We are back at the birthday party for Dorinda where Heather and Bethenny have both burst into tears after an argument. And just as suddenly as the tears came Bethenny has suddenly decided she wants to give Heather a hug. So they hug it out. Do you think Bethenny realized she was looking like a bitch? Are is she hormonal like some of us? What the hell are those weird green statues on the shelf in the dining room? They are creepy and wonderful all at once! Bethenny tells us in her talking head how much pressure she is under.
I forgot how drunk everyone was. Sake was not a good idea for this crowd. Luann stands up and walks over to John and gives him some sort of condescending speech about how she likes him, sort of. Apparently, that was supposed to be a toast. Not to be outdone, Ramona gives a toast. Then Bethenny gives a toast to the party saying when Sonja is the sanest person in the room, we’ve had a good party. Bethenny is still doing sake shoots. She says to Sonja, she doesn’t think she is a good dinner party guest.
They separate into two camps one for Heather and one for Bethenny. Clearly, the hug didn’t last long. They are all drunk. I doubt Bethenny will remember this in the morning.
Back in NYC, Ramona goes to pick up Avery for winter break. They literally ran toward each other and hugged. It was so sweet. Avery has a paper to turn in by tonight. They start semi arguing in the car. That hug didn’t last long either. I love seeing New York decorated for Christmas. I’m glad they are back to cold weather filming in NYC.
Ramona tries to talk to Avery about Mario “trying to reconcile with her.” Avery wants no part of the conversation. Avery says she should do whatever makes her happy. She is a grown up, she can handle kit. Avery seems a bit teary in the conversation. Avery has grown into a wise and lovely young lady.
Bethenny goes to a business meeting with all of her business partners. It’s a “brand summit.” It’s in a hotel banquet room that is literally covered in SkinnyGirl products. Bethenny has invited Sonja to show her how real business meetings go. Sonja asked a question about if Bethenny’s fanbase was responsible for her success. The answer was unclear. Sonja says something about how good Bethenny looks in a bustier. Bethenny really is a boss.
Later Bethenny and Ramona go to dinner. Ramona is pissed there are no men for her to rub on there. Dorinda and Heather also join them. Ramona wants to rehash Heather and Bethenny’s argument. Carole arrives late appearing to be freshly fucked and walking funny. Carole tries to stick up for Heather but Bethenny says she does not want to hear it. Ramona is having a party at her sports bar and has invited me for the single ladies. Carole starts talking about being in three ways. Ramona is grossed out. Bethenny contemplates being an above the waist lesbian.
Kristen wants to do a nail polish line. That’s a new one. Something I might actually buy if the polish is any good. Carole comes to the meeting saying that she had been thinking of doing a nail polish line so she has some research. Kristen has trademarked “Pop of Color”! Wow, that’s a good trademark. Carole wants to name all the colors with sexual terms like, “thrust” and “slide” then she rattles off a bunch of terms for penis as options. The group is appalled.
Ramona’s Sports Bar Party
Ramona is excited that Bethenny is getting along with her. For now. Bethenny is sitting with one of Ramona’s UES friends . She comments that it is weird that the RHONY girls are behind a red rope. The UES chick says, “It’s because they are not our kind of people.” Bethennys says they look like her kind of people. In her talking head Bethenny says, “What, are they not our kind of people because they haven’t had vaginoplasty this week?” I have to say, Bethenny’s talking heads make this show. And in comparison to what I endured last not with RHOOC, this whole cast is just fine. Kristen comes in with her husband Josh and things are awkward between Kristen and Bethenny. I have heard that Kristen really had a hard time with the taping this season. I think she got boxed in as Heather’s ally by Bethenny and pays for it all season. Thankfully, Heather and Luann arrive shortly behind to rescue her.
Heather and Ramona talk about Heather by her back saying they both find her disingenuous. That was Bethenny’s word of course, not Ramona’s. Meanwhile, Kristen tells Heather that she feels Bethenny freezes her out. Carole goes to Kristen and stirs the shit . She tells her that Bethenny said that Kristen doesn’t hold the trademark for Pop of Color and Bethenny called her dumb. I thought that would be a huge trademark that someone already owned. I guess I was right. Carole seems drunk as she is saying all this to Kristen. So rude.
It Ramona really is a partner in this bar, it’s a very pretty bar. Tons of windows. Luann and Bethenny have a conversation. Luann just wants to stir the shit and is asking Bethenny why she lost it at the dinner table. Bethenny wants to know where this is coming from and Luann asks if they are friends or not. Luann just wants to know she is okay. In the middle of this disagreement, Kristen tries to interrupt to confront Bethenny. Both of them tell her to go away.
Kristen finally corners Bethenny to approach her about why she is so standoffish with her. Kristen tells her how excited she is about her nail line and asks he why she is telling Carole her nail polish line is not trademarked. Bethenny realizes that she is busted googling and researching Kristen’s nail polish line and totally storms off and refuses to give Kristen a response. Kristen chases her through the bar asking for answers.
Bethenny is drunk again. She goes to Heather and apologizes again for their argument in the Berkshires. Bethenny says she is hanging on by a thread. She used to be tough, but things in her life are at a new level. They hug again. Bethenny leaves.
Next week: Luann has some sort of a photo shoot. Sonja invite everyone to Turks and Caicos’ . Bethenny cries some more.
