I am so sad it is the finale of Ladies of London! I am going to miss this show so much! We pick up where we left off at Caroline’s dinner party. Caprice is not there yet, she is arriving in the dark. She is hoping there will not be confrontation. Caroline is already pissed that Caprice did not greet her first, but the other ladies in the vicinity stood to hug her and Caroline just sat there. Caroline says that she arranged for Caprice to have a vegan dinner and she does not even acknowledge her and barely touches the dinner.
After dinner Caprice announces with elaborate and impolite detail that her surrogate is in labor. Caprice says her surrogate wants her there, and Caprice is unsure as to when she should leave. Our National Treasure Juliet makes quite good use of herself when she points out that they are quite near Heathrow. I mean, WTF? Where is her husband? Was being on the final episode so important to her that she had to miss the birth of her first born? What hadn’t already gone days ago? What could possibly be more important?
The ladies all scatter and then eavesdrop on the scene with Caprice and Caroline. Caprice denies asking Caroline to have her baby shower. Caroline says that she had hired the best planners to oversee the event and then she was told that she was not good enough. Caprice says she never said that either. Then Caprice wants to bring up something that was told to her today by Noelle and Marissa. I haven’t even heard what yet but I already imagine that Marissa had little if anything to do with it. Caprice said the girls said that Caroline was bullying them because they were having a shower for her. Really? This bullying nonsense occurs across the pond as well? Caroline explains that is not what happened she merely told them that she had been asked and that Caprice had cancelled on her. Caprice is delusional. Caroline is going to get her phone with the texts from Matt showing that Caprice asked Matt and Marissa if they could have a shower for her at the restaurant. Caprice says she thinks she best go. Not because her first born is about to come screaming out of someone else’s vagina but because Caroline has her pinned to the wall and rather than simply apologize, she has chosen to flee.

Back across the pond, Annabelle is bed-ridden for the next four months. It takes her quite some time to moves from the bed to a chair two feet away. She can’t put any weight on her rear when sitting. Caroline gossips with Annabelle about Caprice asking Marissa and Noelle to host a baby shower. Annabelle tells Caroline to suck it up and go. There seems to be some question about whether or not is even a baby shower, of if it is a “leaving party.” Annabelle’s body is so twisty and out of place it is hard to look at. Annabelle sense a power struggle between Caprice and Caroline.
Have we seen Caprice’s boyfriend before? I thought Caprice was married. Caprice and Ty’s surrogate is dilating. Ty doesn’t seem in any sort of rush to fly to the US yet. Caprice should probably be flying over herself right about now to have her baby there instead on mid flight over the Atlantic somewhere.
Caroline is having a dinner party with all the girls. It will be a catered event with waiters. Caroline is hiring an etiquette coach for Juliet, our National Treasure, in hopes that she might use proper decorum at the dinner table. Good luck with that. It’s a cheeky storyline. Caprice and Julie head off to visit with Annabelle. Caprice tells Annabelle that she is invited to Caroline’s dinner party and she does not want to go. Annabelle tells Caprice to go to dinner at Caroline’s and make up with her before the goes back to the states. Continue reading
The ladies are all a bit hungover the next morning. The awake to discover that Caprice left the lodge and went back to London with Julie and Annabelle. Juliet is bashing Caprice and Marissa says that perhaps Caprice is hormonal. She’s in her last trimester and she’s probably just getting irritable. Our national treasure, Juliet jumps all over Marissa as if she had just campaigned for Caprice to be prom queen over Juliet. Clearly, Juliet has issues with Caprice and won’t rest until everyone else despises her as well. Caroline suggest that they all go out for a bit of hair of the dog.
Annabelle’s first scene of the episode is with a horse named Mr. Fickle who she is riding in her much ballyhooed charity race. His ankles are wrapped in purple bandages and Annabelle immediately explains to the trainer that purple is a McQueen color. Dear lord, this woman is obsessed with a dead man. Anabelle is a great rider. Continue reading
Time to check in with the Ladies of London! We get to go to Julie’s castle or whatever she lives in. This is the first time everyone will be together after the July 4th feud. Julie is worried about Juliet’s lack of decorum. Also Caroline is still pissy with Caprice for not being gracious about her offering her a baby shower. Annabelle is ever so used to going shooting in Mapperton. Noelle looks like she is making some sort of walk of shame to Mapperton. Caprice admits she feels like shit and is hormonal. Or short version, this is going to be awesome!
Tea and champagne at the croquet field? Um, I’ll skip the tea part of that. It seems like either a one or the other sort of thing to me. Only Annabelle was deemed fit to actually sleep at the manor. All the rest will be housed off property somewhere amongst the peasants.
The Americans travel together. Noelle is still pissed with Scot. The Brits, Annabelle and Caprice travel together. Caprice trashes Juliet and tells Annabelle she has laid into her on her behalf. Then Caprice trashes Caroline, who kindly offered to host a shower for her in her insanely expensive home. Continue reading
I am so behind on my trash TV watching and blogging! If I don’t get caught up now it is only going to get worse since my biggest addiction, Big Brother has begun! Let’s see what the Ladies of London are up too! OMG! Juliet’s kids are so adorable! Juliet’s husband is awesome and supportive!
Thanks, Bravo, for reminding me of these ladies’ names. Annabelle and Caroline get together for tea and shade. The shade is for ridiculous American, Caprice. But there was some left over for Juliet as well. Caroline calls Juliet to tell her to apologize to Annabelle for making a scene on the street. Frankly, I don’t see why she should, but I am American.
Caprice is trying to prepare to go the US to birth her baby and pick up the spare one from the surrogate. But first, she has a lot of horse races and hat parties to go to.
Juliet is having a hat party. I am in love with Pip, the milliner and her dress, and her hats. The rest of the ladies dresses are a bit…um..different. I want the headband hat. Please have it sent. Thanks. I shall wear it with sweats on the sofa. I’d also like a piece of that fudge. At the party, Caprice seems angry with Caroline for not being angry with Juliet over the fight with Annabelle and makes an early exit.
Noelle and Scot are still hunting for a place to live. This place is much nicer than the last place and a mere $10K a month. Scot is “bankrupt” until the divorce is over and he can stop hiding his money. Allegedly. Continue reading
Juliet and Marissa go out for drinks. I am really starting to become interested in London, and I have always preferred other places as a travel destination. The Yanks are throwing a Fourth of July party. Marissa is already suggesting that Juliet’s cardboard cutouts and party ideas are tacky. They are. Marrissa suggests “jam jars” for the glasses because it is so Americana. Carole is offended by the whole July 4th thing. Of course she is.
Caprice’s publicist calls to tell her she is on the cover of Daily Mail. What they don’t tell you is that she was a fashion fail and they HATED her bug dress. Gotta love reality TV.
Time for tea and scones with Annabelle (is that her name?) and her granny who is regaling us with fascinating stories about the Queen of Sweden. So cute.
Enough cuteness. Now we have Caroline ruling her office. She’s upset that her “jelly tots” (candies) are not color coordinated. Dear Lord, the dollar to pound ratio is still horrible. London suddenly looks less appealing again. Continue reading
I’m going to be looking back at my blog for the premiere episode a LOT trying to keep the names straight tonight. I wish I had included everyone’s hair color. I’m so bad at remembering faces.
We start with Juliet. I think she is the sort of obnoxious one. Her kids, however, are precious.
Marissa is working at her restaurant. Juliet shows up for lunch. There is a huge party coming up! The Serpentine Gallery Summer Party, which is actually a big deal and always full of supermodels and fancy people.
Scot and Noelle sit down to discuss the divorce proceedings. The divorce has been postpones again because his wife is out of funds again. They are paying millions to the lawyers. The wife says Scot is hiding all of his assets. Noelle is upset that things are being postponed. Scot is ready to buy a place together. Noelle wants to wait until the divorce is final. Scot wins the debate and they go looking for a place to live. It’s $6.700 a month. And it’s awful. And it smells like old people. Somehow, Scot and Noelle were not invited to the Serpentine event. Continue reading
It’s time for Ladies of London! I haven’t seen any previews for this show and I have no idea what to expect, but I am looking forward to a new show. That said, there are seven ladies on this show and to me, that is at least one if not two, too many. It will also be a tough recap senses I have no idea who is who on the show. Let’s see what happens!
Caroline purports to be true British high society. She claims Brad and Angelina are her new neighbors and she grew up “mixing with royals.” She has three boys including at set of twins. She runs a business that has something to do with high-end gifts. Her lips are weird.
Caprice is a cover girl from California. She has lived in England for 17 years, she moved there when she was 24. Caprice is famous in England. She has dated Rod Stewart, David Spade and Dennis Quaid. She has a very successful lingerie business. She is pregnant. She seems to be friends with Caroline. Continue reading
