'The Real Housewives of New York City' recap: Pinot Grigio, the 8th Housewife

You know what these ladies really need? Therapy. A reality check. A day job that involves clocking in somewhere. Duh, they need a break! And wouldn't it be so adorable if that break involved an aggressively obvious nod toSex and the City 2?! Sonja, her gym hair tousled just so ("looks like when you crawl out of bed!" growled LuAnn), first pooh poohed the idea of Italy.

Ramona's nervous is all, what with her loving her family, unlike the rest of these bitches. She's worried about going to a third-world country where they don't respect women and what if she doesn't come back? No spoilers! Alex is on board because she's always wanted to try cous cous. Morocco is on Jill's bucket list and Bobby says she can go. Cindy's in. And Kelly? Ooh, this one is tough. Remember Scary Island when everyone bullied her and she had to gracefully excuse herself from the situation? Wait, no, I don't. I remember someone stabbing a pretend knife in the air and shoving gummy candy in their mouth while crying out non sequiturs like "You're a cook!" and "Al Sharpton, Al Sharpton!" And then I remember hearing that Bravo producers had to escort her home for her own safety and that of the other women. Read More...
