Andy of course starts right away with a speed round of questions about Naomie’s nose job. He shows a before and after photo. Many people on social media were unhappy with the procedure because it made her look more cookie cutter and less ethic. Join that discussion here. Since I have such poor face recognition skills, I don’t see a lot of difference. Naomie says she has wanted a nose job since she was eight years old. Wow, that is sad and says a lot about her upbringing and her view of herself. She is thrilled with the results. She would consider having more work done. She had spoken about it the entire time she and Craig were dating. He did not want her to do it and actually cried when she did. Naomie says that she doesn’t believe that he cried and that was just a dig at him. Bullshit. Then she said Craig really didn’t cry that much in their relationship. More bullshit. Craig is very sensitive and she is very mean. Andy doesn’t seem to believe her either.
They talk about Austen’s breakup with Victoria. Victoria asked Chelsea if it was okay for her to date him since she was not interested in him and Chelsea was fine with it. Austen didn’t forsee it being an issue for that reason. Andy asked if Victoria had a right to be jealous or suspicious of Chelsea. He says he doesn’t think so. Andy asked how he would feel if Chelsea started dating Shep or Craig? He clearly did not like to even think about that. There is a good chance that Austen’s new girlfriend is in the audience. I think her name is Meaghan if I remember correctly and she is a makeup artist who has worked with people on the show in the past. She’s very cute and seems to fit right in with the crowd.
Andy plays a segment called “Say It Like You NAOM MEAN IT! ” a montage of Naomie saying mean things to people. Andy asks her a bunch of meaningless questions about Craig. Like what did you think of him stabbing himself with a butter knife. She answered most of them with “typical Craig.”
Next they talk about Ashley begging Thomas to marry her and her interactions with Thomas alone. They are both freaked out by her. Austen says it is “chill-worthy.” They both have trouble finding the words to describe how scary she is.
Naomie says at Hilton Head she could see Ashley taking lots of shots of tequila and revving herself up and she was very concerned and then when she started in on Kathryn it was just shocking. Austen says the small part we saw wasn’t even half of it. It was so much worse.
Again with the weird hints about Ashley’s behavior at the reunion. Naomie says she remembers the look on Andy’s face, “It was like, wow.” Austen said “It was different than I ever thought that it would be because I though she was going to come out and we were going to be like snarling dogs. And it kind of changed a little bit.” “Yeah…”said Naomie. “It was interesting,” said Andy. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Naomie seems to not have any communication at all with Craig anymore and seems a bit angry about the whole thing. Austen despite spending last weekend with Shep and Craig in the Hamptons, didn’t want to say anything much to support him while sitting next to Naomie.
Neither of them had any clue that Shep and Kathryn had hooked up after Kensie was born. That’s because I don’t believe it happened.
Peyton still lives in Mt. Pleasant and Naomie hangs out with her sometimes on Sunday Funday and thinks she is cool.
On the after show, Naomie says that seeing herself be a crazy bitch to Craig all season has helped her in her new relationship and been very therapeutic. I have some thoughts and rumors about her very good-looking Indian doctor friend that I shall keep to myself. He is really hot though.
Andy asked if they were surprised that Ashley and Thomas were still together at the reunion. Austen said he was shocked at the way she was defending him. They both said the reunion was “kind of scary” and Andy agreed.
Austen says his beer business is coming right along. He is not going to employ anyone from the cast though. Andy said he had some of Austen’s beer at the reunion and it was really, really, really, good. He talked a bit about licensing but did not mention a name. Perhaps we will find out at the reunion.
