Put seven Housewives in a room, ask a heated question about etiquette and you’ll get 37 different opinions – plus raised voices, pointed fingers and general exasperation.
With The Real Housewives of New York City wrapping up a lively season this Thursday, the ladies – Jill, Kelly, Alex, Sonja, Ramona, LuAnn and Cindy – reunited to rehash all their personal drama in a two-part reunion special, and PEOPLE.com has an exclusive first look at the action.
With blondes and brunettes separated on different couches, the ladies begin to address Cindy’s possible etiquette breach – taking a business phone call during a breakfast at Sonja’s home. As Cindy explains herself – even rising from the couch for extra emphasis – Kelly defends her castmate, telling Sonja, “She’s a working woman with two kids. … If I came to your house and I had a call, I would take it. Sorry.”
“I was cooking for her,” retorts an exasperated Sonja, who has Alex and Ramona – and even LuAnn – on her side.
Immediately, though, the discussion turns into a free for all as all seven ladies join the fray, talking over each other and loudly arguing about who was right: Sonja or Cindy.
“Once again, Sonja, I don’t hang around here to have you teach me,” says Cindy. “The last person I would ever have etiquette [lessons] from is you with your butt hanging out [and] your boob hanging out.”
Leave it to Kelly to (attempt to) get the final word. “I gotta be the peacemaker,” she says.
Says host Andy Cohen: “You’re not.”
