RHOP Recap: Ashley & Katie Face Off + Karen & Gizelle Clash in the Cayman Islands
Robyn is upset with Gizelle.
Gizelle spends time with her daughters.
She tells them she’s going to the Cayman Islands with Robyn and the rest of the ladies. It’s Robyn’s trip. Everyone is going with the exception of Monique, who can no longer travel so far into her pregnancy.
In a green screen interview, Robyn says she wants an apology from Gizelle for causing drama at her open house event.
She really feels like Gizelle was out of line.
Katie is on shaky ground with Ashley.
Ashley catches up with Michael.
She tells him she’s going on the trip and it’s the first time she’s seen her since she heard about what she said about Ashley and Michael. At this point, Ashley feels like Katie stabbed her in the back since they had been spending so much time together.
Monique heads to the chiropractor with Karen.
She’s done this during all of her pregnancies.
This isn’t a comfortable thing for Karen to watch. After the chiropractor wraps up, they talk about Gizelle. Karen heard about what Gizelle said about her skipping out a night out in New Orleans to be on Instagram Live. Karen says she was on Live because she was grieving her dad’s death and thanking her fans for support.
So she doesn’t appreciate that Gizelle had an issue. Both Monique and Karen think Gizelle was out of line to cause drama at Robyn’s open house event.
Karen thinks this proves Gizelle hasn’t really changed and her therapy isn’t working.
It’s the day of the trip.
Robyn is late to the airport and everyone wonders where she is.
She ends up missing the flight.
When the other women get to the Grand Cayman, they get on a bus to get to the hotel. On the way, Gizelle makes fun of Katie’s wig. She asks her if it’s dead. In a green screen interview, Karen says Gizelle needs to worry about her own wig because she’s been wearing the same “dry” wig for “two years.”
When they get to the hotel, Robyn FaceTimes Ashley and tells them her plans for the trip. She and Ashley are going to share the Presidential Suite. Robyn wanted to do this considering all the drama Ashley has been having.
Gizelle and Karen are to share the same room.
Karen and Gizelle clash.
Minutes later, Karen brings up what she heard Gizelle said in New Orleans. The two women start arguing.
Karen accuses Gizelle of being phony and Gizelle says Karen is using her dad’s death as an excuse for why she didn’t want to go out on this particular night during the New Orleans trip.
Candiace reminds them both that they are arguing in the hotel lobby in front of people.
“I just can’t stand this monkey a*s girl because you’re a liar.” – Karen
Gizelle walks away and heads to the front desk to change her room. She says that it’s messed up that Karen is accusing her of not respecting her parents’ deaths.
Ashley is ready to confront Katie.
While out on the beach, Gizelle asks Ashley when she’s going to confront Katie. Ashley says it’s messed up what Katie said about her and Michael. And Katie’s boyfriend Jacob is only going along with what was said because Katie pays his bills.
She tells Gizelle she’s been trying really hard to be friends with Katie.
Ashley is so angry that it’s hard to be in the same room as her.
Katie and Ashley face off.
Later that day, the women reconvene on the beach to watch the sunset.
Ashley says Katie has been lying. She then confronts her for saying Michael tried to hit on her boyfriend Jacob.
“You said Michael was gay.” – Ashley
“So what? I didn’t say anything about you.” – Katie
When Ashley says that Katie called her stupid, Katie denies this. Gizelle then steps in and says Katie said this.
They then argue about Katie telling everyone that Ashley and Michael no longer own their restaurant, which Ashley says is false.
Ashley gets fed up and tells Katie to worry about the man she moved into her house to take care of financially after two months.
Katie then says at least she didn’t have to marry an 80-year-old.
Ashley claps back and says that Katie would if she could and she needs to stop trying to hide away from adulthood on her farm.
The women go to dinner.
Gizelle brings up her issues with Karen. She apologizes for the comments she made about Karen’s Instagram Live session.
Karen accepts her apology but makes it clear she won’t forget.
Then Ashley and Katie’s conflict is discussed. Gizelle tells Katie that Ashley is hurt because she thought they were friends.
But Katie says she didn’t do anything differently than anyone else in the group. They have all called Michael gay. And she doesn’t really think Ashley has any real friends. Plus, the talk about Michael isn’t new.
Katie says she is Ashley’s friend and just because Ashley wasn’t there when she said what she did doesn’t mean she was talking about Ashley behind her back.
At this point, the women begin to laugh.
Things worsen between Katie and Ashley.
They make it back to the hotel and Robyn finally arrives. She is greeted by everyone.
They go outside and have cocktails. Robyn hands everyone cards with thank you messages she wrote.
Katie ends up calling Ashley stupid, again. Ashley gets fed up and says that Katie isn’t funny and her “toupee” looks awful. She then says Katie is not mentally strong enough to be in the group.
At this moment, Katie gets emotional and says that her life is a mess as she battles for custody of her children. But if people don’t want to be around her because of that, then “f” them.
