The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip kicked off its sixth episode on Peacock. This episode began with all the ladies waking up and dealing with the aftermath of the previous night’s events. Dorinda and Jill made amends and got to a point of understanding where the other was coming from in terms of how their supposed friendship has been and how they would like for it to be moving forward. However, Brandi wakes still pretty upset with the comment Dorinda made regarding her son. Brandi says, “Dorinda is a sloppy drunk and she went after me when I walked away two times! We’re not going to get up today and brush this off. We’re going to have a f**king conversation cause normally I can let s**t go but don’t talk about my kids.”
As the ladies begin to file in for breakfast, Tamra, Vicki, and Brandi talk about how Dorinda has been saying mean things to each of them and they feel like they can’t reason with her. Tamra says, “I just feel that Dorinda says s**t and then apologizes, and she thinks it’s all better. You can’t just put a band aid on it and be like “oh I was drunk, I was stupid, sorry” it doesn’t like that.” Dorinda enters the room where the ladies are having breakfast and immediately goes to apologize to Brandi. She tells Brandi, “I’m apologizing. I used the wrong reference. I should’ve said imagine if someone in your life died but I was wrong and I apologize for that.” Brandi responds, “Why are you so mad? It’s happening everyday with one of us. Dorinda says, “I think what happened with Jill was very different and we talked it through and we’re good. Last night I definitely drink too much.” Tamra recommends they all drink less, but Jill and Brandi remind everyone that they are all going to wine tasting later. In her confessional, Dorinda admits with tears in her eyes that she really screwed up but that she did try hard to make it nice.
As Dorinda leaves the breakfast table, Eva and Phaedra join the remaining ladies for breakfast. Phaedra says in her confessional, “I’m hoping everybody can let the new day be new and not continue to rehash things from a decade ago, a day ago. It’s too many bitter Bettys holding on to yesteryear. Get over it. Change your panties.” Back in their bedroom, Tamra and Vicki vent to each other about not being able to speak their mind to Dorinda. Tamra starts to cry out of nowhere and Vicki begins to babble on about “we’re all going to die one day” as Phaedra and Brandi enter their bedroom. In her confessional, Tamra says, “No one talks about death as much as Vicki. She’s a Debbie Downer.” Vicki tells the ladies to let everyone know that if she died right now that she died sad. The other ladies laugh off Vicki being dramatic. Jill goes to Taylor’s room to talk about why she decided to bring up a decade old feud that really didn’t have anything to do with her. In the same sequence, Brandi, Phaedra, Tamra, and Vicki are discussing the Taylor argument as well. Brandi says, “She went in. And I was like what? I thought we were fine. I regret going low. I do. I was just caught off guard.” Vicki admits that Taylor’s behavior was weird. Back to Jill and Taylor. Jill says she respects Brandi getting up to walk away and Taylor agrees and says, “Yes, I agree with that. I obviously have unresolved issues with her and it’s something that I’m just going to have to swallow.”
As the ladies break off to do their own things, Phaedra and Tamra go on a walk to get to know each other more. Tamra asks Phaedra to tell her more about her new man. Phaedra says that the man she’s been dating is “a physician that’s really good with kids” and that she’s really enjoying his company. When the topic of divorce comes up Phaedra says that she’s been divorced twice from the same person. Phaedra says, “Our divorce was final, he appealed it and they granted the appeal” Phaedra admits she’s not sure if she wants to get into another marriage. She said, “I don’t know if I want to get into a martial situation. Let’s have some fun and then you go home and pee on your own toilet. I like my bidet crystal clean and fresh.”
The ladies head off to go to wine tasting! Before the ladies begin drinking, Phaedra decides to lead an emotional group prayer in hopes of the ladies having a fresh start to their day and being kind to one another. Dorinda says in her confessional, “Phaedra, a blessing. It couldn’t have come at a better time. It kind of just settled me down a little bit. So, I’m thankful for that.” After a few drinks, Vicki wants the ladies to go around the table to talk about their departure from their respective shows. Phaedra immediately turns this down by saying “I’m not doing that but, in her confessional, says, “My departure was BS. There are always two sides to every story and then there is the truth. And let’s just say that there was only one side heard.” Dorinda says she’s lucky because she got “put on pause” during Covid. Brandi tells Dorinda that “put on pause” is just a fun word for fired. She thinks Dorinda is pissed for being fired from housewives.
Phaedra shifts the conversation and asks each lady about their favorite moment on their shows. Taylor says her favorite moment is when they all went to Vegas dancing as Brandi imitates the infamous Camille dance. Tamra says hers is when she got engaged to Eddie, Dorinda’s is when everyone came to her house in the Berkshires for the first time. Vicki’s favorite moment is when she surprised Michael at college, Eva’s when she got married and when her husband legally changed her daughter from a previous relationship last name to his. Jill’s favorite moment is the Morocco trip, Brandi says her fun times were with Lisa Vanderpump on and off camera while Phaedra’s favorite moments would include the birth of both of her sons.
Before the ladies leave the wine tasting, Dorinda takes this opportunity to talk to Vicki. She explains that she has admired Vicki over the years, and they got off on the wrong foot because it was hard to understand how a woman as beautiful and successful as Vicki could let a man bring her down. Dorinda admits she took Vicki’s behavior personally when she first arrived but now, she understands it had nothing to do with her and apologizes for not being more supportive of what Vicki was going through. Vicki is glad to get a genuine apology from Dorinda.
The ladies arrive back at the house and prepare for Christmas in September! Dorinda’s home is decorated beautifully in Christmas décor. All of the ladies are dressed beautifully, and as Brandi’s dress is brought up and she mentions that it was the dress that she was supposed to wear to the reunion with Denise, but she got “cancelled” the morning of. The infamous topic of Brandi and Denise comes up and the ladies discuss what happened from Brandi’s perspective. Brandi says, “She kind of hit it and quit it and it kind of broke my heart.” Dorinda says, “I don’t know why she would lie about it. Denise was married to Charlie Sheen, and he had an eclectic sex life so who knows, you never what goes on behind closed doors.” Tamra tells the group that she’s known Denise for 10 years and that Denise called her seeking advice when this scandal first happened. Tamra reveals that Denise completely denied having sex with Brandi but admits she believes Brandi, even though she slipped up and said she believes Denise first. Tamra reveals that something happened at BravoCon. It involves Denise soliciting Tamra to hook up and come to her hotel room. Tamra admits that Denise was very flirty and if she were single, she probably would have slept with her. Brandi thanks Tamra for being honest about her experience and is very thankful for Tamra having her back.
The conversation turns a little naughty when Tamra asks Brandi which ladies, she would like to have sex within the room and Brandi mentions Phaedra, Eva and Tamra. Brandi mentions that she wants to show Vicki how to use a vibrator while Tamra admits she’d want to sleep with Eva first, Brandi second and Phaedra third. In her confessional Phaedra says, “They like that chocolate. Melts in your mouth, not in your hands.” Meanwhile, Jill is offended that no one wants to sleep with her. When pushed to give an answer like the other girls Vicki admits “I’d probably do Brandi. She can teach me.”
As the ladies sit down for dinner, Dorinda says that she’s making sure not to drink much because she feels like she’s being watched. The ladies thank Dorinda for putting together such a festive dinner party. Phaedra says, “She made it nice.” Tamra asks, “Is there anyone here you thought you wouldn’t get along with?” Brandi jokingly says everyone but admits, “I wasn’t worried about Jill or Dorinda. I knew we’d get along. I knew Phaedra and I would get along in a weird way cause we’re the same but she’s like a better version of me and Eva I just want to have sex with.” Phaedra jokingly says, “I’m feeling jealous cause I thought I was your top choice. Now what’s going on?” Dorinda brings up that Taylor was worried most about being around Brandi. Brandi says that for people that have known her a long time she’s just a lover. Taylor says, Yeah, you are either f**king or fighting.” Taylor admits that she was hurt by Brandi and was holding on to that but she’s hopeful that they’ll move forward in friendship.
As Tamra and Eva walk outside because Tamra says Taylor makes her snore, Brandi takes this opportunity to “hit on” Vicki after the two shared a “peck” before dinner. Afterwards, all the ladies come outside because there is a snow machine blowing snow for the ladies and it really makes it feel a lot like Christmas. The ladies head back inside to play “White Elephant” and Tamra goes first choosing a gift that is a Gucci scarf. Brandi goes second and chooses the gift Taylor bought and then proceeds to make out with her. That’s classic Brandi. Taylor says in her confessional, “It’s Christmas the drinks are flowing, pillow lips. It was bound to happen.” Jill chooses a gift that’s an ugly Christmas sweater, Eva chooses a gift that is a silk collection, Taylor takes the Gucci scarf from Tamra, Phaedra chooses a gift that is a Jo Malone candle, Dorinda chooses Bluetooth sunglasses, Vicki chooses a vibrator and says she needs it. Dorinda says, “When you take a bunch of middle-aged women and put them in a room it spells vibrator.” Meanwhile, Brandi is ready to hand out lap dances to Jill and Vicki. All the ladies get up to dance and Phaedra jokingly says, “Honey, everybody is twerking and working. Marco better go hide.” Tamra acknowledges that tomorrow is the last day and she’s sad because she’s having a lot of fun with the girls. Dorinda ends the night with a toast and the ladies join in to say, “We laughed, we cried, and we made it nice!”
