It’s time to head to back to Jamaica where everyone is hot but no one is as miserable as Shannon Beador. Shannon is mad at her friends because they told her she hasn’t been the best friend lately (or ever) and that it might be a good idea if she got on some medication for depression. It’s only day three.
At lunch, Shannon is still MIA and Vicki is the only one really trying to reach out to her. Kelly and Tamra say they are afraid to talk to her and have no desire to be screamed at anymore. The housewives trips are a reminder that traveling with other women is not fun. I just had the weirdest thought that Kenya might be having her baby, or had it earlier today. I saw an IG today where she was getting an ultrasound and you could tell she really was not feeling well. Anyway. Wrong show.
As soon as I see the waterfalls, TLC blares in my head. ” Don’t go chasing waterfalls!! Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to !!!” This will not go well. Tamra immediately has to bail out because she can’t walk on rocks (I guess because of her foot.) WTF did she think they were going to be walking on?
There are stairs you can take to the top of the waterfall. So Tamra is going that way. This guy is not even taking them to the handrail section. There are handrails and big signs that say DO NOT LET GO OF THE HANDRAILS. They are nowhere near the handrails. Kelly was the first one to loose control of her implants and flash the guide. I’m sure that will happen ten more times, dude. And it does. Tamra watches the entire spectacle at the top of the falls with a beer. That was really a huge legal liability for these housewives. You know they can’t go on a trip without someone going to the hospital. Or being airlifted out.
After the waterfall, Vicki is concerned that something could have happened to Shannon. I am quite sure she is just pouting and drinking red stripes by the pool. Interestingly, Kelly took Shannon’s spot as an amigo and left the two girls in their new villa alone. If Shannon does show up, that will be awkward.
Vicki finally gets Shannon on the phone.Shannon tells Vicki that she has been nothing but fun on this trip and she got blindsided. She’s pissed people think she needs to be on meds. She’s a screaming lunatic who never stops criticizing people under her breath and then ranting about what a terrific friend she is! Apparently Shannon got her own villa and told Vicki to come get her for dinner. Even weeks later in a confessional Shannon makes excuses and blames the divorce and thinks everyone just needs to deal with her. She’s completely wrong but that white dress was stunning. When Vicki gets there to take Shannon to dinner as directed, Shannon is pissed and grouchy. And she literally can’t stop talking about her “plate.”
Shannon is already worked up. She says she doesn’t cry every night and she has a great outlook on her new life. She’s clinically insane and in total denial. The dinner is very quite and awkward so of course Shannon gives a speech about HER PLATE. She says HER PLATE ten times. Then she goes back to Gina and basically says she gets triggered by Gina saying she is still attracted to her husband and they are trying to keep things civil. Gina breaks down a bit and says it’s not perfect, it’s a divorce and it’s really hard. She just wants the others to respect her JOURNEY (ugh) and let her deal with it her way.
Shannon so far has only apologized to Gina and Emily. That’s it. Tamra and Kelly drink honey mustard salad dressing because they think it is cauliflower soup in a shot glass.
On Day Four, Shannon wants a one on one with Tamra. So the entire group has to wait for Shannon to argue with Tamra. Tamra says that all Shannon does is complain. Kelly and the new girls talk about how entitled Shannon is. Even as they are talking, they are supposed to be on the beach but they have to wait for Shannon. Emily says she reminds her of her mother a lot and her mother’s moods. Now Emily is crying. Tamra tells Shannon she can’t keep talking to her that way. Shannon says “I’m sorry you feel that way.”
After a commercial, we have to replay the entire dinner fight. Eventually Shannon apologizes because Tamra says that since she and Shannon worked through things Shannon has been there for her. That’s not true at all. Shannon didn’t change at all after they hugged it out the last time. They hugged it out AGAIN. That doesn’t change the fact that Shannon has single-handedly ruined this trip.
They finally make it to the beach and everyone orders cocktails. Yay! The two girls have theirs at a table with an actual lunch. Gina gets a phone call from her mother and it makes Emily cry that Gina has a supportive mother.I’m so surprised to see Emily so emotional on this episode. It’s breaking my heart.
After the new girls have a nice lunch they meet up with the older four on the beach. They have all had tequila and rum that we know of. The rum was in a coconut, so I presume we could call that lunch. I used to have banana daiquiris for breakfast in Saint Lucia. Bananas we in season and everyone knows bananas are a breakfast food.
With just a couple of minutes left in the episode, the ladies sit down for THE LAST SUPPER. This means we are going to have at least half an episode of this fight next week. More if there is another van ride from hell to the airport.
Wait! Vicki is asking everyone what their favorite part of the trip was. Are we going to have a nice normal dinner. Tamra says her fight with Shannon was the best part because they are in a better place because of it. Then the group wants Vicki to twerk and for Gina and Shannon to kiss. Really? This trip is going to end on a happy note? It appears so.
Next week, Emily is going therapy. Oh, Ems. Just say no to TV therapy! Vicki is allowed to have major plastic surgery during filming. And Kelly and Gina tell Shannon that Tamra is still talking about her mental health. Because these bitches can’t just let shit go. So Tamra comes for Gina. Ut Oh.
