I am hoping that his Southern Charm NOLA Recap is more interesting than the RHOP episode tonight. But there is honestly much more excitement at the ghetto shack tonight than on my TV. I read tonight that Reagan has decided to keep the last name Charleston. Because it is the name of her company and the name on her law degree. I’m not sure why she can’t manage to keep the business name and lose the ex-husband’s name. Or why it matter is her former name is on her law degree. It just seems like another stab at Jeff to me.
We pick back up with Tamica actually making a good point for a change. There is no way that all of NOLA knew that Reagan was pregnant. Oh also today I read Reagan saying that she and Reece were actively trying to get pregnant because they want two or three kids. She wants two. He wants three. So the whole storyline about this being a secret is ridiculous.
Jon Moody says he is over hearing about everything Reagan does. It’s over. Jeff needs to move on. Tamica says Jeff should date a black girl. Jon agree. I just think he should date any girl who will take his focus off of Reagan. Let’s make this happen, Jon Moody. The thought of exploring new feminine worlds has Jeff, and thus the whole table in higher spirits.
Jeff has a pinata on standby for this momentous occasion. It’s filled with cash, condoms, booze and some sort of over the counter male enhancement drug. Friendsgiving ends on a happy note.
Reagan Still Wants To Call The Shots
Reagan calls Jeff a day or two later saying that their mutual friend Doug says something happened at Friendsgiving but he can’t be the one to tell her. Once again. She knows. Your GBF tells you everything. She is actually pissed that they had Friendsgiving without her though. I believe she mentioned that on social media. However, on the last episode she seemed to know that everyone else was filming without her. I love how Jeff informed her that he doesn’t need to run his plans by her. He is living his own life now. Reagan says she feels like Jeff has all the friends and she has none. I mentioned this in my exclusive real time post on all of this nonsense. Jeff did get all the friends in the divorce.
Reagan Is Missing The Big Picture
Reagan tries to reach out to Tamica, finally to acknowledge that she exists. Reagan asks how her Thanksgiving was. Tamica points out it was her birthday and it was great. Clearly, Reagan didn’t bother to reach out for either occasion. Reagan seems pissed about Friendsgiving at “her fucking house.” This is rich since Reagan has not been talking to Tamica for weeks. Now she wonders where all her friends went.
It’s a week before the wedding. These two are barely speaking. So it should be no surprise that Tamica doesn’t want to stand up for Reagan in the wedding. Reagan apologies and wipes away imaginary tears with her Anne Klein doorknocker ring hand and her engagement ring hand. Tamika needs a better bra. Or to fix the straps where her boob land in the same place. Tamica says they will work it out.
Later, Reagan has a similar conversation with Rachel. Rachel says she is willing to give her another chance but the fugazzi behavior has to stop. She invites Reagan on the Destin trip. She doesn’t want her to bring Reece. She agrees.
Never Waste A Woman’t Time
Justin and his mother go out for breakfast. You can tell they are locals because they both order the veggie omelette. I am not an egg person, but even if I was that is not what I would be brunching on in NOLA. All diet plans would be out the window and I would be a pig in trough eating everything I could before I had to leave. Or I might be more like I am in Paris trying the Croque Monsieurs at at every pub in town. In NOLA I would be on a muffaletta tour. And a beignet tour. And an oyster po boy tour. And a gumbo tour. Because, yum.
Justin tells his mother that Kelsey is ready to get married and have kids and he is not there yet. She wisely advises him that Kelsey is not going to let him wasted her time much longer. She says this should be an easy decision for him. She says Kelsey is a lovely young woman and he doesn’t want to let her get away.
Barry Gives His Son The Talk
On RHOBH when the housewives chat with their kids they are usually older than 16. Except for newcomer Denise Richards. It seem a bit weird to me that Barry and Tamica’s son, Hunter who is 16 is having so much of his life exposed. I remember Bella Hadid’s DUI getting discussed on camera. But this feels different for some reason.
Although, we all know the racial profiling discussion has to happen. That’s a good learning tool. I don’t know I just feel a bit bad for Hunter having his speeding issues made so public. Last week, Tamica was trying to imply that Barry needed to be more involved with Hunter. This week, she is pissed because Barry is making the decisions regarding his son.
After the moving Jon Moody pop-up show (see below) Barry has a serious discussion with Hunter. It’s mostly about no knocking anyone up. He is concerned about Hunter succumbing to peer pressure. And avoiding jail before going to college in a year or so
Son Of A Saint
I love Jon Moody and all of his philanthropy. And his art. The Obamas own his art. Lee Daniels owns his art. It’s been on Empire. Jon is getting ready to have another art show that ties in to the struggles in black male youth in NOLA. His paintings go from mid to high five figures or more. His two pieces will also have a video to push the theme home.
Jon’s pop-up art show is at a restaurant called NOSH. Tamica makes fun of Jon’s lime green neoprene turtleneck. I would love to share how awesome John looks but Bravo is very cheap on the previews for this show. The skits by the kids were unsettlingly real. Like it’s hard to see the laptop screen. The point was made.
I love how Rachel’s chyron is “Everyone’s Friend.” Then Reagan goes up to Rachel while she is taking to Reece and demands to know if this is a positive moment. Rachel is not amused. And once again, Jon Moody’s amazing pop-up art show becomes all about Reagan. Tamica and everyone else are over Reagan’s “all about me” behavior. Reagan doesn’t get it. Also, how are they going to Destin next week if her wedding is only a week away?
Reagan cries and wants to go home. Reece wants to have more wine. He’s overruled. Reagan goes storming off for the long back across the lake. How will Reece go that long without alcohol?
On next week’s Southern Charm NOLA recap, we all head to Destin. I can’t believe how long it has been since I was there. It is the quickest beach to get to from Atlanta. Though Isle of Palms (Charleston) isn’t much farther. Anyway EVERYONE has those lime green neoprene turtlenecks and wears them for a dance off. The guys go deep sea fishing. This is not nearly as fun as it sounds in real life. Do Not Recommend! Tamika and Barry renew their vows. Does that seem odd to anyone else right before your BFF gets married?
