They don't really give you another chance.

- Too many chances.

Of course, I'm trying to figure it out for her, because--

excuse me if I'm overstepping at this point--like,

it's a high-risk pregnancy, you know.

She's more mature, you know,

and it's other health issues that, like--

- See, there you all go going in on my age again.

- I'm not going in on your age. I'm just being realistic, Kandi.

Yeah, he knows.

Ayden is well aware of where his father is,

and he knows how to communicate with his father.

He knows how to send him emails,

and he does so on a very regular basis.

- The last I spoke to him, he was kind of like,

"I haven't spoken to them," and, you know,

"Nobody's answering the phone for me, and"--

You know that, right?

keep it real with him, and I said,

"Bro, like, you're a great friend,

but you're a horrible husband."

I mean, he always had a love for you, and I knew that,

and it's just-- it's whack the way it went.

- Yeah, it's whack, yeah.

- You know, it's just disturbing.

And, you know, it's tough for him--

- Oh, yeah, because y'all were in a facility together

at one point.

- At one point, yeah, we were.

He was like, "I'm gonna come home and hittin' that thing."

- So he used to talk about me way back then, child.

Because we met when, you know, basically, we were teenagers.

- I mean, y'all had the formula to take it to the top.

- You got it. - Together.

- He was living the American dream.

- Knowing that he failed at this

is very, very, very, very hurtful for him.

- Hindsight is 20/20, so I'm sure Apollo

is definitely remorseful now,

because he's had plenty of time to think about his deeds.

I hate it turned out like this, but, you know, he lost his way,

and like you said, he was a very bad husband.

But all things happen for a reason, and,

you know, we got two great children.

- Coolest little kids ever.

- They are great. You know, they're happy.

They're healthy.

I mean, I can't ask for anything more.

- Right.

- I can't be upset about it, because, I mean,

I got the best thing out of this relationship

in the world, my kids.

- Hello.

- Can you see me? - I cannot see you.

- No? - Uh-uh.

- Okay, how about now?

Wow, this angle right here, all you can see is my boobs.

Okay, wait a minute.

- Oh, I bet you are okay with that angle.

Even though we talk every day,

I'm just like, "You've got to see me."

I know I'm probably playing with fire going down the road

with these Skypes and another long-distance relationship.

But I've got something going really good with Oliver myself.

- Really? This is just a house dress.

I was just in the kitchen putting up some things.


This is the first time that I've had a latin lover,

and I'm liking it.

Me and my Porsha. [laughs]

That's how you say my name, mm-hmm.

So have you ever had a back girlfriend before?

- So only latins.

- Was it the culture clash, or, like, what was it?

- Oh, well, all righty then.

I've been going to the gym, like, every single day.

Even though I felt good in Miami,

I just was like, "Okay, I want to work out a little bit more."

So, like, I've lost, like, 7 pounds.

- [laughs]

- Oh, I didn't know you were, like, totally a butt guy.

- You know what?

You always have the best answers.

I love a man who knows what he wants,

and Oliver seems like he's ready to go for it.

I think I even had on a thong when I met you.

- Oh, really?

It wasn't my smile?

- Get it. Get it, girl.


- You're right, you're right.

Use what you got to get what you want.

Nothing's wrong with that.

After my last runaway,

I'm actually into a man that's running towards me.

So you just down there being a bachelor, huh?

- Oh, okay.

Well, you know, a lot of people in Miami,

they just like to be single and mingle.

Are you ready for a relationship one day?

- [garbled]

- Huh?

- I can't hear you. It's breaking up now.

This better not be a sign that I don't need to move forward.

Well, let me give you a good look at me before I go.

And I'll just text you or we can Skype again tomorrow.

- All right.

♪ ♪

- I haven't painted my nails in forever,

so I don't know how this is going...



I am going somewhere.

Hee-hee, this is funny to me.

Thank you to this social circle giving me something to do,

somewhere to go with my man on a school night.

We, like, for real's grown.

Quincy, how's Mommy's lashes doing?

Look, I'm here. How do my eyes look?

You see him blinking?


- Oh, Todd.

What's up, babe? - What's up?

- I really don't know what to wear.

- That look like Queen Latifah in Chicago.

Yo, this is not the Emmy's.

This is a music video release. I'm not dressing up.

I'm not putting on no blazer or nothing.

Yo, you pregnant. You get a pass.

- I'm excited about showing everybody the video.

I've seen it. I love it.

But I'm just hoping that everybody is positive.

If it sucks, they can throw shade

at your ass; they definitely can do that.

- Do you look pregnant in the video?

- Well, I think you can definitely see it in,

like, one or two shots.

You know, things didn't go too well with our last video party,

but I'm praying that everything will go right with this one.

- Why are they playing it without sound?

- Oh, ho, ho, ho.

- Who's coming tonight? - Porsha and Tanya, Cynthia...

- I ain't gonna be coming to all the events

if I'm the only dude.

- Excuse me. This is my event.

- Oh, true, true, true.

- So you've got to come.

I told Phaedra.

- I might get a check tonight.

- Oh, I don't think she's gonna bring a check at the place.

- It's been weeks since Kandi's spoken to Phaedra.

No response. I haven't heard from her.

And just like the song my wife wrote,

if I'd have got my check,

there wouldn't be no unnecessary trouble.

- If Phaedra doesn't bring up the check tonight,

don't you bring it up either.

Just be cordial.

- I ain't gonna say nothing to that lady.

- Be nice. Be cordial.

- Of course, Babe. God don't like ugly.

I'm gonna get mine.

Jesus will fix it.

- Coming up next...

- What up, party people?

- Kim looks like a confused prostitute at Disney World.

What is she thinking with that outfit?

- That was awesome. - Thank you.

Mwah. Todd.

- Todd won't show out at a party, I hope.

- We just got here.

- You gonna do an announcement or something?

- Yeah, I want us to do the announcement together.

And Roger's pressing play.

This sh** gonna work.

- It got to work. - Yeah.

- Right.

- Yep.

It feels good to be here tonight with Peter on my arm.

Peter looks good. I look good.

Yes, honey, yes.

- I look good. I feel good.

I'm working my hot pants and my boots.



I still don't have it right.

What up, party people?

- Kim is serving me some old nasty thigh high boots

and some leather short-shorts today.

Okay, Tootie.

- You have shade for me? What? I didn't do anything.

- No, no, no, no, not that kind of shade,

some Cynthia Bailey shade, girl.

- Some shades, okay. - Yeah.

- Honey. - Hey, baby.

- This is Chris, Kim's husband.

- How you doing, brother? - Good to meet you, brother.

- Hi. - Hi.

- Welcome, beautiful. - Hi, how are you?

Hi, how are you?

Don't try it.

- How you doing?

Hi, good-looking. You good?

- Yeah, I'm doing good. I'm great, yeah.

- Good? Okay.

This is the first time I've seen Peter

since Cynthia's eyewear party.

I'm really glad that we're cool again.

Did Cynthia tell you about I'm renovating this house?

- Yeah, yeah. - Oh, it's called Moore Manor.

- Yeah, it's called Moore Manor.

- We just call our home Kim and Chris'.

- Right.

- Kim looks like a confused prostitute at Disney World.

What is she thinking with that outfit?

- Girl, bye. - Hi, gorgeous.

- All right, ma'am.

Where's Kandi?

- I haven't seen her.

- Well, no, you're definitely enough,

but the guest of the night should be here.

- Yay, here they are.

- Okay.

- Hi, ladies.

How y'all doing?

- Good. How you doing? - Good.

I'm glad all the girls came to support.

- That's good.

- But if Todd and Phaedra run into each other,

I'm praying that Todd won't show out at the party

or anything...I hope, anyway.

- I know that you and Phaedra have sh

that you've got to settle.

- You think you need to talk to her about it, though?

I know you thought it was a favor, but this is what I do.

This is how I make my living.

- Basically, I've lost kind of the trust.

Until you speak on it or give me my money,

I really I ain't got much to say to you.

This thing has been going on for two years.

If Phaedra cuts the check, I'll shut up,

and I'll drop the issue completely,

and let's get back to being cool again.

Get it out, let's deal, and then let's move on.

- Hi.

Have you all seen the video? - No, we haven't.

- Okay, thank you, God.

Hi. - That shirt is cute.

- Thank you. Kisses.

I don't want to bend too much, child.

- Hi, ladies. - Hi, how you doing?

- Welcome, how you all doing?

- Cute dress. - Thank you.

Y'all look nice.

- So are you ready? - I'm so ready.

You got your water. I done turned mine into wine.

Let's do this. - Let's go.

When they see the video I want them to say,

"Ooh she looks good."

Or, "Oh, wow, she was pregnant when she did that?

Oh, what? I didn't know she could move like that."

Positive thoughts.

- Give a little bit of background,

and then we gonna play it.

They'll be able to see it here and down there.

- Okay, you want to talk first?

- No, you get their attention.

- Attention.

- Oh, here we go.

- Hello.

[cheers and applause]

First thing, we want to say thank you

so much for coming out to support tonight.

We really appreciate that.

It's funny, because when I first really started

being around Demetria, and she was talking about

going in the studio, you know, I had mixed feelings

about working with people that we were in

the same circle with.

- You know, sometimes that doesn't always

go well when you do friendship and business.

- Right.

- Interesting.

- Thank you so much for coming, you guys.

[cheers and applause]

- Definitely.

Here we go.

I can barely even tell she had a little bun in the oven.

- You can't even tell she's pregnant.

- Yeah, you can't, you can't.

I thought it was Kandi's song.

I did not know that song was Demetria's song.

Everybody seems like they like the video.

Unnecessary trouble

[cheers and applause]

- Come on, girl.

- Thank you so much.

- You did a good job. - Oh, my gosh.

You look amazing.

- That was so good.

Lay it back, lay it back, honey

Kandi made that video.

Her song is super catchy.

Like, I think it's gonna be good.

I don't remember how it goes, but I think that song

is gonna do pretty good.

- All right, y'all, I'm gonna go check on Todd.

- Okay.

- There you are, babe. - That was a good job.

- Thank you. - It was really good.

You might be getting another Grammy soon.

- That was awesome. - Thank you.

- You did good. Mwah.

Todd, if you got a second, you'll stop by my office?

- I will. - All right, good to see you.

It was awesome. - Thanks for coming.

- It was really, really good.

Todd has been hiding behind Kandi

and having her do all his dirty work,

so I'll be woman enough to approach him myself.

I want this all to be over once and for all.

That was really cute.

- It was real cute.

- Thank God we had sound and the actual video.

- Exactly. - I know.

- [laughs]

- Not a messy mood.

- Did you peep that when she was like,

"Can you come by my office to talk?"

Did you say something to her tonight or was she just...

- She must have said, "Hey, I might as well let him know"--

which I thought was a good thing.

- It was all good seeing everybody.

- Yeah. - Yeah.

- I even got to talk to Todd, which was nice.

Todd was having a major issue with me

about my pregnancy video that I did

with him the day before I had the baby.

- The exercise video? - Yeah.

So I invited him to come see me at the office,

so we'll figure out what that's about.

- I thought it was cool too,

but it kind of caught me off guard.

I was like, "Oh, okay."

- Yeah, I think we gonna be good.

- Let's just deal with sh**, and that's all it is.

- So he's holding hard feelings, like, this whole time?

- What kind of problem does he have?

- I don't know, because he got all the money.

I ain't even got a product, child, but okay.

- You didn't even put it out.

- I did not.

I haven't made a coin off of it, but he made 30,000 coins.

Are you sure that he got paid? Like, you know that for a fact?

- I wrote the checks. - Oh.

- And they cashed.

I did pay your husband $25,000-$30,000.

- You still owe him $8,000.

- $5,000.

- So it's coins from the husband

that done kept you all apart all this time?

- I don't know, so--

- I mean, I'm talking about you and her; forget Todd.

- Well, no, no, we're cool. We're fine.

- At the end of the day, I think if you didn't

put out the product, and he got paid for production,

I think that should be it.

You might want to email though instead of meeting

with him, honey, because I don't know.

You know, people these days and their money.

I don't need him acting up on you nowhere.

You got that old taser?

- I got the taser, child, and a .357 snub nose.

- Hello, pretties. - Hey.

- You know, I heard the gossip about my people,

so I had to walk over here.

I didn't know what the hell was going on.

- Gossip? What kind of gossip?

- You know you all be gossiping and sh**, darling.

- Never. - Nah.

But they was going in about my people.

I heard some shiznit.

- Wait, tell us what you heard.

- Well, you know, about friendship being broken money.

But I think it was a lot more than that

that broke a friendship.

- Coming up next...

- You were sitting here like, "What, really?

What, really? You just told me, so I told you."

- I wish I had a bucket of water for his thirsty ass.

So I had to walk over here. - Gossip? What kind of gossip?

- You know you all be gossiping and sh** now.

I heard some shiznit. - Wait, tell us what you heard.

- About friendship being broken by money,

but I think it was a lot more than that

that broke a friendship.

But I'm not getting into your stuff,

but I just heard it walking by, like,

"Well, damn, really, that's what we're doing?"

- Well, it looks like you're getting into it.

Don Juan is totally sticking his nose in business

that he doesn't even belong in.

I wish I had a bucket of water for his thirsty ass.

Did you drink tonight?

- I'm cool, but that just is foul

that you out here talking about it

at an event that you just came from them.

That's not cool. - It was nothing negative.

- Wait, here's what I'm saying.

- You kind of came over here with some negative energy.

- I heard from walking by, you,

"Oh, the friendship was broken over some money

that you didn't even put out."

And it's like, "But the work was done."

- Okay, well, I'm telling you it wasn't negative.

Don Juan, what is wrong with you?

- Well, why are you so extra with it?

- I don't want you-- you're loud.

You came up her, like, really abrasive.

- Well, you're being abrasive right now.

- I'm really not. - You just put on your smile.

But you were sitting here like, "Well, really?

Well, really? Well, really? You just told me so I told you."

You did all of that; well, I just came over here

because I heard it.

- You know I wouldn't have came over here

if I wouldn't have heard it.

- We were not saying anything negative about anybody.

We're here to support Kandi. - And I'm glad.

That's all I'm saying.

- I was just talking to my friend,

asking her a question, and now you're coming over here

and hearing half of it.

- I've got kids to take care of, and...

But yes, I'll be leaving. - Thank you.

- Don Juan, you really need to have several seats

and find you some business of your own.

- You're not entertaining anybody.

I'm hot, and tired, and bothered.

- We've just got other things to do; I've got to get home.

- No, and I want you to get home, and I get that, like,

but you get what I was saying, Phaedra,

obviously, because you didn't say nothing.

- All right, so let's go. - Bye, Don Juan.

Get some water and get some rest.

- Well, I hope you do too.

And go get the man that left.

- I will, honey. - Go get the man that left you.

That's all I'm saying. Go get him. Go get him.

- You're mad at me? Oh, my God.

Don Juan, oh, my God, go home and just change your tampon.

Don Juan's pink panties are in a bunch tonight.

- Girl yeah, I was not gonna hand it to him, that child.

- I don't owe Don Juan an explanation

or even a response,

because I don't fraternize with my friend's workers.

- Dust in the wind, child.

- Next time on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta"...

- I heard Porsha with the,

"Y'all fell out over some money?"

- You sitting up here chitchatting

about my husband, that will make me mad.

- We have a problem.

I don't want us to have an issue.

- This was the original budget,

and then I have the cancelled checks that you sent me.

- I needed you when I was a teenager.

I needed my dad.

- We do the best we can with the cards we're dealt.

- You don't trust me, because Phaedra

needs me a little bit more.

She has lost the father of her children.

- She wanted him to go before he even left to go to jail.

You are believing the mother****ing hype.
