Does a $3,000 abstinence ring mean a thing? Did Gregg Leakes really invest $300,000 in NeNe's fame? Would you trust a guy named Mr. Luscious?
Find out the answers to those questions and more on this week's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" recap.
Kandi invites Kim, NeNe, Cynthia and Sheree to discuss relationships on her webcast, "Kandi Koated Nights." NeNe clams up and says she's not comfortable discussing bedroom issues in public. Also, Kandi invites a special guest to the show: Mr. Luscious, a male dancer who gyrates and makes the women squeal.
Never miss a local story.
On a more serious note, Kandi's still upset that Kim never reimbursed her for "Tardy for the Party." Nonetheless, she works on a new (less challenging) version of "The Ring Didn't Mean a Thing." Kim loves the remastered song and says she never doubted Kandi's skills. Yeah, right.
Shortly after NeNe meets with a divorce attorney, her husband's taped radio conversation surfaces. On air, he discusses the divorce and says NeNe got a big head after he invested $300,000 in her fame. The news hits the Internet just as NeNe starts her TV journalism career.
Gregg maintains he didn't know the radio conversation was being taped. He thought he was just venting to a friend. NeNe responds with an emotional rant and says she's done with the relationship.
Kim buys her 13-year-old daughter, Brielle, a $3,000 abstinence ring. It doesn't even mark a permanent commitment. Brielle promises to stay abstinent until she's 18.
In a conversation with NeNe, Kim says she's ready to break things off with Big Poppa and re-enter the dating world. She wants a baby. Wish granted.
Cynthia plans her wedding and leaves most of the details to her stylist, a guy she met while modeling in New York. He has a strange affinity for mumbling and wearing sunglasses inside. There isn't much of a budget, though the wedding planner says the event will cost less than $1 million. Probably.
After giving birth, Phaedra had to stay in the hospital for an extra week due to blood pressure issues. She arrives home and seems fine, though her husband apparently has to carry her everywhere now. Not sure if that was an official doctor's order. They name their baby Ayden.
Sheree breaks things off with "Dr." Tiy-E Muhammad after learning he's apparently a fraud. She confronts him about the issue and he tries to make her look like the guilty one. The strategy doesn't really work, especially when he insists that sometimes women just have to shut up and let men talk.
When Sheree asks him to prove he's a doctor, he asks her to prove she's a woman. Needless to say, the conversation ends quickly.
