As Kelly arrives we refer to her as ‘Tiger‘; a nickname François had given her over the summer and one mention of our eldest son is apparently the ideal excuse for Jill to tell a story that LuAnn had told to her, or in other words, to gossip. Or even to unnecessarily have a go at an almost-six-year-old for an incredibly innocuous move he’d made when meeting a guy the previous week. François didn’t misbehave that day, but far be it from Jill to let that fact interfere with the chance to trash our kids on TV again! I didn’t hear this exchange as I’d wandered off but on so many levels this seems so inappropriate. Anyway after Jill had her say we get to the heart of what she really wants to hear “Can I hear what the hell happened at Ramona’s house? That’s all I friggin’ want to know,” she ask Alex. Really? If what happened at that lunch is so important to Jill then why didn’t she just turn up – and besides I thought she had already "heard about that meal right after” it was over? I can honestly say, in my earshot at least, not only did the word ‘destroy’ not pass Bethenny’s lips but nether did the inference. So it’s on to Kelly’s big news where again Jill anoints herself as the town crier. First LuAnn and now Kelly; isn’t anyone allowed to tell their own story here? The flash back to the Season 1 Reunion Special speaks for itself and you all know from my altercation with Ramona and Mario in season 2, exactly what I think about hypocrites.
The newly divorced and single, Luann goes over to Jill’s to discover what’s in store for her on the romance front but the scene makes more of an impact when it moves to a discussion about the demise of the relationship between Bethenny and Jill. When the psychic says, “She’s talking to anybody who will listen to try to get them to hear her point, to try and let go of that guilt that’s taking place inside.” I do wonder if she was predicting her client’s future and if so she’s darn good! We then hear a 10 week old message from Bethenny but unfortunately it is cut off just as it seems we are about to get some meat and veg.
It’s Jason’s birthday celebration and they revisit the club where they met. This is a chance to see some of Jason’s friends and while imitation can be the sincerest form of flattery, it normally helps if the person knows you well enough to take the ribbing; at your new boyfriend’s birthday? Not so much. I do have to say that Bethenny didn’t sound too sincere when she said that she missed Jill.
