Ladies of London

On this episode of “Ladies of London,” we join Juliet, Caroline, Marissa and Noelle back at the hotel near Mapperton, the following morning. The ladies are just learning that Caprice has left. They deduce that Caprice is jealous that Caroline is getting along so well with the Americans and basically start trash-talking Caprice. Except for Marissa. She is the only one that defends Caprice, reminding the ladies that she’s seven months preggers. Juliet is not willing to cut Caprice any slack. Juliet and Marissa argue about Caprice and Marissa’s sunny disposition. Juliet announces that when she was pregnant, she was the nicest person. To which Marissa replies, “I wish I had known you then.” Boom!

Annabelle is on her way to the stables. The horse racing event is in three weeks and she needs to get used to her horse, Mr. Fickle. (His name should have been the first clue.) She thinks that Alex McQueen would have been conflicted over her horse racing hobby. Her trainer says the most difficult part is getting the horse to the starting gate.

Back at brunch with the ladies, Luke asks if they are missing someone. Juliet and Marissa get into a tiff again over the tiff from ten minutes earlier. Marissa refuses to say cheers to Juliet. Marissa then gets up from the table, knocking over her chair, and runs outside. Noelle runs after her. In tears Marissa explains that she suffers from being overly-empathetic. I’m sure it’s a real syndrome listed in the New England Journal of Medicine. Back inside, Juliet says that Marissa suffers from over-sugar-coating syndrome. Which I’m sure is also in the New England Journal of Medicine

The camera cuts back outside to Noelle who is explaining to Marissa that Juliet suffers from not-understanding-that-people-can-be-nice syndrome. Okay, that one’s probably not in the NEJM. Caroline decides to go outside and diagnose the problem herself. Tears come again from Marissa. She says that she does not want to be called Mother Teresa anymore. Funny, Marissa doesn’t remind me of Mother Teresa at all. If anyone, she reminds me of a blond Katie Holmes. Caroline assures her that no one thinks she’s Mother Teresa.

Ladies of London

Back inside with everyone, the Juliet/Marissa tiff reignites yet again. Marissa says ‘you can’t be mean then be my friend’. Juliet says ‘you need to get real.’ This time it’s Juliet who runs from the room in tears. Caroline is befuddled that women can behave like this over brunch and champagne. So are we Caroline. Everyone knows that champagne makes the world a better place. 

Ladies of London

We are back in London with Scot and Noelle moving into the new flat. I would have bet several pounds that the flat was going to fall flat on its butt, but happily, I was wrong. They toast with champagne. Noelle calls her mentor, Caprice to gossip see how she’s feeling. Caprice says that she’s tired. She met with some buyers today who loved her collection and blah, blah, blah. Exact words. Glad she’s humble. 

Ladies of London

The day has finally arrived for Marissa to receive her British citizenship. She and her husband Matt are on their way to court, reciting how she will obey the Queen of England, or something like that. Afterwards they go to Claridges Hotel to celebrate with…you guessed it…champagne. Matt gives her a present to mark the day. The bag says: Faberge. So of course, I’m thinking: Egg. Nope, pink diamond earrings. Too bad they weren’t British flag earrings. That look would have been priceless. Marissa ruins the moment by telling her husband about the tiff at brunch.

Juliet visits Caroline at her office. They play with jewelry totaling over $575K. Caroline brings up brunch and says once again, that Juliet needs to learn when to quit. This issue has come up almost every episode. It’s what Juliet does. Deal with it. Juliet reminds Caroline of the charity event that Noelle is hosting. Caroline flaps her arms like a chicken, re-enacting Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz when she wants to go home. Umm, ruby slippers don’t ring any bells? Somehow I thought they would with Caroline. In fact, I’m surprised Caroline doesn’t sell the slippers in her luxury gift business.

Caprice and Lady Julie are in the car on their way to Noelle’s charity event. Caprice is complaining how hot it is. Lady Julie says the difference between America and England is America has air-conditioning everywhere. England does not. God Bless America! The charity event is outside and everyone looks hot, and not hot in a good way. Hot in the melting way. The charity, Chasing Zero, is a foundation that provides access to HIV treatment and care in sub-Saharan Africa. Plus, Noelle wants to build a positive image in the press. She said that…out loud. Kind of diminishes the altruism a bit.

Ladies of London

All the ladies attend the event. Caprice and Caroline keep their distance. Juliet phones Marissa and asks her to come out front so they can talk. Breaking news: Juliet apologizes! Caroline and Noelle are inside chatting about charities when Caprice asks for Lady Julie’s help to lure Noelle away. She wants to speak to her puppet protégé. Caprice asks Noelle if she was annoyed with her for leaving Mapperton early. To which Noelle responds, “No, not at all.” This is Noelle’s problem. Why didn’t she just say, “I was disappointed that you left early.” Instead, Noelle tells Caprice that it’s hard being stuck in the middle. And, why didn’t Caprice just say? “Then stop putting yourself in the middle, girl.” 

Ladies of London

Scot and Noelle are at the flat again, setting up house. She tells him that they won’t be entertaining much because this place is just temporary. Scot gets a confused/annoyed look on his face. The phone rings and it’s Marissa calling to say that Caprice called her to ask about hosting a baby shower at one of her many restaurants. The reason Marissa is calling Noelle is to ask if she’d like to help. And since Noelle suffers from brown-nose syndrome, she said yes.

Ladies of London

Caroline, Noelle, and Juliet are shopping and drinking water. Just kidding. They’re drinking champagne and Noelle tells them about co-hosting the baby shower for Caprice. Caroline rehashes the rude behavior she received from Caprice first with the request, then with the resignation to host the baby shower. In a TH Juliet accuses Noelle of being Caprice’s minion. And in a different TH Noelle accuses Juliet of being Caroline’s minion. Had these ladies all just watched Despicable Me

Ladies of London

In the last scene, Annabelle is on her way to practice racing Mr. Fickle. She says he is getting fidgety. Annabelle lets the horse run full speed, up to 45 miles per hour. The scene fades to black as we hear Annabelle’s worried voice call out. 

Ladies of London 2

After the commercial, Annabelle is in a room, sitting on a couch, wearing a hospital gown. Lady Julie arrives with kisses and sympathy. She advises Annabelle to go ahead a cry. But Annabelle is such a tough cookie, only a few tears are shed. She has broken her pelvis. Her last remark is, “What have I done?”

    I find Caroline to be the most genuine of all of the ladies, and I like her very much. She’s my favorite. I think that what Caprice did to her concerning the baby shower was a real slap in the face to Caroline, and she is quickly becoming my least favorite of the bunch.

    Have a nice Tuesday!

      I agree Caroline is my favorite too. She’s definitely a bit snotty, but it’s genuine and not mean-spirited at all. Preview looks awesome. “Cappers” shows up possibly uninvited to a chic little dinner party at Caroline’s where she wouldn’t deign to have the shower. My dear, that’s simply not done.

      Hi nan!! Agree about Caroline and tacky Caprice!!

  • Love the recap Dani-K.

    I love this show. Last night’s episode reminded how the US Hw’s shows used to be. I really like Juliet and Caroline because their both REAL. I wish the some of the American women (Marissa, Annabelle and Noelle) weren’t such wannabes. Some not all of the Brits can be as obnoxious as they perceive Americans. Caprice’s accident was tragic and she looked like she was in a world of pain. I hope she makes a full recovery and hopefully the fall dislodged the stick up her butt! 🙂

      I think that was Annabelle who fell off of the horse, Doc. That was awful! Caprice is the pregnant one who keeps switching who she asks to throw her baby shower. I thought that you were supposed to volunteer to throw a baby shower, at least that’s how they do it in the USA! 😮

      • Hi Nan– Thanks…yes, yes, yes! Had the names confused in my head. I corrected my post. I think Caprice is beyond obnoxious to ask any of the ladies to throw her a baby shower then refuse it and ask someone else. How tacky!

        • Babson_Chick

          Hi Doc!! Agree about Caprice – who is all about herself and herself!!

  • distressed

    Thanks for a great recap, Dani-K. Loving the show. This is what the reals should be.

    I can not stand Annabelle, but it was horrible to see her injured and in such excruciating pain. Good thing she called an American who knows you need to breathe and release. At first I thought it was going to amount to nothing, just some trumped up drama and a commercial break, but she got thrown going 45 MPH? She’s lucky she hurt her pelvis and not her back. A broken bone like that can heal very well, a disk in your back or neck could be a lifetime of pain.

    Good luck to Annabelle in her recovery process. Breathe and Release darling. It only gets better.

    Good afternoon everyone…*waving*

    First off let me say…”I LOVE THIS SHOW!”…okay, just had to get that out. I love the dynamic between Caroline and Juliet, they seem to be bonding beautifully. I just wish the other ladies would let Juliet just be herself, and quit trying to mold her into a stuffy British snob. Let her be her…even though it comes off as crazy sometimes. I for one happen to like it. It’s real and unrehearsed. Same with Caroline, we may not get all the sarcasm she throws out there about Americans…but for some reason, you know she’s just joking…and you can’t take her serious. I like that about her.

    Caprice is a piece of work. Wow…how do you go ask Noelle to throw you a baby shower knowing Caroline was doing that for you already? If your friends can’t find the time to go 45 min out of their way in your honor…then lose them. But then again…I think that was an excuse to bow out of it since she’s mad at Caroline, and of course the photographers won’t be there to take her picture. She’s such a photo hog…lol
    And the others need to stop with the excuse that she’s pregnant. I mean can you be up her ass anymore then you are? It’s not like she’s the first woman on earth to give birth…geez!

    Noelle, and Marissa are a waste of space. They bring nothing to the table but false airs which they seem to think we want to watch. Nope…not interested. Julie seems so down to earth…I like her. I just wish she had more airtime. I think she’s a gem waiting to shine if given the chance.

    Now, for Annabelle. Now, let me say…I have seen Annabelle in her runway days a while ago. I am a huge fan of Alexander McQueen’s work and I would catch his fashion shows on a now canceled CNN show called “Style with Elsa Klensch”.She was stunning and worked that runway like no other. So, I was a little disappointed at first to see how she was treating Juliet, and the other Americans. But for some reason…I wanted to give her a chance and I’m glad I did. I think Annabelle is misunderstood. She has that cool Marlene Dietrich type of personality…that keeps you watching. I think as the season moves on we’re going to see a different more pleasant side of Annabelle. She’s not perfect, and like my other favorites…she keeps it real. I like that about her. Watching that scene with her and Julia after her accident was so sad…you can see the pain and fear in her eyes. I hope she’s doing so much better now.

    Okay…I babbled enough…lol You all have a nice day!

      “waving back”!!!!! Would also like to see Lady Julie more,

  • Babson_Chick

    Will “baby showergate” ever end?? Of course if this is the worst thing to happen – that’s OK unlike our HW’s that love to beat a dead horse. Love Caroline’s wit – also watched her on WWHL last night – the “Heather” was also on (her high horse).
