So I went out tonight to get my Fat Tuesday on and ate something that didn’t agree with me. As I was paying the tab, my heart was a bit racy, then on the short car ride home I had some heartburn? acid reflux? That sent me into a coughing fit. The second I opened the door, I dashed to the rest room and got sick and now I feel better but a bit wonky. So I am going to make this one quicker and shorter than usual and then lie down for a bit. Apologies.
Meanwhile, back at Teddi’s gorgeous beach house, Dorit is pissed Kyle took Erika’s room after she went home early with menstrual cramps. Dorit doesn’t seem to understand that she is at the bottom of the pecking order. LVP mocks Erika in a talking head for using cramps as a reason to go home. I think it is a perfectly acceptable reason. Especially if it is true. Ah, it seems that what she did was check herself into a hotel. I can see why they might have an issue with that, however, Teddi did tell them that there was a hotel nearby if they needed I higher level of luxury for the night. She’s rich, so more power to her, I say.
Kyle tells Erika she missed a good time they all stayed up to the wee hours of the morning and got drunk and danced on tables. I’m sure Erika is heartbroken to have missed that. She’s really not much of on camera drinking. Dorit tells us that everyone was talking about Erika after she left. That is to be expected. So we get footage of Teddi being a bit offended that she went to a hotel. A trainer comes to work out with the ladies. Dorit and Erika opt out of the workout. Instead, Dorit tells Erika that Kyle and Teddi were made that she left. Erika confronts them both before they’ve even caught their breath from the workout Kyle says she wasn’t mad, she just wished she would have stayed. Teddi said she wasn’t mad, she just thought it was weird that she would come and pick a room and then leave at the last minute. Erika seems a little more pressed with both of them than I would have expected.
Camille jumps in and asks Dorit why she is being such a tattle tale to Erika. Erika goes into room to pout. This must be in the script because this is not Erika behavior. Maybe it’s PMS. Dorit calls Camille silly, she says she doesn’t think it is silly. She reminds Dorit that she called her a cunt. Dorit asks if we are going to go over that again. Camille says Dorit is a shit stirrer. Erika feels embarrassed that her period is a storyline. She’s snippy and teary. Now everything is awkward. Thanks, Dorit. Now Teddi is emotional. Teddi suggest that they just call it a day. She thanks everyone for coming and goes to her room. Way to go, Dorit.
On the ride home, Kyle wants to know why Dorit threw Kyle and Teddi under the bus. Dorit can’t really defend herself.
Next we see Rinna of the set of The Middle. I believe I just read that show was cancelled. I’d never heard of it. Apparently, it’s been on for nine years.
Oh yay! We get a Tom and Erika scene at their gorgeous home! This is what I watch for! Tom only drinks his coffee out of a super tall styrofoam cup. You can tell that with glass gate happening this season, she feels the need to remind us of that. Oh by the way. I was served champagne in a wine glass at dinner tonight and cracked up about it. Quelle Horreur! I was more concerned by the stingy pour. Erika’s book is being published by Simon & Schuster. I remember when that used to mean something, back before they published Teresa Giudice’s books.
Everyone is going to NYC for NYFW and some of the women have parties, Camille and Rinna’s girls are all walking in shows, Erika has a meeting with her editor, there is a lot going on. Teddi comes to Kyle for help with what to wear to her store party in NYC and what to wear to the day of fashion shows. Kyle is super sweet to Teddi. They bond over Dorit’s trouble-making behavior. I love Kyle and Teddi together.
When we get to NYC, Rinna makes it clear her kids are paying for their own apartment and doing all of the decorating themselves. We also get a Jonathan Adler infomercial. This was ridiculous when RHONY or whoever did it and is equally ridiculous now. People who pay hundreds of dollars for large prescription pills to decorate their home with should all die in a fire.
I missed what hotel they checked into but I was not a fan of the room. LVP always manages to make even the most sparkly top look frumpy. I’m not trying to be mean, it’s just something I’ve noticed.
We get lots of flashbacks to the girls living in NYC in the 80s and 90s.
I hate seeing Kyle buying jewelry now that I know it was all stolen. Meanwhile everyone except for Kyle and LVP are together for drinks and apps. So of course all the other ladies talk about LVP and Kyle. And by all the other ladies, I mean Dorit. Dorit told the story of LVP bouncing from her luncheon with Kyle and Dorit and racing off in her Bentley. Erika tells us what we already know in her talking head on the subject. LVP loves that Kyle and Dorit are vying for her affection.
Dorit goes on and on talking about how LVP and Kyle had a bit of a dustup at the luncheon. Of course in Dorit’s telling she is simply an innocent bystander in all of it and not the one stirring the shit.
Then Dorit tells Rinna about Erika not feeling well and fleeing to a hotel for the night on the beach trip. Dorit starts exaggerating what Kyle said about Erika leaving. Teddi reiterates that all she said was Erika leaving after she had picked a room and unpacked was weird. Rinna tells us that how the women responded to it is the weird part. Erika says, “Erika is going to do what Erika wants to do until the fucking day she dies.” Rinna says, “That’s fucking right.” Teddi looks a bit frightened by the whole situation and is probably desperately wishing Kyle was there.
Somehow we go back to Dorit talking about her friendship with LVP she seems to be trying to makeup some private comment LVP made to her as she goes along. She basically comes up with that LVP said that sometimes in group settings LVP feels left out by Dorit when she is talking to others. This sounds NOTHING like LVP to me and Erika seems to realize Dorit is lying right away. Dorit just keeps talking and talking and talking about LVP. Teddi has a talking head telling her to STFU. Sadly, she just keeps on rambling. Dorit says that LVP was jealous that she was talking to Kyle. Everyone with a brain at this table knows that Dorit is full of shit. So Rinna asks if she has said any of this to LVP. She says that she hasn’t but she absolutely would.
Next week: Erika and her co-author meet with their publisher. Rinna’s daughter books Dolce & Gabana, Kyle tells LVP Dorit said she was jealous and immature and needy. Oh goodie! Perhaps this will be the nail in Dorit’s diamond! Kyle has her own argument with Dorit.
