… Continuing right where we left off. Jen is on thin ice, literally and figuratively with Meredith, and it doesn’t seem like their relationship can ever be repaired. Is Jen still on the bench in this episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake Town Or does someone else start taking the heat?
Lisa He does everything he can to stop Meredith from running away from Jen. Meredith just can’t understand why Lisa seems to be on Jen’s side even after all the horrible things Jen has said and done to Brooks. Meredith is puzzled by the way Lisa still has Jen’s back, but Lisa seems to understand the pain Meredith is experiencing, courtesy of Jen. Lisa is stuck in a difficult loyalty situation.
In the meantime, Whitney he lets Jen know that he seems to be going against Heather, Whitney, and Brooks. Naturally, Jen can’t bear to be called. He wants Meredith to “own her shit” whatever that means and tries to divert attention from her, as Jen usually does. As the argument continues, heather he stands on the sidelines and refuses to get up because “I’m not going to the weak side of the ice because I lied about my body weight.” LOL.
Jen Shah’s deviation is real. She is busy trying to defend her “fucking vagina” and is no longer the person to blame. I have to say that Lisa is an amazing friend who tries to find Jen’s tennis bracelet in the snow after Jen throws a tantrum and throws it in a fit of rage.
Whitney wants to know why Lisa feels she needs to protect and defend Jen. Meredith claims that “they both need peace”, but Whitney is seeing through the BS. Who knew Jen’s assistant Stuart would be the one trying to communicate with Jen? Jen hates having to apologize * again * … but after a LOT of noise, Jen rushes in to tell Meredith she’s sorry and declares that the last thing she wanted to do was hurt Brooks. The women hug him and it seems like all that therapy work may actually be working for Jen. Meredith lets Jen know that she should apologize to Brooks and it seems to me that Meredith let him go really fast, didn’t she?
Lisa turns to her friend SaraJane’s home. There is also Lisa’s friend, Angie. The girls have bonded over their love of fast food and discuss upcoming plans. Angie has invited women to an Encircle fundraising event supporting the LQBTQ + community as it is a cause near and dear to her heart. Angie has a transgender son, but so I just said that he loves Chik-Fil-A… sooooo ?? Lisa is upset that Angie and Whitney are now very close because they have recently realized that they are cousins, but despite Lisa’s recent reorganizations with Whitney, Lisa promises to behave her best at the event, as Whitney is also on the guest list.
Maria and your son have a very awkward exchange that lasts about 11 seconds. Fortunately, he is interrupted by Meredith ringing the doorbell. Meredith just had a vampire facial that Mary can’t understand. Both women plan to go to Angie’s casino night, but this will be the first time Mary has seen Jen since the meeting. Mary thought women could move on, but Jen continues to show unpredictable behavior to Mary according to her posts.
Meredith tells Mary that Jen took “partial responsibility” for all the hurtful comments about Brooks on social media and that Jen would like to apologize to Brooks, but they both know they can’t trust Jen. Only time will tell if Jen is honest in her apology.
Whitney and Angie (aka cousins) are having lunch. (Timeout: why does Angie ONLY look like Sarah Paulson?) Whitney claims she’s related to everyone and wants people to be in the know so she doesn’t date second cousins. Super important PPE. Also, does this mean that Angie and Heather are cousins too? Angie shares that Lisa is not very happy with her as she has forged such a close relationship with Whitney, but Whitney just shrugs.
Angie asks for Whitney’s opinion on a text message she recently received. This text came from the caterer (who happens to be very close friends with Lisa) and stated that they could no longer work at the Encircle party. Angie is left struggling and questioning if Lisa is really sabotaging the event due to her friendship with Whitney. It seems a bit of the next level, but nothing would surprise me.
It’s the night of Angie’s casino party and we’re waiting for food to be served. Angie has done everything possible, even jewelry that you could wear at night. Where do these people come from? (In addition to the Whitney family line).
Coach Shah is attending the event and everyone is avoiding Jen like the plague. I mean, Whitney is CLIMBING on a railing to stay as far away from Jen as possible. Jen can hardly believe that despite being two blocks from Brigham Young University, there are booze, trash tables, and a ton of rule breaking.
OMG, when Lisa walks past Whitney and pretends, she’s not even there … totally uncomfortable. Whitney suggests that she wear a name tag and is foreshadowing how the rest of the night will unfold.
Later, Jen finds Mary and drops next to her. Jen suggests a grill-off, but Mary turns it off quickly. It reminds Jen that she hates Mary, but Jen thinks everything is fine. Jen continues to play the role that all is well and asks Mary to have “faith” that they are moving forward. Mary explains that the door is open to their friendship, but there is also a screen in place … for security reasons, of course.
Angie changes her costume and takes Lisa aside to go talk somewhere. He’s having trouble with Lisa and he wants to know what her role is in the whole catering business … if she does. Angie confronts Lisa and asks if the cancellation had something to do with her. Lisa says she “feels weird right now”, but Angie makes it clear that Lisa’s name was said in the text.
Lisa, unsure of how to get out of the hot seat, swerves like Jen Shah. She changes the subject to Angie’s friendship with Whitney and falsely cries about how it hurts her. Angie calls out Lisa for not focusing on the real problem and Lisa runs off to grab Meredith and Jen.
Meredith is confused about this drama with the provider, and it’s insane that Lisa called in her reinforcements. Lisa continues with the crocodile tears and claims that she feels accused of something she did not do.
The back and forth continues until Whitney quietly enters the room and finds a seat on the couch in the middle of the fight. Lisa stops what she’s doing to yell, “Whitney, why are you here?” Lisa’s shots. Lisa wants Whitney out because it has nothing to do with her relationship with Angie. Lisa spits out that she wants Angie to approach her directly instead of asking Whitney (from anyone) for her opinion on a situation.
Whitney reminds Lisa how strange the timeline for the cancellation was, as it was only five hours after Angie told Lisa they were friends. Lisa doesn’t like to be challenged and tries her best to squeeze out the tears that are WATCHING disappear the moment she leaves the room …
