Why does Peggy want to act like she is fresh of the boat. She was born in Kuwait or somewhere and moved to the US when she was a year old. This “I am not familiar with anything American” schtick is just ridiculous.
Steve must be a saint. He not only puts up with Vicki, but he seems quite fond of Brianna’s boys despite the fact they seem completely out of control.
I really don’t care about her magazine launch.
Dueling Baby Store Scenes
I had to fast forward through the scene with Vicki and Kelly. I can’t with the gagging. Both scenes were ridiculous.
Tamra’s Peace Treaty Meeting With Shannon and Kelly
I forgot to mention that Shannon announced today she is opening a restaurant. It will be called 9 Lemons or some such. I don’t know why all of these housewives think they have what it takes to open a restaurant. And Shannon is clearly off her rocker and going through the change. She can’t handle having dinner in a restaurant without throwing plates, let alone own a restaurant.
There are so many flashbacks this season. It seems like an awful lot of filler is stuffed into every episode just like they all stuff it in their faces. Neither kind of filler makes anything better.
Anyway, in between long flashback filler scenes, Kelly tries to explain that she didn’t think they would be at The Quiet Woman. Seriously, how much longer do we have to talk about that scene? Kelly brings up Vicki and says she feels badly for her the corrects herself to include all of them. Kelly says she has never heard Vicki say anything about their families to her. Shannon still maintains that Vicki was lying about the domestic violence charges. Shannon is the one who is lying, David plead guilty and it was all over social media. Shannon continuous saying “David doesn’t beat me.” She is the one who keeps bringing it up. She also blames Vicki for her weight gain, again. I don’t think the peace pipe was actually smoked at this pow wow.
Meghan’ Sip and See
Clearly, production didn’t clearly understand what a Sip and See is for her to accurately explain it to her nanny. It’s just so odd that someone who is not southern is suddenly having one. NTTAWWT, it just seems out of place. Meghan seems kind of bitchy since she had her baby. Tamra and Vicki both think that millennials invented the Sip and See. I can’t with these people. Sip and See’s are a very old timey thing that doesn’t happen that much anymore except on reality shows that appropriate cultural customs with no clue what they are talking about.
So everyone arrives at the party and Vicki, Kelly, Lydia and Peggy sit outside so that Kelly can tells them about the not exactly peaceful meeting between Kelly, Tamra and Shannon. Tamra and Shannon are totally out numbered this season so they are really going to have to be the ones that give. Tamra and Shannon arrive last. Vicki says that they need to be classy ladies and move on. There is a lot more sipping than there is seeing at this shindig. Meghan, Tamra and Shannon start to go outside to mingle with the other four but never really get there. Everyone splinters off, Shannon goes to the food, Vicki goes for some wine, Tamra guzzles champagne, everyone wants the other person to approach them and apologize and that is just not going to happen.
Meghan, who thinks a sip and see is simply another opportunity for presents, starts opening hers as if it is a shower with everyone forced to sit on the couch and watch her. A sip and see gift, if you bring one at all is usually something for the mother. A small token. A cooked meal. Something to make her life easier. A candle regifting would work here. There was an oddly high number of pregnant women standing around the sofa. It was weird. Where did they come from and why don’t they plant themselves somewhere?
I thought we were done, and no one was going to say a word, But Lydia has some sort of speech she wants to give. The speech is basically that she is having a launch party and she was waiting to see if they could all behave in public before inviting them. Wow, that’s a lovely invitation.
Tamra and Shannon stay behind so that Shannon can enjoy the free food a drink a bit longer. They talk to Meghan who wants to meet with Vicki and see if she can clear the air with her. She always wants to talk to her about why Vicki feels like the victim. Tamra calls Vicki trash, like shit on the bottom of her shoe. Vicki says she wants to punish Shannon and Tamra for not being her friend.
I kept waiting for this episode to start, and it really never did. Sorry the recap is so boring. I didn’t have much to work with tonight.
