RHOD Reunion Recap: Heart On The Floor
After her dramatic walk off last week, LeeAnne Locken gathered her courage and probably considered her pay check and got her booty back on that green reunion couch. Mark and Cary had to own up to their marriage issues and blamed it on the producers only showing the bad moments. That’s probably true but I still smell a divorce on the horizon so that Mark can throw down with his Roundup buddies. I just feel sorry for his daughter Zuri who is gonna have to watch this when she’s older and see that her dad really didn’t give a shit about her.
When the group was done discussing Mark and Cary’s marriage, Andy rolled the package of Cary talking about Rich’s package and all the other gossip surrounding the husbands of the show. It must have been awkward watching it in front of Mark. LeeAnne did apologise for her Roundup comment but wouldn’t give up the shady source that divulged the information to her. While LeeAnne was on her apology tour, she also said sorry for saying that Mark was a chop shop doctor because she was only trying to hurt Cary after she heard that she called her doctor a “vagina doctor” when she actually called him an OGBYN. HA! What’s the difference, it’ s just the professional name?
Brandi claimed that she wasn’t trying to stir the pot which is a barrel of bullshit. Come on, that’s how she kept her spot on the show. The topic of Rich’s package also popped up (see what I did there) and Cary spilled the tea that she did apologise personally to him and said that she only said it because she was hurt by LeeAnne’s comments. Are you seeing a pattern here? Andy Cohen certainly did and identified that both LeeAnne and Cary are hurting each other and then reacting. LeeAnne also said she’s sick of acting like an idiot and then watching it back. Does that mean she’s done with the show? Let’s say a little prayer that this carny never leaves.
The next clip that rolled was Brandi and Cary’s dramatic relationship this season. Right out of the gate Mark maintained that he never had an affair with Cary and then he started saying that he has known her for 18 years, she’s worked for him for 15 and they’ve been married for 8. Is this a Housewives reunion or a maths class? The nanny drama got brought up and Brandi confessed that Mark’s grown daughter had told her that Cary used to babysit her and she interpreted it as them having an affair, she cried and apologised but I don’t feel that Brandi had to own up to the two faced flip flopping that she’s done this season. Of course LeeAnne Locken felt vindicated that there was more evidence to verify her claims that they had an affair. Cary forgave Brandi but of course the trust is gone.
The final part of the reunion was filled with LeeAnne and Brandi’s new found friendship this season. Brandi said after watching LeeAnne’s behaviour that she realised that she didn’t want to be around negative energy but Kameron reminded her that she is negative energy. Now that is a read, I am loving Kameron’s little comments at this reunion. D’Andra tried to make the other couch realise that LeeAnne isn’t actually going to kill them and that she is joking and then the Brandi opened her stupid red head mouth and said that all D’Andra does is make excuses for LeeAnne. Little Miss Redmond obviously doesn’t watch the show because D’Andra calls LeeAnne out all the time for her bad behaviour. That really got me fired up, and I’m predicting a Brandi and D’Andra beef in season 3. D’Andra shared that she isn’t close with Brandi and had the idea that maybe Stephanie should discipline her friend instead of enabling her, like she does with LeeAnne.
My favourite part of this entire reunion was when Brandi called LeeAnne a liar and she clapped back by telling her that she had 3 fingers pointing right back. Now that is a READ hunni. Cary and Steph finally had to own up about blaming all of Brandi’s bad behavior on LeeAnne which they easier explained away. By the way, Stephanie’s legs are T-A-N at this reunion. Andy asked LeeAnne about her wedding and she spilled the tea that she hasn’t even thought of the guest list and then she started sprouting off bible versus which hinted at some kind of possibility with the girls. When the show comes back I can guarantee that next season will be all about LeeAnne’s wedding and I think there is a pretty good chance that the producers are gonna make her invite Tweddle Dee, Tweedle Dum and Little Red Riding Hood to her wedding. After LeeAnne suggested that there may be hope, Brandi stated that she doesn’t want to be her friend because she doesn’t think you can change from being that way when your 50 years old. Then LeeAnne got super dramatic and said that it felt like her heart was on the loor, being stepped on and bleeding out which just sounded painful. I didn’t realise she cared that much about Brandi but Miss Locken is a fighter and she’s gonna keep trying to be a better person. Good on you LeeAnne!
After a lengthy reunion, Andy centred the girls and made them end with a tradition that the New York ladies started - their rose and thornes. In a quick roundup: Stephanie’s rose was her relationship with Brandi and her thorn was seeing the destruction in the group - I assume she’s talking about Brandi bringing up the nanny? Kameron’s thorn was new friends and her thorn was basically being with Brandi. D’Andra’s thorn was her relationship with her mom and her thorn was seeing it on TV. Cary’s rose was her husband and her thorn was all the rumours - about her husband. Of course LeeAnne in all her extra-ness couldn’t give a straight answer because of ALL her drama but after a while Andy narrowed her rose down to her engagement and her thorn was herself. Aw, I love you diva! Brandi’s thorn was hurting the Deubers and her rose was Stephanie, and then she got a rose from behind the couch and gave it to her like they were on the Bachelor. How did she know they were doing rose and thorns? I smell a snake.
Because D’Andra is the voice of reason and potentially the only person with any sense, Andy enlisted her to give a closing thought. Miss Simmons determined that everyone needs to walk away, let the dust settle and see how they feel. With that advice, I can tell that season 3 is gonna be good! I LOVED this season of Dallas so much and they are expected to start filming in the new year. Casting has already started and you can check out our exclusive tea on a potential new comer.
