I have high expectations for this show. Let’s see what kind of mood Andy is in. I hope he stops saying that Alex is a therapist. He was the instigator of that rumor. She’s just working on a new degree in Australia.
Ramona is lit. I mean in the old school way, not the way kids today use it. Andy starts to talk to her about the horrid things she said to Bethenny regarding Bryn. Somehow this brings back some season one reunion nonsense when it came out that Alex had so nude photos surface. Ramona walked off the stage because she didn’t want to be associated with it. Bethenny chimed in to say she doesn’t either. I’d forgotten just how mean these women were to Alex and Simon. Ramona continues to grab Alex’s hand and put it in her lap. It’s creepy. Ramona says that her kids were shown nude photos at school by her peers of “the woman she is on the show with.” While Ramona clutches Alex’s hand in he lap, Alex is completely not buying this after the fact justification for the things that she said to Bethenny. Ramona then discards her hand, was a hand in Alex’s direction and says, ” Then you don’t know me that well. You haven’t seen me in 8 years, so just forget it.
Alex gets a lot of rapid fire questions. She and Jill are great pen pals. He boys don’t have Australian accents. She doesn’t watch any housewives. Simon is in law school. Her biggest regret of being on the show is her lack of privacy. She says no one knows who she is in Australia so that’s great.
A caller asks for things that happened on Scary Island that could not be filmed. Ramona says she promised not to talk about it. It almost sounded like Kelly had sent a cease and desist. She then pulled a Porsha and told Alex to spill it all. Alex just says that Kelly has a low threshold for anxiety and she just couldn’t cope that night.
Ramona is asked to list all the things she’s done to her face since last season. She denies doing anything and says she has gained ten pounds.
Ramona is asked if she really likes Dorinda’s beau John now or if she is just faking it to get along with Dorinda. Ramona says she never fakes anything she just is who she is and she enjoys John’s company now.
Both were asked how Bethenny has changed since they first met her. Alex says she hasn’t changed a bit. Ramona laughs and pleads the fifth.
Ramona swears that Carole disinvited her from her party because of Bethenny. When Andy says that was not what we saw on TV, Ramona explains how reality shows are edited to Andy Cohen. I do think that Bethenny was a large part of why she wasn’t invited though. Bethenny would not have come to the party if Ramona was there. She really didn’t want to come at all.
They play a game where Ramona needs to be blindfolded. When anyone else plays such a game the wear a wonky Ramona eyes blindfold. This time she is wearing blackout sunglasses. I wonder why? Like, I seriously wonder why? Did she refuse to wear them before the show? Did Andy decide it was too mean? (unlikely). It’s weird to me and I need this explained. Anyway the game bombed because they were giving clues to Ramona about men on the show and she can’t remember any names. At all. The game should have been called MENopause instead of monuMENtal.
In honor of Ramona’s 60th birthday, she gets the Mazel of the day and a montage of ridiculous behavior, including the crazy eyes on the runway. Now I am more confused.
This show had SO MUCH potential. Unfortunately all of the questions were softballs. Also Alex has no idea what is going on with the housewives and only watched the last two episodes since she landed in the US and has missed all the seasons since she left, and Ramona was just in one of her dithers.
