So I’m kind of obsessed with watching Mrs. Eastwood and Company. I want Dina to adopt me so I can play Dirty Harry with Clint all day. This week I’m recapping two episodes since we got bumped with a “to be continued” last week. It only made sense to lump them together. In case you didn’t know though…Dina has been married to Clint for 16 years and they have one daughter, Morgan. Dina manages a band from South Africa called Overtone with her brother Dominic. Francesca is Clint’s daughter from a previous relationship with Frances Fisher (the chick from Titanic) and her boyfriend is Tyler Shields, a pretentions and “edgy” photographer.
Don’t want your daughter to get a fishing lure…get one yourself!
Previously, Dina persuades Morgan not to get a belly button ring by getting one herself along with her housekeeper Lisa, who got her nose pierced. Ed struggles with coming out as a gay man so he seeks support from his band mates but Emile is hesitant. When Fran hears about it she takes it as Emile not supporting Ed so she and Dominic decide to put bologna and mustard all over his car. Emile calls to let Dina know his car was vandalized and she realizes that Fran and Dom did it and makes them apologize.
Who knew Dina was skilled in peeping into windows?
Morgan wants to have a 16th birthday party in a hotel alone with her friends and Dina struggles to let her have some freedom. I think she struggles because what normal parent would allow their child to have free reign in a hotel room with their rooms? She eventually allows it but at the hotel she will already be at because she will be attending Overtone member Tino’s wedding. The girls don’t do anything out of line and seem to be fairly innocent in today’s standards but Dina can’t help but freak out so she sneaks to the room and tries to look in the window. Not creepy at all. Morgan gets upset but later understands that her mom just loves her and wants the best for her.
“Of course I wouldn’t push you off the bridge…my camera would get wet”
Fran and Tyler head to London for Tyler’s gallery opening but encounter some bumps in their relationship when Tyler oversteps his boundaries during a photo shoot. He has Fran stand upon a bridge in high heels which ends up freaking her out. As she walks away and cries in the car, he doesn’t console her but continues snapping away. He later apologizes and says he only pushes her because he knows she is capable of more. Then we get to Birkin Gate 2012 when alledgely Tyler gets Fran to chainsaw and burn a $100,000 Birkin bag for the sake of art. I don’t think it was a real bag because I don’t think Tyler could afford a real bag let alone know someone who was in possession of one. He just likes attention as much as his girlfriend so they do stupid shit to get it along with more publicity for his photos. Dina struggles with letting clutter go because as a young girl she didn’t grow up having much but with help from Fran, Lisa and Morgan she is able to let some things go. Now that we are all caught up, let’s get to the Maui Mayhem!
I’m so edgy! Ohhhh ARTSY!
Lisa is coloring Dina’s grey hair in the kitchen and Dina is freaking out about having a black line across her forehead from the dye. She wonders what gets dye out and I remember when I went through a goth phase and dyed my hair black, hand sanitizer. Seriously. Everyone is heading to Maui to celebrate spring break and everyone includes Overtone (they have a concert) and four of Morgan’s friends (for spring break). Fran wants to bring Tyler but does she really have a choice of going without him considering she is shoved so far up his ass that they operate as one living organism? Tyler has hesitation because his family used to vacation together until his father became handicapped but Franny sees this as a good time for him to bond with her family since they all know and realize he is a bad influence on her. Dina, Morgan and friends head to Hawaii and sing and dance in the car on the way to the Maui home.
Worst storyline ever.
Overtone is heading up to Maui later but they have some drama to get out of the way first. It seems that there may be a relationship forming between Eddie and Riaan but the other guys do not know how to broach the subject with them without being uncomfortable. They call the boys to come to the house to have a meeting but don’t tell them it is about their relationship. They ask the guys if there is something going on with them which they deny and then they ask Riaan if he is gay which he refuses to answer. He does say that there was something between the two of them but not anymore which actually answers whether he is gay or not. The rest of the members who are clearly uncomfortable with this knowledge tell them that they can’t be together because it could affect the band. What they don’t know is that they already were for over a year and that Ed is in love with Riaan. I don’t get what the big deal is if they were already undercover banging for a year and it didn’t create a problem.
Not confrontational at all…
Fran and Tyler are on their way to Maui with Dominic when Tyler starts playing around in the airport and acting like he is a chiropractor. He straightens Dom’s back and offers to help a lady standing nearby who looks creeped out by him. The band has also made their way to Maui and then RoomGate happens. The band gets two large suits and a smaller room with two beds. Emile wants a suite for him and his girlfriend (whose a big C and shouldn’t have even come along on Dina’s dime) and Dom wants a suite for him and his new wife (also shouldn’t be there on Dina’s dime). Ed and Riaan are pissed because they think the others do not treat them equally since they are gay and not in an exclusive relationship like the others. I think this could have been solved by NOT inviting the girlfriends/wives/groupies since you are there to perform, not relax and sightsee.
Get a tan…please.
