What. An. Episode. I should've made a drinking game solely with the word vagina. I would probably be drinking myself to death in the first fifteen minutos. I will say I am #teamBethenny all the way. I wanted to cry right with you. I'll be your family any day girlfriend. It broke my heart to see her breakdown about her will and feeling lonely. I'll be your family! It breaks my heart to see things like this. Let's dive into the episode.
I want to say first that I am IN LOVE with Jules' outfit in this scene. I also love that the first 15 minutes in the pizza place were vagina problems, including visual demonstrations. You don't hear 'vagina' that often in television. They made up for that. Also, I wish I had a doughnut pillow everywhere I went. That would make it so much more comfortable. As far as Bethenny's comment about "could you imagine if you were there". My husband and I took it as "you have a vagina problem as well. Two vagina health problems isn't going to make for a good appointment". I'm sure Bethenny just wanted to make the appointment about her and get to the bottom of it. Jules is distracted. She has her marital problems, eating problems, her own vagina problems. She has a lot going on. I don't think she should have taken it as personal as she did.
A lot of people are jumping on Jules for her eating. The thing that people don't understand about an eating disorder is that you struggle for a very long time with it, even after you have begun eating. It's a constant thought. You struggle your entire life. It's an obsession. Jule's is right. You don't want to look at the scale. It's it's own version of OCD and even worse if you accompany that with Body Dismorphia. It's a very hard concept for people to understand. A lot of people think that it's an easy fix and just flip the switch and "I'm okay and I love myself now". No. It's very hard to overcome something like that. It's also a struggle when you feel like eating is the only control you have in your life. When you feel like you're losing your grip on everything around you, eating it the only thing you really have control over. You feel proud of your self control and will power. It's a sickness. I think that her putting the silverware in the calzone was her way of not being able to eat. It made me cringe watching her eat Carole's pizza. You could tell that she's struggling and it broke my heart because I've been there. It really made me reminisce about my past struggles. I feel like it's such a struggle and hard thing for people to understand and I don't think it's going to help having people on her case about it. I think people just need to support her and be there for her.
I think Jules just needs to ditch Michael and find her happiness. When I found out that it took him SIX hours to get to the hospital. Marriage/divorce problems or not. That is the mother of your children! Shame on you! You should be there for her and helping her with whatever she needs. It's not that hard to bathe the kids and help them get ready for bed. You shower every day, correct? You know the process for a bath. I'm sure you could figure out how to shampoo and brush teeth. Your wife just had surgery and was just in the hospital. That's just disgraceful.
Seeing the seen with Bethenny discussing her conversation with her doctor broke my heart. Not having her parents or family and now she has to figure out her will and contemplating her daughters future if something happens to her. The fact that her worst nightmare is her daughter living with her ex (golddigging) husband's family full time was heart breaking. I'm glad this isn't real time and we can see now that she was okay from the surgery. I can't imagine having to sign off on the paper that they can take my uterus or that she might not wake up from the surgery and leaving her daughter without her mother. I couldn't imagine the anxiety and fear she must have been feeling.
LuAnne is giving no fucks this season and I live for her comments. She is the kinda of girl that goes after what she wants and doesn't care what any one else thinks. Also, is Tom the New York Slade? Sleeping with all the housewives. I can't believe so many of the housewives are like Oh. I slept with Tom too. We've been friends with benefits for 10 years. We went on "seven" dates. Everyone is obsessed and jumping on the Tom train for telling their Tom stories. I'm curious if everyone's going to the trip LuAnn is planning. Someone needs to handle Ramona a prescription pad. She has been the mediator/therapist this season. I love that she started it saying "I thought these girls would be on the outs.. BUT it's you"
I can't wait for the girls trip to see what happens and who goes!
