For some reason I thought it was Wednesday and I was busy running errands and going to the grocery store and basically wearing myself out. After some chicken wings and blue cheese dressing and a few glasses of sweet tea, I feel revitalized! Just in time to recap tonight’s Real Housewives of New York. The good news is, we’re going to London! The bad news is, it’s another death story. Speaking of death storylines, I TRIED to watch #RHOOC today, after zipping through all the Meghan scenes, the psychic scenes, the cancer arguments, and such I was left with Shannon working out and a bowling alley scene which managed to include a dead mama scene and a cancer treatment argument. No Bueno. Hopefully this will be better.
We start out at Bethenny’s new apartment that is still under construction. It looks fabulous and it isn’t even finished yet. Carole stops by for a scene to rehash the last episode. The fixtures are beautiful, especially the crystal chandelier in Brynn’s room. I did notice a shortage of windows. Carole tells Bethenny that Luann made a fool of herself at the bedazzling party after Bethenny left. Bethenny sticks up for Luann and suggests that Carole’s recount may be a bit biased. Bethenny thinks that the naked man was a bit much but that Carole and Heather over reacted. Carole has invited Dorinda to London with her, but is a bit concerned now do to Dorinda’s crazy erupting lately.
Okay I am confused. They are showing the Smile Train charity event. And the jeans display that are on auction here. Or at least they were I think it might have ended in the past day or two. But I still don’t get why they held the auction, and if it was for this show, they should have extended the auction at least through this episode. I don’t know why this bothers me so much. It seems like they had a lot of fancy items to bid on. Perhaps the bedazzled jeans didn’t get many offers so they decided to hold them until the show aired. I dunno.
Dorinda tries to make up with Heather. I’m not sure what is happening in the conversation except I don’t think Dorinda likes Jackson Pollack pieces, and Heather didn’t do a good enough job accepting Dorinda’s apology.
Ramona is being served finger foods out of little denim daisy dukes looking serving bowls. She takes two and then deposits the buns back into the serving dish. It’s like a clash of tacky. I mean eating out of little ceramic (I hope) jorts is not exactly Upper East Side. Is it? Next, Ramona is pissed because apparently the necklaces she donated for the jeans are by her jewelry line. Ramona has a jewelry line? Anyway, she wanted her necklaces acknowledged on the signage just like Heather who is donating hundreds of pairs of Yummie Tummie jeans. Because, Ramona. Kristen thanks Heather in her speech for her generous donation. Afterward, Heather and Kristen make up and both are crying about all the Mexican kids with cleft palates they will be fixing. #HeartwarmingMoment
There is an odd scene where Dorinda’s John is sitting quite close to a beautiful black woman while Sonja and Luann seem to be semi-flirting with John while talking about Luann’s sexual escapades in Turks and Caicos. Carole is off to the side somewhere giving disapproving looks. Because Carole is the morality police in this group.
Ramona walks up to where Carole and Heather are seated and talks with Heather. She asks Heather what her jeans retail for and Heather says $98-$118 depending on the style. Ramona says that her necklaces are $80 and she doesn’t understand why she didn’t get any signage. Heather says it is Kristen’s event. Ramona wanted Heather to put her necklace line on Heather’s actual Denim. It seems that Heather had Smile Train stamped on some of the jeans and Ramona thought her line should be on there too. This is too stupid to type. Heather dismisses Ramona. Ramona calls Carole Heather’s lackey. Carole and Ramona exchange unintelligible words.
Carole, Heather and Dorinda go to see a Turkish coffee grind reader. Well, this is a new one. They have Turkish Delights, which reminds me I got a lovely box of goodies that included Turkey Delight. I’ve been trying to mete them out to myself slowly. I guess since I just finished the dark chocolate Jordan almonds last night, I can unhide the Turkish Delight. #Fatass #Narnia
The reader tells Carole that she sees some sort of celebration in a church, she says someone is coming back from her past and for some reason he is apologizing, this person is a person who feels like a husband but who has passed away. She mentions a black Jeep that got a scratch. Carole says this was the first fight she ever had with her husband. There is no way she could know this. She says her late husband is always around. Carole was a bit worried about that considering her um, sexual nature.
They reader tells Heather that her son’s upcoming operation is going to go well and thinks will get much better. She says to listen to the Indian looking doctor. Heather cries.
The reader tells Dorinda that she is too hard on John. Who died with balloons? When Dorinda’s husband died there were balloons in the house that deflated. But one rose up and floated toward her later. She was convince it was him telling her goodbye. She taped it on her iPhone and they show the video from 2011. This psychic is VERY specific.
Bethenny goes to the shrink. Bethenny says that her business is doing well. He says that business is the one area she doesn’t want to discuss with him. It comes across as an arrogance “I know what I am doing, I don’t need your advice” but he sees the underlying fear and that her perception is confidence. She tells the shrink she is accepting of all of the women and enjoying them all. I have yet to see that. I’ll have to take her word for it.
Carole and Adam go grocery shopping for items for Carole’s dinner party. Adam seemed a bit perturbed that Carole would be fine buying tapenade already made in the store rather than just getting the olives he told her to get. I don’t see how Adam can cook in that kitchen. Did he empty the clothes out of the oven? Carole’s apartment is beautiful. Heather and Kristen and Heather’s husband are there for the dinner. Kristen’s husband is out of town. Adam explains the dishes. Adam has either moved in or just sleeps over a lot. The men do the dishes. There is so much left over pasta. I wish it was here. Somehow, Carole has not mentioned to Adam why she is going to London. Not many deep conversations going on between those two.
Dorinda and Carole head to the airport for bloodys in the Delta lounge. Such an Atlanta thing to do. They claim to love the Delta lounge as if they go there all the time, but they have to ask if they can move around with their drinks? So odd. They chat about their dead husbands. Carole talks about Anthony working at ABC with her until he got sick. They talk about coping with the death of a spouse. They cut everyone off and started over. They didn’t feel like they fit in the world they had with their spouses anymore. Dorinda introduced her husband to London and hasn’t been back since he died.
Next Week: The widows arrive in London, Carole is deeply impacted, Ramona sluts around. Sonja gets drunk and may have broken her tooth., it’s hard to tell as the DVR cut off there.
