Dear Lord, we are only on episode five of this season of RHOSLC. Doesn’t it feel LONGER? Like a LOT LONGER? Let’s hope we move this story along tonight. Last week’s episode IN MY OPINION was the worst episode of housewives I have EVER SEEN. I thought there would be more comments to that effect. I can’t believe the interest here is so low. We have a housewife facing TONS of prison time! Hopefully, this weeks RHOSLC recap will have a little bit more for me to work with. It looks like Jen will be coming back from NYC with unexpected news. .
Jen Shah In NYC
We start with Jen Shah in the city that never sleeps. Please let us get into her meetings with her attorneys! I highly doubt they would allow it though so why are the cameras following her there? Or not. We saw nothing in NYC other than taxi cabs going down the street.
Suddenly, we are back in SLC where Lisa is downloading her husband on the trip to Arizona? Lisa is now happy that Whitney told Lisa what was going on behind her back. Meanwhile, Whitney is home with her husband and downloading him on the trip as well. She is hurt that Lisa and Jen were supportive of her trauma journey and Heather would not. I am also someone with childhood drama. But, I don’t think reality TV is the place to air it. Just say you are dealing with some latent trauma an move it. It’s a triggering storyline for many of us.
Heather goes to visit her friend Angie to talk about her trip with the girls. She is coming after Whitney for trying to get her to admit that she and others had heard the rumor about Lisa. Really? This is a storyline I do not need any more of. Thanks, and have a nice day, Whitney. Heather is going to invite all the girls and all of her cousins on a ski day. Meanwhile, Meredith and her husband and oldest son, Brooks, meet up for lunch. Wait are we still pushing Brooks “clothing line???” Seriously? Brooks admits to his parents that he has had a boyfriend for two years. Then he says he is kidding.
Suddenly, Jen is back in SLC. She is going to tell Sharrieff what went down. She says there was another mock trial. Jen is still lying to everyone so I am not sure I can believe a word that comes out of her mouth. And her husband shouldn’t either. But, he seems like a devoted husband. So… they do a couples exercise? It doesn’t happen. Her husband is way too good for her. Jen says her trial has been pushed to July. Jen just wants it to be over. But, she is still lying. I’m struggling to focus on this episode. It is all over the place. And if I was just watching, I’d be fine. But, there isn’t much to recap about.
Whitney Tries (Again) To Leave The Mormon Church
Whitney talks about trying to leave the church. This is apparently her third attempt despite the fact that she cheated on her ex-husband. I love that she realizes that the church doesn’t want to excommunicate her because they want her 10% tithe. Her husband also cheated and he was excommunicated, but the men of the church have to make her decision about her. Sounds like a scam/cult to me. IJS. I am proud of Whitney for exposing “the church.”
I’m technically a member of a large church, but don’t feel the need to withdraw my membership. They too are a bit money hungry, but I still SORTA share their beliefs. I’m NOT anti religion in whatever way you find comfort. Whitney is happy to be done with the Mormon religion, finally.
Next, it is time for Heather’s ski day with her cousins and all the cast mates. YAY! I love skiing scenes! I need more of this in my life. Especially, since I had to leave the my voting site in a wheelchair today. (See my whiner thread comments). I’m just glad I got some shit done today. I WOULD HAVE TO BE DEAD not to vote and there was no line, so I went for it. Sorry. Oversharing. But, Georgia is a pivotal state.
It’s All Downhill From Here
At least that is my prediction before watching the scenes. Lisa is not a skier so she predicts she will be on the bunny hill with Meredith and Jen. Me too Lisa. Anti nothing wrong with the bunny hill. All the fun happens in the lodge. Whitney is still hurt over Whitney’s behavior in Arizona. So that will be the main event it seems. Jen shows up with a big bottle of vodka in her purse. She will apparently be drinking at the bottom of the bunny hill. While I do not drink liquor, I admire her preparedness. LOL. Lisa (I think) is pissed that Angie is there because apparently, Angie started the rumors about Lisa. She’s pissed that Heather invited her.
Even the bunny people are better skiers than me. The bunny hill folks talk about Angie H being there. But they eventually just decide to go to the lodge. Jenn tells the ladies that her trial date has been pushed back. Whitney doesn’t think this is good news because it is not. Meanwhile, Angie H is the pot stirrer. She tells Whitney that Heather feels like she was betrayed by Whitney. Whitney points out that they discussed the rumors about Lisa sleeping with men to get her vodka promoted. Angie H says she doesn’t remember any of that and Whitney is not shocked. I’m still Team Whitney on this. #UnpopularOpinion
Heather apologizes to Lisa for inviting Angie H. She says the thought never crossed her mind and she just invited all of her friends. Lisa says in confessional that the fact she didn’t even realize what she was doing kinda makes it worse. Angie H tries to talk to Lisa but she is not interested. Then, Whitney tries to work out things with Heather. But, Heather doesn’t seem interested in making up.
