To Porsha’s shock, Phaedra stated that wasn’t precisely true, however as an alternative it was one thing that she’d heard from another person (another person = not Kandi). That actually appeared like information to Porsha and her face fell flat in complete shock.
“The lies! The lies!” Kandi shouted as Porsha checked out Phaedra, shocked. “I trust you as a friend,” Porsha started. “There’s nothing that I think that you would tell me that could hurt me or damage someone else.” Phaedra was silent, so Porsha continued. “You said ‘first person.’ You said, ‘Kandi told me this.'”

“You should understand that drugging somebody while they’re drinking and taking them home is rape. Y’all accused me of being a f–king rapist! That is crazy!” Kandi screamed. That’s when Andy Cohen stated perhaps they need to take a break. (Ya suppose?)
Phaedra Apologizes to Porsha
Backstage in the course of the break, Porsha confided in her sister, Lauren, who could not consider what she was listening to. “This whole time she lied and used me to hurt Kandi,” Porsha mused. “Like, were you my friend, ever?” Meanwhile, Kandi continued freaking out.

Moments later, Phaedra paid Porsha a go to. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have repeated it,” Phaedra stated.
“You have to understand how f–ked up this is and how f–ked up I’ve been looking standing by your side and holding you down because that’s the type of friend that I am!” Porsha shouted. “You’ve got to give me some answers because what I feel is that you used me as a pawn against Kandi.” Phaedra insisted she hadn’t completed that and admitted, once more, that she’d “screwed up.”

“She lies all the time!” Kenya Moore shouted, although she additionally thought Porsha was a liar, only for the document. “Why did you tell me that Kandi said it to you personally?” Porsha requested Phaedra. Phaedra then advised maybe Porsha had misheard her. Right.
Porsha stated she could not hear Phaedra’s apology proper now and Phaedra then admitted she had informed Porsha it was firsthand info. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have repeated it. I’m sorry. It was bad judgment on my part,” Phaedra stated. She then additionally admitted that she’d been the one to inform Porsha “the Marvin thing.” (ICYMI, Porsha claimed that Kandi’s husband, Todd Tucker, had been telling girls his title was Marvin so he might cheat on Kandi.)
Andy requested Phaedra point-bank if she had completed all of this out of anger, however she denied that. Despite Andy’s encouragement to “own it,” Phaedra appeared incapable of coming clear in an easy manner.

Kandi reiterated she had paid Johnny all the cash she owed him, prompting Phaedra to say that Johnny’s paperwork stated one thing totally different. “Because he made it up!” Kandi shouted.
Andy Puts Phaedra within the Hot Seat … Again

“Calculated,” Kandi interjected.
Andy stated that wasn’t what he was going to say, however that he knew Phaedra did not wish to let folks see her sweat. “So what are you feeling?” he requested.
Phaedra stated she did not suppose it was going to go down like this. “What more can I do? I apologized already and the person I’m most concerned about is Porsha.” Kandi rolled her eyes at that line. “I’m sorry that it hurt Kandi as well,” Phaedra added.
Porsha stated she hadn’t heard what she wanted to listen to. “I don’t know if I will be able to move past this,” she added. “We have a connection here and the connection is pain.” She added that she did not wish to be part of that cycle anymore.
Kandi stated she ended the season feeling “vindicated” but in addition “disappointed.” Sheree Whitfield stated she felt “empowered.” Cynthia Bailey was nonetheless overtly shocked by every little thing that had simply transpired, and Kenya smiled when Andy famous that it was the smoothest reunion but … for her.
