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.
