A Meeting of the Mystics - Ep 9

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor needs more Norman Baker.

Here we are in a post nips-plosion world. After Sunday's episode, we're kind of left in a "where do we go from here?" state. And honestly I don't know. Can you really ever reconcile with someone you've bitch slapped? Unclear.

And while you were probably pondering that, I imagine you were also wondering how we can continue the season without your new favorite character, the red broom. I miss that broom too, but fate was kind by sending us Norman Baker A.K.A. the cutest musical/magical little man I've ever seen. He does that thing where you play the edge of cups full of water (a la Sandra Bullock in Miss Congeniality), sports a mystic chain, and chants the vowels to spread good energy. This is my kind of magician.

Lea wisely brings him in to promote good vibes at the gala venue, to bless the auction items, and to meet with the other ladies in the hopes of keeping them civil at the big event. After the lingerie party debacle this seems like wishful thinking, but hey, desperate times...

Prediction: Not so much a prediction, but a wish -- that Lea just keeps Norman by her side so he can chant through the rest of the season with us. Then Norman meets Elsa and it is an EXPLOSION of mystical energies. Elsa turns the table on Norman and decides to read him. To get an Elsa reading however, she requires the following:

1. That you be shoe-less
2. You grab each other's wrists
3. You remain silent

And with that they "elevate." Elsa has a spasm, speaks with...something, and then tells Norman that his soul is combined with someone else's soul. What this means is unclear, but it was a powerful meeting of the mediums, that much is obvious.

Prediction: Could it be that the other soul was that of the red broom's?!

Marysol updates us on Philippe during her chat with Ana. Evidently there was an incident that started with sake and led to her staying the night at his place. Needless to say, it would seem that they're not quite over each other yet. Also needless to say, too much sake leads to big mistakes.

Prediction: I'm not seeing a ski-lift vow renewal in Marysol's future, it looks like she really does want to move on.

And then we're at the much-talked-about gala. Mario Lopez, Queen Latifah, and (yet again) Joe Francis. Somehow Adriana and Joanna manage to keep their distance, even though they're seated at neighboring tables. And while they may not have exchanged insults, that didn't stop some serious trash talking. Adriana really didn't hold back at her table...

Prediction: This feud is going to get worse before it gets better, that much is clear.
Next week we've got a Miami Housewives summit to try and solve all the ladies' issues. Something tells me that won't end well (unless maybe Norman mediates).
