RHOBH: HURRICANE CAMILLE

We start out at Kyle’s, and Kim comes over. Kim seems to be doing wonderful and I’m beyond happy for her.  She’s loving life as a Grandma.  Kim and Kyle talk about how Alexia recently got a job at The Agency, and she loves it. Kyle invites Kim to The Agency’s Party – but she does warn her, Lisa Rinna will be there.  Kim says she probably can’t go.  This part is weird to me – they act like the apology between Kim and Rinna never occurred?  Kim tells us that her and Rinna “will never be friends”, but it would be nice if they could be civil. Whatever.

Over at Dorit and PK’s, Dorit fills in PK on what Camille said during that horrible dinner. (Also, LMAO at Dorit just causally riding around on that trike.)  Dorit says that Camille is two-faced.  PK confirms what Dorit said at dinner – he filed for bankruptcy ten years ago, so what does that have to do with anything now?  Dorit also brings up the Beverly Beach lawsuit. She says that because it’s ongoing, she can’t talk about it, and Camille knows this.  Interesting.  Dorit brings up The Agency party – unfortunately, PK can’t attend –his daughter, Atlanta, is in town, and he’s spending the night with her.  Dorit doesn’t want to see Camille and wishes he could go with her, but she understands why he can’t.

It’s the night of the party, and we catch glimpses of all of the girls getting ready and heading out. Dorit rides with Denise and Aaron, and you guys – I just love Aaron.  Favorite house-husband of all time.

Erika and Rinna show up together, and they’re both wearing wigs. I love these  two.

Camille arrives with her posse – Kimber, and Rose. (Is Kimber the new DeeDee? I think so.)  Camille comes in guns blazing.  After she really thought about what went down at dinner the other night, she decided that it was bullshit.  She’s totally disappointed in the girl’s behavior and their actions.  (LMAO, what about your behavior and your actions, Camille?)  She walks into the room and says to Kimber and Rose, “I feel like I’m back in high school with these bitches.”  She’s tired of being on the chopping block, and thinks that the ladies are “heartless.” Oh, please! Give me a break, Camille.

Camille and Kyle greet each other, and Camille instantly goes in on her. Teddi tries to step in, and of course Camille is not having that.  She literally puts her hand in Teddi’s face and says, “Shut it down, Teddi!” LMFAO.  Camille is on another level.  Teddi walks away, and she stops and fills in Erika and Rinna on what was going on.  Meanwhile, Denise, Aaron and Dorit arrive.

Rinna is confused by Camille’s sudden change of mood. After Dorit’s dinner, Camille showed remorse for her behavior.  (We even see a flashback of that, which is surprising.)  Rinna decides to confront Camille.  “Camille, can we have a chat with you?” Camille is so aggressive, I am dying.  “No.” Rinna still tries to proceed with having a conversation with her.  Camille tells her that the way the girls treated her, just because she was nice to LVP, is bullshit.  “Let’s figure out who the mean girl really is,” Camille says, getting in Rinna’s face.

Camille books it to the bathroom, and Denise follows her. Denise is like, “Let’s talk it out.”  Camille is not having any of this.  “I like you Denise,” she says, but basically tells her to stay out of it.  Denise isn’t staying out of it, though.  “You fucked up,” she tells her. “You owe Dorit an apology.” Denise thinks what Camille did to Dorit is unacceptable.  Surprisingly, Camille takes responsibility for this, and does say she wants to apologize to Dorit.

Mauricio and Kyle are giving their speech, and everyone is listening – except for Camille and Denise, who are literally still arguing. LMAO. Dorit turns around and is like, “Can you please stop?  He’s giving a speech.” 

The girls shut up, and once the speech is over, Camille pulls Dorit aside.  “Can I talk to you? I want to apologize.”  She tells her that she’s so sorry.  Dorit clearly doesn’t trust Camille, but she just lets her apologize.

I honestly don’t even know how Teddi ends up confronting Camille again, but she does. She’s pissed that she was so rude to her and doesn’t appreciate the way she talked down to her.  Camille literally doesn’t give a single fuck.  “Teddi, you have been so annoying to me,” she says.  Then she randomly brings up her daughter, Mason, and how Mason told her that Teddi snubbed her at the airport. Teddi adamantly denies that, which makes Camille even angrier, because her daughter didn’t make it up. 

Denise sticks up for Teddi, and Camille tells Denise to “back off.”  Denise is pissed and tells her, “You fucking back off!”  Denise tells us, “I can handle drama, enough is enough!”

Camille leaves, and the party is somewhat normal after that. Kyle brought wine from France so Denise could have some, and they all cheers.

Six months later….

Kyle has the girls over for lunch – minus LVP and Camille.

We learn that Camille has switched over to LVP’s side – we catch a flashback of her telling LVP that she felt like she was the target after she (LVP) left the group.

Meanwhile, the girls are all chatting. They talk about how LVP just opened up a new restaurant at Cesar’s Palace in Vegas, and Camille was in attendance.  Rinna tells us she actually ran into LVP in a parking garage.  She said she was trying to get money in her purse and her nails were wet, so Rinna asked her if she needed money. (LMAO, only Rinna.)  LVP declined, saying, “No! And even if I did need any, I wouldn’t take it from you.”  Kyle also fills us in on how she bumped into LVP at Neiman Marcus.  They had a much more civilized convo.  Kyle apologized for everything, and told her she wished it didn’t end up the way it was.  Lisa told Kyle she couldn’t get over the fact that she called her a liar, and Kyle says she didn’t call her a liar, that was what LVP took away from their conversation.  (Kyle, you called her liar.)  Kyle’s sad, because she knows that nothing will change, but she also feels a sense of relief, having seen her and having that closure. Kyle feels as though she was more invested in their friendship then LVP was.

Honestly, this group of girls do seem very close. Erika tells us she feels very close with this group.  We talk a little bit about what they’re doing at the end.  Denise moved to Brentwood, so I’m happy she found a home.  Rinna’s daughter, Amelia, is starting college in the fall.  Teddi is staying busy with her business.  Dorit is looking for a new home,  and we also learn Beverly Beach is doing well.  And Kyle says that she just doesn’t want any enemies.

Lastly we get LVP – she tells us she’s in a different place. “Out with the old and in with new.”

We leave off with the girls cheers-ing – “The future is ours!”

It’s weird, because I feel like a lot went down this season – but I also feel like nothing went down this season, too. My opinions on cast members have changed drastically from the beginning.  I really wasn’t a fan of Dorit when we started the season, but she’s one of my favs now.  I also really loved Camille in the beginning, until Season 1 Camille reared her ugly head.  I’m so over her and her victim mentality.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens next season….LVP has already said she won’t be returning, and I’d be shocked if Camille came back since she burned her bridges with everyone. Who will they cast?

In the meantime, we still have the reunion to look forward to.

Until next season…..

RHOBH: SUN & SHADE IN THE BAHAMAS

We’re in The Bahamas, at Baha Mar. What a gorgeous resort. The girls are all heading to their rooms, and they plan on meeting at Dorit’s suite later that night to have drinks on her balcony.

LVP is rooming with Dorit after all. They’re out on the balcony talking to each other, when Dorit asks, “Are you happy to be good friends with me?” Lisa loves to tease Dorit, and responds, “Yes, because right now I’m reaping the benefits.” Dorit doesn’t find this funny. She’s paranoid that LVP is holding a grudge about Puppy Gate (that’s what I’m calling this from now on) and I can’t say her paranoia is misplaced.

Teddi & Kyle are chatting in their room that they’re sharing. Teddi shares with Kyle that she’s getting along with Dorit better. Jagger & Cruise (Teddi & Dorit’s children) have bonded, and they’ve both set their own differences aside for their kids.

Back over on Dorit’s balcony, she tells us & Lisa that she’s so glad Lisa came on the trip, and she’s happy that they can connect. I do believe Dorit does feel terrible about Puppy Gate, and she just wants things to go back to normal with LVP.

Switching back over to Teddi & Kyle – they discuss the jabs LVP was throwing towards Dorit on the PJ, and how they believe Dorit’s feelings were hurt. Neither of them believe LVP is over Puppy Gate.

The Girls are all getting ready for drinks, and Rinna is the first to arrive at Dorit & LVP’s suite.

Can I just say I fucking love Denise? These bitches faces when she walks in her white tank & white shorts – so snobby! Except for Camille, who is such a sweetheart. (“I love your shorts!”) I’m LOLing when Denise tells us, “I packed the wrong shit, I learned that quickly.” I totally get where she’s coming from – you’re having drinks on a balcony with the girls. I would’ve worn cute pajamas, but that’s just me. 🤷🏼‍♀️

Kyle & LVP are talking off to the side, and LVP is emotional when she tells Kyle that she should make up with her sisters. We learn that Kyle & Kim are okay, but Kyle & Kathy are not. Rinna joins them, and LVP tells them both that Elvis, her butler, is going to bring his cat to her room. Kyle comments and says, “Maybe that’s why Dorit had an allergic reaction, is she allergic to cats?” (Side note: earlier in the episode, Dorit apparently had an allergic reaction to something, we don’t know what. She took Benadryl & was fine.) Lisa Vanderpump says, “I don’t know, we should find out.” Then fucking Kyle blurts out, “Maybe she’s allergic to dogs.” I literally yelled ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME KYLE at the tv screen at this point. Cause that wasn’t premeditated at all! (Insert eye roll.) Rinna comments how it just got really quiet, and wants to know what’s going on. LVP is keeping quiet, but Kyle can’t let it go. “Are you still mad at her?” Kyle asks LVP, referring to Dorit. Rinna is completely in the dark, or at least she’s pretending to be. They end the conversation and join the other girls.

Kyle – WTF is your end game here?

The next morning, Kyle & Teddi are in their room and they’re talking about the night before. Kyle tells Teddi that “Dorit’s dog came up” and it’s like, yes, Lucy did come up – because of you. Rinna joins them, and then they both fill her in on the entire Puppy Gate scandal.

I honestly do get what Rinna was saying – I do believe LVP was trying to set up Teddi &/or Kyle. I think she’s still pissed at Dorit, and wanted a way to get this out there without having to dirty her own hands. The entire situation at Vanderpump Dogs the day Teddi & Kyle visited was bizarre. If LVP didn’t want it talked about, I guarantee you it wouldn’t have been brought up. I actually think LVP had John Blizzard tell Teddi via text, knowing she could use it against her later. However, I don’t think Kyle is innocent in all of this – she was intent on talking about it.

The girls boat off to some private island, and they’re all having a blast. LVP & Denise are getting massages and bonding over the fact that they both adopted children, which was a heartwarming moment. The rest of the girls are swimming and drinking and just having a good time.

Rinna really came to play this season. The girls all sit down for lunch, and Rinna tells the group that Dorit brought them all on the trip to address anything that needs to be addressed. (Stir that pot Lisa.) She wants the girls to go around the table and say who has an issue about what, etc. (Lmao, only Rinna.) She tells us, “It opens up conversations.” To which Camille replies, “Or it could open up Pandora’s Box.” Camille still goes along with it though, and she brings up the fact that she had issues with Dorit last year (does “Camille you’re a stupid cunt” ring a bell?) but she’s moved past that and she’s enjoying her time and thanks Dorit for inviting her.

Dorit brings up the issues she’s had with Teddi, and how they’re both working on moving past it and how their sons became fast friends.

Erika has nothing to say, she’s good, and then it’s over to LVP. She tells us it’s just nice to be amongst friends….but-”

If she’s being absolutely honest, she has to address the fact that Erika didn’t call her when her brother passed, she sent a sympathy card/note. This is beyond ridiculous. Erika & LVP are NOT friends. They work together and film a TV show together, and have the same group of friends. Erika was not obligated to call Lisa. A sympathy card 100% suffices. Erika is pissed at being called out, and rightfully so. She pretty much tells LVP off, and tells her to not try to make her out to be the bad guy. Lisa gets emotional, and she tells Erika she’s sorry and wants to put it behind them. They do make up, and the awkwardness disappears.

Later that night, the girls are getting ready to go to dinner. Rinna stops by Erika’s room, and they talk about what went down at lunch. Erika says she doesn’t understand what happened at the table today, and Rinna agrees. Erika pulls out her phone and shows Rinna a picture of the card she gave to LVP. “Bitch, you come with receipts!” 😂😂

The girls are at dinner at Cleo’s, and they’re all chatting and enjoying each other. (We learn that Teddi was going to be named BabyDoll LMAO, & Kyle was supposed to be a boy, so she was named after a football player.) Rinna & Dorit get up to go to the bathroom, and Kyle takes this opportunity to confront LVP.

“I’m feeling really weird about all the side convos right now about the dog.”

Erika chimes in and immediately is like, “I don’t want to know this.” Teddi says that she & Kyle didn’t want to know it either. Teddi then asks LVP if Dorit knows that they know about the situation, and LVP tells her that Dorit knows that she knows, not Kyle. Teddi looks anxious & exasperated.

Rinna & Dorit are back from the bathroom, but the conversation doesn’t stop. Teddi says that she felt anxious, because she felt like she wasn’t truthful to Dorit.

Dorit clams up and says she doesn’t want to go to a bad place.

Teddi tells her side of the story – which is the truth. Everything she says is accurate – Teddi & Kyle were at Vanderpump Dogs, and John Blizzard and John Sessa brought out Lucy.

Dorit looks absolutely horrified. Rinna tells LVP that she should’ve shut it down, and LVP shoots back, “I have 400 employees, I can’t control what they all say and do.” (Bullshit.) In LVPs confessional, she tells us that the situation wouldn’t have happened at all if Dorit handled it properly. I agree with that 100%, however, I don’t believe LVP is as innocent as she’s pretending to be.

Dorit begins to re-explain herself, and at the end of table, Denise looks confused. “I don’t even know what these bitches are fighting about.” Lmao.

The girls are all arguing their own points, and then Rinna jumps in. She turns to LVP and says, “This wouldn’t get out there if you didn’t want it to. It’s a set up.”

I can’t say I disagree with Rinna on that. LVP tells Dorit that she doesn’t believe for a second she had any ill intent, however, the dog should’ve been returned to her from the get go. LVP is not wrong.

Dorit becomes upset, and Teddi, Kyle & Rinna comfort her, while LVP asks, “Why is Dorit upset?”

LVP also says that she had no idea Teddi would be gossiping about it, which is complete bullshit. Teddi’s had enough and she storms off, leaving us with a cliff hanger.

Honestly, I’m over talking about Puppy Gate and it’s only the 3rd episode. Do I think LVP is mad at Dorit and wants to punish her? Yes. Do I think LVP tried to use Teddi and Kyle as scapegoats? Yes. Do I think Kyle wanted to get this out in the open for whatever reason during this trip? Yes. Do I think Dorit was wrong for not just giving Lucy back to Vanderpump Dogs to begin with? Yes.

However, this entire situation is so overly dramatic. I understand that Lisa is grieving, but this could’ve been shut down a long time ago. If LVP was mad at Dorit, which she clearly is, then just fucking own it! She would have every right to be mad at her. What Dorit did was wrong. Good intentions or not, Lucy still ended up at a shelter. But LVP insisted she wasn’t mad at Dorit, so in that case, stop talking about it.

What a shit show.

Next week, we see Ken has printed out texts between Teddi & John Blizzard (I think), and I’m just like shaking my head. Ken is such a chick, please give me a break.

God, this episode was utterly exhausting. My highlight was living vicariously through Erika Jayne and her 70 inch pony tail and fabulous Glam Squad.

Until next week…..

RHOBH: EAT YOUR HEART OUT

Not going to lie, I feel like this episode was totally a filler episode, which is honestly unacceptable this early on in the season. But I will say that I love Erika Jayne so much, and watching her gives me genuine joy. Anyway.

We start out with Kyle meeting LVP at Villa Rosa. They head out to Epione, where Lisa “rejuvenates her neck.” Honestly, this scene made me sad, because we know that in real time, Lisa & Kyle aren’t speaking. I feel like they truly do have a good friendship, it seems sincere to me & they always have fun together. They’re being silly; Lisa gets laughing gas before getting the fillers, and they’re just having a good time. It feels as though they’re totally good one on one, but can’t handle being friends with everyone else around.

Erika meets Rinna & Dorit for lunch. Erika orders a beer – whatever they have in a bottle, and Dorit loves this. She starts reminiscing on old times, where she did “keg handstands” when she was 16. (Isn’t it just called a keg stand? LOL.) Dorit fills Rinna in on the robbery – and somewhat of the Lucy situation. She tells Lisa that she can’t even talk about the dog situation. It’s clearly bothering her. Dorit also suggests a Girls Trip.

They talk about possible places they could go (Erika nonchalantly saying, “I think we have a place in Tahoe” is giving me life 😂) and they end up settling on The Bahamas.

Over at Denise’s, we’re learning more about her and her family. She has three daughters, Sami, who we see in this scene, Lola, and Eloise. Sami and Lola’s Dad is Charlie Sheen, and Eloise, the youngest at age 7, was adopted. Denise actually addresses that there was a rumor that Eloise was Charlie’s daughter, that he had with a hooker. She says it’s untrue. They have a beautiful house on the beach in Malibu, and Denise’s boyfriend, Aaron, also lives with them. Denise and Aaron have been together for a year.

Denise asks Sami about Homecoming – Sami says she hasn’t been asked, but she’s going if she does get asked. Denise tells her she can’t date until she’s 16, and that her father would agree with her. Sami calls her dad (Charlie) right then and there to ask him, and I love his response that he would trust her judgment about who she would go with. Denise disagrees, but we don’t talk about the conversation any further.

At Dorit’s, we watch her telling PK that she is planning a Girls Trip, and is going to invite everyone. Yes, even Teddi! Dorit says that she wants to give Teddi a chance – their arguments have all been trivial, and she’s ready to move on. PK asks if she’s going to invite LVP, to which Dorit replies, “Of course.” It’s obvious Dorit is fretting about the Lucy situation – she tells us in her confessional that she just hopes Lisa knows that she had good intentions. She wants to move forward with that situation also.

I have to say, you guys, PK was kinda sorta growing on me in this scene. I know – like WTF!? I don’t know – he just seemed really supportive of Dorit & it was nice. I’m sure I’ll change my mind next week, but for now, I’m okay with PK. 😂 (Please don’t roast me.)

Teddi & Rinna meet, and they’re going on a hike/walk. Teddi tells Lisa about a role she just played in a movie. She says that she wanted to be an actress when she was younger, but her manager told her she had to lose weight if she wanted to get a role, which crushed her. Hearing Teddi talk about her struggle with food was very relatable to me, and is probably relatable to a lot of people. Teddi said that “food was her best friend” – she was an emotional eater. I understand that feeling completely. Honestly, Teddi is inspiring to me. I feel like I need an accountability coach, and I wish I lived in LA so she could be mine. Also I give her so much credit for all of her hard work and determination. It’s so motivating. You go girl.

Kyle visits Mauricio at work, and she gets emotional when she talks about the fact that Sophia is leaving for college. Mauricio is really sweet – he reassures Kyle. I understand where Kyle’s coming from – I’m not a mom, but I think a lot also has to do with change. It’s hard.

At Rinna’s, she’s taking to her daughter Amelia, who has opened up about the fact she had an eating disorder. Amelia seems wise beyond her years to me. She addresses the disorder and says, “I’m not out of it. I’ll never be out of it.” Which is true of anyone who has an eating disorder, addiction, mental health issue – you can get through it, but it’s still something you battle for the rest of your life. Amelia is very strong and very mature, especially seeing that she’s only 17.

Lisa Rinna is having the girls over to do some baking/pastry making/I don’t really know what. LVP & Kyle aren’t coming – Kyle is doing a Tequila Tasting w/Mauricio (did I hear that right?) and Rinna says that Giggy is sick.

Cut to LVP & Ken – she meets him at the restaurant for lunch, and she tells us she’s just too emotional to go over to Rinna’s and put on a happy face when it’s just a facade. Totally understandable. Lisa tells Ken about the girls trip, and he thinks that Lisa should go. Lisa admits she could use the break but is worried about leaving, especially with Giggy being sick. We learn that Giggy needs a pace maker and my heart breaks. Poor little babe. Lisa also brings up Dorit, and tells Ken – “Sometimes Dorit calls it wrong.” She tells us in her confessional that she thinks Dorit handled the Lucy situation all wrong – but she loves her anyway. (Side note: If all of this is true, then why the hell are we still talking about!?)

Back at Rinna’s, the girls are all getting along and being silly. We learn that Aaron, Denise’s boyfriend, is currently still married to Nicolette Sheridan. She tells us that they’ve been separated for two years but their divorced isn’t finalized, and they’re getting married as soon as it is. We then learn that once upon a time Harry Hamlin was also married to Nicolette Sheridan. LMAO, did not know that. I’m not sure if Rinna says she cheated on him with Michael Bolton, but we all cheers to him, so that’s that.

The girls are all ready to go to The Bahamas – they’re off in the PJ. I actually really liked Dorit in this scene, she was so excited to be the one who planned the trip.

She tells LVP she wants to share a suite with her, and LVP says she’s not sharing a room with anyone. LVP is a tricky one sometimes. I honestly feel like this was Dorit extending an olive branch to her, and then they could be alone, off camera, and have a chance to talk and clear the air, and make things right between them again.

However, after LVP says she’s not sharing with anyone, she asks Kyle if she can stay in a three person suite with her. (Something along those lines, I might have the wording wrong.) Kyle then sticks up for Dorit, who looks hurt.

LVP says that Dorit snores, and I can’t tell if she’s just poking fun at Dorit and trying to be silly, or if she’s actually just being a bitch and this is her way of trying to get back at her.

Next week, shit looks like it’s about to go down. And I cannot wait.

Tell me all your thoughts! Leave me a comment.

Until next week….

RHOD: SEASON 3 REUNION PART 1

Holy shit. I have so many thoughts after watching Part 1. This was absolutely insane and we’ve barely covered anything! Staying neutral is going to be so hard but I’m going to try my best.

Before I start – can we talk about how beautiful the ladies look? I’m loving (almost) everyone’s look. I’m not crazy about Kam’s – I’m all for pink, and I actually do like the dress, but her makeup is a little much. I also generally despise cut out shoulders, so Cary’s dress is not my favorite but she still looks gorgeous. My favorite look is definitely Steph’s; so natural yet still so glamorous and beautiful. D’Andra is a total Boss Ass Bitch in that pants suit – Slay, Queen. 👸🏻 Brandi always looks amazing in blue, totally her color. I also agree with Andy, I’m loving the high pony. LeeAnne is literally glowing, loving the dress, so pretty.

We start off with Andy greeting all of the Delightful Divas of Dallas. We learn that Brandi’s adoption is finalized, Mama Dee did not take the keys back from D’Andra, and Steph feels amazing being married to a Harvard Man. Andy tells Cary she “spilled the tea” in Denmark – he has questions about her casually mentioning that she dated Lance Armstrong. (It was only like, 6 months to a year.) Moving on to Kam – “Hey Girl” ~ LMAO Andy has her down. He calls her Nicole Kidman’s doppelgänger and I never noticed this before but I totally agree. Kam’s day is made. Last but not least; “Namaste, LeeAnne.” I’m literally crying watching them meditating – and at Brandi’s “WTF is going on?” Face. 😂😂

We start off lightly, and we have a montage of all the fun times the girls had. Steph & Brandi make me LOL every time I see them together. Callie-Roo is basically famous at this point. Andy asks Steph if the kangaroo is legal, and Steph says she honestly doesn’t know. We’re all laughing at Kam riding the bull, and how she pronounces it. We flashback to Steph having her vaginal rejuvenation procedure and Andy asks how Travis likes it. Literally only Andy Cohen could get away with these questions! LMAO.

We get to our first viewer comment, and it’s about LeeAnne giving D’Andra a lap dance when they were at the rodeo, and that it looked professional. Andy asks LeeAnne if she was ever a stripper (legit only Andy!) and she says no. She says it looks like it could be a good job, because she “talks shit for a living” for Andy. Andy compliments her on her shit talking, but I’m thinking this is more of a dig than actual compliment.

I hate being back in Beaver Creek so much, everything about this scene infuriates me. (Except for Brandi’s impersonations.) Andy asks if Justin Bieber rented The Westcott’s home in Beaver Creek, and we learn that he did not, but Taylor Swift did. (I think that’s so cool! I’m such a celebrity stalker LOL.)

Andy brings up D’Andra and LeeAnne arguing over who the “Queen Bee” is, and LeeAnne tells us that D’Andra (supposedly) said that being a housewife is all about status, and that none of them were actually qualified to be housewives until she joined the cast. Brandi interrupts LeeAnne and said that D’Andra never said that when they are at Beaver Creek, and D’Andra speaks up and says she never said that. Cary chimes in and says, “She said that there wouldn’t be a show without her.” I’m sorry, I call total bullshit on that. Cary has literally been tattling on EVERYONE all season – you honestly expect me to believe that D’Andra said that and this is the first time Cary is bringing it up? Please. 🙄 Brandi interjects and says that LeeAnne is the one who says that, and then she does an impression of her, saying, “You carry this show like a turtle on your back.” (Andy laughing at this made me LOL.) D’Andra also adds that LeeAnne is the one who went to InTouch Magazine, saying that there would be no show without her, and that, “all roads lead back to LeeAnne Locken.”

The girls continue arguing, and then D’Andra drops a bombshell. “LeeAnne, for two years I’ve held a secret about you so I’m going to reveal it right now.” D’Andra says that before she joined the show, LeeAnne told her that Cary was going to “Fat Shame” her like she did to her husband, Mark, in Season 1. (Just a side note, I’ve never seen Season 1.) This entire scene is so bizarre to me – LeeAnne denies saying it, but Cary freaks the fuck out on D’Andra, and tells her, “Fuck you for thinking I said that.” Why the hell is Cary so pissed at D’Andra for telling her something that LeeAnne had said? Cary says she never fat shamed Mark – and I honestly believed her (like I said, I didn’t watch the first season) and then we get a lovely clip of Cary telling us in S1 that Mark was a “total fixer upper” and that he was a “chubby plastic surgeon with man boobs.” For real? Can you imagine ever saying something like that about your husband? Yeah, me either. This honestly makes me see Cary in an entirely different light.

Andy asks LeeAnne if she ever said that to D’Andra, and she says no. Cary comes for D’Andra again and tells her that “she’s the dumb bitch that believed her” about L’s comment. (What is happening here?) I’m becoming increasingly annoyed with these three – I do believe that LeeAnne said that, and I also believe that Cary believes she said it as well, but she has it out for D for some reason. Kam is nodding in agreement.

We talk about Brandi & D’Andra’s unexpected reconciliation, which I love. D’Andra talks about how fun loving and light Brandi is, and I’m so pissed that the producers decide to take this moment to film the three girls on the other couch talking shit. So petty.

We’re back in Beaver Creek – this time to discuss Kam & Steph’s argument. Andy asks Kameron if she was sorry once she actually watched the scene back and realized that Steph never said what she thought she said. Kameron isn’t sorry, and just says that it was a misunderstanding. Steph stays true to herself and stands by the fact that she believes Kameron was making the moment all about her and that she was being selfish. I totally agree. Kameron still isn’t ready to let this go and begins to question Brandi again about why she didn’t tell anyone about Bruin. Then she actually comes for Stephanie, saying that she doesn’t think it’s okay to joke about having a surrogate. Kameron, what planet are you on? Steph made up a completely harmless lie on a whim because she was keeping Brandi’s secret. She was being a good friend, and she never joked about surrogacy. Everyone else agrees Kameron is totally is out of line and that Steph meant no harm and did nothing wrong.

Andy asks D’Andra what she thinks about the whole situation, and she says she thinks it’s none of Kameron’s business. Kameron uses this opportunity to say, “How can you say that when you’re always in LeeAnne’s business?” D’Andra claps back with, “That’s like the pot calling the kettle black and you’re very good at that Kameron.” Cary tells D’Andra not to “deflect” and I’m honestly just wondering when Cary got balls this season?

Stephanie’s segment has me super emotional. I have the chills rewatching her open up about her depression and suicide attempt. My heart hurts for her, but at the same time I’m amazed by her strength and courage and bravery. It takes guts to talk about mental health, and as someone who also struggles with depression, anxiety and takes antidepressants, I applaud her honesty. It’s not easy, but it’s so important to keep talking about these hard topics, because there is still such a huge stigma surrounding mental health in general. Everyone is very supportive of Stephanie, which makes me happy. She is so sweet, she deserves the best of everything – including friends.

LeeAnne is up next; we start off with her newfound love of mediation, her amygdala, and her & Rich’s relationship. Andy says he sees a change in LeeAnne, and she says that she meditates every morning and also sees two therapists. “You’ve never told me you see two therapists.” LeeAnne replies by telling D’Andra that they barely speak, so why would she have told her? (Which makes sense.) D’Andra says that they were speaking at the beginning of the season and she still didn’t share it. Cary butts in – “she just told me recently” and D’Andra gets pissed and tells Cary that she’s “talking to LeeAnne.” LeeAnne jumps down D’Andra’s throat for this and tells her not to be condescending to Cary. Cary says that D’Andra is being a bitch to her, but Brandi takes the heat off of D by interrupting and saying she doesn’t believe LeeAnne. She then confesses that Tiffany (as in Tiffany Hendra from S1) told Brandi that LeeAnne doesn’t see a therapist, and that it’s bullshit. LeeAnne doesn’t believe that Tiffany said that. Brandi tells her to tell them her therapists name – and at first I’m like, why wouldn’t she tell them? Then I thought about it a little more, and I realize that I wouldn’t share with the world the name of my therapist either. So I get it. It’s not really anyone’s business.

Andy reads another viewer comment – “Why aren’t you on medication instead of banging your bowl and blaming it on your amygdala?” LeeAnne says she “appreciates that she didn’t google it”, which D’Andra finds hilarious. LeeAnne snaps at D’Andra and calls her a bitch, and tells her to “shut the fuck up”, which I found extremely aggressive, seeing that D’Andra really hadn’t said anything. LeeAnne explains amygdala, and D’Andra speaks up, saying, “Last year it was PTSD, this year it’s amygdala, what’s it going to be next year?” Cary comes at D’Andra again and D has had enough. “Cary I’m sorry you haven’t had an opinion all year and now suddenly you have balls of steel!” D’Andra is on fire! 🔥

Andy brings up the rumor that LeeAnne has spread about Mark last year (he gets his d sucked at the roundup, by other dudes) and asks Cary why she was so receptive to being friends with LeeAnne after she said that. Cary says she wasn’t, but she has forgiven her and she saw a change in her and she deserved grace. (I would never be able to befriend someone who said something like that about my husband. Maybe I’d make nice for the show, but genuine friends? Fuck no.) Cary suddenly clarifies the rumor – it was a disgruntled florist who said it (like wait, what?????) and Andy points out that LeeAnne is still the one who started the rumor. D’Andra is the only one who says exactly what I’m thinking – it’s fucking weird that these two are friends and that they’re having dinner together with their significant others. I’m sorry, there’s just no coming back from that rumor, in my opinion.

Cary calls D’Andra out and tells her that she hasn’t been a good friend. Kameron says that D’Andra texted her and was talking shit about Carys business, as well as Brandi’s clothing line, BrandiLand. Cary says she “disparaged her business publicly.” Kam gives Andy her phone so he can see the message. “It’s not really disparaging her business publicly if she’s sending this to you privately.” Cary tells D’Andra that she thought they were friends and that she’s hurt. D’Andra vehemently denies that she sent those messages, and she gives Andy her phone so he can go through the messages and see for himself that they’re not there. Andy looks and confirms that the texts are not in D’Andra’s phone. Kam says she could’ve deleted them, which Andy agrees with. D’Andra says she didn’t delete anything, and Andy says he’s not saying he believes it, but it’s possible. LeeAnne tells us that D’Andra has two phones, and she finally loses it. “I do not have two phones! You’re fucking delusional!” Kameron is still badgering D’Andra, telling her to admit that she sent the messages. Kam wants to call AT&T and I’m literally dying when Andy goes into full blown dad mode and is like “We are not calling AT&T right now.” 🤣

Andy turns his attention to Stephanie and asks her if she still thinks LeeAnne has truly changed. Steph said that at the beginning of the season she did, but towards the end she felt like LeeAnne was triggered and reverted back to her old ways. LeeAnne keeps saying that she was pushed. Which brings us to Brandi and LeeAnne’s Feud.

Andy brings up what happened at the finale, and he asks Brandi if she was trying to provoke LeeAnne. Brandi says no, she was genuinely pissed off. Andy then comments that LeeAnne was “hissing like a cobra” at Brandi, and LeeAnne says, “I was?”

Yes, you were. And it was scary AF. Andy comments that Brandi and LeeAnne seemed to start off on the right foot, and LeeAnne wants to know what set Brandi off.

This question alone sets Brandi off, and I don’t blame her. Andy explains that he thinks LeeAnne telling D’Andra to “be careful” about being her friend is what triggered it, and Brandi agrees. Stephanie thinks this all goes way deeper than that, that they had issues prior to that that they never fully got over.

Andy also brings up LeeAnne’s allegation of Brandi being an “alcoholic.” I’m so annoyed during this scene – LeeAnne, please fucking own it. It doesn’t matter if you said it once, you still said it and insinuated it all season. None of the girls think Brandi has a drinking problem, including LeeAnne. LeeAnne apologizes, but Brandi calls her out and says that she already apologized, and then she went and said that she’s not sophisticated enough to be an alcoholic, that she’s just a drunk. Andy asks LeeAnne what that means and she says she was just being a wise-ass. Steph sticks up for Brandi, saying that’s not okay that she said those things, and that she inferred that Brandi had a problem all season. Steph says it’s not fair because it puts a label on her that’s not true. Agreed. LeeAnne apologizes again, saying that she’s genuinely sorry. Sorry, but I don’t buy it.

LeeAnne’s conversation with Mama Dee gets brought up – and I don’t remember what D’Andra says right now, but LeeAnne bugs out and tells her to “go jump in a lake and drown.” Like what???? LeeAnne had said in her blog that she recorded her conversation with Mama Dee, but then she admits to everyone that she lied. Andy’s like, “So you lied in your blog?” And everyone agrees that’s fucked up. “I’m really good at-” LeeAnne starts, and Andy finishes with, “Lying?” He then says, “You’ve copped to a lot of lying this season.” To which LeeAnne responds, “I’ve picked it up from them”, referring to Brandi and D’Andra.

Part 1 is over, and my jaw is still on the floor. What did I just witness? I honestly wrote OMFG at the bottom of my notes when this was over. This was a lot to take in. Tell me all of your thoughts! Are you on anyone’s side? Or do you see all angles? Leave me a comment!

Until next week…..
