All hell breaks loose as Cynthia’s husband Peter and Phaedra’s husband Apollo prepare to fight.
Drama erupts at Kim Zolciak‘s baby shower during The Real Housewives of Atlanta Nov. 20 episode. While Kim wanted this to be a special celebration for her boyfriend Kroy Biermann to mark the birth of their first child together, Cynthia Bailey‘s husband Peter and Phaedra Parks‘ husband Apollo destroy the party by getting into a heated fight.
The baby shower starts out smoothly as Kim’s daughters give a heartfelt speech about Kroy. The family then opens presents. But as the night progresses, the housewives wonder where Cynthia is.
Cynthia finally arrives with Peter during the last 20 minutes of the party — sans a present. Kim is overwhelmed by the party and walks outside to take a break. When she comes back inside, all hell has broken loose!
Peter is talking about opening his bar, until conversation turns to the topic of a recent interview where he insulted Sheree Whitfield and Phaedra. Apollo starts getting defensive and blows up when Peter brings up his recent interaction with the police (he was pulled over by cops about a week earlier). The two begin arguing and chairs get pushed back. Peter and Apollo are in each others’ faces as security starts to walk over. After a lot of shouting, Apollo maturely decides to walk away instead of letting it turn physical.
Cynthia drags Peter out of the party. “I’m so embarrassed,” she cries to the cameras.
Phaedra is proud that Apollo defended her, but also glad that he restrained himself.
Meanwhile, NeNe Leakes has her own drama going on. Her estranged husband Gregg shows up at her house to pick up their son Brentt. They discuss how their split is effecting Brentt — he seems torn up about having to spend time at two different homes. NeNe and Gregg are still heading for divorce, but she can’t emotionally bring herself to sign the papers just yet.
Sheree checks in on the demolition going on at the property where she plans to build “Chateau Sheree.” “The contractor tells her it will be around eight months before the construction of the new home will be complete.
Kandi Burruss‘ two-timing and the ongoing battle between Sheree and NeNe are downplayed during this episode. But it may just be the calm before the storm.
