It’s time for the final reunion episode of 2015. Once again, I find myself wondering if there is anything left to discuss. Based on the preview it looks like a lot more rehashing of the same old stuff they have run into the ground all season.
Sonja is Delusional
Andy wants to talk more about Sonja’s “brand” is in fact not “very real.” I just realized Sonja is wearing the same dress she did some of her talking heads in this season. I am not a believer in once you wear something once to a big event you can’t wear it again. BUT, if you have an international lifestyle brand (whatever that is) I would think you could find something to wear to the reunion from your vast collection if for no other reason than to see the merchandise. Oh wait, it is from her collection. Andy points out that she has a large collection on her website. Apparently, not large enough to wear something we have not already seen this season.
Somehow, Heather is being attacked by Sonja (and Bethenny who jumps into every single conversation) about not supporting her brand. Yet we saw Bethenny and Heather trying to ground Sonja in reality and give her direction all season. Now somehow that was wrong of Heather while right for Bethenny to do?
Andy points out that Sonja said she would have a retail line IN STORES in the spring. He shows the clip. But Sonja says that she could never have said or done that. #Delusional Bethenny says that Sonja swore that Madonna was there but she could not get through security. Bethenny points out that Madonna was at the British Music Awards at the time. This doesn’t slow down Sonja a bit who insists that Madonna showed up to her fashion show and skulked around in a back alley or something because no one would let her in. Yet her manager somehow got in and got a seat right behind Sonja’s daughter. Madonna is sitting here on the couch with me right now petting Banjo and laughing at this whole story. The Queen Mother is here as well and we are chatting about Harry and William. See? Delusions can be fun! I think mine would work better if I were taking whatever Sonja is taking.
Bethenny says Sonja’s brand is all smoke and mirrors. Yes, we get it. Let’s move on.
On to Luann’s “brand” which Sonja has said is “for the masses not the classes.” A viewer wants an explanation for that comment since Sonja’s brand is about luxury for less. Sonja says that was not a nice thing to say. Luann asks if she likes her dress and Sonja said “it’s beautiful” in a dismissive way.
Andy asks for more input from Bethenny. She says that she and Carole ordered items from the site. It took about six weeks to get them, because there is no inventory and it seems they make the item once they are ordered. Ramona tries to explain to Bethenny how the fashion business works. This subject will never end.
Sonja apologizes to Kristen about misunderstanding her comments in the NY Post.
The Two Widows
They show a montage of Carole and Dorinda’s trip to London. Dorinda acts like she is best friends with Carole now. Dorinda says she went to her book signing and had a break down shortly after her husband died. It was the first time she met Carole. Andy asks what their husbands would think about them being on the show. Carole says she thinks Anthony would be laughing about it. Dorinda says Richard was very supportive of anything she did.
During this, Ramona fell asleep. Luann gestures that she’s had three glasses of wine. Because good friends count your drinks when you hang out. My audio is not lined up with my visual all of the sudden so this is really hard to follow. Andy thinks that was hysterical. Ramona lays down in Luann’s lap. Sonja asks about her wanting one more day, as if there is a need for explanation, and Carole gets emotional.
Turks and Caicos
I can’t go through the naked dude dramatics again. For God sake, where would a naked man hide a weapon or carry your crown jewels?
Ramona is asked why she always has to claim the best room. She says because she always shares with Sonja, so because they share a room they should have the biggest and best one.
Bethenny is asked if screaming “Shut the fuck up!” at Sonja was mean. What a stupid question. There are plenty of times where it is appropriate to scream, “shut the fuck up!” Bethenny says that she was just worried about Sonja. It comes out that Ramona was the one was stirring the pot about her drinking problem. Ramona admits throwing Bethenny under the bus.
Much discussion about Ramona cock blocking everyone from the bar owner.
For some reason Ramona gets to explain bringing the guys from the bar back to the house. Of course she blames it all on Luann. But who really cares? Ramona tells a long complicated story about none of it was her fault. Luann is rightly questioning how any of this is her fault. She screwed her dude and sent him home. Heather says because Ramona didn’t write a song about Girl Code and write her off for three months. BECAUSE YOU BUSTED INTO LUANN’S ROOM AT THE BUTT CRACK OF DAWN RANTING LIKE A LUNATIC HEATHER!
Kristen, who has no dog in this fight at all says that what Ramona did was gross and disgusting and breaking girl code. Oh, Kristen, do shut up! Bethenny tells Kristen she is insane for thinking that when you have a party and people are too drunk to leave that they can’t sleep it off before driving.
Andy now wants to talk about the man Luann was with being married. Luann claims she didn’t sleep with the guy. Pulease. Heather says “no one cares who you fuck or don’t fuck.” Luann shoots back with. “well what were you doing in my room?” Dead silence. Bethenny mocks Heather calling her Scarlett O’Hara and over reacting.
Andy says that Luann should have learned her lesson about the cameras on the St Barts trip. Once again, Bethenny tries to explain another person’s point. Bethenny says that Heather and Carole totally barged into Luanne’s room to catch her with a man. Because they did. You don’t bust into someone’s room unless you are trying to catch them at something. Otherwise you knock and wait for the person to acknowledge you. Apparently, Heather had a camera behind her back. Not a TV camera, a phone camera.
Luann seems to be coming for Heather and insinuating something was going on in their room.
I really hate Kristen on this episode and I’ve been neutral about her all season.
Suddenly, everyone starts hugging everyone. Blame it on the alcohol.
Andy says that this has been a real girl power season where everyone is friends. Does he not have access to the Internet? They all say that they are ending the season as friends and will probably all go out to dinner together. Everyone is teary-eyed. It did oddly end on a happy note.
I’m glad this season is over.
