Spice Up Your 'Wives

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks there should be more bedazzled shimmying.

RHOM became a real family show last night. Seriously though, we met more family members in one episode than you could shake a family tree at. Let's go through and review who exactly was there, what drama they might have stirred up (as parents are so wont to do), and make some predictions in the process.

Lenny Hochstein's Parents

Lisa's in-laws were in town and she seemed...well not exactly over the moon. When Lenny told her he was going to be late coming home from work and would miss their arrival, you could catch a quick glimpse of fear written on her face. Luckily, her mother-in-law evidently loves Daysy, who was able to help Lisa ease the stress of impending judgment.

Judgment about what? You guessed it -- babies! Like any in-law, they're looking for grandchildren. This is a sore subject for Lisa as we've learned, and something tells me Lisa's been getting that request for grandkids since she and Lenny came back from the honeymoon.

Lisa throws a beautiful seder, inviting the ladies and their parents. Honestly I think the whole episode should have just followed the interactions of Elsa and all the Housewives parents, because you know there were some great conversations we missed there. Maybe I'm biased, but come on, you know you wanted more of that.

However one of my favorite parts of the whole episode was Lisa's toast to America. I was hoping for some fireworks at the end, but even without it was still perhaps the most patriotic moment in Housewives history.

Prediction: Much like Joanna, we're hoping the next speech Lisa makes is just an announcement is that she's pregnant.
