Tonight on RHOOC we will have dueling vacations. First, Shannon and David are going on a second honeymoon to Cabo. Meanwhile, Tamra, Kelly and Vicki are going to La Quinta for a birthday celebration.
Merv Griffin’s Estate in La Quinta
Vicki’s birthday celebration in Palm Desert is at Merv Griffin’s estate. It’s really super nice. I let my passport expire and have been getting itchy to go somewhere and have been thinking that Palm Springs might be nice around November. I of course read way to much Conde Nast Traveler and am always planning trips I don’t take.
I missed how they got there but it must have been a party bus because Tamra is screaming at the top of her lungs while having the most mundane conversations. None of these women seem to know who Merv Griffin is. I’d mock them but I only know that he produced a lot of game shows.
Meghan and Jim are going to the desert for something. Meghan is invited to Vicki’s party so she is going to try to do both. Heather it seems it taking a mental health break from filming with the ladies. So we had to suffer through a date night with Terry. The storyline was Terry works so much he is missing his kids childhood.
Briana brought the boys. She is going to make a lot of money this season. She appears to be an FOH with an appearance on every episode. I bet that was part of Vicki’s negotiations. Briana and Tamra manage to get locked out of the house.
Kelly talks about Heather and says, ” Don’t act like you are a ‘higher arky” than me.” Then she shows Tamra a text she sent Heather where she apologized. Tamra continues to stir the pot between these two while pretending she is trying to get them back together.
Tamra wants everyone to make up before the Glamis trip which is the next episode. I just checked and according to Wikipedia there are only 13 regular episodes this season. This is episode nine. I wonder if the ATV accident cut things short?
Briana is also celebrating her birthday this weekend. Her brother Michael shows up followed by her husband, Ryan. She seems shocked and not overly thrilled and then changes her reaction to…happy tears?
Meghan shows up at house in a bikini and cover up ready for the pool party. Meghan says she thinks she is pregnant. She thinks she can feel both babies. Sadly, we know it is only the girl. Meghan is much more enjoyable when she is being polite to Vicki.
The Beador’s Second Honeymoon in Cabo
The Beador’s are still in Sante Fe, but they soon arrive in Cabo. We get to replay the last time they were in Mexico so that we can be reminded that David cheated.
I’m honestly very distracted by the fact that I can’t find my tin of German Nivea that is always on my coffee table. Moisturizing is essential. Where could it be? Oh crap. It is also trash night.
Shannon is over the moon about her vow renewal. As much as some of y’all bitch about Luann being excited for an actual engagement, I better see some frothing outrage about her happiness as well.
They are doing their own videos and Shannon videos David naked in their little private pool off their room.
Heather and Kelly Showdown
Back in Laguna, Tamra has orchestrated a meeting between Kelly and Heather to smooth the waters before they head to the desert. Kelly sort of stumbles in last in a weird outfit. Is she under the influence of something? She’s walking weird. The whole vibe is awkward. It doesn’t go very well. Heather is not being truthful. Kelly starts crying because Vicki told her Heather didn’t want her around her kids. I mean I can say a lot about Heather, but she is not wrong on that regard. I wouldn’t want most of these women around my kids. Kelly cries about her integrity being questioned and says that she doesn’t just attack people. There is lots of blubbering. Heather decides to just move on.
Next Week: Shannon sells her house. And Everyone goes to Glamis. Where things don’t go well.
