It’s hard for me to remember Real Housewives of New York before Dorinda Medley joined the cast and I never want to go back to that era. She manages to keep it real, deliver hilarious one-liners, and check anyone who goes against her – all while managing to be extremely lovable.
Dorinda is someone who has an opinion on everything and everyone and this even includes reality stars who are on other Bravo shows. I have no idea how Dorinda wasn’t a Real Housewife sooner, but I (naively) hope she stays on this show forever, especially since she and Sonja Morgan seem to be cool again.
Tinsley was a delight, but I was really anticipating Andy Cohenasking a bunch of questions about living with Sonja Morgan and her brown ice. But that did not happen. Weirdly enough, there were zero Sonja-related questions, and I learned pretty much nothing about Tinsley. It was a forgettable episode in all honesty, but I watched so you don’t have to. I’ll share the (very) few interesting parts.
Dorinda is throwing a charity event for Beauty for Freedom, so she enlists Bethenny’s help – or at least, her commentary – in the effort. They meet out shopping, where Bethenny is more concerned with the “gigantic apartment” in SoHo she’s just purchased, which is 2,000 square feet larger than her current pad. She’s good at flipping properties, she says. And she’d like you to watch her real estate spinoff, please. She’s not good at forgiving Ramona, however, and has no plans of doing so. Though she does vow to be cordial when they’re forced together at social functions.
How could a person be “surprised” that a conversation she had with a Real Housewives cast member while the show was filming would actually get aired in an episode? In all honesty, that’s just ridiculous, but a woman named Barbara Kavovit is claiming just that. She even tried to have a judge block a Real Housewives of New York episode from airing the “private” conversation. (Tonight’s episode)
Sorry, girl. There’s no such thing as privacy when it comes to reality television. Plus this attempt to prevent the episode from airing has just increased the hype around it. In short, this woman is way out of bounds and her plan completely backfired.
Good lord – Ramona was SO clueless in the latest episode of Real Housewives Of New York that even I’m shocked. Ramona begged Luann for invite to the wedding, just so she could turn her down? She actually told people this! Yet she’s still upset that Luann decided “no way” on inviting her?
In addition to landing a real estate spinoff on Bravo with friend and Million Dollar Listing NY star Fredrik Eklund, Bethenny will now be investing in – or trampling on – the dreams of would be entrepreneurs far and wide! In addition to Shark Tank’s standard panel, Bethenny will guest star when only four of the six “sharks” are present.
Dorinda shares, “I was overwhelmed and deeply touched by Hannah’s speech. You only saw a small part of it but it was incredible and heartfelt. I always knew that Richard and Hannah had a special relationship but I do not think I understood how strong their bond was and how his passing affected her in so many ways. I feel this was a watershed moment for Hannah – a hard, difficult moment.”
If you watch Real Housewives of New York – which I assume you do, since you’re reading this – you are a well-aware that Ramona Singer never holds back when it comes to sharing her opinions. She has been a cast member on the show since the very beginning and it is for good reason. Love her or hate her, she always provides solid material.
After spending Season 8 as the self-appointed peacemaker, Ramona is back in the thick of the drama this year and she’s ready to take on Bethenny Frankel – which is a tough task for any human being to take on. Ramona isn’t backing down though. And it looks like there’s another explosive season ahead.
