We start with Shannon and Vicki going to Shannon’s whackadoodle “energy doctor” for some acupuncture. I have never seen anyone get acupuncture on TV who even admitted they could feel anything when the needles were inserted. I was also unaware anal probing was part of the procedure. Plus, did he plug the needles into some sort of electric doo hickey? After all that Vicki did a talking head saying it was great! Also, why would Shannon act like $100 is a lot for a visit? I’m sure her therapist is three times that!
Meanwhile, Heather is planning a ground breaking party for her new home. It’s fittingly, perhaps, going to be a Hoe Down. She planning a huge tented even with barrels and hay bales and a mechanical bull. Remember last year when we all thought Heather was the biggest bitch ever for not allowing Terry to have onion rings at her dinner party? Well message received. This time she is planning an entire onion ring station. That would be fabulous.
Vicki, Shannon and Tamra go to get their nails done. Of course the script is for Tamra to talk about Heather. Shannon is getting sucked into the vortex that these two harpies create. Tamra also tries to lay the foundation gossiping about Lizzie by comparing her to Gretchen and Alexis.
Lizzie’s home life doesn’t look fun or very structured for the kids. Meanwhile, at Shannon’s house she is going nuts with the Christmas decorations. It looks only slightly more fun.
Tamra’s son Ryan is a manager at Cut Fitness. Ryan has a full beard and looks a lot different, but still has no ambition in life. Eddie and Tamra seem to be giving Ryan totally different directives about what he should be doing.
Shannon is introducing Vicki to a Feng Shui decorator. Vicki continues to fight Don in the divorce over his request for spousal support. The Feng Shui lady seems to want to do some whacky stuff that even involves moving walls. She also wants to put up tons of pictures of Vicki. I’m down with a little Feng Shui but this lady was a nutbar.
I kind of love that this show is filming during the Christmas season. I love Christmas. All the girls take a limo to a go on a girls’ night out. In the limo, Vicki starts with Lizzie right away. Lizzie gives it right back to her. Vicki hates pageant girls and judges her immediately.
” Insecurities are very loud.” Lizzie. I think I’m going to like this one!
Wait! Bio identical hormone therapy will restart your periods? Lord, the more I find out about the mysteries of perimenopause, the more I hate it. BTW, not one but two spell checkers do not know the word, perimenopause.
At the bar/restaurant there is some controversy when Vicki dares to tell Heather to give up he chair for Shannon. I would not have moved in the first place, but once she moved, it was too late to make a production out of it. Now Shannon hates Heather because, childish. Heather tries to say that Shannon doesn’t live in her area of the neighborhood. Vicki ask Lizzie about her ethnicity. Vicki orders tequila shots of for everyone. Tamra and Vicki pressure everyone in the group to shoot tequila. Somehow, Lizzie doesn’t get a shot, she believes it was intentional. I don’t think it was.
As usual, Vicki has no table manners and wants to bring up diarrhea at the table. I cannot, CAN NOT be around people discussing bathroom topics. It’s a HUGE pet peeve. So uncouth. Now Vicki and Tamra are getting into it because of Lizzie. None of these women get along at all. Vicki brings up Brooks. Tamra starts poisoning the new girls against Brooks.
This was an okay episode, but really nothing recap worthy.
Holy shit. I take that back. They did some season preview stuff at the end and Tamra goes batshit. This will be REALLY bad for her custody situation. Thoughts?
