I watched RHOM last night but didn’t take any notes or start a blog. I know some of you are asking where to talk about it so I will put up a brief recap here. Basically what happened was Lea Black threw a party at her newly renovated mansion. Say what you will about Lea, but she is one of the few housewives that is actually wealthy. Actually most all of the RHOM except for Joanna and Adrianna are wealthy. Yet another reason I wish more people were watching this show. I digress.
Lea is expanding her empire into a “movement” or something. So she has not one but two events to hawk her wares. The first was at some sort of storefront. Media was there to interview Lea about her new handbags. It was a big deal. It was as the housewives like to say, “Lea’s Special Day” which of course means someone will sabotage it. This season, that means Lisa will do something stupid. First she drags Lea away from her guests to implore her to drop her wall and make up with Adriana. WTF? Lea is WORKING. It’s not the time, or the place, or any of Lisa’s concern. Just like when she interfered with Marysol’s confrontation with Lea. Lea manages to wiggle free and goes back to work.
Then somehow Lisa and Joanna got into it. Joanna is all stressy planning her wedding. When Lisa starts talking about being the peacemaker, Joanna loses it and the two have a knock down drag out fight. Joanna kicks Joanna out of her wedding and tries to kick her out of the event. Eventually Lisa storms off.
Because Lea Black is Lea Black she has two special days. Lea invites ALL the ladies to her house to see the unveiling of her newly renovated house. It is stunning. So much so that two tentative truces were called. Joanna and Lisa talked and half-assed apologies were given. Lisa is back in the wedding. They love and adore each other. Essentially the same thing happened with Lea and Adrianna who agreed to disagree on whether Adrianna was a liar who used Lea for her money and MOVE ON. The RHOM are all better than the other franchises at crying on cue.
And they all lived happily ever after. I believe we will have a Vegas wedding for Joanna. Or at least a Vegas bachelorette party. Oh Joy. What did y’all think?
