RHOD: BABES IN BRANDILAND

Things are heating up in Dallas and I am not even the least bit surprised. After watching last weeks episode, I thought that the preview for this weeks episode looked intense, and I wasn’t wrong. Before I get into the recap, I have to say, Dallas really is so interesting on so many levels. We have some real, genuine friendships on this franchise, and you don’t always see that on the housewives. (I mean, look at OC. I love Gina & Emily as new additions, but none of the friendships seem genuine anymore. Heather Dubrow left, and the OC began to sink like The Titanic.) The dynamic of the friendships of the ladies is so interesting to me as well. Nothing is cut & dry or black & white. The friendships intertwine with each other, and they end up getting very tangled. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the season goes….

Ok, on to the recap!

We start off with Brandi going over to Stephanie’s house. Steph is planning a spa day so all the ladies can just chill after all of the emotional drama that was unleashed during Smashing Friendships. Steph is the perfect person to host a Spa Day – because her bathroom is literally a spa. I mean, I died. The fireplace, the beautiful couch with those gorgeous, fluffy throw pillows, that hot tub, complete with jets and a waterfall – I am literally dead. Oh I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Steam Room, and the super futuristic toilet! So beyond, I am in love. Anyway, Steph wants this Spa Day to be perfect, so she and Brandi, as well as Steph’s assistant, Trey, are going to be auditioning male models for the part. This whole scene had me cracking up – I love Steph & Brandi’s friendship so much. They’re always a blast together and have so much fun. The guy who auditioned who had the baby Kangaroo with him – OMG! How cute was she!? LOL too funny. Steph’s reaction to the kangaroo was everything. The girls end up hiring everyone because they were all cute and nice. Love them!

LeeAnne is about to do a photo/video shoot for her new dress, which can be worn 175 ways. (Impressive!) She meets her stylist, Jeanette, and she’s getting her makeup done, when Kam comes in to meet her. LeeAnne wants to talk about the “Smash Party from Hell” and Kameron happily goes along. Hearing LeeAnne say that she thought D’Andra “going off” was a performance was hurtful. I didn’t expect that from her. D’Andra wasn’t acting, she was hurt. I do believe LeeAnne, however, when she said that she told Cary because she and Cary were working on a friendship, and D’Andra and Cary are already friends. I truly don’t think that there was any malicious intent in what was said. I find it interesting that Kameron believes Cary will take sides. Apparently she’s been holding a grudge since Beaver Creek, because she feels like Cary had her back one minute, and then switched to Stephanie’s side the next. I don’t think Cary was on any side, she was just being honest and calling it like she saw it. They talk about Brandi’s upcoming Trunk Show, and Kameron says she doesn’t want to go. LeeAnne convinces her that she should, which I liked.

We’re at the Brandiland Pop up Event! I’m so proud of Brandi. She created a clothing line that is lounge/resort wear, and everything is so cute. The girls begin to arrive. Cary and D’Andra arrive together, and I’m LOLing as Cary labels her purse a “she” and puts a raincoat on her. I mean, hey, if I owned a Birkin, I would put a raincoat on her, too. Have you ever seen the price of a Birkin!?

LeeAnne is being super shady in regards to Brandiland & she needs to cut it out. Let’s support each other!! The girls are all mingling, and Kameron decides that now would definitely be the best time to pull Cary aside to talk. You couldn’t have gone for coffee to do this? It’s Brandi’s day! Kam explains to Cary that she was hurt in Beaver Creek because she feels like she played both sides between herself and Stephanie. Cary responds, and Kam gets mad because Cary “pointed her finger” at her. Literally in the next breath Kam points a finger at Cary while trying to get her point across and I’m just like – ugh. This is why Cary said arguing with Kameron was exhausting. Cary tries to call Steph into the convo and Kam loses it and stomps away. Poor Steph is like WTF is going on? This was so unnecessary. How can you play both sides if you’re friends with both parties? It doesn’t make sense.

D’Andra and LeeAnne end up talking, but I’m not mad about this. One, because I desperately want them to make up, and two because this happened very naturally and wasn’t planned. D’Andra tells LeeAnne how she felt, and LeeAnne feels horrible. This is extremely confusing to me because of what’s happening in the confessionals and in present day, on twitter. We just heard LeeAnne tell Kam that she thought D’Andra was faking her reaction to the entire situation. They seem to make up, and then we cut to another confessional of D’Andra saying LeeAnne had “crocodile tears.” Okay, I’m clearly missing something here? Why aren’t they being honest with each other? Or did more happen that we, the viewers, don’t know about?

Kam and Cary start talking again, and Cary apologizes, but Kam just can’t let it go. Kam literally brings up Mexico (I’m dead) and how she felt like Cary didn’t have her back with the dildo thing, so Cary tells her that while they were in Beaver Creek Brandi & Steph were going to give her “stressticles” but Cary convinced them not to. This is sufficient enough evidence for Kam to believe Cary has her back, and they’re all good. They randomly bring this up to Brandi, and it’s obvious she’s pissed, and we will soon find out why.

Steph and LeeAnne are having their own private convo, and I truly love how Stephanie is giving LeeAnne a chance and wants to have a friendship with her. I feel like Steph is definitely coming into her own more, and she seems more confident and independent. She’s such a sweetheart. LeeAnne tells Steph she wants to get to know her better, and that Kameron does too. LeeAnne is going to plan a lunch for the three of them.

Everyone heads out, and it’s just Steph and Brandi. Steph instantly knows something is up with B, and she eventually tells us that she’s really upset about Cary telling Kameron that she convinced them not to give Kam the “stressticles” because it’s not true, she decided not to do it on her own. Brandi isn’t over the fact that Kameron thinks she’s a bad influence, and this is bothering her. She starts to cry, and Steph comforts her. Clearly this goes deeper than just Kameron & Cary, and Steph can see that, too. Steph and Brandi sit down and Steph tells her that she’s worried about her. Steph can read Brandi like a book – she was so spot on in regards to how Brandi was feeling. Brandi is seriously Super Mom and doesn’t like to ask for help because she sees it as a sign of failure. So not true! It’s impossible to do everything and be the best at it. It’s okay to ask for help. I got emotional just watching this scene, and I’m so glad that Brandi had Steph in that moment. Everyone needs a Stephanie Hollman type of friend in their life.

It’s Spa Day! Kameron and D’Andra are absent, so it just leaves the four other girls. They split into groups of two, so Steph decides she will get a massage with LeeAnne so Brandi and Cary can pair up and get mani’s and talk it out. Brandi does confront Cary – she says she felt like Cary was trying to make her look bad in front of Kameron. Cary apologizes and tells her that was not her intention. She also agrees with Brandi that it was her own decision not to give Kam the Stressticles, but that Cary also gave her two cents on it as well. She explains that she felt like she needed to defend herself to Kam, because Kam felt like she didn’t have her back. (Do you see what I’m saying about the intertwining friendships now?)

We go back and forth between LeeAnne & Stephanie, and Cary and Brandi. LeeAnne asks Steph what was going on between Kam, Brandi and Cary, and Steph briefly fills her in. LeeAnne doesn’t think Cary is “mutual.” In the other room, Brandi is telling Cary she doesn’t want Kameron to think she’s a bad influence, but she also feels like Kameron has different standards for certain people, which I definitely agree with. Meanwhile, LeeAnne is telling Steph that she thinks Brandi and Kameron need to talk. LeeAnne admits that Kameron accepts her, and she owns that she doesn’t have perfect etiquette. LeeAnne also thinks that Brandi judges Kameron, and not the other way around. Not sure how I feel about that. At the same time, Brandi tells Cary she doesn’t think Kameron has a voice of her own, and that she thinks LeeAnne is in her ear.

Yikes. Are you keeping up? I feel like I’m going on circles!!

Over at Kameron’s house, she’s taking to Court about the Global Pet Expo and Sparkle Dog, and I’m just so annoyed. Why is Court soooo unsupportive? It’s infuriating! I feel like he shoots down everything Kameron says and it’s frustrating to watch. Why don’t you want your wife to live her best life? I don’t get it.

What an episode! I will say that we totally did not have enough of D’Andra this time around, which I did not like. Next week looks interesting…..I’m trying to learn not to comment before the episode actually airs, because the producers typically throw me all off and I’m wrong in my assumptions. So my lips are sealed.

See you next week!
