For the love of God, can we please stop talking about warm cream cheese oozing out of the center of a piece of cooked salmon? I. JUST. CAN’T.
Andy says Shannon and Jeff have been trying to do the show together for… “FIVE YEARS!” they point out in unison.
When Andy asks Jeff if he is going to have another kid, he snaps back that they would need to find another surrogate, but they would like to. Jeff, when you insult the hell out of your surrogate and embarrass her to death on national TV making remarks like, “She could have at least shaved for the birth.” It’s really not the surrogate’s fault you don’t have one anymore. Let alone the fact that both the surrogate and the doctor claim that the were told there would be no filming of the birth and yet production hid behind a curtain without their knowledge and filmed the whole thing. You are not the victim here. Even Andy shakes his head and says, “Boy, you don’t stop do you?” Jeff just grins and takes a sip of his drink.
Jeff says Monroe has been calling him Jeff, which is not good. Later in the show, Jeff clarifies that he and Gage actually do want to have more children. The first year with Monroe and the lawsuit with the surrogate have been difficult for them both, but they absolutely want more kids.
They show a the clip of Vicki lecturing Gina about her divorce. The poll shows 85% of people are on Gina’s side. Jeff points out that it is extremely rude of Vicki to say that all the time because it’s very disrespectful to Steve. I agree.
David was right that Shannon doesn’t look her best with her hair pulled back. David has officially moved in with his girlfriend and her kids. Andy heard that she’s pregnant. Shannon says she doesn’t think she is.
Jeff’s Radio show is going to three times a week. It’s probably more popular than Andy’s show. And asks Jeff the first question he would ask a list of celebrities if they came on his show. This should be good.
Gina Kirschenheiter: Was Matt seeing someone else?
Bethenny Frankel: Is Bethenny and Fredrik coming back for another season? He liked that show.Andy thinks he is being shady when he said that. Shannon says that he loved it and called her to tell her to watch it. Sounds like it is not coming back. I thought that Fredrik kind of got Bethenny and her harsh personality but I saw him on something and he gave off some body language that said he didn’t want to do the show with her again. He didn’t say anything bad, but I was surprised that he seemed genuinely not into it as I felt like all the arguments and tears from Fredrik were just for TV. Perhaps not.
Tommy From Shahs of Sunset: He would ask him how the IVF is going because he thinks they are “pretty close to getting pregnant.” Does he know something? I’ll have to check with my source. I really expected a cheap shot there.
Steve Lodge: He’s ask him if he still lives with his mom. OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHH! That’s interesting. Is he saying Steve never really moved in with Vicki? He would know. Andy tries to cover his expression. Shannon looks shocked and misses a few beats be for she mutters something about “No…”
Andy is going to soft pedal through this Jenni Pulos stuff. Jeff was on Wendy Williams today and said that the fight is on episodes 9 and 10 so we have a bit of a weight. Andy just asks if he thinks the two will ever reconcile. Jeff says he is a very forgiving guy but when someone reports you for abuse to your bosses, that is something that is hard to get over.
Shannon says she thinks it will take some time to process and he thinks it will take Jeff a couple of years to get past this. Jeff says when he watches the show, he already misses her; but, when someone crosses the line it is hard to get over.
Shannon claims her healthy food line is what has helped her to lose weight. She is back on QVC this Wednesday debuting her skinny lobster cake. Now that I would eat.
Jeff says that he thought Ramona’s Hampton’s house could use a few more layers, and more color for sure. He thought the NYC kitchen turned out really nice.
A caller asks Jeff is he has met Shannon’s new man. He says he has and he is there! Is this breaking news? Shannon freaks out.
Okay so apparently these two have been dating for a few months and are quite serious. He’s a real estate developer and philanthropist in Newport Beach. This is the second time he has come with her to WWHL. He has lots of kids most are grown but he has one daughter who WHO IS ONE YEAR OLD! He is 58 and so is Shannon. Apparently, he an the mom are happy co-parents and she is happy that Scot has found Shannon. This is weird. Shortly after they started dating Tamra trashed him in the press and said he is a “Brooks Ayers” type. Because, Tamra. Kelly likes him.
Andy plays a scene of Kelly and Gina talking about how Shannon isn’t friendly at all toward Gina. Gina feels like she should have acknowledged her existence at least by this point in filming and feels like Shannon is not open to being her friend. Kelly says it take Shannon a while to care about new people but when she lets you in she is all in. Shannon says she was a single mom of three kids who launched a food line in six months and was trying to deal with all the change in her life. Shannon says that Gina was stirring the pot with her on the show and so she just was not a priority. A few random female audience members cheered really loud for her. Who is there with her? That seemed odd to me. Maybe everyone is a Shannon fan these days?
Jeff says that the fact that Jeff works for the Jeff Lewis Design Firm it helps their marriage because no one else would understand all the work involved and the time it eats up. Jeff says he is seriously considering marrying Gage. She says Gage is probably shocked right now. He’s probably there with Monroe because they never miss a chance to take her to American Girl. He was talking about that on Wendy! today. I just noticed the wallpaper in the green room at WWHL is the wallpaper Kelly put in her apartment. The busy wallpaper with all the banana leaves. Andy looks at the camera and tells Gage he has a first class ticket to NYC waiting for him if he “changes his mind.” He means about Jeff. Andy has a huge crush on Gage. Jeff says he knows he has options that is why he is going to have to lock it down.
When asked who the drunkest person at Harry Hamlin’s birthday part was, he says he was. Shannon was asked if she would take David back. She says NEVER. Again with the cheers.
Jeff’s Marry, Shag, Kill answers were Shag Eddie, he would reluctantly married Steve so he could kill Shane.
On the after show, Shannon says that she recently went out to dinner and Vicki and Steve were talking about retiring together. She starts to say “and they are also talking about… ” and then stopped herself. It sounds like they are talking marriage.
Jeff and Shannon were asked what the craziest thing that has happened when they go out together. It was during Shannon’s first season on RHOOC and it was a big group with Brandi Glanville (as Jeff says back when she was still speaking to him) and Tamra and they went from Craigs to SUR with Jeff and Shannon in the back (trunk) of an Escalade. When they went to valet, the paparazzi were there and they had to open up the back hatch to let the, out and they were falling out of the car and Shannon’s Spanx were all rolled up and cameras were flashing everywhere.
Jeff said that he tried to make up with Jeff and she invited him to meet him at a bar and then just stood him up. Andy thinks that is hysterical.
Jeff is asked who would be the best and worst assistant for him from all the housewives. Porsha would be worst and Lea Black would be great. He’s really impressed with Lea Black. Which is strange because she is the person who caused the end of his friendship with Jenni. That seems like a dig at Jenni to me.
Shannon tells the story of meeting Jeff Lewis. She was on the way to Fashion Island (note to foreigners, it’s a shopping mall in OC) with her kids and Tamra called and said she was at a bar with Jeff Lewis. Shannon was a huge fan so she dropped the kids off and hightailed it over there. They had so much fun and they got kicked out of the bar for being to rowdy. Jeff told Tamra he has a new favorite housewife. they went back to Shannon’s huge estate at the time, they drank an entire bottle of vodka. Jeff went through all her Christmas cards. And they had to carry Shannon to bed. They have been besties ever since.
Jeff is asked who of all the housewives would he dip in the lady pond with. He first thinks of Joanna Krupa and Shannon says Miami doesn’t count so he says Kyle.
Jeff is texting again with Zoila and they are going to dinner soon. Andy is happy and so am I. Jeff adds Maybe Zoila will come back. I hope there is a show if that happens.
