We don’t mean that in a negative way. We mean it in a “girlfriend!! How have you been?” sort of way.
These breaks between seasons are good. Girlfriends just don’t really like to see each other every week, do they?, and after an extended period time one tends to forget all those things you don’t like about them.
Certainly, these girls haven’t changed. Vicki came right out of the gate with the birth of little Troy being all about her. She explains to us that she’s decided that this year everything’s going to be all about her, from renovating her home and her body to her face because, you know, she needs to build up that self-esteem. The question we had was “when has it ever not been all about Vicki?” She’s the classic narcissist and we truly enjoy watching her in action.
Heather is preparing for her “Clam Bake” and the family is tasting two different varieties of lobster, but it doesn’t take long before they remind us of another couple…the Bickermans. It’s okay, we love them for who they are. Heather is a tad anal retentive about her event, Terri wants his damned onion rings and, yet, they pull off a stunning dinner party as if they had it professionally catered. Oh, wait, they did have it professionally catered.
We like Heather Dubrow. She’s one chic and smart lady, married to one gorgeous prince of a man and the two of them together just work. (We also like the fact that Heather doesn’t cook. This is a good thing, Heather. We don’t either, so we’re in the same club).
Tamra and Eddie are already getting tired on us. That guy needs to be bitch-slapped a little and Tamra’s the girl to do it…it’s just that it’s going to be an ugly mess we really don’t want to watch.
They’re living in a small place with a gaggle of kids, so we’ll have to see how they “fit”. We don’t know if we’re going to be able to take an entire season of wedding prep with this couple. Add to that her C.U.T. Fitness opening and we may be pulling our hair out just watching her bitch-slap him about one thing or another.
Pfft, maybe it’s going to get exciting now as the two new BFFs, Gretchen and Tamra, get to go boutiqueing and immediately start smack-talking about none other than Vicki, but this is what we like about Bravo editing…we got to flash back to last season’s reunion when Vicki accused Tamra of still being legally married when she started dating Eddie and then a quick cut to Tamra informing us all what Vicki did in Cabo after she left…waking up naked in bed with a strange man.
So, as an audience, we’re reminded of the tension that remains between Tamra and Vicki and we get to hear the new BFFs continuously talk about Vicki ad nauseam. Boring, but at least we got a look at Gretchen’s new pink bag.
And why is Jesus Jugs still on the dinner party ambush? As ugly and hurtful as it was, she needs to get over this and her husband needs to stop fueling that little fire. Even though few agreed with the way the ambush was handled, she did need to be made aware of the fact that it’s not nice to brag. Only insecure people who don’t “have” it authentically actually brag about ”things”. To this day we’re still not sure if she got the message because she’s so caught up in the method. So, just in case, here it is: Don’t brag. It’s inauthentic.
Confirming that she can’t do more than one thing at a time, Alexis has quit her clothing line and her Fox news gig to deal with the struggles of being married to a controlling husband and the uncertainty of a family move. Proof positive that we women can’t have good looks and brains at the same time.
Favourite line of the night…
“I don’t know who she gets down on her knees for, but I’m pretty sure it’s not Jesus.” Tamra Barney talking about Jesus Jugs.
