Have we all gotten our beauty rest from last week’s snoozefest…oops I mean episode? Yea? Good, let’s get into it then.
Ashley has finally gotten her mom out of her relationship and that should mean its smooth sailing from here on out but apparently she signed a 3 year prenup that is about up and she has to re-sign to extend. I wasn’t aware that prenups could have those types of clauses. You learn something new everyday!
OHHH Gizelle is doing the vampire facial!! I am obsessed with crazy beauty treatments that I cannot afford. Gizelle brings Robyn along so they can talk about her birthday party guest list and Sherman’s status. Like we suspected Sherman does not like the limelight. Understandable Housewives are not the most savory of reality tv franchises and if Sherman has real business dealings he may not want to be in people magazine or he may have tax issues he doesn’t want anyone to look into. Both of these things are possible.
Monique’s mom does really look like her sister. Black does not crack go head momma Monique. She and her random friend who I am not going to learn her name since we will probably not see her after this episode are trying on cast away Miss America dresses for some gala where she was invited to present an award. I know she is trying to step out of the shadow of her husband but do you think some of these events are inviting her because they know her husband’s money comes along with her presence? Is that too cynical or am I right on the money?
Robyn’s MLM scheme, I mean her woman’s empowerment event is coming up. She Is Empowered is apparently a dinner series where professionals will give you the tools to build your business and brand. Everyone these days has a brand chile. Took a look at the website, couldn’t find out about any of the speakers but if you are interested the next dinner in the “series” is in Beltsville MD (I live in Baltimore and have no clue where Beltsville is so there’s that) in August. Can someone go and report back I would love to know what kind of food they serve and which house wife is going to show up or not…
Back in Candace mother’s house. I am calling it such since she pops by all the time and needs fresh flowers and catered food. Candace’s living situation just looks worse and worse as the days go on. Where does her sister live? She is trying to open a brick and mortar store for her hair line. Her website doesn’t even work so I can see why Mom would not want to hand over the reins to her just yet.
Ashley is back in her best day time business Barbie dress so she can have a conversation with Michael about her prenup. WHOA WHOA WHOA signing without a lawyer? That makes me so uncomfortable. I understand her not wanting to seem like a gold digger but you need to protect yourself girl. Michael wants her to sign this document without a lawyer but not discuss the document on camera, are these red flags? I am cringing. She signs it anyway.
Gizelle’s birthday party is at a roof top pool and all the ladies are coming wonder who is getting thrown in? The party is real cute after they get past the Monique and Robyn awkwardness. I would do this for my birthday nice low key, friends and flowing drinks what more do you need? Candace was not invited which gives her more time to be at home and work on the 404 error I get when I tried to look on her hair site.
$18k for food and beverage?? I hope that’s caviar wishes and champagne dreams. Chris makes a dark drink for his dark wife. My second cringe of the night, what is with this couple and the skin tone references.
Monique and Robyn are having competing events on the same day and they are now trying to shore up invites (read: loyalty) from the other ladies. So far Monique has Karen and Cherisse and Robyn has Candace and Gizelle leaving Ashley as the tie breaker. Karen does have some nerve, as Robyn notes she did go to all of her off brand events she should probably go to Robyn’s but as Karen rambles about how SIRI changes yay to yes I wouldn’t want her at my event annoying people so maybe Robyn should take this as a win.
Aw look at this the actual housewives getting together with their mates. Ashley for once makes sense, this is Robyn’s event and not something she is just presenting at so of course you she would go to Robyn’s. Robyn wins here. Monique changes the subject and brings up some old info about Sherman getting frisky in a car with a woman that was not his wife at the time. She is really trying to make this a Sherman is cheating on Gizelle issue..
What was supposed to be a double date with Robyn, Juan, Gizelle, and Sherman turned into a threesome. Sherman and Gizelle broke up due to their communication issues. They were going to counseling after only a year in that seems a little early right? When a man says that he needs another perspective I take that to mean he wants to see other people. Damn it I hate to agree with Monique but she might be right Sherman may not want the attention from his relationship with Gizelle because he wants attention from someone else.
Okay, we got some movement this week. Next week we get to see if Ashley’s over the hill husband wants children even though she already signed the extended prenup and if Candace’s roommate comes up with some funding for their wedding.
