The BAM! Squad

Ep 2: In which we learn it's never cool to text another girl's man, even if it's just to go buy chips together.

on Nov 11, 20130

It's been a full week since the notorious ear pull incident:



So let's review the fallout.

Kenya may not have fared so well in her battle with NeNe, but she did get a big win in her legal battle against her former landlord. Paparazzi stalking ensued, and she was able to share the good news with the world.



NeNe, in a surprising move, reached out to Kenya to talk through what happened at Cynthia's event. But she wasn't exactly ready to whip out a violin for Kenya's sob story about the near-eviction...



But she did offer some good advice when Kenya called her out for inviting Walter to the wedding. In NeNe's experience if you get stuck seeing an ex, "that's when you really twirl, honey." Amen!

After seemingly moving past the issues they had with one another however, NeNe wants to get Kenya to do the same with all the other ladies, particularly Phaedra, for breaking the "G-Code" (that's the cool way to say Girl Code FYI) by texting with Apollo.

This led to perhaps an even more important piece of NeNe Leakes wisdom: "All this dick in Atlanta and you gotta take somebody else's man? Girl no."

Elsewhere in the ATL, Cynthia was dealing with some serious fibroid issues that were causing her to gain unwanted weight. (Personally I think she should have that extra cupcake if she wants it no matter what Peter says, because she always looks good! And who doesn't love cupcakes?)

We also learned this week that Kandi usually has the best snacks at her house (i.e. chicken wings) at her house. Don't give in to the wine and cheese pressure, Kandi! Make wine and wings happen!

Oh and Porsha debuted a super short 'do at Kandi's wing-less event.



Oddly enough, it was very similar to the look she sported as Dorothy Dandridge on last season's finale.

Phaedra, if you're no longer going to be angry with Apollo, then stop being upset with Kenya, because they both exchanged text. He texted her, your girl Kandi saw that with her own eyes. So he was not totally honest with you. You're married to him and he to you, he's the one who owes you the respect. Not that I agree with texting someone's husband, but Kenya is a single woman who owes no one an explanation!

Phaedra! Phaedra! Phaedra! Apollo is flat our lying through his teeth! He and Kenya did the nasty. You know he's lying Phaedra, DAM! Apollo what were you thinking young brother? You have a beautiful! successful forward thinking wife who loves you believes in you and wants to trust what you say. And she blessed you with two beautiful sons. How can you gamble that on something that laid with Mike Tyson? Nobody goes behind Mike Tyson, NOBODY! Looks like all Hollywood and L.A. did a hit and run on KENYA and now you Apollo. SMGDH! You best stop talking noise to Phaedra and try your dam best to seek redemption. Like Kandi said, Phadrea is ride or die for your butt. Man get you act together and understand it is not you that Kenya wants, she wants your wife's head on a platter, and you are handing it to her. Apollo, tell your wife the truth, show her those hotel receipts from the hotel you were force to leave and the one you went to, to escape Kenya aggressive advances. That should not be hard to do. You need to cover your wife better than that Apollo. The only way that demon Kenya can get in your marriage is through you. Tell Phaedra the truth so she better deal with this issue and you and Kenya don't make a fool out of her. Phaedra is your woman Apollo, Cover her! Shame on you Apollo!!!

I saw the scene where Apollo and Phaedra talk about what was in these texts.  What floored me was the fact Apollo told Phaedra he can text who he wants and that she brought Kenya into the picture so it's her fault.  That tells me he has no respect for Phaedra, the marriage and himself.  He also lacks self-control obviously.

I say where there's smoke there's fire.  Apollo being a married man should have never took her number there is obviously something going on text wise or maybe more.  Apollo and Kenya are in the wrong.  Kenya did break G-code and Apollo is no better he is asking for trouble.

My Southern Bell, Phaedra...  I feel for you girl because you crack me up :)  You're Such A Freakin Lady (if that makes you boring... oh well, i like watching you, Kandi and Porsha)...  but that husband of yours is displaying such a lack of respect for you and your marriage that he's looking just as disgusting as Kenya right now...  (and it's really hard to believe nothing happened between those two - real hard to believe)

Phaedra tries to hard to watch what you say.  You are very conscious of the cameras that's why you comes across as fake and why Wendy Williams thinks you are boring.  If this is truly your reality, then why not go with it and let it be seen.  The ugly faces are getting old and so are the negative comments toward your cast mates (that you think are cute/jokes). No one likes a phony and nothing you say seems sincere.  Looser...

After hearing some of Phaedra's definitions from her book last night with Andy, Kenya is definitely a "free spirit"!!!

Pathetic Porsha said her husband was a Queen but wants to work it out! Meaning...... She wants to live with Kordell/ daddy so she can have the finer things in life! Who cares if he's gay!!! Only an idiot would want him back! I don't care how rich he is! Know your worth !!! I can't deal with stupid!

My problem with Kenya is that she doesn't remember from day to day what lie she told . So she has to make up an even Bigger Lie to cover for the last one. Doesn't see know she is Filming a TV Show! We know you are speaking Kenya we can hear ya Girl! We see your Lips Moving! Time to get your Meds Checked! And Twirl on out of Atlanta Girl!  

 

   We are done! Don't care about your so call "EX" (I always thought that was reserved husband as in EX Husbands) and this Eviction Mess that no one knew about Until you went to the Press. Oh My God Please just go away.

Tacky...best describes Kenya, Loud describes Nene, Wannabe is Phadera, Yes man is Cynthia, Deer in headlights is Porscha and Smart is Kandi...out of all of these ladies Kandi is the winner...she came with Money and money that she earned before any of them became a "Housewife"...Why on earth would you study for the bar and come on a reality show ( not unless it was to knock Judge Judy out the park) fool of nonsense, Nene better hope that her acting skills on the other shows endear her to producers otherwise I see a short list here...folks are going to get tired of this show soon and as the season progress I am wondering am I going to be one of them...I caught a nice moment with Kim and Nene at her wedding and deep down I feel that Kim and Nene are real friends...unlike Cynthia who has a domineering husband who is running through her pockets like water...she shout out Porsha but did she check her home status...Kandi is only going to let you in her life through the bathroom window  and for that I am pleased...Todd and her will make it because they understand Public life and "real life"...sorry to be a hater but that is my take...what I would like to see is Nene and Kim come up with their own show...that would be some hot stuff...both women could put a spin on some topics...Hey Nene why do you and Kim do a talk show together?  I bet you would shot Wendy Williams out the park and Kim would help the other other understand what it is like to be in the company of the hood...just saying...

I see that this season Kenya is going to be filler. No one really wants to film with her. She obviously doesn't have any real friends. So, I expect all season for her to go on and on about this "eviction" and Walter because she has no real storyline.

Mama Joyce liked Todd just fine until, he said she could not move into the second house; remember Mama Joyce found that house with the second house in mine for her self!

We're only TWO episodes in and already the ladies aren't blogging timely.  Big Snaps to NeNe who is being consistent.  The rest...shame on you.

 

So over the Kenya foolery.  Seriously - she's delusional.  I feel most for Kandi right now.  She's in a tough spot.  She loves her mom but is in love with Todd.  Time for Mama Joyce to back off, pray that if this is for Kandi great and if not that she will see for herself.  But she needs to allow her daughter the freedom to choose her own path without her interference.  It came across that Mama Joyce was more concerned about HERSELF than her daughter's happiness and that was not a good look.

Kenya is doing the same thing to Atlanta that the Gorgas did to New Jersey - making the show unwatchable.

 @elegant9485 I hope NeNe continues to do well.  Show business is very fickle and the shows that she was on were all co-produced by Ryan Murphy, who loves NeNe.  However, that's not enough--she has to expand (although maybe he will cast her in one of his other shows).  Still, I think NeNe is savvy enough to get at least a few roles, however minor they may be.  Also, she is the highest paid housewife ($1M per episode?), so if she is prudent with her money, she and Greg can live quite comfortably. \

 

Kandi is smart about her business.  She had just chosen not-so-good men, but, hopefully, Todd is breaking that bout of bad luck!

 @CBerry You are so right!  I just told some co-workers the same thing.  Last season when Candi and Todd were in bed talking about the pre-nup and Candi moving her mother in.  Todd told Candi that they were just getting use to living together.  She also stated that she would eventually want her mother to live with her.  She's just mad that her "Cash COW" might not be as giving with Todd becoming Candi's husband.

 I think Mama is afraid Todd is going to take her piece of the pie away!  She is only thinking of herself.  And, it is terrible that she would put words in Kandi's daughter mouth.  How controlling can you get Mama????????? You act like the child.

Mama Joyce doesn't want Kandi to make a mistake...that is how we learn through our errors. No one wants to marry the wrong person but it happens and we move on.

Mama Joyce is too controlling no wonder Todd did not want her living with them..who would?

Apollo now admits that Kenya tried to seduce him .  Why he deceided to drop tat bomb on his plump wife in a resturant is beyond me.  But why he feels that it is okay to communicate with a trashy woman who does not get along with his wife is just plan disloyal.

 No comparison!  Kenya is just a delusional witch that thinks all men love her.  She always looks dirty to me, I wouldn't want to touch her with a ten foot pole!

There is no comparison. I think Kenya saved the show after the craziness of Kim & NeNe. We can blame Phaedra, Kenya and Apollo for allowing their situation to get the point as is now. It started with Phaedra and Apollo showing attraction or trying to get Phaedra's attention, then the business deal that with south and the texting between Kenya and Apollo. I still would like to know who started the texting and the first time it happened if it wasn't pertaining to business the person that was out of line should have been corrected. People just love blaming Kenya, but she is not the only one.
