Real Housewives of New York

Ramona-Singer-Curls-Angry-Closeup-RHONY

As The Real Housewives Of New York get ready for their Mexico trip, sponsored by Skinnygirl (TM) Bethenny Frankel, Tinsley Mortimer decides to mimic her favorite gradeschool character by moving into a room on the tippy top floor! (Eloise shout out) of her favorite hotel. Because she’s a grownup now and thinks this will prove it. Plus, moving furniture is just too overwhelming – as is walking, thinking, breathing, and blinking for dear Tins. In fact, she’s getting the vapors just thinking about it all. She just wants to kiss random men in public (like the one Carole Radziwill sets her up with) and get her blowouts on the UES, where room service and clean towels rain down from heaven!!!

Good thing Sonja Morgan’s new eyebrows have been painted solidly to her face, so she’s able to make the wide assortment of facial expressions necessary when Tinsley announces her big-girl plans at dinner. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer’s also got a few facial contortions expressions in store for Bethenny, who sits down with her frenemy to discuss her trip invite – or lack thereof.

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: A Slippery Slope

Last week’s episode was a little rough for Tinsley Mortimer, but she’s very grateful to have a new sympathetic ear in Bethenny Frankel. The Real Housewives of New York City star took to her blog to share her appreciation for Bethenny’s kindness and to apologize for her loose lips oversharing private marital information, too.

Tinsley shared her relief at Bethenny’s empathy. “After a rough night with the girls and feeling as if they really have little understanding of the unrelenting and unending stress I still feel, I decided from that point forward to try and be quiet about my situation. Though feeling a bit chagrined from the night before, I got up and prepared for a fun, distracting day on the slopes. It did make me feel better when Bethenny approached me and appeared to have a greater understanding of what I was feeling and apologized for the gang-up the previous evening. I appreciated the gesture, especially from her, because she has been going through her own drama.”

Bethenny Frankel

For the most part, the Real Housewives of New York cast is full of dynamic characters. No matter what you think about Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley, you have to admit that they really bring it as cast members. Excluding some people from that list is my subtle way of saying who the boring ones are. Why are they on the cast when there are so many viable candidates in New York City?

Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.

Dorinda-Medley-Green-Shirt-RHONY

Ever since Dorinda Medley’s “CLIP!” moment, The Real Housewives Of New York housewife has been keeping it mum on the blogs. But she’s back this week to rehash her Bronx beatdown of Sonja Morgan and to translate what exactly she was trying to drunkenly say at the ladies’ Vermont dinner. In a nutshell: Dorinda thinks Sonja is certifiably cuckoo and that Luann D’Agostino is sometimes a blow hard, albeit a harmless one that should just be given a break, already.

First, Dorinda comments on the new “Bloop!” in town – aka, Clip. She jokes, “Clip Clip Clip! I have no idea where that comes from, I just couldn’t figure out a away to stop Sonja from saying more lies! I had no idea it would replace STFU and be used worldwide! Thank you everyone for your messages showing me your ‘Clip Clip Clip’ moments.”

Luann D'Agostino

Say what you will about The Real Housewives Of New York, but these women (well, most of them) know how to bounce back from an argument within the time it takes to go from a main course to dessert. And Luann D’Agostino was a prime example of this whiplash-like behavior in Vermont, where the drama reached a crescendo at dinner and the sex talk reached new levels of raunch.

In her blog, Luann explains why she’s always got Dorinda Medley’s back, no matter how much they bicker, and why she is hopeful that Sonja Morgan will tone it down about her marriage – eventually.

Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York was all about manners and anal sex – and who has which, or both, or – oh hell! I don’t know. I do know that Dorinda Medley has very strong opinions about it all, and the artist formerly known as Countess Luann de Lesseps [D’Agostino] gets caught in Dorinda’s crosshairs because of it – sort of. Alas, having used up all of her “CLIP! CLIIIIIIPPPP!”s for the week, Gangsta Do is forced to come up with new ways of saying, I think you’re a world class asswipe, m’lady! to her trip mate.

It seems everyone has survived their first night in Vermont. Bethenny Frankel locking Luann in the basement hasn’t actually killed the NEW BRIDE, so the ladies are free to indulge in avocado toast before hitting the slopes. While Ramona Singer brings her sister-wife, Sonja Morgan, coffee in bed, Bethenny apologizes to Tinsley Mortimer for being cold to her at dinner the previous night. She’s going through her own relationship hell, so she doesn’t need to be piling on anyone else about theirs. Tinsley feels slightly relieved that she’ll be attacked by one less Housewife on this trip, but she’s still generally overwhelmed (because that is her default setting).

On tonight’s Real Housewives of New York City, the author and singer formerly known as the Countess will be adding another chapter to her next book on etiquette: no talking about anal sex at the dinner table.

Tonight the RHONY women sit down for dinner during their ski getaway, and a round of  “Truth or Dare” gets a little too dirty for Dorinda and Luann’s taste, but the dinner winds up with Dorinda attacking Luann.

Luann D’Agostino’s engagement and marriage to Tom D’Agostino has been haunting The Real Housewives Of New York all season long – and apparently, she’d like to squeeze a few more drops of blood from its dead carcass. (Sorry for the gross metaphor. But I am so done with this particular storyline!)

In addition to blasting Sonja Morgan for poking fun at her relationship, Luann also rehashes her ire with being stuck in Bethenny Frankel’s Vermont rental basement – otherwise known as the Log Cabin Bridal Suite. With a bathroom down the hall – GASP!
