The Grape Stomp of Wrath


The 4th episode of the Real Housewives of DC aired last night, and boy oh boy, did it tell us a lot about the Salahis.

The episode titled The Grape Stomp of Wrath was a perfect foreshadow to what is to come later on this season. I was going to wait until next week to start doing the DC recaps but after watching last night’s episode, I say let’s get right to it!

The episode starts out with Lynda cooking a meal for her family. In the kitchen with her is her younger boytoy boyfriend Ebong Eka. Something about this union just robs me the wrong way. I can’t decide who’s using who. Ebong’s 35 and Lynda’s 52. Lynda also mentioned in a previous episode that she has no desire to get married again or have any more children. At 35, does Ebong have any kids? If not, does he not want any? Has he ever been married? If not, does he not plan on ever marrying?

Is he with her for the money? Is she with him for the arm candy? It just seems like an interesting relationship. A little search on Ebong shows he was raised in Canada, born to Nigerian parents. He is also a Certified Public Accountant with a taste for designer fashion. Nothing out of the norm. Perhaps I’m just reading too much into things, and these are just two adults in a healthy happy genuine relationship. Only time will tell.

Next, we see Stacie having a get together with her sorority sisters. Stacie, who is adopted, explains she has found her birth mother, who just happens to be Caucasian. Stacie also reveals her birth father is of Nigerian nationality, and does not know of her existence. And this scene is a perfect example of why the DC franchise has a bit more substance than the others. Race, politics, and other “controversial” topics don’t seem to be off limit.

Stacie shares that her birth mom wants to keep her a secret and is not willing to tell her who her birth father is. As Stacie tells her story, we see her sorors, who all look very camera ready and aware that this might be on national television, occasionally chime in.

It’s the opening day for Celebrity Hair Stylist Ted Gibson’s DC salon. Mary is very proud of the monumental day, as she is tired of people referring to DC as the “Hollywood for ugly people.” And in case the Ted Gibson name rings a bell, it’s because Ted also happens to be the hair stylist for Kate Gosselin. Michaele makes her entrance and declares her love for Ted, who thanks her for sponsoring the event. Mary however makes in clear in her voice over interview that she is the one responsible for Ted’s big day, and Michaele is only responsible for providing the store bought wine. Something about Mary is giving me Jill Zarin. Will touch more on that later.

As she’s getting her hair washed, Mary chats it up with Ted, and looks for reassurance that she’s still his #1 favorite girl in the whole entire world. The event starts and the other housewives excluding Stacie are in attendance. Cat makes her mandatory rude comments, and we see Lynda chatting it up with Michaele following their not so nice words of exchange in a previous episode. Lynda makes it clear she doesn’t like to hold grudges. “I don’t hold bad energy, it’s just not worth it to me,” says Lynda, who prefers to get her attorneys involved in joking matters.

“It seems like Tareq and Michaele have used their wine as a bit of a bartering system to get into places and to get to know important people,” says Mary, who seems to have a pretty good read on the Salahis. I always find it interesting how certain couples just manage to find one another. You ever know a slimy person, who just happened to marry another equally slimy individual? The Salahis are a good example of this. They just seem made for one another.

CLICK HERE FOR THE REST OF THE RECAP! -

Bringing you a preview of tonight’s episode of the Real Housewives of DC.

In the 4th episode this season, titled ‘The Grape Stomp of Wrath,’ Lynda deals with the stress of moving from her Georgetown condo to a sprawling suburban mansion to accommodate her grown children, while Stacie opens up about her birth mother.

Cat raises suspicions that there may be more than meets the eye with Michaele and Tareq (you don’t say Cat). In an effort to patch things up with the rest of the ladies, Michaele reaches out and invites everyone out to her winery for an old fashion grape stomp.

The new episode airs tonight on Bravo at 9/8c.

Lynda Erkiletian

In other DC news, it seems Lynda Erkiletian, who allegedly decided to put her life, family and business on national television, cannot take a joke.

The NY Post reports the alleged 52-year-old DC Housewife, who most certainly looks like she can move her face as she pleases, has spent the last couple of weeks getting her lawyers on any media outlet that dares says anything negative about her DC modeling agency.

It all started when Lynda, a cougar or alleged cougar rather (no need for the cease and desist letters), tried to play up her political connections on the Bravo show by boasting, “We cater to ambassadors and dignitaries.” This statement of course led to many lols, jokes, and speculations about the exact kind of catering Lynda’s modeling agency provides.

The writers at Comedy Central, Gawker and independent blog DBKP joked that her agency provided escorts to the Washington elite.

Lynda, who might or might not be a famewhore for choosing to appear on a nationally televised reality show, decided to get her lawyers involved, who then sent out cease and desist letters to the mentioned media outlets, even getting one blogger to apologize 14 times.

Perhaps someone should tell Lynda that waging a war against the media is something one does not want to do, especially when that one chose to appear on a Bravo Housewives series, and likely has skeletons in their closet. Here’s to hoping there will be no foreclosures or bankruptcies in Lynda’s future, as something tells me the media will definitely have a field day writing about such things.

Lynda even took to her Bravo blog to clear up the jokes. “OK everyone, calm down, and shame on YOU!” she said. “Embassies host cultural and philanthropic events that often include an element of fashion, which is how we ‘cater to ambassadors and diplomats.’ “

Whew! Glad she cleared that one up, because I for one most certainly believed she was really providing escorts and then went on national television to acknowledge having an escort service. But thanks to the cease and desists letters, in addition to Lynda’s blog posting, I now believe different! And oh yeah, the lovely picture above of Lynda was taken during the premiere party for the show.
