Okay guys, sorry for the delay on tonight’s RHOC Recap, but it was Survivor finale night and it was AMAZING. Best three hours I’ve had in a while. Now, let me dive right into this nonsense. We’re on episode three and I already want Heather to be fired. She’s the new Kelly Dodd. She might even be worse than Kelly Dodd. I wish Shannon would stop apologizing to Heather. Someone needs to TAKE THE BEADORS DOWN!
Too Many Spouses
Oh good grief. We have yet another plastic surgery appointment. Shannon goes to Dr. Jen for some kind of stupidity. I’m perfectly content with my face. I don’t need to look 25 again. Noella is stuck telling her story to Shannon during all the procedures. She has one miscarriage, then had a son via IVF, then they lost twin boys when their surrogate had a miscarriage. He one son is autistic. Also, she found out that her husband owes $6 million in taxes. Noella and Shannon decide to invite Nicole to lunch to smooth over things between Shannon and Nicole.
Jen’s family seem um… odd? Dysfunctional? Just plain weird? Gina and her man seem great together. Gina is not in a good place with Shannon. She feels like Shannon tried to blame everything at the Heather party on her. Heather and Terry chat about their looks. Seriously. That was the first topic of conversation before they moved on (or back several seasons) to trashing Shannon. Shannon reached out to Heather via text. Heather sent back a very long, very snotty text dismissing her.
Shane is my favorite husband. I love that family. Their kids sound great. Emily and Shane’s daughter is going to be baptized in the Mormon Church.
Ladies Who Lunch
Noella and Gina go for cryotherapy and Noella breaks down over her husband’s nearly six million dollar tax debt. How does that happen? (Says the person who didn’t pay quarterly taxes this year. It’s been a rough one. ) Noella brings up her sex dungeon again. Apparently, she slept in it the prior night to get away from her husband.
Clearly, this is Noella’s big episode. She’s in a lot of scenes. Noella, Shannon and Nicole meet for lunch. Noella and Nicole arrive first. They have a conversation about about Noella’s spouse. Nicole says she is going through a divorce so she understands. Noella says divorce is not even on the table. Or so SHE THINKS. Get ready girl. Shannon arrives late. Nicole tenses up immediately. Nicole ultimately forgives Shannon
We get a heartwarming family scene that is supposed to make me like Dr. Jen. It’s not working. Sadly, Dr. Jen’s father who she was very close to was killed in a bicycle accident just before taking her exam to get into medical school. His death sort of shattered the family.
One Spouse Down
Shannon gets a phone call from Noella. She was just served with divorce papers that where all in Spanish. Her nanny had to translate for her. I can’t wait until I move to another country. In most you have to employ a local, and generally that is a housekeeper. They are very inexpensive. That will be wonderful. Her husband is apparently in Puerto Rico. All of his stuff, cars, etc. are at their US home where she is. He has shut off all the credit cards. She is blindsided and devastated. She doesn’t want a divorce.
Shannon and Gina meet for lunch? dinner? It begins with an awkward hug. Gina also got a call from Noella. They start by talking about that a little bit. The call Noella and invite her to join them. Gina and Shannon argue about what Gina did at Heather’s party. It’s not going well. I don’t even know whose side I am on. But, Heather is sure trying to turn everyone against Shannon. Gina and Shannon took a fun trip to NYC four months ago and had a great time. They try both want to quash it. I thought Shannon was super remorseful.
Noella arrives. She doesn’t have a bank account on her own? Who does that in 2021? I have four (longs story) and I’m not married. The other strange thing is that the soon to be ex husband refused to sell the house in Puerto Rico even though they had a buyer. That would have paid the tax bill. Does he really own the house?
Next week: Heather threatens Shannon and Noella has a full on breakdown.
