I hope you had a few hundred boxes of tissues on hand for this episode of RHOM, because nearly every scene involved at least one person crying. I guess that's what happens when you go to a tropical island and the weather's bad -- you drink a lot and spill a lot of beer tears. So let's reflect on the biggest tear-jerkers and see if we can make any predictions.
Lisa finds herself having a tete-a-tete with Lea, the conversation turns to Lisa's fertility issues. (I'm guessing that fierce head wrap of Lea's was what made Lisa open up. I mean. it takes a strong woman to pull that off.)
Lea gives her some solid advice that she needs to stop stressing out and keep trying. Figure out how to do as much as you can, but at the same time, still manage to enjoy your life and what you do have.
Plus, I don't know why Lisa is so worried about she and Lenny being old when they finally do have kids. He's a plastic surgeon, they'll always look youthful!
Prediction: I'll go with Lea Black on this one and say that Lisa will definitely be a mom one day.Later we see Karent bedridden and very blue. No, not because all the ladies showed her an article claiming her boyfriend was cheating, but because her father was having a medical issue at home. And did we mention the day before was his 81st birthday?
As if that isn't stressful enough, there's no flight off the island because of the weather, so Karent can't even leave to be with him. So stuck on an island with people waving a story about your cheating boyfriend around while your 81-year-old father is in the hospital -- it's a wonder she isn't throwing on a bathing suit and just swimming back to Miami.
Of course though all of the women were sympathetic to her situation, because how could your heart not break for someone with an ailing parent?
Prediction: It appears that seeing the softer side of Karent might have finally softened the ladies' opinion of her. Will friendship finally bloom?The Marysol/Lea argument somehow finds new life and is revived at dinner.
Side Note: How many turbans/head scarves did Lea pack for this trip? Is this the new Housewives fashion statement a la one shoulder reunion dresses?
There were a few new developments to the gala debacle drama involving Lil Wayne and something about Pharell being hounded by ladies. But it all still boils down to "you did a bad job"/"no I didn't".
Somehow it would seem that they've talked it out to the point where they can, really truly move past it this time. I'm unclear how we got there, but hey, let's roll with it because it's the holiday season!
Which leads to -- surprise! -- more tears! At this point the emotional roller coaster that is this episode has spun us around so much that I think it may be an opportune time to grab a glass of wine and play All I Want for Christmas is You. Feel better? Great!
Prediction: I seriously hope that this is the last time we'll hear gala, Lea, and Marysol all in the same sentence.Next week is the season finale! Will Karent and Rodolfo call it quits?
