Why wait for Halloween to dress up?
Returning guest cast member Heather Thomson looks up cheerleading routines for beginners online, while Leah McSweeney is surrounded by makeup artists for the perfect prom queen-themed Carrie costume. The Housewives also prepare to show off their talents during a makeshift pageant. Leah even practices hula hooping while in costume with a fake slit throat!
Yet it's Eboni K. Williams who seems to have the competition in the bag. "I'm like gagging over myself," she laughs while her eyeshadow is applied. "Listen, I'm a pageant girl so first of all, this whole weekend is an extended pageant. I live for it. I'm here for all the costume parties."
Eboni previously credited her experience placing in the top five for the 2009 Miss N.C. USA pageant as inspiring her broadcast journalism career.
"It was rush unlike anything I'd felt before," Eboni captioned a throwback pic on Instagram. "I'm often asked how I transitioned from law to television...this moment was a huge catalyst in my transition."
As for besties Sonja Morgan and hostess Ramona's pageant looks? Ramona lifts weights while in a champagne-colored gown as Sonja perfects her French mime persona.
"I'm just going to YouTube what mimes do," Sonja announces.
Watch the LOL-worthy clip above and get ready to see who wins the pageant tomorrow night!
