Amen to That
Mario talks about the "Countless Cougar" in action, and the useless bickering between the Housewives.
A couple of episodes have passed since the last time I blogged. Frankly I was getting tired of watching the train wreck of Jill, LuAnn and Kelly. I kept hoping that we could move on and get past all this useless fighting and Jillously. But it just keeps coming. This week we begin at Sonja’s party where LuAnn immediately begins to criticize Alex for the message she gave Jill. Of course as soon as she speaks her mind she waltzes off as there is no need to hear what Alex has to say since it does not matter to her.
Next we see Jill and Bobby arrive. Since I am in the jewelry business I always like to see what pieces the women are wearing. I thought LuAnn had the worst taste in jewelry - she arrived wearing the piece she has worn several times, that one looks like she has a clock around her neck like the guy on that TV show Flavor of Love. Leave it to Jill to trump her with what looked like a tarantula around her neck.
Bobby decides to confront Alex and extract an apology from her, citing it was not even her fight, but Bethenny's. Bobby, take off those tinted glasses and get a good look at your wife as she is the one who should be apologizing to everyone. At the very least you should try and tell her to keep her stupid thoughts to herself. In any case, Alex tries to talk to Jill and of course she is not in the mood because she does not have her notes and so the drama continues.
Next we see a touching scene between Ramona and Bethenny, who is going to visit her dying father. Ramona advises her to reach closure with her Dad. I am glad that Bethenny was able to have that opportunity, as Ramona went through the same experience with her father. Thank God they were both able to spend time with their fathers, because once a parent is gone you will never have another opportunity to reach out, and you'll only be left with regrets.
Now we get to see the Countless Cougar in action at Kelly's event. I thought she had a young French boyfriend as she had told us in an earlier episode. I guess she’s having too much fun and is playing the field instead. As for Kelly, she has now added "Yeaaa" to her "Hiiiii!" and of course "like" is her favorite word. Have you noticed that Jill is starting to do the "Hiiiii!" thing as well?!
So how tough are teenage daughters on their mothers? Avery knows what she likes and tells it the way she sees it, just like her mother. I always marvel at the way they interact. She is her mother's harshest critic. I guess it comes with being 15.
At the luncheon with Ramona and Sonja, Jill is asked to be part of the trip that Ramona has planned to the Caribbean before the renewal of our vows. It is pretty clear how Jill feels about going and during her interview she comments about on how difficult being married to Ramona must be. Jill, you should be so fortunate to have a marriage like we do. I wonder how happy you would feel if Bobby were to cut off your credit cards.
Finally we come to the final confrontation of the show and once again Jill is at the epicenter. All I can say is the only truthful and intelligent thing Jill says in the entire episode was, "Alex, you are a better person than me." Amen to that.
