This was a relative nothing burger of an episode: very vegan, no beef!
Lettuce begin the recap:
After Cynthia Bailey heard rumors from multiple women that Will Jones might be fooling around with other ladies while dating her, she decided to back off.
Based on her Instagram, he no longer seems to be in her life.
But ultimately, she didn't seem all that upset. He was more a boy toy curiosity at this point. She seemed more peeved that her ex husband Peter Thomas showed up at Kandi Burruss' party and didn't bother to say hi.
Cynthia later had a somewhat awkward meeting with Peter. There's no doubt Peter still holds a candle for his ex wife. But she just wants to be friends. So that dynamic remains a little strained. He simply didn't want to meet her boyfriend Will.
"I still have feelings for Ms. Bailey," Peter said to the cameras. "I'm still nervous when I get around her which is not good but I'm working on that."
Cynthia's conclusion: "I don't want any man to dictate my happiness."
As part of her bucket list, Cynthia with NeNe Leakes put together a girls trip to Barcelona Spain. Two semi-regulars in Shamea Morton and Marlo Hampton get to join in as well since Kenya Moore ditched the trip to hang with her invisible husband Marc Daly and Kim Zolciak bowed out, citing medical issues and a need to be with her husband as well.
Potential blow up? Kandi's mom Mama Joyce met up with Porsha Williams to figure out yet again why she fell for Phaedra Parks' lies about her daughter.
Porsha said she was being loyal to Phaedra, who insisted the wild stories about Kandi supposedly wanting to drug and rape her were not at all true. Mama Joyce surprisingly felt compassion for Porsha and simply said she has to be careful who to be loyal to. (Amen to that!) "I don't want beef with her," Porsha said.
Where's the beef? Porsha decides, as a new vegan, to have a "no beef" dinner with some of the ladies. Indeed, the three ladies she has the biggest "beef" with couldn't make it (NeNe, Kenya, Kandi). Her conclusion: "They don't like me."
A trio of non-regulars showed up: Shamea, Marlo and Kim. In the end, nothing of interest happens - unless you count Marlo burping loudly.
Gullible? Most interesting exchange of the night happened between NeNe and Cynthia about Will:
"I don't want him to use you," Nene said to Cynthia.
Cynthia: "I'm just getting back out there. With Will, he's cute so I got excited!"
NeNe: "It's okay to be excited but don't be stupid."
Slipping away: Kenya wonders if she's pregnant. She and Daly are having sex twice a day when they are together. She skips out on Barcelona because two previous trips left a sour taste in her mouth. "My priority," she said, "is my family." This could ultimately mean her spot on the show could be in jeopardy, too.
As for having a baby? So far, there has been no news since this episode aired. "Time is not on my side," she said, about pregnancy since she's 46.
