Ep 9: Bravotv.com's Editor commends Tamra's emotional speech and Terry's big apology.

on May 24, 2013

Hello RHOC fans. We learned a lot this episode didn't we? We learned just how far up Gretchen certain medical things need to go. . . and more importantly we learned a lot about the reasoning behind Tamra's tude. Let's discuss this very revealing episode.

Lids, Not the Hat Store
We start with Heather and Tamra having a little cocktail time. Heather’s impressed with the ladylike touches Tamra’s added to her cohabitation casa with Eddie. Here’s what did not impress Heather -- Gretchen and Slade continual in and out during the taping. She’s also less than impressed with Terry. They haven’t really had a chance to talk since their big fight, but hopefully that can all be resolved soon. If not Heather will just eat chocolate in the pantry forever (at least I think that was her other option). 

Speaking of resolving, Lydia and Alexis meet over coffee to discuss all the drama. Before that, Lydia makes the most adorable Lydia-style joke ever -- a lid for Lyd. Har har har. Oh Lydia, that kind of gentle humor and goofy demeanor is exactly why we love you -- and exactly why you don’t need any more caffeine. Lydia is still hoping that Alexis can mend fences with everyone. She wants her to be a part of all the joyous things that are going on in the ladies’ lives. She wants Alexis to make a big, bold move! Reach out! How about one more shot. Doesn’t Lyd deserve it for the lid joke she made? Reward a sister's comedic timing.

Perhaps she learned that sense of humor from her mother. While, Judy didn’t impart her with the skills of soup-making or laundering, she did make her daughter pretty fun. But Lydia is still feeling upset about her mom’s pot smoking. Eventually she decides that it's more important for her mother to know how much she loves her -- even if she doesn't boil noodles and even if she does smoke pot. Flower petal throwing for all!
