RHOD: PARTY FOULS

I can’t believe the finale is here ya’ll!! What an epic ending to an epic season. I love these ladies and I’m truly going to miss seeing them on my TV every week.

We start off at Steph’s; she’s working with her assistant to get everything ready for Travis’s Frat Party, which she’s throwing for him in honor of him going to Harvard. Brandi arrives, and I really love watching the two of them together. They’re both so silly and have a lot of fun together, and when you’re constantly being bombarded with drama it’s nice to just see the normal! The girls are talking about Travis, and I love when Brandi says, “We can’t ever let him think he’s smarter than us.” LMAO. Trey is testing the foam pit outside, and we quickly learn that it works. “Let’s go jump in it!” Steph is so cute LOL. Brandi and Steph are a lot of fun.

LeeAnne & Rich are over at The Cathedral of Hope, where are they are planning on having their wedding. LeeAnne explains to us that it is a LGBTQ Church, and there is no judgement here. She says she’s always felt different, and here, she feels like she fits in. They meet with the priest (sorry if he’s not a priest….pastor?) and they chat for a bit. I really like how LeeAnne describes her relationship with Rich, I think it’s very sweet. She feels like they complete each other – when she is too much, he pulls her back in, and when he is distant she pulls him out. They compliment each other. Those aren’t her exact words, so don’t quote me. But it reminded me of the speech Cam says from Modern Family about himself & Mitchell’s relationship (The Dreamer & The Realist) and I love that. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about go google it, it’s so sweet.) LeeAnne & Rich pick a date – April 27, 2019! Bravo spin-off anyone!?

Watching Mama Dee turn over the company to D’Andra, with all of their friends, family and coworkers present, was truly something else. Mama Dee held an event in honor of it at Jalisco, and to say I’m happy for D’Andra is an understatement. She is now 100% owner of Ultimate Living and Hard Night Good Morning. Mama Dee telling her daughter that it was her time to shine just made my heart happy.

Watching D’Andra and Mama Dee share such a heartfelt moment is so nice to see. D’Andra expresses how she wishes the whole family was here – her grandmother and her father. She becomes emotional and tells her mom that she hopes she can be proud of her one day. Hearing Mama Dee respond by saying, “I’m proud of you today.”, was everything. Mama Dee has become more and more maternal as the weeks have gone by. She tells D’Andra that if she needs anything she just has to call her. I feel like you can see the joy in D’Andra’s face at her mother’s words – her relief is so palpable, and she’s so grateful. To watch them come full circle and be so open and loving to each other was wonderful. It made me emotional, honestly! My mom is my best friend. We have always been close, and the times when we disagree or are upset with one another truly puts me on edge. It’s a horrible feeling. I’m so happy that they are in a good place. ❤️

Kameron & LeeAnne meet up, and they’re shopping for the Frat Party. I’m pretty sure they pick out a funnel for a keg, but I think Kam called it a bong. LMAO, if I misheard that please let me know! It made me LOL. LeeAnne sees a cup that says No Bad Days and says that she needs it because she’s had nothing but bad days lately.

The girls sit down, and LeeAnne tells Kameron that she is already anticipating that it’s going to be an “Attack LeeAnne” Party. LeeAnne is clearly annoyed/upset that none of the other girls think that Brandi stole her phone. “Girl, I can see both sides.” – Sure Kam, whatever you say. That’s not what you told Cary. LeeAnne says she hasn’t talked to any of the girls and is worried about what Stephanie will think. She also mentions how she hasn’t spoken to D’Andra since her Fashion Show. Umm, maybe D’Andra hasn’t called you since the show because you weren’t very nice to her? Just a thought. LeeAnne is really hating on Brandi, and calling her stupid. Kameron is nodding in agreement like a puppet. LeeAnne expresses that “Calm LeeAnne” wants to stay home and bang the Tibetan bowl, and “Bitch LeeAnne” wants to come back to kick all of ya’lls asses. LeeAnne is already going into this with a negative mindset. I personally think she knows what she did was wrong (lying about cloning the phone), but she doesn’t care and doesn’t want to talk about it. Kam and LeeAnne agree that they will go to the party together if their husbands can’t make it, because Court might have another event that day and Rich may be out of town.

It’s the day of the party. How cute is Brandi in her cheerleading uniform!? From high school! Love it. You’re absolutely killing it girl. Everything looks great – love the “Travis Fucking Hollman” sign – is it made out of Solo Cups? We have beer pong, a foam pit, a keg – I’m transported back ten years during this episode and I love it. (Those were the days.)

The amount of Jell-O shots in Steph’s fridge is Party Goals. (And honestly, this whole scene is making me long for Summer! I want to throw a frat party and get drunk off of Jell-O shots!). Anyway, Brandi and Steph talk about PhoneGate, and Brandi is just done with LeeAnne. Brandi tells Steph that she got a voicemail a few days prior to the party from Kameron, telling Brandi that her phone wasn’t cloned and it was all a joke.

This scene with Kameron is annoying to me – she’s smirking while she leaves the message, and I do find it humorous that she’s totally fine with LeeAnne playing jokes on other people (that’s not actually a joke), but she’s offended by a dildo and a k-cup. I mean 🤷🏼‍♀️ Steph wants Brandi to talk to Kam about the voicemail and get to the bottom of it. Both girls agree that Kameron has blind loyalty to LeeAnne, and she will never disagree with her. I really like when Steph says that just because you always agree with someone doesn’t make you a good friend, it makes you a good doormat. She also points out that she believes Kameron feels like LeeAnne is her safety net.

“I was always told not to go to Foam Parties because they’re really dirty and you can get diseases.” Ooookay Kameron. Despite Kam clearly annoying me, I will say, she pulled off a great Cher Horowitz. I will always give credit where credit is due – and this Clueless look is fabulous. I do think this scene is a little weird. LeeAnne comes over, and Kam tells her she isn’t ready and needs to wash her hair. (I agree with LeeAnne, why would you wash your hair to go to a foam party? Dry shampoo girl!) Kam insists she has to wash it, but she shows LeeAnne her Cher outfit first. LeeAnne loves it and wants to be “Twins”, so while Kam is washing her hair LeeAnne goes to the vintage store that Kameron bought the outfit from so they can match. When I saw the previews, I thought they chose beforehand to match. I’m not even sure why this is so weird to me, but it’s just not sitting well.

The girls are on their way to the party. D’Andra is with Jeremy, and they chat with Mama Dee on the phone for a little while. I really love Jeremy & D’Andra’s relationship – he’s so supportive, it’s very sweet.

Kameron and LeeAnne are coming together, and their conversations never seem to be about anything other than Brandi. I’m really over it, honestly. “We’re like the mean girls entering the party.” You said it, Kam. Kam goes on to say that they’re just going to be positive and they won’t let anyone say anything mean about them. LeeAnne immediately says, “I think I’m gonna lose my cool.” At this point I’m unsure why LeeAnne is even bothering to go to the party. She’s anticipating some kind of argument, so why bother? We learn in Kam’s confessional that she thinks D’Andra and Brandi have gotten away with way more than LeeAnne ever has behavior wise. Not only do I disagree with this statement, but I don’t even know what the fuck Kameron is talking about. What has Brandi or D’Andra done? Then, Kameron turns to LeeAnne and says, “Brandi never stops talking about being a cheerleader. I mean I love her but I think there’s more to her.” (One of them mentioned that Brandi was dressed as a cheerleader.). Keep stirring that pot, Kam. Get your friend all riled up right before you enter the party.

The party is in full swing. I’m literally LOLing at Steph when she sees Cary – “She bought Converse sneakers and thinks it’s a costume.” LMAO. Also really love seeing Callie-Roo running around, so random but so fitting! D’Andra shares her good news with Brandi, Steph & Cary and they’re all very happy for her, and share a nice moment. LeeAnne and Kameron have finally arrived, and I will say, I do think D’Andra is on point when she said that LeeAnne is up Kam’s ass.

Steph confronts LeeAnne immediately about PhoneGate/CloneGate, whatever the hell we are calling it (and still talking about!). LeeAnne tried to explain herself, but Steph clearly isn’t buying what LeeAnne is selling. Her face says it all. LeeAnne says she wanted Brandi to feel the torture she felt when she thought her phone was missing, and admits that what she did was “tit for tat.”

Meanwhile, Brandi is confronting Kameron about her voicemail. “Am I in trouble? Is my hair flat?” Cary’s eye roll at this question is the best. Kameron tells Brandi she doesn’t think that she took LeeAnne’s phone, but can understand why LeeAnne thinks that. Brandi is getting more and more pissed off, and tells Kameron to use her brain. Kameron isn’t happy after being told that, and she tells Brandi that when LeeAnne defends herself she takes it to the next level.

Steph and LeeAnne are still trying to clear things up, and LeeAnne admits to Steph that she never cloned Brandi’s phone, that it was a joke. Steph says, “No, it was a lie.” Which LeeAnne disagrees with. I was so proud of Steph here for holding her ground and not backing down from how she felt.

D’Andra joins Brandi and Kamerons convo, and Brandi is just telling Kameron that the reason she is done with LeeAnne is because she always takes it to the next level. I’m not sure what D says/does, but Kam looks over at her and says, “I’m getting the impression D’Andra that you’re done with her too?” D’Andra’s answer was classy and perfect. “I’m done with the lying. I’ve had it up to here.”

Stephanie isn’t getting through to LeeAnne like she had hoped she would, so she really thinks that she should talk with Brandi. (Steph has the best intentions, but I see “Bad Idea” written all over this.)

They start talking, and Brandi tells LeeAnne she never stole her phone. LeeAnne doesn’t believe her. Cary chimes in and says that they both don’t trust each other. Brandi says that she doesn’t lie, and LeeAnne says she doesn’t lie either. This pisses Brandi off, because LeeAnne did lie about cloning the phone. This, for some reason, prompts LeeAnne to bring up Brandi calling her “The Wicked Witch of the West.”, to which Brandi simply replies, “I never said West.” LeeAnne says she still called her a witch/bitch something, and that’s when Brandi becomes even more annoyed. “LeeAnne, you called me an alcoholic.”

LeeAnne says she never called her an alcoholic. (This is just ridiculous, we all heard and saw it.) Cary finally steps in and is like, “I’m pretty sure you called her an alcoholic, and if you didn’t use those words you inferred it.” LeeAnne says that’s totally different, and Cary disagrees. (As do I.)

D’Andra brings up how LeeAnne told Mama Dee that she was an alcoholic, to which LeeAnne replies with, “No I said I thought you were drinking a lot.” D’Andra tells us this is not what Mama Dee said, and LeeAnne says she will take it up with Mama Dee then.

This conversation is pushing Brandi to her breaking point. She asks LeeAnne why she thinks she can just go around saying things like that, and tells LeeAnne that she thinks that she’s better than all of them.

Brandi gets in LeeAnne’s face, and LeeAnne does put her hands on Brandi. Brandi steps back saying, “Hey, who touched who!?”

Brandi is completely bullshit at this point and tells LeeAnne, “I’ve been friends with Travis Hollman for 20 years, get the fuck out!” And this is when things turn….scary? I don’t even know what word to use.

LeeAnne completely loses her shit, and I’m sorry, she literally looked possessed when she was coming for Brandi in that moment. Steph is holding Brandi back, and Cary is trying to get LeeAnne away from her and talk her off the ledge. I feel like LeeAnne didn’t even hear Cary at one point -it was like a demon overtook her body. (I’m not being a sarcastic bitch, she seriously looked out of it.) The girl’s finally separate, and I am so annoyed that when Cary is telling LeeAnne to stop it, all she is worried about is that Cary isn’t telling Brandi to stop, too. “What about her!?” Stop worrying about everyone else and worry about yourself and your actions.

LeeAnne sits at a table by herself, talking to herself about how ridiculous Brandi is, crying to make herself seem like the victim. Cary and LeeAnne join her, and I’m becoming frustrated with Cary. She thinks Brandi provoked LeeAnne, and obviously Kameron agrees. LeeAnne is on the ground at one point crying that she’s alone, and am I seeing things or did Cary dump her drink out on her? Wtf is going on right now?

Steph is taking to D’Andra and Brandi, and she tells them she feels like she should go over to the table with the other girls, in support of Brandi. I didn’t understand this scene – maybe I missed something. Brandi tells us in her confessional that Steph feels caught in the middle because it’s her party, but Brandi doesn’t think she should feel that way because she’s her best friend. I didn’t get the vibe that Steph felt in the middle, she clearly had Brandi’s back during the entire altercation.

Steph does go over, and LeeAnne apologizes to her and tells her she will leave if she wants her to, and Steph says she absolutely does not have to leave.

Brandi and D’Andra are still talking, and D’Andra mentions LeeAnne’s “personality change” and how it was scary. I agree. We all saw it, and it really was frightening. Not even in a way like, “OMG, I’m scared of LeeAnne!” More like it’s concern for hey mental state and well being. We also learn from D’Andra that at this point in her life she doesn’t want to be around LeeAnne’s darkness, but enjoys being around Brandi and her lightheartedness and fun personality.

D’Andra and Brandi go off to do a keg stand, and Steph, Cary, LeeAnne and Kameron go in the foam pit.

I can’t believe we are the end of Season 3! Steph tells us that she feels empowered this season. She says life isn’t about loyalty, it’s about being real. She just wants to be authentic, and I think she did an amazing job of that this season. Steph has definitely come into her own and has found her own voice.

I’m not going to get into all of the little blurbs they tell us at the end about the girls and where they are now, because I know we will touch on that in the reunion next week. But I will say that seeing that Bruin is now legally a Redmond truly made my night! Yay Brandi! I am beyond happy for you and your family. That’s the most amazing news ever.

So sad to say farewell to Season 3, but I’m sure our favorite ladies will be back in Season 4, ready to go. I’ll be blogging about the reunion, so I’ll see you all next week! Oh, and if you’re a Vanderpump Rules fan, it’s back on December 3rd, and I would love for you to check out my recaps and thoughts!

Cheers to a crazy season!

RHOD: GAME OF PHONES

Before we get into this week – can I just say that I am so not ready for next week to be the finale!? We have so much left unresolved!! Ugh. 🤦🏼‍♀️

We are right back where we left off – in Copenhagen, at the most awkward dinner ever. Brandi has called everyone out, saying that she doesn’t think any of the girls trust LeeAnne. Cary chimes in, admitting that she’s currently working on her trust with LeeAnne. Brandi then goes on to say that she thinks it’s bullshit that LeeAnne talks about Brandi behind her back. For Kameron to say that LeeAnne doesn’t talk about Brandi is 1.) a lie, and for her to also say it’s an “insecurity” on Brandi’s end is 2.) complete bullshit. Brandi is pissed and tells LeeAnne that she despises her. She goes on to call out Kameron, saying that Kam tiptoes around LeeAnne, and Kam disagrees, telling the girls that she trusts LeeAnne. Seeing LeeAnne bring Steph into it was unsettling to watch. I do feel as though that was a calculated move on LeeAnne’s end. “Do you think Stephanie is lying to you when she says she’s starting to trust me?” Clearly this is going to cause a rift. Poor Steph looks so uncomfortable. And this is just setting Brandi up to flip out.

“I do feel like all of you are being a bunch of fake bitches.” Everyone is stunned at Brandi’s words, and she leaves the restaurant. Stephanie is very upset when Brandi leaves, and she tells the girls she has to go. She expresses that she feels bad, that she understands why Brandi feels hurt and she doesn’t feel right not having her back. D’Andra tells Steph that she gets it, that she feels like they’re both in the middle, and Cary agrees that they’re basically all in the middle because they are friends. Steph tells us in her confessional that she does think they are all kind of being fake bitches. Steph doesn’t think it’s okay that LeeAnne called Brandi an alcoholic, but she doesn’t want to call her out on it because she doesn’t want conflict.

LeeAnne tells Steph that she would never want to put her in the middle. Stephanie comes clean to LeeAnne and gives her credit because her delivery is a lot calmer, but she has to stop with the low blows, that it’s not okay. L’s response? “When I’m hurting I cut you off at the ankles and I want you to try and crawl away while you’re bleeding.” I think all of our faces were Cary & D’Andra’s faces at that moment. Like what?

Brandi is at another bar down the street, and she tries calling Steph, not knowing Steph left her phone at the hotel. Brandi calls D’Andra next and asks if she will meet her, and D’Andra agrees. D’Andra and Steph leave to go meet Brandi, leaving LeeAnne, Cary and Kameron still at the table. LeeAnne is pissed that D’Andra has gone with Brandi – she tells us in her confessional, “Choice made.” On one hand, I understand LeeAnne being hurt that D’Andra has left, but on the other, their friendship has been so rocky, and she’s formed a solid friendship with Brandi. I feel like if Kameron was to storm out, LeeAnne would 100% go after her. So I don’t think it’s fair for her to be mad about this.

Brandi, D’Andra and Steph are together, and Brandi tells us she felt betrayed. D’Andra expresses that she was hurt by the “fake bitches” comment because she and Brandi have come so far in their friendship, and she explains that she feels like herself and Stephanie are stuck in the middle. Steph totally understands why Brandi feels hurt. Brandi feels like everyone just kind of glossed over the alcoholic comment, which I agree with.

We are back in Dallas, and Kam is over at Cary’s house. The girls talk about the trip, and it’s so annoying to see Kam saying how “scary” D’Andra was. Eye roll. Cary asks how they are now and Kam says good, but D’Andra is on friend probation. I seriously can’t. That’s not the end of it, though. Apparently more drama went down in Copenhagen that we, the viewers, didn’t get to see. Apparently LeeAnne’s phone went missing for like two hours. Brandi apparently found it in the couch cushions of the bar they were at, and she brought it back up to her. This made LeeAnne think Brandi stole her phone. Both Cary and Kameron state that they don’t believe Brandi stole her phone.

Meanwhile, Steph and Brandi are on a walk with Bruin (he’s so cute!) and they’re also talking about the phone. I am LOLing at B – “If I was really going to do something with your phone I would’ve flushed it down the toilet.” LMAO.

Kameron tells Cary that LeeAnne told her she “cloned Brandi’s phone.” Cary doesn’t understand how that would be possible, and Kam says something about how their phones were next to each other and LeeAnne has some kind of software that could clone the data. Cary thinks this is outrageous and says that it’s “CSI on crack.” Agreed. When we switch back over to Brandi and Steph, we also learn that Steph doesn’t believe the phone is cloned. Brandi is feeling weary, which is understandable – it’s her phone, after all. Kameron is totally stirring the pot, and she tells Cary that they should just ask LeeAnne if she did it. Why do I feel like this is a setup?

Cary has a nice scene with her parents, and Kameron has a convo with Court about juggling Sparkle Dog/Girls Trips/Mom Life, and I don’t even want to go down that road. Basically Kam decides she wants a business partner because she had 80 emails when she got back from Copenhagen. Christ, I have 80 emails if I leave the office for 2 hours. Spare me.

The day of the fashion show has arrived! Steph can’t make it because it’s Travis’s birthday, but she sends flowers and a very sweet card to LeeAnne, that LeeAnne definitely appreciates. Cary and D’Andra are getting glammed up together, and they talk about “cellphone gate” as D calls it. They call Brandi and learn she wasn’t invited to L’s show, which I don’t find surprising in the least. It would be weirder to me if Brandi got an invite, honestly. Cary tells D’Andra what Kam said about the “friend probation” and D is pissed. Cary thinks she’s being dramatic, but I don’t. I think Kameron is being so condescending and treating D’Andra like she’s one of her children. It’s bullshit. You either forgive someone or you don’t.

Over at Brandi’s, she’s FaceTiming with her Mom and she fills her in on the cell phone clone thing. Brandi’s mom thinks LeeAnne is “full of shit” and I’m dying at Brinkley – “she always is.” 😂

After the show, the girls are all talking, and Kam is stirring the pot so bad. LeeAnne comes over to the group, and her and D’Andra start chatting, and she’s immediately such a bitch to her. It’s clear that she’s holding a grudge from Copenhagen – but it’s like, enough already. Why bother holding a grudge? Let it go, or let the friendship go. This is all becoming a little bit ridiculous. To me, D’Andra is really making an effort here, and LeeAnne is shutting her down. It’s frustrating. The girls bring up the cloning of the phone, and the truth comes out. “I didn’t clone her phone, that was bullshit.”

D’Andra and Cary agree that it wasn’t nice of LeeAnne to pretend that she did clone Brandi’s phone, and LeeAnne says, “Don’t steal my fucking phone!” Kameron starts to agree with her, and I’m loving Cary putting her right in her place. “You agreed with me yesterday that you don’t think Brandi stole her phone.” Kam tries to flip flop, saying she goes both ways, but that’s the beauty of capturing it on film – we all heard you say it. LeeAnne is also saying that Brandi deserved it, and it made her happy that she was worried. I’m sorry – how old are we? This is how I used to act in middle school, to be honest. This is so damn petty. Also, LeeAnne keeps harping on the fact that everyone always thinks she’s wrong and that no one seems to call out Brandi’s behavior, and I think it’s time for LeeAnne to take responsibility for her actions. You assumed Brandi stole your phone – you have no proof of that. You went out of your way to make Brandi think you had all of her personal information – you even told D’Andra that you had Rich help you clone it. You did that with the intent to get some sort of reaction out of Brandi. So own it. Stop worrying about Brandi’s actions and worry about your own.

I’m struggling to stay neutral with Kam and LeeAnne right now. I think LeeAnne is hurting and is acting out, and for some reason Kameron is literally her puppet. She will nod and agree with whatever LeeAnne says, and we have seen her lie more than once to protect L. I agree with Cary – “Girl, Mirror.” D’Andra also thinks the phone gate situation is super petty, and she tells us, “If you’re going back to your old habits you’re not changing.” I have seen a change in LeeAnne for sure, and I’m being 100% genuine about that. I’m just not here for the childish antics that seem to be going on. It’s just not important or worth it in the grand scheme of things.

One more episode – Steph’s throwing Travis a frat party before he goes to Harvard (LOL I love it) and then it’s onto the reunion.

RHOD: THE GROWERS & THE SHOW-ERS

We continue right where we left off – Copenhagen Day 2, after Brandi confronts LeeAnne about calling her an alcoholic.  Brandi is the first to go, and the rest of the girls all get up to leave as well.  We are left with Kameron and D’Andra, and D’Andra is the first to break the silence.  She apologizes to Kam for the night before, and I’m guessing anything prior to that may have hurt Kam’s feelings.  (I don’t think D owed K an apology at all, if you want my opinion.)  The way Kameron receives D’Andra’s apology is very telling about her as a person.  Kameron clearly still thinks she did nothing wrong, which is mind boggling to me.  D’Andra is being open and honest with Kameron, and she’s becoming emotional.  I thought Kameron showed no compassion whatsoever, and I don’t believe her when she says things like, “I’ll always be there for you D’Andra.”  It’s bullshit.  You’re sitting here, so condescending when your “friend” is trying to make it right with you.  D’Andra also tells Kameron that she doesn’t want her to get swept up in what’s going on between herself and LeeAnne.  The only rational comment from Kameron this entire scene is when she says that she does believe LeeAnne and D’Andra still have a friendship and that they will get past it.  In D’s confessional, she tells us that she would like to have her friendship back with LeeAnne, and although they may not ever get back to what they were, it would be nice to have peace in their relationship.  Kameron and D’Andra hug it out, and all is good between them.  (Or so we think.)

Copenhagen: Day 3

The next morning the girls get up and are planning their day.  Some are going to go boating, and some are going to go biking.  I did LOL when LeeAnne was like, “I’m going on the boat, so if you don’t want to be around me today then don’t come on the boat.” LMAO.  Kameron wants to go where LeeAnne goes, and Steph admits she’s co-dependent on Brandi, so she’ll go with her.  (LMAO, I’m literally Steph.  When we go away with a group of girls and we’re all kind of doing our own thing for a little while, I’m always like to my BFF’s, Jen & Mel, “I’m staying with you.” LOL.)  Cary is making the girl separate, so LeeAnne, D’Andra and Stephanie all choose to go boating, while Cary, Brandi and Kameron decide to go biking.

 Brandi makes a harmless comment about how she wants to see LeeAnne riding a bike because she’ll look like the Wicked Witch, and LeeAnne gets pissed.  She asks Brandi why she would call her that, and asks if she’s still mad from the night before, and Brandi says that she is.  I mean, I don’t really blame Brandi.  We see LeeAnne saying that “Brandi’s not sophisticated enough to be an alcoholic, she’s just a drunk”, along with numerous other rude as fuck comments, and I wouldn’t get over it that quickly either.  If ever.

LeeAnne sits with the girls and tells them that she’s upset over the comment, but somehow this gets so twisted and LeeAnne brings up how she’s held to a different standard than the other girls, and how come no one is talking about how D’Andra got violent?  First off, I don’t know if I would use the word “violent” to describe D’Andra’s behavior.  I think LeeAnne and D’Andra were both aggressive – but why are we talking about this!?  This isn’t about your argument with D’Andra, this is about you calling Brandi an alcoholic – which you did.  LeeAnne’s argument with D’Andra and her comment about Brandi are two totally separate issues, so I have no idea why we are talking about this like they’re related.  Kameron of course is agreeing with whatever LeeAnne says, and poor Stephanie looks uncomfortable and just wants to be supportive to everyone and be the mediator.  LeeAnne does bring up that D’Andra apologized to Kam and hasn’t apologized to her, which I can see why that would be hurtful to her.  However, you need to give it time – L & D have a lot to discuss.  I think D’Andra is waiting for the right time.

Side Note: When they show the clip of Kameron talking shit to LeeAnne about D’Andra’s apology, I’m just done.  Can we get a new cast member please?  I’ve had it with Kameron.  She’s so fake, and I’m just over it.  She’s such a bad person.

The girls are all off doing their daily activities.  LOL @ Steph, “I’m not a fan of boats, but I am a fan of hot captains.”  So far LeeAnne, D’Andra and Stephanie are having a nice, relaxing boat ride.  Meanwhile, Cary, Brandi and Kameron are biking all over town, and we learn that Cary dated Lance Armstrong for a year.  I have questions about this! LOL.  I love that the girls see each other, and hang out for a little while on the trampolines and are just being silly and having fun.  After a little while, they depart, and Steph, LeeAnne and D’Andra head to lunch.

Thank god for Stephanie.  Steph orders tequila, because, “Tequila is a happy drink!” and her kindness and calm demeanor is exactly what D’Andra and LeeAnne need right now.  Steph just gets right into it, and tells them that they really should talk to each other because she knows that they love each other and wants them to make up.  In her confessional, Stephanie tells us that their fight reminds her of herself and Brandi, and she knows how much it sucked, and how at the end of the day none of the bullshit mattered.  What mattered was having her best friend back.  The girls do talk, and they both seem to be on the same page.  D’Andra is still holding onto the money comment, and LeeAnne is harboring resentment over the “separate lives” comment.  They both agree that they need to move on from it.  LeeAnne also says that she feels as though D’Andra doesn’t respect her or their friendship, and D’Andra says that’s not true at all.  They both seem to get emotional, and they both seem serious in moving forward with their friendship.  It seems so promising!  (If you follow the girls on Social Media, you know this doesn’t last.  So I’m wondering – wtf happened?)

Later that night the girls are all going to Tivoli Gardens, and I’m dying at their Danish Girl outfits.  I’m loving that LeeAnne and D’Andra seem to be headed in the right direction.  I wish that this lasted.  After the carnival, the girls go to dinner.  Someone brings up the fact that Stephanie mediated during lunch, and LeeAnne and D’Andra have made up.  Brandi definitely seems pissed off by this – she calls Steph Dr. Phil in her confessional, which I do not like.  I’m trying to figure out why Brandi would be upset that the girls are friends with LeeAnne.  I don’t think Brandi is malicious in any way, and the more I keep thinking about it, I’m coming to the conclusion that Brandi is probably hurt by the girls.  I think she wants her friends to have her back more – LeeAnne has said some fucked up things about Brandi, and I think if I was in Brandi’s position, I would kind of be like WTF, too.

Cary brings up the fact that she told Brandi how LeeAnne was pissed off that morning about the Wicked Witch comment.  LeeAnne admits that she was mad about it, because she thought that they were fine after her apology the night before, but Brandi wasn’t fine that morning.  D’Andra asks Brandi if there is more to it than just that – and Brandi admits that there is.  Brandi kind of bugs out during this dinner, and she definitely has it out for LeeAnne.  I’m proud of LeeAnne for keeping her cool and remaining calm.  The dinner is super awkward, and it sucks that this group can’t get along for like ten minutes.  (With that being said, I’m not blaming Brandi.  I can’t speak for Brandi, but my personal opinion is that she’s hurt and doesn’t feel like her friends are sticking up for her.  Just my thought!)

Copenhagen: Day 4

The girls are planning on meeting Cary’s family today, and they are also going to go swimming in the Baltic Sea.  (Side note: I really want to travel, and go swimming in the Baltic Sea.  Adding this to my bucket list.)  They head over to one of her family member’s houses (sorry, I’m really drawing a blank on whose house it was!) and Cary is feeling really happy and loved and surrounded by family.  And then – Mark & Zuri surprise her!  Ahhhh this was my favorite moment.  I was so excited for her when Zuri came out – she was clearly shocked, and thrilled.  It was so heartwarming.  (I’m not crying, you are!)   They all sit down for lunch, and I’m LOLing at Zuri and Stephanie.  Zuri is freaking out because she doesn’t want Cary to try the pickled herring, and Stephanie literally looks like she may throw up when she takes a bit of the fish.  Cary also FaceTimes with her parents, and it’s a special moment for her and her family.  I’m happy for her.

They all head out to the Baltic Sea.  Cary tells us that people take the plunge into the sea naked, and it’s supposed to be cleansing or something, or it indicates that you’ll have a good year.  (I think this is cool.  I’m all for swimming, I may be part mermaid, so I 100% would’ve taken the plunge.  Probably not naked, but I would’ve gone under for sure.)  Zuri is a riot – “You don’t get privacy!?” LMAO.  She’s so cute.  Cary’s family is European, and they have no problem getting naked.  I’m LOLing at Stephanie, “Vagina’s and Franks everywhere!”  LeeAnne takes out her phone and is videoing them, and Cary does tell her to stop.  Brandi is topless in the water, and when she realizes that LeeAnne is filming she’s like WTF?  Everyone freaks out after seeing Mark naked, and I am literally dead at Cary’s confessional:  This is the infamous Deuber Dick that allegedly got sucked at the roundup.  DEAD.

Cary says goodbye to Zuri and Mark and tells Zuri she’ll see them later, that she’s going to have a goodbye dinner with the girls that night.  Once they’re all on the bus, all hell kind of breaks loose.  Brandi confronts LeeAnne about filming them.  At first, I didn’t think LeeAnne was being malicious at all.  (My thoughts on this change, though.)  But with that being said, I can see why Brandi would be pissed.  Her and LeeAnne don’t get along – why are you filming her?  Kameron asks what difference it makes, because it’s being filmed by Bravo anyway, but there is actually a huge difference in that.  Bravo edits it.  We’re not going to see a video of Brandi’s tits floating around the internet when Bravo films it.  And since Bravo does film it, it’s not necessary for LeeAnne to take a video.  LeeAnne deletes the video, but Brandi still isn’t really letting it go.  She tells LeeAnne that she’s a manipulative, vindictive, bitch and that she is videoing them to use it against them.  Another awkward bus ride.

The girls arrive to dinner, and it’s funny that someone refers to it as “The Last Supper.”  We’re having a nice moment, and Cary is saying what a wonderful time they had, and they’re all talking about their favorite moments.  We get to Brandi, and she tells us that her favorite moment was meeting Cary’s family and going swimming in the Baltic – and then she addresses LeeAnne and tells her that she kind of ruined that moment for her by filming them.  Steph chimes in and explains why Brandi is upset – there is a distrust between Brandi and LeeAnne, so you can understand why she would be weary of her having a video where B is swimming naked.  Brandi really lays into LeeAnne – she thinks that LeeAnne has an agenda, and if she’s mad at Brandi she won’t just go to her and tell her, she’ll tell everyone else.  It gets real awkward though, when Brandi tells LeeAnne, “I don’t think anybody here trusts you.”  Everyone looks beyond uncomfortable, and no one says anything.

What an episode – and what an ending!  In the preview for next week, we see Brandi call all of the girls fake bitches, and storms out of the restaurant.  We also learn that LeeAnne cloned Brandi’s phone?  Like what?  The cloning of the phone is why I now do not believe LeeAnne DIDN’T have malicious intent while filming.  Like, this is exactly the kind of shit that Brandi is talking about.  And for Kameron to think it’s funny is very telling about her as a person as well.

These episodes keep getting crazier and crazier.  I can only imagine what’s going to go down at the reunion.

Until next week….

RHOD: SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN DENMARK

rhod_supertease_cheers

The Circus has arrived! (Cary’s words, not mine, LOL.)  The girls are all exhausted from the plane ride, and as they pile into the bus they all decide they’re going to have a chill day at the hotel, take a nap, and go to dinner at a restaurant at the hotel that Cary picked (it’s a Michelin star restaurant, FYI.)

The girls all seem super loopy on the bus – Kam admits to taking a sleeping pill on the plane, because who can sleep with those loud motors!? – and she doesn’t think it’s fully worn off yet. Kam tells LeeAnne she brought a leather jacket to be hip, and LeeAnne asks, “Who are you?”  She then makes a comment about how Kam is wearing leopard, and somehow we end up with Kam trying to rap?  It makes the girls laugh though, and I’m just happy everyone seems to be getting along.  Of course, it’s a short lived moment.  I didn’t exactly see what happened, but champagne got spilled, and it ended up all over D’Andra.  Kameron says, “Karma is a bitch!” as D is trying is to clean up the mess.  In her confessional, we see D’Andra say, “Karma may be a bitch, but you’re the bitch that spilled the champagne.”  LOL get it D!

We’re at the Hotel (Hotel Nobis), and the girls are sharing two penthouse suites. Brandi, Stephanie and D’Andra are sharing one, and Kameron, LeeAnne and Cary are in the other.  They’re all connected though, so they can easily go through each others rooms when they want.  Kameron is showing LeeAnne everything she packed (honestly, she’s an expert packer and we could all take some lessons from those organizational skills), while Cary and D’Andra are talking.  D’Andra is bringing up the awkwardness between herself and Kameron, and how she is still hurt about how Kam reacted to her at her husbands mural unveiling event.  I wasn’t aware of this until right now, but apparently Jimmy knew about the “k-cup in the butt” thing, and that’s what everyone has been talking about.  Like D’Andra says, there were only six girls in Beaver Creek, so clearly one of them told Jimmy, and the story circulated.

Downstairs, Brandi and Steph are talking. Steph tells us in her confessional that Brandi had confided in her that she had a plan – she was going to get as wasted as possible to see if LeeAnne would call her an alcoholic to her face.  This made me LOL, but I agree Steph, I don’t think it’s the best plan.  Stephanie thinks that Brandi is being passive aggressive, and just needs to have a conversation with LeeAnne face to face.  I agreed with this.  (Until the end of the episode, but we’ll get to that later.)  Hearing Brandi say, “I just want to have fun and make her feel uncomfortable”, however, made me feel uncomfortable for Stephanie, because she’s clearly put in such an awkward position.

Girlsssss

The girls come down for dinner, and they’re all absolutely slaying. Steph looks so gorgeous – I am obsessed with that dress, blue is definitely her color.  Not to mention she’s sparkling like a diamond.  Cary seems to be the only one excited to eat at this particular restaurant.  Steph and Kam are struggling (Kameron wants to order a Quesadilla, LOL) and Steph tells us, “Fancy food is disgusting.”  LOL I love Stephanie.

B Shots

The waitress gives all of the girls shots (I have no clue what it was), but judging by their facial expressions after taking it, it’s strong AF. Brandi is really pushing her plan, and I’m dying.  She’s just taking all of the shots and stealing everyone’s drinks, and I’m LOLing.  I think everyone at the table is Steph when she says, “Shit, shit, shit.”  LeeAnne doesn’t call Brandi an alcoholic to her face in this scene, however, she does say in her confessional that Brandi is proving her point that she’s a drunk.  Interesting.  Brandi continues her plan, and builds a champagne glass pyramid.  Steph is paranoid because she didn’t think it would go this far.

Copenhagen

Cary brings up LeeAnne’s wedding, and they discuss wedding planning, and of course, dress shopping. I think it was Cary who asked why D’Andra didn’t go.  D’Andra responds, “Because I was asked at 9:00 PM the night before and I had work that day.”  Kameron of course has to insert herself, and asks, “Why didn’t you call her?”  I don’t even understand the point of this question, to be honest.  Why would she call her?  D’Andra snaps at Kameron and tells her it’s none of her business, and I agree – it’s not.  This is between D’Andra and LeeAnne and Kameron needs to stay out of it.  Kameron is infuriating, she just keeps repeating, “It’s just a question.”  Cary tries to speak, and Kam tells her, “Be careful, you’ll get attacked.”  Really Kam?  D’Andra says she’s not attacking anyone, and Cary responds with, “I know.”  Cary tells us in a confessional that Kameron is great at pushing buttons, and she’s absolutely correct.

img_5292

D’Andra tells LeeAnne that she feels like her and Kameron are ganging up on her, and LeeAnne says she’s not ganging up on anyone. I don’t necessarily think it’s LeeAnne’s doing in this situation – I think Kam is taking it upon herself to insert herself between LeeAnne and D’Andra.  But I can certainly see why D’Andra would feel that way.  The girls are all still going back and forth, and Kam says, “I’ve been a good friend to you, D’Andra.” D disagrees with this – she doesn’t feel  like Kam has been a good friend lately, and says so.  She goes on to say, “I wasn’t attacking you Kameron, I was having a conversation with LeeAnne,” to which Kam says, “Actually you were attacking me.”  D’Andra replies, “No I was not.  Stay out of something that’s not your business.”  Preach D!!

img_5308

Kameron is honestly infuriating me at this point – she’s totally pushing D’Andra, and trying to get a reaction out of her. She keeps telling her to calm down, and up until this point D has been calm, she just has a tone in her voice that conveys her annoyance. When Kameron says, “Is this how your Mother yells at you?” I literally just stared at the TV and was like, what the actual fuck? Kameron goes on to say that D’Andra “attacked” her at Jeremy’s mural unveil, and that she attacked her MIL.  (I don’t think Kameron knows what the word attacked means.)  D’Andra tells Kam that she is condescending, and then she yells, “You are a liar!”  (I’m honestly so proud of D’Andra right now.)  Kameron of course is going to take this to an entirely different level.  “You’ve broken a friendship,” is what she tells D.  She actually brings up the K-Cup (I can’t, Lord help us all.)  And then in typical Kameron fashion, she declares that she’s done and stands up to leave.

img_5296

Dinner is over, and the girls get up to leave shortly after Kameron’s departure. D’Andra runs into Kameron in the hallway, and their fight continues.  Kameron tells D’Andra that she’s “disgusted” by her, and proceeds to call her a psycho and says that she’s nuts.  (Seriously?)  D’Andra gets on the elevator, and the rest of the girls are right behind.  Kam is absolutely refusing to get on the elevator with D’Andra.  Brandi steps in, the elevator closes, and D’Andra and Cary go up, leaving Kam, LeeAnne, Brandi and Steph still in the hallway.  Kameron is visibly upset and starts crying.  I’m so over this.

img_5304

Back in the suite, LeeAnne tells D’Andra she wants her to be calm. She says she’s coming off aggressive, which she is, but I mean, who wouldn’t be?  Kameron is impossible to have any kind of argument with.  You can’t get a word in edgewise, and she’s always making herself out to be the victim.  LeeAnne talks about her own calmness, and D’Andra does throw shade when she says something like, “What’s it been, like six months?”  Of course this pisses LeeAnne off, though D’Andra says she didn’t mean it in a rude way.  Kameron, Cary, Brandi and Steph are also back in the suite – Kam is still crying, and talking shit about D’Andra.  LeeAnne joins in, and then it’s a huge “Hate on D” Party.  I’m so annoyed right now though – Cary is supposed to be a good friend of D’Andra, so why isn’t she sticking up for her?  I give Brandi a pass because she’s wasted,  and she already has her own issues with both Kameron and LeeAnne.  Stephanie also isn’t that close to D’Andra, and she’s Switzerland in this situation.  But really Cary?  I was disappointed.

img_5290

D’Andra enters the room and says she wants to clear something up. She brings up the fact that it was only the six girls in the room who were at Beaver Creek, so if rumors are circulating about D’Andra and the K-Cup, it obviously came from one of them.  Kameron snaps that she did tell Jimmy about it, because “she’s her best friend” (weird), and then again demands to know why D’Andra keeps bringing up her MIL.  (See? Literally impossible.)  LeeAnne keeps chiming in, and D’Andra tells her to shut up, and then all hell breaks loose.  LeeAnne almost loses her cool, and I thought there was going to be a full on brawl.  Thankfully, she doesn’t, and she excuses herself and says she’s going to bed.

Brandi isn’t done with this yet, though. She’s yelling for LeeAnne downstairs, and I’m literally LOLing.  Especially at Stephanie, “Brandi, go home, you’re drunk.”  LeeAnne comes back up and they talk, and Kameron and LeeAnne are both saying that they’re done with D’Andra.  Brandi does stick up for D at this point, and says to LeeAnne, “That’s your best friend.”  LeeAnne says that she’s D’Andra’s best friend, but not the other way around.  I’m confused here.  We end the night with Steph telling us, “I need a shot of a tequila and a hug.”  I think we all do.

giphy2

The next morning, the girls are up and planning the day. (I am literally Brandi, hungover and throwing up LOL.)  Kameron and LeeAnne are talking, and of course their topic of conversation is D’Andra.  I’m starting to wonder if these two would even have anything to talk about if they weren’t talking shit about D.

The girls all go their separate ways. Brandi and Steph are heading to the brewery, and Cary and D’Andra are going to a cooking class.  I’m so excited for some fun time with Brandi and Steph!  They’re being silly, and they decide that “Jerry’s hole” sounds like their kind of drink.  LMAO, I love them.  LeeAnne and Kameron join them, (honestly I’m kind of disappointed because I was enjoying it being just the two of them) and they bring up the craziness from the night before.  LeeAnne admits that she almost lost her cool last night, and says that she wanted to punch D’Andra.  Steph commends her on her self-restraint, and applauds her for walking away.  Steph says something along the lines of “LeeAnne’s changed” and then she says, “Don’t you think so, Brandi?”  And then there’s crickets.  DEAD.

At the cooking lesson, D’Andra explains to Cary that she’s annoyed because she felt like LeeAnne and Kameron were tag teaming her. She tells Cary she thinks she’s wrong how she treated Kameron.  (I personally don’t see this, I don’t think she did anything wrong.  Like Steph tells us earlier in the episode, she thinks D’Andra has felt judged for a long time, and it caused her to lash out.)

Later that night, the girls all head out together to go to the performance for the release album. Cary’s cousin, Camilla, is in a band with her husband, Johan, called Eugenia.  It was really sweet seeing Cary meet up with her family, I was excited for her.  Camilla’s voice is absolutely amazing.  I was in awe listening to her sing.  The night was really nice, and all of the girls got along.

Back at the hotel, the girls are all sitting in a circle in the lounge, and they cheers to Cary for bringing them to Copenhagen. Cary thanks them all for coming with her, and they talk about her cousin’s performance.  So far, the night has been completely drama free.  That’s about to change real quick.

Cary

Brandi confronts LeeAnne, saying that Mama Dee told her that she had told Mama Dee she was an alcoholic. LeeAnne pauses and says, “I don’t believe I called you that.”  (I call bullshit.)  Cary brings up the fact that LeeAnne specifically used the word alcoholic at Kam’s event.  LeeAnne doesn’t believe this either.  And then Kameron sits there and says that LeeAnne didn’t say that – uh, yes she did!  Thank you Cary for speaking the truth!  Cary tells us in a confessional that Kameron’s just being a pussy and doesn’t want to go against LeeAnne.  LeeAnne tells Brandi that if she said that she was sorry, and she doesn’t feel that way.  Brandi opens up to the girls, and becomes emotional.  For starters, anyone spreading that rumor while Brandi is still in the adoption process with Bruin can be life altering.  She also tells them that although she wasn’t an alcoholic, she did hit a low point with drinking when her and Brian were having issues.  All is okay – and then LeeAnne goes in her confessional and says, “Brandi isn’t sophisticated enough to be an alcoholic, she’s just a drunk.”  ARE YOU KIDDING ME?  LeeAnne, you’re the queen of telling everyone to own their shit – so if that’s how you feel about Brandi why don’t you own it to her face?  I’m so sick of this.  This Mean Girl stuff is just complete and utter bullshit.

I didn’t think it was possible for next week’s preview to look even more insane than this episode, yet here we are.

Until next week….
