Real Housewives Of Atlanta | Season 8, Episode 1 Recap

  • Pin It

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta are finally back for season 8. Bravo’s highest rated show ever came back on the air tonight and it didn’t disappoint.

Kandi Burruss and her new husband Todd Tucker are expecting their first child together. The couple were trying to get pregnant for over a year and were finally able to do so via IVF (In Vitro Fertilization). Married To Medicine‘s OB/GYN Dr. Jackie tells Kandi she need to take it easy as Kandi suffers from fibroids.

“Any time you’re over 35 years old, they say it’s a high-risk pregnancy,” Kandi says in her confessional. “I’m not going to lie. If we have a girl, we’re probably gonna try again.” The couple are expecting a boy.

Kandi’s husband Todd informs her that Apollo Nida, Phaedra Parks’ estranged husband, isn’t doing too well in prison. Well duh. Todd, agreed to keep Apollo’s motorcycles in his garage. Todd’ states that, “He hasn’t seen the kids. He says right now, he only calls once a month. He was calling so often, they don’t even answer the phone.”

Todd also says that he helped Phaedra with her fitness video that was never released. He offered Phaedra discounted services, and she hasn’t paid him. Todd wants Kandi to confront Phaedra, but Kandi and Phaedra aren’t on the best terms after last season.

“I don’t f*ck with you ‘cause you’re shady, shiesty and you’re talking sh*t. If you do that to us, there’s no telling what you’ll do to anybody else,” Todd tells Kandi about Phaedra.

Todd needs to take Phaedra to court if she owes him money, that’s not Kandi’s place to be his bill collector. If he does go to court he should hire Bob Whitfield as his lawyer, as he beat Phaedra is court a few season back during his divorce to Sheree.

Porsha Williams is back fulltime on RHOA and is ‘dating’ 24-year-old Buffalo Bills football player Duke Williams. Her other gig, co-host at DishNation, is going extremely well. The ratings are higher than ever. Porsha wants to introduce Duke to her family, she sets up a romantic afternoon at a hotel room, with champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and gifts — to welcome Duke back to Atlanta.

“I totally kind of felt a little bit like a sugar mama. I’m on the other side now!” Porsha says in her confessional. Ok Porsha.

Cynthia Bailey weakly confronts her husband Peter Thomas, of five years, over the cheating video where he caresses a woman’s neck and appears to be touching her breast.

Peter defends himself and says he was wearing his ring and the woman is just a friend and nothing is going on.

“I was having a conversation with the person. I leaned over. I know her. She ain’t trying to f*ck me, and I’m not trying to f*ck her.”

It isn’t good look Peter and you’re wife shouldn’t have to tell you what appropriate in a marriage and what isn’t, that was a punk move and response. If this is what’s ‘caught’ on camera, can you imagine what’s not caught on camera?

Cynthia seems to be more concerned with how the ladies will react to the drama.

“You know how these girls talk! Now you just gave them a reason to open up their wide mouths again.” She tells him.

Later Cynthia confides in her sister, Malorie, about her marital problems. Of course we all remember when Cynthia and Peter were getting married, Cynthia and Malorie’s mother along with Malorie wanted to hide the wedding license so the wedding would invalid. So I’m not Malorie is a reasonable person to talk to about this.

Malorie says on the video, “It is a form of cheating, but it’s not having sex. If he wants to make this marriage work, he’s gotta spend less time in Charlotte.”

Which surprisingly I agree with. How on earth could Peter be out of town so much and he and Cynthia expect this marriage to work?

Malorie asks Cynthia if she’s still attracted to Peter with his clothes off. Which is a strange question to ask even your sister. Cynthia admits that she isn’t.

“Physical attraction is important, but I’m more attracted to someone’s mind. It’s not like Peter was a supermodel when I met him. When I married Peter, I signed up for better or for worse. I didn’t look at the video and think, ‘Okay, I gotta walk away from my marriage because of this,’” Cynthia says as she cries.

Kenya Moore now feels at home in Georgia after relocated three years ago. Kenya takes Cynthia to see the new home she has bought in Buckhead, Georgia. Kenya’s new home is 500 feet from Sheree Whitfield unfinished home – Chateau Sheree. Kenya of course dropped some unnecessary comments about Sheree.

“She might need to borrow some coffee from me, or some money for a light bill.”

Kenya’s shell of a house is a mess and I’m surprised Kenya and Cynthia didn’t wear hard hats while in the location. It is 6,000-square-feet and has 5 bedrooms and needs a lot of work done. Kenya claims it will only take 3 months to fix.

“Who were the previous owners, Freddie Kreuger or Jason?” Cynthia asks. “If I had to spend the night at Chateau Sheree or Moore Manor, I’m going to the Chateau. For the obvious reasons!”

Cynthia later has a party for the launch of Cynthia Bailey Eyewear. Invited to the event were the ladies along with Marlo Hampton and original RHOA alum, Sheree Whitfield. I thank the reality gods for this. Please fitness masters, instill the urge for Sheree to release a fitness video!

Peter arrives and Kenya start in on him asking why he’s late.

“I was with my video people,” Peter responds.

Why Kenya thought this was her business to get into I do not know.

Peter and Kenya go back and forth. He claims he’s innocent, while Marlo tries to play peacemaker even though she says Peter is guilty.

“I strongly believe in giving people the benefit of a doubt. But the way Peter is behaving, seems to be the behavior of a guilty person,” Kenya says in the confessional.

Cynthia arrives and makes her grand entrance in a kaftan and bikini, she looks fantastic. As the ladies chit chat, Sheree makes her entrance after hilariously hugging Marlo earlier. That’s surprising as the last time we saw Marlo and Sheree they were ready to rip each other wigs off.

Marlo asks if Sheree has met Kenya. Kenya responds they met through a hairstylist. Then messy Kenya says she is Sheree’s new neighbor and that the neighborhood have complained about Sheree’s property which is unfinished after four years. Kenya dubs the property “Chateau She Can’t Pay.”

“The neighbors have been complaining, the whole neighborhood has been asking about the house,” Kenya tells Sheree.

Sheree explains that the process takes time, and that anyone who doesn’t know that should keep renting.

“Is it mold in there?” Sheree asks Kenya of her dilapidated mess which Kenya calls Moore Manor.

Kenya and Sheree go back and forth.

“I’ve actually upgraded the whole area, including your house that’s in a ditch,” Sheree tells Kenya.

“I’ll be in the ditch in three months, and you will be in a tent outside because your bitch ass can’t move in yet!” Kenya replies.
