Successful so far, Kat ventures into the waters of the Ter/Jacquee/Caro fight. Caro shuts her down immediately, sharply telling Kat to stay out of it. Kat says she will, but not before reminding them to not let the good friendship go over some petty fights.
Do as I say, not as I do. The ballad of Caroline Manzo.
Ter asks Mel to go for a walk on the beach. Mel is not stoked on the idea, but agrees to a pajama clad stroll. Mel just wants for things to be good with Ter and Brown Smurf. She says. They set off down the beach, and now it’s Ter turn to recount the Kat story from the night before.
And big surprise, Ter’s not all sunshine and bunny rabbits over it, she’s still dredging up the stolen recipes. Mel sort of backs up Kat, saying that Kat says Ter’s Mom called Kat’s Mom, asked for the recipe and then Ter put it in the book. But they’re all brothers and sisters, it probably is the same recipe, Mel concludes.
And then Mel kind of lays it down for Ter! She reminds her that she’s now fought with Mel, Caro, Jacquee and Ter. “Oh, really?” says Ter in what sounds dubbed to me. Mel is sick of everything bothering everyone. Ter maintains that she holds no grudges. Mel is quick to jump in that she holds not grudges either. Are they kidding me? The entire Housewives franchise is build of grudges.
Ter goes through her list of alleged problems that she has with the other ladies. THE COOKBOOK is mentioned. Ter lightly accuses Caro of getting in Jacquee’s head about the bankruptcy. Then she reminds Mel of the beautiful picture of Caroline that she put in her book. Enough about the beatiful picture already, says Mel.
And then, Ter invokes Dina. She tells Mel that she’s not close with Caro like she is with Dina. Not sure what that has to do with anything, but I’m just telling myself it’s all leading up to some kind of showdown.
“Time heals all wounds,” says Mel. “It’s a new day,” she continues. She feels like she and Ter had a breakthrough moment, and it makes her happy. Ter wants to rekindle their friendship on the trip. “Before you write your next book, just think first,” Mel chides Ter.
Back at the parking lot, the men are talking about how nicely everyone is getting along….hopefully, that will change by next week. I’ll be here to let you know.
