Off to a late start since the Southern Charm reunion saved anything remotely interesting for the lat five minutes of the show. I’m just going to take this one slow and easy. OMG! I had not watched the trailer for this season and it looks fantastic. I really thought Brett Michaels was on the show and it was Shannon! I am all in for this season!
We start with a significantly large Shannon playing outside with her daughters and their new dog, Archie. Somehow it is the dogs fault than he doesn’t know the limits of the property and starts taking off down a steephill. Screaming bad dog at a dog running away is not how to address this situation.
Shannon is literally blaming her weight gain on Vicki announcing that David was arrested for domestic violence during a scene last season. David on the other hand seems to have lost weight. Shannon is already crying in her talking heads. It seems despite the vow renewal there is trouble in paradise again. I can’t take another season of this shitty marriage. I do feel for her weight gain though. It is a very hard situation to be in, especially when you’ve never had much of a weight problem.
Coto Insurance is expanding to an even larger office that Vicki is designing. Kelly drops by to visit and Vicki points out that Tamra’s gym that has an empty parking lot is right on the way to her office. These two have not spoken to Tamra or Shannon since last season. We get a clip of the bus ride from hell. That scene was literally the worst thing I have seen on a housewives show and that is saying a lot. And it was the last impression we will have of Heather Dubrow. Both Tamra and Kelly have hinted that Heather was actually fired. I know that Andy Cohen is not happy with Heather or Terry. He made one of his snide remarks on his radio show about not watching Botched. I think that Heather just asked for a lot more money and Bravo wouldn’t pay it. Call that what you will. It worked for Heather just the same way it worked for Nene on RHOA Season 8. At least Heather won’t have to join a multi-level marketing scheme to try to make ends meet. You’ll notice she doesn’t do that anyone once she got back in RHOA.
Vicki and Steve have been dating almost a year. It seems like he is in it for the long haul. Vicki says with Brooks she never knew what he was up to, but with Steve he is very open with her. Briana loves Steve and wants her mom to marry him.
Briana and the boys still live with Vicki. I do not understand why Ryan is still in Oklahoma waiting for a medical discharge. This has been the story for over a year and it just doesn’t make sense. The two boys beat the crap out of each the all day. Because, spoiled.
I have to say the filmography of this franchise is really quiet good. I love the segue scenes between the housewives. Also the opening with all the screaming over a peaceful beach scene was nice.
Oh Lord. Tamra is stopping by Lydia’s bible study. But before the praying they have to gossip about Vicki. Tamra lets Lydia know that Vicki brought up a rumor that Eddie is gay. This is a ridiculous reason to be mad at Vicki. That rumor has been EVERYWHERE since Eddie arrived on the scene. I wonder if the rumors about Tamra cheating on Eddie will come up this season. How will the bible study group deal with that. She says that Kelly is a hot mess. Lydia plans a lunch for these two and Vicki and Kelly. What could possibly go wrong? Later, Eddie advises Tamra not to have lunch with Vicki.
The topic of bible study is times you’ve felt abandoned by God. This is uplifting. Everyone cries and Tamra talks about her daughter. Tamra was at her daughter’s graduation this year, so all of these prayers worked.
Meghan was recently in Hawaii rappelling down waterfalls. Also, if I recall correctly I was told they finally sold their OC house. Her baby girl, Aspen is adorable. Jim is really good with the baby. I think Meghan might still have been in Saint Louis when filming started. This little scene just seemed like filler to make sure she got a full-time check.
Supposedly, Kelly’s gorgeous house on the beach if for sale because he daughter wants a house with a pool like Vicki has. I am not making this up. I think Kelly’s house is the best house on any franchise. I also thought the listing price seemed low but I can’t remember what it was off the top of my head.
Since the last time she was on the show, Lydia has had another boy for a total of three boys between the ages of 2 and 8. Wow. I hope she has like six nannies. I imagine she does because she is very rich. Not like Nene Leakes rich, but VERY RICH, bitch. They have also moved to Newport Beach. She said her mom has taken her pot smoking to another level now that it is legal in California. Lydia and Doug had a ten-year vow renewal recently.
Lydia goes to lunch with Vicki to try to convince her to have lunch with Tamra. Vicki doesn’t seem to be really open to it.
We did not meet Peggy yet, but we will next week. See you then!
