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!

LOVE AFTER LOCKUP: BLINDED BY LOVE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Until next week….

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!
