How is this only episode 8 of this season? How? I feel like I’ve struggles through at least a dozen RHOC Recaps this season. And they are all so repetitive! Tonight, in the aftermath of Braunwyn’s vow renewal we have a drunken Shannon causing all sorts of drama. Let’s just get on with the shit show, shall we?
We start back at the vow renewal. Shannon is drunk and confronting Kelly about the whole “tincture” versus “water” thing. Kelly doesn’t know what a tincture is. But, Kelly is trying to diffuse things. But, Shannon is drunk and not getting it. Then On we go to the reception/after party. But first, Shannon and her new man, John, and her daughters stop by the hotel room so Shannon can get more drinks. The girls bring up Shannon’s vow renewal and she gets all emotional. Because, drunk. Kelly is so inappropriate with older people. Including her own mother.
Elizabeth and her boyfriend Jimmy are not even hanging around each other at the reception. Gina and Kelly gang up on Elizabeth about not having sex with Jimmy until she is divorced. Who cares? Shannon tells Braunwyn’s kids that a vow renewal happened right before her divorce. The kids walk away laughing about how drunk she was. On a recent WWHL Shannon clearly had not seen the episode yet. She claimed she remembered everything. Then, when Andy pointed it she was the drunkest he’d ever seen her, she asked, “Was it worse than Mexico?” Yeah, Shannon, this is right up there with your drunken shenanigans.
Shannon Is Naked Wasted
Shannon can’t even form words. She is trying to fight with Kelly now about the water/tincture thing. Kelly is over Shannon’s hypocrisy of being wasted on tequila when she at Braunwyn’s reception. Elizabeth’s nonexistent sex life gets brought up again. She had sex with him once and then he found out she was married. Kelly of course has to bring up that she and Rick have sex all the time. Elizabeth seems to be more upset about her divorce than she is letting on. She also has baby fever and her “Mexican boyfriend with the big dick” doesn’t seem interested in having a baby. Braunwyn talks about her mommy issues. Shannon lies to Braunwyn about her drinking. Braunwyn’s mother was exposed to covid and gave Shannon a kiss at the reception. Is that where she got it?
The next morning calls for all the ladies to film by the pool and rehash the previous night. Shannon can’t even manage to put on clothes and is probably still drunk. None of the two breakfasts she ordered AT THE PARKER was up to her standards. She arrives in nothing but her hotel bathrobe. But first, Braunwyn, Gina and Emily go to a 7 am AA meeting. There is a lot of speculation that I cannot confirm at this time, that Braunwyn lied about being an alcoholic for a storyline. That would be right up there with Brooks faking cancer for me if true. Emily has never been to an AA meeting before. She’s not sure why she is going, but Gina invited her.
Finally, We Get To The Pool Scene
Elizabeth calls a girlfriend to cry about her divorce. She feels like a failure. The trial is coming up and she thinks the judge views her as a gold digger. Pretty much all of the women except for maybe Emily have some sort of existential crisis happening during this scene. Elizabeth tells everyone that all of Braunwyn’s kids have lice. When Braunwyn shows up she says it’s just the twins. Kelly says she hugged the twins last night.
Kelly starts her Covid rants talking about how it isn’t a thing. Tell your mama in ICU that, Kelly. I guess you can’t because she isn’t speaking to you. There were thirty deaths and this was like the first week tht everyone was supposed to quarantine. Kelly brings up that people die of the flu all the time anyway. Elizabeth is just as bad. She says the whole thing is blow out of proportion and in 60 days it will be pretty much gone. This Trumpster footage isn’t aging well. I find it difficult to feel any sympathy for Elizabeth and her divorce at this point. My gaydar pings with Elizabeth. I’m just saying. I think she is a least bi. NTTAWWT. But that could explain the no sex with her boyfriend thing.
Everyone else is very confused about Elizabeth’s situation, but I feel like there is some mismatched sexuality going on here. She’s cute. IJS. Then Kelly shoves Elizabeth in the pool. Next week: Will we solve the Elizabeth mystery? Will people in OC finally understand that Covid is a real pandemic and start wearing masks?
