A lot of your favorite reality TV stars enjoyed their Monday off for Memorial Day. Many of them shared photos hanging out with family and friends and sweet sentiments honoring the troops in their captions.
Real Housewives of New York
Happy Friday! We have a fresh new batch of reality star sightings today. The Real Housewives of New York City star Luann de Lesseps was spotted out and about in the city and then again as she attended the Bella New York magazine’s beauty cover launch.
Real Housewives of Atlanta stars Kandi Burruss and Cynthia Bailey were backstage showing their support of Jussie Smollett‘s “Sum of My Music” tour in Atlanta. Kandi also brought along her daughter Riley.
This week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City was so good and so drama-filled that it was hard to wrap your head around everything that went on! Bethenny Frankel took to her Bravo blog to break down a few highlights of episode, including an explanation of why she didn’t give Dorinda Medley a gushing parade of praise over the nutcracker.
She starts off, “Well, we survived the Berkshires…barely. I’m glad we were able to have some laughs at the end of the night and start fresh the next day.”
There are some scenes from Real Housewives of New York that have become so iconic over the years, we practically have them memorized – Bethenny Frankel screaming “GO TO SLEEP!” on Scary Island, the infamous Brooklyn Bridge Beatdown, Dorinda Medley’s Clip! Clip! tirade in the Bronx, and Luann de Lesseps falling in those Mexican bushes. But this week gave us our newest save-to-permanent-file moment: Ramona Singer on a Manhattan street reading Bethenny for filth. Now, I don’t know if Martin Scorsese is really watching Vanderpump Rules like Lala says, but he might have shot this scene. Seriously: It. Is. EVERYTHING.
Before we take to the streets, we must revisit the murder mystery Berkshires dinner at which Bethenny and Carole Radziwill are tearing into one another. There’s so much talking and half-running away and coming back again, it’s impossible to capture every moment. But here’s the gist: Bethenny called Adam “an operator” and Luann “a loser.” Carole claims she never knew about the Houston incident, specifically, but did know that Bethenny always thought Adam was a little shifty. It turns out, so does Luann! She’s still holding on to the fact that Adam left her niece for Carole three years ago – in the Countess’s pure white kitchen of all places!! <clutches pearls>
Even though most of the Real Housewives of New York cast members are skeptical of Sonja Morgan’s prowess as a businesswoman, she actually has another fashion line. No, it’s not in the works. It actually exists and has products that are available right now.
What’s next? Sonja has her own line of shoes.
Bravo’s The LookBook reports that Sonja’s shoe line is a collaboration with a New York City-based shoe brand called French Sole. The line consists mostly of flat shoes like loafers and ballet flats.
When Luann de Lesseps was arrested for public intoxication in December 2017, it seemed like she was done. Clearly, that was not the case. After a super public divorce, Christmas Eve arrest, and a stint in rehab, Luann is more popular than ever.
The “Money Can’t Buy You Class” singer has performed in cabaret show with dates in New York and Los Angeles, but now she wants to take her performance on the road with a national tour. Yes. Yes. Yes. The only way this could be even better is if it was filmed and shown on Bravo.
Mr. Feathersby (was that his name?) and his assistant met their demise on this week’s Real Housewives of New York alongside the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwell. It’s been a slow death for this duo, played out mainly in talking head interviews and passive aggressive commentary. Usually Bethenny is the clear heavy hitter when she decides to tear down a cast mate, but Carole has the wit and vocabulary to give her a run for her Skinnygirl money!
I’m not going to lie (and I’m sure I’ll get a lot of heat for it), but I have been a tried and true Carole fan since she joined the show. However, this season she’s turned into, well, a Bravo “housewife” completely caught up in her own world, ready and willing to participate in all the petty drama. Perhaps she learned from Bethenny, who has been making petty drama her job since she burst (back) on the scene. Either way, their feud has been a long time in the making if only for the fact that Bethenny sabotages every relationship she has. If someone is as “strong” as she perceives herself to be, they become her competition, not her friend. It’s at that point she focuses on the Sonja Morgans of the world to remind herself that she is superior. It’s a whole emotional case study, and nobody has time for that!
What were you doing over Memorial Day weekend? Hopefully you weren’t celebrating like two of our favorite Real Housewives of New York…although if you were, you’ve got a Maserati or vacay in Palm Beach, so you’re already doing much better than I am!
Poor Ramona Singer totaled her new toy in a fender bender (or a Ramotor vehicle accident, as she would probably say) while driving on Montauk Highway. Near Bethenny Frankel’s house, maybe? Meanwhile, Tinsley Mortimer got into a bit of a tiff with Luann deLesseps’ ex-husband Tom D’Agostino, Jr. while dining out in Palm Beach, Florida.
