Well, someone found her voice this week on The Real Housewives of New York – even if it was only in her blog! Jules Wainstein unleashed her opinions about Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill in no uncertain terms. Jules’ writing is so sharp in fact, Carole even took to twitter to disparage Jules further and defend herself, re-tweeting one viewer’s pointed question, “I think Jules used a ghostwriter to write this weeks blog. What do u think?” Hmm. You be the judge!
Jules begins by wondering, “‘Why is there always yelling and screaming? Why is someone always storming out of the room in tears? Why is someone always being mocked, insulted, judged or left out? WHAT PLANET ARE WE ON?!’ And then it hit me like a meteor: We are on planet Bethenny. Unlike on planet Earth where friendships are formed and shaped through mutual support and encouragement, on planet Bethenny (which is circled 24/7 by a moon named Carole) it is acceptable for friends to disparage one another behind their backs, to judge, berate and abandon one another on an almost constant basis.” Uh-oh. Shots fired! SHOTS FIRED!
The radio show was aired the day before the RHONY reunion taping. Bethenny is sick, but joked that she can’t imagine what would happen if she called in sick to the reunion. Bethenny sniped “I mean Jules can call in sick because it’s not even like she’s going to be there, but I don’t think I can call in sick tomorrow.” They speculated that they’ll be seated next to each other, but we all know now that wasn’t the case.

Lu starts off with some observations, “While watching this episode, I noticed how when Jules or I open up about what’s going on with our lives, instead of becoming closer to the other ladies, they use it against us. I’m in love with Tom, and I’m happier than I’ve been in years, so why can’t the girls just be glad for me and be sympathetic to Jules’ eating disorder? Dorinda’s been stirring the pot, I think, to keep herself out of the spotlight, but eventually, what goes around comes around.”
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York left a big question mark over my head. Am I stupid is as stupid does? Because why exactly is Bethenny Frankel so angry atJules Wainstein? Actually, angry isn’t the world, “spooked” is. And what exactly did Bravo NOT show us that is so pertinent to what caused this explosion? Color me three shades of ‘Bethenny lost 10% of her blood’ pale.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are at war over getting onTom D’Agostino‘s jock (exactly how many millions is he packing?!). Tom happens to be the current fiancé of Luann de Lesseps, once dated Ramona Singer (two or three times, or seven – depending on who you ask), and possibly spent the last decade playing undercover friends with benefits with Sonja Morgan. Disgusted Confused yet? I’m surprised these so-called classy ladies are so comfortable with hippie-hippie notions of free love!
Luann De Lesseps‘ so called “friends” have had a lot to say about her fiance, Tom D’Agostino on The Real Housewives of New York lately. Tom, who Luann plans to wed on New Year’s Eve in Palm Beach, hasn’t had much of a chance to defend himself though. Now he’s speaking out to clarify the rumors that he 1) dated Ramona Singer seriously and 2) hooked up with Sonja Morgan over a period of 10 years. The answer to both rumors, according to Tom? Nope, and nope.
“I don’t watch the show, but I get different pieces here and there, and a lot of the stuff I have heard? It’s so outlandish to me,” says Tom. Not sure I’m buying his line of not watching the show, but Sonja and Ramona spewing forth outlandish commentary? Absolutely! Then again, Tom could just be covering up his sordid past with the ladies. No one wants to be dubbed another Slade Smiley!
After being accused of unprofessionalism and “diva behavior” by her hair extensions business partner, Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club,Ramona Singer is firing back. Sources confirm that Ramona was fired from Lux, however Ramona claims the issue all comes down to money – or lack thereof.
The Real Housewives of New York spitfire snarked, “If being a ‘diva’ is asking to be paid for work done, then everyone should be a diva.” This statement came after Flores accused Ramona of having a bad attitude at a recent promotional event for their hair extensions. After the event at Harmon’s beauty store, Flores emailed Ramona, “We were incredibly disappointed with your attitude at Harmon’s and our [return on investment] on you has been less than overwhelming.”
Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
