LuAnn de Lesseps

LuAnn laughs off the "Lu-Mann" comment, is bored of BookGate, and explains how to properly wash a wine glass in the Hamptons.

This episode in the Hamptons had the ladies crafting (and cussing), brunching, sun bathing, tennis playing, and lobster baking!

We begin with a party at Ramona's where Ramona felt it necessary to counsel Sonja about taking on too much while dealing with her financial situation. My take on this is that Sonja's branching out in all directions, instead of focusing on getting one venture off the ground. I've always been supportive of Sonja and will continue to support her in the future.

How can crafting with kids turn into such a disaster? I thought Kristen's joke about Ramona's eyes was funny and Aviva needs get a sense humor. What was shocking to me was Aviva telling Kristen to "shut the f--- up" in front of their kids! This is why some of ladies think Aviva is a few cards short of a full deck. I don't understand why Kristen is getting involved in Aviva's conflicts with other housewives, nonetheless, Aviva was way out-of-line to drop the f-bomb after asking Kristen to tone down the conversation.

My heart breaks for Heather when I see her frustration with Jax's health problems. We are all hoping that the doctor can fix Jax's hearing loss and other health issues. Heather can be tough, but when it comes to her baby, she's all heart.

Playing tennis with Ramona and Mario is always interesting -- and usually, more fun! Mario is an excellent tennis player and Ramona is always super competitive. That day, she was not on her A-game and we were beating them soundly.

I can understand why Ramona would not want track shoes on her clay court because the soles can really damage the surface so I wasn't surprised when Ramona banned Kristen from playing that day. I keep extra pairs of tennis shoes on hand for my guests so I never have to worry about my court or about hurting my friend's feelings if they show up with the wrong footwear.
