When we last left the Game Of Crowns women, we were smack in the middle of the Legends of the Crown Pageant. Lori-Anne Marchese and Shelley Carbone have both been called as top-five finalists, along with two other women we don’t care about. That leaves Vanassa Sebastian, Lynne Diamante and Susanna Paliotta all vying for that remaining spot. Who will make the top five and who will be eliminated? Who will go on to be crowned the Legend of the Crown? Is anyone even still watching this show? Let’s find out what happened in the Game Of Crowns season finale.

I Think Somebody Would Like To Be My Friend

We pick up right where we left off. Lori-Anne…Shelley…those other ladies…and…Vanassa! Susanna and Lynne are eliminated. Susanna, of course, blames favoritism. “Well, we are at Foxwoods,” she says, will a roll of her eyes. Lynne thinks this was a win for her, just getting up and competing while dealing with all the controversy surrounding her. The two women stand on the sidelines, shooting daggers of hate from their eyes as the finalists answer the last interview question. Oh, and it’s a big one. The host asks Vanassa, “Do you consider yourself someone with whom people would want to be friends with?” I don’t know. Do you consider yourself someone with whom a grammar teacher would have trouble with? Ugh. Vanassa does alright, but she sounds really phony. Shelley does better and sounds genuine. Lori-Anne is…not a good speaker.

Then I guess the pageant is over? I don’t know. But they’re announcing the winner! Fourth runner up is…some lady! Third runner up is…the other lady! Second runner up is Lori-Anne. It’s between Shelley and Vanassa. And…it’s Shelley! Vanassa gets first runner up and Shelley wins the big crown. Vanassa is very nice about it, which makes me think that she actually does genuinely like Shelley. Lori-Anne is bummed to get third place, but she’s happy that she was herself and not what someone else told her to be. Shelley is just happy to get home to her family.

No Human Being Should Have To Go Through What I’ve Gone Through

The Legends of the Crown competition might be over, but there’s still a score to be settled between Lynne and Leha Guilmette. They’re headed to court so that a judge can rule whether or not the restraining order against Lynne will be permanent. We don’t get to see any of the actual court proceedings, but the end result goes in Lynne’s favor. The judge didn’t feel that Leha had the proper physical evidence to prove that she was in fear for her safety and so he threw out the restraining order. I have to say that Lynne is made almost entirely of garbage, but I don’t actually think a restraining order was necessary. Can’t you just like, avoid her? She’s not coming at you with a shotgun or peeking in your windows. Sheesh. Lynne – who is an actual attorney, if you can believe it – celebrates with her husband while Leha cries on Nick’s shoulder.

I Don’t Know Where These Allegations Are Coming From

In the great words of Mrs. America 2011: Not for nothing, but this finale is kind of boring. Susanna and Lori-Anne talk to some teens about bullying. Vanassa looks at boobs. Lori-Anne and her husband talk about having a baby for the zillionth time. Blah. Boooring. Finally, something interesting happens – Leha decides that all six women need to get together over dinner and “settle the score.” There are some things she needs to “get off her chest” because Bravo probably said she is “contractually obligated to have a final face-to-face with Lynne” or something. So, she calls up her pageant sisters – and her pageant enemies – and gathers them all together. At first, it’s not very exciting. Leha is angry about the private investigator and Lynne denies ever hiring one. Then Shelley drops this bombshell: “Didn’t you have a stalker?”

Turns out, Leha had a stalker and this might just be part of that whole thing? I don’t know. It’s kind of unclear and then they change the subject again, so I can’t really say one way or the other. The issue still remains, though, that Nick’s reputation has been dragged through the mud because of his alleged death threat against Lynne. Everyone agrees, again, that they did not hear Nick make a death threat. The only thing anyone heard was the threat against Susanna’s husband, which was actually from Nick’s dad. So…did it happen? “I heard what I heard,” is all Lynne will say. Sounds like bullsh*t to me.

But you know what else is bullsh*t? As they’re all sitting there fighting, I come to realize…hey, wait a minute. It was Susanna who said – in the hotel after Mrs. America – that Nick probably beat Leha. It was also Susanna who told Leha that Lynne was spreading rumors about him being abusive. Is this all freaking Susanna’s fault? Maybe. Maybe not. Shelley chimes in as the voice of reason, saying that trying to pin this all on one person isn’t going to work. The truth of the matter is, after the fighting at Mrs. America, each of the women were fearful of Nick and fearful for Leha’s safety. If she says that he’s not abusive, they will believe her, but at the time he scared the bejeesus out of them. Also, Vanassa is wearing an outfit straight out of the Kim Kardashian Hollywood game.

And I don’t know if it’s those 40-K Star Point beauties dangling from her ears or what, but somewhere between appetizers and the main course, these ladies find peace. Maybe they won’t always be friends, but they’ll be polite and cordial. After all – as Vanassa says – they’re all bound by the crown, right?

  1. Some of Lynne’s bios say she went to law school at the University of Mass. at Dartmouth. She did not. She went to an unaccredited law school called Southern New England School of Law, which was later purchased by U. Mass. The site that lists attorneys admitted to the Mass bar does not include her. She mentions on this episode that she was so embarrassed to be in the courthouse as a party to this action and that she was sure other attorneys just assumed she was there representing someone. I’m not sure why she thinks anyone would assume this,as she’s never even alleged she’s licensed to practice in Rhode Island. Also, to see the true colors of Susanna, Google her with “Toddlers & Tiaras” where she was pageant mom to a very ill-mannered child.
