In this episode, you'll see why the French word boudoir means "private bedroom"! Some aspects of our personal lives are meant to stay that way.
I felt uncomfortable that "Ramario" and "Silex" decided to share their intimate moments with the viewers. On the other hand, I do think that couples need to make an effort to please each other and keep it sexy -- but this is a great example as to why they should do it in private.
How many times will Cindy get to ride a camel? Sonja should have thought of that before cropping Cindy out. I think the camel pictures are a great memory for all of us to share.
I was surprised to hear of Sonja's bankruptcy matters, and I can imagine how stressful it was for her to go through something like this in the public eye. I don't think that she had an obligation to share her personal financial matters with me, but I'm glad she's allowing us to give her moral support during this tough time.
The happiness on my face was evident when I saw Jacques after our Moroccan trip! He makes me smile and laugh and I missed him very much. I always say, when one door closes another opens, and I'm grateful to have Jacques in my life.
Luann, Please do not absorb the negativety and the bad comments below; I am very impressed with how you handled yourself at the Reunion. Very Very classy. Cindy, on the otherhand, looked like she was about to pull a 'Teresa' from NJ and grab somebody's throat! What a disgrace.
a big fan of yours!
Dear LuAnn, let the haters hate. You doll are the star of the show! Your talent is amazing and I think there are some jealous ones out there. What I love about you is that you fun side really came out after your divorce. You even look much younger and glamorous now. You try new things without fear and you go for it countess. I truly adore you.
Oh my!! All my favorite housewives turned out to be awful after a few seasons: LuAnn you were my favorite until last season when you solely butted in Jill's friendship with Bethenny and I hold YOU responsible for keeping stirring the pot last season. It's hilarious that you tried to "teach" Alex to stay out of other people's business when you clearly LOVE all the drama around you--I guess it makes you feel superior. Utterly disappointing and above all, declasse....
OMG.....So you should let Jill and Ramona be "BIG GIRLS" and handle their problems on their own......Sersiously....Alex ASKED YOU to speak in private and you insisted she do it in front of everyone.....You need to stay out of Jill's business...she lost a awesome friend in Bethanny and I BLAME YOU.....How many times did we see Bethanny Try to reach out to Jill and (with you right by her side) while on the phone with Bethanny she was shut down! So to hear you and Jill blame Bethanny is Crazy.....maybe your drinking the water that Kelly Drinks.....You have NO CLASS....you talk about people's appearance and what they are wearing ....go back to the cabinet you came out of "witch" Seriously is that in your book of class darling? MIND YOUR BUSINESS!!! Maybe you just want jill to be friends with you Only.....cause your doing a great job getting her to lose the friends she has! Jealous Much! Maybe Bethany and Ramona are becoming to successful for you and you don't want to look like less compared to them....I mean What do you do for money?
LuAnn, WHat grade did you get in English/Grammar darling? You need to learn when to use I and when to use Me correctly when speaking..... It is improper to say "He gave it to Ramona and I." And you wrote a book on class? Class also incorporates speaking the English language properly- darling.
Simply put, I think you have pushed Alex away because she is from Brooklyn and not the upper east side? I usually think you are even and fair, but you are very unfair to Alex. It is rude, darling.
I do agree, Alex's approach was "off" at the riad, but when back in NY, she tried, although not well, to explain her thought process......You never let her finish a sentence ...at one point asking her if "she was the teacher". You have pompously written a book, "instructing " people on manners........honestly Luann, you should read your own book, and given the women a chance to finish her thought then responded.......you lost a lot of points with me......get over yourself!
So sorry that you have to be a bully to get your point across. Not pretty. It didn't make you look smarter, or more righteous than Alex....it just made you look more nasty. Sorry that you have turned into that kind of person since the 1st couple of seasons. It makes you look desperate for Jill's approval.
Luann...I find you declasse. You constantly misuse the words "me" and "I". How sad that you waste your minutes being a pretentious snob. What a bore.
I think Luann can dish it all,but not well at taking it.She has had no problem in butting in Jill's business.In actuality,she was the major reason Jill and Bethany could not converse at Romona's apartment.I believe things would have turned out totally different had Luann stayed out of it.Now she wants to but in Jill's and Romona's beeswax yet, when Alex steps in,Luann acts as if Alex is being meddling? WOW,how about the pot calling the kettle black.Maybe Alex was evening out the playing field.No gang up's on her watch.......
Luann....I find you declasse. You constantly misuse the words "me" and "I". How sad that you waste your minutes being a pretentious snob.
I felt compelled to write after watching the last show from Morocco. First of all, Alex asked to speak to you AFTER your henna tattoo. It was YOU who persisted. You were so rude and arrogant, and certainly did your best to embarrass her. She was trying to advocate for a friend...I recall you doing the same thing for Jill when Ramona set up the meeting at her apt. b/t her and Bethenny. At the dinner table, you were again so rude to Alex..you acted like she committed some type of crime because she was late for dinner. She obviously was not aware of the time you had arranged. There is a nice way to say something, and you, above all others should know that.
Luann untill this season I so loved you however now it seems as if you think you and Jill are the only ones with class or are ever right Im so dissapointed in you and Jill you talk about class well it seems listeing to others and not talking badly behind ones back would be classy also please remember you too are human and not above anyone as it seems you tend to think please go back to your roots and take a good look at yourself before talking about others.
Are you deliberately changing the actual events of what happened? Alex asked you repeatedly to speak in private and all of you told her to come back and say it in front of everyone. And then wouldn't let her speak. News flash.....it's not classy to speak over people. And then telling her to mind her own business?! You first! Thats all you've been doing is butting into other people's business. You did it with Bethenny and Jill and now with Ramona and Jill. And the way you spoke with Alex was disgusting.....you have no respect for others. I was livid after watching that. Regardless of how I feel about Alex, when I am having a discussion with someone, I LISTEN, and then speak. It's simple common courtesy.
LuAnn......YOU are so right...Alex needs to stop being a trouble maker..becasue that is what she is..NOT a peace maker. How about she concentrate on something else. I would have told her the same thing...mind your own business..grow the hell up...and YES your shoes are hideous! LOL
Cheers LuAnn, I love that you have everyone pegged. And that you don't mind telling people like Alex they are without class. You have come into your own and are truly showing your integrity. So happy for your new found full life. The face-off with Alex was understandibly high pressure, we all have 20/20 hindsight in those situations. You did the best you could with someone who has no idea how to express herself...frustrating.
LuAnn, You really went over the top in the trip to Morocco. It was clear you did it to try to once again hold yourself "above" everyone else. It was your territory you were in control. Instead of trying to unite the group, you used it as an opportunity to pander to others' weaknesses to shore up your own self-esteem. The stress of the trip showed your true colors. You are as catty and classless as the rest of the cast members. Shame on you!
You have shown your true self to the world of viewers who watch the show. This is like a repeat of a broken friendship between Bethenny and Jill. You were there to make sure they did not have the chance to make up. Now, you are doing it to Jill and Ramona. The least you could do to show class is to listen but instead you chose the childish way of brushing Alex off. This is like a child closing their ears with parents.
Luann, You were rude again to Alex, you never let her speak and acted as if she had nothing valid to say. Even if you didnt agree with her she was polite and you were the ruuuuude one. This haughty attitude umpresses some obviously, but many of us see the true mean girl behind your facade.
LuAnn, While Alex may not the best with her timing, she did make every attempt to speak with you privately. But instead of leading by example, you thought it better to play a "power role." Who do you think you are? You really should read up on your own book and return the counterfeit "class" you tend to wear on your shoulder like a cheap designer bag. I find you incredibly condescending, brash and distasteful. I know school children with more class and better diplomatic skills. Perhaps your "title" ought to be stripped in light of your apparent inability to carry such an honor with true style and grace.
Ps: You would do well to invite Caroline from the New Jersey cast to coach you on the finer points of true leadership.
those who actually have class don't have to tell everyone they meet that they have it, let alone write a book or sing about it. class is all about how you behave and manners were created to make everyone comfortable. while i believe making peace is your goal, you have appointed yourself the judge of who needs to be corrected and when. you take no prisoners nor listen to any other opinion which more often than not creates problems more than eases them. back down, listen and look up the word "gracious" you'll get much better results.
At the reunion, please allow others to speak. You will get a turn to speak as well, but only chaos results when people speak over one another, raise their voices, and storm out of a room/restaurant. Listening is every bit as important as speaking. It's also good manners.
I have never commented before, however, if I had to choose one Housewife who I believe to be the one who instigates the most drama it has to be simply "you". Messenger, my back end, you are always the Messenger and love dishing it on with a snub nosed sense of social uplifting. You start the fires and then try to come back around to be the extinguisher so all believe you are what you simply are not. Open your eyes girl as you need to see for yourself how ridiculous you come across as well.
As we will be catching each other throughout the summer the one thing I hope is that you never make any comments to me about how people act as I will no longer let you deviate from your oh so informative book.
Luann, I agree with Alex. You come off so condescending and never allowed Alex the chance to tell you how she felt. You claim to be classy but you threw in a few digs that were completely inappropriate, I think an apology is in order. It is very nice to see you interact with Jacques, that is the Luann I like to watch.
I don't understand your need to run away from accepting your mistakes. Perhaps some help is needed in this area. I thought it was a shame you never even had a chance to have a nice coffee in your good friend's restaurant. Hopefully you will come back and give it another try since you are so very close with the owner.
I recall Alex requesting to speak with you after your henna session. Why did you feel the need to call her names? You try too hard darling!
I AGREE WITH LUANN 100%! All of the ladies have achieved a certain level of success, and they did it WITHOUT Alex having to go to bat for them! So, I don't know why feels like they need her to do it now! I don't know why she believes she is CHIEF COMMUNICATOR and the world would only understand her. If Alex wouldn't get in the middle of everyone's business there would be no reason to talk to someone about how they treated her. She shouldn't have been in the mix in the first place. Alex has become a camera whore at best and as far as I am concerned she creates situations where a side-bar conversation is necessary. Not realizing that no one wants to talk to her! Alex has graduated from Annoying to completely getting on my nerves!
Wow, All you women on the show have gotten big big heads. Use to like you but you have become a snoot. You are no better than any other person.
I love this show. Very entertaining, and mostly due to creative editing and the housewives playing up situations for the sake of television.
But no creative editing in the world could create your behaviour on this episode. You must listen more. I thought you were unspeakably rude to Alex when she attempted to have a rational, albeit inarticulate, discussion with you. Even if you don't agree or appreciate what someone is trying to say, let them speak their mind and wait your turn to speak. You don't need to be a countess to understand this basic piece of etiquette. Children learn this in kindergarten.
I do enjoy you on this show generally, but your behaviour of late has made me acutely uncomfortable.
I like LuAnn, but her background for making decrees about manners, etc.?? Somebody needs to fill me in here...
How do you not see that you run interference on behalf of Jill to Ramona, but you criticize Alex for doing the same thing?? Alex is just doing to you what you do to Ramona ALL the time... And the way you treated Alex when she wanted to talk with you both times--atrocious! Why don't you stop and listen before just dismissing what she has to say?
I've been a fan of yours since day one. However, you can be very demeaning and condescending. Although you wrote a book on etiquette; I think you need a refresher course.
Jeanette Monmouth County NJ housewife
dont let these people make you think you need to change you you are very classy but when someone is trashy or classless you have to respond and you did you were vocal not classless people need to get that straight
:uAnn while I find you to be one of the most interesting and intelligent housewives, I wish you had shown Alex a bit more mercy. Alex's friendship with Ramona is totally misguided and her weaknesses in communication are well apparent. She has obviously given up on being the most popular housewife and instead believes fighting other people's battles will win her friends. I just wish someone of your class would see her weaknesses and pity her for it.
Luann, you are my favorite! I love your witty one liners. You are one classy lady and you radiate of grace. You handled Alex the way she needed to be handled. Alex is way to theatrical for my taste. She is too much in your face. The dinner scene in morrocco was priceless. You rock!
You were totally out of line with Alex, and why are you trying to be the new Bethenny? You seem very cutting and rude to me, not at all funny. You also need to let go of the personal vendetta against Ramona.
LuAnn, what were those earrings in the showdown scene? I want a pair. And bu the way, you looked gorgeous in this sit down affair--who cares what you said, you looked best!!!
Luann, Regarding your meeting w/Alex. A class act always has manners and respect toward others. Even if one is disrespected she should still take the high road.
Hi Luann You are one of my favorite housewives, Alex on the other hand well, I will keep my comment to myself,I agree with you on her behavior the way she came down the stairway to confort you, it was scary to say the least, she has no class maybe you should give her a copy of your book. ps glad to see you happy
Luann, I enjoy watching you on Housewives, but you need to remember you are not perfect and need to listen more when someone is talking to you about something that is bothering them. The way you approach some of the others on the show is very affending. Try to be nicer or more understanding the way you approach your fellow women.
LuAnn, I have lost all the respect I once had for you. You broke at least 5 rules of your own etiquette. Alex had the facts correct. You did not.
I'm sorry but I have to say the more I watch Luann, the more I dislike her. I am so tired of this "class" issue. I don't find her at all sophisticated as she wants us to believe. Obviously many views feel the same as they voted for Alex. Luann you need to be real and stop the acting. You are NOT better than others.
I bought your book foolishly! You behavior is like buying a cook book from a author who burns every meal.
I want a refund- I would gladly donate the return funds for a "kitty" of cash to pay for your "class" classes.
You continue to look like a fool.........and want to justify your silly reasons for doing so.
