Nightswimming

Episode 14: Bravotv.com's Editor ponders topless swimming, detective work, and Xanax.

Welcome back St. Barths babies. Unlike, LuAnn I am not in "clampdown mode" and I'm ready to talk about every topless, Xanax-suggested, Vassar-attending moment of Part 2 of the St. Barths debacle. Jumping right in. . .

Mousetrap
We open with LuAnn and Tomas keeping especially mum about the late night activities at the villa. However, Ramona Singer leaves no stone unturned and she is going to get right to the bottom of this situation. . .

Ramona doesn't care who came to the villa. It could have been Tomas' double or a two-legged pig or any bizarre creature, animal, vegetable, or mineral. Of course that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to know who or which it was.

Thankfully the talk quickly turns to more fun manners that exposes -- like ménage a seven. Ramona saying “Sure” to the proposition really thrilled me. I hope that is how she reacts to any sexual proposition.

Of course, everyone is falling right into Tomas’ goatee-set trap. Carole and Sonja were swoon-city when he was talking about his “Bridgette Bardot.” But in the end, the mating ritual resulted in Sonja getting snared -- and engaging in something that poor Heather had the unfortunate accident of witnessing. I’d love to put the proposition to Heather and see which she would have preferred walking into: Sonja and Tomas "buttf—king" (Carole’s word!) or the glass wall.

Mojo Rising
Next the ladies boarded a boat for Ramona day. Unsurprisingly, Ramona was taking lots of photos, but surprisingly her former foe was allowed to be in them -– Heather! Yes, as Sonja so eloquently remarked, “Heather is allowed to be in the vacation pictures.” The vacation mojo has taken effect and everyone is getting along. Ramona is of course worried that this will be disturbed by the arrival of Aviva and Reid, but we’ll have to wait and see. Until then the ladies are lounging on their noodles and instructing the boat crew to create some shade whilst they eat.

Meanwhile, Aviva is buried deep into her headphones listening to the soothing sounds of Stevie Wonder and Chaka Khan. Thankfully the plane touches down without incident, so the St. Barths mojo seems to be working in her way as well. . .for now.

Because you see, in a rental office mere miles away, Ramona and Sonja are just keeping their options open. You can never be too sure.

Wet Noodles
Back at the Villa, Ramona and Sonja are swimming topless. As Ramona mentions, there’s plenty of water in the Caribbean so whether you’ve already showered or not, all are welcome in the pool. Even Aviva and Reid, who arrive just as the ladies are enjoying their soak.

The ladies all greet Aviva and Reid, except for the topless twosome. Reid quickly excuses himself to get some work done upstairs. Sonja is relieved he’s not going to be the albatross of the trip and is ready to move forward.

Unfortunately that zen like feeling does not last for long. As the ladies are giving the 411 to Aviva things very quickly turn. Aviva wants to know what Ramona really thinks about Reid being there. She wants everyone to hug Reid and profusely thank him for depositing her in St. Barths. And that didn’t go especially well.And thus, the white trash gauntlet was thrown. Aviva wants Reid to feel welcome at ticker tape parade levels, and this house is not providing that sort of welcome. Carole, desperate to get to Russ' rehearsal, looks a bit lost in the entire matter. Everyone is threatening to leave, but who will go? How can Sonja get more wine from the magical spigot when she’s trapped in the bathroom?!? Where is the party for Aviva and Reid?!?

Eventually, Sonja decides to take the Kelly/petting approach with Aviva. The touch/feel thing could smooth the situation over. Miss Diplomat (LuAnn) didn't diplomat s--t and now they have to see if hugs can salvage the vacation. Well Sonja tried, and for that matter Carole tried too. Ramona tried by offering her whatever type of support and tears could put things back on track. There is some semblance of a move forward, with the hugging doing temporary magic, but now Sonja is feeling jilted. She's not going to apologize. She’s hurt. She doesn’t need new friends if this is what they are like. She has turned the corner!

And now to dinner!

Light and Fun
And so dinner! Ramona quickly aligns herself with her new BFF Heather and attempts to rearrange the tables into a more conducive to not-having-a-knockdown-dragout arrangement and toasts to fun! Fun, fun, fun! Aviva excuses herself for the restroom, giving Ramona and Sonja a chance to mention that Aviva’s venom is still in their system. We don't hear people say venom enough on this show. Lord knows it goes around enough that we should be constantly looking for antidotes. Anyway, it appears no amount of tequila or toast is going to bring a restorative calm to this group.

Add to that Aviva is feeling less than apologetic about her word choice, so we’re left to see next week if they can make it work or if Ramona and Sonja can properly Google white trash. What did you think of Aviva’s big entrance? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Sonja: A Fun Night With a Younger Man Never Hurt Anyone

Sonja thinks she may have found this season's pot stirrer and wonders if Ramona is really happy.

Welcome back to the bitches who brunch!
I’m disappointed to see that the girls are being vile and continuing to attack me and claim that I do not have legitimate business deals going on. Especially to Bethenny, who has not seen us frequently since she had little Bryn. Gawd forbid Bethenny believes this horse sh--. Luann, Kristen, Heather, and Carole all claimed that I am not really a businesswoman, that all of my ideas are not coming to fruition, that I don’t work every day, and that I didn’t make the toaster oven. That should get a few laughs from those who know. But even if I was not successful and were delusional, as the girls say in Bethanny’s kitchen, what kind of friends badmouth another friend like that? Right now I need friends who are going to support me. It also upset me that the other women said that I was drinking too much at Luann’s housewarming party! The women know that I wasn’t drunk that night, and I’m surprised that Heather would try to allege that I went from cider to beer to drunk. I didn’t stay to party with Heather and Luann and try to keep up with them. I left to go to Ramona’s, where I was a guest. I am running my businesses and raising my daughter, and I can’t afford to have that kind of toxicity in my life, especially with investors involved. I hope that with the release of my fashion and jewelry line that the girls will change their tune and accept that I am and have always been an independent businesswoman. Sometimes I think they just want to keep me where I was. That was comfortable for them. You don’t see me running around looking for a new husband to take care of me. I married my ex-husband because I loved him. BTW, the gardener gave me his number to meet him out after, but I was a good girl and went home.

It seems like Heather has decided to become the new meddler in the group. This should prove to be interesting. While I am very grateful that she was willing to help me with my toaster oven shoot and the box mockup, I would appreciate it if she stopped getting involved in my business affairs. We mutually agreed to that after that last experience! Heather then went on to try to tell Bethenny how to handle Ramona when Bethenny has known Ramona for so much longer than Heather! This reminded me of when Heather tried to get in between Luann and Ramona during Season 4. She also got in between Carole’s argument with Aviva. In the preview we see that Heather can’t stop herself from getting into the other girl’s business, and then she tries to tell Bethenny to apologize to Kristen! We have yet to see Heather fight one of my fights! I hope that Heather gets the hint and lays off telling the rest of us what to do.

I thought that the whole brunching situation was ridiculous, even though I adore going to 75 Main and seeing my friend Zach Erdem. I don’t understand why we all couldn’t have just had brunch together. I think if everyone was just a little more relaxed, we would all have a better time, and we wouldn’t fight about these silly things. Life is too short to worry about who’s HOSTING the brunch! As long as we are getting Bloody Marys, everyone should be happy! Heather makes the best Bloody Marys! Why for Gawd's sake are we not following her to brunch?!

I am so glad that the girls and I got to have a fun night out at Beautique like it used to be! There was no drama, no fighting, just girls having a good time and not judging each other. I agree with Bethenny that it was odd that Luann didn’t tell her that Kelly was coming, but I’m glad that they were able to move on and not let one bad moment ruin everyone’s night. Maybe this was Lu trying to patch them up? We have seen Lu and Ramona do a 360. Lu and Bethenny did a 360. Ramona was having a good time and seemed like she was adjusting well to being single! I know that Ramona is going to be OK, especially if she has the support of all of her single, fabulous girlfriends, and there are many. I still find it strange that Ramona got upset with me saying she was divorcing when she says she is single over and over. Could she be pretending to be happy single? Trying to prove something? I still remember that psychic telling her Mario was cheating. It was so upsetting, I started crying for Ramona.

I am so glad that I met Dominik, and I had a lot of fun with him, but I am definitely not looking to be in a relationship with a younger man right now. I had a young boyfriend last year! At this time in my life, I am looking for a man who is more established and can be a long-term partner--and closer to my age. Especially now that I have ducks lined up, and I’m seeing the trees through the forest. I have not been this happy in some time.

But one fun night with a younger man never hurt anyone. Tune in to see if this is a one-nighter or not! The women are saying a lot of nasty things about me, but no one is trying to say that Sonja Morgan doesn’t know how to have a good time! No matter what happens, I am always the straw the stirs the drink. Lu and Heather drag me around like an old suitcase, so you know they are not worried about me at all. They are just too darn encouraging for that to be true. I guess I need to give my girlfriends more attention once I am over the hurdle of my lawsuit, so they feel secure in our friendship. We have seen LuAnn duke it out with Ramona over my time spent between them. Now we see Ramona freaking on Bethenny over her time with me. I guess I’ll just be the fire hydrant!
