Tonight’s Recap:  Oh here we go. The ladies are back in NYC and Ramona is throwing a dinner party with LuAnn, Sonja and a mutual friend named Pamela. They ladies men get to cook dinner and no one is saying a word to Jacques about LuAnn’s obvious fling while in St. Barth’s. It’s the elephant in the room. The topic turns to Aviva and as Sonja puts it, Aviva did not split the atom. She went to school in France and didn’t get there by boat she had to fly!”  These ladies are evil, but right on the money. A-Diva is bonkers and they are right, she’s a buzz kill even when not in their presence.

Hop across town and you have Heather and Carole doing shots pondering the notion that A-Diva has never in her life done a shot. The chick’s behavior is so epic that all the ladies make her the center of attention even when she’s nowhere to be found. Just like she wants it!

Heather heads out to lunch with LuAnn and she wants to try and get LuAnn to come clean about her frolicking with the Italian. Instead LuAnn skips over all the obvious damage she should have done to their relationship and hops onto the topic of IVF and how she plans to move forward with the procedure. Heather isn’t sure if LuAnn is trying to sell her or herself on the notion that her relationship is great.

Well, we’re just hopping from meal to meal tonight. Now Heather, Carole and A-Diva are at dinner together. Carole is sick of hearing about all the St. Barth’s crap and pretty much says as much. They are sick of hearing A-Diva call Ramona “low class’ and think for someone who had such a horrid time she should quit reliving it. Also Heather tries to convince her to cut Sonja some slack. Yes, she’s a party girl but one that is going through a messy divorce and financial crisis. As expected, A-Diva is too self absorbed to see anyone elses’ hurt.

Carole sits down to talk to Sonja about St. Barth’s and Sonja clearly has her own version of what transpired. Carole finds it hard to believe that Sonja really remembers much of anything because she was so hammered for the entire trip.

Here we go again. Heather sits to talk to A-Diva and she immediately starts ripping everyone apart. Heather defends the girls and says that it was a vacation and an opportunity to cut loose. Heather doesn’t understand why it bothered A-Diva so much and why she keeps harping on it.  Aviva tells her in a nutshell to stop being all “me me me me” and to get on with it.

Carole decides to tell A-Diva that she is so frazzled that she has started smoking and of course, this gives her a reason to shred Carole. A-Diva actually says it may cause a real rift in their friendship. Seriously, this control freak takes crazy to a really special level, doesn’t she?

Finally, a real conversation. Ramona and Sonja curl up in Ramona’s bed over tea and Sonja confides that she’s about to meet with her ex husband for the first time in years. When they got divorced it wasn’t her choice and Sonja still loves him. She needs to finalize her settlement and she needs to know where she stands with him. She’s looking for an emotional settlement more than a financial one.

Next meal of the episode? The inevitable one, lunch between Sonja and A-Diva, of course!  A-diva actually tries to apologize to Sonja but Sonja is having none of it.  She tells her she really doesn’t want a friend that treats her as she has and would just like to move on. A-Diva is truly pleading her case and saying that she places all blame on Ramona not Sonja but Sonja is just over it. Sonja tells her she doesn’t care what A-Diva is feeling at this point because the damage is truly done. At some point I knew the holier than thou thing would start and of course A-Diva starts pointing her finger at Sonja and telling her how worried she is because of her downward spiral. Honey is Sonja wasn’t accepting your niceness forget being critical!

Sonja listens and then eventually gets up and leaves. Tune in next week because that’s when Ramona and A-Diva will have their little talk that no doubt will turn explosive!
