Last night our ladies of the Empire State were finally back where they belonged – in Manhattan! Despite the calming days in Montana, a key Real Housewives of New York friendship is seeming to detonate!
Much like Survivor, these ladies are stranded on an island and forced into alliances. But Sonja Morgan is switching up the game. While interviewing a new intern in her backyard (which we so do not care about in the least), she’s wearing a fabulous military-inspired dress and preparing for friendship warfare. Into the garden wanders Aviva Drescher. Long time no see – and not missed!
Sonja immediately lobs a grenade – the entire trip all the girls were talking about Aviva (They were?) – but worst of all was Ramona Singer who accused Aviva of lying about asthma because she is afraid to travel without Reid.
Sonja Morgan wants everyone to know that the former Mrs. Morgan is still rolling in the dough, despite also rolling in the deep – deep debt that is!
She also accuses her Real Housewives of New York co-stars of “exploiting” her financial woes for a storyline and making things appear far graver than they are.
Are we sure about that? Because Sonja’s situation appears pretty grim based on reports – she owes $7 million dollars in a movie deal gone bust and her creditors accused her of hiding assets and stalling last year. And this year her St. Tropez home was sold by bankruptcy trustees after Sonja was dragging her feet in liquidating it herself. Still Sonja maintains that her finances are fine – just undergoing a bit of rearranging!
“Broke as a joke?! I am in a Chapter 11 reorganization, I am not in a Chapter 7 which is a liquidation,” Sonja insists. “To say I am broke while I am working and my daughter [Quincy, 13] is thriving under such immense pressure is unfair.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is scheduled to receive his sentence after pleading guilty to several counts of financial fraud – and apparently that’s not the only bad news! A property Apollo purchased in Atlanta sold in a foreclosure auction.
If you’re going Huh? – you’re not alone! It seems like Apollo owned a mystery property – once which we did not live in with Phaedra Parks and their two sons.
Kathy Wakile is experiencing one of the serious side effects of reality TV – everyone feels they have license to comment on your life!
I have to feel some sympathy for the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey because they seem to get the negative comments more than any other Housewives bunch. Apparently Kathy has had enough and announced on Facebook she is taking a break.
After Shannon holds up dinner for hours and hours with a crying whining meltdown on the beach (I hope she didn't get sand in her eyes), over her marital discord, she and David agree to try and get along on the trip if David would agree to switch to organic tequila. Of course, in secret, David called the authorities and started the process for a 5150 psychiatric hold for Shannon. Then he chugged his tequila - and suddenly all Brooks Ayers' words of Hallmark wisdom (seriously how many Lifetime Movies does this guy watch?!) made sense. Brooks toasted to forgetting the past because we know he wants errrryone to forget his and they all headed to Andeles, Vicki's Mecca.
This is one reality TV couple that isn't breaking up anytime soon – despite some pesky infidelity rumors.
Caroline Manzo just celebrated her 30th anniversary with husband Al Manzo. Caroline posted a montage of their years together on Facebook, which included a fabulously 80's flashback wedding photo. Caroline was gorgeous!
"Happy 30th Anniversary Al, If U live 2 B 100, I want 2 B 100 minus 1 day so I never have 2 live without U," Carolinewrote.
This season Heather Dubrow has been facing backlash from fans over her behavior – she's also been caught in the crossfire over some bitchy and gossipy behavior. It all seems to center around her angst with new castmate Shannon Beador.
"Look, I’m not perfect. I say incredibly stupid, regrettable things," Heather admits. "We all do. But in general, I’ve been the same person since the day they met me, and this is who I am. I think at some point you take someone for who they are or you move on."
Referring to her Real Housewives of Orange County castmates, Heather explains, "I think they are very laid back, and I think I’m a little uptight for them sometimes. The thing is, I don’t judge them for who they are or what they do. Sometimes I feel like I’m held to a different standard."
