The ONLY interesting part of the last Real Housewives of New York episode was a conversation that wasn’t even filmed between Carole Radziwill and Barbara Kavovit. The conversation was recorded because Carole still had her microphone on, but we never actually “saw” the two of them talking. Not only did Barbara question the then-impending union between Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino, but it was even more captivating because she fought her hardest to stop the episode from airing.
This woman actually took legal action to prevent the episode from being shown and of course that really just built up the intrigue more than anything. She wasn’t saying anything that the other cast members and even the fans haven’t expressed before, but the hushed tones and the super public legal squabble were the only entertaining aspects of such a forgettable episode.
I’m all for using reality TV to do something significant and spread awareness for causes that matter. With that said, I also have to admit that the last Real Housewives of New York episode was rather forgettable. As far as the story lines go, pretty much nothing happened. Again, I want to emphasize that I think it’s great that the whole cast was genuinely charitable, but the episode itself was just a little blah. Nevertheless, Bethenny Frankel had some interesting things to say about Ramona Singer after the episode aired.
Of course I’m happy that there wasn’t actually a scandal disrupting a charity event, but maybe there could have been a hook up or some humorous quotes to get me through the episode? Is that asking for too much? Apparently so.
It’s hard for me to remember Real Housewives of New York before Dorinda Medley joined the cast and I never want to go back to that era. She manages to keep it real, deliver hilarious one-liners, and check anyone who goes against her – all while managing to be extremely lovable.
Dorinda is someone who has an opinion on everything and everyone and this even includes reality stars who are on other Bravo shows. I have no idea how Dorinda wasn’t a Real Housewife sooner, but I (naively) hope she stays on this show forever, especially since she and Sonja Morgan seem to be cool again.
Tinsley was a delight, but I was really anticipating Andy Cohenasking a bunch of questions about living with Sonja Morgan and her brown ice. But that did not happen. Weirdly enough, there were zero Sonja-related questions, and I learned pretty much nothing about Tinsley. It was a forgettable episode in all honesty, but I watched so you don’t have to. I’ll share the (very) few interesting parts.
Dorinda is throwing a charity event for Beauty for Freedom, so she enlists Bethenny’s help – or at least, her commentary – in the effort. They meet out shopping, where Bethenny is more concerned with the “gigantic apartment” in SoHo she’s just purchased, which is 2,000 square feet larger than her current pad. She’s good at flipping properties, she says. And she’d like you to watch her real estate spinoff, please. She’s not good at forgiving Ramona, however, and has no plans of doing so. Though she does vow to be cordial when they’re forced together at social functions.
How could a person be “surprised” that a conversation she had with a Real Housewives cast member while the show was filming would actually get aired in an episode? In all honesty, that’s just ridiculous, but a woman named Barbara Kavovit is claiming just that. She even tried to have a judge block a Real Housewives of New York episode from airing the “private” conversation. (Tonight’s episode)
Sorry, girl. There’s no such thing as privacy when it comes to reality television. Plus this attempt to prevent the episode from airing has just increased the hype around it. In short, this woman is way out of bounds and her plan completely backfired.
Good lord – Ramona was SO clueless in the latest episode of Real Housewives Of New York that even I’m shocked. Ramona begged Luann for invite to the wedding, just so she could turn her down? She actually told people this! Yet she’s still upset that Luann decided “no way” on inviting her?
In addition to landing a real estate spinoff on Bravo with friend and Million Dollar Listing NY star Fredrik Eklund, Bethenny will now be investing in – or trampling on – the dreams of would be entrepreneurs far and wide! In addition to Shark Tank’s standard panel, Bethenny will guest star when only four of the six “sharks” are present.
