BeWell, in case you missed it, and I don’t see how you would, here is the reason that Kathryn (and therefore Caleb) have gone missing from the show. And also, here was my heated response to some of the vile comments that were made. That caused even more drama. But for now, it’s time for a regular Southern Charm Recap. Somehow it is the guys that are causing all the drama this week. These girls seem way too pretty and normal for this bunch of ignoramuses.
Craig is wasted. It seems he can’t stand to be around Naomie. It’s time for them to leave Mullet Bay and go home. Finally, but not before Craig attacks Austen for like no reason. He puts him in a headlock and everything. Why? He has to be on more than just alcohol.
But The Party Isn’t Over Yet
Everyone goes to the girls place except for Craig who goes home. Does he go to bed? No. He demands everyone come to his place even though the girls are already changing into pajamas. Meanwhile, Whitney tries to talk to Shep about what a dick he is. This has happened a shit ton of times already from basically everyone and he never gets it. So, remind me why they even bother? Austen, Olivia (?) and Taylor (?) decide to have a drinking game every time She says Happy or Crazy. They are about to be wasted. Then they add the word done and he says it immediately.
There is no way to keep up with how much Shep repeats the words over and over. Whitney and Naomie tell Shep it is time to go downstairs and be with the others. Shep hears about the drinking game and seems kind of upset. He tells Taylor that he is sick of everyone attacking him. Then he declares his undying drunken love for her. Taylor tells him to pray. Austen was sitting very close to him and he can’t take it anymore.
Austen and Shep Get Into It
So, Austen leaves the kitchen. Shep goes after him. He is just as wasted as Craig. He starts screaming at Austen. Austen points out, rightly, that Shep just wants to control every situation. Shep keeps whispering in Taylor’s ear trying to manipulate and control her. Shep denies it. Austen points out that he just heard him doing it! Shep says “I am not some fucking bad guy.” Um, yes you are Shep. You literally want her to quit HER JOB so you can manipulate her 24/7! You are the bad guy. And that is why you will ultimately lose her. She’s not stupid. Everyone goes to bed.
We get a cute of Leva making cookies with her son. By the way, she is getting her own spinoff that seems like it will be like a Vanderpump Rules show with one or all of her restaurants. Back on SSI, It’s the morning after and there villas are a disaster and most of them are really hungover. But, where did Whitney sleep? Shep and Taylor wake up in the girls villa. Shep is immediately claiming victimhood in the night before. Everyone is so mean to him. Please, manchild. Everyone is trying to get you to be a full grown adult! Taylor gently suggests he change his behavior.
Golf Or Trawling?
Whitney, Shep and Naomie are going golfing. Everyone is is going trawling for shrimp. Naomie and Shep both trash talk Craig on the way to the golf course. Why are Whitney and Naomie so willing to placate Shep? Craig has already started drinking on the boat. The girls talk to Craig about why he was so angry the night before. Craig said that Naomie said one thing that bothered him and he went off. Finally, they bring in the next to see if they have anything. They get some shrimp and some squid.
At the golf course, I believe they are at Wild Dunes now. Nope! I lived a short walk from King and Prince and I never knew they had a golf course. It has to be more inland somewhere. They are right on the beach and I used to go there for brunch on Sunday. Yep, they did have to drive to get there. Not sure where THERE is but, whatever. I just like seeing SSI. Oh they are on the marsh where the gators are. Yikes and no thank you. Naomie doesn’t know how to play golf. She just doesn’t want to be around Craig. Apparently, Taylor doesn’t want to be around Shep because she went shrimping. I feel like Naomie is lying about not knowing how to play golf. She is playing well. This group goes home to get ready for dinner. Hopefully, shrimp. A good ole southern low country boil is never a bad idea.
An “all star” chef is making dinner? How hard is it to do a low country boil? Add the fish, some corn on the cob, some sausage, some red potatoes halved maybe some cut up lemons and/or serve them on the side and a bunch of seasoning like Slap Ya Mama. It literally takes ten or fifteen minute to cook after the water boils. It’s not rocket science. Other than cooking it too long, there is no way to fuck it up. I LOVE ME SOME CRAB CAKES. But, they did not catch crab. I would not complain if I was served crab cakes and she crab soup and never even saw a shrimp. I guess if you lived there long enough that would get old.
I once took a road trip with a guy and made him stop literally everywhere, even when we were on the interstate to stop for a cup of she crap soup everyone we went. Because, I am OBSESSED with she crab soup. Also, I am having a struggle eating these days due to some health issues (Breaking news. I got my CT Scan results today and we are closer to a solution and they were WAY better than expected. So, I AM NOT GOING TO DIE! Um you know any time soon hopefully, LOL). There is a fancyish restaurant near me that serves she crab soup. I should try to go and celebrate. But, I am still not able to shower so… um maybe not. I do take ho baths though. Washing my hair is a whole nuther situation. 🙁 Sorry, off topic.)
At Dinner, Venita finally gets to speak at the main course. She is sitting next to Whitney who say his steak is over cooked. He asks for a piece of her pink meat. WTF? Then Craig invites everyone to a winter wonderland party. Sounds like the finale to me. Then suddenly Craig is sitting next to Venita. Where did Whitney go. Oh, he was on the other side. Craig is uncharacteristically sober and endearing at dinner. Even Naomie mentions it. Craig is even going to invite Madison to the party. WHY??? UGH. Then Suddenly, Naomie demands an apology from Craig. Girl just let it go. Stop stirring the shit.
Naomie is ruining the entire dinner. Craig is on his best behavior. He’s kinda sober. STOP ATTACKING HIM AND WINDING HIM UP! Venita tries to encourage Naomie to back off. Naomie tells Venita to shut up. Craig uninvites Naomie from her party (but if it is the finale she has to go). Naomie is being a huge bitch right now. Craig who seems oddly sober stands up and says he is going to go back to his villa. He doesn’t want to act like Shep and yell at girls. And so he does
Venita and Naomie exchange some words. I am and will forever be Team Venita. And next week is thankfully the finale. Naomie feels like Venita took Craig’s side. Everyone heads home to drink some more. Naomie and Venita both seem to want to make up but neither is quite ready.
Next week on the season finale, Madison films with Patricia and Whitney before the party. UGH. Shep gives Taylor false hope. Naomie continues to be rude to Venita who is trying to reconcile their differences.
