Take a look at our reality show recaps for a quick catch-up on the most recent episodes of Real Housewives and Khloe & Lamar.
Real Housewives of Orange County
By Karina Sanchez
Vicki, Tamra and Peggy head off on a mini wine tour, where everything is fine and dandy until Peggy continues to question Vicki about Donn. At one point, Vicki got all choked up and said “I’m fine. I’m fine. Everything’s perfect!” Well, obviously everything is not perfect. When Donn tries to help Vicki prepare dinner, she seems totally annoyed by his eagerness to help. It’s quite evident that their relationship is going downhill, and fast.
Alexis and Peggy continue to butt heads, and Alexis is constantly trying to one-up Peggy. When recounting an old conversation, Peggy said that Micah tried to give a suggestion on a Lamborghini because he’s owned one before. Alexis responds with “well, Jim’s had four Maseratis.” Look for this competitiveness to spill into next week’s episode, as well.
Slade and Gretchen jet off to San Antonio, Texas, where Gretchen is scheduled for a TV appearance to promote her handbags and makeup. Slade must go because he is her manager, after all. But before they leave, Slade’s mom stops by for a visit. She, apparently, is as uninformed about Slade’s job as the rest of America. For those of you who don’t know, he’s now a consultant, and not just for Gretchen Beautè, but for other clients, too.
Previews for next week look juicy. Simon gets thrown in jail after Tamra claims he abused her. And afterwards, Jeana tells Tamra “I don’t believe you’ve had an abusive relationship [with Simon].”
Khloe & Lamar
By Arundel Bell
This week on Khloe and Lamar, the two have come up with a unisex scent that bonds. From the beginning, Khloe reveals her fears about starting a business venture with her husband, Lamar, because she knows how her other businesses are with her sisters. Lamar acts very disinterested in the whole process. A bunch of little fights about the details of the fragrance hurt Khloe so much that she begins to cry, which then leads to a call to Kris Jenner. Luckily, Kris is actually a voice of reason; all couples disagree. This then makes Lamar and Khloe realize that arguing and making up is what people do.
Khloe comes up with a solution for the fragrance. She ties him up and makes him smell her chest until he picks a perfume. It works, naturally. By the end of Khloe and Lamar, they’re launching their new product, which they call “Unbreakable,” named after their strong bond, friendship and family.
Also on this week’s episode, Malika is set up on a date with one of Lamar’s teammates, Rasual Butler. They go out, but she invites Rob on a double date at The Lobster restaurant. Shortly after, Rasual Butler breaks up with Malika, Rob tells Malika he’s sorry about their break-up. But Rob was wearing the scent of jealously and it was obvious. He goes back to flirting.
“You think I’m going to hit it and quit it with you,” he says. He says it won’t be like that. This leads to them hooking up. Lamar and Khloe find out by sneaking into Rob’s room, where they’re asleep and not quite clothed.
Their strong bond, friendship and family are put to a test this week, but all in all the crew is still “unbreakable.”
