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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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….
