The Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap: Is Dennis McKinley Cheating on Porsha Williams?
Porsha Williams has a new boyfriend on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and it appears that he’s attempting to deceive her.
Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta featured a string of bombshells about Dennis, and it was all thanks to Kandi Burruss and her curious mind.
Kandi met up with her friends, Carmon and Jami, and wasted no time in talking about Dennis. To the surprise of nobody, it emerged that Dennis was allegedly dating a woman to two-and-a-half or three years while when he first got together with Porsha.
“She was talking to us about her new boyfriend, child,” Kandi said to Carmon the moment Dennis came up. “I mean, obviously, we know people that he kicked it with before. He went and bought her a little Rolex, girl!”
“Oh, he likes Rolexes, huh?” Carmon responded, talking about the watch Dennis allegedly bought for another girl.
“Yeah, I know him,” Jami said, clearly wanting to throw her two cents into the ring.
“My friend dated him. When we were in Africa, she found out ’cause her friend texted her and said that he’s with Porsha now, and so it was a big situation. She was crying!”
“You mean, she didn’t know he was dating somebody?” said a stunned Kandi, who went on to take issue with the length of time he was with the other woman.
“That can’t be right because I know a couple girls that he was dating during that time,” she admitted, adding:
“He falls pretty quickly — and he tattoos people’s names on him. I think he got her face and her name.”
That’s when things got extra awkward: Jami claimed that Dennis had a picture of the woman’s name. The woman started to laugh about what would happen if Dennis got Porsha’s name on his body.
In another part of town, Porsha was none the wiser, and telling her mother all about her relationship.
“We’re down in Miami, we have this beautiful dinner, he gives me my Rolex watch,” Porsha told her mom while grinning from ear-to-ear.
That’s when disaster struck, and Porsha showed her mother a photo of Dennis’ thigh, and it had a tattoo of her name.
“I didn’t tell you the other part!” Porsha continued.
“He’s gonna put my face on his back! This is for real, like, he ain’t going nowhere.”
“He said, ‘You’re the first person that has brought this type of happiness and joy in my life,'” Porsha said, clearly happy with herself. “It’s like a freaking dream! He said, ‘If I can’t make dinner, I order freshly prepared meals from a meal-prep company.'”
What a crazy way all of that played out, right?
I mean, I’m no relationship expert, but whatever Dennis is doing, it’s not healthy and he will likely get his comeuppance in the coming weeks.
Elsewhere, Gregg Leakes decided against getting chemotherapy after being diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer, and NeNe had a lot to say about it.
“Chemo is not something that Gregg is thinking about doing at the moment,” she said in a confessional.
“Obviously we hear all the report of people doing chemo and being very sick. So he feels like if there’s any other options that can take, I’d rather take those options and let chemo sit on the back burner for now.”
However, Gregg’s doctor had other ideas.
“There other areas of cancer that may still be in the body that we just don’t know about. Microscopic cancer cells floating around somewhere in the body that, if we don’t do anything for those, will grow back and show back up as cancer,” he told Gregg.
“I would use chemotherapy at this point to try to reduce that risk of the cancer coming back. What we do know is that chemotherapy can reduce that risk of the cancer coming back by about half.”
Gregg quizzed the doctor about any other potential treatment plans.
“We’re certainly supportive of patients who want to think about how to integrated that,” the doctor said of other ways.
“Unfortunately, there’s nothing that we have that I can recommend in lieu of the chemotherapy that we know could help reduce that risk.”
“I don’t want to miss out of the big picture, which is this is something we can fight,” Dr. Kopetz continued.
But Gregg was defiant and stuck to what he believed in.
“If the cancer was more active, I would entertain chemo a lot quicker,” Gregg later told Cynthia Bailey.
“I’m deciding to really take my life and use it as a mouthpiece for other people,” he said.
“I just want to use my life in a way to help someone. So I can say I’m Gregg Leakes, and I have cancer, but I will be a survivor.”
NeNe was on the same page as her husband.
“I’m very much on the same page as Gregg,” she said.
“I’m not sure I would do chemo. We’ve watched chemo destroy people, so it’s not something that he is even interested in.”
“Gregg is definitely on a rollercoaster. His emotions are all over the place. He cries, he’s short patience, he’s frustrated,” she added.
“I feel like because he is weak at this moment, he needs someone who is going to be strong, so I feel like I have to be his rock as he has been my rock for so many years.”
Toni Braxton recommended some holistic options, but it didn’t quite help matters. One of the therapists told Gregg he needed to eat a snake.
