Just a quick warning – I’m not normally a mean-spirited person. But I feel that if a person offers herself or himself up on television for something as talentless as being rich, I get to make fun of that person. So if you feel any loyalty to one or more of the cast members on this show, you may want to skip these posts. I don’t want you to think I’m a bad person.
Things were actually pretty mild on the show. More shopping and champagne drinking. But of course, there were a few hilarious elements.
First, Val, who will be referred to from now on as “The Tranny,” decided to throw a “party” at her house in Angra dos Reis. (For those who don’t understand the reference, “tranny” is short for transvestite, which I’m certain she is. Come on, at some point a wealthy, powerful guy just gets tired of the same old female anatomy. Who wouldn’t want the best of both worlds??) The Tranny invites Deborah and Brunete, the old architect, to her “party.” I don’t know where Narcisa is at this point, probably sleeping off a major hangover or still at her party from last week in a cocaine or ecstasy dancing haze. She makes an appearance later cleaning out her closet.
Deborah and Brunete agree to go to Angra. That is, until Deborah tells her husband she’s going and he gets upset. He’s worried about three women partying it up in Angra. He’s obviously never met Deborah’s friends. So Deborah declines the invite in order to avoid a fight with him. Fast forward to The Tranny’s “party” and you’ll see the two women, The Tranny’s makeup artist and some other random guy dancing on The Tranny’s patio. Hardly the makings of a scandalous evening.
Lydia, the jewelry designer (??), has a friend over to admire her family’s antique dishes. Whatever. What’s funny is that Lydia’s table is set up for lunch with a lovely set of blue & white china, complete with silver and everything, and guess what lunch has been prepared for their guest. Guess. Ham sandwiches. Yep. Can’t buy class.
The final hilarious event was at the very end. They are having dinner, not sure where, but an old man shows up, displaying some crusty old chest hair, and sings “It Had to be You.” Now, I heard that The Tranny was involved with an 80-year-old man with which she had twins (I don’t believe the twins have been mentioned). Could this be him? There’s no mention on screen as to who he is, and I didn’t catch how The Tranny identified him. If anyone knows, please let me know.
