OMG! I think Bravo & ABC are in cahoots about teasing previews. On the other hand, I loved all the “Tom”-centric puns made last night.
Bethenny struggled on when & how to tell Luann about the salacious pictures of Tom; however, she manages to tell Ramona & Carole. Bethenny did seem genuinely distraught over the situation; Ramona, however, was so gleeful that everything about her grosses me out. Ro vows to keep her mouth shut & immediately runs to Sonja to drop the a-TOM-ic bomb. B showed the pics to Carole who confirmed tat it was definitely Tom-cat.
Luann joins Ramona for manicures, where it is so disgustingly obvious that Ramona is salivating over the opportunity to break her vow of silence. She not-so-subtly asks Lu about her convo with Bethenny, to which Luann said that it was weird. Lu reminded Ro that she still had plenty of time to get to know Tom during their engagement…sounds like a solid plan.
Sonja, Ramona, & Bethenny arrive first to the restaurant for dinner where they continue to harp on the Tom-Luann-Sonja-Ramona love square & the cheating for an HOUR & A HALF! If my friends showed up that late to dinner, we may not be friends for too much longer. Also, I would never wait that long. According to Sonja, Tom did tell her that he met Luann & really liked her. Why Sonja remains so upset I just don’t get. Did she think she was going to fix Tom & get him for herself? Is she thinking what does Lu have that I don’t have for Tom to choose her? Is she jealous? The first rule of “friends with Benefits” is don’t get too attached or emotionally involved – that never ends well. Watch that movie with Justin Timberlake & Mila Kunis.
Finally the other women show up & Ramona rushes to their table so Bethenny doesn’t have to sit next to anyone else. This is so weird, but I guess B is trying to avoid Luann. The other gals were late because Carole split her pants. This infuriates Bethenny & she goes on a rant against her BFF. Dorinda tried to resuscitate the dinner by incoherently announcing that they would all be going to the Sandbar the next day. This sounded fun to me, but I also assumed they would be going to a sandbar & swimming with stingrays like I did in the Grand Caymans. Turns out it is like a boat potluck with food & cocktails in a really shallow part of the water, thus calling it a sand bar. Y’all, this still sounds way more fun to me than Bagatelle; plus if Ramona’s going to Bagatelle then I’d want to be anywhere else. This is yet another example of why I cannot stand Ramona Singer. She did not plan this trip, yet feels the need to constantly insult every idea that Dorinda comes up with. Some friend she is.
After dinner Sonja & Bethenny head back to the hotel where they bond a little more & call Tom to confront him for cheating. The other ladies paint the town red & get shit faced. Jules raped a trombone. Dorinda misses John, Lu misses Tom, & Jules does NOT miss Michael. HAHAHA!
According to Ramona’s face the next morning she got laid, which you would think would make her nice, but no. Ramona flat out lied to Dorinda saying she was going to “lay down & rest” instead of going to the Sandbar. Sonja adds to her Tom-tale that the she was supposed to meet his mother around Thanksgiving. Like us all, Dorinda is appalled to still be talking about this & thinks they will actually make it down the aisle. Keep in mind that Dorinda doesn’t know about the cheating yet.
Queen B rudely called Dorinda the Village Idiot because she see’s what she wants to see. Perhaps I’m the village idiot too then, because from where I’m sitting Tom’s story doesn’t seem to change regarding Ramonja, yet Sonja’s & Ramona’s stories continually get more involved & elaborate. And, by the way, why does it even matter? Luann has already said, MANY many times, that she doesn’t care what happened BL.
B & Ramonja go to Bagetlle, while the rest on the gang goes to the Sandbar…including Carole (What?!?! Say it ain’t so!) All the ladies like Carole so much better when her head isn’t stuck up Bethenny’s tight ass. Me too! Luann met some fellows that sang Chic C’est La Vie, which she & I adored. Carole ventured out in a canoe to get food for their boat, & got a hot dog for herself & ice cream for the others. Bagatelle was a major snooze fest for us viewers.
Back on land, they all go out to one last boring dinner. Dorinda calls out Ramona for lying about going to Bagatelle. Dorinda thinks Ramona is a dog that bites. She’ll pat her on the ass, but not on the face…whatever that means.
We end the episode with the beginnings of Bethenny’s horrible news about Tom to LuAnn.

What did y’all think of the build up to this episode & the episode itself? I thought it was kind of a letdown.
Until next week…
