Could this episode have been any more awkward? I seriously doubt it. If I wasn’t pregnant, I would have been 2/3 way through a bottle of Pinot Grigio by the end of that one. Let’s talk RHOC recap!
Still not sure how I feel about this Alexis/Vicki best-friendship. It’s so…WEIRD! But I think I like it. I am confused, though. Alexis comes over to Vicki’s for a cocktail and she brings a “Congratulations on your plastic surgery” gift (a mirror). Didn’t Alexis already see Vicki’s new face when she came over to meet the new baby?
Vicki convinces Alexis to accompany her to Tamra’s fitness studio dinner party. Alexis manages to score an invite for Lydia, too. Hooray.
Heather heads off for her new radio gig. She’s still feeling like she needs some type of career in order to feel fulfilled. She does awesome but she’s too pretty for radio! Not sure if she needed those false eyelashes, though…
Alexis and Lydia get together for coffee and kids. Lydia reveals that she recently met their “mutual friend” Heather. She also immediately tells Alexis that Heather mentioned Alexis having a fake ring. I can totally tell that Lydia is going to be one of those flighty girls with no loyalties.
Like I said, no loyalties. The next scene shows Lydia, Heather, and the hubbies going out to dinner together. Heather and Terry awkwardly decline Lydia’s husband’s offer to put the Dubrow house in their magazine. (If it’s not the cover, they’re not interested!) Heather also warns Lydia to “be aware of the company that she keeps.” It’s hard to tell what Lydia comprehends of the conversation, because all she really gets out are the words “totally” and “awesome.” Over and over.
The night of the party, Tamra’s throwing a hissy fit and snapping at Eddie as she puts on her hooker makeup and extensions. Then she goes to the bathroom to either poop or vomit for the final phase of her party prep.
Alexis is adorably hopeful (sorry, it appears I’m OFFICIALLY on Team Alexis now) before the party. Oh Alexis. You should know better.
Tamra sets out “special” wineglasses for the cool kids- Heather and Gretchen. So mature. Heather walks into the dinner party and
insults compliments host Tamra by saying “Oh it looks like The Bachelor!” Lol.
I can’t decide who’s dress is the ugliest, but I think I’m gonna go with Gretchen. Tamra’s face looks like she had work done…anyone else? I thought that the dinner with Lydia and Alexis was awkward, but this party is UNBEARABLE.
All is going well until Vicki refers to her grandson as “my baby,” and for some reason Gretchen thinks this is funny. Vicki declares Gretchen “stupid” and any semblance of polite relations between the two factions is now out the window. Oy.
These women are insane. Why does Tamra think, as the host of this party, that it’s a great idea to rehash her issues with Alexis right now? Then Gretchen jumps in. Then Heather jumps in. Sigh. I guess Alexis was wrong to think that this party could have been the first step to moving forward with the ladies.
Tamra eventually loses her shit and starts kicking and screaming like a four-year-old having a tantrum. She physically removes Alexis from the elegant warehouse dinner. I really don’t know what Tamra’s problem is. She was so likable when she first came on the show. What happened?
I like Alexis now. I have always liked Heather. But I’m going with Alexis on this one. Whose side are you on?
