The Bravo Site really didn’t give us anything for tonight’s RHOSLC recap so I am not exactly sure what to expect tonight. The men are apparently going to have a guy’s night so that should be interesting. Especially, if Sharrieff is there.
Well, speaking of Sharrieff, Jen goes outside to check on her husband who has been shoveling their parking lot of a driveway for several hours. He’s not even wearing a coat. But, when she brings him one, he’s pretty much done. And doesn’t seem happy to see her.
The Requisite Real Housewives Car Crash Story
Lisa talks to her husband about the betrayal she feels from Whitney for talking to Angie about things she has told her in confidence. Since when does Lisa treat Whitney like anything but dirt under her shoe? Let alone tell her any deep dark secrets. Wait, Lisa thinks Whitney is the toxic energy? Wow. Then, Mary shows up at Whitney’s house with cookies for her family. All the kids are in the kitchen and she tells a story about one of her cult member’s daughters having a nasty car accident and being ejected through the sunroof. She fell thirty feet off a cliff into a neighborhood. Whitney’s young daughter asks if she is alive. Mary says no and for some reason Mary thinks it is a really funny story. Not an ounce of sympathy there.
Whitney pulls Mary downstairs to talk away from her impressionable children. It’s kind of late for that. Mary is there to gossip about the situation between Whitney and Lisa. Mary has nothing to do with this situation. I don’t think Whitney is super close with anyone. But I feel like Heather should have been there in Mary’s place. Mary didn’t offer any support at all. She basically just called her young and immature. Speaking of Heather, she is logging online to see if he daughter got into UCSB and she did. That was her first choice. Heather is thrilled.
Jen Shah Apologizes To Brooks
First of all, any derogatory comments about Brooks or speculation about Brooks sexuality are NOT TOLERATED on this website. Jen is meeting Brooks for lunch so they can talk privately. She doesn’t really seem remorseful to me. She whines about having to always be on an “apology tour’ but doesn’t seem to realize that is her fault. Oh good, Meredith came with Brooks. He needs a witness with this one. But, Brooks asks his mother to step away so they can talk privately. Jen Shah sucks at apologies. She blames it all on “her team.” It’s clear that Brooks doesn’t believe Jen. Brooks explains how difficult it was to see the terms used about him on social media. Frankly, it’s everywhere even creeps in here a lot and it is maddening.
No young person who is trying to find themselves needs grown ass adults speculating about their sexuality or making nasty comments. Social media can cause serious pain to the children and young adults they mock. Brooks feels like he has never really had the opportunity to full explore and understand his sexuality and here comes this bitch announcing it to the world and taking away his voice before he even knew what he wanted to say. Jen apologizes for flashing her vagina. Jen fake cries and they hug it out. Then she apologizes to Meredith. Both Brooks and Meredith accept her apology.
Meredith’s husband Seth, Whitney’s husband Justin, and Lisa’s husband John, go out for a boys night. I need Sharrieff to be at this function! Oh there he is! They all agree not to talk about the wives. Then, they immediately talk about their wives. Then, sex. Nothing interesting was discussed.
Work Life Balance
Whitney and Jennie go to meet in another empty restaurant for lunch. I’m glad that Whitney has a new friend on the show. Whitney has recently bought out her business partner so she has a lot going on. She is busy with her business and Justin is trying to do more in the home. Jennie sold four of her five medical clinics in order to be home more. Jennie’s husband wants more kids and she has let him know that ship has sailed. Whitney wants more kids but Justin got a vasectomy after their second child. So they are on opposite ends of that spectrum too. I like these two as friends. Sadly, Jennie is friends with Lisa.
Whitney and Meredith go skiing and grab some Irish coffees. Whitney talks about sending her daughter off to college. She wonders if she needs to give Ashley the talk about sex. Her parents never had a talk with her. Meredith points out that Ashley has had a boyfriend for two years. Whitney was brought up Mormon and was a virgin before she got married. Whitney really wants her daughter to have sex before marriage. Meredith says she gave her kids condoms. Whitney is not sure she can do that.
I guess this is where the Gin and Bear It title comes in. I honestly do not want Lisa and Whitney to make up. Instead, I want Lisa and Jen Shah both off the show. This is the first time that Lisa and Whitney have ever been out together alone. Lisa says her husband was kind of joking with Justin about Whitney and Lisa being friends. Apparently, Lisa thought they were. Whitney says her perception is that they are not friends. Lisa orders for the table even though Whitney is allergic to pecans. Then she proceeds to explain away her abhorrent behavior by saying “I didn’t mean it like that.”
I have no idea why anyone other than Jen Shah would want to be friends with Lisa Barlow. Her own husband tries to be out of town as much as possible. We have tons of footage of Lisa being horrible to Whitney. And Lisa continues to say she didn’t mean it that way. Lisa is horrible. Next, week, Lisa punks Whitney again.
