Hello y’all! We are back for what’s sure to be a 80’s-tastic Dallas episode. LeeAnne, Stephanie and Kameron all meet up for lunch. LeeAnne feels like Kam and Steph are like Barbie and Skipper-totally meant to be friends. Brandi and D’Andra meet up for lunch as well. Brandi is reveling in having a nanny to help. Steph drops the bomb that she’s getting vaginal rejuvenation and the three of them laugh and are getting along well. D’Andra tells Brandi about her talk with LeeAnne and D’Andra feels like LeeAnne is pushing her away-D’Andra thinks it’s because Rich cheats. Brandi thinks LeeAnne is just plain full of shit and is jealous of D’Andra. Keep in mind LeeAnne was D’Andra’s Maid of Honor at her wedding so to watch the amount of backstabbing is rather sad. LeeAnne tells Steph that she feels that Brandi has impeded her from opening up to Kam and LeeAnne and Kam agrees. Steph kind of agrees as well but owns that hers, not Brandi’s fault. Kam tells Steph that LeeAnne has never advised her from staying away from Brandi as what was told to Cary (to refresh read here). They do tequila shots and lunch ends swimmingly.
Charity season is in full swing in Dallas and LeeAnne is the LGBTQ Black Tie kickoff party. LeeAnne laments that D’Andra would go to all those functions but now that she’s friends with Brandi, she can’t be bothered. Several hours pass and Brandi and D’Andra arrive late. Brandi and D’Andra had been drinking all day and LeeAnne is upset that D’Andra came late and with a plus one she didn’t want to be there. Brandi is drunk so it may not be the greatest time to talk like D’Andra is pushing them to do. LeeAnne and Brandi try to discuss their issues but Brandi is too drunk and LeeAnne is too upset so they can’t understand each other. D’Andra just watches as they bicker. Brandi wants LeeAnne to admit she’s wrong and LeeAnne tries to pacify her but it doesn’t work. Brandi leaves in a huff.
Kam goes to see Court at work and complains that she can’t get things done at home. She hides in the closet as her kids bang on the door for her attention while she takes business calls. Court tells her that she needs to sell 5,000 bags of pink dog food in order to be successful and Kam feels too pressured. They have a business call with a distributor who is confident that Sparkle Dog will be successful overseas. Court seems to be taken aback by the enthusiasm and is visibly relieved. Kam gives me such Legally Blonde vibes that I cannot help but root for her.
Steph goes to Cary’s office to get her vaginal laser. Steph feels that her life is controlled by her bladder and cannot wait to walk without peeing. They do the laser and it seems really simple and pain free. Hmmm…lol. They discuss the upcoming 80’s party and Cary feels remorse for telling LeeAnne what Brandi told her privately. Steph sees a pattern with Cary telling everyone everything so she warns Cary to take the shit stirring down a notch.
Stephanie is getting ready for the 80’s prom theme event that Kam is co-chairing. She is in full big hair, ruffle dress and braces. Brandi arrives looking like a smaller version of Slash from Guns N’ Roses. It’s frightening yet funny but mostly frightening! They decide to go as prom King and Queen.
Kam is dressed as Madonna-lite but looks adorable. She’s honored to co-chair the ASD event as it directly helps AIDS services in Dallas. Cary doesn’t enjoy the 80’s but LeeAnne loved them-she says she and God communicated directly through Aquanet lol.
Steph and Brandi take a limo and of course Brandi talks crap about LeeAnne on the ride there. Steph feels that D’Andra is winding her up about LeeAnne and Rich’s relationship as D’Andra told Brandi that she feels Rich is cheating. Steph wants Brandi to not get involved with that but she thinks it’s a lesson Brandi has to learn on her own.
LeeAnne, Cary and Kam stand around talking. LeeAnne tells them that Brandi showed up drunk and Cary shuts it down rather quickly. She doesn’t want LeeAnne judging Brandi as she has a lot going on with her three kids. All the ladies are there so Brandi decides to take LeeAnne aside to talk. LeeAnne tells her she was upset at Brandi for showing up to the event drunk. Brandi tells LeeAnne that she doesn’t believe that she has changed her ways in such a short amount of time. LeeAnne tells her that she’s genuinely happy and at peace which Brandi doesn’t believe. Brandi says she feels like there’s a reason she hasn’t set a wedding date and LeeAnne tells her it’s none of her business. LeeAnne doesn’t confide in Brandi as they are not friends so it’s out of line and disingenuous for her to even speculate on her relationship.
LeeAnne throws it back at her and says it would be like saying Brandi and Bryan adopted a baby just to save their marriage. Brandi gets really upset and tells LeeAnne that she’s jealous of D’Andra. LeeAnne can see D’Andra’s words coming out of Brandi’s mouth and she reiterates that she’s not jealous of D’Andra. (An aside if I may-this is where I just can’t with Brandi. She’s so out of line to bring up RIch in the first place but gets her tail out of whack when exactly what she does gets thrown right back at her. End aside). D’Andra comes by to get her purse and LeeAnne tells her that Brandi thinks she’s jealous of her. Brandi says “That’s just what I think” as she stomps off. Ugh! I just can’t.
LeeAnne tells D’Andra that she’s upset that everyone seems concerned over her engagement. LeeAnne tells her to cut out the “living separate lives” crap and D’Andra gets upset. She tells LeeAnne that she’s concerned that they aren’t getting married. In the meantime, Brandi confronts Cary about what she told LeeAnne and Kam about their private conversations. Cary owns up and apologizes. She admits she screwed up but Brandi is going to be cautious going forward. LeeAnne tells D’Andra she has big plans for the wedding but since D’Andra wasn’t told what they are, she doesn’t believe them. D’Andra has been getting gossip that Rich is cheating, so how can she defend it if she doesn’t know what’s happening? LeeAnne gets crowned prom queen so she ends her night happy.
What a good yet frustrating episode!! Next week looks to be frustrating as well: D’Andra tells Mama Dee about her argument with LeeAnne and Mama Dee is not having it-she tells her to be more concerned with the office then with her best friend’s private life! Lol. Brandi spins the “baby saving” comment and LeeAnne tells D’Andra that she’s concerned with her hanging out and drinking a lot with Brandi. I’ll be here to recap all the feels and I hope you’ll be here to read it! See you next week!
