Admittedly, I do this every time a newbie joins a franchise. I fall in major like with the fresh face only to come back and bite my words a few seasons later. Real Housewives of New York is no different. I love Kristen Taekman. I adore that she's friends with Carole Radziwill and (Holla!) Heather Thomson. She's even a good sport with LuAnn deLesseps (who I like more now that she's in smaller doses) and Sonja Morgan. Best of all? She finds Aviva Drescher to be a total nut job…and, truth be told, I was quite the Aviva fan her freshman season. Hey, at least I realize my shortcomings, right?
Beginning her Bravo blog, Kristen jokes, "Yup, the 'new girl' is taking all these fancy NY Ladies to Montana. Naturally, Carole and I need a wax. Funny, so Carole and I spoke that morning and go figure, we both had waxes that day at the same place so we decided to go together! Don't all girlfriends go to hold their friend's hands while they get their kitty waxed? Ha ha! I roll in wax for real. I wax everything! Arms, legs, mustache, brows, kitty…TMI I know — but after all, this is a reality show! So we are waxed and ready for Montana! PS. Carole is a natural blonde who knew?? #shhhhhhhh" Bwahahaha! TMI, Kristen. T.M.I.
Aviva Drescher has gone from sort of amusingly unhinged to absolutely deranged on this season of Real Housewives of New York. From her father George's antics, to fighting with everyone, Avicious needs to use her newly-minted inhaler to take several deep breaths and get ahold of herself.
After arguing with Kristen Taekman about the validity of her asthma in this week's episode, Aviva is ranting in her Bravo blog about what a horrible person Kristen is. Be ready – it's um… Avicious!
Aviva begins by insulting Kristen's husband, the highly contemptible Josh, and continues by insulting pretty much everything else about Kristen.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies headed to the wild, wild west in Montana. Kristen Taekman organized the trip and like the over-eager rookie she is, she expected everyone to be jumping with glee at the prospect of spending a week at a dude ranch far, far away from any actual dudes. Now you know Sonja T. Morgan was going through withdrawal something terrible – something that even a pair of cotton granny panties couldn't cure.
Before the ladies left Aviva Drescherdecided she needed a little attention. Because you know - Meviva. Aviva had suddenly came down with a rampant case of asthma. She's allergic to horses, and hay, and long plane rides with women she does not like, and best-selling books, and being away from Saint Reid, savoir of upper east side princesses with daddy issues. Clearly Aviva is not allergic to asses – I mean she's able to be around George.
Andy Cohen is the ringleader when it comes to all things Housewives, not just the reunions. The former Bravo executive is the man we have to blame for our weekly obsession. It all started with an idea to go behind the gates of Coto de Caza and see how the other half live in the Real Housewives of Orange County.
Now we have multiple versions that we can watch a couple of nights a week, all year long. Thanks Andy!
But when Andy really shines is when he is trying to referee a housewives reunion or interacting with guests on his late night gab fest Watch What Happens Live!.
Andy recently opened up with a few snippets into what it is like to host a Housewives reunion, how he preps and what WWHL guest made him the most nervous.
Trying to keep up the charade, Sonja has been claiming that she actually sold the property but court papers prove otherwise! Sonja was attempting to liquidate the property for $8 million to settle the $7 million dollar judgment against her, but it failed to sell. The court then decided she wasn't making a serious effort and took matters into their own hands.
And this is why you don't mess with Ramona Singer. I kid, I kid, but the Real Housewives of New York star is still embroiled in all the craziness of her husband's "alleged" affair with a girl named Kasey Dexter. And Kasey is all about making sure that everyone knows what a dog Mario Singer has been in the meantime. Can you blame her?
Ramona and Mario are all about presenting a united front when it comes to denying Mario's extra-curricular relationship. Unfortunately for Mario, his paramour didn't get the memo.
One of Bravo's original franchises may suffer from lackluster ratings but it certainly hasn't suffered from lack of drama. I'm not sure why viewers haven't connected to the storylines because I've found the combination of the ladies interesting, and the storylines – for the most part – amusing.
Ramona Singer took to twitter today to post photos of her behind-the-scenes hair and makeup and also reveal her look. It's quite different from the Ramona satin cocktail dresses of yore – and that's a good thing. Thankfully, the bang curler is still present. It's her signature look!
Kristen Taekman also prepared for her first ever Housewives reunion – it should be an experience. Photos are below!
