Before they are even in the car they are setting the scene for Brielle to get into trouble in the Escalade during spring break. Is it mean or does this scene scream reshoot? They are taking an RV and the escalade down to Destin, Florida. All of Brielle’s friends will be there. Kim says they are renting a house with a private beach and then says they need to be worried about paparazzi. Really? In Destin? The only way there will be paps in Destin is if Kim calls them up and invites them. It’s a Hollywood holiday spot. It’s actually one of the few remaining semi quiet (except during spring break) beaches that is an easy drive from Atlanta.
Kim wants new Louis Vuitton luggage for the baby boys. Kroy is totally against it. Kim is drinking out of a red solo cup, but at least it is the fancy kind with ridges. Oh look the Christmas tree is back. I thought it was finally gone on the last episode. Why the fuck didn’t production insist that the tree come down before filming a thing? Anyway, the twins needing their own suitcases has now turned into Kim needing five new pieces of luggage before going on a road trip. So scripted.
Sweetie has full hair makeup and accessorized clothing ensembles for her “job” whatever that may be. Of course Kroy just happens to be there when the girls try to sneak the luggage inside. Kroy says, if she keeps it, he has a retaliation plan in place.
The RV is basically a ginormous tour bus. It looks a lot like the one on the Leann & Eddie show this week. It’s way more chaotic with 8 kids and at least four adults. The two oldest girls each got to bring a friend, there are a couple of nannies and at least one cameraman in there and Sweetie is following in the Escalade. Sweetie has the best ride of the bunch if you ask me. They stop at a convenience store and Kim of course has to shop. I love convenience stores of road trips because everybody knows that road trip food has no calories or preservatives! And it is the best excuse to buy trashy tabloids to read on the beach. This is making me want to go to Destin. Schools are starting up any day now, it would be a good time…
Kim swears she lost $250,000 last time she was in the Bahamas. I don’t believe that. Bahamas is not a high stakes place and Kim isn’t half as stupid as she pretends to be. Kim spends $1,200 on lottery tickets and miscellaneous crap. She was buying scratch offs by the roll. I sort of always wanted to do that, you have to figure you will get a least half of it back if you win. Maybe. They say that Kim won $36. I don’t believe that either.
Scratch tickets… I love to gamble, always have! In Georgia there is not a casino, so the closest thing to a slot machine is a scratch ticket! Every time we head to Destin, Kroy and I stop at the same gas station and get our scratch tickets. I am not sure how much I won this time but I think I broke even. It’s all in good fun, and I do it responsibly.
How the hell are they five hours and ten minutes away on a 5 hour road trip? Kroy informs Kim she is going camping with him since she bought the luggage. They arrive at 1 am. How is that possible? It’s a five-hour trip? Did they leave at 8 p.m.?
Once they are in Destin, it rains for days. So they are stuck in the house????? Over rain? Is Elephant Walk still there? Go have fancy dinner and crème brulee! Go to the outlet malls! Make a pitcher of sangria and watch the rain fall into the ocean! Quit being such a complainer! You are at the beach! Oh and Kim, even if your favorite game is playing with Kroy’s penis, that is probably not something you should announce on a TV show your daughter’s friends watch.
Brielle and her friend are allowed to go to hang with friends at a different resort. Kroy tries to point out to Kim that Brielle might not be as innocent and she thinks she is. This does not sit well with Kim and they have small blow up.
Here is what Kim says about Brielle in her blog:
It’s hard for me with Brielle getting older to let her go, BUT I know I have to let her spread her wings and learn to fly! I am trying. This is really the first spring break where she has wanted to go hang out with her friends a lot more and not spend as much time with us. I mean she is almost 18! When Kroy and I started talking about Brielle, it was simply because I had received a text message from a parent who said as long as Brielle was going to be at this party they were letting their child go. I told Kroy how proud of Brielle I am. I of course think Brielle is perfect in every way, however am I by no means naive. Brielle has not had alcohol, and I believe her when she tells me that. What Kroy was simply trying to tell me is, we don’t know 100% because we are not with her 24/7, where as I was trying to say we know Brielle and she could never hold that back from us (especially me). We talk about everything and we have a very open relationship. Kroy and I thankfully have not had to deal with the “usual” teenage things with Brielle other than staying on her about her grades. If that is as bad as it gets, I’ll take it. She is a very focused, strong girl who has always been a leader, and for that I am proud. I have five others I hope to raise the same way.
I checked out Brielle’s TL a little bit and it seems she does get some shit, but she just retweets it and laughs. I think Brielle and Ariana will be just fine.
