I think I’ve said it in previous weeks, but going from Heather Gay expressing her religious trauma caused by Mormonism to Emily baptizing her daughter as a Mormon is jarring.
There was a post shared on the exmo subreddit awhile ago regarding the whole baptism storyline before the season aired, you can find it easily by searching for “real housewives” on there. But basically it said something about how they were going to film some female missionaries teaching Anabelle about Mormonism but some producers were unsure of whether or not it was a good idea (I’m just summarizing from memory).
I think it’s also important to note that the reason children are baptized at 8 years old is because baptism in Mormonism is supposed to be a “choice” and they decided that 8 is the age when children are allowed to make such an important choice lol. When she asked Shane what would happen if she didn’t “want to be baptized anymore” and he was like “ahh forget about it, they’ll tell you later” I think that really highlighted the issue with the concept of 8 year olds being able to make this kind of decision of their own free will lol.
Omg so so accurate
Can’t imagine a guy being married to a doctor ?!? TERRY WHAT YEAR DO YOU LIVE IN
Yeah Terry, and I can’t imagine my husband having a pillow face, yet here we are.
He lives in year “up his own ass”
I feel like this dinner is revealing a lot about their relationship, and it differs from Jen’s sob story the last couple of episodes.
This was so hard to watch. I think they are both volatile together. Like oil and vinegar. Just creepy okaaaaay
I'm starting to think that she made up the "Ryne" thing and didn't even tell him
“Rhyne, like the rhyne of an orange”… 🧐
This was my exact thought. There is way more to the story than what Jen has said.
It almost seems like she doesn’t let him speak bc she’s been lying about a lot
From what’s come out, I feel like she’s a bit of a Braunwyn. A lot of exaggerations and half truths. Not sure how they redid this season and the two new girls are both the same profile.
this is like that one dinner scene in titanic where leonardo dicaprio has to pretend hes a rich yuppie
Omg this is spot on 🤣🤣🤣
First thing I thought when ryne used the napkin was this is 90% how I use mine when eating 🤣
It wasn’t classy of Heather to make a big deal of it. And I say that as Heather stan.
Terry is just so intrigued by Ryne 🤣 just looking at him like he’s a staring at a two-headed snake or something
Think that’s just the injections
Imagine being sober and listening to these people
Wait is it just me or does the other couple at the dinner party look like a bootleg version of Kelly Dodd and her husband
I thought it was Kelly at first!
Her face looks like Vicki to me - she’s like a hybrid of her and Kelly
This is the most embarrassing thing I’ve seen on housewives in a while.
Does Ryne know this is like an intervention? It’s a little insulting to him, no matter how odd he is. Like “here, look at these people, you should be more like them.”
This is probably why he’s so uncomfortable lol 😂
We all realize if this was a female brought by her doctor husband to see how to act more “appropriate” we would have pitch forks, right?
Not Ryne talking more to the driver than to the other people at the party
I’m dying at this rando screaming “I LOVE HUMOR”
Lmao Ryan just really doesn’t like being on TV. This is making sense now.
John looks like Blake Shelton and old school Al Gore had a baby
Ryne is awkward but things are starting to make more sense… 11 episodes in
He’s less awkward than his wife
I can't help but wonder if he's trolling the rich folk. Sometimes it *seems* like he knows what to do, how to act, how to dress, but he purposefully shifts it to something odd just to get reactions, because he knows all the rich folk want to be *proper*.
We all know the Dubrow’s are going to send Jen and Ryne home and then the real dinner party will begin where they’re going to talk all about that weird couple.
Ya called it
What in The Lion King beauty pageant is this prom dress?!
My husband thinks Ryne’s problem is Jen’s drinking. Thoughts?
There was a blind that seemed to be about these two that alleged that Jen is addicted to opiates and that’s why Rind packed his bags and left last episode.
Then in the lawsuit that was filed against Jen recently, a former employee alleged that Jen had called in an opiate prescription IN THE EMPLOYEES NAME and picked it up. So opiate abuse seems likely, especially given her pain issues with her leg.
It would seem it’s the opiate addiction that he is upset by, which makes her get drunk really quickly, not the alcohol by itself. At one point during the dinner when he got up, it looked almost like he was tearing up, seems like he has just reached his limit with Jen.
Purely speculation but that’s my theory. So not far off from yours honestly!
It would explain why he doesn’t drink.
But he’s never drank before at all, so he had that prior to meeting her. Her drinking definitely makes him uncomfortable
“I’ll take the Shannon booth, please”
- Me at Quiet Woman
THIS ISNT MY PLATE!!!!!
"Wait til you taste the 2013"
Um - maybe it's best that she doesn't.
Love how Heather says in her confessional Jen is hammered but is essentially offering Jen more wine lol.
“I don’t need a stack of vaginas either, Shane
I cracked up because it didn't really go with what they were talking about. Like he was just sitting there thinking about that stack of vaginas and then blurted out- I don't need a stack of vaginas! It's more likely that they've been joking around about it but I prefer my imaginary scenario.
When I tell you I would die if I were Rind.
Orange you glad you're not Rind
This is the best comment of the night
Did he just ask him about heroin?
What if he was like no booze, weed, coke, but heroin?? Yes.
good god Jen is SO wasted
good god how have these two stayed married for more than approx 6 months
Ryne seems like he would rather lose a finger than have to stay at this dinner party.
Ryne is perpetually like a Sim when you cancel its action, like he doesn't know how to walk through the door, how to make small talk, how to sit...
Archie jumps in the pool \~ true star of the show!!
Ryne ain’t the best but I wish this dinner party would end for his sake
These people are so not his vibe and I feel so bad for him.
Cornering the guy at your snobby dinner party. This isn’t going to help their marriage.
Shannon’s twins are gorgeous
Idk why but i love Shannon’s kids. They seem really funny and smart
So this scene is just an infomercial for the dubrow’s new spinoff show ?
Was that friend of Noella’s animated? Like now we’re at CGI housewives?
Maybe Ryne doesn’t wear shirts because he doesn’t want to get them dirty 🤔
Remember when David sent Shannon an email saying he was thinking about leaving and then Tamra told Heather who then told a table full of people in a restaurant where David was also eating?
David wasn't there. It was the mistress and/or a friend of the mistress that was at the table who then told David who subsequently started angrily texting Shannon.
S9 was peak RHOC
Lately, when I see the name Jen on anything Housewives I have to really stop and think 🤔 which Jen 😆 too many Jen’s, Jennifer’s, Jenny’s
A racist, a scammer, a doctor, and the lady with the biggest house in Paramus walk into a bar….
Translation: Gina’s wardrobe is cheap trash so Heather is itching to rectify the situation. Bibbidi bobbidi boo, bitch.
What was that jean jacket
damn jen is kind of an asshole
I think Jen getting wasted is so selfish when she knows ryne is uncomfortable being there. If that were my partner, I’d be pissed.
“I love humor” - Tawnie
Live Laugh Love
This is sooo uncomfortable.
Is this Dinner for Schmucks? What’s happening
Going to invite Heather to my one bedroom apartment. She’ll probably write a charitable donation on her way out
Emily’s drinking so much this season
did ryne get up to go to the bathroom and they just cut it out, or did he literally just CTRL+X himself from this table??
Edit: oh he did
Oh we introverts are masters of the “Irish goodbye”
*subtly exits stage left*
Ryne is truly just a simple guy who wants to live on the beach in Hawaii
Ryne and Mr. Braunwyn sipping daiquiris and checkin out sweet pendants
I do not like Dr. Jen, she puts Ryne down and treats him like he’s an idiot and speaks for him. Of course he would act like a child when mommy does everything for him and then demeans him for it.
Also, dude has never had a job. Ever. When terry said “she met her perfect person” and Ryne or whatever said “tell her that,” I cringed. She wants more than he can give. Dude changed his name for … why? HOWEVER, my attitude definitely changed after tonight. She was drinking to fit in, feel comfortable, numb her pain. He was so uncomfortable, I felt so bad for him too. She knows this isn’t his element. That’s why she “praised” him on the way home - “you did so good.” He’s not your dog Jen. BUT again, at the same time, he’s never worked and has a nanny??? Idgi
I kind of get the feeling she was attracted to him physically and nothing more. He went for the ride early on but her idea was to change him into what she wanted him to be and he obviously didn’t go along.
I started thinking this when they tried to have their 1:1 with the dog in his hands
Lmao did Shannon just find out that multiple orgasms are a thing? Because if so, good for her.
Omg I feel bad for Ryne
Gina is so effing annoying. It’s apparently okay for her to say Shannon is jealous but she gets pissed that Shannon supposedly said she toots her own horn. No one is jealous of Gina.
Nooooo one wants to be her
My mom (doesn’t know this sub exists) just text me “I think Terry is coming off a little strong. No drinking! Cocaine?! Heroin!?!”
Jen is just beyond sloshed, Ryne is so reserved, wtf is going on
Ryne tucked his napkin into his shirt like a goddamn bib. At a Dubrow dinner party. This is fucking wild.
Dr Jen lost me after white LV sunglasses and breakfast buffet
I feel like we’re at a marriage intervention and Rind was not prepared.
Tawnie is like escort banker on the top and equestrian hooker on the bottom. It’s a look…
Just need to point out, not even Gina is talking about her skincare line.
I seriously cannot believe she’s coming out with a skincare line. That is such an over saturated market and not an original idea at all. It’s so boring, just like Gina.
Heather. She needs water
What type of host intentionally makes someone, who clearly is introverted and uncomfortable in social settings, be put in the spotlight and answer a question? Lady, he doesn’t want to talk about it and he’s at least the only part of this duo acting appropriate right now so leave him and his bib alone.
The kind who knows they’re there to make a TV show.
Is this woman.... in STIRRUP PANTS + STILETTOS?!
Jen is definitely a one season wonder
Maybe not wonder but one and done
Give the quiet woman an orange
Jen and Ryne are exhibiting almost Kenya and Marc levels of mutual loathing
I THOUGHT NANCY WAS KELLY DODD
🥴 “And thaannnn he was liikeee willll yoooo marry mayyy” 🥴
This awkward dinner is what I needed from this show
This is top-tier cringe. I am so happy right now.
You did awesome? He didn’t take a spelling test Jen
“I’ve already had 2 glasses of champagne” - me before every 8 AM Zoom call
Terry went “so you’ve never had alcohol before, but what about hard drugs like coke and heroin?”
Is Ryne okay?
Jen and Rein whatever his name is are like aliens trying to integrate with humans
Ryne hates his life so much rn ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|flushed)
It's a shame because there's a lot I like/ find relatable about Gina, but her constant sucking up to Heather and trying to stir the pot with Shannon is so off putting.
She is trying way too hard to be relevant and in the mix and it's not fund to watch.
Heather, if you knew anything about marriage counseling as you seem to think you do, then you would understand why Ryne gets more introverted the more drunk Jen gets. He is obviously uncomfortable and embarrassed, this is not the first time this has happened with them.
Why did I think OC was taking another week off?
I don’t know why, I can’t take Heather’s “marital problems” about onion rings seriously.
So first Heather is Gina’s lifestyle coach and now she is Jen’s couples counselor
So is jen mixing her benzos with her wine? When she kept repeating the same thing i was like DING DING DING
John speaking the truth. Gina needs to give it up already with Shannon, she’s not that bad. I don’t understand why she goes so hard at her
Ryne might just be reacting to what it’s like to see Terrys face IRL
I feel so bad for Ryne now. As an introvert being put on the spot in front of people I don't know would make me want to crawl under the table.
I was just about to say this. I can be *very* introverted and have social anxiety. I'm glad my boyfriend is the total opposite, I can count on him to carry the convo lol
They could have asked Ryne about being a professional gambler, that’s very unique and I think most people would find it interesting. It would have been a way to include him in the conversation
""Gina needs her clothes to reflect all those changes"
As she stands there in a high waisted/ cropped purple sweatsuit.
"That's for a Western day"
"You mean like a costume?" 💀
I’m sorry, but Ryne is hilarious.
“Ryne like an orange rine” it’s a rind isn’t it 🍊?
Honestly I think Ryne is just shy/slow and Jen is terrible to him.
If I was Ryne I’d take my dog and walk away too
HEATHER'S REACTION TO THE TOAST 😭
I don’t know what producer decided Heather was a relationship expert. They waste an episode promoting a marriage counseling show.
And watching Heather posing as a fashionista party planner and all around humanitarian.
I am cringing at Jen.
Oh sis. Don’t be gossiping about their marriage problems after they leave.
Heather is a bad host
I feel bad they’re all laughing at Ryne
yeah I had that feeling as well? I mean he doesn't seem like the greatest but he seems just sooo uncomfortable here
Things I’ll never say at my girls wine night: wait until you taste the 2013
Things I WILL say at my next girls wine night: this one was only $9
This segment is like *What Not to Wear*.
We need a federal investigation to spice up the OC, this is getting boring.
The Quiet Woman is a historical Bravo monument at this point.
Someone toasting to women's underwear at Heather's classy dinner party 😂
Omggg the napkin bib is the best part of this episode
Ryne is in such a difficult place right now, I feel bad for him.
HEATHER don't make it even more embarrassing for Jen by telling them her business
Poor Ryan didn't know he was invited to dinner for schmucks
Ryne is smart for not saying anything cause drunk ass Jen is gonna patronize him and he obviously can’t do anything right with this crew
Ryne has gone non verbal.
I don’t blame him. He’s sober and may be a bit freaked out
Gina that jumpsuit. What in the Amazon fashion
You know how I know evolution media likes Noella ? She gets the good filter in all her scenes. Heather has to be livid after seeing her restaurant scene and Ginas house compared to Noella’s patio scene
I know everyone in the sub probably thinks her friend looked very fake but I was struck by how beautiful they both looked in that scene.
The reunion should be filmed at The Quiet Woman
Yikes Gina is kinda obnoxious right now.
The way Terry said “woooowwww” sounds like Owen Wilson
Ryne getting ready to go to a clam bake
How the hell does Jen expect ryne to show up for her when she can’t show up for him at an even he’s clearly uncomfortable at and she dragged him to.
Please tell me why I am looking at The Quiet Woman’s menu on Yelp rn
Honestly Terri was right and onion rings would’ve been great with that meal
ALSO HEATHER'S REACTION TO THE NAPKIN 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
This is a dinner party not therapy shessh
I’d prefer a small group of close friends rather than a large group of acquaintances
i prefer my 60 close girlfriends
I feel like Heather is throwing Jen in front of the bus. It has an Ireland cast trip feeling. Over serve her, ask trigger questions, put her testy spouse on the spot - watch her blow up.
“Let’s be honest. They’re a mess” 🤣
Not proud of it, but NGL - I laughed.
Ryne walked out and it was humiliating because you used it as a storyline and told the world. 🤦♀️.
Women that intentionally exploit their marriage problems for stupid notoriety and then cry about it. I can’t !
“confidence is attractive, cockiness is not 😐” periodt!
Im waiting for this to happen
Are these big dinners just a tax write-off for Heather, because they’re work related?
Noooooo to Mormonism. Emily WHY??????
I was just thinking about a former co-worker whose father couldn’t see her get married because he wasn’t allowed in their sacred temple. You’ve got that to look forward to Emily.
That was so gross of Terry at the end.
Yes and the way they all laughed like the rich snobs that they are. Gross.
“Water with vodka or gin”
not Terry laughing hysterically at his own joke
HEATHER IS SPILLING JEN AND RYNE’S MARITAL WOES TO HER RICH FRIENDS.
I listened to the Bravo Docket podcast episode about Dr. Jen and it’s 🤯🤯🤯
Gina needs to get rid of whatever her current outfit is
As a stoned person watching, some of these faces are disturbing
“Bon Apple Tea” - Heather
Jen is hammered and they’re still letting her drink, huh?
Hahaha I love Ryan now
Same here! I don’t think he’s slow - he’s clearly super uncomfortable being filmed and is increasingly wildly uncomfortable as Jen gets drunker.
oh my god oh my god I have so many thoughts about this whole horrific scene but I literally will need to wait until the post-live thread to gather myself into something remotely coherent
I just choked on my water when she said the wine is actually good that last time
"What was really lovely about this, was absolutely nothing. This party was a fucking trainwreck."
Was it known that Ryne doesn't drink at all? I feel like Jen should have mentioned that in advance. No one wants to be interrogated like that immediately after meeting someone ...let alone while being filmed
Can we get Archie on WWHL I'd love to hear what he has to say about literally anything and everything
I'm completely with Shannon on this one. Gina has spent years coming so hard for her for no fucking reason. She's a hater.
