkey Booty, which immediately gives Kenya the idea to make her own workout video.
Kandi goes to Derek J’s salon for a weave touch-up, and he tells her all about Kenya’s plan to usurp Phaedra’s video idea with one of her own. Kandi calls Phaedra, so both she and Derek J can clue Phaedra in on all of the drama. They all agree that if they’re not careful, Kenya will “bootleg” all of their good ideas and that there could be Bedroom Kenya coming to a website near you if they don’t keep her in check. Phaedra also drops the best catty line of the night when she says Kenya has no business making a workout video with her “Six Flags Scream Machine booty full of bumps and lumps.”
Back in the Atlanta suburbs, Porsha decides to take advantage of Phaedra’s falling out with Kenya to form a closer bond with Phaedra who can offer her some advice on having it all – career, marriage and motherhood. Both ladies admit that marriage is hard, which leads to a discussion of Kenya’s attempts at fake marriage and how she keeps burning all of her housewife bridges. Porsha is glad that she and Phaedra can be friends now that Kenya has shown her true colors, and Phaedra admits that Kenya is the “Devil’s little sistah.”
We also get to see Cynthia do some work with her modeling agency this week by helping to cast and put on a children’s fashion show to raise money for HIV awareness. But despite a parade of really cute kids who seem to know how to “WERQ” like Little Nenes and Little Cynthias, it’s really just another setting for the ladies to grouse at each other about which booty video is the better idea and who has the right to produce one after Kenya admits to Phaedra’s face that she’s stealing her plans.
If you look both workout videos up on Amazon, only Phaedra’s is available for order now. I just hope Phaedra didn’t use Kenya’s Gone with the Wind Fabulous for background music because it makes LuAnn de Lesseps Money Can’t Buy You Class sound like a masterpiece. You do have to admire all of the housewives for getting paid, even if they don’t have to work very hard for the money.
