The next day, Lisa and Harry presented Garcelle with a jar of the wonderful sauce.


During the RHOBH season 11 reunion, Lisa raised a point of contention with Garcelle regarding the sauce. Although he personally dropped off the pot of bolognese at Garcelle’s, the love me as i am the author did not send a thank you note to Harry.

After “sauce-gate”, RHOBH fans hoped the issue would be settled once and for all. However, before RHOBH season 12, Harry’s bolognese sauce returned.
