RHOBH S10 E2: TO LIVE AND TEXT IN BEVERLY HILLS

 

I’m absolutely loving RHOBH Season 10 right now! I know it’s only the second episode but these ladies are giving me exactly what I want. So here for it.

We start out with Dorit & PK. We learn that they have moved into what Dorit claims is her “dream house.” Dorit addresses what the media says about her and PK’s financial situation, and that the truth is it just doesn’t fit the narrative that they’re poor.

Dorit says the house is in her name, and in her confessional a producer wants to know why it’s not in PK’s name as well. “What difference does it make?” Dorit asks. They open up about their financial situation, and it’s nice that they finally can and let the viewers in on a little more. I’m under the impression they couldn’t really share with us last year. I’m honestly really loving Dorit & PK right now. If you told me that two seasons ago I would say you’re lying.

Garcelle is with her friend, Ali Landry. She has also moved, and is showing Ali the house. She felt like she needed a change since her divorce. We learn that she has two 11 year old boys. (I’m unsure if she has full custody of them.) Garcelle feels like this change is good for her – Garcelle 2.0. I love it. She tells us that she divorced her husband because he was cheating. She asked to use his phone one day and saw a text that said “I love you.” When she confronted him about it, he admitted he was having an affair. FOR FIVE YEARS. Holy shit, that blew my mind. Garcelle is such a bad ass though – she sent an email to his friends and colleagues outing him. I love it.

Rinna and Teddi are out for a walk, and Rinna fills in Teddi on her daughter, Amelia. She had spoken to Amelia’s therapist and she’s not doing well. School and work is tough for her, and she’s been having anxiety and panic attacks. Amelia has been vocal about her anxiety on social media and when Rinna starts reading the post I honestly teared up. I feel for Amelia – I get what she’s going through, I’ve been there – Hell, I’m still there, and it sucks. Rinna feels in a way that she failed as a parent because of it, and I just want to hug her because that’s so not true.

Kyle and Sutton are still in NYC and they meet up for dinner. It’s a little awkward, honestly. We learn that Sutton is divorced. She’s also opening a boutique in 5 days in WeHo. Kyle can’t make the store opening. Sutton thinks they should do a trunk show, which Kyle is into. They talk about Yacht Rock – Kyle’s like, “What’s Yacht Rock? Should I know what that is?” Sutton responds, “Yeah, it’s rock music you listen to on a yacht.” Lmfao, like WTF?

We are at Denise’s. She’s back in Malibu, leasing a house. She fills in Aaron on the whole Charlie thing. There will be a hearing in November and Denise wants no part of it. It’s truly to protect the girls – she doesn’t want them to hear bad things about their father, because he’s still their father. She’s such a saint. We also learn that Denise has been in tremendous amounts of pain but hasn’t really said anything about it. She has a hernia and needs surgery.

Garcelle & Erika meet for breakfast/brunch at Sweet Butter. We learn that Garcelle also has another son, who is 28. She just found out he’s having a baby. Garcelle tells Erika she’s next and she’s like, “No!” I’m dying when she’s like “Do you want me picking up someone from Pre-K?” And we see that clip of when they’re in Tokyo (I think) and she death stares the bicyclist who almost runs her over. LMAO. I like the connection that Garcelle and Erika have. It’s not forced and they seem really chill with each other. Also dead when Garcelle tells us, “If I swam in the lady pond, it would be Erika’s pond.” 😂 They both talk about how they’re going to Sutton’s store opening, and they both don’t know her too well. They talk about Garcelle dating, and she said she needs to find someone who would be okay with the whole package since she has young kids. Erika gets it, and she says that Tom embraced her son warmly and she gets emotional. It’s obvious how much Erika loves and respects Tom. I have all the feels.

Teddi is having a retreat (for work) and decides to invite all the girls. Her text is a jumbled mess of words and the girls reaction to it kills me.

Teddi – you either want them to come or you don’t. Stop being wishy washy.

It’s the day of Denise’s surgery and she’s a nervous wreck. She says she wishes she could just flash forward into the future to know everything goes well.

We cut to Denise in a hotel and Aaron saying, “It worked, we’re in the future.” 😂 Poor Denise actually had 4 hernias and her surgery was much more invasive than she thought it was going to be.

Over at Erika and Tom’s, we learn that Erika got the part of Roxie in Chicago on Broadway!!!! Yay!!!! I am so beyond excited for her.

Tom tells her he is so proud of her, and she becomes super emotional. (I do, too.) His support means the world to her. Erika is truly giving me everything this season. I love it.

The girls are all getting ready for Sutton’s opening. Denise can’t come of course because of her surgery, and we know Kyle also won’t be there because she’s filming Halloween in North Carolina.

Lisa Rinna will forever be my favorite pot stirrer. Teddi & Rinna ride together to the opening. Rinna has a very busy week the following week and can’t make it to Teddi’s retreat. “I have to come clean,” Rinna tells Teddi. “I was a little sassy, I said I was relieved I didn’t have to go to your retreat.” Teddi says she doesn’t care, but I believe she does. She’s being weird about the whole thing, but Rinna is totally instigating her, too. I think after Rinna’s comment, Teddi feels like no one wants to go. But she doesn’t voice that, and I don’t even know if that’s true, just a guess.

We’re at the opening. I’m dying when Erika tells us that you don’t need to announce you’re wearing couture – it’s elitist. Sutton is so excited that the Mayor is here. “You’re the hottest Mayor ever!” Lmfao at the look Erika and Dorit exchange with each other.

Dorit tells Teddi that she’s coming to her retreat, but will be coming after lunch and has to leave at a certain time. Teddi is so triggered. “Truthfully I don’t care if you all come or don’t come.” Everyone is like, WTF? Sutton’s like, “I was coming, but why am I coming if you don’t care?” Dorit says she wants to go to support Teddi. Teddi is being super weird about the entire thing. She’s so rude, and I would usually go in harder on her for this but I’m giving her a pass because of pregnancy hormones.

I loved this episode! Next week looks interesting – dinner party at Kyle’s and we know Teddi gets upset about something. Also something weird looked like it was going on with Denise and Aaron. We shall see!

Until next week!

RHOBH S10 E1: THE CROWN ISN’T SO HEAVY

Beverly Hills is back! And from the looks of this first episode I believe (and hope, fingers crossed) that we’ll be in for a wild season.

We’re in NY, and we learn Erika is not only walking in Kyle’s show, but she’s in the VFiles show as well. (She’s such a bad ass.) We also learn that Denise & Aaron are currently residing in Malibu.

Kyle calls Dorit and begs for her help because she’s so stressed out over the show. I don’t blame Tracie, one of the assistants, for getting super annoyed with Kyle. She comes in like a tornado freaking out about the pieces they’re going to be displaying. Thank God for Dorit.

Dorit also tells us that her Beverly Beach lawsuit is over – they finally came to an agreement.

Erika, Denise, Teddi & Lisa Rinna all go out in the city. Erika brings them to Shakers in New Jersey, where she used to strip/dance.

Garcelle has arrived, and I’m loving her energy! She’s truly a breath of fresh air.

Garcelle, Denise and Teddi all head over to Monarch, and Erika meets up with them. The ladies all seem to be getting along really well.

We’re introduced to Sutton, who’s friends with Lisa Rinna. They’re going to some fitting – Dolce & Gabbana custom makes clothes for her or something.

I am dying at Lisa sitting in the throne, and when she tries on the crown. “It’s not that heavy.” 😂

Sutton comes out, and honestly I’m just like WTF is this look? I’m not one to make fun of other girls appearances, but Sutton in later scenes really bugs me with her judgements of the other girls, so I’m stooping to her level right now. Whatevs.

Denise, Garcelle, Teddi & Erika meet up for drinks. Teddi informs Denise that Charlie had been shit talking Denise in the press – he called her a coward. We learn that he doesn’t want to pay child support anymore. Erika calls Tom for legal advice, but Denise doesn’t want it. She brushes it aside and says she’ll deal with it when she gets back to LA.

It’s the night before the show, and all of the girls are meeting for dinner.

Sutton meets the girls, and I’m so appalled at how judgmental she is! She makes a comment about not knowing it was “disco themed”, she thinks Erika’s dress is too short, and she doesn’t care about celebrity designers when Dorit says she’s wearing Fenty. Like shut up Sutton, no one asked you.

I am excited, however, when Teddi announces she’s pregnant! Congratulations Teddi!!

It’s the day of the Fashion Show, and all the girls are getting ready. I’m LOLing because Tracie wants Kyle to stay away from her, but Kyle informs Tracie one of her daughters will be walking.

The show was a huge success. You think that’s the end of the episode, right? Wrong. So, so wrong.

Kyle tells us, “We we’re all so happy that day. It’s hard to imagine how terrible things would soon become.” We then get a flash across our screen:

We get a montage of stuff going down with Denise – it looks like Brandi Glanville is saying that she and Denise had hooked up, and Denise is denying it. I don’t know what the hell is happening, but I’m very curious to find out what’s up and what the truth is.

What’d you guys think of this episode!?

Until next week!

PUMP RULES: S8 E1 – THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Pump Rules is back y’all! I’ve been so excited for this, and as far as first episodes go, this isn’t a bad season opener.

Bravo

We first see Lisa – she talks to us about friendships, and how she thought they we’re so solid. We get a couple of clips of Jax fighting with Sandoval, and The Witches of WeHo arguing. Lisa then tells us that we have some newcomers, and they are bringing just as much drama as their predecessors. We get clips of the newbies fighting, and pretty much everyone bugging out. Then we begin.

Bravo 2.png

We start out at TomTom – both Tom’s arrive in the sidecar. We learn that TomTom is thriving and has been open now for almost a year. Schwartz thinks it’s because they’ve hired such great workers. We meet Max, who is the general manager, and Dayna, who is either a hostess or a server – unsure which one. Schwartz says Max is the glue who holds everything together, and Dayna is so good at her job that she’s being trained by Lisa to work at Sur. We learn that Dayna has apparently hooked up with Max – last night. (I’m trying to give the newbies a chance but I just don’t care about Dayna or Max. I’ll try to be more open-minded, I promise!)

Over at Sur, we learn that Raquel is now a server. (Or is it surver? Whatever, LOL.) Brett is new too, and is also a server. Scheana is hanging all over him in typical Scheana fashion. She’s loving being the HBIC at Sur right now. Lisa is at Sur and asks Raquel how she’s doing. I’m dying when Raquel says that she feels like being in pageants really helps her as a server. Lmao – Lisa’s like, “That’s a new one.” Lisa also asks about James. Raquel says it’s triggering for him that she works there. Like obviously, Raquel. I think it’s super insensitive of her – but anything to be on the show, right?

Bravo 4.png

Scheana introduces Brett to Jax. We learn that Jax is basically the only one working at Sur – Katie, Lala, Brittany & Ariana no longer work there. Jax teases Scheana and asks her if she’s dating Brett. Scheana’s like, “No, we just met!” But they have hooked up. Brett tells us in his confessional that they kissed – and it wasn’t what he expected. A producer asks, “Are you saying she’s a bad kisser?” And he says yes! What a total dick! We also find out that Scheana hasn’t spoken to Adam at all, but she did briefly date Max, the GM at TomTom – but he ghosted her.

Switching back to TomTom, we watch Max and Dayna have a super awkward convo about their hookup the night before. Sorry – don’t get the Max appeal here? He looks like a tool and also seems like a total fuckboy. 🤷🏼‍♀️ We go back over to Sur, and Scheana asks Jax about his upcoming wedding. He talks about how things have been really weird with Sandoval – he said Sandoval’s been ignoring him, and he “demoted” him to a groomsman because he knows he has a lot going on. Jax says it like he’s doing Sandoval a favor, but I don’t buy that for a second. Jax is annoyed with Sandoval and is now being petty. Switching back to TomTom, Sandoval feels like Jax is not coming from a good place by demoting him.

Bravo 5

Stassi and Beau dine at TomTom. Stassi tells us how she is a NY Times Bestselling author (yay!) but she’s currently having a hard time because her grandmother just passed away. Poor Stassi, I feel so bad for her! Lisa greets her, and Beau goes to say hi to the guys while Lisa and Stassi chat. Lisa is proud of Stassi – though she can’t remember the name of her book, lmao. “She’s a bestselling bitch!” She asks about her friends, and Stassi confides in Lisa that she’s annoyed with Kristen. She says that Kristen has been talking about her Katie, because they’ve called her out for saying she’s broken up with Carter when they’re still living together, hanging out and sleeping together. She feels like Kristen is lying to her. Stassi thinks she may have outgrown Kristen and their friendship – she doesn’t feel like Kristen is growing as a person.

At Stassi and Beau’s, Stassi is writing her grandmothers eulogy, and is nervous about it. This somehow gets her in to talking about how at her funeral she wants it to be like a haunted house, and she also wants to be taxidermied so everyone can take selfies with her corpse. Lmaooooo, literally dead. I love that Beau just nods and goes along with her, and then tells us he finds it really creepy, but he just smiles. Stassi mentions that they’ll be missing Tom & Katie’s housewarming party because they’ll be at her grandmothers funeral. We know that Tom & Katie, Jax & Brittany, and Tom & Ariana have all moved to Valley Village, CA, and basically all have cookie cutter houses.

J and B.jpg

We go back and forth between all three couples in Valley Village. Tom tells Ariana how he was annoyed with Jax. Tom & Ariana buying a house together is a huge step for them and their relationship, because Ariana doesn’t care about getting married and does not want kids. Tom felt like Jax kept one-upping him about the house and “shitting all over it.” Ariana says that Jax “can’t help himself.”

Meanwhile, Jax is telling Brittany that him and Sandoval don’t really have that much in common anymore. “I’m getting married next month,” Jax says. Brittany says that she does wish Tom Sandoval would reach out to Jax more.

Tom & Katie are talking about their housewarming party and who is coming. Schwartz wants to make sure it’s okay with Kristen first before inviting Carter.

Back at Stassi’s, she tells us that Kristen is also moving to Valley Village, though it seems like her house may be further away from the other three couples. Stassi tells Beau she wants to see Kristen before they leave. She doesn’t care if Kristen is back with Carter, she just wants her to be honest about it.

Lala heads over to Villa Rosa to meet with Lisa. Lala is 7 months sober! (Yaaass girl!!!) Lala says she never wants to go back to the girl she was. She seems to be in a really good place. She tells Lisa that she did reach out to James, and she misses his friendship. You can tell Lisa feels for James, but she tells Lala, “he has to get sober.” They talk some more about how Lala would like to help volunteer at Vanderpump Dogs. (I would personally like to see Lala on RHOBH, but that’s just my opinon!)

Stassi heads over to Kristen’s apartment, and it’s obvious Kristen is upset. Stassi calls her out, and Kristen feels like if Stassi and Katie were truly her friends they would accept her situation without question. Stassi says she doesn’t care if she is with Carter, just to stop saying she is going through a break up if she’s not. Kristen is moving in a week, and she tells Stassi that Carter isn’t moving with her. (Stassi thanks the Breakup Gods, LOL.) Kristen tells us in her confessional that she did break up with Carter, but she can’t just “cut him completely off.” Sorry, I’m with Stassi on this one. That’s not a break up then. Stassi is happy to hear that Carter won’t be moving into Kristen’s new house, and they hug it out.

It’s the night of Tom & Katie’s Housewarming Party. (I’m dying at Schwartz in his mumu, lmao.) We meet Logan, who is also a server? Sorry, someone correct me if I’m wrong, please. Peter is there, and he pulls Dayna aside. I’m DEAD when we learn that Dayna is one of the chicks from the boys hotel party last season! Peter says he didn’t want things to be awkward between them, and Dayna’s like, “Why would they be?” Peter says they kissed in the bathroom, and Dayna denies it. Awkward AF. (I think Dayna did kiss Peter, but is denying it now because she likes Max. Just a thought.) Dayna is eyeing Scheana and Max suspiciously – she hears Scheana mention that Max is going to her Palm Springs house the following weekend, and is super jelly. What did you expect, girl? I’m shaking my head.  Jax asks Kristen where her boyfriend is, and she says, “He’s not my boyfriend.”  Cue Carter walking in, and greeting Kristen like a significant other.

dead.jpg

Max and Brett are talking in the kitchen about Scheana.  Max totally downplays his relationship with Scheana (I mean, maybe it really wasn’t one) and Brett acts like he is annoyed by the fact Scheana “hangs all over him.”  Max calls her boy crazy.  Katie overhears all of this, and runs into the other room to tell Scheana.  Scheana confronts them, and is pissed.  “You’re the one who pursued me,” she tells Max.  She doesn’t get why Max is talking is about her – she thought that they were in a really good place and are like “best friends.”  Max totally doesn’t own anything he just said and immediately apologizes.  Scheana literally cries and is like, “I’m not boy crazy!” LMAO. Max and Scheana hug it out, while Dayna creepily watches and pouts.

Lala and Katie are chatting about Kristen and Carter.  Apparently, Kristen has been calling the girls super upset about her “breakup” with Carter.

Dayna.jpg

Meanwhile, Max ends up pulling Dayna aside.  Because Dayna is now leaving TomTom to start working at Sur, he wants to hang out with her.  He has a thing about having a work romance.  (He didn’t want he banged her a few nights ago though, right?) Dayna asks if he anything is going on with Scheana – she admits she overheard that he’s going to her Palm Springs house.  Max says he is going, but not alone, and nothing is going on with Scheana.

Lala decides she is going to confront Carter.  She calls him out for all the shit he’s put Kristen though, and Carter comes back saying that Kristen still calls him all the time, and he just helped her earlier that day doing a photoshoot.  He said if Kristen wanted him fully gone, he would be gone. Kristen can see Carter and Lala from her spot inside the house, and is starting to freak out.

Jax and Sandoval finally talk. Sandoval tells him how he felt – that Jax was being a one-upper.  Jax brings up the wedding, and says he feels like Sandoval hasn’t reached out to him.  Lmao at Tom with the receipts.  He pulls out his cell phone and is like, “Jax, I’ve texted you!” Jax doesn’t really say much back to that.  Sandoval admits he was hurt he was demoted from Best Man, and Jax admits that he did that just to “get his attention.”  Jax basically re-asks Sandoval if he would be his Best Man, and Sandoval replies that he would be honored.  Then they hug it out.  (Lmao, I honestly really love this friendship, so I’m going to be upset if we find out they’re not friends any longer IRL.)

K and L.jpg

Kristen is pissed that Lala confronted Carter.  She goes off on her, and is super aggressive, calling her a bitch.  Lala is pissed and is like, “Baby girl, I’m here for you! Don’t talk to me like that.”  Lala feels like Kristen is treating her like she treats Stassi and Katie, which infuriates Kristen even more. This makes Katie intervene, and Katie honestly is a total bitch to Kristen.  She’s yelling literally in her ear, and it’s just unneccessary.  Brittany gets involved and tries to get everyone to talk it out and make up, but it’s not happening.  Kristen leaves crying.

We get a clip of what’s to come this season, and it looks absolutely wild.

Thoughts!?

Until next week!

LOVE AFTER LOCKUP: BLINDED BY LOVE

Hey guys! I haven’t recapped in a while, just because life has been busy and I haven’t really had time. But I recently discovered Love After Lockup, and while this is easily one of the trashiest shows on television, it’s also reality tv gold. I’ve only seen the past four episodes, so I’m a little confused on certain things (mostly Amber & Vince) so bear with me! But I had to recap this since I was hooked after the first five minutes.

We start off with Lacey & Shane. They’re cake tasting, and we learn that their wedding is two weeks away. “We’ve only been together for a little while, but Shane & I have really good sex and I feel like he’s my soulmate.” That sounds promising, Lacey. Shane asks if John knows about the wedding – he doesn’t. Lacey lies to Shane after the cake tasting and says she’s going to go dress shopping, but she actually plans on meeting John because she wants him to take a paternity test to see if he’s her son Marlow’s father. She feels “guilty” for not telling Shane – why not tell him then? 🤔

Cheryl is meeting her sister, Lacy. Lacy works in a maximum security prison and is extremely weary about her sister’s relationship with Josh, who she hasn’t met yet. She begins to grill Cheryl about Josh, and it’s obvious that this meeting will most likely not go well.

Angela and Tony are “home” (@ Angela’s) and Angela wants answers about Michelle, the girl Tony cheated on her with. Tony says the night he went missing from the halfway house, he was with Michelle. “We went to play basketball.” Angela is like, “Tony, I saw the texts.” Tony comes clean and replies, “I went and got a hotel room with Michelle.” I think Tony is totally playing Angela and that Angela is completely delusional to think otherwise. In his confessional, Tony says he’s “addicted to women.” Eye roll – please. Tony tells Angela that Michelle was the only one, blah blah blah. Angela believes his every word and then they start kissing and the leather couch is making strange noises and I’m just super uncomfortable all around.

Lizzy & Daniel are officially engaged. Daniel doesn’t want to tell his mom, since she believed he was giving Lizzy a promise ring, NOT an engagement ring. They head home from their romantic night in the Parisian themed hotel, and when they arrive they realize Daniel’s entire family is there. They decide that they should just keep the news to themselves. Teresa wants to know how Lizzy liked the promise ring, and Daniel literally bites her head off. He then proceeds to just blurt out he’s engaged, and Teresa is shocked. She hugs Lizzy and says, “I hope this is what you want.” I was Team Teresa until she tells us she’s not sure Lizzy is good enough for her son. Ummm really?

Alex truly is such a piece of shit. Last episode, he left Glorietta at the restaurant, and we learn he never came home that night. We know he stayed at Kato’s, but Glorietta doesn’t know that. Alex goes to Glorietta’s work and picks right back up where he left off the night before. He wants to know why Glorietta loves him and wants to marry him. Honestly, nothing Glorietta says will be good enough. Alex is over this relationship and clearly has his ex, Juliana, on his mind. It’s so annoying to watch this though, because it’s like man up, Alex. Stop trying to turn it around on Glorietta and end it. Also, if he says that she wants to marry him for his tattoos and body one more time, I’m going to scream. He’s delusional, LMAO.

The entire Vince & Amber situation confuses me. So from what I’ve gathered, Amber, Puppy, and Amber’s mom all had a plan that Amber was going to use Vince for financial purposes? Question – who is Puppy? Just a friend? Anyway, Amber & Vince are heading to Amber’s family BBQ. Vince tells us in his confessional that he wants to “reignite the fire” between himself and Amber, and honestly, I feel kind of bad for him. Although there is something really off about him. Seeing Amber with her family actually made me a little bit emotional, though, and also normalized her more for me. Amber tells us that she can’t keep lying if she wants to move forward in life. Is she going to come clean to Vince?

Back over at Angela’s, we learn she bought Tony a motorcycle. (🤦🏼‍♀️) She tells him that if she sees a girl on the back of his bike she’s going to be pissed.

They go inside, and Angela tells Tony her sister is going to come over, and she can’t promise that her sister won’t question him. Tony begins to get annoyed that Angela keeps badgering him about the cheating. He tells Angela that she’s not appreciating the sacrifices he made by moving in with her. LMFAO is he serious? Finally, Tony’s true colors are showing. He tells us that he’s going to give this three months, but if Angela is still bringing up the cheating after that he’s out.

Cheryl & Lacy head to the restaurant to meet Josh. Josh is beyond rude, he barely even introduces himself to Lacy, clearly making a horrible first impression. Lacy grills Josh, and Cheryl gets upset. They argue, and Lacy leaves the restaurant. She’s totally over it and just wants to go home. Cheryl and Josh follow. We learn that Cheryl is a former drug user and stripper. She feels like she turned her life around and believes Josh has the ability to do the same. Lacy doesn’t want to hear it though. She thinks her sister is being pathetic and is “blinded by love.”

Lacey is heading over to John’s house. They’re being super flirty with each other when she gets there. She tells John the reason she’s there, and he’s totally fine with taking a paternity test. He says that he hopes Marlow is his son. John brings up Shane, but is making fun of him, calling him a “Backstreet Boy” and saying “He’s just a little kid.” (I mean, he’s not wrong about the second part – Shane is a baby.) Lacey gets annoyed and decides its time to leave. “I wish he could just be happy for me.” Lmao, really, Lacey? John walks Lacey to the car. John asks Lacey for a kiss, and she says no. She tells us that although she loves Shane, she is still attracted to John, and there will always be a connection. John tells Lacey not to marry Shane, and that she’s making a mistake.

And that’s how we end the episode. What’d you guys think!?

Until next week….
