“Can you do a favor for me, a big favor? I went out with Tom last night. You know, the one that looks a bit like Johnny Depp? And the girls, they know I brought someone here,” she says on the call, which Bravo subtitles. “He can’t say that he was here last night with me. I don’t want the girls to know he was here with me.”
Teen Mom- Series Finale
Hi everyone, this is the Series finale of the original Teen Mom. I am willing to write about Teen Mom 2 if anyone watches it. Thank you NMD and LC for keeping the blog up and running, not to mention the other contributors and those on FB, a special thanks to all Lynn’s faithful readers who I consider to be friends.
Amber says because things with Gary have been tense, she decided to date other people. She seems to have a knack for riff raff but this guy is actually decent looking and has his own place to live in. I have a feeling that he is either never seen the show and doesn’t know how crazy she is or he has seen the show and wants a piece of the action.
Amber starts to tell him about her history of being teen mom and about her daughter. She also explains that she is going to give Gary custody to keep CPS at bay. The guy seems a little to eager to meet her which makes me question his motives.
Amber and Gary decided to wait until after the family court date to have a family party for Leah. But because he is angry that he and Amber won’t be getting back together, he decides to throw one without her. I guess he is taking a page out of the Maci Book(out) on how to use your child as collateral. Amber is lying in bed again (only this time she has company- I don’t know what happened because I wasn’t here but I am guessing he ‘took a tour of the house’) when she gets a call from Gary who texts her pictures of the birthday party he is setting up along with a snarky message. She calls Gary and asks him what is up with that since they had planned to throw a party together. He then starts questioning her about the guy she is with and the nature of their relationship. She refuses to answer and he hangs up. Amber tries to call Gary; I know this because they showed his phone with a call coming through from someone listed as “Plain Old Amber”. I guess he has some other Amber’s in his back pocket and needs to make the distinction, but he doesn’t answer. Amber tells her new guy that Gary is shutting her out because she doesn’t want to be with him anymore. She is now questioning her decision about giving Gary custody.
Gary’s friend comes over and he tells him that he feels bad about the conversation he had with her. He thinks he went too far and said things that he shouldn’t. He says that he still cares about her and that if anything happened to her, it would devastate him. I think he is realizing that when you are dealing with someone who is bi-polar, drug addicted and suicidal that you shouldn’t say things that are likely to push them over the edge. His friend says he is proud of Gary for realizing that he crossed a line and that it’s not fair or right to go there. They talk about the court date the day and how it will be difficult.
Amber is sulking on the couch and calls Gary, he reminds her that she has court at 2:30 the next day; she says she knows but she wants to see Leah. He says it’s not a good day and she breaks down crying. He says he is ‘not dealing with his’ and she starts to yell that he is the one who is keeping her from her daughter and calls him a bastard. He calls her a whore, she says she is not. He calls her a ‘slut puppy’; she says she is not and that she was devoted to him. He mentions the new guy she is dating, she says it’s not about him, it’s about Leah. Gary says that he is going to get custody but Amber says that now she is not going to give it up. I wonder if Amber now realizes what her mom was trying to tell her before. It gets even more heated before Amber collapses on the bed in a pile of tears.
Amber is lying in bed again (with that guys she is dating) when she speaks to Gary. He tries to assure her that he didn’t mean the things she said and that she should give him custody, citing again that it will get CPS off their back. They go to court and put it motion. Later that day, Amber tells her friend that her family has given her a hard time about the decision but that she feels it was for the best.
Gary drops Leah off at Amber and says his mother will pick her up before he closes the door. Amber gives her some balloon’s coloring books. She also makes cupcakes with her daughter.
Maci is driving and thinks is a good idea to make a phone call without a hands free device. She calls Bentley to wish him a happy birthday; I don’t know why she waited until she got behind the wheel to make this call but it was selfish and idiotic. Bentley is having a good time opening presents with is dad and paternal family. They get him a guitar, I am curious to see if it stays at their house or goes to Maci’s, along with some playdoh- that goes well with hardwood floors and some finger-paint.
Later, Maci is in bed with Kyle reminiscing about the day Bentley was born and relieving every moment of it, noting how the baby came out of her hoo-hoo. I am not surprise she got pregnant at such a young age; clearly she wasn’t paying attention in all of her biology classes when they were discussing human antimony. She also goes on to say how she was the rock star mom and how Ryan never wanted to be around. My guess is it might have had something to do with her being there. She also says how she should be the one to get Bentley for every birthday because he wouldn’t be there if it wasn’t for her, as if Ryan had NOTHING to do with it. (See, I told you she wasn’t paying attention). This wakes Kyle up from his coma and he makes some sort of snort (see even he knows how babies are made) but she tells him to shut his mouth and yammers on.
Bentley is still with his dad while Maci sees her college advisor; she tells her if she stays on the right track she can get an A in the class which is new for Maci, since previously she never even got a credit. Maci is talking to a friend of hers about her difficulties dealing with Ryan. Her friend suggests that maybe it’s that Ryan still has a thing for her and is wanting what he can’t have, so he is keeping her at a distance. Maci says she doesn’t know what the problem is but there is one. I can tell you what is it Maci. She makes the mistake that I feel a lot of single mothers (especially young ones) do with their children’s fathers; they have anger and resentment with their exes over the failed relationship and use the child as a means to try and control them. This is exactly why Ryan will be a chump if he doesn’t get a formalized custody agreement from the courts.
Maci picks up Bentley from Ryan’s and says that it was uncomfortable. Ryan is meeting with a lawyer because he wants apply for joint custody of Bentley. He also addresses his concern about Maci living with someone she isn’t married to with Bentley being in the home. His lawyer asks him if he has a copy of the birth certificate, which he doesn’t but says he will ask Maci for it, although he isn’t sure if she will give it to him. It’s beyond me why he wouldn’t have got a copy sooner. He should have his own file for his son in case of an emergency but he’s not too bright, so I am not surprised.
Maci has had Bentley for a few days and it’s Ryan’s turn to have him, he her for the birth certificate. She asks him why but he won’t tell her. She says she doesn’t have it with her and that it’s at her mom’s house. She tells him that he can go to a health office and pick on up himself. He doesn’t like that answer, it seems like he thinks that is an inconvenience which doesn’t suggest he is ready for a custody fight. Maci tells Kyle what happened and wonders what Ryan is up to. She seems confident that nothing will change as far as custody and living arrangements if push comes to shove.
Ryan is telling his parents about the proposed custody agreement and how they should alternate weeks. His mom asks what his lawyers concerns were and he mentions about how Kyle and Maci are living together. His girlfriend Dalis doesn’t think that Ryan should go down that road because there could also come a time there they decided to live together. Ryan’s dad asks why would they do that and gets the reply ‘because we love each other’. His dad reiterates that even if there is a modified custody agreement that it is still important to try to work with each other and co-parent.
Maci goes to see her mom and tells her that Ryan is asking for a birth certificate. Her mom asks why and Maci says she doesn’t really know. Her mom says that she thinks it’s for reasons we all know, that he obviously wants something in writing in regards to custody so that he is not at the mercy of Maci. She asks Maci if she feels like Ryan has gotten better at parenting over time, she says that she does but is angry that Ryan gets to be the ‘fun dad’ and when it comes to the hard or unpleasant stuff he leaves it for his mom to do. Her mom in around about way tells her that she has to look forward and not back for the best interest of Bentley instead of hanging on to her resentments.
Tyler and Caitlyn are getting read to start college in a few weeks. April is still in recovery and Butch is still in jail. She asks the couple if they will watch Nic for the weekend for her. The reasons that aren’t clear, something about ‘having her own time’; they agree and it makes me nervous, I think she is going to party and end up using. They talk about what her plans are in regards to Butch, she says she thinks she should divorce him but doesn’t sound really committed in that answer. Tyler is unsure about what to do; he thinks it would probably be best to cut his dad out of his life. I can’t even imagine what an agonizing decision that must be for those who are dealing with a family member battling addiction. They talk about how Butch told Tyler that his love for cocaine is deeper than his love for his own son; I can only hope that is the addiction talking and not his heart and soul.
Tyler, Caitlyn and her little brother Nic go to their trailer. Tyler becomes upset over a mess and begins to swear but Caitlyn says she will get it and asks him to watch his language. Later on that evening when he is playing with her brother, he is becoming agitated with the dog, especially when the dog poops on the rug. He takes the dog and shows him the mess then puts him outside. Seeing this, I am glad they decided to choose adoption, knowing how much kids poop everywhere, especially when they are potty training. It’s a frustrating task and process for the best of us. Cailtynn’s little brother starts to cry, Caitlynn’s voiceover says how Tyler’s tempter has been getting worse lately and it’s starting to bother her. My guess is that he is angry with his father but because Butch is in jail, he is projecting his anger on to those around him. The next day, Tyler snaps at the dog again and the subject of his tempter comes up. He and Caitlyn both note how it’s getting worse. They acknowledge how it’s good that Carly isn’t there to witness it and how it would cause conflict in their relationship if she was. Tyler says he wants to see a councilor.
Tyler tells his councilor about how his tempter has been flaring up lately. She asks him the source of it and he explains that on the surface it’s over small and petty stuff but he doesn’t know the root of it. His therapist gets him to dig a little deeper and he acknowledges his anger at his dad and how his dad has never been in his life. He said that had a lot to do with why he choose adoption for Carly, because he had no idea how to be a father and was afraid to fail. Tyler ponders about if he should write his dad a letter cutting him out of his life. But he is afraid that his dad will then die alone which will make him feel guilty.
Tyler is reading Caitlyn a letter he wrote to his father. It is a sad conclusion for any child to come to about their parent; that they are a destructive force in their life and they need to close that door. Tyler talks about to Caitlyn about how his relationship with Butch, pushed him towards adoption. Caitlyn said that because she knew he felt so strongly about, she was afraid if she changed her mind that Tyler would have left her. I think this must have stuck a cord with them both, since they kind of went into a defensive mode where he said that ultimately it was her choice; she agreed but said that he was lucky she took his feelings into consideration when she made it and how a lot of other girls wouldn’t have done the same thing. They wonder if it was the right choice or not but ultimately come to the conclusion that it was
Farrah is talking a bartending class (well, I guess it’s technically part of a culinary management program) .Clearly the science involved with adding a garnish to a drink or salting the rim is something that can only be done in Fla and without the distraction of being a parent. I suspect that Farrah was probably using around this time using distance to hide her tracks from her family that would likely intervene. At least she had the sense to send Sophia to Deborah’s (although I suspect she is on meds or using alcohol) thankfully Michael seems normal. Farrah calls her mom and speaks to Sophia for a bit. Her mom tells her that she is going to start potty training the child. Farrah says she has been spending time with her neighbor (I think they put out a casting call for people to film with her and they are dropping like flies). Farrah is racing in her conversation and it’s like she is trying to get her whole back story out in 30 seconds covering everything from being a teen mom, to her daughters father dying, how she feels alone, She then users her hat to cover her face and starts to cry.
Farrah is making a cake in her apartment with a classmate which is weird because the girl asked her what program she was in. Farrah tries to make a canolli. I don’t know what book she is reading but she cooked it like a pancake, then put the cream on top, then tried to roll it like a fajita. Is she on drugs again? Farrah is checking out some art classes for Sophia, she talks about price and how important it is for them to prompt her child on if she needs to use the bathroom. At home, she is checking her grades on line and talks about how Sophia is doing and how it’s gotten easier for her to deal with the fact that the baby is with her mom. Farrah flies back to her mom’s house and is met at the airport by Sophia and her mom. For whatever reason, her mom is holding a carseat in hands, which doesn’t make sense because it doesn’t look like they took an airport limo home.
Farrah is having lunch with her sister and Sophia when her daughter tells her that she is a bad person. Farrah says she is not, so Sophia says that then she (referring to herself) and her mom reassures her she is not. Having kids around this age myself, I know that this is just one of those things kids say, but it makes me uncomfortable watching it. Farrah talks about her sister getting engaged for a few seconds before she puts the focus back her. She mentions how when she was pregnant, how Derek proposed to her but she turned him down which in part leaf to her breaking up with him. She thinks that had she accepted that Derek would still be alive today and begins to cry. Sophia calls her a cry baby. She says now how she feels like she will accept any proposal since you never know how many chances you will get but I suspect that what she means is, she will get a proposal, even if she has to beat it out of you. Run Forrest, run.
Farrah and Sophia are getting ready to leave her mom’s house. She says she was able to get a lot accomplished in the time she Sophia was gone
Love Broker – “Ben: Nothing is Perfect in Love”
Looks like this is the last episode of Love Broker. It came in with a whimper and went out with a whimper. Bravo never really gave this series a chance. There wasn’t much pre-promotion for it; they showed one episode, pulled it from the lineup, and then brought it back as a summer fill-in. The final blow came when they moved it from a prime-time slot to 7 p.m. Too bad. It’s a much classier show than Millionaire Matchmaker ever was or ever will be. Lori and Jenn seem to legitimately want to help people find their soulmates, while Patti Stanger seems to be happy raking in the dough from the millionaires and insulting everyone while doing it.
Lori meets with Stephanie to get feedback about what’s going on with one of her clients, Jesse. They had a very good first date and had a second date in Central Park (but no kiss). They exchanged telephone numbers and he texted her for another date. Lori tells Stephanie the texting thing is not OK. For their third date, they went to a restaurant and had great conversation (still no kiss). The next day, Jesse breaks it off with Stephanie in a TEXT! He told her he didn’t kiss her because he didn’t want to lead her on and that he was not ready for a relationship. What? Then why is he paying Lori to find him a woman for a relationship?
Lori is very hurt and disappointed by Jesse’s actions. He was immature and childish and she tells Stephanie that Jesse will definitely hear from her.
Lori hurries to her next appointment with Ben, 28. He’s a copywriter from Connecticut. He’s ready for a relationship and he asks her how she met her husband. His most recent girlfriend broke up with him in a TEXT! What is going on here with the texting? Nothing is a substitution for a real one-on-one conversation. Ben was in love in college, but the girl didn’t know what she wanted. He was serious and she wasn’t. He wants someone who has goals and stands up for what she believes in. He likes someone who’s creative and would like to go on runs in the park with him (he thinks that’s sexy). Looks wise, nice eyes, nice smile, nice butt and blonde. He’s never cheated on anyone before and wants someone with integrity. Lori loves sensitive guys. She has to find someone who doesn’t have a hard exterior.
She takes Ben to the park to see what type he likes. He keeps seeing women who aren’t his type and feels bad for saying it. Lori tells him to be honest. He finally sees a very cute blond woman. Long blond hair and nice butt are his definite likes. Lori calls Ben a dream client. She tells him she will get back to him after she and her staff find who they think is the perfect date for him. Lori tells her staff how much she loves Ben and they discuss who might be good for him. They look at Lindsey and she seems to fit the bill. They also talk about Sofia and Kelsey. Lori will meet all three to see which one she thinks will be best for Ben.
Lori has Jesse come to her office and she’s ready to let him have it. She lets Jesse tell her his side of it and he tells her he stupidly texted Stephanie to break it off. Lori tells him that’s the ultimate sign of immaturity. Lori asks Jesse what he meant when he told Stephanie he wasn’t ready for a relationship and tells him it makes Lori and her company look bad because they are there to help their clients find a real relationship. Jesse tells Lori he’s ready for a relationship, but not with Stephanie. He tells Lori he knows he screwed up. Lori is trying to pinpoint what it was about Stephanie he didn’t like. He thought she looked great and had a great personality. Jesse said Stephanie didn’t have the wow factor. Jesse finally admits he would like someone a little more fit and toned. Lori thinks they could have saved a lot of time if he had just admitted that. Jesse learned a lot from that discussion.
Lori meets with Lindsey as a potential date for Ben. She is bubbly, outgoing and a little quirky. Trust is a huge issue for Lindsey and Lori thinks that good because Ben is looking for someone with integrity. Lindsey sees herself being married five years down the road and wants to start working towards that. Plus she has a nice butt and she’s blond. Lori thinks she’s great.
Lori then meets with Kelsey as a potential for Ben. She’s 23 and she’s in social media. She tells Lori she’s in a career she loves and she’s goal-oriented. Kelsey seems very confident. She ended her past relationships she had in college because she wanted to focus on herself. She likes someone thoughtful and caring and the guy must eat more than she does. Lori thinks this decision is getting harder and harder for her.
The third girl she meets for Ben is Sofia. She’s Swedish and has been a skier all her life, but she’s had some bad injuries from it. She loves running in the park (so does Ben). She’s currently a full time student and working towards an interior design degree. She tells Lori her former boyfriend broke up with her in an e-mail. She admits she can be kind of a control freak. Lori likes that she admits that. Poor Lori doesn’t know how she’s going to pick one of the three women she’s talked to. I personally like Lindsey.
Lori gets a call from her client Justin who had a great first date with Paula. He waited like Lori told him to do and left a message with Paula that she never returned. He then texted her twice to see he even had the right number. Paula puts him off for a couple of weeks because she tells him she’s busy. Justin felt he was getting the brush off and Lori asks him why he kept pursuing Paula through texts. Lori tells him there’s nothing less attractive then a needy guy. She tells him not to appear over-eager. Lori tells him at the end of the day he will find someone more responsive and he’s willing to try again.
Ben doesn’t have a game plan for his blind date. He’s just going to talk to her. Lori calls Ben and tells him he’s very lucky to be going on a date with this woman. Lori advises him not to forget to ask for a second date on the first date. It’s a first blind date for both. And the girl Lori chose for Ben is . . . Sofia, the Swedish former skier. Ben thinks she’s very attractive. Sofia tells Ben about herself. I think Ben is a little in awe of Sofia and he’s not being very talkative.
They both live near each other and find out they both like running. She tells him about her professional skiing past and her bad crash that ended her career. Sofia does most of the talking and Ben seems a little intimidated. Sofia is a morning person and Ben is not. Sofia tells Ben sleep is overrated. Ben tells Sofia he’s a zombie and she says maybe he can change and he says he probably will not. Sofia is a neat freak and Ben is a slob. Sofia starts organizing things on the table and Ben teases her about it. They talk about the whether they would have a family in the city or not. They go to the cabana downstairs and sit on a couch together. Ben tells her she’s very cute. While Sofia is talking about traveling, Ben leans over and they start kissing. Sofia thinks he’s a great kisser. They agree to hang out together more that night.
Lori meets with Ben to find out about the date. He thinks the date went really well. He tells Lori she is his type physically and he thinks she’s a good kisser. He got her number and asked her out again. Lori asks Ben if he’s interested in Sofia’s feedback and he thinks that’s a negative thing. Lori says it’s mostly positive but there’s a little tweaking needed. Ben tells Lori he’s not changing anything. Lori tells him Sofia felt Ben wasn’t confident in the beginning so he needs to control the conversation better. Lori thinks there is definitely great potential for them. I’m not too sure about that Lori, and I hope to find out how this one ends.
Lori and Jenn have a Summer Client Appreciation event for their male clients to catch up on their lives. Some have found love and some haven’t yet, but Lori is determined that everyone deserves love and it’s out there for them.
Real Housewives of New York Cast Blogs
LuAnn de Lesseps
What may have looked like infidelity on last night’s episode was in reality, a ride home with a friend and a tour of the house after an evening of fun on vacation eight months ago. Do you think I would bring a man back to a houseful of housewives (and cameras) if I were planning on having an affair?
She makes a good point but maybe she figured no one would suspect she would have a night of “fun” with a Frenchman because the camera and women were there. Or she needed another storyline.
My big mistake was trying to avoid the speculation and assumptions by telling a white lie. The problem with telling a white lie is that once you say it, you have to stick to your story, that’s why I made the call when I heard that Tomas was coming for dinner that night. Never tell a fib because it can snowball out of control. LESSON LEARNED.
Just like Bill Clinton. Stick to your lie.
As I write this, Jacques and I are on vacation and we couldn’t be more united and happy!
If Jacques believes you didn’t cheat then that’s fine with me but I defend my right to gossip about it!
As you all well know, I love dancing! Heather and I suddenly bonded on the dance floor. Once Heather, Carole, and I got on top of the tables to dance, it was sealed. Heather and I reached an unspoken understanding with each other.
Leave it to Ramona to make a moment on the dance floor into something deeper than it is. Not exactly a “feeling fist” moment (Urban dictionary: The fist used to express deep or extreme emotion during a song, in which the singer extends a fisted hand and brings it back in toward their body with intensity of emotion).
How many times did LuAnn say Tomas looks like Johnny Depp? Was it just me or was she obsessing a bit over the way he looked? I really don’t know why LuAnn would lie about having Tomas over to the home. And to say Italian people, not French?!
We were all surprised that Aviva was coming with Reid and that he would be staying in the villa. Aviva had always told us he would have business and stay at another location with a business associate.
I guess we’ll have to tune in next week to see what the ruckus was about.
I was glad Aviva was coming, but I wish I knew under what circumstances before I committed. I really can’t take that much time off away from my family, and if this was no longer a girls’ trip, I might have done things differently.
Didn’t we see this scene before? What’s the big deal with a man on the trip? We don’t know Reid very well and he may turn out to be just as effeminate as Simon. He just might have a pair of red leather pants in his closet.
I find this trip appalling for so many reasons: Women abusing themselves with alcohol and god knows what else. Women behaving like mean teenagers thinking only of themselves and bullying others whenever they get the chance.
I can feel Aviva’s seething hatred emanating from my laptop screen. I’m leaning back for fear of getting sprayed with saliva as she spews her vitriol.
I would have hoped that women in their 40s and 50s had evolved to a place of kindness, compassion, and decency, having had children and some life experience.
Their young eggs prevent them from doing that.
Next, Carole insisted that Reid and I stay in the house (we could have just as easily stayed in a hotel). I was so excited to go on the trip and fight my fear of small planes. With Reid at my side, I was still petrified but it felt doable.
I guess we’re supposed to feel bad that she made such a sacrifice to go to a beautiful island for a weekend getaway to film a Bravo reality show.
What is most disturbing is, if some of the ladies felt so strongly about Reid not being there, why didn’t anyone call me???
They were probably too inebriated to make the phone call.
The real issue is what were the ladies so worried about? Wasn’t the dynamic of a female trip altered from the start given Russ’ presence and random local guys, invited by some of the ladies, coming and going?
Rather uncomfortable to run around nude, drink and bring home young Frenchman to “talk”, when someone’s husband is hanging around. When you have your midlife crisis, you’ll understand.
How could those women possibly be so selfish and mean to debate as to WHO was going to ask my husband to leave this house?.
Apparently what worked in Season one with Simon and Alex, producers felt will work again in Season Five.
And let’s not forget that Ramona KNEW that Reid was coming before I ever left New York and, believe me, he was not interested in being around this group of pent up cougars. We had discussed it! The house was HUGE with separate entrances/exits for each room So what was the problem? Why such insensitivity towards me and my family?
So was Reid supposed to stay in another room of the house so Aviva could hang with these cougars? That doesn’t seem fair.
The ganging up on LuAnn to shame and intimidate was terrible.
Well, it was going to happen someday. Luann shames and intimidates them with her height and passive-aggressiveness constantly.
This trip was trashtastic filled with immature, selfish women.
By Aviva’s reaction, you would think Ramonja was planning a terrorist plot to bomb St. Bart’s. The only thing they’d bomb was the toilet.
What didn’t Ramona and her sidekick want Reid to see? Their selfish, partying, hedonistic, binge-drinking behavior? Or perhaps they wanted to hide sleeping together naked and spooning?
Reid would see it anyway on his tv screen along with the rest of us. Thank goodness for pixelization. It seems Ramonja’s site gag was not appreciated by the Dreschers.
The beginning of Heather’s blog just describes what we saw on the episode. I don’t know why she bothered. The only interesting part was:
Let me tell you this much as I know it to be true, Carole and I leave the group well before the clock strikes 12 and we go back to the house and off to our beds. Later that night, I don’t remember what time, Lu comes a knocking on my door to try to get me up for a nightcap. She is with someone but they are not sneaking around. They are being very loud. I go back to bed. The next morning, Carole and I are taking in the sun and some Vitamin D by the pool and she asks me about the noise from the night before. I could have said, “I don’t know,” but that would be lying to Carole and so the whisper fest ensues between us about what happened.
For some reason, I can picture myself leaning in while she’s whispering these sentences.
I adore Jacques and LuAnn both and I love them together. I don’t believe anything but partying happened last night because I know how Lu feels about Jacques, but she is making it worse by weaving up this complicated, cockamamie story. She is certainly coming off very suspicious to the other ladies and no one believes her.
So what kind of “partying” do you think they did, Heather? Inquiring minds want to know.
I am concerned that soon the questions will turned to me, so I am just backing out of any group discussions with Ramona and Sonja about this whole scenario while we are preparing for who knows what this evening.
I get it. Heather wants to be the good girl and not get her hands dirty. Leave it to Ramonja to do it.
The girls invited everyone they knew and saw at Le Ti to our house for a party and so we are expecting a potentially large group — but to our surprise and Luann’s chagrin it is just Kat, (LuAnn’s good friend), and Tomas who actually show up! Ugh! LuAnn is digging a hole for herself and I wish she would clue me in on her thinking because I would have made every attempt to stop her!
A rumor-mongering control freak to be sure.
Although we as RHONY are surrounded by a media bubble that can teach us to think the opposite, being liked is not always the most important and the truth is that even our “reality” cannot always be Photoshopped or clicked away with a mouse — its “tale” has to be confronted…
Blah, blah, blah…I’m sure there is a lesson learned in all of this but she’s mistaking this show for an afterschool special.
Meanwhile, Sonja has decided that no matter what went down the evening before, tonight it is her turn with Tomas aka Johnny and she is making her moves! I guess Carole (from Le Ti) and Tomas have broken up!?
Can’t these women let us see the episode before they spoil it for us?
Carole’s blog is always perfection. My comments would mar it. It’s better to read it in its entirety and I definitely recommend reading it so here’s the link:
This is a girls’ trip! I’m here to stir the drink! What you don’t see is from first flight to the end of the night we were all constantly being served! Welcome mimosas and wine with lunch in first class on the plane, arrival champagne at the villa. Rosé was not flowing in this Villa, it was gushing from a SPIGOT! In all my travel I’ve never seen this.
With as much as you drink, it’s a wonder you remembered having a good time.
It would be like one wife coming along with a group of husbands to Vegas and expecting the wife to be comfortable!
That sound like a vacation you’d be very comfortable on.
I’m not in St. Barths to be on my best guarded behavior in front of Carole’s boyfriend, I’m here to have a blast and blow off some steam. I’ve been working really hard on Sonja Home Innovative Living, booking Sonja in The City parties, maintaining my charity work, combating the hurricane damage at my home, managing my assets, and most importantly being a mom. All this when not shooting RHONY!
Let’s not forget, bossing around interns is exhausting work.
I have been friends with Carole Gruson, owner of the fabulous Le Ti St. Barth, for decades. I had no idea her and Tomas were broken up until Tomas told me at the house the next night at our cocktail party. He’s French, always flirtatious (especially with the clients), which is what we go there for!
As long as Tomas says they are broken up, I guess it’s socially acceptable for you to “flirt” with him.
There is nothing wrong with bringing people (or a group of Italians) back to the house! Now I know Ramona doesn’t sleep and she watches TV with the butler and snacks (and still has a phenomenal body), but what were Heather and Carole doing up at the main house?! The bungalow was hundreds of yards away from the house, so what were they doing? Creeping around in the bushes?! Peering through (or running into) glass doors?
She brings up a good point. Very intriguing.

Ramona is already spinning / spoiling / deflecting – as a seasoned housewife should. She’s let slip to WetPaint that Aviva was verbally abusive.
According to the article, Ramona says: “I’ve been getting flack because people have been saying I’m just walking away from Heather,” Ramona said. “You will see in the episode when we come back from vacation where I sit down and have lunch with Aviva and sit down and stay and take this verbal abuse from her. The producers even asked me why did I stay so long and take that from her, but the truth is I stayed is because they always were telling me I leave and walk out when there’s conflict, so I just stayed and got verbally beaten up.”
The question is, what did Ramona do to make Aviva scream at her. It’s clear that whatever it is the two ladies haven’t made up yet – Aviva’s blog and twitter feed make that abundantly clear. The real question is – how are the rating? We’ll have to wait until
