This episode kicks off with LuAnn arrive at a house, and let’s start with a little quiz. Just before we see LuAnn’s scene indicator you see the backs of two people walking the streets of SoHo; any idea who they are? So LuAnn arrives at the residence of RHONYC#7, Sonja Morgan to ask her to donate some clothes for the SoHo Partnership’s new store. We quickly learn that Sonja and Kelly have had a man in common and with that little pertinent background where straight off into the introduction of just who is Sonja. All I can say is welcome, Sonja! You’re joining a wild ride and just somehow I am pretty confident you’re going to handle it well. Back sitting down with LuAnn and Sonja, we get to hear that she names her closets after various states of the USA, see an elevator stuffed full of clothes and then Sonja offers to host the ‘Cocktails and Couture’ event.
Bobby joins Jill for a pizza slice, and in voiceover we hear Jill complain again about being sabotaged and ambushed. This presumably is only OK when you’re the one setting it up, as she did to Bethenny with Kelly last year. Bobby had read the letter from Bethenny and gave Jill some good and sage advice; perhaps he should have had a credit on the Kamen/Wexler/Zarin book?
Bethenny’s down at South Street Seaport handing out a new healthy sandwich, and is joined by Alex where again Alex acts as a sounding -board; a skill she has in abundance. Either Bethenny’s wearing the same clothes twice or she’s just come from the tête-à-tête with Jill. She’s clearly still shell shocked by Jill’s dismissal of her and at LuAnn’s continual meddling. What’s interesting about this is that some 7 months after all this played out during filming, Jill seems to finally getting to realize the error of her ways and is now giving media interviews where she seems to want to mend fences with Bethenny. I suppose watching yourself on TV is the ultimate in taking a good hard look at yourself in a mirror.
Jill and LuAnn meet for a quiet stroll in Central Park and I must say it does irk me when I hear the constant reference to the titles of Count and Countess as being ‘Royalty.' Irrespective of whether or not these titles have any meaning here in the USA, being a Count indicates that you’re a part of the Nobility not Royalty. And with that, let’s take a walk in the park. After a quick lesson from Jill on atonement we then, for the 1600th time, learn that LuAnn was married for 16 years. Did you get that! ;-) Seemingly the psychic was well briefed as not only did she know so much about Bethenny and Jill but LuAnn is now seeing a man who name starts with J.
