Off to a late start on this #RHOP recap because at the last minute, a computer glitch shutdown my laptop unexpectedly, and erased all of my grunt work. But I am quickly back on track and ready to go to the Cayman Islands with this crew!
Before we even get to the island, Ashley is pissed at Katie. Nearly fifteen minutes in we are at the damn chiropractor with Monique. She must have it in her contract she has to be in every scene. So Karen is stuck watching Monique get an adjustment. Karen is headed for the Caymans loaded for bear and Gizelle is the bear. It seems these two are going to fight about Karen staying in one night when they went to New Orleans LAST SEASON. Gizelle was pissed Karen chose to do an Instagram live instead.
Let The Trash Talking Begin!
Robyn missed the flight to the Caymans. I think that is a housewives first. Especially since this is “Robyn’s trip.” The rest of the ladies arrive on time and get on the bus to the Westin. The main topic of conversation is Krazy Katie’s wig. Karen has wigs better than this. Actually, the latest wig Karen wears in her confessionals, the short blond one, should be her daily wig. It really flatters her.
However, Katie’s wig du jour once again makes her look like she is in the witness protection program. I’m not sure is Ashley’s confessional wig is worse. I think it might be. Karen is wearing a sequined minidress for the beach. I’m sure it was very expensive. It’s also not resort wear, at least for daytime. It’s like a glittery football jersey and her number is 00.
Hey! Let’s Brawl In The Hotel Lobby!
The girls facetime Robyn for their room assignments. Robyn asks Ashley to share the presidential suite with her since she has been going through so much with the Michael situation. Plus she is pissed Gizelle for acting a fool at her open house in front of potential buyers. Ashley is also in charge of things until Robyn arrives. Gizelle and Karen are in a two bedroom suite. This is not good. Candiace and Katie are in the other room.
Karen and Gizelle immediately get into it over the stupid New Orleans Instagram Live incident. Maybe that was this season? This season seems to be lasting FOREVER. Anyway, things get very out of control and Candiace of all people is trying to get them to stop embarrassing themselves in the lobby. As someone says, “the white people are staring. LOL.
Gizelle changed her room to a single, took her luggage up and left the rest behind. Oh wait, it seems she is actually crashing in the presidential suite.
Karen’s sequined football jersey looks even worse from the back with the double zeros halfway down her butt.
Later, Gizelle and Ashley talk about Katie. For some reason Ashley seems to have forgiven everyone except Katie for gossiping about Micheal’s drama. Here is the thing. They all have the right to gossip about Micheal’s incident. But they still should have been supporting Ashley at the same time and not making things worse. And Katie’s bizarre story about her boyfriend and the multiple phone lines is really odd. On the beach, Ashley tells Gizelle that Katie’s new boyfriend has no job and she is his meal ticket. He will agree with whatever she says.
Sunset Dinner On The Beach
I think Katie was shamed into wearing her real hair to dinner on the beach. Whose ever hair it is, Katie looks stunning. She’s drop dead gorgeous again for the first time all season. It makes me wonder if she is off something that her boyfriend has been feeding her. She looks so much healthier and happier. Wow, Gizelle just noticed the difference too.
Ashley immediately goes after Katie. Apparently Katie forgot to stop by Candiace’s room on the way to dinner like she said she was. Ashley says Katie has a problem with lying. There is a huge blow up between the two. Gizelle tries to mediate asking Katie if she has anything to apologize for. Katie wants to know what she is talking about. Gizelle reminds her that she did in fact say Ashley was stupid. Katie doubles down instead of apologizing. Ashley says she is not the one who move an unemployed homeless person into her house after knowing him for a month.
Sea Bass & Snapper!
Even the other ladies are trying to walk away from this fight. Katie says at least she is not married to an 80 year old. Ashley says she would be if she could. Katie says she needs more words than just ‘stupid’ and ‘dumb’ to describe Ashley.
After more back biting between Gizelle and Karen, Karen says she is having an event for her nonexistent perfume line. Gizelle asks if this is the launch. Nope, it’s a “reveal” where she will give them little roll on samples. This reminds me so much of Austen Kroll’s fake beer line. Pay for a tiny batch to be made and dress the mutton up like lamb and call it a business. When Gizelle asks why she isn’t doing her own distribution, Karen says she has to “consult with her partners.” This murky water just keeps getting murkier.
How Sane Do You Have To Be To Be On Housewives?
Katie is not quite as alert and normal as she was moments ago. Gizelle tells Katie that Ashley doesn’t open up to many people and she feels betrays by Katie. This is rich because Gizelle and Robyn have treated Ashley like shit through her entire ordeal with the Michael situation.
Ashley confronts Katie for calling Michael gay. She says she never said that but everyone else at the table has. Katie looks like the crazy is back. However, she is make a ton of sense. Why is she the one being singled out for talking about Michael’s sexuality? As Katie says, this is not a new thing. Ashley says it’s because Katie is not her friend. Katie says she doesn’t think Ashley knows who her friends are. And I agree. Ashley doesn’t seem to have any friends.
Where The The Hell Is Robyn?
The next flight out was four hours behind. These girls have filmed room scenes and beach scenes and sunset scenes and very long dinner scenes and still no Robyn. After dinner Robyn finally shows up. But she gets off the shuttle dressed and fully glammed out. So that scene was fake as fuck. Everyone is glad to see her nonetheless.
Everyone heads up to the presidential suite. Katie is officially drunk. She tells Ashley she is sorry IF she said she was dumb. Maybe she meant to say stupid. Oh Lord have mercy with this one. Then Ashley makes fun of the “horrible toupee” on Katie’s head. It is clearly the same wig now that it is all mussed. But I swear it looked good when she first came out!
Ashley says that Katie is not mentally strong enough to handle this group of women. Everyone seems appalled that Ashley said that. But I totally agree with Ashley. Katie has some very serious mental health and/or drug issues she needs to deal with based on her Instagram posts. Katie agrees with Ashley. She says she is going through a whole lot of really tough stuff right now. And if Ashley doesn’t want to be her friend because of that, then fuck you!
To Be continued…
On the next RHOP Recap, Katie appears to have gone home. The ladies take a boat tour and pet stingrays. I will never understand why people do that. Robyn confronts Gizelle.
