We begin with Thomas threatening Kathryn with going to court where all of their dirty laundry will become a matter of public record. Thomas says that if all the facts come out she will never work again. Not sure exactly what he is alluding to there. But the agreement they signed places restrictions on Kathryn’s visitation that indicate that her parenting at present is not reliable.
It’s time to talk about Kathryn’s lack of sympathy for Jennifer at their luncheon. Kathryn still has no sympathy and says that she doesn’t want anything negative in her life and basically everyone owes her an apology. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t that the opposite of what they teach in rehab? Kathryn says that she did apologize. She did not. Then she tries “I am still trying to learn how to handle difficult situations.”
Time to change out Jennifer for Whitney. Andy turns to Thomas to discuss his parenting. Andy says he has gotten a lot of positive feedback. Thomas talks about selling his house to move to a more kid friendly location. Actually, I believe the plan was always to sell that house.
Kathryn starts sobbing.
Thomas explains that he lives in the back house with the kids. Kathryn says he doesn’t under her breath. But he does. He does throw parties in the front house and putters around in the front house, but he sleeps with the kids in the back house. The court sided heavily with Thomas given him full custody of the kids and keeping Kathryn on supervised visitation status with the possibility of unsupervised visitation later.
Shep and Landon argue about Landon’s business meeting in Nantucket. Landon says that the she was sexually harrassed by the people she met with. They talk about Landon’s stupid comments that makes everyone believe she is a gold digger. Landon stupidly doubled down on her “Vail is a truck stop” comment. Landon backtracks on her Valentine’s Day trip with Thomas claiming that it was not Valentine’s Day, as if that even makes a difference. Landon and Kathryn seem to be fine with each other now. Landon took Thomas as her plus one to a wedding in Santa Barbara the weekend before the reunion.
Time for Chelsea to come out. Chelsea says that watching Southern Charm with her family around was a lot harder that watching herself on Survivor. Chelsea says that she likes sober Shep but she rarely sees that person. Cameran tries deny meddling in Chelsea’s relationship. Everyone calls her on that.
I am bored with all of this Austen and Shep and Chelsea crap. I actually got up to refresh my drink and there was a commercial and they are still talking about these three. Kathryn is the only interesting person on this show. Shep’s entitlement issues and womanizing is called out by everyone. Shep seems to shrug it off, at least at first. Austen and Chelsea are not together. But they are still very close.
Finally we talk about Shep being too drunk to fly home. Shep tries to play it off. Austen said he was surprised TSA let him through security. Shep told Austen to shut his mouth! Then Shep plays it off as he was saying that is what he did to get through airport security. I believe he was flagged on his connecting flight out of Atlanta. It is damn near impossible to be too drunk or fly on Delta out of Atlanta. Don’t ask me how I know this. He had to be behaving very badly and not just drunk off his ass.
They talk about Shep not feeling anything for anyone. I believe the technical term for that is sociopath. Shep says he has low moments but he is happy. He is full of shit. He looks terrible and miserable and stoned. Then he goes in on Craig for always being positive about life. He says he is delusional. Craig says he roots for people and Shep attacks anyone who is content. Shep says that Craig just wants to be told he is great all the time. Craig is astonished, as am I, that Shep doesn’t think he is a bully.
Andy talks about all the chemistry between Thomas and Kathryn. It really is noticeable. Sometimes all that chemistry explodes in negative ways though. It can be extremely frustrating. Don’t ask me how I know this, either.
Is it just me? Or was this a boring reunion?
