Tonight’s RHOP recap will focus a lot on Katie. It seems that people are starting to realize she is going through a lot, and are going to be kinder toward her. That’s a novel concept for a housewives show. I have a feeling things get worse for Katie before the season ends though since she wasn’t invited to the reunion. Or maybe she really did bail on the Caymans trip and go home. That would have pissed off production.
I don’t recall any other friend being totally excluded from the reunion. Since filming ended, Katie has broken up with the into she filmed with this season and gotten engaged to another idiot. It seems she plans to live in LA. That will not help her get to see her kids. Though I’m not convinced she is mentally well enough to have unsupervised visitation.
We pick up at the end of the fight between Ashley and Katie. I think it is terrible how Ashley goes so hard on the one woman she seems to understand isn’t mentally stable. The next morning, Ashley talks to her mom and realizes that she reacted badly with Katie.
The green eyed bandits meet for breakfast. They briefly talk about Katie and all agree to be kinder to her from here on out based on her situation. Then, Gizelle starts trashing Karen over her “perfume line.” Gizelle says that she doesn’t believe that Karen owns the company and that she is just a spokesperson. That’s all well and good, but Karen doesn’t need to lie to make things seem like more than they are. I agree with Gizelle. Gizelle says that they will all support Karen regardless. Now that, I don’t believe.
Wigs On Tight!
The ladies take a breezy boat ride out to pet some stingrays. Gizelle compliments Karen on her wig and how it is staying on. I must admit Karen’t wigs have been a lot better this season.
There is no way in hell I would get in the water to pet stingrays. As Ashley pointed out, Steve Irwin was killed by a stingray. Katie is the only one to opt out of the stupidity. She says her stomach bothering her. Ashley goes up to check on her. She gives Katie a very sincere apology and Katie kindly accepts the olive branch.
More Unexpected Apologies
Everyone lived through the stingrays and they are off for a sail. Karen pretends to work on her “perfume line” over the phone. They stop at a gorgeous beach for lunch. I want literally everything they are ordering. Candiace is so desperate for some camera time that she gives a lame apology to Ashley. It went along the lines of sorry if I unintentionally offended you. Then she demands an apology from Ashley for “intentionally” trying to harm her. All she said was Candiace lives off of her mother. These are facts. Ashley apologizes for the shady comment. That’s not good enough for Candiace.
Some of the ladies go out on jet skis. Karen rides on the back of an instructor. I don’t blame her. She did not enjoy herself. After surviving yet another scary water experience, she goes to talk to Katie. She is very kind to Katie.
Katie stops by the suite and tells Robyn and Ashley that she is not up to going out with the girls that night. For some reason production decided Katie should be the one who brings up Gizelle’s behavior at Robyn’s open house. Ashley encourages Robyn to address her feelings with Gizelle. Is this the finale? They sure are wrapping up a lot of feuds this week.
Robyn talks to Katie about how she is feeling and based on her symtoms, she wonders if she is pregnant. Oh wow. For some reason I thought the miscarriage happened before filming began. But maybe not. She says she has had unprotected sex a lot. Her period is due today.
It’s Dinner Time, AKA Fight Time
In the van ride over it was evident that Candiace was trying to gets something going with Ashley again. Girl, she just apologized to you! You are the one that gave a conditional apology. Sit down. This dinner is all about Robyn and Gizelle.
Robyn tells Gizelle that her behavior was very rude and inconsiderate at her open house. Gizelle gives a heartfelt apology. She asks Robyn for forgiveness. This is the way adult friends has out their differences. In Gizelle’s talking head, she points out that Robyn never really takes offense to anything. She realizes she really screwed up.
The topic moves on to Robyn and Juan possibly getting married. Ashley says Juan told Michael he wants to put a ring on it. Juan wants to have a baby girl. Robyn says her baby maker is is closed.
Ashley has a strange idea that Candiace’s name should be on her husband’s cookbook. That’s just ridiculous. Ah, it seems that production does want another confrontation between Candiace and Ashley. Gizelle suggests the two of them go work things out privately. Maybe at breakfast the next morning.
The girls all salsa together. All in all that was a great dinner. That hardly ever happens. Before going to their room, Karen and Candiace go to check on Katie. she is fully dressed in a new outfit with a scarf and a jacket. She’s totally going to make a break for it. Karen also mentioned the jacket and scarf.
The next morning Ashley and Candiace go to yoga and for the second or third time on this trip call a truce. Candiace is not a yoga person. Candiace isn’t being authentic on the beach. She agrees to the truce on the beach. But in her talking heads she is still trashing Ashley.
The two run into Gizelle on the way back into the hotel. She informs them that Katie has taken all her toys and gone home.
Next week’s RHOP recap may not be as drama-free as this one. Some finds Katie. But where? Ashley and Karen get into a huge screaming match. #Namaste Apparently, Karen says that she thinks Micheal is guilty even though the prosecutors declined to prosecute due to lack of evidence.
