As I write this recap, I am eating my weight in Girl Scout Shortbread cookies…perfect for a Mad Hatter Tea Party.
We open the episode with Sonja asking Connor for chocolate, so Beatrice must be visiting right? Meanwhile, Tinsley is out in the street unloading her bedding from an Uber Black. Poor Tinsley has to sleep in Sonja’s daughter’s room? She says it’s temporary until she decides to live uptown or downtown. Such tough decisions.
Over at Bethenny’s, she is dressed as a cat to see if Carole will compliment her? That wig tho… Ramona stopped by to join the fray & refused to take her shoes off. As B predicted, Ramona stepped on Biggie, or was it Smallz? It was Ramona’s passive aggressive way of saying that she was upset about not knowing she got puppies. Carole got two new kit-tens & Ramona didn’t care. They move on to gossip about Luann & Tom…again.
In another part of town, Luann & Victoria shop for hats for their giant heads. This is prep for Sonja’s Mad Hatter party. Does anyone else think that Victoria is looking more & more like Luann? They of course rehash the Sonja/Tom “jealousy.” Look, we all know that Tom & Sonja were not in love, but can we drop the Tom subject already?
Back at B’s, the gals are still shit-talking. They’ve move on to Tinsley’s fall from grace. They move on to Carole’s Election night party, which started some bickering. Twitter does not like the election talk…I guess we’re not over it yet. Too soon? Bethenny calling Carole a Know-It-All is rich. I wonder what Heather Thomson would say about that?
The next morning we wake up with Tinsley & Sonja. Sonja is trying to match-make for Tinsley. Tins is very upfront with her story, which is kind of refreshing. Ramona met up Dorinda for a little cryotherapy; surprise, surprise – Ramona ditches the treatment for a date. She’s really fond of double-booking herself. Funny how she needs to research cryotherapy, but not who she’s voting for. Dorinda is still annoyed that Sonja is talking about the Bershires…still. Sonja needs to let it go.
Moving on to “A Day in the Life of…” montage. We learned how Tinsley became Blair Waldorf. She curled her hair & walked a red carpet. Y’all, Hannah is finally moving out of Dorinda’s apartment! Yet, she still calls her mommy… Why the hell would anyone want Hannah to buy a burnt orange sofa? Even a frat house at the University of Texas wouldn’t do that. Bethenny likes to clean & organize…come clean out my closet please. We snuggle up to Cookie – I’m worried the bitch will quit sooner than we’d like.
Meanwhile, Sonja & Tinsley are setting up for the Mad Hatter party, where everyone ultimately dressed as Mona Lisas. One guest opted out of the party because the pavers are too far apart for heels. #ParkAvenueProbs Ramona conveniently forgets people to put them in their place. The Butler is borrowed from the Morgans, so he can say whatever he wants…for the record I agree with him.
Ramona was hangry & admitted that that is not the best time to meet her. Is she hangry all the time?
Looks like next week the ladies will be in the Hampton’s – my favorite! Did Ramona say to Carole that Sonja hasn’t “burred the hodget yet.” Carole’s look of confusion was the best. GiGi is giving me Alex McCord vibes. What the hell is Luann wearing?
This party is boring me so far… I did like Bethenny’s dress, not so much Luann’s Pollyanna dress. Ramona hones in on Tinsley & her single status & lack of children. Luann pulls Sonja aside to confront her about Tom & Dorinda…you can fast forward through this part, it’s nothing new. Sonja could’ve used some velcro rollers & dry shampoo to create some volume in her hair, but maybe that’s just my Texas ways.
Favorite Tweets from the night:
What did you all think of tonight’s show? I thought Ramona’s confessional look was awful. She needs the swoop of her bangs to cover that
Until next week…
