Labor Day is a big weekend in the Hamptons for New Yorkers, and last night on The Real Housewives of NYC it was more gossip than play. Before a "just add music" dance party with Ramona and Mario, Bethenny and Jason get drinks with the couple to discuss Ramona's sassy, new haircut as well as both of their altercations with "classless (countless) LuAnn" earlier that day.
This episode's social butterflies, Ramona and Mario later grab dinner with Alex and Simon, during which Ramona invites them to her Labor Day party. Conversation leads to guilt and Mario calls LuAnn to apologize about the "countless" comment. Passing the baton over a lovely fruit salad, LuAnn plays the voicemail message for Jill who translates the message into a simple, "Bring it on, Bitch."
Jill decides she's between a rock and a hard place and calls Ramona to decline her Labor Day party invite. Little does Ramona know, Jill has her on speakerphone in front of LuAnn as she rants away about rude LuAnn. Politely, LuAnn notes her appreciation of Jill's loyalty.
So happy Labor Day and cheers to picking teams. Kelly ends up attending LuAnn and Jill's party, while Ramona, Bethenny, and Alex (not so comfortably a la skinny girl cocktail logo talks) spend the afternoon together. Alex and Simon attempt to leave early, but Ramona and Mario pressure them to stay. The big twist? Alex calls Jill and LuAnn and dishes all conversations had at Ramona. We never could have guessed that Alex might take a step away from Simon and turn out to be the Real Housewives mole. But I suppose that's just what happens when you take the Housewives to the Hampton's. [xoxo.]
LuAnn get a life!!! Really is that the worst comment you have ever heard, and Jill please your adding to the drama!! Love Ramona and Bethanny!!! Was not a fan of Alex and Simon in the first season, but they have grown on me. Keep it real!!!
Love the show.
This season, NYC makes little sense. Bethenny is more self obsessed than ever before. She can't walk and chew gum if she can't handle having caring friends WITH a new beau and increased work issues. Alex and Simon dropped the HWs that treated with warmth and respect in favor of the women who viciously trashed them on a regular basis. Mario and Simon talked like yentas at the labor day luncheon. They both talked smack about Jill. WTH? Kelly improved in coming back down to Earth for a bit. She even seemed more lucid. Good for Her!
GO BETHHENNY! I respect Alex for trying to remain neutral in what has become so "high school". Jill needs to mind her own business.
I think it is unfair for LuAnn who is suppose to be a woman of manners and grace - wrote a book on it - that she is asking Alex to take sides and she wasn't kidding! Get over the countless statement for gods sake! I have heard you women say alot worse about each other. I think it is ironic that Alex comes off being the most sane and together person this season. I respect the way she is trying to stay neutral but the ladies are trying to push her into joining there high school arguments. Go Alex stay true to who you are!
Actually, Alex really chose ramona's side....why...she attended ramona's gathering but didnt show up for luu-ann's? A phone call does not justify her not wanting to choose sides...all Alex did was not show at luu-ann's so that ramona does not get offended of some sort. That sounds like Alex chose a side. If she doesnt want to choose a team....she should be able to want to show up for every party invited to, not just whichever she feels she's freinds with that day...watch out for her too.
