Last week Jacqueline and Teresa appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and I wrote the blog on that episode before the After Show was posted so let’s talk a bit about that. Teresa was asked if she’d like to make up with her brother and she said that she’d love to and that she loves him more than anything. When she says things like, “I love him more than anything” it really seems fake because it is just a catch phrase, I really hope that she loves her children more than she loves her brother. The fact that she uses “I love him more than anything” makes me believe she doesn’t really mean that. Andy asked both Jacqueline and Teresa about their hair, Jacqueline says she doesn’t use a “bump-it” in her hair she just teases it, Teresa interrupts the question that was for Jac and insists that she just has a lot of hair and that everyone tells her she has such beautiful hair. Since no one was asking you Teresa, lets just say that we know you’re a hairy mother! If only you had a forehead. Teresa explained that in order to straighten her hair it takes an hour to blow it straight then it stays that way for a week, unfortunately she added that she can’t wash it or it’ll go curly again. Teresa doesn’t wash her hair for a week? How does she take a shower without getting her hair wet? She must have an amazing hair cap to keep it dry while she showers. Maybe she takes baths? I could never go a week without washing my hair, I’d be grossed out.
Andy brought out Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley who is now sporting blonde extensions that she admitted she’d just had for two weeks. She’s living at home, her room is a mess and her lips are huge! She’s had a temporary injectible to plump her lips and admitted that her mom paid for it but she didn’t ask first. Jacqueline said Ashley just came home with the big lips and “what am I supposed to say now?”
I don’t know Jacqueline, how about saying that you’re going to make the spoiled brat pay for it herself? How about telling her if she does anything like that again, she is out of the house? So many discussions have gone back and forth about Jacqueline’s mothering skills and she’s defended herself telling viewers that she’s grounded Ashley, taken away her car, her phone, etc. Then we hear that this kid went to a plastic surgeon and had her lips injected at her mother’s expense and Jacqueline just blows it off like it’s nothing, her attitude is, “well it’s done now, nothing I can do”. Sigh…
Andy forced Ashley to say something nice about her mother, she said she loves her so much and appreciates everything she’s ever done for her. It could have been a bit more believable if she’d done it without being prompted by Cohen. Teresa was asked why she had Domino’s Pizza at her Halloween party, she claims she didn’t order it but that other kids brought it with them. Andy asked what the age difference is between her and Melissa – answered 6-years.
Teresa admitted that the “Melissa drama” is much worse than the “Danielle drama” because it’s family. No surprise there. Andy never asks the tough questions, how about asking Teresa how the Bankruptcy case is going? How she felt about her husband sitting in jail? Did she visit the jailbird? Whether she expects Joe to go back to jail for his latest felony?
WWHL with Ramona Singer and Willie Geist.
Ramona does have some big eyes! The show was a bit forgettable, Ramona tried to get a few digs into Luann and Jill. Ramona continues to insist she’s had no plastic surgery. Ramona was asked if she regrets being rude on the trip to Morocco, she denied being rude at all, in fact she explained that Luann offered up the services of the staff to “help” her unpack but that she never required that the staff unpack for her. The caller who asked the question wouldn’t accept that answer and said that she had drink after drink, just proving that Bravo’s attempts to make Ramona seem like she has a drinking problem is apparently working.
Willie Geist was pretty funny at times, he told Ramona that she was losing friends over the Pinot and should just order a Vodka Tonic now and then, I like his subtle comedy but I’m not sure Ramona got it.
Ramona explained the designer issue that Luann complained about on the show. There are plenty of designers out there and Ramona was concerned that Luann would be photographed in the same dress as her if they both utilized the same designer. It makes perfect sense to me particularly when Amazon woman Luann would most likely look better in those dresses, I think I’d do the same if I were Ramona. I adore Ramona when she slams the other women, she is a “get back atcha” kinda gal. Slam Ramona and she’ll slam ya right back!
Luann tweeted that the fortune-teller was spot on, (perhaps a little dig at Ramona) since Ramona’s reading included another woman, Ramona decided to reveal that Luann and her husband both cheated on each other while they were married. Seems to me Ramona thought it would be surprising news to viewers but in fact we already knew the deLesseps were both unfaithful to each other.
Ramona was sure to explain to viewers that Jill lied about her home in the Hamptons during the first two seasons, she pretended to still own the home when actually she was renting it from the owners after having sold it. Jill proudly tells us that she sold at the top of the market but forgets that she failed to reveal it was sold and pretended to still own it. Ramona also tells us that the yellow Ferari wasn’t a gift from Bobby, it was rented for a week so that she could show it off to viewers.
One Flew Over the Couscous Nest by Quincy IL
Ramona Singer is truthful. She is also likely to start riots in the Streets of Marrakesh when she visits the third world country. Ramona can’t help it. She is who she is. She is not afraid to tell Cindy to stick a hanger up her butt or demand IV pinot grigio upon arrival at a bed and breakfast in the Medina for Brad Boles’ birthday celebration. Ramona Singer has become the star of “The Real Housewives of New York City.” For this honor, Ramona should thank Jill Zarin, Luann de Lesseps, Cindy Barshop, Sonja Morgan, and Alex McCord. Each of these women is obsessed with Ramona Singer.
Ramona was the one honest person when the trip was first suggested. She knew that this was an exotic adventure, but with all adventures comes some dangers. The other women may have had their own concerns off camera, but Ramona was upfront in an interview sharing that Morocco is unfair to women. If you look at the veiled women in the souk, you know that they play a role in their society that is subordinate to their husbands and male family members. Ramona is not subordinate. She is her husband Mario’s equal and she might wear the pants in that family.
Luggagegate was the first point of conflict in the three part series where the women visit Morocco. Luann failed to do her homework so she could not tell Ramona what to bring in the line of clothing for the four day visit. Ramona emptied her closet into three suitcases and moved to the Middle East. The stress of setting her jewelry line on pedestals for the camera to film was so great that Ramona asked the staff of the riad to help her. She dominated the unpacking scenes with her animal skinned patterned cocktail dresses and her hip jewelry for belly dancing.
Sonja might have been worried about the security of the luggage, but Ramona made sure we saw what she brought just as she did with her bikinis on the yacht off Scary Island. Ramona knows how to get screen time.
Luann and Kelly may have been concerned that Ramona’s clothes were too sexy, but we watched Kelly’s left breast practically fall out of her yellow swim attire when she was talking to Cindy who was trying to contact her babies on the phone. Cindy’s blue dress was see through. Alex’s skirts were short. Sonja didn’t wear underwear and she kept reminding us of that. Luann showed cleavage when she was shopping for fabrics. Only Jill was covered the entire time and for that we are all grateful. Ramona said that she likes to show a little cleavage, but most of the time she was as covered as any of the others. They all wear sexy clothing.
The next point of conflict was “Hangergate.” Cindy went to her room to discover that some of her clothes had fallen to the floor and hangers were missing from her closet. Who had a hanger in her hand at the time? Ramona did. Thus, begins a skirmish which results in the use of the word “hanger” 36 times. Although I suspect the house maid had a hand in the missing hangers from Cindy’ s closet, Cindy was sure that one of the blonds had gone into her room and violated her privacy while stealing hangers from her closet. Ramona confronted her and talked loudly behind Cindy back resulting in a second confrontation. Cindy informed Luann so Ramona starred in the scene where Luann brought more hangers. There were moments of Mommy Dearest and Joan Crawford when Ramona suggested what Cindy could do with a hanger. Alex and Sonja were very careful to be seen, but not heard during most of “Hangergate.” You don’t want to throw yourself into a volcano if you suspect that you might not be a virgin.
Shades of the Hooters’ Yacht came to our minds when Sonja and Ramona jumped ship rather than eat a lunch with Jill, Luann, Kelly and Cindy. It was not surprising that they went to a luxury hotel for fun in the sun and a search for companionship rather than be near the pool making conversation with people who have been bitching about them for weeks on film, behind their backs and to their faces.
Kelly is seeking revenge on the blonds because of Scary Island. Kelly has used interviews this entire season to complain about the women who discussed her break down in the third season reunion and later in the press. Vengeance is sweet. Kelly knows how to dish it out. BTW, the Scary Island jelly beans are back, but Kelly is not drinking alcohol this time. We see her being very careful to stab people in the backs, but not confront them when they can fight back.
The brunettes happened to be in a fabric shop filming when Brad Boles stopped by to invite them to his birthday party and to discuss the star of this show, Ramona Singer. Apparently, Ramona committed the ultimate sin and did not properly greet Brad at a very large party last summer. For this slight, Ramona would slip on his newly waxed floors and be bitten by a very large and poisonous snake. If that failed to kill her, Brad had hired a veiled French speaking fortune teller who would destroy Ramona with the revelation that there was another woman in her husband’s life.
It was telling that the brunettes received good news about their futures and compliments while the blonds were exposed for their financial problems and marital concerns. The veiled fortune teller must have been a waitress at the lunch by the pool of the riad where she listened to the brunettes’ gossip. Perhaps, Brad shared with a certain mousy brunette with a little gray. Either way, Sonja and Ramona end up in tears. Brad should be happy. I’m sure Jill enjoyed the show. Luann was not afraid to translate, but Kelly ran for the hills.
Everyone is the small kitchen with the tarot card reader was projecting their feelings. Only Ramona kept her cool. She thought the other woman was her daughter. Sonja feelings of abandonment will be shared next week.
Jill is going to have to try harder because Ramona is a formidable opponent and her star is rising after every wave of attacks launched by Team Jill. BTW, did Jill Zarin come back from Australia yet? She is almost invisible in this episode.
Nice work Quincy, as always I love your insight! Lynn~
