Most of the women on this show annoy me. I should get that out there right from the start before attempting a Southern Charm NOLA Recap. Especially, Reagan Charleston. In case you missed it, Tamara Tattles was the first to get the scoop on her wedding and pregnancy. So let’s see how she plans to spin this. Where do they find these horrible creatures?
I do love Jeff and he seems happy. I also love the artist guy, Jon Moody. I wish the guys were the focus and not the women. This is a lot of NOLA in one night. Tamica’s nine year old daughter has to wake her up? Why? It seems like things are better with Tamica and Barry. Let’s get straight into this Southern Charm NOLA Recap!
Tamica and Barry have move across Lake Pontchartrain. They love their new house and ginormous pool. Tamica says this year is all about personal growth for her.
Reagan and Jeff are getting along despite the pending divorce. And well her upcoming shotgun wedding. But that’s a whole nuther story. Once Jeff’s family stole the money, Reagan bailed. I’m pretty sure my sources said she kept the house. The editing of this segment says that the house is Jeff’s now. We shall see. They are still pretending that things are good between them.
Justin & Kelsey
I really don’t feel like I know these two. But at least they got their own place. And it is gorgeous. They are both on a major diet plan. They have both dropped a lot of weight. They also have a new dog. Now all Kelsey needs is a ring.
Tamica and Reagan go to lunch. Apparently, these two best friends are not close at all when the cameras go home. Reagan is not drinking. But no one knows she is pregnant yet. Tamica doesn’t even think Reagan’s new boyfriend is that serious. I believe my sources said that all the girls turn on her for hiding her entire life from them and then suddenly getting married. Tamica and Barry’s pool party should be interesting.
Guys Night In
But before we get to the pool party, all the guys head over the bridge to Jeff’s house for drinks. Jeff says the divorce will be final in about a week. He seemed relieved to be free of Reagan. Both Jeff and Reagan are really trying to sell their conscious uncoupling as a good thing. They both say they will continue to be close friends. I’m not sure this sentiment will make it through the first episode.
This divorce is a confusing as the fact that Jon and Jeff are playing ping pong on the wrong side of the table. Jon wants to give Jeff a makeover and send him out on the prowl. But, it seems he wants to make him over in his own image. Why would he dye his hair black?
Tamica’s personal growth year apparently includes having someone help her choose a variety of swimsuits for her pool party. Because, everything is about Tamica. She has both a personal assistant and a brand manager doing all the work for the party. Why does this need to be such a major production. Sun, pool, booze. That’s all that needs to be done. False eyelashes for a pool party is utterly ridiculous.
Kelsey and Barry arrive rocking their new summer bodies and Tamica is cranky that the attention is all on Kelsey. Kelsey didn’t apparently get the memo that this is Tamica’s year for Tamica. I forget why she hates Kelsey so much. Reagan’s boobs are falling out the bottom of her swimsuit as she continues to try to sell her happy divorce story. Again. It won’t be long until Tamica and Reagan go from frenemies to enemies. These women can’t get along for five minutes.
It’s My Party And I’ll Cry If I Want To!
Tamica runs off to cry in the bathroom because when they were all getting the hard sell on the happy divorce Reagan mentioned Tamica’s near divorce. Why is Tamica so emotional? This is what best friends look like? After the dramatic crying, Tamica does a wardrobe change. Anything to get the attention back on her. But that doesn’t last long because Jon arrives in bright yellow shorts and a funkadelic fur coat. Sorry, Tamica.
Then Jeff makes his grand entrance. He’s got a new haircut. It looks like he actually did dye it. It seems to be a bit of a darker red. Then Jon took him to get his ears pierced. I did not need to watch that long needle go into his ear! Reagan cries when she talks to Jeff about his new look. Jeff seems happy to be free from her. Why is everyone crying at this party?
Reagan leaves the party first. She has to get home to her new man. The very first scene we get of him is him naked in the shower. And there that is where the episode ends. I struggled a bit with this Southern Charm NOLA recap. It seems to me that this group talks way to fast. And Tamica, despite being a TV host seemed like she had marbles in her mouth. Is that just me?
Next week, Reagan has an event. Jeff will find out about Reece for the first time. Will the divorce still be superduper then?
