Askale and Mia are doing a LOT to kickstart a feud, and it's a little exhausting but also fun in its basic pettiness. I did like when Askale fired back "Several actually" after Mia tried to dismiss her with "How many businesses do you run?"
Mia is messy in a good way, but she bit off more than she can chew with the texting back-and-forth with Gizelle/Robyn. Maybe she was trying to impress Karen (more likely she has watched the show for years and already has her opinion of these two), but she backed herself in a corner and had to apologize to Gizelle. And when Gizelle is able to lord it over you, the newbie, who has been forced to grovel a little bit, that is not a good position to be in.
I really like Gizelle's daughters and their natural, untutored response to things. Gizelle is at her best (and lightest) with them. But every time she talked about her 'relationship' with Jamal, Robyn had this face: and Kal had this face: . Yeah, they don't believe a word of this either.
Filler episode, but decent. Next week Gizelle vs Karen looks juicy.
RHONY preview. I really liked this little scene. It reminded me of 'old' RHONY, from the surroundings (somebody's upholstered bedroom??), to Ramona scarfing the free snacks, to Luann in what looks like her wedding gown and Ramona in whichever-three-handkerchiefs she sewed to her swimsuit. And some juicy gossip and snootiness. Anyone who thinks firing the OGs is the way to go on RHONY is Leah's sister a dead-eyed fool.
In BH news, Tom Girardi (yes, it's him) has been seen out and about.
Maybe that shiner is from falling out of a car going off a cliff behind the Girardi estate.
I want to be super excited, but after the last time my hopes aren't very high. It's one thing to do this shocking reveal, but another thing to turn it into an interesting long term storyline. That's where it failed last time.
Otherwise, it's just a casting stunt with no substance behind it, devised just because Bell doesn't know where to go with storylines. "When in doubt, insert Sheila Carter", or something like that.
Sheila's last appearance started well, but by the time Kimberlin Brown decided to run for politics. Brad Bell had her waitressing at the Italian restaurant serving Brooke breadsticks and rigatoni. Hopefully, this time we get a semi-decent story. I take it he is younger than Mary Margaret and older than Diana. And we can just ignore those other two children played by Wilson Bethel and Yvonne Zima from the sister show.
I do hope this means we can get to see both Mary-Margaret and James Warwick to help fill this story out too.
I did like someone's theory on Twitter I saw about Morgan DeWitt being Finn's mother. But I figured with Kimberlin tweeting back at Ted King that she was the one. I'm surprised Brad didn't try to keep this on the hush. Though I guess the show needs the publicity more at this moment.
Yeah... we can ignore them. Sheila can only have 3 children we can care about. I do want Mary and Diana to return on the canvas.
