I can’t believe this is only the second RHOD recap of the season. It feel like longer already. How is that even possible? Especially since all the days run together. I’m oddly extra depressed and anxious today for absolutely no reason. So this recap will probably be a downer. I’ll try to keep it as upbeat as possible. At least I’ll get to watch the ladies eat chicken feet. I may find some sort of odd pleasure in that. 🙂 I’ve always wanted to go out for dim sum.
Okay, here we go, in the thirty minutes that have passed since writing the paragraph above, I’ve had a sharp weird head pain for about two minutes. Was very nauseous for about five minutes. And now I feel fine. Clearly, I am dying. 🙁 But first I am going to get this done.
The Spirit of Dead Dogs, And A Shaman
I feel like I have seen this scene with Tiffany and Brandi crying about racism fifteen times already. Why does Tiffany talk like a 13 year old valley girl? Can we finally move on from here? Kameron and her husband try to put a for sale sign in their yard. Kameron doesn’t really want to put one up because the neighbors will all speculate about why they are selling. Her husband has had some offers on the house but he doesn’t really want to tell her about it. She got super depressed the last time an offer fell through. Kameron is also concerned about her dead dog’s spirit moving with her.
What in the holy hell is going on with this Shaman? Is he sucking out snot? Blowing smoke up her nose? What is this? Did we know that her father committed suicide? Did we need to know this? It seems her step-mother and her brother became estranged over the estate. She now wants to try to reconcile with them. For some reason she needs a tube shoved up her knows before she can do this.
Going Into The Closet
Next, we find D’Andra dealing with family drama like normal people. She goes over to Tiffany’s house to see her wine cellar that is filled with their own private label wines. Tiffany’s husband Daniel decided to buy a vineyard and make his own wine. Because, why not? Stephanie comes over as well so that she can get a tour of Tiffany’s awesome house. Of course her closet is filled with all designer everything. It is the size of a boutique. Stephanie finds all the bragging by Tiffany obnoxious. I find her vocal fry obnoxious.
The ladies sit down for wine and gossip. The topic is Brandi’s racist video. And how they all want to move on. Yet moving on just never seems to happen on these shows. Tiffany is not a fan of Kary. She says she feels like she is in middle school and Kary is the bully. The other girls tell her that Kary is like that with everyone when she drinks. Tiffany invites all the girls over for dim sum. They all must try the chicken feet.
Quarantine & Dim Sum
Kary’s daughter, Olivia is home from college because of COVID and anxiety. That means all four of Kary’s kids are living under one roof with her for a while. She couldn’t be happier. Olivia is having trouble after getting used to life in LA returning to Dallas where the culture is a lot different. Across town, D’Andra and her husband Jeremy have the whole house to themselves. Jeremy is busy exchanging chores for sexual favors. They also talk about D’Andra reconciling with her step-mother and brother. I’m so bored that even a scene with Jeremy isn’t helping. Doesn’t Kameron have a kid? What happened to her? Did she trade her for a dog?
It’s time for dim sum. Do people really eat dim sum as a brunch that starts at 10 am? Or are they just doing it before the restaurant opens? Brandi has a family trip to Florida planned, as one does in a pandemic. So, that opens a spot for Kameron’s friend Jen to be the redheaded friend. D’Andra says she thought she had the Corona virus because she was sick for two days. Turns out she didn’t. But then recently, she was hospitalized with Corona. Wow, D’Andrea also got SARS when it was in Asia. In the car on the way over, Kary tells Kameron that D’Andrea called her telling her she was on the way to the hospital to get a Covid test. Kary says that D’Andrea is a hypochondriac.
Dim Sum Mean Girls
Kary arrives and refuses to hug D’Andrea because of her fake brush with Covid. Kameron ends up sitting next to D’Andrea and calls her Covid girl. What is the matter with these two? Pretty much everyone I know thinks they have Covid at least for an hour a week. Kary really is a mean girl. Kameron is notoriously unwilling to try new foods. Especially on their overseas trips. I feel like she only eats mac and cheese in those kid shapes and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. D’Andra fills Kameron in on her anxiety about reaching out to her brother. Kary, who I feel I should remind you again is an awful person, shouts across the table to D’Andrea, “Are you telling her how sick you are?”
Oh Lord, Tiffany has given everyone an envelope with a question in it. This is never a good idea. Tiffany starts first and says she has been struggling with balancing work with parenting twins. Stephanie says she is starting her own charity foundation. After both of these woman share, Kary gives a fake nice reaction. Kary says her favorite thing about herself is that she is a great friend and she’s very loyal. WOW. She’s delusional. D’Andrea’s question was about something she wants to change about herself. Her answer was sort of nonsensical.
Finally, everyone is expected to eat a chicken foot. I might try a nibble. Apparently, you have to spit the toe bones out. Yuck. I cannot. Only, D’Andrea actually eats it. Tiffany goes off on Kameron for not eating a chicken foot. And after a shot of God knows what, things come to a merciful end.
