The women on Real Housewives of New York like to keep everything within their clique and this includes their men. I would love it if someone made a meme with a web of all the ladies and the dudes they have married and dated. If that ever happens, there will be a lot of overlap. Ramona Singer knows this firsthand since she just talked about how she dated Luann de Lesseps’sfiance Thomas D’Agostino Jr before he got with the Countess.
This is pretty shocking since Ramona has been pretty critical of Luann’s dating life so I can’t believe that they dated the same person. But anyway, I don’t know what “dating” means anymore. It’s such a vague term. Were they boyfriend and girlfriend? Did they go out on one date? Did they just hook up after some wild nights at Beautique? It’s abundantly unclear. Thankfully, Ramona clarified. Well, at least she did a little bit.
Ramona shows up with two “interns” who are bartenders for the night. She clarifies that she pays her interns but says they don’t get college credit. Sonja’s interns get college credit but aren’t paid (which is very common). So, technically Ramona’s aren’t interns, they’re just employees…
Andy reads Rinna some Tweets from viewers and notes how much they were disliking her on Twitter tonight. One person asked if all this drama stirring was an attempt by Rinna to secure her job next season. She says “absolutely not. I couldn’t care less whether or not I’m there next season. I’m there to do my job.” Andy asks “what’s your job?” Lisa says, “to be authentic and be real and to react to what’s going on in the moment.”
Andy comments that a lot of viewers were shocked at the amount of pink blush LeeAnne had on at the Mad Hatter party, he asks what was up with that. LeeAnne chalks it up to the long day of filming and reapplying. (but doesn’t explain why it’s been that bright in nearly every episode since) I will say that on tonight’s episode of WWHL her makeup is MUCH better.
The first question from a viewer asks why Carole won’t accept Luann’s apology? “She didn’t apologize and this scene was eight months after she said lots of really nasty stuff, crazy misogynistic stuff.” Andy asks Carole if she said nasty stuff, too? “I didn’t. With these women you need evidence, I wish I had brought all of her Tweets and interviews. It’s one thing to say you don’t like my boyfriend or something but she was age-shaming, she was female-bashing. That kind of misogynistic bullshit. You don’t need to hear it from not only a woman, but someone you considered a friend.”
