The Real Housewives of New York City – The “Cool Girls”

The girls’ trip to London is getting bigger and more important than Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee celebration – well, maybe not to the rest of us – just to those who were invited, or not.   Ramona wants everyone to know how inclusive she is by inviting the gals to an event at which Ramona is being honored.  I guess that’s the same as going on a trip to Europe but apparently Heather and Ramona don’t see eye to eye on this.   The Yummy Tummy queen hasn’t figured out that Ramona doesn’t let anything go of anything, especially when she feels she’s being slighted.  Ramona hasn’t figured out that she’s done the same to others, but perhaps that was different.

Before meeting up with the other ladies, Ramona meets Carole for lunch, and to get some advice as to handle the dis-invitation.  After watching and listening to Ramona chatter in a way that only she can, Carole figures it’s a good time to change the subject.  Ramona doesn’t take advice well, even when she’s asking someone for it.  Don’t get me wrong, I really like Ramona, but she could mix her Pinot with some Ritalin.  It might help her focus on something other than herself.   She did stop prattling on long enough to catch the fact that Carole is a Princess, even doing a curtsy to honor her luncheon companion.  Ramona also enjoyed the idea that LuAnn was outranked by the new girl, going as far as to say that at least Carole’s husband didn’t have to buy his title.  I think we all share Ramona’s evil delight over that one, even more than we care to admit.

Carole did some research for her book during this episode – meaning she went on a date.  The gentleman, some odd sort of fellow named Peyman, wasn’t Carole’s type at all, but he did manage to get her to say “pussy”.  I think that should give her material for at least one of her chapters.  During a Heather-planned shopping trip – one which Ramona was invited to – Carole got the news that her book was going to be picked up for a television series.  Sharing that with the group meant hearing from Ramona that her wine was now available at all Target stores – but no one’s competing here, right?  Ramona says she loves to support other women, as soon as they support and congratulate her on all of the new wine displays at our local department stores.   Then again, Ramona did make it clear that everything is “Heather, Heather, Heather”.  It’s easy to get confused by Ramona.  Maybe I need Ritalin.

The shopping trip was also the scene of a tête-à-tête between Heather and Ramona.  It had something to do with the whole who-talks-more debate and Aviva was called in as an expert witness.  Ramona cross-examined Aviva until she finally blurted out that yes, she had commented on Heather’s excessive talking.  Now, Heather thinks that Aviva just got a taste of Ramona.   I think Heather just got a taste of Aviva.   This is the Housewives, Heather – just remember – loose lips and sinking ships.

LuAnn is still trying to have a baby – well, that’s her story and she’s sticking to it.  What else does she have?  She’s 47 years old. She’s having lots of sex. She’s been taking pre-natal vitamins for two years and nothing’s happened yet.  She’s having acupuncture because she and Jacques want to do this holistically.  They don’t want to try IVF or egg implantation so I guess my dragons are still safe.  It just could be that acupuncture isn’t a bad idea after all.  We’re talking LuAnn, here – what harm can a few more pricks do?

As always, enjoy reading:

    “I think we all share Ramona’s evil delight over that one, even more than we care to admit.”
    I’ll freely and happily admit it 😀

  2. Your recap was much more entertaining than the episode! Love Carole, bored with the Ramona & Sinus, so tired of Luann, Scuba is campaigning for homecoming queen, and Pleather is a lil JZ.

    LOL, Wouldn’t it just be daaahling if later we find out that Jacques has already undergone a vasectomy and the acupuncture (just a few more pricks-love that one!) is just to help her quit smoking or something like that??

      I know you’re relieved to know that your dragon eggs are safe and can remain in your possession. I know I would be! Empress, you have 3 more votes for your blog being better than the show! My vote, Hubs vote and Mr. Tigre gave us his proxy!

    • That would be an interesting turn of events, and much more pleasant than finding out that the infertility issue is on Jacques’ end. I don’t think I’d want to see what sort of treatments he would have to undergo – holistically.

    Hurrah! Now I don’t need to suffer through watching the episode.
    The idea of the Heather + Ramona tension and anything involving LuAnn makes me feel like I have morning sickness.
    LuAnn preggers .. remember that episode of Sex and the City where Mitzy whatshername middle aged married to a gay guy becomes pregnant? That would be funny to watch. LuAnn in her tent dress with swollen ankles.
    Let’s all hope Victoria doesn’t get pregnant at the same time.

    Ritalin. My brother was on ritalin. It is speed. The doctors found if you sped up the body it balanced with the natural overdrive the kids were in. That would work with Ramona.

    Thanks for the funnies!!

    Hi Empress, this was a great read. I am enjoying Carol’s blogs also. Like you, she has a great writing style & like your blogs I find I read them more than once. I got a kick out of Ramona & enjoyed her moment of glee with the countess/princess info. Out of all the HW’s Carol is the only one I could hang out with. I do not relate to Heather, I do appreciate her bringing awareness to organ donation. LuMann is driving my DD nuts. She told me that her reaction would be quite different from Victoria’s. Since my last birthday,47, everytime I mention I’m hot DD starts singing Oh The Changes They Are Coming & cracks herself up. I delight in making her cringe telling her my doc says I could get knocked up tomorrow if I wanted so it’s going to be a few years until I am sure I am done having kids. Then I crack myself up. Have a great day, Lisa 🙂

    Peyman has been convicted of domestic abuse against his ex-GF. He should not be on bravo!

    • Just a couple of questions.
      1. Do you have anything to support your information?
      2. Given the backgrounds of a number of Bravolebrities, how would this make him any different?
