As a writer you are challenged to encapsulate events and people in an exciting or innovative way. As a recapper you are challenged to reiterate exciting and crazy things that have already happened in a funny and innovative way. It’s a tough job.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York there were royal wars and pinot races. And nobody won at the end of an evening serenaded by the worst music I’ve ever heard on Housewives of anywhere – and that is really saying something. So Mazel, Cara Quici.
Things begin innocently enough with a bidet, some croquet, and champagne. Sonja Morgan, washing off the sins of her hangover, sticks her face in a bidet filled with ice. She does know what part of the anatomy a bidet is really for, correct?
Didn’t anyone ever tell Heather you can’t reason with crazy?
On last week’s episode, Aviva Drescher‘s husband Reid – sarcastically, according to Aviva’s twitter – suggested Heather may be “jealous” of Ramona‘s success following her disastrous speaking engagement at the Learning Annex. Well, Ramona definitely didn’t agree with that. Oh, no – Heather isn’t jealous, she’s just insecure.
New job, same problems! I can see that Jill Zarin has definitely turned over a new leaf – and is taking her professionalism to her next gig! On her very first day hosting a segment for GMA spinoff, Good Afternoon American, Jill chose to make it nasty and personal by taking a dig at Ramona Singer.
Now a bigger person than I might tsk tsk and claim Jill is still vengeful over her firing and needs to let it go, but I LOVE the drama and I think it’s hilarious that Jill has not changed one bit. Don’t you ever Jill – we like you just the way you are; crazy, venomous, and a total instigator!
“We’ve always had this kind of awkward relationship, embarrassing relationship, really,” Jill said of her former Real Housewives of New York nemesis. “So I kind of like watching her squirm a little bit this season.”
Things begin with Carole Radziwill (in her nephew’s borrowed Halloween costume), Sonja Morgan (in Indiana Jones’ borrowed hat), and LuAnn (in Princess Diana’s borrowed accent) arriving in London. Heather Thomson and her Yummie Tummie holla-ing team are already there.
Carole is grouchy. And she’ll remind you of it over and over on this trip. Personally, a grouchy and snarky Carole is much more what Bravo was hoping for when they cast her – and she’s a good kind of witty grouchy, not just an out of control bitch.
Both ladies – and their fashionably challenged selves – were spotted at Talent Resources’ Charity Polo Classic. Strangely, Dina Manzo also attended. “Earlier today at a polo match and ran into Dina Manzo,” Ramona tweeted, adding a photo of the two.
In other news, Ramona’s feud with Jill Zarin continues. Ramona is still upset about comments Jill made last season hinting that Mario may be unfaithful! Ramona claims the two exchanged words off camera over the incident, but she’s still not over it – despite Jill’s apology!
Bravo switched up this season of the Real Housewives of New York, firing half of the cast. An insider close to the series thinks that perhaps those changes could continue if fans aren’t on board with the newest additions to the show. While an insider close to the NYDailyNews.com reveals that, for now, the franchise is seemingly safe, it reminds viewers that the cast is “constantly evolving.” The source continues, saying that the show itself is “a formula.” Perhaps Aviva Drescher should step up her game!
A Bravo source claims “it is much too early to even think about next season,” while touting that the network is “thrilled with the cast, and this Monday’s episode is high drama.”
