Wow! Google didn’t show me the show title for this week so I went to Wikipedia. And, it was there that I saw the ratings for this season. They are abysmal! They range from an episode one low of 340,000 views to a “high” of only 600,000! Last season the ratings were between 600,000 and 780,000 and the high number was LeeAnne’s wedding episode. This show is tanking without her. Also, before I get to tonight’s RHOD recap, if you haven’t seen today big Blind Item Reveal, click here now. Now I’m sure you will be thrilled to know that tonight’s episode includes a shaman therapy session and yet another birthday party. So, let’s get right to it!
Hug It Out!
We start at D’Andra’s Shaman party. It’s a weird as we expected it to be. Kary and some of the others can’t stop cracking up. Kameron is certain that the “Shaman” is brainwashing them all. Brandi thinks Jesus is going to be mad at her for chanting. Then they do partner work to resolve conflict. First up is D’Andra and Kary. Kary called D’Andra a selfish friend. That hurt her big fat feelings and made her angry. Kary is pissed that D’Andra talks about her behind her back. They hug it out. Next Brandi and Tiffany talk. Tiffany apologies to Tiffany for her behavior toward here. And they hug it out. This whole scene is ridiculous.
Then they all lay down and get covered in rose petals while the hairdresser/Shaman guy plays a gong. For some reason Brandi and Kary are afraid of the gong. Brandi thinks it it sounds like what hell would sound like. This whole situation was boring and ridiculous. All of it. The next day Tiffany meets with her boss to ask to go to a four day work week. He agrees to the new schedule. Meanwhile, Brandi shares that Brinkley has dyslexia and ADHD. Then she rambles on about Jesus. Kameron talks to her husband about selling the house. Apparently there is a pending contract and Court hasn’t told her about it. She wants to be included in the information regarding the sale.
Tiffany’s Morrocan Themed Birthday
I’m not sure why Kary was chosen as the one to throw Tiffany’s birthday party. It seems an odd choice. But Tiffany has has problems bonding with all the women. Everyone is getting super dressed up for the party. Nothing about the party says Morocco. Ha! Even Brandi knows this is not a very Moroccan setting. D’Andra brings Mama Dee to the party. Apparently, Tiffany loves Mama Dee.Tiffany says she never got a birthday party growing up. She got a hard boiled egg for luck and $20. Tiffany loves the party setting and does think it is Moroccan. I guess that is all that counts.
Dinner looks amazing but sadly the dinner conversation is disgusting. Tiffany gives a whole speech about how this is the first time she has a group of girlfriends. They have a group hug. Mama Dee tells Tiffany about how she planned to marry Glenn Simmons and marry rich. And she did. As Kameron says, Mama Dee was a gold digger who stalked a rich man. Then, we move on to Mama Dee and Brandi saying that the shaman session was demonic. Brandi tells D’Andra that she’s not a Christian if she believes in shamans. D’Andra and production remind us that Brandi goes to psychics and claims she can see ghosts. So, Brandi is a hypocrite.
SNAKES! OMG SNAKES!
Tiffany’s wedding cake does seem more Indian than Morrocan. Then, out comes the fancy birthday cake AND THE SNAKES! Kameron loves the snakes. One in particular. Next, the shots start flowing and everyone is wasted. D’Andra loves the giant snake. Also, D’Andra is really, really drunk. Mama Dee is not amused by all the drunk women. Apparently, Glenn Simmons is not D’Andra’s father. He is her step father. So why did she change her last name to Simmons? Mama Dee says she did it because the Simmons name would get her a lot further in life. D’Andra denies this and starts cussing out her mother and having a drunken tantrum. Mama Dee decides to walk away and maybe hitchhike home. Tiffany runs after her. D’Andra keeps calling her mother a fucking bitch.
So, um….Happy Birthday Tiffany? Mama Dee wants to have her microphone taken off so she can go home. D’Andra starts throwing shit like a lunatic and tells EVERYONE to go fuck themselves. The girls try to get D’Andra to call her ass down but she is too drunk to be anything close to rational. D’Andra is literally swaying like a tree in the wind. Kameron said that the word on the street is that D’Andra did change her name to give herself more clout. Someone thought it was a good idea for Tiffany and D’Andra to sit on the swing. That someone was wrong.
Next time: D’Andra and her mother talk about the name change. Tiffany films with her mother to tell her she is working less hours to be with her family. Why did Tiffany even need to tell her if it will cause an issue. How would she even have known?
