S1 - E4
Jill, Bethenny, Alex and LuAnn get together at a swanky New York restaurant. LuAnn and Alex hit it off, while Bethenny gets annoyed with what she perceives as Alex's pretentious behavior. Meanwhile, Ramona has a night on the town with her girlfriends, where multiple men try to pick them up at the bar. Alex and Simon have dinner with Jill and Bobby, who have offered to help them get their son Francois into a private school through Jill's connections. They consider Jill a "connector" - and Jill relishes the role of being on the "inside" and introducing influential people to each other. At dinner, they also discuss their vacations to the Hamptons and St. Barts. LuAnn goes out downtown with her twenty-something niece Nicole- her soulmate who "keeps her young". Rosanna stays home with Victoria and Noel to care for them and voices her opinion that the kids need more time with their parents. Bethenny meets her business partner Jake at a culinary event and networks with various movers and shakers in the food world. Over dinner, she talks about her absent father and her desire to succeed despite him. Meanwhile, Ramona takes Avery to an audition for a Meryl Streep film. At the audition, she continues to coach Avery's acting, and the casting directors comment that they're unclear as to whether Avery wants it or is being pushed into acting. Bethenny and Jason plan a special, romantic dinner, and as a woman of action, she decides she is ready to officially move in together and springs the subject on him. Jason squashes the topic and leaves things unresolved.
