In every season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it must be said, there are a handful of episodes that shame us with their sheer stupidity. Even if you genuinely LOVE the Kardashians, and everything about them – sometimes this show can just be so dumb.
TV Show Recaps
I’m back, you guys, after a much-needed break from all things Kardashian! This week’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was a bit of a doozy, was it not? A splash of trifling Jenner sister drama, a dash of legit Rob legal drama and a few drops of Scott’s social anxiety drama all made for a KUWTK cocktail that was certainly more bitter than sweet, but we have much to discuss!
Normally I don’t like a clip show, especially a two-hour clip show, but Bravo did a pretty good job with its 100th-episode anniversary edition of Real Housewives of Orange County last night. The show has been on for a sufficiently long period of time (seven years) and has been sufficiently formative to contemporary television (for better or for worse) that a look back is probably in order.
Hello, Keeping Up With The Kardashians fans! Emily, your intrepid recapper, is on vacation this week. I intended to recap the show in her stead for your viewing pleasure, but because Time Warner Cable likes to keep New York City residents on its toes, I awoke this morning to no KUWTK on my DVR and no backup plan, because generally the media makes it incredibly easy for us to consume all the Kardashian information that our little hearts might or might not desire.
I tend to think it’s bad new for a Housewives franchise when an episode that objectively should have been highly entertaining fails to get me excited. Last night’s shenanigans on Real Housewives of Orange County, from taxi-jumping to bed-peeing, didn’t do much to move the needle on my imaginary excitement meter.
Against all odds (and in diametric opposition to the last few episodes), last night’s Real Housewives of Orange County was actually pretty entertaining. It’s funny what happens to Housewives when you move them to a second location – suddenly they’re energetic and hilarious, even if they’re objectively neither back home.
The PurseBlog team took the day off yesterday to celebrate Memorial Day with family and friends, and because of a very pressing nice-weather-on-a-patio situation, I missed last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. If you had already finished your day-off revelry and made it inside in time to watch the episode, we’d like to provide you with a spot to talk amongst yourselves about what transpired.
