We begin tonight’s episode of “Ladies of London” with Juliet in the kitchen with her adorable children, baking cookies. Of course, the whole point of the scene is for Juliet to reflect on her behavior with Annabelle at the 4th of July party. Next we join Caroline and Annabelle who are reflecting on Juliet’s behavior at the 4th of July party. Caroline explains that Juliet is someone who acts first and thinks second. And that’s probably why she was selected to be on the show.

Caprice is at a photo shoot for Ok! Magazine. She reminds us that soon she will be flying off to Los Angeles for three months and returning with two baby boys. And there she has her story when the children ask “where do baby’s come from.” Los Angeles! She phones her friend Julie who is actually Lady Julie Hinchingbrooke to ask about Annabelle. Really it’s to introduce Lady Julie to us because she is the newest cast member. Caprice invites her to a hat party that Juliet is having.

Juliet joins Gregor for a drink and brings up the distress about Annabelle’s behavior at the party. Gregor said that meeting Annabelle was like meeting the grim reaper and they deduce her as being passive-aggressive. Who needs a licensed therapist when you’ve got these two? Gregor tells his wife that although she was most likely right, her manner is intolerable. Juliet only hears the first part. And that she has passion, which Gregor agrees with. Juliet gushes that her husband is like Yoda. Of course, if that were true, he would have said, “Passion you have.”

Ladies of London

Pip the hat maker arrives at Juliet’s house and will explain proper hat etiquette to the ladies and hopefully give Noelle a crash course. One by one, the ladies arrive. As per usual, the Brits are bored and the Americans are having fun. The ladies place a silly looking hat on Caroline and tell her she looks great – they are lying, Caroline! Caroline acknowledges that the giddy Americans bouncing around make her happy. So glad.

Caprice and Lady Julie go into the kitchen where Noelle swoops in joins them. She gushes about an article about Caprice, and how she wants to be just like Caprice, and how the press are really cruel to her, and how they misconstrued a story about her and Scot, and how everyone thought they were breaking up. Noelle spoke non-stop about herself that I’m surprised Lady Julie’s and Caprice’s eyes weren’t spinning. In a TH Caprice says that Noelle wants to be famous and she should work very hard to be her best friend. These are words that Caprice will most likely regret.

Juliet and Lady Julie talk and we learn that Lady Julie is also an American from Chicago. They bond over their love for shopping at Target. Caprice is horrified. Caroline brings up her sadness that Annabelle couldn’t be there because it was too last minute. Juliet explains this is how she rolls. Caroline explains that Brits need one to two months advance notice. Caprice looks horrified (again) that Caroline has forgotten Juliet’s behavior and gives three excuses to leave.

Noelle and Scot are flat shopping again. This time the place is $10K per month. Not a lot of square footage for that amount. As they walk around the apartment, Scot looks like he’s wearing a wool sweater three sizes too small the way he pulls at the collar. Noelle wants the place and Scot tells her he’ll sort it out. That doesn’t sound like a commitment to me, but fingers crossed for Noelle.

Ladies of London 7

Annabelle is backstage getting ready for the fashion show for Conchita Perez. The show is being held underground. Unfortunately it is raining very hard and water is leaking in. They’ve patched it up, but must hurry or the water will burst through. Everything is thrown into high-gear. The hair and shoes are hideous, but maybe that’s brilliant because you only want look at the clothes. Some are wearable, some are avant-garde. One model was the female Edwardian Scissorhands. The event is considered a success.

Ladies of London

Caroline and Caprice are shopping. I’m surprised by Caroline’s shorts because it seems as if she’s borrowed the cut-off’s from Juliet that she recently ridiculed. They are still discussing the Juliet/Annabelle incident. Caprice confronts Caroline on her non-confrontation. Each week there is a word used that must be looked up. This week’s word is: fishwife. That’s why Caroline didn’t join in, so she wouldn’t be a fishwife. Oxford definition: a coarse-mannered woman who is prone to shouting. Thank you Caroline for this week’s English lesson.

The two discuss a baby shower that Caroline has offered to throw for Caprice. Caprice tells her that she’d like to have it at a restaurant. Caroline finds this suggestion rude. Caprice says that Caroline’s home is an hour away and her friends won’t drive that far. Caroline feels that these aren’t really your friends then. Caprice is insistent on having it a restaurant. Then, in a TH Caprice says that this shower is a celebration to honor her children and if she wants to have a baby shower on the moon, then who cares. Umm, Caprice, you do realize that your friends will have to travel longer than an hour, right?

We join Noelle on the street when she calls Marissa to tell her the annoying news that the flat she was supposed to move into yesterday is not ready. Scot has told Noelle that it will be ready on Monday. (Raise your hand if you think it will be ready on Monday.) Noelle and Scot meet up and shop for wine. She warns him that if it isn’t ready on Monday, she is prepared to reevaluate their relationship. Scot gets firm and says they are going to go… have a glass of wine. Noelle laughs and says he’s such a great negotiator and that’s why she loves him. Noelle, sweetie, he’s been going through a divorce for four years, I’m not so sure he’s a great negotiator.

The ladies arrive at Marissa’s house prior to the Sandown Horse Races. Only two of the five ladies have hats. Noelle is not one of the two, obviously still not recovered from her last hat trauma. They get into the limo and drive to the races. In the car, Caprice brings up the Juliet/Annabelle incident again. My goodness woman, can’t you get over this? Even the Real Housewives of New Jersey don’t rehash events this long.

Ladies-of-London-1

After the race, which the ladies lose money at, Lady Julie invites them to her in-laws estate. Noelle perks up at the word: estate. We learn that Lady Julie’s in-law’s are the Earl and Countess of Sandwich. I’ve eaten there before, Noelle. It’s not that fancy. Tune in next week for Ladies of London when we see if the ladies dine on sandwiches.

    I am in LOVE with Caroline. She’s British snooty, minus the plank sized stick that is seemingly stuck up the rest of the Brits buttcheeks. She is snarky, real, and FUN…I love her!! I can’t deal with Caprice’s mannequin face, there is nothing pretty about her. It would be nice to see Annabelle crack a smile…I hope Juliet torments her with Americanism the rest of the season.

    • I love Caroline too. She’s my favorite.

      • Birdie11

        I could’ve guessed it! 😉

    • i love Caroline as well !!

      • Birdie11

        Hey Dani and Dox! I love her tongue in cheek insults about Juliet’s clothes…and the way Juliet plays along…why can’t more women be like that? Happy Wednesday!

    • Dani-K

      I agree that what makes Caroline likable, even thought she’s British snooty, is that she’s unapologetic for it. She owns it. There’s a fun American inside, trying to get out!

  • Birdie11

    Seriously…if people are put off by driving half an hour…who needs them? Caprice is just ridiculous. I’m glad Caroline didn’t let her jerk her around.

    • Exactly!!! First of all, Caprice should have shut the pluck up and let Caroline give her the baby shower how she wanted to do it. Caprice could have had thrown her herself a 2nd shower and do it the way she wanted.

      • Zoe D.

        Hi Doc…Hi Birdie.

        I agree…if she wanted a media circus…she can throw that for herself. We all know she loves the paparazzi. A baby shower is meant to be calm and relaxing with lots of food and good friends. An intimate affair. Caroline’s home would have been perfect…not a restaurant.

        • Hi ZOE

          I agree if she wanted a media circus…she can throw that for herself.

    • Seriously !! its just 30 mins….in Texas u rive for hours to get anywhere

  • Great recap Dan-K!

    Caprice is extremely High School. If I was Caroline, I wouldn’t waste one iota of my energy on someone who’s that rude and condescending. Caprice feigning “support” and “worry” for Annabelle is ridic. Please Chile!! She actually considers herself British and borderline denies her own country. Granted, I would love to have a different accent and it’d be fun to be from Europe but she’s just an ass kisser.

    • Zoe D.

      It’s like she’s afraid to be herself…and have a real opinion. I think she sucks up to those she thinks can get her ahead…or keep her relevant. It’s coming off as fake, and anti American. I like Annabelle…but Caprice is up her ass…like Noelle is up Caprice’s ass. Lots of ass kissing…lol

      • Yes! Exactly.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Have you ever noticed that Caprice starts EVERY FRIGGIN sentence with–“You are so beautiful”!!!!! What a fake.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      No, Seussy–your accent is just fine!!!! Having a British accent is so difficult for even so many Brits—Many of the professional women I met there (one was a Ph.D.) worry that they are not “posh” enough and drop their H’s!!!! It’s still a really “class” type accent. Another woman I met worked in Parliament and had to use the Tony Blair accent!!!!!

  • Hi Zoe! Giiiiiiirl…Caroline was pissed about that baby shower shade. She was on Twitter last night and tweeted her own poll, asking folks was Caprice rude. LOL!!!

  • Babson_Chick

    Thanks for the great recap. Have to say that Caroline is my obsolute fav – eventhough she hired me and then fired me on twitter yesterday – guess I’ll live.

  • twifan2

    Does Caroline not remember Ascot?!
    All those crazy, pretty hats there! 🙂

    • i love all those awesome hats lol

  • twifan2

    Love your recap, Dan-K! 🙂
    BUT what is that pink thing Juliette is wearing? :/

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Everything Juliette wears looks a mess!!! Still don’t believe she is in PR fashion—Her choice of clothes was a mess!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the recap, Dani-K. I gave them a try last night, but need more viewings to get them all sorted out. I just googled Mapperton Gardens and really want to see that episode. The gardens look spectacular. I hope they spend more time in the garden. Interiors of great house are interesting for a few minutes only.

    • ME 2 … I really want to see that episode. The gardens look spectacular.

  • LOVE IT !!

  • Birdie11

    I LOVED the raucous Target love fest! SO GOOD…annoy those Brits…U-S-A!! Long live Target and Cheez-its!!

    • GO USA…GO USA!! (Birdie’s cheering squad)

      • Birdie11

        YES!! GO GO TARGET!! Lmao…I wish I could be a completely obnoxious American on that show!!

        • Ahahaha! I get the feeling you would RUB it in their faces. And you would pull me right into it.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Birdie, my late hubbie was a Brit and when we visited there, we all received warm, wonderful welcomes. I would never think of being obnoxious American, as they people there loved us so much. We never ever felt like we were not completely welcome when we were there.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      And I loved Harrod’s more than Target!!!!!

  • noarguingwithstupid

    Love all the ladies except Juliet–She can leave the show at any time, as far as I am concerned!!

    • WestCoastFeed

      NAWS!! How good to see you posting again!!!! How are you feeling?

      • noarguingwithstupid

        Better, but posting still makes me a little sick to my tummy!!!! (The meds, I think!!!)

        • OMG!!!! NAWS!!!! I have missed you SO MUCH! ♥

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I have missed you too, SOOOOO much!!!!! I just need to find a comfortable position to type–My knees are totally shot and making my life very difficult. I hope to be on and off all day long…..

          • Ok, looking forward to it. What brought on the decline. Was it the meds?

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I am just allergic to every darned drug the docs have tried. I can only take tylenol and so many of the new “cures” have Aspirin based ingredients.

        • twifan2

          NAWS!!! 🙂
          Glad to see you ‘almost’ back! 🙂
          How’s youses been? Maybe you need some glasses?
          How’s The Pennster?
          Chats sends his Hello’s! Addie is with me this time. AND OMG you should see the messes I come home to! 😮
          Take it slow, NAWS! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            I have my glasses on at all times!!!! I really did love this show, even though I didn’t care for many of the women at all, except Caroline. Maybe if there is a season 2 they can find some more interesting American woman. I did enjoy Marissa and I love that she has embraced her hubby’s homeland.

          • twifan2

            Maybe a new script for them? Could be a cause for your nausea. :/
            I need to go back for a visit there-soon. 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            Did you see Jonathon Ryse (sp??) Myers at Anabelles fashion show in the tunnel????

          • twifan2

            NOOOOOOoooooo!!!! REALLY!?
            I’ll have to re-watch that epi again! 🙂

          • noarguingwithstupid

            They even caption his name on screen–He looks marvy, as always!!!
