After no show last week, when pulling photos for this week’s Southern Charm Nola Recap I could not remember a single person’s name except for Jon Moody. And he wasn’t in any of the photos I pulled. My memory is nonexistent these days. And for some reason the RHOP recap took forever tonight. Anyway, let’s see what sort of unnecessary drama Reagan stirs up this week.
It is Halloween in the French Quarter. So, this show be a great episode. I believe we are going to start with a haunted house tour. But first, Reagan has to announce her engagement to the group. One of my commenters pointed out that Reece’s parents are wealthy. That makes everything make sense. But, she is going to earn every penny of that money living with this doofus. The announcement is met by stunned silence. Reece had asked Reagan not to announce anything just yet. But, Reagan ignored his wishes.
Dinner With The Dead
Everyone is confused why “Reagan” set up a haunted tour of the French Quarter. Production set it up for us, that is why. We love this stuff! Justin does not. He hasn’t like any of the supernatural stuff they do every season. They have been scheduled to have dinner at Muriel’s restaurant where a famous ghost has taken up residency. And there is going to be a seance. Justin draws the line there. So does Kelsey. They bail. Barry wants to get out of it too, but apparently Tamica insisted he stay.
When I was little we would have sleepovers and play “light as a feather” where someone was the body and everyone else would put two fingers from each hand under the body and we would say some chant in an attempt to levitate the person. Those childish “seances” and Ouija board games were way more serious and sophisticated than this seance. A see a Bill? A William? The color blue? A D name? Andre? Dugasse? Nope. Nope. And more nope. In college I would sometimes “read palms” at the bar. I had sort of a knack for knowing what people were majoring in by their appearance. I was more successful than this woman. Reece asked her for three horse race numbers. She gave him 8, 6, and 8. That’s two numbers. Sigh.
Tossed Salad And Scrambled Eggs
Am I supposed to know this new BFF of Reagan’s? I think they said her name was Rachel. She seems way too wise and normal for Reagan. Although she did bring a dozen eggs and have Reagan hold them all in her hands while they talked. Each egg represented someone in her life. It took her more than two hours to discuss the people represented by the eggs. Then she ends with “speaking of eggs, I’m pregnant.” I like Rachel.
Tamica goes to lunch with he real friend Sue. Tamica is worried about her son, Hunter turning thirteen. She needs Barry to have a sit down with him about girls and the police, and drugs and drinking and smoking and all the things teen aged boys need to know about. But the real reason for this scene is to get Reagan’s phone call on camera. Tamica steps outside to take the call and pretends like she didn’t already know. But she did.
Jeff goes on an awkward first date. Apparently the bar is right next to the train tracks. So, wheb a train goes by, their conversation is interrupted. Production has also paid a location fee to keep the room they are in empty. At least they didn’t hire extras. Sidenote: There is a lot of screaming outside tonight. The guy across the street is super quiet. The houses on both sides are currently empty. Where is all this noise coming from? There were firetrucks and ambulances at one home down the road today. Then a few hours later three cop cars were patrolling the area. Something is a foot.
Anyway, the date is getting a bit better. They seem to actually like each other and bond over Dobermans.
Tamica and Barry go on another date. They return to where they had their first date. Tamica says that Barry would stalk her when she was a cheerleader for the New Orleans Saints. Then one day one of his clients he was training asked if he had ever met her daughter. And it was Tamica!
Barry is finally ready to debut his fashion line of workout clothes. All the guys from the show are going to be models. And he needs a few girls.
Shotgun Wedding Plans
Kelsey and Justin are throwing a housewarming party. Both are worried that Tamica will be a bitch. Once again, Reagan wants to announce she is pregnant. And once again Reece wishes she would not. We finally get out first look at Jon Moody this episode.
Justin and Kelsey’s house is really pretty. So, of course Tamica keeps low key shading the place. Meanwhile, the guys work on their catwalks for the upcoming fashion show.
Things get awkward when Reece and Reagan arrive and Reece gives all of Jeff’s buddies a hug like they are all friends. But it is about to get even more awkward. Reagan is flashing her engagement ring that she bought herself. Reagan tells Kelsey that she is getting married in December. That just a month from now. Reece wanted to just fly to Vegas and do a cheap quickie marriage. Reagan is not having that. And if you thought the baby shower miscarriage party gender reveal shindig that Monique threw on RHOP was weird, Reagan’s wedding included a gender reveal! Media whores are a very strange breed. I’m just sayin’.
Like An Angel Kissing A Jellyfish?
Kelsey tells Reagan that she and Justin are on the opposite end of the spectrum they are taking things very slowly. Then Reagan whispers to her, “I’m pregnant.” And Kelsey is gobsmacked. Tamica asks Reagan if she has told Jeff. She says that she has not. Kelsey asks if she will be announcing it tonight and she says no. Reagan tells Tamica, Kelsey and Rachel that she wants them to be in her wedding. This pisses Tamica off because she can’t stand Kelsey. This is of course productions idea to have the bridesmaid’s war for the pre-wedding episodes
Jeff is kicking back the tequila. Jon asks Jeff how his date went the night before. He says it went great. He took her to a dive bar. Jon realizes that Jeff needs even more help with his game than he thought. Then Jeff calls the date, Alexandra, and tries to give Jeff a little bit of help. She will probably jump ship and be one of Jon’s conquests.
In Vino Veritas
Jeff continues to drink a shit ton of margaritas and tequila shots. Reagan and Reece have more public displays of affection. Tamica continues to stew over Kelsey. It’s a powder keg ready to go off. Jeff tells Reagan and Tamica that he just Facetimed his date from last night. She’s a Cajun girl. Tamica says if he had brought her to the party she would have totally meangirled her. Jeff says she cares for him more than she cares for Reagan. Reagan is standing right there. Awkward! He says everyone likes him better than Reagan. I know I do.
Jeff tells Reagan that he thinks she is going into a relationship with more problems than they had. Reagan says there are no problems in her life. That is a lie for anyone to say. Everyone has things they have to deal with in life. Jeff says she is running away from her problems. Tamica takes Jeff outside to speak privately. Or not so privately. She lays into Jeff saying he is faking it. Why is she such a bitch? Barry has to come over and mediate the situation. Then Kelsey comes over to tell Tamica she is disrupting the party with her drunken, loud conversation. She tried to move her outside and….. This Southern Charm NOLA recap is to be continued…
On the next Southern Charm NOLA recap, Jeff is shitfaced at the housewarming party, Barry has his fashion show despite a few hiccups. Reagan pushes Jeff to his breaking point.
