Sorry to for the delay. I am still working with ad reps to bring you even more ads (sorry) and the spam folder keeps randomly filling up again and I am trying to get content up and dealing with a family crisis that may end up pulling me away for the day or longer. We shall see. I am going to try to get this up while I am waiting for a response from the ad folks. Bless their hearts. I know they are just as frustrated with me. Anyway.
Side note: As rich as Shannon is, it pains me that she doesn’t seem to be a jewelry person. I’d love to see what she is into but basically it doesn’t seem to appeal to her.
It sounds like production tested Gretchen to come back for at least an appearance this season because Shannon lets the cat out of the bag that Gretchen was at her charity event at the beginning of the season. The bartender is a RHOBH producer there to plug a book. I say give her a chair, I’d love to ask her some questions!
Andy asks the most offensive questions. When introducing his guest, Gretchen, first compliments her on her hair, and then asks her what percentage of it is actually hers? Who does that?
So they show a clip of next week. Tamra is telling Shannon and Meghan that she met with Brooks and Vicki and he showed her his most recent PET/CT scan. Then we see a talking head of Meghan saying she called the place Brooks had the scan and they stopped doing them in 2008. Then we see a clip of Shannon going, “oh wow.” The editing is ridiculous. How does Meghan know where Brooks got his scan? She didn’t see the report Tamra did. Why is no one asking about this?
Andy asks Shannon the current state of her relationship with Vicki. She says they are not speaking. He asks if she thinks it will ever be the same, she says no. WOW. Andy asks about the whole thing where Vicki says she didn’t ask Shannon for help. Shannon says she did but it doesn’t matter because she would have helped anyway. Gretchen is whispering next to her (about Vicki) “she’s a liar…”
Andy asks what is going on with Gretchen’s never-ending engagement and seems to imply that it only serves to reinforce the opinion from the end of her season that the engagement was faked for the show. What WHUT people fake things for the show? She says when they put the date of May 23 out there they didn’t realize it was Memorial Day weekend. Was that not right there on whatever calendar they wrote the words “wedding day” on ? She said so many family members already had vacations planned so they decided to reschedule. then Slade got booked to go do a mini series in Mexico? Um, what? And she tries to continue on with her laundry lists of excuses and Andy is just like okay, I got it. It’s complicated. She says Slade’s finances are getting better. She still wants babies. She doesn’t hang out with Alexis anymore. Tamra still hates her. Gretchen says she is BFF’s with Tamra’s ex-BFF Ricky who gives her all the dirt of Tamra. AND THEN SHANNON DEFENDS TAMRA TO GRETCHEN and says that Ricky is not accurate. Gretchen says there is a lot of proof there. What the hell has to happen between now and the reunion for Shannon to be on Tamra’s side and not speaking to Vicky while Tamra is once again friends with everyone including Shannon and Vicki??!?!?
Andy asked Gretchen what she would like to say about the season. Gretchen claims she has only seen the clips on Bravo TV and then proceeds to outline the entire season. She says, “The truth is, is that Vicki and Tamra clearly had do much to say about my relationship with Jeff and beat me up all the time and I was harassed about that and I just find it so interesting that Vicki is not coming on the show with a family member of cancer when they said I shouldn’t be on the show with somebody that’s sick with cancer. They also had a lot of false accusations about me and now Vicki is in that same hotseat. So part of me feels compassionate toward her and at the same time part of me feels that karma has shown up and her name is Meghan.”
Am I allowed to purple pen my on posts? Because, Gretchen, you came on the show with a rich boyfriend with cancer who you were trying to get to marry you on his deathbed and taking expensive gifts from and then running off to party at the lake with your girlfriends on camera. Brooks is not a family member. He doesn’t have the money Vicki has. He is someone who she has been dating off and on for four years whose cancer returned while filming the show. Vicki seems seriously concerned for his health and is closing herself off to her “friends” who bring more drama into the situation. The only similarities in the two situations are that someone had cancer and Tamra was shit stirring about it in both seasons.
Andy asks Shannon if she has found peace and forgiveness with her husband. She flashes a big smile and says, “absolutely.” It looked genuine to me. David and Slade are both there. Andy says Slade has lost 15 pounds. Gretchen is surprised and says he didn’t tell her that, and that is “awesome”! And she wonders why people think the engagement is fake.
A caller asks Gretchen if Slade has a job. She says yes, and he has always had a job he just went though a very difficult time like everyone in the country did who lost their job. So wait, what? He’s always had a job but he lost his job? And he filmed a Mexican mini-series while having a job? Andy is like what is his job? She says he is working for a tech company right now. She’s a terrible liar and she seemed pissed that Andy asked the question.
A caller asks Shannon if she knows why Vicki and Brooks broke up. She says not really because she was not speaking to Vicki when it happened. She thinks they have always had issues back and forth and based on history she thinks they will get back together. She has no inside information.
Apparently during the break, Shannon and Gretchen had an argument. Andy says they just got into it like two cats in a bag! Andy tries to make them talk about it on camera and they don’t want to. Gretchen says the they had a difference of opinion about Tamra. Andy says that Gretchen told Shannon she drank the Kool-Aid. Shannon says she doesn’t drink Kool-Aid. Gretchen says she asks Shannon why she doesn’t like Ricky. Shannon said she thinks he is a pot stirrer. Gretchen said Tamra is the biggest pot stirrer of them all. Shannon says she thinks Tamra has changed. Gretchen says then it is obvious you are drinking the Kool-Aid. I think that Shannon but be on a Kool-Aid IV drip.
A viewer asks why Shannon would trust Tamra again after all she put her through last year. Shannon says that she has seen a transformation this year and she believes Tamra has changed and they are very close. Oh, Shannon. Then Shannon says she is a very good judge of character. Clearly, when she was besties with the bitch fucking her husband, and Brooks, and Vicki, and David, and Heather…. Oh Shannon, poor deluded Shannon. She is going to completely meltdown over this once all is revealed.
Andy points out that Gretchen was in the same position with Tamra. That didn’t go to well.
Someone asked how the show affected her marriage. She says that the show has made their marriage stronger. David cheers and applauds from the tiny audience.
Andy asks Gretchen her opinion of Brooks and the cancer thing. She says she gets asked that all day long on social media. She says she is not doctor and she has no idea, but she does say there is a lot of shady shade coming out of what is happening. She said when Jeff was sick, she wanted help from everyone, and if someone was questioning it she would have brought out the medical records in 5.2 seconds. She doesn’t blame the other ladies for questioning it.
Finally a game so I can check my emails again. Sonja Morgan shows up because the game involved three hot guys in their underwear. She passes out the prizes and then takes one of the 22 year olds for herself. Andy points out that she came to the show with a 22 year old. She says, “I’m busy.”
A caller asks about Slade’s brother Kent. Gretchen says he is great and he cut his mullet!
A commenter asks Shannon how she felt when he kid said she was the queen of fun at drinking? Shannon seems to stutter. She says her daughter meant when she goes out. She doesn’t drink much at all at home.
A caller asks Shannon why Meghan is making it her life’s mission to prove that Brooks has cancer when it is ultimately none of her business? Shannon says she definitely has CIA and FBI in her blood. She just wants to find out the truth. She says Meghan goes way deeper than she ever would but she can’t answer for why Meghan does it.
Poll Question: Should Brooks disclosure is medical records to a bunch of cunts on a reality show? 66% of idiots polled said yes.
Andy’s Mazel is for Jackie Collins and he plays of montage of her WWHL appearances.
