I love how they start the show with Cameran start the show with a sweet but slightly shady recap of the previous episode. And the Charleston scenery is so beautiful to see. But I suppose we have to move on to the fakery and debauchery.
OMG! I am already laughing so hard I could die. Whitney is off to “Europe” for the weekend. Where he might even get to see his “girlfriend” Larrissa. His mommy calls to help him pack, even though he has informed us he does this about every three months. He simply must come to mommy’s to get his tuxedo. As he is relating the information, the camera is panning the room to his guitars and piles of jeans and tees and a ball cap with a rooster and the word cock on it. It seems he is fond of cocks based on those items. He moves on to let us know that he also enjoying hunting for pheasants among many other “numerous and varied’ pursuits. Ibiza is great in the summer, Saint Tropez in the spring. He is going for Winston Churchill’s grandson’s 40th birthday party at Blenheim Palace. This dude is fucking hysterical.
Meanwhile, Thomas and Kathryn are shopping for a bed for their new in town home. Their choice of furniture stores leaves much to be desired at first glance but has a lot of nice stuff. Did Kathryn select an iron bed frame? I like them but they are bad feng shui.
It’s Shep’s 35th birthday which will not be held in a palace and tuxedos will not be in order. I can’t wait. Shep and Whitney chat and Shep comes away thinking if he is still fucking around going to bars and playing in a band at 45 he might as well just shoot himself.
Cameran and Shep go to find a dog for Cameran. It seems to be mostly for the purposes of stalling Cameron’s husband’s plans for a babies soon. Cameran falls in love with a three-legged dog. Cameran only wants one baby. Shep says hell no, it would turn out like Whitney.
Thomas’ campaign storyline farce rages on. His campaign messenger tells Thomas and Whitney (why isn’t his ass off having tea with the Queen? Damn he’s in every scene) about the negative reaction to Thomas’ TV ad. You don’t say. Thomas partying and raising the roof does not appeal to South Carolina voters? Why is Whitney in this meeting ? Whitney is all pissy that his TV ad will not be run. Why isn’t Thomas treating Whiney like an equal partner in their relationship? I fully expected Whitney to look at T-Rav with crazy eyes and scream, “I will not be ignored, Thomas!”
The ladies go to select jewels to wear to Cooper’s ball. The store is kindly going to loan them to them for the evening. But while they are there Cameran encourages Kathryn to try on engagement rings.
Miss Patti calls the boy child because the dog she has bought him has a trainer who has arrived. Whitney has no interest in the dog and doesn’t even live in the same town with the dog, but mommy has summoned him. So he must drop what he is doing and head on over.
Kathryn calls Thomas and offers to drop by with some lunch to break up his stressful day. He doesn’t answer the phone but his campaign manager immediately texts her to say that he is very busy with his campaign and will be unavailable for the next three days. I would already be in my car with a loaded weapon to have a conversation with Amy.
Dear god. Whitney’s dog is some sort of whoopdeedoodle breed who is a truffle hunter. The dog is having issues adjust to Charleston do to the lack of truffles. Based on last year’s pet death count at Chez Altschul, it seems that his future could be a bleak one. Patricia has 7 or 8 urns of cremated pets so she is planning a mausoleum of sorts in the side yard.
Kathryn stops by Craig’s house for a freezer pop. You might think that is a euphemism but it’s not. They are literally eating freezer pops. Kathryn vents to Craig about Amy’s annoying cock blocking.
Thomas decides he is going to stay in a hotel until the debate so he can sleep without the baby waking him up. Kathryn tells Thomas that is fine, then hangs up, cries and calls her mother. Her mother agrees to babysit so she can go to Shep’s party. It would not surprise me for her to see Thomas there.
Craig stops by Katherine to pick her up on the way to the party. Craig is already wasted. I love Kathryn and her talking heads. Cameran wrote Shep an adorable birthday poem. Craig was flirty with drunken Kathryn.
This episode had way too much Whitney and not nearly enough Patricia. I got the feeling she was not feeling well. I hope she perks up by next week’s episode. It’s not the same without her gin swilling and acerbic insults.
Next Week: It’s Cooper’s Ball and Kathryn seems to have been stood up by Thomas, AGAIN.
