It’s time for a RHOC Recap Um YAY! This season’s ratings are bad! I’m sure Vicki and Tamra are loving it. It seems Braunwyn’s sobriety is not a compelling storyline. Not to mention the other girls are trying to ice her out. The franchise needs someone to fill the Tamra and Vicki void and they don’t want it to be Braunwyn. Let’s get right through this because I’m super far behind my start time!
We pick up with Shannon’s ridiculous housewarming party for her new rental. It’s also sort of a PSA about why we should not drink tequila. Braunwyn and Emily get into a big fight and Braunwyn has just made her Tamraesque screaming hissyfit exit. Has she read the whole playbook? Will we next see her hiding in the bushes? Sean is still there at the party screaming at the other women. I am back to not knowing who is Emily and who is Gina again. Okay. I was right. Sean gets Gina to go out and talk to Braunwyn. Braunwyn apologizes. Then they talk about the text that Sean sent Gina. That escalates things again.
Watching Someone White Knuckle Sobriety Is Not Good TV
Seriously, this is painful to watch. It is weird that they all rented within walking distance of each other. Braunwyn goes home to vent to her 17 year old daughter. Once again we had to toast to Shannon’s microwaved fish and cheese. How many seasons do we have to do this? Then we get the house tour. We must include the home gym where there is a wall sized painting of Shannon’s face. Let’s move on to Kelly being inappropriate with Shannon’s dad in front of his date.
I’m not really sure that the Kelly and Rick story is going to be interesting. Rick does seem to be a really good houseboy who does whatever she wants. Gina is still trying to work out custody with Matt. She is over Matt and is fine being friends with his sidepiece, Britt. Britt has a daughter at the same school as her kids. One of the kids is having a birthday and she invites Matt and Britt to the party. Didn’t he beat the living shit out of Gina?
Is That a New Face?
A friend of Gina’s stops by her small and sad condo and I keep waiting or a chyron to tell me who it is? Does she have a sister? Then I realize it is Emily. To me she looks totally different. It’s probably just my facial recognition issues but I recognized her in the confessional, but not in the scene. They two are headed out on an errand and Emily still wants to trash talk Braunwyn. Even when Braunwyn is not it the scene, it is all about Braunwyn. Elizabeth and Kelly are talking about her on their shopping trip too.
I think watching hour 47 ot the election counting would have been more interesting than this. Braunwyn wants to do another vow renewal? I thought they were separated. I wish there was tape or texts about Shannon saying Gina’s house was sad. I’m sick of hearing about it. Emily continues her neighborhood visits at Kelly’s house. Guess what they talk about. Did you guess Braunwyn’s drinking. Then Braunwyn calls and Kelly invites her over. Sean of course comes along and they bring her gifts. It’s a Mezuzah or her front door. Is Braunwyn Jewish? Is Kelly? Mercifully, my DVR ends right there.
