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!

The Countess: Sonja and I Are on the Outs

LuAnn reveals that her relationship with Sonja is still broken, and dishes on a possible new dance single.

Here we are, the end of another great Season! Personally for me, I'm so grateful to Bravo for giving me the opportunity to share my life and lessons learned once again with you!

The double date I had with Carole did look worse than it actually was. We all had a great time talking about the realities of dating these days and Carole opened herself up to Nick who was good looking, but is clearly not into having a serious relationship -- to put it kindly. I've grown very fond of Carole and think she's a great girl who has plenty of opportunities to date, but at the end of the day, she really likes being independent! Plus, it's hard to find a good man these days!

When Carole first started the show she thought she really knew me and had judged me! The show is just a small glimpse into my life as there are so many lives to follow. I'm not surprised she had preconceived notions about me. It's hard to get to know someone well through Housewives! Since then, we've spent more time together and have gotten a lot closer.

Speaking of being close. . .Carole and Heather are tight! I understand why Heather came to Carole's defense towards Aviva -- that's what you do when you're a true friend! I would prefer she doesn't say MF, but that's what I like about Heather. . .She's GANGSTA CHIC! (maybe that's my new dance single. . .LOL). She really doesn't care what people think. I thought Aviva said enough to Carole that was hurtful, so throwing out the age comment was really uncalled for!

I admire Heather. She has two beautiful children, a huge business to run and Housewives! Wonder Woman indeed. The way she handles her son and his illness on the show is inspirational!! I wish there were more women like her on the planet!

When Ramona brought up Sonja's financial problems I was surprised. It's really considered inappropriate to talk about the money problems of others! Like I said, "Karma's a bitch!" I hope Ramona is in a good financial place after the unfortunate split up of her and her husband! Can't even say his name. I've never been very fond of that man! NO big loss for Ramona! Ramona is a survivor and will do just fine!

I'm sure its not the first time Aviva has thought about throwing her leg at someone? It's highly likely she gave it thought. I'm not so sure how these things work but it came off really quickly? LOL! Thank goodness she has many limbs!



On that note, what a Season 6 we've had. Our trip to Montana was epic for me so, Thanks to Kristen our newest Housewife for that! I'm happy Carole and I are closer and sad Sonja and I are on the outs. Until now we've had no contact with each other. You all know how I feel about Ramona, and Aviva still has her leg by the way. I love all of you ladies for whatever crazy reason! Doing the show is a very bonding experience that most people don't get to have so again, I'm grateful!

So for the moment, I'm enjoying the last weeks of summer with my kids and in no time will be getting them back to school! So very proud of my kids. I'm also very busy working on my apparel collection for ShopHQ for Fall. Hope to see you all again soon!!!

Love,
LuAnn
