Alex and Simon were more likeable when they were trying to make connections. When Alex found her voice she did not know how to use it in an effective and productive way. However, I am sure they will land on their feet.
Jill, without Bethanny, she just became even more snobbish and uptight.
Kelly, talked nonsense out of both sides of her mouth. Cindy added zero to the show. I am not sure why the Countess is still on. She has the class of a gnat. Ramona is Ramona. She has stayed the same season after season. Despite what the others say she has great business sense. At little off, a little hard to watch at times, but she is real. Interesting to see who the new housewives will be!
