There really wasn’t much to discuss about last night’s episode of RHONY. To me it seemed like one long hour of Ramona and Sonja screeching about it being “a girls trip” and the others, most vocally Aviva countering with, “No it isn’t! We came to see Russ and go to his concert!” This continued ad nauseum with very few interesting moments interspersed. So it’s no surprise that the blogs from the housewives are pretty short. Luann and Ramona in particular don’t have anything to say they didn’t say last week.
Heather’s blog does explain why she got so upset about the “couples dinner.” It seems like if you read between the lines a bit, it was a combination of two things, first she came on the trip to hang out with Carole and Aviva as her inner circle in the three ring circus the trip became. Those two going to dinner without her left her with Ramona and Sonja with only Luann as a buffer. Also, when Carole and Aviva were getting fish pedicures during lunch they had already abandoned her once, despite the good reason for the separation. I could see being a bit pissed if I was left with Ramonja and the countess for lunch when the two people I liked the best were off giggling about fish nibbling their toes. The whole paragraph about how difficult it is for her to get away was ridiculous. Once you get to the island, you enjoy the island and it’s not necessary to be attached at the hip with your travel companions the entire time. I think she figured that out when she got away to the beach. Once again this week, Heather seems to be leaving the door open a crack to get along with Ramona. Sometimes I think placating Ramona must be in the RHONY contract. Someone should ask Jill Zarin about that.
Aviva titles her blog The Jerk this week. In a short little blog she owns her behavior, said it was all her and not editing and apologizes. She does not say a bad word about anyone else. Sometimes when in a state of heightened anxiety, people do things that seem irrational and annoying. It’s nice when you are among friends when that happens. Sometimes you are not. Let’s hope that moving on Aviva is able to hold it together better. Unfortunately, it looks like Bravo wants to put Aviva in a head to head match next week with a drunken Sonja.
In Heather’s blog, it was nice to see that she did find some compassion for Aviva eventually when she wrote:
We are discussing the Ramona situation, hers not mine, and she turns to me and says in reference to how I dealt with Ramona’s wrath, “You are a lot stronger than I am.” And, I just realized that maybe I am, and maybe I need to back off Aviva a little. Maybe I can just be that strong woman and let these ladies have their moments.
Sonja and Carole are both late with their papers. Carole tweeted asking for an extension last night as she was flying in from somewhere. I’ll update when their blogs turn up. Carole’s is usually the most interesting one.
