Let’s bang out a Southern Charm NOLA Recap and see what sends Jeff off the rails again tonight. What does Tamica feel the need to cause problems for everyone. First, she is telling Jeff that he isn’t fine about the divorce and the engagement and the baby. Then when Kelsey asks her to lay of the drama at her housewarming party she tells her it isn’t her house. Now I doubt Tamica has seen the deed to determine if Kelsey’s name is on it; BUT SHE LIVES THERE. Even when you rent an apartment you invite friends over to your house.
Kelsey ends up throwing Tamica and Barry out of her house. Justin supports her decision. Barry tries to get Tamika to take Justin’s situation into consideration. Tamica thinks she runs the show no matter where she is. She’s wrong about that.
Get Off My Lawn!
While Tamica tries to tell Barry and Rachel that she is right about everything, a very drunk Jeff is loose in the neighborhood. He’s drunk and running and face planting on peoples lawns. Jon and Barry each try to get the other to handle the Jeff situation. Jeff wants to go to the French Quarter and party. This is not a good idea. At least he is not driving.
Reece’s Birthday Party
It’s Reece’s 32nd birthday so Reagan is throwing him a party at his mother’s house. Apparently, Reagan is just like Reece’s mother. Annoying AF. Tamika is pissed that Reagan isn’t keeping her in the loop of her life. She’s finding things out on social media. And after a random guest sings a bizarre rendition of Happy Birthday, that’s all we get off the party.
Next, Tamica has a sit down with Justin where he tries to explain to her that her behavior toward Kelsey is unacceptable. It doesn’t seem to register to Tamica that she needs to apologize. Justin makes it clear to her if her behavior doesn’t stop, he may have to end their friendship.
Will We Have Another Fashion Show With No Fashions?
Barry’s fashions show is about to be held and there is one little thing that is missing. The merchandise. Jeff offers to go pick up the fashions in Houston. That’a a long drive to make for a friend. Eventually, the product comes by the brand name isn’t on them. Barry stays up all night fixing the product. He’s super nervous about the fashion show. He opts not to do a rehearsal.
Before the fashion show, Jon Moody tries to talk to Jeff Charleston about his drinking and behavior at the housewarming party. Apparently, Jeff was climbing trees in the neighbors yard and being disruptive to the neighborhood. He cautions him to slow his drinking down before the runway show. Reagan has morning sickness at night and is threatening to puke everywhere.
Finally, it’s time to start the show. A few models in out comes Jon Moody in tight white spandex pants and nothing else. Production had to put a LARGE eggplant on the screen to cover his junk. I hate production. The first fun thing to happen on this episode and we are being deprived. Jeff comes straight off the runway to the bar. Jon Moody is not happy about this.
Rani, Tamika and Barry’s daughter rocked the runway as the final look. She’s ten. I know Barry wants her to go to Stanford, but this kid has model written all over her. She flosses and looks adorable. She’s by far the best model on the runway. Barry gets emotional thanking the crowd. I love Barry. Why does he have such bad taste in women?
Jeff continues to drink copious amounts of drinks. The NOLA fashion influencers are all there. The woman in charge of NOLA fashion week invites First Team to the show. There is something very intriguing about that woman. I hope we get to see more of her. Is it just me or does she have some sort of interesting vibe? She sort of reminds me of the sainted DVF.
Reagan of course wants to talk to the girls about planning the wedding. Tamica wants the night to be all about Barry. I get it. I’m not a big fan of Reagan’s but she does have a lot going on with the pregnancy and the quickie wedding. I kind of understand why she would be talking about it to her friends. Isn’t that what Tamica said she wanted? She’s just asking the girls to come with her to try on dresses.
Jeff Goes AWOL
Meanwhile,Jeff is hitting on all the women. And ordering three shots of tequila at a time. Jeff leaves with some girl. But at some point Jeff just disappears. Jeff has apparently gone running into a bad part of NOLA. I was once on a cross country trip with a guy. I insisted that we stop near the French Quarter and get a room. He had all of his worldly possession in the car. We had barely even checked in before we get a call from the front desk that someone had broken into his car and stole his shit. It was a nightmare that put me off of New Orleans.
Hours later, production finally finds Jeff wandering the highway. Jeff goes on a rant. Fuck Everyone! No one fucking cars! Leave me alone! etc.. He runs off into the darkness. Again.
Next week’s Southern Charm NOLA recap will cover the aftermath of Jeff’s drunken escapades. Justin and Kelsey differ about getting married. It’s another birthday party. This time I think it is Jon Moody’s? Justin has surgery.
