If ever Countess LuAnn wanted you to forget that in her (real? former?) life she was a commoner, it probably all came back to you tonight. Nurse Lu is examining Kristen and lets her know that she does not need stitches nor does she need fillers to fix her lip. Bravo hates violence, so it opens with the scene from the lake lest you forget that Ramona hit Kristen with a glass. In a TH, Kristen now regrets having defended Ramona against Aviva’s comment from last season, stating that she was “white trash.” Ramona didn’t stick around to find out if Kristen was ok or to apologize. She and Sonya are in the car discussing how Kristen was at fault. That discussion continues back at Heather’s garage-house.

RHONY

Kristen and Carole laugh about Ramona’s “obsession?” with her blow dry. While they are laughing, Sonja steams, commenting on the childhood verbal abuse Ramona suffered, while watching her mother suffer physical abuse – both victims of Ramona’s father and how no one understands. Ramona is fearful that she is becoming her father. Sonja’s emotional breakdown over Ramona comparing herself to her dad feels over-the-top and disproportionate, as does Ramona’s response when Heather tries to smooth things over before dinner. (Remember when Kristen compared “Ramonja” to “crazy aunts”? Well, these two are doing a “crazy aunts in the attic” impression not to be believed.) Ramona tells Heather about her own facial injury, one she caused when firing a shotgun that recoiled. The only way those two events are related is that Ramona is at the center; she has hurt herself and another person.

If Heather was hoping for peace she was wrong. Ramona wants Kristen to know that she reacted “instinctually” to what Kristen did (throwing the water at her – which was juvenile and stupid, but not harmful) and that she’s sorry. Kristen chalks it up to a non- apology with Ramona wanting to know who Kristen thinks she is to throw water at her. It gets loud, and Ramona is the champion of loud. You can never win with her by raising your voice. In a TH Kristen asks if Ramona is the “Wicked Witch of the Hamptons.” Ramona tells Kristen that she behaved like her father who was the last person she threw something at 30 years ago.

RHONY

Carole noted in an earlier conversation with Kristen that Ramona’s anger is 0 to 60. As far as I’m concerned Ramona has lived a privileged life with enough resources to have gotten help so that she doesn’t aggress out against others. Last week Ramona tweeted a message that seemed to express shame and remorse. This week’s episode painted a different picture.

Ramona is screaming “Who are you to get me wet?” and Kristen is trying to explain that she is the one who has a split lip, telling her to calm down. Heather re-lives her own conflict with Ramona – we see a flashback of Ramona accusing Heather of having a phony smile. Ramona equates being upset over getting wet to Kristen being upset over a split lip.

RHONY

The bottom line is this: Ramona feels that she’s apologized. Other than Sonja, no one else does. Almost 20 minutes are wasted on this crazy bullshit and I want Bravo to give me that time back. Somebody better BRING IT the rest of this season or the next. As dinner continues, Heather surprises the ladies with a white jumpsuit clad Elvis impersonator, who lightens the mood at dinner. Kristen goes gah-gah and runs off with “Elvis” – no, we haven’t forgotten Brandi spilling the tea on the Vegas Elvis Impersonator incident. Ramona takes the opportunity, in a TH, to knock Kristen’s obsession with “overweight Elvis” and asks if it’s the best the Berkshires has to offer. I’m thinking there is probably an abundance of manners in the Berkshires, enough to spare, if needed… just throwing that out there.

Kristen and Elvis

The next morning the women are having breakfast as Ramona calls her friend, Adam, and asks him to fly in to pick her up. This is the kind of boss move that makes me wish Ramona wasn’t weighed down by the rest of her behavior. I don’t know that I could score a ride to the grocery store without serious effort. Ramona lies when Carole stops in, claiming she’s not packing, only reorganizing her things. At breakfast, Heather thinks the tension has melted. Ramona (who thinks Kristen is trying to be a martyr) feels that the tension can be cut with a knife. It doesn’t help that Sonja wants to remind everyone that Kristen ruined Sonja’s hair as they are all getting ready for a hike – where Heather extolls the virtues of nature while showing the women what the property was like before they cleared it. Sweet sweet irony.

Woodland Ramotional

Walking through the woods, Ramona tells Carole how the area reminds her of where she grew up and how awful things were – she “freaks out”. She believes her father moved them onto a 70 acre property so the neighbors wouldn’t hear the screaming. She shows Carole how she would play in the woods and imagine her own (safe?) home. She says that she has to leave and begins crying. Carole is not sympathetic. Ramona talks to Heather to let her know that it is best she leaves – we already know that Ramona is waiting on a pick up. Heather is sympathetic. Carole calls Ramona out (in a TH) about her “act”. Kristen is not sympathetic which causes a huge outcry from Sonja who is angry that Kristen can’t empathize with Ramona’s past and that she won’t take responsibility for “provoking” Ramona. (I can’t wait to see how @Andy deals with this issue after asking ATL’s Kenya if she provoked Porsha’s violent attack). Heather says that using “provoked” is the wrong adjective. In a TH Countess Lu snarks that provoke is a verb, not an adjective. Sonja feels that Kristen intentionally went after Ramona knowing what her hot buttons were and suspects that it may have been for attention.

Adam to the Rescue

Ramona feels ‘free” when her friend arrives. I feel free watching her leave.

The interstitial scene is of the women taking a swim near a waterfall (illegally, and foolishly, I might add since there are “No Swimming” signs posted. It still looks like fun).

Back at the house, as the women prepare for a lake party, Sonja realizes that Ramona left without saying good bye and is bummed, but not for long. The pontoon boat captain just turned 20 years old and Sonja can’t help herself. I think she’s scaring the kid with promises of an amazing night – asking if she can stay with him though he earlier mention staying at his parents’ home. As the other women are swimming Sonja stays onboard, while the rightfully frightened 20 year old is trying to get her to go into the lake. Carole and Kristen begin discussing the lip and Ramona. SERIOUSLY? Why not just enjoy the day? What is the point of Carole telling Kristen that Ramona sees her as just another pretty face? Kristen, who thinks Carole is the most sane, states that Ramona is just another petty bitch. Stir that pot unnecessarily, Carole. Sonja saddens me. She’s still pushing for the kid’s phone number at the end of the trip.

RHONY

WHAT? Kristen calls her husband “Woo”. As much as their relationship freaks me out, I think it’s cute that she has a nickname for him. Josh is not happy to hear about Ramona’s “Jerry Springer”/bar brawl behavior.

We end with Heather taking the women into town and the scenery is gorgeous. The women sit down to dinner and I’m hopeful that it will be a pleasant one. Sonja (jokingly) refers to Carole as a bullshit bisexual and tells the group that Carole told her she’s had experiences with women but turned Sonja down. Carole (jokingly) says that she didn’t want to ruin the friendship. Carole both makes it clear in a TH that she’s not into women, though she loves them, and manages to play 6 degrees of separation just to drag Aviva into the conversation. She says that if she were into women, she’d never sleep with Sonja because that means she would have slept with Harry and by extension Aviva – who is not her type. Ramona gets dragged back into the conversation as well. As the conversation continues, Lu shares a text from a friend who states that Ramona is at a party in the Hamptons.

Dinner in Town

Sonja looks crestfallen. She has no response to the women discussing Ramona’s use of her childhood abuse to manipulate others. Sonja finally speaks up and refuses to believe she’s been lied to. Sonja is a good friend. I just don’t think she has good judgment in friends. She is cleared of her illusions about Ramona when a picture is shared showing Ramona having a good time. The group plans to have an intervention to express their displeasure with Ramona’s behavior.

Ramona Busted

What Ramona did was AWFUL, there’s no way around that. To hear the women gleefully laugh about planning an “intervention” to get even was awful, too. An intervention is not a joke and it’s not meant to be used as part of some revenge scheme. Each of those women should have known better. That said?

Next week should be interesting and Bravo may just make up for the 20 minutes I (we?) lost.

 

About the Author

I’m an exasperated soap fan who keeps hanging on – waiting for the daytime I once loved to return to its former glory! Hey, it doesn’t hurt to have a dream. I learned to love soaps thanks to my wonderful mother and grandmother. I’ll always have fond memories of daytime, most especially of ‘Another World’, my first stoap love. The ever great, but sadly defunct, daytime shows like Ryan’s Hope, Search for Tomorrow, The Doctors, Loving, and many others keep a special place in my heart, as well.

    I too found Sonja’s behavior with the twenty year old sad and embarrassing, she’s old enough to be his great-granny and as such should be ashamed for scaring the poor kid with her advances…Great point about Andy addressing Ramona’s violence towards Kristen at the lake..I look forward to seeing how he “spins” this one too!
    BTW, nicely done “AATT”..

    • RonnieIsBack

      She was awful…

  • WestCoastFeed

    Super recap, North. Too much bad acting from Ramona, followed by too much bad acting from Kristen. And thank you for pointing out the similarity in this fight with the Atlanta fight. Will Andy try to chastise Kristen for provoking Ramona?

    • RealitySuxx

      LMAO…Andy and Bravotv were BLASTED last night with comparisons and #DoubleStandards hashtags. I LMAO.

      • Norrth

        Thanks for posting that. I’m going to go check it out!

    • Norrth

      I can’t wait to find out! @Andy painted himself into a corner on this one.

  • Raine Woman

    Great recap, thanks Norrth!

    Is it just me or does anyone else think there should be a mandatory Housewives retirement age for all the franchises? Ramonja isn’t funny anymore. I don’t know which one has become more uncomfortable to watch. They tied last night, for me.

    • Tigerlily

      Hi’ya Raine! Not sure if I agree with the mandatory age cap, (Being as I am getting up there in age too! LOL! Not an old broad yet but inching ever closer!) ITA about it not being fun or funny anymore. RaMOANa was way out of line with her response to being splashed. Who does that? She needs help & it’s just getting sad to watch her & Sonja make fools of themselves every single week! The ‘intervention’ next week should be a doozy! Hope that table in the restaurant they picked is bolted down cause I can def see RaMOANa doing a ‘Giudice’ table flip fo’ sure!

      • Raine Woman

        Hey Tiger! Pleasure, as always!

        Maybe I should rephrase that. Although I can’t figure out how. LOL

        While all the Housewives have their antics, certain behavior at a certain age becomes difficult to watch and loses it entertainment value. Lady Morgan transforming into Lady Organ is not a good look for someone her age. And I’m not saying she is old at all, she’s not! She’s not 20 though, and it’s creepy (come on that was soooooooo creepy!!) and desperate! Ramona is just seething with jealousy worse than a 6-year old. I could watch one of those kiddie pageant shows to see that. What happened to the confident, accomplished, business woman? Regression!
        Just MHO. Hope you’re having a great day, Tiger!!

        • Tigerlily

          Thanks Raine. No offense taken. I totally understand what you mean about certain behavior at a certain age & Sonja is just icky when it comes to her cougar ways. Gosh, she was practically frothing at the mouth for that poor kid! Like a hungry wolf lookin’ at a new spring lamb! YUCK! ACK! ICK!
          I felt so bad for him. Poor kid was trying so hard to be a gentleman & reject her delicately & she just didn’t get it.
          Who throws themselves at men/boys like that?
          To quote Kenya…. Got 99 problems but dick has never been one!
          FOTFLMAO @ Lady ORGAN! HILARIOUS!
          Hope you are having a fab day too Raine! Happy Wednesday!

  • nan/4

    Great recap Norrth! This is what I think. I could certainly be wrong, though. Here goes…. I think that these episodes were filmed when it was rumored and then verified that Mario was cheating on her, and that he had gotten his young blond mistress pregnant. I’m not excusing her deplorable behavior, I just think that it might explain why she’s even more deplorable than ever! She looks emotionally shaky to me, and seems totally unnatural around Mario. Again, not in any way defending her, but it might be anger and frustration over her own situation being redirected onto others….especially young pretty blonds?? Just sayin’….

    Hope everyone is doing well today! 🙂

    • Tigerlily

      Hi Nan! What’s shakin’ bacon? Check your email when you have a chance.
      Some obscene & disgusting behavior on the HW’s these last few weeks huh?
      Between RaMOANa & Sonja, I’m not sure who was more cringe worthy! Def agree RaMOANa booked out of the Bershires to catch Mario with the side piece. I believe that it coincides with the filming we are just seeing now. Hope all is well with you. Enjoy your day Hon! ت

      • nan/4

        I FOUND you! YAY! Check yours now…..;-)

        • Tigerlily

          K. will do.

        • Tigerlily

          I sent another email Nan, check when you can. It’s showing me that it was sent this time, so I hope you get it. lol! Stupid computer!
          The later gator thing was too funny btw!

          • nan/4

            Got it! I now have a HUGE smile on my face all because of you. :-))

          • Tigerlily

            Aww shucks! Ditto Nan. You definitely made my day. ❤
            I felt so bad when I saw your response cause I wrote you back like a 2 page friggin’ biopic in response & it disappeared. LOL! I would never not respond to you. No way. It’s just not in me.

          • Tigerlily

            Wait does the never & not double negative in that sentence cancel each other out? Arrggghh Catholic school problems! LOLOLOL!
            You know what I mean! Hee-hee!

          • nan/4

            LOL!!!!!

          • nan/4

            I’m looking forward to chatting again soon! Take very good care of yourself, my friend. I don’t know how to do a heart, but if I could I would! 😉

          • Tigerlily

            I cheat copy & paste! My good buddy Twi gave me the link.

            I posted in the wrong place. Oops.

            Okay. One more time:

            (✿◠‿◠) IT WORKED!!!!!!!! This is so much fun!!!!! LOL!!

            Nite.

          • Tigerlily

            Night Nan! Glad you are enjoying it! It’s silly but I like them & have such fun with them! I guess I’m easily amused! LOL! Have agood night Hon. Look forward to chatting with you soon! Toodles!

    • Norrth

      I agree. I think it added to her usually difficult self and amp’d her up. Last week when he thanked Heather for taking Ramona way, she did not look pleased. The ep before he was back patting over “good cheaters” vs bad ones. She needs to be home dealing with her issues.

    • Sara

      Hi Nan. I agree. I noticed when Sonja was getting emotional about Ramona and she kept saying over and over, “she has me and she has her daughter”? Sonja knew what was going on with Ramon and Mario. I think that’s why she reacted the way she did.

      • nan/4

        I heard Sonja say that too Sara. Nice to see you again…

        Be well! 😉

        • Sara

          Nice to see you, Nan. Hope you have a nice weekend.

          Take care! 🙂

  • Tigerlily

    Great recap Norrth!
    Goodness gracious. Where do I begin?

    First RaMOANa. How on earth do you equate splashing water on you perfectly ‘coiffed’ blow-dried hair to throwing an object at someone’s face? & I do believe she would have hit or pushed Kristen with the oar too if other’s had not intervened.
    FFS RaMOANa! What the hell is wrong with you? How is that an acceptable or appropriate response? Would you allow Avery to respond in that manner. & the simple fact that you couldn’t even own your bad behavior nor give an honest & sincere apology, speaks volumes about you as a person!
    It was WATER!!!!
    Yes Kristen was juvenile for splashing you, but isn’t that what being on a trip on the lake & the water is all about? Letting your hair down & having fun. Like kids!
    The BS about your childhood memories was as crystal clear as the reason you jetted, (or should that be propellered), out of the Berkshires. Cause Mario was in the Hamptons with his side piece. BOOM!
    No excuse! Andy needs to cut RaMOANa loose. She is a dangerous & uncontrollable entity.

    Second Sonja. Oh Sonja! You are just too damn desperate & it’s really sad to watch. I do wish people would stop with the ageism comments but yes it was nasty & extremely uncomfortable to watch her zero in on that young man like a hungry wolf. Women don’t behave like that Sonja, especially not on National television. Sonja please stop. For your daughter’s sake. Please stop!

    LuAnn is being LuAnn the Cuntess. (& no that is not a spelling error. LOL!) Nothing new there.

    Heather, I really like how she tried so hard to make it an enjoyable time for everyone. RaMOANa’s snipes at her & her home were petty & totally uncalled for. She should have never accepted the invitation if she was just going there to piss on everyone’s cornflakes!

    Kristen, I think I like her. I definitely like that she stood up to cray-cray RaMOANa!

    Carole I’m still on the fence about. Sometimes I really like her & other times, she just needs to pipe down. Love her friendship with Heather though.

    & A-DIVA. So glad you weren’t on! You weren’t missed by me at all!

    & there you have it! Sorry about the ‘festo’! LOL!
    Hope everyone is having a great day! Enjoyl! ツ

    • nan/4

      Hi Sweetie! You are SO spot on, my dear. I agree with everything you posted here. Great minds??? lol I’ll talk with you later, gator! 😉

    • Norrth

      I had genuine sympathy for Ramona when it seemed as if she realized what she did wrong and was sorry. What I saw last night was CHILLING! She was not at all moved by Kristen telling her that she drew blood. That was terrible. Ramona has real money, let her sit home and count it but get her off screen. She went from the Berkshires to a Hamptons party? In her shoes I would be home crying that I hurt someone.

      • Tigerlily

        ITA Norrth. I would be mortified & absolutely heart-broken that I had or that I could have inflicted some serious damage to another person by losing my cool over someone splashing water on me! Just mortified! I mean I couldn’t, just wouldn’t be able to apologize enough for my actions! She really didn’t care she hurt Kristen. It was unbelievable to watch her be so angry & unapologetic.
        RaMOAna needs to go. If Porsha was fired for her behavior then Andy needs to fire RaMOANa too!

    • Birdie11

      This is inspired T-Lily!! RIGHT ON!!!

      • Tigerlily

        Ha-ha. Thanks Birdie. Appreciate it. You guys are always so kind to me!

        • Birdie11

          I wish we could all go hang at Heather’s place!! Looked FUN!!

          • Tigerlily

            Oh ditto! That would be fun. Looked like great place to just chill & relax & swim & canoe. My Uncle had a beautiful lake front property in NH & when I was a kid it was like the best part of my Summer vacation to go there! Great, great memories. Swimming, canoeing, boating, hiking, campfires, laying out under the stars, playing Manhunt with my sisters & my cousins in woods in the pitch black! Loved it. Would have so much fun at Heather’s & she was so sweet & so gracious.

          • Birdie11

            I had a childhood friend with a similar place (I think it was even in NH!)…so fun! But even more fun with someone arranging great meals and fun activities. Heather was the best hostess ever…I liked her trying to get them to really FEEL the place.

          • Tigerlily

            She really tried so hard. She had everything ready & waiting for all the Ladies. There was nothing lacking. She just really wanted them to let their hair down & just be at peace. Enjoy some truly care-free time. You can’t ask for a better gift nor a better Hostess.

          • Birdie11

            I would have been in heaven…just that swing alone!!

          • Tigerlily

            Oh was that not heavenly! I would have been in or on the water or on the swing! My 2 faves! LOL!

      • I agree….SPOT ON T-Lily!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Ra-Drunka is a baddddd actress and a horrible friend.
    Sonja needs Cougar Rehab..just embarassing
    Kristen is cool in my book.
    Carole…what ass? I still do not see it…

    • Tigerlily

      LMBO Ronnie @ “Ra-Drunka is a baddddd actress and a horrible friend.Sonja needs Cougar Rehab..just embarassing!” Too funny!

  • RonnieIsBack

    And this bish Ramona had wanted to hit Kristen in the face with something since the spa. Remember she threw wine at her face FIRST, and then Kristen spashed her with water…
    Now at this trip I guess she wanted the glass, and the oar…crazy bish

  • RonnieIsBack

    and Lu making that linebacker comment next week..see this is why I loooooove Lu!!!

  • Sara

    I felt about 87 degrees of discomfort last night watching Sonja play that whole coquettish role with the college boy. I’m seriously hoping it was her “schtick” and storyline because it was just pathetic to watch a 50 year old blatantly asking a 20 year old for a booty call. Was hoping he’d give her a fake number.

    • Birdie11

      Sonya is acting like something is seriously wrong with her.

      • Agreed. When they were in the woods and she was hugging tree, I’m afraid all Sonja gleaned from that was the idea to pitch “Hugging Trees by Sonja” to her Nigerian investors. Nothing would better compliment her “white and yellow diamond line.” And, if that doesn’t pan out, wouldn’t Macy’s simply adore her new artisanal wood-burning toaster oven?

        • Birdie11

          What about her weeping about Ramona’s father to her over and over?She needs meds, and NOW. Didn’t that trip look fun though? I thought it looked FAB.

          • Sonja and Ramona are on very shaky ground. Xanax and Prozac Unhinged. Heather’s place looked FUN but I need air conditioning.

          • Birdie11

            Yeah…but I spent part of my childhood in the northeast…there are literally like 3 nights a year you need it. I would throw water on you, to cool you off!!!

          • Ahahahaha! Sounds like a plan. We would have a blast!!! Drinking , laughing. OMG! Out of freaking control with the jokes!

          • Birdie11

            I’ll come thru with a 1960s, CUTE Elvis impersonator!

          • Ok, I’m I a total cornball for liking the Elvis impersonator? I thought he was the best part of the show.

          • Birdie11

            I thought it was great!!!

  • Tigerlily

    Hey! Where my girls at? I see Nan & Ronnie & WCF & Raine, but where’s my Doc & Twi & Naws & Birdie? Where all my girls at? LOL! Need some sass & snark on this thread!

    • Tigerlily

      Oops never mind found you all on the new thread! Not too slow! LOL!

    • Birdie11

      UGH T-Lily! I have been so busy…it stinks.

      • Tigerlily

        Awwww, bummer! But glad to see you now Birdie! 😉

        • Birdie11

          You too T-Lily?? What did you think of crazy Ramona and skeezy Sonya chasing a practical teenager??

          • Disgusting!

            OMG, I was so embarrassed for that poor boy and most especially for Sonja. Is she so clueless that she doesn’t realize how pathetic she looks on TV? I kept waiting for someone from Dateline NBC to pop out and ask Sonja why she hitting on a minor. I actually sat down and had a conversation with myself, wondering if the roles were reversed and it was a man hitting on a 20 year old woman, would I feel the same way? YES, I would. I enjoy Sonja’s antics and wackiness but she seems to have crossed the line into train wreck sad. I changed the channel but bounced back periodically to no avail.

          • Birdie11

            Is there something seriously WRONG with her?? When she told him that living with his parents was a deal breaker I could not believe my ears. Somehow she had turned it into her fending HIM off??? OMGGGGG

          • VERY WRONG! How about when she was shaking her flabby booty in his face? GROSS! Dignity is much more becoming on a middle aged woman than desperation.

          • Birdie11

            I liked when he told her to go ahead and jump in…to leave him alone!!!

          • Yes! And what is Ramona’s obsession with her hair? It is beyond strange to me since it pretty much looks like crap regardless. I remember in past seasons when she was comfortable with her hair in a messy knot. It looked cute when it was up and casual on Scary Island, and even last year when Aviva was pissed about not having the GD banner put up in her honor. Ramona wore her hair up and very casual. Why the sudden obsession? I would be embarrassed to be so freaked out about getting my hair wet when all of the other gals were more than happy to be casual and unconcerned.

          • Birdie11

            Getting blow dries (which I have never had btw, lol) before every water venue is beyond strange. I assume it’s Mario’s whoring around that has put a stick up her butt. She is NO FUN!! It blows…I am bummed. I would be grabbing the chance to slug around casual…but that’s me.

          • Tigerlily

            That was just too much desperation for my taste. I’ve never known any woman to beg for it ever & Sonja practically fell to her knees, (pun intended!). It was nasty!

  • Birdie11

    All I have to say is that I would have LOVED this trip from beginning to end. I am figuring out that I have very similar taste as Heather…which is weird. Ramona is NO FUN anymore, and Sonya made a complete fool of herself on the boat. UGH!! I was embarrassed watching it.

  • murlut

    Ramona has become an entitled OLD HAG. No one wants to see her or hear her anymore. I juse to love her but now, too much ego and too much alcohol

  • Dani-K

    Now that we know that Mario and Ramona have separated, I think this whole thing was rooted in her attempt to get to the Hamptons and surprise Mario. Remember the dinner episode earlier where Mario kept thanking Heather, telling her he loved her, for taking the wives away? I think this was at the heart of everything Ramona had going on. She was projecting all her anxiety onto Kristen and manipulated Sonja (tried to w. Carole but she wasn’t buying it) with stories of her childhood and father. And don’t get me started on Sonja. How pathetic!
