On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through theReal Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.
Bethenny filed for divorce WAY back in January 2013, but she and her soon-to-be-ex, Jason Hoppy, have been squabbling over money, custody and their luxurious apartment ever since. Now Bethenny has been ordered to cough up $100,000 to his lawyers. The payment is to be subtracted from whatever financial settlement they reach — if they ever reach one.
Ramona is doing a negligee photoshoot with her dog so Avery can hang it on her dorm wall. Right – because everyone wants a calendar of their mother in over-the-hill lingerie. Holding a dog. With crazy-eyes. You know how they always say dogs resemble their master… Sonja comes over to also take photos of herself with her dog for Avery's dorm room? She yammers on about how she's now starting a men's and women's shirt collection. Meanwhile she lets her dog drink water out of Ramona's stemware.
Sonja puts on a happy face and keeps it together – she doesn't think anyone would know from looking at her how out of control her life is. She describes herself as a cat with nine-lives (and in 8 of them she forgot to put on pants!). Oh… I dunno, when I look at Sonja, I see a trainwreck.
Ramona Singer is synonymous with a few things: pinot, crazy eyes, rude comments, and stirring up trouble. On last week's episode of Real Housewives of New York Ramona returned fresh from a safari with crazy ideas of treating Housewives like an anthropological experiment. Sadly for her, Andy Cohen has already done that!
In response to Ramona putting her turtle time where it does not belong,LuAnn de Lesseps is reminding her that elegance is learned! And part of having class is knowing when your opinions are not warranted.
"Ramona jumps into the Heather/Aviva fight and calls Heather [Thomson]out for not inviting Aviva [Drescher] to her tenth anniversary party," LuAnn writes in her Bravo blog. "Heather does have a history of not inviting people who she thinks are going to ruin a good time, but it's her party and she can invite whomever she wants."
Now both Sonja and Ramona are claiming their lack of attendance had absolutely nothing to do with Aviva, but other issues arose in their lives. Ramona claims she wanted to spend the weekend with Avery who was leaving for school, and Sonja tells Page Six she was actually in France at the time! Ummmm…
Guess what, y'all? Aviva Drescher is going out of her way to prove she's a writer. I mean, that has to be the reason behind the most self-serving, self-pitying, condescending Bravo blog in the history of Bravo blogs (and that's saying something!) rehashing "ghostgate" while dismissing her book feud with Carole Radziwill as silly in light of great literary works like The Berenstain Bears. The Real Housewives of New York star's lame attempts at humor and witticism fall flat as she accuses her detractors of planting negative reviews on Amazon (because there is no way that someone may not really like her book). Andy Cohen should consider making a drinking game about all the times she calls Heather Thomson "street" in one entry. Aviva is just too much. I liked her last season, but this is ridiculously unattractive behavior….Avivictim for sure!
My personal opinion is that waiting too long (over a year) between seasons leaves viewers uninvested in storylines and confused. I mean we don't even remember why Aviva Drescher started hating Ramona Singer or when LuAnn de Lesseps became besties with Heather Thomson. Or when Sonja Morgan last wore underpants. It's just too frazzled. It's like trying to decipher the product names in an iKea catalog. While it's all kindsa topsy-turvy drama, it all revolves around Meviva – just the way she likes it!
Aviva is one of those women who is validated by attention – any attention – which is why she keeps confabulating drama that centers around sheer ridiculous-ness. She seemingly doesn't care how idiotic she looks so long as she's being focused upon and talked about. And God bless the crazy train of her thoughts because it's working!
