As I was pulling photos for tonight’s RHOD recap, I was struck by the fact that it’s almost impossible to find an unflattering photos of LeeAnne Locken. I get the photos by grabbing screenshots from the previews. I take a lot of screenshots and then go through and delete all the blurry ones, and the ones where people have their eyes closed etc. LeeAnne Locken looks perfect in every single one. She’s really stunning. Anyway, I am looking forward to this episode in Thailand. The travel episodes are always my favorites, even though it is mostly still brawling at dinner.
All the ladies are jetlagged on the first day in Thailand. At breakfast, I pause to google rambutan. Apparently it is a colorful fruit that is hairy on the outside. You cut it open and eat the fruit on the inside. The tastes is “sweet and sour” kind of like a grape. So now we know.
Kameron tries valiantly to tell the women about the local rules of etiquette. #1 Do not disrespect the King in any way. #2 Respect your elders. #3 No Teasing or Joking. #4 Do not stare at people. #5 Don’t whisper to someone while around other people. #6 No fighting in public.
D’Andra has bought one of Luann’s L’Infinity dresses to wear to dinner. This will not go over very well. D’Andra just loves poking the bear. But first, it is time to do some sightseeing. Kary says that lots of the beautiful women have penises. And with that knowledge, we head to the temples. They are beautiful. Brandi walks around the entire temple with “prayer hands.” It’s weird.
Hats Off To Thailand!
Kary, who has been to Thailand twice before, keeps having to be told to take her hat off before entering the temple. LeeAnne reminds her each time. This pisses Kary off. But each time she is literally trying to walk in before taking her hat off. That is not how it works. She makes a comment to Kameron and says this is her third time in Thailand and LeeAnne has never left the country before. Um, didn’t they just all go to Mexico? Kary is being a bitch this episode. I know some of you have said that before, but I’m just now getting on board with the Kary hate. She’s ruining my Thailand experience!
Brandi and Stephanie get their fortunes read. Stephanie is told she will not be murdered but will live long and die peacefully. Brandi was told that she needs either two or five children. So I guess five it is. Wait, apparently the five kids things for Stephanie! D’Andra’s fortune was basically “mama knows best.” D’Andra is also told if she doesn’t stop drinking she will need an operation.
We’re Not In Mexico Anymore!
Kary and D’Andra are the only ones trying the Thai street food. I hate when people on these shows eat at a random McDonald’s instead of trying the local food. Thai food is all the rage these days and you are in Thailand! Stephanie bought some food that she doesn’t really plan to eat just to give the appearance of being adventurous.
Leanne keeps making jabs at Kary that have to do with her being Mexican. Everyone flipped out over the trailer where Leanne is ranting about Kary and says she is supposed to be a “strong Mexican.” I didn’t have a problem with that at all. However, now that I see that she has continuously mention the Mexican thing every time she bitches about her, I can’t support LeeAnne on this issue anymore.
From Here To L’Infinity!
Before dinner, Brandi and Stephanie talk about Bruins sibling. The baby is a full sibling. She is so going to adopt this baby. Down the hall Kary and D’Andra try to figure out how to wear the L’Infinity dress. It takes forever so the rest of the gang head on the the restaurant for drinks. D’Andra can barely walk in the dress. All of the snaps are popping open. It’s a hot mess. LeeAnne is taking this well. You can tell that she is trying to to give them the satisfaction of popping off. But they just keep going and going.
Finally, Brandi and Kameron both stick up for LeeAnne. Stephanie also tells D’Andra she is hurting LeeAnne’s feelings. LeeAnne says she is not surprised at all by Kary’s behavior. But, she feels like she and D’Andra were getting back on the right track and now it’s clear they are not. The thing about RHOD is every week I feel differently about D’Andra, LeeAnne and Kary. This week, I am team LeeAnne. The other two just don’t know when to stop. D’Andra sort of apologies.
Leanne goes outside and Stephanie goes with her. Kary keeps trying to defend herself to Kameron and Brandi. Kary says that LeeAnne is a bully. She is the one being a bitch tonight. LeeAnne goes off on a rant about Kary. It’s the Mexican rant from the season previews. I am changing my mind about that AGAIN and really don’t care. Kary is a bitch.
Inside, Kary is getting pissy with Brandi for defending LeeAnne. Brandi stands her ground and says that LeeAnne was being picked on and she wasn’t just going to sit there and say nothing. Kary storms off in a huff. LeeAnne and Stephanie head back inside to a different part of the hotel. Probably because production told them too because they had no lighting to filming outside. LeeAnne finally has a meltdown in Stephanie’s arms.
Next week, we go to an elephant sanctuary. And that night they go to a ping pong show. Also we find out Kary has never used a condom.
So whose side are you on this week?
