So last week, life happened and while I watched Real Housewives of Dallas, I couldn’t finish the blog post write-up, so I decided to just do two weeks of drama in this one post. I am going to just skip to the real nitty gritty because there was so much of it, that I once again can’t be bothered discussing pink dog food and mother-daughter business relationships.
Cary and Stephanie meet up. Cary says in confessional that she feels like the outcast nobody likes now. Stephanie is voicing concern that maybe their friendship isn’t what she thought it was. She asks Cary to be honest and tell her whether or not she said she would never be friends with Brandi or Stephanie. Cary admits she said that because she has been so hurt by Brandi lying about Cary’s comments about her plastic surgeon. Stephanie says she definitely disagrees with the way Brandi brought up Cary having been Mark’s nanny during the last episode. Cary advises Stephanie to be true to herself and stop letting Brandi change who she is.
Brandi went to see LeeAnne to see how her flesh eating bacteria is doing. They discuss Cary, of course. Brandi says she can’t be friends with Cary if she is continually going to call her a liar. LeeAnne swears Cary is just manipulating both Stephanie and Brandi. LeeAnne advises Brandi to tell Stephanie that their friendship will change if she continues to stay close to Cary.
Stephanie and Travis are chatting in the kitchen while she cooks. They are pleased with how Cruz is doing with his school and tutors. We learn that Travis dealt with Dyslexia as a child and didn’t have friends. He couldn’t read until his second time in third grade. I love their relationship. He asks her if she turned the oven on and she realizes she hadn’t. He says “It’s tough to do.” And I am dying with laughter.
We find out Cary and Mark are the only ones in the group not invited to LeeAnne’s engagement party. LeeAnne wants to talk to Mark about it instead of Cary, hoping for a different perspective. She wants to try to invite them because her fiance Rich really likes them. She pulls him aside to discuss it. He says “I feel like you’re trying to convince me that my wife is a liar.” He also asks her about calling his plastic surgery practice a chop shop, which she of course denies.
Brandi and Cary discuss the whole Cary-as-the-nanny thing. She tells Brandi how wrong it is to judge her for having that job. Brandi agrees that she was out of line to say that.
And Cary calls it…the common denominator in all this drama is LeeAnne.
This week, the finale…
LeeAnne and her mother do not have a good relationship. Let’s all act surprised. It is so hard for a psycho to have functional connections. Just saying. LeeAnne tells her mother she wants to go to therapy together. In therapy, her mother reveals that she is scared of LeeAnne hurting her if she lets her walls down. When LeeAnne was a little girl, her mother would drop her off at her grandparents’ house and she would beg her not to go. Her biological father walked out on them and she was left as a single mother at 19 years go. LeeAnne didn’t feel like anybody wanted her. Okay… still doesn’t explain why you’re so terrible to everyone.
Cary, Stephanie, and Brandi meet up for lunch. They order tequila shots and margaritas cause these ladies are my spirit animals. Brandi apologizes for saying what she did last week about Cary being the nanny. Cary and Stephanie both say that feel like that is so out of character for Brandi to say things that way. It is completely coming to the surface that LeeAnne manipulates Brandi, creating problems in her friendships.
It is Cary and Mark’s seventh anniversary and she got an $8,000 Hermes wallet and a $12,000 Birkin bag. I stress out when I buy a bag over $50. Different worlds.
LeeAnne’s engagement party falls on she and Rich’s 8-year anniversary. The party is carnival theme and gorgeous. It’s my favorite colors of black, white and gold. All the gals show up, with Cary and Stephanie really just being there to support Rich, whom they love. LeeAnne tells Brandi if she crosses her, she will slit her throat. I mean, who the fuck says shit like that?! Yes, crazy people.
Brandi said she will go to LeeAnne’s engagement brunch, because she RSVPed so it’s the right thing to do out of respect for D’Andra, who is hosting. They sit down and toast LeeAnne, then start chatting about getting along through all the wedding festivities. LeeAnne likes to play victim, as if she is the only one who gets hurt in the relationship with Cary. Brandi finally calls out LeeAnne, telling her that she lies and is constantly dishonest. Brandi quotes things that LeeAnne has said and LeeAnne denies it, as we watch clips roll by where she was recorded saying exactly those things. Holy fuck, Brandi flew off the handle at LeeAnne, which was absolutely deserved. I am just over here like “YES!” Because I can tell you this…whether you mean it or not, when you threaten to slit my throat, I have nothing to do with you. Toxic people are a big NOPE for me.
Now, I understand that reality shows are edited to heighten the drama, but you can’t deny saying something when it is recorded. Let’s just own shit we say. Everyone speaks out of anger and emotion, but you have to admit that and not just fucking lie all the damn time.
The reunion part one for next week looks explosive and I can’t wait!
