Tonight’s Southern Charm Nola recap will likely be much more exciting than tonight’s RHOP Recap! (Update: Sunday night have three shows to recap so I set up the first paragraph and all the boring stuff up before the shows start. #RHOP was actually pretty good tonight!)After some scenes with Justin and Kelsey, we will head over to Jeff Charleston’s place for a Friendsgiving. One “friend,”Doug, will take that golden moment in time to inform him that Reagan is pregnant with Reece’s baby. By now, I think we all know that the reason Reagan didn’t want to be pregnant on the finale last season was because there would have been paternity issues. I wonder if Jeff will ever figure that out?
I didn’t recap the trip to the grocery story with Jeff and Benny Poppins because I didn’t want to miss a second of watching what Benny Poppins chose to buy. Because, I used to make a cornish hen around thanksgiving myself but I haven’t seen them lately. I think they got kind of a bad rap and no one eats them anymore. But I hope to see how Benny Poppins cooks them!
How Do You BURN Tea?
Better yet, how does Tamica not know how you make tea? You don’t boil a thing if you are doing it right. You want to heat the pot of water to right before it starts to boil. If it boils you take the lid off and let it cool just a bit. Then you take it off the heat and put the teabags in for 5-7 minutes. You don’t want your tea bags in boiling water ever. You certainly don’t put the tea bag in before heating the water. Just another annoying thing Tamica does.
Apparently, Tamica and Barry’s son got a speeding ticket going 79 on the Pontchartrain Bridge. Barry doesn’t know the difference between an odometer and a speedometer. These two are perfect for each other. This leads to a story about Barry getting thrown in jail by a police officer over a case of mistaken identity when he was young and left there for 13 hours.
Justin and Kelsy go on a date night. Kelsey wants Justin to slow down on his workload. It looks like Justin i also going to go for some therapy. She needs him to make their relationship as much of a priority as she does. Justin has commitment issues. Kelsey needs to set a firm time limit for herself.
Painting The Nursery
Things could be a lot worse for Kelsey. She could be pregnant by an idiot boy child who doesn’t seem to get what “painting the nursery”means. Who in their right mind would marry this fool? I have no words. Reagan thinks this behavior is cute.
Reece is functionally illiterate. What on earth does she see in this drunken moron with a gambling problem? The point of the bizarre, hopefully scripted, scene is to have Reagan let us know she is not going to tell Jeff she is pregnant. WTF? EVERYONE else knows. This is not a secret. He’s going to find out.
Lamb With Jon Moody
Jon Moody is making some lamb with asparagus for Barry and Justin. And of course a few random girls. Ah! He lied about the girls just to freak Barry out. Jeff was working. They talk about Barry’s son’s speeding ticket. That leads to talking about bad situations with cops. I want to back up and see how Jon made those chops but I don’t have time.
Jeff Charleston is all pumped up to have all of his friends over for Thanksgiving. Jeff has been on the wagon for week. So while he is serving alcohol, he is not partaking. He’s in a good place. For now. Reagan and the moron are NOT invited.
When Jeff and Reagan’s friend Doug gets to the party, he immediately pulls Jeff aside to tell him that Reagan is pregnant. What a douchebag. On the other hand, I am not buying this scene at all. He clearly knows. This is bad acting. Really bad acting.
I can’t even pretend to care about Reagan and Reece right now.
Jeff’s weird scarf is almost as ridiculous as the poor acting. Even Benny Poppins can’t act. But he can cook and I want that Cornish hen and most of all I want that maque choux. I make that all the time but it is never as good as the Cajun restaurant I used to go to in Athens, Georgia. That is where I got hooked on red fish. So good!
Eventually everyone is finally at the table to eat in awkward silence. Eventually, Jeff’s production cue to announce that he knows that Reagan is pregnant happens. Tamica tells us in a talking head that she thinks Jeff did know. How could he not? Everyone else in their friend group knew. Plus Reagan and Jeff had been spending time together. Tamica’s comments to Jeff cause him to throw his plate of food crashing to the ground and him storming off again. I think he is just mad that Tamica broke the fourth wall and all his poor acting was for nothing.
To Be Continued…
On next week’s Southern Charm Nola Recap, we will cover the aftermath of this staged scene. There will be pinatas filled with condoms, and a chat between Justin and his mother over his commitment issues. Barry has a talk with his son. Tamica tells Reagan she doesn’t want to be a bridesmaid. Tamica and Rachel confront Reagan at a Jon Moody event. Reagan reaches out to Jeff because she feels friendless.
In my exclusive report on Reagan and Reece’s wedding, Tamara Tattles exclusive sources reported that no one wanted to go to the wedding at all but were forced to go by production.
