From what I heard, it sounded like Luann was calling around a number of people to see where she could get $6M for the house, including Bethy to ask Dennis if he could finance her. Luann was manic, whatever that means, in her eagerness and urgency for the house, but she wasn't asking for a gift of $6M but a loan, which she obviously wouldn't qualify for with a mortgage lender. But a guy in a quasi-shady financing business might lend it to her.
I thought the lighting was unflattering, and the cameras just were not using the filters they used on these women most of the time during the season. Their plastic surgeries and fillers and botox were in full relief on that set, and they looked every bit as gruesome as those people on the Twilight Zone episode where their faces molded and froze into the shape of the gruesome masks they had been wearing.
Worst dressed goes to Sonja with her 80's prom dress knock-off.
She must have taken her advice to Aviva: Take a XANAX!
What the text cleared up for me was that Luann didn't know if Dorinda considers John her boyfriend and takes him on Housewives things as her date. We haven't seen much of him on camera lately, so if she doesn't bring him around, I can see why Lu wouldn't automatically invite him. So, in her mind, it was up to Dorinda to ask and she shouldn't have waited until the day of the event to ask. I get that. We often wonder whether they are actually in a relationship or not since Dorinda keeps him at arms length.
