Wednesday night is so jam packed with good shows it is ridiculous for Bravo to expect me to do a RHOC recap in any sort of a timely way. The Amazing Race episode I just recapped was one of the best shows I have seen since quarantine. I am not going to miss it for RHOC. RHOC did not go into quarantine so we will at least get to see Shannon Storms and her whole famdamily get the COVID. I could have sworn Kelly Dodd said they didn’t get the COVID in Orange County.
One of my Tweeps is strongly campaigning for a boycott of this season because Kelly Dodd is a racist. This is because someone gave her a DRUNK WIVES MATTER hat at her bridal shower. Really? That is what makes her a racist? I done tole y’all she was a racist before she filmed her first scene! I firmly expected her to be fired then. Kelly Dodd has been a racist her entire life! And she’s not the only one on this show… Let’s just get to it.
A Change Is Gonna Come
Way they start with some flashbacks to RHOC gone by, that now includes Vicki and Tamra but they go back even further. And they will all be wrapped in virginal white dresses this season it seems. Who is doing the talking? The new girl?
Shannon has a new man, John who seems nice enough I guess. And she has a new house. John has three older kids and they are one big happy family that does not live together. On of Shannon’s kids as a lot of ear piercings. I feel like that is a cry for help. IJS. But Shannon, John and all six kids seem very happy.
Rick and Kelly and Kelly’s daughter are also getting along. And Kelly just married Rick last weekend. Kelly’s daughter is 13 and suddenly a handful. Kelly deserves this. They take Rick to get his tarot read.
Gina has a new house and is apparently not in a casita anymore. Shannon brought her a housewarming gift…nine lemons in a bowl. It’s actually a normal person’s house. These two bond over their hatred for Braunwyn. I can’t even remember who I hated yesterday let alone who hates who on this show. Kelly and Braunwyn are both moving into “Shannon’s neighborhood.”
Meet The New Girl
Kelly and Braunwyn are off to pick up the new girl, Elizabeth. I haven’t paid any attention to her at all. During this pandemic, I’m doing the best I can to post at all. Kelly is the designated housewife to introduce Elizabeth. Apparently, they used to be next door neighbors. She’s rich. When this was filmed, her beautiful beach house seemed to be a LONG way to the beach. I mean she is on the beach and there is nothing built between her house and the ocean, but that’s a very low tide or there is some sort of inability to build due to sinking sand or something. It’s a beautiful view with cactus and stuff. There is a bike path super close to her deck and the ladies flirt with the teenagers.
Elizabeth’s billionaire ex had a kid with someone else. She wanted a kid and he didn’t so that was basically the end of the relationship. Elizabeth’s neighbor shows up on a bike to return Kelly’s crockpot. I’m bored. Across town, Emily and Shane celebrate their 11th anniversary. I don’t think this will need a new paragraph. So, let’s just watch.
I’m So Bored
I get it, they all live in the same Newport Beach community now. Shannon walks over to see Braunwyn’s new house. It’s very pretty. They moved because they needed more space. Is this show ever going to start? Kelly and Braunwyn go to hot yoga. I sort of miss that torture. But not that much. It’s quarantine. Too much wine and too much ice cream is really all we have. A lot of emphasis has been put on Braunwyn’s drinking. As if any of these woman have the right to judge. Gina has gained her quarantine 15 BEFORE quarantine so God bless her she’s going to have to double down on yoga if this shit ever ends.
Shannon and Kelly hate each other at the moment. Elizabeth is getting a bit more interesting. She married some old billionaire and got enough money to start her own business and then dumped him. That seems to be her version. Braunwyn, Kelly and Shannon meet up. I know this recap is disjointed. Most of it is the choppy editing and the rests is this is like the fourth hour of my recaps in a row. They all seem to come on the same night and I have two more hours of recapping to go. Le sigh. Kelly and Shannon are trying to make up. Kelly gave Shannon a deck of Uno cards because her other two tres amigas are gone. These two have no place to go so they make up.
Winding Things Down
Gina likes new boyfriend, Travis. Gina and Matt have decided to divorce amicably and get along and co-parent. Things are calming down on the lawsuit/restraining order front and they all just want to get along for the sake of the kids. We shall see how long that lasts.
Braunwyn and Emily make amends. Emily has had a hip replacement. It was barely mentioned. Braunwyn lets us know that her real problem at the moment is that she is getting a divorce. I would reckon this sort of thing happens when your husband has a “love nest” near his office. Or maybe I am out to far in the story line and Braunwyn start saying she has a drinking problem and doesn’t plan to drink because she is an alcoholic. I hope Braunwyn feels better soon.
The previews look depressing. I don’t think we are ever going to get out of this. PLEASE VOTE.
