A little backstory if you have not seen this week's episode of the Real Housewives of New York City. Heather Thomson takes all the girls to her gorgeous home in the Berkshires for a relaxing weekend. Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are complaining from the very beginning. I was actually shocked at how these two were behaving. Did they miss that lesson on normal decency and proper behavior in someone else's home?
But things went from bad to worse when the ladies went out on the lake in a couple of canoes….
Are any of the real housewives the first people you think about going to when you need financial advice? Probably not if we are talking about Teresa Giudice, Alexis Bellino or Lynne Curtain, whose financial pitfalls have taught us what not to do.
We noticed that last night Aviva's intro was cut from the beginning of Real Housewives of New York. Of course that got our minds whirling – does that mean we'll never get to know how her leg gets thrown? Did she quit the show mid-season? What happened?
Reportedly it's all a ratings ploy by Bravo! Aviva will be absent from a couple episodes. She wasn't able to attend Heather Thomson's trip to The Berkshires because of a family commitment and according to NaughtyButNiceRob she refused to attend a subsequent cast trip to Montana.
E! News recently spoke to the Skinnygirl mogul at a Cinco de Mayo party — perfect holiday for the girl who invented the Skinnygirl margarita — where Bethenny opened up about her Mother's Day plans and how she is holding up amidst all the drama. But did she say anything about her rumored romance with Warren Lichtenstein or Michael Cerussi?
Last night on theReal Housewives of New York things got rowdy in The Berkshires. Or should I say Ramona Singer went bonkers in The Berkshires. Oh, The Berkshires – who goes there? They're just so gauche! They're so ugh – has anyone even heard of them? What are they, like a truck stop? Do they even have pinot? I mean, we know they don't have air conditioner! Who vacations without a beach? The good people all go to The Hamptons. Just ask Ramona – she's the expert on all things classy and high society. All the best society girls appear on trashy reality shows and behave like, well, trash!
Really, if LuAnn de Lesseps is any kinda friend, she'll stop taking Ramona to aerial yoga and start making her endure regular reading lessons from Class With The Countess! So Ramona happened, in The Berkshires, with the wine glass.
Before all that Sonja Morgan, takes her sexy j downtown for some business lessons from Kristen Taekman's husband Josh. Right off the bat we know this isn't going to go well because Kristen lives in a rental. A rental she can afford, but a rental nonetheless, which makes her a peasant in the eyes of Miss The Toaster Oven That Never Could!
Last week things got heated during a spa-trip when Ramona flung champagne at Kristen because she dared to get into Pinot's business. The business she was talking about in front of everyone. If you're laughing at the hypocrisy of Pinot protesting about meddling, you're not alone. But don't worry – Kristen got her back when she splashed Ramona with some holy water hot tub juices.
Tonight Ramona will retaliate again when she flings an entire glass of wine in Kristen's face requiring medical intervention! Well Ramona is apologizing in advance for her behavior during the episode.
First thing's first, Heather Thomson is the real deal and I love her for it. She isn't fake and she continues to call the other New York housewives on their BS. Oh, how I wish she would have been in the room when Ramona Singerthrew wine on Kristen Taekman. Surely she would have been as shocked as we were. But she could have said something, unlike us viewers at home, who could only stare at our TV's.
Heather Thomson just keeps keeping it real. The 'street' member of the Real Housewives of New York City recently appeared at the New York Stock Exchange as Wet Paint's parent company, Viggle, rang the opening bell. While there, Heather dished about what we have in store for us for the rest of the season, her biggest regret, if her friendships are real and which tagline is her favorite.
This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charmreunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed.
