This Real Housewives of New York season has been pretty lackluster so far, but Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel’s argument in the Berkshires amped up the excitement. Ramona really took things to another level with her outburst of insults. Later she pulled a #TotalHousewivesMove and claimed that she “didn’t remember” whatever she said to Bethenny. Right. As if any of us believe that.
Now that some time has passed, the episode has aired, and people are hating on Ramona, she is defending herself. Not only that, but she’s addressing the destruction she (allegedly) left behind at Dorinda Medley‘s Berkshires house.
This breakup between Jules Wainstein and Michael Wainstein keeps getting messier and messier. And the divorce issues aren’t just between the two of them. Unfortunately, the dramatics are affecting their two young children. And Michael’s refusal to pay $135,000 in child support could land him in jail.
This whole time, Michael has claimed that he doesn’t have the money to pay for support and that the requested dollar amount is unrealistic, but now he’s spending a lot of money on trips and nights out…. thanks to his parents footing the bill.
I’m hoping the rest of the season focuses more on Ramona’s craziness and less on Tom. Don’t get me wrong, I think last season was one of the best (if not the best), but that’s because Tom was constantly doing something new and scandalous. Now people are just harping on the old incidents and I’m done with it. If Tom does something new, then I’m all for talking about it, but if Luann does not care about Tom‘s previous antics, then neither do I and I’m so done listening to the same thing over and over again.
Ramona began by recounting the incident, and the emotions that led up to it. She explains, “I just lost it on her. I don’t even remember half the things I said. I had to wait to watch it to see. I was walking on eggshells. She wasn’t giving me an inch for months, so I was hoping at the Berkshires we could have some closure. And yeah, I was sh*t ass nervous! I was drinking all day long. Every time I’ve been around Bethenny, it’s nervous energy. I’m not really acting like myself.”
I have no idea who was asking for this, but Jill Zarin returned to Real Housewives of New York last night because she is thirsting for relevancy such close friends with Luann de Lesseps. I’m sure she was hoping for a big comeback, but the OG cast member truly underwhelmed. The only major soundbite she provided was her belief that Ramona Singer is “unhappy.”
I’m not sure what Jill would know about anyone on this show since she isn’t really friends with them, but she had no issue psychoanalyzing her frienemy. Now she is explaining the comment that she solely made for attention and by “explaining,” I mean she’s backtracking from her own words and sucking up to Bethenny Frankel again.
Bethenny does pull a spread eagle while screaming at Ramona though, which sort of feels like a low rent Wonder Woman move gone dangerously awry. And Ramona uncorks the long-buried demons of Scary Island as she eviscerates Bethenny like never before. Her motto last night: When they go low, I go Pinot! In essence, the drama this week is served upside down, with a twist of crazy. Just the way the Housewives like it.
In her latest Bravo entry, Dorinda Medley explains how awkward things are getting when it comes to the ladies obsessing over Luann de Lesseps‘ upcoming nuptials to Tom D’Agostino on Real Housewives of New York. She thinks it’s time for the women to drop the nonsense and let Lu do whatever she’s going to do.
Dorinda shares why she agreed to talk to Lu on their behalf, “While we’re waiting for Lu, the topic of her relationship with Tom is brought up again! I want to address this once and for all: I always said if there is something you know or want to say about Lu and Tom, come to me, and boy, the girls did. I’ll keep my word, sit down Lu as soon as she arrives, and give her the heads up, but the whole thing makes me incredibly uncomfortable, and it is becoming weird.”
As cool as I think it is to be a Real Housewife, I feel like it has to be a pretty stressful gig as well- especially for a first-timer like Tinsley Mortimer. I like Tinsley so far, but I feel like she’s in a little bit over her head with all the outrageous personalities on Real Housewives of New York. So I don’t blame her for jetting off to Mexico while this current season is airing.
I, too, would need a break from reliving the drama watching the episodes and scrolling through social media commentary. With that said, it seems like Tinsley’s Mexican getaway looks like it was just what she needed at this point.
