OMG! HERE WE GO! It’s ALL HAPPENING on tonight’s RHOSLC RECAP! I am so excited for this episode. Sadly, there will be a two month flashback. Let’s hope those two months don’t take up too many episodes! We start with all the ladies arriving on a bus for the cast trip. But then, Jen gets a phone call. She just announces that she has to go. It is VERY interesting to me that Meredith, who HATES Jen Shan is going to meet them at their destination. I’m just stating facts. But, hypothetically, maybe Meredith knew not to be there when the Feds showed up for a reason. Also, who picked her up in that pickup truck? Maybe, Stuart? The Feds raid her house. The women on the bus read the news on their phones. All the women don’t answer the question about who tipped off the Feds. I’m quite sure it was Meredith. And I ain’t mad at her.
Then unfortunately we back up for TWO WHOLE MONTHS! Jen and her housewives BFF Lisa Barlow introduce us to her new “chateau” and Jen Shah gives a huge tour of the house documenting her giant closet full of very expensive items. Remember that dinner Jen hosted in season one where she gave every one like… I forget, but a bunch of designer shit? That too will come back to bite her in the ass just like Erika’s Girardi’s constant extravagant spending. If you have real money, you don’t talk about it or make such displays. God LORD these intros are literally the WORST ever.
Lisa the Queen of Disengaging makes a really bad decision to be BFF’s with Jen Shah. In other news, Meredith cut her hair so not we can tell Lisa and Meredith apart. Jen tells Lisa that after 26 years of marriage, Sharrieff threatened to divorce her during Covid. She puts her own spin on it, but I feel like if Meredith didn’t tell the Feds where to find her, he did. Lisa tries to compare her issues with Meredith and her relationship with Jen with Heather pointing out that she was a cunt to her the moment she joined the show? Now I wonder WTF Jen is covering up. At the end of that very odd conversation, Jen says, “Girl, you know I will go to jail for you. I haven’t been to jail yet.” WOW. Nice edit, production!
Let Them Eat Cake … Or Not
Meredith has also rented a second house to film in for the season. And Whitney comes by to see it. Most of not all of these women live in Park City, not Salt Lake City unless they are filming. Meredith says things with her marriage are good now. Whitney says that she has to annouce at a school on her oldest daughter’s Senior Night, what colleges she has been accepted to. I am already getting bored. Plus they didn’t give us many photos for this episode other than the first seven minutes. Whitney has her own product line and it is only season two. She says she is tired of sucking dick for money. She puts on a swimsuit for her husband’s birthday party in the hot tub. And then drops the whole cake. TWICE.
Next it is time for the other criminal on this show (ALLEDGEDLY!) Mother Mary Martha God Jesus Cosby. I feel like she could be cellmates with Jen Shah sooner rather than later. She has a podcast and no one cares. Mary and one of the guys on the podcast have some sort of prayer off. It’s ridiculous. The feds will be coming for that church soon. WHY DO SO MANY SCAMMERS GO ON REALITY TV AND OUT THEMSELVES? Also, my sources say that production thinks Mary is THE WORST. So they would all testify. It looks like Evian is sponsoring this season. Are their ad campaign people on the crack! OMG Project Runway commercials! Coming October 14th!
Meet Jen Shah’s Replacement
Feel like that Jennie Nguyen, the new housewife was hired to be the new Asian housewife for this franchise. But once they know Jen Shah was going to prison, they edited her with an intro that is very similar to Jen Shah. She’s definitely Jen’s replacement when she goes to prison. God, I hope Court TV airs that trial. Which reminds me the Durst closing statements resume tomorrow. I keep forgetting to watch. BTW my fellow Sidebar friends, the boring prosecutor is NOT doing the closing arguments. A MUCH less anal retentive prosecutor is. My initial reaction is that I love her. But she is BFF’s with Lisa who I find kind of annoying.
Jennie is from Vietnam and tells a horrific story about fleeing the country. That was followed up by her coming to America when she was 7. Her parents lied to the government about her age and told them she was five so she could start public school in kindergarten. THAT IS A GENIOUS MOVE for a parent. I have a lot of respect for that. She is actually friends with Lisa so that works well because, you know, her current BFF is going to prison.
I love Jennie’s commentary about Catholicism. I am Southern Baptist in the US and Catholic in Europe. Shut up! THAT IS TOO A THING! And I need a lot of help with my Catholic side in Europe. Mostly while quite drunk for Christmas mass. The old Catholic French ladies are always to kind to assist me. Her husband is a chiropractor.
Apparently some of Jen Shah’s ALLEDGEDLY stolen money went to buy her aunt “bionic legs” after they were amputated. So at least some good came from her ALLGEDED crimes. We get a lovely family scene with the family. None of them know they are in a house eating food ALLGEDEDLY gotten from ill-gotten funds.
Then Mary Martha Cosby meets with Whitney, Heather and Meredith meet at an outdoor bubble at a restaurant for lunch. Meredith shares that her father passed away. That is such a hard thing to deal with. 🙁 Last season both Heather and Mary Martha “I AM GOD” Crosby lost their fathers. Whitney says she has not spoken to Lisa or Jen (since last season). Heather says she understands that Lisa never really likes her. But that Jen is posting a lot of stuff on social media calling her a racist. This seems like it must have been filmed out of order. Heather says that Jen Shah acts like her friend to her face and then trashes her publicly.
The Ladies Question Lisa’s Relationship With Jen Shah
Mary reminds her that Jen Shah called her racists as well. Meredith says that Jen Shah calls her son Brooks homophobic slurs even though he has never identified his sexual preference. By the way, I’d appreciate it if some of you guys would stop posting homophobic slurs about Brooks here. They all talk about how Jen Shah only ally on the show is Lisa. This confirms my feeling that this was filmed after the fact.
We end this episode with Meredith and Lisa trying to talk it out on their own. I just need for them to fast forward as quickly as possible through these two months and get to the party where Jen Shah is arrested. Park City looks so beautiful. Meredith’s family celebrates Shabbat with Lisa and her family. Lisa is some kind of hybrid of Jewish and Mormon. How does that work. Lisa gives condolences to Meredith over the loss of her father. It appears Lisa and Meredith want to make up. But right off the bat Lisa wants Meredith to make up. That is not going to happen. Lisa continues to advocate for Jen Shah. But Meredith is not having people saying homophobic things about her family.
WWHL is with Mia and Heather tonight. I’ll recap anything of note in comments but I need to move on to Big Brother first. Lisa stupidly thinks Meredith being nice to Heather is the same of her being friends with a cunt who is a homophobic POS. Lisa is totally on the wrong side of this argument. And so we leave it with white Shabbat. And some previews that we have already seen.
Off to recap Big Brother. It’s been a long, long day.
