RHONY season 8

Andy Cohen popped in this week on Amy Phillips’ Reality Checked radio show. He dished for a few minutes on some things we can expect coming up for Real Housewives of New York, Dallas and New Jersey. Andy shared what made him cry this week, what we can expect from an insane RHONY secret, why Erika Jayne is hooked on a particular Housewives show and more!

Andy shared with Amy that next week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York is something we cannot miss. “The entire thing takes place over two and a half hours at Dorinda’s house in the Berkshires. It’s like a one act play, it’s like a drawing room comedy, with some blood. Like a couple murders, basically. You may need hours to dissect next week’s episode. Bethenny dismembers Luann, basically, within the first six minutes of the show in a way that I’ve never seen.” But he says with all the drama and insanity, it’s still funny as only RHONY can be in the midst of drama.

On Sonja Morgan being so excited about being mentioned on Page Six during this week’s episode of RHONY, Amy says that it was her showing her true colors and almost like the fourth wall being breached. Andy said it almost reminded him of Simon and Alex loving to be mentioned on the society page.

On Luann’s fiance, Tom D’Agastino, Andy says, “Just wait. Basically we plant some seeds for the Tom thing now. Ramona really gets in Luann’s face next week, saying ‘well you know I was dating him when you met him’ and she thinks Luann kind of swept in on this guy that she was dating. Of course then it comes out that Sonja has dated this guy and in a few weeks Luann breaks the news to them – in two of the funniest scenes I’ve ever seen – that she is in fact engaged. Sonja and Ramona both feel somehow proprietary about over him. And then the entire Luann thing takes such a massive right turn in a way that’s going to slap everyone in the face later on in the season.”

Andy then shares that one of the members of the cast actually reached out to the rest of the cast and said they should all agree to keep the spoilers for this particular revelation out of the media and they all agreed to not leaking it and so far it’s worked. He says it’s very dramatic.

Andy shares that when he shot the Alice Through the Looking Glass promo with Luann, Sonja, Erika Jayne, Phaedra, and Melissa, that Sonja and Luann were the entertainment. He says Erika’s mouth was on the floor watching the two of them bicker and banter about dating and sleeping with Luann’s fiance. (Sonja at one point quipped “yeah, we all f*** the same guys”). Andy says Erika is now hooked on watching the Real Housewives of New York and is so shocked how these ladies just move on and Beverly Hills ladies beat a conversation TO THE DEATH for 19 weeks and with New York everything happens so quickly. “Their connections are so real and legit that I think it’s blowing her mind and it’s the stuff we all love about her.” Amy mentions that maybe Erika is going to want to up her game next season now after watching the NY ladies. Andy replied with “I know!” (Which pretty much confirms she’ll be back, at least most likely, right?) 

On the Dallas reunion taping that happened yesterday, he says that it went well and feels like LeeAnne is channeling some old school Danielle Staub! “It was really good. I have to say, it reminds me of old Housewives, like old OC. The interesting thing is how their lives have all changed since the show wrapped. The show wrapped like a year ago or something. So, there were big developments from almost everybody. I enjoyed it. No blood and a lot of entertainment. LeeAnne kind of reminds me of Danielle from early New Jersey.”

Andy’s shocked to hear that Amy Phillips hadn’t yet watched the new trailer for Real Housewives of New Jersey. He says, “I have to say the first episode with Teresa’s homecoming I was in major tears. It’s very emotional. It’s a really good season. The one to watch is Jacqueline who kind of maybe loses her marbles a little bit, I think it’s fair to say.”
