It’s Sunday night and that means lots of recapping! I’m going to start with a RHOP recap tonight because most of you are more interested in Potomac than 90 Day Fiance the other way. And if I do 90 Day first the RHOP suffers. Tonight, Wendy is having a sip and see. Is she even southern? It’s weird to me that so many housewives franchises are adopting southern traditions. I mean it’s fine. Just odd. Moving on…
Everyone seems to be loving this season of RHOP! But it seems to have lost it’s status a bit what with Robyn owing 90K to the IRS just a few years after filing for bankruptcy. Apparently she thinks she is going to make money selling hats. She says she has made 10K doing that. I do not believe her. Karen and the Black Bill Gates being estranged and Candiace and Monique coming to blows. Not to mention Michael’s wandering penis…it’s just not the escapism I need right now like some of the 90 Day Fiance shows are.
Wendy’s Husband, Eddie Is Estranged From His Family
Okay this makes sense, it’s a Nigerian version of a sip and see with lots of cultural traditions. This should be interesting and educational. Eddie seems to be on the outs with his family. It seems that Eddie’s mother was in some sort of a disagreement with Wendy’s mother when they were dating. And at some point Eddie’s mother became strongly against him marrying Wendy. So they stopped talking and Eddie’s mother refused to go to the wedding. Then his siblings decided to side with their mother. At least that is Wendy’s version.
Ashley & Michael Go For Counseling
Ashley tells the therapist that they had a relationship in the past where any sexual encounters outside the marriage were with the both of them. And his latest indiscretion violated they agreed upon rules. And even moreso, now that they have a baby she would like to end those sorts of relationships and be more focused on the child. Michael says that since the baby has arrived he is feeling isolated because Ashley spends so much time caring for the baby. It sounds like a cop out when I type it but Michael did seem very sincere. I try not to judge other people’s consensual relationships. Later, Ashley’s family drop by and her psuedodad seems to want to speak to him.
On the other hand, I am not a fan of how Karen interacts with her husband. Like Michael, he feels like Karen doesn’t pay him enough attention either. She ignores him and then gets mad that he has fallen out of love. Her husband thinks that the fame has gone to her head. It’s going to be another divorce by Bravo.
Candiace Goes To File Charges Against Monique
On the way to file the charges she talks to her mother on the phone. Apparently, she could not go with her and neither could her husband, Chris. So instead she had to enlist her friend Clinton to film with her so she could download us on what happened at the courthouse. So basically what happened was she filed a second degree assault charge on Monique. The sentence could be ten years in prison and or a $2,500 fine. Candiace told them that she wanted Monique prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Clifton is a very supportive friend.
Candiace also wants Monique’s social media admitted as evidence. Everyone on social media, okay not everyone, but most people on social media was totally team Monique. Monique played into that a little bit. She posted things like “Ask and you will receive.” This was clearly meant to be read in reference to all the times Candiace begged Monique to drag her ass before Monique gave her what she asked for. Also she liked a lot of tweets that were very anti-Candiace. That wasn’t a particularly smart thing for Monique to do. Candiace is upset that Karen is sort of riding the fence on this catfight. I should point out her that in Potomac, anyone can go file charges. That is what happened to Michael when the producer filed charges on him. The charges were dropped by the prosecutors office. They don’t like getting into these petty reality show spats.
Time For The Sip & See!
Who has a sip and see for fifty people at a museum? A normal sip and see is family and very close friends coming over to the house to get a glimpse of the new baby. And most of the time, you are not allowed to touch the child. And the kid is a bit old for a sip and see. Eddie really wants his kids to know his parents so he texts his mother with an invitation and asks her to extend it to his entire family.
Robyn arrives at the sip and see and she is literally the only one there. Not even Wendy and the fam are there yet. Monique was either not invited (as Wendy says) or excluded by production (which is more likely). On the ride over people begin to get the news regarding Monique’s charges. I love Monique’s mom! I love how she hold the baby like a Lion King! And, I love all the head ties and hats. The baby’s outfit is adorable! Did Candiace bring her own Corona Lights? lol. I am not sure why this recap is taking sofa king long. I guess I have a lot to say tonight?
These ladies are willing to try new foods and I like that. But over dinner, the conversation is about Monique and the potential jail time. Gizelle says we don’t want her to go to jail. Candiace responds, “We don’t?” Ashley tries to defend Monique a little bit but she was not there when shit went down. She had excused herself to the restroom. Ashley says she could hear it all from the bathroom and Candiace was in Monique’s face. The green eyed monsters remind her that she was not there. Candiace accuses Ashley of being paid to defend Monique. Then, Candiace reminds Ashley that she is already married to a millionaire and doesn’t need anyone’s money. Candiace shoots back, “Congratulations, not for long.”
At this point Chris says to Ashley, “Shut up! STOP TALKING!” He seems like a decent guy I don’t know how he ended up with Candiace. Karen took some heat for not fully supporting Candiace since Monique is her friend. Sadly, none of Eddie’s family showed up to the sip and see.
