The ladies return from their trip to St. Barth’s only to find that the drama followed them all the way home!

On the Sept. 17 episode of The Real Housewives of New York CityLuAnn de Lesseps tries her best to keep her alleged hookup with Tomas under wraps, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill pound a few back at a gay bar, and Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher end their friendship.

Upon their arrival back in New York City, no one can stop rehashing their trip — particularly Aviva who is still “ranting and raving” about how no one laid out a red carpet for her husband Reid. (Get over it already, honey.)

But one thing that no one is talking about — LuAnn’s alleged hookup with Tomas. While LuAnn hangs all over Jacques at a dinner party, everyone wonders what he knows, but no one says a word.

Is it bad that I was desperately hoping someone would spill the beans?

LuAnn still wants a baby and tells Heather her plans to start IVF treatments.

Heather and Carole can’t wait to get drunk and put the trip behind them. They head to a local gay bar where they pound back a few shots. Carole admits that Aviva can be a little self righteous. (A little? That’s the biggest understatement of the year!) Heather compares Aviva to a teacher who slams a ruler down when you don’t pay attention to her. (Nice!)

“For somebody who had a miserable time in St. Barths, she sure loves to relive it,” Heather says to the cameras of Aviva.

Finally, Heather tells Aviva, “You’re being me, me, me, me, me. Let it go and move on already.”

In the final scene, Aviva invites Sonja out to dinner and tries to make amends for what happened in St. Barth’s. Aviva tries to explain that calling Sonja low-class white trash was just a slip of the tongue. And she claims to have been duped by Ramona Singer!

Aviva tells Sonja that she lacks character and she’s the only friend of hers to tell her the truth. (Please! I’d rather watch Sonja drink and have a good time than listen to Aviva rant and rave about St. Barth’s for another episode!)

Points go to Sonja for telling Aviva she’s over it, there is no friendship and justly walking out.

How do YOU feel about tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers?
