I thought it was a double recap night, but am thrilled that it is only a RHOC recap for tonight! I’ve been quasi productive today and ready to knock this out and then be lazy for the rest of the night. As a former teacher, I sometimes feel like I need the week off for Thanksgiving and two weeks for Christmas and you know, two weeks in the summer, lol. But, I will say I much prefer being my own boss.
We start this episode Braunwyn trying to convince Kelly to go on the Florida trip. Please. Kelly would not miss this trip in for the world. I also don’t understand why Braunwyn and her husband are going down early “to open up their house” when I am pretty sure they all stayed in a hotel. ICYMI I covered this trip with the help of local spies here at the time they took this trip in May. Kelly calls all the other girls witches and then production plays a hilarious compilation of the others cackling.
In a dueling scene, Gina and Tamra go shopping for clothes for the trip. Why do you need a new swim suit and a complete new wardrobe for every trip? That’s almost as dumb as bringing three or four giant suitcases for a weekend at the beach. Kelly tweeted support to Jim Bellino about Tamra. I think that defamation case is still open. A Judge threw out the case against Shannon and Jim had to pay for her lawyers.
Gina tells Tamra that she and Matt recently got a hotel room in Laguna and “a lot of things went on in that hotel room.” Also he has been sending her flowers and trying to woo her. Oh, Gina, gurl… don’t do that! Gina is sure that Matt loves her and would never cheat on her again.
Easy Come, Not So Easy Go…
Shannon is trying to finally end her marriage to David once and for all after two long years of fighting. Shannon looks AMAZING going into to court. That has to be some sweet revenge.
Emily, Gina and Tamra head over to Vicki’s for some sort of surprise. Shannon will be there later after she gets out of court. The big surprise was Vicki’s giant engagement ring. No sooner does that news come out than in walks Shannon to talk about her divorced settlement. Click here if you missed how she made out with that. Shannon says that David was actually nice in court. She said that David emailed her the day of the settlement to tell her that she is proud of her. When talking about the trip, Tamra and Shannon say their attorneys told them not too talk to Kelly because she is trying to stir the pot with Jim Bellino about their lawsuit. This should make for an interesting trip.
Briana & Ryan Bring The Boys To Visit Vicki
Briana is loving life in North Carolina. She has been on the Keto diet for her Lupus and has lost 60 pounds. She looks incredible and feels great. Briana says that she has never been happier in North Carolina and will never move back to Orange County. Briana approves of Vicki’s marriage to Steve. Tamra visits with Briana and we get flashbacks to Brooks. UGH. They take a family photo and Steve asks if he should stand on the end in case Vicki wants to cut him out later. Good plan! Vicki and Brooks are still battling over money Vicki claims she loaned Brooks.
Miami Ooh La La
I could have sworn Braunwyn said she and her husband were going to Miami to “open up their house.” Yet, here they are in a comped small hotel room promoted by Bravo. I can’t get into Braunwyn or her husband. And I normally love gay guys.
I do however, ADORE Emily who packed one suitcase for the Miami trip. Once they land, Braunwyn and her husband pick them up in two Maseratis. They are staying at The Confidante. I am not familiar with Miami so I don’t know much about the place. But again? Did I mishear Braunwyn talking about her house there? The hotel is very cute and very Miami. Braunwyn sent flowers and champagne to Vicki’s room to congratulate her on her wedding. That seems to have done the trick as Vicki goes to her room to thank her.
EW. They are going to E11EVEN. I went there years ago like a couple decades ago and I hated it then. It was way over rated, I was there on a business trip and went by myself and no one would talk to me. I’m sure I was not dressed appropriately. I did somehow wind up in the VIP section for a bit though. Even that was not fun. I felt too old for the place then. I don’t remember there being strippers back then. Everyone got naked wasted and several of them tried to strip. So obnoxious.
Back at the hotel they head straight to the bar. It was way too loud to argue at E11EVEN. Kelly told Shannon her hair looks like shit. She tells Gina her super blond hair looks like shit too. Kelly is bad at making friends.
Braunwyn’s husband stayed in their room to fold Braunwyn’s clothes and pack them. The ladies go out to the pool for drinks. Shannon comes in to chat with Braunwyn about Kelly. Shannon looks super cute. Everyone ends up at the pool talking about Kelly. Kelly shows up and sits all by herself. Kelly says that Shannon has no reason not to talk to her since her case was dismissed. Shannon is still mad at her. Kelly says that Tamra is the one who keeps telling lies about her. Tamra lies about the things she said about Kelly. Tamra screeches at Kelly that she didn’t do anything to Kelly and blames Vicki. Eventually, Tamra tells Kelly to go suck some more dick for money. And…… SCENE.
Next week, the three amigas get batshit drunk in Key West. It’s another episode of Grannies Gone Wild. One of the grannies gets carted off in an ambulance. As usual. It’s probably Vicki. Vicki has also been contacting the woman that Kelly got in a fist fight with at her kid’s school. Good Grief. These women are vicious.
