Please for the love of God tell me this episode is not two fucking hours long. I just did a two hour recap of 90 Day The Other way! Is this the finale? Sigh. It looks like I will be slogging through this RHOP Recap with limited comments. I hope to hell they added on WWHL and that stupid chat show because I do not need two hours of this. It looks like I missed an episode. I don’t remember Wendy wanting to stop teaching, or Monique having a podcast. Then again, I can’t remember anything. And that seemed like a season recap. So maybe I did see it.
Engagement Ring Shopping & Marital Counseling
Gizelle and Juan go shopping for Robyn’s engagement ring. I love how they act like $10K is a cheap ring at these jewelry stores. I have an expensive bracelet that I wear all the time and when I travel, it goes in the safety deposit back. No one should be wandering around with fifty thousand dollar diamond on their finger. Just as Kim Kardashian. Especially not someone who owes the IRS nearly $100k in back taxes.
Meanwhile, Karen and Juan take the boys bowling. Robyn’s parents show up for the family event. Robyn wants to tell them about her issues with the IRS. But they already found out on social media. Her dad wonders how the hell she thinks she is going to buy a house with amount of debt. Good question. While Robyn is in the bowling alley bathroom, he figures this is a good time to ask her parents permission. Really? He could not have dropped by the house? They seem fine with that.
Monique is inviting the crew to her podcast. If they all come I guess it will be the finale party. Karen and Ray get some life coaching. I don’t find this authentic at all. Wendy is having a wine gathering and everyone is invited except Monique. Then we hear Candiace claiming that the reason Twitter was so happy to hear that she got walloped was because Monique gave them…er us…some crazy version of what happened. No, bitch. You have been a verbal and physical bully since your reckless ass got on the show. It was only a matter of time until someone gave you the beatdown. Candiace tells Wendy she is going t pull Karen aside and confront her at Wendy’s event.
I’m not really clear what this podcast is all about. Is she the one with the parenting thing? Yes it the the lazy moms thing. Ashley shows up to support Monique but she is probably the only one coming. Even Karen backed out. Monique is claiming she has changed. She hasn’t. She is just starting to have remorse. Ashley lets Monique know that Karen told Candiace that she should press charges.
Wine With Wendy
Wendy just annoys the fuck out of me. I get a bad vibe from her. She hasn’t done anything in particular. I just feel like something is up with her. She is suddenly not wanting to teach anymore when that was all she talked about? I think she must have been fired. Robyn shows up in a bad wig. Candiace jokes that she is hiding from the tax man. I don’t hate it as much as the other ladies do. Candiace is trashing her despite the fact that Robyn has been defending her ass all season. I could get used to this Robyn wig.
Does Wendy not know the difference between meditation and mediation? She doesn’t seem that smart. But she was smart enough to impress the RHOP so the bar is low. Gizelle tells everyone that Wendy told her that when she was somewhere with Karen she got really drunk and told her that she put up half of her money to save Ray from the IRS. Of course Gizelle thinks this is scandalous. But, isn’t that what married couples do? That is why it is a marriage. Also what is going on with Wendy’s edges. I mean what is that???!!!
Meanwhile Karen talks to Candiace who tells her she is in therapy from the trauma. Girl you got your ass beat. Pull your big girl panties up, put your earrings back in your ears and keep it moving. Candiace is coming for Karen for not taking sides. Karen gives a really good lecture about how she stood up for her the previous season even though she was in the wrong. She is doing no more and no less for her other friend. Wow. That is the most sense I’ve ever seen Karen make! Meanwhile, Ashley says that she wants to be ther for Monique because she didn’t implicate Michael in the butt grab. The other girls took it as so she didn’t lie on Michael. No ladies. By now we have all seen the footage of Michael smacking the producers ass when he walked by.
I hope Wendy is a one and done. I’m starting to be a Karen fan. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition. Oh Lord. I forgot about Portugal. I guess that will be fun. And Monique presses charges on Candiace.
