Last night the ladies covered what I refer to as administrative details, but Andy Cohen was utterly superfluous as Bethenny Frankel stepped in to truly host the reunion, which is an excellent way to take heat off your own misdeeds. Like when Bethenny repeatedly accused Ramon Singer of being nasty and having a nasty side and saying truly awful things. I was like for every finger Bethenny is pointing at Pinot Pologies of The Ramacrame Delusions of Turtle Time Island, there are four Singer Stingers pointing back at Bethenny. Honestly, is Bethenny cognizant that she is the queen of the cutting and nasty comment? Back to Dr. Amador‘s couch you go! She should just move the good doc into her Skinnygirl subsidized apartment, paint him red, and make him part of the zillions of products she hawks under the guise of healthy living.
Before we dive into part 2 of tonight’s Real Housewives of New York reunion, Sonja Morgan is reflecting on last week’s. Sonja touches on a few of last week’s highlights and lets it be known that she’s sick of her co-stars trying to snuff out her sparkle!
Sonja starts off, “Sue me if I know how to have a good time! I’ve partied with the best of them, and those days I spoke of with Dorinda in the privacy of our hotel suite just don’t exist anymore. After I apologized to Carole I could tell she is still very sensitive about her family. This is why I usually steer clear of the subject around her. I have mentioned to her before that I knew some of her in-laws and some of her friends as people do when connecting. I would never want to offend her.”
The Ashley Madison leak fallout continues on. It’s not just Josh Duggar, government officials, and random civilian husbands getting busted for having accounts with the cheater website. Now it has filtered on down to the Bravolebrities. Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman’s husband Josh Taekman is the latest person to be outed for having an account and making multiple payments to the site.
Earlier today when the news broke, Josh vehemently denied that the account was his own. When the Daily Mail ran the story, showing proof that Josh had over 60 transactions with the affair site, he told them someone else had to be using his information. Josh told them, “I don’t understand. There’s not a shot in hell that I’m a subscriber. I have no knowledge of that this is the first I’ve ever heard of it. This is crazy. I saw it on the TV the other day about the security breach and we were laughing about it. It is what it is but somebody is definitely fraudulently using my name and number.”
Bethenny posted a new photo on Instagram this afternoon, showing off her white crocheted bikini cover up/dress, captioning it “Happy Friday, xo.” In the background of the shot is Bethenny’s bed, where Cookie is hanging out and relaxing. And chilling next to Cookie is a mystery man! His face is obscured by a pillow but he doesn’t look her rumored love interest, Modern Family actor Eric Stonestreet.
Unlike other Real Housewives who need to pop Xanax and bring along a barrel of wine to get through the reunion taping, Kristen Taekman looked forward to the Real Housewives of New York reunion! Kristen shares her thoughts on Part 1 in her new blog, dishing on the Luann/Carole/Adam tension, Bethenny Frankel’s party snub, and so much more!
Kristen starts out, “It’s that time of year again! Reunion. Every ‘Wives’ chance to settle arguments and hash things out once and for all. Unsurprisingly, I dread reunions. For me, some things should just be left in the past. However, this year, I was looking forward to the reunion. This season, friendships were created and broken and there was a ton of unresolved issues leading up to it.”
I’ve made no secret of the fact that I think Carole and Luann bickering over a twenty-something boy (who is likely an opportunist) makes them both fools – particularly because in the process they’ve said some truly hateful things to each other and shown some extremely unsavory sides of themselves. Even worse – they’ve lost a friend! What it is about this Adam I’m not sure, but anyone who conduces you to act that big a fool is probably not worth it!
With that said, Luann is tired of arguing with Carole and claims she would rather invest in positive friendships than non-stop nasty tweeting and snide comments. I’ll believe it when I see it!
Carole, who has taken a hiatus from writing overdue books to focus on Adam – and twitter – explained her feelings over the reunion in her Bravo blog where she discussed Sonja Morgan‘s social gaffe and Luann de Lessep‘s fragmented hypocrisy that undermined their friendship.
Explaining more of what frustrated her regarding Sonja’s comment about partying with John John way back when she was known as Mrs. Morgan, Carole says she never heard Sonja mention this so-called Kennedy friendship. OK – can we all just accept that Sonja probably DID party with Kennedys – she was married to a Morgan for a decade and ran in some uber-ritzy circles, just as Ramona mentioned.
