Simon van Kempen shares his thoughts on this week's episode!

Back at the Lokah party, we find that Ramona ran off to locate Kelly and after about 30 seconds of small talk we discover that she & Mario are planning to have dinner that night with Jill & Bobby. In answer to a question from Kelly Ramona states that they’re not really good friends with J&B. Either Jill must have heard this exchange or Ramona decided not to have dinner with people who aren’t classified as good friends as that night Alex & I had dinner with Jill & Bobby (who, I am delighted to say, have become good friends).

Jill & Bobby arrive, Alex & I continue to sweat as the A/C couldn’t handle the combination of the outside temperature and the masses of people and then we get a quick continuation of the tennis partner battle between Mario & Jill. One thing to note from these scenes is that Bethenny was the only missing ‘wife’ and from memory she was in LA and couldn’t make it.

Finally 5 episodes in we get to see Kelly in her home environment with her two dogs and two daughters as she invites LuAnn over for a cooking lesson. Yes, we know she likes incredible talented people but she needs to stop saying it every episode she’s in. (Oh & btw on her girls’ names – I see nothing wrong with them myself and in NYC there’s every name from every country under the sun, so no name is strange). And lastly, LuAnn didn’t speak with a mouthful of food – again - did she?

Avery & Ramona go shoe shopping with dog in tow, and giving Ramona her due Avery does seem a very well adjusted young teenager. Ramona has to be somewhat responsible for that and although she’s hardly my #1 fan, I’m the first to give credit when it’s due and in this case it is.
