I am so excited for this Barcelona trip y’all. I really hope we get to see a lot of the city instead of just these fools behaving badly. While they were there, there was a lot of unrest on the streets because an election was being held to decide of Catalonia, the region of Spain where Barcelona is would secede from the country of Spain and become an independent nation. They actually did vote to secede but Spain declared the election illegal and there was a lot of political drama and police crackdowns going on in the area. It was just as dramatic as a housewives dinner over there and tourists were told to avoid many areas of the city at that time.
It appears that most of them have not been to Barcelona. I am not sure if I have either. Mother was particularly fond of Madrid so we went there more than once. Cynthia has sort of a treasure hunt challenges of things to do in Barcelona. They are stupid things like pinch a guy on the butt and do a shot with a stranger. Le sigh. Marlo starts off on her etiquette lessons again. She did the same shit on the trip to Africa. Production gives a montage of Marlo’s horrific behavior over the years.
In other shade, Nene goes on and on about all of Kim Biermanns’s illnesses, particularly the fake cancer. I think this was not one of the first things they filmed the way they are trying to make us believe. I believe Eva came on a flight after the other ladies. They do not seem to have their rooms yet, but they are having a dinner. I am going to stop trying to understand the order of these scenes and just suspend all disbelief and go with the flow. Except that Nene had a necklace on in the car with Cynthia that she filmed after the trip last week that she does not have on this week.
Kandi announces that Nene is going to go on tour with her and host the show and do some of her comedy/trash talking. We all know that got cancelled very quickly after Nene told a heckler at one of her shows that she hopes she gets raped by an Uber driver on her way home.
Eva also tells us about her now fiance, who she says has been her little girls father since he came into her life. He ex is a real piece of work who can’t seem to deal with someone else raising his child. He lost his damn mind when she announced she was pregnant.
Was that Shamea who asked Eva if her boyfriend minded if she dated girls? She is REALLY nervous about Eva coming for that peach that Shamea has been begging for the past few seasons. This seems just so out of character for Shamea though. Cynthia makes a joke about dipping in the lady pond with Kandi. Kandi says we will know when it happens because she will start defending her just like she defends Will now. Thew women are already getting too messy. Cynthia refuses to listen to Porsha and Eva about Will. Cynthia has a point with Porsha though. She has told her a lot of lies.
Much to the dismay of tourists and locals alike, Shamea does a “holy dance” in front of a church to scratch something off Cynthia’s Treasure Hunt/Bucket List.
By the time the ladies check into Villa Victoria, it is already dark. They are greeted by a couple who demonstrates a Flamenco dances. I was unimpressed by the dance. I mean there were not even any castanets involved. The ladies were not impressed by the Villa at all. As Porsha says, “it is cute.” The arguments begin for the rooms. Kandi got the best room. Somehow, Nene keeps saying she is hosting the trip. Actually, Cynthia is the pretend host. Nene wants Kandi’s room. Kandi is not having it.
Sheree calls Kim with Porsha and Shamea and tells her that Nene said she can’t be without her husband. Porsha says that she just found out that she was a cancer survivor. What shit stirrers these two are. Kim goes out of a mind and starts talking about the roaches. So Kim sends the roach video to everyone just before dinner.
At dinner, Marlo brings a blonde wig to go in Kim’s place. Even though Nene tried to say she and Cynthia should get the best rooms because they are the “most mature” she has a fit when people refer to her as the elders. So I loved when someone asked who was going to give the blessing and Shamea suggested that one of the elders should do it. Why does Marlo Hampton think she can come for Kandi Burruss? Girl, have several seats. At dinner everyone gets the text from Kim Biermann with the roaches.
Kandi says in a talking head that ever since Kim said her house was in the hood (it’s not) she is not welcome in her home anymore.
Sheree says that “we called Kim” and makes sure that Porsha and Shamea get in on the culpability for her actions. Nene goes ballistic and starts throwing fuck bombs everywhere. Eva looks like she just wants to go to her room.
These women can’t even enjoy Barcelona.
Next Week: The women demand that Shereé keep Kim in check; Porsha wreaks havoc on the streets of Barcelona; Cynthia gets over her man problems by taking a dip in the lady pond; the trip comes to a surprising end for one of the ladies. AKA Porsha was sent home early. Porsha continues to deny this.
