It’s amazing this recap was even written when there’s a Taylor/Calvin/Katy fandango to discuss. But I won’t go there… Well, I may drop little side notes, but let’s get back to RHONY: We’re still at Joanne’s Trattoria in the garden. I’m assuming half the restaurant has left due to both the cameras and the endless vagina talk. Luann is suuuuuper pissed; she doesn’t feel like any of the women are happy for her (which they kinda aren’t), so she storms out. She also has a cold, which takes her already deep voice into Harvey Fierstein territory. We do get more info on Sonja’s past rendezvous with Tom: The pair would meet up at random UES haunts when they were both single. “That’s what adults do,” explained Sonja. Sure.

Luann’s departure does nothing to douse the drama, though. As soon as she leaves, Jules perks up and goes on a rampage against Bethenny. She gets all upset that Bethenny makes fun of her intelligence and that both Bethenny and Carole both make light of her eating disorder. She also claims Bethenny talked about her marriage, of which I have no recollection. It honestly feels like Jules is upset and stressed out over stuff in her deteriorating marriage, so she’s feeling overly sensitive. Also, she does do insane things like bake silverware into calzones and I can see where the ladies might find such behavior a tad odd. Basically, Bethenny has no time for this. She feels like Jules should be thanking her for not freaking out over the eating disorder (Bethenny has, like, PTSD from her mother’s own issues).

Jules then admits she actually puked up her food a few days ago and that she’s still very much dealing with her illness. But the women, especially Carole, have a point: If you don’t want anyone to talk about your eating disorder, then don’t bring up your eating disorder.

It’s all getting very serious when Ramona finally emerges from her meatball plate and exclaims she wants to take everyone to Mohegan Sun. She wants to rent a bus and gamble and take everyone to a Bobby Flay restaurant. Everyone basically agrees just to put an end to the terrible conversation.
