Here's what we learned this week on Ladies of London. If you're having a hard time juggling two friends, don't be wasted to the point of fake-accent-having hysteria. I'm looking at you, Noelle Reno. Girl, I get it, you want to suck all the experience and connection you can get out of Caprice Bourret, but you'd rather hang out with Caroline Stanbury. Fine, totally fine.

That seems like slapping a baby deer for no reason.
Do you think Noelle's pot-stirring was accidental?
