Kandi’s Ski Trip Part Three

Kandi’s Ski Trip Part Three by RamonaCoaster

I think Todd produced this show to showcase these crazy old biddies and a wife who is insouciant to the irrational behavior so that we all witness him say “You see what I have to deal with?” because he’ll need that videotape as a defense of provocation in court when he finally goes over the edge.    He’ll also need Matthew to be a witness for the defense, that is, if Don Juan and Carmon don’t off him first.

I see that Kandi has learned to adapt to her environment by ignoring all the crazy behaviors  but Todd, I can see, isn’t used to it.  He is used to confronting his problems and talking them out.


The ratings for part 2 was 1.644 live + SD which increased from part 1.

Kandi knocks on Mama Joyce’s door so Mama and Carmon can hash out their problems.  Then Kandi promptly leaves.  Seriously?  Someone needs to be the mediator especially after the shoe tossing skirmish and Mama wanting to beat Carmon which would have happened if she hadn’t been physically held back.  Mama says she has never lied about Carmon and Carmon states nothing happened between her and Todd.  Carmon says Mama’s story constantly changes.  Then Mama names the names of all the people that she heard from the streets that were telling the story.  This must be the same street that Aviva heard Carole had a ghostwriter.  Carmon asks why Mama didn’t confront her about the stories she heard especially when Mama has known her since she was a child.  Mama says a man can get drunk and put it in any hole.  Would Carmon let him put it in her hole?  Then Mama starts describing an instance where Kandi was offering her old hair and Mama said she liked the hair and Carmon says she wants her hair.  This is totally unrelated to the alleged affair that Mama says Carmon and Todd had.  Mama is not able to connect the dots between the hair incident and the alleged affair unless she has a list of grievances and she is getting revenge.  The voices escalate.  Carmon says she doesn’t want the situation to intensify until something happens like Sharon passing away and Mama will be really sorry for making up stories.  Kandi finally comes in and breaks up the fight.  Kandi says there is no reason to be mad.  Kandi admits that leaving them alone to resolve their problems was stupid.  Mama wants Carmon to take a lie detector test.  Kandi says her mama wants everyone to take a lie detector test.  Carmon leaves because there is no talking to Mama.  Guilty until proven innocent is Mama Joyce’s motto.  Stick with your lie is another of her mottos.


Todd comes in and Mama says she is okay with Todd because he is a man and a man will not do more than what a woman lets him.  It’s not surprising that Mama has such a low opinion of men.  He swears on his mother’s grave that nothing happened.   Mama looks stunned that he swore on his mother’s grave.

Aww!  The next morning Todd’s brother is leaving the craziness and going back to his own life.  The vacation was a short one for him.  Todd’s team is shrinking.  Todd’s brother says where there is conflict, there is an opportunity for growth.  It’s important that he works on it.  I can see why Todd is so Zen.  He was probably brought up on Confucius proverbs.  Kaela says goodbye to her uncle and it’s a sweet scene.

The ”unt nuts” (thanks to mrs peabody and OMIB for coming up with that moniker) are making snowballs to start a snowball fight.  Carmon sit down and talks to the “unt nuts” about the fight she had with Mama Joyce.  They are in disbelief and rolling their eyes at Mama Joyce.  Carmon wants to know if there is something else going on with Mama Joyce.  “Unt nut” Bertha says Mama’s relationship with Kandi is downhill so Mama takes it out on Carmon who is the next best person.  Of all people, Bertha says it’s a mental problem.  It’s nice she can identify mental illness in others.  Not so much in herself.  Bertha says Mama has changed since she had brain surgery to prevent a ruptured aneurysm.  But this was when Kandi was younger.  “Unt nut” Nora breaks down in tears which seem very melodramatic because she is so sad and she doesn’t know what to do to help her sister.  In the end, the problem that needs to be solved is between Kandi and Mama Joyce.  Kandi doesn’t seem to want to see there is a problem and is willing to ignore everyone that has a problem with her.

Matthew is wearing a mask to help fight acne. These masks are everywhere.  Even on Brandi.  Mama thinks he looks like “White Vader.”  Mama Joyce complains that Don Juan and Carmon are nasty to people.  Matthew wants to be an irreplaceable employee and he wants to replace Carmon and Don Juan so he is trying to get Mama on his side with flattery and kindness.  Mama tells Matthew that she feels left out of Kandi’s life.  Matthew commiserates.  As soon as Mama Joyce leaves the room, an evil grin slowly appears over Matthew’s face.  He rubs his hands slowly together, licking his lips and says, “First, the assistant job for Kandi and Todd, next, world domination.”  That didn’t really happen but it could!  Off camera!   (Cue evil laugh!)


Matthew gets into a snow fight after insulting Kaela, Riley and Weenie’s snow man.  Weenie got him good. The “unt nuts” want Todd to take them to a place that sell weed.  He takes them to a weed store and I half expect smoke to come pouring out as soon as Todd opens the door.  Bertha is one step away from stepping inside when she steps back, overwhelmed by the smell.  She is the smoker.  I figured she’d be used to it.  God bless the salesman, he asks the aunts for their IDs to check their age.  The salesman seeing where they are from gives them a lowdown on the selling of weed for out of state residents.  They are not allowed to buy more than a quarter of an ounce per day and they can’t take it out of the state.  Age 21 and over can buy weed.  He explains the differences between sativa and indica like a sommelier explaining wine. They smell one of the staple reefers.  They have root beers and gummy bears.  Carole Radziwill can get another gummy bear from this guy instead of some random dude at a club.   The salesman must be giving them the hard sell because Bertha wants to talk outside and when they get outside they want to leave.  Todd must feel pressured to buy a joint because he goes back inside the store and buys one.  Bertha seems like the person that would drive to the reservation to buy discount ciggies.  Bertha insists she got a contact high.  I’m not familiar with marijuana so I’m not sure if you can get a contact high without the joint being lit.  Nora announces she came out with a cookie.  What’s in that cookie, “Unt Nut” Nora?


Kandi, Mama Joyce, Riley and Kaela decide to go snowshoeing.  They walk about ten feet away from the cabin.  Kaela is nice enough to assist Mama Joyce.  They have a snowball fight and it looks like fun.  Kandi is happy they are all bonding.  “Mending and Blending.”

Don Juan is checking up on the office to see if it burned down in his absence.  Carmon and Matthew join him.  Matthew addresses the tense moments between Don Juan and Carmon.  He thinks it’s pathetic that they are not doing their jobs.  Don Juan concedes he could be an asshole and Matthew agrees which DJ doesn’t like so he catalogs what he does for Kandi.  He can take it but can’t dish it out.  DJ knows how the dynamics work with Mama Joyce.  He has been witness to many things and Matthew has been there for a hot minute.  They make up but DJ is uncomfortable when Matthew hugs him.  Don Juan looks spastic when he skis.

Kandi and Todd discuss what happened on the trip.  They are happy Kaela and Riley are getting along.  Todd talks about mourning for his mother and how he is supposed to do that.  He may not be completely accepting that his mother is gone.  He was very close to her.  He is thankful that Kandi is there for him during his tough time.

Everyone is in the living room to talk and “mend and blend”.  Bertha tells them they got a joint and a half for $17.99.  Todd is not allowed to smoke it because Kandi wants his sperm to be healthy.  Do we really need to hear about Todd’s crusty toenails, Kandi?  Kaela tells Kandi if she licks his toes, she can’t kiss them on the cheeks.  Riley demonstrates how to make s’mores for everyone.  Bertha retires for the evening.  Riley and Kaela prepares a game called “Let it Burn” where everyone writes down their problems with other people and then throws the paper in the fireplace to let it burn.  Riley apologizes to Carmon and DJ for throwing shade.  Kaela forgives Mama Joyce for what she said about her grandmother and her father.  Everyone starts tearing up.  The kids are more mature than the grown-ups.  Matthew wants to leave behind negative attention from DJ and Carmon and wants to build Kandi and Todd’s empire.  Weenie wants to leave behind the conversation with Todd.  Todd is letting go of Mama Joyce’s insults.  Everyone tenses when Carmon gets up because they are afraid she might stir something up with Mama Joyce.  Carmon doesn’t want to continue her issues with Mama Joyce.  Mama Joyce doesn’t want any more problems with Carmon.  Mama Joyce sings “Let it go” from Frozen.  Just kidding!  Mama Joyce addresses her two granddaughters, Riley and Kaela, that she wants to be the best grandmother to them and they all go on as a family.  Kandi knows her mama’s good intentions might be short-lived.   Kandi wants to do better about reaching out and showing her family she cares and won’t take her employees for granted.  All our attitudes towards Carmon and Don Juan are based on Kandi’s and other people’s opinions.  We don’t really know if they do their jobs and do it well (maybe not Carmon, she’s lazy).  Kandi is making money so they must be doing something.  It seems the trip ended on a good note and the family is mended and blended…. for now.

    Good morning everyone. Hope you had a great weekend. The weather is going to be a nice week. I hope so for you.
    Can’t wait to read Ramonacoaster. I haven’t been watching these fools. I did see in the description Riley and her step sis told the ADULTS they need to forgive and forget. Who are their parents? They must be pod girls cuz they definitely don’t come from this group. Good head on their shoulders.
    Have a great day.

    • Oh, you nailed it. The teens are really impressive. They got it all over these adults. Kudooze to Todd and Kandi: they did good, in spite of themselves.

  2. ladebra says:

    Great blog RamonaCoaster! I have this show recorded but after reading your blog, I don’t feel the need to watch all the drama 👍 thank you for my extra hour!

    Happy Monday! I feel like I slept all weekend, honestly. I had short bursts of activity followed by many hours of deep sleep. I must have needed it, cause I feel very rested this morning. Hope everyone has an easy week ahead. Summer is here. Triple digits in the Valley today.

    • California35 says:

      Good morning, good for you on get some sleep and rest. I had not been sleeping well all last week, either waiking up in the middle of the night anr waking up way too earky. I finalky had retular two nights, and it does make a huge diference. I feel so mich rested, still have the end of the cold, but feel so much better.
      It was a hot weekend for California, up north and down here. Nice sunny days…keep cool 😀

    • Amber says:

      I suppose it’s obvious by now that the addict didn’t go for the 23k for month deal.

      • Lol- IMHO, with no collaborating evidence whatsoever, she was getting it for certain amount of time, and that time has long since come and gone.

        • T-Rex says:

          Actually KruellaKathy herself DrugAddict/AlcoholicKim received a settlement of Alimony for 23k/month for life. She was receiving an additional 20k for the two Davis children, and another 8k for her youngest daughter, which she has since lost of course since they grew up.

    • So did Kyle steal Kim’s house…AGAIN? 😛

  3. LaineyLainey says:

    Hi guys! Ramona Coaster, I don’t watch that show, but still enjoyed your blog. Wendy Williams said today that ALLEGEDLY Kathy Hilton wants to replace Kim on the housewives of BH. Really???! REALLLLLYYY?!

  4. Powell says:

    except Riley and Kaela.

  5. shamrockblonde says:

    hi All! – I just tweeted Andy to stop re-airing Kandi’s ski trip – enough already! – they have been re-running it non-stop, and honestly, I’m sick of watching it – I have always enjoyed Kandi, but even she si beginning to test me – Mama Joyce needs a full medical workup and checkup – as for the Aunts – they stopped being cute a long time ago – I suggested that they re-air RH of Melbourne – way more entertaining – even Southern Charm, despite Whitney would be better – I don’t know if the nonsense that is that ski trip was all invented for show, or if it is all real, but I cannot understand why ANYONE would allow themselves to be portrayed in such a horrid manner – that goes for most of the HW franchises, but this ski trip thing is outside of the HW family – the balance of the cast on this show are not regulars on RH of Atlanta – I just don’t get it – I get the money, but some things are truly not worth the money – Kandi – you are a beautiful, intelligent, gifted performer – KNOCK IT OFF – *steps down from soap box and returns to Orson* – you know I love you all – even when I’m annoyed – hope your Monday is going well – going happy!

    • California35 says:

      Hahaha Kandi’s ski thing really is annoying you 😛 I dont watch it, I get a feeling I won’t like it 😕

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hahahaha! I would prob be writing the same comment if I were watching this manufactured drama.

    • Um…what nonsense?

      How I wish you could have spent some “quality time” with some of my old family. If this is an act, give these women an Emmy, every one of them.

    WOOHOO this is my final week at work and I’m celebrating with Nacho’s for lunch.
    My favorites on this ski trip were Riley and Kaela.
    Tonight is RHOC!!!! hahahaha 10 seasons of this show and I still like the first few seasons over the last 6.
    Tomorrow we hit 90 degrees and I hope it’s not too brutal for people without a/c.
    Love the bloggers and the hilarity the ensues when I read the blogs. When I’m at home I’ll be able to be more active. They don’t like us to use work pc’s for anything except work.
    I’m a receptionist sometimes this front desk area is empty for HOURS and the phone doesn’t ring. I love my kindle reader. 😉

    • California35 says:

      Yay!! Just this week! 😀
      Nachos sound good right about now … Lunch time here.

    🍊 SEASON 10 TONIGHT! 🍊

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh my gosh, Heather and Vicki are wearing the same dress

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Hand Tamra a baton – it’s looks like she’s ready to lead the marching band!

    • FattyCat says:

      I am looking forward to it, yet in some ways, I just don’t want to go there. I was very disappointed Tamra was back (not a fan). Sorry, she just makes my skin crawl. I’m DVR’ing it because there are two other shows I’m more interested in watching (Devious Maids and Becoming Us). I do look forward to the recaps and blogs. I’ve actually gone back to the archives on this site as I’ve been watching the reruns to read all the past recaps. I so wish I had found this site years ago. Thank you all for keeping me entertained and tuned in when I wanted to quit 🙂 You are the best enablers ever 😉

  8. TexasTart says:

    Ramonacoaster! 🎢 Thank you for recapping Kandi’s Ski Trip. I am nodding my head a big YEAH! for your opinion in the first paragraph – that is probably true!!!

  9. HuskerHuny says:

    Am I ready to let Tamra, Vicki and Heather back in my life? I just don’t know if I can take it. I will watch though because I want to snark with the rest of you. The pain I go through for this board . . . but it’s so worth it!

  10. HuskerHuny says:

    Oh, yeah, I forgot to mention one more little thing. I got a letter this weekend from my son’s university that he recently graduated from. My first thought was “oh Lord, they probably want more money” and I wasn’t going to open it and wait until his father got home to do it. But I couldn’t resist. Guess what – his university was happy to inform him that he made the dean’s list for his final semester of school! Yippee!!! Now if only this letter will get him a job . . .

  11. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    Tamara on OC looks EXACTLY like the medspa / blah blah owner on Secrets and cheesy Wives – blonde #5— I can’t think of her name …….
    The one who attempted cooking for her daughters last week and the daughter only liked hearts of palm in her salad.
    The ones across soul cycle.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Hi Chismosita! Are you enjoying the new show? They gave that blonde more air time it seems? I’m liking the dynamics thus far, we’ll see. 😉 Tamra does look like that lady.

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        hola darling!!!
        Well, it’s hard for me to watch, because literally i go to the stores next to them. When the boyfriend of blonde #16 ran away from the camera bc he was like ‘this is ridiculous’ — i go there all the time for coffee or food – though it’s pricey- bc it’s just ‘easy’……

        I have a groupon for the drybar next to the spa and the soulcycle. I hope they know what the H to do with my hair! nobody does it like my dominicanas. I tried some people two weeks ago, they sucked 😦

        Essentially, i’m looking to see where their houses are– found some of them on the local paper and two are for sale- so i’m going to drive around one day to stalk.

        I just think this coupled with the LI Princesses puts Long Eyelanduhhhh’s in such a bad light so i am mostly embarrassed. 😮

        How are you? Is it very hot right now in Ft. L? Haven’t spoken to my aunt much so haven’t heard how it is right now….

        besitos, and to your boys ! xxxxxxx

  12. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Great job, Ramona coaster! This show is seems so scripted to me-I’m rolling my eyes. Lol mama Joyce knows that she has to bring as much drama to the show as possible. It’s sad how Kandi involves her in every aspect of her life.

    Reality_Bytes, loved your last blog!!

  13. TexasTart says:

    RealityBytes those were great post season blogs on Melbourne. Much appreciation! 😀

  14. Ramonacoaster…bless you my child for your blog because I am sure it is 1000% better than the show…and thanks to you, I can now delete all three parts from my DVR!

    Foxymel and TT…thanks so much!

    • Don’t you DARE! If you don’t love the Cranky Aunts, I’ll be shocked! SHOCKED, I tell you!

      I mean, I’ve been nailed for my Southern dialect all my life, but those women can pack more vowels into a syllable than I’ve ever heard in my life.

      You just don’t get that kind of entertainment from reading a blog, no matter how good it is.

      And I do love your blogs, RamonaCoaster. So thanks in advance and let me go dig into this one.

    So, Mercury has struck again!!

    this is what I get on the site where I need to enter payroll.. No Bueno. It’s been saying this alllll day.

    We apologize for the inconvenience. The service will be restored as quickly as possible.

    Brandi’s chatting about her lawsuit on twitter. I don’t know how to post it on here. Here’s what she wrote:

    When sorry isn’t enough&U sue 4defamation of character shouldn’t that person have to prove they had character in the 1st place?

    I’ve never sued anyone in my life!if I sued every person that said something bad about me I would be in court for the rest of my life! Ha

    • Pretty funny. Too bad I hate her.

      • California35 says:

        Hehehe …. and sad that yes! there are plenty of people talking about the plenty of things she does given them (us) reasons to talk.

    • T-Rex says:

      Well, dumbass if you didn’t LIE so freakin much and if you didn’t think you are a badass(you aren’t) and try to be funny(you aren’t), you wouldn’t be having the issues of a lawsuit. Fact is, the judge thinks your an ass basically, since he threw out the motion to dismiss, gave KrupaKupcake a restraining order, without question. From what I understand chastised her lawyers for not settling the case out from the beginning, and now is making her pay KrupaKupcakes legal fees on top of paying out the defamation money. THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi, lost her case because she SAID IT, then said some other stuff about it as well. As soon as the case info drops I will try to get the papers.

    • TexasTart says:

      That is pretty funny because it’s true, lol

  17. California35 says:

    So its Monday, and no Southern Charm 😕. What’s on then? OC? 😕 and some other shows i know nothing about? 😕

    I guess Bravo will have my attention on Tuesdays only… Enjoy the shows friends…

    • FattyCat says:

      Devious Maids on Lifetime 🙂 that’s my favorite and I’m torn which one I watch tonight or tomorrow DVR. I think DM wins. I’ve been hooked since the beginning 🙂 A great break from “reality”.

      • California35 says:

        Thanks Cat, it is nice to have other shows to watch 😀 when we are done with the reality ones.

  18. TexasTart says:

    Watching OC. Tamra has a love hate relationship with her boobs.

    Big problem. O_o

  19. TexasTart says:

    New word courtesy of OC:
    Revirginized = to give up being laid.

    Lynne Curtin said that.

    • T-Rex says:

      OMFG, look there is NO such thing, I actually heard this word back in the very late 80’s, during my college years, by those girls that were basically poster girls for “Girls gone wild” videos, but decided to “clam it up” until they met Mr. Right, and said they were Re-Virginizing. So LoopyLameLynne must have grabbed it from some high schoolers, Uhm, if you have had sex and then given birth, TWICE, virgin is no longer a part of your vocabulary, you dolt. Sorry, but crap like that really irks me. Just say you are CELIBATE, because THAT’s the word for what you are, you see LoopyLameLynne, adults actually came up with a word for abstaining from sex, some oh, several hundred years ago. but since we know Brains ain’t your strong point, just giving you an FYI!

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Hmmmmm…. so is this a ‘choice’ by her? Since she is allowed to ‘blog’ — does that mean Andy wanted her back but she declined????
      I think most of y’all liked her last yr….?

      Imagine if a friend like PORSHA on ATL blogged………………


      • TexasTart says:

        She chose not to return because her Sunkitten Swimwear has taken off. I’ll miss her being full time, but like Lydia, she was a bit too nice and sometimes the nice girls can’t last on Bravo. You might remember Lizzie was a former Miss Kentucky USA and the pageant has contracted her swimwear to be worn at the pageants!

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          That’s amazing and great for her !
          Maybe apart from mrs Terry’s – the brunettes don’t do well on the OC🍊🍊……. 😝

          Good for her. And everyone seems to have a swimsuit line so that’s even more amazing.
