It looks like this recap is going to be fast and loose because I was watching BIP on the DVR and when the show started, then went to flip to the DVR version of RHOOC and it says it is recording but it is not a choice on my DVR menu. So I am watching it live on TV and it won’t let me pause because the DVR thinks I am watching BIP. Or something. Whatever. It’s a problem and I really need to pause to recap.
Shannon and Kelly go out and talk about dating. Shannon is not ready to date because David really did a number on her self-esteem with all the cheating and fat comments. Kelly says she is still grieving her marriage too. She basically says she is just faking it with the guys she is dated and in her private moments grieves the end of her eleven year marriage. It’s a fake it til you make it strategy.
Okay, during the commercial I was able to resolve the DVR issue. This is good because my goal for the day was to try to make this recap more interesting. I think I’ve been writing about how boring it is this season and people are not watching and I have no one to talk about the show with. Plus, I like Vicki and that pisses you all off.
Not only do I have to have scenes with just Gina and THE VOICE, she has random friends now filming with her? They just threw her right into the deep end his season. Usually any single housewife shoots with first timers are with their family at least. I feel like we are getting a lot of Gina scenes this season compared to the others. Maybe it just seems that way because I’m always waiting for her scenes to be over. Anyway her friend Tatiana is out shopping with her at an antique store for something for Gina’s nanny Miss Lupe. She likes hanging out with Tatiana because she can joke about “friend’s weird vaginas” with her because she is from New York where that is normal. WTF? And her NY accent goes away at times and she starts talking with a west coast vocal fry that is even more annoying. Make it stop. Please make it stop.
Tamra goes shopping with Shannon for an exercise machine that Shannon will never use. That bike she hated was a birthday present of David and he took it with him.She doesn’t like working out in public. Tamra is not happy with Shannon’s new closeness with Kelly who she used to hate. Tamra is feeling left out because she broke her foot and Eddie’s health is not improving. She’s jealous that the two divorced girls are going out without her.
Emily decides to show off her party planning skills by throwing a poker party for all the girls. Shannon bought a poker suit for the occasion. I love it. How does Emily not use her over if she is raising a family with her husband? How does a mother not cook? I do not understand. I live alone and use my oven every day. I guess she uses a microwave a lot. Microwaves are the devil. I don’t have one in my house. I find it perplexing that people refer to it as “nuking their food” and that seems A-okay to them.
Vicki was late to dinner. Kelly seems to really hit is off with Emily’s mother in law over her man problems. Apparently, the doctor she sucked face with last week, she took him out to a $700 dinner and they went to a sunglasses store and she picked out some sunglasses and he chose the same pair for himself. He paid for his but didn’t offer to pay for hers, so he’s out. I agree with her 100% and I would feel the same way if he paid the $700 dinner bill. What do you think? Kelly says there is no chance that she and Michael will get back together. I’m not too sure about that.
Then we have to rehash the Kelly, Vicki, Michael thing. This time Shannon is totally team Kelly. Kelly cries about the situation again. Vicki keeps saying Kelly is one of her best friends and she would never hurt her. Kelly seems drunk. Kelly says that Vicki is a constant let down to her.
Shannon’s QVC deal seems so bizarre to me. I just can’t comprehend buying her food.
It’s time for poker. It looks like they are playing Texas Hold Em. That’s kind of complicated for this group. They do shots and Gina is wasted and running her mouth. The dealer tries to explain they need to have a poker face and Gina points out she is the only one at the table who has a natural face and is not shot full of Botox. This irritates Shannon. Gina squeals like a pig when she gets a straight. This pisses the demure Vicki off. She wants her to just talk quietly. What happened to whooping it up. Vick?
The three Amigas go outside to
get away from Gina smoke cigars. Tamra wants to talk to Vicki about Kelly. Tamra goes in to get Kelly so Tamra and Shannon can coach her through her apology. Pary is hand in hand with Kelly. It’s a bit odd. Ah, here is the issue. Micheal called Steve and Steve invited him for Thanksgiving. Kelly was not invited and had nowhere to go. THAT is the problem. And pretty fucked up of Vicki. That is why Kelly is so hurt. Kelly had dinner at the club with Jolie.
Eddie has to get another cardiac ablation. I hate this story. Atrial fib runs in my family. That is how my mother died (stroke.) It sucks. This is the second one. I believe he has done five so far. Tamra’s concerns are not comforting Eddie. The procedure didn’t work. Now the doctor wants him to go on a drug to regulate his heart rate. But he will have to be in the hospital for four days at first because it causes some people to go into cardiac arrest so he needs to be in the hospital when that happens. Eddie is very scared. I feel so sorry for him. He’s going to call another doctor for a second opinion. It’s putting a strain on the marriage.
Emily’s husband is not a fan of Gina’s loud mouth either. Gina was the last drunken guest to leave and it appears she only left when Shane who was upstairs putting kids to bed yelled down to get her out of his house. Gina texted an apology to Emily the next morning. Shane said she was loud, drunk and using foul language with their children in the house.
Next week: Gina thinks that Emily’s husband owes her an apology for throwing her out of the house. Seriously? Shannon goes to court with David and he went off on her.
