And we're back! Our favorite ladies have finally returned to us! We open with Heather getting her B.O.S.S. on at a photoshoot for Carole's latest tome. Shooting her is a tough German lady who is living in a '90s kind of world according to her very Shirley Manson dress.
Carole has broken up with her BF Russ and it was very not Jen and Brad. Who knew that was the shining example of courteous celebrity breakups?
Ramona drops in to see Sonja -- and to see that Sonja is SWF-ing her hard. Check out that haircut? Is the Ramona the new Rachel?
Besides discussing new 'dos, Sonja's also discussing other new. . . dos. She's dating a few eligible gentleman, including a much younger man. Gentle Baby Ben! Thankfully, Sonja could distract Ramona from judgment by pointing out her geometric necklace -- and talking about how tough it is to send her daughter off to college. Sonja even said in interview that Ramona should get a hobby to help cope with Avery going to school -- where have we heard someone say that before?
Thank god for caller ID. Heather sent Aviva straight to voicemail. Girl that is cold. But Carole cannot get into that craziness just yet.
Thankfully Carole has. . .the entire day to prepare for Aviva, since she'll be at Heather's big birthday party tonight.
Also not uber-jazzed to see Aviva, Ramona. Ramona knows she sometimes makes mistakes (I believe the phrase is "Pobody's Nerfect, Everybody's Ramotional"), but she's going to hold it together when she sees Aviva. You know, cool and collected Ramona.
Sonja could be nervous to see Aviva since she's sort of dating her ex -- the infamous Harry Dubin. They are even tongue kissing!
On to Heather's big birthday. The theme is "Throwback to the Old Back," which translates to "Bad Boy Forever." Make like Diddy and be fabulous.
For Sonja age is just a number, but seeing Ben talking to new gal Heather is just a little disconcerting. Who is that bending his ear?
Thankfully it's nothing to fret about. Kristen is married -- and also as fabulous as she needs to be. (Even when's she's mom-ing it up and covered in puke.) Plus, to quote Tom Petty, Kristen's crazy about Elvis, so we'd imagine she wouldn't do anything to send Sonja to the "Heartbreak Hotel."
Aviva makes a late arrival -- and comes in with a black cloud (according to Ramona). So far this is going off without incident (minus Carole avoiding her).
That's Sonja's "be cool" face. As in be cool and don't talk about my other boyfriend (Harry, your ex-husband) in front my young boyfriend. It's called the "down low."
When Carole and Aviva finally do cross paths, Aviva brings up her new duties as an author. Could Carole help her with a first draft?
Carole's not really feeling them as a writing team. Perhaps they should start with just being pen pals before they start working out co-author contracts.
And then the moment finally happens, Aviva steals Ramona away from Mario to try to make amends. It was about as awkward as you can imagine. Ramona was not ready for a hug! No touching!
Note to Aviva: when trying to make up with Ramona, don't mention that she's got a few years on you.
Ramona responds to that dig by calling Aviva "vicious" and "mysterious," so we're not really into "celebrate our differences" territory yet. Ramona thinks Aviva might be developing a hearing problem in addition to her other health issues.
The argument ends with Ramona wondering "Who is the Real Aviva"? Ramona, this is a P.Diddy themed party, not an Eminem/Slim Shady-themed party.
Kristen meets her husband out for dinner -- and he's especially late. She's super embarrassed to be ordering appetizers alone. Thankfully he brought something to remind her that she is forever when work is for never.
Josh will try to remember to take all their children out -- even that little one, Kingsley. No judgment for missing your pre-kid life.
