The title of this RHOD recap is also the title of tonight’s episode. The letter S on the end of the title makes me feel like I am just repeating a typo. But maybe we will discover more than one “mommy dearest” tonight. I’m ready to find out.
Kary and D’Andra drop by Tiffany’s house for a chat. Tiffany’s husband owns a hotel? Did we know this? Tiffany is going to throw a luau party there for the girls. She is hoping to make up for her subpar pizza party. D’Andra is still pissed that Brandi questioned her Christianity. Isn’t Brandi’s tagline “Take if from me a sinner is just a saint that keeps on trying.” D’Andra is also still feuding with her mother. That’s par for the course for those two. It does indeed seem like there are a lot of “mommy dearests” this episode. Tiffany and Kary both have similar issues with their mothers.
Stephanie invites Brandi to go to her first charitable event at a high school. I’m not sure where they are going but they going in a private jet. It seems the high school is in Beaumont. The school has been hit hard by two hurricanes and desperately needed new locker rooms. Everyone is in masks except for Brandi and Stephanie who are just wearing those basically worthless face shields. The new locker rooms are SUPER nice. Back in Dallas, Tiffany tells her mother that she has cut work schedule by one day. She is shocked that her mother is happy that she is reducing her work load.
D’Andra goes to see Mama Dee to try and make amends after their big fight last week. Jeremey gives her a pep talk on the phone as she is driving to her mom’s house. D’Andra apologizes for being ugly to her at the party. Mama Dee doubles down in an interview about D’Andra changing her name to match her stepfather’s for clout. D’Andra says that changing her name caused a division with her biological family. I am confused how D’Andra has a brother but Mama Dee only has one child, D’Andra. I’m going to need one of those family tree charts. I guess the brother is a half brother from a different marriage? Mama Dee and D’Andra cry and make up.
Kary talks to her daughters about her relationship with her mother. I am over all the mommy dearest conversations. This doesn’t really need to be on the show. Can we just move on to the brawling at the luau? Please and thank you.
Judge Not Lest Ye Be Judged
Tiffany has the entire floor of the very expensive looking hotel shut down for the luau. There are gorgeous tropical flower arrangements everywhere and fresh leis. On the ride to the luau, Brandi is already going on and on about D’Andra and the shaman. This is going to be a ridiculous argument. Brandi needs to read Matthew chapter seven over and over until she gets it. Wow, Tiffany had the leis flown in from Hawaii! The venue is beautiful. Everyone is totally impressed!
Brandi arrives and gives D’Andra a weird side hug. It was super awkward. Kam tells D’Andra she had a rough week because her electricity was out for three days. D’Andra asks if there was a big bill to get it fixed. Kam doesn’t know. She has never in her life seen a bill! I am finally jealous of a housewife. I’d love to never see a bill. I wish I could just hire someone to handle my bills. Jen who is known for being completely mute at these events shared with Tiffany that she is about to get a labiaplasty. I had to grab my own crotch during that conversation. I. Would. NEVER. EW.
D’Andra Calls Out Brandi’s Hypocrisy
The ladies get a hulu class. Then there were fire dancers. This party cost production or someone a whole lot of money. Then is is time for dinner. The chef himself comes out to serve the food and greet the guests. Right away we jump to the part where D’Andra brings up that Brandi said that she wasn’t Christian because she goes to the hairdresser/shaman dude. Brandi denies saying that. D’Andra points out all the weird things Brandi has done in the past… ghost-hunting, saying she has talked to ghosts since she was a child, psychics, etc.
Brandi says the ghosts all just talk to her and it scares her and she can’t stop it from happening. Sounds like she is possessed to me. Did Brandi just confuse astral project with Astroglide? I can’t with this whole oddball conversation! Stephanie chimes in to say the Astroglide is great for “the asshole.” Do any of these women understand what proper dinner conversation is? Kary tries and fails to list “the nine commandments.” All of these women need to crack open a Bible if they want to profess to be Christians.
