This recap was written on Friday evening, I then decided not to post it because it was too late in the day. Then decided on Saturday I should just scrap it all together, then decided on Sunday that I should probably post it since it’s already been written, and now it’s Monday and what the hay! So below is the recap, hope you enjoy.
And just like that, we are midway through the third season of the Real Housewives of New York City. Last night’s episode was interesting but the best part Bethenny Frankel’s appearance on Bravo’s was Watch What Happens.
We started off last night’s episode with a little TMI involving Jill Zarin and her sick dog. Moving right along to Bethenny visiting Alex, and sharing her engagement news with her. Bethenny reveals Alex is the first person she’s telling, and plans on telling all the other housewives at a later date. It’s nice to see a genuine friendship developing between Alex and Bethenny, who would have thought? Who would have guessed? That’s the great thing about the housewives’ series, you never know what’s next to come.
Next up is a get together between the single women on the show, we get to see the Countess, Kelly and new housewife Samantha from Sex & the City Sonja Morgan meet up for drinks. Interestingly enough, all three of these women married much older rich men, and all three are still holding on to their last names. Sonja does what she does best, which is to blab about sex. Kelly attempts to downplay her past relationship with male gigolo Max, which is interesting considering she spent all of last season flaunting him around. I’m still on the fence about the addition of Sonja. Perhaps its because this season has been very interesting thus far, but I’m not really seeing what she adds. When you think about it, Bethenny, Ramona, Jill, Kelly, and even Alex are all one of a kind. I mean really, have you ever come across anyone like Ramona? The answer is likely no, but Sonja doesn’t seem to have that unique factor. Anyone who’s seen an episode of Sex & the City, knows this woman is a Samantha wannabe.
And how cute and funny was Kelly’s daughter when she decided not to talk to the cameras, but rather write down what was happening. Very cute scene.
The big event of the night came towards the end of the episode at Kelly’s event for Gotham magazine. For some reason, some of the ladies (Bethenny, Kelly and Alex) decided this was the night to sport their shortest attires. Bethenny’s one liner about what the ladies had on was priceless. “This was the party evidently that we were all told to wear a square of toilet paper and make an outfit out of it. I mean I literally, I didn’t have a top on, Kelly’s vagina was hanging out. Alex’s ass cheeks. Literally, it was like a yard sale of body parts,” said Bethenny. Seriously, it must be hard for one to hate Bethenny because love her or hate her, she will make you laugh!

The drama began when Jill decided to unnecessarily move to the other side of the room the minute Bethenny showed her face. This ofcourse made Bethenny sad, “ruining” her big night. And then for some reason, Jill decided to speak to Bethenny at the end of the night, congratulating her on her engagement. Bethenny however was a bit cold and could be seen saying she was over the friendship during her one on one interview.
We also had LuAnn confronting Mario in Italian, which was actually a cute scene to watch. Mario speaking Italian = very sexy. And as much as I dislike LuAnn, Mario should have apologized for his “Countless” comment. It was funny rude and inappropriate.
The episode ends and what’s to come next week looks to be way more interesting than what we just watched. Can’t wait to find out what goes down between Jill and Alex. Anyone know? Please feel free to share in the comments section because I’m really out of the loop on this one.
Watch What Happens - Bethenny’s appearance on the aftershow alongside Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Mondern Family was highly entertaining to say the least. For Bethenny standards, she seemed to take the high road when it came to discussing Jill. Host Andy Cohen also touched on the Jill Zarin book review scandal, to which Bethenny said it something she would never do.
