'RHOA' Recap: Kenya Moore's Relationship With Apollo Nida Gets Even More Complicated

The Real Housewives of Atlanta made me want a beach and a cocktail. Bad. The “couples” trip -- “couples” being a loose term on RHOA -- continued in Mexico this week. I wanted to dive into that pristine water (seriously, get me the hell out of Boston after this winter), but I’ll dish about the drama before I book my flight.

It was like true confessions for Kenya Moore. The. Entire. Episode. She gives Lawrence an earful about Porsha and Kordell’s “arranged marriage” over breakfast. “He thought he was getting a trophy wife and she wasn’t much of a trophy,” said Kenya. “She was more like a certificate,” Lawrence snickered. Hee hee. She also chats about her lingering issues with Apollo Nida. Basically, she’s all hot and bothered and ready to strip down at any moment.

She gets the opportunity to show her bangin’ bod right after breakfast. The peaches swap their oversized sunglasses for hard hats and their pumps for sandals (I thought sneakers may be passable because they’re in, but no) for a tour of a cave. They freak out one minute into it when they see a slithering anaconda. There was self-fanning, squealing, and even some tearing up going on (mind the falsies, ladies ... get it together), but they venture in anyway. Brave bunch.

Kenya discovers a natural spring in the cave and encourages everyone to jump into the “fountain of youth.” She strips down ... stat. I would probably shed clothes at the ready if I looked like her in a bright yellow bikini, but I digress. Everyone wants to pass except for Apollo -- but he wouldn’t dare swim with Kenya solo after Anguillagate. After some coercing, the majority joins her in the natural spring -- including Apollo and Phaedra.

Next, Kenya organizes a special walk for the women who have been supportive of her dreams of getting preggers. (Code: Everyone except for Phaedra and Porsha.) They meet up with a Shaman who leads them in a ritual to increase Kenya's fertility. There’s lots of smoke (NeNe can’t help but cough exaggeratedly), singing, and sharing about past heartbreaks and pregnancies. Kenya seems to win over some of the ladies as she lets her guard down, but I would bet my Tory Burch sneakers (they are in, I am telling you) it won’t be for long.

Later that night, Kenya crashes the guys’ get-together to confront Apollo. She saunters in while they’re rolling Cubans, drinking tequila shots, and giving Todd advice about Kandi’s mama drama. After a few shots, Kenya asks Apollo to help her pick out the next round of tequila. Originally, Todd chaperones, but Kenya and Apollo wind up sitting together to trade jabs about what went down. Apollo tells Kenya to her face that he could have sex with her if he really wanted to (balls ... serious balls), and she disagrees. Of course, that’s precisely when Phaedra walks in unexpectedly.

What do you think will happen next week when Phaedra confronts Apollo and Kenya? Will there be bitchslapping or what?

Phaedra has serious transference issues with Kenya.Who she needs to bitch slap is her WHORE OF A HUSBAND APOLLO ! He's the one going to strip clubs paying out thousands of dollars on strippers! He won't even communicate with his wife ! Kenya is really Not the problem! It's apparent that Phaedra is intimidated by Kenya but Apollo is the REAL WHORE !

I couldn't agree more.    I'll never understand why she puts up with it.   He keeps her stressed out every minute of every day that I can see...I bet he would learn RESPECT and LOYOLTY if she kicked him out and he had to pay his own bills and act like a grown man.    .

I think Kendra and Apollo both are shady. Her husband spent the entire show looking at Kendra's butt in a Bikini (Side Eye). At the same time Pheadra needs to loosen the ropes he is a GROWN MAN if he is going to cheat there is nothing you can do about it PERIOD she is intimidated by Kendra's baby as I would be but at the end of the day when you get up close and personal Kenya has Horrible skin, Could pass for a man by the face, and her attitude matches


I am thinking Apollo must have some dirt on Phaedra--as mean as she is she should get rid of that zero.

Didn't Kenya saunter over to Apollo? Why? There was no need to have a convo with him about what went on or didn't go on. The conversation that Kenya should have had was with Phaedra woman to woman when it 1st happened, not her husband. The only reason any of the ladies or audience thought more had happened was because of the texts that Kenya referenced during the reunion, she made it seem like they were in a sexual nature, of course Apollo was going to look at her in a bikini, that's y she put it on, especially for Apollo, She has a deep rooted dislike for Phaedra , over a business deal that never got put on paper( no deal) and then she started verbally attacking this woman during and after her pregnancy. Yes Kenya wants Apollo and if Apollo wanted to have sex with her the deed would have been done by now, but I don't think she's really his type and to be honest I don't think Phaedra is. But he is her husband.

I think Kenya could have just had the conversation with Todd there she didn't need to get Apollo lone he didn't even want to go with her in the first place. If she wasn't trying to start more shit with phadra she wouldn't have been pushing Todd to leave and just had the conversation with Apollo. she knows everyone is going to hear about it anyway. And she did start it at the reunion show saying what she said to phadra about Apollo trying to get with her so she can't be mad at him maybe she shouldn't have said what she said to start shit Apollo didn't start it. She pissed me off trying to say he started it and talking crap. HELLO SHE NEEDS A reality check .

Why is Kenya Moore thirsty ass even on the show??? She has no husband and no man, but this bitch always worrying about someone else's marriage. Girl have several seats because you are so lame... Pheadra needs to bust that ass.

Kenya is train wreck waiting to happen! She DELIBERATELY crashed the 'man party' for the purpose of starting s***...she's the chaser; not the chasee!  True, Apollo is not all that in the husband department, (and I keep waiting for Phaedra to kick him to the curb!), and sure, he looked as the wicked witch Kenya stripped down for everyone...he is a man, after all...but Phaedra needs to watch the episode to see how it all went down.  As for the bitch slapping; no one has EVER earned some slappin' like Kenya has!!!  I waited for NeNe to do that; now Phaedra just may be the one to get it done!!

Kenya is the problem she doing everything in her power to piss phaedra off an apollo falling for it. Apollo is showing Phaedra a lot of disrespect this season and its no doubt him and kenya whore had some kinda conversation through text that give him the idea he can sleep with her. Kenya had no business being down there alone with all their men she was asking for trouble and she had no business text phaedra husband in the first place. This why she single an can't keep man she don't a single mam she doing to much trying to be seen by the men that are already taken. Kenya comment from the beginning to peter about sucking on a cigar was unnecessary to say she can call Phaerda shady but Phaedra hit the Kenya Whore Moore on the nail. Kenya this season is actually acting like a whore or mabe she looking for a baby daddy. Even lawrence look at her like she was out of line for wanting to talk to Apollo. She already wreck the train by being two faced when she first came on now she bringing Marlo into she ratchet mess and Lawrence. I love all the rest of the ladies
