RHOBH THROWBACK: THE DINNER PARTY FROM HELL

Allison Dubois

Do you guys remember when RHOBH used to be so good? I almost forgot until I re-watched The Dinner Party From Hell.  Pure Reality TV GOLD.  This is literally everything I want from my housewives – ridiculous, fun drama.  None of this Lucy Lucy Apple Juice stuff. These were the good old days.

Camille and Taylor are meeting up for lunch.  For those of you who don’t remember, this is Post-New York, where Kyle & Camille get into a huge argument.  Camille fills Taylor in on the fact that she plans to have a dinner party this upcoming Saturday, and she’s inviting all of the girls.  “I’m cautiously optimistic,” Camille tells Taylor.  She says that in addition to the girls coming, Camille is inviting her friend, Allison DuBois.  She explains to Taylor that Allison is a medium, and she has a show called Medium, which is about her life.  Camille tells us in her confessional that when Allison has too many cocktails, “she may hit below the belt.”  (We find that out soon enough.)

I truly miss Paul & Adrienne.  I loved them as a couple, they always made me laugh.  Paul is just yelling out for Adrienne, and then when we see him, he has a bandage on his nose.  Apparently he was wrestling with their son (who is 4) and got hurt.  Adrienne thinks Paul is being a huge baby.  LMAO.

Now we’re at Camille’s, who is calling the girls individually to invite them to dinner.  I’m dying when she calls LVP – apparently Lisa’s voicemail fucks with you?  But Lisa laughs in her confessional, so I couldn’t tell if she was messing with Camille or not.  Camille calls Kim and tells her to tell her sister – but also says she will call Kyle, too.  She does, and Kyle answers.  Kyle says that she has dinner already planned with a friend – would it be okay if her friend comes too? Camille says yes.

The night of the dinner, all of the girls are getting ready.  LVP is wary of Camille’s dinner party.  “Hopefully we can be civilized,” she tells us.  Kyle is getting ready, and fills in her stylist, who is surprised.  “Was she nice?” she asks.  “Very,” Kyle tells her. “She seemed genuine & sweet.”  We learn that Kyle is bringing Faye Resnick, a very good family friend. (I am so amped for this.)

Over at Camille’s, D.D., Camille’s assistant/best friend, is there.  D.D. wants to meet all the girls.  D.D. is surprised that Camille is even hosting this dinner, but is glad that it will be on her own turf.

Taylor, Adrienne and LVP all ride together, as do Kim, Kyle and Faye.

Over at Camille’s, Allison has arrived and Camille, D.D. and Allison are all chatting.

In the limo with Taylor, Adrienne and LVP, Taylor fills the other women in on the fact that Allison is a medium, and has a TV show based on her.

Back at Camille’s, Allison would like to do a toast.  “Cheers to old friends and new friends – and new friends who may end up being old friends. ” LMFAO, I am dying.  Clearly, Camille has an agenda with this dinner party, and Allison is an evil bitch.

Dinner

Taylor, Adrienne and LVP arrive first.  Allison looks the women up and down – clearly, she’s super judgmental.  She can’t wait to brag to LVP that Patricia Arquette plays her in Medium, and that she also profiles serial killers. Um, wrong person to brag to, Allison.  LVP is clearly not a murderino, LMAO.  Kyle, Kim and Faye show up next.  Kyle feels awkward, but is happy that everyone seems to be getting along.

Camille Cocktail

Everyone is drinking – they have a drink called the “Camille Cocktail”, which LVP describes as a “bowl of soup.” It’s huge, and the girls all say it’s super strong.  The drinks are flowing and everyone heads to the dining room and sits down at the table.  Allison just randomly starts talking out of her ass.  “It’s Saturday, we’re not supposed to be good.  We’re supposed to be bad in a controlled setting.”  Literally crickets – everyone’s just looking at each other like WTF?  Adrienne tells us in her confessional that she sat next to Allison and, “I thought she was strange.” Cut back to the table, and Allison is still rambling.  “I only have a brother, that’s why I like to hang out with Alpha Females.” Again, such a weird and random thing to say.  Adrienne breaks the silence by saying, “I think we should toast to that.”

Morally

Camille turns her attention to Kyle.  “How do you know Faye? Who is Faye? Why does she look so familiar?” She asks.  “Faye’s a very close family friend – she’s like a sister,” Kyle tells Camille.  Camille stops and thinks for a second.  “You know how I know her? I saw her naked in Playboy.”  Kyle looks livid, and for a moment I think she’s going to fly across the table at Camille.  LVP thinks it’s an inappropriate thing for Camille to say to her dinner guest.  Camille goes on, “You looked great.”  In her confessional, Camille says that she realized during dinner who Faye was.  “The morally corrupt Faye Resnick.  That’s who it is.”  At the table, she continues and says, “I loved your spread.”  Kyle is so not here for this. “Camille, didn’t you do Playboy?” Camille did, but she “didn’t pose naked.”  She justifies it by saying she was in her early 20’s.  In her confessional she tells us, “I didn’t just come off of a big murder trial that involved my best friend.  I don’t understand those kinds of people and I don’t want to associate with it.”  Kyle, in her confessional, tells us, “Those who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, and she just threw a big boulder.”

e cig.png

Tensions are high, and it’s already awkward enough without Allison pulling out her e-cig.  (She’s ahead of her time, LMAO.)  The girls are all impersonating her in their confessionals – Kyle compares her to Jack Nicholson in The Shining.

LVP is the first to bring up anything medium related.  She wants to know if Allison can feel people around them at the moment who have passed. Allison says she tells spirit to take a backseat, because everyone at the table is who she wants to focus on.  Camille is annoyed, and says that Allison is here as a guest, and doesn’t have to “perform.”  LVP keeps going – “Can’t you do something? Is my Grandmother here?” (LMAO.) “I hate to say it,” Allison says, annoyed, “But we’re having a girls night, and I’m off the clock.”  Kyle sticks up for Lisa and says, “We’re just curious.”  At this point, it’s obvious that Allison is sloshed, and Camille reaches for her cocktail to take it away from her.

Fulfill.jpg

Kyle whispers to Faye at the end of the table, “She’s off the clock, so should I whip out my credit card and be like, ‘Can I ask you a question now?'” Faye decides to ask a question, and Allison replies, “Don’t tempt me.” Kyle is like, “What does that mean, ‘Don’t tempt me?'” Allison simply replies, “Don’t get me started.” Camille interjects and says that Allison may potentially say something the girls don’t want to hear – example, if a spouse was cheating.  Kyle asks, “Can you tell us something that’s not scary?” Allison is basically possessed by a demon at this point, and evilly says, “What I want to say to you might be irritating.”  Kyle snaps back, “I don’t care.” Allison takes that as an okay.  “Have you been married twice?”  Kyle confirms that she has.  “Oh, well that’s good.  I thought I was going to have to tell you that you were going to get divorced and get married again.”  Then she starts talking about Kyle’s husband, Mauricio.  “He will never emotionally fulfill you. Know that.”

The whole table is shook.  “As soon as the kids are bigger, you’ll have nothing in common.” Camille says that Kyle pushed for the reading.  Kyle is amused but pissed.  “Anything else?” She asks Allison.  “You’re guarded,” Allison replies.  “You talk to males more than you talk to females.” Kyle immediately shuts that down and says that’s not true.  Camille speaks up and says, “That’s me. I get along better with males because girls are very catty to me.” This comment gets everyone talking about the NY drama, which we hoped would be avoided.

Dinner Party

Camille insists that she didn’t tell Allison anything about NY – and Faye pipes up, saying she doesn’t believe that.  “If you’re as good as girlfriends as you say you are, she would’ve told you.  Kyle told me everything that happened in New York.” This pisses off Allison, who says,” You’re saying we’re not that good of girlfriends because she didn’t tell me?” To which Faye clap backs, “My psychic abilities tell me no.” I am DEAD.

Allison sticks up for Camille, saying she didn’t have to tell her, because she can fight her own battles.  Camille jumps in and asks, “Is that why you came Faye? To defend Kyle?” Kim is literally bugging out in her seat.  Faye says that’s not why she’s there, but also says, “There was an attack made on my friend.” In her confessional, Camille tells us, “Did I think it was a set up? Absolutely.” (LMAO – Camille, you set this up.  I’m dying.)

Kyle

They’re still rehashing and arguing about New York, and Kyle is getting pissed because Allison keeps chiming in, and she wasn’t even there.  She tells her to be quiet, and Allison just hurls insults at her. “You’re entirely washed up.” Like what? It’s insinuated that Allison is there to defend Camille, to which Camille says, “I invited Allison because it makes for interesting conversation.”  Kyle shoots back, “But she’s off the clock.  We’re not allowed to talk about it.”  Preach. Allison starts praising herself, which is super awkward.  LVP is disgusted by it all – she says that Allison, “The Sidekick”, was more provocative than anyone else at the table.

Faye and Allison begin to argue again.  Allison tells Faye to leave, and Faye tells Allison to leave in return.  “You have two legs, the last time we checked,” Allison snaps at Faye.  Adrienne is just mortified by this entire thing.

Kim

Out of the blue, Taylor and Kim start going at it, which doesn’t help anything.  Kyle’s like, “This is all bullshit to me!” And then Kim randomly yells at Taylor, “Go blow up your lips some more!” LMFAO like WTF? In her confessional, Taylor tells us, “The dinner table was a swirling tornado.”

Stand

Taylor is the one to shut it down. “Enough!” She screams at everyone.  For whatever reason, this works, and the ladies all stand up to leave.  Kyle says, “I don’t get it, I’ve never had problems like this with anyone in my life.” Camille, who is still sitting, says, “I don’t have a problem with you Kyle.  Well, after New York you did call me a delusional bitch.” Camille also thinks Kyle is jealous of her, which I find humorous.  Jealous of what, exactly? They legit start to rehash the NY drama again and LVP is like, “We can’t go down that road again.”  Allison really wants to give her two cents again, and Kyle’s had it. They head out.

lunatic

At the table, it’s just Camile, D.D. and Allison.  “I can tell you when she will die and what will happen to her family,” Allison says. “I love that about me.” (I’m so creeped out.)

Kim and Taylor are still fighting in the hallway, and when they make their way outside Kyle gets pissed at Kim.  Kim’s like, “Why are you mad at me!?” And Kyle says that her fighting with Taylor wasn’t helping anything, and she also felt like Kim didn’t have her back at all.  LVP tells us, “It was a few clowns short of a circus.”

Back inside, Allison is still going on. “Kyle’s a little bitch.  Kyle is the girl at our high school who made someone kill themselves.” (Jesus Christ, that is so dark.) D.D. seems mortified by this statement. Camille is angry, but not at Allison. “She came into my home and verbally assaulted me,” Camille says about Kyle.  (That’s so dramatic, but sure, Jan.)

The girls leave – poor Kim; Kyle makes her take a limo by herself because her house is “out of the way”, so she leaves alone while all of the other girls ride back together.  Adrienne says that the night was horrifying.

Camille.gif

Switching back to Camille’s house, Allison hasn’t finished her rant yet. “Kyle is an angry bitch. Know that.” She insinuates that Mauricio cheats on her with the nanny, and Camille fuels the fire by saying “It’s more than just the nanny.” She takes it back, and says, “I’m not saying he’s cheating. I’m just saying he really likes women.” God, Camille and Allison are disgusting human beings. They also call Taylor a “Sacrificial Lamb” and D.D. tells Camille that Taylor isn’t her friend. Camille agrees.

Kyle, Taylor, Adrienne, LVP and Faye decide to go to The Beverly Hills Hotel for a drink.  We leave with poor Kim in the limo alone, calling Kyle, who is ignoring her calls.

And that, my friends, is the iconic Dinner Party From Hell.

Fun Fact: Allison DuBois still does readings, in case you ever want to get read by her. LMAO.

xo

RHOD: WORST VACATION EVER

It’s Day 3 in Careyes, and the girls are all waking up from the shitshow of the night before.  Poor D’Andra is so hungover.  Ugh, her hangover gives me flashbacks to just dying in bed the day after heavy drinking.  (It’s amazing to me that she still manages to rally!)

Kam and LeeAnne are chatting on their balcony.  Kam tells LeeAnne that she almost went and slept in her bed with her the night before, but she didn’t because she thought it would start more drama, and that Stephanie would be mad.  She’s not even sure if Stephanie slept in their room, because when she woke up this morning, Steph wasn’t there.

Brandi, D’Andra, Steph and Kary are all chatting in Kary’s room, and we learn that Steph actually went to Kary’s room at like 7:30 AM and poured her heart out to her.  She was upset about the fight between Brandi and Kam – she felt like by Kam calling Brandi trash, she was actually calling her trash, too.  Steph tells us she wasn’t raised with money.  Kam’s comment doesn’t sit well with her.  And Kam also implied that Steph wasn’t a good friend to her, which bothered her as well.  We get a flashback of Steph crying to Kary in her room.

We’re switching back and forth between the two separate groups.  Kam now says to LeeAnne, “What’s the purpose of having new roommates if we don’t get to know each other more?  There’s just no effort.”  Kam is acting like she literally just met Stephanie.  This is so freaking bizarre to me.  You know her!  You’ve known her for at least two years.  LMAO. I can’t.

Brandi asks D’Andra how she’s feeling.  “I don’t remember much,” D admits.  “The last thing I remember is sitting next to Kameron and a napkin going flying.”  Steph asks Brandi if her and Kameron are good, and Brandi says that she hasn’t talked to her yet.  Meanwhile, Kameron is telling LeeAnne that prior to the fight, she thought everything was good.  She doesn’t understand why it was so taboo to say that she felt the group could be “cliquey” at times.  LeeAnne tries to explain to her that Brandi felt triggered when Kam called her trash.  Kam acts like she gets it, but she doesn’t.  “But her behavior was trashy.” Sorry Kam- yours wasn’t?  You threw a napkin in her face. Brandi tells the girls that Kam has double standards, and it’s annoying.

Kary planned a beach day for the girls, so they all get ready and head out.  (D’Andra, I’m amazed at you right now.  I honestly would’ve just died in my bed the rest of the day, LMAO.)  It’s their last day and they just want to have fun.  There’s a “sweat lodge” on the beach (I’ve never heard of this before, but after watching, I’m intrigued and I want to go to one!) and D’Andra, Steph and Kary decide to do that first.  The Shaman explains that the sweat lodge is like a “womb”, and when you go in you say intentions and then you come out “reborn.”  I am so emotional watching Steph you guys.  Her journey feels similar to mine in a way (with her depression and anxiety) and I just truly feel her pain.  The girls bond while doing this, and it’s nice to watch.

LeeAnne, Brandi, and Kam are all hanging out on the beach.  Kam asks LeeAnne and Brandi what time they went to bed the night before, and Brandi replies, “2:30.”  Kam admits that she couldn’t sleep.  Brandi asks, “Why couldn’t you sleep? Because of us?” Kam says yes, so Brandi asks her if she wants to go talk.  Kam agrees, and the two girls go off to the side to have a private conversation.  This pisses off LeeAnne.  Brandi and Kameron make peace with each other.  It starts off a little rocky, and when LeeAnne sees Kameron crying, she makes her way over.  “Can we please just finish our conversation?” Brandi asks.  LeeAnne is like, “No.  Last night I tried to have a conversation and I was told to stay at the table, do you remember that?” LMAO LeeAnne, you weren’t told that by Brandi though, you were told that by D’Andra.  Why are you taking it out on her?  LeeAnne goes back to her beach chair, and is just muttering things to herself.  “Fucking dumb.”  I’m LOLing.  Brandi and Kameron actually truly do make peace, and it’s nice.  LeeAnne, still talking to herself, says, “This is the worst trip ever, and I got a flesh eating bacteria the last time I was in Mexico.”  I am done LMFAO.

When Kameron and Brandi go back to join LeeAnne, LeeAnne immediately gets up and leaves and takes a walk on the beach.  Brandi calls it – she’s mad because she was talking to Kameron.  “I’m sure she understands that we were having a private conversation,” Kam says.  Brandi is like, “She doesn’t.”  Steph, Kary and D’Andra come back from the sweat lodge, and rave about how great it was.  Kam and Brandi decide that they are going to do it, too.  “Where’s LeeAnne?” Kary asks.  Kam says she doesn’t know – she went for a walk but she doesn’t know where she is now.  She decides not to go look for her because she thinks she needs space.  Kam and Brandi head to the sweat lodge, while D’Andra, Steph and Kary now chill at the beach.

LeeAnne comes back, and the girls ask her what’s up.  LeeAnne admits that she felt left out because Brandi pulled aside Kam to talk.  (Dramatic. So dramatic.)  Steph feels like LeeAnne isolates herself – maybe not on purpose, but it still happens nonetheless.  LeeAnne says that she realizes she’s her own worst enemy.

The girls head back to the house, and their getting ready for their last dinner in Careyes.  Kam and Brandi decide to play a harmless prank on the girls – they put flour in Kary’s blowdryer.  It was cute and funny, and I honestly love when the girls are like this and getting along.

In the van on the way to dinner, LeeAnne brings up the fact that she felt left out by Brandi.  In Brandi’s confessional, she tells us that she thinks LeeAnne is jealous that she made up with Kameron – which I totally agree with.  Brandi gets upset in the van, but they arrive at dinner, and it’s dropped – for now.

The girls are all chatting at the table, and Kary mentions how Stephanie chatted with her earlier that morning.  For whatever reason, that pisses off Kameron, and she’s now feeling some type of way toward Stephanie.  It’s also awkward between Brandi and LeeAnne, so Brandi asks LeeAnne if she wants to talk, and they leave the table and go for a walk on the beach to clear things up.  Kary, who is forever toasting to everything, toasts to the trip and then says that Kameron is so fun.  Stephanie agrees, and Kam stops her.  “Stephanie, stop.  You say I’m so much fun, but I don’t feel like some of you guys have tried to get to know me.”  In her confessional, she tells us she doesn’t feel like Brandi and Steph have tried to get to know her at all.  Ummmm, what? Kam is acting like she’s the new girl.  WTF is she talking about?

On the beach, Brandi and LeeAnne are trying to hash it out.  Brandi is being (brutally) honest.  She says she doesn’t feel like LeeAnne has been listening to her, or anyone.  And that she brings up her past to get attention.  LeeAnne is like, “You think I want pity?” Brandi doesn’t want to answer.  “I don’t want to fight with you, LeeAnne.”  LeeAnne won’t let it go, and Brandi finally caves and admits that yes, she believes LeeAnne wants pity from what she went through in her past.  She thinks she lives in the past, which really pisses LeeAnne off.  Brandi doesn’t get it – she’s gone through some shit too, but she doesn’t bring it up the way LeeAnne does.  The girls are all watching from the table, and they can’t tell how things are going, because both girls are passionate about their feelings.  Steph finally gets up and intervenes.  “Do you guys still need more time to talk?”  Brandi is crying at this point, and she says she doesn’t think LeeAnne is actually going to hear her.  Steph and Brandi go sit by the water, and LeeAnne comes back to the table.

LeeAnne fills the girls in on her conversation with Brandi, and Kary tells us in her confessional that she thinks LeeAnne is just being a big baby and she needs to shut up.  Somehow, LeeAnne also brings up that she’s kind of hurt that the focus of the trip has been on D’Andra’s 50th birthday, even though “that was like two weeks ago” and LeeAnne has a huge event coming up that no one has talked about.  D’Andra is annoyed and snaps, “I wouldn’t know about that because I haven’t been invited to that event.”  LeeAnne tells us in her confessional that she doesn’t understand why D’Andra would want to be invited, since she tried to break her and Rich apart.  (If you feel that way, why are you even bringing it up then? I’m confused.)  Steph comes back to the table (Brandi is still sitting by the water) and basically asks LeeAnne what went wrong.  LeeAnne says that when she and Brandi are surface level, they can be fine.  But when they are “intimate”, that’s when things go wrong.  Brandi comes back to the table, and we end on the weirdest note – all of the girls are kind of fine?

What a strange episode!  This group is so friggin dysfunctional, LMAO.  But I love it.

Until next week!

 

RHOD S4: DONDE ESTA MARGARITA!?

Hi guys! I missed everyone last week.  Sorry I was MIA – I’ve literally been sick for three weeks, and I’m almost finished with my second round of antibiotics.  I was too sick to blog Dallas, but I’m back and I’m so ready to talk about this week’s craziness with you all! I have so many feels about this episode, so let’s just get right into it. 

We start off all around Dallas, as usual, getting little snippets of what the girls are up to.  (I seriously just love Bruin.  What a cutie!)  But we land at Hollman Lockers, Travis’s company, where he was supposed to meet with D’Andra that morning to go over her business with her. Travis FaceTimes with Steph to let her know that it’s now 9:10 AM, and D’Andra never showed up for her 8:00 AM meeting.  “Oh yeah,” Steph starts off nervously, “I got a text from D’Andra at like 1:30 this morning that she had to cancel.”  Travis asks Stephanie to read the text, so she does.  I don’t’ know what she said verbatim, but she literally cancelled her meeting because she had a “hair emergency” and didn’t leave the salon until 1:30 AM.  I am so appalled by this.  That is beyond unprofessional, not to mention extremely rude, since Travis is doing her a favor.  Travis isn’t happy, either.  He cleared his entire morning schedule for her.  “You show up and you get the job done,” Travis says.  I am dying though when Steph is like, “Oh stop it, you’re not Beyonce.”  LMAO.  Before hanging up with Travis, she tells him to be nice to her friend.  In her confessional, she tells us that Travis can be very aggressive with work, which is great for their bank account, but not always so great when it comes to friendships.  She calls him “Tramaya Carey” and I’m dead.  Travis calls D’Andra, who doesn’t answer.  He leaves her a voicemail, and honestly, I thought he did it very eloquently.  He definitely expressed that he was upset, and that he thinks her behavior was unprofessional and disrespectful, but he said it in a very kind way.  (Also, LOLing at the “Happy Birthday, bye!” comment at the end of the phone call.)

 

Now we are with LeeAnne and Steve (her wedding planner) at Nardos, where she is looking for a wedding dress.  LeeAnne literally has 7 weeks until her wedding – I have genuine anxiety she waited this long to find a dress! She’s talking with the owner (dress maker, whatever) and she asks LeeAnne her budget.  LeeAnne doesn’t give her one, so she asks, “$10,000?” Christ, that is such a high, ridiculous, number.  LeeAnne’s face gives away her silent “no”, so she counters, “$7,000?” Again, I think anything over $5,000 is over the top.  (I don’t even want to spend $5,000, but if I absolutely fell in love with a dress, I think that would be my ultimate max.)  LeeAnne isn’t happy with $7,000, either, so Steve steps in.  This scene made me so uncomfortable.  Steve basically says that LeeAnne hates asking for stuff, but she’s done so much for other people that people are trying to help her out with her wedding.  He’s basically asking for a free dress without actually having to use those words.  And surprisingly, the owner agrees.  She says she would be honored to make LeeAnne’s dress for her.  For free.  Hey, whatever works, right?

Over at Steph’s, she’s meeting with her Life Coach, Carmen.  Steph reveals to Carmen that for the past 7-8 months, she hasn’t felt great.  She doesn’t feel centered, she’s very anxious, and she just feels like she’s all around struggling.  She talks about how she shared her past with us viewers last season – her struggle with anxiety and depression, and how she did try to take her own life.  When it originally came out, she said she felt really great, like a weight had been lifted off of her shoulders.  However, she got a lot of messages from fans reaching out – but many of them were suicidal, and Stephanie was worried that she couldn’t help everyone.  It stressed her out, and she began to spiral.  She decided to go back on anti-depressants, and she viewed this as a setback.  I totally understand Stephanie and where she is coming from.  As someone who takes anti-depressants, I get the feeling of shame that comes with it.  Even though I know I shouldn’t feel any shame for needing the help, and I would never shame anyone else for taking medication, I can’t help but feel a certain way about actually taking them myself.  Stephanie also speaks about her issues with her self-esteem – starting as early as kindergarten for her.  Carmen asks Stephanie what she would say to that little girl today, and Stephsays, “You’re perfect just the way you are.  You are enough.” The whole scene makes me emotional.  I’ve never felt like I related to a housewife (or anyone on TV, actually) like I do with Stephanie.  Steph’s excited to go to Mexico with the girls, so she can have some fun and get out of her own head.

At D’Andra and Jeremy’s, D’Andra is awake, and Jeremy is doing laundry.  Jeremy asks D’Andra if she has called Travis back yet – she hasn’t.  (D, what are you doing girl!?)  D’Andra is embarrassed and feels like Travis isn’t going to understand her reasoning for missing the meeting.  “To be honest, I don’t understand it either,” Jeremy says.  I don’t understand it either, and I’m a woman who has had hair mishaps.  Jeremy gives D’Andra solid advice – call Travis, and just own it.  “You fucked up,” he tells her.  D’Andra finally musters up the courage to call Travis back.  (I was so anxious when this was going on!)  She is extremely apologetic, she owns it all, and Travis is super understanding and sweet.  They agree to meet again because Travis is willing to give her another chance.  

All of the girls are getting ready to go to Mexico. They meet up at the airport, and LOL @ Kameron with her zillion bags.  (I honestly cannot talk, I do the same thing for a weekend trip.  It’s an anxiety thing for me though.)  They land in Puerta Vallerta and then they have a two hour drive to Kary’s house in Careyes.  They start drinking on the bus, and then they discuss their rooming situation.  Kary puts all of the girl’s names in a hat, and whoever you pick is whoever you’re rooming with.  LeeAnne is already not feeling this.  “You have 7 bedrooms,” she says.  “That’s ridiculous.”  Also, no one wants to room with D’Andra, because she’s a mess.  LMAO.  Kary ends up getting LeeAnne as a roommate, and Steph gets Kameron, which leaves Brandi and D’Andra.  “I think I did not win the lottery on this one,” Brandi tells us.  LMAO.  The girls stop to use a restroom, and they’re all freaked out because that bathroom was disgusting AF.  After what seems like forever, they finally arrive at Kary’s.  OMG – what a beautiful house! So, so, gorgeous.  They get out of the van and a full staff is ready to greet them with Margaritas.  Perfect.

Kary is giving the girls a tour of the house, and I will say that I think LeeAnne is being super rude about having to room with Kary.  However, when we see Kary’s bedroom and realize that they have to share a bed, I am with LeeAnne on this 100%.  I am grown, adult woman.  I am not sharing a bed with anyone, especially someone I’m not even close with.  That’s just weird.  Also, I’m not really here for the way everyone was forced to pick names from a hat and share rooms.  Can’t you just sleep with whoever you would like to?  I mean, I get it – it’s Kary’shouse, and you need to be respectful to the host.  And I think sharing rooms is fine, too.  But sharing a bed? That’s where I draw the line.  As Kary shows the girls the rest of the house, LeeAnne is still being really negative.  At first, I was kind of like, WTF? It took me the whole episode to realize that LeeAnnewas upset about the room situation from the very beginning.  

They walk down the stairs onto a porch/balcony area, and LeeAnne is making remarks about everything.  “There are so many stairs. It’s like stair master on crack.”  On the way down, LeeAnne sees a free room with a king sized bed, and she makes the executive decision that that is where is she staying.  LMAO. Kary is annoyed.  The girls are all sitting on hammocks, and in the distance is a bridge that Kary wants to take them to.  To be fair, I wouldn’t go across that bridge.  It literally looks like it will fall apart at any given moment.  LeeAnne doesn’t want to go across it, and Kary gets annoyed by that, too.  And now I’m starting to get annoyed with Kary, because just because it’s your house and you’re the host, that doesn’t mean you can force everyone to do exactly what you want. If someone feels uncomfortable walking across this rickety bridge, they don’t have to.  She’s being so dramatic about it.  On the flip side, LeeAnne is being a brat at this point, and Kary asks her, “Are you always this negative about everything in your life?”  LeeAnne snaps back that she’s not being negative, and Karycounters, “You’ve been complaining since we got here.”  We then get a montage of LeeAnne complaining since the van ride. 

The girls all go off to their own rooms, and we go with Brandi and D’Andra to theirs.  D’Andra is disappointed that LeeAnne couldn’t just go where she was originally assigned.  In a sense, I agree with D’Andra – but D’Andra, you also didn’t get paired to share a bed with someone.  So it’s not really the same. 

Kam goes to check on LeeAnne.  She tells her that she doesn’t like that she feels like LeeAnne is being “stereotyped.”  I’m not sure if I agree with that.  LeeAnne asks Kam if she thinks she was being negative, and Kameron says no.  Kameron thinks LeeAnne is “misunderstood” in this group, and LeeAnne is offended because she feels attacked by Kary.

Meanwhile, Kary and Stephanie are chatting.  Kary feels like LeeAnne is being rude.  She wanted to get to know LeeAnne better, but she doesn’t think LeeAnne feels the same way.  It’s weird – I agreed with Kary at first, but the more I watched, the more I don’t believe that Kary was being genuine.  Something is off.

Later, the girls are all having dinner together.  They’re all casually chatting – we learn that D’Andra had once dated Eduardo’s brother or cousin? I can’t remember who he was, but he was friends with Eduardo in some aspect. His name was Guillermo.  Kary talks about her jewelry line, and Kam talks about Sparkle Dog.  They all talk about prenups– all of the girls have them, except for LeeAnne and Rich, and Brandi and Brian.  Midway through dinner, Brandi gets up, and she doesn’t come back.  Steph goes to check on her, and she’s passing out in her bed, LOL.  Everything is normal up until now, but if you thought we were going to have a nice, calm dinner, you’re sadly mistaken.

Honestly, I feel like Kary starts it.  She asks LeeAnne, “You never wanted babies?” UGH, for real? This question is beyond inappropriate.  What if LeeAnne did want babies, but had fertility issues? That’s so insensitive.  Or maybe, she just didn’t want to have children – and that’s okay.  Not everyone has to be a mother, and we shouldn’t shame women for not wanting kids.  The question is just wrong all around and I’m so annoyed she asked it.  Also – D’Andra doesn’t have children, how come you’re not calling her out? While I’m Team LeeAnne right now because I’m not here for Kary calling her out – I am NOT Team LeeAnne when I hear her response.  LeeAnne talks about how she was molested as a child, and because of her bad childhood she would never bring kids into this world.  It’s uncomfortable, but I do think she’s being honest.  However, she takes it way too fucking far when starts to talk about suicide.  She talks about how she’s tried to kill herself three times, and, “if given the opportunity, I would probably try again tonight.”  LeeAnne, that is so not okay.  If she was being genuine with this topic, I would feel so much differently.  But I agree with Stephanie – LeeAnnewas purposely trying to shut this conversation down.  And she succeeded by making everyone beyond uncomfortable.  LeeAnne talking about suicide so nonchalantly and cavalierly is disgusting to me.  LeeAnne has been suicidal – she knows better.  Suicide is not a joke, and it’s not something to be taken lightly.  I’m appalled that she would go here.  Steph is upset by the convo, and she decides to go to bed.  The other ladies follow suit.

Next week looks even more intense – I am not here for Kameron throwing her napkin at Brandi! – but I’m excited to see what’s to come.

What’d you guys think of this episode!? Sorry for the super long post – I told you, I had lots of thoughts on this one! LOL.

Until next week….

RHOD S4: OF FRIENDS & FRENEMIES

Dallas is back y’all! I’ve been waiting for this moment since the reunion ended! 🤗 Dallas is easily my fav housewife franchise & I absolutely love these ladies. I couldn’t be more excited for this!

We start off all around Dallas. We briefly catch our new cast member, Kary. (It makes me LOL that we traded a Cary for a Kary.)

Kary seems super cute and fun though, and I’m totally here for it.

Side note: Dying when we see Kam take her dog to get a “pawdicure.” 😂 So Kameron.

LeeAnne meets up with her wedding planner and event planner to go over more details for her wedding. It’s only 7 weeks away! LeeAnne tells us that she and Rich are still together, are very happy, very much in love, and are most definitely still getting married. Prashe, LeeAnne’s event planner, asks LeeAnne if D’Andra is invited to her wedding. Sadly, we learn that L & D are still not speaking. LeeAnne hasn’t spoken to D’Andra since D apologized at the reunion, which was three months earlier. She feels like D should be the one to reach out. “You imploded this friendship, not me,” LeeAnne tells us in her confessional. While I don’t agree with that statement at all, I have to say that I’m obsessed with L’s confessional look. So gorgeous. Anyway.

Over at D’Andra’s, D’Andra and Jeremy are talking about her company, and how it’s not doing so well. After speaking with Esther, the accountant, D’Andra learned that the company was in such poor shape that she only has three months to turn it around, or she’s going to have to close the doors. D’Andra had no idea that the business was in financial dismay when her mom signed it over to her last season. She’s wondering if Momma Dee set her up to fail. I can’t deny that this looks sketchy AF, but I also cannot believe Momma Dee would do that to D’Andra. D’Andra took a salary cut, and although she has a trust, she can’t touch it. (This honestly gives me anxiety. Sorry Gretch, I can’t imagine you having control over my finances.) D’Andra wants Jeremy’s help, and of course he’s willing to help her.

We’re at Steph’s, and her and Travis are being super cute and silly together. Steph tells us that she and Travis are in a really good place. They sit down and start talking, and Steph fills him in on what she’s been up to. She had lunch with D’Andra, and she tells Travis that D’s 50th Birthday is next week. Steph asked D’Andra if she felt like she was going through a midlife crisis, because she feels like Travis is. (Travis will be turning 50 in a few months.) Steph also thinks Travis should talk to D’Andra and give her advice about her company. Steph sees a similarity in the situation because Travis took over his father’s company and increased the profits greatly. Travis is willing to help D’Andra out. Steph also tells him that they talked about LeeAnne. Stephanie wants to have a “Friend-ervention.” She thinks LeeAnne and D’Andra can rekindle their friendship. Travis agrees – they just need a Xanax, some wine, and need to talk it out. LOL.

We’re catching up with Brandi, and I’m dying. Her children literally kill me – Brooklyn is a riot. 😂 We learn that Bruin’s adoption is legally final. I am so happy for their family! And could Bruin get any cuter? Brandi tells us that Brooklyn is ten, and she (meaning Brandi) currently can’t do anything right in her daughters eyes. Brooklyn makes a face, and Brandi asks her, “What’re you doing, making yourself look like a clown?” Brooklyn responds, “I’m making myself look like you.” I’m dead. 💀

D’Andra and Momma Dee are at D’Andra’s Dads grave. It’s been six years since he passed. D’Andra said her dad was more of the nurturing parent. D’Andra brings up what’s going on with the business, and she’s thinking about what her dad would do if he was in her position. Momma Dee tells her that he would tell her to “Follow your heart.” This scene was a little bit confusing to me though. Basically, Momma Dee is fine with giving D’Andra money for the company – or she’s fine with not taking the $60,000 that was in the stipulation when she gave D the company. (I am laughing when Momma Dee says, “Do you think the S on my head stands for stupid? No, it stands for Simmons.”) D’Andra feels like her mother is playing a game – she thinks it’s odd that Momma Dee was opposed to helping her before but is totally fine with it now. But D’Andra is going along with it, because she doesn’t want to do anything to piss off her mom and potentially have her trust money in jeopardy. One of the producers asks if D’Andra would ever give up access to her trust if it meant Momma Dee would no longer have financial control over her. D’Andra says no – she’s done this for 50 years, she’s not giving it up now. Valid point.

Kameron is packing – she’s going on a cruise with her family for spring break. Steph calls her, and asks her what she’s doing on Saturday – she’s having a get together and wanted to invite her. Steph fills her in on her plan to get LeeAnne and D’Andra to become friends again. Kam tells Steph about her spring break plans. When she hangs up, she tells us she has “No fomo about missing this.” (Lmao, love that she gets fomo wrong. 🤦🏼‍♀️) Kam also immediately calls LeeAnne. She doesn’t answer, so Kam leaves her a message to “warn her” that D’Andra will be at Stephanie’s. Stir that pot, Kameron.

We get to meet Kary! She’s over at D’Andra’s. We learn that Kary met Steph and Brandi the night before – all four girls went out and had a good time. Kary asks D’Andra what she’s doing tonight – and D tells her how she’s going to Stephanie’s, and that LeeAnne will be there. D’Andra is still hurt from the comments that LeeAnne made the year before about D’Andra’s financial situation. Kary tells us that she formed her own opinion of LeeAnne because of Cary Deuber – she’s good friends with her and doesn’t like what she said about Mark in the past. (I get this, but Cary moved on from those comments, so I don’t think Kary should hold that against LeeAnne.)

Later on, we’re over at Kary’s, who is also packing for spring break. She’s going away with her 18 year old daughter, Olivia. (How is Kary old enough to have an 18 year old!?) Kary is married – her second marriage. She has two kids with her husband, and three with her ex.

It’s Friendervention time, and I have anxiety. Brandi is first to arrive, and she tells us that she and LeeAnne are actually in a good place. They put all the bullshit aside and decided to move on. D’Andra is coming in optimistic, where LeeAnne seems to have a more pessimistic point of view when it comes to her friendship with D. LeeAnne tells her that she still has a lot of hurt. “I said I was sorry,” D’Andra says. She goes on to say that she thought they were okay at the reunion, but after the reunion D’Andra got a text from Rich about how Jeremy was cheating on her with “Pretty Girl Jessica.” (Whoever the fuck that is. And this is such BS.) LeeAnne isn’t phased by this. She gets why Rich did what he did. “You accused him of cheating.” “I asked him a question,” D’Andra retorts. D’Andra also thinks it’s ridiculous that LeeAnne is being so hard on her, when she made the same accusations about Mark Deuber two years ago. LeeAnne says she still feels bad about that.

Then she randomly comes for D’Andra and says that she can tell by her posture and her stance that D’Andra is “so much better” than her. D’Andra looks blindsided. (I honestly was too.) “You always have to go below the belt,” D says. “I’m sitting here listening to you.” Brandi interjects, which I think helps. I also think LeeAnne’s defense mechanism is to be guarded because she is hurt. They both kind of come around though. D’Andra asks her what she needs to do for LeeAnne to feel comfortable around her, and LeeAnne replies, “Time.” Totally honest answer. They both seem like they’re ready to move forward – maybe D’Andra a little bit more, but I have hope for a future friendship. They toast to the future, and that ends the premiere of season 4.

What’d you guys think!? I’m loving Dallas, and I’m excited to see what’s to come. Next week is D’Andra’s birthday – and she’s having a roast! (Worst idea ever. 🤦🏼‍♀️)

Until next week!
