The Show:

JOVANI! is drama. JOVANI! is sex. JOVANI! is the name of the fashion designer that intoxicated Real Housewife Dorinda Medley screamed at Countess Luann during her post-rehab cabaret show, in an effort to remind her that she was the one who hooked her up with free dresses. Yep. That pretty much sums up this pop culture obsessed sketch duo.
