Sorry about missing the last Family Karma recap or two. I have been on and off the struggle bus lately. As soon as I get off the bus, it drives back by again and stupidly get right back on it. And coming on right after RHOA was a lot for a Sunday night. Tonight is sadly the finale as we only got eight episodes. I just shot an email off to my best source to ask if they will be renewed. I think we all knew the answer to that before it started. But perhaps we will be pleasantly surprised?
When I first started trying to learn who was who on this show, the guys were particularly difficult. I have very poor facial recognition skills so I look for a feature to assign to a name. Tonight I am confused again because I haven’t recapped this is a hot minute. So I’m sort of starting from scratch. My mental note for one of the guys was “he’s the one with the big ears.” The problem is they all have big ears that don’t lay flat. And they keep throwing in a random extra guy and that doesn’t help the situation.
Dance, Dance Revolution?
The gang is all gathered at Monica’s dance studio to rehearse some sort of musical number. Or just drink a lot. It’s unclear thus far. Anisha and Monica are still on the outs with each other. Anisha and Vishal haven’t really repaired their friendship either. There is a whole lot of storyline to wrap up in just one episode! The guys attempt to practice their dance routine. Errrr…it needs a lot of work.
I literally just realized that Amrit has a beard and Vishal does not. Has it been this way all season? What is wrong with my brain? While Richa and her mom, Lopa get their henna designs on their hands, Lopa has a confessional where Lopa complains because Richa will not tell her how much money Vishal makes. It’s none of her business. The interesting part for me is that Vishal works for Richa. Did we know that already?
What Is With All The Egg Freezing On These Shows?
Anisha’s mom takes her shopping for new clothes for the engagement party. She fesses up to her mother that she lied to her father about her business finances. She also tells her she would like to freeze her eggs. Mama ain’t down for that. She wants her to just get herself knocked up the old fashioned way as soon as possible. She cries because she wants a relationship with Anisha’s children and she is getting older and worries she will die before meeting them. Well this is a sad, depressing conversation. Anisha has a lot of pressure on her. I feel like I should invest in the egg freezing business. I’m not kidding.
Bali is taking her daughter to get matching tattoos as a surprise. Supposedly it’s just a very small one on her pinky finger. Bad idea Bali. This is how full arm sleeves get started. It looks like her daughter chickens outs. She probably only wanted one because she could not have one.
Rain, Rain Go Away
It’s the day of the engagement party and it’s raining. The previous night was a dinner party for the families and Vishal is hungover. At the dinner party, his father could not remember Lopa’s name while making a toast. I can remember Lopa’s name and I can’t remember shit. Was this intentional? I am sure Lopa took great offense. The party was scheduled for the rooftop but is cold and rainy and might even snow in Miami! What is a “commercial real estate advisor”?
The guests pour into the party venue wearing a beautiful array of saris. I was a bit shocked that Richa’s ensemble showed all of her bare midriff. But if that was my midriff, I’d never wear clothes at all! The venue looks amazing. I wouldn’t pay $40K for a party, but id does look lovely. The rituals and prayers were interesting. But my goodness they were LONG. It was like a full hour straight. How did we not get a good shot of the ring? The scenes with Nicholas being upset because Amrit’s mom wants to introduce him as Amrit’s “friend” were sad.
Lopa finally treats Vishal nicely. She tells him that the party went great. She even hugs him. Twice! The party ends with the guys dance. And the girls join in. It’s like a Bollywood movie scene. So did you enjoy this series?
