Wednesday nights are super busy and I am trying to preplan for this Family Karma recap. However, I’m also trying to referee and moderate the RHONY comments from last night’s episode. It’s a horrific season of RHONY. And, the comments are all over the place. I was up super early today to hydrate before my second vaccine shot. So, this one may be late, or perhaps just short. I’m writing this seconds before I start my RHOBH recap, so it depends on how much that exhausts me. Back soon. I’m back and wait for it…feeling fantastic and having a great day. I KNOW! When was the last time I said that! 🙂 #FullyVaccinated #ZeroSideEffects
Monica 2.0 has come to visit Brian. Monica is a physician. They have been together for a whopping seven months and it’s a long distance relationship. Did he just say that when he visited her in Tampa he stays in a hotel room? That’s interesting. Brian’s dad takes Monica 2.0 to the back yard to chop coconuts. He says that he grew up in Guana and in that culture when a boy turns eight years old, if they can chop a coconut and make money selling coconut, he was considered a man and could drink or get married or anything else a man does. So, he was living on a farm when he was eight. He took a whack at trying to cut up a coconut and instead whacked off part of his thumb. Then, one of the ducks ate his thumb! So now one is shorter than the other.
Vishal and his mother go on a real estate lead to sell a commercial property. After the meeting Vishal talks to his mother about going to therapy about his relationship. The relationship is nonexistent at this point because his fianceé, Richa, has returned the engagement ring and called things off. So he finally tells her about all of that. He also mentions that the problems between their mothers also contributed to the breakup. Richa’s mom, Lopa has moved to Miami. Funny how that happens when there is a TV show involved. She still hates Vishal and he is unwelcome in her homes.
Anisha is freezing her eggs and is taking shots as part of the preparation. So, she asks her mother to give her an injection. Anisha having a baby is all her family wants.
Vishal Versus Dillon Part 2
Dillon and Shaan are obnoxious and completely unnecessary for this show. Shann’s girlfriend wants to set Dillion up. She says he is just like him. That should be an immediate no. Dillion told his parents he was gay by writing a newspaper column called, “Dear Mom.” Who does that? She was shocked but is very supportive now.
Amrit, Brian and Vishal go out to eat together. They talk about Brian’s birthday party where Dillon and Vishal got into it at the very end. Brian says over all it was a great party. They show a clip of Dillon telling mommy and daddy about Vishal threatening him. Amrit asks Vishal if he thinks he would have gotten as angry with Dillon if he was not on the rocks with Richa. He says he talked to Richa after the fight with Dillon and they fought some more. With Lopa back in town full-time, Vishal says the relationship is worse than ever.
Baby You’re Just Like My Mother; She’s Never Satisfied
Bali is glad that her daughter Anushka had to come back home from college due to the pandemic. Now that she is home, her mother is still hovering. Also, she is working from home so she is always around to hover. Bali is both an overprotective mom and one of those “my daughter is my best friend” types of mom. Anisha and her overly involved mother call Bali on the way home from her egg retrieval. They were able to retrieve eleven eggs. Here is the thing, if she only wants one or two kids there will come a point where she will have to makes some decisions about what to do with the rest. The connection was bad, but it appears she was told to keep the Vishal versus Dillon story going by production.
Dillon and Shaan’s mom has a beach apartment that she likes to go to on the weekends to escape her obnoxious sons. I do not blame her. Lopa goes to visit her at her beach apartment or maybe it is her new apartment. Shaan’s mom is pushing him to hurry up and marry his girlfriend. Shaan’s girlfriend Pooja is twenty-eight and the family is afraid her eggs will dry up. Good grief. Lopa refuses to talk about Vishal’s mother. Other to say she never invites her over and never calls her. Shaan’s mom seem to be trying to bring them together.
Anisha and Richa go to lunch. This recap is way too long already, I’m going to try to say less. Richa has not told Vishal she is in Miami. Richa tries to set Anisha up with the waiter. He doesn’t seem interested. Richa on the other hand doesn’t seem completely done with Vishal. She needs him to try harder.
An Unhappy Happy Hour
Reshma, Vishal’s mom is headed over to happy hour with all the moms at Dillon’s mom’s house. She has no idea that Lopa, Richa’s mom is coming. This will not end well. Especially because Dillon is there for some reason. Lopa has arrived. Meanwhile, outside my house it is absolutely pouring! It’s like the bottom just dropped out of the sky! Anyway, the moms start discussing the situation between Dillon and Vishal.
Here we go… Vishal’s mother was unaware that her son had threatened violence. Vishal is the most hands off mother in the room. She says that she has heard lots of shitty thing that Dillon has done to her son and she has stayed out of it. She defends her son basically saying that when you go around accusing a man with a girlfriend of sucking penises, he’s likely to retaliate. Of course Dillon is right up there in it. He clearly has no life. The mothers all agree to drop the subject. It’s happy hour. Vishal’s mother quietly leaves without saying goodbye. Lopa is is thrilled she is leaving. This topic appears to be an issue all season. Le sigh. This season premieres during Pride Month and it all about trying to out someone who says they are straight? WHY?
