Girls! Can you believe it? We’re going to Andales! I don’t recall a cast trip with only three cast members before but I am here for it!
But first, I’m in the minority regarding the drama with Kelly and Vicki. I don’t think it was wrong of Vicki to go out with her man, whose name I can never remember, is it Steve?, on a double date with Michael and his new girlfriend. First of all Steve and Michael became very close during filming. And secondly Kelly could not stand Michael at this time and didn’t care what he was doing. It would be different if Michael left Kelly for another woman and Kelly was at home crying over Michael, but Kelly filed the divorce papers and infidelity wasn’t the reason for the divorce. Why are they hanging her on a cross like Jesus was? Kelly thinks it is the same thing as if Tamra double dated with David Beador. It’s not the same at all.
Speaking of Shannon Beador, Tamra and Vicki are going to Mexico to meet up with Shannon Beador! Las Tres Amigas! Tamra sort of rides the fence with Vicki about the Kelly situation on the way to the airport. Let’s just get to Mexico where shit gets real, quickly!
Once again Kelly’s 12-year-old is being included in all of her drama. This time she’s filling her in on the whole situation with HER FATHER dating someone else and hanging out with Vicki and her beau. This is not okay. Kelly thinks her daughter is her therapist. That’s so wrong. Kelly is going skiing in Aspen with her friends and her daughter during filming season. Why is this allowed?
New girls Emily and Gina go to the park with all of their kids to partake in Stroller Strides where packs of mommies take over a park to exercise while pushing strollers. I’m bored. I hate Gina’s voice. I apologize for saying this every episode but GAWS. Emily’s twins are not in strollers. Clearly they are angry about their buzz cuts. They are adorable boys though.
Shannon’s three daughters are headed back to the OC without her flying solo. I love to see this. Get them starting traveling young. I guess since Shannon was already in the airport with her kids, or perhaps because the rules are different in Mexico, Shannon is able to greet Vicki and Tamra at the end of the Jetway with large obnoxious Mexican Hats and a serving tray with three very large Tequila shots. The whooping it up literally begins the second their feet hit Mexican soil. Ah, She actually was not at the gate. She was at the arrivals area. I was wondering because they were in first and there were a lot of people in front of them. Immediately they all fall down hugging taking the shot glasses and tray down with them. Security has to intervene to help them not kill themselves. Vicki apparently peep her pants. Good Grief. Can’t these people travel anywhere without making a spectacle of themselves?
The three of them waste no time getting to Andales. I would never leave that gorgeous suite. Y’all I drink A LOT. And the number of tequila shots (and odd boob grabs by the female shot girl) would have me on the floor. But these three fools are dancing on the bar! Tamra is flashing her boobs at the entire packed house. Vicki promised Steve she would not get on the bar. Steve apparently has some sort of moral compass that comes with adulthood, or at least old age, that Shannon and Tamra lack. Steve advises Vicki not to do anything that she would not do in front of her grandkids in public. (aka on camera where it will be seen by the grandkids eventually).
When they leave the club, Shannon, the mother of three daughters, can barely walk. They head off in search of food and drunken bonding. Tamra talks about her undying love for Eddie. Vicki says she is so guarded now with Steve after the fiasco with Brooks. So guarded that she’s moved him into her house and keeps asking him to marry her. Shannon says she used to feel that way about David. Super drunk Shannon starts blathering on about how she has been with Vicki so many times when she’s said Brooks is her soulmate. See, this I view as a much bigger violation of girl code than Vicki and Steve double dating with Michael. Tamra say similar things in her talking head.
This hotel is getting a crappy promotional. I tried three times to see the name of the hotel and could not. Back in their suite, Tamra is naked in the hot tub on the balcony alone. Tamra gets out of the hot tub and wipes out on the marble floor. Shannon gets in the hot top in spanx. More tequila for Tamra.
Vicki and Shannon fell asleep but Tamra started to realize her foot was broken. She went to the hospital alone in the middle of the night and is now in a cast. They had a least 15 tequila shots each the night before.
It literally takes three people to carry Tamra down to the beach. Shannon has a tequila tasting scheduled for later which means more drunken crying. I cannot drink Tequila. I am a sobbing mess on Tequila. It’s a downer drink for me. Tamra is on painkillers and falls asleep during dinner. This leaves Shannon and Vicki to taste the tequila. Shannon is humiliated that David has found someone else within weeks of their split. Shannon and Vicki hug and kiss.
Next week: Shannon sees a US doctor about her fracture and it is worse than she thought. Vicki and Kelly get together to fight.
