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.
