Well this episode will be a lovefest. These three are all friends so, hopefully they relax, drink a lot, and forget they are on camera. Jeff has a long way to go to upstage THIS WWHL. Laurie Gelman is behind the bar promoting her new book, Class Mom. I’ve heard good things about the book. It is based on her experiences being a “class mom” for five years at an UES school. All “fiction” of course. Her husband Gelman is the producer for Live With Kelly & Ryan and he is in the audience.
They play a montage of Sonja molesting pretty much every single female within reach on last night’s show. Bethenny reminds us again she likes the turf and not the surf. Bethenny says she thought she saw Sonja and Alex making out on a trip once, and now she is sure she did.
Next it is the drunken situation with Bethenny and Ramona in the pool. Bethenny says that in the moment the apology always seems sincere, but “let’s watch what happens…” The polls went with not sincere but only by a couple percentage points.
The scene we see is a collage of the fight with Dorinda and Bethenny. Bethenny gives us the behind the scenes of what really happened. She says that while Sonja was outside with her trying to lick her vagina, Carole came out and called Bethenny to dinner. It wasn’t really dinner time, Carole was just trying to give Bethenny a way to get away from Sonja. Bethenny didn’t know that so she went upstairs to fix her makeup and change and when she came down an hour and a half later, no one was there. So that’s why she was pissed. Are we buying that?
Time for the game Jeff the Ref where Andy puts up a picture of the housewives and he gives his opinions.
About Sonja and Ramona’s bedroom wars? “Petty and immature. I’m over it.”
About Bethenny “letting” Ramona go on the day trip? “It was the right thing to do.”
About Ramona’s chemical peel? “The timing was off, it was right before a vacation!”
About the fight at Quiet Woman between his BFF Shannon and Kelly? ” I understand Shannon’s perspective. We’ll Just Leave it at that!” That was odd, I expected him to call Kelly all sorts of obscenities. Andy actually follows up on this saying he is great friends with Shannon. He agrees. Andy asks about Kelly, he says we are not friends but we are friendly. Interesting.
About Vicki telling Lydia she’s never conned anyone in her life? “I don’t know any different, so I’m going to say okay. He says he is friends with Vicki, but he hasn’t seen her for a while. He thinks Vicki thinks since he is friends with Shannon that he doesn’t like her. But that’s not true.” Both Andy and Bethenny point out that Jeff is sort of a “Bravo island” meaning he gets along with everyone.
Thoughts on Shannon’s weight and the fact that she was blaming it on Vicki? Jeff says, that he has gained twelve pounds and he does blame it on Vicki.”
A caller asks Bethenny if she thinks Ramona can change into a better person, and if she can’t will she still be her friend. Bethenny says she was waiting to see what happened at the reunion and there was not a new and improved Ramona there. Bethenny says you put your friendships into categories. She says Ramona has emailed her apologies several times recently. Bethenny has told her to enjoy her summer and not worry about it. Bethenny is not angry but she doesn’t think she will ever be friends with Ramona in the same way.
OMG. The Luann divorce thing has to be true. This is so sad, on next week’s RHONY it is a Sonja appreciation party. Tom comes with Luann and Missy, one of Tom’s exes is there. Tom tells her he gets a little choked up when he sees her. Missy says she does too. They proceed to have inappropriate conversation and Missy asks what is really going on? It seems she means with Luann and the marriage. He says, “Oh my God I have to take this off!” and she replies, “Yes! de-mic!” I’m so broken-hearted for Lu.
Andy asks about the divorce rumors. Bethenny says she is very sad for Lu. She is living this whole thing out loud and it’s personal. She decided to stay out of it after they got married. Bethenny said that Luann is great on the trips. She drinks tequila all night and is up and ready for the yoga shoot. Bethenny refuses to comment on the slap. Good job, Bethenny!
Jeff approves of Ramona’s apartment makeover. It does seem very Jeff Lewis now that I think about it.
Jeff refuses to say whether he is a top or a bottom. Hmmm… I’m thinking he’s versatile. Jeff says he appreciates Gage more now that they have a child.
Next, we play sort of a word association game. A housewife’s face pops up and they shout out the first thing that comes to mind. It starts off rather boring and then we get to Heather Dubrow.
Jeff and Bethenny had trouble coming up with things to say about some of them. Bethenny had no words for Erika Jayne. Which was kinder than what she was probably thinking. But when Heather Dubrow popped up, Jeff wasted no time, “inauthentic, pretentious, condescending, snobbish, bitchy…” Bethenny’s eyes got as big as saucers. Andy (who also can’t stand Heather now) was laughing and covering his face. Finally says, “Actress I knew when she was broke.” And the went to break. On the way out of the shot, Bethenny looked at Andy and pointed to Jeff and said, “Wow……wow.” Jeff sucked down some of his drink.
After the break we start with a clip of the new season of Flipping Out. I was so excited until I realized Meghan Weaver Has A Big Beaver is back and so is Vanina. Then Jeff makes Vanina cry and it looks like she might quit. It premieres August 17th.
Someone asks Jeff what he thinks of Tinsley. He says she seems fragile and unstable, but she’s cute.
Bethenny says she didn’t find out that Carol didn’t catch the fish until she saw the episode.
Jeff and Jenni are closer than ever and the talk a lot about baby stuff. Andy asks if he is nicer to her now. He says no, she still has the same personality.
Jeff gives the Mazel to Sonja for getting wasted in Punta Mita and giving us the best housewives trip in history.
Bethenny gives the Jackhole to Sonja for ruining her swimsuit in Mexico. To be fair, it was not Sonja’s fault this time. Dorinda put the suit on her and Sonja tried to tell her that was not her swimsuit. Andy Cohen really thinks he will open a housewives clothing museum. This guy is so delusional.
