WOW! A lot to discuss here my Bravo readers.... As you can see, we have went through a lot of drama, and it was finally the day of rest, aka, the Sabbath! so it was time to give it a rest and plan a fun weekend for me and my girls in the Hamptons. I knew how much the girls and I were going through between our families, love lives, and friendship drama, and let's not forget the POOL PARTY, that I went out of my way to plan a fun-filled relaxing weekend for the girls. I actually do work and saved my own money to rent the house for the weekend because it was important for me to have the ladies experience the peace and positive energy and true meaning of the Sabbath.
Speaking of the pool party, I am giving Joey kudos for owning up to bringing RGB to the pool party and for being sensitive to Amanda's feelings! KolHa Kavod is how we would say it in Hebrew: "Kudos to you, with all due respect. It takes a lot to own something and apologize for it, but luckily in our group of friends and within our culture, it's about forgiveness that allows us to move forward. I am proud of how AB (Amanda, my nickname for her) handled herself with Joey. This is what a princess is all about. Hitting rock bottom, but picking yourself right back up, humbling yourself, owning your actions, bettering yourself, and accepting people's apologies! I am all about communication, especially when it comes to relationships. We all come from different backgrounds, different upbringings. We experience different things in life, and we all need to hear each other out and talk things out in order to better ourselves.
There is so much anti-semitism in the world and it happens within our own culture, that it's important for me to have my girls and I stick together and not let anyone come in between us or separate us. We need to embrace one another as women and as Jews, regardless of what genre of Judaism we come from.
Chanel - despite your name (which is ridiculous) -- Cali loves you & Casey!!!! The rest of the cast is an embarassment to you and Long Island. Ewwwwwwwe!
I get it. Casey is your friend, you care about her and want to defend her, but she didn't give Erica an opportunity to apologize or do anything. All she did was blatantly ignore her and then attack her at the dinner table. Erica is right. Casey, not about what she did 10 years ago, but that she did not deserve to be spoken to like that at the dinner table.
I like you Chanel, but your friend Casey is a brat and she's wrong in this case. She needs to move on.
I wish you luck finding a guy to "eat Ashlee's face". Hopefully that will make her be quiet.
You're adorable and really fun to watch! I thought Casey was incredibly rude though. I'm surprised to see you defend her so vehemently here.
Chanel- You are a great person and so grounded!! I would love to have a friend like you- you really care about the right things and know so much about human nature. You and Casey are the best! The others are fun but Casey and you are the ones I would hang out with.
Whoever you marry will be getting a real treasure!! Keep that confidence in yourself and it will happen for you when the right man comes along. Just be sure he is the right man for you- you deserve someone who is a prince among men.
Thanks for letting us into your lives- looking forward to next week. xx
You are the best one on the show.....the rest of the girls make me want to sell my home and move off of the North Shore. My heart broke for Casey and to see Ericka act as if she were the injured one is pathetic, if she were my daughter I would want her out of my home too. haha
Hey, I think it was a difficult situation. Yeah, Erica was crying outside, but it was pretty obvious that Casey was really in a lot of pain. Erica was obviously uncomfortable and drunk at dinner so talking a lot about a bunch of crap that she obviously doesn't do. Sorry, but I would be really surprised if she meditated.
This is reality tv- lots of drama. You're fun and outgoing. I, personally, would be more interested in a show about Casey, Joey and you, finding a place together and working, dating, etc.
Chanel, you did nothing wrong. I grew up in Lake Success, and I totally "get" your crew. It's lovely you tried to be the peacemaker. Casey had a lot of pent up anger of a really heinous thing that was done to her. I don't care if it was 20 years ago, it was still a huge ego crushing, awful thing that happened to her. I totally agree with you, and it was ABSOLUTELY without a doubt, something Erica should own up to. She is singing quite a different tune now that the show aired. Last night she said she didn't care if she BLEEPED Casey's bfriend 5 times. Wow. And the fact it came up in the very same episode she did something similar to Joey. Her parents should be mortified they had such a promiscuous daughter. Your emotions sat with Casey, which anyone with an empathetic nature, would agree with. Figures the only way Erica knew how to reach out to her was with offering her wine...nice foreshadowing. And by the way, you are YOUNG! Wait and find your Prince Charming with no rush and no pressure. Start to freak out in your mid 30's or so, not now :)
I thought Casey was incredibly rude, despite having been hurt. She should have been civil and asked to speak with Erica after the dinner. And I agree with Avanti below. You should have checked on Erica immediately -- Casey's attack was uncalled for.
God, and yes, I spelled out the word GOD.. I need to ask, since there are 2 of you that actually are employed, what is it that you do for work? I need to know.
I was slightly annoyed to read Chanel's antisemitism comment, thinking to myself why do people think antisemitism lurks behind everything, and then I read the first sentence of your comment!!!!!! Why gratuitously insult someone's religious beliefs??????
A good host would never leave one of their guests outside upset regardless of whether they knew she was crying or not. She was clearly upset. You should have excused yourself and gone outside to check on her immediately.
Casey WAS holding a grudge for 10 years!! Have you apologized to every person you've ever hurt in your life, even as a teen? That's a pretty lofty thing to manage. Erica likely would have apologized (she asked Casey if she wanted wine and said she was trying to offer up an olive branch), but I wouldn't have apologized for sh*t if someone told me to shut up during a dinner party. Hell no. Casey set the tone for the night by doing that, and made the whole evening go South. Don't ever justify that behavior. What a child!
