I keep meaning to recap this show and I never really have the time. I still haven’t watched the previous episode. But I know y’all love it so I shall attempt to do a mediocre recap tonight.
Okay seeing those two words pop up on the screen, I’m all in. I live for Patricia. She’s everything. I love that she now has two butlers to um….polish her silver and make her martinis. Nothing like paying to get your silver polished. Patricia is obsessed with having a wedding for her only child, who despite the unisex name is indeed a male who professes to be straight. Meanwhile, she lounges about in diamond covered slippers and dreams of grandbabies.
Patricia is preparing to go with Whitney to the fashion show. So she rings down for the butler to bring up a “dressing drink” for her to sip on as she gets ready. Though it seems she already is ready so she regales us with stories of Paris instead. Whitney asks his mother if she would rather skip the after party at the night club and go to dinner. She says she would love to go to the nightclub.
Whitney whines in his talking head about Kathryn being at the nightclub drunk and how he wants to avoid her. Newsflash. Whitney hates Kathryn because her lineage outranks hers. Patricia has the same issue with her. Sorry but Kathryn wins that contest all day long and there is no amount of money that can change that.
The butler bringing Patricia her shoes on a silver serving tray was wrong in every possible way. What on earth was Patricia thinking by allowing that production interference?
Hard at work in her little real estate home office, Cameran gets a call from Thomas to let her know that they found a house with another agent. I do not know why the hell Thomas sold the house he had downtown in the first place. It was perfect. Wasn’t it on Queen Street? Who sells property on Queen? Sigh. I hate Thomas.
I may had Thomas but I do love his real estate especially the plantation on Edisto. Things are tense with Thomas and Kathryn after the incident with Whitney the night before.
Thomas is having a Carolina BBQ for campaign fundraiser. It’s a public event. And the crazies are out. Thomas’ campaign manager dressed Thomas but stupidly left Kathryn to dress herself. I like Kathryn and I am not as down on her matronly look as y’all are but that stupid white YSL t-shirt with an orange bra underneath is a fashion fail. Also you can try to match whites the culottes are beige and black not black and white. Most of the time that is not going to work. Love her, but this outfit was bad. Love the long fishbone braid though. It’s hot y’all that is why she wears her hair up out of the way all the time.
Please note the lack of solo cups. Even at a BBQ.
Thomas gives a thank you speech and forgets to thank Kathryn.
God. Kathryn and Thomas’ baby is gorgeous. The family packs to move to the new downtown house. Thomas hopes this will get Kathryn all of his back. It won’t. A ring might. But this won’t.
I love Shep. He so reminds me of the one that got away, who was from Charleston so all of these places bring back some memories. Craig shows up to party with Shep. There is always an endless supply of pretty young girls in Charleston. Despite that, I don’t see how Craig gets any. Aside from the whole drunken mess part, he’s a slimeball and looks like a used car salesman.
The next day, Shep goes over to Craig to have a friendly talk about how Craig is snorting his life away. I mean to talk about Craig’s plans for the future. Craig looks like shit. He is not even studying for the bar. Shep says that he and Cameran are worried about him. Craig says that Shep is always out with him. Craig is in the fashion show and getting drunk to “walk better.” How did Craig even get on this show?
The Palmer House
Can we all have a moment of silence for the Palmer House on The Battery please? See this is why don’t recap this. I just want to see every glimpse of Charleston. OH my God. I need another moment. This may be the best house in the world. I die. How do these people even get to have a fashion show there? I think it is a Bed and Breakfast now which is kind of sad, though it would be nice to stay there, I suppose. I just picture lots of dumb tourists all up in there and it makes me feel icky.
Craig is hitting the bar at the Palmer House hard before he even gets dressed for the show.
Kathryn and Whitney glare at each other from across the room. Their seats are practically knee to knee. Let the bow tie fashion show begin! Love Craig’s black tie with the orange backing. Wait, whut? Kathryn thinks Craig is hot? Oh Kathryn could you have shittier taste in men? Are you subconsciously trying to kill your parents?
Whitney wants to leave so he and his mommy go to dinner where Whitney made reservations because apparently Patricia was kidding about the after party.
Fun Fact: Shep’s arms are longer than selfie sticks. God he is dreamy.
The after party is at Republic and it looks magnificent. I don’t think it was there during my heyday. Or if it was I don’t remember going. I spent most of my partying time on Isle of Palms. Meanwhile, Craig is shitfaced. In his talking head, Craig makes a good point that Ravenel is not the person he needs life advice from.
Next Week: Shep has a birthday part for himself. Thomas’ campaign manager says the raise the roof ad did not go over well. Um, duh.
