I thought it was funny how all along, LuAnn was saying she didn't know the guy she hooked up with was married. And then later whispered to whomever next to her that, "I thought he was separating from his wife." Ha!
Finally caught up on NYC. It's nice to know that at the end of the day, the ladies can all hang together and do dinner. That's exactly why the original cast of Beverly Hills worked so well, before they (okay, Adrienne... then Kim) started turning on one another, because they did the exact same.
It felt like a clean way to end the season, rather than feeling dirty. It was a good season overall. Not epic, like Seasons 2 or 3, but fun. It had its very real moments, and it had its manufactured moments. But a definite improvement from Seasons 5 & 6.
Bethenny may get a "free pass" versus Heather at the constant interjecting, but there is just something off-putting by Heather's personality. It's her misguided, ill-informed attempts at having the final "wise" word in the conversation. And I'm sorry, but she was not supportive of silly ol' Sonja. Bethenny showed genuine concern; Heather was looking for clever sound bytes.
"A" for effort, Miss de Lesseps! She did not let up on her anger towards Heather and Carole, other than the hug-it-out truce at the end, which was hilarious! I think the ladies were dog tired (see: Ramona sleeping!) and probably a lil slap-happy. I love this version of LuAnn, and her original castmates are in agreement.
P.S. The newfound closeness between LuAnn and Ramona is all sorts of awesome. Give me one more season of them, Bethenny, and whomever else, and watch it either blossom or crumble apart.
They sure like to put LSV in the "hot guys of B&B" promos, but then use him sparingly. I admit, he used to be kind of wooden, especially during his early GL days, but he's greatly improved. And quite frankly, Carter is the greatest catch of them all: super-successful job (plus, he's got like 3 or 4 job professions under his belt... talk about job security!), he's got no ex-girlfriend or baby mama drama, plus HE FINE!
But by all means, let's lust after mama's boy Wyatt or wishy-washy Liam instead.
Well, I do think it's a reverse race to see which of the two will go first. That said, it seems those behind-the-scenes at DAYS are hell-bent on getting a renewal. And they have allies at NBC, too. NBC's tent poles are The Today Show, The Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live, and Days of Our Lives. If they're making even a tiny profit, it's a good thing.
I thought the same thing. Certainly during the 2.0 reboot of 2011, it seemed that any & all egos left the building, so they could focus on putting out a great product, and more importantly, STAYING ON THE AIR!
The promo looks great! A lil too Chad/Abby heavy (they're okay, but they're no supercouple...) but I'll take it. The serial killer stuff looks good, and was that Bo & Hope's house interior returning?! (Why do I get excited about sets? Oh, that's right. Because it's not a small blue room or wall of leaves!)
DAYS had been a chore for me for quite some time now. Save for a few storyline arcs and Kristen reappearances, it's been mostly a chore for the past 3 years. Within the past couple weeks, I actually find myself watching it first at the end of the day.
Meanwhile, B&B has taken a nosedive post-Aly's death. They need to get it together. They've been so solid for the strong majority of the past 3-4 years by contrast. Now, it seems my two favorites have flipped in quality and my overall interest.
That sounds like a great line-up of ladies! Even those I'm not a super huge fan of. Interested in the Kim Fields and Sheree business. My only single gripe is the return of Porsha, yet again, even after she was demoted last season. Hopefully her presence will be as important as Jennifer Gilbert's in NYC Season 3 (props to you if you remember her)
So, NYC is airing their 3rd part of the reunion tonight? I'm guessing it's been a ratings dud? That usually seems to be the case, whenever the last leg of a reunion is banished to a Thursday night.
Actually, I just checked, and 1.3 million is right in line with what they were getting all season. (Meanwhile, I'm 6 episodes behind The Have & Have Nots and it looks like they're still killing it in the ratings, surprisingly)
