Lots going on this last episode.
Michaele is getting ready for some kind of Redskins cheerleader alumni gathering. The other former cheerleaders don't appear to remember her and she seems to be the only one who doesn’t remember the routine. Maybe ‘cause she really wasn’t a Redskins Cheerleader.
The other ladies wonder later who makes up that kind of thing. And it makes me wonder how true the stories in the book the Salahis are planning will be (it's out now and will not be on my reading list). Michael and Tareq go to visit a writer to talk about their tell all. She actually asks if she has to write much to write a book.
Stacie has a gathering of the housewives, her friend Erika and their kids. Erika never has liked Cat and it shows now. Erika calls her mean and Cat calls her on it. They have it out while Stacie looks on, mortified that this is going on. Lynda and Mary side with Cat who leaves crying. For a hot minute Erika looks like she feels guilty, then attempts what started out as an apology. It was a really bad attempt.
Cat and Erika run into each other again at a small political meeting with a DC council member. Actually, they didn’t run into each other, ‘cause Cat avoided that chick like she was carrying a disease.
The meeting was about DC’s marriage equality initiative. Stacie and Jason come down firmly on the side of marriage being between a man and a woman. That’s a problem for Paul the stylist, who says people who are against gay marriage can't be his friends.
Cat and Charles are working on her book cover. There is a lot of tension for just working together on photos and font sizes. They don’t seem to be a happy couple, especially when he runs down his latest work trip, during which Cat will be left alone again. In separate conversations, the housewives and friends discuss the state of Cat's marriage and how lonely she is which seems to be the reason she's so stressed.
Cat can be a bit much to deal with, but I'm beginning to feel bad for her. If the show was playing her up as the villain, it's not working anymore. I think Erika has taken that spot. What do you think?
