Sometimes we just can’t get enough drama and sassiness, so to satisfy our cravings, we must watch it and write about it. Allow us to offer you these informative reality show recaps:
Real Housewives of Orange County
By Karina Sanchez
Peggy and Micah were off to Vegas to celebrate Micah’s birthday. Invites were extended to Tamra and Eddie, not Alexis and Jim. After trash-talking Alexis, Peggy confided that she could see herself and Micah becoming new BFFs with Tamra and her man. Struggling to think of the perfect birthday present, Peggy decides on something Micah can’t just go out and buy for himself – a picture book of her clad in sexy lingerie.
Alexis was busy with her dress premiere luncheon. Even though the luncheon was to take place at a French brasserie, she opted for croissant sandwiches instead of more authentic French cuisine. Complaints of dresses being too short or too tight for everyday women were expressed by Tamra and Peggy — you know, typical, everyday women themselves. All of the ladies attended the luncheon, minus Vicki.
Vicki was rushed to the hospital after she had been hemorrhaging. Gretchen thought that she may have been making up the whole incident just to get out of going to Alexis’s dress premiere luncheon. Tamra defended her friend by showing Gretchen proof that Vicki was in the hospital: Vicki’s picture texts to Tamra in a hospital gown and with a hospital bracelet on. See, proof!
Meanwhile, Gretchen’s illness seemed to be her love for Slade. The Sladester’s contracts are all ending soon, and that means he’ll be even more broke than he is now. That doesn’t sit well with Gretchen, who wants him to get his finances in order and get his child support issues settled before they even think about having a child together. “I am in love, but I’m not stupid,” she said.
Next week is the show’s explosive season finale, and I’ve already reserved my ringside seats.
Khloe & Lamar
By Arundel Bell
On the latest episode of Khloe & Lamar, Malika realizes on a trip that her relationship with Rob is not what she thought. Rob sees it as a “friends with benefits” arrangement. Malika thinks it is more. After Khloe confronted her about finding Rob and Malika in bed together, Malika acknowledges their hookup, but wonders to herself where they go from there. Then Rob invites Malika to accompany him to San Diego for an appearance. Malika assumes he wants to spend time with her, but she is wrong. Malika really realizes it when they are at the club appearance and Rob’s friend, Rosa, shows up in a red dress tighter than anything. Rosa has one thing on her mind: to get with Rob. Malika figures it out, finally, and leaves the club and gets her own room. Malika calls her sister (that we met last episode), who reminds her that the relationship has no “official capacity.” She is aware of it, but does not really get why he invited her to San Diego. Later in Rob’s room, Rosa soaks in a tub with Rob, where they get hot and heavy and end up in bed. TOOOOOO HOTTTTT!
On the drive home from San Diego, Malika asks a hungover Rob if he spent the night with Rosa. Rob tells her it’s none of her business. Instead of dealing with it or saying something to Rob, Malika tells Khloe. This forces a confrontation in the kitchen between the three of them. Malika curses him out and leaves. Khloe then tells her brother to not go anywhere near Malika. This is the old saying: “can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Then Malika decides to meet Rob for lunch to see what he has to say. He has nothing really to say, but that he is sorry and feels bad about his treatment of her. At lunch, Malika gives Rob an ultimatum. They’re all the way or nothing. Rob makes some jokes, but gives no answer to the ultimatum. His life is one big joke of no responsibilities.
Also, Lamar comes to a realization that Khloe was right about Jamie. It is not easy, but Jamie’s actions are not acceptable to Lamar when it comes to business. Jamie really messes things up when Lamar gets a call from his very mad business manager. His business manager tells him Jamie didn’t show up for an important business meeting with an investor for Lamar’s merchandising company, Rich Soil. When they find this out, it’s all Khloe can do to say “told you so.” Lamar confronts Jamie, who lies and tells Lamar that he rescheduled the meeting. Really Jamie didn’t make it back from Las Vegas in time. To catch Jamie in a lie, Lamar decides to attend the postponed meeting. Unaware that Lamar is there, Jamie first arrives late. Secondly, he “forgets” the designs of their product. The meeting is a waste of time for all the parties involved and the investor leaves. Lamar feels like he needs to fire him from Rich Soil. When Lamar tried to contact him, Jamie doesn’t return Lamar’s calls for a few days. Lamar goes to check up on him at their loft where he finds Jamie drunk and depressed. Lamar decides to stay the night with him to help get him out of his funk. They have a heart to heart about their personal struggles in life. But nothing really is resolved.
It’s an episode full of painful realizations, forcing confrontations between everybody. There is one more episode left, so don’t forget to tune in.
