Plot twist: Donald Trump wins. Yes, we're still trying to get to grips with that little nugget of truth, but how long will it take the ladies to get over it?

Now, we already knew that Carole was excited about the election, so she started the episode off by going canvassing with her mother in Pennsylvania. 

The awkward thing about the meeting was that Carole was introducing her mother to Adam and it made me think: How often does Carole see/speak to her mother? 

It's not like Adam is a new figure in her life. He's been around for quite some time. Like, is she embarrassed by him? 

Carole even went door-to-door to inflict her views on the people of Pennsylvania, and people looked pissed.

Meanwhile, Ramona decided it was time for some facial rejuvenation. This was brought on by her turning 60-years-old. When her face was numbed, it made her want to run off. 

She decided to ride it out because she wanted to look awesome for her big birthday bash. Who wouldn't want to look great while hitting a milestone?

While this was going down, Sonja hit up the town for a date with Rocco. She did confirm she liked being with Rocco but was quick to point out that she liked getting hot and heavy with "Frenchy."

Um, okay then. 

Her attention quickly turned to Tinsley because of the way she was acting. ICYMI: She threw Tinsley a bone by letting her live with her while she sorted her life out. 

Tinsley repaid the favor by going out with Sonja's friends and not inviting her. Pretty bitchy, right?

At Carole's party, things took a sour turn when it was confirmed that Donald Trump was the president-elect. 

Carole was still pissed the next morning, so she went out for some light refreshments. Yes, they may be low-calorie, but they were filled with alcohol. 

She hit up some classy boutiques with Ramona to find a dress for her birthday party that Dorinda was planning. 

Ramona opened up about Bethenny being pissed at her for bringing up Brynn because there was just no need for her reaction. 

With a dress in the can, it was time for the party. Obviously, there was a time-jump, but we don't want to know what happened in between takes.

Our trusty friends at Bravo edit the episode for as much drama as possible. Tinsley decided to break the mold at the party with a fake wedding gown.

It was meant to be all black dresses, but something tells us Tinsley is doing anything for an extra second of air time. 

Sonja got annoyed with Tinsley because she went to the bar and only got herself a drink. Geez, will Tinsley ever learn?

The episode concluded with Ramona forgetting the name of her date. What the hell?
