Survivor: Ghost Island Episode 9 Recap: Casualties Of War

Sadly, there was no rapping on Survivor this week, but that didn’t mean there weren’t battles to be had. Entering Wednesday’s episode, we were down to just 12 contestants left this season, and at last count I believe roughly 286 hidden Idols…give or take. For the newest member of this season’s Survivor jury, it had to be a frustrating end, since the person just couldn’t quite figure out what was making him/her a target. The larva grubs (or whatever the hell they were) weren’t the only things that were tough to swallow this week.

But before we dive in, as I do at the beginning of every Recap, please heed the following: Remember that this recap assumes that you have already seen this week’s Episode 9 of Survivor: Ghost Island, so if you have not and don’t want to be spoiled, please come back later! It’s important to add too that while we WILL hit on all of the important developments of the episode, this is not a linear “blow-by-blow” recap, and is more of a discussion and reaction of what we just witnessed together.

Tinsley Mortimer Denies Sonja Moran’s Claims That She’s A “Kept” Woman; Describes Luann de Lesseps As Arrogant

It took Tinsley Mortimer a little while to get acclimated during her first season on Real Housewives of New York. She’s starting out her second season strong.

She still has tension with her former roommate Sonja Morgan, she’s coming for Luann de Lesseps and her quickie marriage to Tom D’Agostino, and she has an on-again-off-again romance with Scott Kluth. She’s even straightened her hair for a scene or two- which is a big deal considering how attached she is to her signature curls.

NeNe Leakes Doesn’t Accept Kim Zolciak’s Apology; Tells Her To File A Lawsuit

The drama between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak is just never going to end. Some Real Housewives of Atlanta fans might be tired of that, but I am not one of them. I am living for every shady remark. As far as I’m concerned, they can keep up the good work.

We haven’t been blessed with episode three of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion aka The NeNe vs. Kim show, but in the mean time, these two have been providing plenty of entertainment on social media.

Teddi

Thankfully the worst season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is over… Oh wait, we will still be subjected to the reunion episodes. Of course, I’ll be tuning in no matter what, but I just wish they had more entertaining things to argue about.

What are they even going to discuss? Dorit Kemsley being late and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave having “incorrect” glassware. That sounds riveting….

Sheree defends Tyrone

Even though there are rumors that Sheree Whitfield got fired from Real Housewives of Atlanta, she really gave me life during that reunion episode when she said she has She by Sheree joggers coming out “September, Spring/Summer.”

It’s clear that a lot of the Housewives have issues with Sheree, so I don’t understand why they would fire her and keep a whole cast that gets along. How boring would Season 11 be?

Kyle Richards

Kyle Richards doesn’t care! It’s not her party and she’ll throw tantrums if she wants to, start fights if she wants to, Dorit Kemsley – you would too if happened to you. So that’s pretty much how the season finale of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills went!

All-in-all it was a pretty lackluster season (Lisa Rinna we need you! Like your first and second season you, but I understand you’re scarred after Revenge of the Blue Bunny). When the major drama centers around Dorit’s early on-set dementia (why does this woman never remember anything accurately or at all?!) and hissy fits over etiquette she doesn’t have, or Kyle feeling unsupported, you knew it was gonna end on a fussy note. Which is fine – any time I get to see Kyle act a fool, I kind of relish it.

Karen Huger Says Robyn Dixon “Holds The Crown Of Two-Faced” On Real Housewives Of Potomac

The last episode of Real Housewives of Potomac started out with the conclusion of Karen Huger’s “press conference,” but the focus of the drama shifted to Robyn Dixon for the rest of the episode. Robyn got into it with Monique Samuels at Monique’s party in her own home and Ashley Darby at the same event.

Karen was probably relieved to have someone else in the line of fire, but her refusal to fess up to financial problems is still the main story line of the season.

Kelly DoddKelly Dodd

When Kelly Dodd first joined Real Housewives of Orange County, she and Shannon Beador argued every single time they were at the same event. Kelly accused Shannon of “setting her up” at a seventies themed party. Shannon threw a plate full of food at Kelly mid-argument at a restaurant.

It didn’t seem like these two would ever be friends, but stranger things have happened on this show. Plus, Kelly and Shannon are both newly single ladies, so they have a lot in common these days.
