LuAnn explains why she declined Ramona's invite, and is baffled by Kelly's behavior on the trip!

When Ramona invited me to join her on the St. John trip, I declined so that I could be with Victoria on her birthday. When Jill mentioned over drinks that she was considering going anyway and surprising the girls, I cautioned her again not to go. The incessant bickering between the girls was incredibly rude to Ramona. Now I understand why Ramona went overboard with the Pinot Grigio.

As for whether Bethenny is a chef versus a cook, the first time I met her, she was in the kitchen cooking for one of my best friends and I can vouch that she was hired as a chef. She may not work in a restaurant, but she is a chef nonetheless and it looked like she put a lot of effort into the dinner she made for the girls.

I encouraged Kelly to pass on this trip because I knew that she couldn’t defend herself. I’m still baffled by how antagonistic she was at the dinner party. I think that Kelly may have had other issues going on at home that pushed her over the emotional edge. Kelly’s lack of empathy makes it hard for her to be a good girlfriend. After watching this episode, I can honestly say, I’m glad I stayed home! I don’t think anyone could have helped Kelly in this situation.
