The Real Housewives of New York City reaches its less than explosive conclusion in Reunion Part 2. Who wants blood? Who still wants an apology and who just wants toast?
We break it all down in THG's +/- review.
We revisit LuAnn's alleged night with Tomas in St. Barths and even she has to admit the stories she wove sound ridiculous. Plus 10.
Jacques was invited to the reunion show but declined to make an appearance. Plus 8. I actually think more of him for staying away.
Rest assured, LuAnn says she and Jacques are still together. I know how worried everyone was over that.
When LuAnn explains everything that happened that night in St. Barths, it sounds almost plausible but Ramona's not about to let it go. She tells Andy that "LuAnn loves her men and can't keep her hands off them." But then claims she won't take it any further. Why even go there if she's not looking to stir up trouble? She even goes so far as to allude that LuAnn has an open relationship.
LuAnn tells her she needs to stop unless she wants blood.
Minus 12. to Ramona who can't stop playing games to get under LuAnn's skin.
Then Carole jumps in on the LuAnn bashing as she wonders aloud why LuAnn would act like that if she was worried what her kids back home might see. Minus 10. Carole's one of the more mild mannered Housewives but she does enjoying taking her shots at LuAnn.
Andy asks why Aviva was so upset about Sonja's extracurricular activities in St. Barths but she really didn't have an answer.
Some of the viewer questions were great...
Since George is such a disgusting, inappropriate, dirty old man, isn't it low class to be pimping your friends out to your letch of a father? Plus 13.
Aviva says it's comparing apples and oranges and apparently doesn't regret trying to set up dear old dad with Sonja but wouldn't have done it to good friend Carole.
I'm tired of hearing how much Aviva cares about Sonja. It simply doesn't ring true. Aviva acts like she never said any of those horrible things about Sonja, even when they reshow them all. Minus 15. Sonja doesn't look like she's going to be forgiving Aviva any time soon.
Enough about George and Aviva and on to Toaster Gate!
I can't believe we're spending screen time on a toaster oven. Minus 9. Did I mention this season was boring?
Sonja and Heather argue over logos and boxes and oven mitts. Yawn...
The funniest moment comes when Andy has to point out to Sonja that she might be pissing Heather off. She backtracks and says she's happy with Heather's work but maybe they shouldn't work together anymore. Ya think?.
Andy stops the show to tell Ramona her lip stick is making her look like a mental patient. Plus 18. I love Andy.
Ramona feels that nothing she's done has deserved Aviva's behavior. Well, maybe not nothing but I won't deny that Aviva is a nutjob.
But Aviva doesn't see it as beating up on Ramona. She doesn't see her crazy, vicious behavior. Why does Heather look so pleased watching these two go back and forth?
Andy runs down the litany of the name calling that Ramona has endured from Aviva this season. According to Aviva, Ramona is ill mannered, malicious, sick, needs rehab, drove Sonja to drink, and disgusts her and don't forget that Aviva's father called her a trailer turd. Yet Aviva wants the apology? Minus 20.
Aviva says her mother died of complications due to alcoholism so she admits that she overreacted to Ramona and Sonja's drinking. OK, we'll cut the crazy woman some slack.
Andy points out that Jill and Kelly always thought Ramona had a drinking problem and he obviously hits a nerve as Ramona flips out on him. Minus 10. But Carole and Heather don't see her drinking as an issue..
Andy asks if the ladies are feeling a sense of resolution now that the season is over. Ramona says feels less resolved than she ever has on a reunion show.
Well, what did you think of the new Housewives? Would you invite any of them back for next season?
