Andy Cohen welcomes Cynthia Bailey and Bevy Smith to the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse.
Bartender: It’s Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin!
Drinking Game Alert: NeNe
Bevy and Cynthia have been real friends for over 20 years.
Andy asks the ladies what their read on NeNe saying Apollo was lying about lying about Kenya?
Bevy says it's complicated. Cynthia says she doesn't think it makes any sense. She says he apologized, it is what it is and let's just let it go.
Andy asks Cynthia about what she meant on last weeks #RHOA episode about Porsha flip-flopping with an older man for bags and cars?
Cynthia said she should've said "allegedly."
At the end of the day Porsha has been taking digs at her and she must throw some digs back.
1) Andy plays a clip of NeNe violating the friendship contract between her and Cynthia.
Andy asks Cynthia if NeNe was correct, was there an old Cynthia that she was trying to portray?
Cynthia gets to the point Real By Read, it's obvious Cynthia lives for doing the robot and she lives for good read, so NeNe was correct about that.
This brings us to the Poll Question:
Andy asks Brandon Boykin who his vote is for. Brandon is all about sticking up for yourself so he's 100% for Cynthia. Brandon actually watches #RHOA and says that's all Cynthia's trying to do is stick up for herself.
2) Andy plays a Intense sneak peek of next weeks #RHOA!
3) Andy plays with Bevy a little Reading game called Bevy Smith Goes on a Riff! (You can watch the game here)
Denise from Connecticut called to ask Cynthia what caused her to be more aggressive the season?
Cynthia says she's tired. It's been almost 5 years now, taking the high road doesn't really get you that far with this group of girls. She tried a different approach this season. Some people like it and some people, not so much. What matters is Cynthia likes it.
Cynthia didn't let Porsha get a word in edgewise during their sit down because it started off on the wrong tone when Porsha was over an hour late. Cynthia was just frustrated with the whole situation and knew she could've handled it better, but she felt under the circumstances Porsha didn't deserve a right to talk because she was too late.
Andy asked Cynthia if she misses NeNe?
Cynthia definitely misses the good times she had with NeNe.
Andy asked Bevy about her Ferguson Standing.
Bevy has partaken in Blackout Black Friday. If folks were displeased with the decision instead of rioting or being violent they should take a non violent action with their purses by not purchasing anything on this day. The sales in St. Louis were down by 11% & Bevy attributes it to the Blackout.
GIF of the Night:
Andy asked Brandon Boykin what he thought about Kandi buying the house for Mama Joyce?
Brandon thought that it was okay and that her heart was in the right place. However she probably should've consulted with Todd first. If he was the guy he would want to know.
Bevy's Housewife tagline would be "My breasts might be big, but my heart is even larger!"
Bobbi from St. Louis Missouri asked Bevy to do a Read on the Housewives of Atlanta's styles?
Bevy says labels, labels, labels! Label whores! Cynthia Bailey wears it the best because she has an unfair advantage because she was a model.
Crystal from Schenectady call to ask Cynthia does she think she can truly trust Kenya?
Cynthia has really only had one issue with Kenya, after they got past that they were always good. They moved on.
Andy asked Bevy for a viewer where can large breasted woman comfortably shop for clothing?
Bevy says she doesn't know about the clothing because she wears a lot of designer clothing. She's wearing a designer dress tonight. What Bevy does say is it's all about the foundation. (Meaning a good Bra)
A viewer said Cynthia looks like she definitely had some work done. Cynthia has only had a little bit of Botox right between the eyebrows. That's the only thing she's ever had done. Cynthia says when she needs to she will get work done. Cynthia looks fabulous for a woman in her 40's.
Andy plays with the ladies #HolidayPro or Oh-No! (You can watch the game here)
Plug Alert: For playing along the ladies win a pair of reading glasses and Andy Cohen's new book The Andy Cohen Diaries, available on ShopByBravo.com
Mazel of the Day: Goes to Lil Wayne's daughter who got a Ferrari and a BMW for her sweet 16.
Jackhole of the Day: Goes to Stephen Hayes a murder on death row who put up a stink because the death row meals did not conform to his kosher diet.
Andy asked Brandon Boykin if his wife and him watch WWHL before they go to bed and Brandon confirmed they do every night, five nights a week.
Brandon has played for the Eagles for three years now.
Drinking Game: Nene was said 15 times! Andy reminds viewers "If you were drinking no driving ever!"
Lisa from Washington ask Cynthia if she felt she would ever be able to forgive NeNe?
Cynthia said absolutely, she's a very forgiving person. At this point she just wants a respectful cordial relationship with NeNe. Cynthia is open to the friendship being rekindled, but the dynamics must change. They need to be respectful on both sides.
Bevy & Andy both want NeNe & Cynthia to rekindle their friendship.
Cynthia says it's not fun not being friends with NeNe. Bevy says that if Kim & NeNe can make up there's hope for Cynthia and NeNe. Cynthia agrees. Andy thinks the three-year break Kim & NeNe had is what brought their relationship back together. They just need a break from all the drama. (Is that a read? Does Andy want NeNe or Cynthia to take a 3 year break from #RHOA so they can rekindle their once true friendship?)
A caller asked where Bevy purchases her bras from?
Bevy gets her bras for free from Panache.
Ashley from Alabama asked Cynthia how she feels about Kandi, since she kind of goes back-and-forth between both groups of girls?
Cynthia is grateful for Kandi. She is the nice girl this season and says it's a hard position for her to be in.
Andy asks Bevy what she's buying on Cyber Monday? Bevy is boycotting Cyber Monday. Like she did for Blackout Black Friday.
A caller from Chicago asked Bevy where her inspiration comes from? Alexander McQueen and DVF make it happen for her. No matter what size you are it's important to know your body type, so you don't have to spend money on clothes that don't properly fit you.
Virginia from Delaware called to ask Cynthia if she feels that she could've handled her meeting differently with Porsha?
Yes, but she was frustrated because she was over an hour late.
Deborah from South Carolina asked Cynthia if she thinks Phaedra owes Kenya an apology for flirting with Apollo?
Cynthia said yes Kenya flirted, but Apollo was the biggest offender.
Cynthia gave Andy Peter's new Jamaican line of coffee called Peter's Brew.
And with that Andy bids us a good night.
