Ladies of London: 5 Dramatic fights bound to go down this season
If there's been an extra pep in your step lately, there's a reason for that — and, no, it's not the crisp fall air. It's because Ladies of London is back, and OMG it's so, so good.
When Ladies of London — which, let's be honest, really is just The Real Housewives of London — was off the air for a year, I was fairly convinced it wasn't going to return. And, for the life of me, I couldn't figure out why. I mean, not only is it one of the greatest programs Bravo has ever put together, The Real Housewives of Miami has been on the air for a few years. And if that snooze-fest can make it, why not L of L?
My fears were thankfully quelled when we began seeing promos for the show, and when it aired last Monday, wow. Did not disappoint.
I don't want to call myself a Ladies of London expert, buuuut, given my affinity and loyalty to the show, I do feel like I'm in a position to make predictions about the upcoming season — arguments that may happen, alliances that will form, etc. So, that's just what I'm going to do.
Here are five things that will likely happen on Ladies of London this season.
1. Caroline Stanbury and Juliet Angus will have a falling out... but then become friends again
If you're a die-hard Ladies fan, you're familiar with the promo for this season. In it, at the end, we see Stanbury in some sort of furry animal costume, pretending to hump some dude, who's lying down on a couch. Afterward, Angus approaches Stanbury and says, "Did you just straddle my husband?!" And Stanbury — amazingly — says, "Yes. And he loved it." Oh, snap!
However! If you peruse Angus' Instagram, which I have, you'll see there's a photo of her and Stanbury from a few weeks ago (above). So, clearly, these two have made up, and everything is back to being hunky-dory. How long this took, though, we don't know yet.
2. Marissa Hermer and Juliet Angus will have a falling out... and won't become friends again
If you saw the first episode of Ladies of London, you know things aren't great in the world of Hermer and Angus. The two ladies had competing ideas about Thanksgiving dinner, and, well, everything went downhill from there. I was hoping the women would make up and be good friends again, but, again, after doing some Instagram stalking, it doesn't look like that's going to be the case.
About three weeks or so ago, Angus was in Los Angeles for a bit, and there isn't one single photo with Hermer, who spent the majority of the summer in Southern California. Also, look at the awkward body language between the two women in the above photo!
3. The ladies will turn against Caroline Stanbury at the reunion
Whenever there's one woman who's the "most popular" among fans, or wittiest, they always wind up getting eaten alive at the reunions. Think Lisa Vanderpump a few seasons ago.
4. The ladies will turn against Juliet Angus... during the show
In addition to seeing that Angus and Stanbury get into it, I think it's safe to assume that most of the ladies are going to turn on Angus at some point this season. She's already had a falling out with Hermer, and, as we all know from last season, Annabelle Neilson isn't her biggest fan. Who's next? In one of the preview clips, Angus is seen trying to cozy up to newcomer — and Danish royalty — Caroline Fleming. My guess? It's not going to sit well with the girls, as it seems a little — as Stanbury would put it — like a "social climber" move.
5. Julie Montagu — aka Lady Hinchingbrooke — and Caroline Fleming are going to go at it
In the trailer for this season, someone upsets Montagu very much — to the point of tears. Not cool! The preview doesn't show who's responsible for hurting Montagu, but my guess would be Fleming. Not sure who else would have the balls to insult a Lady. I definitely could be wrong, but whoever it is, I'm officially not a fan of. Who could not like Julie Montagu?!
