Gina, Emily and Noella arrive at the Cabo sweat lodge for a ceremony none of them seem to understand. The girls’ trip to Mexico continues on this week’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”
They change into swimsuits and then the temazcal guides one by one walk around each of them, releasing them in a puff of incense made from the copal tree.
“I will cleanse your soul, and I will cleanse your heart,” the host informed them.
“Can do two rounds with this,” suggested Gina Kirschenheiter with a nod Noella Berger.
“We’re reborn today,” the host tells them, nodding toward the igloo adobe door. “We’re going into the mother’s belly.”
Emily Simpson, of course, knows you’re not born, or reborn from the womb and makes sure others know the proper anatomical terminology.
The presenter continued: “Present yourself to this womb and tell it what you intend to do here.
Flick forward a few minutes and we’re in a sweaty motel where the temperature is 102 degrees. Noella is crying. Emily notices that “sweat, tears, and snot” are pouring out of her. Gina, well, she’s still Gina.
“I’m just trying to get through this moment,” she said. “I think we’re going to the spa.”
And then, in one of those rare moments when reality TV becomes a reality, Noella faints. The production team ran over and carried her out of the sweaty motel and into a nearby room, where she sobbed.
“I have a headache,” she mumbled.
All three of them were bright red from the heat and humidity, and as Emily described the experience as surreal, as “every trauma and everything that hurt me just floated and popped out”, Gina seemed to cry and laugh at the same time.
“This whole thing is a lot to me,” she said. “My spray sweats. My eyelashes are hanging down from my face. I am very sad for all of you (ladies). ”
Noella is revived and the three agree that they should return to the mansion they are sharing with Heather Dubrow, Shannon Storms Beador and Jen Armstrong, have lunch and lounge by the pool.
About an hour later, Emily and Gina were softly snoring in their double bed in their casita, outside as cold as possible with the highest 90s temperatures outside.
Here’s what else went down this week:
– Shannon notes over dinner that her daughters have yet to meet Noella, but predicts “they’ll love you.” Noella calls herself “Aunt Psycho Pants.”
– Gina, who was assigned by Heather to keep an eye on Noella during the trip, grows increasingly bored with the job.
“I’m trying to help Noella because I care about her,” she said in the confessional. “You see a puppy on the street, I would go up to that puppy and say, ‘Oh my, I feel so bad for you, puppy!’
“And if that puppy comes back and bites you, I’ll like,” (Sleep) you, puppy; Find out for yourself! ‘”
While the lodgers are sweating at the ceremony, Heather invites Shannon and Jen to accompany her on a scouting mission for the Cabo house she wants to buy or build.
First, they stopped at a beachfront mansion with 26,000 square feet of air-conditioned rooms that cost about $13 million to build.
Next, they stop at a huge site with fronts in both the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, listed at $8 million, and it will take just $7 million more to build the getaway. modest 15,000 square feet that Heather envisioned.
Back at the mansion, Emily pours beans on Noella that Heather only invited her on the trip after Gina begged her to do so.
“It’s important for Noella to know what Gina has done and how good a person she is,” Emily said in a confessional.
“What is it, Emily?” Gina spoke to her own camera then.
“Someone had to do it,” Emily continued.
“What (bleep bleep bleep)?” Gina said. “What (BLEEP!)?”
“My name is Emily Simpson and I’m a person (that sucks),” said Emily, smirking.
– Jen, who had to exercise regularly to avoid severe pain after having a bone tumor removed in her leg many years earlier, didn’t get to the mansion’s gym early and was in tears on the treadmill. ellipse when she calls home.
She just wanted some sympathy or confirmation from her husband, Ryne, and Ryne gave a spectacular scream.
“Here’s what I want you to say,” Jen said after Ryne mumbled that tomorrow would be better. “I want you to say, ‘I’m sorry you’ve been in pain all day. I wish I was there to protect you. ‘”
Ryne’s answer will probably be a case study in the school of marriage counseling for years to come.
“I understand, yes,” he replied. “That’s right, honey. I wish for all of that.”
– At the last dinner of the trip, it was inevitable that Noella had told Heather straight out that she didn’t want her on the trip, and Heather countered that Noella had given Heather’s 17-year-old daughter a game of cards. The adult theme is incredibly obvious, as Heather describes it.
They argued back and forth until Heather took out her phone and read some in-game text.
“Insanely inappropriate,” gasped Noella, and brought both hands to her mouth. “I’m terrified.”
