Kenya is attempting to give Ramona a second chance. They are asking her about John, the bar owner, telling her to go for it.

They start to talk about what they thought about each other prior to coming on the trip and how that has changed. Luann shares she has known Ramona for so long and she does take some getting used to. Ramona admits she Googled Kenya which can be dangerous because you get a preconceived notion of someone. Luanna tells a story about a man she was supposed to go on a date with who ended up Googling her but canceled when he saw she had been arrested. The topic of Tom and her divorce now comes up. Ramona excuses herself.

Teresa feels Ramona should stay, even if she heard the story a bunch of times. Luann admits she married her drinking buddy. Kenya understands what it is like to marry the bad guy.

Fun In The Water On The Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip

Leaving the Ramona drama behind, Kyle and Luann go into the water while the others take some selfies and photos. Kyle and Cynthia are talking about marriage as Kyle has been married for twenty-five years. Cynthia, on the other hand, is a newlywed.

Kyle claims Mauricio does not know how to use social media so he did not even know he had all these DMs from ladies. Therefore, she was getting mad for no reason. On the way back to the villa, Kyle realizes she posted a random photo of herself. She has so much regret and now has to remedy this. At the villa, Ramona is giving herself a talk to be nice and keep her mouth shut. Is that possible?

Time for the Bailey Q where they will wear red or get read. There are also the shady awards and such. It should be interesting with these women. Kyle does not feel good naming each other the prettiest and smartest, especially in 2020. However, nothing can start until Kenya arrives and she is busy getting ready with three glam people. She finally shows up and agrees with Kyle that this might be a little cruel even though she has played this game. Cynthia feels betrayed and angry because Kenya grabs food while they have all been waiting.

And The Award Goes To…

Kenya asks if they can play Taboo instead. It is Cynthia’s night so they will do as she wishes. Kenya believes this game can fly in Atlanta but maybe not with these women. Ramona is asked who has the best butt. She thinks they all do but concedes Teresa does. Teresa would sleep with Lu, marry Cynthia, and kill Ramona. Who is the most disrespectful according to Lu? Ramona. Kyle’s biggest insecurity? Her body.

All of their insecurities are on the table. Melissa is scared to be alone, Cynthia was scared of being alone as was Kenya, Ramona has a low body image, Lu is scared she will have to grow old with Ramona. Cynthia was a little hurt by Kyle for taking the game a little too seriously. They move past that and it is awards time. Ramona gives Melissa the sweetest award. Melissa gives Kenya the smartest award. The biggest boss is Lu, funniest is Kyle, best butt goes to Ramona, most fashionable is Cynthia, best smile is Teresa, and sexiest is Melissa.

Cynthia gives them the option to the pettiest but it goes by the wayside and she is mad. Finally, Ramona hands down shadiest to Kenya. In their confessionals, both Kenya and Cynthia are over each other. Cynthia truly believed she had an ally and is seeing she was wrong. She accepts the petty award for herself. Kenya shades Cynthia’s potato salad and the women dance outside before bed.
