Only The Real Housewives of New York City celebrate a party by bickering and back stabbing but perhaps that’s why “The Party Is Toast.” We recap the naked models and dirty old men in our THG +/- review.
Why oh why has someone let George leave Florida? It’s bad enough New York City must suffer its own Housewives. Must it endure their sleazy fathers?
Minus 20. There’s nothing cute or funny about George. The constant sex jokes make me want to slap him and leave it to George to bring a sex toy to a White Elephant holiday party. George is tasteless bordering on crude and I’m with Carole. I wouldn’t sit anywhere near him either.
Carole goes all out this week and hosts two parties. Well, sort of. The luncheon isn’t quite up to Housewives standards. Yes, some of us might find it OK to invite our friends over and ask what they’d like to order in but these ladies are horrified. But she earns a plus 8 for the cool MMs. How far in advance do you think she had to order those?
Sonja finally has her toaster oven photo shoot and you’d think she could show up on time or get her hair and makeup done when asked but this is Sonja we’re talking about. Scatter brained is the only way she operates.
But I’ll agree with her on one thing. When I see a naked man holding that toaster oven, cooking isn’t the first thing that pops into my head. Sorry Heather but that entire concept is kind of dumb. Minus 7.
I can handle the photo shoot and Heather’s bossiness but did we have to get a play by play of Sonja’s period? Minus 20. How many times do we have to watch this woman run to the bathroom?
Sonja should really learn to keep her mouth shut around Ramona. When she shares that she felt Heather was bossing her around at the photo shoot (she was the person in charge but we’ll forget that point), Ramona can’t wait to throw that tidbit in Heather’s face.
Minus 10 because Ramona’s only loyalty is to Ramona and she’ll happily throw her friend under the bus if she feels it will give her the upper hand against her newest nemesis.
Did you see Ramona’s magazine cover? Does anyone know how much photo shopping and air brushing it takes to make a 50 year old woman look like her teenage daughter? Minus 9 because it’s actually a little creepy.
At yet another party, because what else do these ladies do besides drink and socialize, Aviva rehashes the whole wine game incident. Why? I don’t know.
Didn’t all of the people involved hash this out last week? Do we really have to listen to it again? And what the Hell business is it of Aviva’s?
Minus 12 because Aviva seems to be touting herself as the group’s moral authority but the more she talks the more annoying she sounds. And I may not be Heather’s biggest fan but she is right. Waiting for Jacques to leave and then making fun of his accent is nothing but childish and mean. Plus 10 for saying something about it.
Look out! It’s another infamous Ramona hit and run as she overhears Heather’s conversation, screeches something about her talking behind her back and then runs off.
Yes, Aviva, it might not be nice to tell Mario his wife is crazy but it doesn’t change the fact that his wife is crazy. Perhaps someone can drop Ramona and George on the same desert island and we can be done with both of them. I’m beginning to wonder if Aviva should land there too but she’s to scared to get on the plane.
A couple of side notes worth mentioning…
- Luann telling Ramona she shouldn’t have been allowed at the photo shoot because she’s a pain in the ass. Plus 11 for being so direct.
- Ramona admitting to Aviva that she has mental issues too. Yeah, no kidding.
- Poor Avery trying to get her mother to shut up during yoga. Minus 8. Ramona and zen don’t seem to mix.
- Aviva asking if she can bring Reid along on the girl’s vacation to St. Bart’s. Is Reid a girl? Then leave him at home.
So who thinks St. Barts will be a complete disaster and which housewife do you think will come off the rails? Let’s tune in next week to find out.
