The Sweetest Thing

LuAnn shares why she was glad to throw the parties for Jill and Victoria

By Luann de Lesseps

In this episode, you can see why they call a girl's sixteenth birthday the Sweet 16! Victoria was so enthusiastic and easy going while we planned this party. Victoria's poise and grace is unusual in someone so young. I was very proud of her.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New York City on Peacock and catch up on the Bravo app

I never had a Sweet 16 party for myself, so it was fun to plan this party with Victoria. She's an incredible girl who appreciates the things that I do for her and the years have just flown by.

I thought Jill and Jill's lawyer sister, Lisa, gave Sonja great financial advice and they did it in a way and at time when Sonja could take it in and I hope it was helpful to Sonja. As for Jill's facelift, I now understand why they say no pain, no gain! Ouch. Jill looks fabulous.

Chez Josephine was a great choice for Jill's birthday party because it's theatrical, red and opulent! Our objective when planning this soiree was for Jill to be surrounded by her family and friends and for her to have a great time, which I think she did. Ramona's impression of Jill was over the top and pretty funny, but I don't think Jill thought so. I guess she couldn't resist once she had the red wig on her head. I loved Bobby's toast to Jill, which was brief and heartfelt.

I wasn't upset that Avery's party was the same night as Victoria's because they have different sets of friends and the party was for Victoria, not for me.

Simon's hypnotherapy session was interesting to watch because of its brevity. How did Simon fall under the hypnotherapist's spell so quickly? Smoking is very unhealthy, and I wish Simon the best as he tries to kick the habit.

Victoria's party was fabulous. Her friends got right into party-mode and everyone had a great time dancing the night away. I thought that Anthony Coppers captured the essence of Victoria when planning her party. I was happy that the ladies were able to congratulate Victoria. I decided to leave early because who wants their mother to stay the entire time? I made sure everyone arrived safely and that the party was going smoothly before I left. Victoria appreciated that I trusted her and friends to have a great time without my supervision.

I didn't go to Avery's party but on film, it looked lovely. I'm sure that Avery's friends enjoyed the Singer's hospitality.

When I watched Bobby confront Simon at Avery's party, I thought that Bobby was very gracious and very clear about how he wants his wife to be treated. Good for Bobby for sticking up for Jill.

Bisous until next week my friends!
