Well, at least we are in Cannes. I still don’t really know who is who on this show, so apologies in advance.We begin with Gizelle and Karen having a blow out fight in the lobby of this very nice hotel in front of a ton of people. I think Americans should all have to take an etiquette course on International travel before receiving a passport. This is simply embarrassing to the entire country” Candiance (?) said, “The white people are staring.”
While Gizelle and Robyn see the sights and walk on the waterfront like normal people, the rest of these fools are stuck going to some sort of essential oils factory. Sadly, Robin and Gizelle don’t make any attempts to speak French so the crepe lady doesn’t respond with English. Well, she did at first but they didn’t understand her then either. Meanwhile, at the oil shop, Charrisse uses the only French phrase she knows, “Voulez-vous couchez avec moi?” with the two male proprietors. The oil distillery is incredibly boring.
Gizelle tells Robyn the exact opposite of what really went down in the lobby. Eventually these two are forced to hook up with the other girls. At least they missed the essential oils place. The town with the perfumery is adorable. It’s called Grasse. I definitely want to go there. At the perfumery we see exciting things like putting perfume in a bottle. The owner gives them all a free candle. It doesn’t look like they bought a thing.
Eventually we get to a dinner so the ladies can go after each other. Karen actually tries to make amends with Gizelle and then things go way south. Karen is not wearing her wedding rings and Gizelle throws that out there. Karen says she doesn’t feel like wearing her rings right now. That could well be true. I wear nothing but gold studs and sometimes my bangles when I travel. Then I buy cheap, unusual costume jewelry to wear on vacation. Ashley calls bullshit on Karen and immediately calls her a liar. Why must these women make me defend Karen. If she wanted to discuss the state of her marriage with these bitches she would. But if I were her, I would not tell them a thing. Why is Ashley so into Karen and Ray’s marriage? Ashley says that Ray told her he is packing up and moving to Florida and whether Karen comes or not is her choice. Karen insists that she and Ray are fine. Ray just wants to move to Florida to retire. Karen likes Maryland and her parents are there. Eventually, even Gizelle says that Karen has a lot on her plate and drops it.
Ashley is a little shit stirrer on this trip. As soon as the first fire is put out, she light another one between Monique and Charrisse. She claims Charrisse has said terrible things about Monique. Ashley says that Charrisse said that maybe Gizelle had a point when it came to Monique using Charrisse’s contacts to get in the in crowd in Potomac. Charrisse says Ashley is a bold-faced liar. Then Robyn and Gizelle pounce on Monique for inviting Kyndell to her event. Monique says it was actually Charrisse that invited Kyndell. Now that Gizelle is pissed at Charrisse.
Meanwhile, the restaurant has closed and the waiter is politely asking them to GTFO. But of course they still have some arguing to do. Candiance is mad at Gizelle and Monique for laughing at her last week when she tried to share how her relationship is hard with the white boy because she’s famous. Eventually, the poor waiter gets them out the door.
The next day, Candiance is having a spot of tea with Karen and tells her that she feels like the other girls don’t take her seriously. Karen says she tried to tell her not to share personal information with these women and she did it anyway. Candiance says they are vultures. Meanwhile, Robyn and Ashley are by the pool laughing. Charrisse arrives to the table with Karen and Candiance. Charrisse says that Candiance talks about herself too much and the whole pageant queen thing is ridiculous. Candiance cries.
Monique invites Gizelle over to her suite for breakfast. Gizelle doesn’t really want to go but the whole film crew is there and there will be chocolate crepes! Gizelle may be in her hotel robe but she has a full face of makeup and super heavy eyelashes on.. They argue some more about Kyndell. Gizelle is not open to reconciliation. We end with her saying to Monique “You took a shot and you missed. If I take a shot, I’m like a ninja in the cut waiting to take someone’s face off.”
Next week: More brawling in Cannes. At least the scenery is pretty.
