Ramona chastises Mario for the comment so he decides to make a peace offering and leaves LuAnn a voicemail and an invitation. LuAnn isn't so sure about Mario's voicemail and leans on Jill for advice. Bethenny and Jason head out for a romantic dinner and Jason asks Bethenny to move in with him. It's Labor Day weekend and both Ramona and LuAnn decide to throw parties - the issue becomes which party will the ladies go to? Kelly arrives at LuAnn's with a secret to share with the other women.
