Everything I Watched This Week

Hi guys!!

Image result for golden globes 2020 gif

Welcome back to another fun-filled, celebrity induced, week of television here at MHH! With the new year comes award season and the premiere of many new shows, so let’s dive in to what all was watched.

77th Golden Globe Awards

My favorite award show!! My Super Bowl! I love the party feel of it; champagne bottles popping everywhere! And this year in particular, it felt star studded! Leo, Brad, Tom, Jen, Reese … not to mention the entire table of The Irishman. Usually, the show features a few big names, with the rest of the nominees consisting of up and comers. Not this year.

A few highlights:

  • I agree with Ricky Gervais: “So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world.” You may disagree, you’re free to do that, but he’s 100% correct. And hilarious.
  • I love a montage. I love a Tom Hanks montage even more. Seeing Tom Hanks cry while accepting an award that honors his work, thus the montage … *chefs kiss!*
  • I watched Once Upon a Time in Hollywood this past weekend (finally!)

  • I couldn’t be happier to see Tarantino win, Brad win, and the movie win. Per usual, Leo got snubbed.
  • Speaking of the Leo snub, I have adored Taron Egerton since my first time seeing Kingsman; I’ve fallen even harder since the numerous times I’ve watched the movies. I enjoyed Rocketman (not my fav), but I suppose if Leo couldn’t win, I’m happy to see Egerton win. I think he’s the next Leo, maybe the more Millennial Leo.
  • Loved seeing Olivia Colman win for The Crown and her “boozy” comment was so cute!

In closing, I enjoyed every single thing about the Globes: loved Gervais, loved the celebs, and have made plans to go see 1917 in the upcoming weeks. I’ll report back!

The Bachelor

I didn’t plan to watch Peter’s season, but then I figured I’d give the first hour or so a try …

Image result for peter the bachelor gif

I found myself watching the entire show. However, in doing so I decided to be more of a consumer this season. Expect recaps to be sparse. In fact, I came up with my own hashtag (#whenIdvrTheBachelor) because with sleep training my sweet little one, I won’t be able to watch live and Tweet along either. Sad, but worth it.

The first three hours weren’t that cray until the last two dates:

  • While I love whateverhernamewas, I could NOT BELIEVE the very first one-on-one date was Peter’s parents’ vow renewal!!! That seems like something that would be very important to him (obviously, he ordained it!) … yet, now that I think, maybe it wasn’t as special and important as they made it out to be. It was filmed, so how personal could it have been? Hmm…
  • The Hannah B of it all. I am completely dumbfounded by everything that occurred. Okay, they tease her in the promo, but really she just returns to bring him back the wings he gave her on that season? Sure, I’ll take that. But the group date! The windmill story! The emotional breakdown at the end! I can’t decide if ABC paid/forced her to do it, or if everything was real. I definitely believe Peter was her guy last season, and that seemed confirmed with their chemistry on After the Final Rose. SURELY she’s not coming back; well we know she’s not because she was filming DWTS during that time … sheesh! For once, I don’t have an opinion! I don’t know what to think!

Vanderpump Rules Premiere

Image result for vanderpump rules premiere

Just quickly a few things …
  • Surprising myself, I think I’m going to enjoy the new people.
  • I love seeing the parties now in their new homes, rather than their tiny apartments.
  • I don’t care about the Kristen/Carter feud with the Witches of Weho and now with Lala. It sounds to me like Kristen cries to her friends about breaking up with Carter, yet still wants him in her life. I understand why it’s frustrating to her friends, but just ignore it. If she comes to cry to you, pat her shoulder, offer her a drink, listen for ten minutes, then kick her out to continue her messy relationship.

The season looks like it will be good. However, I still think Pump Rules needs to bring in an all new, young cast. Then, Stassi, Lala, Ariana, & Katie should become the Real Housewives of L.A.

In closing,

I watched Jersey and Dallas (holy reunion!!), plus binged Surviving R.Kelly (round two). Thursday, I got to see (AND MEET) my favorite comedian/influencer/podcaster, Girl With No Job (Claudia Oshry, The Morning Toast!). I watched the premiere of Siesta Key (if you’re not watching this season, freaking start!!) and finally, I listened to Leo & Brad on WTF with Marc Maron (BRILLIANT!!). All of this while sleep training my son. But, if celeb gossip & reality TV may not be your thing (why are you here again?), it’s my self-care and stress reliever from the things that are hard. Like sleep training. A 5 month old baby. So judge me for caring about fluff when there’s true terribleness in the world (donate here), but to you I ask, how do you unwind in such a turbulent time?

Whatever it is, I  hope you find your happy!

 

A Decade of Housewives

With the coming of 2020 and the ending of a decade, I’ve seen many Bravo countdowns on Twitter, and I wanted to join in on the fun! I saw one account list its Top 25 Housewives, and Bravo even asked viewers to post their favorite moment from the past ten years. I decided to do something just a bit different; while thinking back on all of the unforgettable moments the Real Housewives have given us, I started wondering what were the most earth shattering, unbelievable, and unforgivable? What were the story lines that were so incredulous and out there, you just had to keep watching to see how everything would play out? Instead of a “favorites” list, I decided to discuss the biggest scandals that rocked the Housewives, not just in the past decade, but ever!!!

Orange County: Brooks fakes cancer

Image result for brooks faked cancer

“I was connnnnnnnned!”

There have been lies and rumors flying around the OC for 14 seasons now: Did Gretchen cheat on her dying fiance? Is Eddie gay? Did Kelly do a train? But the biggest deception to come from the citrus franchise has to be Brooks pretending to have cancer. If you recall, he started dating Vicki, manipulated her relationships with her family & friends (remember the awful things he said about Vicki’s daughter?), got Vicki to pay for his new teeth … and just when everyone started to turn against them, he played the cancer card to gain back sympathy.

Image result for brooks cancer gif

Not only did the psychic say it, but between Queen MKE’s investigating and a Brooks in the Clubhouse sit down with Andy, everything came out in the end. To lie about something that takes loved ones away from their families is absolutely disgusting; I can’t even say how I feel about Brooks because there are no words, so let’s move on.

Atlanta: Kandi drugs Porsha

Image result for kandi drug porsha storyline

Okay no, Kandi did not drug Porsha and I never for a moment thought so. But Ms. Phaedra Parks put the crazy idea into Porsha’s head: that Kandi wanted to drug Porsha to then, well, um, how do I say this, “do things” with P. What the actual F was Phaedra thinking?! AND whhhhy would Porsha believe her? Well, I guess they were BFFs at the time … (gah that seems like forever ago!).

Image result for kandi drug porsha storyline

Not only did it cancel their friendship, it pretty much got Phaedra kicked off the show (that was never proven, but true fans know). Poor Kandi, it could have ruined her businesses, her reputation, gosh, even got her in trouble with the law!

Image result for kandi drug porsha storyline

The Atlanta ladies fight dirty (Porsha & Kenya anyone??), but this had to be one of the most disturbing lies played out in ATL.

Dallas: LeeAnne’s racist comments

Image result for leeanne locken racist

This is ongoing; I just finished part 1 of the Dallas reunion and sheesh, LeeAnne has some major explaining to doooooo. I won’t repeat the awful things LeeAnne said about Kary Brittingham, not just once, not just twice, but at least three different times.

Image result for leeanne locken racist

For all the abuse LeeAnne suffered as a child, and for all the advocacy she does in her adult life, I was truly shocked to hear the things she said, AND see her continued treatment of Kary on the reunion (and lack of a sincere apology on social media). Since the part of the reunion that covered these topics hasn’t aired yet, we’re unsure how/if Bravo will continue with LeeAnne, but I really do believe her comments this season will end her run on the show.

New Jersey: Teresa & Joe go to jail

Image result for teresa giudice jail

Table flipping, Danielle’s past, Melissa stripping (?!) … there have been many unforgettable moments in Jersey. I mean, who can forget the POSCHE fashion show?

Related image

Which year?

Not to mention all the seasons we watched Teresa fight with her family. (“Stop hurting us!”) But, Jersey will always be remembered for its biggest star and her husband going to prison for fraud. In real time, Joe has been deported; he lives in Italy and will never be able to return to live in the United States. I can’t believe it, mostly because of the hurt it has caused his four amazing girls (Gia for President!), but also that everything, every part of this story, aired on Bravo. I guess if you start showing your dirty laundry, you might as well just show it all, plus they obviously need(ed) the money. I hate to be the person to say it, but I’m tired of hearing about the drama between Joe and Teresa; Tre, just date the nice pool man, let Joe find a kind Italian girl … and then raise your beautiful girls in harmony, even if you’re oceans apart.

Image result for teresa giudice jail

I can’t with this photo; Tre’s pose!?

Beverly Hills: Kim is an alcoholic

Image result for kim and kyle fight in limo gif

“You stole my goddamn house!”

Accusations of doing cocaine, “Puppy Gate,” & surrogates have all been popular scandals that shook Beverly Hills, but I don’t think anything was harder to watch (& longer played out) than Kim Richard’s sobriety. After she sat down with Andy …

Image result for kim richards sits down with andy

… confirming she is in fact an alcoholic, thinking back on the early seasons (and catching reruns), they’re viewed with a different lens. It’s really difficult to stomach the scenes of Kim fighting with Kyle; remember that weird boyfriend Kim had in season two, the group vacation they took where she was late to everything and fought with Mauricio, but kept calling him Maurice?

Image result for kim richards ken blumenfeld gif

If you’re a true BH fan, you know Kim eventually got arrested for shoplifting and things didn’t seem to get better between her and Kyle for a long while. In real time, Kim is no longer on the show and truly seems happy being a grandmother. I don’t follow her on social media, but I wish her all the joy, success, and good luck for her future!

RHOBH runner ups:
Taylor Armstrong’s husband (“But now we said it!”)
Yolanda and Munchhausen

New York: It’s about Tom

Image result for tom and luann

I always thought the craziest thing Luann aired was the pirate scandal, remember that? Then came Tom. First it was totally nuts that she dated Jacque way longer than Tom, yet never got engaged to J, but knew Tom for a minute and was ready to marry him. Also, what about the fact that Tom was a “lover” of Sonja’s and kissed/dated Ramona too, right? Even though “committed” to Lu, Tom’s dirty ways didn’t stop.

Image result for dont let it be about tom

Image result for dont let it be about tom

Honestly, I don’t remember if the whole “Please don’t let it be about Tom” scandal was pre-engagement, or post-engagement but pre-wedding, regardless, it was bad. Luann stuck by her man though, which led to a horrible marriage and eventual divorce, and ultimately, the most bizarre police tape of a housewife arrest in history.

You can watch the entire thing on YouTube.

Potomac: Michael’s many missteps

Related image

None of us really care if he is or isn’t, but Michael’s inappropriate actions towards men, while married, was wrong. It’s also been a story line since season one, so obviously where there is smoke, there’s fire. The lost footage that apparently was found this last season, on top of the fact that there was an actual allegation put out there has rocked Potomac. What else has been a consistent show topic besides this, Karen’s finances? I’m very curious to see how the next season shapes up now that Michael and Ashley have a baby together. Although I did hear she’s off the show; guess we’ll see.

Well, there you have it! My list of the plot lines in Housewife history that are so ridiculous, they have to be made up!  Yet, we continue to watch. The debate over viewers’ judgement (especially in the Twittersphere) on reality television stars is comical to me because if someone is going to lie or commit bad behavior, while a camera crew follows their movements, they deserve to be judged. Don’t for one second say you watch these shows to feel sympathy for the cast; we watch to be entertained by the shocking moments. If it’s too much for you, stop watching. (But don’t ever stop reading my blog!)

Until next time!! 

(ps … I enjoy the Twittersphere! Come follow me and discuss: @myhollywoodh !!!)

Jersey & Dallas Recaps

Hello and welcome!! If you’re curious about my housewives recaps, I’m trying something new (read more here!) Otherwise, let’s begin!

RHONJ: “Cut From A Different Cloth”

Image result for rhonj recap cut from a different cloth

“Horses, beaches, fights.
Jackie versus Dolores.
This one was boring.”

Honestly, I would have preferred to watch the husbands playing poker; that was more entertaining. They were so funny! The Jersey husbands have always been my favorites. However, the show centers on the women, so I guess we must discuss them. I really thought Teresa was going to go off more when she pulled down that sign about 21 year olds; in my notes, I even put “Here comes the Teresa bomb.” Instead the episode focused mostly on Jackie and Dolores. I feel like Jackie needs to let stuff go, but at the same time, she was right when she said the women have a history of really escalating arguments (cue a montage). Other then that, and the mention of clogged toilets & respect, not much went on besides Jennifer falling into an ocean full of s***.

RHOD: “One Fight in Bangkok”

Image result for rhod one fight in bangkok

“LeeAnne, you’re my GIRL,
But sadly, you’re so wrong here.
You think she agrees?”

First, it the was turning of the elephant visit into a drama fest, with her explaining that each elephant is “broken” and that she can relate. I understand LeeAnne had a horrible childhood, but I found myself thinking the same thing as Brandi: LeeAnne tends to make so much of everything about herself. Then, there was LeeAnne’s not wanting to buy a friendship bracelet, when it was simply supposed to be for fun to remember their trip. The “Mexican” comment from last week never came up (because Stephanie Hollman is a saint), but LeeAnne made another offensive comment about Kary (in the taxi ride towards the end of the episode), plus the entire LeeAnne/Kary back & forth was annoying … it was totally because LeeAnne was jealous that Kam was paying attention to Kary. Speaking of Kameron, her whiteboard & Expo marker demonstrations deserve an Emmy!

Next week looks pretty intense for the Dallas ladies, and unfortunately, LeeAnne still seems to be in the wrong. We’ll see!

Housewives Haiku

Welcome to the first addition of “Housewives Haiku!” If you don’t know what a haiku is, look it up. My goal is to recap the housewives each week in a simple form, with just a few added notes in-between. If you’ve been a fan of MHH, then you know I recently had a baby, (if not you can read about it here and here!!) and I don’t have time for my typical, long-winded recaps (I’m sure they’ll be back from time to time). So hopefully this format allows me to better keep up a bit … because even with my sweet sweet boy, mama needs a break at times, and my girls on Bravo help with that!

First up: RHOA “The Regift That Keeps on Giving”

Image result for real housewives of atlanta season 12 episode 4

Kenya is messy,
yet, I’m so here for the shade!
Cynthia? Girl, bye!

I’m sick of the Cynthia and Nene feud, who cares, it’s happened before. I also feel like, why is Cynthia starting this random friendship with Eva, plus starting in with Kenya (who is supposed to be her close friend), and then also bringing around “I’m that b**** Yovanna” whoever she is …? Everything seems like Cynthia is trying to keep herself relevant for the show … which I guess was what Nene basically said about her, to continue said feud; that Cynthia is looking desperate? That’s not really cool of Nene to say, though because she’s freaking annoying too! Remember her behavior and attitude at last season’s reunion (Rose & Thorn: RHOA Reunion) ?? Eck. If anything, I’m just wanting more Porsha and Kenya friendship, Kandi is interesting to me, so she can have more screen time too; Marlo taking in her nieces and nephews (she was incredible this episode btw), make that a story line, please! But, time to cancel Nene and Miss “Chill”.

Then, RHOC “Wild Wild Key West”

Image result for real housewives of oc wild wild key west"

Never thought I’d say,
OC is so good right now.
Holy! Reunion!

By that, I mean the reunion is going to be cray. Speaking of cray, could you imagine being at that bar at one in the morning, hearing grown women yelling at each other, calling one another sluts?! Could you even more imagine being those guys, driving the little tiki boats, hearing the housewives say the things they said? Screaming, gesturing the way they did; Kelly again calling Vicki a pig? I mean, my dream in life is to witness a housewife fight in person, but if you didn’t know these people?! I can’t imagine what someone would think. As for the fights, I’m not sure whose side I’m on. Kelly gives a low blow, then apologizes, then gives another low blow. But at the same time, the tres amigas aren’t innocent either. I think I’m Team Emily this episode; she had some great one-liners, especially comparing the women to drag queens *cough* Vicki. And speaking of Vicki, a special haiku for her …

Little family van.
Never been with multiples.
I was the one conned.

Check back for another addition of “Housewives Haiku” in which we’ll recap Jersey & Dallas!

The OC is Out of Control

“I was rooting for you; we were all rooting for you!”

In recent years, I have very much become a member of Team Kelly Dodd, despite her past behavior …

… AND what about the “no wonder her daughter doesn’t speak to her” comment. I’ve swept it all under the bridge, forgiven her, and jumped on her bandwagon. I’ve also understood why she’s been so upset at the ladies recently, between Vicki’s coke accusation & Tamra’s train comment. But despite all of it, Kelly was back to her old ways on this week’s episode.

I’m not talking about hitting Shannon on the head; honestly, I don’t think Kelly even hit her that hard & Shannon will take any excuse to dramatically play the victim. I’m talking about everything nasty Kelly said to Gina (talk about kicking someone when they’re down …) & how awful she was to Tamra on the phone. Kelly just got downright dirty this week (oh! And did you catch her on WWHL?! Awkwwwwward!)

The Emily of it all….

I have a bone to pick with Emily too. I’m disappointed because she was another one I was cheering for this season.

I’m sad at how she’s treating Gina, who is a mess. Emily should have 💯 percent been sympathetic about why Gina wouldn’t go to Vegas and defended her when Kelly attacked Gina. I think Emily is simply jealous of Gina’s relationship with the blondes, plus she’s sad. She has to be; wouldn’t you be sad if you were married to Shane this season?

In closing …

While I’m not of the same mind with Kelly and how she acted this week,  I do agree with her that Shannon should not have been drinking if she had a concussion, and I can understand Kelly’s reasons to not trust Shannon (and if you’ve been keeping up with them presently, nothing seems better). I’m also glad Kelly made up & comforted Gina. You could say that Kelly redeemed herself in the end (until next week).

I’m proud of Vicki this episode. She stayed in her room when Kelly was talking about her right outside. She didn’t seem to start any drama either (yet). And one more time Kelly, TAMRA said “train” not Vicki (omg I’m defending Vicki 🤦🏻‍♀️).

The scene in the yoga studio confirmed to me that Emily is for sure jealous of Gina’s friendship with Tamra & Shannon. However, Emily handled herself well because Tamra & Shannon’s faces alone would have pissed me off.

The Orange County housewives are definitely bringing the drama this season and if you’re not watching due to lack of entertainment in the past, pick it back up asap!

Next week looks just as epic!🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊🍊

Potomac Reunion (Part 1 & Pocket-Sized)

If you watched, then you know …

What shocked me

  • Karen & Ashley sitting next to each other
  • Gizelle & her ex !!!!!! (Anyone see them front row at the Chapelle Netflix special?Orrrr hear this ……. 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻)

  • I’m surprised it wasn’t discussed further that Karen’s scent smells “elderly” per Ashley & Gizelle ….
  • “So you’re renting”
  • Andy calling out Candiace’s mother & asking her to hit him with her purse🤣
  • Omggggggg Ashley & Candiace … SHUT up!
  • I had no idea Ashley was going through depression after giving birth, yet …

Questions I have

  • Has Gizelle always been this shady or is it just for the show? Who from her past can answer this for me?
  • What was that weird look between Candiace and her mom when Andy asked if they still go to therapy?

Anything else?

  • Per outfit choices, loved Monique’s earrings, & Candiace’s shoes, yet wasn’t surprised Robyn had crazy ugly nails #nototheneon

Things are just beginning to heat up in Potomac! See you next week!

I’m Currently Watching …

img_3823

Week 6 of maternity leave is in full effect. I love my baby & our time together! Besides his eating and pooping a lot, the two of us spend our days doing what else?? Watching & discussing television. His current favorites include …

Big Brother

I always root for an underdog, so I am wanting either Nicole or Cliff to come away as the winner. I thought it was interesting that CBS aired Nicole reading her Head of Household letter; it’s as if they want her to win America’s Favorite Player, or the network just wants to show that it actually cast at least one genuine, good person?

Speaking of a not so genuine or good person, Michie is HOH currently. As I write this, I already know who won the POV and what that person plans to do with it. All I can say is I really hope this plan goes through; we’ll just have to see tonight!

Bachelor in Paradise

I can’t believe Caelynn left with Dean, I’m kind of digging Dylan & Hannah’s relationship, and please get Nicole & Clay off my screen. Other than that? Snooze fest.

This is the last week for paradise, right? Doesn’t DWTS start next week? Every year that I watch Paradise, I kind of feel like the final couple episodes are extremely boring, and I’m just not as into it. I’m ready for the reunion; that’s all I care about at this point.

Friends

img_3819

This is my first time sitting down to watch Friends from the beginning, in order. Usually I catch an episode here & there if nothing else is on. I know, I know, I know. How is that even possible? Everyone has seen and loves this show! It’s just one I never really got into before.

I decided to start watching it as a light- hearted, stress reliever during my baby’s newborn phase of late nights, cry fits, & my emotional overthinking of every little thing; come to find out, the show has helped so so much! I would literally prescribe it to anyone ever feeling anxious or sad. I’m so in love & invested after only three seasons that I purchased some of the PJs from the Friends line at Walmart. You can get yours at the link below 👇🏻 !!

Wal-Mart

Chandler is obviously my favorite, who’s yours?

Dave Chappell & Travis Scott

My husband and I recently watched Dave Chapelle’s Netflix stand up special. I cannot stress enough how not only hilarious, but accurate it is in today’s climate. However, Chapelle is definitely not PC in it. I would take this as a warning if you decide to watch, especially if you are one that is easily offended🙄.

I also started to watch the Travis Scott documentary, but I couldn’t finish it. Maybe I just don’t get him or his music? Honestly I just wanted to watch for the Kylie of it all. Instead, it seemed like mostly concert footage, and I wasn’t in the mood. It didn’t seem to tell much about his life or background or anything; maybe I gave up too soon?

Football Sundays

Go Chiefs!!!

I’m also watching Potomac, Orange County, & Dallas Housewives, AND Keeping Up, all of which are not disappointing, but rather are seeeeeerving up entertainment!

Come find me on Twitter @myhollywoodh to follow my thoughts on all things Bravo & more😘

“Because she blocked me on Instagram!” RHOC Recap

Orange County is back!

We’re three episodes into the 14th season of Orange County, and I have some thoughts! An orange was taken away from an OG, while a mother of seven has come to entertain …

Shannon

Image result for real housewives of orange county

Fun Shannon is here and she wants everyone to know it!! It’s a teeeeny bit annoying though, like stop trying to make fetch happen. However, I prefer this Shannon over “You will all see the truth!” sad, crying Shannon.

Per the first few episodes, I’m very proud of Shannon for accepting Braunwyn, instead of rejecting her like she’s done with new girls in the past (“I start charities, Meghan!”). I hope her positive attitude lasts the rest of the season. And, while I’m loving, living, HERE FOR a Kelly/Shannon bffriendship, that does not look like it lasts …. hmmm …. !!!
(I blame Tamra🚂)

Gina

Image result for real housewives of orange county gina

Ughhhh, why did Bravo bring her back? What does she add to the show besides a DUI? All I’m really getting from Gina in are Amanda Bynes vibes, with the horrible platinum hair and bad decisions.

However, Gina let us know how we got here on this week’s episode: her husband had an affair and seems to still be seeing the women he cheated with. Clearly Gina didn’t want to reveal any of this on the show, but now it all makes so much sense! This explains why she was so vague about their divorce last season, plus explains why she seems to be struggling so much this year. Ugh, I actually feel really bad for her.

Kelly

Image result for real housewives of orange county

“Pancake titties!”

I’m here for Kelly this season, much as I am every season. She has a new man (currently over), a blossoming friendship with Shannon (also over), and one of the better taglines (at least she gets one win!). Seeing as so much has changed in her relationships since filming, I’m curious to see how the season plays out for her.

I also want to say I think she’s a great mom (the ski trip looked so fun!), and I feel terrible for the DMs her daughter received due to the drama between Kelly and Vicki. #boo

(I just realized I picked horrible pictures of the women … oh well 🤷🏻‍♀️🙃)

Tamra

Image result for real housewives of orange county season 14

New house, same Tamra. We’ve learned Eddie is healthy, and Ryan is a Trump stan, but besides that, what’s really new with Tamra except for her two new staircases and county club membership?

This week (again) not much happened with Tamra, except at the blonde bombshell dinner towards the end of the episode. Tamra yelled out ” train” in regards to a rumor about Kelly. Go on Twitter if you don’t know what this means; I refuse to say. For Tamra (in real time) to not understand “what she did” to Kelly, like, Tamra can’t be that dumb; the proof was at that dinner and what she said regarding Kelly. Honestly I’m very disappointed in Tamra.

Emily

Screenshot 2019-08-18 at 7.10.26 PM

Is Emily the next housewife to follow in the footsteps of so many before her and get divorced? She should because Shane is freaking awful! He had some bad moments last season, but I can’t bear to watch anything regarding him this season! Emily literally threw a dinner for his family and he couldn’t bother to show! Not only that, on the phone he was a complete 🍆 to her!! Perhaps Shane’s getting a bad edit?

I think not though because this week Emily shared the Vegas performance she planned for him, and how he shut that down. I kind of agreed with Gina that Shane wouldn’t be into it, however, at the end of the day, I’m over his studying/horrible attitude/bad edit. I’m needing a new story line for Em.

New Girl

Image result for real housewives of orange county season 14

How has Braunwyn not become an OC housewife sooner?! She may be the first newbie I not only approve of, but am obsessed with! She has the best tagline (“I manage to wrangle a family of nine and still look like a ten”), she fits in well with the women, she stood up to Vicki (but was also willing to apologize!), she is (appears to be) a great mom, and she’s open & honest! I was so surprised by the story she shared with Shannon about all her daughter’s struggles. I’m really here for Braunwyn friendship with Shannon, and learning more about her this season!

Friend Of

Image result for real housewives of orange county season 14

🐷🐷

I can NOT believe the pig video Kelly sent to Vicki! While you should never ever speak on someone’s looks, Vicki took the first shot by throwing out into the universe that Kelly does cocaine. However, the bigger story this season is that Vicki got “demoted” to “friend of”; I’m not quite sure how I feel about this. To me, OC isn’t the OC without the OG, but recently all the OGs have been so annoying & self-centered (Vicki, Nene, Teresa, LVP, Luann), so it’s probably a good lesson to learn: no housewife is safe.

For Vicki, this week’s episode opened with the continued fight between her and Kelly at Tamra’s, basically a replay of the last 10 minutes of last week’s show.

Vicki is tooooo much; she was her classic Vicki self in the way she attempted to “lecture” Braunwynn how to act & think in the group, and at the ladies’ dinner, Vicki continued her messy messy ways, by spreading more lies about Kelly. Vicki said juuuuust enough to cause problems (“What I know is so much worse than doing coke”), then drunk Tamra finished it for her (🚂).

If all these rumors are going to do anything, it will be to provide us with some intense drama in the weeks to come!

Southern Charm Finale

Season 6 has come to an end …

and I really enjoyed it! Southern Charm, though, is a show where every season is suburb in my opinion, never boring; for that reason, I was ready to crown season 6 the best yet!

But then in reflection, what actually happened? There was only so much of Cam’s motherhood journey and Craig’s pillow business I could watch. Oh, and if I had to see the video of Austen in his underwear yelling “Madison!” one more time, I’d have gone insane! I believe, too, that the show brought Eliza on just so Ashley could be back, which was pointless, in my opinion.

BUT! BUT! I still enjoyed tuning in every single week. I never felt like watching Southern Charm was a chore (much how I feel about RHONY). Plus, Madison did provide us a new iconic Bravo moment with the chlamydia accusation no one saw coming! While I heard the reunion wasn’t quite on say, Vanderpump level drama (rumor is they all partied together that weekend after filming the reunion), the finale brought with it a Patrica Party, which always brings both the glam and drama!

5 Takeaways From the Southern Charm Finale

1. Kathryn & Patricia’s friendship

I loved the opening scene with Kathryn and Patricia shopping for shoes and discussing Charleston gossip, mostly Ashley. It was a fabulous conversation and a fabulous scene for me as a fan; I’ve followed the blossoming of their friendship on social media since last season’s #HiAshley movement.

I’d also like to put on the record that Kathryn should just marry Whitney: they have a history since season one, they hooked up this season, I want more Kathryn & Patricia (and by more, I want them to be in-laws), and last, Whitney and Kathryn properly squashed any bad blood at the Stag party … meaning there is hope for them in the future after all!

2. Shep’s & Craig’s dates …

aka … the girls from Austen’s video. Shady shady Shep, wtf! And to bring sweet baby Craig into your schemes? You should be ashamed! It’s sooo obvious that Shep has it out for Madison because she turned him down, right? What else could it be? It was the same reason Shep didn’t like Austen dating CHELT-sea.

Cameran even called Shep out on all of this, sooo you know it’s true.

3. Cam & Kat’s boo thangs

It’s not a huge deal, but I was pleasantly surprised to see Cameran’s husband, Jason, show up to the party and agree to be filmed (even if Cam was paying more attention to Metul).

I saw that Kathryn was dating Hunter Price on Instagram and I was here 👏🏻 for 👏🏻 it 👏🏻 !! A) He’s not a politician, B) he’s her age, C) he’s a musician, D) they’re all around so cute together! I was happy to see him on the show because I didn’t think she’d reveal any details about him until maybe the reunion, but I ship them hard and want him to appear all over season 7!

4. Did they or didn’t they??

I loved that Cam, Chelsea, Kathryn, and Naomie took the girls from Austen’s infamous video to ask what really happened, aka did s-e-x occur or not? Obviously the girls said no, although I have a really difficult time believing that. Plus listening to those two blabber on while smashed was just as difficult.

For “one time and one time only” Madison apologized to Shep for the Dani/STD comment. Shep didn’t seem to care, said he was not sorry for anything he’d done (why?!), and was all around either on something, or just being a completely terrible human.

He needs to atone.

5. Ashley’s “ambush”

While Ashley’s presence at the party was stupid and short lived, it brought great moments: Pat’s wink to security, everyone scurrering to the balcony to watch, Ashley calling Thomas, his suggesting she call 911, to finally, the update that Ashley left Charleston and is bffs with Landon (go figure)!

Minor takeaways & final thoughts …

    Naomie’s mom is freaking adorable & I’m in love with her! 💖
    The hair stylists face when Ashley was talking about Patricia was/is all of us. 🤣
    Kathryn’s dress!!!!! 😮😎
    I cant WAIT for all of this to be addressed at the reunion next week👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻
