I don’t know if it was just my mood or what, but tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was the funnest and funniest in a long time! Andy’s guests were Luann de Lesseps and Housewives Superfan Michael Rapaport (yes, that’s his official title now) and they were hilarious together. Both of them were there to have fun and not be too serious and it was a good time.
Andy starts off the night by bringing up Luann’ssurprise birthday party last night – which Ramona Singer was uninvited to! Ramona took to Snapchat to vent about it and Andy played the video for her. Ramona says that Lu’s fiance called her at the last minute and “dis-invited” her because of rain and Ramona says there’s no rain in HER apartment and it’s big enough for a party. Luann laughs at the video.
Luann de Lesseps is crazy, happy in love after a whirlwind romance to Tom d’Agostino Jr. and the Countess is about to shed her title for a New Year’s Wedding complete with 3 dresses (and how many Bravo cameras, again?!).
To be honest, I really thought that Ramonjawas the only Real Housewives duo that we could count on to last forever. Based on the most recent episodes of Real Housewives of New York, this could not be further from the truth. Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer are no longer best friends. It is blatantly obvious and pretty sad. These two used to bring some lighthearted laughs to the show. Now we are stuck watching them argue about who has the best imaginary business empire.
Ramona has been coming for Sonja and usually Sonja just lets the insults roll off her back. I don’t know if that’s because she is just a positive person who’s not into the controversy or if she just didn’t notice that her supposed best friend was coming for her with veiled concerns. Sonja has finally read the writing on the wall and she is calling out Ramona for being a hypocrite and a shitty friend. Well, not in those words, but she did have a lot to say about her.
Lately, I could not tell if my mind was playing tricks on me, but I couldn’t figure out why Bethenny Frankel looked so different to me these days. Every time I watch Real Housewives of New York, I try to figure out what is going on with her face. I thought that maybe it was just the change up with her short hair cut or that she got a new makeup artist or something, but then I started to look back at some old photos. It was obvious that her jaw looks very different than it used to.
Bethenny‘s jaw used to be a lot more defined than it is now. And Bethenny is always talking about how she keeps it real and she’s already copped to getting breast implants, so I am sort of confused by why she didn’t say why her jaw looks so drastically different. Well, she’s finally come clean about the changes.
There is no way that I am the only one who finds it incredibly hypocritical that Ramona Singerof all people has decided to call someone out for partying and embarrassing behavior. I’m not denying that Sonja Morgan likes to party, but I don’t feel like it’s cool for Ramona to talk down to her while filming a Real Housewives of New York episode.
Sonja and Ramona have been partners in crime when it comes to partying on the show, so it is just super weird for Ramona to be such a hater. Plus, if Ramona really did have serious concerns, wouldn’t it be better to talk to a good friend away from the camera crew? Maybe that’s naive of me, but I just don’t see how publicly putting a friend on blast could ever help her out. Well, it looks like Ramona is not done talking about Sonja’s drinking.
Ramona Singer may be The Apologizer, but Dorinda Medley is the Defender. The Real Housewives of New York star took to her blog after this week’s episode to stick up for John, and Jules. And she had a few choice words for some of her co-stars, though she doesn’t call them out by name. Get your popcorn and Pinot ready because it’s a long one.
Dorinda starts off, “I won’t propose a toast this week, I’ll propose an idea: Let’s all try to be better versions of ourselves — for once. The show so far revolves around two things: Jules and John. Thank God for me, right?! What did they ever do without Dorinda? Oh that’s right…lie, deflect, attack, belittle, accuse… I wasn’t raised that way, and I’m going to go out on a limb and say the others weren’t either, but there’s something about having privilege and opportunity that turns a lady into a vixen, or a vixen into a viper.”
The women on Real Housewives of New York like to keep everything within their clique and this includes their men. I would love it if someone made a meme with a web of all the ladies and the dudes they have married and dated. If that ever happens, there will be a lot of overlap. Ramona Singer knows this firsthand since she just talked about how she dated Luann de Lesseps’sfiance Thomas D’Agostino Jr before he got with the Countess.
This is pretty shocking since Ramona has been pretty critical of Luann’s dating life so I can’t believe that they dated the same person. But anyway, I don’t know what “dating” means anymore. It’s such a vague term. Were they boyfriend and girlfriend? Did they go out on one date? Did they just hook up after some wild nights at Beautique? It’s abundantly unclear. Thankfully, Ramona clarified. Well, at least she did a little bit.
I started watching the Real Housewives because I was fascinated by wealthy women living lifestyles that I could never possibly attain. Weirdly enough, I actually find myself relating to a lot of the cast members in regard to many aspects. Sure, I will never be a rich and famous reality star, but I do find myself agreeing with a lot of the comments that the women make. More often than that I have a “that’s so me” feeling when I’m watching these shows.
Yes, I know that I would never be able to pay thousands of dollars for a spin class to benefit a charity like RHOBH ladies did this past season. I also don’t have my own fitness studio to work out in like Tamra Judge does on RHOC. But I do have something in common with these women: the difficulty to stay fit. I’m not throwing shade and saying that they don’t look amazing – because they honestly all do – but just like myself, they have also complained about dieting and fitness pretty often. There have been a lot of times when the women from Real Housewives have understood the struggle to get in shape.
