Bring it on!â Vicki told a table full of Housewives. Unless youâre going to try and make her feel in any way self-reflective, in which case keep it to yourself or prepare for a teary walk-out scene. Alexis got on her high horse and started counting up all the women who found Vicki obnoxious. (If Iâd been invited to the lunch I wouldâve given Vicki a distracted âmmm, sortaâ hand and then a half-hearted âwoo hoo!â to the waiter for another round of mimosas.) Vicki, of course, did not appreciate Alexis assuming the helm of criticism and stomped off, complaining of being attacked.
Lynne had dizzily excused herself to the ladyâs room so she missed the whole fight and Tamra was struggling to use two pieces of flatware at the same time. So it was left to Briana to break down the argument in terms the ladies could understand. She started making excuses for her motherâs behavior, and why blind-siding her with a confrontation was a bad idea, before giving up altogether. âIâm 22 years old,â she sputtered â to herself, to the production crew, to America! â âI donât want to get in you guysâ BS. Iâm a nurse! I have my own life!â Oh how I love me some Briana. Though my affection for her dimmed somewhat when she blamed the whole fracas on the sheer number of gathered women. âThis is why I donât hang out with girls!â she said. How that tired line chaps my hide. Iâve heard it spoken from too many women who almost sound like theyâre bragging. I can hang with the dudes, man, but broads? They get to talking about their feelings and somebody gets hurt or hormonal or bitchy or whiny and inevitably somebody winds up with a Lee press-on nail stabbed in their back. So, a quick rant from me to the Brianas out there and the women who raise them: (1) If you as a female donât like women as a gender, it might simply be that you fear itâs you who are unlikable. (2) Hang with different women. They come in all types. (3) If women raise their little girls to be princesses (Tamra! Lynne! Alexis!), and teach them to crave compliments about their adorableness above all else, it shouldnât come as a surprise when these same little girls grow into women who are threatened and unkind when they find themselves alongside other women in a room.
