A commenter in another post reminded me that Claudia is paying me big bucks to recap this show (and we are also best friends!) so I guess I better get on this recap! I missed last week’s episode, but you can see my terribly biased recaps on The Next :15 here where I say things like, “I’m not sure I am going to stick with this show.” Clearly, I was just angling for a raise.
I’m also going to try to make this one much faster as I have tons of other shows to recap and I’d like to not miss the weekend entirely. I missed the last episode entirely so I really am not sure what is going on other than New York drama. OMG! They started with a funny as hell scene with New York and Claudia and now we have to rewind all the way to the beginning! DAYUM!
So we start with a recap anyway. Claudia meets with the rest of the team to tell them about New York’s crazy assed behavior. Have these people not seen New York before? This is just her normal Tuesday demeanor. Laura and Jennifer both threaten to leave because they have done enough ratchet. Claudia talks everyone down. She wants to give New York one more chance. Benzino seems to be halfway out the door as well.
LOL Laura is going to meet with her “anger management” teacher. She says she doesn’t have anger issues. The judge saw things otherwise. She tells the dude, “I went to beat him up and hit on him…” #Rachet Laura wants to pretend to buy an expensive car on camera. Which is dumb for so many reasons. Karamo tries to point this out to her, but she’s not listening.
Jennifer wants to cut a demo with Benzino. Problem is, she can’t sing. Benzino is hilarious in his talking heads. I feel sorry for him because he’s the only straight male on this show, and everyone uses him as a sounding board. Basically, Jennifer and Claudia don’t like each other.
I’ve only ever seen Benzino on Marriage Boot Camp. I have to say he is quite funny on this show. He made a surf and turf with two dinner plates one is for Althea who is joining him on Facetime.
Messy Carlos goes to see New York at her regular job, which is apparently introducing drag queens, and tells her to show up at Claudia’s housewarming and tell her that she wants to be executive producer.
Jennifer and Claudia meet to clear the air. For some reason it turns into a very personal therapy session for Claudia about things I wish I could unhear and don’t want to discuss.
Claudia’s welcome to LA shindig is not a housewarming unless she lives in a parking lot. I have no clue what I am watching now. New York showed up with two armed goons. Which is probably wise in this neighborhood. Benzino wants to know which side of the orange cones the VIP section is on. There are red solo cups and Styrofoam coolers. I’d say it was ghetto, but I live in the ghetto and we would do better than this.
Claudia shows in a tiara and evening gown with her head sticking out of a sunroof. Things are getting klassy now. Apparently, it’s “homecoming” theme, not a housewarming theme. New York asks to be an executive producer. She wants the title without the work. Claudia laughs but this has worked for others on reality shows. This time however, it’s not.
So there is a ridiculous scene in the parking lot that makes Porsha Williams look educated and civilized. I can’t even be bothered to explain. I am probably going to save these episodes for when I fall off the wagon.
Are y’all watching?
