Where does Bravotv.com's Associate Editor land in the "pecking order"? She ponders such questions and the episode's other highlights.

Hello my little Bravo birds. What's clucking?

What a tangled nest we weave/build? It 'twas a week of tete-a-tetes. Everyone was trying to air their grievances this week -- though it didn't always work out (did you see Ramona's dine and dash?). And like Jill's tiny, clip-on koala, sometimes the ladies came back together, but sometimes like Sonja's toaster oven sole, the friendships shriveled up to a smaller size.

The Queens of Hearts and Also Toaster Ovens

You know who's good at baseball? Sonja Morgan! She might not be the greatest hitter, or a fastest runner, but she can throw a pitch while wearing an amazingly short skirt and picking up Mr. January. If this was the World Series of Love Sonja would take the pennant (baseball terms!).

But not only is she a star athlete flirt, she's a master chef. Finally we see Sonja making a toaster oven meal worthy of The Countess. And she went all in, cooking up some delicious sole meuniere. I adore her ability to be the Julia Child of toaster ovens, but even more I adored LuAnn's constant questioning of her order of operations. Are you going to cut the tips off of that asparagus or what Sonja?
