Tonight’s episode title seems to place the blame directly on the boys this week when things to south with Thomas and Kathryn, Craig and Naomie return to fake TV therapy and Shep interferes with Chelsea’s relationship with Austen.
We’re going to start with dueling Kathryn and Thomas scenes. I need someone to remind me why I dislike JD because I have forgotten and I am falling for his act a bit this season. His restaurant looks amazing, he knows how to dress like a Southerner. I have forgotten what is wrong with him. Thomas meets him at his Bar and Grill for some good ole boy talk. Thomas acts like he is being very gracious to allow the kids to take photos with their mother. JD let’s Thomas know that Landon is not the best choice for a romantic interest.
In the Kathryn scene, Cameran has done a complete turn around on Kathryn and going shopping with her to help pick out clothes for the kids to wear in a photo shoot. She recently posted a couple of photos from the photo shoot on her Instagram while when she had the kids this past weekend and all hell broke lose because people thought she was posting old pictures to make it seem like she had the kids. Nope. The kids were there eating junkfood as usual and she posted the photos from that weekend as well. So this is three weekends that the schedule has been followed.
Landon’s father tries to encourage Landon to get into the real estate field. Since he is a developer, this is a no brainer. She recently posted that she was taking the test to get her real estate license. She is not thrilled with this idea because she has to actually work if she does that. That said, the realtor exam is difficult. I doubt she can pass.
Cameran goes to visit Shep who has been furiously cleaning up after his latest frat party. She is once again encouraging him to go after Chelsea. He points out that Chelsea is with Austen. She says that she and Shep both have insecurities about getting hurt in the relationship. Shep says his issue is his concern with hurting other people. Then he explains that he doesn’t care about anyone. What was the point of this scene? And who at Bravo thought Shep could carry his own show?
The editing of this episode is the worst every. The weird scene with Shep and Cameron was stuck in between the scene of Cameran going to meet Kathryn and Chelsea and arriving at the baby clothes store. While Cameran’s chat with production has her being very sweet to Kathryn, we get a talking head of Kathryn that was clearly shot after things go down hill where Kathryn is dismissive of Cameran. I will be paying special attention to Kathryn’s confessionals in the long-sleeved blue outfit. You should too.
As it turns out we are not picking out clothes for the kid’s photo shoot, we are picking out clothes for Kathryn to wear in the photo shoot. Also, Cameran is helping herself to champagne as Kathryn goes into the fitting room. Cameran and Kathryn discuss whether they should off Kathryn wine. Chelsea says they probably should not be drinking in front of her. Cameran says she’s just going to live her life. Chelsea suggests that Cameran do a sexy photo shoot as a gift to her husband before she gets pregnant and her body goes to shit. Cameran invites the girls to party in Key West. Then Chelsea and Cameran encourage Kathryn to buy the ugliest dress in the store.
Austen and Chelsea have a weird scene in Austen’s car. Chelsea tells Austen that Shep grabbed her in the bar the night before and tried to kiss her several times. Austen was there with the group when this happened. Austen is pissed. She says that Shep was trash talking Austen and trying to get with her. Austen has plans with Shep and Whitney later that night.
Later, Austen and Craig bond over their hatred for Shep. Then Whitney and Shep arrive for the guys night out. Shep doesn’t deny a thing about the situation with Chelsea. He says he was doing it as a test for Austen’s benefit. Whitney defends Shep. Craig defends Austen and mentions that Shep tried to sleep with Naomie. Then Shep blames Cameran for pushing him toward Chelsea. Shep doesn’t remember telling Craig that Chelsea was just slumming with him. Shep is storming off like he is the victim. He’s offended that Austen repeated the stuff that Shep said. Shep can’t remember what he does or says when he drinks. And he is always drinking.
Thomas shows up with the kids to the photo shoot. Why are they not showing Saint? He was totally there but is not being shown. Did anyone else freak out that Chelsea was spraying hairspray like there was no tomorrow while Kensie sat in Kathryn’s lap? Why can’t anyone ever just brush Kensie’s hair? Kensie pitches a fit when it is over and clearly wants to leave with Kathryn. That is heart breaking. Kensie is literally kicking and screaming as Thomas puts her in the car. Kathryn has a breakdown.
Long rehashing of the Shep situation with Cameran and Chelsea. No one cares about Shep. Why is this a storyline.
Craig and Naomie go to counseling. Naomie greets Craig with “Did you just wake up?” As Craig says, that was a low blow right off the bat. Craig tells a story of Naomie making a joke at his expense. In the flashback the joke was totally scripted. Just like this therapy. This is all make believe. These two are happy as claims on their Instagram. Basically, Craig is the battered wife in this fake scene. It’s not nice and I don’t want to see it.
Later, Shep and Cameran talk and Shep admits he doesn’t remember what he did. Cameran points out Shep has entitlement issues. Cameran says that Shep is jealous of Austen. Shep adamantly denies it.
Next Week: The Shep saga continues. I am not interested. Kathryn tells Cameran that Landon and Thomas took the Valentines Day trip to London that she and Thomas planned together. The gang goes to Key West. Landon is confronted for placing her vagina on a platter for Thomas. Craig has had enough of Naomie’s put downs. Everyone, including Kathryn gets drunk.
