Real Housewives of New York City Recap

What happens in St. Barths, won’t always stay in St. Barths. Hopefully, Luann is ready for the repercussions that will likely follow after her ‘pirate booty call’ is exposed.

On the Aug. 27 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, the ladies arrive in France for an exotic getaway — the liquor is flowing and tempers are flaring!

Sonja Morgan is more than a little tipsy when she sits down to her first dinner with the ladies on the island. After suggesting that she’d “f–k” the chef if Carole Radziwill were to fire him, Sonja starts to dwell on her failed marriage.

Sonja then addresses Heather Thomson by rehashing the toaster oven photo shoot. Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps, and Carole all clear out as they want nothing to do with the conversation.

Carole’s boyfriend Russ comes by and meets all the ladies. Carole and Russ have been dating for three years, but only see each other here and there.

The next day, the ladies are a bit bitter about a man “crashing their vacation” until Sonja sets them straight — pointing out that Carole sees Russ every six months and puts up with the presence of their husbands all the time. Hence, she deserves a good romp in the sack here and there.

After a day lounging on the beach, they all head out to dinner at a place owned by Sonja’s friend. When LuAnn spots a guy named Tomas, Sonja says she’s “like white on rice.” Tomas is dressed like Johnny Depp and asks the women to take part in his onstage pirate show. That’s where everything goes south!

The ladies wake up the next morning and recall LuAnn coming home with a man. She says she had a group of old Italian friends come by the house. But Heather swears she saw Tomas the night before — in their house! The ladies ask LuAnn about her night with Tomas and she denies any wrongdoing.

Unfortunately, LuAnn’s microphone catches her asking a friend to deny that Tomas was there the night before. LuAnn lets her friend know that the ladies are onto her and no one can know that Tomas was over.

Next week, we learn more about LuAnn’s night alone with Tomas, and Aviva Drescher arrives in St. Barths!
