The location? The Grand Ballroom of the Hammerstein Theater, midtown Manhattan. This is the first reunion I can remember immediately following the end of a season. I wonder if the producers are as tired of this season as I am and want it over ASAP. The seating is what I would deem the Petty Crowd (LuAnn, Kristen, 40s styled Heather, and newly blonde Carole) vs. the Loud and Proud (Ramona, Panty wearing Sonja, and Leg-firmly attached Aviva).  I have to say that Mr. Andy Cohen seemed anxious to get the questioning over with, no lingering around  with this guy. I share his (perceived) pain.

Andy comments on the jaw-dropping finale but wants to cover everything that led up to that moment. He begins with a discussion of the taglines. Carole claims that people, women in particular, come up to her and say her tagline. Ramona is put on the spot about her tagline associating her with drinking despite her protestations she’s not a heavy drinker. Kristen comments that her son knows the various tagline and loves the phrase “turtle time.” Kristen defends her tagline as a private joke between her and Josh.

Andy asks if Ramona dated Fabio. Ramona clarifies that he wanted to date her. The Nick Gregory date with Carole comes up and we find out Ramona dated him some 30 years ago. She was asked many times to marry, but refused. Tidbit: She and Mario married when she was  37. When she’s asked how Mario is doing, Ramona says that everyone in her family is fine and she drops the conversation, Andy vows to return to it.

Aviva confirms that George and Cody are still together. Heather’s domination of all things housewives is mentioned (mud race, repelling, etc). Sonja and Ramona referring to LuAnn as LuMan comes up. Sonja chalks it up to her height, the headdresses she wears when performing, and her deep voice, some of Sonja’s friends thought that LuAnn was a drag queen.

Andy says that he thinks that Kristen may be the sharpest tool in the shed despite her tagline and we see her various conflicts, primarily with Ramona and Aviva. The “Shut the F- Up” comment is raised as well as the attack on Aviva for having asthma. The conflict with Heather in Wyoming, as well (which earlier Andy commented that the Wy. conflict seemed to come out of nowhere and be based on nothing). What does Andy return to? The STFU comment from Aviva and that it occurred in front of the children. Ramona adds that Aviva can be full of contradictions. Aviva was upset that the confrontation took place in front of the children – stating that her children hear it at home, she just hopes that there were no children in front of the T.V.  She think that since other mothers have probably used the phrase in front of their children, no harm no foul. The “petty couch” says that there was no confrontation for Aviva to be upset about. Kristen says that since they are going to go round and round and round with it, that maybe Aviva should STFU. Neither Andy nor Aviva seem amused – or Andy may have been stunned.

The Yoland-Brandi lunch comes up. Carole loved the lunch and thought it was fun. Heather and Kristen talk about their fight which still perplexes Andy. The two state that Kristen was feeling the heat from the other women (which women?) and that Heather was the safest target since they had been friends for so long. Aviva gives Heather a compliment, stating, she handled the situation well – with grace. Heather (petty) refuses the compliment stating, it’s backhanded. She thinks it is a setup to take Carole down later.

Ramona is called out on drawing blood when throwing the glass at Kristen in the lake.  Kristen (petty) asks, as Ramona begins answering, if this is another time she’s supposed to wait to speak.  Aviva says that’s true in life and at reunions to let others finish. Kristen (petty) says, “Thanks for letting me know.” Get ready to try to untangle this logic. Ramona says she threw liquid at Kristen while she was in liquid. The “glass” was not glass but plastic. Kristen says hard plastic. Heather says cured plastic. Ramona reiterates that it was plastic. LuAnn was asked how bad it was as a former nurse. Her answer seems to indicate that it seemed worse than it was – there was a gash, but stitches were not needed. Heather talks about the tons of blood. I hate re-living anything to do with the worst three weeks in RHONY history. Ultimately, Ramona thinks that George’s assault, last year, was intentional. What she did to Kristen was an accident, she’s tired of apologizing since she has repeatedly said it’s wrong. She wants to know how many times she can say that.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-york-season-6-reunion-preview (1)

Ramona is nailed on expecting to be forgiven for her actions but not forgiving so easily. Sonja comes to her defense and says that she is not a judgmental person – she treats her friends like family. LuAnn jumps in to say that she will then claw your eyes out. Laughter from the petty couch.

The TMI moments are displayed – the various conversations about booty calls, blow jobs, orgasms, threesomes,  penis size, George and scrotum waxing, poking, anal, etc.

The facialist comes up. Carole says that she didn’t believe the rumors (though, I swear we heard her say in a previous episode that she talked to Russ and he said he didn’t touch Sonja and wouldn’t out of respect for her). LuAnn is asked if the rumors about her were true. No. Sonja is called out for flirting with Russ instead of him flirting with her. Aviva claims that Carole and Russ had an open relationship and is told to shut up. Carole feels that Sonja acting coy instead of denying the rumors only feeds the gossip. Sonja has said in a past episode that she doesn’t pay heed to any of the gossip, she just likes hearing what the word on the street is about the HW’s.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-york-season-6-reunion-preview (1)

Andy FINALLY tells Aviva that fans were overwhelmingly negative about George’s behavior and felt that he sexually harassed Ramona. Ramona vows to never be in his presence again. Though offended Ramona says that she does understand why Aviva can’t control her 80-year old father. The women of the petty couch who showed up to his engagement party, joked with him, laughed with him, are now telling Aviva that she encouraged him when she held his engagement party at the museum of sex. Andy asks about Cody’s age and wonders if it freaks Aviva out, it does not. Aviva hoped the relationship with Cody would tame him. Andy asks about sex with a 20-something year old. Sonja is actually tactful and doesn’t want to give details.

Kristen is asked how the blowjob barter system is working out for her. She asks if everyone likes her earrings. She laughs. Oy! LuAnn jokes that she is surprised that Kristen didn’t have four holes in her ears.

Sir Andy comments that Aviva, who has a law degree, walked into every scene armed with evidence as if she was in a courtroom. She sure as hell did! So we begin with the the ghost writer. We see flashbacks to the asthma med scenes, bits of the last episode, etc. Aviva lets us know that she was prepared because Sonja warned her. Heather believes that Aviva has asthma but that she’s exaggerating. She compares her son’s asthma to Aviva’s (you know, because it’s all the same). Carole and Aviva trade senseless barbs. Kristen throws her 2 cents in, when Aviva responds, Kristens covers her ears and gives us la la la la la – I think she really missed out by not being cast on 90210 or some current teen show. LuAnn does not doubt that Aviva has asthma. Carole can’t believe Lu believes her. Sonja wants to know if Aviva can travel to Dubai. She knows royalty there who can get them into the best places. Smirks from the petty couch.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-york-season-6-reunion-preview (1)

Ramona is asking for water and a straw in the interstitial. Aviva wants wine. From these scenes, the HW’s seem to be a demanding hot mess between question and answer sessions.

Last segment. We start with Sonja being Sonja. Her highs and lows – including the numerous Sonja businesses are presented in flashbacks. As Sonja is talking about her life from age 14 on, LuAnn and Carole are privately “debunking” Sonja’s story with the things they’d heard about her. Heather and Kristen are giving each other “the look.” Sonja talks about how hard it was to move from being a private person to putting so much of her life out there on the show. Sonja notices LuAnn and Carole laughing as she’s talking. LuAnn is whispering to Carole that Sonja is “bipolar” as they laugh. Sonja talks about the 40 plus people she employs. The petty couch tells her, they’ve only seen her interns – her attorneys, trustee lawyer, etc, are not staff. The pile-on keeps going with Andy getting in on the act.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-york-season-6-reunion-preview (1)

Viewer Q: Sonja is asked why she has lavish parties when there is no hot water, which is cruel to the interns who live with her. We learn that the issue is not about the cost of heating the water. The pipes in her 1890’s home are not safe for dispensing hot water. Apparently, it was filling the fixtures with sediment when the hot water was turned on. The pipes need to be replaced and the parties were comp’d.

When asked what Sonja thinks of Josh’s advice. Sonja is not fond of Josh, apparently. She claims she doesn’t need his advice, she’s paid tens of thousands of dollars to give her advice about branding.  The petty couch, almost in unison, wants to know who would pay her. Sonja says to Kristen that Josh works for P. Diddy, P Diddy comes on her yacht, to which LuAnn and the crew reminds her that she doesn’t have a yacht, any more. Kristen reminds Sonja her husband has his own company now – Sonja snaps back saying she has yet to see Josh’s product in a store. Kristen says it’s everywhere. Sonja was hurt that Kristen joked with Josh about her being delusional, behind her back, when she was so kind to KristenKristen compliments her and tells her that she could sell any ONE thing she puts her name on, but that she is delusional. We see Kristen stand up and sing DELUSIONAL to Sonja. She wants Sonja to know that she’s saying it to her face.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-york-season-6-reunion-preview (1)

Andy brings up the “grey gardens” attack used against Sonja. She doesn’t mind because she found the women charming, sweet, etc…LuAnn adds that they were also mentally ill.

We end with Andy stating that Sonja has changed since the first season she was on. LuAnn claims she was sucked in by the show. LuAnn claims that Sonja ignored her when she disappeared from season five and heard from her again for season six. LuAnn snaps on Sonja. While Sonja and Ramona claim that Luann is jealous, LuAnn claims that Sonja is jealous of her. More fighting. My God, will this ever end?!?!?!  HECK YES!  I’m in luck, it’s over. Can someone ask my editor if I have to come back for part II or if I can play hooky?

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. ♦ Norrth Cafe's BlogTwitterFacebook

    My first thought? I don’t usually defend Ramona, but I thought Andy Cohen’s questions about her marriage were wrong. Her husband’s infidelity was never a part of the storyline this season, so why ask her about it? Anything that’s brought up on the air is fair game, sure, but in this case, I think that Mr. Cohen asking about it was wrong. And Luanne’s response about ‘karma being a bitch” was a pretty bitchy thing for her to say. SHE cheated on her boyfriend last season, and it was a huge part of the storyline. I’m sorry. Her “little-miss goody-two-shoes” act this season really got on my nerves. Whew! That’s all folks!!! LOL!

    Hope everyone is well today…..:-)

    • Birdie11

      I have always had a soft spot for ol Ramona…she makes the show IMO…even if she has stepped on toes herself, she has every right to shut that down…whether people like it or not. Andy is drooling at what this could bring to this reunion, I’m glad Ramona is fighting to shut his princess mouth.

      • nan/4

        Me too Birdie! And I agree with your first post too! Right on, baby!!!! LOL I hope that you have a great day today my friend! 😉

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I’m sorry I disagree! LuAnn only made that comment because last season Ramona brought up her “perceived” affair at the reunion. LuAnn said Ramona’s allegations helped break up her and Jacques. If Ramona can dish it, she should be able to take it.

    • Chloe

      I get your point but I think after past seasons of Ramona exposing others, it’s her turn in the hot seat.

    • I agree! The affair was not featured, therefore, it shouldn’t have been mentioned. Andy Cohen takes pleasure in hurting women so it was right up his crooked alley. And I also agree, LuAnn’s FAKE alliance to Heather and Carole was nauseating. I especially hated how she turned her back on Aviva just to be “liked” by the Crypt Keeper oops… I mean Carole.

    • Reality LuLu

      I disagree. It was Moaners “reality” and she never ever had a problem throwing out other peoples (alleged) affairs/marriage problems that weren’t shown.

      • nan/4

        Hi Lulu. Nice to meet you. I know she throws up a lot of crap, but isn’t it usually something that was a part of the storyline? I could be wrong, but personally speaking, I still don’t feel that if it was not part of the included subject matter during the season that it should be brought up at the reunion. But I certainly respect your opinion as well.

        Take care Lulu! 🙂

        • Reality LuLu

          See that is just one of the many things I love about this particular site. We can all agree to disagree without getting nasty and having the editor come and scold us like another popular site we know!! LOL

          • Reality LuLu

            OH and it’s nice to know you too Nan.

  • Birdie11

    Sonya is a broken down wreck who needs help…how can anyone have so much going on when she can’t even define what those things are? Who in the world would want lifestyle counseling from a washed up, delusional floozy? Ramona just sits there in her pinot soaked haze, going along with it even though she knows Sonya is a hot mess. Everyone should get off Aviva’s back about her lech father and point their fingers at Andy…who chose to put a sexual deviant harasser on a show about women. Kristen is beyond annoying…and her boobs don’t look any different. Ramona apologized over and over about throwing the glass…said it was wrong…blah, blah, blah…I wish she would throw something else at her during part 2 of the reunion.

    • Marsbars09

      Oh birdie! Don’t encourage violence amongst the women. They are broken enough as it is.
      How are you today?

      • Birdie11

        *hangs head*…aren’t there pillows on that couch??

        • Marsbars09

          LOL! Don’t worry, birdie. Those nut bags will go on being as they are.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I love that while Sonja has been busy creating her imaginary empire with dozens of employees and skin cream, wine in a can, French shirts, and perfume for sports teams, LuAnn quietly created a clothing line and got ‘er done. LuAnn looked great and went for broke last night, and I don’t blame her – Ramonja have really taken their shots at her over time.

      • Reality LuLu

        I just had a funny thought. I can see Sonja talking on a telephone at her house that isn’t even hooked up trying to conduct “business”.

    • Chloe

      Kristen is trying too hard to be relevant and her new boobs just make her seem even more superficial. Her husband may be accomplished in some circles but he is no genius. His company probably succeeds not because of any superior marketing or branding ability he has but because of his incessant workaholism. Carole needs to stop bragging about how good she looks for her age and what a “great ass” she has. The bleached blonde hair and 80’s bandage dress did her no favors.

      • Birdie11

        Since when is Josh Mr. Wonderful? Puh-leeze. Carole was trying way too hard to look hip…which always backfires.

    • TopGear

      Sonja lives in a cloud. In her delusions of grandeur. When it all comes crashing down, I can see her suffering from a nervous breakdown.

      • twifan2

        Sad, but so true. 🙁

      • Reality LuLu

        Sadly even if Sonja had a breakdown, she would pull a Kelly Bensimon and state it was a break through & then talk about all of her businesses and 45+ employees.

    • Hey Birdie! 🙂

      BOOM! Kristen is one of the most childish and emotionally insecure woman in the hw’s franchise I’ve encountered in awhile. Her whispering, smirking and DELUSIONAL! Oh Please….have a seat airhead. Her personality takes away from her outward beauty. So much so that I find her unattractive.

  • TopGear

    I love your recaps Norrth Cafe.

    Did I hear correctly, when Sonja was talking about her many employees, did she mention a judge? Could she be referring to the judge presiding over her bankruptcy case? If she was, the others correctly pointed out, those people are not your employees.

    While Josh’s business e-boost is certainly more real than any of Sonja’s enterprises, it was a little odd when Sonja said she’s never seen e-boost in a store, and they all jumped on her to say its real, and Heather chimed in with something like “go to LaGuardia airport, its all over the place.” Yes, e-boost is more real than Sonja Industries, but this is New York City. If you have a real product that competes with five hour energy, I shouldn’t have to go to the airport to find it. How about Duane Reade? How about CVS? How about the Pakistani guy on the corner selling the newspaper?

    • Marsbars09

      The Pakistani guy?

      • TopGear

        ???

      • twifan2

        Most or a good majority of the newspaper stands in NYC are run/owned by Pakistani men now.

    • WestCoastFeed

      That was my thought, too. When she said judge I thought bankruptcy judge.

      • TopGear

        That’s the only judge I could think of.

  • RealitytvJunkie

    There is no comparison between Sonja and LuAnn. LuAnn seems at peace with the divorce and herself. She was pleasantly different this year. Sonja on the other hand, is desperately clinging to the ghost of that Morgan skeleton that she successfully, but fleetingly gold dug.

    • Marsbars09

      I have a feeling Sonja is going to end up like Norma Desmond from the movie Sunset Boulevard.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        Yes! Watching her this season was pitiful.

      • nan/4

        LOL!!!!! You’re probably right Marsie!!!!! 😮

  • Marsbars09

    I must say, that’s quite a group of women Bravo has assembled for New York.
    Sonja is so delusional it’s scary. I don’t believe most of the stuff she said about her business acumen and wealth. I’m glad the other ladies called her on it.
    And what’s up with Ramona not wanting to talk about her marital problems?! She’s been on that show for 7 years, she knows what’s expected of her.
    Can’t wait for part 2!

    • nan/4

      I don’t know Marsie. It was never brought up this season, so I would think that it would be off-limits?? Jmo though….

      Be well, honey! 🙂

      • Marsbars09

        Great point, but you know inquiring minds want to know! 🙂
        I hope you’re doing well yourself.

        • nan/4

          Thanks. 🙂

    • Birdie11

      Honestly, I wish she would just say that she and Avery have been terribly hurt by all that’s happened, and she would appreciate privacy so she can continue to work on restoring their family…and be done with it. I just see she and Avery as victims…and Mario has barely been on the show this season. Now if she had cheated…that would be another story. Hope your Wednesday is fun Marsie!

      • Marsbars09

        You’re right, birdie. That would have been a great retort for Ramona to state.

    • Hi Marsie. Well said.

  • nan/4

    Who do you think looked the nicest? My vote goes to Ramona. I think that she looked very pretty, but Carole? Umm…..no. She’s trying too hard.

    • Birdie11

      I love this question! I lean towards Ramona…but I think her dress was a little big for her…tailoring looked weird, however her hair looked fab. Sonya looked like the broken down mess that she is, her dress, and her clown makeup were appropriate. I would have liked Aviva’s look…but it was all too one color for me from head to toe. No one really hit it out of the park IMO.

      • nan/4

        Yes. I agree. It looked too big on the top, but other than that, she looked great. For women with money, they could have done better, for sure!

        Oh, I’m glad that YOU thought it was a good question! hahaha;-)

        • Birdie11

          OMG…it’s my favorite question LOL!! I also wasn’t aware that NYC is the sequin capitol of America!

          • twifan2

            They need to get a hold of Betty White & her BeDazzler! 🙂

          • Birdie11

            I think she was backstage in wardrobe!

          • nan/4

            LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re starting again with me Twi! SO FUNNY!!!!! 🙂

          • twifan2

            Hi Hi Nan! 🙂
            Were you bedazzled? ;D

          • nan/4

            I am constantly in a state of bedazzledment :-/ Twi. How are ya’ toots?

          • twifan2

            I’m sparkly good today, Nan! 😉
            Having a good Hump Day today so far, Nan?

          • nan/4

            That’s so sparkly and nice, Twi. So far so good, thanks! I’ll keep you updated if there are any changes though…….hehe

          • twifan2

            🙂

          • nan/4

            HA! It’s a close second to where i live, Vegas. But they are circus performers and showgirls!!!!

      • Reality LuLu

        Sonja’s gown looked like a night gown.

    • Hi Nan! I thought LuAnn, Sonja and Ramona looked beautiful. Ramona looks amazing for her age. I don’t like judging looks but Carole looks so old and unattractive in my opinion.

      • Birdie11

        Suessie!! SONYA??

        • nan/4

          She looked better than Heather, IMO. She needs a stylelist!!!!

          • Birdie11

            Her hair looked nice…but I hated that dress, her makeup was gaudy and she wasn’t wearing a bra.

          • nan/4

            Who? Heather or Sonja? I didn’t like Heather’s dress at all.

          • Birdie11

            Sonya…I sort of liked Heather’s dress…but definitely not on her…maybe on someone petite, with better accessories.

          • Heather’s body…YIKES!

          • nan/4

            Dr. Dubrow could take care of her boobs too! Oh, I’m being so mean! I’ll stop. 😮

          • twifan2

            LOL 😀
            Why stop, Nan? 🙂

          • nan/4

            Well, ’cause I have no room to talk? I would need a total overhaul!!!!! I’m trippin’ over my boobs here Twi!!!!

          • twifan2

            Yes, but I bet you don’t try to be something you’re not, like these ‘ladies’ do. 🙂

          • nan/4

            You’re right! I just keep on tripping over them, and will continue to do so!!!!! SO THERE!!!!! lol

          • Heather is face and body challenged. But at least she’s smart. Poor thang.

          • nan/4

            I KNOW!!!!! She would look much better if Dr. Nassif got a hold of her nose though!

          • WestCoastFeed

            She is also personality challenged.

        • She’s a pretty floozy. She still looks good for her age. She looks 10x better than the Crypt Keeper.

          • Birdie11

            Ok, yes I do agree with that. I was worried we were gna have to break up! lolol

          • Hee hee hee! 🙂

            Never sweet Birdie.

          • Reality LuLu

            LOL at “a pretty floozy”. That is the perfect description for Sonja.

  • Chloe

    Thanks for a great recap Norrth!

    The seating was very obvious and calculated. If the seating arrangement would have been different, some very entertaining things could have occured. I would have like to have seen Carole next to Aviva, Luanne next to Sonja, Kristen next to Ramona, etc. and see how they would have directed their comments to each other in that situation.

    • nan/4

      Yup! It sure would have been fun!!! Safe? Probably not. There was some real hatred flying back and forth there Chloe!!!!

      Nice to see you today! 😉

      • LOLOL!! They would need security for sure.

    • TopGear

      This is brilliant. Viewers would have been actually entertained.

    • Birdie11

      They’re half trying to avoid another Atlanta smackdown.

  • twifan2

    Thank you Norrth for this awesome recap!
    Saves me the trouble of watching it. 🙂

  • WestCoastFeed

    I’m just and occasional NY viewer, but I wondered if the seating arrangement indicated that the 3 who will definitely signed for a new season, Ramona, Sonja and Aviva were seated together.

    • Birdie11

      They generally seat them with who they are allied with…like teams. Very immature high school..very Bravo.

      • WestCoastFeed

        If Teresa’s table toss earned her a permanent job on NJ, did Aviva’s leg toss do the same for her on NY?

        • Birdie11

          Well if that didn’t save her, nothing will!

    • nan/4

      Which side do you think will be resigned WCF?

      • WestCoastFeed

        Aviva and her leg toss should be a shoo-in. Ramona & Sonja for sure as the old-timers. I’d bring back LuAnn as a full-fledged housewife. And drop Kristen for a season of “trying too hard.”

        • nan/4

          Hmm…I think that because of her leg, Aviva is limited. What would she have been able to do in Montana? That was a pretty physical trip. If they keep doing things like that, Aviva won’t be able to participate, so I’m not sure about her. Carole and Luanne just get on my nerves. Kristen too. She added nothing. But the dynamic duo of Ramona and Sonja will return for sure.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Heather was very rude to Aviva last night. Is she always that abrasive?

          • nan/4

            Always…..it’s her New York “thing.”

          • WestCoastFeed

            I suppose that secures her a permanent spot.

          • nan/4

            I think they like her at Bravo, yes. That’s just a feeling I get.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Anything to keep the arguments going.

          • nan/4

            That’s the “Bravo Way” indeed!

            I think Heather thinks she is always “keeping it real” yet she and Kristen came up with that seemingly concocted story of why Kristen went after Heather. Kristen wasn’t shy tearing into the other ladies on the trip. She was seemed truly annoyed with Heather’s know-it-all-attitude.

          I think that her leg toss won her some major points but her inability to ever travel with the group for one reason or another without her husband deducts quite a few. I don’t really watch regularly but I don’t think she has ever made a girl’s trip except once when she brought her husband.

        • Reality LuLu

          I think the leg toss was too little too late. I would be surprised if Bravo offered Aviva a contract to come back.

      Not really teams just people who get along. Sometimes it is people who are together but they usually have your enemy sitting across from another. Like Porsha and Kenya were on the same couch which was stupid but just a example.

      • Hi Izzy J,

        That makes sense. With that seating arrangement, opponents can face off better.

      • Jennymckitty

        Hey izzy, I’ve missed you so much. I suppose in Kenya’s case, they were having a difficult time finding enough people who actually got along with Kenya to fill a couch. They could have just hung Kenya from the ceiling like a giant piñata but that would have made it too easy for Porsha.

          Jenny, I don’t think this is same Izzy we all know.

          • Jennymckitty

            Oh, thanks. Sorry.

          • twifan2

            This Jenny is probably wondering ‘I’ve missed you’ ??? Who the heck is this! 😀

          • Jennymckitty

            Probably looking at me like I’m some creepy stalker.

          • twifan2

            😀
            No worries, Jenny. I’ve done that to other posters thinking they were someone I knew. It happens. It’s the net. 🙂

        • Reality LuLu

          LOL I would love to see Kenya hanging from the ceiling like a piñata.

          • twifan2

            I want to give the first whack! 🙂

          • Reality LuLu

            Hey Twi you may have first whack. I was in a car accident last Friday so my shoulder isn’t strong enough to whack a doodle yet. LOL

          • twifan2

            Thank you! I’ll hit her hard for you! 🙂

            Sorry to hear about your accident. 🙁
            But glad it wasn’t MORE serious!

          • Reality LuLu

            Thank you on both accounts. LOL

        • Izzy J

          HAHA! I think Kandi should have been in Porsha’s seat. Seating at reunions are IMPORTANT!

    • Reality LuLu

      Hi WCF. I don’t think so. It’s super early and contracts typically aren’t offered until months after a season ends.

  • nan/4

    Maybe it’s just me, but after a while, there was so much venom being spewed from the left side of the couch, I started rooting for the right side. Like I said…..it’s probably just me.

    • nan/4

      Well, it just me and you Norrth!!!! LOL! 😉

  • murlut

    Aviva and Sonja are DELUSIONAL. Ramona has just become an old hag. Those three really think they are special. Ramona throwing the glass was BATTERY. Sonja has not a pot to pee in or a window to throw it out of and Aviva is down right ignorant and mean. Aviva lies and when she gets caught she makes up another. I guess people in Montana do not have Asthma right? I am sorry but if my dad was dating someone 50 yrs his junior and acting like an azz, I would commit him not congratulate him

    OT: Did you see that “The Real Housewives of Melbourne” will be airing Sundays at noon? That looks good! Anyone know anything about this show?

    • twifan2

      I do! Saw all of season 1 already. Season 2 won’t stat til next year. 🙁
      It’s GOOD! These women are their own persons. SNARKY!
      At noon? DANG! Have to set dvr!

      • nan/4

        Great! Thanks Twi. I’ll have to look for it now! 🙂

      • twifan2

        OH & Nan!
        There are supposedly 3 women who MIGHT be added to the original 6 (?) members. Gina may not return. 🙁
        One of them is a jewelry designer. Her stuff is GORGEOUS! Another one has a housewares line in Target stores. The third has a VERY colorful past! 🙂

        • nan/4

          Oh wow. I’m watching it now! It’s really good Twi! Thanks again…..:-)

          • twifan2

            Glad you like, so far!
            You’ll have to tell me who you like best. 😉

  • italiano bambino

    Kristen boobs from her husband was a STFU already gift

    • twifan2

      He should have taken her to Drs Paul & Terry from Botched!
      They could put a boobie in her mouth. ;D

  • italiano bambino

    Luman glad she’s friend of the wives brought nothing to the show.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Carole tried to be clever in one of her blogs and paraphrased Jane Austen. That is blasphemy and in my mind she belongs in a special circle of hell.

    • twifan2

      Carole needs to be the Juicys’ next door neighbor here on earth! 😀

  • Raine Woman

    Another great recap, Norrth, thanks!

    I thought this was one of the better reunions. I’m more ‘left’ couch than ‘right’ couch so that’s all I’ll say. 🙂

    • Hi Raine Lady! Hope you’re having a good day.

      • Raine Woman

        Hey Doc! How are you? I was having a great day until I read your NY comments. j/k 🙂

        • LMFAOO! You soooo funny! 🙂

          You got me on that one. Trust and believe many out there get VERY angry over a difference of opinion.

  • Reality LuLu

    Oh *Sigh*. I am appalled with Ramona acting like throwing ANYTHING at another person is not a big deal. It wasn’t an accident. It was intentional. I’m further appalled with her explanation about why she calls Luann “Lu Man”. She acts like she never does anything wrong! I had to laugh when she kept using the word “allegedly” about Mario’s affair. Part 2 should be good because Luann was right. In the past, Ramona had no problem talking about “alleged” affairs or open marriages. She doesn’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot.

    As for Sonja, she truly is, in my opinion living not only in the past but a fantasy land. She needs to produce checks from people that pay her “tens of thousands of dollars” for HER branding advice. So she gets a ton of emails from people that want to slap her name on a product and just because she is asked, she calls it one of her businesses. 45 employees? I can’t wait to tell my own accountant the because I pay him, he is my employee. *Eye Roll*
