RHOP: SALTY BEHAVIOR

I realize I took a hiatus, but I’m back and excited to talk about RHOP with you guys!

We start off getting ready for Monique’s Rainbow Party. I learned this from the show – a Rainbow Baby is when you get pregnant/have a baby after you miscarry. I absolutely love everything about this idea.

We’re all around Potomac – Gizelle is taking care of her daughter, Angel, who is sick. Robyn is with her kids – they’re playing sports. (Sorry, I wasn’t paying attention to what sport.) Neither of them are going to be able to make Monique’s party.

This party is super extra, and I’m loving it.

The guests are all arriving. Shirley, Monique’s Mother-in-Law, is there. Monique fills us in that this is the first time she’s seen Shirley in two years, and would like an apology from her.

Monique gives a speech about the meaning behind having the Rainbow Party, and she tells us all that there is “Healing in sharing.”

They release doves for all of the Rainbow Babies in the world, which is so sweet. Shirley then announces that she would like to say something. Monique looks nervous AF but Shirley actually apologizes and says she wants to move forward. It’s a really nice moment all around.

Ashley and Michael are talking about the fact that Ashley miscarried – Michael basically says that he would like to have a Rainbow Party for their future baby when/if Ashley gets pregnant. He gets super emotional while talking about it, and has to walk away from the table.

Monique thanks everyone for coming, and asks if anyone would like to share their own personal story. Ashley does, and she shares her struggle about the miscarriage and her fears about not being able to have a baby.

Karen is emotional – she’s watching Chris with his father, and is missing her own father. She tells us in her confessional that after hearing Ashley’s speech and seeing what she’s been through, she does see a change in her.

Ashley pulls Karen aside and asks her if they can chat. Karen agrees. Ashley starts off by saying that she knows that they have a “rocky past” and I’m LOLing when Karen corrects her and says, “Very rocky.” Ashley asks Karen if she would like to do something with her one on one. Karen doesn’t immediately agree but is open to the idea. She thinks that loss may be able to bring them together.

We’re at Gizelle’s, and her mom is over. I’m dying at their dynamic. Gizelle’s mom is super sassy and kind of shady, but Gizelle tells us, “My mom always shades me with love.” 😂 Gizelle fills her mom in on how her therapy is going, and she also tells her it’s given her the courage to pursue something – buying a house for her and her girls. She says that it needs a lot of work, but she doesn’t mind taking on a project. Her mom doesn’t think it’s a good idea. Gizelle says something along the lines of, “Robyn’s doing it and is fine!” And the producers are so shady switching over to Robyn’s investment property that looks horrible.

Despite setbacks, Robyn is invested in flipping this house. It’s just taken her longer than she realized it would. I almost feel like Robyn really wants to prove to Juan that she can do this. She says she’s excited to see where their relationship goes once it’s finished, and this is weird to me. I understand wanting to make your partner/significant other proud, but I don’t think this should have any bearing on their relationship. Maybe I’m missing something?

Over at Monique’s, Monique and Chris are chatting with Shirley. Monique tells her that she appreciates her apology. She tells us in her confessional that she gave her “a public apology for publicly embarrassing me.” Lmfao. She tells Shirley she can be shady sometimes and Shirley’s like, “That’s just how I am.” Chris is such a good guy – he intervenes, and all three of them agree to move forward. I honestly am loving Monique, she just calls it like she sees it.

Ashley and Michael are meeting with an acupuncturist. Ashley is willing to try anything to get pregnant. The acupuncturist asks Michael his age, and suggests getting his sperm checked – and this idea is so ludicrous to Michael. Like hello, you’re almost 60 years old! Michael should’ve done that already. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Gizelle and Candiace meet up to have lunch at Candiace’s husband Chris’s restaurant. Gizelle said she really enjoyed Candiace while they were in NOLA & she looks at her like a “little sister.”

They start talking about the Rainbow Party, and Candiace immediately goes in on Ashley. She doesn’t buy anything Ashley said. Candiace imitates her, and I’m not here for it. I actually think it’s really fucked up. I’m confused to why Candiace even apologized to Ashley while they were away – she obviously didn’t mean it.

Gizelle changes the subject, and they start talking about their trip. Candiace says, “Monique had some funny things to say about Katie.” She says that Monique said something about Katie looking like Amistad , and Gizelle is immediately offended and is like, “She’s saying Katie looked like a slave?” I’m so annoyed because we see the flashback of Monique literally saying Katie used to dress prim & proper and now is a free spirit. Why are we twisting her words!? She clearly had no ill intent when she was talking about Katie, so I’m not sure where Candiace is going with this. Candiace tells us in her confessional that she “should’ve just shut the fuck up” and I completely agree.

Ashley and Karen do meet up – they go to a Himalayan Salt Cave. (I am dying to go to one!!!) Karen at first is super skeptical – she thinks that this is all bullshit. However, when the woman who is running the session tells her she’s a psychic medium and that her dad is in the room, Karen completely breaks down.

He tells Karen, “You’ve got this, baby girl.” And Karen says that she knows, she just really misses him and her mom. She tells us that it’s healing for her to feel his presence in the room with her.

Ashley shares her fears with Karen – she is full of self doubt and overwhelming anxiety. What if she’s not meant to be a mom? She talks about how Michael is almost 60, and she’s scared she’ll end up alone.

Honestly this scene between Ashley and Karen was very heartwarming. Karen comforts Ashley – she tells her Ray was 50 when Raven was born, and this baby could make Michael feel younger. Ashley is grateful and tells Karen that she needed to hear that.

We’re at the end, and that mid season trailer honestly has me fucked up! I’m still laughing thinking of Gizelle yelling “Security!” which I assume she’s mocking Karen by saying.

Thoughts!?

Until next week…..

25 THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT ME – PART 2

I stopped at Number 13 in Part 1 of my blog post, so I’m back. 🤗

14. I’ve always been an avid reader

I’ve always loved to read. I think I was the only one in middle school who would be excited to have reading assignments. Looking back, I think James Patterson is the author who truly gave me a love for a good murder mystery. I remember reading Kiss the Girls and being so hooked. I loved all of the Alex Cross novels, too. I still love Patterson and murder mysteries and psychological thrillers are still my favorite. I like other genres, too. I’ll read pretty much anything. Some of my other favorite books are: The Great Gatsby, Valley of the Dolls, The Women’s Murder Club Series, Jane Eyre, Me Before You, Game of Thrones, Rebecca, The Last Mrs. Parrish…I could go on for a while.

15. Traveling is so fun – even if it’s just weekend trips.

Vegas 2017

Punta Cana 2016

Green Bay, WI 2017

Newport, RI 2017

NYC 2018

I love to travel, but I don’t get to nearly as much as I would like. I feel like every time I check a new place off of my travel bucket list, I add a new one on. I’ve been to Vegas twice (the second time around was much more enjoyable!), Canada, Punta Cana, Florida, California, NYC, Wisconsin….I know I already told you guys Nashville was my favorite. NYC is a lot. I think Boston is crazy, but NYC makes Boston look quiet. Vegas is a lot too – but not so crazy, depending on when you go. I loved Newport when I went, it’s so pretty and they have cute shops. I’d love to go back to Canada – I went for my senior trip in HS & I was 18 and it’s legal to drink in Montreal at 18, so that weekend is blurry AF. I also love North Conway, me & Saul go every year for my birthday. Maine is a favorite, too. Always a fun weekend trip. I’m super excited to go to The Bahamas, I’ve always wanted to go there. Other places on my bucket list: Bora Bora, Greece (Santorini to be exact), Italy, Norway, Ireland, South Carolina, LA, etc etc etc.

16. I prefer Quality over Quantity.

Me & Melissa, my cousin (sister 😋)

My brother, James, and my bff Jenalynn ❤️

My Mama is so cute

Uncle Saully & Baby Ellie (my heart 😍)

My Dad & My Brother at Foxwoods

Me, Jen & Talia

Me & Jessi

I literally cannot find a normal picture of me & Jack to save my life, so here we go 😂

I don’t have a ton of friends, but the friends I do have are the absolute best. Also, shout out to my work mom/BFF Kirty – we have no pictures!! But I love you so much. 😭❤️ I could go on and on about how much I love my family & my friends, but it would be repetitive. They know I love and appreciate them so much!

17. I’m a proud mental health advocate.

As someone who has suffered from anxiety and depression for half of her life, I am very much pro-therapy. I’ve been in and out of therapy (currently in) and it really is so helpful. Sometimes you get off track and you can’t get back on you by yourself. It’s okay to need help and to get it. I hate that there is still such a stigma surrounding mental health and mental illness. If you’re struggling, there is no shame in admitting it. There are people who act like admitting you need help or taking medication makes you weak – I completely disagree, I think it makes you strong. I have zero tolerance for ignorance when it comes to mental health/mental health shaming. I take medication, I talk to someone, and I struggle every single day yet I’m still here, and I’ll continue to fight this battle. Please remember that your mental illness doesn’t define you. And that although it may not feel like it in the moment, things will get better. Storms don’t last forever. Also, I’m adding this last one because it’s something I just realized myself – do not get frustrated/give up on therapy if you don’t see immediate results. Or if you have a few good weeks, and then you have a couple of down days – that’s okay. Working on yourself isn’t a quick fix. It takes hard work and it takes time. Don’t give up, keep going. You’ve got this.

18. Britney Spears is my spirit animal.

I think everyone knows this 😂 but it would feel weird to write facts about myself and not mention my love for Britney. I’ve loved Brit ever since I met her in 1999 at the Kiss 108 concert. She was the absolute sweetest and actually came back to take a picture with me because I didn’t get to be in the original photo. I saw her again in 8th grade – I got tickets to her Dream Within a Dream tour for my 13th birthday. I saw her in 2017 at her Piece of Me show in Vegas – it was literally so amazing, I can’t even put the feeling into words. (I cried when she came on stage, lmao.) I just love Brit. If I was a millionaire, I’d open a Britney Spears themed bar – Britney inspired cocktails and apps, all Britney music, Britney decor – 😍. How cool would that be!?

19. My favorite movies are chick flicks.

If you asked me what my favorite movie genre was, I’d tell you horror/thriller. But the more I think about that, the more I realize that’s not true. Yes, I enjoy horrors/thrillers, but literally all of my favorite movies are chick flicks. Mean Girls, Clueless, 13 Going on 30, Teen Witch, The Craft, Jawbreaker, Twilight – just to name a few. Some thrillers that I like – Final Destination, I Know What You Did Last Summer, What Lies Beneath, Scream – you know, the classics.

20. I love picking out baby names.

For someone who’s not pregnant and doesn’t plan on becoming pregnant anytime soon, I think about my future child/children’s names often. Me & Saul have talked about it, and we can’t agree on a boys name. We have agreed on some girls names, though. I won’t tell my favorite favorite names, but here are some I like a lot: Chance, Cruz, Grayson, Jace, Ariana, Maya, Everly & Lena, to name a few.

21. I would nap every single day if I could.

Napping is seriously my favorite. I prefer naps over actual sleeping at night. When I go to bed at night, I worry about all the shit I have to do the following day. When I nap, I feel so chill & carefree. At one point in life, in my early 20’s, I worked 8am-12pm. I was living in a luxury apartment at the time with my mom, who was basically living at her boyfriends, so I felt like I had my own place. The complex had a pool, so every day in the Summer I would get out of work at noon, go home (I lived 5 minutes from my job at this point) and lay poolside for two hours-ish, and then I’d nap from 3pm-7pm. Lmao I’m aware of how fucking ridiculous that is, but I miss those carefree days. Now I barely get a chance to nap on the weekend. (But you know I do when I can.)

22. I am the Queen of Birthdays.

2018 💓

20th Birthday with Melly – we were babies!

2013 – “Sorry, we forgot the birthday candles.” Lmao.

My 24th Birthday I think? @ Venetian Moon w/the girls 💜

I can’t believe I can’t find any birthday pictures with Saul, but they’re all uploaded on my laptop because they’re not on the this phone, and I’m not going on the laptop right now. (Sorry Saully!) Anyway, I’m obsessed with my birthday. I have never worked on my birthday and I never plan to. When I was younger I used to go wild on my birthdays – parties, bar hopping in Boston, Foxwoods trips – but as I’ve gotten older I’m much more low key. For the past few years Saul & I have gone to North Conway for my birthday and I absolutely love it. One year we stayed at Adventure Suites which was super cool. They have themed rooms – we stayed in the Love Shack which was so cute. I feel like North Conway on my birthday is a tradition now. Horsefeathers for Bloody Mary’s, Penny Lane Boutique & a trip to my favorite independent bookstore. Oh, and Vito Marcello’s for dinner. 🤗❤️

23. I believe in astrology.

I’ve always been a huge believer in astrology. I’m a Sagittarius, a fire sign, and I feel like I’ve always identified as one. Recently I’ve been digging deeper into astrology, and my astrological chart as a whole, and I’m fascinated. I’ve learned that I’m a Capricorn Moon, which was truly surprising to me. Capricorn is an Earth Sign, and I don’t know much about Earth Signs. Your moon sign signifies your feelings and inner thoughts, so I’m interested in learning more about it. I’ve also learned that despite being a fire sign, Earth is dominating my chart. That was surprising to me as well. I check my horoscope everyday (I use the Daily Horoscope app) and I also like the weekly horoscopes on The Cut. I feel like they usually resonate with me.

24. I love Podcasts.

Watch What Crappens w/Ronnie & Ben

My Favorite Murder w/Karen & Georgia

Two Judgey Girls w/Mary from the Bay & Courtney from LA

I loooove a good podcast, but my Top 3 are the ones I posted above. Watch What Crappens & Two Judgey Girls are Bravo related, and My Favorite Murder is, obviously, about murder. I love these duo’s – I listen while I’m in traffic during my morning/afternoon commute and I feel like I’m just hanging with my friends. Some other podcasts I’m into: Weekly Dose of B.S. (w/Brandi & Steph from RHOD), Martinis & Murder, Dr. Death, Dirty John, Casefile, Straight up w/Stassi (from VPR) and Everything Iconic w/Danny Pellegrino. If you’re into podcasts, check them out! And no, this is not an ad, lmao.

25. I’ve seen every episode of Law & Order SVU.

Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration – what I should have said is I’ve seen every episode of SVU with Stabler in it. I was in mourning for a little while after Elliot left the show, so I took an SVU break for a short time. Benson & Stabler are the most iconic duo on television of all time. I love that they’re actually close in real life, too. (Mariska is the god mother of one Chris’s children.) I love them. ❤️

And I’m done! Leave me a comment with some facts about yourself 🤗

RHOBH: DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HURT ME?

Another week, more drama here in Beverly Hills. I didn’t blog last weeks episode, but I did watch it & I took notes. Life just got too crazy. I’m sure everyone’s already caught up, but if not, we learn that LVP didn’t show up to Camille’s Bridal Shower, and then she claimed she wasn’t invited, which was not true – Kyle has the receipts to prove it. We also learn that Camille literally compares herself to Brett Kavanaugh and has zero compassion for women, while Lois (Lisa Rinna’s badass 90 year old mother) was almost murdered by the Trailside Killer. It was intense.

This week, we start out with Kyle & Teddi, and their daughters, Portia & Slate. They’re going to Petite & Pretty (I have no idea what this is?) to do a photo shoot? Kyle and Teddi are chatting while Portia and Slate are getting their makeup done. Oh, I forgot to mention, Camille asked Kyle to be a bridesmaid last episode, and she said yes. Kyle gets a text from Camille, and it’s a picture of the bridesmaid dress – a pretty, navy, capped sleeve dress. Kyle’s not happy – “A cap sleeve is not my friend.” (I hear that, Kyle. 😂) They also talk about how Teddi has an RV, and the girls plan on going camping soon.

Over at Rinna’s, she’s FaceTiming with Erika, who’s on tour. She fills her in on LVP no showing to Camille’s Shower (EJ couldn’t make it because of the tour) and Erika replies, “The saga continues.”

Denise & Aaron are at the gym. (I love these two.) Denise fills Aaron in on how she plans on having lunch with LVP. She thinks a lot of miscommunication is going on, and she’s unsure if she should get involved or just stay the fuck out of it.

Dorit is at Kyle’s, and they’re talking about how they are planning on going to see Boy George at The Greek the following night. Kyle asks Dorit if she invited Lisa – she didn’t. Dorit feels like she should give Lisa space, since she clearly doesn’t want to talk to her right now. I mean, I get it. I wouldn’t have invited her either.

Meanwhile, LVP and Denise are having lunch together at Villa Blanca. Denise tells Lisa that the girls really do care about her, and Lisa says that her feelings are really hurt.

They cut back over to Kyle and Dorit – Kyle says that Denise was going to have lunch with LVP. Dorit thinks maybe Denise would be a good mediator, since she went through a lot of stuff with Charlie Sheen. “Did you just compare Lisa Vanderpump to Charlie Sheen?” Kyle asks. Then she adds,”They are both Virgos.”

Denise is trying to get Lisa to see her POV – she brings up what she went through when she was divorcing Charlie, and how she could’ve chosen to retreat but didn’t. LVP doesn’t want to hear it. “I can’t explain why I’ve chosen to retreat,” LVP tells Denise. Denise thinks it’s weird – if LVP didn’t do these things she’s being accused of, wouldn’t she want to repair the relationships and defend herself?

Kyle tells Dorit that friends call each other out. She says that Lisa always makes herself the victim and bolts whenever she hears something she doesn’t like.

Denise is still trying with LVP – she tells her, “Those women still love you.” LVP isn’t buying it. Denise extends an olive branch and invites LVP on the RV trip the girls are going on, but she declines.

It’s the night of The Boy George concert. This is the first time Camille has seen the ladies since the Kavanaugh argument. Camille feels as though Lisa Rinna was “extremely unfair” to her at dinner, but life is too short to hold a grudge.

Dorit learns that PK has talked to Ken, and they have plans to get lunch. PK doesn’t want to get into it all at the concert, so they drop it.

Teddi tells the girls she did reach out to LVP – she basically said that she knows that they’re not going to see eye to eye, but she wants them to just be able to move on and she wishes her well. She didn’t get a reply.

They briefly talk about LVP saying she wasn’t invited to Camille’s shower – and Camille pretending that she didn’t know Kyle did in fact invite her. Camille owns it, but Kyle is annoyed because she feels like Camille plays both sides of the fence.

The Ladies go backstage, and they get to meet Billy Idol, which Rinna is super excited about.

The girls (minus Denise – she had a family night at home with the girls and Aaron) all seem to be getting along and having fun at the concert. “Everybody’s getting along so well,” Camille observes. Lisa Rinna asks, “When’s the shoe gonna drop Camille?” Foreshadowing at its finest.

The concert is over, and everyone is hanging out backstage. Boy George is talking about how he called out someone in the audience for being on their phone, and Kyle says something along the lines of “I would be too scared to do that, people could kill you”, or something like that. PK chimes in, “You can’t even get on with your best friend, Kyle, so you could have issues.” Like wait, what?

Kyle is livid, and I honestly don’t blame her. PK’s comment is so random and completely caught me off guard. He seems totally annoyed with Kyle, which is odd. What would he be mad at Kyle about?

“PK, you’re in the same boat as me,” Kyle snaps back.

“Its a joke,” PK replies, with absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever.

Kyle says it’s not funny, and PK says it’s “British Humor” which honestly infuriates me.

“Kenny’s speaking to me,” PK also adds, which just sounds like he’s trying to irk Kyle.

“I’ve been defending you,” Kyle says. It sounds like she wants to add “because of the dog drama” but doesn’t. “I didn’t put you in this position, so when you say that, it’s an insult.” I totally agree with that.

Dorit is trying to defend PK but also have Kyle’s back, which isn’t working.

“You’re in the same boat as me,” Kyle repeats, annoyed. “I hate to burst your fucking bubble.”

PK isn’t backing down. “I’m not quite in the same boat as you.”

Lisa Rinna is finally like, “Let’s go.”

Kyle’s pissed, and Dorit is mad at PK. “I don’t care if it’s a joke, if you hurt someone’s feelings you say sorry.” PK literally doesn’t care at all, and refuses to talk about it any further.

The ladies all agree PK was a dick.

“Good luck trying to have sex with your wife tonight,” Kyle says as she stomps away. (Really Kyle? Good one. 🙄)

The ladies are now outside, getting ready to leave and hanging out outside the bus that brought them to the concert. Rinna thinks PK is trying to stir the pot. “One shit stirrer can call out another shit stirrer.” Lmao.

Kyle’s furious – but I can’t lie, I’m literally shocked when she says, “It’s all based on you and your wife giving up the fucking dog.”

Dorit comes out, and she tells Kyle that PK is comfortable with her, and that’s why he said what he said. (That makes no sense.)

Teddi chimes in, and Dorit literally loses her shit. She snaps at her that she just wants to have a conversation with Kyle for 30 seconds.

“The way that she just spoke to me is so inappropriate,” Teddi tells Kyle. Kyle tells her not to get upset, because it’s clear that she’s about to.

Camille, who never gets along with Dorit, is suddenly on her side, and tells us in a confessional that Teddi butts in too much and is a “know it all”. Really Camille? WTF?

Kyle tells Dorit that her fight with LVP is because of her and PK, which Dorit doesn’t want to hear. She says it’s about Kyle’s own personal experiences with LVP. “You’re wrong, Dorit,” Kyle says. “If I didn’t know the two of you, I would’ve defended her blindly like she wants me too.”

I get what Kyle is saying in a sense – she has stuck up for Dorit, which did cause a rift in her friendship with LVP. However, to blame it all on Dorit is kind of bullshit. You keep saying you need to be honest and tell the truth, so that’s what you’re doing, right Kyle? So it’s not really fair to blame Dorit for the fight.

We end the episode with Kyle saying, “Fuck you, PK. And that’s British humor.”

Thoughts on this week? I’m having a hard time putting my own thoughts into words, because I feel like I see everyone’s side. Something about Kyle is rubbing me the wrong way right now though. I can’t put my finger on it, but if I do, I’ll let you guys know.

Until next week…..

RHONY: SHARK BAIT

img_7818

We start off with Dale & Tinsley – they’re going to Sobel, so Tinsley can get Botox for her TMJ. Tinsley tells us about the “Strut Your Mutt” Event, which is a fashion show for dogs that she’s hosting.  It raises awareness for animal rescue/adoption, and I think it’s a super cute idea.  (Also, I really want Botox.  Just throwing that out there, LOL.)

Sonja & Ramona are going for a walk, and they’re just chatting about everything. Ramona fills Sonja in on her blind date, and I’m dying.  “Well he speaks three languages and is very worldly,” Ramona tells Sonja.  “So he’s not good looking?” Sonja asks.  LMAO.  Ramona tells Sonja she wasn’t interested, and that she’ll admit she’s “into hot sex”.  Sonja calls Ramona the “Date Monster” – these ladies literally kill me.  They talk about Dorinda and Luann’s lunch, and they’re both happy that they seem like they’re in a good place.  They both also feel as though Dorin is in a very good place.  We learn that they’re all going to the Berkshires (@ Dorinda’s), and the Berkshire Flashbacks are giving me life.

img_7809

Over at Bethenny’s, she’s packing – she’s going to visit the guy she’s been seeing/dating in Boston. She also has a grief counselor coming over.  She doesn’t want to transfer her grief from Dennis to her new relationship.

img_7814

Honestly, this scene with Bethenny and the Grief Counselor broke my heart. Anyone who is questioning the timeline between the new guy and Dennis, I want to tell them to just shut the fuck up.  I’m pretty sure this therapy session literally explains it all.  We learn that a week before Dennis passed,  Bethenny had wanted out of the relationship.  She said that their relationship wasn’t healthy.  Yes, she loved him, but it wasn’t working.  Dennis told Bethenny he didn’t want to be in another relationship if he couldn’t be with her.  She’s carrying around guilt because of this.  When they talk about the fact that Dennis overdosed – how it’s so sudden, and how it is different than if someone dies of cancer, because it’s unexpected; one minute they’re here, and the next minute they’re gone – it truly hit very close to home for me.  I have the chills watching this – I’m sending Bethenny all of the love and prayers.  I pray for happiness for her.  I liked when the counselor told her “there is no road map for grief”, because he is absolutely right.  Regardless if Bethenny and Dennis were together or not at the time of his passing, at the end of the day, he was her person.  And my heart literally broke for her.

img_7808

img_7816

It’s the day of the Strut Your Mutt event. Dorinda is first to arrive – we learn that she’s going to walk down the runway with Matilda, a cute little dog who’s 10 and has yet to be adopted.  We also learn that Dorinda’s dog, Lucy, recently passed.  She was fifteen.  When Dorinda tells us about the dream she had – she said it was so vivid and Richard was sitting on the couch, and she saw Lucy’s face, and felt like “She’s home.” (I’m crying right now TBH.)

img_7820

All of the girls are arriving. (Anyone notice Ramona totally pretend not to notice Dale? LMAO. )  The girls are all chatting, and Dorinda tell Lu she’s so happy that she’s coming to the Berkshires.  “I’m coming for my house upstate,” Lu responds haughtily.  Jesus Luann, can you not be a bitch for like 30 seconds?  Why is she so bitter?  Despite the fact that Dorinda and Barbara had an argument, Dorinda did still extend an invite to her.  Lu tells us that Barbara filled her in on her fight with Dorinda, and this is so annoying to watch.  Barbara, you’re such a shit stirrer.  Dorinda tells the girls she got a naked chef (mostly for Sonja, LMAO) and then I’m literally dead when Lu is like, “Can we get a yoga instructor?”  Dorinda agrees that she can, and I’m just like….WTF?

The dogs are all ready to take the runway, and I’m dying when Tinsley’s assistant, or whoever that girl is who is helping out with the fashion show turns to Tinsley and says, “Your mom wanted me to tell you you need lipgloss.” LMAO Dale, back off.

LMAO.png

Ramona thinks she’s ready to walk the runway this time around – and I’m crying laughing at the 2009 Runway Ramona flashback. OMG! Her bug eyes are everything.

img_7806

The Fashion Show goes very well, and it’s really cute. Sonja walks down with her dog, Marley; Dorinda walks down with Matilda; Ramona walks with her dog, Coco; and Dale walks down with Tinsley’s dog, Bambi.

img_7813

All of the girls are going out on a boat for the day except for Dorinda; she’s going to the Berkshires early so she can decorate. (Dorinda’s so cute!)  I think the owner of the boat was a friend of Ramona’s, and they’re just going out for the day.  Lu is being awful.  She freaks out over a glass of wine being in front of her.  (I mean, I get it, she’s a recovering alcoholic.  I just feel like she’s exaggerating everything right now.)  The girls basically interrogate Tinsley and her relationship with Scott – I think they mean well, but can we just leave Tinsley alone?  I did like that Bethenny really talked Tinsley up – I would never guess in a million years that Tinsley has body issues.  She’s so gorgeous, and she has such a great body! That was shocking to me.  But I thought it was super sweet of Bethenny to boost her confidence like that.

 

We’re in the Berkshires! I’ve never met Dorinda’s sister, Melinda, before this episode. (We do see a flashback of when Melinda was Santa one year, LOL.)  I knew that Dorinda had a home in Great Barrington, MA, but I had no idea she grew up there!  Great Barrington is at least a few hours from me, but we’re in the same state! I was fascinated by this LMAO.

Dorinda went all out decorating, and I love it. (I’m a huge Halloween fan myself, it’s my favorite time of the year.)  Tinsley, Ramona and Sonja are the first to arrive.  They’re all freaking out over the decorations, and Ramona points to skeleton like creature crying in the fetal position and says, “It looks like Bethenny crying!” LMFAO, Ramona. I can’t.

They’re all discussing the room situation inside the house, and Ramona picks up a sign that says “Good Vibes Only” and is literally putting it in everyone’s face and telling them that’s the theme for the weekend. (Ramona is so much work LMAO.) Dorinda promised Bethenny Hannah’s room; apparently that’s the best room.  Dorinda is giving that room to Bethenny because she has been going through a hard time and she wants her to be comfortable.  Dorinda plans on giving Lu the Moroccan Room, but Tinsley doesn’t want the Fish Room, so she’s like, “Fine, you can have the Moroccan Room and Lu can have the Fish Room.” (HONESTLY WHY DOES THIS MATTER!?)

The girls head out to The Wheatleigh Hotel for Dinner, and Lu meets them there. I die a little bit again when Lu asks Dorinda if she can get her a masseuse.  Luann, this is NOT a hotel.  Like what?  Dorinda agrees; she’s truly going above and beyond to accommodate Lu and make her happy.  The girls ask Dorinda what’s going on with Barbara, and she says that they’re fine.   Dorinda gets up to go to the bathroom, and when she’s gone, the room situation comes up once more.  “If I’m in the Fish Room I’m going to freak out,” Luann tells the group, to which Ramona and Sonja completely lose their shit and think this is the funniest thing ever. Dorinda comes back, and Lu immediately is like, “Why am I in the Fish Room?” Dorinda’s like, “I didn’t know you didn’t like the Fish Room.”  Luann goes off, and she’s pissed that Bethenny gets Hannah’s room – she thinks that Dorinda should’ve specifically given that room to her.  Tinsley speaks up, and is like, “She was going to give you the Moroccan Room because I didn’t want the Fish Room!” But this doesn’t placate Lu, she still thinks Dorinda should’ve given her the best room.

I am literally DEAD. I cannot get over the entitlement Lu feels like she has.  Luann, you sound like a spoiled little bitch.  Are you kidding me?  Honestly, Dorinda truly handled herself perfectly, because I would’ve lost my shit and told Lu to just leave.  The entire situation is beyond rude.  I couldn’t even imagine ever acting that way while being invited to stay at a friends home.  No class, no manners!

What’d you guys think? Do you think Luann should have the best room, or just be grateful that she has a room at all?

Until next week…..
