Happy shady Sunday LaPazions, tonight’s episode is more like 50 shades of drama.. We’re going to get right into things we see that Gizelle and Robyn meet up for lunch and they are toasting to new beginnings- Gizelle, ask Robyn if Juan said anything from her speaking to him? Robyn said, well he basically said the “Gizelle needed to mind her own business.” (side note: seems to be a running theme when you hear Gizelle and other people) Gizelle, stated well he never answered my question-Bravo Juan, I guess you felt like many watching the only person you need to answer to is Robyn and she isn’t asking so what is the need to answer anything:
Katie and her “friend” T, get together to basically spill some tea where Katie will be taking all opportunities to throw shade which is becoming a running theme with her. T-ask Katie how is Andrew doing with a ready made family?(even your friend is throwing shade at you) Katie says well, you know he’s doing fine may need a little “his”space but, he just loves me and wants me around.. Who is she really trying to convince? Katie then goes on to bash Karen Huger’s “O” Gala called it a scaled down cocktail party not impressed-when I attend like 3 real Gala’s a week and I think she so needs my help.. (Hello Bobble Head, you just canceled your charity event because, you couldn’t carry it out nor plan it properly to get the sponsorships needed) from that point she goes right into how Gizelle is so annoying (look in the mirror) I feel she has a good heart but, dresses like a prostitute..Katie is like the middle child that get’s ignored and is desperate for attention at any cost.. I really feel she needs to go and sit on someone’s coach to workout all of her self-hate and insecurities be them real or made up in her little pea brain. Lord let’s move on from this delusional person-
Karen is in the midst of having Ravyn’s graduation/going off to college party and her emotions are getting the best of her because, as a mother this is her baby who has grown up and is moving forward in her life and that leaves her and Ray now to just focus on each other. Karen and Ray talk about the empty ness and what they are going to do with each other and it is so nice to see that Raymond is also looking at the feelings and emotions of his wife but, is also dealing with his own as his baby is leaving and becoming a young independent lady. Ray ask Karen about the Ashley debacle at the end of the “O” Gala and Karen, introduces her alter ego Shaka to us and stated, I thought she was about to make her debut.. LOL!! Funny when passive aggressive women get upset, I find it odd that they always have to call on alter egos to really express themselves, instead of being able to just speak their own truth and feelings.. Moving on to Ashley Darby who goes to pick up her mother for lunch and these two have such a beautiful relationship, and it shows the love and respect Ashley has for all her mother did for her and her siblings growing up in a single family house hold. I had to laugh because, Ashley’s mother doesn’t know what energy saver cars are like and she thought the car kept shutting off at every stop but, it just idols down.. LOL!! Ashley speaks with her mother about please allowing her and Michael to help her and her mother says she just doesn’t want to be a burden on her children. Ashley surprises her mother by letting her know that Michael and herself have purchased a home for her and they will not take no for and answer.. This is such a beautiful healthy relationship:Gizelle and her Girls are just too cute but, these young girls are as old as their mother because, Gizelle feels the need to speak with them as if they are young adults or big teenagers.. She decides to ask the girls their opinions on her dating and joining like match.com and the girls get all excited and ask has she joined and Gizelle says NO!! These young girls then say mom you need to start dating please we want you to and Gizelle says I just want to make sure you all are okay with mommy going out on dates.. Hello, do you think they think you’re at home knitting blankets for them? KNOCK KNOCK at the door it’s Charrisse.. She comes to visit Gizelle and she speaks about her up coming 50th birthday bash.. I love it!! PAUSE Gizelle feels the need to ask the most obvious of questions “Is Eddie going to attend?” Charrisse, simply states she doubts it but, she is going to have her night and he’s footing the Bill.. Which leads to how much and she says $80,000 LORD!! (Side Note: I know when Eddie receives this bill he’ll beat her to the lawyers..) LOL!! Prior to Charrisse coming over she did a photo shoot that Katie Rost “helped” during.. Gave no real advice in posing just told her to think of a math problem like she isn’t good at math like 7+7 gives you the shocked look.. LOL!! Bobble head.. Katie gives Charrisse a typical Jewish greeting L’Chaim-which means to Life.. Charrisse tickled me trying to get the correct pronunciation..
Robyn invites Juan out for dinner so they can talk about things.. Juan arrives and he’s got ball shorts on and a t-shirt which seems to be his look on any given time we see him.. Anyway Robyn wants to know if he has any updates in regards to the job he applied for, and Juan pauses and tells her he didn’t get the job.. Needless to say things will remain as is for these two:
Thank goodness it’s time for Charrisse’s 50th birthday bash and the guest are starting to pour into the event.. We see Katie and Andrew arriving and of course the little bobble head in her confessional has some smart to say: Karen should be taking notes from Charrisse on how and event is to look kind of reminds me of a wedding.. (she is so desperate for a proposal that anything could look like a wedding) Gizelle arrives and makes the next comment: oh I see Eddie isn’t here, hello Charrisse isn’t even there yet.. Karen and Ray arrive and Karen is like oh everything is so gorgeous-Then Ashley and Michael arrive at least for this they were on time.. LOL!!
We see Ashley speak to Karen and Karen acknowledges her, but, moves on rather quickly to congratulate Charrisse and thank her for having them as guest.. Mean while Ashley says to Robyn and Gizelle, that she tried to speak with Karen and it seems as though she isn’t trying to really speak with me.. Gizelle says, look Ashley Karen isn’t putting up with her and just wishes not to speak with her at this time..
Instead of her taking a clue for a thousand and moving on to maybe a better time she approaches Karen, can we talk? Karen, is like NO-I’m not doing this with you-Bye Ashley.. Girl go pet a pig.. LOL!!
I’m sorry but, at this point you can see something dark and ugly rising inside of Katie because, she has something snide to say about almost all the ladies except at this moment Ashley and Charrisse… Whom she has deemed as her friend since going to help with the photo shoot for the slide show for the party..
Charrisse daughter Skylar gave a speech in recognition of her mothers 50th birthday and I hate to say this but, it sounded so childish coming from a young person who is almost 17 years of age.. Then Charrisse comes to the stage and kicks her rap game from back in the day and she did well.. She just is celebrating her life and take hold of it by both horns and says that Eddie just will not rain on her parade:
I mean everyone is just laughing and having a blast and then Michael goes and grabs Andrew’s butt.. Which Andrew says.. Um Michael just grabbed my butt.. to Katie and no one seemed to be the wiser but, wait Gizelle and Robyn see what just took place and they approach Ashley. As Gizelle is speaking to Ashley Katie turns and puts her two cents into the convo.. Gizelle says Ashley I don’t know many men that would like having some other man grabbing his butt.. Don’t you find this odd and Ashley again with the clueless abandonment says Oh my word it’s just a joke lighten up..
Robyn says well Ashley I mean is this like a White thing that they just do—Well she should’ve just spit in Katie and Ashley’s face because now this turns into something that I don’t think Robyn nor Gizelle had any intentions of crossing.. Ashley says really I don’t know why you would say this aren’t you biracial? Lord-Gizelle and Robyn both looked like what are you talking about? We’re not biracial I’m black.. Well Katie just jumps on it with your green eyes and light skin and blonde hair you need to go and check your genealogy.. I mean this just insults Gizelle and Robyn cause, they didn’t say it to make this a black/white issue they said it as if this is something that maybe Caucasians do.. Needless to say Katie- get’s all bent and says Have fun and stop with your racially charged comments.. She runs right over to Andrew and starts spinning her story:Needless to say with all the insults Gizelle and Robyn decide they are going to call it a night so, they go to find Charrisse and Ashley goes to find Michael..
Ashley approaches Michael and ask: Did you grab Andrews butt, because Gizelle and Robyn are under the impression that you did:Michael fully-denies doing anything and how much Ashley is sexy, smart, beautiful and pretends to get chocked up over his own bull that he is shoveling her.. LOL!! This man is questionable and he has her so fooled that it’s sad. Ashley in turn says well it’s not a bid deal people need to lighten up.. Shut up you sound like you’re stuck on stupid..
Gizelle and Robyn give Charrisse a quick heads up and Charrisse is like honey please, I’m having too much fun to even care or give this a second thought..
Next Week is the season finally and Gizelle is putting together a luncheon for all the ladies to come and lay their issues bare and no one is to leave the table until all things are ironed out..
Do you think Gizelle and Robyn we’re trying to bring racial stereo types into the conversation?
