The Real Housewives of New York City Recap: Showing Some Skin

by at . Comments

This week on The Real Housewives of New York City, Sonja Morgan throws a Burlesque party and costumes are required as long as they show some skin.

As always, THG recaps all the craziness in our +/- review!

The Housewives have some serious mother / daughter bonding time with mixed results. Ramona takes Avery shopping ... for a burlesque outfit? What exactly is she teaching her 16-year-old? Where to buy her bustiers and S & M gear? Minus 5.

But I must admit, Avery always seems to have more sense than her mother. She turns down an invite to the party and she earns a Plus 7 for telling Ramona that she'd look like a chicken in that feathered outfit. 

Burlesque Action

Why does Ramona find it hard to believe that Avery wants her parents home? Yes, the teenager might be holed up in her room but she's still a kid. She craves stability and comfort, knowing her parents are home, not out gallivanting every night. 

Jill Zarin visits Allie at school where she hears about the girl's curriculum which includes Latin film and sex theory classes. Then she tells Jill she wants to be a sex columnist. Plus 5 to Jill for not reacting too badly. I think Allie's really trying to press her buttons. She should really give her a break. She is buying her $150 jeans.

Jill gets a Plus 10 for calling Allie out on her pseudo vegetarianism. I don't care if you eat chicken but you are not a vegetarian, no matter how cool it is to use the term.

Luann's driving lessons were a little scary. Minus 7 for picking an icy parking lot and letting Victoria speed through it. Minus 10 for admitting that you don't wear your seatbelt because you don't remember. Will it be OK when Victoria gives her that excuse?

Chris March is back to dress Sonja for her burlesque party. I have to admit that I thought more of Chris when he was on Project Runway. The two times he's helped Sonja I haven't been impressed.  Minus 10.

The Burlesque number was suppose to be playful but it bordered on painful. The only one who really seemed to enjoy it was Mario. I still think the psychic was right. 

Thank goodness that whole Simon / Jill mess is over. Minus 5 for just being boring. 

We also got to hear Luann's new song. I'll hand out 10 points to anyone who will tell this woman that she can't sing. No takers? Damn.

EPISODE TOTAL: -15! SEASON TOTAL: +25!

Next week we have to sit through Luann's music video. On the upside, it looks like no body shows. I'm sure those Housewife claws are being sharpened as we speak.
