Real Housewives of Beverly Beach
31 min readNov 10, 2023

(From L to R: Sheridan Campbell, Monsè DeRosier, Jac Carter, Mona Quinn, Yvonne Langley, Valentina Armani, & Marcie Maples)

The episode begins by showing showing footage of the impressive Golden Palms — Beverly Beach, a new luxury resort that has just opened up.

There is now a focus on the resort’s upscale day/night club and restaurant; The Beach Haus. We get shots of the pool, the bar, the VIP cabanas, and the dining area. It is a beautiful day as we get footage of Sheridan strutting down the tunnel of palms that lead to The Beach Haus.

Sheridan
Sheridan’s Confessional

“After all the chaos from Yvonne’s dinner a couple of nights ago, I wanted to get the women together for a nice little lunch at Beverly Beach’s hottest new resort, the Golden Palm! The beach club there is fantastic and I’ve worked with the chef a bit and he’s agreed to whip us up a delicious lunch and even shut the place down for us for a few hours!”

Sheridan enters the vacant dining area.

Sheridan: “Woow, so chic!” She looks around.

She approaches the large table that has place settings for them right in the middle of the terrace, so the ocean is the back drop.

Yvonne: “Is that Sheridan with the overgrown boo-tay?”

Yvonne

Sheridan laughs and turns around to see Yvonne walking over.

Sheridan: “You know my ass has always been fat, Yvonne! It’s why the athletes love me!” She winks.

Yvonne: “Let’s stick with the one you have, I can’t handle any more new men with the ‘M’ names!” She laughs. “So this is the Beach Haus? They did a lovely job with this. You almost wouldn’t be able to tell it used to just be cardboard and fossil fuels.” She nods as she looks around.

Sheridan: “Yes, it’s the Beach Haus! The chef, Maverick, is amazing…and fine. And yes, his name starts with an M!” She gives Yvonne a look and begins laughing again.

Yvonne: “Is he one of your exes?” She leans in.

Sheridan: “No, bitch!”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Relax, I’m in love with Marcus! Maverick and I are just friends.”

Marcie is the next to emerge from the tunnel of palms.

Marcie Maples

Marcie: “Sher Sher! Yvonne!” She holds her hands up as she approaches and then hugs them. “Ah! This place is gorgeous, wow!”

Mona comes in next.

Mona

Mona: “Hey girls!” She joins the girls sitting at the table.

Monsè is the last to arrive.

Monsè
Monsè’s Confessional

“I love an exclusive event, and the Beach Haus is currently the hottest ticket in town. And now that Mona and I are getting back on track, I’m hoping today will just be a cute, drama-free lunch with the girls.”

Monsè: “Hey ladies!” She goes around the table giving hugs. “Thanks for the invite, Sher. This place is gorgeous.” She sits in an empty seat.

Sheridan: “Thank you all for being here!” She smiles and holds up her juice.

Yvonne: “I’m glad we could all be here in our little short dresses!”

Sheridan: “Unfortunately Jacqueline couldn’t make. You know she’s stretched thin with her 100 commitments!” She frowns a little.

Marcie: “Poor Jac! She’ll be missed!”

Monsè: “Oh no, I hope she’s not still sick! I feel like she’s been out of it for a while…”

Mona: “We wouldn’t want her getting emotional at another meal.” She laughs.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“I’m sure Jacqueline is busy, throwing her latest tantrum as she looks for a new job.”

The girls turn as Chef Maverick walks out.

Maverick Austin

Sheridan: “Oh great! Everyone — Maverick truly is amazing! He’s preparing our lunch today!” She smiles at the ladies.

Maverick: “Hey, how are you all doing?” He flashes a smile at the ladies.

Sheridan: “Hey Maverick, baby, have you met my girl Mona?”

Mona: “Hi, I’m Mona.” She smiles at Maverick.

Maverick: “I have not met you yet, but it’s nice to meet you Mona.” He shakes her hand. “It’s a pleasure.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Mona needs some dick and Maverick is fine. Yes, he’s not over his ex in Austin but who gives a fuck?”

Yvonne: “Now, how old is Maverick?”

Sheridan: “Old enough for us Yvonne, but too young for you!”

Yvonne glances at him and Maverick laughs, as he stands next to Sheridan.

Maverick: “I do wanna welcome you ladies into Beach Haus today. Sheridan mentioned that she was bringing some friends. So I thought I’d give my sis the VIP treatment.” He chuckles.

Marcie: “Thank you for having us this is wonderful!” She twirls her hair around her finger. “Oh! I’m Marcie by the way.”

Maverick: “Nice to meet you, Marice!”

Marcie’s Confessional

“Now I’m a married lady.. but.”

Monsè: “I hope you can cook us something good Maverick! I’m starving.”

Monsè’s Confessional

“And maybe get us some drinks too, these girls are looking a little thirsty.”

Maverick: “In fact I did. I prepared for you ladies. Grilled mahi mahi with forbidden rice and heirloom tomatoes. Then for dessert, an espresso chocolate lava cake.”

Marcie: “Yum thanks so much!” She bats her eyelashes.

Mona: “Sounds delicious I can’t wait to try some.” She looks up at him, smiling.

Yvonne: “Some of him or the food?” She raises an eyebrow.

Mona: “Just…some!” She smirks.

Sheridan: “He’s delici — his food is delicious!” She clears her throat and glances at the camera.

Maverick: “I’m sure you will enjoy it.” He grins, dimples showing. “Can I sit for a second? I still have the guys preparing your meal.”

Yvonne: “Sure, have a seat!”

Sheridan: “Here, sit by Mona!”

Sheridan scoots over so Maverick can pull up a chair in between her and Mona. He takes a seat and Mona turns to him.

Mona: “How long have you been a chef, Mav?”

Maverick: “I have been a chef for about 4 years now. I went to culinary school back in Texas. So I’ve been enjoying it.” He nods.

Mona’s Confessional

“These girls are really pushing me and Mav but I gotta say I’m so rusty…it’s been 10 years since I’ve flirted with a guy!”

Maverick: “What about you? Are you a foodie at all?”

Mona: “Oh I’m a foodie, I’ll eat anything.” She laughs.

Maverick smirks.

Sheridan: “Truly anything.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“We all saw her ex husband, she will truly eat anything!”

Maverick: “Well, I will have to show you around the kitchen here sometime, Mona. If you would like that.”

Mona: “I’d love that…” She writes her phone number on a napkin and hands it to him.

Maverick: “Imma call you.” He takes the napkin. “Don’t have me waiting around like a school boy, Mona.” He chuckles. “But, I’m going to go make sure your food comes out alright. It was great talking to you.” He winks at Mona and walks off.

Mona: “Oh I won’t…” She mumbles to herself. “I definitly won’t.”

The camera pans to show the women’s reactions. Marcie is clapping a little and, Monsè pats Mona on the back. Sheridan and Yvonne are smiling.

Sheridan: “Okay, Mona!”

Monsè: “Whew, looks like you still got it girl!”

Mona: “Seems like I do!” She’s grinning ear from ear. “Sorry Yvonne, cover your ears — “ She looks at the rest of the women. “But, I need some D!”

The girls all burst out laughing.

Mona’s Confessional

“Call me a slut, call me a whore! You’d be saying the same if you had that little, shrivel — let me stop.”

Maverick and the chefs bring out the ‘Wives entrees.

Sheridan: “You two look like you’re good.” She nods at Monsè and Mona. “I’m assuming your conversation at Yvonne’s art gallery went well?”

Mona: “Yeah, it did.” She nods and looks at Monsè. “I think it was just a huge misunderstanding. Now that we got a chance to talk and clear everything up, we’re good!”

Monsè: “I think we both agreed to disagree for the sake of our friendship, and now we’re back on track!”

Sheridan: “I love that!” She smiles. “I figured you all could get past whatever the blimp was.”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“ I secretly think this will disappoint some of the women in the group that they made amends so quickly — not me though — I knew they weren’t going to separate.”

Marcie: “If only Heidi and I could find that same ground.” She chuckles and takes a bite of Mahi Mahi.

Mona: “I am still annoyed with your guys’ friend.” She points her fork at Sheridan and then Monsè.

Sheridan and Monsè both look at one another.

Sheridan: “Who is our friend, Monsè?”

Monsè: “Who? Jac?” She looks to Mona.

Mona: “We can talk about it later but I felt as though she stirred up this whole situation with Monsè and I and made it bigger than it was.”

Sheridan: “Well…maybe it’s a misunderstanding.” She sips her water.

Mona’s Confessional

“Monsè and I would’ve eventually had a conversation but it felt very pushed because Jac had to bring it up to all the ladies. If Jac was really concerned she could’ve come to me one on one and told me what Monsè was telling her but instead she made it a group thing.”

Yvonne: “Well, speaking of big things…I’m thinking about a little weekend getaway to Hawaii. It’s close, it’s vibrant, it’s relaxing.” She smiles.

Mona: “Yaaas, Hawaii sounds fun!”

Monsè: “Oooh Hawaii. I love it!”

Sheridan: “I love Hawaii!”

Marcie: “Girls trip! Girls trip!”

Marcie’s Confessional

“An all expenses paid trip to Hawaii!? SO IN!”

Yvonne: “However, I have to be honest. I’m not sure about the ladies that aren’t at this table, being in attendance on the trip.” She looks around table. “Valentina, Heidi, and Victoria.” She holds up three fingers.

Monsè: “ I definitely think we should invite my friend Valentina. She’s pretty fun, right?” She looks at the other ‘Wives.

Monsè’s Confessional

“Valentina and Yvonne may have had some tension at dinner but that girl is a good time! I am not leaving this table until I wear Yvonne down for an invite.”

Yvonne: “I’m really not impressed or interested.” She makes a face. “She’s ageist, she’s rude, and she’s messy. If her insults toward me and my business weren’t enough, she’s always talking poorly about Mona behind her back because of what you’ve fed her, Monsè.”

Sheridan: “Oh, Yvonne. I loved Valentina. Give her a chance!”

Monsè: “Now, hold on. I’m not feeding anyone anything.” She puts her hands up. “I’ll admit she was a little off at dinner, but give her another chance! She’s tons of fun and I bet I get can get her to give you an apology that will come with a donation for your gallery.” She winks at Yvonne.

Yvonne: “Fine, she can be invited but she also owes Mona an apology.”

Mona: “Yep, Barbie does! I heard all her little side comments. I guess I’ll give her a chance. For you, Monsè.”

Monsè: “Thank you ladies. I promise I will whip her into shape before we even get into on the plane.”

Marcie: “Now can we vote on Heidi? As long as she’s not invited, I’m in!” She laughs. “Just kidding, I don’t really care regardless.”

Sheridan: “Marcie, what even is this beef with you and Heidi?”

Sheridan’s Confessional

“Marcie and Heidi are beefing but I don’t know the relationship between these girls well enough to even really understand why they have gone from being close friends, seeing them out together all the time, posting on Instagram into this bitter feud…”

Marcie: “She really started it I mean. Look she overheard I was gossiping a little, which so what? Everyone does and as long as it’s not slanderous it’s not that big of a deal. Anyways she invites me to see the venue alone as her friend to see final touches then disinvites me from the actual party, and DID NOT tell me. So I feel like she was trying to embarrass me in front of all of you.”

Sheridan nods along.

Yvonne: “If you were both to go, would you and Heidi both be able to keep your swords at bay or would it be blowout fights?”

Marcie: “I absolutely can, Yvonne.” She shrugs. “I can only promise from my end.”

Sheridan: “Before I co-sign Heidi coming, I want to know what shit she was talking about the women at this table.” She looks at Marcie. “You mentioned at Yvonne’s event that Heidi had said some foul things about some of us women, including me. Let’s hear it.”

Monsè: “I want to hear this too.” She nods.

Mona: “Yeah and I’m not so happy about that comment she made at dinner either.” She places her napkin on her plate.

Mona’s Confessional

“I thought Heidi was supportive of my mental health journey but she made a mockery of it at dinner which really threw me off…”

Marcie: “Oh, Heidi just said your restaurant is shitty and should be shut down for multiple health code violations.” She looks at Sheridan. “She said Yvonne shouldn’t be in this group any longer because she ‘aged out’, whatever that means!” She turns to Mona and points at her. “And, she really trashed you. When you were…away, she called you a the disgraceful addict of Beverly Beach and said she ‘understands why your husband left you’.” She shakes her head. “It’s all really petty.”

The women all look to each other, some surprised.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“How dare she say I’ve aged out of a group I formulated with the women no longer here?! She just got here and her invitation is in danger of being revoked!”

Yvonne: “Aged out? That bitch looks older than me even with her new wig and refreshed face.”

Sheridan: “Oh wow, slandering my business? Any business donated to her charity event.” She shakes her head. “That’s so low.”

Monsè: “Wow… that’s really low. She doesn’t even know these women to be talking about them like that!”

Marcie’s Confessional

“Heidi and I were close up until she pulled the little stunt at her party for the show. Congratulations you’re on camera! Now, start being real instead of the fake persona you’ve created.”

Mona just shrugs.

Mona: ‘Twitter bloggers have said worse about me.”

Monsè: “I don’t know if that’s the kind of energy we need on this trip.” She looks to the ‘Wives. “We’re trying to heal as group, not fall right back apart.”

Marcie: “She’s kind for show for sure but she doesn’t really like any of you girls honestly.” She sighs.

Monsè’s Confessional

“I don’t know Heidi all that well, and honestly I’m not sure if I want to. It’s one thing to throw shade but it’s something completely different to just be downright nasty. Heidi needs a time out in my opinion.”

Sheridan: “Yeah, I’m okay with Heidi staying in Beverly Beach.”

Mona: “I don’t care either way to be honest.”

Marcie: “I’m not asking you to care or turn against her, I’m just letting you know this is who’s trying to befriend you, Mona.”

Yvonne: “I’m fine with whatever you ladies think is right but she also deserves to be confronted for this, but perhaps that can wait until we return.”

Sheridan: “I’m putting my foot down and saying no to Heidi. I want to have fun in Hawaii.”

The girls all nod and agree with Sheridan.

Yvonne: “There’s one more lady…how do we feel about Victoria? I’m not talking to the wannabe First Lady right now but she knows how to have fun.” She shurgs.

Sheridan: “Victoria is a lot of fun!”

Marcie: “She is!”

Monsè: “I don’t mind Victoria! It might actually be fun to get know her better now that we’re in an okay place.”

Yvonne: “I think I’ll be the bigger person and extend it.”

Sheridan: “Hopefully it isn’t a revival weekend at the church!”

Yvonne’s Confessional

“I’m sure you won’t see any semblance of a religious upbringing in her Hawaii wardrobe.”

Marcie: “I’m so ready to have fun in the sun!”

Monsè: “Woohoo! Hawaii here we come.”

Yvonne: “Cheers ladies!” She raises her glass. “Bye bye division, Aloha sisterhood!”

The camera follows Mona as she walks into a beautiful spa building.

Mona

Mona: “Hi! I have a massage reservation for Mona. There’s gonna be two of us.”

Receptionist: “Great, when your friend gets here I’ll take you both back!”

Mona smiles and nods.

Mona’s Confessional

“I invited Heidi out today because at first I really liked her and was interested in getting to know her. But now I’m hearing different things that I want cleared up. I’m not gonna start a friendship if she’s talking behind my back.”

Heidi walks into the building.

Heidi

Heidi: “Hi girlie!” She kisses Mona on the cheek. “Don’t you look fab!”

Mona: “Hey thanks for coming out with me! You look gorg!” She smiles. “I think they’re ready for us!”

Heidi: “Perfect!”

Heidi’s Confessional

“I’m excited to see Mona. There’s been so much talk about her that I just want to get to know her more as a person and form my own opinion on the whole situation.”

Heidi and Mona follow the receptionist as she leads them back to their masseuses.

There is a montage as Heidi and Mona groan in pain and pleasure as they receive their massages. Eventually, they are done and put back on their robes. They are lead to a sitting room with champagne waiting for them.

Mona: “Whew! I needed that!” She sits.

Heidi: “Honey, I know! It’s exhausting having three children!” She laughs and turns to Mona. “So how are you? I know the past few weeks have been a lot for you.” She sips her champagne.

Mona: “Yes they have for sure, this week I’ve been doing okay actually.” She nods. “I felt really good fixing things with the girls and that made me feel better. Now I’ve just got to deal with my divorce. But it’s day to day some are good some are really bad.”

Heidi smiles, she reaches over and gives Mona’s hand a squeeze.

Heidi: “Aw I’m happy to hear that. Just one day at a time. Ya know, the reason I became so passionate about youth mental health is because when I was very young my parents went through a horrible divorce and it’s something that as a child you just are forced to deal with because it’s something completely out of your control. How are the kids handling it?”

Mona nods along then sighs.

Mona: “My oldest can sense something’s up, and me going away for three months didn’t help them either I have so much guilt about that. But my youngest doesn’t have a clue. I’m just trying to keep them away from it all.” She bites her lip.

Mona’s Confessional

“Thankfully, Adam broke up with his gay lover and he dropped his custody claims that he was so adamant about.”

Producer: “Why’d he drop the claims?”
Mona’s Confessional

“To go party in Miami every night.”

Heidi: “You had to do what was best for your children. Right now I’m sure it seems like one thing after another but just keep your head held high and know you’ll come out on top.”

Mona: “Thank you babe…” She takes a sip then looks over at Heidi. “I want to believe that what you’re saying has good intentions but I’m hearing and seeing otherwise.”

Heidi: “From Marcie I’m assuming?” She rolls her eyes.

Mona: “Well…yeah she came to lunch the other day and told us everything you’ve said to her about the girls in the group.” She readjusts in her seat then starts pouring herself another glass. “Apparently you said that I’m a disgruntled addict and that’s why I went to rehab. And that you understand why my husband left me.” She flicks her eyes up to catch Heidi’s reaction.

Heidi looks shocked.

Heidi: “Excuse me? Marcie said that?” Her mouth hangs open. “I have never spoken about anyone in this group in such manner.”

Heidi’s Confessional

“For her to spread lies like this is borderline defamatory. My husband and I maintain a very high social status in this town and for her to jeopardize that by spreading blatant lies is so hurtful and disgusting. She should focus on Hair by Marcie or whatever the fuck it’s called.”

Heidi: “This all seems a bit odd how she’s just now saying this after I mentioned that there was a rumor going around about her finances.” She gives Mona a look.

Mona: “Oh wow, see I don’t know the backstory to any of this or your friendship I was just told you’ve talked behind my back.” She shrugs. “Listen — I don’t know Marcie and I feel a connection with you, so if you say you didn’t say it then I believe you.”

Mona’s Confessional

“I do like Heidi a lot, she seems light hearted and fun. But also a little wishy washy which could be concerning…”

Heidi: “Thank you. There would be no reason for her to say that. I do appreciate you bringing this to my attention.”

Mona: “Of course.” She nods. “Now, Yvonne mentioned a girls trip to Hawaii after Marcie spilled all that so obviously the girls don’t want you to come. If you want to come and share your side of the story I’ll see what I can do to convince the girls.”

Heidi: “I would love that. The record needs to be set straight about that little pigeon toed monster!”

Mona laughs.

Mona: “I do wanna check you about one more thing…that comment you made at Yvonne’s dinner.”

Mona: “I don’t know it made me feel a certain way.”

Heidi: “Oh yeah. I realize that that came off offensive to you and that never my intention. As you know mental health is something I take extremely seriously so I would never want to poke fun at a situation like that in a negative way. I was simply trying to convey to the group that something is a little off with Jac.” She tightens her robe.

Mona: “I get it and after this convo we’ve had I don’t think there was any malice behind it but I’m someone who’s upfront about everything so I thought I’d say it.” She laughs.

Heidi: “I totally understand where your coming from and I appreciate you coming to me directly rather than gossiping like you know who.”

Mona: “Of course! Well let’s cheers to new friendships!” She raises her glass.

Heidi: “To new friendships.” She smiles, raising hers.

As Heidi and Mona clink their glasses together, the camera zooms out from the spa and pivots.

We are now suddenly in the heart of Downtown Beverly Beach. We get shots of the towering high rise building that Jac lives in.

Inside of the penthouse kitchen, Jac is putting together a charcuterie board and some chips and hummus.

Jac
Jac’s Confessional

“I missed the lunch at Beach Haus with the other girlies because I was feeling really unwell, so I’ve invited my favourite chicas over for a little snack and catch up!”

We here the door open then close, the camera pans to show Monsè coming down the long hallway.

Monsé

Monsè: “Hey girl! How are you? We missed you at lunch!” She prances over to Jac and gives her a hug.

Jac: “Ahhh my Monsè! Honestly, my love, I’m still feeling so unwell.” She frowns. “I don’t know what’s going on with me but come come I want to hear all about it!”

Sheridan is next to enter, she flings the door open and struts down the hallway.

Sheridan

Sheridan: “BITCHES IM HERE!!!”

Monsè: “Hey bitchhh! Okay with the snatched waist. Who are you all dressed up for?” She admires Sheridan.

Jac: “Not Miss Deen breaking into my home.” She laughs and picks up the board and food.

Jac’s Confessional

“This bitch has gotten too comfortable at Casa Carter.”

Outside, Valentina stands and knocks on the penthouse door politely.

Valentina Armani

Valentina: “Hello is anyone home? Oh, I hear them!”

Inside, Monsè hears the door.

Monsè: “Oh I think Valentina’s here!”

Jac: “One sec, girlies! Val’s here!” She sets the food down in the sitting area then heads to the door. “Tina!!! Come in! Come in!”

Valentina: “Hey, I didn’t want to barge in or anything! I heard commotion is everyone okay?” She laughs and steps inside, handing Jac a bottle of wine.

Jac: “Oh you know! Just Sheridan not knowing how to act when she comes to peoples homes!” She giggles.

Jac and Valentina walk into the living room. Monsè stands up and hugs Valentina.

Valentina: “Hi Monsè! You look comfortable.” She turns to Sheridan. “Sheridan it’s good to see you again, you look stunning as ever!”

Sheridan: “Valentina, a true Barbie! Love!”

Jac: “Not you look comfortable.” She laughs and sits.

Valentina’s Confessional

“Now Monsè is my girl but Jac on the invite said dressy chic and Monsè came comfortable, cute?”

Monsè: “Girl I can’t be wasting couture on a charcuterie board!”

Jac: “Excuse me Monsè! But I sourced the finest meats and cheese for my charcuterie board.”

Sheridan: “Jac is anyone else joining us?”

Jac: “No just you gorgeous ladies! After the other night, I’m wanting to keep it cute and chill.”

Valentina: “I hear you boo! I think us ladies are probably the chillest of the bunch!” She smiles.

Jac’s Confessional

“My breakdown the other night made me reflect on the severity of the issues that are going on in my life. Between my marriage and my health, I’ve just got a lot on my plate right now and need positivity for my chicas. Not uneducated commentary from a ‘philanthropist’ with no decorum.”

Sheridan: “We missed you ladies at the Beach Haus. Valentina, I need your number doll so I can invite you places.” She puts some crackers on her plate.

Valentina: “Of course.” She pulls out her phone. “I just am hesitant to give it out to just anyone, but I like you! Put your number in my phone!” She hands it over.

Sheridan takes Valentina’s phone.

Sheridan: “You ladies missed a lot. Yvonne invited us all to Hawaii, and you both are on the guest list!” She hands her back her phone.

Jac: “Hawaii, you say?” She sips her wine. “Okay, so who all is going?”

Valentina: “Wait, she invited me…?” She looks at Sheridan. “Even after my comments at her peanut gallery — I mean art gallery.”

Monsè: “You owe me big time, girl.” She points to Val. “Yvonne and Mona made me work for your invite.”

Jac: “Mona?” She makes a face. “But it’s Yvonne’s trip? Why is Mona dictating the guest list?”

Valentina: “And they made you work?” She scoffs and sips her wine. “What did they do, girl? Did you have to sacrifice yourself for me or something?” She rolls her eyes.

Monsè: “No sacrifices, but I did sort of promise an apology from you…” She shrugs. “I mean, you were a little bit blunt about Yvonne’s gallery not being up to your standards.”

Valentina leans in.

Valentina: “Monsè, you know damn good and well we’ve been to better art exhibits than Yvonne’s little gallery. I mean the whole place was 500 square feet MAX!”

Sheridan’s eyes widen and she shakes her head; Jac looks nervous.

Valentina’s Confessional

“Maybe I need to take the ladies to the Louvre in Paris and show them a real art exhibit!”

Monsè: “You don’t have to say it though, inside thoughts!” She laughs. “ Can you just apologize for me so they’ll let you come turn up with us on the islands?”

Valentina sighs and adjusts her top.

Valentina: “I’ll have to think about it, but as long as she’s gracious, I’ll be gracious. She was dishing it as much as she was taking it.”

Monsè: “You’re right, that’s just how Yvonne is though. You’ll get used to her eventually.”

Sheridan: “Mona also wasn’t too happy with you either, friend.” She looks to Jac and plops a cracker in her mouth.

Jac: “Mona isn’t happy with me? Why’s that?”

Monsè nods to Sheridan.

Monsè: “I think feels like you stirred the pot a bit with me and her, Jac.”

Jac: “How does she feel I stirred it up between you two?”

Monsè: “She just felt like you should’ve let us have the conversation on our own, you know, instead of playing messenger and letting us know the other said. But maybe you should talk to her yourself, cut out the middle man before it gets messy.”

Monsè’s Confessional

“I’m definitely a little annoyed at Jac for telling Mona what I said when I was venting, but ultimately it worked out okay, so I’m not going to make this issue any bigger. I’ll give her a pass this time.”

Jac: “You see, this is my problem with all of this.” She begins tearing up. “I’m somehow getting the title of the pot stirrer when all I was trying to do was articulate how she hurt you, Monsè.” She fans herself. “God, these girls.” She tilts her head back.

Sheridan: “Oh babe, don’t cry. The girls were also making jabs at you always crying too.” She looks at Jac sympathetically and munches on a cracker.

Monsè: “Oh, Jac. Just talk to Mona, you two are friends! Just let her know where you were coming from, maybe she’ll understand.” She pats Jac’s knee.

Jac: “I don’t think they understand that I’m going through a lot. My emotions are all out of whack. Im just not in a good place.” She dabs her eyes.

Jac’s Confessional

“I haven’t told any of the girls but I haven’t had my period in about 3 months or so. My mother went through early menopause in her late 30s and I think that’s why I’ve been all over the place lately. I have a doctor’s appointment to get everything checked out tomorrow, I’m really nervous.”

Sheridan: “This trip should be fun. All the girls in the group will be going except Heidi!”

Jac: “Thank God. We don’t need her unfiltered, belligerent, desperate to be noticed antics.”

Sheridan: “Fun times will be had by all! I’m sure everyone will work it out.” She reaches for more crackers but they are all gone.

The camera follows Jac as she gets up and goes into her kitchen. The ‘Wives watch her curiously and she pulls out some bread.

Jac: “Sheridan, do you want a sandwich?”

Sheridan: “Hell yes, I want a sandwich!”

Jac’s Confessional

“Sheridan is eating all of my crackers. Clearly the bitch didn’t get the afternoon snack memo, so let me make her a sandwich. Sheridan is better on a full stomach.”

Jac brings the sandwich back to Sheridan. The camera pans to Valentina who finishes typing something on her phone before setting it down.

Valentina: “Well ladies — since Sheridan has her sandwich now and I’m a few cocktails in what do you all say us four fire up my private Jet and head over to Hawaii.” She holds up her phone. “I just got the okay from Brandon to take the jet! We will let those other basic bitches fly in economy! I figured it would be a good chance for me to bond with you guys more and also stick it to Mona and Yvonne that I am that bitch! BLOOP!” She giggles.

Sheridan: “Oh babe, I love flying private!”

Monsè: “Yessss, private jet? Sign me up!”

Jac: “Ohhhh a private jet!! I can get around that!”

Monsè: “Plus who wants to deal with airport security when we can fly in styler, comfort and private!” She shrugs and smirks.

Monsè: “Much better than an RV.” She shoots Sheridan a look. “Just kididng, girl.”

Sheridan: “Don’t do that Monsè! It was for bonding!”

Valentina: “Perfect! Glad you’re all in.” She looks around. “I’ll have to get all of your information and I’ll have a driver set to pick us all up in a sprinter van!”

Jac: “Oh lord. Let’s not bring up large motorized vans with this group.” She laughs.

Valentina: “Let’s cheers to Hawaii ladies and a fabulous girls weekend!”

Jac: “To Maui!!! We’re going to Maui, right?” She raises her glass.

Monsè: “Something like that. To Maui!”

The scene ends with laughs and cheers with the girls as the camera zooms in on Sheridan taking a big bite of the sandwich with salami hanging out of her mouth.

We hear emergency sirens and the sound of hospital monitors. The camera picks up to catch Jac and her husband, Beau, walking out of the hospital together.

They walk through the parking garage and finally get to their car. Beau turns it on and the couple sits in silence. Jac glances at Beau, and he just begins driving while staring straight ahead.

Jac’s Confessional

“So…” She pauses. “It turns out that having not had my period for a little while, being hypersensitive and feeling nauseous wasn’t early menopause….” She takes a deep breath. “I’m pregnant. Thirteen weeks to be exact.” She awkwardly laughs. “An absolute miracle but a surprise nonetheless.”

We get footage of Beau pulling onto the highway, still not having said a word. He chews his lip.

Jac: “Are we just going to sit here in silence?” She glances at him.

Beau: “I don’t know what you want me to say, Jac.”

Jac: “Are you not happy?”

He sighs and taps the steering wheel.

Beau: “Of course I’m happy. We’re having another baby.”

Jac: “Then why aren’t you saying anything?”

Beau: “Because this is what I’ve been talking about, Jac.” He looks over at her after he switches lanes. “You’ve taken on too much with all the projects and all the traveling. You’re 13 weeks pregnant for Christ’s sake and you didn’t know.”

Jac: “I know.” She plays with her hair. “I know I’ve been careless but what do you want me to do? I already left Reality of Roleplay. You know they wanted me back and it came with a big cheque.”

Beau: “When has it ever been about the money? We have money. We’re good on that front but we need to be good on a this front.” He uses one hand to motion between them.

Jac: “I know. I know…”

Beau: “Listen babe, I want you to have your career. I want you to be successful. I want you to do whatever you want. I’ll always support you. No matter what…” He places a hand on her thigh while they drive. “But I also want us to be connected and be together. For you. For me. For Annabelle. For Julian.”

Jac looks down and rubs her stomach.

Jac: “And for the newest little addition to the family.”

Beau puts his hand over Jac’s.

Beau: “And of course our little boy or girl.”

Jac: “I want to know what we’re having beforehand this time.” She purses her lips.

Beau: “Oh we’re 100% finding out beforehand.”

Jac smiles a bit and sheds a little tear as they pull into the parking garage of their high-rise. Beau leans over and kisses Jac, then gives her a big hug once they park.

Beau: “We’re good. We’re good. We’re both going to have to stop drinking now that you know you’re pregnant but we’ll be good.” He laughs.

Jac: “No booze for awhile now.” She laughs.

Jac’s Confessional

“Oh absolutely. When I’m pregnant and not allowed to drink neither is Beau. That’s the way it was with Annabelle and that’s the way it’s going to be this little one.” She rubs her belly.

Beau: “Alright, let’s go upstairs. We gotta pick the kids up soon.”

The scene ends as Beau and Jac get out of their car.

The scene begins with shots of the airport. We see people getting dropped off at the Departures gate. We get shots of people going through security and inside of the airport.

As someone rolls a suitcase across the screen, the scene transitions to the airport lounge where Mona, Marcie, and Yvonne are sitting at the lounge bar.

Marcie, Mona, & Yvonne

Yvonne: “We’ll do a bottle of your finest champagne.” She smiles at the bartender.

Mona: “Yeah, I definitely need some alcohol before we get on this plane.”

Yvonne’s Confessional

“So we’re all flying to Hawaii today. While my group is flying first class, Monsè’s new friend she’s forcing into the group invited the other half of ladies on her rented private jet. I suppose she wanted to show off, but I promise flashy pretentiousness will not secure your place in this social circle or in Beverly Beach.”

The bartender brings back a bottle of champagne and three glasses. He cracks it open for the ladies.

Marcie: “Are you girls excited?” She sips her champagne.

Yvonne: “Yes. I think Hawaii will be fun. But where do you think we’re going Mrs. Maples? You do you have so many bags? No assistant?”

The camera pans to show two oversized suitcases and a large Beis Weekender bag sitting next to Marcie. We then see iPhone footage of Marcie struggling to bring those bags, plus two additional suitcases up to the check in counter. We see her struggling with the bags and almost falling over.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“Maybe Heidi was correct, Pennies are pinched over in the Maples household because there’s no way you’ll see me almost fall over with luggage.”

Mona: “Yeah, we’re only going for two days.” She raises an eyebrow at Marcie and her luggage.

Marcie: “I just pack alot!” She laughs. “This is vacationing not work travel. You know I usually have a team but I don’t see a point in spending the extra money when I can do it all myself!”

Mona: “Are you sure you can do it yourself?”

Yvonne: “And are you sure theres no money problems? I’ve never really seen you with a team, to be frank.” She shrugs.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“The last time I saw Marcie with a team was when she employed people at her salons, that was well over 10 years ago.”

Marcie: “I promise Yvonne my household problems have nothing do do with my finances.”

Yvonne: “Well, what do they have to do with?” She leans back and crosses her legs.

Marcie shakes her head a bit.

Marcie: “Next question, please!”

Marcie’s Confessional

“Do I have a team? Yes! I don’t see a point in bringing them on a day trip however! I am giving Yvonne a bit of a side eye at the moment. I’ve confided in Yvonne about my marriage. She knows, this seems a little targeted but I won’t take it personally. She’s my friend.. right?”

Yvonne: “Okay, you want to change the subject Marcie- that’s fine. Mona, how are the kids?”

Marcie sips her champagne quietly as the camera pans to Mona.

Mona: “The kids are good! They’re with my mom right now which I kinda feel bad about after leaving them with her for three months but…” She shrugs.

Mona’s Confessional

“My mom is a literal superhero to put up with me and my problems. She took my kids in no questions asked and still let’s me go on a girls trip no questions asked.”

Marcie: “Do you feel better? Being out and with them now?”

Mona: “I am feeling better! Obviously I have bad days still but overall I’m much better than I was three months ago.”

Marcie: “That’s good.” She smiles. “I’m happy for you!”

Yvonne: “Where is the boys’ father? You know, I ran into Adam once when he had the kids. They’re growing up to be lovely young men.”

Mona: “You ran into Adam with the kids?” She gasps. “That’s a first!” She laughs. “ He did have them for a couple days while my mom had surgery, that’s the only parenting he’s done in 6 years. But thank you they’re really good kids. Currently, Adam’s living his mid life crisis out in Miami.” She finishes her champagne.

Marcie: “Miami? That’s where people go to disappear oh gosh!”

Mona: “Well I wouldn’t mind him disappearing.” She chuckles.

Yvonne: “Speaking of Miami…that plastic Barbie, Monsè’s friend…what’s her name — Actually I don’t care. How dare she do this thing with the jet?”

Mona: “Ugh I know! I was waiting for you to bring that up because I didn’t know if you were as pissed as I was.” She shakes her head.

Mona’s Confessional

“Instead of going into this trip happy and excited, I’m going in pissed off now because to my surprise Valentina chartered a private jet and only invited Sheridan, Jac, and Monsè to join her. What the hell?”

Mona: “Who does she think she is not inviting us on her jet. Hey it probably only fits 4 passengers anyway because she can’t afford an actual jet.” She laughs.

Yvonne: “It just feels a bit personal to me. You know I was already on the fence about inviting her and now it feels like she’s intentionally trying to exclude me on a trip I’m hosting.”

Marcie: “I just think it’s so rude not to even invite the host.” She frowns and looks at Yvonne.

Yvonne: “Exactly, Marcie but I’m also skeptical of Monsè. She and I are in a better place, you two are in a better place…” She motions to Mona. “Why would Monsè not call this out?”

Mona: “I don’t know.” She shakes her head. “ The issue we had with each other was that we didn’t feel like we were there for each other…the least she could’ve done was ask Valentina if I could ride with them. That’s what I would’ve done if I was in her spot. It’s all very weird.”

Mona’s Confessional

“So this is how we’re rekindling our friendship by you going off with your other friends and excluding me? what the fuck is that?”

Marcie: “Maybe she just wanted the free jet rise.” She smirks and leans back.

Yvonne: “Her company’s doing well but not private jet well, so I can understand her eagerness to live lavishly.” She nods at Marcie.

Yvonne’s Confessional

“Look, Monsè doesn’t get a lot of luxury moments so I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and say she’s caught up in the ambiance of having a rich friend.”

Mona: “That plastic blow up doll, though…” She widens her eyes. “The audacity to not invite you as the host is so tacky. Talk about ungrateful.”

Marcie: “Seriously and just not nice. She obviously doesn’t think we’re very interesting either, Mona.”

Mona: “We’re definitely more interesting than her fake ass.” She makes a face and crosses her legs.

Yvonne: “Trust, she will be dealt with.” She smirks, sipping her champagne.

Marcie: “Well.. the plane’s almost about to board first. Should we head over?”

The episode ends as the ‘Wives head out of the lounge and to their gate.
