Every housewife loves a good shopping spree in this next part of town -Soho! You’ll see some of the ladies favorite places to gossip, cry and shop such as: the tasty macaron mecca Lauduree, the vintage shop that Carole takes Aviva to called What Goes Around Comes Around, IL Mulino the Italian restaurant that the women frequent often, and CB2 home decorating store where Bethenny had to use a napkin from the store to wipe her tears away. Just to name a few!
You’ll then have a chance to celebrate Sonja paying off her $7 million judgments with a delicious cupcake from Georgetown Cupcake – the very place she took the girls to celebrate.
