I admitted here before that I had never watched the Housewives until Kelly Bensimon had the breakdown seen round the Internet. After seeing the “Crazy” episode, I thought they all act deranged. After last night’s episode, my first impression holds true.
The summary: Kelly Bensimon continued to act like a lunatic. Jill and Bobby come to St. John. Alex makes faces, acts like a 10 year old. Kelly leaves. Jill and Bobby leave. Bridal shower somewhere in there. Snooze. Kelly meets up with LuAnn and tries to explain things to her and the countess is all “Huh? Wha? You crazy!” Jill wears ridiculous figure skating outfit, tries to make nice with Bethenny. Everyone squabbles and acts juvenile through entire show. Fin.
As an objective watcher, viewing this show is almost uncomfortable-I feel embarrassed for these women and Kelly clearly needs help. Stat.
Ramona weighs in on last night’s episode and the mental health of who I internally refer to as The Tall Psycho One. She says: “I was so relieved Kelly had left St. John. I no longer wanted to be responsible for her as she was having serious issues and it was scary (much scarier than you could ever imagine!)”
“I had called Jill the evening before to ask her to please meet Kelly at the airport. I was so concerned for her and wanted someone to meet her and make sure she was OK. Jill had conveyed to me that Kelly was sending her strange texts and wasn’t making any sense.”
I know when a friend of mine is clearly suffering a psychotic break, the first thing I do is call Jill Zarin (no), but maybe Ramona (or whomever) should have called a medical professional? Just saying. “Scarier than you could imagine,” sounds serious, right?
When Jill shows up on vacay, Ramona recounts that : “I was speechless. I took one look at Alex and saw her trembling and shaking. Knowing that Bethenny’s father just died and that her pregnancy was in a fragile state and couldn’t take stress, I made my decision. I had my guests to consider and I needed them to be comfortable.”
Ramona then switches gears to talk about how nice the last night was and other non-Kelly-Bensimon-is-a-total-nut-job things.
Why, why, why (!!!) if Kelly is really that crazy do these women not do something about it? This woman has kids at home! The producers are clearly going to let it slide because it makes for great TV. Just look at the plastic creature who used to be Heidi Montag to see what can happen when things spiral out of control. We’re watching a train wreck. Where is responsibility?
Shouldn’t everyone live by the New York City MTA’s motto “If you see something, say something?” These women live in Manhattan, they should know this. Or, do I just need to take more cabs?
