‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ recap (‘Thelme and Louise Take Flint’): season 9, episode 11


To review, she attacked Kenya Moore on a season six reunion show. She got into a tussle with Cynthia Bailey season eight (though Cynthia started it). She got into some fight the same season with some non-“Housewives” person that “Housewives” partly captured on tape.

As a result, she was shown earlier this season taking an anger management classes. She promised to be more zen like with the other ladies and to date, she has not laid a finger on anybody.

But based on how she reacted to Kenya bringing up the subject again on tonight’s episode, she’s still struggling with her emotions when people get on her case.

Porsha Williams has had anger issues on the show, with three examples caught on camera.

To review, she attacked Kenya Moore on a season six reunion show. She got into a tussle with Cynthia Bailey season eight (though Cynthia started it). She got into some fight the same season with some non-“Housewives” person that “Housewives” partly captured on tape.

As a result, she was shown earlier this season taking an anger management classes. She promised to be more zen like with the other ladies and to date, she has not laid a finger on anybody.

But based on how she reacted to Kenya bringing up the subject again on tonight’s episode, she’s still struggling with her emotions when people get on her case.

Kenya asked her about anger management classes in a bit of a provocative way because that’s the way Kenya is. If Porsha was truly okay, she wouldn’t have taken the bait. She would have said, in a humble way, yes, she was taking classes, that she has learned how to deal with it and everything was better. Case closed.

Instead, she copped a defensive attitude immediately. She said she felt ambushed. She then blamed Kenya for starting the fight during the reunion show rather than take responsibility for own actions. She said she was taking classes for herself, not for them.

Kandi instantly sensed Porsha’s attitude was not a person who was handling anger as well as she thinks she is. “She doesn’t think she has a problem,” Kandi told the cameras. When Porsha accused Kandi of “piggybacking” on Kenya’s “curiosity,” Kandi got upset and started cursing and the two sides verbally tussled.

Porsha got up and left. Sheree Whitfield accused Kenya of provoking drama (she does) and in her own provocative way wondered why Matt Jordan was breaking windows on her, implying Kenya was “asking for it.” (Kenya said Matt may be violent but has not laid a hand on her.) Kenya then said Sheree had been victim of domestic violence, which Sheree denied.

Kandi left the scene. So did Kenya and Cynthia. This left Phaedra Parks, Sheree and Porsha.

Phaedra had mentioned to Kenya during an earlier episode that Porsha would talk to the ladies about her anger issues at some point. So when Porsha confronted Phaedra about it, Phaedra denied that had happened despite evidence otherwise. Porsha warned Phaedra of befriending Kenya because Kenya is dangerous. (Phaedra should know given her history with Kenya but she at some point decided to forgive her.)

The trailers show these dynamics will shift yet again, with Porsha wondering if Phaedra could be trusted any more than Kenya.
