Real Housewives of New York

Tonight, an all new episode of the Real Housewives of New York airs on Bravo as the Moroccan trip from hell continues!

On the ninth episode this season titled “A Riad Divided,” the ladies’ exotic Moroccan getaway continues, as does their reading with a fortune teller. Later, the wives visit a market and take a camel ride in the desert, yet uneasy rider LuAnn takes her hump lumps when her camel tries to buck her off. Meanwhile, Jill and Ramona finally decide to have their all-important talk.

It airs at 10/9c. And on Watch What Happens Live, the guest is Sandra Bernhard.

In other NYC news, the Kelly Bensimon most of us have come to know and love did a recent rambling video interview with In the Mixx in which she revealed her desire to marry and have another baby, while also revealing her jealousy towards Kim Kardashian.

First Kelly, 43, relayed what the psychic in Morocco told her. “The psychic in French tells me I think too much, and that I am going to get married and I am going to have a baby,” said Kelly adding, “This year I’m not going to have a baby but I’m going to be pregnant and I’m going to get married.” Kelly has two daughters with ex-husband Gilles Bensimon.

And it seems Kelly is ready to make that prediction come true. “I’m on it. I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing my work. I have to start,’ ” she said. “Yes, I want to get married and have a baby.”

Kelly also added that she finds hope in others, namely a certain Kim Kardashian, for making her dreams come true. “Just the other day we hear that Kim Kardashian is engaged,” Kelly said. “She is so unbelievable and I have so much respect for her. And to be honest with you I’m not that jealous of many people – I’m just not a jealous person – but the fact that she’s so happy and engaged and found true love [with Kris Humphries], I’m jealous. I am.” Kelly adds, “It’s amazing. I’m just so happy for her … She’s wanted it, and that’s just so exciting for her.” Allrighty then. A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.

 

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KELLY’S INTERVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Less than a week after Ramona Singer dissed her costar Jill Zarin on the Watch What Happens Live aftershow (more on this below) , a new article has mysteriously made its way online today stating that Ramona is not only jealous of Bethenny Frankel’s success, but that she’s also responsible for the demise of Jill and Bethenny’s friendship.

The story posted by RadarOnline claims Ramona, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, is green with envy over Bethenny’s Skinnygirl line success. “Ramona has always been jealous of Bethenny and didn’t even want her on the show at first,” Jill a “source close the situation” tells Radar. The story also references Ramona’s recent comments that she believes Bethenny sold her drink line for way less than the reported $120 million.

Okay, so the above quote sounds plausible. It is however the next quotes that has some suspecting this has Jill’s fingerprints all over it. The “source” adds, “Ramona is trying to play the sympathy card and came up with a plan to spin her negative press by saying that she is the ‘Bethenny’ of this season… Ramona is the person who really turned Bethenny against Jill [Zarin] and now it’s backfiring on her!”

Whoa! So now Ramona is the one responsible for the Jill and Bethenny drama? Wowzers! But wasn’t it the Countess who tried to prevent Jill and Bethenny from talking last year? Odd that people, coughs Kelly Bensimon & Jill, feel the need to try to rewrite history despite what viewers saw with their own eyes.

The story becomes even more obvious that it likely came from Camp Jill when the “source” adds, “Ramona thought that if she got in a fight with Jill she could be the Bethenny of this season and gain a ton of fans like Bethenny did and build her wine to be as successful as Bethenny’s Skinnygirl brand.”

As for Ramona’s diss to Jill last Thursday, she stated on the WWHL aftershow that Jill likes to exaggerate her wealth. She basically called Jill a hypocrite for making fun of her former gay husband Brad Boles’ non existent home in Morocco on the most recent episode of the show.

“Jill loves to exaggerate,” said Ramona to Andy Cohen . “You know she sold her house four years ago and pretended on the show that she owned the house. She rented it. She pretended she owned a yellow Ferrari and rented it for one week and said, ‘Oh Bobby bought it for me.’”

Seems like the frenemy-ship between the two ladies rages on.

TELL US – IS RAMONA JEALOUS OF BETHENNY’S SUCCESS? DO YOU THINK THIS STORY WAS PLANTED BY CAMP JILL? IS RAMONA RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FIGHT BETWEEN BETHENNY & JILL?

On Thursday’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York, “Misfortune Teller,” the ladies invade begin their vacation in Morocco, with separate flights for the brunettes and blondes, of course. Hang on to your hangers magic carpets. Yeh bebe, it’s time for Morocco, Manhattan style!

So, yeh bebe dahlings, LuAnn, Jill, Kelly and Cindy arrive, and LuAnn has given up her Countess title for that of Moroccan Ambassador of Travel and Hospitality. I’ll give it to her though, the accommodations, excuse me, riad (man, my Arabic is on fire!), she has secured are beyond amazing. Flying in the following day are Alex, Ramona and Sonja, with Ramona repeatedly reminding anyone who will listen that she will require all of the comforts of home, a.k.a., “pinot grigio at all times.”

On their van ride to the ladies’ compound, Ramona and Sonja quickly become those Americans that give the rest of us a bad name. Between the talk of too much dust and too many goats, poor Alex nervously laughs and quietly cringes between the brash duo. When the ladies get to the riad, Sonja is concerned about her luggage being stolen, and–please correct me if I’m wrong–Ramona takes one look at LuAnn and Jill in their kaftans and calls them “wounded warriors.” And thus the train wreck that is Ramona begins in slow motion…

The latest episode of the Real Housewives of New York City ended with a dramatic cliffhanger as a fortune teller told Ramona Singer there was another woman in her husband’s life.

And immediately following the airing of the show, Ramona’s costar Countess LuAnn de Lesseps kept it classy by making the following tweet – “The fortune teller was spot on with all of us. It was scary.” See what the Countess did there? A not so subtle dig at Ramona by insinuating the fortune teller’s tale was accurate.

Ramona was however one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live last night, during which she denied her husband Mario Singer is cheating on her. “Well I never take fortune tellers to heart. I know what I have,” she said of Mario.

When informed of the tweet from the Countess, Ramona appeared visibly upset. “Hello, she’s the one who’s cheated left and right on her husband. She’s cheated on him, he’s cheated on her,” said Ramona. “What is she talking about? I never cheated on my husband. He never cheated on me.”

Andy Cohen also asked her the drinking question as many fans of the show this season have wondered if she has a drinking problem, you know, since she’s always shown with a half full glass of wine or flipping out whenever her own Pinot Grigio line is unavailable. Well Ramona also denied having any issues with the alcohol.

“You know what, I don’t have a drinking problem. I definitely have a glass or two at dinner. I drink responsibly. I don’t drink and drive. I wouldn’t have 4 businesses. I wouldn’t have a marriage,” said Ramona. “It’s just unfortunately some of these women are threatened by me or let’s say they just want to attack me for certain reasons.” She later added that she is simply a “social drinker” and that wine is only about 8% alcohol.

I suspect this is a case of Ramona trying too hard to plug her Pinot line on the show gone wrong, but perhaps it could be the editing. Or then again, maybe she just drinks too much. But don’t they all?

Some of our readers are also speculating if the “fortune teller” might have been planted, you know, to stir up drama. This actually never crossed my mind but it could be a possibility. For one, Brad, the guy who planned the party and set up the reading with the fortune teller, made it known he wasn’t a fan of Ramona’s.

On tonight’s all new episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, the ladies head to Morocco!

On the 8th episode this season titled “Misfortune Teller,” LuAnn hosts the ladies in Morocco, where she nabs Sonja and Ramona trying to secretly leave the property shortly after they arrive. Later, Jill runs into an old friend while shopping, and he invites the women to his birthday party, which features a fortune teller and a snake charmer.

Will this be a repeat of Scary Island? We can only hope have no idea but judging from the Bravo previews, it will be a dramatic trip that will span over 3 episodes! The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Ramona Singer and news figure Willie Geist.

Meanwhile, in an interview with E! Online, Sonja Morgan briefly touched on her money and legal woes. Sonja filed bankruptcy last year and less than a week ago, a judge denied her appeal to get a $7 million judgment against her dismissed. Hannibal Pictures sued Sonja for agreeing to finance a movie, and then backing out of the deal.

“I had a slate of five films ready to go,” explained Sonja of her production company Sonja Productions. “I had one movie in the can and another movie fell through and a big lawsuit.”

Sonja adds that she was no longer able to finance the movie after she filed for divorce. “It was really hard on me…all while I was dealing with the divorce and I have a little child to take care of and a big house to maintain,” she said. A preview clip of the new episode is below.

 

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S ALL NEW EPISODE?

More bad news for Real Housewives of New York City star Sonja Morgan.

On Friday, the United States Court of Appeals upheld a $7 million judgment against her, holding her personally liable for fraudulent conduct.

The original ruling came last year after Hannibal Pictures and its owner Richard Rionda del Castro sued Sonja for reneging on a deal she signed. Sonja had agreed to fund the movie “Fast Flash to Bang Time” (yes that’s the actual name of the movie) which was to feature John Travolta, only to pull out of the financing deal causing the movie not to be made.

“With the confirmation by one of the highest Courts of our country, the masks are falling and there is no longer any doubt that we were defrauded and severely damaged. We are now going to collect to the fullest extent of the law,” said Hannibal’s Rionda del Castro in a statement.

Sonja filed for bankruptcy last November, claiming the movie was never made because its planned star, Travolta, needed “various conditions” that her company, Sonja Productions, couldn’t provide.

In the Chapter 11 filing, Sonja listed her debt at $19.8 million with over $13.5 million in assets.

The NY Post is reporting that Victoria de Lesseps, daughter of Countess LuAnn de Lesseps, was quietly expelled from her private school months ago after a video of her rolling what appeared to be a joint and using a racial slur appeared online.

Sources tell the Post Victoria was asked to leave the Tony Ross School in the Hamptons after the video episode, but LuAnn denies the report to Page Six, instead stating Victoria left the school on her own.

The Real Housewives of NYC star’s rep tells the Post, “Your information is incorrect. Victoria withdrew from Ross School five months ago, but it was unrelated to the video. She is happily looking forward to studying art in Paris this summer.” When did this video come out you ask? Exactly five months ago but remember, it was completely unrelated.

In the video, which we were able to view before it was taken down from youtube, Victoria was video chatting with a friend before she started rolling what appeared to be a joint and continuously using the “n-word.” You can read more about that here. And days after the video leaked online, photos of the 16-year-old came out showing her drinking and smoking. LuAnn issued a statement back then calling her daughter’s actions “unacceptable.” Tuition at the private school is said to run upward of $45,000 a year.

Meanwhile, one of our readers alerted us to an old unflattering report from the NY Post about the Countess. See back in August 2008 (before our blog existed), the Post reported the Countess, along with her then husband the Count Alexandre de Lesseps, attended a wedding in the Hamptons and acted like a drunken mess in front of 200 guests.

The Post reported LuAnn yanked the mike away from Andy Hilfiger’s band and proceeded to sing two songs. “She knocked over the drum set while smiling at the horrified guests,” a source said.

Oh but if only it ended there. LuAnn then turned her attention to the poor unsuspecting guests. “She was trying to make out with women and married men,” the source said. “A pregnant wife caught her in the act, stormed off and walked home in disgust.” The Count “tried to make her leave and was seen throwing her to the ground in the parking lot,” the spy continued.

“She wasn’t just kissing the married men, she was also grabbing their [crotches],” another witness told the Post. Yikes! And while LuAnn and her husband denied the allegations to the Post, the groom stated, “At these parties, people always get frisky. All I can say is that she didn’t try to grab me.”

Less than a year later, LuAnn would go on to write a book about class and etiquette. You know what they say dahling — “Money Can’t Buy You Class.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON BOTH OF THE REPORTS BY THE POST? SHOCKED BY LUANN’S PAST BEHAVIOR?

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York City was all about vaginas, vacations, and Pinot… again. Jill Zarin is hosting an anti-bullying fundraiser, and while guests are paying $200 to attend, the irony of Jill championing this event is priceless. Kelly accidentally sees Sonja’s ladybits, Cindy takes her good friends on a “brunettes only” weekend, New Housewife Pinot Grigio high-jacks Jill’s charity event, and sweet LuAnn just wants everyone to get along, dammit!

The episode begins with LuAnn and Sun-yah meeting for lunch to discuss a girls trip. LuAnn is planning to “break the tension” between the ladies. Since this is a classy restaurant, Sonja, predictably arrives straight from the gym with a fur thrown over her sports bra. Sonja states she wants to go to Italy for Truffle Season (that’s a thing?) because “everyone will be there!” Everyone except the NY Housewives, that is, because LuAnn is just so over Italy and wants to vacation somewhere exotic. Somewhere like Morocco, which is the Paris of the Middle East, didn’t you know? Bravo, desperate to capitalize on a repeat of Scary Island, decides Luann must “invite” all the ladies, but LuAnn has some reservations about Kelly being included because no one wants “Scary Desert” on the horizon. Well, no one but Bravo, because ratings are everything dah-ling, so Kelly is IN!
