It’s time for the finale of RHONY! I think this season was the perfect length. I got to know, and mostly love the three new ladies, and I’ve had enough Ramonja to last a lifetime. The mysterious ping-pong trophies scene with Carol last week has now been made clear. Carole hosted a ping-pong tournament which is perfectly normal princess behavior I guess. However, it was Heather who was the ping-pong queen. Aviva really needs to just ignore Ramona. Pretty much everyone needs to ignore Ramona. Can we just talk about something else? Anything else? Heather is right about that. Also, Heather’s husband is hot. Just throwing that out there.
Now we have to see how well Heather handles Sonja. Sonja agrees with Heather and opts for the um, hotter, toaster oven. Everything went great! This means something is definitely wrong. Shouldn’t Sonja want the one with just her? I thought the one with just Sonja was more Sonja than the others. It seems maybe when Sonja is by herself she’s less of a bitch than she is when Ramona is around to get her riled up. Plus she seemed oddly sober. Crisis averted. Point for Heather.
Heather seems to be having an easy time with Aviva. She manages to lead Aviva to the correct wardrobe without too much fuss. Heather is very serious about her fashion show. Aviva was nervous about showing so much skin but eventually agree to walk in the coveted last look position. Flash forward to the fashion show and Aviva is wanting to change everything at the last minute. She wants less clothes. She wants more hair. Aviva doesn’t really understand that a model is there to show the clothing line and that it’s not about her. Aviva is still mocking Ramona. Give it a rest. Unlike Ramona, Heather actually cares about her charity work. This is a big show for Heather. Of course Ramonja are being disruptive and loud. Aviva takes off her jacket at the last minute! Heather is going to be beyond pissed. That was her “last look.” I can’t believe Aviva doesn’t understand that. That’s just unspeakable.
Meanwhile, Sonja and Ramona are being bitches. They both very loudly pestered the photographer from the toaster oven shoot about things Sonja had previously said were fine. Sonja began telling Heather what she was entitled to, and Heather pretty much asked them both leave. Sonja doesn’t seem to get that Ramona just got her all worked up during …as they say in the world of Bravo Housewives, “Heather’s Big Day.” As usual Ramona starts the drama and then literally turns her back on it and listens with a grin on her face as Heather and Sonja argue. Of course Ramonja is drunk and that is not helping. So Heather had three people being rude and disrespectful at her event. And Aviva seemed to have no anxiety at all about taking center stage when it was all over and hugging the violinist. Ramona stumbles out muttering to Sonja that she provided the Pinot Grigio. We all know all of Sonja’s financial hopes and dreams are tied up in her toaster oven venture. So I think it’s safe to assume that Ramonja were not major contributors to Heather’s charity.
Later, Ramona crashes into Carole’s book party loud and clearly loaded. She seems to be sincere about wanting to make amends with Heather; but, she does it by throwing her only ally under the bus. Ramona stumbles off in one direction while Sonja swoops in on Heather from another direction. Sonja apparently doesn’t even remember what happened at the fashion show. Shouldn’t there be some sort of a rule by now that forbids Bravo housewives from attending fashion shows? I think that probably island vacations should be forbidden as well, particularly for New York housewives. Heather finally just tells Sonja what she did to ruin her evening. Sonja volleys the blame back to Ramona. Heather points out that Ramona blamed her. Then we have Ramona versus Aviva part 34. I’m so over it. I like Aviva and seeing her waste so much time on Ramona is disappointing. Aviva seems almost as drunk as Ramona when she freaks out about the way Ramona mistreated her father. Luann, Heather and Carole take Aviva’s side. It looks like things are going to wind up as four against two in the finale.
But then, in the preview it seems like Luann may still be a bit ruffled that she’s been outshone by a real live princess. She accuses Carole of talking about her behind her back. I suppose it is about the Tomas thing. C’est la vie, Luann. Comme on fait son lit, on se couche. Which roughly translated means, the one who smelt (Lauren Manzo spelling) it dealt it. So we will have the new girls versus the old girls on the reunion it seems. Expect the countess to royally sit side-saddle on the fence for some of the arguments.
What did you think about the finale?
