Y’all! I am so excited for the premiere of Survivor tonight! It’s been a struggle to get everything to record so that I can do three recaps tonight. This RHOBH recap obviously has priority, but I am super excited to get to Survivor and Big Brother. It’s going to be a long night. And tonight Garcelle cries when talking to Rinna about not feeling accepted in the group. She also cried today on The Talk due to the horrific treatment of Haitian refugees on the border. I hate seeing Garcelle cry and it was so heartbreaking I couldn’t watch the show. Erika Girardi is in Las Vegas doing a promotional event for a sushi bar. Let me band out the recap really quick and get on to the next!
GIRL’S TRIP TO THE BEACH!
Oh and Erika’s tall tale from the last episode has been disproven by the police. Anyway we are going to go on yet another Covid trip to Del Mar. I do not understand all of these people stressing over high fashion for a girls’ road trip. This is supposed to be “Kathy Hilton’s” trip. Is this a one night trip? Shannon as a badly sprained ankle. I swear I had at least twenty of them in my life. Many requiring emergent care. Once I stopped wearing heels, it never happened again. Hers seems to be getting worse and worse. She needs an X-ray. Erika is bringing her dog as an excuse for not riding with the other women. Kathy has left her bag with her phone and stuff at home. Kathy and Kyle get “presidential suite” while the other ladies get regular old luxury. lol.
So, while Sutton gets her X-ray, everyone else heads to the beach for a picnic. Where is Garcelle? Apparently, she had to work one of her many jobs. The ladies discover a ton of sea lions on the beach. Kyle says “The sea lions are posing like Dorit does for Instagram.” LOL. Kathy Hilton is mortified because the sea lions were “getting frisky.” LOL. Sutton calls and the ER doctor has put her on crutches so she is going back to the hotel to rest her ankle. Erika starts talking about how Sutton called her a liar. And she is not lying! LOL. Every word out of that nasty pie hole is a lie. When the ladies point out that Sutton said she lied about the car accident, now all of the sudden, Erika is using the word “allegedly” in reference to the whole “unconscious” for twelve hours lie.
Erika Does More Lying Than The Sea Lions
Oh here we go with all the lies again. Erika is the worst liar ever. The story about Tom’s car accident changes every time she tells it. The truth is something happened and Tom injured his ankle end of story. Read here for all the lists of her lies and what really happened. It’s a long read. You may want to call Sutton and have her explain it to you. 🙂 On the day this was filmed Tom had a competency hearing. Which explains why Erika has suddenly developed the head injury stories. She’s totally still working with Tom to try to get them out of this situation.
Kyle points out in her talking heads that the group including Garcelle filmed with Tom and he was competent and charismatic and engaging. Once again I totally forgot Crystal was on this show until I posted the photo above. I don’t think she has said 200 words total on camera this entire season. Erika says she doesn’t care if Sutton thinks she is lying or if Sutton feels threatened. Oh she cares. She cares so much because Sutton knows what is going on and is not afraid to call her lies out to her. Erika cannot handle that.
It’s Time For A Dinner Brawl!
Garcelle arrives at the hotel and has a lovely suite. But she is nervous because the hotel is basically empty due to the pandemic. Sutton says she has to be off her foot for an entire week. She shows up in a wheelchair. They talk about the situation with Erika and Sutton. Sutton doesn’t want to deal with her anymore. Erika still has a glam team. Kathy Hilton doesn’t know how to open a bottle of wine. Garcelle takes Sutton to dinner in a wheelchair. Kyle and Kathy are both late to dinner. Everyone for some reason says how they are feeling. Erika is fearful. Kathy is anxious that yet another lovely dinner will be ruined by Erika. Oh there is not doubt this dinner will be a disaster, Kathy. Welcome to the housewives.
Sutton (sort of ) tries to clear the air with Erika but Erika doesn’t want to talk to her at all. Sutton calls Erika “Miss Small Town” and Erika calls Sutton, “small-minded.” Erika says she is not giving the conversation any more energy because it is dumb. I truly believe that Erika has no idea who Sutton is or that she and her husband built an insanely lucrative business from the bottom up together. Her husband is one of the leading experts on global economics and could buy and sell Tom Girardi ten times over if he actually even had all the money he claimed. Kathy Hilton tries to get some sort of grace from Erika but she is not interested. Garcelle sticks up for Sutton. But, Dorit is still poking at Sutton and Garcelle.
Rinna Makes Garcelle Cry
Then Rinna starts coming for Garcelle. She is pissed at Garcelle for expressing that she doesn’t feel included in the group. Rinna points out that she hosted a birthday party for here and everyone brought gifts. Harry dropped off some of his special sauce to her house. All nice gestures. But, Rinna is completely missing the point that there are division in this group. And it is solidified by Kyle not asking Sutton and Garcelle to her reunion filming after parties. And the stupid teen aged hand holding photos on Instagram for the Five Fucking Fucktards are whatever they call themselves. Garcelle has a point and Rinna keeps dismissing it!
Garcelle says that her whole life she has been trying to fit in. She is crying. Kathy and Rinna both get up to hug Garcelle. Progress that she is finally being heard? She explained her feelings very clearly and didn’t make it all about race but about how being the only black person in the room makes her feel like she has to work twice as hard to be accepted. Please let this be a breakthough for the other women and let the stop being such dicks. Even Dorit hugs her. Kathy invites everyone to her sweet for “coffee or tea” and she is disappointed when everyone just want to go to bed. Or to their rooms to order booze.
Let’s Get A Sound Bath!
Then next morning Garcelle drops in to pick up Sutton in her wheelchair and wheel her to the “sound bath.” Everyone is there except for Erika. I’m not really the hippy dippy kind of person but I find this whole ceremony very relaxing. It would probably be good for my anxiety. Rinna of course can’t get into it and thinks it is ridiculous. Kathy Hilton falls sound asleep. Then it is off for another relaxing experience, wine tasting. The ladies find out that Tom has been placed in a conservatorship and needs to live in a medically staffed facility.
Kyle and Rinna both go to Erika’s room to check on her. I feel another big lie coming on. Erika is upset because Tom is going into an adult care facility that can treat the dementia that he may or may not have. Her grandmother died in a similar type of facility. My dad died in one as well. He didn’t have dementia but he needed some assisted living. My siblings at one point moved him to a different one and I had no idea why. It wasn’t until after he died I found out he was abused at the first place. They knew that I would have gone to jail for assault at the very least had they told me.
Then Erika goes on and on about the burglary. Now it is more than one burglar. Again, you can read the official police investigation here. He never came into contact with the burglar. She is now suddenly the martyr in this situation. Please.
Next week, the girls trip continues. Off to watch Survivor! YAY!
