When I woke up this morning, Relationship was on my TV. I try not to watch things before recapping them, but I was too lazy to change the channel. This is a shit show. It’s clear none of these women are into Shep. These women just want to be on TV. For me, pretending to date Shep is a high price to pay for being on television.
On this episode, Summer showed up, refusing to accept the fact that Shep didn’t even want to pretend to like her for the cameras. Shep decides to have Sarah turn her away at the door and send her to a hotel in Charleston.
Arden says she’s had enough of Relationshep and is ready to go home to Boston.
Peyton gets drunk and lets Shep know what we are all thinking. The fact that he is pushing 40 and thinks a 21 (and 22, and 23) year old is a wise choice for someone to settle down with is laughable. Shep is mystified by the concept, and he’s also pissed. How dare she point out dating someone half his age is a bad reflection on him. In public! The next day, Shep takes Peyton out for lunch and lectures her. Peyton showed him a side of her that he didn’t want to see. You know, that side where she points out he’s still acting like a douche. At lunch he explains that his mother would never disagree with his father in public. And that public conversation is for rednecks. Peyton just needs to keep it classy for Shep. You know Shep, he’s the guy who came to lunch without showering or shaving. He said his mom would say he looks like a ragamuffin. He doesn’t know what the word means. It seems his vast literary background does not include Dickens. A ragamuffin is a homeless street child. It is the perfect description of what Shep looks like on every date. He looks like he smells bad.
Kylie is starting to worry that she might miss Miss USA this year for this dumb show and wonders if it is worth it.
Priscilla the spicy Brazilian is trying to keep this ship afloat, bless her heart. She’s a grown woman with opinions and thoughts. We all know that is not going to work for Shep.
Bella is backing out of this and blaming a pressing work commitment. They are dropping like flies.
The saddest part of this episode was seeing Elizabeth and JD at Elizabeth’s birthday party. Elizabeth said he needs to pick someone who will stand by him no matter what. This was filmed before she discovered that JD was draining her bank accounts, putting his inheritance up his nose, and the Gentry went belly up. ALLEGEDLY.
The good news is that there are only two episodes left.
