Last night on Real Housewives Of New York some Housewives celebrated moving forward while other Housewives trudged back through the treacherous waters of their murky pasts. Tru-Renewal vs. Tru-Regression, y’all!
It’s Ramona Singer‘s birthday – you may think that this is just a day where Ramona gets a cake and an extra glass of wine. But oh no – it’s a sacred celebration – a week-long festivus of Turtle Timing which culminates with a fatuous lunch of wine spritzers, steamed veggies, and timid licks of icing from the tip of a knife. The ladies of the UES trek to their mecca, bestowing gifts of wine and Gucci (or hoochie – which is what Sonja Morgan brought), to place at the feet of their goddess Turtlephenia: Ramona of The Pinot, who is bedecked in gold like a shimmering bottle of pinot.
Even though Bethenny Frankel basically told Sonja Morgan her life is a disastrous mess and she’s living in a delusional fantasy world, Bethenny insists the two are in a “good spot” and still friends.
“I think I was being supportive,” the Real Housewives Of New York star says,of her sit-down with Sonja in Atlantic City – which is the first of many! “It’s compassion,” Bethenny elaborated. “There’s a whole trajectory with Sonja and I this season,” said Bethenny.
As for the dramatic, heartbreaking episode, Bethenny feels it was a great example of RHONY at its finest.”I thought the show, overall, was really funny. People thought it was one of the best episodes,” she quipped. I kinda agree.
First of all when I am 50, I hope and pray I look as fabulous as Luann de Lesseps. Oh did I mention – Lu turned 50 and celebrated her birthday this past weekend with friends – and her ex-boyfriend Jacques Azoulay!
Despite the fact that Jacques threw the Real Housewives Of New York star’s “Fifty Shades Of Fabulous” birthday fete, Luann insists the two have remained friends and there is no rekindling of romances, but they certainly looked cozy in photos from Luann’s celebration!
Abby Lee Miller wants it known there is “absolutely” nothing Holly Frazier can do to restore her tepid standing on Dance Moms and she won’t be returning to the show. Interestingly, Holly seems to confirm she and Nia are done with ALDC, which is currently filming its 6th season. So does that mean a mid-season exit for Nia?
There was apparently drama at the recent Reality TV Awards where Abby stormed away from Holly on the red carpet after calling her “the worst.” Of course Holly had a more eloquent explanation for their issues. “It’s unfortunate. I think with any type of evolution with relationships there would be hope that there would be opportunities to repair it. As a person, I thought I gave an example of how we could and it’s unfortunate that she thinks we can’t.”
Reacting to the imposing proposition Emilia, blogged explaining her perspective and why she doesn’t think it’s the right choice for her and Ryan. Ryan, obviously because then his children could be biologically related to Fredrik’s! One big happy Bravo, family, y’all!
Calling it “unfair” that Emilia didn’t get to film a confessional on the show, Ryan turned his Bravo blog over to his love. “I have been getting so many questions about this ‘egg’ situation. Frantic calls from my family and friends in Athens and London. The occasional stare at my stomach as if in search of a bump (‘No guys that’s not what they mean by donate eggs.’) and some odd questioning of how I am feeling and if I need to eat or sleep. Ha,” begins Emilia.
First of all Andy says he “loved” that all the ladies decided together to wear white to the reunion. “It was not my decision but I loved it,” he declared.
What he does not love is learning that Kenya called him “Mandy” and an “ass” in a recent tweet. In Andy’s visibly shocked reaction he exclaims, “Did Kenya call me ‘Mandy’ on Twitter?!?!” Yes, she did. “Well… on the one hand it’s offensive, but on the other hand it is ‘MAN-dy.’”
Alexia Echevarria is the latest Real Housewife to suffer the divorce curse! Alexia has reportedly separated from her husband of 15 years, Herman Echevarria because they’ve had serious issues for the last couple of years!
The former Real Housewives Of Miami star has gushed about Herman being a beacon of support for her and her two sons from a previous marriage, Peter and Frankie. Herman raised them after Alexia’s ex-husband went to prison. Alexia and Herman also founded and run the popular Venue Magazine, but according to sources their relationship has been rocky for years and they have been living apart for months as they decide whether or not to go through with divorce.
