I have to confess, I TOTALLY related to Karen during this scene ... I had the Dr. Zell of dentists when I was a kid and was totally traumatized for life. I hadn't gone to the dentist in almost 10 years when I finally put on my big-girl panties earlier this year and made an appointment with my current dentist (very proud of myself) ... He knows my fear and didn't lecture me about not coming for the last decade, LOL ... and he's made me my own personal nitrous mask which I need BEFORE I WILL EVEN OPEN MY MOUTH TO LET HIM CHECK MY TEETH. I amazingly did not have any cavities but needed gum planing when I had my teeth cleaned and was given sedation (not IV but pills) along with novocaine along with nitrous. I now have become brave enough to ONLY need nitrous for cleaning as long as I go every six months.
I do love this show ... I live in MoCo so it's fun to catch glimpses of places I know (not that many because I don't hang out in Potomac ... NORTH Potomac, yes, LOL). I especially loved the season where they went out and rented a house in, IIRC, Bethany Beach, where Mr. Snappy and I go many-but-not-all summers for a few days. I knew almost every restaurant.
If any of you ladies in the greater MoCo vicinity want to have a season finale watch party, let me know! I'll bring sass and pink hair dye (Colorista).
Also, I can't remember if I mentioned this at the time but if I did it was on the "old boards" ... back in December 2017 I was at an event out at National Harbor related to my "old life," right around when I officially retired for good. I was on line to check out of the hotel and the couple in front of me was really familiar and I assumed they were connected to the event and was running through my entire mental rolodex, what little is left of it after a stroke and two TGAs ... and I suddenly realized it was Karen and BBG!!!! I actually almost fangeeked a little bit because she saw I recognized her ... and I just babbled a bit and said how much I loved the show. She was actually incredibly gracious and sweet about it and BBG was a doll (I think he's adorable). So my little tiny brush with RHOP fame. They were checking in ... I wonder now if it was for something involved with La Dame (in fact, when I saw that scene, it looked an AWFUL lot like the convention center from the event I was at, but it also seems this season in real time is a lot more recent than that was).
