We start off with a postmortem of the previous night: Harry Dubin left Sonja Morgan to hop in a cab with none other than LuAnn de Lesseps! The Countes was heard saying "I'm single now!" as Sonja sprained her ankle running after them. Ms. Morgan hasn't heard a peep from her promise ring giving beau since. But that's not the worst part of all. . .
She has to ice her leg with aesthetically unpleasing dishtowels! (We know, Kristen, it is quite the shock!).
Ramona was simply floored to hear that the Countess would do that to her supposed friend. In her words, "This is not good. This is like B-A-D in a big way." She just doesn't think the Countess is a girl's girl.
Josh Taekman surprises his wife Kristen at home with a business meeting. Normally we think Kristen wouldn't be too happy about more work at home, but this time it might bring the couple closer together.
Kristen overhears that Josh is casting for an EBoost add and realizes that she is the perfect model! While Josh wanted someone younger, Kristen assures him she can be just as energetic and alive as a 25 year old. Give this lady a billboard!
Sonja invites the Countess over to confront her about what happened with Harry. Sonja Morgan knows Harry like the back of her hand and if he didn't call her something is up. She just wants the truth -- did LuAnn sleep with Harry or not?
LuAnn can't believe Sonja would throw her under the bus after all their years as friends saying, "Don't point your dagger at me, because you're pointing it in the wrong direction." LuAnn didn't leave with Harry -- Harry left with LuAnn! And after her break-up with Jaques, she's not looking to date anyone. LuAnn then brings up a tough question: Why would Harry leave Sonja at the party?
Heather just can't say no to any of these bags -- especially since they're for a great cause! As a mother of a child who suffers from medical issues, she tries to be supportive of organizations that support pediatric causes. It has been a trying time with Jax's hearing, but with a mama like Heather, we know he has all the support he needs.
Carole may have impeccable fashion, but her bag game needs a boost. Good thing there's a $9,000 donation waiting for her in the form of this amazing snake skin bag!
Now that she's settled things with LuAnn, it's time to have the big talk with Harry. Harry starts to explain why he left with LuAnn saying they're just friends, but Sonja doesn't want to hear it. What happened with LuAnn doesn't matter, what matters is a man who promised to commit to commit to her left her at the party. Sonja is ready to have real genuine relationships, and Harry just might not be the man to give her that.
When Harry says it's not worth throwing away their friendship, Sonhja interjects, "I'm ended the concept of you committing to me." She's got 20 or more years of good marriage ahead of her -- and if they're both still around after that, then they can be together. And with that, she gives back the promise ring. As she says, "And that was the end of Sonja and Harry."
Carole invites Kristen and Heather over to see her remodeled apartment -- kitchen office and all -- and celebrate the copies of her hard cover books arriving! Soon, the gals get talking about the Team Sonja party. The gang hasn't seen Aviva since before the Montana debacle and they're sure the encounter will be interesting. While Carole plans to be "politely rude" to Mrs. Drescher, Kristen has a different plan. Give her two Ramonas (we're guessing she means the Pinot Grigio kind) and "sh--'s going down!"
And it's finally time for the Team Sonja party! Sonja arrives fashionably late and much to Ramona's disappointment, launches right into her (very long) speech. In Ramona's words, "It wasn't a speech it was a book!"
The Wives all decide to sit down and discuss everything that's been going on with Aviva and her illness. However, Kristen and Heather explain that asthma is just the tip of the iceberg. They think there are a lot of issues going on -- and those that run much deeper than asthma.
Aviva calmly listens to Kristen's concerns and understands. . .she has some concerns herself. After all, her doctor lied to her as well! He forged her prescriptions! And she brings out all the proof to show the ladies.
And that's about all LuAnn de Lesseps can take. Apparently, bringing out all your medical records at a dinner table was not covered in "Class with the Countess."
"Can you believe my doctor forged this essay?" Aviva asks the group. Yeah, we're not sure that's exactly what the looks of disbelief are about.
Everyone is confused -- was Aviva making a joke? Puzzled looks turn to shock when Aviva utters this sentence to Carole: "The only reason that people who are close to you are trying to peg me as a liar is because it's the only way around the fact that I heard things about your writing." It all comes back to #BookGate.
As Heather, LuAnn, and a very offended Carole jump up from the table, Kristen takes a closer look at those "lung" x-rays. Maybe she has the same question as Sonja: "Those are her lungs or her boob job?" Meanwhile, Aviva assures the group that this was a serious medical condition, not about her need to travel with her husband.
The ladies return to the table and the decide to have a calm conversation -- let's remember, it is Team Sonja's night. Well, that's until Aviva explains how hurt she is by all the ladies' accusations and decides to toss all her medical records at Heather.
Heather stands up and says she finds Aviva being hurt laughable. And that's when it happens. Aviva explains the only thing that is fake about her is. . .
The leg is on the table -- and LuAnn is in stitches. She quips, "They say, "This is the last straw?' This is the last leg."
But it doesn't stop there! Aviva then tosses the leg at Heather saying, "I'll crawl home, here! That's what you want isn't it?"
Kristen's face says it all.
Leg down! Leg! Down!
LuAnn has officially lost it. At least it was an exciting party!
Kristen exclaims, "There's no words to describe what these women have put me through!" Welcome to the Housewives, Kristen!
Carole does the responsible thing and brings the leg back to its owner.
The Leggy Blonde herself. Thank you Aviva, you've changed Housewife history forever. In the words of Ramona, "We do have fun, as crazy as we get, we do have fun." On that note -- off to the Reunion!
