The First 'Wives Club

Episode 2:'s Associate Editor ponders serving crawfish to Housewives, the meaning of cute, and how to properly deal with your friend's boob.

Welcome back California-lovers. I got you a Valentine's Day present. It's a chance to eavesdrop on the wonder that is Vicki's Cajun themed dinner party. So throw that sack of shrimp over your shoulder and sit down for a romantic meal!

A Trashbag of Fish
The first course of dinner party tension was served by Alexis and Peggy. Apparently, the whole "I used to date Jim" thing has not (crawfish) boiled over, and the two are still at odds about it -- at odds enough that they get into a broken-bone-off (Peggy's daughter vs. Alexis). They even snip about KetchupGate from San Antonio! I was worried the entire table

Course two of awkwardness was served by Heather, who apparently was displeased with her Parisian plane ride engagement (and Sarah's lack of solid engagement proof, i.e., a ring). Heather also committed the ultimate blast to Gretchen -- calling her cute. Pomeranians (Giggy) are cute. Handbags are cute. Adult women don't really adore being called such (as we'll delve into shortly). Heather's opinions are going to take this group a little bit to get used to, or perhaps just continue to serve up some drama throughout the season.
