Real Housewives of New York City Week 6 Recap
Typos are lovingly sponsored by Jose Cuervo.
I was in Australia for a couple of days and missed last week, so here it is. Thanks for waiting. Just a quick note that while in Oz, I spent some time with the Real Housewives of Melbourne, and hearing them speak of the American Housewives franchises was great. Just like us they are fans of the shows, and listening to Jackie imitate Phaedra is everything. Enjoy and I’ll be back later with my recap of tonight’s episode.
