We all know that the ladies of Atlanta are heading toward a volatile reunion, but what happened on the ‘RHOA’ finale that triggered that crazy reunion brawl? Read on for your full finale recap!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta has been quite dramatic this season, to say the least. Leading up to a smack down of a reunion, the Season 6 finale episode was no less eventful. Kandi performed in her musical debut, NeNe had a medical emergency and Cynthia turned up the heat in the love department, but did Kenya and Porsha get into another blowout? Keep reading to find out what went down in the dirty South!
Kandi and Phaedra Hit A High Note, But Kenya Hits The Lowest Point
It’s two days from the opening night of Kandi’s musical on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, and the final episode opens up with Kandi rehearsing, while Todd is concerned about ticket sales. The couple is also worried about Momma Joyce‘s critique on the musical.
Besides Kandi’s nerves for the musical, there are a lot more emotions going on in Atlanta. Kenya is grieving over Velvet‘s passing, and she joins her ladies, including Cynthia, to bury her beloved dog. “Velvet was everything to me,” Kenya said through tears.
Speaking of burials, Phaedra is officially a funeral director. Her adorable son baked her a cake to congratulate her on completing her classes, leading to her career accomplishment.
The Ladies Love Lives Take A Turn
On the other spectrum of celebration, Porsha’s mom and sister come over to her home to congratulate her on her divorce — with liquor. “I think that’s what we call a shot,” says Porsha to which her mom replies, “No, I think that’s what I call looking forward to the future.” Porsha explains that she didn’t take Kordell to court because he’s not going to be in her future so why have his money in her future? Porsha takes off her ring, throws it in her drink and the Williams ladies cheer to Porsha’s end with Kordell.
While Porsha is ending her romance, Cynthia is ready to kick her love life up a notch. She surprises Peter with a sexy charade — she’s draped in a revealing red gown, the house is covered in rose petals and she has the champagne ready to pop. Peter lovingly makes fun of her efforts, but it all goes over well. The lovebirds head upstairs to the bedroom and the cameras cut. Oh la la!
Kandi’s Musical Has Arrived
Kandi’s musical, A Mother’s Love, has arrived and the cameras follow her, as she prepares and gets ready for the big show, which costars Porsha. She is bummed that NeNe can’t come because she’s not feeling well, but she’s in good spirits that the show is sold out and the audience is bustling with the other housewives and even Tyler Perry!
And at the last minute, Momma Joyce shows up and Kandi is nervous that her mother may not approve of the autobiographical play, which takes aim at her tough love. Momma Joyce looks pretty pissed when the curtains close, but she admits to Kandi that she loved that play, explaining that they can agree to disagree.
Turns out, the musical sold out five performances in Atlanta!
NeNe Suffers A Major Health Scare
The ladies discuss Nene’s absence from the musical and they are all concerned about her health. Cynthia said that she had spoken to NeNe and she said she wasn’t feeling well, but a few hours before the show she was admitted to the hospital. NeNe’s lungs had collapsed. So scary!
Thankfully, she is okay and back in action.
The Final Moments Clear Up All Of The Tabloid Rumors
In the final moments of the finale, Bravo grants viewers the courtesy of clearing up all of the crazy rumors that surround these ladies lives…
Apollo, Phaedra’s husband, has indeed been charged with bank fraud and identity left. And no, Phaedra will not be representing him in court.
Porsha did not receive any alimony in her divorce, which is now final, but she’s moved on to date someone else. And no, it’s not the same man that Kenya is dating.
But the episode does bring some clarity on Kenya’s dating life: “Kenya recently jetted to Africa to reconnect with her prince. Unfortunately, she came back without a car seat for her Bentley.”
Kandi and Todd followed up on the success of their musical collaboration with an April wedding! The two are finally husband and wife!
And as for those reunion rumors, we’ll just have to wait until next week to find out and see what really happens. Bring it, ladies!
The RHOA reunion airs on Sunday, April 20 on Bravo.
