On tonight’s RHOC Recap, the ladies have one last day to whoop it up in Key West before heading back home to their realities. But first, production has set up a trip to The Hemingway Home and only Emily, Kelly and Braunwyn are going. I would LOVE to go to The Hemingway Home, especially if I could avoid the cats and the cruise ship tourists. I guess the others didn’t go because there won’t be any booze. Also, I am ignoring Tamra’s attempt to be dumb because she thinks it is cute or funny. No one is that dumb.
Vicki has a sprained ankle that has been wrapped to look like a big deal. Let’s see how long it takes before she is whooping it up on that bad ankle. I give it until mid-afternoon. I enjoyed the tour. It looks like they closed it for them. Can we end the episode here?
Facing Your Fears Doesn’t Seem Fun
Well, Vicki didn’t even wait until mid-afternoon. She took that bandage off and went parasailing first thing in the morning. Meanwhile, Kelly, Emily and Braunwyn went jet skiing. It was there we learn that the reason Emily is so good at jet skiing is because she used to date a drug dealer. How does one get from drug dealer to Mormon? Were there steps in between? Maybe a guy with a DUI followed by a guy who runs a major non-profit? Because otherwise it seems like quite the leap. Gina clearly never dated a drug dealer. She is terrified on the jetski. Shannon wasn’t that scared on the para-sail!
Finally, everyone meets up for a booze cruise. Vicki brought every hats that were Stupid AF. Kelly was the only one smart enough not to wear hers. Emily talked to Kelly about her anger issues as a way to relate to her. Emily talks about flying off the handle around her kids sometimes and cries. They decide to go to producer driven anger management class. Kelly and Tamra mend fences. Vicki is in denial about all the things she does to Kelly.
Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jog
They didn’t get enough good footage in Key West apparently, because we are quickly back home. But all the promos Bravo put out were from the trip so I am using what I have. Shannon brings a guy she has started dating, Ken (AKA Babe) to dinner with Tamra and Braunwyn and their husbands. They talk about Kelly and Vicki. Especially Vicki and her vicious attacks. Tamra and Shannon are planning Vicki’s engagement party and inviting everyone.
Gina calls her mom and tells her that they have sold the family home. Then she says that the divorce is off. She thinks they are closer now than ever. This is sad to watch. Her mom is encouraging her to work it out with Matt.
Next we get more examples of Tamra’s poor parenting. Nobody cares.
Couples Therapy Anyone?
Mike Dow, psychotherapist to the west coast reality stars meets up with Kelly and Emily for a single session of anger management therapy. This scene is already on his IMdb with every other reality show known to man. Fake TV therapy is his niche. Emily blames herself for her reactions to Shane’s verbal abuse. After a meditation mantra. They are all magically healed. And they all lived happily ever after.
WOOT! NEXT WEEK IS THE FINALE! LET US ALL PRAISE THE BABY JESUS! It’s a Boot Scoot Boogie Engagement Party and the drama is in full swing. There is of course the requisite runaway Tamra scene and everything.
