RHONY Recap: The Snooze Cruise

I’ve struggled to write this recap because this season of RHONY has turned into a real snooze-fest. ¬†Boring

Yesterday, I posted a Tweet asking for help recapping & luckily I got a few responses. ūüôā ¬†Thanks Remi & Lily’s Mimi! ¬†RemiLily

I think this sums it up quite nicely, but since I have a job to do I’ll throw in my two cents.

  1. Bethenny’s vagina has once again ruined another cast trip. ¬†Instead of Hawaii, they are now going to Miami. ¬†Hawaii thanks you. ¬†I guess they’ll have to pretend to be Gidget¬†in FL.
  2. Sonja embarrassed her daughter at Parent’s Weekend because she wore a baby seal on her head. ¬†Sonja
  3. Jules has no concept of what pool shoes are.  Who wears suede to the pool?
  4. We’re still talking about Tom of the town, the slut-bag-hoe.
  5. Jules visited her parents.  Guess what?  One is Jewish & the other is Asian.
  6. Luann’s schoolgirl excitement about the boy asking her to the dance is getting a little old. ¬†sixteen candles
  7. These ladies wouldn’t know how to be happy for someone, even if they were given an instruction manual.
  8. I secretly want this cruise to turn into an episode of Gilligan’s Island. ¬†gilligan
  9. Ramona is so embarrassing.  She thinks she is so much hotter than she is.  Poor Avery.  She was a real mess with the bathing suit photo shoot.
  10. I feel like both Sonja & Ramona are making WAAAAY more out of their involvement with Tom, than what happened in real life.
  11. Bethenny loves that she has a bombshell of a secret to hold of Luann.

My favorite tweets from the night:  16.116.216.3

What did y’all think about the episode this week? ¬†Boring, right? I was distracted by all the DNC stuff & Hillary Clinton making history!

Until next week!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

RHONY Recap: The Big Napple

Y’all, what is with this Season of RHONY? ¬†Ever since they left the Bershires, & Greystone Manor, it has turned into a total snooze-fest. ¬†I could easily have taken a nap during this week’s episode…in fact I might’ve, just with my eyes open.

So, all I got from this episode was this:

  1. Ramona ALWAYS manages to get the best room she wants on group trips.
  2. Mohegan Sun was the most depressing Housewives trip in all the franchises.
  3. Carole & Bethenny are this close to becoming lesbian lovers. #mazel B & C
  4. Carole & Adam have a weird relationship. ¬†She’s at a 7.5, while he’s at a 10.
  5. Jules doesn’t know how to potty train, or wipe for that matter. #gross ¬†Jules
  6. Bethenny is taking little Bryn to Aspen, regardless of doctor’s orders & her “declining” health.
  7. Luann got engaged. ¬†I’m not a fan of yellow diamonds. ¬†Sorry not sorry. ¬†Luann
  8. Ramona has no boundaries or etiquette, thus Dorinda hosted Lu’s engagement party.
  9. The real cast trip will be Hawaii. ¬†Think they’ll fall in a volcano?
  10. Sonja was a sourpuss towards Luann & her happiness.  Shame, shame, I know your name.   Sonja

Tweets of the night:  15.115.215.315.415.515.6

The tweets were harder to get, as my feed was full of the shenanigans going on at the Republican National Convention.  What did you all think of this week?

Until next time, I hope you have a fantastic weekend!!!

RHONY Recap: Jules Found Her Cojones

This week’s recap will once again be short, as not much happened – except for the usual screaming match. ¬†If you are on Team Bethenny then you may want to stop reading now. ¬†This episode was a classic tale of “if you dish it, you gotta take it.”

I will preface this by saying that for the last 7+ years I have staunchly been on Team Bethenny. ¬†But, something this season is off. ¬†Her past snarky comments were always met with a chuckle from me as I was often thinking similar thoughts; however, this season she seems to relish being cruel & take pleasure in being a Mean Girl with Carole. ¬†Perhaps Bravo & Andy Cohen have given her too much power? ¬†She now has a radio show on Andy’s Sirius station, she is now an Executive Producer on the RHONY, & has said (on her radio show) that she gave final approval for Jules to be allowed on the cast. ¬†Bethenny boss

At dinner, after Luann stormed off, Jules confronted B about her horrible behavior. ¬†Jules found her cojones & didn’t back down. ¬†Bethenny, on the other hand, totally missed the point Jules was tried¬†to make. ¬†Jules said very clearly, with verbs & all, that B uses humor at other people’s expense & is intentionally cruel. ¬†Jules, calmly & assertively, proceeded to say that she makes fun of herself so these bitches won’t to bring humor to an otherwise serious, scary situation (eating disorder). ¬†Bethenny instead raged¬†about her own issues with anorexia, which Carole chimed right in on in complete support of B. ¬†Carole also that talking behind your friend’s back to other friend’s is par for the course – umm pretty sure you & B do not consider Jules a friend. ¬†When Jules tried to defend herself, Bethenny screamed, “Don’t yell at me. ¬†You don’t get to be the only one to talk.” ¬†This from the woman who never lets anyone else get a word in edge wise. ¬†As B would say, her reaction was disproportionate to the conversation.¬†Jules

Jules wrote a great blog for Bravo, which you can read here. We are on Planet Bethenny

The rest of the episode was pretty uneventful. ¬†Luann scolded Ramona, one on one, about being a horrible friend…nothing new there. ¬†Carole hosted Dorinda & Bethenny for lunch while Adam made cauliflower pizza. ¬†They said Adam was a hot chef; is this true? ¬†I don’t see it. ¬†I’m worried his hair will be in the food…extra flavor I guess. ¬†Sonja hosted a dinner party, where Jules introduced her to a weirdo named Rocco. ¬†John was back & well behaved. ¬†Luann got engaged!

At the end of the episode the ladies headed to Mohegan Sun via party bus, which I learned from my Twitter pals that it is a super fun casino in Connecticut. ¬†I thought it was an Indian (Native American) Tribe or a movie with Kevin Costner. ¬†Bethenny bitched about Jules to Dorinda, within hearing range, which was very passive aggressive. ¬†The one beacon of light in this episode was that B FINALLY apologized to Sonja. ¬†See y’all, miracles do happen. ¬†Hallelujah! ¬†hallelujah

Here are my favorite Tweets from the night:  14.114.214.314.4

What did y’all think of this episode? ¬†Are you Team B or Team Jules? ¬†Do you think Dorinda stirred the pot? ¬†I really hope Andy skewers Bethenny & Carole at the Reunion.

Until next time…

RHONY Recap: Reunited & It Feels So Good?

Y’all this episode was another ¬†dud, so much so that I considered not doing a recap. ¬†But alas, I am here for you!

Bethenny had a Skinnygirl event to attend, SHOCKER!  But, I did appreciate the product placement clutch & red hair.  B is good with a theme, but she is making me rethink my favorite color being red.  I think she trademarked it as hers.B Red

Jules went to her checkup to see how her vag was healing. ¬†“Will it be a perfect little pistachio again?” ¬†I think her doctor actually gagged, & the pistachio industry took a dive last night. ¬†JulesOn a side note, what was with her doctor’s lack of face movement while he spoke? ¬†Did he recently¬†have jaw surgery? ¬†That’s how I talked for 6 months after my jaw surgery…

Moving on, Ramonja took dance lessons from one of the gals from Sushi Rocks. ¬†This was the funniest thing I’ve seen in awhile. ¬†They should never take a dancing class sober, & should probably stick to Turtle Time – instead they danced like Elaine. ¬†Elaine

B cancelled her surgery & saw an Internist instead, so to celebrate Bethenny hosted a get together with Ramona, Dorinda, & Carole where two kinds of tea were served.  Of course Ramona reverts back to her true self & stirs shit up about Luann, as per ushe.  Gossip

In B’s confessional, she accused Luann of being a narcissist, which is the pot calling the kettle black if ever there was one. #duh ¬†Bethenny & Luann

Of course Dorinda reenacts the tea party for Luann the next morning at breakfast (???). ¬†Dorinda’s impression of Ramona was spot on. ¬†Bravo. ¬†Well done.

Finally all the women are together in one scene for dinner. ¬†Not sure of the purpose for the dinner, I assume Dorinda was the host (???) & she was trying to reunite the group? ¬†Carole & Luann sat next to each other & had a really lovely chat. ¬†say whatI hope we can now move on from Apology-Gate. ¬†The women were all talking over each when Ramona arrived. ¬†She basically construction worker whistled for the gals to notice her entrance. ¬†Ramona's entranceI can’t with this lady, Ramona is too much; she also fits in to Bethenny’s description of a narcissist.

Half the table was discussing Carole & Adam’s sex life, while Luann quietly confronted Ramona about talking shit behind Lu’s back. ¬†Slowly the other girls chimed in, & Bethenny opened her favorite box Pandora’s Box by mentioning that Ramona, Sonja, & Luann share the same men…because you know, Harry & Tom are the only eligible men in NYC. ¬†Sonja chimed in the she & Tom have been F*** Buddies for 10 years. ¬†I feel bad for Lu, these women are being bitches. ¬†I don’t think they are jealous of her happiness with Tom, but they certainly aren’t being supportive or¬†nice. ¬†They take so much glee in tearing Lu’s relationship apart, but it doesn’t warrant the dreaded “To Be Continued…” as the episode finished.

My favorite Tweets from the night:  13.113.213.313.413.5

What did y’all think of this episode? ¬†We’re on Week 13 & nothing much has happened since we left the Berkshires.

Until next week!

RHONY Recap: Bloody Bits

You guys, was it just me or was this episode lame? ¬†This recap will¬†be a bit short because I was dealing with work stuff while watching, & you know…it was kinda boring.

A few thoughts on tonight’s show:

  1. Was Luann even in this episode?  I know she was talked about a lot, but did she make an appearance?  Where is Lu
  2. Ramonja is back? ¬†Their apology practice was pretty funny & Ramona’s Bethenny impression was spot on. ¬†R as B
  3. Ramona is still the worst friend alive.  Her new name shall be Ramona: the Horrible friend.  Ramona 2.gif
  4. Jules has decided to start an Asian juice (tea???) business.  I love that she managed to keep it a secret from Michael.  I wonder if Jules already knew that the end of her marriage was imminent?
  5. Poor Bethenny is really, really ill.  That scene in Home Goods was a bit scary РI thought she was going to pass out.  Thank goodness Dorinda was there to mother her, which she needed.
  6. LOVE that B & D like shopping at Home Goods, even if it was a product placement. ¬†Stars, they’re just like us.
  7. Jules also broke her vagina on a window. ¬†It reminded me of when you’re little & fall off your bike & land on that bar.
  8. This dog wedding was¬†such a crock of shit. ¬†They spent a lot of money to raise a bit of money for charity. ¬†Somehow, I don’t think the charity got their money’s worth. ¬†Although, the cute pooches were a nice break from the human bitches we normally deal with. ¬†All of be like:

    9. Ramona cannot cut a cake to save her life. ¬†If she had done that at one of Heather ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Dubrow’s parties, she would be out. ¬†Cake

I’ll be house sitting next week, so I may be sitting poolside instead of blogging. ¬†Maybe I’ll surprise you.

RHONY Recap: You’re Not Invited

Y’all, we are only a little over half way through the season. ¬†I feel like this episode was just a filler episode, but still good. ¬†Seems like more drama is to come!

So, this episode starts off 3 weeks after Ramona’s lame holiday party where everyone was dressed as some version of Michael Jackson. ¬†Sonja has decided to stop drinking to get back in the group’s good graces. ¬†Honestly, I don’t think it will help. ¬†She’s on the outs until Ramona & Bethenny decide she can come in & play. ¬†Back at Morgan Manor, Luann & Sonja rehash Tipsy Girl…for the umpteenth time. ¬†Sonja asks if she should have called it Fat Tipsy Bitches – I kinda like that better than both names. ¬†Sonja was more hurt by Dorinda’s exclusion from the Berkshits. ¬†Luann quickly gushes that she is moving out because she’s in love with her soulmate, & probably getting married. ¬†Sonja’s expression was priceless. ¬†“My Tom?” shes says in her confessional. ¬†We then learned that Sonja also hooked up with Tomcat. ¬†Seriously, these gals need to branch out & meet new men…Harry & Tom can not be the only eligible men in NYC. ¬†Below Deck Mediterranean just had 5 single bachelors their age on, so maybe they could¬†reach out to Andy Cohen for their numbers.

Across town, Queen B has gathered Dorinda, Jules, Carole, & Ramona for drinks to pitch a tequila trip to Mexico for research. ¬†Who wouldn’t want to go to Mexico & get shit-faced while eating chips & guac out of a sombero? ¬† Then Ramona brings the convo to a halt by asking if Luann was invited. ¬†Notice how Ramona had no problem excluding her BFF Sonja? ¬†Carole said that if Lu went then she wouldn’t. ¬†B replied with, “then I won’t go if Carole doesn’t go.” ¬†Ramona, as the least go with the flow girl, says that she will do what everyone else wants & just goes with the flow. ¬†Lu & Son

Carole visited Bethenny at her apartment. ¬†Oddly, it looked like B had an intern? ¬†The conversation quickly turned to relationships. ¬†Carole doesn’t like to let anyone get too close. ¬†She compared fostering a khit-ten to losing loved ones – Bethenny wasn’t buying what Carole was selling. ¬†You could tell by the squinty eyes. ¬†That’s a weird comparison though, right? ¬†Also, Carole the only reason to have a cat is so you can name it Meowllory. ¬†#duh ¬†Bethenny confessed that she has reconsidered her position on never getting married again. ¬†Carole creates a temporary world. ¬†Carole can’t get out of relationships & Bethenny has trouble getting into relationships. ¬†It ended up being a surprisingly introspective & somewhat relate-able conversation between these two. ¬†Albiet, weird. ¬†Bethenny 3 Dorinda met up with Ms. Morgan for a manicure. ¬†Dorinda bluntly tells Sonja that Ramona is no longer on her side. ¬†Is it the end of Ramonja as we know it? ¬†Dorinda, the biggest blabber mouth in NYC, told Sonja that she & Luann weren’t invited to Mexico. ¬†“Hate to tell ya,” grins Dorinda. ¬†Sonja then shared that she quit drinking. ¬†On a side note, I would totally have been interested in a Sonja Morgan Toaster Oven.

Across town, Carole shows up at Adam’s apartment. ¬†I have to say, Adam should only ever wear his hair in a man-bun. ¬†He forced Carole to help him make a Vegan chocolate cake, which sounds as appealing as a mammogram. ¬†On the Upper East Side, Ramona is hosting a Hair Extensions lunch with Avery. ¬†This is the same extensions Ramona is sporting…you know the ones that are so long they are obviously fake. ¬†Luann showed up because ramona wanted to give her a makeover. ¬†Once again they rehashed the Berkshits. ¬†Luann is delusional that her & Carole are now cool. ¬†Luann proceeded to gush to Avery, Ramona was there too, about Tom. ¬†Ramona could not be less enthused about this relationship. ¬†She¬†took such pleasure¬†bursting Lu’s bubble by gossiping about Tom’s friendship with his ex. ¬†Even Avery was embarrassed for her mom. ¬†Ramona backed off by saying the she was happy for Lu, while crossing her fingers behind her back. ¬†Ramona.gif

Later that night John, Dorinda, Jules, & Michael met for dinner at STK. ¬†I believe this is the restaurant that Giuliana & Bill Rancic own? ¬†Jules is clearly pissed at Michael; in light of today’s divorce news, it is now glaringly obvious that Jules & Michael have marital issues. ¬†It’s clear that Michael is no longer invested in his marriage to her. ¬†I wonder if he knew Josh on Ashley Madison? ¬†Dorinda proceeded to drunkenly advise Jules on her marriage.

Bethenny & Luann met for a drink & had the. weirdest. time. EVER. ¬†Luann talked a mile a minute & didn’t let B get a word in edge wise. ¬†Weird, right? ¬†Bethenny said that Lu is on Crystal Meth & not a good listener. ¬†Luann asked if Carole was now B’s life partner & stuck B with the bill. ¬†LuAnnOn a serious note, I truly hope Bethenny’s health scare is now better & a non-issue.

RHONY Recap: The Berkshits

Wow-wee! ¬†Where do I even begin? ¬†Scary Island may have been surpassed tonight in the Berkshires. ¬†The ladies picked up where they left off last week, with the great Skinnygirl name debate. ¬†Bethenny, once again, tactfully informed Luann that she, in fact, came up with Skinnygirl on her own. ¬†We get it…let’s move on. ¬†Obviously too much to ask for. ¬†Luann moved on & asked B about her personal life, to which Bethenny clammed up. ¬†B then got up & moved around the table to Ramona’s side & proceeded to unleash her pent up rage towards Luann. ¬†By the way, Luann was on the other side of Ramona. ¬†#shehasears ¬†You know it’s bad when Ramona is trying to shush someone. ¬†Lu might have pushed the wrong button by saying that B’s hair looks like hers (it kinda does).

Normally, I am #TeamBethenny, but she came to the Berkshires guns blazing & aimed right at Luann. ¬†She really let Luann have it, multiple times. ¬†She voiced everyone’s past grievances (I think only one point was B’s) towards Lu & screeched until her throat was raw. ¬†Here’s the deal, I don’t think you get to unleash on someone about issues that: a) aren’t your own. b) in the past c) may or may not be true. ¬†I feel like B aired a bunch of dirty laundry, threw Sonja under the bus unnecessarily with Luann, slut-shamed Lu, & made everyone else uncomfortable. ¬†If you’re mad at someone just confront them about the specific issue at that time, in this case Lu’s claims towards SG’s name sake, there are¬†zero advantages to bringing up the past that you have supposedly moved on from.

Dorinda felt bad, as she saved Sonja from the line of fire, but put Lu right in the cross-hairs of B’s sniper. ¬†Bethenny fought her Skinnygirl battle, Carole’s Adam fiasco, & Ramona’s Tom gossip – all as absolute truth. ¬†I think she should take a closer look at those sources. ¬†Ramona is rarely telling the whole truth, & Carole can’t seem to put her big girl panties on… ¬†Meanwhile, Carole arrived amidst the fighting, called Luann a man based on the first voice she heard, & gushed over Dorinda’s holiday decor. ¬†Back¬†at the Bitch Sesh, Ramona was pissed that Luann is now dating her sloppy seconds, Tom. ¬†Shouldn’t she be mad at Dorinda for setting them up if she really was so hot & heavy with him? ¬† i would think that D & Ro, being such good friends, would have discussed¬†Ramona’s relationship with Tom. ¬†Ro is just upset that Lu got the man. ¬†My verdict is that no “Girl Code” was broken here because apparently Harry & Tom are the only single men in NYC, so the pickings are slim. ¬†Geez!

Carole was upset that she didn’t know that Luann would be at Grey Stone Manor. ¬†If I remember correctly, Dorinda did mention to¬†her, at Bethenny’s caviar party, that Lu would be there. ¬†Remember the whole conversation about protecting each other? ¬†At this point Carole needs to move on, it’s saying more about her than Luann now. ¬†#pettymuch Meanwhile, in every room someone is talking about somebody else. ¬†The haircut is brought up over, & over, & over; this is not the real issue, so why are we still talking about this??? ¬†Once again B goes off about the past. #scaryislandmuch ¬†This all happened before the first commercial break…just so you know.

Wouldn’t you love to be Dorinda’s house keeper during all this? ¬†Staying out of the fray, but witnessing it all first hand. ¬†I wish she had a confessional. ¬†Dorinda & Carole are upstairs, & Dorinda is stressing over the situation. ¬†Carole, blindly defending B, says that she shouldn’t have invited Lu. ¬†Ummm, up to this getaway, the only person with an issue with Lu was Carole. ¬†This shtick is getting old…seeing a new side of Carole that I’m not loving. ¬†Back downstairs, B is “sick of the way Luann lives.” ¬†Bethenny, you don’t get a fucking say in how Lu lives! ¬†Sonja may have said that Luann brings guys home every night, but Ramona repeated it to you…so clearly it’s unbiased in Ro’s favor, right? ¬†Out on the front porch, Jules is trying to check in on her “dying father.” ¬†Luann went out for a cig (now we know where the voice comes from), & kept interrupting her call to complain about being slut-shamed. ¬†I have to say, Lu was wrong for bringing up her bullshit at that moment, but if her¬†dad is really that sick then Jules should never have been there go home.

Dorinda, as a good host, should have shut this down at the dining table, but was distracted by Carole’s late arrival. ¬†This would never go on for so long in the South. ¬†Lu should leave D alone, but I do agree that Dorinda needs to shut the petty drama down…or send them all home. ¬†Jules & Dorinda are just so glad the drama has nothing to do with them for once. ¬†Ramona is happy about it too! ¬†Upstairs, all the girls are giggling in a room, like “a good old fashioned slumber party.” ¬†In walks Luann to announce that she was leaving – crickets. ¬†Oddly Ramona tried to make the peace. ¬†Down in the kitchen, Lu & Ro are laughing about the fact that Luann thought the weekend was for Dorinda’s birthday party & the cake even says it’s so. ¬†Dorinda overhears this, & majorly over reacts. ¬†That is really her M.O…tonight it was B’s too. ¬†Their blow-ups were disproportionate to the situation. ¬†Luann, being Luann, didn’t make matters any better. ¬†The old broad loves to bring up past issues over & over again. ¬†Dorinda yammered on & on about not dragging her mother into this, blah, blah, blah. ¬†They only mentioned that the cake said “Happy Birthday Dorinda.” ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Lorelai

Meanwhile, Luann can’t drop the slut thing from B. ¬†Luann’s lesson for the night should be to let it go. ¬†Bethenny needs to simmer down, & Dorinda should¬†“Tttaaakkkee a Xanax!” as Ro would yell say. ¬†xanaxRo & Lu apologize for disparaging the cake. ¬†Once again Luann can’t drop the slut thing, thus null & voiding her apology. ¬†Being slut-shamed is no excuse for bad behavior to your host. ¬†She totally quoted one of her songs. ¬†Attempting to get the Slumber Party back on track, Jules brought games, which according to Carole is very Asian of her. ¬†Jules noticed that Ramona’s dog’s shit is all over the house. ¬†Clearly this is a metaphor for the night. ¬†The house keeper brought Bethenny some herbal tea called Easy Now – HILARIOUS. ¬†My favorite moment of the night.

Back in the City, we finally meet up with Sonja. ¬†She is getting her “Trouty Snatch” tightened. ¬†We may never fully recover from witnessing this. ¬†Like we really believe that Sonja was afraid of the big wand…she’s not Sonja with a Sexy J for nothing.harvey

Back in the Berkshits, Dorinda decided to take a break to watch Law & Order, while the drama continued to unfold. ¬†This is where I switch from #TeamLuann to #TeamEveryoneElse. ¬†Carole claims that Luann is making everyone uncomfortable, which is partially true (B had a part in that too), but Carole can’t bring herself to clink her glass with Lu’s during the cheers. ¬†Her reasoning you ask? ¬†Because she doesn’t respect her. ¬†Really, REALLY? ¬†Why make an issue out of something so inconsequential as a toast? ¬†Immature. ¬†Uncomfortable. ¬†Awkward. ¬†Get glad in the same britches you got mad in. ¬†With that in mind, Carole & Jules hid in a closet to eavesdrop on Ramona & Luann; while at Ramona’s encouragement, God that’s terrifying, Luann texted Carole to apologize for calling her a pedophile (last year).¬† Fun fact: we learned that wealthy people wallpaper the inside of their closets…plan to do that immediately. ¬†During this scene, we also learned that the women are no Spelling Bee champs! ¬†Is it just me, or does it seem like Luann is stalking everyone through the house? ¬†Awkward.

Upstairs, D & B have a girl talk…Jules & Carole joined. ¬†This was the least uncomfortable moment in the entire episode; they were even speaking about going down on another woman. ¬†Downstairs in the kitchen, Ramona prompted Lu to text apologize to B. ¬†To Bethenny, it was a “pimple on the ass of the situation.” ¬†Gross analogy, but hilarious all the same. ¬†The girls decided Luann is not to be trusted. ¬†Seriously, what is with the texting? I Luann had to text her apologies because Bethenny & Carole were avoiding her like the plague. ¬†With Dorinda, Luann complains¬†that Ramona is unhappy, jealous of her, & on a mission to ruin her friendships. ¬†B overheard this & assumed it was about her…

To Be Continued…

RHONY Recap: Are You Tipsy, Girl?

Tonight’s episode began with Sonja getting her weekly facial from everyone’s favorite¬†Gossiping¬†Esthetician,¬†Satoko. ¬†Was Satoko¬†trying to say “placenta,” but it came out as “pracenta?” ¬†I don’t blame her for not using it anymore – gross. ¬†During the facial, Sonja discussed her birthday plans with an intern…is it normal to invite your facial guru to a party? ¬† Over at Carole’s, the women show up, one by one, for a psychic reading luncheon¬†with¬†Kim Russo. ¬†What was with that handshake, Dorinda? ¬†What the hell was Bethenny wearing? ¬†That turtleneck was out of control. ¬†According to Jules it’s not very Jewish to see a psychic; she would know because she’s Asian. ¬†Kim told Jules that she will be role model for women. ¬†Moving on… ¬†“I know I’m very popular with the other world,” says Dorinda. ¬†Love it. ¬†She has far too many John’s in her life. ¬†Ramona barges in (her M.O. right?), loud as can be, totally disrespectful of the readings from Psychic Kim. ¬†Kim touches on “R & R” which was Richard & Robert, Dorinda’s deceased husband & his brother. #spooky #cowinkydink

Kim mentions coins to Dorinda, & she loses her shit. ¬†Obviously, it’s sentimental to D¬†as she takes finding any loose change as a sign from Richard…it’s kind of sweet in a creepy sort of way. ¬†The psychic proceeds to inform the group that Richard thinks John is “good for now”, but he can’t provide D with the safety she needs. ¬†Surprisingly, I think Dorinda agrees. ¬†Kim moves on to Bethenny & feels like she is blocking her, but not on purpose. ¬†Um, considering B doesn’t buy into all this, I’d say it was very much on purpose. ¬†Psychic Kim kept mentioning the “death of a man” & B actually had to look up the anniversary of her father’s death. ¬†I remember my own father’s death like it happened yesterday. ¬†February 16, 2008 at 1:32pm. ¬†All our friends & family gathered to say goodbye & then they “pulled the plug.” ¬†So, I don’t buy Bethenny’s nonchalant act. ¬†Ramona chimed in to inform Kim that B & her dad had a strained relationship. ¬†‘Mona, the first rule of psychic readings is don’t give them any info to work with up front, duh. ¬†Bethenny wasn’t surprised by anything, & ended up being disappointed overall…perhaps she missed a few things while she was texting or checking email on her phone? ¬†Apparently B’s father wants tell her that she will get married again, but both Kim & Bethenny disagree (B vehemently so).

Dorinda pipes up asking if she’ll get remarried, to which the psychic says “not to John.” ¬†Ramona just can’t seem to keep her big mouth shut, & says “Thank God!” ¬†¬†Cue the awkward silence for a beat, & then Dorinda derailing the rest of the reading by giving Ramona the riot act. ¬†Okay, so everyone agrees with Ramona, but she shouldn’t have said that (as per ushe); however, Dorinda’s reaction was completely disproportionate to the situation. ¬†She’s had enough y’all. ¬†She said that John thinks Ramona is a bitch (I don’t disagree), & brought up the fact that Mario cheated on Ramona in their marital bed. ¬†I LOVED the psychic’s reaction, “It had to be said.” ¬†Carole was so embarrassed by her cast mates friends. ¬†Kim can see Ramona getting remarried…God help us all. ¬†Bethenny left early to pick up Bryn, & the only thing she liked about the party¬†was the cheese platter. ¬†Psychic Kim brought up that Ramona’s father died of a heart attack & was upset that he didn’t get to say goodbye. ¬†She cried…reminiscent of her episode in the woods. ¬†I thought Ramona’s father was abusive & they weren’t close? ¬†Dorinda butts in again to bring up John…we get it, ENOUGH!

Next up, Carole joined Jules for lunch at her apartment. ¬†Several things: 1) Jules didn’t know what an iPod was? ¬†What is she a millenial who only listens to music from a streaming source¬†or the cloud or whatever? ¬†2) She’s Asian, which she never lets us forget, ¬†& she didn’t know how to make tea? ¬†I’m questioning if she really even knew how to boil water. ¬†3) All of her homes seem to be “unfinished.” ¬†Her word, not mine. ¬†I could not live like that. ¬†Jules did put together a lovely Schmear-getzborg, which neither ate. ¬†They discussed Psychic Kim, but of course “Jews don’t want to know their fate.” ¬†Y’all, is Jules a Jewish Asian? ¬†I feel like I’ve hear that somewhere. ¬†I kid, I kid… ¬†Carole wanted to sage her apartment after the readings due to Dorinda’s thugishness & the Ramona-Coaster. ¬†Jules confessed to Carole that she has struggled with Anorexia. ¬†Carole observed that Jules has a relationship with food, & over-compensates for guests by always setting out an abundance. ¬†I call that being a good host, but I’m from the South & that’s just good manners to us. ¬†I loved when Carole advised Jules to “articulate¬†your suffering in a way that emancipates & empowers other women.” #preach ¬†Jules could so easily use her story to help others & potentially save a life. ¬†That would be the best outcome from all of her pain. ¬†It was a nice little bonding moment for them & us as the viewers.

Across town, Dorinda & John meet up for date night. ¬†Did he shine his iPhone flashlight in her face & ask the server if she was hot or not? ¬†#awkwardforall #embarrassingtoo ¬†Oh, worse the light came from his glasses…why?¬† “You’re definitely finding this stuff in Queens,” says Dorinda. ¬†I die! ¬†Once again, D asked John to call a truce between him & Ramona. ¬†They both seem to get annoyed by each of them interrupting the¬†other. ¬†They are so not a good fit. ¬†If the whole world is against John, then he is the problem, not the whole world…think about it Dorinda.Poodles

They both fight for the attention in the conversation, relationship, etc. ¬†This better not be NY’s version of Munchhausen. ¬†Dorinda is clearly exhausted from defending Juicy John to the women. ¬†The smartest thing she’s done this season was walk out of that dinner date. ¬†The next morning (i assume)¬†Sonja is getting her makeup done. ¬†Did she really just tell the makeup artist that she’s allergic to make up & proceed to clean her nose with q-tips? ¬†Girl, be respectful – use a tampon to plug that runny nose. ¬†Sonja is planning to announce her newest venture at her birthday party. ¬†Meanwhile, across a rainy NYC there is a SkinnyGirl event with a SG Food Truck. ¬†I love that B gave her team credit where credit was due. ¬†I appreciate that so much!

We finally arrive at Sonja’s birthday party. ¬†Ramona’s business partner was there taking his turn at hitting on Sonja, with a sexy J. ¬†Sorry dude, she likes them a lot little younger. Shortly after Dorinda, ¬†John arrived with his skeeviness in tact. ¬†Once again, Jules’ weight is a topic for a joke – to her face. ¬†I have to think that comments like that would be detrimental to Jules’ recovery. ¬†They all need sensitivity training…jeez, Louise! ¬†Ramona arrived & immediately started bitching about Luann’s gift for her birthday. ¬†Three things: 1) You are stealing the spotlight from Sonja’s birthday…rude ¬†2) ¬†You are now in your fifties, aren’t you too old to expect a gift? ¬†I didn’t see one for Sonja from you. ¬†3) Ramona was so rude & condescending to Sonja!

Luann arrived, in a crazy outfit but with great hair, & pulled Ramona aside. ¬†She confronted Miss Turtle Time about her jealousy concern over¬†Lu & Sonja living together. ¬†In Ramona’s confessional she sniped that “she’s not like them; she doesn’t go out until 4am & bring home every guy she meets.” ¬†She says all this while not making eye contact with the camera, so I have to wonder… ¬†Ramona may not do that, but she flirts with EVERY man she meets, regardless of his status. ¬†She does anything to get to get a man’s attention, even if she steps on her friends to do it. ¬†Love that Jules eavesdropped on their convo & relayed it to her husband in real time. ¬†Ramona, as the pot, should not be calling anyone’s kettle black…you hear what I’m screaming? ¬† In front of ‘Mona, Dorinda asks Luann if she heard about the necklace story. ¬†I loved this because it is such a Ramona move &¬†D turned the tables on her. ¬†Ramona does not understand the concept of re-gifting. ¬†Lu took it in stride. ¬†Cue to Sonja’s boast about her past life toast & announced her new venture: TipsyGirl Prosecco! ¬†I actually think “Tipsy Girl” is cute, but you know Queen B is going to be pissed – can’t wait for next week!
