I’m back! I didn’t mean to take a mini hiatus – I was supposed to be on vacation, which turned out disastrous and ended up being a staycation, so life has been a little crazy. Luckily, I’m all caught up on RHOC, and instead of giving my normal play by play, I’d much rather just give my thoughts. We haven’t even hit Episode 5 yet and this season is already crazy. I’m loving it.
1.) VICKI IS A BAD FRIEND.
I mean, I’m sure by now we all know that that’s a given. But I had hope when her apology to Eddie seemed so sincere! It literally baffles me that she sees nothing wrong with what she did to Kelly. And the fact that after she leaves Kelly’s house, she calls Michael to tell him what happened! It’s so messed up.
2.) JOLIE IS WISE BEYOND HER YEARS.
While I don’t necessarily agree with Kelly sharing everything with her 12 year old daughter, Jolie, I will say she is very smart for her age. She knows a lot about friendships and forgiveness for being so young, more so than I did at her age. (And, if I’m being honest, even now, at almost age 30.) She pretty much tells Kelly that Vicki isn’t a good friend, and that she can forgive her but it doesn’t mean that thing need to go back to exactly how they were. She’s absolutely right.
3.) IF YOU WANT TO RENEW A BROKEN FRIENDSHIP, JUST BOOK A TRIP TO MEXICO.
These bitches are insane. But I seriously loved every moment of the Mexico trip. They are wasted from the very start and they never really stop. Even when Tamra breaks her foot. (Okay, I did feel bad for Tamra – but who jumps into a jacuzzi!?) I love when these Tres Amigas get along. They’re fun and entertaining to watch. “Cheers to our new normal.” Yassss!
4.) KELLY FORGIVES VICKI….SORT OF…..
Vicki and Kelly meet at a coffee shop, and Kelly explains to Vicki that she is upset because Vicki didn’t tell her that she was “setting up” or going on double dates with Michael. Vicki apologizes, and we see Kelly accept that apology. Both weren’t exactly honest, though. Vicki says in a confessional that she didn’t do anything wrong, and Kelly brings up the situation at a girls dinner later in the episode. Clearly, neither is over this. For the record, I’m Team Kelly.
5.) GIRL CODE IS EVERYTHING.
Just ask Gina! I’m so glad Kelly brought up this again. You’d think Vicki would realize she’s wrong, which she clearly still doesn’t, but at least it was put out there. Don’t break Girl Code, Vicki, and then no one will have to come for you. 🤷🏼♀️
6.) TAMRA WILL FOREVER STIR THE POT.
I mean, some things never change. Tamra couldn’t wait to tell Gina that Vicki messaged her basically telling her that she hated Gina. Typical Tamra. She loves to stir the pot and then sit back and watch how it all goes down.
7.) SHANNON BEADOR IS MY SPIRIT ANIMAL
I just genuinely love Shannon Beador. I feel her on so many levels. I totally understand the weight fluctuation struggle, and I love what she’s doing with the healthy meal kits, so I’m curious to see if QVC took that on. She’s just real and honest, a very genuine person. I love her.
8.) I DON’T SEE VICKI & GINA BECOMING FRIENDS – EVER.
I will say that I totally respect Gina for reaching out to Vicki to make things right after that awkward AF dinner party. However, I agree with Gina 100%. She’s allowed to have an opinion, and she didn’t think what Vicki did was okay. Vicki can’t own anything and it’s so annoying. They go for a walk on the beach, and they squash whatever issue they had, but it’s clear that these two will never see eye to eye. Vicki can not handle a newbie coming in and telling her she’s wrong. She doesn’t believe she’s actually in the wrong anyway. So there’s no reasoning with her.
Next week looks interesting……
