The Real Housewives of New York City Recap: Psychic Readings and Camel Woes

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New York City are still on their Moroccan adventure and needless to say, the fireworks haven't stopped.

Find out who made up and who simply gave up in THG's +/- recap!

We open the episode right where we left off last week as the psychic tells Ramona that there is another woman after her husband. Suddenly everyone is speculating whether Mario is cheating on Ramona.

You R So Lucky!

Kelly and Luann are tripping over one another to get the translation correct. They get a Plus 5 for trying to take their jobs seriously but Deduct 3 because their bickering over interpretation made things even more confusing.

Sonja bursts into tears. She does a lot of that this week. Maybe she's flashing on the fact that her husband left her. Maybe she just feels that badly for her good friend Ramona but I'm handing her a Minus 5 because in the end Ramona ended up consoling her. Shouldn't that have been the other way around?

Jill quickly gossips with the crowd that she's heard that Mario's been fooling around. Ooh, that's a Negative 5 on the friend meter.

Ramona's reaction is all over the place. First she laments that she does too much for Mario. Then she says that woman are always throwing themselves at him, as if that's any excuse. 

Suddenly Ramona is accusing Luann of hitting on her husband. How long has she been stewing about that one? Finally she ends up telling Sonja that her marriage is great and she has nothing to worry about. We'll see if that holds true when she gets back to New York.

In the end folks, it's a psychic. There are no pictures, video, or mistresses to confront. Psychic readings are suppose to be fun and this one certainly added some spice to a boring party so Plus 10 for keeping things interesting.

Camel Woe

The next day the women head on an outing into town and end up arguing over who sits where on the van. Seriously? This is the best we can do?

Luann asks Sonja to save her seat and Cindy takes this as some sort of snub. If it weren't so ridiculous it'd just be boring. Wait, it was boring. Minus 8.

And if Sonja is so damn concerned about her safety perhaps she shouldn't carry around a giant open purse in an crowded market. Jill's fanny pack certainly isn't the height of fashion but I'll give her a Plus 3 for making some sense.

Who has camel paranoia? Well, after Luann nearly got bucked off of hers Sonja didn't look quite so silly any more.

What was up with Sonja this week. She was nervous, edgy, or crying. Honestly, this is suppose to be a fun trip. Minus 5 for bringing everyone down.

Cindy just can't handle the bickering amongst the ladies. "These women are crazy." No kidding. Didn't you watch this show before you joined the cast? Is this really a surprise to you?

Sonja and Cindy earn a Plus 10 for having an actual adult conversation and agreeing to start over. You surprise me ladies. I never thought I'd see the day.

Talkin' 'Bout Feelings

Unfortunately, Jill and Ramona earn a Negative 15 when they attempt to reconcile. Neither one of them can realize that when you have a talk with someone, you also have to listen.

Ramona feels Jill is being too negative. Jill feels Ramona doesn't hear her. They both have their points to make. They've hurt one another over and over again and that's not going away in one conversation and surely not a conversation where neither one them is willing to shut up and listen.

Can this friendship be mended? It certainly didn't happen tonight. Maybe one more week in Morocco can help. I doubt it but stranger things have happened. Just look and Sonja and Cindy.

EPISODE TOTAL: -13! SEASON TOTAL: +40! Better luck next week ladies.


I can't stand Luann, Kelly, Jill and Cindy the are cruel, immature and so ridiculous, you can see that they are really unhappy with their life. Maybe being mean makes them to feel less empty.. Good luck darlings I hope you can find a little happiness.


Kelly is ridiculous- I cannot stand her, she needs to shut it!!


I think Alex and Ramona are the only two left on the show that are worth watching. I'm so happy Alex finally stands tall and speaks her mind. She is so cute. Ramona is Ramona. Those old goats can say what they want, but at least Ramona has a heart and is willing to admit when she is wrong. Alexa and Ramona are the only two of these women I'd have as friends. The remainder are just mean, jealous, ugly women.


Perfect Nana- I couldn't have said it better myself. Just perfect. I hope Andy is reading these blogs...


With the exception of Alex & Cindy, these women are out of their minds. Miserable, petty, selfish, self centered & back stabbing. This show hasn't been fun to watch in 2 seasons. They're honestly embarassing & offensive to watch. Bravo desperately needs to replace the whole cast and I think they will next season. One can only hope. Its gotten old and stale, imo.


Cindy's reaction to the seat saving was over the top-grade school reaction. You're write up is hysterical! Love this + and - system-it cracks me up!
I have to agree with these other people. This is an odd and very different year for NY. I don't care for it at all. It seems so off without Bethenny. I still don't think Ramona is to blame for what occurred between Jill and Bethenny. LuAnn had her hands in that and shut down a great opportunity for reconciliation. Jill just sees Ramona as the evil one for not letting her stay on that island and for the loss of Bethenny in her life. It seems NEVER ENDING! Am not saying Ramona is perfect-she can drive you nuts! But, she does admit to a lot of her faults. These women are so damn lucky to be taken to such a wonderful place, yet all they do is scream, cry and fight!Ugh!!! Never thought I'd say this but Kelly seems to be really doing well and I think Alex remains rationale and calm. Sonja is a hot mess!!! But, your article is great! Thanks.


This season has been just awful. Each one of the women behaves badly and none of them are worthy of even the D-list fame they have achieved. Cindy Barshop has been a disastrous casting addition. The badly conceived Moroccan vacation (which didn't work for Sex and the City either) has been a bore. I've gotten to the point where I just don't care much anymore. Actually, reading people's recaps and the comments has become much more entertaining. These women need to just fade away into the reality has-been heap. Time to put this show to rest. It has completely jumped the shark.


Camel Woes? Or "Camel Toes?!"


Ok, these are supposed to be grown, adult women? They act and sound more like teenage girls cat fighting and vying for "Queen Bee" status. Teenagers can be forgiven for acting this way, as all the connections in their brains are not fully formed (really, that is true!), but adult women acting that way is just, well, pathetic. Time to put your big girl pants on ladies!


This season has been a major disappointment thus far! I miss the old housewives days. All the newer seasons/episodes come off as very scripted and arranged. I understand that this is reality TV, but there was something about these original series that still came off as unique and 'real' RIP The Real Housewives...........
