    Vicki seems to have bangs now and better hair conditioning overall.
    I agree she looks better. They all seem to do way too many botox / fillers / injections, though.

    Without hair extensions, she might look so current we'd think she was on the way out to clean the garage.

    Very funny when Slime's mom said Wretchen had to work harder, bring in more money because of Slime's lawsuit expenses. Bet Wretch never thought SHE would be the money tree. Then the mom says something like "... I still don't know what you do for a living" while Slime struggles to sound relevant, like maybe he's actually working at something.

    Sure, Slime, why don'tcha go be a lawyer? Or a doctor? Maybe go be a cowboy. Hale, go be the Ambassador to China or something. On the other hand, the poor man does sound pathetic when he admits to past arrogance. But it's a little late for confession. At least Wretch can switch seats with people to get the camera to film her good side - the side without the moles she complains about. Slime has moles 360 degrees. No good side.

    They were so tacky. (a) Tight jeans don't make you sexy, TamRAA. Not every ass should be wedged into denim so tight that it's groaning. (b) At one point Ickie seems to notice the taste of the wine but they seeme to make no effort to learn anything about it except how fast it could be sloshed down their gullets. (c) Icky's "Lalalala let's go" command was about as imperious and self-important as I've seen her. Clue, Ickster: Maybe the others weren't quite "buzzed" yet and needed a few more brain cells killed off...

    I'm probably the only one on this board - besides AngloAm - who actually likes Slade.
    He, at least, admits to having been arrogant, etc. when he was making all the money. I like that he is self deprecating. The rest of these people are all
    in La La Land.
    I do love me some Slade and I agree with everything you say. His mum was pretty much in La La Land when she mentioned that the Gretch's dad might 'give' Slade the business. ('Give!') I don't think he can really be a deadbeat dad [I]the way that people say[I] without having been locked up by now. And how tacky of Ickie & Co. to recommend that he go to McDonalds. Way to kick a guy when he's down. I seem to remember TamRAA sobbing and snivelling about how Slimon tossed a successful career to push tequila and their income plummeted. However, she has a talent for spite, doesn't she? BTW: rumor has it that Ickie and Slade are closer of late. Now if I could just get a better picture of Slade painting naked as the Gretch caught him.

    Was Alexis totally over the top in how great she is and how huge a brand she's going to be, etc.? The woman is totally delusional.
    Last episode she mentioned that she had decided to launch a successful dress line. Note that she things that success is merely a matter of deciding to be successful. Not sure it works that way in the real world, but in Hubris-Land Saint Boob merely has to wish a thing and her King and Lord and her can name it and claim it. Does she honestly think that most business ventures fail because the entrepreneurs decided to launch an unsuccessful enterprise? It's Saint Boob's sense of entitlement that rankles. Although she does seem nicer this season, she still figures she's rather specially blessed more than anyone else, and that it is right and fitting that she's 'up there.'

    Poor, poor Donn. Seems like Vicki was annoyed with him for having too much to imbibe at Peggy's party. So, she will take it out on him forever, instead of just trying to communicate things with him. What a foolish woman she is.
    Donn, Donn, what does one do with Donn. Ickie doesn't seem to know. She is so fake. She makes dinners she's not going to eat, because they make her look all caring (and she'd just been slammed by her kids for never being home at meal times). She has 8000 competing visions of what she should be runnnig around in her head. It was sad to see her realize that her job won't love her back. But anyone could have told her that. She's such a child really, except there's no teacher to give her a gold star for her straight A's.

    Could have done without all the lingerie shots with Peggy / provocative posed shots with Alexis, orchestrated by Jim, etc. Bravo is looking more and more like the Playboy Channel.
    What did you think of King and Lord's slapping Saint Boob's perky butt like she was a pole-dancing floozy. Barfomatic but Christian (?). Hey you two, Christian does mean forgiven but it also means 'sin no more.' Except in their Church of the Convenient.

    Oh, we will have to agree to disagree on this one. I still think he's dreamy. I think inside him that there is still the little guy from Alaska that he was before success made him so arrogant.

    Had to share this, it's hilarious, includes all the housewives.

    The Real Housewives Head to the Royal Wedding!

    Reneekk, OMG, that is so funny! Those jokes about quotes from the Hw's. Very cute.

    I'm not sure about Vicki's photo. Maybe it's just the fit of the dress or the angle she was standing. She's the kind of person who looks thin one week and the a little bloated the next.

World class chefs are cooking for you...and you snipe about powdering noses and missing husbands. Shut up, talk about the weather, the next Sade, or the friggin' fish in the table setting and enjoy the lovely food Mary Sue & Susan have made for you!
    On the other hand...it was set up to be drama (not only because TamRAA and the Gretch were there)...I honestly thought that it was 'normal' to break up wives and husbands/couples to stimulate good conversation (and to forestall the seriously juvenile behavior we saw). This pretending to be on Noah's Ark and going about in two by twos is a bit Junior High-ish and dull.

    I did not see one single person at the dinner party without appalling manners, except mayyyybe Popgun Peggy.

    1) Saint Boob and Frug: Frug should have been there period. He accepted the invitation and little short of death should have prevented him from attending. Saint Boob's little lie just told Popgun Peggy that "you've done a great job on this dinner but you're not important enough to me to honor my commitment to." The final truth said "you've done a great job on this dinner but I can't be expected to be polite for a few hours in company I don't particularly care for, to avoid hurting everyone else's feelings. Grow up, little Frugster.

    Meanwhile Saint Boob acted like a four year old sniveling and snottering in the 'powder room' like a stood up girly at the kindergarten prom. Is she so lacking in inner resources that without Frug to prop her up she must crumple? And so lacking in self-possession that she sees that as a virtue? "Look at me everyone, I'mma hijack your evening to prove what a useless person I am." It's insulting to the intellect, her idea that she can run her own dress line as her baby in which she makes the decisions (and which isn't an indulgence for the little lady by frontin' money Frug) but the moment a bit of food appears she can't handle it and needs Frug around.

    AND SHE BROUGHT AN UNINVITED GUEST!!!!!!!!!!! Enough said.

    2) Gretchen and Slade: See above reference making a commitment and keeping it. Given that Grayson is ill I could maybe let it slide but the other boy is 19 and shouldn't need daddy quite that much. After all the kids were there for the weekend. Three hours might not be so big a deal, especially not if Slade saw them more often but apparently (a) her mom has taken the kids to the other end of the universe (57 miles away) and (b) Gretch and Slade feel that's too far to go a lot. Oh, yeah, and he might be afraid of being served papers. In any event....

    GRETCHEN BROUGHT AN UNINVITED GUEST!!!!!!!!!

    Who spent the evening making snide remarks about Maybe-Gaybe Eddie*. Audibly. It's horrific that it was audible, but worse that the sneering went on at all. Way to take the high road, Gretch. Way to show your pleasure in Popgun's spread. Even small children know not to do that.
    Didn’t Saint Boob and the Gretch consider that if they’d communicated the horrible lack of manners of Frug and Slade, perhaps Popgun Peggy know of two unattached bachelors who could have been invited? Or that maybe they were interesting and interested enough to go by themselves – that they were invited due to Popgun’s wishing to see them and not to be part of some sort of grade-school boy-girl-boy class picture arrangement? Or that Popgun’s house is not a restaurant and they weren’t all going Dutch? Is presumption even objectionable any more or am I in my mid-forties already a throwback?

    3) TamRAA and Eddie: Come on, EdRAA, you're not in high school. We get it - you're bonking up a storm, making soft core porn, emotionally scarring your children, shaming your mother, and sticking the knife into Simon every chance you can get, but you were unseemly. Get a room. And stay in it. Until you wear each other's bits off. And of course the sniping and rudeness and general shameful behaviour. Especially the listening in at the door. I do believe that Popgun Peggy, possibly alone among the group, has retained an ability to be shocked, because she sure sounded so when she encountered TamRAA acting like a child.

    And Eddie; you don't know Slade. He may be a deadbeat and all that (NO! NO!) but it's not very flattering to you to see you joining in the jokes at his expense. You changed your name to match your mentor's, I do believe; who was Slade's mentor? You changed your name?

    And don't forget to keep Ickie sweet on you or you're history.

    4) Ickie and Donn: I really wanted to like Donn but his jokes were puerile and nasty and *poof* went my admiration. Again, way to behave, Donny. And then you called your wife the b-word in front of everyone. Well, you do know her better than anyone else there, right? So who are we to argue with you. Ickie did her usual act of egging everyone on while attempting to maintain plausible deniability.

    5) Micah: Again, you seemed normal (or at least quiet) but the branding exercise getting your little body ready was a bit ugh, and then your taunting Saint Boob’s pet gay was merciless and bullying. I would like to think you were trying to be all ‘hail fellow well met’ or something but you just looked like you really don’t care about ‘subordinate’ ‘not rich’ people’s feelings. You are still a ‘whatever’ in my book.

    6) Popgun: Although you weren’t really rude to anyone, this whole dinner party is ridiculous in conception. Ideally your guests shouldn’t be interrupted by the cook barging in and announcing the details of what is being served and how it was cooked. It just seems so self-promoting. So staged. So fake. I love how your make-up artist is a friend, but not the ‘exclusive dinner party’ kind. Again like Micah, Bentley-Driving Popgun shows that The Poors don’t really matter to her. But Popgun: Ask yourself how long Ms. Make-up would be your ‘friend’ if you stopped paying for it. Do you seriously want me to believe that the singer was there as ‘your friend?’ And honestly, isn’t that a different tract house to the one you had at the beginning of the season?

    * My partner who’d never seen Eddie or heard the rumors didn’t even look up when he heard Eddie’s voice – I said “that’s TamRAA’s boyfriend” and he said “but he’s gay.”

    I didn't think he looked terrible exactly, but he's not ageing well. And then he opens his mouth and belches out some imperious stupidity and that's all I need to know.
