At this point in the season, it’s clear that Carole and Bethenny aren’t as close as they used to be, but nothing has really happened yet. There has been some underlying tension in every episode, but it hasn’t truly come to a head. That hasn’t stopped Carole from the spoiling the fact that the former close friends are not on good terms these days. In contrast, Bethenny hasn’t said much about it in public, other than unfollowing Carole on Instagram. Does she not care? Is she just trying to keep the spoilers under wraps? Maybe she’s just too busy saving the world and running her empire. Nevertheless, I’m sure those zingers are coming.
It used to be the Berkshires where The Real Housewives of New York collectively lost their effin’ minds. But Dorinda Medley has backed that sh*t up and backed it up real fast – all the way to the first trip of the year in the Hamptons. The scene of the crime: Luann de Lesseps’ white-on-white dining area. The accused: Sonja T. Morgan. The witnesses: Ramona Singer and some other random chick whose name I think might be Mary and who looks ready to die of television-related embarrassment.
Since we were last upon the scene, Dorinda’s face has gone from fuchsia to full-on fire engine red and spittle has gathered in the corners of her mouth. Essentially, Dorinda is frothing. As she rails at Sonja for her lies, hurling bombshells about her failed marriage straight in her face, Sonja emotionally goes blank. Like, scary blank. She sips her veggies, shrugs her shoulders, and heads straight to her imaginary happy land – which is likely somewhere that exists circa 2002 in Southern France. Even Ramona screaming, “YOU NEED TO APOLOGIZE!” after Dorinda storms out of the room doesn’t phase Sonja. Dude. She’s in the sunken place.
Before we dive into a new episode of The Real Housewives of New York City tonight, Luann de Lesseps is weighing in on last week’s drama queens. Lu is sharing her feelings on the way some cast members are treating Sonja Morgan and her annoyance over the personal pain competitions.
She starts off her latest blog sharing her disgust over the way Ramona Singer behaved last week. “Just because you can act like a prima donna doesn’t mean you should! Sonja is really focusing on her health, and I was happy to buy her the bullet blender of her dreams. I’m sure if I didn’t have the blender she needed, she would have found smoothies somewhere close in Sag Harbor! Conversely, Ramona made her art dealer move furniture around her house even though they were there to sell her art. Successful artists moving furniture in the Hamptons are usually treated a lot better. My kids are both artists, and if someone treats them this way, they’d better run.”
There are few things more entertaining than a Dorinda Medleyfreak out. As her friend in my mind, I do feel bad whenever she is upset, but I cannot help being entertained every time she rants against Sonja Morgan– or whoever offended her, but it is usually Sonja.
For years Sonja has been talking about her divorce, her daughter starting boarding school and European yacht parties as if this was all current news. For the most part Sonja’s delusion and confusion is endearing and funny, but Dorinda had enough of it in the Hamptons. Sonja dared to compare her divorce (which was finalized in 2006) to death of Dorinda’s husband and Dorinda just couldn’t let it slide.
We’re halfway through the week! Time to check out what the reality stars have been up to. Sonja Morgan busted out her best animal print dress for the EarthxGlobal Gala in Dallas, Texas. Brandi Glanville was spotted during a night out with a friend in L.A. and we have many more sightings in our gallery this week!
A picture is worth a thousand words, rights? So what does it say when Cameran Eubanks, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis, and Patricia Altschulall post the same photo of Cameran, Whitney, Shep, and Kathryn with Cameran’s daughter Palmer? I’m sure that they were all excited to meet the new baby, but are they also sending a message about the “teams” for the rest of Southern CharmSeason 5? Or maybe I’m just being presumptuous… Then again, take a look at Thomas Ravenel’sTwitter account and it’s very clear that he and Patricia are feuding these days. We shall see what happens as the season continues….
