This entire episode will probably be all fluff leading up to the big finale. It looks like we are going to start with a Bethenny promo. There is nary a bottle of Skinnygirl in sight, but that doesn’t stop her from promoting her new show with Fredrik. I will be watching. She is basically talking about the problems she is having with renovating her new house. Bethenny and Carole are a bit shocked that the Mexico trip went so well.
Luann and Tom play some tennis. This is so sad. They can’t even agree on their tennis score. Luann taught Tom how to play tennis and now he has surpassed her level. I can barely stand to watch this scene.
It’s time to suspend all your disbelief and pretend that Sonia and Frenchie are a thing. Ramona wants to move into Sonja’s so she will find a man next. That would be just too much to handle. She also tells Sonja that Tinsley wants to throw a thank you party for Sonja. Oh, side note, Sonja was on snapchat today doing some sort of interview for….wait for it… Page Six. Two guesses about who that interview will be about. Sonja claims she is going to Burgundy to meet Frenchie’s parents and stay at his hotel for ten days. I’ve seen no evidence of that.
Bethenny has a new boyfriend. He is a toothless hockey player. Bethenny’s apartment is HUGE. She is living like a boss.
Tinsley is living like Eloise, the little girl who lived at the Plaza hotel. Carole stops by to see Tinsley and regifts a candle from Dorinda to her for her new “home.” Carole and Tinsley discuss the Thank You/Fuck You party for Sonja.
Moving forward with the odd gifts theme, John gives Dorinda a replica of a Beyonce gown made by the same designer that made Beyonce’s that looks like a wedding gown. Dorinda wonders if that is supposed to be a push down the aisle. I kept hearing about this season that John and Dorinda got engaged. There were lots of little jokey comments on that topic all season, but thus far no proposal. Dorinda says if she ever marries John it will be a quickie ceremony at the courthouse followed by grabbing a bite to eat at an Armenian diner.
Carol and Adam walked the dog and let us know they are still together, but not together.
Scott is in town for the finale party. He chats on the phone with Tinsley while she is getting hair and makeup. The call ends with “Love yous” on both sides. They are totally getting married next season.
Sonja doesn’t want to go to the party because she thinks it is a “fuck you” party. Meanwhile Tinsley is setting up a beautiful party full of hot young guys in tight “ThanK You, Sonja” t-shirts. There is a beautiful cake and it’s a gorgeous setting. Dorinda’s boyfriend John and Tinsley’s boyfriend Scott are there. Dorinda says they need to do a wedding every year and they are not quite ready so Scott and Tinsley are next. Scott seems a bit unnerved by that, but it would not surprise me at all if they get married or at least engaged next season.
Ramona brings two random people to the party, and then tells Tinsley and the girls that Sonja is in bed (supposedly with Frenchie) and she is not coming because it is a fuck you party.
Luann and Tom arrive and it’s sad again. Bethenny comes to the party with an attitude and Ramona is will be getting the brunt of that. I’m just fine with that. Especially because just moments after I typed that it was clear that once again, Ramona had invited Missy to the party. This reminds me of Ramona’s tweet to Luann about the divorce that read, “I’m so sad for you.” Ramona has no clue how to feel empathy. It’s beyond horrific.
Sonja arrives at the party and head straight for the hired studs. Apparently, she is quite familiar with them. Sonja is pissed because Carole told her that her party was a fuck you party. Sonja complains about the crappy drinks. Things between Sonja and Tinsley are frosty but other than that, nothing is happening. It looks like the Tom and Missy thing will be in the last-minute or two. Oh here we go with it now. Tom and Missy saying they both still get a little choked up when they see each other. While those two are taking off their microphones to take their inappropriate conversation even further, Luann is chatting with Bethenny and Dorinda who mention that she gave up her Countess title to get married. It feels to me like everyone at the event knows that Missy is there to come after Tom. I don’t like this.
Bethenny is not turning down any drinks at this party. By the time she talks to Sonja she is sort of anti-Tinsley. Why does Bethenny even pretend to care about the relationship with Tinsley and Sonja? Bethenny seems drunk and she is suddenly accusing Tinsley of liking to drink.
OMG. Noel, Luann’s son is at the party. This must have been the final straw for Luann. Humiliating her in front of her own son. During the toast, Luann is kissing on Tom. Tinsley says that Sonja is like a sister to her and she loves her. Tinsley gives Sonja a photo of the two of them with Tinsley in the forefront looking fabulous and Sonja slightly behind her with half her head cropped out of the photo. I see what you did there, production. She also gives Sonja a five thousand dollar gift card from Bergdorf Goodman. Thanks, Scott!
Scott is moving to NYC to live with Tinsley. I have a feeling their time will be very divided between NYC and Chicago. Tinsley hosted a viewing party in Chicago tonight and invited a couple hundred lucky Instagram viewers to attend.
Despite her disdain for exercise, Carole is training for the NYC marathon this fall.
Bethenny no longer sees the hockey player and she has taken her current apartment off the market until she gets the permits to renovate the new place. I image those will be coming just in time for her new show.
With Hannah in her own place John is finally allowed to spend the night with Dorinda on occasion. But Dorinda prefers to keep her empty nest all to herself.
Luann’s endnote announces that she has filed for divorce.
Ramona and Mario recently celebrated their daughter’s college graduation and were cordial. But Ramona’s contractor remains the only Mario in her life.
Sonja traveled to France with her daughter where they met up with Edgar. She maintains they are tres hot and heavy… but Sonja still has Rocco simmering on her back burner.
