There is way too much to recap on Wednesday nights. So I just got all set up to do a Potomac recap and then realized it was a RHOC recap I needed to do. Ugh. Let’s hope this is a good episode. It looks like there will be a lot of Braunwyn. I have her name spelled two different ways in tags and I suppose I should attempt to find the right way to spell it. Also, I have no photos for this episode to speak of.
I probably should have gone back and watched the first episode again because I don’t remember the scenes they are showing now. Then again I had to ask someone how to open the gas tank on a car I have had for 13 years the other day because I had no idea where the release latch was so it probably would not have helped. The big news is that Braunwyn thinks she is probably an alcoholic. I really never paid her much attention and I am so used to all the housewives being drunk and disorderly, it wasn’t even a blip on my radar.
Nobody Misses Vicki Or Tamra
Kelly and Emily get together to chat about their castmates. Kelly tells Emily that Shannon has been calling her. Emily says, “Why? Because her two asshole friends are gone?” LOL. I’m liking this episode already. Kelly says that Shannon is her new neighbor. They both say they can’t trust Shannon. Kelly and Shannon are either okay and or mortal enemies. Emily says that Tamra and Vicki controlled Shannon. That is probably true.
I’m sad that yet another summer passed without me seeing the ocean. Meanwhile, new housewife Elizabeth has family in town. Her family thinks Liz has a spending problem. Don’t they all? Liz has a boyfriend named Jimmy that she apparently picked up in a bar and he moved in. Liz is half Mexican and half German. She does not know how to speak Spanish. I miss my Mexican class moms making me Tamales.
It’s Valentines Day
Aw…. remember February when we all had hope that 2020 would be better than 2019? Braunwyn and her estranged husband film to talk about her drinking problem. We see their 2019 Valentines Day flashback when they were still intimate. But really, if your husband has a love nest near his office? Something is going on there. Braunwyn says she still loves him but they are going through the motions of being married. Braunwyn is fourteen days sober. She is worried that her friends won’t want to hang out with her sober.
Shannon is still trying to run her fish and cheese food company using the 30K month that she gets in spousal support. Is she selling water now? Why? Shannon doesn’t make good decisions. Her new boyfriend, John, is part of her company now. So is his daughter Juliet. Things move fast with this one.
Tequila Truth Serum
Gina and Emily go out for tacos and margaritas. They are friends again this season. So that is good I guess. Gina has not met Liz yet and she will meet her at Emily’s daughter’s birthday party. Emily tells Gina that Braunwyn is talking trash about Gina in general and her “small” 1600 square foot house. Gina feels like Braunwyn is an elitist. They both drink a ton of tequila. Then, they proclaim themselves the Dos Idiotas! They mock Braunwyn’s 8000 square foot home. They wonder who is paying for Braunwyn’s house. What does her husband even do?
Oh God. They are both wasted and Gina thinks they should call Braunwyn! This is a terrible idea! Gina confronts Braunwyn for talking shit about her. She says she absolutely is saying bad things about her. Because, Gina trash talks her husband. Gina says she doesn’t remember doing that and Braunwyn says that all the bleach must have gone to her brain. Braunwyn tells her to come say it to her face and then hangs up. Gina shares a text that Shaun, Braunwyn’s husband sent her after they were at filming together. It was a bit …odd. Emily tells her to call Braunwyn back. Oh, such a bad idea. Apparently, Tamra is still trying to stir the shit. Braunwyn hung up on Gina again. Methinks there is some sexual tension between Braunwyn’s husband and Gina.
Meanwhile, Kelly is getting along better with her mom. God we are only halfway through and I have 800 words already. Why is this RHOC recap taking me forever to write! Kelly is turning to her mother. It happens to all of us. Kelly is already worried that her daughter is drinking.
Braunwyn Confesses To Braunwyn
Braunwyn and Elizabeth got shopping at a place called the Anthill. I’m not really sure how to describe it. Because, I’m not really sure what it is. I guess they are shopping for Emily’s daughter, Annabelle’s seventh birthday part. Braunwyn tells Liz that Gina is telling everyone that her husband hit on her. We saw the text. It was a bit odd but it wasn’t the come on that Braunwyn is claiming. Does Liz have a fake ass? Then Liz starts talking about his alcoholic dad. Then Braunwyn shares with us that her dad was an alcoholic to. This is not going to go well. Liz ends her story with “What is up with these alcoholics?” Then we find out Braunwyn’s mom called Tamra to tell her Braunwyn has stopped drinking.
Braunwyn is driving to the party because since she is not drinking she does not need a production vehicle. She stops by to pick up Shannon. She is very worried that Shannon won’t be her friend anymore since she has stopped drinking. On the way there, Braunwyn asks Shannon if she has talked to Tamra today. I rewound four times and still have no idea what Shannon said. Braunwyn says that he mom is calling Tamra and sharing her personal information. Then Shannon is sure that Braunwyn is pregnant. Braunwyn says she’s not, she’s an alcoholic. Braunwyn says her mother was blackmailing her with that information if she didn’t say everything she said about her mother was a lie. Apparently, they were going to dinner, not the birthday party
Birthday Party Blow Up?
I think I am approaching hour three of this recap. I am mentally slooooooow today. But I need to get to Big Brother! And then do MAFS! I can’t afford to be slow! Braunwyn throws Shannon under the bus to Emily for trashing Gina’s new house. Then Gina walks in and it is about to go down. Gina meets Liz for the first time and they seem very cordial. Braunwyn doesn’t acknowledge Gina. Braunwyn and her husband think Gina owes them an apology. Meanwhile Emily fans the flames by letting Gina know that Shannon told Braunwyn her new condo is sad and depressing. Not everyone walked away from their marriage with millions of dollars, Shannon. Gina has no spousal support or child support at the moment.
We were lead to believe this would be the big blow up of night, but Braunwyn and her husband bail early. So nothing happened. Next week Shannon lies and denies what she said.
