Shamari and Ronnie walk off to talk to everyone else who showed up.
Out of the pits of randomness, Shamea is brought up in the conversation for whatever reason, and Eva says “Shamea ain’t black with a Q”.  Eva, what are you trying to say about Shamea right now?
Kandi tells Eva she is being “shady as hell right now”.  Kandi asks us, what did Eva mean when she said Shamea is not black with a Q?  She hopes it is not because Shamea is dark-skinned.  Kandi tells us she likes Eva, but she did not like what Eva said at all.

Kandi’s friend Jamie arrives.  Kandi recalls that Porsha once threw Jamie out of her house, and fought her.
They all talk about Porsha, and Kandi fills in Jamie.  Jamie says her friend was dating Dennis, but then found out he was dating Porsha, and there was a “big situation”.  It turns out Dennis had been dating Jamie’s friend for two or three years.  Hmmmmmmmm, indeed.

Kandi says that cannot be right, because Dennis was dating multiple girls at that time.  Carmen says some men do date multiple girls at the same time.
Kandi says he tattoos people’s names and possibly faces on him.  Jamie says Dennis got a tattoo of her friend’s name.
Cut to Porsha telling Ms. Diane that Dennis told her he is going to get his face tattooed on his back.  Dennis also told Porsha she was the first person to bring this kind of joy into his life.  Porsha’s mom is in heaven, and Porsha is glowing.
If  Dennis is cheating on Porsha, this is going to be an utter disaster.
Porsha tells Ms. Diane that Dennis always has a freshly prepared meal that he purchases.
Cut back to Jamie telling the Kandi and Carmen that Dennis has some girls cook for his other girls.  Jamie says Porsha needs to check his receipts because someone else is going to the grocery store who is not Dennis.
Porsha’s mother gives her a huge hug, saying how happy she is that Porsha found a good man.
Kandi says she is going to keep quiet about this.
Oyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to all of this.

What did we learn this week –  I do not want to see Porsha get her heart broken again.  I hope Dennis is not giving out Rolex’s on Porsha’s time.  I’m not a fan of Dennis, and have a feeling you feel the same way.

What was up with Eva this week? When it comes to Cynthia, do models just get really catty about other models?  Is this just something that happens in nature?
Eva, what did you mean when you said Shamea is not black with a Q?  Are you seriously looking down on darker skinned black women?

Ronnie DeVoe, no one needs your mansplaining advice.  Not Kandi, not anyone else.  Kandi is right, focus on you and yours.
