YAY for Miami! I wish more people watched this show it is one of my favorites! Lea, Lisa and Joanna are off to LA. They show the MIA airport and I immediately have PTSD Flashbacks. /shudder Lea has had her engagement diamond reset on a very high prong band. Of course I pause the screen to gawk at it and make my novice appraisal. It seems to have a visible flaw on my HD TV and is definitely not colorless. I don’t mean to imply that I would not kill all the babies in a remote village for it. I’m just taking a very close look. She is also wearing a diamond band with diamonds all the way around and while it is a hard call on TV they seem to be a full carat per stone. She also has on a tiny very delicate chain bracelet with a chain that goes down and encircles her middle finger.
Once onboard, the ladies appear to be flying business class.Surely, I am mistaken and they are in first. I guess it is first, it’s just a huge plane. I just spent way too long trying to figure out the aircraft. Sorry, jewelry and travel get me very distracted and this franchise has tons of both. EDIT: It was a 777 and they were in the bulkhead seats of business. I know I am the only one who cares about these things. I notice everything about traveling.
Meanwhile, back in MIA, Alexia is running the Venue cover shoot. Peter is wandering around shooting behind the scenes photos. Alexia is trying to keep him close and out of trouble. Alexia says she is guilty of giving the boys too many material things. At a photo shoot on the street a taxi driver blocks the shoot and flips off Alexia when they tell him to move on. Peter goes after the taxi and either kicks it or punches it (not exactly shown and stories vary) so the taxi driver calls the cops on Peter. Peter runs off and leaves Alexia to handle it. Which she does. And the taxi driver moves on after the cop explains he has better things to do. Alexia is very worried about Peter’s anger issues.
Alexia talked to her mother about Peter’s issues. Her mother is a psychiatrist. Alexia says she is worried about Peter’s judgment. The three go outside and Peter says he found out a lot of stuff about his birth father that he did not know from a blogger who called him for an interview. Alexia says a lot of that stuff was untrue but some of it was. Peter’s father was in prison from his birth until about age five. No one ever told him why his father was not around. Peter was mad that Alexia kept the information from him. Peter overly identifies with his criminal father and is angry at his mother. Alexia’s mom tells him she wants to counsel him confidentially. Though confidentially on this show generally means on camera “therapy.”
Joanna’s LA house is lovely. Lea has to point out that hers is smaller but in Hollywood Hills while Joanna’s is “over the hill.” None of these women can pack. Joanna and Lisa sit outside with Joanna’s mom and drink cheap wine and talk about sex.
Lea and Lisa go to Joanna’s wedding site which is a hotel with lovely views. But she wants to have the wedding by the pool? On top of the pool? I am not impressed. Perhaps it will be beautiful once it is all gussied up. Generally, I would vote against the wedding party, particularly the bride and groom walking on a runway over any body of water. Joanna says that Lisa has to choose who to be a bridesmaid for, she must pick one or the other. Adrianna has said essentially the same thing, but I think she may already have a dress for Adrianna’s wedding.
Meanwhile in Miami Adriana and Frederic are at their wedding location. Frederic is in a seer sucker suit. I LOVE a man in a seer sucker suit. I’ve never seen a non Southern man wear one though! Adriana is expecting all of her attendees to change outfits in the middle of the wedding to meet her Great Gatsby theme expectations. Her son, the smartest person in the room says that everyone will have to change in their cars. The property event planner says they can open the executive suite on the 15th floor for a changing room. If that don’t beat all…
Lea’s house in the hills is drop dead gorgeous. Very modern. All black and white. Lisa and Lea hang out there while Joanna goes dress shopping for wedding dresses. Lea and Lisa go shopping for Birkin bags. Apparently you have to be a preferred customer to buy one. Lea is a preferred customer so she is going to vouch for Lisa. Or some such.
Out at a girls dinner in LA with Joanna’s LA friends there is a lot of conversation about IVF. Lisa is feeling very uncomfortable. Lisa is unhappy about Joanna’s ultimatum regarding being a bridesmaid. Lisa tries to use Joe Francis as an example of someone Lea likes that everyone else thinks is scum.
