I'm with Karen on this one. If Gizelle and I are "friends" then even if the show is being filmed, you will not use the bad parts of my personal life as funny dialogue for your scenes. You know I'm in the papers and blogs for some pretty heavy stuff, what's the joke about free uncle ben, tax reform, etc. Even if it was a joke, that was a terrible poorly timed joke. I don't need those types of friends.
Monique is my favorite housewife on this cast and my 2nd favorite housewife in the whole franchise, only narrowly beaten out by Cynthia Bailey. She seems like the most real down to earth housewife, and I think she's a great mother. I have been following her on IG, listening to her not for lazy moms podcast, and she is great. I loved her in this episode. She's one of the few housewives I actually see "raising" their kids in front of the camera, like when she told them to chill out when they were being rowdy, and praising Chris when he was taking care of his little sister. I love love love her.
I could do without the Ashley and Robyn scenes. Not the biggest fan of either of them. I feel bad for Robyn, I hope for her sake that she is telling the truth about her and Juan, because its pretty hard to watch her be the gullible girl every season. I think he is doing damage control for how bad he looked in season 1.
Candiace's mother had my blood boiling. I won't even get into it, but briefly I can't believe the things that were coming out of her mouth, as a therapist. She's a walking contradiction and I hope Candiace's brother is not offended by the things that she said.
