Ain't no party like a 'House of DVF' party

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “What Happens In the Hamptons”| Aired Dec 7, 2014

Goodbye Abigail, goodbye Jinna, hello Hamptons. This week, House of DVF takes on the posh summer getaway destination, but even there they just can’t get their crap together.

Diane von Furstenberg is probably the most optimistic person in the world. Even after all the dumb stuff these girls have done to embarrass themselves, Diane still thinks she should send them to the Hamptons to help Jessica style socialites and celebrities at the Hamptons Classic.

Amanda leads the girls on a Hamptons adventure with House of DVF Jessica elects Amanda as the chairperson of the little group, and Amanda mobilizes the girls pretty quickly. On the ride to Diane’s Hamptons house, the girls get lost. This sets the whole weekend behind, and Jessica arrives at the fitting before they do. They are an hour behind schedule, and when Jessica calls, she’s terribly pissy. She wants them to arrive dressed in DVF, which forces them to pull to the side of the road to change, which, in turn, causes the clients to wait even longer.

When the girls finally arrive, they begin running around in circles like little cartoon stylists, and Jessica becomes more and more agitated. Once they get somewhat organized, Kier goes straight for the super model, Jessica White. Brittany can’t stand anyone else getting the spotlight, and mixes in. That leads to the unfortunate instance of Kier saying, “She needs to check herself before she wrecks herself,” and I feel sad that Kier thinks that is still a thing.

HereLenore takes this opportunity to transcend her Staten Island roots, even though Jessica is mercilessly teasing her. Jessica comes after Brittany pretty hard, as well, accusing her model of looking like a “quadruple divorcee that drinks chardonnay at 3 in the afternoon.” Brittany doesn’t take the teasing as well as Lenore, and complains that Jessica isn’t giving her enough credit. Brittany acts like she and the girls haven’t screwed up every assignment given thus far, and is just a little too smug for me to root for her anymore.

More and more VIPs trickle in to the house and Lenore begins to feel the pressure. The whole scene is a giant mess: the wracks are jumbled and untidy, two clients are wearing the same outfits, and Kier and Brittany leave clients to fend for themselves while they argue on the deck. Jessica spends the entire afternoon rubbing her forehead and wringing her hands, biding her time.

Later arrives and Jessica lines them up and gives them the business. Most of them are appropriately contrite, except Brittany, who scoffs at Jessica’s scolding. She acts far too snotty for her own good, and Jessica’s head explodes. The other girls love it because it distracts from their poor choices and puts Brittany directly on DVF’s radar.

Both executives discuss all the mistakes the House of DVF girls makeLater, at the Hamptons’ Classic, the girls’ clients arrive and both Jessica and Stefani are happy with the final result. The clients offer a little advice, and conveniently enough, it’s to “Stay nice.” Everyone in the circle is giving Brittany the side eye, almost as to say, “This is for you, kiddo.” Jessica White, the model, even pulls her aside to give her further advice about not being an asshole, but she didn’t really get the takeaway. She thinks Jessica White was relating to her, but really she was telling her to stop being a jerk.

The girls run along to have fun, but Jessica gets called into a private meeting with the other Jessica and Stefani. Brittany apologizes, but it’s not quite enough to smooth over the previous day’s incident. She cries and excuses herself, but winds up returning to take it like a lady.

Kier with her The girls return to the DVF Hampton house to get ready for their party. Brittany isn’t into it, but Amanda and Kier are raring to go. It starts out civilized enough, but it quickly turns unruly. Kier tries to accuse Amanda of returning to her frat party roots, but Amanda calls her out in her “Baywatch bathing suit with a handle of tequila.” Kier isn’t turning down shots, if you know what I mean.

With so many folks at the house, there is bound to be some social media evidence, and while folks are snapping pics for Instagram, one of the clients jumps in the pool with a DVF sample dress. This is, apparently, a huge, terrible deal, and the girls sober up pretty quickly when they realize what a terrible turn the party has taken.

Of course, the pictures make it back to DVF, and she is shocked and mortified. Jessica and Stefani see the pictures on social media as well and they are upset too. Once they all get together to compare notes about how awful the girls performed, DVF becomes more and more disdainful of the whole situation. She is fed up, and she wants the girls to answer for their actions.

The girls get their scolding of the week, only this time it

Even though we don’t get to see Brittany get her DVF swag bag, I think we can all assume she’s the next to go. Am I right? What do y’all think about the Hamptons’ party? Is Jessica overreacting?

House of DVF airs Sundays at 10 /9C on E!
