The biggest Housewife miscalculation comes in the form of picking on the one person who is NOT an asshole. Ganging up on Tins was a major misstep. It made Ro, Dor, and Son look like old, jealous hags who have nothing better to do than gossip about a woman who looks like she could be their daughter.
And, hate to break it to you, B, but you'll suffer too if you want to go at Tins at the reunion. No one is going to excuse that shit - you're just outing yourself as a jealous bitch who can't stand to see a younger, prettier woman be happy or successful.
Lu is behaving like a monster but clearly the ladies are signing up for the emotional battery. I'm 99% sure production forced them to go to the cabaret to see Lu. I don't think they wanted to be there, and I don't think Lu wanted them there. Ro got a pass because she organized the competing event.
Cemented feelings: I wouldn't ever want to be Bethenny, even with all her money and her impossibly thin body. Tragedy just stalks that woman. Misery is her constant companion.
Babs is gonna catch hell for it, but I don't see why - even Lu routinely acknowledges that she is not a great singer. Everyone knows that cabaret is based on her Bravolebrity status and nothing more. If not for the arrest, the drinking, the failed marriages, and the tumble in the bushes, of course she wouldn't have a show. We are all in on the joke.
I think Lu is aware she needs to bring her "persona" to that show, and "voice" is far down on the list. Is she off the deep about it? Sure. But for all the try-hard ho's who've pushed their caterwauling at us (Kim Z, Missy Gorga, Danielle Staub, Staub's offspring, I could go on..) Lu is the only one who seems to be making a decent living off of live performing.
The art of cabaret is 90% chatting and relating to the audience. I have not seen her show, but I'd imagine she had to go over lines, jokes, etc. It's not like we see her warming up her voice.
Anyway, I'm sick of the ladies picking on Barb. I hope Barb doesn't come back, just because I don't like to see women ganged up on and mistreated. She didn't ruin Sonja's surprise - RAMONA DID - by purposely scheduling it during Lu's show! HELLOOOO
