Nothing makes me happier than a fresh episode of “Southern Charm” – especially after part2 of the “Vanderpump Rules” reunion.
Episode two of “Southern Charm” begins with Whitney at T-Rav’s, for a visit. Sadly, Whitney admits that he’s single – and apparently ready to mingle. T-Rav says he wants to see Whitney out every night “closing on-site”, meaning hooking up with chicks in public bathrooms. Oh laawwd.
Katherine goes over to Dani’s house, and she admits to not passing the drug test (the initial drug test we heard about at the end of last season). She also talks briefly about her time in rehab, and says her and Thomas are not speaking.
Katherine says she’s passed her most-recent drug test, which means she may be eligible for joint custody of her children.
Meanwhile, Cameron is heading to Jennifer’s house. Jennifer was pregnant at the end of last season, with a child that was likely to have birth defects. The baby is four weeks old, and has already had brain surgery.
Jennifer says many people in the “group” have reached out to wish her well, but not Katherine.
At Landon’s house, she is having a meeting with her “staff”… huh? Turns out, she is still working on her travel lifestyle magazine. They are hosting a soft launch to show everyone what she’s been working on.
Shep meets up with Craig at the batting cages, where we learn that apparently it was Craig’s original dream to play in the major leagues. What?? Shep then confronts Craig about not graduating from school, and where the application for the bar exam went.
Craig wants to know why Shep is so obsessed with him – obviously, he says, it’s because he’s old and single and just unhappy in his own life. Yeeessshhhh.
Cameron meets up with Chelsea, and I guess she’s got a little crush on Shep… but we all know how that is going to turn out.
Whitney, Austin, and Shep go to lunch, and Shep admits that he thinks Chelsea is beautiful. Whitney notes that Thomas has admitted to “trying” with Landon, but that was the end of the conversation.
At Craig and Naomi’s, he explains the incident with Shep to her, and although she takes his side, she seems pretty annoyed that she’s been working toward getting her Master’s degree, while she’s not really sure what he does all day (hint: he talks to the cat).
It’s the day of Landon’s soft launch party, and I’m already annoyed with her. She’s all, “It feels good to show people I have a job”…umm no you don’t?
Whitney arrives at the party with his date, Daisy… and she’s a lil wild. Then Craig confronts Cameron about everything Shep said.
There’s only a small part of this gathering dedicated to Landon’s website, and in all honesty, it looks pretty basic. But give everyone free cocktails, and sure, they’re going to love every pixel of it.
Shep pulls Landon aside and tells her that some people in the tech industry had a negative experience with her recently – that she made comments about how she only hangs out with billionaires. She denies it and basically tells him to go fuck himself, and he suggests to simply kill with kindness.
Well, she gets even more pissy and is ready to shut the party D O W N.
Later, Shep takes Chelsea on a date for some real fancy cocktails. Cameron joins them to see how things go. Shep explains to the ladies what happened with Landon and the tech investors. And the episode is overrrrrr.
In the preview for next week, it looks like the date with Shep and Chelsea is a success, but may go downhill fast. And then Craig has a meltdown over a charity event.
Hello! Thank you so much to everyone who wished me luck and sent me well wishes yesterday – it was very sweet and I really appreciate it.
I’ve got the recap of Sunday night’s episode of “Mariah’s World” for you – a day late – but hey, today may seem like a Monday for those of you that had yesterday off work.
So, the tour is still on, and Tanaka is still hanging around despite the fact that he’s injured and not doing the one job he was hired for: dancing. Instead, he’s wearing a lamb costume.
Meanwhile, another dancer gets injured – because that is how FIRE the show is (it really does look intense, but cool). With another dancer down and a show in two days, Mariah is worried about the lift, and wants to simplify the choreography.
On the plane, Mariah is playing with Tanaka’s hair… and Stella wants to jump out of the place because it feels so awkward. Later, Stella tells Mariah that Tanaka MUST have a crush on her, and Mariah is acting so clueless.
The creative director is not down to simplify the show, so he’s called in some new dancers to help fill in just in time for the big show in Paris.
In other news, remember how Mariah Carey’s social media manager is 12? No, she’s really 12, it’s Stella’s daughter. Like that is a job people my age would KILL for. Forget the money, just the experience itself would be baaaad-assss; and a 12 year old posts a picture of Mariah’s ass in just hosiery, and she gets a little slap on the wrist.
Huh? Child, please.
And then Mariah has her last fitting with her wedding dress, along with her daughter in her little gown. Awkwaaaaard. Obviously this is the closest window I have into Mariah’s life, but I totally didn’t realize she was this far in to the wedding planning before they called it off.
James Packer makes a shocking appearance (although it’s very short), and Tanaka is finally starting to remember, ohhhh yeah, there’s another guy in this picture.
Right before the show, Mariah and her staff learn of the news that Prince has died. Mariah is very upset, as Prince was not only a big inspiration for her career, but also a very close friend.
However, the show does go on, and even with the new dancers – everything looks great (and they’re wearing these awesome hoodies that are completely covered in blue sequins). She has a moment of silence to honor Prince, and then sings “Hero”, and it is quite lovely.
Post-show, Mariah is hosting a vodka launch (her own vodka, and the label is pink). James is there, and he’s all over Mariah… and Tanaka is in the corner, pouting. He’s so sad, in fact, that he slinks off into the elevator alone, as elegant as anyone on crutches can do.
Tanaka is on the roof talking to one of the other dancers, and he confesses that he likes Mariah, and that seeing her with James is bursting his bubble.
In the preview for next week’s episode, Tanaka gets weed and Mariah is all flirty again… oh, boy.
On another note, is anyone watching “The Bachelor”? Don’t worry, no spoilers, but I just want to mention that The Backstreet Boys were on last night’s episode, and AJ and Nick (Carter), looked fine as all hell. Still.
