Spice Up Your 'Wives

Bravotv.com's Associate Editor thinks there should be a pole on hand at every Housewives gathering.

on Nov 15, 2012

Drag queens, surprise penises, and plenty of Elsa -- this episode had everything you could want and more. Except the red broom and Norman Baker. (Sorry, I just can't let them go!)

Elsa and Lea meet for a little wine and cheese. Just no mozzarella. (Side note: Did anyone else think Lea pronounced mozzarella oddly? Maybe that's just me being a jaded New Yorker.) They were also sipping from perhaps the largest wine glass I've ever seen. Seriously, they were like jugs. And while they tried to talk through Marysol's issues with Elaine, what it turned into was Lea trying to explain how drag queens work. Good times.

Then over to Lisa Pliner's house for a little shoe fashion show and some Elaine Lancaster drama. Allegedly Marysol told Lisa Pliner not to hire Elaine as the MC for the event, which of course then got back to Elaine because she's BFF with her. This was clearly the snub that broke the drag queen's back, because Elaine went on a hunt for Marysol, holding out that fan like a divining rod. And when she confronted her, Marysol responded by...running the other way? Elaine actually chased her through the party to find her again, where Marysol found some backup in her friend Lauren Foster, who we learned is trans and fabulous. She may win for best line of the episode when she announced, "I won't be bullied by that Housewife with a wiener." But after all of that, there still seems to be no resolution between Marysol and Elaine.

Prediction: I don't think Elaine will give up confronting Marysol. Ever.
