So I was catching up on the hurricane situation on CNN when all of the sudden the channel over to Bravo. Apparently, there is a new episode of RHOP airing right now. I have no idea why. But it looks like starting a week from Sunday the show will finish out on Sundays. So I am totally unprepared for this RHOP recap. Also, It’s 8pm and I just realized that today is SUNDAY. I thought it was Saturday all day long. All of this stupid anxiety has fried my brain. I must say finding out that it is Sunday night and not Saturday night is not a good feeling.
I shall valiantly forge ahead because I am actually enjoying this franchise this season. And we are still in the Caymans. I feel like watching the ocean on TV is almost as good as being there. Okay not really. But, I will take what I can get.
Katie Rost and all of her stuff is gone from her room. Since she was sick, I thought perhaps she had gone to the hospital but if that were it, her luggage would still be in her room.
Oh, Joy! It’s going to be a fireworks night in the ghetto. Sigh. Everyone is concerned, except for Karen who is not surprised. Finally, the mystery is solved. Katie was somehow found at the airport. Now, how did hotel security figure that out? Karen seems to have known all along. Gizelle is pissed. One of the producers enters the scene. Apparently, Katie told her she wasn’t feeling well and she needed to go home.
The ladies all go horseback riding. Ashley doesn’t want to ride horses because she doesn’t agree with using animals “for pleasure instead of utility.” WTF? Gizelle points out that Ashley eats kangaroo. They are going to ride bareback. Gizelle reminds us the the brown dick guy still wears a condom with Candiace. Gizelle lasts about two seconds on the horse and has had enough. Karen makes it to the bareback portion for the ocean ride. But when her horse gets an attitude with another horse, she’s out. Basically, only Robin and Candiace enjoyed the experience. I’m not sure I’d want to do this either.
Candiace and Gizelle go on a submarine excursion. Nope. No,mam. I’m claustrophobic just thinking about it. The other three ladies go visit some caves. Again, not happening for me. I’ll be on the beach drinking a pina colada while some kid rubs my feet. These people are not vacationing properly. Then again, they have to do all of these things for their free rooms. Oh Lord, Candiace and Gizelle are the only ones on the sub. Over in the caves there are bats flying around. No, mam. Just no.
Gizelle and Candiace ignore the whole submarine trip and film a scene about Ashley and the Michael mess. On the way back from the caves the topic was Karen’s “perfume line.”
It’s Dinner Time!
It’s already time for dinner and that means all of the getting along they have been doing all day must come to an end because it’s time to fight and argue. I would like a banana daiquiri and the red snapper please.
Shots! It’s What’s For Dinner
They talk about Katie for a bit. Karen thinks Katie is extremely intelligent. Perhaps so, but she is also extremely crazy. Then, the waiter suggests they do some shots. That is such a bad recommendation. Ashley wants fireball. Have these women not watched other seasons? Fireball is a big no. But, they all suck down shots. Many shots.
Since I have not had any shots, I am not prepared to recap this scene. Let’s just say, Karen gives a demonstration of how she kisses her husband and leave it at that. Shall we?
More shots come because it is a full moon. Any little excuse will do, right?
When they go back to the hotel, everyone is loving “fun Karen!” Even Ashley. But Karen wants to have an off camera conversation with Ashley. They are miked so of course we hear the whole thing. Then, the cameras show up.
Karen basically tells Ashley that Michael was not vindicated from the charges. He most definitely was. The charges were thrown out because despite cameras and people everywhere, that was no evidence that a crime had occurred. Ashley is right. She doesn’t understand the court system.
Oh this is going down the rape road. I am so sick of this. I am not covering that part. And please no rape stories in comments. Shutup Karen.
Gizelle and Robyn throw Karen out of the suite. Thank God. The next morning Gizelle goes to Karen’s room for breakfast. Did Karen shower with a wig on? Or is that a weave? These are my burning questions. Gizelle tries to get Karen to apologize to Ashley.
When will Ashley apologize for this confessional look? Karen apologizes for the way she came at Ashley. Then she randomly started spewing rape statistics. Le sigh. Karen says that Michael should have apologized to Ashley for ….”putting her through this.” Ashley says he has apologized. But Karen would not know that because she never reached out a hand of support to her at all.
Ashley was out of the country both times that Karen’s parents died and she texted her immediately to extend sympathy and ask if she was okay. When the news broke about Michael, Karen never checked on her once. Still, Ashley accepts her apology.
Everyone gets ready for another dinner. Ashley is wearing a white sailor suit. She is also expecting her period. I am hearing that Sesame Street song, “One of these things is not like the other” If you catch my drift. On the other hand. She is hoping she is pregnant.
It’s a nautical themed sunset cruise. Now this I would totally be into. Everyone agrees that they all bonded on the trip. YAY! for happy endings! Robyn jumped into the ocean from the boat. She’s a daredevil that one.
Back To Reality
Then filming picks up back in Potomac. Ashley takes a pregnancy test. She’s pregnant! But we won’t find that out until next Sunday on the finale. She is now the proud mom of a baby boy. And despite Michael’s initial hesitancy, he is a doting dad on Instagram.
Next week on the RHOP recap, it’s the season finale. Karen has her perfume party, but will there be any perfume? Candiace tell her mom she wants to take over the mortgage on the house she lives in. Robyn wants to get tattoos with Juan.
Overall, this was a good episode with just the right amount of drama.
