We’ve been in this pandemic for about a year and a half – that’s a year longer than the time it took to grow the damn “layers” I’m trying to DIY on my hair, six months longer than it took to grow the damn “layers” I’m trying to tinker with on my hair. ‘it took to cut all of my heat damaged curls, and four months since the New York Knicks made their first post-season NBA appearance since 2013. I think it’s safe to say we’ve all been through a fair number of hills and valleys and for the most part just trying to keep our heads straight from one Zoom call to the next.
This has to be the only reason I can understand why Dorothy “Dot” Dillard (is that her last name? Let’s go for now) is on our 4K displays sporting a crochet setup with a wider part. than the Potomac River. Listen, the panorama has led many of us black girls to become loyal YouTube skin and hair care college students; I have the Kanekalon bags in my closet as proof of my semesters of study. For my life, however, I can’t understand the fact that Mama Dot jumped out of bed, turned on her swag, looked at herself in the mirror, saw those traces and didn’t think she needed to. ‘make adjustments to it before being an appearance in his daughter’s music video.
The reality, however, doesn’t seem to be the plane Dot likes to operate in. After all is said and done with the clip, the Bassett family pulls out of the parking lot to return to their Potomac house so Chris can take off. her apron and Candiace can debrief with Dot. She talks with her daughter about the gossip going on in the background, doing a worse job than Lisa Rinna on RHOBH to feign memory loss in a situation it has completely caused. It’s a pretty nasty tactic that she employs here; instead of just being clear about her apparent issues with Chris (unless the edition left it on the chopping block), she uses people she knows Candiace has issues with or wouldn’t dare to face as proxies to. instead, implying that their current concerns are valid. The only ones who opted out of the fray were Karen, Wendy and Askale; the rest got completely hooked for various reasons. This is the ultimate form of passive aggression – and I know Candiace has already revealed that it hurts her and Chris to see this on WWHL – but it allows her to go out of her way and dismiss it. blame it on people with whom she already has latent tensions, instead of addressing the gargantuan red flag that she continues to ignore. “Our contract is our marriage certificate and our prenuptial agreement” is what so many other couples have said before things got out of hand. Sure, you hope for the best, but if all ultimately fails you would hate for unpaid work to be valued and bad negotiations to take place because you all decided that love conquers all. Suddenly he’s arguing that his time at links was for business negotiations, and you’re throwing yourself dirty tricks on page six. I think it’s pretty obvious that I’m far from the biggest fan of Ashley’s marital status, but Candiace using her as the only bar for an easy, unsolicited criticism or jab says a lot about his insecurities. Either way, she the album is out now, so go ahead and give it some streams if you’re an R&B fan.
Speaking of operating in frenzy, Robyn and Gizelle decide to throw a launch party for their podcast, and instead of renting a small venue like any sane person would, they decide to pitch a tent in front of their construction area. that she calls a house and invites women to a safety hazard with alcohol. There were so many reasons why this shouldn’t have happened: (1) Gizelle doesn’t want people she’s uncomfortable to come in and out of her house, and Robyn, for once, has the good sense to walk her home from relegating them to doing a squat on top of a loose beam and putting her on trial; (2) its steep, narrow driveway only allows cars to pass in single file, which becomes a problem later in the party; (3) she always tries to pass city inspections in the midst of these ridiculous drinking games. Of course, Robyn’s house is not an option as it is no closer to his dream house than Gizelle, which begs the question: what places these two women at the top of the pecking order? of this whole other than the color of skin and their will to support each other? the other at any time?
Either way, in the spirit of their podcast’s name, they ask a series of Reasonably Shady questions, which means they press their guests’ buttons and are irrationally offended when their guests push them away, in especially Wendy. It seems that at this point they are looking to keep an existing tension with Wendy. The assertion regarding her distaste for Gizelle’s house is as important as Karen’s commitment to Gizelle’s death wish on Ray – in fact, that never even happened – and the commitment to enlighten her. on the use of the phrase “hateful” when there is a whole lot to do with how Mia needed to approach a text message conversation is overkill. Wendy isn’t the only one confused; she’s just the only one vocalizing it. Karen probably would have done that too, but the second shot of the vaccine seemingly too insane her to see from the top down, and the directors get right down to work to give us the full effects to crack that, from the buzzing fly fisheye lens; you would have thought that Karen lives Fear and loathing in the Potomac.
Nonetheless, despite the progress made in the last episode, we end up where we started with Wendy and the team. She highlights hypocrisies and, to her credit, refuses to back down from her positions, letting them call her still, impossible and disrespectful. Meanwhile, Mia and Candiace have a full argument over Mia’s gossip in the clip. Candiace immediately defuses the second Gizelle admits she also thought the video was low budget and was interested in the finances around Chris as well. As much barking as Candiace likes to portray it, she is just as aware of the dynamics of power as a whole; she thinks she has the advantage over Mia but doesn’t want to be left out of the inner circle. It’s a tightrope that she will only be able to walk for so long because the green-eyed bandits are only true to themselves; if she continues to rely on them, however, any aggression she continues to inflict on Ashley and Mia – especially regarding their behavior this season – will look childish given that she could easily be directed against the other two.
Next week, the couples reunite on the East Coast, G finally lets go, for better or for worse, and tensions between Candiace and Mia continue to boil over. To all then !
â¢ I’ll get rid of it now: candlelight drama is a failure for me, and I’m hardly going to spend time on it in my recaps, unless you all convince me otherwise. I know how product development works, and Karen is more advanced, and that’s it. What’s next, the wine label drama? It’s a big market; this is a fictitious conflict.
â¢ I find it particularly interesting that whenever Candiace is called out for the insensitivity of her insults, she finds a way to justify it. I think it’s a fair rebuttal that other women in the franchise don’t always get the same level of contempt, but that’s not always true; Kenya Moore is criticized for saying nasty things, as is NeNe Leakes. Phaedra has gotten into trouble on several occasions because she has let herself go too far with her readings. They may become a social media tradition down the line, but they are harshly held in real time. Either way, with Mia pointing out that treating another ho wife like an insult comes from a place of insecurity shouldn’t have bothered her that much.
â¢ Something about Gizelle demanding respect in her own house when she literally invited a bunch of them to her outdoor construction area so she could curse them over finger food makes me squint in front of me. absurdity.
â¢ If Robyn comes from a Karen’s drunken voicemail messages and posts them on the interwebs, this might be the biggest value she’s added to the series throughout its six seasons.
â¢ Michael, a glitch in the matrix, continues to honor us with his absence.
