    Sonja's story is kinda sad - she landed the big fish, then found out he was a shark. She was probably so broke when she got him that it never occurred to her to get on the receiving end of a pre-nup before marrying. I think it would be hard to leave the privileged lifestyle to which she became accustomed. I hope she finally gets a fair cut.

    you left out something in Aviva's description of calm, reasonable, elegant.....don't forget she only has one leg!!!
    I know that sounds mean but not one episode goes by without the viewers being reminded that she only has one leg.
    I think we know that by now.

    I think they need to change the title to the Real Hypocrites of New York City. Heather was angry at Ramona and Sonya for talking during her fashion show, which was fair. Then she got mad at them for making a scene at her event instead of just being polite. Then the next night, she goes to Carole's party, where she proceeds to make a scene. So, it's not okay to make a scene at her party, but is fine at another? Then, Aviva got hysterical at Ramona and Sonya for not attending her charity event for their own reasons ... but is totally justified in not attending Ramona's even though she said she would ... because it is on the 90th floor. These women have amazing standards to hold everyone else to. Too bad they don't live by their own rules!

    You know, I use to love watching this show with the original cast. Now, I can't stand it. I tried to live the new girls, Aviva and Heather, but they are a peice of work. So condecending, worst than LouAnn the Countless.....Okay, senior moment there, but LouAnn is still the worst. The one thing I like about Ramona is that she will stick up for herself and her husband always has her back.

    Aviva Drescher needs some serious help. The world does not revolve around her, her perverted father & her phobias. I would have felt something for his being escorted out of Ramona's event if he was what I would consider a "normal" 80 year old man say like Teresa's parents in NJ. I think this man would try to dry hump a mannequin if she was hot enough.

    If BRAVO dumps Ramonja & keeps Aviva I won't watch.

    Excellent point. It's like "Shhhhh! Keep quiet and call NO attention to yourself, and maybe things will fade into non-existance." Luann wants attention to be ANYWHERE but on her so that nothing will come up about that little indescretion....whether it happened or not! Beats having to talk and talk and talk about it with Jacques.

    I still think that Jacques knows about it and doesn't care. (assuming it actually happened, and wasn't just set up for show drama). There were reports of infidelity with both of them in LuAnn's marriage. If those reports are true, it's an indicator that LuAnn is fine with an open relationship, which works for some people. It would not surprise me at all if LuAnn and Jacques are both of the thinking that a relationship works when they are committed emotionally to one person, but physically can have fun outside of that from time to time. LuAnn's concern may not be Jacques -- it may be the number of her "fans" who don't share her view on what makes a relationship work.

    Countass doesn't get nearly enough credit for being a conniving, mean witch. IMHO she's the one who started the fight at St. Barts- she piped up and told Aviva that Romeana and Sonjayjay were talking about how to tell Aviva to get her husband outta there... then countass sat back and watched the brawl. She loves to hurt people.

    Sonja should've taken a lesson from Charlotte's pre-nup experience with her 1st marriage to super wealthy Trey, in "Sex and the City" when she was negotiating with Trey's mother for her 'value' in the pre-nup --- the mother offered half a million and Charlotte said she was worth at least a million --- and got it. Of course, nowadays, even a million wouldn't go very far in Sonja's world. . .

    Well Luann is a single women. Jack hasn't put a ring on it. I am sure she told him about her St Barth's fling and he forgave her. It is their business.
    I just still SMH over Aviva & her phobias. I do understand & am ok with her having phobias. The problem is that she is allowing her phobias to control her & the people around her & when they don't give into her phobias she goes all Scarface over them. I am surprised she can live in NYC and not worry that a 90 story building might fall right on top of her & revel her striped red stockings.
    Her father is a disgusting pig. He & Aviva put him out there so George you get back what you put out. There was ZERO need for you to show up at Ramona's party other than to cause drama. My poor elderly 80 year old father....isn't this the same elderly father who wanted you to meet the 20 year old model he was "dating"? YEA...sure!
    BRAVO get that woman off my TV!
