I finally got to see last week's episode. And...Candiace and Ashley...the expression reaction team I didn't think I needed. lol.
At first I thought the episode was off. But as it went on, it became an episode of fun shade and little moments that reminded me of how great POTOMAC tends to be.
While we still had not made it to the main storyline this season, it's been great that we have this little feud between Wendy and Mia. What seem minor in the season opener is slowly but surely blowing up and it's been fun to watch so far. I thought Wendy really was throwing too much shade at someone she did not know. But now Mia was doing it during the couple game and it feels...more matched?
Speaking of teams...awwww at La Dame and Ashley bonding. I loved that they have acknowledged that they really have come a loooooooooong way from Season 1. And lol at Dean not liking La Dame.
LA DAME. That was Sing Sing? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA!!!! Of course, that would be something she would do. However, I did wonder if that was just her covering up that she knew more about Gizelle. After all, they have known each other a long time. And perhaps she does want that friendship or she is intelligent enough to not completely burn the bridge. YET. And I liked that her and Candiace are taking steps. And as I mentioned...good to see that her and Ashley are on the same side for now.
GIZELLE. She really has nothing going on than this fake storyline, does she? Even her kids drag her which stays funny. And even Mia got in on the act at the love party.
ROBYN. It is becoming more and more clear that Juan is OVER filming. Not surprised she helped Gizelle with the fake storyline. But at least her fashion is on point.
ASHLEY. lol. And same with Juan, Michael is OVER filming. It is not as bad as with Robyn because Ashley was one of the main pot stirrers on this show and does not need him to stay interesting, but most of the drama at times did come from him as well. Should be interesting to see if a void pops up with her. I suspect, unlike Robyn, not. And I LIVED for her and Candiace reacting to Wendy vs Mia.
CANDIACE. I have mixed feelings. It is clear she is getting the good edit so far. Especially after last season. I said this earlier, but it's like Porsha over on RHOA. I used to hate her, but she grew on me when she was preggers. Then this past season and the Simon drama revealed that all of that might have been a lie in the first place. So showing Candiace with kids, seeing her working on her acting AND music career, her trying to rise above...well, it's good to see her try to mature finally. I just don't trust if it's completely real. Like how Ashley is transparent for example. Judging from the fact Candiace IRL did release a new video recently (and we will see the process on the show per the trailer), it appears legit. So...we'll see. I was not bugged by her.
WENDY. I think I preferred 4 Degrees Wendy to BlowUp Doll Wendy. The only thing they have in common is that both were highly insecure. And Mia's presence is driving her crazy. Good for us because we have a fun feud going on. However, she feels so artificial to me now. The only time she did not was with her family. And I love her sister so that was cool. Still...she feels very 'throw it at the wall to see what sticks' right now. And I feel that will bite her on the big butt in the end.
MIA. She continues to be a fun breath of fresh air. It was nice to see her family life and her husband interacting with the other husbands. She is definitely fitting in with the group which is good.
Round 3 tonight. lol.
And while I'm on...I see the running rumor is that LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron are back. And there are 3 new girls a la NY S5. And it appears if the rumor is true...it's a black woman, an Asian, and a Muslim...and two of them don't seem to like Kameron.
