William H. Macy, this episode was dramatic! It was like watching a ping pong match, back & forth, back & forth between Luann & Bethenny. I will say that at the beginning of the episode I liked B; she was genuinely distraught over the information she had, & she was empathetic & compassionate towards someone other than herself. Luann was predictably shocked & somewhat at a loss for what to do. Once Bethenny actually shared Tom’s indiscretion with Luann, you know the one that should have known from the beginning, I kind of stopped paying attention…it just seemed a little contrived. Lots of crying but no tears.
Okay so as I knew she would, Ramona made this awful situation all about herself & what she went through with Mario…all while wearing Sookie’s bump it. I’m also still mad at her for getting Sonja all riled up about Tom, several episodes ago, because poor Sonja keeps on bemoaning her misfortune at losing her lover. This happened while Lu is tried not to vomit from her devastation. What a bunch of narcissistic bitches…just sayin’. If I hear something along the lines of, “I lost my lover of 10 years,” one more time… On another note, why did Bethenny need consoling after breaking the news. This was premeditated.
Things got much more interesting once the ladies were back in NYC. Luann stayed in a hotel for a few days to figure out what she wanted to do. Tom valiantly fought to get back in Lu’s good graces…surprise! He succeeded. Meanwhile, across town, Dorinda informs Ramona & us that Tom & Lu are trying to recruit her to say that he never cheated. Bethenny has Carole over to explain that she is now angry with Lu because she is ghosting B. They think that Luann is more upset that it happened in such a public way, rather than the fact it happened at all. But as everyone knows, the messenger always takes the bullet sooner or later…as what happened here by the end of the episode.
Fast forward to Bethenny hosting a party to, you guessed it, push another Skinnygirl product on us. Do you think Andy will allow Skinnygirl at the reunion? To be honest, a watermelon lime margarita sounds delish right about now. All the ladies show up, plus the reappearance of John & Michael. Who knew they’d be allowed out of detention? Adam also appeared, sans man bun…his food is now safe to consume y’all. I’m not gonna lie, that party looked fun. A pinata filled with jewelry = GENIUS! The photobooth was also cute.
Luann confronted Bethenny, & her side boob, about continuing to talk about her situation. Lu did look kind of dumb for asking B about the amount of info that she had. If I had to give someone that kind of news, you bet your ass that I will have as many facts as I can exactly for moments just like this. Enraged, Bethenny snarks something along the lines of, “I’ll never tell you anything again.” Looking for a new target for ire, B hones in on Jules for the JoAnne’s dinner nightmare. I was disappointed that Jules backed down under Bethenny’s wrath. She blamed it all on Dorinda, when really Dorinda told Jules to stand up for herself. Everything Jules said at that dinner about Bethenny was spot on.
The season ended with the ladies violently busting open the pinata. Dorinda got the high end jewelry…I hope she doesn’t pawn it for cocaine. Ramona got a necklace, which she plans to re-gift at Luann’s wedding.
