On the latest episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” the ladies (including Kenya and Porsha) and their men headed on their couples trip to Anguilla, without Kim and Kroy. What more could they ask for? Sand, beaches, drinks, warm weather and their boos- sounds like a recipe for some fun, or disaster however you choose to look at it.
Check out the highlights below:
Kim Walks Off RHOA Set, For Good
We picked up right where we left off from last week’s episode where all of the ladies were seated at dinner talking about their trip to Anguilla. After Kim told the girls that she wasn’t able to travel due to her pregnancy, the rest of the girls weren’t too happy to hear that Kim was trying to change the plan, again, especially since the rest of them had made arrangements to travel during Kim’s specific travel dates. Once Nene jumped in and told Kim exactly how she felt, Kim decided that she didn’t want to be apart of the group anymore, and politely excused herself from the table. After assaulting the cameraman, Kim and Kroy drove off into the distance, which will probably be the last time we ever see them on an episode of RHOA. Farewell!
Off to Anguilla
Finally, it was time for the couple’s trip to Anguilla. Even though Kenya basically invited herself on the trip, and none of the ladies had ever met Porsha before, they decided that they were going to leave all the drama in Atlanta and have fun in paradise (sounds like a great plan in theory, but we all knew that wouldn’t happen). Once the ladies arrived on the island, everyone received their huge honeymoon suites equipped with a hot tub, balcony and outside showers! Except for Kenya, who received a junior suite for her and Walter’s romantic getaway. Needless to say, Kenya was not too thrilled about having to stay in the junior suite, but she was more concentrated on getting proposed to and married on this vacation and didn’t have too much time to worry about anything else.
Keep Your Paws Off Apollo!
After everyone got settled in their rooms, they decided to all meet around the pool for dinner. Now, Kenya has made it clear to us that she found Apollo attractive, and now that they were in Anguilla and Apollo was all dressed in his swim gear, Kenya was on full attack mode and ready to pounce. She pushed Apollo into the pool and he returned the favor by tossing her in the water fully clothed. Phaedra obviously wasn’t too thrilled about seeing Kenya flirt with her man, so the next day she decided to throw on her best donkey booty outfit and remind everybody how she got and is keeping her man! Later in the episode, Kenya decided to push Phaedra’s buttons a little more when she hypothetically asked if she could give Apollo a birthday gift that involved two of her friends, who would she choose, alluding to a having a threesome! Basically, Kenya was looking for Phaedra to confirm that it was okay for one of her friends to sleep with her husband! I’m not sure if Kenya was openly flirting with Apollo in front of Phaedra AND Walter’s face to make Walter jealous or to hint that she had a crush on Phaedra’s man. Either way, Phaedra let Kenya know, “You better get out of my face with that bullsh*t” and told cameras, “keep your paws off of Apollo!” Two snaps

Kandi has landed a spinoff reality special entitled The Kandi Factory, where she turned competitors with mediocre talent into overnight pop stars, as well as a line of sex toys called Bedroom Kandi. Anyone who watches RHOA knows that Kandi has a high “freak number,” so she teamed up with popular sex toy company, OhMiBod, to help create devices that would inspire closet freaks and people who are out in the open as well, to “love themselves” a more.

Singer K. Michelle got a bad break with a record deal that fell through back when she first tried her hand at stardom. After years of writing music for others and trying to get her career back on top, the songbird landed on VH1’s Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta. K. Michelle had a memorable run on the show due to drama but also because of a traumatic incident that involved a past relationship. She alleged that she was in an abusive relationship with a former lover, who happens to be well known in the music industry, and caught a lot of flack from fellow Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta cast members, who were skeptical. However, she stood her ground and maintained her allegations, despite the doubt. She even shared her story with a group of young women as a cautionary tale and expressed her pain through music. K. Michelle is still performing, releasing music and encouraging women to stand up in the face of violence in their relationships.
4. Faith Evans "R&B Divas"
Faith Evans rounded up Nicci Gilbert, Monifah, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt to appear on the hit reality show, R&B Divas. The TV One docu-series revolved around women who Faith felt had some of the best voices but also most underrated careers in music. These women—who were once at the top of their success—were shadowed by cameras as they attempted to get back on track in their music careers but also struggled with drama in their personal lives. In addition to the sisterly bond they formed by supporting each other with their goals, the divas came together to record an album, also entitled R&B Divas. The album focuses on self-love and empowerment and it’s not for profit. The proceeds go toward the Whitney E. Houston Academy, a creative and performing arts private school located in East Orange, NJ.
