Real Housewives of New York City Week 8 Recap
Typos are lovingly provided by Jose Cuervo.
I love this show. Bored of the wedding storyline, but still love it. I’m going to bullet point last week so I’m caught up and ready for a regular recap this week. Important to note I watched the trailer for RHOC and am so excited to blog that train wreck I can hardly stand it. I skipped last season because Vicki was too painful, but I’m ready to tackle it again. Jose Cuervo will be my writing partner so those bitches better buckle up because I’m ready to have my way with them. Back to NYC, here we go!
