‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Recap: Porsha’s Wifey Duties Clash With Vegas

By: Jillian Bowe / March 10, 2013

Isn’t the ability to act crazy and to let your hair down the real allure of Las Vegas? Somehow, Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta newbie Porsha Stewart didn’t get that hint on her itinerary. Last week, the laides moved their trip from visiting NeNe Leakes in Los Angeles on the road to sin city.

Tensions still mounted high after the ladies broke the unwritten rule of mentioning Kenya Moore’s former boyfriend Walter’s name at dinner. The former Miss USA looked as though she would uproot a mighty sequoia when Phaedra and Porsha kept glowing about all the wonders that is Walter.

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Sunday’s episode: Strip Is A Tip.

The women seemed to have let the minor hurdle in their trip take a back seat once they hit the desert playground. The women planned to visit the Las Vegas staple, The Crazy Horse strip club, to let their hair down on their first night in town. Unfortunately, Porsha chose that moment to be a party pooper and declare her husband Kordell would never let her attend such a thing and refused to go.

Did Porsha forget the old saying, “Whatever happens in Vegas STAYS in Vegas?” Or is she still trapped in the 1950s where whatever her man says is law? Lighten up Porsha, nobody thinks you’re going to run away with a stripper! Later, NeNe told Porsha that although she’s married to Kordell, she didn’t have to act like a Stepford Wife while kicking it with the girls. Ms. Leakes informed Porsha it was a girls’ trip and they all came to Las Vegas to hang together to get to know each other more.

Right on NeNe! What’s the point of heading to one of the most indulgent places on the plant, only to have limitations? Porsha maintained she didn’t want to go to a strip club, because it was her choice and she felt sorry for how the girls were being treated at such an establishment. OK, Porsha, which is it? You can’t go because your man said so, or you just don’t like exotic dancing?

After the pow wow, Kandi Burruss hosted a little adult toy party courtesy of her Bedroom Kandi line. All seemed to be forgotten until Phaedra Parks cracked a joke about Walter and Kenya’s sex life that didn’t go over with her former friend. Fed up with the drama, Kenya chose that moment to rip into Phaedra for the treatment she received when their business venture went sour. Phaedra fired back that she was the wronged party. After all, Kenya did dress up like her to embarrass the legal eagle.

Haven’t we seen this all before? Those two women wouldn’t spit on the other if they were on fire. Why even bother to go down this street again? Cynthia Bailey became the voice of reason when she told the two, they both betrayed the other and needed to apologize to move forward. Oh Cynthia, it must be fun living in Never Never Land since Phaedra and Kenya will neveradmit their wrongs.

Buzz Moments

OMG!: Phaedra complimenting a stripper for her “south of the border” waxing job after thorough inspection.

Thank you, TV gods.: The women agreeing Porsha will soon grow to resent her husband with all the rules and restrictions he imposes. You’re married, not in jail girl!

Awk-ward: Kandi giving Porsha a pregnancy test in her goodies bag. That is one quick way to bring the party to a screeching halt.

Hotness: Cynthia’s afro. It just sang, “Viva Las Vegas”!

Fab-u-lous: The Las Vegas accommodations. A girl could get use to kicking it in there.

Can. Not. Wait.: Kenya seeing Walter at Peter’s party since their breakup. You know there will be some squabbles there.
