Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap: Brandi Glanville Watches Eddie And LeAnn’s New Show & The Ladies Say GoodBye! [Episodes 9]

Posted on Jan 14 2015 - 12:21am by BeachSpin

RHONJ

​”The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” begins with Lisa catching us up on what her son Max has been up to. Music college has been a bust, and Max struggles with confidence and an ambitious  spirit, so Lisa has plunked him into Sur, because at least he isn’t lying around saying “I can’t” all day.  It’s time to make it on his own, and being dropped into an environment of 30 somethings acting like oversexed high schoolers will surely bring the “YES I can!” out of this unmotivated young man. Lisa reminds us in the same breath of her dazzling gem of a daughter, Pandora, who is pretty much the opposite of a Sur employee in every way. 

RHONJ

The Umanskys are traveling to Arizona to drop Alexia off at college and lucky for us, the pre-blubber fest has already started. Kyle wants to let Alexia spread her wings, as long as she makes sure to come home for her weekly laundry lesson accompanied by a side of sniffle time. Kyle feels secure, because she knows that if anything goes wrong with her beloved daughter, the Tuscon police will tweet an SOS, and she can jump on one of her luxury private jets and be by her side in a flash. Kyle hates that she didn’t go to college, and squarely blames her mother for forcing her to be a quasi-famous child actress instead of back staging her into law school.

RHOBH

We skip across the country where Yo and Bella are unloading her junk at her new NYC pad.  Yolanda feels insecure about letting Bella go, blows her a kiss, and secretly hopes that her amazing daughter doesn’t turn and wink at the camera then rush to befriend the first 21 year old that crosses her path.

Back in Cali, Brandi has broken out her best grimy look for a meeting with her lawyer. Eddie wants a hefty refund, claiming that he overpaid child and spousal support. Brandi wants Eddie to get a job already so they can all sit around and eat a motherfu**in’ Thanksgiving dinner and be done with it. The timer goes off on her smart phone and she scampers away before the pro can charge her for another 15 minutes….fingers crossed that it’s in the direction of a shower.

RHONJ

We sit in on a family dinner at Eileen’s, highlighted by a special guest appearance of Gigi Hadid’s prom date, and it’s a cute scene. Back at Bella’s pad, Yolanda is arranging the furnishings, fur rugs, and accessories, while Bella is nowhere to be seen.  Back in Arizona, Kyle and the family meet up with Farrah, check into the hotel, while

Kyle continues to whine, cry, and ramble on about leaving Alexia, who is  off having fun, away from the clingy misery.

RHOBH

Lisa Rinna is headed to an acting gig, and she is excited because she loves to do anything, especially when you get a check. She launches into a startling series of voice exercises, her lips take over the screen, and it is a bit frightening.  Penn Gillette has summoned her to the harrowing task of playing Harry Hamlin’s wife, and because she loves being an actress, she is all over the challenge. Lisa believes that it’s really weird to act in a non porny way with her own husband, and doesn’t appreciate being type-cast as herself.

RHOBH

Back in NYC, Bella arrives home to a perfectly staged apartment, and presents her mom with a letter of apology for her drunken whoopsie.  It is sweet, but I found it odd to do it on camera, and half expected Yo to look at the camera and say “SEE!  I TOLD you she was perfection!” Hopefully this will put an end to all of Yolanda’s endless ultimate mother parenting lectures.

RHOBH

Brandi is hosting a girls/guys night in to watch her ex-hub’s reality show debut. She scoffs and giggles while she describes the marriage reality show premise, clearly fighting off a clenched twitch. Pal, Jennifer and Brandi’s favorite groggy, cast mate arrive to join in the punishing fun. Kim is wearing her best Laugh In inspired jumpsuit for this special occasion, as they settle in on Brandi’s bed (shudder!) to watch the show and snark about the couple’s pathetic teeth brushing. Brandi gripes about being mentioned and bashed so often, but isn’t able to hide a spontaneous “YES!” cheerleader arm pump in the middle of one of her complaining rants. Kim comments that it can’t be easy to watch your ex and his new wife play house, unless creative control over casting is allowed. Brandi hopes that Eddie does well so that she can spend more than a measly grand on groceries each week.

RHOBH

Back at Vanderpump Central, Ken and Lisa are celebrating 32 years of puppies and roses, and it’s all pink and adorable.  Max shows up and frustrates the couple with his obvious immaturity, forcing Ken to leave the room before he blows. Max is struggling and still learning, and is apparently cool to do so with no electricity. Ken and Lisa want him to learn the restaurant business from the inside out, and maybe even learn to register and insure the cars he drives.

Back in Arizona, Kyle has crossed over the border into crazy town as she wonders how her wise beyond her years daughter will manage a simple airport, how in the world $1800 a month will be enough to pay for manicures, and wait….WHY did she never become a lawyer again? We thankfully jump back into sanity where Lisa R is hosting a jewelry party to benefit a cancer foundation. The jewelry is sorta ugly and even worse, void of big fat diamonds, and Lisa is worried that the blingless baubles might not fly with her wealthy friends. Lisa cleverly remarks that one of the necklaces is “fancy”, which is always my go-to compliment for gaudy awful.

Back at Eileen’s, we learn that she never went to college either, but enjoys living the experience through her stepsons.  She appears to be infinitely more level headed than Kyle, and as a bonus, it appeared that she was wearing one of those ‘fancy’ necklaces in her talking head.

RHOBH

The melodramatic and torturous goodbyes between Kyle,  Mauricio and Alexia finally end and I am beyond relieved.  Here’s hoping that we never see RHOBH: College Edition again, because it was a gigantic boring snooze.  It looks like we are headed for a mini smackdown next week so I’ll see you on the front row!

  • mytwocents

    This is one of the last HW franchises that I still love. It goes by so fast when forwarding thru the Richard’s sister’s scenes every week. I so wish it was longer.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      I love the show too

    • itsjustme

      Mine too. I just wish I could have stuck to my guns and not watch this season because of Brandi. I vowed after last season I wouldn’t watch if she was on. But, the draw of Queen Lisa and the new women was just too much.

    • Wendy Owen

      what’s great this season is seeing two new seemingly sane women reacting to the insane bitches! love it!

    • Birdie

      Last night’s epi was SO Kyle heavy, you probably were done in 15 minutes. Hopefully that won’t happen again, EVER!

    • MorningYawn

      I did that to Brandi last night… Whatevs!

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    all this crying over kids going off to college is not normal….or is it……Kim and Kyle cry about anything and Yolanda just needs to move in with Bella and enjoy the apartment she decorated……can you image the rent Yo is paying for the girls apartments

    • RonnieIsBack

      I agree..it seems almost cult-ish…

    • Birdie

      It’s normal to feel sad, a little weird to blast every insecure and irrational fear all over TV. It’s also weird and delusional to think America cares to listen to such boring and repetitive drivel.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Personally I know I will be a wreck when my son goes off to college – he will have no choice but to leave home as we live in the countryside and he’s my only kid. BUT if I had the money that Yolanda and Kyle have to set him up with his own accommodation and the luxury of not having to work so I could visit him any time I wanted and for how long I wanted, then it would certainly not be as big a wrench I think.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        true…..they have nothing to cry about

        • Bad Barbie

          Really? Their motherly love for their children is “nothing”. Jesus!

      • Bad Barbie

        I am sure the same void you will feel about your child leaving the nest is the same void any other good mother feels. Regardless of wealth. A mother’s love is a mother’s love.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Oh of course a mom’s love is a mom’s love – money doesn’t change that. But I do think it surely must make the wrench a little less painful knowing you can just fly down there any time you want at the drop of a hat.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        better college than war

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Absolutely and as much as I will miss him around the place I certainly don’t want to see him stick around here. I want him to go off and experience what the world has to offer.

    • Bad Barbie

      Have you sent off any of your kids to college, yet? Just wondering. Shoot! Even Pre-K is hard. These are milestones in a kids life.

      It is very normal. I have seen my mom do it. All the other moms standing at the dorm’s parking lot. I did when my first born left last year. My aunts, cousins and friends do it. Yep! Even the rich and famous do it.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        yes college and a son to war and cried but nothing like these helicopter moms…….it’s part of being a parent you give them life and set them free

        • Bad Barbie

          So you could relate but bash them for their feelings. Ok, gotcha’.

          • Susan Thorne Zavagli

            not bashing…I think it is overly played out….thats all…..they have every right to feel sad

    • Wendy Owen

      They kill me with this bs. While middle America can barely afford college, these bitches are crying for the camera when they’re rich enough to fly back and forth every weekend. My heart bleeds cherry Kool-Aid for Kyle and Yo.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        tell me about it……these kids have it made……they appear nice on tv and I bet they are spoiled rotten brats off camera……Lisa did a nice job of enabling Max…..now he makes appearances for the money I’m sure….Ken is so disgusted with the looser son he can’t even stomach the conversation…..

    • MorningYawn

      My mom told me that only 2 times in her life was she speechless- when her dad died and when she sent my sis (1st born) off to college. (I think she was hella ready to get rid of me – lol – middle child syndrome!) but I did get teary at the goodbye and I will be a nightmare wreck when my kids go. I thought it was real.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Thanks for the recap Beach! I just cannot get over Brandi taking umbrage at Eddie and LeAnn mentioning her on their show when she has made an entire career out of them. She’s really vying with OC Vicki for Most Hypocritical HW title. Haven’t we heard her since her fist episode on the show talk about how she wants to provide for her and her boys and never be dependent on a man? But now she’s earning money she seems to think Eddie should keep paying for her lifestyle.

    • Wendy Owen

      LOL! And $1,000 per month??? Don’t most single mothers make due on a couple of hundred bucks per month from the ex, if they’re lucky?

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        She’s claiming on twitter that her weekly grocery bill is $700 because she has two hungry boys who eat all day and good food is expensive! I have seen her also on twitter vying for a cookbook deal by posting her cheap soup recipes that she claims they cook all the time. Perhaps her other recipes are for Lobster bisque with caviar.

        • Bad Barbie

          I wouldn’t doubt it if she is feeding them organic food, gluten free, etc. Shyte. I go food shopping for regular poor people food and in few bags is $200+ . Food aint cheap!

        • RonnieIsBack

          That bish is lying…her azz only feeds them mac n cheese and chicken nuggets…
          That is her Xanax money and booze fund..

      • Bad Barbie

        He must hold the award for the cheapest dad in Hollywood then. That is $125 a kid perweek. There are average dudes in NY that pay 17% of their middle class income paying more than Eddie.

        That may be a lot if the kids are hardly with her though.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Brandi is a stalker heaux who believes her own hype.
    Eileens’s step son Duke is FINE AS HELL! DAYUM!
    I cannot wait to see the smackdown between the two drunks Kim and Brandi and Kyle getting caught and pushed in the middle….
    #WhenCrackHeauxsAttack
    Again Sophia (Kyle’s lost middle child) is beginnign to be my fave..she always has the “I give this many phucks” on her face LOLOLOL…

    • Wendy Owen

      ROTFLMFAO!!! So true!

    • ♥♥♥ Tigerlily ·.¸¸.·*¨·.·.¸¸.

      Sophia has perfected resting-bitch-face! LOL!

      • RonnieIsBack

        YES SHE DOES! I love it!

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      Sophia…….last night Mauricio said now it’s just the three of us….him, Kyle and Porcha…..what happened to Sophia

      • RonnieIsBack

        Which explains her bitchy face….I cannot wait until next year she becomes Paris’ newest sidekick and embarass the family…

    • Bwahahahaha!!!!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap Beach!
    Alexis really will miss Mo…they were balling…Kyle she was all dry eyed like how fast can I get away from her…

    • Birdie

      LMAO…she’s gna fly to Arizona and hold her hand through the challenging task of checking her luggage.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie…who wouldn’t want to STOP discussing an impending heartbreak 24/7? Alexia was so excited she screamed herself voiceless. lol

      • RonnieIsBack

        EXACTLY! And that is the real reason why Kyle was crying….Portia and Alexia had turned up the night before…lol.
        Portia was in bed like bye bish we had fun..see you during break.
        Alexis hugged Mo like “Dad I promise to come back for you..just stay alive, I will find you!”

        • BeachSpin

          HAHAHAHAHA!!! Stay strong Daddyyyyyy!!

  • She Stinks!

    It really is time for the Richards Sisters and Yolanda to hit the road. They bore me to tears. I cannot stop rolling my eyes when that awful Kyle is on screen.

  • Janice Marie

    I thought Alexis’ goodbye with her dad was the sweetest thing ever. I lost my dad when I was 20 and I have to admit – that did me in a little.

    • Bad Barbie

      (hugs) Yeah that was sweet. I got teary.

      • Janice Marie

        xox

    • Sorry for your loss. Xo

      • Janice Marie

        Thank you so much, love. That is very sweet. xoxo

  • Bad Barbie

    Why did Lisa had to mention that Max is not biologically related to her and maybe this is why he is not like them? While this may be true, how you are raised makes up at lot of a person’s fabric. Is this why she has hardly showcases Max? I remember reading that he refused the “spotlight”. I didn’t buy it then and I am not buying it now. I can see Lisa out casting him because he puts a dent in her “perfect image”. He doesn’t sound better put together than many others that she criticizes on this show. SMH

    The kids leaving for college experience is tough. I did it once and have one more to go. *Whaaa! tears*

    Brandy- no comment.

    That was sweet of Bella to give her mom a card and apologizing. These girls are 1% er’s. They have been raised with all things finest, but they do look like cool and humble girls. Hope Bella learned from her mistake and does her parents proud.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yeah, next time Bella is not gonna get caught….
      That girl, and her sister, gets it in like the Bush twins…

      • Bad Barbie

        I have no idea what they get in. lol

        • RonnieIsBack

          That is the urban saying for partying.

          • Bad Barbie

            Trust I am about that life.

  • Whoever told Bravo that each and every week, each and every season, that we want to see kiddies going off to college, they lied. It’s kinda annoying at this point.

    • Wendy Owen

      THANK YOU, MS. BREANNA_MONIQUE!!! I’m so sick of seeing the stupid-ass way these women behave when they finally get their kids out of the house! Why do they cry? There’s one less excuse to interact with their husbands? Oy!

      • I mean, I’m not trying to be mean, but kids go off to college all the time. They’ve essentially turned a maybe 2 episode thing into an entire season worth of boring nothing.

      • Juliana

        I personally was anticipating Bella’s send off and to see if she too got those painted plaques on her walls. Yolanda’s is great but not worth doing twice. I also noticed how dark Bella’s everything was compared to Gigi’s. So there’s that…. lol

    • RonnieIsBack

      Amen! They treat it like the kids are going off to Mars
      or prison…
      All the phuckin tears….enuf!

    • Bad Barbie

      and if they were home being nothing we would be tight too. lol cant win with the audience. At least that is something us mothers/wives can relate to and not all the fake beef with one another.

      • Yeah, it’s authentic, but it’s overdone. Kyle is an actress and I feel she’s overacting. Like very melodramatic. I don’t know if it was just my parents, but I’m in college, and the tears didn’t flow to this extent, like week after week.

        • Bad Barbie

          Maybe they didn’t tell you! They cried a river… lol

          This bs was probably filmed in 2 days. Bravo seems to be out of juicy scenes this season. Next week looks crazy!

          • I would hope so. LOL.

            And what is going on with Kim? Was she snapping on Lisa like that or were they just having a general conversation? And Brandi all but assaulted Kyle.

          • Bad Barbie

            You know they trump up these scenes then when you watch it you’re like WTF that was it?

          • Right. Hopefully it’s as good as it looks from the previews and not another bait and switch.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      Kyle didn’t carry on near as bad as when Farrah left for school……oh well the kids are in college so what are we going to cry about next……Kim becoming a Granny thats worth nine months of tears

      • That’s what I’m saying. Kyle is too melodramatic for my liking, but I suppose next week we go back to her playing teams, being a manipulator, and sitting back and pretending her hands are clean. As for Kim, I honestly forgot she was even on this show.

  • italiano bambino

    i haven’t seen the show for 3 weeks already so far im staying with Atlanta.. but Idk i still like drunki imight watch it next week

  • Trippinhhard

    Great recap I keep forgetting to watch it.. Poor Brandi it’s time to leave Eddie and LeAnn alone.. It’s a done deal, he didn’t want you anymore, who can blame him..

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Trippin’! You need to catch up!!

  • Wendy Owen

    Well, now we know at least 5 people watched LeAnn and Eddie. How did I miss it? **yawn**

  • Birdie

    Brandi was basking in the shout outs Eddie and LeAnn were throwing her…puh-leeze…she LOVED it, and was stifling a huge grin through the whole thing.

    • Wendy Owen

      Yes! At least someone was talking about her!

    • RonnieIsBack

      And I saw the episode..they were basically saying Brandi was a nutbag and desperate…it was funny as hell…and that she tweets and writes about THEM hourly.

  • Wendy Owen

    Wahhhhhhh! My adult kid is going to have her own fully furnished apartment and the funds to fly back home constantly while other kids are using milk crates for furniture! Wahhhhhhhhh!

  • Wendy Owen

    Being adopted, here’s my take on the Max thing. Nurture’s only half of it. He doesn’t have the drive the rest of them do; it’s just a fact. You can try to pretend there’s no difference between genetic kids and adopted kids, but there is. And as far as Lisa talking about the fact that he’s not genetically related — bravo! Let’s stop pretending that dumping kids into a family magically works.

    • Birdie

      AMEN Wendy! I think Lisa addressed the huge elephant in the room…good for her.

      • Wendy Owen

        totally! people are unrealistic thinking that adopting is going to magically make the kid like you – ain’t gonna happen and best you can do is just love whomever they turn out to be – even if it’s not like you. max ain’t never gonna be a mover and shaker like moms.

        • Wendy Owen

          Makes a good case for open adoptions so kids can know where they came from instead of growing up wondering why they can’t fit in with the family!

    • RonnieIsBack

      I definitely believe in the Nature vs Nurture thing also. But I also feel that a person isn’t necessarily born with great work eithic…either you want to be self-made or you don’t. I have a bunch of lazy azz cousins and it baffles me bc my family are extremely hard workers, including their parents. Max sees all the wealth and he is like phuck it…I’d rather be a server and have a suga mama…

      • Birdie

        LOL! Truth…lots can factor in. But if Lisa didn’t address it, it would look odd. i wish we could get a glimpse of his cougar girlfriend….

        • RonnieIsBack

          LOL I guarantee you she looks EXACTLY LIKE MUMMY!
          That would be hilarious….A younger version of Lisa…watch…

          • BeachSpin

            O-M-G! I gotta see!!!

          • Juliana

            Oh Ronnie you have no idea, my son is engaged to me! I told him that he was dating me, girl even resembles me physically, yikes! I’m not as shady as she is though, so there are some big differences between us in that respect. But it’s weird he probably is dating Mummy, lol.

        • Bad Barbie

          Is it him or Ken’s son that is with someone that is Lisa’s age and friend?

          • BeachSpin

            I think that’s Ken’s son…I believe that Max’s gf is in her 30s.

          • Bad Barbie

            Thanks! so then his gf is not a cougar if they are in the same age range.

          • BeachSpin

            Max is in early 20s. There is a definite cougar factor…maybe not a super dramatic one…but it’s there.

          • Bad Barbie

            I thought she said he was almost 30 last night. Then yeah she is a puma. LMAO

          • BeachSpin

            LOLOL!! I think he’s around 23.

          • Juliana

            I got chased by a guy who was 23 and I was 29, lol. But what it really should have been is a one night stand, but turned into a 2 year one night stand. That’s the only reason I kept him around.

          • BeachSpin

            LMAO…23 might as well be 18, but I’m sure it was fun, Juliana!! ;D

      • Bad Barbie

        I totally agree with about being hard working or lazy.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      ITA. If it was all down to Nurture then surely all kids in one family would have the same work ethics etc but they don’t. One kid might be academically very able but another might be more artistic etc. It’s just how you are born.

    • Bad Barbie

      That kid was dumped into her family when he was a small child. He’s had tons of time to grow up. I agree that he can be genetically wired different than Lisa or maybe even damaged and all but worth ethics are acquired.

  • RonnieIsBack

    And Kyle and Mo giving that kis $1800 a month in college…her room board, books, etc. are all paid for. What the hell doesn’t she need $1800 a month for….oh yeah I forgot, to apply towards a new Prada bag…

    • Wendy Owen

      EXACTLY what I said to my hubby!!! Like, WTF? Didn’t we all have to live on ramen in college????

    • Birdie

      For manicures and a $15 a meal allowance. She needs to live like a queen.

      • RonnieIsBack

        heheh…well I am sure Kyle only wants her to eat $15 worth of food..doesn’t want the little angel gaining the freshman 15…

    • MorningYawn

      I had $500 of my own savings per semester for spending $ and things like manicures. Even if you double that for the 20 year difference, still almost half of what she gets a month. I did get $125/ month in food money from my parents, so maybe I’m Nickle and dining here… Not!

      • Bad Barbie

        Then again $500 for this kid is a manicure and blow out. Different tax brackets. That’s the luxury of having wealthy Hollywood parents. I am more surprised at the fact that these rich kids are going to college, period. Her nieces may have skipped that and still made millions. Unreal.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      they got her a apartment and I’m sure it is not just a apartment….the place is probably pimped out to the max……Kyle probably hired Faye Resnick to decorate

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Great recap, Beach! Kyle was absurd last night. I have a close relationship with my parents, and maybe they teared up a little when they dropped me off a college, but they weren’t hysterical like idiotic Kyle. Brandi was pathetic watching Eddie’s show and I can’t stand those two.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Reality!…any parent can understand her feelings…but good grief, the blathering self centered rants were a bit much. What happened to putting Alexia first and expressing more excitement for the new adventure she was experiencing? I’m sure it was quite encouraging to watch her mother blubber for an hour last nite,

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Well said, Beach! I love your recaps.

        • BeachSpin

          Awww…thanks so much! 🙂

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      Kyle cries over a hang nail she is annoying same goes for Kim….Kathy is nothing like them no wonder she appears once in a blue moon

  • MorningYawn

    Very impressed that the über rich VP/ Todd’s did not give Max $ when his lights got turned off, made him wash dishes and work his way up, etc. love that they want him to learn the whole biz inside and out and work for it. And wow the candor to say “maybe Jason is stepping Ito shoes that were meant for Max.” That’s gotta be a wake up call!! I wonder if Jason ever washed dishes for LVP.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I was impressed with it also. Ken and his big stomach LOL..I love him..was like phuck this chit, if ya don’t work ya don’t eat…

      • MorningYawn

        Oh! The Jason pandy visual! Lol Ronnie! I noticed kens belly as well. Wonder what he thought when he saw that on tv. I think he was about ready to lose his mind on max. Better get out before I go bonkers on national tv.. Or pop a button on my shirt!

      • Bad Barbie

        lMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooo I cant with you.

    • Susan Thorne Zavagli

      she asked him if he got the check……what check….for doing what…….he is spoiled

      • MorningYawn

        Perhaps… But from what she said, it could be worse.

  • Susan Thorne Zavagli

    I feel sad for Lisa Renna’s parents …..take them to live with you and be with family the last years of their lives..not in Death Valley…I don’t get it

    • Bad Barbie

      I know right! Then again, old folks don’t like to be taken out of their element so who knows what the deal is there. I know that if I ever win the lotto the first thing that I am doing is making my mom as comfortable as Momma Joyce. LOL and my granny too.

      • Susan Thorne Zavagli

        I get it……old folks do not like change…..in this case where there is money hire a staff to care for them and the home…..sorry but the nursing home thing creeped me out

      I relate to lisa r in this situation. While my mom is like her mom with memory loss, dad is still dong great. I live out of state like lisa. If anything happened to dad, I would not bring them here because I love them. She would still want the normalcy of her church, visits from friends, etc. she is not familiar with my house and, on a visit last month, was very confused. They need ease and normalcy at this time. It is heartbreaking and you are helpless. But as Trippin reminded me last time we chatted about this, I’m lucky to have them both. Heading up to see them in 2 weeks, can’t wait.
