The Importance of Being Earnest

canada goose outlet houston “I’ve now realised for the first time in my life the vital Importance of Being Earnest.” Oscar Wilde, canada goose outlet houston

canada goose outlet online uk Kara Berry and I begin this recap with no mention of Day Schools Past (for once!) but with the words “Gossip is a sin!” This is spoken by narrator Nelson at the top of tonight’s episode. They’ve also been uttered canadian goose jacket by ancient religious leaders the world over only to be disregarded perpetually by parishioners. Gossip is not only what fuels Bravo and reality TV, but is essential to Savannah social living: You must be nice and polite to Canada Goose Coats On Sale everyone’s face so you can say whatever you want buy canada goose jacket behind their backs. I’m not criticizing that philosophy I’m a big proponent of “what other people say about me is none of my goddam business.” In other words, say what you want, just have the decency to do so when I’m nowhere around, don’t ever let me find out about it, and know that messengers always get shot. As tonight’s episode illustrates, Bravo personalities rarely share my sentiments. canada goose outlet online uk

canada goose outlet vip KB: Oh yes. I am from Atlanta and I will tell you that you can’t say definitively that a person is “sweet” based on Cheap canada goose mere observation. I’m hoping Zia sticks around because he’s likable, handsome and supportive with nary an eye roll regarding Ashley’s belief in ghosts and spirit cleansing. It’s not my thing personally but I can respect it. As the song cheap canada goose uk goes “give me something to believe in.” canada goose outlet vip

The psychic Sistah Patt canada goose uk outlet visits Ashley while she’s hosting Zia and relays that a slave’s ghost is in the home. This ghost is feeling anxious and wants to be heard. Though you may not know what to make of Ashley’s view of the supernatural, she then speaks the important words people who have deemed this show “racist” would be pleased to hear: In the prim and proper South, on land that once housed plantations, Slavery is not a topic given canada goose uk black friday sufficient mention. The history needs to be acknowledged. Ashley is very emphatic about this point and major props to her for wanting to address it, eliminate the BS veneer and be direct.

“The truth is rarely pure and never simple.” Oscar Wilde,

canada goose outlet price Before Sistah Patt leaves, Ashley asks her about her terse marriage and is told: “It’s in your eyes. He’s not your soulmate. You’re not going to meet your soulmate while you’re blocking him.” Zia’s own eyes widen and Ashley takes this in. She will later bring this up to Dennis, her husband, and we see how he shirks real communication and dismisses marital insight from Canada Goose Parka a psychic as silly. He utters the words “I like living here.” It canada goose coats is depressing because Ashley is completely raw and putting herself on the line and before the cameras as well only to be blatantly rebuffed as she struggles to express she craves romance. Ashley lies down on a heap of stylist fashion picks near her closet with sunglasses on very much resembling a teenager and weeps. I feel like crying with her and we are off to a rough start. I may have to take a Xanax to get through the rest of this episode. canada goose outlet price

I do want to rewind and ask Ashley why there is a different pair of shoes lined up perfectly to the right on every step of her staircase leading to the house’s second level. That’s a lot of shoes for a house of 3 people, but I’m hardly one to talk. ShoeAddictShira

canada goose jacket outlet We then see Hannah trying to launch a dress line while her beau Louis has just embarked on his sock venture. Hannah is also having a tough go at it. One expert who is quite blunt for Savannah (judging by what we’ve seen from the others) tells her she has no clue what she’s doing. Hannah keeps her composure in a really admirable way, noting she won’t work with this unapologetic woman again. Hannah is becoming endearing and admirable for her tenacity, though she could do without the repetitive Ashley Strip Golf rants (cue Nelson: “Gossip is a sin!”) which should at this point be SO two episodes ago! Louis seems like a supportive and loving boyfriend to canada goose Hannah which is nice to see. canada goose jacket outlet

canada goose outlet kokemuksia “And, after all, what is a fashion? From the artistic point of view, uk canada goose it is usually a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Oscar Wilde, canada goose outlet kokemuksia

canada goose coats uk KB: This foray into fashion, I fear, is what makes Millennials look irresponsible. Hannah seems to have no formal training in fashion design outside of a love of clothes and it’s obvious she thought she’d be able to go head first into a business venture purely based on tenacity. When she isn’t given a glowing commendation of her wrap skirt and “robellette” idea, she’s ready to cut ties immediately. I would’ve bounced right after the magic wand came out, but that’s because I prefer not to be touched with cheap feathers. I canada goose factory sale appreciate that Louis encouraging her, but he’s a sock designer and last I checked we’ve not had many innovations in socks since someone decided to put toes in about 10 years ago. canada goose coats uk

canada goose outlet online store Later, Canada Goose Outlet the group meets up on the beach and ancillary character Happy, who is actually quite miserable, graces us with her snide presence. She always seems to have something negative to say about Ashley which comes across sounding like bitterness mixed with jealousy. Catherine and Ashley are BOTH in bathing suits but Happy is harping on Ashley stripping down. I can only hypothesize that this comment on the beach (where everyone is in swim attire) is due to Ashley’s more ample bosom and defined derrire. canada goose outlet online store

canada goose outlet factory KB: Yeah, it’s clear that there is nowhere in Savannah that Ashley can wear her bathing suit to, according to Happy and Hannah. But if anyone wants my opinion, Daniel can wear his swim trunks anywhere. Maybe Hannah should start a swimwear line so she can work through whatever issues she has with them. canada goose outlet factory

I’ve just about had it with Happy (her saving grace is her brazenly unconventional upcoming nuptials with Azam. She is Christian, he’s Muslim and her family disapproves. I do feel bad for her in this regard and I do respect that she is standing up for love). There’s more to come from this oh so cheerful creature. Pass Happy the Prozac.

The good news: Happy has set the stage for Catherine to be a lot more likable in this episode. Catherine acting loopy, flirty and giving Ashley a friendly hug due to her level of inebriation has won me over tonight. I also enjoy watching her prepareater on) for a dinner party with the crew. Catherine, when you’re in NYC, hit me up for a night on the town but ONLY if we can drink.

canada goose outlet shop KB: I’d like to request the same of Daniel except I’m not offering to pay for canada goose black friday sale anything and you can just talk to me about your love of neon green. canada goose outlet shop

canada goose outlet locations in toronto “I hope you have not been leading Canada Goose online a double life, pretending to be wicked and being good all the time. That would be hypocrisy.” Oscar Wilde, canada goose outlet locations in toronto

canada goose jacket outlet toronto Catherine’s boyfriend Lyle is away for the day but her friend Earnest (I think it’s actually spelled Ernest but we’ll keep it written the way that makes sense for our title. Sorry Ernest. In this regard, we’re also in keeping with the Oscar Wilde play and I love that!) is there. Though he has limited camera time, his presence and his name become very important to me this episode. How Canada Goose Online often do we meet an Earnest/Ernest in a reality TV beach scene? I believe this is divine intervention. canada goose jacket outlet toronto

There’s a Hebrew expression that translates as “like his name, so is he” and Earnest is true to his name. When Nelson shows up with his hot blonde girlfriend, Earnest says to Daniel and Louis “I thought Nelson was gay.” Then we see Catherine ogling and fondling the biceps of two hotties (see photo at the very top of this article) canada goose coats on sale who have approached her on the beach. Earnest shows no hesitation about bringing this up to Daniel and Louis as well.

canada goose outlet washington dc Again, I’m enjoying this side to Catherine because she seems more joyful and at ease, rebellious and carefree. Maybe Lyle is not “the one” or Catherine is simply not ready to settle down. She is pretty young after all, and when she comes to give Ashley a hug, it genuinely seems that she has forgotten the “mean girl” act. I want to leap through the screen and tell them both that because no one is perfect, they should put all the negative behind them, be equally raw about faults and just get along. Ashley is clearly taken aback by the hug and averse to what she perceives as phoniness, but I think Catherine is in a relaxed head space uk canada goose outlet at this moment. I like it. canada goose outlet washington dc

canada goose outlet mall KB: I STRONGLY disagree. This evening on the beach did nothing to endear me to Catherine. Have we all picframer gotten too tipsy and flirted with overly muscular guys? Sure! But to be so brazen as to do it in front of Lyle’s friends is another story. Actually, perhaps I do like her more now because there’s no way she’s gonna get away with it and I live for an explosive exposure scene. canada goose outlet mall

Daniel, Louis and true to his name Earnest (please don’t sue over the deliberately erroneous spelling) on the other hand, buy canada goose jacket cheap wonder why Catherine is enjoying the attentions from hotties on the beach. Those buff dudes also don’t leave without swapping phone numbers with Catherine. Catherine publicly shrugs it off as having made “buddies” but no one is buying it. The truth is: she’s cutely blushing and I’m just not sure what she really has with Lyle anyway. We do know that he’s just come back to Savannah and reunited with Catherine, but was that purely for the sake of this reality show? Hey, I’m not judging, just wondering. Speculation abounds.

“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does, and that is his.” Oscar Wilde,

canada goose parka uk Happy tries to canada goose clearance sale communicate with her mother about accepting her Muslim husband to be. Her mom, perhaps the source of all things awful about Happy (though I’ll give her credit for the naming of her daughter. I admire optimism.), basically gives a “you made your bed, lie in it” response, runs away from further effective communication much like Dennis did and I’m thinking he may actually be Happy’s mom’s soulmate. I’d love to ask the psychic her thoughts on that. canada goose parka uk

canada goose outlet belgium KB: This conversation is very common to what I’ve seen happen between Southern mothers and daughters. The moms have a VERY specific ideal for who they should marry and what their futures should look like. It almost seems like the “Muslim issue” is less about religion than perceived social status, something that means too much in the South these days. canada goose outlet belgium

canada goose outlet edmonton We get another juxtaposition conversation between Brandon and Catherine discussing the hypocrisies of the canada goose uk shop cast knowing each other their whole lives yet keeping things very surface, while on the other side of town, Ashley is getting her surface Botoxed while her aesthetician (the sister of Lyle’s best friend) tells her she questions Catherine’s loyalty to Lyle. A storm’s a brewing, and I mean that literally Hurricane Matthew is on its way as they get ready for tonight’s event. canada goose outlet edmonton

canada goose outlet legit “How you can sit there, calmly eating muffins when we are in this horrible trouble, I can’t make out. You seem to me to be perfectly heartless.” Oscar Wilde, canada goose outlet legit

canada goose premium outlet The Southerners have been all atwitter (in the ole fashioned way, minus social media) about Ashley’s job situation and whether or not she handles baggage for Delta. Here’s the deal: Ashley is a stylist who was motivated by some other friends with swanky jobs to put in five hours a week at Delta to help boost her leisure travel opportunities. When Ashley is not flying places for work on her clients’ dime, she travels with her son Izzi because she feels it’s important to see how others live. This actually inspired her to canada goose clearance get involved with clothing design for charity. So, Ashley is aware of how all sorts of people live, she’s seen real poverty up close and she’s making a difference about it as well as educating he child. Of course, haters gonna hate. Cue the awful dinner party. canada goose premium outlet

canada goose outlet london While everyone starts out being polite, with Lyle tentatively asking Ashley what she does for a living, Happy is also at this cheap Canada Goose party and she cannot avoid starting trouble by going in hard. First, she attacks Nelson, who in fairness to Happy, probably merits some grilling as he once claimed to be a Bahamian diplomat. However, it seems that things have long ago been Canada Goose sale cleared up and rehashed. Nelson owned his wrongdoings and paid the price publicly through the media’s shaming and having to attend “Liar camp,” a rehab for reflection canada goose outlet london.
