The Countess and Heather were formerly close pals but things have taken a dramatically different turn. Things started to unravel in last week’s episode when they argued over f-bombs. Heather called Luann out for being a hypocrite – rightfully so – and in the final day of Turks and Caicos things erupt over who brought a man to the house and left him unattended in the middle of the night.
Expressing frustration over what became of their friendship Heather has seen sides to Luann she definitely doesn’t like. “I don’t even recognize Luann this season,” the outspoken Real Housewives Of New York star admits. “I guess what she’s saying with ‘Don’t count out the Countess’ is that after a demotion on the show, she’s found her legs again and came back with a vengeance.”
Sources say Bethenny and Eric have been “quietly” dating for a couple months and are enjoying each other’s company “casually.” They have mutual friends and travel in similar social circles, so they’re “seeing where it goes” before making anything public.
Dorinda Medley is weighing in on the episode that may well have been the tipping point in her Real Housewives of New York freshmen season. She shares her support of Ramona Singer’s (old) selfish and (new) single behavior, why spending a week with her castmates can drive anyone to drink, and how too many drinks can lead to an all out war about F-bombs over dinner.
“Well, here we are in the Turks and Caicos—still—and all hell is on the verge of breaking loose,” begins Dorinda. “Scary Island 2.0 doesn’t even begin to describe it…Seriously, it feels more like Purgatory as the days go on. I’m beyond exhausted and simply not used to being with so many women all the time.” Admitting she is “short-fused” which caused her to overreact about Heather Thomson walking ahead of her to dinner at Fire and Ice, Dorinda was amused this episode when Bethenny Frankel and “Madame Yummie went on a ‘I know you are but what am I?’ adventure and out know-it-all’d each other. Fun to watch!”
Well, well…another day, another dollar; another Real Housewife, another vodka collection. Luann de Lesseps is the latest Bravolebrity to unleash her own alcoholic beverage on us.
A Real Housewife and her booze will not be soon parted, so I suppose it only makes sense that of all the industries a Housewife goes in to the cocktail industry. Luann will be joining the ranks of Housewives booze endeavors, pioneered of course by her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel, with ‘Countess Collection’ vodka, available this fall.
On Doridna and Luann and that f—ing dinner. “What the f— happened!!!??? Lu and Dorinda are drunkity-drunk-drunk-drunk! It was fun to see Lu let loose and have fun but Dorinda… Hello, she needs subtitles? How dirty was that martini? Very odd. Dorinda and Heather has some underlying issues going on, that’s for sure.”
Andy shares a sneak peak of all the drama and reveals some surprising things that happened on reunion day. And of course some not so surprising things, like that Luann de Lesseps got into it big time with Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson! “Luann was guns blazing and I have never seen her so fired up,” reveals Andy.
She starts off confessing that she came across like a smarty pants. “Although I stand by what I was saying at lunch, I am self-aware and did see that I was particularly aggressive and acting like a know-it-all. That doesn’t change that it was funny how lit up Heather got by it. We had just made up and were in a good place and she couldn’t help jumping on that.”
Yesterday the Real Housewives Of New York taped their reunion. Amid a season of off-the-wall drama, serious friendships ups and downs, major cast changes, and the yet unseen “uncool” utterance, the reunion was sure to be epic. Especially with with 8 Housewives!
The reunion ran all day, beginning in the morning and didn’t wrap until after 9 PM. Andy Cohen had a WWHL taping with Jeff and Jenni scheduled, and raced from the RHONY reunion set, right into the WWHL studio. Talk about pressed for time.
