Tonight, I expect to see more of Siggy’s oddball behavior and unrighteous indignation, in Milan. In real time, Margaret gave an interview this week and said that she had to notify the police that Siggy and PETA trolls were sending her death threats. Apparently, Margaret has a stuffed black bear in her house so Siggy used that as a reason for to continue to spend all of her days online ranting about Siggy and Hitler.
On to Milan, the group splits up into two groups. Teresa, Margaret and Dolores go on a grocery shopping trip prior to heading off to an Italian cooking lesson. Melissa heads off to a bike tour with Siggy and Danielle where they will have a picnic in the park.
I would love to go to this cooking class. They start making handmade pasta and the chef makes it look so easy. Next, they make steak tartare and Teresa takes on this task. All she had to do was chop up the meat but she also chopped up the cutting board and slivers of wood got all in the meat. How does anyone do that?
At the picnic, the girls all share a bottle or two of champagne. Danielle and Siggy are getting along fine. Siggy continues to say nothing nasty things about Margaret. She’s also pissed that Melissa says that Margaret is not anti-Semitic. Andy Cohen had his rabbi on WWHL the other night and she said that Margaret’s comments were not anti-Semitic. Danielle and Melissa both try to get Siggy to take it down a notch. That doesn’t appear to be happening, she’s been escalating online for months now about this one issue.
Eventually they all arrive at dinner at Chef Alberto’s house. Teresa is still claiming she made dinner. It would not be dinner if someone didn’t start talking about sex. That is apparently why they hired Danielle back. Melissa goes to get some water and asks Margaret to go with her. Melissa just wanted to check on Margaret. Meanwhile, Siggy started ranting about Hilter and how it is her trigger word. Teresa says jail is her trigger word. Which is odd because she’s never been to jail that I know of. She went to prison. Margaret gives a very nice apology to Siggy for using a word that triggers her and explains very kindly that she would never say anything to hurt her. It was a very heartfelt apology. Siggy says absolutely nothing. Danielle and Teresa both tell Margaret that her apology was very touching. In a talking head, Siggy says you just don’t get over a comment like that in 24 hours. It’s been seven months and she still won’t shut up about Hitler. She has given Hitler more attention in the last seven months than people who actually write books about him.
The next morning, Margaret has room service delivered to her in the bathtub. At least it was a female employee there pouring her tea on the edge of the tub. I’ve never seen anything like that before.
It’s the last day and once again the girls divide up. Danielle is dressed to the nines to go to the shoe factory with Margaret. Why isn’t Melissa going? I thought that was the entire reason Melissa came to Milan. On the van ride over, they talk about Siggy not accepting Margaret’s apology. This is clearly all we are going to talk about for the rest of the season. And at the reunion which is what sparked Siggy’s latest round or rantings. I see this walking shoe in the Italian shoe store I want!
Teresa and Siggy go pray for Teresa’s mother. Teresa gets very upset about her mother. These two do some sightseeing and then Siggy goes back to talking about herself. Siggy wants to talk about how hurtful it was when Margaret called her Soggy Flicker. Teresa points out that Kim D. called her “an adultree.”God these women are dumber than a bag of hair. They they debate to see whose insult was more painful. I CANNOT HEAR ABOUT THIS CRAP ANYMORE. It’s not going anywhere.
Melissa and Dolores wander around on their own for the day. They actually talked about normal things. Like her doctor boyfriend and how he doesn’t stay in contact with her as closely as she would like. Then they order gelato, that they eat with a fork and talk about Siggy. Melissa bought Margaret a charm bracelet.
It’s time for one final dinner. The table is very elegantly set, and I am already worried about glassware. Melissa starts off with a toast but Siggy of course interrupts her and says she wants to address Margaret. She thanks her for her apology the night before. Then instead of apologizing herself, she starts to cry and announces that no one should ever reference Hitler. Dear Lord this woman is vile. Margaret asks if she thinks she is anti-Semitic. She seems to say yes almost but apologies if she hurt her feelings. Margaret calls her out and explains that an apology is taking responsibility for wrongdoing not saying, “sorry if that hurt your feelings.” Margaret explained the magnitude of aligning someone with a hate group (on nation TV). Siggy again brings up how traumatized she was that Margaret would say Hitler’s name. The entire table is on Margaret’s side. Danielle always sits next to Teresa. I’m just saying. Margaret changes the subject to invite everyone to her disco birthday party.
Next week: Teresa goes to apologize to Danielle’s kid. Melissa fights with Teresa and her husband at the pizza place. I’m sure we will talk about Hitler some more. Margaret talks to her husband about her chances of reuniting with her husband.
