'RHONY': Goodbye St. Barths
The dramatic trip ends on the Bravo series.
Aviva Drescher and Sonja Morgan break out their claws once again, and LuAnn de Lesseps is placed in the hot seat by Heather Thomson on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York.

Note: Spoilers ahead if you haven’t watched Monday’s episode, “What Happens in St. Barths Doesn’t Stay in St. Barths.”

The divas of New York are still in shock over Aviva’s explosive arrival on the beautiful beaches of St. Barths. Who can blame them? The newest housewife went nuclear over the slight she felt Ramona Singer and Sonja made by not giving her a ticker tape parade for coming to the island.

As much as the ladies sympathized with Aviva’s flying phobia, they were completely done with her constant discussion about it, not to mention their “poor” treatment of her. Aviva’s fellow new girl Heather summed it up when she stated Aviva needed to let it go already.

Heather and Carole Raziwill pointed out to Aviva that “Ramonja” did go out of their way to welcome her on the trip. Sonja especially was attacked without provocation. For someone who’s so disgusted by “Ramonja,” Aviva sure loves chatting about them!

Meanwhile, Countess LuAnn worked overtime to give her boyfriend Jacques Azoulay all the attention she could muster. She wanted to make up for her island adventure with Tomas. Heather decided to put on her junior detective hat, and attempted to find out what exactly is going on with Lu and her live-in love. Ms. Thomson was stunned when LuAnn revealed she and Jacques were going forward with having a baby.

Aviva and Sonja decided to once again hash out their issues over dinner. Sonja proved not to be in a forgiving mood when Aviva tried to apologize about all the name-calling. Will these ladies just let it go already? Of course, if they did, this show wouldn’t be nearly as much fun!

Buzz Moments

OMG!: The ladies agreeing Aviva is milking her ordeal. For someone who hated the trip, she does love talking about it.

Thank you, TV gods: Heather calling out Aviva on her “woe is me” attitude. Come  down off the cross, honey, someone else needs the wood!

Awk-ward: Carole coming face-to-face with Sonja’s friend Peyman, who asked her out but never got a returned phone call from the Princess. You can feel her discomfort coming out of your TV.

Hotness: The men of the RHONY cooking for their women. Nothing’s more sexy than a man who can heat things up in and out of the kitchen.

Fab-u-lous: The ladies’ NY attire. Gotham better watch out, these ladies are out to claim their city.

Can. Not. Wait.: I’m super excited for Ramona squaring off with Aviva and also her dad George. You don’t touch Ramona, plain and simple.
