What I Watched Today
(rambling, random thoughts & annoyingly detailed recaps from real time TV watching)
Franco dreams about Andrew.
Michael sees Nelle at her office. She was getting worried, since he seemed distant the last time they saw each other. He wants to talk about something to her personally. She asks if Curtis found when was needed to clear her name, but Michael says that he found something else.
At Kelly’s, Jordan accuses Curtis of being egotistical, and talking to himself in the mirror. She shows him the recording on her phone, and he says she needs to delete that. Stella walks in, and Jordan wonders if she should prepare for WWIII. Trish runs up to Stella, thanking her for the help, and saying she’s one of a kind.
Sam is glad to be home. Jason says that the kids are being dropped off later. She wants to absorb what happened, and wonders what the kids will think. Jason says, probably not much. Agreed.
Carly talks to Sonny about moving back in together, and says Josslyn has reservations, but is coming around. Brick comes by to discuss something with Sonny that couldn’t wait. Carly says she’ll leave them alone, but Brick will fill her in later. They flirt, and Sonny is like, all right, all right. Brick tells Sonny that he’s under surveillance.
The guys from the church stop Patient 6. He’s made it a long way, but he’s not going any farther.
Nelle asks what Curtis found. Michael asks if she remembers what she told the police after Zack died. She says she told them a lot of things, and he says this would stand out. It’s the part about her not being a strong swimmer. She asks why they’re talking about this, and Michael shows her the article. He says she was the star of her high school swim team. Why lie?
Franco talks to Elizabeth about weird dreams, and how they can be so vivid, yet disappear when you wake up. He says he was dreaming about Andrew and the way he died.
Sam asks Jason if he knew Julian wanted to sell, and that’s why he decided on the publishing business. He says once he looked into it, he realized it would be a great opportunity. He has a lot to learn, but has a mind for finances and can run a company. She asks if it’s what he wants to do, and he says what he wants is a legitimate business for them to run together. Before, he kept her in the dark about his business for her protection, but now he can tell the truth. Sam says she’s on board with one condition. If he starts to feel trapped, she wants him to talk away and not look back. They can have whatever life they want. He says running a company and riding motorcycles aren’t mutually exclusive.
Brick tells Sonny the place is clean, but the phones are tapped. It’s sophisticated stuff, and the software is something he’s never seen before. He says it could be the Feds, or they sold it to someone else. Sonny says he’s been looked at by the Feds before, and they’ve come up empty.
Patient 6 fights with the men, and gets one in a headlock. He tells the other to drop his gun and slide it over. The guy asks what he wants. He knocks the first guy out, and throws him the phone. Patient 6 says he wants the guy to make a call for him.
Trish tells Stella that she handled her first day like a pro, and sees her other angel. She says without the two of them, her father wouldn’t be alive. She thanks Jordan. Jordan explains to Curtis that Trish’s father has dementia. There was a disturbance call, and he was trying to get into an apartment that wasn’t his. She and Martinez talked him down, and took him to GH. His daughter took it from there. Stella says she didn’t see Jordan’s name on the police report, and Jordan says it must have been an oversight. Curtis thinks she should call it what it is. She wanted to help a rookie. He asks how long before Stella is running things at GH, and Stella tells him two weeks. She says that duty calls, and leaves. Curtis wonders what are the odds of Stella and Jordan helping the same person on the same day, and thinks they’re not as far apart as they think.
Brick leaves, and Sonny tells Carly about being under surveillance. She says Brick just did a sweep, and he tells her it’s probably the Feds. She asks if she should be worried. He tells her no, thanks to Brick.
Patient 6 tells the man to get on his knees and call whoever he’s answering to at the clinic. He’s to tell them that they have the patient, and are headed back to Russia. He holds the gun on the man while he makes the call. The man asks now what, and Patient 6 knocks him out. He goes through the men’s pockets, taking their cash and guns.
Sam is concerned about getting to the bottom of what Franco is hiding. Jason says Elizabeth is obviously aware of it, so it can’t be that bad. Sam says Elizabeth thinks the best of Franco and he exploits that, and Jason thinks the best of Elizabeth. Jason says they’ll figure it out and not to let it spoil the day.
Elizabeth tells Franco that when a child dies, everyone is looking for answers because it seems unfair. He had his imaginary friend for years, so this change must be affecting his thinking. Franco says she missed her calling as a shrink. Elizabeth feels partly to blame for putting pressure on him to tell Jason. She still thinks he deserves to know, and Franco should be the one to tell him. Franco thinks Jason will just despise him more, but Elizabeth says he had nothing to do with it. These two have sheets almost as loud as Ava’s. He says he loves his mother, and the Quartermaines are rick and powerful, and have connections. He doesn’t want to put her through it. Elizabeth doesn’t think Jason is going to let Betsy be picked on after being bullied by Heather, but Franco doesn’t see him ever letting it go. Elizabeth says let him dig; he’ll just find out the same thing. His twin died from natural causes. No one could have done anything different to change that, including him. Well, yeah, he was three.
Sonny tells Carly that he’s been through this before; he just won’t discuss business on the phone. He thinks maybe he should contact his partners in South America. Carly tells him if he’s going to the island, there’s some things they need to do. They kiss.
Nelle tells Michael that it seems like a lifetime ago, and Curtis did his homework. She asks why he’s digging up dirt on her, and Michael says he hired him to get the truth, so she could be cleared. She says she was on the swim team, but it doesn’t mean she could save Zack. A swimming pool is very different. Zack was a big guy, and she knew she couldn’t get him into her kayak. He asks why she didn’t tell the police, and she says that she was terrified. Zack was from a rich, old family who are influential. They’d do anything to make her look guilty (except apparently reading the local paper), and the best lawyers would have pounced on her. She says maybe it was a mistake, but she was trying to protect herself. Michael asks if that’s the only lie, or is there something else?
Elizabeth tells Franco that she’s glad he has the art program up and running again. He tells her money works wonders, but she says he works wonders. Stella comes in and hugs Elizabeth who introduces Franco. Stella says so he’s the one who puts a smile on her face. Elizabeth explains that he’s a colleague. Stella says, and she’s the queen of England. She tells Franco that Elizabeth was her nurse, and gave her excellent care. Elizabeth asks about the job, and Stella says she loves it, but forgot how hard this line of work is. She says some parents are requiring a copy of their son’s death certificate, and overdose is a word they’ll see forever. She almost wishes the didn’t list the cause of death. Elizabeth has to get to work. Stella tells Franco, colleague her you-know-what. He asks how one goes about getting a death certificate.
Patient 6 goes to Sonny’s place, and walks in from the back. He looks at family photos and shakes his head. He hears the guards talking about checking the perimeter, and jets out the way he came.
Sonny and Carly meet Sam and Jason at the MetroCourt. Carly asks what’s up, and Jason wants champagne. She says it must be a big deal. He tells them that his life is going in a different direction. He wasn’t sure where it was going to go, but they figured it out. Carly begs them not to say they’re moving, but Jason tells her they’re staying in Port Charles. Their new business is there. Carly asks if they’ve decided to get serious about being P.I.s, but Sam says it’s more of a departure. She and Jason are the new owner of Derek Wells Media.
Stella tells Franco it’s pretty simple; death certificates are a matter of public record. All he has to do is search the name. He tells her he thought it might involve the police, and they don’t like him. She asks if he’s referring to the Port Charles police, and he says in general, but definitely the Port Charles police. She says he must know her nephew’s girlfriend, Jordan Ashford. He says they’re acquainted.
Curtis tells Jordan that she and Stella have something in common. She says yeah, you, but he says that they’re forever part of that woman’s story, and it could be a game changer. Jordan wonders in what universe, and Curtis says Stella is going to realize what an amazing woman she is. Jordan says he’s dreaming. Stella despises her. He says it won’t happen overnight, but Stella is a phenomenal woman, a good woman with a big heart, although she holds a mean grudge. Jordan says she didn’t notice. Curtis tells her in time, Stella will find out what Jordan means to him, and when he’s right, he’ll be the first to say I told you so.
Nelle tells Michael that she’s always on the defensive, assuming everyone will think the worst; it’s a reflex. He asks if it has something to do with her father lying to her throughout her entire life. She says partly, but partly it’s just her. Michael says she could have gotten away with it years ago, but we’re living in a world of total transparency now. All lies come out, because someone, somewhere has a camera phone, and eventually you get caught. He knows she’s not stupid, and gets it, but something has to change.
Nelle says Michael must think she’s pathetic, but he says just the opposite. She’s a grown woman and makes mistakes. She messes up, lies to get out of it, and just digs herself in deeper. He saw Morgan do it a million times. It doesn’t make her a bad person or pathetic, but flawed like the rest of them. She says not him, but he says he’s far from perfect. She asks what now, and he says he hired Curtis to make things better, but it only made it worse. It’s not his fault, but Michael’s. He’s calling it off. She deserves a clean slate. Morgan got one, but was never able to use it. He doesn’t want the same thing happening to her. She hugs him.
Stella asks Franco if he’s been in trouble with the law, and he says Jordan is arrest happy. Stella says no one is perfect (the phrase of the day), least of all Jordan. He asks if he detects friction, and she says he detects she has to get to work. She tells him to be good to Elizabeth or he’ll answer to her. When she’s gone, Franco gets on the unattended hospital computer.
Patient 6 goes to Jason’s place.
Sonny is shocked that Jason bought Julian’s company. Sam says he looks as surprised as she was. Sonny says he knew Jason wanted to go legit, and Carly asks if they know anything about publishing. Sam says not really. They have a lot to learn. Jason says that’s why he got the company. They can work together, and it will be predictable. He’ll always be grateful to Sonny. Sonny says he gets it, and Carly says it’s different, but wonderful. Sonny is happy for them, and Carly asks if they can get a deal on cable. Same suddenly remembers that she has to sign a permission slip, and says she’ll be right back. Really? When the other day they did that online?
Patient 6 knocks on the door a few times. When there’s no answer, he slips the lock. He calls out for Sam, and asks if anybody is home. He sees Sam’s motorcycle jacket and smells it, remembering when he gave it to her. In his flashback, Sam says she won’t be alone. She’ll be thinking of him, and she’ll be writing and visiting. So he’s Jason? Are we sure now? Can I stop calling him Patient 6?
Nelle thanks Michael for understanding and trying to help. She doesn’t always get that, and it’s a chance to start over. She tells him she wants to splash some water on her face and reboot. He calls Curtis, an tells him to drop the investigation on Nelle. Curtis says, just like that, after evidence that was uncovered that’s suspicious? Michael says he’s off the case. Nelle listens and smiles. Kind of.
Stella tells Elizabeth that Franco is a strange bird. She asks what they talked about, and Stella tells her the intimate details of their relationship. She’s just playing, but says one thing for sure is that he’s head over heels for her.
Franco looks for a record of Andrew Frank, but there’s no match. Um… did he think Betsy would use a real name? That’s if she didn’t bury him in the backyard.
Patient 6 looks around. He heaves a sigh. He sees some toy cars, and picks up a motorcycle. He walks out on the balcony, and tears up. He hears something, and turns around. Sam is coming into the apartment.
Tomorrow, Griff makes a decision, Scotty asks if Ava had company, and Patient 6 walks back into the apartment. Maybe.
The Real Housewives of Orange County
Welcome back to the OC, otherwise known as land of the nosiest people in the world.
Lydia tells Doug that she talked to the godfather of Iceland, who’s impressed with the magazine. She’s planning a trip there, and Doug suggests bringing her friends along, but reminds her they’re representing the magazine. Other than Lydia, I wouldn’t have anyone from this cast, except maybe Peggy, represent anything.
Tamra talks to Shannon, who claims David was just confused, and didn’t grill Diko. Tamra says Shannon has a hard time letting things go. Really? I wouldn’t have guessed. She tells us that Shannon is still fragile, and she’s walking on eggshells. Shannon gets all annoyed, and tells Tamra to stop talking about it. She says Tamra keeps telling her not give it life, but keeps asking about it. Um… she brought it up. Almost before Tamra said hello.
Vicki goes for a heart check-up. We flash back to various stressful situations in Vicki’s life, where she’s screaming and yelling at [insert name of any present or former cast member here]. She’s adamant about fixing the problems with Tamra and Shannon. She doesn’t want to keel over from stress because they didn’t want to be friends. Someone needs to tell Vicki that you actually don’t have to be friends with everyone. Although God knows, I’d be friends with Vicki before the other two. Vicki tells the doctor that her father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at fifty-nine, and she’s fifty-five. He doesn’t like the results of her tests. Her EKG is abnormal. He thinks there’s a block, and they have to find out what’s causing it. One of her heart chambers is also enlarged. She wants to stay healthy for her kids, and he tells her that it’s nothing dangerous. She asks if you hit fifty-five and you just fall apart. I can answer that. Yes.
Mystic Michaela is Meghan’s psychic. I’ll refrain from any jokes or smart remarks. Meghan is having a get-together, and wants everything to be positive. She thinks psychics frighten people because they’re afraid what they’re hiding will be revealed, or they’re scared of the truth. Peggy arrives first, but isn’t interested in having her aura read. In her interview, she says her psychic is God. Michaela says she’s intuitive, and Peggy says she knows. Great start. I think the psychic is afraid of Peggy. This psychic stuff never goes well.
Tamra arrives next, followed by Shannon. Peggy is still upset about her cancer being questioned, but says this isn’t the time or place. In her interview, Shannon says it’s stupid, and she’s not defending herself, insisting that David didn’t grill Diko. Oh yes he did. Meghan invited Vicki, who had other plans, but Meghan thinks she’s scared. No doubt, but not of the psychic.
Vicki visits Kelly. She tells Kelly that she has a heart murmur that she didn’t know about, and she’s feeling weak. She’s going to surround herself with positive people, and not work so much.
Michaela reads auras. She says Shannon’s is positive, so we can assume she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. She tells Shannon that yellow people are attracted to spiritual things.
Kelly used to think psychics were fun, but now believes she should stay away from it. Vicki thinks it’s bullsh*t. Kelly asks Vicki about having hepatitis B, but Vicki says it was influenza B. Kelly knew there was a letter involved.
Chef David creates a catered dinner for Meghan. There’s a knock at the door. It’s Lydia. If Michaela is going to be Mystic, she wants to be Lovely Lydia. She doesn’t want to be around a psychic, but knows the evening is important to Meghan and wants to be supportive. She asks if they’d like to come on a little getaway. She thinks it would be fun to go to Iceland. They’re doing a review on Iceland for the magazine. Everyone is in. I would be too. I’d love to visit there, but I’d lose this bunch real quick once I got there. Peggy has never been on a girls’ trip before. Lydia wants to invite Vicki and Kelly. She has high hopes everyone can actually have a fun time. She calls Vicki, and invites her and Kelly along. She tells Vicki to put on her party pants. In her interview, Tamra says the last time she saw Vicki, it didn’t go well. We flash back to Tamra’s nasty self. It didn’t go well because Tamra is a bitch.
Kelly tells Vicki Iceland will be the jam. She won’t leave Vicki the way she was left alone in Ireland. She’s like a marine and never leaves a man behind. She promises that Vicki will like it.
Peggy is bothered by something. She says she texted Shannon, but Shannon ignored her. She asks if everything is okay. Shannon tells Peggy that she’s perplexed about what happened at the anniversary party. She talked to David, and he was just engaging in the conversation and was confused. She says he asked questions out of kindness, because he was trying to understand. For Diko to pull her aside when she had no knowledge of what went on is upsetting, and she doesn’t understand why she was brought into it. She asks what pot Peggy is trying to stir. Peggy should ask her to talk to Diko. Shannon says she didn’t hear what David said. Peggy asks if she trusts him, and if he’s ever lied to her before. D’oh! While Shannon is always all kinds of wrong, the first thing I’ll point out is that 1) she brought it up to David that she was confused, and 2) she’s doing the exact same thing she griped that Diko did.
Shannon tells Peggy don’t go there. Peggy says she just asked her a question; does she trust her husband. Shannon says she does. In her interview, Peggy says she obviously struck a nerve. Obviously, he doesn’t tell her everything, and she needs to take it down a few notches. Peggy asks if she’s done. Lydia tells Shannon not to mad dog Peggy, and to let her speak. Shannon wails that she’s being accused of something she didn’t do (I’m not sure what that is), and it’s her hot button issue. In her interview, Lydia says Shannon likes to fight, and it’s upsetting to be around. Lydia tells Shannon not to yell, and Shannon says she has the right to be upset. Meghan says they should just talk. She says maybe it’s rude, and none of her business, but why did Diko bring it up. Peggy says David inserted himself in the conversation. Meghan thinks it’s taking too long to explain. In other words, her attention span for this is done. Peggy wants to make sure she tells the whole story, and Shannon says she wasn’t there. Peggy say she was there when Diko was talking to Shannon, and she was shaking. Peggy says that she’s lucky she doesn’t need chemo right now.
Shannon jumps up, and runs to the bathroom. Tamra follows, because we’re fourteen. Shannon insists that if David involved himself it was only to help by offering doctor recommendations. Tamra asks if he did, and Shannon says probably, which means she has no idea. Lydia knocks on the door, and says she and Peggy are going. Tamra pretends to be confused, and says that she still doesn’t understand what David said. Shannon now insists that he recommended doctors to Diko. Tamra says she and Peggy should talk one-on-one.
Shannon swears she’s calm, and Tamra suggests to Peggy that they talk. The two of them go to another room, and Lydia pretends to bang her head on the table. Tamra asks for a knife to slit her wrists.
Shannon tells Peggy that she has a good husband. He didn’t grill or interrogate Diko. He wasn’t happy with Diko pulling her aside. Peggy asks if she’s play. Shannon says she has no intention to hurt her, and has shown nothing but care. She tells Shannon that she doesn’t want to get into it. In her interview, Peggy says it was like Shannon slapped her in the face with her yelling. She tells Shannon that it’s emotional, and Shannon says she understand, and has been nothing but there for her. Peggy tells us that she was lost, and needed support, but didn’t get it from this bunch. She says goodnight, and she and Lydia leave. Shannon is such an a-hole. She tells the others that she says didn’t do anything wrong.
Tamra looks for Shannon, who doesn’t want to talk to anyone – she’s done. Meghan says this is off the rails, and not in a good way. Shannon tells Tamra that she’s tired of being made to look like an a-hole, and Tamra tells her to quit acting like one. <snort!> Shannon whines that no one stuck up for her; it was her versus Peggy. Tamra says not true; she stuck up for her.
Peggy cries in the car. Lydia feels protective of her, since she invited her into this group of women, and she doesn’t like to see anyone hurting. Peggy wonders why Shannon is always yelling, and if she thinks it makes her point more right.
Shannon is tired of being painted as crazy, just because she wears her heart on her sleeve. In her interview, Tamra says Shannon is emotional about everything, and her life has spiraled. Even though she says she is, Tamra doesn’t think Shannon is over the affair. She thinks Shannon should talk to David. Shannon says she was accused of doing something evil and nasty. To her credit, Tamra says no one accused her of anything. She doesn’t need to get wound up. Meghan tells them if the baby wakes up, this will look like nothing.
Peggy tells Lydia that she can’t have a conversation with Shannon; she spins everything. Lydia says she always does, and she can’t handle that. Inside, Mystic Michaela says, omg. She tells Meghan that her friends are great. She seems like another idiot. Aura this.
Shannon visits Tamra. She sits down, and makes a remark about her weight breaking in the spot on the couch, and I say omg out loud. Tamra tells her about getting an invite to Sidney’s graduation. We flash back to Lydia praying for her. She tells Shannon that she was afraid she wouldn’t be invited, but gave it up to God, and he did it in His time. She says sometimes you have to go through sh*t to come out the other side. It breaks her heart to see Shannon this way. Shannon tells Tamra that she was absolutely humiliated last night. They remember that four years ago, they had a similar conversation in the same spot, and we flash back to Shannon crying about David. Shannon says she’s having issues with David, but isn’t looking for pity or playing the victim. She’s been thinking about the affair more. She thought she was over it because they were in a good place, but now wonders if she could ever say it was worth it because things are better. In her interview, Tamra says that Shannon being angry with David is coming out in other ways. Let’s just say it. Yeah, her weight, for one, even though she blames Vicki. We flash back to Shannon being an idiot. Tamra says she’s worried about Shannon, and in her interview, remembers how she lashed out when she had problems with Simon. She was miserable, and wanted everyone to know. Shannon says she can’t have the relationship be the focus of her happiness. She lost track of herself. In her interview, she says she’s devastated by the thought they’re in a place she believed they couldn’t go back to. Tamra says she’s crying all the time, and maybe she should take time away from David. Shannon thinks when she goes away, he realizes she holds the family together.
Everyone packs for the trip. Vicki asks Briana if there’s a place to whoop it up, and what the drink of choice is. Briana tells her she doesn’t know, and it’s vodka. Kelly asks her mom if it’s okay for her to bring a fur, and her mom says she can say it’s fake. Kelly jokes that she’s a member of PETA – People Eating Tasty Animals. Shannon gripes to David that she barely fits in anything, as he munches on chips. He asks if they have stores in Iceland, and she says they trade hides at the flea market. Lydia asks Dog if she should bring her party tiara, but he says she’s there to write a magazine article, not party. Peggy doesn’t know what to pack, and asks if Diko can fit in her suitcase. He gets in, telling her not to mess up his hair. She thinks it sounds like a great experience, but without Diko, she has a problem. Who will carry her luggage? She’s excited for the trip, but not to be with Shannon. She knows Shannon has an issue with her – she does with everyone – but she’s going to have fun.
Everyone meets at the airport. Meghan brings Baby Aspen and Bridget. On the plane, they toast to the trip.
Next time, Iceland! A trek up a mountain, Viking helmets, a waterfall, Shannon sees Vicki and Tamra being silly together, and fermented shark doesn’t go over too big.
The Real Housewives of Dallas
Mark asks Cary if he wants to hear about Mexico. She says she had fun, but Brandi and Stephanie weren’t supportive. He says enough is enough, and she tells him she skipped a part. LeeAnne said that he goes to bars and guys hit on him. Not exactly what she said, but kinda close. Mark doesn’t need these people to ruin them; he’s tired of it.
Brandi’s sister-in-law, Megan, shows her the space for the upcoming holiday party. This year, Brandi is having a white party. She wants them to feel like they’re in a winter wonderland. She says Kameron might have boundaries, but in Brandi Land, you just have a good time. D’Andra is the only one not coming, because she’ll be out of the country. Brandi doesn’t appreciate being called a liar. She and Cary fighting is awkward, but she didn’t want to exclude her. Stephanie feels like she’s in the middle of something she doesn’t want to be in the middle of.
D’Andra’s assistant thinks the new product will give the company a boost. They have a meeting with her mother about the product. In her interview, D’Andra says she has to convince her mother about the product, and reassure her that turning over the reigns of the company isn’t a mistake. She tells her mother about “snow algae,” an anti-aging product. Her mother tries a sample, and likes it. In her interview, D’Andra says her mother is all about anti-aging. You can bounce a Ping-Pong ball off of her face. The clinical trials saw results of 100%, and D’Andra gives her mother the research that’s been done. She expects it to cost around $100K, and to sell the product at $100. Her mother gives the okay, and tells her to make it a home run. D’Andra tells us that her mother rarely says yes, and she has to prove she’s right.
A nurse practitioner visits LeeAnne to give her a hangover cocktail so she can make Brandi’s party. Rich people problems. On the phone, she tells Brandi about Cary saying she couldn’t be friends with her or Stephanie because of their behavior on the boat. Brandi says Kameron called them trash, Cary called her a liar, and now doesn’t want to be friends with them. She wonders why Cary couldn’t say it to their faces. She deserves the truth, and Cary needs to stop hanging out with them if that’s how she feels. She wonders why Cary is coming to the party. LeeAnne says there needs to be a moment when they hold Cary’s feet to the fire. Since it’s LeeAnne, I’m not sure if she means literally or figuratively.
Kameron, traveling with her dog Louis Vuitton Wescott, says she’s a blonde alien visiting another planet – a dog food factory. Since Louis entered her life, she’s had an extreme love for anything dog. I can relate. She started BabyLou apparel, but didn’t make all that much. Now, it’s a big industry, and if she can get her sliver of the pie, Court could be working for her. She discussed her idea with a couple of guys to see if they can work together. She explains that she and Louis are tired of the typical brown dog food, and want to make everyone happy with beautiful color. No one else has done it, and the guys are in. I think this is a smart move. Even if people just buy it for a novelty, they’ll make millions. Kameron says they’ll disrupt dog food industry. One of the men suggests adding a diamond shape.
LeeAnne’s body is telling her peace out. She’s not feeling well, and tells the doctor her energy level is sinking. The doctor got her culture back, and explains that she has a flesh-eating bacterium that has caused necrosis, but once it’s stopped, it will all go away and the tissue will heal and close. He tells her it will take several weeks and it’s outpatient treatment. She wants to know why her, and he says sometimes bad things happen to good people. What a philosopher.
D’Andra’s connection with her husband is all about travel. He talks about the first camping trip they took, and they discuss this year’s trip to Croatia. I’m seriously jealous. Keatin calls, and D’Andra tells us since he left, he’s talked to Jeremy, but not her. On reflection, she thinks she might have been too hard on him. He’s working for Verizon and doing well. D’Andra apologizes for trying to drive him down her lane when he needs to be in his own. In her interview, she says she’s her desires for him might not be the right ones. Keatin knows she did it out of love. She says she’s going to stop judging, and let Keatin do Keatin, not make Keatin do D’Andra. Then she says, wait, that sounds wrong.
It’s the day of the Brandi Land party. Cary gets ready. Mark is going to a surgical dinner (which sounds creepy), and letting her do her thing. He doesn’t want to be around the viciousness, and wonders why she’s going. She says it’s the way the girls are, and she RSVP’d. She’s a woman of her word. She’s going with Kameron, and Mark points out that Kameron is taller then he is.
The party commences. A big sign says the Brandi Land White Party. Hey, not everyone is dressed in white. Throw them out! Brandi tells Stephanie what Cary said about not being friends with them. Stephanie feels like they had a good relationship, but Brandi thinks LeeAnne has no reason to lie. Stephanie suggests looking at it with “smart glasses.” Brandi tells her sometimes LeeAnne can be wrong, but she’s honest. Cary has been talking behind their backs. In her interview, Stephanie thinks that LeeAnne may be putting a wedge between Brandi and Cary.
Stephanie doesn’t want to pick sides, but wants to talk to Cary. She knows Brandi is capable of cutting someone out of her life. Brandi doesn’t want to be lied about, and says she’s been protecting Cary. She was Mark’s nurse and nanny when Mark was married, and Cary is all about looking out for herself. In her interview, she says that if something like that went on in her family, the bitch would have problems.
LeeAnne and friend Tiffany arrive. LeeAnne says she looks good in white. People don’t see her horns as much. D’Andra is on a computer screen, and it rolls around the party, like what Sheldon did in that episode of The Big Bang Theory. She can control the movement from where she is, and she chases LeeAnne. LeeAnne tells her to take her robot ass to bed.
When Cary arrives, she doesn’t even say hello, but goes straight to the bar. She tells Kameron she knows what she said in Mexico is going to come back to haunt her. Kameron looks at her plastic glass, and wonders why they can’t have real ones. She says she feels like she’s at a frat party. Cary tells her to drink more, and she’ll really feel like that. Kameron doesn’t think Cary is being treated fairly, and has her back.
LeeAnne tells the girls about being on antibiotics because of her diagnosis. Kameron brings Brandi a gift, explaining to us that Southern ladies who are invited to a beautiful even always bring something. It’s a pack of batteries. Hahahaha! Okay, maybe she does have a sense of humor. Brandi appreciates the thought, but says it’s for the wrong kind of sex toy. LeeAnne says now she knows what to get her for Christmas. Brandi tells LeeAnne not to let Cary know what’s wrong with her or she’ll make fun. Cary knows they’re talking about her, and says she’s bored. Brandi tells her what LeeAnne said, and LeeAnne actually has notecards. That’s a great idea to bring notes to an argument. I wish I’d thought of that. Brandi suggests they go downstairs. In her interview, Kameron says it’s a faux pas to leave your own party to fight with a friend. Cary asks where her Chanel coat is, and I wonder why she had to specify the designer. Not too ostentatious.
Brandi asks what exactly made Cary say what she did. Cary says she’s been a good friend, and they were antagonizing Kameron. Kameron tells them that there was a discussion about crossing boundaries, and they crossed hers. When she got off the boat, she wanted nothing to do with them. Cary says she knows LeeAnne isn’t her biggest fan, but LeeAnne says that has nothing to do with it. Cary needs to own her sh*t. Cary now insists not only did she not say Brandi’s doctor killed people, she’d told her that he was perfect. LeeAnne mentions Cary saying her stepson would be embarrassed about the sex toy, when she’s always naked. Cary says her body is a temple, and Brandi thinks she’s mesmerized by her own bullsh*t. Stephanie brings up Kameron calling them trash, and tells Cary that she would never have let anyone call her that. Cary says she’s sorry Stephanie feels that way, but she cares and loves them, even if they don’t love her. It’s cool. She could never be friends with LeeAnne though. LeeAnne tells her she’s fake AF. Cary won’t listen to her, so LeeAnne smashes a glass, in true LeeAnne fashion, and tells her that she’d better be careful. Kameron says that’s why Brandi has plastic glasses.
In her interview, Stephanie says LeeAnne will do anything for attention. Brandi says she’s done nothing but protect Cary, and she knows she was Mark’s nanny. LeeAnne makes a soap opera face. Brandi says if Cary is going to assassinate her character, she’s doing the same. In her interview, LeeAnne says Cary has been chipping away at Brandi’s character; why shouldn’t she unleash the truth? Cary says she was Mark’s nurse and she watched the kids; she loved them like her own. We flash back to Cary weeping about LeeAnne accusing her of being a homewrecker at the reunion, and saying she would never go out with a married man. In her interview, LeeAnne says the truth shall set her free, and her shackles just fell off. LeeAnne doesn’t know how to move forward from this, and Cary is outta there. She feels like she tried. Kameron says they came together, so she’s leaving too. Stephanie thinks this isn’t the Brandi they know and love. She’s more like LeeAnne.
Next time, D’Andra needs to launch a product in two weeks that won’t be ready for a month, Stephanie confronts Cary, there’s a SparkleDog party, and Mark confronts LeeAnne.
Lookee what I found…
