Viewers may have witnessed a first on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta: A girls' trip with little drama.
The wives had a lot of baggage to deal with (both the personal and travel varieties) during their jaunt to the Philippines, but they did leave something behind: NeNe Leakes.
Leakes stayed back to meet with the creative director of Cinderella, who gave her a taste of her own shade when her reading with him was, well, not nearly as magical as a glass slipper.
"I want to bring it," Leakes said, suggesting she wanted to try out "two accents," an idea that did not float well.
"You better bring it," he said. "Your name is on the marquee."

Viewers got an inside look at Phaedra Parks's painful decision to divorce Apollo Nida on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta.
"It was madness all the time. Every day," a teary Parks confessed to Sarah Jakes, daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes. "He was always getting into fights. It was nonstop."
Parks said she tried to support Nida – even when he was sentenced to eight years in prison for fraud – but the never-ending drama was too much.

Perhaps NeNe Leakes should have opted for retail therapy instead of group therapy with The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday, as she stormed out of a counseling session she organized when the wives focused on all their bad blood with her.

Although Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have only been married a few months, the newlyweds acknowledged on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta that not only was the honeymoon over, but it never really began.
"We didn't even have a honeymoon," Burruss told a counselor, whom the couple sought out in order to work through tensions in their new marriage.
Tucker acknowledged that the pressure to sign a prenup – which was a major theme of last season, when Burruss's mother, Mama Joyce, called Tucker an opportunist for refusing to sign one – had affected their marriage.

Usually, chocolate is a good thing, but on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta it wasn't so sweet for Phaedra Parks.
"The 'whore-pocracy' of this group is disgusting," Cynthia Bailey said, after telling Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan at a wine-tasting about the text messages that Parks's husband, Apollo Nida, said he had discovered on his wife's cell that he believed showed she was having an affair with a man named Chocolate. "Over the past few years, Phaedra has had an issue with telling the truth."

On a frightening The Real Housewives of Atlanta Sunday, an angry Apollo Nida showed up at Phaedra Parks's home instead of reporting to the big house to begin serving an eight-year prison sentence for fraud.
"Apollo threatened to do all kinds of horrific things, and I was scared for our safety," said Parks, who was having all of the locks on her house re-keyed when Nida showed up and angrily began flying through the house. "I've got to make sure I'm safe."
"Why would you lock me out of my own house," Nida yelled after pulling into the driveway, where the garage door code was being changed. "Who would do some lowdown sh-- like this?"
"You're supposed to be reporting to prison today," replied a calm Parks. "A mind is a terrible thing to waste ... and his is clearly gone."
"Are you gonna call the police on me?" asked Nida. "Don't play me right now."
Instead of calling the police, Parks called Nida's friend, Bun, who came over to try to calm him.
"It's like he's got a death wish," Parks said of her estranged husband, who finally took off in his car, before returning yet again.
"Stop playing with me!" he yelled.
"I'm not sure what he's capable of at this moment," said a still calm Parks, "because he has nothing to lose."
Nida then stormed through the house once more before rushing into the garage with a power drill he kept turning on and off.
"Go away from me with this!" yelled Parks.
"Listen to me for one second," Nida whispered into her ear threateningly, the drill in his hand. "Do not call the police."
"I might not be here when you get back," Parks said to Nida when he finally walked away.
"You always leave me," he said.
"I'm praying for you," she replied.
"You should. You took everything from me. You got all these people brainwashed."
Nida was referring to his earlier conversation with Cynthia Bailey's husband, Peter Thomas, in which he told him he had discovered texts on Parks's phone that showed she was having an affair with an African man named "Chocolate."

While the Grammys were alive with the sound of music on Sunday, The Real Housewives of Atlanta" were alive with shouting between Claudia Jordan and Porsha Williams.
"After being low down and dirty in Puerto Rico, let's just hope she has good enough sense not to show up to my party," Williams said of Jordan in advance of a party welcoming Williams to Dish Nation.
But Jordan – who claimed Williams got her Rolls (and other goodies) from an African married man after Williams laughed when NeNe Leakes called her a whore on the trip – showed up, which led to the war of words when Jordan tried to approach her.

"Burn, baby, burn," Bailey cheered, clapping. "It's over."

"NeNe made it crystal clear she didn't want to be friends," Bailey said, prompting her sister, Malorie, to find the contract, which had been signed and filed away.

There were no books on Sunday's The Real Housewives of Atlanta", but there was plenty of "reading" going on.
"What you're witnessing right now is NeNe Leakes getting read," said her former BFF Cynthia Bailey about the ongoing battle between Leakes and Claudia Jordan in Puerto Rico.
It was Team Leakes vs. Team Jordan, after the wives were invited by Demetria McKinney to hear her perform.
"I usually try and keep it classy and above board, but I draw a line when I'm called a whore," said Jordan, who took on Leakes after she continued to give her the cold shoulder and Phaedra Parks continued to diss McKinney.

While the stars were celebrating the Golden Globes in Los Angeles on Sunday, the The Real Housewives of Atlanta were in Puerto Rico throwing more shade than the palm trees.
"Is that shade, Phaedra?" asked Demetria McKinney, who invited all the women to Puerto Rico to watch her perform. "There have been a couple of moments I have felt … I want to make sure that if it is shade, I address it."
McKinney was addressing Parks's constant disses about her age to become a pop star, her relationship, her fashion sense and even if she had done crack.
