Katie's Got A Hot New Guy On 'Buckhead Shore'-- And Parker's Hella Jealous
Parker and his friends survived the "toxic" drama at the lake house -- but how will they fare now that they're back home in Buckhead?
"This trip has been a lot," Parker said on tonight's Shore episode. "I need to get back. Katie left on terrible terms. Yes, Sav and I are good right now, but I definitely feel like I'm in a weird place."
For her part, Savannah said she finally felt some "clarity" after her and Parker's secret hookup -- and Katie's hasty departure certainly didn't hurt either. But what about Katie?
"I've kept Parker blocked; I haven't talked to him at all," she said, still angry that Parker told Savannah that it was a mistake to be with her. "There's only so much I can take. They can go be miserable together."
With Katie "out of sight, out of mind," the Chicken Man was ready to take his relationship with Sav to the next level. In other words, he brought her to meet his mother Carol Ann.
"My mom's my best friend. I want my mom to like Sav. I want [her] approval," he said.
But in an awkward version of Meet the Parents, Carol Ann -- who just so happens to love Katie like one of her own -- found herself giggling while trying her best to "give [Savannah] a chance" over shared salami and a massive
cooter charcuterie board.
Meanwhile, Katie met up with the tall, dark and handsome
Tommy Tome for a date, resulting in butterflies on K's end despite Tome's "questionable" shirt and "cringy" comments. She later brought him to the crew's Big Sky meetup, where they turned heads and even caused the HBIC to ask: "Who the hell is this guy?"
Savannah was the first to notice that Parker felt rattled seeing his ex with someone "hotter" and "taller" (Katie's words), leading her to realize that the bad in her relationship might outweigh the good.
"His whole demeanor changed once Katie walked in, and it's not fun seeing the guy that you're falling for reacting and getting jealous [over] another girl," she said. "I think I'm just gonna do my own thing before something goes down."
She then broke down in tears, telling Bethania and Katie, "I just don't want to do this Parker sh*t anymore."
What will the future hold for Parker and Savannah? And Katie and Tome? Find out next week on an all-new Buckhead Shore, Thursday at 9/8c.
