Ramona has decided that the time and place to tell her other friends about her engagement is at a party thrown by her friend Alisa Marie, a fur coat designer who’s invited everyone to try on her latest collection. The party is festive and fun, but any time Karen and Ramona interact, they’re like children, taking jabs at each other. They’re wearing their grudges on their fur-lined sleeves. “Let’s not argue here with all these people,” Karen says.

At the party, Renee‘s talking about staying with a man in prison and how hard it is, which is a little too on the nose. “What are the chances of Renee talking about this? It’s like she has a sixth sense,” Karen says. But Ramona wonders if it’s more than that and Karen actually told Ramona her engagement news.

Do you want this life for your kids? ‘Cause I don’t want it for you,” Karen says. And finally Ang speaks up in agreement with Karen.
“Karen really ruined this for me. She became like the Grim Reaper of friggin’ engagements,” Ramona says. Ultimately, it’s Renee that convinces Karen to come around, saying that if Ramona really feels it in her heart, she needs to go for it. But if it doesn’t work out…
