LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn would like to avoid fights on stairwells for safety reasons, thinks a book is not a baby, and wonders if Ramona protests too much.

The drama really heats up in this episode with the continuation of Aviva and Carole's BookGate quarrel and an adventure race gone awry where you see our newest housewife taking "mud flinging" to a whole new level!

It doesn't look Aviva and Carole will make up anytime soon after Aviva shared the "word on the street" about Carole using a ghostwriter for her first book. What street?

Clichés aside; Aviva shouldn't have used this phrase. She might have said exactly where she heard this gossip and who said it so that Carole could defend herself. Instead, what we see is Carole losing her temper and shouting at Aviva as if this would deescalate the situation! If I were at the party, I would have pulled Carole away from the staircase argument just as Aviva's stylist did for Aviva. Nothing good can come of tempers flaring on a steep staircase in the middle of a party -- and someone could have gotten hurt.

Heather is a loyal friend and she's got Carole's back because she believes that Carole wrote her book and she understands the importance Carole puts on her career. Ramona's protestations of how she doesn't want to get in the middle between Aviva and Carole are hysterical. . .She doth protest waaay too much! When Ramona opens her eyes super wide and raises her voice an octave, you can assume that she's not being truthful about just how much she enjoys stirring the pot.
