Episode 17 of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” season 5 is about the ladies leaving Los Angeles behind and heading to Las Vegas. The women are excited to have an all-girls weekend and naturally there will be the inevitable drama that is in almost every “Real Housewives” episode.
Porsha is worried when the women want to visit a strip club. She knows Kordell wouldn’t want her participating in an outing like that. All season viewers have seen enough of their relationship to know that Porsha cares a lot about what her husband thinks and it’s easy to see how she can sometimes feel like she can’t be her own person. When the women want her to join them, they aren’t happy she won’t go because they think she’s allowing herself to be controlled by her husband. They try breaking Porsha free from being a “housewife” and try inspiring more independence in her. Will it work and will she end up going to the strip club? She may not because she appears to back out as the ladies get out of the limo and head to the venue. Porsha expresses the fact that she values her marriage and how her husband feels. It also makes her sad to see women sell their bodies for money.
Kenya has watched her tongue around Phaedra as much as she can possibly stand. By the end of this episode she finally confronts her and tells her what’s been bottled up inside. Kenya is hurt by the accusations Phaedra made on her character involving alcohol and being crazy.
