Mob Wives: Karen and Natalie's Season 5 Twitter War!

Karen sure looks cool, calm and collected!

Just as I predicted, the events of a day of filming spill out on to the world of Twitter! Something is definitely going on between Natalie and Karen Gravano. Who still thinks Karen isn't filming Season 5? A war broke out last night between cool Karen and batsh*t crazy Natalie and what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't make mention of it? Looks like my alliances were on the money so far, as the New Blood team attacks Original Girls team Karen and Renee. But enough of my opinions, let's see how this went down in black and white (and blue). 

Natalie has the audacity to attack Karen as a mother? She calls her a dead beat Mom?Yes Karen left her young daughter in Arizona with HER mother, while she came back to film Mob Wives and write her New York Times best selling book Mob Daughter. Karen was worried about her daughter's safety in New York. She was protecting her from possible danger. She wasn't sure if the show would be a success and didn't want to uproot her. She flew back and forth to see her more times than I can count. If that is a bad mother, then Natalie is delusional. But Karen can defend herself.

Natalie drags Renee into her lunatic rant!
Anyone think Karen and Renee are afraid?

Let's face it. Natalie is losing it. The show doesn't premiere till December and she is already attacking Karen and Renee. What's her beef with them anyway? She is just Alicia's sidekick. Note to Natalie: If you can't take the heat in New York, please go back to South Philly and your dead clients!

Where do you suppose Natalie will find
those hard truths and reality?
(I have my suspicions)

Karen had a few choice words of her own. Notice Karen's demeanor. Does she sound concerned? Upset? Worried? Nope. Karen laughs her way through the exchange with a few good pieces of advice for Gnatalie.

Karen just swats her like the annoying little Gnat she is!

So there you have it. The wars are just starting. This is just a little more of a taste of Season 5! Looks like things are heating up on the set and on fire with the cast. Stay tuned because we are on the case!

Mob Wives: Joe and Raquel Getting Married!

A gift from Jennifer Graziano!

How long ago has it been since we first saw Joseph Ferragamo and Raquel on Mob Wives? If I remember correctly, Joe was released from prison and appeared on the show at the end of season two. Then, he and Raquel appeared in season three of Mob Wives, creating a storyline for ex-Mob Wife, Carla Facciolo. Joe and Raquel have been together ever since, and they are soon approaching their wedding day. Looks like the couple is very happy and Joe is getting a second chance in life.

The happy couple finalizing wedding details!

Wedding bells will soon be ringing next month for Joe and Raquel. Joe is making sure to dot all the "i"s and cross all the "t's" as he fills out his application for a wedding license (below).

He looks so serious!

We wish them both a lifetime of happiness and hope to post wedding pictures when the big event occurs.

Congratulations and Best Wishes from our blogging team!

Mob Wives: Season 5 Alliances

I can see this being a scene!

No one in the cast is tweeting much at all these days. I guess they are too busy filming or has VH1 placed a gag order on all of them? Used to be we'd get a few juicy Twitter wars that carried over from the day's events, but everyone is being cautious not to let anything slip. No one is allowed to say Karen is or isn't back this season, even though she seems to be living in New York since the beginning of summer when filming started. No one is saying whether or not Alicia took back her resignation, which made the news, but I don't recall if VH1 accepted it? Still, the cast can't help but tweet a picture here and there and that is enough to make this blogger happy enough to spin it into a blog. So who is aligned with who in Season 5 of Mob Wives? (as if we didn't know).

First we have New Blood, Alicia and Natalie from SOUTH Philly. They are as thick as "thieves," literally and figuratively. Alicia got away with paying a little restitution on the money she admitted taking from the truckers' pension fund and is free to rejoin the cast. Here she is with her "sidekick," Princess Funeral Home, all lovey dovey.

Next we have the "Switzerland" pairing of Ang and Drita (the ex-boxer) who play peacemaker while stabbing their friend, Renee, in the back. That's what they did all last season, and I have no doubt they will do it again this season. Remember how sympathetic they were over poor, poor, pitiful Alicia's pending court case, while at the same time they didn't try to help Renee, who was spiraling out of control with her addiction relapse? Yeah, they are neutral (insert big eye roll). Here is what they have been up to during filming:


"always being by my side"
How touching!

Now who does that leave? Hmmm, let me think. Oh yes, the Original Girls, Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano. I don't need anyone to make it official for me, my gut doesn't lie, Karen is back. From yesterday's blog, the dynamic duo together again:

And there you have it! Three teams, which I suspect are going to be two teams when Switzerland forms an alliance with New Blood. I never did trust Switzerland. Who's team will you be on?

Mob Wives: A "Taste" of Season 5

Renee Tweets this picture on September 10th . . .
Karen is still in New York!

What’s a blogger to do when the show they blog is filming and no one is leaking information? Well, you have to be creative, you have to look for clues, and you have to put the pieces together and try to make sense out of what you know and find on Twitter. That’s what I’m doing, and here is a mixture of fact and speculation for season five, due to premiere in December.

Natalie is still harassing Renee on Twitter
You can see who she is aligned with: Alicia, Drita, Ang

Who’s in the cast next season? Old Blood + New Blood = Bad Blood. We know that Natalie is officially returning, even though I couldn’t figure out why. She is Alicia’s sidekick and Alicia resigned from the show. Natalie has no storyline or “mob ties” in the true sense of the word. She works at her grandfather’s funeral home. She does hair and makeup for clients who can’t complain. Enough said. As for Alicia, I think she is returning to the show, although no one has said so. I come to this conclusion because the long awaiting sentencing and restitution part of her criminal case is over. She doesn’t have to worry about her “image” as a mother. And the girl has to earning a living. You might think I would be disgusted with her return, but I’m not. More on why I’m not will follow below.

Renee Tweeted this picture recently

We definitely know that Drita and Big Ang are returning. That is official. The two “peacemakers,” who manage to stir up trouble while “trying” to calm their friends down, are back to play “Switzerland.” They are never really neutral or show loyalty to “Old Blood.” We saw this play out last season when they sided with Alicia and Natalie (who they both couldn’t stand) against Renee. Renee, who suffered a relapse in her addiction, couldn’t get an ounce of sympathy or compassion from either of her so called “friends.” And you may remember how Drita attacked Renee on the Reunion Show, blindsiding her with things that happened back in season one. It was ugly and left Renee stunned, hurt, and speechless. Renee is not about to forget that.

Yesterday, Renee tweeted this.
In fact, Renee was so upset she wrote a little blog on Instagram about it!

Click to enlarge

Of course Renee is returning. She has plenty to confront Drita about from last season. I hope she confronts Ang too. They both deserve it after last season. But Renee needs an ally. She was out numbered last season when “old blood” became “bad blood.” What to do?

Bring back Karen Gravano! Nothing is official about Karen coming back in season five, but I listed plenty of “evidence” that she is spending a lot of time in New York the past three months. I speculate that Karen will come back and save Mob Wives! Karen has a big beef with Alicia. In the first episode of season four, Alicia opened a can of worms by attacking Karen and her father over the murder of her father in law (a man she never knew). Karen wasn’t able to tell her story, so we wrote a blog trying to cover a little of it for readers, Now, Karen can come back and handle her issues with Alicia face to face. Great storyline, great ratings! And that’s why I will not be upset to see Alicia back in the cast. This season Alicia will earn her money, Karen will see to that.

Mob Wives: Is Karen Gravano Coming Back?


You tell me! I have been doing a little detective work and it seems to me that Karen Gravano has been in New York all summer long. Coincidently, Mob Wives has started filming season 5. I can never resist speculation, especially when the facts add up to the conclusion I want . . . Karen is BACK!

Before you get too excited, I can't exactly confirm my theory with either Jennifer Graziano or Karen because they are locked into that Omerta Code of silence like the gold in Fort Knox. But, I have some tweets that make me think I am right about this . . . please let me know what you think after reading.

Here she is in NYC for July 4th!

On July 12th she is partying with Carla!

On July 16 or 17th she is hanging out with Love!

On July 23rd she is chilling with Renee!

On August 1st she is "Back at it" with Ramona!

On August 12th she is at the gym with Jennifer!

So today, like a good blogger who is really devoted to just one show and one show alone, I reach out to Jenn and ask her to give me something to blog about . . . she replies

"they'll be plenty of that!!"

So we will have plenty to talk about? I already do. Here's a little tidbit that kind of eliminates any doubts I have about Karen coming back. On August 11th, she was here in NYC and LOOKING FOR FURNITURE! Hello!

Is this undeniable proof or what?

So tell me, what do you think? Is Karen coming back to Mob Wives? Or am I delusional and relying on wishful thinking? I sure as hell hope it's true because I don't think I can get through season 5 without her!

Mob Wives: Alicia DiMichele Finally Gets Sentenced!

Alicia tweeted her fans after sentencing

It sure as hell took long enough, but Alicia DiMichele finally got sentenced for her part in the embezzlement from the pension fund of employees in a trucking company she owned with her husband, Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo. Alicia agreed to make restitution of $40,000 (well below the 3 million the union was seeking), said she was sorry and embarassed for her role, and received four years probation. Maybe crime does pay?

Alicia resigned from Mob Wives while her sentencing was pending for fear that being on the show and glamorizing the mob life, would make her "look bad" when facing the judge and result in a harsher sentence. Now that she has made her peace with the justice system and is free to do as she pleases, will she return to the show, which has been filming and due to premiere in December (last I heard)? I think there is a good chance she will. So far they have filmed a garage sale that Big Ang had . . . excuse me if I dont jump for joy.

Meanwhile, I have always hoped that Karen Gravano would return to the show she played a large part in getting on the air. Unfortunately, I can't confirm anything, as both Jenn Graziano and Karen Gravano seem to live by the Omerta code of silence when asked questions. However, wouldn't it be great if Karen and Alicia returned for season five and Karen got the opportunity to address Alicia's comments about her and her father, Sammy? That's a beef that needs to be settled and it's a great storyline. I guess time will tell.

Real Housewives of New York: Ramona and Mario Split

Ramona Singer and Mario Singer

From the Bravo Blog Oct 15, 2010 titled "Together Forever?"

to this Tweet from Ramona . . .

There has been a ton of speculation over whether Mario allegedly cheated on Ramona with Kasey Dexter, or whether it was just a ploy to get the RHONY bigger ratings. They never did use this as a storyline on the show and Ramona was not willing to talk about it at all on part 2 of the Reunion show three days ago. But, soon after the show aired, Ramona tweeted that her marriage to Mario was over. According to reports Mario claimed to have called it off with his "mistress" this spring, but apparently he has been still seeing her and not discretely. They have been photographed together, dining, kissing, and holding hands this summer. Ramona allegedly threw Mario out at the end of July. However, despite Andy's relentless questioning on the Reunion show, Ramona insisted the couple was still together and rumors of Mario's cheating were simply "allegations." LuAnn seemed to contradict Ramona, saying "It's hard when your other half cheats on you." She indicated that Ramona said some cruel things to her regarding the breakup of her marriage and, while she has been very supportive of Ramona during this time, she seemed to get some satisfaction in saying, "Karma's a b*tch." 

I guess Ramona finally realized that when you live your life in a public forum and make your living from being on a reality tv show, you cannot keep certain painful aspects of your life private. As hard as she tried it was impossible to hide when Mario was out flaunting his alleged affair for all the world to see and photograph. He even had the audacity to say on the show "The best cheaters never get caught." Mario didn't try very hard not to get caught. Ramona seems to be done being in denial about it.

Real Housewives of New York: Carole's "Open Relationship" with Russ

Click on picture for larger view and let me know
if I earned my million dollars!

Did anyone hear Carole say she had an open relationship with her then boyfriend, Russ Irwin, last season. Aviva heard it. I could swear I heard it. But, did it really happen or did we imagine it? This is the kind of controversy I love to get to the bottom of. Like most viewers, I love Carole and what she brings to the show: intelligence, wit, a calming influence, good sense, and humor. I love Carole, but I don’t hate Aviva. Aviva brings the drama. I feel some compassion towards her. Her life wasn’t all a piece of cake. She lost her leg, she lost her mother, she was married to Harry and she was raised by a sex maniac. So I am going to cut Aviva plenty of slack and if she is right about this open relationship I want to see it for myself and perhaps earn the million dollars Carole offered to anyone who heard her say she was in an “open relationship,” because she denies it ever saying it.

First of all, what is an “open relationship?” By definition, an open relationship is defined as a couple being in a committed relationship, but are free to “see” other people. What I remember Carole saying that when Russ was in town they were together and when he traveled they were free to “date” other people. But, let’s see if Aviva and I need our ears cleaned or a lesson in open relationships. What did other people hear? Let’s go back in time to before the controversy became a controversy . . .

In August 2012, “Wetpaint” says: “Carole Radizwell . . . her casual, seemingly open relationship with rocker Russ Irwin.” I wonder where they got that from?

In July 2012, “Starcasm” reports: “Carole Radziwill has been extremely open with the fact that her and Russ Irwin have an open relationship. Carole lives in New York City and Russ lives in Los Angeles, and it seems this unconventional arrangement works for them! When they are in the same city, they reunite and do normal boyfriend/girlfriend activities. When they are apart, they live as single people — they even go on dates! ‘Russ and I are dating, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go to dinner with another man, or meet someone else for drinks,’ Carole explains.” That certainly seems to fit the definition.

In June, 2012, writes: “But it don’t mean a thing to Carole, nor to Russ. They are adults in a long-distance, ‘cool, casual’ (which I guess just means open) long-distance relationship.”

In fact, if you Google Carole Radizwell and “open relationship,” you will get literally dozens of blogs all saying that Carole had an open relationship with Russ. Did we all make the same mistake as Aviva? Or, did Carole’s choice of words describing her relationship lead us all to believe the same thing? 

And then there’s the July 2012 article by the New York Daily News who interviewed Russ Irwin at the time and this is what Russ had to say: ““It’s not easy to date or to try to have a relationship when you’re on the road,” he says, “but Carole and I get along great, and we keep the relationship open, and that’s one of the ways we make it work.” So even Russ understood it was an open relationship!

Finally, the June 11, 2012 BRAVO Blog says: “Over furs, Carole gives Aviva in update about her dating life. She's in a "situation" with Russ. They date when he's around, but when he's on the road (playing AEROSMITH SONGS) they are their own people.” 

It seems to me the evidence is pretty conclusive that even if Carole didn’t use the words “open relationship,” everyone heard “open relationship.” Aviva and I don’t need our ears cleaned. We don’t need a lesson on open relationships. Carole needs to own what she said or implied because even Russ thought the relationship was open and wouldn't he know? What is right, is right. Aviva is right. Did I earn the one million Carole offered? I would love to collect it!

Real Housewives of New York: Finale's What The Hell Moments S6 E20

"I'll hit the ceiling or else I'll tear up this town!"

“The Last Leg” or the last straw? Aviva cannot stand being called “fake” any longer, so she throws her leg across the table to make her point. You want fake? This is the only thing fake about me she tells her insensitive co-stars. And with that dramatic toss Aviva shows she has a leg up on everyone else! Warning: I am going to get all my leg and foot jokes in this blog!

Sonja hurt her ankle after being ditched by Harry. Ramona and Kristen show up and ask what happened. Sonja tells them Harry and LuAnn left the party together and got into a cab. She heard that LuAnn told him she was single. Sonja says she fell on the street chasing a cab. Boo Hoo Sonja is crying her eyes out over Harry. If it was me I’d be celebrating, but these women never do what I would do. Sonja is confused and in pain. Kristen is confused (what else is new?). Ramona is ranting (what else is new?). Sonja says Harry blew it the first time around with her and he is blowing it the second time too. (I’m not touching this line.) Then Sonja goes down the stairs with boots that have heels at least four inches high . . . Do I believe she hurt her foot? Is anything real on this show? Carole tweeted that Sonja twisted her ankle because she was drunk not chasing a cab. Now that I can believe! But maybe Sonja’s leg just wants to give Aviva’s leg a run for her money? Some people are so competitive!

"I wouldn't touch Harry with a 10 foot pole!"

And now LuAnn drops by Sonja’s. Really?  LuAnn takes a seat at the table with Sonja. Sonja accuses LuAnn of leaving the party with Harry. LuAnn says Harry left the party and followed the others, not her. LuAnn is angry that Sonja would accuse her of having anything to do with Harry. Lu says she wouldn’t touch him with a 10 foot pole, been there done that. Sonja can’t stay mad at her especially not over Harry. Sonja really doesn’t seem that angry at all for all the crying she did a few minutes ago, but she wants Harry to do some explaining. Harry has to step up to the plate and start talking! Maybe he will put his Foot in his mouth?

Carole and Heather are shopping for bags and find one they love that costs $9,000. I think we refer to that as costing an “arm and a leg.” Very nice. Heather brings up Jax and his hearing issues. They got a second opinion from a doctor who said they probably won’t be able to reverse the hearing loss. It’s confusing when doctors have different opinions. Carole relates because she went to different doctors for her husband and says you just have to pick one doctor that you trust and listen to him. Jax feels his hearing is fine, so no surgery.

By the way I am skipping over the scenes with Kristen because they are really boring so check another blog if you are a fan of hers.

Sonja meets Harry for lunch. He wants to talk about what happened and move on. Sonja says he left her at the club and got in a cab with LuAnn. And, what’s worse is that it happened the same night he says he wants to commit to her, just minutes after he gave her the ring. Someone told him LuAnn was drinking and he shouldn’t let her leave alone. He says nothing happened. Sonja asks him how can he leave her at the party. He says it was stupid and he is sorry. Sonja says she was ready for a commitment, but he isn’t. She returns his ring and says “let’s keep things the way they were.” I guess Sonja isn’t going “commando” for Harry any time soon.

Next up are Carole’s apartment renovations. Heather and Kristen drop by and love it what she has done to it. Kristen likes the fact that there is no kitchen. Heather pops the champagne and Carole says she loves her apartment. And seriously, the apartment is stunning! Carole gets a text that Aviva is joining them at the Team Sonja party. Kristen says Aviva is an outsider at this point for not going to Montana. Heather and Carole aren’t thrilled with Aviva and her phobias. Carole intends to be politely rude. She feels when Aviva is gone it feels like a vacation. They all toast to their common dislike of Aviva. But what if Aviva was really sick and they are all kicking her when she is down? Will Aviva be able to go toe-to-toe with them about this?

Ramona and Carole are having a chat and Ramona tells her she dated Fabio. Then she brags about how she and Mario had instant chemistry and are still together. I think Ramona dated Pinot before dating Fabio and Mario.

Aviva clearly doesn't like where
 this dinner conversation is headed!

Team Sonja Party! LuAnn, Heather, Ramona, Carole, Kristen are all there. Carole says she doesn’t think she is on Team Sonja, but nevertheless she was invited. Sonja wants to celebrate how well things are going for her. Sonja makes her grand entrance. And then here comes Aviva, putting her best foot forward, is all dressed in red like a movie star from the old MGM movies. She says she came to support Sonja. Sonja wants to give a speech celebrating all the people there who help her develop her brand. But before Sonja opens her mouth, an obnoxious Ramona berates her for not saying hello to her friends first, after all, they have been there an hour. LuAnn keeps calling Sonja’s Team bizarre and laughing. Ramona says Sonja’s speech was a book and it made no sense at all. Ramona and Heather are saying Aviva is fake for not going to Montana and making up the whole asthma excuse. Aviva is upset because they are all avoiding her none of them ever asked her how she is feeling. Sonja isn’t too thrilled with some of “her friends” for laughing at her speech. Every one of the housewives is against Aviva, and Heather decides to confront her at the table. Aviva doesn’t understand what is happening at first, like she has been blindsided. Carole says she has been the most horrible person to everyone here. They accuse her of lying! Aviva has had it! Aviva screams my doctor must have lied to me.

The proof is in the x-ray!

Then Aviva whips out her x-rays to show them that either her asthma is real or her doctor is creating an elaborate lie. Aviva doesn’t want be called a liar. I think we have found Aviva’s “Achilles Heel!” Then, Aviva takes a jab at Carole’s writing. She feels this attack goes back to what she said about Carole’s book. Ramona thinks Aviva didn’t want to go to Montana because she didn’t want leave her husband. Aviva says that missing the trip was purely due to illness. Aviva tries to explain that the cause of her asthma is reflux and she had to eat differently to get better and lost ten pounds because of it. Aviva finds it very hurtful that no one believes her. Then Heather announces she wants to go home, this is all a waste of her time.

First it's on the table . . .

. . . then flung to the floor
The last time I saw it, it walked out the door.

Out with the leg! Somebody cue the DJ to play “Footloose!” Aviva takes off her leg and waves it yelling, “This is the only thing fake about me! Everything else is real, everything else! I am sick of it.” Aviva puts her foot down for the last time. She flings it on the table. And then, from the table, she flings it out to the floor. Everyone looks horrified. Aviva says Heather is very mean. Carole picks up the leg, returns it to Aviva and tells her she needs help. Then Carole quips you know what they say “it ain’t over till the fat lady sings or the skinny lady throws her leg.” You have to love Carole’s wit.

Carole retrieves the leg, 
while LuAnn is still in a tizzy.

That’s it for season 6 with a two part reunion show waiting in the wings. Will there be a season 7 for New York? I think Andy is working on it, but I did hear everyone was fired except Ramona, who will be full-time and Aviva, who will be part-time (which she pretty much was this season). I am not happy with this development. If I were Andy I would keep Heather, Carole, Aviva and LuAnn and add a couple of NEW drama divas. If you think you can do without Aviva, think again. She caused drama in every episode she was in, and all they did was talk about her in every episode that she went missing.

Real Housewives of New York: What The Hell Moments S6 E19

Carole's stunning entrance to her 50th Party

“There’s Something About Harry” is tonight’s episode, but frankly I have nothing nice to say about Harry. Nothing at all. I would have called this episode "There's Something About Carole's Party" because wait until you see all her "suggestions."

Heather is going to help Carole plan her 50th Birthday. She is working with Carole’s assistants. They need live butterflies for the center pieces. And, Carole also wants one of the old chandeliers, from her apartment, moved to the venue of the party. She also wants a man walking an invisible dog, a harvest moon in the trees, pistols, 5,000 white rose flower petals, polished apples, headless mannequins, 1,000 white lights in the trees . . . and who the hell knows what else! However, she makes it clear she doesn’t want Aviva.

Sonia and Harry discuss their relationship and where it’s going . . . probably to hell in a picnic basket.

Kristin is ready with the tissues!

Kristen and Josh are seeing someone about their issues with tissues. Dr. Ryan (will have his hands) Fuller with these two. He looks too young to solve their problems. Geez if  Commando Sonja was there she would be making the moves on the young doctor and say adios to Harry. Josh says Kristen picks arguments on small things, minute details that don’t matter. Kristen always feels she is on the back burner in Josh’s life and that work always comes first. Kristen feels she supports Josh with his work. Kristen thinks they made progress and that Josh is going to change . .  excuse me while I die laughing.

I refuse to comment about Ramona and Avery packing 20 pairs of shoes for college. Naturally Avery is a mini-me diva of her mother and that is too much for me to take.

Another positive scene cut short for fabricated drama

Aviva is in the designer fake leg store. Aviva is helping a lady who needs a leg. Why can’t we see more scenes like this? Something positive that could actually help and encourage others with similar disabilities? God forbid we spend a little time on these shows to help make the world a better place.

Sonja needs some guidance concerning her relationship with Harry and she gets a tarot card reader, Thomas John, to tell her what she needs to know. He tells her there is a devil in her inner circle, a woman who is very deceptive. It’s a brunette, but her name is not Carole. Hmmm. Could it be LuAnn? LuAnn seems to think that is where this is going from her tweets.

Oh my God! I can't have a snake handler? Carole will kill me!

Back to Heather and her planning. It got too be too much for even her to carry out, so she hired a party planner. Carole knows she can trust Heather to do a great job and if she can‘t, she will get someone who can. Carole pops in to see the progress and help out. But Carole finds lots of fault with things, the details aren’t quite right. Heather tells her there will be no snake handler because Dept of Health won’t allow it in a place where food is being served. Carole is disappointed to say the least. What is a party without a snake handler? Meanwhile Carole decides things are going so smoothly she is going for a manicure. The theme of this party? Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It’s interesting.

The party is beautiful. Most of the people are dressed as evil (black) with a few decked out in white (good). There are dead butterflies floating in the centerpiece bowls, how chic. LuAnn says she and Jacques broke up and she is pretty sad and cries. Ramona, upon hearing the news, is crass and obnoxious as usual. This woman doesn’t have a caring bone in her body. Finally Carole arrives. She feels sexy and empowered and strong. She is dressed all in red! Carole and Kristen are supportive of Lu.

Heather joins the pity party for LuAnn. Lu feels a huge void in her life right now. She cries. Carole says it’s her party and she can cry if she wants to (how clever). Heather says she has a very good little toast prepared. Harry is making moves on Sonja. He wants to take their relationship to another level, he is serious about her, and he gives her a ring to show how much he cares for her. Sonja falls for it. Here comes the toast! It’s an email Carole sent Heather about what she doesn’t want to have included the toast. So bff Heather reads the entire email as her toast with everything that Carole didn’t want said. Sonja has a fit when she finds out Lu broke up with Jacques. She is the last to know. Sonja finds a way to make Lu’s breakup all about her. What can I say?

Lu Ann and Heather seem to be the entertainment and Ramona does nothing but complain again. I think they were drunk. By the way, it’s too bad Aviva wasn’t invited to this party because it was boring.

A cozy Lu and Harry disappear from the party!

Out comes the cake. Carole thought the party turned out perfectly. Sonja tells Ramona that Harry just gave her a ring. Ramona wants the details. Ramona wants to know if she is happy. Sonja tells her she put the ring in her purse. Ramona says that’s not a good sign. Sonja wants to leave and she is looking for Harry. Uh oh. It seems that Harry left with LuAnn without saying a word. To be continued . . . In next week’s finale, Thank God!
