Next we have veteran Adriana and her fiance Frederic. These two should be first on the guest list for the next Tarts and Doofuses party. We get a tour of Frederic’s most recent purchase, a vintage yacht. It’s a total wreck, but Frederic has major plans to refit it and rub it in everyone’s face.
“Who’s going to be jealous that I live HERE?”
Adriana’s main concern is that the renovation will include a walk-in closet. It’s always nice to spend time with grounded people who have their priorities in order.
We’ve come back around to Marysol, who is arriving at her mother Elsa’s house to report on her progress hanging “lost dog” posters. Just as she completes her story, the missing dog comes running into the room. Apparently he’s been in a closet for a day. Aw man! Who watched the baby pink office while Marysol so diligently posted signs around Miami? Elsa is worried that the dog might be trying to commit suicide, to which I say, who could blame him? Elsa wants an update on Marysol’s marriage and we find out that she’s still separated. Nothing has changed since the beginning of the episode. It seems that Elsa would like Marysol to just get divorced already and move along with her life. She gets so worked up about it that her maid has to come sing to her to calm her down.
“No hay banda! Silencio!”
Elsewhere in the MIA, Lea and Adriana sit down to gossip and Lea complains about her Star Island house that needs to be torn down. Adriana mentions that her friend Lisa just bought a house on Star Island and Lea’s celebrity neighbor hopes are dashed before our eyes. She instructs Adriana to bring the new neighbors to a wine and food festival on Sunday so that Lea can examine them in person.
Best-friends-and-soon-to-be-divorced Robert and Ana are working away at the law office they manage together. Geez, for two people who couldn’t bear to be married to each other for one more minute, these two sure spend a lot of time together. There’s a rift in the business because Ana wants to move their office to Coral Gables, but Robert wants to stay where they are. I know I can hardly stand waiting for the resolution to this earth shattering crisis.
And it’s off to the wine and food festival! Marysol, Ana and sometimes recurring Housewife Alexia are riding together in a limo. We learn that Alexia has a son who is turning 15 and has survived a terrible car accident. I wonder if Alexia is still as vacant as the rest of these ladies after having been confronted with real life like that.
At the festival everyone is introduced to each other and air kisses are thrown. Then in walks matronly Lea, here to preside over the party. Marysol is nervous because the last time she saw Lea it was confrontational. But Lea doesn’t have time to get into it with Marysol because she is too busy snubbing new neighbor Lisa.
“I’ll only talk to others wearing hooded cloaks!”
