Andrea Canning took the reigns once again for the final installment of this season’s Sister Wives Tell All. As one would expect, there was a lot of focus on Meri and Kody Brown’s flailing relationship as well as Mariah’s recent announcement. To be fair, it was one of the more honest tell alls from this crew, but is that really saying much? As always, the older Brown children (and Christine’s newfound euphoria) made the rest of the gang much more bearable.
Kody and Meri discuss the pitfalls in their relationship and how Meri had told Kody to quit coming around her house. However, she still wanted him to be available to help her with household chores (that wet bar isn’t going to stock itself!) and engage in small talk. Andrea questions whether Meri banished Kody with the hopes that he would fight for her, but Kody counters that for months she would tell Kody to leave when he’d come around. Andrea attempts to remind them both of why they fell in love in the first place. Meri found Kody to be handsome (of course, those locks!) and dynamic, and he loved how she looked at him with respect and adoration. Christine reminds Andrea that Kody’s main focus is the family, and sometimes it is hard for the wives when they desire their husband’s undivided attention.
It doesn’t matter that the very thought of latrines and paper plates nearly drove everyone to blows over dinner, Phaedra Parks has decided “roughing it” on a glamping trip is just what the group needs to work through their issues. And if not, she’ll put them on toilet digging duty or have them get lost in the woods. Unfortunately, Porsha has been avoiding Phaedra since dinner, over her possible allegiance to Kenya. So, Phaedra decides the thing to do is meet Kenya on mutual territory to discuss how an anger management conversation got so, well, angry.
Bianca and Jamie O’Hara are friends again, so Jedward decide to do a sex education class for them, using an ornamental brass banana and a condom. It’s like having a five year old tell you the facts of life. Jamie tells them he ‘don’t use them’ – words fail me. Calum Best and Nicole McLean are not amused. Same can be said for Jamie and Bianca. Jedward only seem to come to the forefront when they’re irritating. Like a child trying to get attention. They follow this by asking Kim if she’s ever ‘had fun’ on a kitchen table. Again, like a child when they learn something rude that they perceive to be funny. Someone vote them out and put us out of our misery.
On Day 23 in the Celebrity Big Brother house, we’re warned that this day will have the family task, where the housemates’ loyalty to the house is tested with temptation in the form of contact from their families. I have to admit this is my least favorite task every year; it’s very predictable and there’s just no time for it.
We start the day with Jessica Cunningham telling Nicola McLean that she has not one, but three boyfriends on the outside (take that Bianca Gascoigne), most of which know about the others (most?!?). Elsewhere, Jedward is doing swim aerobics in the pool; just another day then.
It’s day 22 in the Celebrity Big Brother house! Here we are again, and be warned, I’ve had no sleep so my sense of humor is in the same place as Kim Woodburn’s sense of goodwill: virtually non-existent. Back to the house and we go back in time to eviction Day.
Jedward played pizza boxes last night, and left a huge mess in the store room. Stacy Francis and Coleen Nolan confront the boys who straight away start to tidy up and sort. Despite it being sorted, Nicola McLean comes into the room and starts having a go at Jedward again, completely needlessly. Think she’s lost the plot. She’ll probably find it with my lost sleeping hours….
It’s day 21 in the Celebrity Big Brother house! Spencer Pratt has been up to his tricks during the night. Coleen Nolan was asleep in bed, and Spencer pulls the cover off her and talks and makes noises in her face. She’s telling James Cosmo outside and she’s frustrated that not one person told him to stop, and says they’re all scared of him.
Stacy and Jessica Cunningham are talking. One of Jessica’s reasons for nominating Stacy was that she hoards food, but Stacy is trying to explain why she does so, based on experiences that happened before Jessica came in. She says she always gives it out too, but Jedward just eats everything so it was too keep food away from them. She starts getting into an argument with Jessica, walks away and straight into another bicker with Kim Woodburn. Hopefully she’s getting them all out the way for a peaceful rest-of-day.
After the fallout of the previous evening, Nicola chose not to sleep in her normal bed next to Speidi. Stacy speaks to Jessica and Nicola and tells them not to bring the whole Speidi thing up when they’re drinking. Also, she points out to Jessica that she is the last person that should have the conversation as she barely knows her. How long were the first batch of housemates in then???
Oh Lisa Vanderpump – you saucy minx! I see your redemption campaign, smiling blithely, supremely feigning ignorance to any possible schemes, handing Dorit Kemsley a mirror and instructing her how to amputate her nose to spite her face, defending the maligned, innocent Kim Richards… I think Ms. LVP missed her calling in politics!
Last night had a tricky little moment between LVP and Dorit, didn’t it? Dorito had descended from her Nacho Cheese Delusions and spent the entire episode getting into my good graces, and also the good graces of Lipsa and Eileen Davidson, but in the last few moments, as if a switch was flipped, she all of a sudden turned a bit vituperative. Seeming to plant, to a scandalized, yet dismissive LVP that Lipsa is carrying around baggies of drugs. Now, before LVP could start alerting the police, Dorit was quick to add, as an afterthought that, the pills were “mostly” vitamins.
