The ladies of Bravo‘s Real Housewives of New York City are leaving the country, but don’t worry, they’re bringing all the drama with them! (Does that count as a carry-on?) Morocco will never be the same! Find out what happens in the first of three wild episodes after the jump!
Housewives in the heat with bad blood brewing and no access to Ramona’s dear pinot grigio? Um… Yes, please!
The Real Housewives of New York City are off on the “trip of a lifetime.” After touching down in Morocco, Cindy Barshop, Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and LuAnn de Lesseps arrive at their swanky digs, greeted by the staff. Once they take a tour and settle in, the ladies celebrate with shots — of tea.
Ramona Singer, Alex McCord, and Sonja Morgan are taking a separate plane and arriving a day later (who says there are cliques on Housewives — oh, we do!).
Not even at the house yet, Ramona is getting on LuAnn’s nerves. Apparently, she’s sent a list of demands ahead of her arrival, and among other things, has asked that the staff unpack her bags for her, have her bed made with sheets that have a thread count of no less than 600, weights, and of course, you guessed it — plenty of pinot.
LuAnn and the staff greet “the blondes” at the door. She offers the ladies a drink, but Sonja Morgan is more concerned about someone stealing her luggage, so she goes outside to check on it.
As she takes the ladies on a tour of the property, LuAnn introduces “the blondes” to the hostess, who Ramona tells that she needs someone to unpack her bags – immediately.
Sonja gives her BFF a hand in going through her clothes, while Cindy, Jill, LuAnn, and Kelly have drinks out by the pool and discuss Ramona’s “renewed” appearance, which they think is due to some “work,” and porn.
Cindy excuses herself to go up to her room for a few minutes, but when she gets there, she notices that all of her hangers are missing. With Ramona and Sonja still going through Ramona’s clothes, she asks them if they by chance took them, but the ladies both say that they didn’t, and mock her as she walks down the hall.
Little do they know, Cindy’s still within earshot and can hear everything they’re saying about her, so she walks back to the room and let’s them know before heading back out to the pool to tell Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn what happened.
LuAnn takes off to get more hangers for anyone who needs them, asking Ramona, Alex, and Sonja if they took Cindy’s. When the ladies explain that Cindy made a big deal out of nothing, LuAnn is surprised, thinking that the newbie needs to learn to pick her battles when it comes to the other Housewives.
Later, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan decide that they want to go for a ride to relax. LuAnn lets them know that the ladies had all planned to go shopping and asked them to come along with them if they really wanted to get out of the house. They turn her down and say goodbye, and LuAnn goes to tell Kelly, Cindy, and Jill that they left. Curious as to why they would find a ride in the desert relaxing, after such a long trip, Jill says that she remembers Sonja telling her that there was a hotel she wanted to go to for a manicure, but Kelly quickly points out that neither of them get manicures at home, so why would they start now? One thought — men! As they chat, the ladies start talking about Sonja’s “way of life,” bringing up the fact that she likes to appear wealthy, but in reality, she’s living in her ex-husband’s house, which Kelly says is very unorganized and messy. LuAnn doesn’t find it appropriate for Kelly to air Sonja’s dirty laundry, but — has she seen the Real Housewives before? Isn’t that what we’re all here for?
The brunettes hit the town for some shopping and surprise, surprise, run into some friends of Jill Zarin’s who have a home there in Morocco. They invite all of the ladies to their house for a birthday party, but when Jill mentions that Ramona Singer is there with them, her friend Brad scoffs, noting that he and Ramona aren’t currently on the best of terms.
When they get back to the house, the ladies are surprised to find Ramona and Sonja VERY drunk. Again, Sonja lets everyone know that she’s not wearing any underwear, and Jill tells Ramona that she ran into Brad while they were out.
Just then, LuAnn announces that she has a surprise for the ladies as they’re sipping on their wine.
Later, the ladies head out to Brad’s house (which was actually a bed & breakfast!) for his birthday party. Again, Sonja and Ramona embarrass the rest of the ladies, with Ramona continuously on her phone texting, refusing to drink anything but pinot, and Sonja drunk off her a$$!
After some dancing and snake charming, for a second, it seems as though the ladies might be able to get along for at least the rest of the night — but we know better!
Do the ladies know something that Ramona doesn’t????
Next week, the mayhem in Morocco continues! Be sure to tune in on Thursday, June 2 at 10|9c on Bravo!
