The Real Housewives of New York City Recap: Boozy Brunch

by at . Comments

The Real Housewives of New York City somehow take a "Boozy Brunch" and turn in into a trip to London. Come on, admit it. You wish you could too.

We'll break down how they did it in THG's +/- recap!

What do you think of the new girls? I'm giving them a Minus 10. Were they really complaining about the traffic in NYC? Boring. This is not what I tuned in to see. I think they're making me miss the old crew.

And Ramona and Luann are already ditching them but Sonja joins their brunch and it quickly turns into drinks at a rooftop bar. Plus 8 for keeping things moving.

I'm not sure what to make of Aviva. On the one hand she has issues on top of her issues. My first instinct was to hit her with a Minus 9 for the multiple phobias.

She's afraid of flying, heights, and she's claustrophobic. Then she explains it stems from her traumatic childhood accident where she lost her leg and suddenly I feel like a heel so I'll add the points back with one extra.  Plus 10.

Aviva's husband, Reid joins the girls because Aviva needs the backup. Apparently it's the heights thing with the rooftop bar. Everyone is all aflutter because Reid doesn't wear a wedding ring and Sonja is downright appalled. 

Minus 11 for making such a big deal out of it. I think it's between Aviva and Reid and no one else's business. If the guy's going to cheat he's going to cheat. A metal band on his finger isn't about to stop him.

Ramona Singer is Insane

But apparently Sonja swayed Aviva because she drags Ramona out to buy a wedding band for her hubby. Minus 8. Did a few silly words from Sonja really make this an issue after five years of marriage? If that's the case maybe Reid should no longer be allowed to wear the "lumber jack, do it to me now" shirt out of the house.

Did anyone else think it was really rude that Aviva had Heather on speaker phone and didn't tell her? Minus 10. Of course it was also rude to take the call in the middle of dealing with the sales woman but it seems no one has manners any more.  Especially when it comes to cell phones.

Heather called to invite Aviva on a girls weekend to London.  Of course not all of the girls were invited. Heather hasn't invited Ramona who is standing their listening to this phone call. Well, that's awkward.

But my favorite part of the night is when Ramona asks Aviva, "Does Heather let you speak?" Aviva's response, "No, but I don't have the balls to say it."  At least she admits it.  Plus 12.

And Aviva also earns points for actually being a hands on mom. Plus 8 because how many of these Real Housewives have we seen bathing their kids?

Oh, and what was it that Aviva's husband did again? A real estate developer, I think? Whatever it is he's obviously good at it.  A bathroom that size in Manhattan must cost a large fortune. It was the size of most city apartments.

What's with the Something About Harry storyline we've got going on this season?  Every week the ladies mention how they've slept with Aviva's ex.  I wish Aviva had the balls to tell them she doesn't want to hear about it any more but that doesn't look likely.  Minus 7.

A couple of other notes for the night…

  • Yes, Carole resembles Steven Tyler and it's a scary, scary thing. Minus 8.
  • Who else thinks Sonja needs to drop the Homemaker line. It doesn't suit her. Stick to Sonja in the City and party. It's what she does best.
  • Ramona apologizes to Heather. Plus 7. We'll see if it helps these two budding enemies. I doubt it.
  • Luann and Jacque are jumping the whole marriage talk and headed straight for baby making? I guess there's no time to waste.
  • Did Ramona actually tell Aviva it was too early for wine?!? Has Hell frozen over? Plus 10.



I totally agree!! I can not stand Ramona, she makes me not even want to watch the show the way she treats people. She is completely in the wrong with the way she treats Luna and than lies about it and makes Luna look like she's exaggerating. She thinks she is "honest" and "speaks what other people are thinking" but she's really just a bitch and all the harsh things she says nobody is thinking, I think the other women just say what she wants to hear so they are not under her fire. The comments and insults are always from left field. Also for someone who thinks she's so classy the inappropriate put downs that come out of she mouth are just out of place and not very classy at all! I think she puts people down on a regular bases cause those are the girls she feels threatened by so that's how she makes herself feel better, cause I'm starting to see a pattern of when she beaks off "unfiltered", like when she first met Heather and she was speaking with her husband, and Luna is a much more well rounded women and those are usually the types of insults she throws at her. Ramona is just an all around bitch and I hope people see that and the women put her in her place on the show, and by critics and tabloids watching the show.


Romona is a nut job I think she is crazy I mean she is a nut job... You treat people like shit the way you treat service people is ridiculous... Waiter waiter I need a drink... Your a drunk girl get some help..,


Ramona, just shut up already!!! Damn you are obnoxious!!


Ramona needs to know that kids should be off limits. If Ramona feels LuAnn makes snide remarks, then perhaps Ramona should tit-for-tat and make digs about LuAnn, NOT the kids. Ramona is so envious of Heather. Ramona feels so threatened by affluent, self sufficient intelligent woman. It seems to me that ever since Sonja made an effort to focus on her cookbook business, Ramona doesn't seem so supportive. The way Ramona attempted to make Sonja look like an idiot simply because Sonja didn't bring a NOTE PAD to her meeting with Ramona. Heather on the other hand had better advice for Sonja
Team Heather
Team LuAnn


Avilva, who dresses in wedges and a little black dress to bathe the toddlers? Get "real.". Carole-stop with the femme fatale act. You're a little too old and it looks a little desperate. Sonia, you looked beautiful - keep your clothes on (a glimpse of coming attractions is worrisome). Remember, you have a little girl. You really want her to have to explain your antics to her friends? Luann, that you are even entertaining the idea of having a baby is mind boggling. Ramona, loved the business advice to Sonia...write notes in a notebook. Revolutionary! Heather you are loud and rude. And to all of you who discussed sleeping with Aviva's ex-shame on you.
