  • Carole & her mom campaigned in PA.
    • Love her or hate her, Carole did her part to educate people on the importance of voting.
  • Ramona got a new face for her birthday gift to herself – looked painful.
  • Carole’s Election Party was more of a funeral.
    • Her toast was lovely.
  • Ramona almost ruined her own surprise party, & she’s still the worst.
    • She couldn’t wait for Dorinda to pick her up.
  • Ramona thinks Bethenny needs to move on from their fight.
    • Sonja was actually the voice of reason.yawn

RHONY Recap: Hug It Out

All the episodes on Bravo this week seemed to cram so much into one episode…the hours just fly by!

We opened the episode at Ramona’s Hamptons home at her dinner party; Sonja & Tinsley were the last to arrive.  Tinsley & Dorinda got acquainted & hit if off fairly quickly.   Tinsley immediately shared her life story…as one does.  Dorinda was sweet about it, “We’ve all f*cked up.”  Carole filled Sonja in about the tiff between B & Ramona.  Sonja said that her daughter turned out fine.

I have to say, that pasta looked good at the dinner party, but Ramona definitely did not make it.  Sonja greeted Dorinda & Luann with such a fake, sugary sweet Helllloooo. Dorinda totally shaded Sonja when she announced that she was staying at both Ramona’s & Luann’s.  Then Dorinda went in for the kill.  Don’t mess with Gansta D.  Dorinda could not follow Michelle Obama’s advice.  I was horrified for the guests.Dinner party.gif

Things we learned from this dinner party:

  • Sonja worked for Trump?  Eww.
  • Candace Buschnell is friends with Ramona & Luann.  I wonder if Ramona has inspired any of her bitchy characters.
  • Sonja thinks Ramona should vote.
  • Carole is a champ at eating pasta.
  • Ramona LOVED the drama.
  • Bethenny is spot on with her Home Alone references.
  • Carole dis-invited Ramona to her Election Party; however, Ramona forgot that she dis-invited Sonja to stay with her in the Hamptons.

The next morning at Luann’s brunch, Dorinda & Sonja made up so fast!  Sonja & Luann made up as well, but Sonja proceeded to bend Ramona’s ear about Lu the rest of the time.  Why is she still hung up on Tom?  Does he have a magic penis?  I’m sure this truce is going to last until the end of time… Truce

Back in the city, Bethenny stops by Carole’s where she met the two cats also named Baby. Is Carole fostering cats, or is she keeping them?  I was hoppy happy to hear Bethenny say that she wanted get to a good place with Jason, it must be exhausting to be in constant battle with the father of your child.

Sonja is butt hurt that Tinsley is having lunch with the other girls without her.  Think of it this way – Tinsley is just getting to know her new coworkers.  On a side note, why is Tinsley staying in Sonja’s daughter’s room & can’t bring guys home, but Luann stayed in “the bridal suite” & could do whatever she wanted?

Can someone please get me a transcript of Dorinda & Sonja’s screaming match at dinner?

RHONY Recap: Soft-Core Politics

Y’all, I’m such a dingbat!  I wrote this post last week & forgot to hit “Publish.” DUH.  Blogging 101, right?!?  We’re all human, so sue me.

I love when these gals go to The Hamptons!  I wish I lived in their colonial, shingle style homes!  They’re my favorite!!!  This episode was good, but not that much actually happened.

After arriving in The Hamptons, Bethenny & Carole met Luann, Dorinda, & Ramona for dinner.  Ramona chaotically whirled into the restaurant, plopped down, & promptly went for Bethenny’s jugular.  Normally I do not defend B, she doesn’t need my help after all, but this seemed uncalled for, calculated, & vicious.  Ramona

So, apparently 20+ years ago Bethenny tried to be an actress, but never made it past the D List; she had to do a topless scene once in a movie.  I guess Ramona leaked this to the press found out about it & honed in on Bethenny, calling it her “porno past.”  She kept asking if Bryn had seen it in the tabloids & if B was addressing it with her 6yo daughter.  You read that right, six. years. old.

Y’all, is Ramona chemically imbalanced?  Her train of thought is so difficult to follow.  I really just don’t understand her logic; is she offended by Bethenny?  Is she trying to embarrass Bethenny?  Was there a legit reason for bringing up her nude scene in a D-rated movie, other than being catty & nosy?  I agree with the butler from last week.  I don’t care that Ramona had a horrible childhood, that does not excuse her current god awful behavior.  See a therapist if you can’t cope with your childhood.

Luann loved this ridiculous argument & added her two cents for whatever it’s worth…two cents?  She thought Bethenny desrved Ramona’s tirade because she’s selfish & only thinks about herself.  Bethenny is single, & when Bryn is at her Dad’s for the weekend (or whatever the arrangement is) then B can be as self-centered as she wants. B

The rest of the episode was basically the fall out from this disastrous dinner.  The only person that wants to talk politics with Carole is Carole…and sometimes Dorinda.  Sonja & Dorinda still hate each other.  Bethenny refused to go to Ramona’s dinner party.  The End.

I feel like the hour flew by, but not that much happened…weird.  Was this episode bizarre to anyone else?

RHONY Recap: Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters

As I write this recap, I am eating my weight in Girl Scout Shortbread cookies…perfect for a Mad Hatter Tea Party.  cookies

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.  rolling eyes

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? know it all

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.  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? hangry

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.  big hair

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 ego forehead.

RHONY Recap: It’s Still About Tom

Okay, by now you know how I feel about season openers…BORING.  RHONY didn’t really have a ton going on, but the episode flew by.  Here were my few thoughts about the season premiere.

  1. Bethenny is selling her apartment because it’s no longer Hoppy.  Fredrick from Million Dollar Listing NY is selling it in his corduroy suit.  Bethenny says corduroy weird…”cord-AH-rawr”.  It sold in one day – cash offer, full price!  Do you think the buyers gave B a briefcase full of cash?  Oddly enough, I actually think Bethenny is right to sell the cursed apartment.
  2. Sonja is still pissed that Dorinda didn’t invite her to the Berkshits.  As Ramona would, “MOVE on!”  or “Take a Xanax.”  Sonja’s also in an off-broadway play giving sex lessons.  Sonja’s international following filled up the seats???
  3. Everyone, & I mean EVERYONE, is still obsessed with Tom.  Luann, obviously, is the only one that should be obsessed at this time. About Tom
  4. Ramona is remodeling her apartment…I’m not entirely sure about her taste.  She can’t get over the fact that her contractors name is Mario.  News flash: there are other contractors.  Ramona wants Mario to help her find a man to play with.  Gross.Ramona
  5. Carole & Adam have moved in together; oh I’m sorry, they are shacking up.  They also got two new kit-tens, as Carole says.   Carole is obsessed with the election – this season was filmed in the fall of 2016.  I kinda liked Carole’s political Twitter feed.  She was clearly a biased journalist, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
  6. Dorinda & Carole have decided to be friends again, & that no woman wants to see a cop in a thong – CORRECT (talking about Luann’s bachelorette party).  Blue Lives Matter, ladies. Cop
  7. Sonja is donating clothes to Dress For Success per Bethenny’s request.  How the hell does Sonja remember all the stories surrounding her clothes?  They took this opportunity to shit all over Luann & Tom.  Ugh.
  8. Bethenny got two super cute new puppies, Biggie & Smallz.  I’m sad that Cookie is so old…we not see her next season.  Puppies
  9. Sherlock Singer is still taking everyone opportunity to find out dirt on Luann &/or Tom…as often as she can.  Am I the only one that feels like Ramona is only friends with Luann when it is convenient to her purposes?  With friends like that, who needs enemies?  I blieve Ramona’s toast to Luann’s pending nuptials was something along the lines of, “Break a leg.  No, seriously, break your f’ing leg.”  That’s what I heard anyways.
  10. Did anyone else think that the blonde cast members’ hair looked slightly pink-ish in their confessionals? Frenchie

Did I miss anything?

RHONY Cast Analysis – Updated

The Real Housewives of New York premiers April 5th.  This is my favorite of all the cities!  These ladies always bring it.  Last season took a real dark turn, so I can’t wait to see how this season shakes out.  Sonja’s drinking again, & that alone is bound to stir shit up.  Season 9 Cast

Bethenny:  I have a love-hate relationship with Bethenny, but last season was almost unbearable.  She’s always been snarky, which is why I love her.  From one snarkologist to another…  Here’s the thing, there’s a reason why there is a saying “Pick on someone your own size.”  Last season Bethenny really seemed to get a hard-on for skewering “weaker” housewives…she kind of lived below the belt.  Cc: Jules, Sonja, Luann.  She did it with Kristen too.  It’s just a really ugly color on her.  At the end of last season, I wrote an open letter to Bethenny which you can read here.  Bethenny.gif

Carole:  I really like Carole.  A lot.  The beginning of last season was a little rough for me because of her tiff with Luann…I was clearly way over before they were.  I think she’s cool, smart, & has great style.  I miss seeing her friendship with Heather, as I don’t love the Mean Girls thing she has going on with B, but I digress.  However, I do love following her on Twitter.  I found it a bit strange that she kind of has a relationship with Meghan King Edmonds, through their dogs no less. Carole

Dorinda:  I love Dorinda Meddler!  I love that she meddles & turns shit up!  We need her kind of drama.  DramaShe has kind of a Rinna vibe, but I love Rinna too!  I think that neither HW is malicious with their intent to stir the pot, but they both know they have a job to do.  It’s called job security y’all.  This season I’d like to hear less about the other women’s disdain for John, as it is none of their business.

Luann:  Over the years, I’ve really come to enjoy Luann.  We’ve really seen her evolve from being “all uncool” to cool…as cool as she can be anyways.  This season hasn’t even started yet & I’m already sick of it being about Tom.  If they’re are happy then the other women need to let it be.  I’m talking to you Ramona.  LuAnn

Ramona:  I absolutely cannot stand Ramona.  I think the way she treats people is downright ugly.  Ugh, she is the worst!  Ramona rivals Vicki as my least favorite housewife of all time.  Everything she does is self-serving in some way, she’s never genuinely happy for anyone, she’s super competitive with her friends, & she’s just too high maintenance for me.  Ugh – I can’t with her. Ramona

Sonja:  On the flip side – I love Sonja with the sexy j.  How she can be friends with Ramona, I do not understand?  Sonja is her own special brand of high maintenance, but in the best way.  She’s hilarious & somewhat delusional, which makes her so endearing.  I can’t figure out if she’s ditsy or somehow playing us all for fools.  LOVE her!  Sonja

Tinsley: She is the newest housewife, & from what I can tell she is a poor little rich girl tragic NY socialite fallen from grace.  Of course she is friends with Sonja…you know one party girl to another.  Dior has named a lipstick after her, which is cool.  She’s been seen & heard in the fashion industry.   Tinsley is an author, a troubled love life, & a home collection line.

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I may actually miss Jules.  I hope she shows up every once in a while as friend for Dorinda or something.  Although, I won’t miss hearing about her Asian Jewish heritage.  It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if Heather or Kristen showed up a for a party or two either.

Will y’all be watching?  Don’t forget to look for my Southern Charm recap late tonight or in the morning!

RHONY: An Open Letter to Bethenny

Now that the season is officially over, I feel can get a few things off my chest about the one & only Queen B.

Dear Bethenny Frankel,

I really miss the strong feisty woman you used to be.  What has happened to you?  Where is the girl of yester-year that lovingly snarked on all her costars, & everyone was fair game?  I miss your equal opportunity snarky confessionals.  I felt like you always said what everyone was thinking, now the targeted cruelty is painful to watch.

This season in particular, you brought the entire season to a level so low it’s a wonder we could even see it at all.  You turned Carole into a mean whiny brat, much like yourself.  Both of you used to snark so beautifully, but together you’re horrible, diabolical mean girls.  Careful – your ugly black heart is starting to show.

Haven’t you ever heard that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar?  This season you weaved a complicated web of vitriol & cruelty, & none of your costars were spared.  You even went after your beloved Carole at one point; however, more often than not she was your cohabitant of said web. Charlotte's Web

I feel that all the focus you give towards spewing hatred must be exhausting you, because girl you’re looking haggard.  You remind me of skeletor, Marc Anthony…rough.  Marc Anthony
You are very reminiscent of the Bethenny that treated the ex-husband like a piece of gum you can’t get off the bottom of your shoe on Bethenny Ever After.  You also remind me of Kelly Bensimon telling you that “She’s up here & you’re down there,” but now you’re Kelly treating your costars horrifically.

The way you don’t seem to care recognize that you are horrible to your castmastes shows your true colors; perhaps you’re the Village Idiot?  Treating people like they are undeserving of your time does you no favors.  Perhaps anger management classes would benefit you, or you should go back to your therapist?  Everyone you encounter deserves some basic level of respect, simply due to the fact that you’re both human.  The way you treat people is disgusting & deplorable, you should be ashamed of your behavior.

I would love to see a strong, happy, supportive, & open-minded Bethenny next time you’re on my TV, whether it be RHONY or another platform.  Please de-compress after this past season of RHONY, & come back refreshed & better than ever.

Kiss Hug,

RHONY Recap: Reunion of Hypocrites, Cocaine, & Vocab Lessons

As per ushe, I was babysitting Wednesday night & was late to watching the reunion.  First things first, let’s talk fashion.  Reunion

Jules looked great & healthy! She lost a hermit of a husband, but managed to gain a little weight & she has never looked better!

Sonja looked beautiful, as always. She almost glowed, she was so luminescent.

Dorinda looked good. Her hair was shiny; she looked healthy & sober. Dorinda does love a sequin & bedazzled outfit.  Fetish?

Luann looked like maybe she has put on some weight, but I think it was just the way she was sitting.  Either that, or jumpsuits are not very flattering to her…

Bethenny looked fine as usual…nothing special. I thought her face looked a little gaunt. Did her jumpsuit (dress?) have a cape on the back or Tinkerbell wings?

Ramona has the worst fashion sense & always has. She doesn’t seem to know what is age appropriate.  Spaghetti straps, really?  At least she wasn’t wearing macrame.

Carole looked like a feather duster. Enough said.  I did like the braid in her hair.

Now onto the show, it started off friendly as they usually do.  I thought we were glimpsing the old Bethenny, but I was quickly proven wrong…to my dismay.  Andy quickly delved into Dorinda & John’s relationship.  Dorinda said that it is hard for people that knew her in her marriage to like John.  He’s very different than her husband, visually.  What does that even mean?  They weren’t twins, so of course he is visually different.  Duh.  Andy then brought up the eighth Housewife, Dorinda’s alleged drug use.  Bethenny refused to discuss it by implying that she could destroy Dorinda in the process.  Why even dangle that carrot then?  All of the women, with the exception of Sonja, keep mum & ask Andy to move it along while looking shifty & uncomfortable.  Sonja flat out says, “We all know you do drugs.”  Dorinda adamantly denied drug use…perhaps John drugs her on the sly?   Dorinda

Andy briefly moves onto Jules, the divorce, & how she’s doing, which okay.  Then onto Ramona’s love life.  She shouldn’t be allowed to talk.  Is Ramona constantly trying to play it coy?  Or is she just that stupid & offensive?  I have to wonder if gay people find it offensive when they are referred to as “The Gays” or “My Gays” by any of the Real Housewives.  I’m offended & I’m straight.  We also learn that Luann cannot pronounce Radziwill, Sonja, or Switzerland. Ramona cannot pronounce didn’t.

Things finally get more interesting when the Bershits Berkshires are brought up.  Does Dorinda really eat a week old birthday cake?  Can we collectively all say EWWWW? Although, the sentiment was nice to share her cake with Hannah’s cake.  Andy then deep dives into the Bethenny slut-shaming Luann propaganda.  B could not admit that her behavior was disgusting & that she slut-shamed Lu.  Bethenny became a little unhinged, which seems to be her MO.  Luann called out Bethenny’s hypocrisy by pointing out that she is dating a married man, while still married herself.  In the state of New York, legal separation is recognized with a signed decree.  separation

So whether or not Bethenny was “cheating” is hearsay, but she was definitely overly defensive, which to me made her look guilty as charged.  I thought calling her boyfriend’s daughter was uncalled for, low, & embarrassing.  This made a bad situation worse, & seemed very contrived.  I really used to love Bethenny, but maybe it’s time for another hiatus from RHONY?

I went back through Twitter & found my favorite Tweets from Part 1: 1.11.21.31.4

What did y’all think of the reunion?  I can’t wait to see Part 2!

RHONY Recap: How Could You Do This To Me?

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.  DelusionalThis 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.  Party

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.

RHONY: Baga-Tom

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.  Rolling eyes

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.  friends with benefits

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!  trombone

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…
