The Most Over-The-Top Moments From The 'RHOATL' Season 13 Finale

"She is an animal and she needs to be tamed."

Culture & Entertainment

You can always count on the Real Housewives of Atlanta to give us the drama we've been craving, especially while social-distancing during this pandemic. The season 13 finale (April 18) had no shortage of shenanigans. The episode centered around a holiday party thrown by Cynthia Bailey which she coined Friendsmas but by the end re-coined to Friendsmess. Before the festivities even began, we got a look into the state of Kenya Moore's relationship with Marc Daly during a therapy session and Drew Sidora's current situation with the biological father of her nine-year-old son.

If you didn't get a chance to watch the finale, we've got you covered. Here are the soundbites from the ladies (and their co-stars) that made us laugh, gasp and say, "Oh my gosh!"

When Kenya Used Baby Brooklyn’s Phone to Call Her Estranged Husband Because He Blocked Her 

"Who blocks the mother of their child's phone calls?" Kenya Moore asked her therapist after explaining how her estranged husband Marc Daly had recently spent the night for their two-year-old's birthday party. According to Kenya, Marc expressed during his visit that he wanted to keep their family together and work on things. So when Kenya tried to contact Marc and realized that her number was B-L-O-C-K-E-D, she ran upstairs to fetch her Brooklyn's cell phone. But while Kenya was shocked that she was getting curved by her Brooklyn's daddy, viewers were shocked that the toddler had her very own cell phone.

When Cynthia Announced the White Elephant Budget Was $1,000

"I would like to warmly invite each of you to my home for a small, intimate event—Friendsmas. Bring one Secret Santa and the amount of the gift should not exceed more than $100," was Cynthia's big announcement towards the top of the episode that spiraled into the BIG drama that exploded at the party itself. She then up the ante to get the ladies excited for the festivities by raising the gift budget to a whopping $1,000. If you're anything like us and saving your coins, you might have let out a little bit of a gasp at that budget. The gifts included Tiffany's jewelry, a Gucci bag, the latest iPhone, and a gag gift that came at a cost. More on that later...

When the Llamas That Cynthia Bailey Ordered Showed Up

"At least my llama friends have shown up," Cynthia shouted when actual llamas showed up at her house for Friendsmas. Frustrated many of the ladies were canceling last minute or showing up super late, the hostess with the mostest ordered two llamas accompanied by "elves" to take photos with her castmates and bring some necessary holiday cheer. The moment made us question what we're even doing wearing ugly Christmas sweaters when the RHOATL are celebrating the season with actual llamas?

When LaToya Ali Threw a Wig at Drew Sidora

"You will not put hands on me and throw things at me. She is an animal and she needs to be tamed," Drew yelled across the room after LaToya threw an alleged $1,000 wig at her co-star. We'll back up a second here to explain. While the other ladies used a stack to buy lavish items, Drew's was a gag gift that ultimately ended up with Kenya as the "lucky" owner. Unsurprisingly, Kenya didn't care to take her wig home, giving LaToya the opportunity to hurl the bundles at Drew for once again accusing her of having a relationship with Prophet Anthony Lott. The argument is an old one, but this time it ended in a brawl where producers had to jump in. Afterward, Cynthia kicked everyone out, but like the good host she is, carolers were waiting outside to send them off.

When Kenya and LaToya Fled Friendsmas with Stolen Champagne Bottles

"I'm leaving with the Chanel, the Gucci, and the bottles," were Kenya's last words at Friendsmess. Oh, and just because Kenya didn't take her wig, doesn't mean she left empty-handed. She and LaToya raided the presents stash on their way out and Kenya grabbed half the bottles of champagne in place of her gag gift. It's safe to say Kenya left a winner!
