Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Reunion – Part 3 of 3 – S5E22
Remember Last Week…
We had hoped the Reunion shows would bring world peace, didn’t we? Well they didn’t… And, at the risk spoiling this last part for you – World Peace is not realized at the end of tonight’s show, either – Sorry. Gracie Lou Freebush will be saddened to hear that they also didn’t achieve a “Harsher punishment for parole violators.” (Sorry, gratuitous and obscure Miss Congeniality reference)…lol
And speaking of Gracie Lou “Freebush” – Andy dives into this part of the Reunion saying that a rich life does not always mean an elegant tongue… Cue all the women saying and doing all kinds of things involving boobies, various names for their nether regions, and other words and phrases that may or may not be offensive to you. They talk about how Brandi is considered to have a dirty mouth but not necessarily because she says the “F” word and cusses a lot – But because of the vulgar and graphic things she says. They talk a little about how Lisa V gets away with saying outlandish things because of her accent. Lisa V tries to explain that the word “pussy” isn’t considered to be a bad word in England. Can we please move on?
Andy does not think that it’s an issue for Brandi to date 22 or 23-year-olds because, of course, he’s 4 years older than she and does the same thing. Brandi makes a valid point that if it’s okay for older men to date young women that it should be okay for older women to date young men (Note: I don’t think she used the word “older” in her explanation, btw…lol). Surprisingly, Brandi was not called out much about all of the “old” rhetoric she used throughout the entire season. It’s surprising that someone who is 42 would be so vocal about women aging, no? It’s wonky for Brandi to refer to someone as “menopausal” when they’re only a couple of years older than she.
Lisa R got the crown for dropping the most “F” bombs throughout the season. I wonder if there’s a fu**ing parade? Sorry… (Puts $1 into the cussin’ jar)… Lisa R said she got a lecture from her husband wherein he encouraged her to try to use the “F” word a little less often. Lisa R was very self-deprecating about the whole thing. And because she is way more of a comedian than Brandi could ever hope to be, she used Brandi’s slam from last week’s episode about her vintage hairstyle and made an impromptu, funny joke saying, “I’ll put a crown on my 20-year-old hairdo.” SlammmmMMMmm…lol. Point Rinna…lol.
Andy asks if Lisa R and Kim have resolved their issues or talked since the Finale. Kim said she got some text messages from Lisa R and gleefully starts reading them. Rut roh… This isn’t going to be good… Kim says, “After the finale I get a message… ‘Be very careful – Or I will fu** you up. You be nice to your sister. You believe her. And stop telling lies – In that order. Thanks.’ Then the next day I get, ‘You need to get wise – Brandi is not telling the truth – She is lying and I should have said that to you in that moment but I didn’t want another Amsterdam to happen – And it would have.’ And then she sends another one, ‘Your behavior and the way you treat people is not okay. You are nasty and you need to be stopped now.’” After reading the texts out loud, Kim pretends that she really got frightened.”
Well, that wasn’t Lisa R’s best moment, was it? But I do have to say that at least she politely used “thanks” after threatening Kim. Wow… Who saw that coming? I didn’t… Andy asks Lisa R what made her send the text messages. Lisa R hadn’t gotten a resolution about things at the Finale and it basically irritated her. Lisa R has issues stemming about people shushing her from way back in her childhood. Kim has done a lot of “shushing” of Lisa R this season. When Lisa starts talking about how her dad shut her down a lot – Kim smirks and laughs at Lisa R and snarkily comments to Brandi, “Look, she’s going to cry now.”
Kim tries to say that she thinks Lisa R is only crying now because people will now see that she wants to hurt her [Kim]. Kim accuses Lisa R of having a problem because she wants to hurt people. Lisa R says of her actions that she “Fu**in lost it – And that’s the truth.” Andy says, so you felt like your back was against the wall…
And because Brandi (The Twit) can’t wait to jump in… Brandi says that there have been a couple times during this very Reunion that she thought Lisa R was going to get up… The CLEAR insinuation was that Lisa R was going to somehow physically attack poor widdle Kim or Brandi… Puhleeze. Where’s your gangsta badass persona now, Brandi? The only battle Lisa R is going to initiate is a battle of wits against the both of you – And guess what – She could win that with both her lips tied behind her back.
Eileen commented that because of Kim’s provocation that we saw Lisa R go to a place where she’s never even seen herself go. Kim made a nasty comment about how she thinks that if anyone looked up Lisa R’s [police] record that they would find out that she has a history of things like this – Clearly insinuating charges like assault and battery, etc. Eileen defended Lisa R by saying that she’s been apologizing forever and that she was appalled by her own actions. Kim said that there was something not right with Lisa…
Lisa R is in tears and Kim is just smirking and laughing a lot. Andy asks Kim why is she laughing at her? Kim said it was because she didn’t believe her because she thinks she’s just embarrassed because she sent the text messages. Duh… Of COURSE she’s embarrassed, Kim – You… you… you… you…Arghhhhh…. I’m trying hard not to say what I really want to say… But come the heck on… I can only refrain for so long…
Eileen moves over the other couch to comfort Lisa R. I believe Eileen will multitask and will quickly write her name permanently on that portion of her new couch so she never ever has to go back to the couch of the Wackadoodles. Lisa R is trying to express her feelings as she’s crying… Lisa R says that she’s been shut down so much – and it just triggered something within her. Kim keeps belittling Lisa R and Lisa V tells Kim to stop it. Eileen tells Kim to get over herself. Yeah, cuz aren’t we ALL way over Kim? Lisa R said that she’s sorry she hurt Kim. Kim actually looked a little surprised at the prospect that Lisa R was being genuine in her apology. Kim gets up and goes over to Lisa R and hugs her. Eileen guards her place on the couch with her life so Kim couldn’t sit there with them, too… Although, I think it would have been a little funny to see Brandi sitting all alone on the other couch, no? Throughout Kim and Lisa R’s kumbaya hug, Brandi smirked…
They had a discussion about eating space cake in Amsterdam. Brandi said she didn’t have any because at that time she was in the middle of a lawsuit with her ex-husband – But that if she went now she would have some. For some incomprehensible reason, Brandi doesn’t know why everyone can talk about Brandi and Kim’s sobriety – but that she can’t talk about Kyle’s smoking pot… Here, let me try to explain some of the reasons to you, Brandi…
Alcohol: 1) It is legal for those of age; 2) There’s ample footage on the show evidencing that Brandi (and others) drink; 3) Teenaged and older children are certainly already aware of their Mom’s drinking.
Smoking Pot: 1) It is still illegal in most states, including California; 2) It happened off screen; 3) Teenaged and older children may not be already aware that their Moms might allegedly occasionally smoke pot; and 4) Other housewives may not be ready to launch into the whole “adults can do this and you can’t” dialogue.
I think Brandi was just flipping out about how everyone was sitting in Amsterdam pretending they didn’t know the first thing about pot – Because she knew that at least some of them had first-hand experience with it. She brought the subject up because I think she just couldn’t take it anymore. It doesn’t make it right – But I can understand it from that perspective. However, I still think that specifically outing Kyle for it was really wrong.
Kyle thinks Brandi went after her about the pot because Brandi thought that Kyle had been saying mean things about Brandi’s parenting to the other women in the group. When Kyle brought up the fact that there wasn’t a single instance of it on this season – Brandi responded by saying that there’s a lot of footage that never airs. Everyone backs up Kyle when she asks everyone sitting there if they’ve ever heard her talk about Brandi’s parenting.
Kyle further demonstrates that smoking pot is really not her thing because she’s such a control freak. She gets neurotic and can’t breathe when she smokes pot. Plus, Kyle points out that she wouldn’t show that side of herself to Brandi and not to the other women with whom she’s much better friends. Well, sorry Kyle – But that argument isn’t very strong – Many alcoholics have drinking buddies who aren’t their good friends – I’m guessing the same might be true for drugs. Brandi calls Kyle a liar. Kyle tells Brandi to shut up for a minute when Brandi goes off on how she thinks Kyle was talking about Brandi and Kim’s drinking/sobriety. Kyle said she didn’t do that. And because Brandi has not yet taken Eileen’s advice to find a Thesaurus to learn how to better express herself, Brandi has no other words but to tell Kyle to “Fu** you.” Charming.
In tonight’s edition of, “I KID YOU NOT” – Brandi actually says to Kyle – I KID YOU NOT, “Maybe you have a drug problem and you’re in denial.” Holy Deflection, Batman – Where in the HECK did that come from? Wow… While at this point, I would condescendingly pat Brandi on the head and say, “There, there – Very soon it will be alright” – But I don’t happen to have the 10 foot pole handy I would need to do it. I mean… Gosh – What do you say to that? There are just no words. Perhaps I need to borrow a Thesaurus myself…lol.
Brandi thinks it’s hypocritical that they’re all talking about space cake and popping Xanax for airplane rides (Umm… Isn’t that you, Brandi?) but that somehow everyone else seems to be worried and focused on Kim and Brandi’s sobriety or lack thereof. Brandi tries to make the point that if Kim was the one who had eaten some space cake that things would have been handled very differently for her. Andy gently points out that when someone struggles with their sobriety that it IS different. Kim stops Andy right there. She wants everyone to know that she has not struggled with her sobriety and that she has never struggled with her sobriety.
Okay, now that’s just a silly thing for someone to say who has been to rehab 3 times, no? I don’t know a single person who considers themselves as a recovering alcoholic who hasn’t also struggled to remain sober at one point or another. Plus, we have footage of Kim in Eileen’s kitchen disclosing about how she had been recently going through a lot of hard things and that she often isolates when she drinks. I guess I don’t understand the downside to acknowledging that remaining sober can be a struggle at times. There’s a reason why AA embraces the concept, “One Day at a Time.”
Kim then rehashes the whole pill thing once again…Ack! Frankly, I’m so tired of this subject. She took a pill. Lied about where she got it. Lied about not knowing what it was. Then she made all kinds of excuses about it. In this edition of the story, Kim mentioned that she was in “chronic pain.” Really, Kim? If that’s true – Since you said that you had been back and forth to the doctor’s office over the last couple of months – Why hadn’t adequate pain medication been prescribed to you?
I took a pill for a chronic pain I was having… Nor have I struggled with my sobriety for the last 3 years – If any of this was real concern I thank you – but I don’t believe that… I am sober – I have been sober for 3 years… I don’t appreciate all the conversations that have been behind my back… I don’t appreciate these rumors…
After Kim expresses that she doesn’t appreciate all the conversations being held behind her back – Kyle points out that Brandi was having a lot of conversations about it, too. Brandi tries to correct Kyle that she only had the one conversation with Lisa R. about it – But Kyle reminds Brandi of the 2 conversations she had with Jennifer about Kim. They talk about how it’s ludicrous for Kim to show up to a gathering on a reality TV show higher than a kite and then expect that no one would talk about it.
The subject drifts towards Brandi’s influence on Kim’s behavior. Of course, Kyle has seen a change in Kim once she got close to Brandi. Brandi doesn’t think her being Kim’s friend has had any influence on Kim and Kyle’s relationship. Lisa V thinks that Brandi may not be the actual cause of the issues between the sisters but that she certainly exacerbates them.
Kim says that things have occurred outside of this TV show and this group that have greatly hurt her – But she doesn’t want to talk about them at the moment. Kyle says that she has been hurt, too. Kim assures us that it had nothing to do with Brandi Glanville.
Kyle asks Kim how she thinks she felt on Halloween when Kim’s dog bit Kyle’s daughter. Kim says that Kyle decided to post pictures on Instagram and to make a public display of it. Kyle says she never said whose dog it was or that it was her sister’s dog. Kyle tries to tell her side of the story but Kim just won’t shut up even after Andy specifically asks her to. Kim then accuses Kyle of making it into a joke? Really? What kind of medication are you on, Kim – Because that comment came from left field unless there was some creative editing going on… Then Kim screams, “You’re horrible”…And again, I say, huh???? Then Kim looks at Andy and snottily says, “This is why I don’t like her.” Kyle screams, “My daughter almost lost her hand.” Kim screams, “Your daughter had a bite on her fu**in’ finger.” Kyle says that it got infected to the bone.
Kyle reminded Kim that Alexia was at Cedars-Sinai hospital for 5 days. Lisa V confirms Alexia was on a drip for 5 days. Kim starts crying and says that her daughter Whitney asked Kyle to take down the pictures and that Kyle didn’t. Kim accuses Kyle of posting the pictures just to increase the number of her Instagram followers. Kim thinks Kyle did it all just for public display…
Then Kim says that when she got into a hospital room that Alexia couldn’t fall asleep because there were 25 people around her taking pictures, etc… Kim mocked the hospital scene by pretending to be Alexia trying to get some sleep… It was pretty awful… Kyle said Alexia’s friends were there to support her…Then Kim threatens, “You want me to tell the whole story… I’ll tell the story and you won’t like it.” Kyle does not seem to know what the HECK Kim is talking about – I’m not even sure what planet Kim’s on. Kyle asks Kim if she wants to have an honest conversation… Kim wants to do it – but she says it in a really threatening way…
Normal Calibration Checkpoint: Normal dog owners likely would be horrified their dogs bit anyone under most circumstances. Normal dog owners would be concerned about the wellbeing of the young adult who was bitten. Normal dog owners would be falling over themselves apologizing profusely over and over again that it ever happened. Normal dog owners would lose sleep worrying about the ongoing health of the victim. Because it’s family – One would think the level of concern would dramatically increase, no? There was not a single breath of an apology from Kim about the incident – At all.
Okay… Now here is where there is a batcrapcrazy verbal exchange between the two sisters. In the middle of it, Lisa R makes a comment about how Kim has a “scary voice.” I know I shouldn’t be laughing right now – But when have I ever said that I always acted appropriately? The reason why I’m laughing is because it’s clear Kim doesn’t have an original thought in her head and throughout this entire exchange she just parrots back everything that Kyle says to her. It got so confusing that I asked Mr. Stars99 to listen to it, too – He listened to Kyle and I listened to Kim and it was STILL very confusing…lol. The bottom line is that they both called each other names… They both hurled insulting accusations at each other… And they both think the other is mean. It was a little surreal to watch, I must admit.
And, like she’s done 4 million times before, Kim pretends to have a big story that Kyle won’t like if she talks about it right now. Kim insinuates it’s regarding one of Kyle’s kids – It’s unclear to me if it’s about the dog bite or not – But Kyle doesn’t know what Kim’s going to say next. I mean, who does?
Kyle tells Kim that she hopes Kim isn’t about to say something that will hurt her child. Kim accuses Kyle of not giving Alexia the antibiotics for 2 days (presumably after the bite). Kim somehow twists this whole dog bite situation to be Kyle’s fault. Kim decides that she doesn’t want to talk about it any further,
Andy asks incredulously them if this is what they’ve been fighting about all this time… Lisa R clues in that Kim has once again determined what they can discuss on the show and what they can’t discuss. Kim gets to have her say and then shuts down anything further from being said about it. Kim starts crying because she said the situation hurt her whole family.
Wait… It’s Kyle’s daughter who got hurt, no? Kim said that it was very painful for her children. Again, It’s Kyle’s daughter who got hurt, no? Kyle tells Kim that Alexia had an IV for 3 weeks. Kim states how close Monty was to the dog.
Andy point blank asks Kim where Kingsley is at the moment. I respond by saying that of course she’s at home with Kristen from the Real Housewives of New York (Her daughter’s name is Kingsley…lol). Sorry… You know… Tense moments… Bad joke… Please forgive me…
Okay, and if I thought it was weird before… This whole exchange got really, really wackadoodle now… Kim says that Kingsley is with a trainer right now. Andy seems to be… Well, like a dog with a bone because he kept on asking about Kingsley. Kyle is so not saying a word but defers to Kim. Kim says that the subject of her dog is off limits just like her children. Oh baby, something is really, really offfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff….
Andy talks to Kim about how it seems like she’s equating her dog with her children. Kim says that Kingsley is like a child to her. I think most dog owners can really relate to this. Kim’s face has turned really read and she’s crying real tears.
Then, in yet another edition of “I KID YOU NOT” – Kim says of this experience with the dog bite and Kingsley, I KID YOU NOT, “This has been the most painful thing I’ve gone through.”
Normal Calibration Checkpoint: Kim, one would think having your mother or father die would be the worst thing… Or your fiancé being murdered would register somewhere on the scale of painful things… One would also think that a lifetime of battling alcohol and knowing how it adversely affected your loved ones around you would be a pretty low point, too. Or perhaps it would be going through one of your divorces… Or here’s one, how about your ex-husband, who is currently living with you – Who is DYING of cancer… I mean this is just some of the stuff I know about your life and I’m no expert. Assuming you’re telling the truth and Kingsley is indeed, at a trainer’s – Even IF you did place this as “the most painful thing I’ve gone through” – IT ISN’T EVEN FOR THE RIGHT REASON! It’s not because your niece got hurt… But it’s because it became public… Or is it?
Andy tries to comfort Kim by saying that it’s a good thing then – That Kingsley is at a trainer’s and he’s getting trained. Kim just icily stared at Andy and said the subject of the dog is off limits. Whoa baby…
Okay, I think I get it now. As a result of the dog bite incident, Kingsley may have had to go away to a dog trainer’s, perhaps? There is no mention that Kim pays the trainer to bring Kingsley back around the house to see Monty or her kids when they’re over. She didn’t mention that she visited Kingsley recently, either. Kim seems overly concerned about her kids and doesn’t consider what Alexia went through at all for some reason. I hope something didn’t happen at the “trainers” that would have adversely affected Kingsley – It’s not his fault he had an owner who couldn’t and wouldn’t handle him properly. I think Kim blames Kyle for all of this because the incident took Kingsley away from her home, her children, and her dying ex-husband… Perhaps permanently.
Kyle wonders how this all got turned around onto her. Kim once again says there’s more to the story than Kyle even knows because Kim’s never told the story. Lisa V astutely points out that once again there is a lot of insinuation going on… Yep… All smoke and no barbecue.
Kim, pretending to be Captain Transparent, says that there’s nothing that she won’t tell the others off camera. Andy says to Kim, “So you’ll just imply it on camera.” I think Andy’s really cranky at Kim because of course it does him no good to have these conversations occur off camera. People have been fired for this, no?
Kim blathers on about what a great relationship she has with Kathy – That she talks to her 3-4 times a day and that they go out to dinner, etc. Who in the heck cares? This is just another obvious jab at Kyle. Recognizing the comment for what it is, Kyle tells Kim that she loves her as a sister – But as a person she doesn’t like her very much. Kim agrees.
There was a funny fake out scene wherein Lisa tries to convince the staffers that “pussy” isn’t a bad word in England. One of the staffers (he may be English) seems to agree with her but I’m laughing too hard to care. This whole thing is very hilarious to me.
Andy brings up how Kyle should be vindicated because of the footage that Kim has now seen that shows that Kyle was telling the truth all along. But Kim doesn’t give Kyle even that.
As the discussion wound down, people were suggesting what the sisters could do at this point since neither of them really knows where to go from here. Lisa V suggests that they put a lid on their disagreements. This will enable Kyle to go to Brooke’s big wedding and be in the pictures, etc. And also so that Kyle can be there for Kim as she walks through these (presumably) last few months with Monty. I wonder when Kim will ever be there for Kyle. Brandi says she washes her hands of the situation because she thinks it’s batcrapcrazy (or something like that…lol). Kyle says that if Kim doesn’t want her at the wedding that she won’t go.
Andy asks the women where things stand at this point of time…
Kyle says she’s sad.
Kim says she doesn’t know.
Brandi says that more than anything – That she doesn’t want to break up a family – (Yeah, or you would be at risk to be called a “Home wrecker, no? Seriously, this is hilarious to me because Brandi has been saying all along that the friction between the sisters isn’t her fault – But now she seems to be taking a twisted kind of credit for it? My head is spinning…) Brandi tells the sisters that she wants them to be happy and that family is forever. She says that no matter what anyone else thinks that she wants Kyle to be at the wedding.
Eileen’s not sure but that this experience has been epic and it’s going to take a while to process it. Andy asks her if she would do it again and Eileen says that it’s a big question…(I start chanting, DO IT… DO IT… DO IT…)
Lisa R it’s been interesting and that she’s never done anything like this before. She only wants the best for everyone – And she remembers to include Yolanda. Wow… It seems like it’s been years since we’ve seen her, right?
Lisa V says that it’s all very complicated but the rest of them will somehow work it all out – But they don’t have as much at stake as the sisters do… Of course, Brandi rolled her eyes.
Well… That’s it for this season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills… I laffed… I cried… But mostly I just cringed. Seriously, I really appreciate the time you took to read my snarky rantings… It was fun to laugh at the foolishness, wasn’t it? For those interested in the Real Housewives of New York – I’ll see you again next week… But until then, Happy Trails!
The ladies spent most of the time in the Hamptons. Bethenny arrived, eventually. You see, what’s happened is that Dr. Amador morphed into Matt Foley and Bethenny has been living in a van down by the river. It’s sad, really. All that money and she can’t find anyplace to live except for the backseat of a (chauffeur driven) car.
LuAnn is selling everything from her old house – light fixtures, floor tiles, toilet paper holders, the works, because the buyer is tearing the place down. She has some new digs in Sag Harbor, which Sonja finds “cozy” – Sonja’s code word for one step above government housing. Dorinda and Ramona stopped by and Ramona starts to talk with LuAnn about the memories she has of the house. She also pulled LuAnn aside to apologize for the things she’s said in the past. She says that she now understand how it is to walk in someone else’s shoes, especially when it comes to cheating husbands. LuAnn accepted the apology, cautiously. It sounded sincere to me.
Ramona is going to have Dorinda and Sonja stay with her at her house and gives Dorinda the room normally reserved for Sonja. Sonja isn’t happy about the arrangements and says that she’s been relegated to Mario’s doghouse. She then proceeds to talk about all of her houses, in Aspen and France and New York, some of which aren’t hers anymore and some of which may be turned over to satisfy a couple of lawsuits. It’s classic Sonja in all of her delusional grandeur. Dorinda pretty accurately described her as Mary Poppins meets Zsa Zsa Gabor.
Back at LuAnn’s, Carole has met LuAnn’s new chef, Adam, and is immediately smitten. She’s even willing to pretend to know how to cook just to stay in the kitchen with him. Kristen arrives. I think that’s all she did – arrived. If she said or did anything else, it wasn’t very memorable.
Ramona, Dorinda and Sonja go out for lunch and are joined by Ramona’s sister, Tanya. Sonja starts asking Dorinda about her dry cleaner boyfriend, but it seemed like an opportunity for Sonja to bring up Mario – over and over. Ramona makes it clear that she doesn’t want to talk about him, but it wasn’t clear to Sonja. She just kept prattling on and on about Mario and how he must be like John the dry cleaner because one is Italian and one is Armenian. That makes sense, right? Spaniards, Norwegians, Estonians, Greeks – same difference. They’re all European.
LuAnn is playing hostess for a dinner party at her new house for all of the ladies. Lady Morgan shows up with some bottles of Corona in her purse. They weren’t a housewarming gift, they were her beverage of choice. It must be a high society thing. Then Bethenny arrives and the entire dynamic changed. Bethenny said that she was concerned about the reception she’d receive and she had good reason to be. Ramona straightened her back as only Ramona can and was ready to go after every word Bethenny said. Bethenny asked Ramona about her dating life and Ramona said that she was keeping the company of men. Now, I don’t know about you, but to me that sounds the a courtesan. Bethenny said as much and commented that Ramona must be doing men, banging men, f**king men, sucking men. In her talking head, Carole said that it was like watching a battle of the alpha dogs.
Heather didn’t cut Bethenny much slack, either. She mentioned that LuAnn had a copy of Bethenny’s first book and that she understood that LuAnn helped Bethenny invent Skinnygirl Margaritas. She laughingly said that Bethenny owed LuAnn a car or a Rolex. Heather said that if she were to ever sell Yummy Tummy for ginormous dollars that she’d buy the friend who helped her name the company a car.
It only got worse for Bethenny when she invited the ladies to her house in the Hamptons to brunch in the morning. Ramona started peeing on house guests’ legs to mark her territory and began to lecture Bethenny on guest protocol. According to Ramona, one can’t ask someone else’s guests to do anything or eat anything or say anything without first asking permission from their hostess. She then sought a ruling on the matter from the highest authority by asking the Countess for her opinion. LuAnn mumbled something which really didn’t help things much. Yes. Maybe. No.
Bethenny then went outside with LuAnn to find out if Ramona had stolen one of Monty’s pills and was high. Oh, sorry, wrong Housewives. While they were outside, Ramona tells the others that she sent them and email inviting them for brunch. No one seemed to have gotten the email and Ramona says that her computer has been putting her emails in the trash. Dontcha just hate when that happens? Well, it doesn’t matter, because Ramona insists she sent it and they should have accepted her invitation whether they got it or not. She called dibs and that’s that.
Ramona then takes her story of the disappearing emails outside to explain the situation to Bethenny. Bethenny is having none of it, though, and tells Ramona that she doesn’t want to hang out with her. Ramona begins to channel Kelly Bensimon and, while speaking in the softest of voices, tells Bethenny to take a breath and calm down. Somewhere, in Australia, Alex McCord is smiling and nodding.
We don’t know where the ladies are going for brunch. We’ll find out next week. Stars99 will fill you in on the details then. If you missed her recap of episode one, you can find it here – https://lynnfam.com/2015/04/08/real-housewives-of-new-york-city-the-b-is-back/ I promise you, it’s worth your while.
I don’t know why Sonja’s missing from the picture. If I were LuAnn, I’d be checking the kitchen – or Noel’s cottage. An ankle monitor might be a good idea.
