I have been in a really good mood since Big Brother started so I am super excited to recap both Southern Charm and RHOOC tonight! I am off to sort of a late start, but I’m churning out my typo ridden recaps ASAP tonight! So thanks for reading. I just going to hit on the major moments because recapping every little thing on a reunion takes a couple of hours.
I am so sick with everyone ganging up on Craig. Shut your damn piehole, Shep. Andy pulls up a scathing tweet that Thomas made about Craig. Thomas is mad at Shep for taking Kathryn’s side in the custody battle. That is why Thomas is being a dick to Craig. Shep is still being an ass to Craig even though Craig stayed behind on the way home from Key West to babysit Shep when he was deemed too drunk to fly.
Naomie comes out to talk about how hard Craig pursued her over the years. I am just so very sick of this Craig stuff. We are 19 minutes in and so far it is the bash Craig show. Craig and Naomie say they reached a low point five weeks ago where they realized they had fallen out of love. Things are good now as they have begun dating and things are much better between them.
Kathryn says that she wishes she had kept more of her relationship with Thomas to herself. She blames Landon and Whitney and others for talking negatively about her to Thomas all the time as the reason their relationship didn’t work out. I agree with her there. The old bat sure did her part in destroy Thomas’ relationship with Kathryn.
For some reason we are talking about how Austen is the nicer, newer version of Shep. Austen lost his beer slinging job. Do we really need to go over the horrifying death of his sister as a child. We move swiftly away from that to talk about Chelsea. I am bored.
We have an entire segment about Shep’s drinking problem. This reunion episode sucks. I am completely caught up and having to watch commercials. This is like watching paint dry. Then the last five minutes will need twenty minutes of recapping.
Finally we get to Kathryn. Andy says she is like a new person. Andy is an idiot. Kathryn says she has been sober for “like eight months” the rest of the cast smirks in disbelief. People I know in recovery never say they have been sober “like a few months.” In the first year they say things like “I’ve been sober for 213 days.” Kathryn just called this site “fake news” I wish she would have mentioned us by name. Apparently any site that reports based on court documents is not to be believed over her proud proclamation of “the truth.” When asked what the most important thing she learned in rehab was she replied that she learned not to be so critical of herself and that she realized that the world is a very cruel place. There is zero accountability on her part for anything.
Andy asked why she made such a big scene at last year’s reunion about failing her drug test when it was already in the press. She says because someone (Thomas) leaked the information. She thinks Thomas told Landon. Landon says she read it online. Kathryn and Landon each accuse the other of lying.
Andy asks why Kathryn ordered a margarita in Key West. She says at the time she was drinking, but she is happy to say she didn’t have a sip. This is Cameran’s face. Everyone looks perplexed by this statement
Landon is shaking her head and Kathryn tells her to stop. Landon says she can do whatever she wants. Kathryn says she’s just asking out of respect. When Shep and Landon point out that Kathryn was up all night drinking in Key West, Kathryn says that her sobriety is for marijuana. Oh Lord. Really Kathryn?
Andy, the self-proclaimed pot head is mystified by this statement. “So your pot use was negatively affecting your life?” he asks. She says it was her drug of choice that she used to escape her reality. No one is buying this at all. Thomas steps in to say he actually scored higher on the blood alcohol test than Kathryn did. Perhaps at the bar in Key West is what he is talking about. A lot of bars down here have breathalyzer machines where you can see if you are too drunk to drive. Unfortunately this leads to a lot of drinking contests among frat boys to see who can blow the highest number so you don’t see many of those anymore.
Next we saw the scene where Kensie cried after the modeling shoot and wanted to leave with her. Kathryn cries and Craig offers her a handkerchief. She does say here that it is difficult for her to know that her children are suffering because of some poor choices she made.
Kathryn says she doesn’t have a good support system. It is hard to trust people. She really doesn’t trust anyone. Landon, who has been arguing with Kathryn in an attempt for screen time realizes that perhaps tears will work better so she cries. When Andy asks her why the hell she is crying she says it’s just so sad, she can’t imagine not being about to trust anyone and rarely seeing her children. Kathryn brings up Jennifer turning on her and giving a deposition about her behavior that was “distorted and wrong.”
That’s the cue to bring out Jennifer. She gives an update on Ascher who is doing great and meeting all his milestones after his surgery as soon as he was born to put his brain back in his skull. Yikes.
Last year at the reunion, Thomas gave Jennifer a handkerchief when she was crying about the situation with Ascher. That pissed Kathryn off to no end. Andy asks why she was so angry. Kathryn’s medication is kicking in now. Kathryn says that Jennifer’s loyalty shifted. She accuses Jennifer of lying under oath. Andy wants to know the nature of Jennifer’s testimony. Kathryn quickly says she is not allowed to talk about that. Jennifer shoots back that she is not under the gag order. FINALLY, things are about to get real. Jennifer tells Andy that she doesn’t want to disclose the personal details about things she knew about but she testified honestly. Kathryn said that Jennifer had said many times that Thomas was not a good guy, but then under oath she said he was a good father. Jennifer said that while she was pregnant with a child that was in a dire situation, Kathryn spread rumors questioning the paternity of her unborn child. Kathryn admits it did it but does not apologize. She admits that she claimed Thomas might be the father of Jennifer’s child. Kathryn said she didn’t know whether Thomas was the father or not. Kathryn said she is not the kind of person who would do that. Then again she says she did spread the and she apologizes. Then she says that she knew that Jennifer had a party one time and Thomas spent the night. Thomas said he wanted to let Kathryn know what it feels like when she would stay out all night. Jennifer doesn’t remember Thomas staying over.
Thomas says that if they get a court order, the facts will come out on Kathryn and she will never work again.
Next week: MOTS.
