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!

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!

 

RHOP: SHOWDOWN AT THE HOEDOWN

All housewife franchises – take note! These are the kind of episodes Bravo fans live for.  So insane, let’s just jump right in.

We start out with Gizelle and Robyn – they’re shopping for stuff for Gizelle’s kitchen. We learn that Gizelle’s offer was accepted on the home she wanted to renovate, and she wants to take her time decorating and getting it all together because she sees this house as her “forever home.”

Robyn and Gizelle sit down, and Robyn tells Gizelle that she met up with Katie and Katie is planning to invite all of the girls over to her house (her farm) for a Hoedown. They bring up Ashley, because she’ll obviously be there.  Robyn tells Gizelle that she doesn’t really get why she had to apologize to Ashley.  “You brought it up,” Robyn tells her.  Gizelle is annoyed, and asks, “Are you trying to put this on me?” Robyn replies, “I’m not trying to put this on you, but I don’t get why I’m the only one she’s upset with.”  (I totally agree with Robyn, for the record.)  Gizelle disagrees. “That’s what we’re not doing,” she says. “We’re not bringing Gizelle into PenisGate.”  Gizelle goes on to say, “I wasn’t there, I didn’t hear it.  I have enough to deal with.”  Robyn calmly responds, “We all have enough to deal with.  No one’s mad at you.  She (meaning Ashley) thinks I should’ve pulled her to the side, but I’m not the one who instigated it.”  I mean, Robyn is not wrong.  Gizelle is the one who brought this up.  “You brought it up,” Robyn tells her. 

Gizelle finally sees what Robyn is saying.  “Okay, fine.  I brought it up.” Robyn asks her, “Do you think we should’ve pulled her to the side?”  Gizelle admits, “Okay fine, I own it. This is partly my fault.  But only like 4%.”  LMFAO.  Gizelle admits she was also in the wrong, and along with Robyn, she plans to apologize to Ashley.

Candiace visits Chris at his restaurant. She tells him she came to see him for “another date night”, and I’m dying when Chris is like, “That’s okay.  I don’t need to spend 24 hours with you.”  LMAO.  Candiace beings to fill in Chris on how therapy went with her Mom.  Chris laughs – and then he apologizes for laughing – but he can’t help it because he feels like the way Dorothy treated Candiace in therapy is how Candiace treats him when they argue.  This annoys Candiace.  “I do not diminish the way that you feel,” she snaps.  “You don’t,” Chris agrees, “But the argument is similar.”  Candiace is pissed – she gets up and storms out of the restaurant.  She gets in her car, and Chris follows her, standing in between the car door.

“You need to be able to see the other side,” Chris tells her. Candiace isn’t listening to him.  “The dynamic is not the same,” she repeats.  Honestly, how does Candiace not see that what she’s doing to Chris right now is exactly what her mother does to her?  Chris is not wrong.  Candiace is being a total brat.  The behavior she’s exhibiting right now is identical to Dorothy’s behavior.  Chris continues to try to reason with her.  “When you get emotional like this you shut down and you don’t want to deal with anything.”  “That’s my fucking right!” Candiace yells at him.  At this point, Candiace clearly can’t be reasoned with, but Chris isn’t done trying.  He brings up the situation with Ashley and Candiace loses it.  “I want you to shut the fuck up and leave.  Move.”  Chris won’t budge.  “I’m trying to help you!” He says exasperatedly.  Candiace is acting like a spoiled brat.  She won’t listen, and she drives off, leaving her argument with Chris unresolved.

Meanwhile, Karen and Ray are going for a motorcycle ride. LMAO, I love Karen.  She hasn’t driven a motorcycle in years. She feels renewed since going to the salt cave, so this is something she really wanted to do.  With an instructor’s help, Karen literally rides around the parking lot on a motorcycle.  She tells us she feels liberated.

Monique is shopping for baby clothes, and Ashley meets up with her. (Side note: Monique is literally the cutest pregger EVER.) Ashley fills her in on her performance at Virginia Gay Pride, and Monique apologizes for not being there.  “You had your people there with you, though,” she remarks.  And then she asks, “Is Robyn still your people?”  Ashley tells Monique she’s not happy with Robyn.  She brings up the brief conversation that she had with her, and how Robyn tried to blame Gizelle because she instigated it.  “We all know Gizelle is an instigator,” Ashely says.  Monique thought that the whole thing was “too much.”  Ashley thinks that Robyn should’ve not said anything at dinner, even when being put on the spot by Gizelle.  In her confessional, Monique tells us, “How you gonna get mad at Robyn?  You know Robyn ain’t the brain, she’s Pinky!” They also briefly discuss Candiace’s behavior at dinner, and Monique admits she didn’t appreciate the way she acted.  She tells us that she can’t figure out why Candiace is gunning for Ashley.

Two Days Later:

Oh, the dramatics! They even give us the exact date: 9/27/18.  News breaks about Michael – he’s being charged for “groping/grabbing” a cameraman’s butt, and could face up to 3-11 years in jail if he’s found guilty.  The word is quickly spreading all around Potomac.  Gizelle texts Robyn – it’s a link about Michael being charged with sexual assault.  Candiace FaceTimes Monique – “Have you heard the news?” Monique tells her it’s everywhere, she even heard it on the radio.  We see a clip of Wendy Williams covering the story, and she basically accuses Ashley of knowing Michael did it. I’m not surprised by these allegations – but I am surprised when Monique tells Candiace that this incident supposedly happened the day of the Rainbow Party.  Ummmm, what!?

Meanwhile, Ashley is out with Katie, and they’re shopping for the hoedown. Ashley is completely in the dark that this news broke.  Gizelle calls her to check in.  She quickly realizes Ashley doesn’t know what’s going on, so she tells her.  Ashley acts extremely nonchalant about the entire situation, and she says that she knows all about it – it’s not true, but she can’t really talk about it.  I think we can all agree with Gizelle when she’s like, “What’s really going on here?”

We’re at Monique’s, and Candiace comes over. Monique is putting together her bassinet, because the doctors told her that the baby could come sooner than expected.  The girls start chatting, and the crazy dinner party gets brought up.  “You went from zero to outer space,” Monique tells Candiace.  Candiace says she was angry.  She feels like Ashley took what she shared with the group (about her mom) and used it against her.  “You allowed her to get under your skin,” Monique says.  “Even Chris couldn’t calm you down.”  Monique is trying to be real with Candiace.  She tells her she felt like she wasn’t acting like grown woman, she was throwing a temper tantrum.  Candiace isn’t happy about this.  She feels like she’s being judged by a friend who’s exhibited “hood” behavior.  (Really Candiace?)  Candiace tells Monique, “I don’t want this stuff with my mom to spill over into my relationship.”  Monique replies, “It’s definitely spilling over into your friendships.”  She goes on to tell her, “You could’ve had a little bit more self control.”  Monique is honestly just trying to be a good friend to Candiace – sometimes friends tell you shit you don’t want to hear, but it’s the truth.  Instead of listening to Monique, Candiace is just getting annoyed.  She’s not seeing that she’s coming from a good place.

It’s the day of the hoedown. Robyn is first to arrive.  Ashley and Gizelle are riding together.  Gizelle apologizes to Ashley for her part in bringing up “Penis Gate”, and Ashley forgives her.  Karen and Monique are riding together, and they’re discussing the recent allegations against Michael.  “Consent is everything,” Karen says.  (I’m dying.)  Gizelle briefly brings up the situation to Ashley, and Ashley says that she cannot talk about it.  Gizelle drops it.

All of the ladies are arriving. When Gizelle and Ashley arrive, Ashley jumps out of the car, super excited to see everyone.  She’s bubbly and hyper, and Robyn finds it strange.  “She’s going to pretend like nothing happened,” she tells us in her confessional.  Robyn pulls Ashley aside to apologize, and Ashley quickly forgives her.  For now, everyone is totally fine.

The girls play games – corn hole, tug of war, beer pong, and they’re all having fun. Before they sit down to eat, Katie gives a super weird toast.  The girls all sit down at the table, and Candiace apologizes to everyone for her outburst at dinner.  “I appreciate the apology,” Gizelle says, “but it needs to go to that side of the table.”  Gizelle references where Ashley is sitting.  “That’s a conversation that needs to happen separately,” Candiace says. Then she adds, “But I was also told by you that Ashley never wants to speak to me again.”  Gizelle agrees – Ashley did say that. Candiace goes on to say that if Ashley is open to speaking with her, they can have a conversation.  “Thank you, I appreciate that,” Ashley says.  She doesn’t add whether or not she wants to have a conversation with Candiace. 

Ashley then goes on to bring up Michael – she addresses it as the “elephant in the room”, but tells the girls she can’t discuss it. “You can’t say anything?” Robyn asks.  Ashley says no.  In her confessional, Robyn says that Ashley has been very messy in the past when it came to everyone else’s business. (Thank you to the shady producers for those throwbacks of how messy Ashley was.  I told you – KARMA.)

Karen tells Ashley, “ I hope that it turns out positive for you.” LMFAO at Gizelle – she has to stir the pot.  “Karen, you were high-fivin’ Robyn at Candiace’s house.”  This irritates Ashley, who looks at Karen and says, “Karen, just remember, you have a few skeletons in your closet.”  Karen owns that she did high five Robyn, but says that Gizelle needs to be held accountable for bringing Ashley back in the house after Candiace had already kicked her out.  “What kind of friend are you?” Karen asks.  Monique tells us that she thinks they’re all wrong, and Katie wants them to just “squash it.”  Robyn calls out Candiace for coming for Ashley.  Candiace tells Ashley, “I want to be friends. I have no vendetta against you, Ashley.” Gizelle is like, “Well, you said her marriage sounds fishy.”  “That’s my opinion!” Candiace exclaims.

(Candiace, why aren’t you getting this? Yes, you have an opinion, and you’re entitled to it.  But don’t say you don’t have a vendetta against Ashley and you want to be her friend when you’re saying all of this negative shit.  It doesn’t make sense.) Gizelle says that it’s judgment, not an opinion, and Monique and Robyn agree.  “I don’t care what Monique says, I don’t care what Robyn says!” Candiace tells us.  Monique is calling her out, and Candiace is pissed.  “You’re all hypocrites!”

The girls are all arguing at this point, and Katie interjects with another toast – “To fake bitches and ass grabbing!” LMFAO, that literally shuts up the entire table. Everyone disperses.  Karen approaches Ashley and asks, “Are you okay, Miss Ash?”  “I’m always gonna be alright, Karen, but thanks for asking,” Ashley snaps.  “Is there an attitude there?” Karen asks her. “Yeah, because I also overheard you saying stuff, too,” Ashley tells her.  She goes on to say that Karen is nice to Ashley’s face, but talks shit behind her back.  “You should be used to that,” Karen says. “That’s what you do to everybody.”  Ashley says that she doesn’t do that to Karen – if she has an issue with her, she tells her to her face.  “Karma is a bitch, honey!” LMFAO Karen is not playing.  Ashley makes a comment about Ray’s old lawsuit, and Karen is not having it.  I’m dying when she makes some comment about Michael being careful with the soap, referencing him going to jail.  LMFAO.  I can’t you guys.  You can’t even make this shit up.

Candiace pulls Karen aside, and someone apologizes to Katie. Monique joins Candiace and Karen.  Candiace told Karen she feels like people who are supposed to be her friend aren’t on her side.  Monique is like, “You’re not hearing what we’re saying.”  Candiace says she hears exactly what they’re saying.  “For you to call me a hypocrite Candiace, I’m so irritated right now with you.  I’m not a hypocrite, I’ve been saying the same things to you!  You don’t like the fact that I’m being real with you.”  Fucking preach Monique!!!!  Candiace still does not get it.  “You’re sticking up for someone who had nothing but negative things to say about me.”  Monique is like, “You’re literally doing the same things she did last year!”  “Why don’t you go over there since ya’ll are good friends now?” Candiace says, being extremely petty.  “Don’t talk to me like I’m a child,” Monique says, walking away.  Candiace is still talking shit as Monique goes, and Monique stops and turns around and is like, “I will still drag you, pregnant and all!”  This sets Candiace off.  “Drag me, Monique! Drag me!” Monique makes some comment about throwing a bottle at Candiace’s head.  I’m dying.

Candiace feels judged, and Karen thinks that Candiace needs a friend at the moment. Karen thinks everyone’s been dramatic, and it’s not fair to call out Candiace when they’ve all had their moments.  Monique apologizes to Candiace for threatening to throw a bottle at her – she says she let her emotions get the best of her.  She’s just trying to be real with Candiace, and she doesn’t get why Candiace doesn’t’ see that.  Both girls are emotional, and Candiace tells Monique to get away from her.

Jesus! So much drama. Between everyone.  I truly do agree with Monique, 100%.  I think Candiace is struggling with the issues she’s having with her Mom, and that it is spilling over into all of her other relationships.

Are you Team Monique or Team Candiace? Do you think Michael is guilty?  Thoughts!?

Until next week…..
