‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Recap, Episode 8, Season 15: Kim Fields And Cynthia Bailey Confront Kenya Moore Over Gay Rumors
On Real Housewives Of Atlanta Sunday, the episode kicked off with the rumors that Kim Fields‘ husband, Chris Morgan, is “fruity or gay.” Kim kept it classy and didn’t react to the rumors.
“Chris is a wonderful husband and father and we’ve been together happily for 10 years and it’s good,” she said in response.
Kenya Moore wasn’t going to let her off with just a shrug of her shoulders. “I don’t think we really care either way if your husband is gay or whether or not you guys are having tax problems or any other kind of problems,” Kenya said. “You portray like everything is perfect. It’s not really perfect, so we just want the real Kim Fields to show up. You have this wall up and it’s almost like you’re reading from a script.”
Kim abruptly left without saying anything else.
Later in the show, Kim met with NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks. to discuss why Kenya felt the need to target her.
NeNe encouraged Kim to stand up herself.
“You can never be passive amongst this group of ladies,” NeNe explained to the camera. “I’m just trying to help Kim out.”
Phaedra agreed with her fellow housewife and told Kim the best way to deal with the drama is to confront Kenya. “The only way to stop a bully is if you punch them square in the face. We got your back,” said Phaedra.
As the group takes a hike through Dunn’s River Falls, Kim decides to confront Kenya.
“I feel like at some point, Kenya, you’ve crossed a line into disrespect of me that’s not going to be tolerated. So let’s have no communication or cordial communication, but at the end of the day you’re not going to talk about my family, you’re not going to talk about me. I think it’s highly unfair and disrespectful,” she said.
“Congratulations for being able to speak for yourself,” Kenya snapped back.
Kim made sure to keep the conversation going even with Kenya’s attitude.
“I don’t hate you. I’m indifferent to you,” she sighed. “I have come a long way with a lot of girls at the table. Whether we get there or not, I don’t know. I just am not willing to spend any more effort on the cause. If we’re at an impasse, we’re at an impasse.”
Cynthia Bailey also implied that Kenya apologize to Kim for pulling her chair out from under her during a business meeting. Surprisingly, Kenya agreed and apologized.
Cynthia also wanted to address Kenya on the subject of her commercial shoot. “The only thing that was missing, for me, was Kenya.” She then turned to Kenya, “You did come but then when you came you pretty much just got in the paddle boat and paddled.”
“Obviously things went wrong from the time that you asked both of us to work on the commercial. I really did prepare. I had a great concept for you. I actually had two. The fact that you didn’t give me an opportunity to hear me out, honestly, it just hurt my feelings more than anything,” she said to Cynthia in response.
Kenya eventually apologized for behaving immaturely but Phaedra wasn’t convinced.
Real Housewives of Atlanta airs on Bravo on Sundays at 8 p.m. EST.
