The First 'Wives Club

Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor distills all the 'Wife wisdom from Episode 12.

May 22, 2011

It was all about Alexis Couture this week. From party planning with the overly "Frenchy" Pascal to learning what Alexis sees as "walk in the park" wear, the dress line premiere was pretty much as fabulous and fun as Alexis could have hoped. Except for that whole thing with Vicki being rushed to the hospital because she was, as Tamra so elegantly phrased it, "bleeding from her ass." 

However blood wasn't the only thing shed this episode, since both Gretchen and Vicki broke down into tears about their relationships. Looks like they're both at major turning points. So what can we learn from the ladies in this penultimate episode full of fashions, trials, and tribulations? Let's find out.

Relationships

What do you get for the man who has everything? Sexy photos of yourself! The Vegas trip was the big reveal of Peggy's bound volume of "boudoir photos," and Micah seemed pretty pleased. You can check out some of the shots for yourself here. And the question of where to store "boudoir photos" from my previous recap remains unanswered. Thoughts?

A hug at the end of the day (or some other type of physical affection) is absolutely necessary. I think that much is clear from Vicki's heart to heart with Tamra. So keep the magic alive with "boudoir photos" (or whatever works for you)!

Gretchen went deep this week and asked the question, "Is love enough?" Well...it looks like we don't have an answer yet. I guess we'll watch what happens in the finale.
