Last week’s episode kicked off the holiday season in New York with plenty of boozy get-togethers, attempts to put wine-gate to rest, and a new holiday classic. I’m curious if your opinions are changing about individual housewives. Yes, no, maybe?
Carole opens this week’s episode with a white elephant holiday party. Everyone draws a number, then takes a turn unwrapping a gift. One can either keep the gift or take a more desirable gift from someone that went ahead of them. Do unwanted gifts from a mother-in-law enjoy an afterlife? Yes, at white elephant parties. Combine a great gift snatched out of your hands with a bunch of alcohol and holiday blues, then you’ve got yourself a par-tay and a visit from the local authori-tays.
Is that an iguana or are you happy to see me?
Sonja is a little surprised to see the Hornysaurus. She experiences great relief when she finds out Lu is in the hot seat next to him. There’s a range of gifts, from espresso cups and jewelry to a ball gag and what George calls a clitoris iguana. He needs to lay off of the pharmaceuticals. Lu trades in her espresso cups for the wine coaster and drip ring. That’s a great gift for oenophile Jacques, and George’s observation that it could double for a cock ring makes it two gifts in one. Carole is the bravest of all and will be going home with the iguana. No surprise that the ball gag stays with George. All in all, the gifts find their rightful owners and destiny prevails.
No, thank you. You should really keep the ball gag, George.
SonJa is busy whipping up a huge batch of “no good deed goes unpunished” in her toaster oven for Heather and the Yummie Freebie Dreamie Teamie. Heather is on time and ready to go, along with a complement of professionals that she pulled together. Heather and the crew are getting anxious to get moving and get back to their jobs in the real world that pay with real money, instead of SonJa dollars printed by her interns and covered with coffee stains.
What do you mean my checks bounced? I just deposited $10K in SonJa dollars!
The only people missing are Lady Morgan and James, the marketing wizard. SonJa eventually shows up, an hour late and looking less than camera-ready. I take that back. Considering the likely market for her toaster oven, she’s good to go. Save the headless torso model for something that doesn’t involve crumb trays.
I’m here and bagladylicious!
Heather is giving the photographer, Gian, the run down of the two shoots. The first campaign is the headless torso that Dreamie Teamie agreed upon. Number Two will be SonJa’s campaign of Lady Morgan dressed in an evening gown posing with her prototype. How can she possibly think the toaster oven is a good idea. The majority of people that want a toaster oven already have one. She’s nuts. When SonJa finally shows up, instead of getting ready, she wants to cook eggs and annoy the food stylist.
You actually took all of my tin foil and made a hat with it?
