Please tell me the finale is not about Tom! It’s about Tom. And what a bittersweet ending The Real Housewives Of New York is giving us this season. Not even twenty-four hours after the ladies’ awesomely insane Mexico trip aired, Luann de Lesseps (yes, we’re back to the old name) announced she’d filed for divorce from Tom D’Agostino, who she’s spent the last eighteen episodes defending as the man who would make all of her dreams come true. In the end, poor Luann traded Countess for Wife, and all she had to show for it was Eggs a la Francaise on her face. But I’m here for single Lu ALL day, EVERY day. So perhaps, eighty-sixing Tom right smack on the heels of Luann totally rocking that Mexico vaycay is perfect timing after all. And given Tom’s (unsurprising) shady behavior last night, Luann’s move to kick his sorry, lying, cheating, de-mic’d a$$ to the curb deserves an extra champagne toast. Hurrah!!!
Can you believe we are already at the season finale of The Real Housewives of New York City? Newcomer Tinsley Mortimer has had an interesting first season and is reflecting on last week’s shenanigans in her latest blog. This isn’t the first time Tinsley admits to being embarrassed by her behavior on the show. And if she returns next season, it likely won’t be the last time she’ll be embarrassed by it.
Tinsley starts off by explaining that she has been very appreciative of Sonja Morgan‘s hospitality but didn’t expect her to talk shit about her to the other ladies. “Because I was moving out of Sonja’s townhouse to a hotel suite, I really wanted to host a great Thank You party for Sonja. Without question, she had been very generous to invite me to stay at her house during a very difficult period for me. I was so appreciative of this offer and still am, because she really changed my life. I did not, however, expect her to feel the liberty to speak poorly of me to others.”
The drama began after their FOUR-YEAR divorce finally wrapped up. Bethenny reported that Jason was consistently sending her a barrage of nasty texts, FaceTime calls and emails. After Jason publicly confronted her, the Real Housewives Of New York star called the police and had him arrested for stalking and harassment. Further charges followed when he still didn’t stop.
Yesterday Jason was back in court where he decided against accepting a proposed plea deal. Remember when we thought Jason was the normal one? Now it’s more of a case two wrongs don’t make a skinnygirl right!
John and Dorinda took to Instagram to share pictures of their trip, where they swam with pigs on Exumas Island and stayed at the One and Only Beach Club. John posted the picture above, adding, “Enjoying some time off.” See their pics below.
Luann shared in her latest Bravo blog that she’s been enjoying the wild Mexico ride as much as we are. “Our trip to Mexico had it all: falling down, making out, and making up!” She says they were beyond tipsy and pretty much drank their day away together. “We had a glass in our hands ALL day! It’s not surprising that things got a little crazy after we got back to the villa.”
Despite their misgivings about Tom – and in some cases, their personal dating histories with him – Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley reached out on social media and news outlets to offer empathy and support. Their statements, much like their TV personalities, varied widely.
