On this week’s episode of Teen Mom 2, we have gorgeous vacations, contentious custody arguments, adorable sibling moments and a whole lot of plastic surgery and fractured relationships. Let’s dive in.
Briana DeJesus: We start off in Miami with Briana and the Dr. Miami surgery storyline. Shirley is done with her surgery. Now that Javi has shown up it is awkward according to Briana. I’m a little confused because as of a couple weeks ago he was going to be the caretaker of both of them. Personally, I would think the awkwardness would come from being intimately dependent post-surgery on someone you’ve been with for five minutes (or not at all, as in the case of Shirley) and having cameras and crew documenting it to the world. But that’s just me. Despite complaining about him being there, Javi ends up in the car as they go to the Miami rental.
While we patiently wait to see the deals that Amazon is going to offer up on Prime Day 2018 (which kicks off tomorrow, July 16th, if you didn’t know already), we got to thinking about not only reality star products that we’ve seen over the years, but also about the products we consider (half-jokingly) “essential” for proper reality TV watching!
Well, it is here, the Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant reunion. Our girls are all grown up and watching the clips of them pregnant and having their babies in full makeup and fancy clothes. It is the typical reunion set up for the franchise, but no Dr. Drew. In fact, Nessa didn’t even host. I never thought I would miss either of them but I did. I forgot how the pacing of these reunion shows used to go when you scrunched everyone into the same hour and didn’t drag it out for three episodes and include a couple hallway fights and backstage temper tantrums.
Have there ever been more frivolous fights on The Real Housewives of Potomac than the ones we witnessed tonight? Okay, season 1 had its moments, but the ladies were new to reality TV and could be forgiven for rookie mistakes. But several scenes tonight top my list of stupid stuff to fight about.
Gizelle Bryant and Robyn Dixon are on a mission to deliver a message to Karen Huger. I’m not sure exactly what their message is other than Robyn wants to say “Liar, liar, pants on fire”, and Gizelle wants to see Karen embarrassed. I’m getting Déjà vu from last year when the Green-Eyed Bandits crashed in to OZ while Ashley Darby was working and Robyn came at her, finger in face, screaming that Ashley needed to stop talking about Juan.
Sometimes a Housewife has a really bad day. This week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Potomac was Robyn Dixon’s turn. Robyn is like a boxer who comes out swinging and yelling at the opponent “Hit me!” with her chin sticking out. And when they do it, she’s shocked and can’t understand why they came at her.
We start back at last week’s press conference where Karen Huger is deflecting questions and declaring that she is shutting it down. Robyn is still yelling at Karen to tell the truth. Gizelle Bryant takes one last swing at Karen on the way out by showing the back of her t-shirt that says, “#freeuncleben” and “#taxreform”. Karen yells that Gizelle is tacky as hell, and I have to say it wasn’t Gizelle’s finest moment. Monique Samuels decides that Gizelle came to clown around and looked like a clown in her 99 cent shirt…and Robyn follows. Karen and her assistant get in the car to leave, but Robyn has to take one last dig at her. She taps on the window of Karen’s car and asks, “Why are you so mad?” Come on Robyn. We all know you aren’t that dense.
If the Real Housewives of Potomac were comic book villains, then Karen Hugerwould be The Riddler. Last night she had all the women staring wide-eyed and giving a collective “Huh?” Her story had more holes than a box of Cheerios, but it was sure entertaining to watch. I hope you all are having as much fun as I am this season. These women are on point, so let’s get into the episode.
Karen shows up at Monique Samuels’ house in a $100k+ Jaguar that is sexy pretty. She is wearing a skintight cat suit that makes me think of the pit crew from a NASCAR event, but I have to say she looks really good. Inside, Monique shows Karen her shark tank and points to the boss shark at the bottom that is named “Grand Dame” which Karen loves. However, as much as they have in common, the shark is kind of wimpy because while it will eat anything that gets between her and her food, Karen will gut anyone who gets in her way and then follow them into eternity and do it all over again, just for fun. That’s dedication, my friends! (and also why so far I’m being very nice to Karen…)
We get our first baby of the season and here’s hoping that all the daddies can be as attentive and nurturing as Sean’s first night home with Jade Cline and baby Kloie! If not, we have to hope that hard hitting relative like Aunt Vania will come in and set them straight! Let’s dive in to the latest episode of Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant!
