I find myself wondering what happened to Juliet Angus as a child. Was she a middle child like “Jan Brady” feeling invisible and never noticed next to her glamorous older sister Marcia? Or perhaps an only child constantly getting approval, and all of her parent’s attention? Something is very wrong with the amount of adoration Angus needs to feel right in the world. She has no care if the focus is complimentary, or shit-stirring drama, so long as she’s directly in the middle. And so it goes again in tonight’s Ladies of London. Juliet has an unhealthy fascination for Brit “It-Girl” Caroline Stanbury and will do anything to remain her confidant. Caroline is amused by Juliet’s attentions and enjoys being around her, until Angus gets on her soapbox and explodes over small issues. The clip below is from Sophie Stanbury’s birthday party where Angus flips out on Julie Montagu……
Juliet visits Caroline Stanbury at her Gift Library offices, letting the Brit know she told several of the ladies about a private conversation between herself and Caroline. It involved a snarky comment by Caroline, not worth repeating, but Juliet couldn’t resist gossiping to Julie, who then told Annabelle. Now its blown up in Juliet’s face (as usual) and Caroline is less than amused. Juliet seems to be forgetting that Caroline’s business is in serious trouble, and she’s under extreme pressure. Caroline warns Juliet to fix her mess before they all attend Sophie Stanbury’s birthday celebration, because her drama threshold is at its peak. Juliet has no care for Caroline’s troubles, she’s only concerned about squashing rumors and not the wreckage left behind. Caroline realizes Juliet is incredibly selfish focusing only on the effects her gossiping has caused herself!
Julie’s Unbelievable Balls, or JUB for short, have taken off and are selling extremely well. Using lots of the tips Caroline Stanbury offered, she set up a meeting with potential investors. Julie had a great sales pitch nailing all of her points! Montagu’s ace in the hole was having the men taste the JUB product. They loved JUB and decided to financially back Julie’s business! Way to go Julie! Cheers to your delicious balls and future success. Mapperton and your family will benefit from your dedication.
Sophie Stanbury meets SIL Caroline for coffee to catch up and discuss recent events. They re-hash the Julie/Juliet nonsense of #YogaGate and #Humpgate both incredulous at the American’s behavior. Caroline is ready to cut ties with people who can’t stop causing strife in the group. Who can blame her? Its ridiculous! Caroline discusses Gift Library, opening up to Sophie and is visibly upset. Her loan comes due in January and she’s nervous that her investors could easily close her down. She’s so strong that people around her, except Sophie and Luke Henderson, don’t realize how deeply she’s upset by the business fiasco.
Marissa Hermer discusses branding and a marketing strategy for her new restaurant “Top Dog” and is spinning with all of the details! This is her baby, a 4,800 sq ft baby, that will need to sell a lot of gourmet hot-dogs to pay the bills. Great thing about Marissa is her ability to shine under pressure.
Sophie Stanbury’s party had a Mexican themed menu which I see a lot in California, but is far more exotic in London! Her guest list included Caroline’s sister Victoria Stanbury and SIL Reema (Husband Cem’s sister) Julie Montagu decided a peace-offering was in order with Caroline Stanbury and brought her a gift. Julie is a lover, not a fighter, and lost her “Take on Caroline” resolve in the limo ride with Annabelle Neilson. Annabelle is not sure what is going on at this point, but supports “Jules” none the less. Caroline Stanbury just wants to drink and enjoy her night, accepting the gift with grace and no drama. Caroline bought Sophie a Pinata filled with sex toys, which Marissa puts to excellent by use applying nipple clamps to shut Juliet’s lips. Unfortunately they came off. Angus wasted no time in attacking Julie Montagu, screaming at her in the middle of the party. At this point nobody knows or cares what has spun Juliet out, but Julie is in tears, and Angus looks like a rabid dog ready to eat her. Somebody needs to put the ball-gag that fell out of the Pinata into Juliet Angus’s mouth, and buckle it tightly. Does she have to ruin EVERY party? I guess any attention for Juliet is better than no attention at all.
Caroline Stanbury clearly frustrated with the drama took to her Bravo blog to explain.
Bravotv.com: What were you thinking when Juliet told you she told Julie about your “wipe the floor with you” exchange?
Caroline Stanbury: I was exasperated, it was a flippant comment. I had simply had enough. New Year’s was at least a week before, and I was done with this topic. ButJuliet being Juliet just wouldn’t let it go. I was going through the biggest crisis at work that I have ever had to go through, and I just didn’t have the head space to discuss these things anymore. I wanted her to stop calling me. She had already blown things up with Jules; it was just typical.
Bravotv.com: Tell us about seeing Julie succeed with JUB and watching her thinking of you to motivate her and give her confidence.
CS: I was happy for Julie, she deserves it. Small brands only succeed when the owner is passionate. Julie truly deserves it. It was nice to be of any help at all and nice for her to say I mentored her. All I had done was give her a push, she has done everything on her own.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of Julie’s “kale” olive branch and her saying she’d rather have you as a friend than an enemy?
CS: I was confused a little bit. Again because it has been such a giant topic for her, she has spent so long apologizing for it, and has come with a gift in the other hand. I’m just going to take it, say thank you, and move on. It’s easier to be friends than to fight again. I just want to let go of all the drama to be honest.
Bravotv.com: What is your take about Julie and Juliet clashing at the party? Especially considering your name was brought up so much in their confrontation.
CS: I made it very clear I wanted no confrontation and it’s between the two of them. They’re both annoyed at each other for dropping each other in it, and I’m not really listening to be honest. It’s between them.
Bravotv.com: We noticed the piñata was a unicorn — any reason for that considering your onesie?
CS: No reason at all. You try finding a piñata and let me know how many you find.
