Last week, the ladies finished off St. Barth, I mean, their week in St. Barth. Feelings are still hurt by Madam Palindrome’s calling the Noodle Nymphettes “white trash” and her sucking the fun out of what had been an enjoyable, wild vacation. Tomas, A/K/A Italian Deppster Friend, took Lu and Sonja for a good walk in the garden, but will what happened in St. Barth, stay in St. Barth?
Will Aviva apologize and will RamonJa forgive her? Will Lu come clean about her Italian Job friends? So many questions. Let’s get to this week’s episode.
Really mature to baste this guy with cayenne pepper.
Ramona and Mary-O are the first to arrive at Pamela Morgan’s Flirting With Flavors Cooking School. Lu and Jacques arrive next, followed by Sonja. The Orange Creeper’s there, too–some orange-y, smile-y guy hanging around, presumably for Sonja’s pleasure. Pam is in the kitchen cooking with the guys, while Lu and RamonJa chat.
Why so worried, countess?
Ramona is curious if Lu talked to Jacques about The Tourist Italian Friend, but she isn’t going to bring it up. It’s scary nice to see a calmer, sober-er-er side of Ramona (Sell your Pinot Grigio Stock! Sell! Sell! Sell!). Lu’s looking as nervous as Aviva at a John Deere convention, though.
In Lu’s interview, she doesn’t want Jacques to get the “wrong impression” of what happened in St. Barth, so she’s doing everything she can to reassure him that she loves him and is terrified of losing him. Countess likes her French boy toys, so whatcha gonna do? Lots of icky countess pawing at Pepe le Pew in this scene–the cat is supposed to resist the skunk, not vice versa–I mean, eeewwww!
My interns bought me The Clapper to turn off Ramona. Clap! Clap! Shit! She’s still energizing.
Away from the kitchen, Ramona tells Lu and Sonja that before the trip, Aviva told her that she didn’t want to be treated differently or for anyone to make a big deal about her taking a plane. However, when Aviva got there, she was pissed to not find pony rides, the Goodyear blimp, a ticker tape parade, and a huge banner towed by the Blue Angels awaiting her arrival. Lu takes up for Aviva, because she thinks that it took a lot of guts for Aviva to get there AND maybe because Aviva’s the only one that hasn’t busted her about Tomas, the Rum Diary Italian Friend. This doesn’t sit too well with RamonJa.
If you say one word about Tomas, your pool noodles will be swimming with the fishies.
Sonja feels like there’s no excuse for calling the Noodle Nymphettes “white trash” and throwing her education around like she’s better than everybody. Sonja’s correct in her interview that Aviva didn’t “split the atom”, she just took a plane ride–with her husband–to St. Barth.
