On tonight’s episode, titled “Steel Calzones,” which please don’t insult my Steel Magnolias by associating with Bethenny Frankel, cause no… Bethenny’s health scare gets scarier after some unsettling news from her doctor. Not only that, but when Bethenny is faced with creating a living will, she realizes how very alone she is. I’ll refrain from snarky comments here, and just move on to Carole Radziwill, who reconnects with her old friend Heather Thomson. So I guess with Bethenny out of commission she had time for ol’ H.T. Holla!
The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
Her life has really unwound and none of it was captured by the Bravo when they filmed the current season of the show. And this might be coming back to get Jules. Sure, she is making the news these days, but she really isn’t doing much on the show and now there are rumors that she might be getting the axe.
Who wants to know more about the life and times of Luann de Lesseps? If you answered “yes”, then Bravo has a treat for you – an hour long look into what happens before you join the largest reality TV franchise in history. Dust off your book of etiquette and brush up on your française, because it’s time to chat with The Countess of Real Housewives of New York.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the subject on everyone’s lips was blood and Luann de Lesseps. Does Luann have blood on her hands for ruining the group in her refusal to play the role of Bethenny Frankel‘s sycophant? Well, it appears none of that matters quite so much in the wake of Bethenny‘s health issue.
I don’t even think Luann made an appearance last night, but she was revived with her own ‘Before They Were Housewives’ special which aired after the show and my has she had quite a fascinating life.
Anyway, unfortunately, both Bethenny and Jules Wainstein spent their off-hours at Lenox Hill Hospital getting their vaginal areas investigated and mended. More on that later…
Andy starts off asking if Bethenny noticed thatLuann de Lesseps has her name misspelled in her phone? “Well, I don’t have to, I have Twitter for that. I didn’t notice but so many people did. It’s so funny the things people pick up on.” Was she surprised by that after all these years of being friends? “No. Maybe she had it like that originally, I don’t know. I don’t really think about things like that.”
I feel like no matter how “cool” Luann claims to be in regard to Tom getting with two other cast members, it is still weird. And I can’t imagine Sonja and Ramona thought it was cool either. Since Sonja got with Tom first, I wondered if Ramona followed suit to get revenge on her frienemy turned enemy, but apparently she had no idea about Sonja’s history with Tom.
