Once again, I thought this episode was a bit dull overall…yet, I still religiously watch. Not sure what I’ll do next week when the Bachelor starts back up because I will be recapping that as well. However, I have a few thoughts on last night’s show.
First things first, two words: Tea Towels. The tea towel wedding invitation is so bizarre to me. I don’t know about you, but once I add the wedding details to my calendar the invite goes straight into the recycle bin. These towels would be a total nuisance to me as I would feel guilty trashing it, but I don’t want to keep it either. This keepsake invite theory was convoluted at best. Also, why does Katie’s grandma know anything about Lala & her Range Rover? Why do her mom & grandma care?
Stassi & Kristen arrive to help fold the towels. Talk quickly turns to Scheana’s perceived betrayal… Stassi says that if Scheana bails on her birthday in Montauk, then that is not good bridesmaid behavior & must be excluded from the bridal party. This would make most people happy, but would devastate Scheana. Since when does Stassi get to decide who the bridesmaids are? Is she getting married? Oh, that’s right, Stassi & Patrick are once again on the outs for the 14th billion time.
Jax apparently has man-boobs from his Roid Rage days & has to have a mastectomy (???). I think Jax is single-handedly responsible for the nice lifestyle I’m sure his plastic surgeon lives. Luckily, Brittany is there to go about her normal routine of waiting on him hand & foot. The Toms show up bearing gifts – a Hooters shirt & sports bra. Most days I can’t stand Jax Taylor, but I do love the bromance with the Toms – at least when he’s not sleeping with one of their girlfriends.
Side note: I really do not understand Jax’s hatred for Lala. If anything, he did her wrong by calling her a liar when she was telling the truth last season. I don’t think Jax is so loyal that he’d be offended over the way she treats Katie. Just sayin’…
Back to Katie… She delivers LVP’s new Porsche to her. Lisa can’t seem to help herself & tells Katie that Stassi is a bad influence on her, which is true. Katie had the gall to tell LVP that she has offended her. Some people can’t handle the truth…
Meanwhile at Stassi’s un-air conditioned apratment, her mom & brother show up to complain about the heat. Nikolai gave Stassi great advice, “You are not the boss of everyone, so butt out.” Nailed it.
James Kennedy has predictably gotten nowhere in the 5 seconds its been since he got fired, so he pleads with Lisa for his job back. Of course his delivery was all wrong; he actually criticized Lisa for still employing Jax. Now, we’ve all thought this as well, but Lisa loves Jax. LVP basically tells James to GTFO & to think about a new career path.
The episode ends with all of Ariana’s birthday party crew at the airport waiting for Lala. Shockingly, Schwartz was allowed to go to Sonoma instead of Montauk.
