In the latest instalment of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," the cast will gather at Phaedra Parks' Christmas bash. Suffice to say that Season 8 Episode 17 titled "Who's Been Naughty Who's Been Nice" will depict several verbal arguments and trust issues.

In last week's episode, Phaedra took her kids to visit her husband, Apollo Nida, in prison. Her kids grew weary after a while and so did the reality star. Reason? Apollo said that he would resist the divorce. As Phaedra recounted this incident to her mother, she was overcome with grief.

[Spoiler Alert]

The upcoming episode will capture her in a lighter spirit as she throws a Christmas party at her home. Cast members, Porcha Williams, NeNe Leaks, Tammy McCall Browning, Shereé Whitfield, Kenya Moore and Kandi Burrus will attend the soirée.

The promo for Episode 17 reveals that Kandi can't trust Phaedra anymore. Her doubt in her co-star grows after law enforcement officials show up at her and Todd Tucker's residence and ask them to surrender Apollo's possessions: a motorcycle and a Yamaha Raptor 700R. This episode rattles a very pregnant Kandi, who says in the promo: "Did Phaedra call them?"

Meanwhile, Porcha speaks to Apollo's wife about the cops at Kandi's house. When Phaedra receives the news, she is amused but not surprised. She neither denies or accepts that she sent the police over to the co-star's place. Instead Phaedra changes the topic and says, "I wonder what she'd think if I have Todd's stuff over here. I wonder what she would think about that?" 

Will this lack of trust lead to a verbal altercation between the two? Did Porcha just instigate Phaedra against Kandi? Let us know in the comment section.

Season 8 Episode 17's synopsis released via TV Guide reads:

Phaedra looks to the future after seeing Apollo in prison by hosting a holiday bash in the Season 8 finale. Also: Porsha tries to preserve her fertility; Kenya's family grows; and the group comes together for a Christmas party and a final showdown.
