Y’all, I forgot how much I missed the Ba-Ba-Doo theme song! As they always do, the episode started with the Charmers doing their morning things. Austen ran ran along a river (???) with his hair floppin’ in the wind. Landon rolled out of bed. Thomas was already at the office complaining about bills – see the blue bloods are just like us blue collar folks. What were those lime green glasses with dinosaur spots? They can be seen from outer space.
Cameran & Chelsea met up at the gym to workout their skinny fat problems. For one day in my life, I’d like to have skinny fat problems. We do have proof that Cam does indeed live off gas station food, but somehow I think it’s more like once or twice during filming to “keep it real”. Apparently Shep & Chelsea had a “PG” sleepover. I’m not sure I buy that. They are just havin’ fun y’all.
Craig & Landon meet up for a charcuterie plate…and to bitch about Shep. Craig did mention that he & Naomie are working on a “charity thing”. Landon advised us all that philanthropy is the way to be a socialite…like she knows. The fact that Craig consistently called a Step & Repeat a Step & Release, shows that he has a long way to go. #stepandrelease
Shep is at home packing for a trip for the weekend, & Naomie stopped by to pick up a silent auction item. Naomie talked about Craig not knowing if a tsunami hit Haiti or an earthquake. But, in the next breath told Shep not to talk badly about him…it was a little strange. However, it was a constructive argument. Shep is tough on his friends.
Life advice: if you can’t be honest in a friendship, then it’s a one-sided friendship (to your disadvantage) & you need to move on.
You guys, after texting with Mama J about who on this show has jobs, I realized that Craig & Landon (and Kathryn, but where is she?) are the only ones without jobs. Yet, they complain about my Sheppy-Poo not working. Let’s make a list, shall we?
Cameran – Realtor
Thomas – Realty Business Owner
Whitney – Producer
Austen – Beer Guy
Shep – Bar Owner
Kathryn – Jewelry Maker?
Craig – Gardener? Investor in Gentry Bourbon?
gold digger Blogger
Moving on to Miss Patricia, she is heading out of town. “You can never be over-educated or over-dressed.” Whitney is dog sitting as Michael in on a much deserved vacay.
Meanwhile, Kathryn met with a potential modeling agency. Why didn’t she wear makeup? Kathryn, my friend, we both suffer from blonde eyelashes – NEVER leave home without mascara. I love that Kathryn is self-reflective & openly shares her struggles with us. This makes me love her even more. #TeamKathryn
I feel like I say this every week, but Thomas speaking French to himself gives me the heebie-jeebies. He is so disgusting. Thomas thinks that if he had pursued an older woman, his life would be different. DUH. But, Thomas you don’t look at age appropriate women; quite frankly age appropriate women wouldn’t give him the time of day.
Landon swung by Thomas’ house for yet another charity event – a polo match. Landon has always been annoying, but never have I thought she sounded more like a robot. Does she read cue cards? Is she trying to remember her script?
Naomie has realized that #NewCraig is regressing back into #OldCraig. He was such an ass this episode. Does he still work for Gentry Bourbon? Craig says that he reasons any worry out of his brain, thus he doesn’t get stressed. Craig, dear, you have no problems as you have no responsibilities. Craig then accused Shep of being an abusive husband; was he jealous that Naomie & Shep can have rational conversations?
Moving along, Austen, Thomas, Shep, & the most glorious mullet meet up for a Boys Night Out.
We found out that Thomas & Shep, who are cousins, have a lot of cross pollination when it comes to women. These guys are animals talking about their conquests.
Shep & Austen make a good wing man duo, but this is all too weird – these are girls, not women. The worst part was that these same girls moved on to Thomas once Shep left. Even Whitney & Austen were skeeved out. Let me remind you that most of this “bar trash” were celebrating a 21st birthday.
Finally, we reach the night of the big silent auction. Mr. Craig was so obnoxious; however, they were both super unprofessional during setup at the event. “F you, no F you!” Now, when Naomie speaks French = not gross. Craig, learn to delegate. Naomie, you mean well, but Craig sees it as nagging.
In the only smart move Thomas has ever made regarding a woman, he opted not to attend the silent auction in case Kathryn was there. He didn’t want to cause a scene.
What the hell was that belly dancing gold chain in Landon’s hair? Chelsea looked hot in that green dress. It’s episode 3, & we’ve now seen Bam twice. That’s two too many.
We end the episode with Austen hitting on Chelsea & getting her number.

What did y’all think of this episode? I think this season has been a slow build so far, which means it’s going to get real good, real soon.
RHONY Recap will be up on Wednesday night. I’ll also be posting a new playlist, my first one since Christmas, later this week.
