I’m just getting to recapping Don’t be Tardy… Sorry for the delay. First of all, can I just say that I love that Kim is in sweatpants and that the kitchen is not exactly pristine. With four kids in the house, nannies or not, it just makes it seem so much more real than on Real housewives where the kitchens are all staged for someone housewife to cut fancy cheese and create a fruit plate in a sterile environment. Brielle tries to talk to Kim about her school issues but she is distracted by the boys. Brielle is having a hard time getting time with her mom because two under two is so time-consuming.
Meanwhile, it’s the end of the football season and Kroy is pretty banged up. He is at chiro trying to get into the best condition for the upcoming playoff game. Then Kim gets adjusted and says that it is because of Kroy’s sexual antics that her body is all messed up. Also it seems that she thinks a wig weighs ten pounds. Um noe. Brielle is bugging her mom on the chiro table, seeking attention. Apparently, the chiro is able to predict the number of kids and the gender Kim will have through some sort of muscle testing. I don’t think the doctor or Kim really take it any more seriously than other methods like the wedding ring on a string test. It’s just cute. Brielle is not excited about more kids and she definitely doesn’t want more girls. She says she has always wanted blonde hair and blue eyes and older brothers and that is what the new girl would probably have. Kim still seems to be in denial that her boys are redheads. The doctor says the next kid will be a boy. Apparently he was right the last time.
Kim and Kroy are in the kitchen where Kim is making bloody marys and going down a list of things he needs to do and just spouting out random comments. Kroy is frustrated because he can’t follow her hyperactive train of thought. Kim cannot focus. She says she has ADD. Kroy is annoyed. Kim says she thinks it is the IUD making her spacey. Kim wants to yank the IUD and use the pullout method. Kim wants to remove it RIGHT NOW, Kroy wants to make a doctor’s appointment like a normal person. Somehow, she convinces him to try to remove it. We are hearing everything from behind the door. Kim yanks it out herself. Neither one of them know how the IUD works by the way.
Kim, Brielle and Jenn go to the house she is building. Brielle is trying to talk to Kim about them getting out and doing things. Most teens don’t usually ask so straightforwardly for time with their mother. It’s sweet and sort of heartbreaking. Brielle points out that she knew this would happen. Brielle and Arianna both look stunning in their talking heads. However they are glammed up like grown women, and I wish they would not do that. Brielle is sort of acting in this scene. Whether it is for the cameras or just the typical 16-year-old playing her mother, I don’t know. Either way it is not genuine. Oh Lord, it is storyline. She starts fake crying about her grandmother. Not buying it. Brielle should not look into a career in the acting field. Kim is much better at fake crying. The conversation ends with Kim promising a vacation. Next week: Everyone is at the beach! So storyline.
That said, I do like this show and wish it were an hour long.
