Haus of Bravo

From fine art to friendship bracelets, this week's entry covers all the pop culture bases of this week's Real Housewives-themed episode.

Dec 14, 2010

We left you all to your own devices last week, so obviously this week had to be a doozie. And return with a vengeance we did, bringing the Real Housewives of Orange County and New Jersey along for the ride.

And what a gift from the Magi (or other non-religious figure), it was!

The House of Emerald was faced with a Sophie's Choice. Which ladies do you choose? The blonde and bright (though difficult in their own ways) ladies of the OC? Or the darker-side of the coin: the personality fueled New Jersey ladies.

In the always apt words of Jurassic Park, "life finds a way," and fate had to work its magic so that Calvin and Teresa ended up together.

The House of Nami was paired with the Jersey Girls, while Emerald celebrated Orange County with champagne wishes and demure dreams.

Once upon a time, I wore a fantastic champagne colored dress to a formal, and it was probably the most fantastic gown I’ve ever worn in my entire life. I bought it at the Honeymoon Bungalow in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, so you know it was the pinnacle of style and sophistication. I was a stone cold fox in a Grecian top, and that dress worked, let me tell you. It was a blessed evening of dancing, crushes realized, and looking really, really hot.
