We begin this Southern Charm NOLA Recap with Reagan and Reece shopping for a wedding cake that is also a gender reveal cake. As one does.
Meanwhile, Tamica is throwing herself a surprise birthday party disguised as a party for Sonny. As one does. The females on this show are just awful.
Justin has to go in for neck surgery. He;s nervous and so is Kelsey. The best thing about this show may be their big ole shaggy dog. My dog and I are having a fight at the moment. Don’t ask. Anyway, Kelsey is pissed that Justin didn’t tell her about his surgery until the day it was scheduled. But he’s so nervous she’s going to have to just get over it until later.
Next, we go to the venue for Reagan’s wedding gender reveal party. Production makes sure to let us know she is not getting married in the French Quarter, she’s getting married in French Quarter Adjacent, which is the West Palm Beach to the French Quarter’s Palm Beach. You can read my exclusive report on her wedding here. She got married at the Board Of Trade which is a popular wedding venue in New Orleans. Reece’s mom is obnoxious. Because, apple, tree.
Jeff goes to see his therapist about his anger issues and his poor coping mechanisms, like alcohol. Jeff cries when he thinks his friends may abandon him because of his drinking. His therapist says that losing his wife so soon after losing his family is a lot to deal with. He suggests he take a break from seeing Reagan. I think that is sound advice for Jeff, and citizens of the world in general.
Reagan goes to try on wedding gowns. Tamica doesn’t show up. Nor does anyone else. It’s a work day and they had no notice.
Tamica wants Barry to have the talk with their 17 year old son. It’s about four or five years too late for that.
Tamica goes to pick up her brother for his surprise party. On the way there, Tamica brings up how they used to have joint birthday parties when they were kids. He points out the birthdays were always about Tamica and never about him. Prepare yourself Sonny, nothing has changed.
Tamica can’t stand that Reagan and Reece are always talking about their wedding. Of course they are! They are about to get married. Those two have plenty of issues you can throw in their face, but talking about their wedding planning isn’t one of them.
Meanwhile, Jeff is not drinking at the party. Rachel says she will stay sober as well in solidarity. She’s very concerned about Jeff.
Tamica thinks she is a girls girl. I’m not sure she knows what that means. Kelsey seems as confused as I am.
Rachel, who is a girls girl talks to Reagan. Reagan says that Jeff is drinking so much because she is not there to reign him in anymore. Jeff apologizes to Barry for his out of control behavior. Reagan trashes Jeff to Rachel.
Back at HER house, Kelsey plays with the dog on the bed. Justin comes home and they are all lovey dovey until Justin tells her that his doctor recommended surgery on his spine. So he went to get a second opinion. He hasn’t told her anything. Kelsey doesn’t feel included in his life. She wants to be engaged. He is just not ready. She’son the verge of giving him an ultimatum.
Next Week’s RHOP Recap highlights include Tamica’s son getting a speeding ticket and how Barry had not given him the talk to know what to do in that situation, Reagan realizes that Tamica has been ignoring her, Jeff hosts Friendsgiving, where some fool decides to tell Jeff Reagan is pregnant. Jeff loses it.
