New season, new drama! In the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Season 8 premiere, we find out Kandi is pregnant, Kenya has a new 24-year-old boyfriend and Cynthia is dealing with a cheating scandal! The episode is crazy from start to finish and we have the full recap!
Poor Cynthia. Her husband, Peter, was secretly videotaped at the restaurant he owns flirting and whispering into another woman’s ear. During the season premiere of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, we see how emotionally affected Cynthia is by the whole scandal. She and her sister were talking about it and Cynthia completely broke down in tears.
After trying and trying, Kandi and Todd are finally expecting a baby! In the premiere episode, we see the couple getting an ultrasound. The doctor tells Kandi she needs to “cut back” with work considering the high-risk nature of her pregnancy. She’s over 35 and she has fibroid issues, which is why she needs to be extra careful.
Things have also changed for Porsha since last season, she’s no longer single! She said she met a guy on social media and he’s a lot younger than her — he’s 24! His name is Duke and he’s a Buffalo Bills football player and he’s so cute! While Porsha’s love life is going well, Cynthia’s is crumbling. Her husband Peter was caught on a video getting cozy with a mystery woman and Cynthia is mad and embarrassed.
Kenya just bought a new house for herself to try to start a fresh new life. She brought Cynthia to see it, and although it needs a lot of work, Kenya believes it was a good investment for her!
Back to Kandi and Todd — we finally got down to the bottom of why Kandi and Phaedra’s relationship has changed for the worse over the past year. Apparently, Phaedra used Todd’s services to create a workout tape (which she never released) and she never paid Todd for it. He holds a grudge about it and that must be the reason Kandi and Phaedra’s relationship has been suffering.
Cynthia’s sister paid her a visit to talk about the Peter video situation and things took a very emotional turn. Cynthia said she really wants to make her marriage work but she’s embarrassed about the video and concerned. “It’s ok to cry,” her sister said and Cynthia broke down like we’ve never seen before.
After months of developing an eyewear line, Cynthia threw a big launch party and Peter showed up before her and without her — interesting. He went to say hi to Kenya and she was not hiding her feelings — she wasn’t happy with him. The two got into a really intense screaming and cursing match!
The drama did not stop there. Returning cast member, Sheree Whitfield, arrived to the party and was in a screaming match with Kenya in no time. It turns out, Sheree and Kenya are new neighbors and Kenya had heard some people talking about Sheree’s unfinished house and how it’s disruptive to the neighborhood. Of course, Kenya had to go and bring that up at the party and the two started full on fighting. This is going to be one heck of a season!
