Onward and upward to the RHODubai recap. Well, maybe not upward because literally half of the photos I pulled for this episode is of Caroline crying at the final dinner. We pick up with Caroline trying to storm out of the dinner after Chanel Ayan pointed out that she is more successful than Stanbury. Where is the lie? Apparently, Stanbury can’t handle the truth. But a couple of the girls try to convince her to stay. I think it s Brooks that Stanbury is pissed at for not standing up for her with Ayan.
Ayan Tries To Apologize To Stanbury
Stanbury tries to run away but her friends tell her just to listen. Ayan apologizes and then Stanbury storms to the golf cart. Oh that is Nina who is leaving with Stanbury. Stanbury just wants to sleep it off. Back in her room, Stanbury calls her husband Sergio. She gives him a very odd interpretation of what went down. The other women talk to Nina back in the house. The other ladies realize that Nina is clout chasing. Nina has said many negative things about Stanbury. Nina says that Stanbury is her friend now and she didn’t want to see anyone leaving in tears. The bottom line is that everyone is questioning Nina’s character now.
The next morning, people are calling home. Caroline has to move out of her rental because the house has been sold. She is building her own house but now has to move to a second rental. I still don’t know who everyone is on this show. But the black girls are all team Ayan. It’s kind of weird that they all use each other’s last names. When I was teaching school, especially in the elementary schools we all called each other by our last names. But, it is really weird on this show. It makes it even harder to remember the names. Stanbury I knew from Ladies of London. Chanel Ayan is Chanel Ayan so I can remember her. But the rest? I’m still not so sure of.
It’s Another Sound Bath By Bravo
Why when we are halfway across the world do we have to have the same stupid scenes we get on all the other iterations of the housewives franchises? Why? One of the girls is highly allergic to bees and there is one nearby. They have to drink some very bitter cacao. That’s basically the main ingredient in chocolate without the sugar. All of the sudden, Stanbury’s new husband shows up on a jetski. It’s kind of sweet when you think about it. She was very upset when she called him last night.
The other girls are sort of divided about the arrival of Sergio. It’s mostly split by race. The black girls feel like they are told to buck up and deal with things. But, the what woman needs rescuing from her husband. I get that. And Ayan is crying again. 🙁 Sara is FIERCE on a jetski. It’s finally time for everyone to head back home. Ayan and Stanbury get into again. Stanbury doesn’t listen to what Ayan is saying. Ayan apologizes to Stanbury AGAIN. But, it seems like there is some small degree of resolution.
Stanbury And Sergio Discuss Babies Again
Caroline is apparently doing IVF. That could explain her mood swing on the island. Now she is trying to simulate pregnancy for Sergio. He doesn’t have a clue what women go through to have a baby. But, he really doesn’t care because his parents “Have to have grandchildren.” Well, technically they do because Stanbury came into the marriage with children. So they are saran wrapping Sergio up in a large half of a watermelon. WHY CAN’T THEY GIVE NAMES WHEN THEY ARE IN AN INTERVIEW!? WHY?
Ah Lesa is the one with the braids, at least for now. I don’t remember much about her. I really haven’t been able to remember a damn thing lately. I think I may be getting dementia. I am not kidding. I wake up every morning and have to remind myself where I am. I ask myself what month and year it is. Sometimes the month things takes a minute. Sometimes Banjo visits in a dream and sometimes I dream that my parents live here. That takes a minute to shake off. Caroline, who is 46, claims she has her period. I guess it is possible but not likely.
Ayan Goes To Therapy
I love all the short clips with the cute kids. Do they all have all boys? Is there something in the water? It’s 108F in Dubai and Ayan is in a down coat? Sara is taking Ayan to see her hypnotherapist. I don’t really believe in that but I would not be opposed to giving it a try. I have a lot of childhood shit to work out. And if you guys were around when I was going through THE CHANGE, I overshared a LOT of that. And was in a very dark place. This is hard to watch.
OMG she was circumcised at age five! I can’t listen to too much more of this. Sara is crying. I am crying. This is just so bad. At age 14 her father tried to sell her as a bride. I am literally trying not to vomit. Her sister protected her and so the marriage did not happen. Sara tells Ayan she should do the hypnotherapy privately. And we are not invited to stay either. That’s good. Ayan says she feel better after the hypnotherapy. She is a bit dizzy and sick But, she plans to come back. Sara is such a good friend.
OMG! Next week is the finale? I can’t believe we only get 13 episodes! This is my favorite show on Bravo 🙁 At least we get another quickie trip to the desert. And more ridiculousness about Caroline doing IVF.
This was a very heavy episode.
