“I haven’t watched it,” Scheana Shay admits, “and I don’t plan on watching it … There’s a lot of things in there I don’t want to relive, and Kristen [Doute] advised me not to watch it if I wanted to keep a smile on my face, so I’m skipping this one.”
The New Orleans trip is also where we’ll see the Toms have a mutual meltdown... in drag. The midseason tease features a moment where Sandoval busts open a bathroom door, revealing a broken-down Schwartz on the toilet.
“He’s a f**king battered wife,” Sandoval announces. “Look at him!”
“I wish there was a simple answer [to how we got to that point],” he tells ET. “It’s very complicated.”
“Look at your life, look at your choices,” Ariana chimes in. “You'll see how hard it was for me to take that seriously.”
Monday’s all-new episode will also seemingly see DJ James Kennedy be welcomed back to
SUR, getting yet another chance from Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd.
“Slowly but surely, everything's gonna turn up good,” James promises. “Yeah, I might get another chance, sooner or later. Who knows.”
Now the question is, will Lala Kent turn up again before season five ends? The controversial SUR hostess walked away from the restaurant -- and seemingly the series -- a few episodes back, saying she wanted to keep her life private.
“It was a tough season for me,” Lala admits. “Trying to keep a relationship that I love and adore private, but I just feel like … give them Lala! And if Vanderpump is the way to get them, let's do it. I don't know.”
Chances are, the next time we’d see the 25-year-old would be at the end-of-season reunion.
“Scheana was trying to talk me into going,” Lala confesses.
“She should be there,” Lisa declares. “I know myself, with Housewives, when I’ve been under pressure, I’ve thought, ‘Oh, I don’t wanna go to the reunion.’ And you saw it, Adrienne [Maloof] didn’t once. I think it’s always good to go and defend yourself, really, because otherwise, somebody fills your void, you know? And Lala wouldn’t want her void filled, now would she?”
“No one else can speak for her,” Ariana adds, echoing Lisa’s sentiment. “I think the best way to speak your piece is to show up and say it yourself. Because, I can't speak for her. You can't. None of us really know Lala better than she does. So, I think she should face the music and I think it won't be as bad as she thinks it'll be.”
