By the end of last season, I was ready to be done and over with watching this show – all that dark and angry family drama just went on for too too long and with very little light and humor mixed in. That said, I am hoping that this season will be a little better. I know it's going to be serious with Teresa and Joe'sfraud case front and center and of course the typical friendship drama, but I'm still crossing my fingers for some humor and lighthearted moments this time. And these newbies will hopefully breathe some new life in!
Updated: Caroline Manzo also confirmed that she is officially not returning to the show. "Thanks 4 all the love today, I decided 2 leave #RHONJ but I'll be back this fall on @bravotv with Manzo'd With Children! Love you guys!"
Was anyone else confused by Ramona Singer'sbehavior last night on the Real Housewives of New York City? First she gives Kristen Taekman a half-ass apology for throwing a wine glass at her face. Then the next morning she is caught packing by Carole Radziwill, right after she calls her friend to come and get her in the Berkshires. Then on a hike through the woods, she is so traumatized over some leaves and fallen trees that she has to leave the Berkshires immediately, without even saying good-bye to her bestie, Sonja Morgan.
After all these years on camera did she not think that we could all see her calling her friend to come and get her long before her traumatizing hike? I have long since given up on trying to explain Ramona Singer and her bad behavior. But in her latest Bravo blog, she tries to justify her actions….
Hey guys – Kim Kardashian needs some superficial attention over her appearance again! What would this woman do without social media – I am frightened just imagining it!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star boasted that Kanye West gifted her with a giant wall of now-wilting flowers for her first Mother's Day, and since Kim never wants to let an opportunity to self-promote go to waste, she staged a so-called impromptu photoshoot in a see-thru white dress (negligee?) in front of the giant floral obstruction!
This season there will of course be tons of focus on Teresa and Joe Giudice's impending indictment for fraud as the couple pretends to be attempts to prove they are innocent. Dina returns to be a shoulder for Teresa to cry on, but also struggles with her own divorce from husband Tommy.
Melissa and Poison will attempt to embark upon yet another career to stave off their own bankruptcy in the sanitation business as Melissa continues to pursue her passion for auto-tune singing. Also, Melissa's friend from the past, and new Housewife Amber, joins the cast to spread more Melissa rumors. Cause we haven't had this storyline for the past three seasons. YAWN!
New Housewives Nicole andTeresa are twins with an over-the-top Jersey style. And that includes their tempers! Bravo describes the season as shocking and says, "The six wives begin to form a strong bond, but when shocking rumors of infidelity and backstabbing surface, it threatens to tear their friendships to pieces."
Last night the fallout in the Berkshires continued! One might think if you, you know accidentally had a "knee jerk" reaction and threw a glass object at someone's face thus cutting them in the process, one might feel compelled to apologize. You know, sincerely.
One might assume since you just injured someone over the fact that they got your hair wet – hair that didn't look good to begin with and looked no worse after the horrific splashing that caused you to lash out and so aggressively you flung not only a glass object, but a boat oar at their face – you would feel some modicum of remorse. But alas, I presume none of us are Ramona Singer. So, yeah – logic does not apply. So that's what happened on last night's Real Housewives of New York.
After Ramona caused all this damage she faked a panic attack, lied, and got the hell out of dodge. You know what the most hysterical part in all of this is – Ramona is still trying to convince people she's classy. Oh girl… I think there's a whole chapter in Class With The Countess dedicated to you and explaining what it is you do that's not classy.
Not in attendance were several of Lisa's RHOBH co-stars, like Brandi Glanville, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards and Yolanda Foster.
Reality Tea was invited to the opening party, but things have been a little too hectic around here, so we weren't able to peel ourselves away from the site and attend. BUT we do have the red carpet photos for you and that's the most important part!
All of the Real Housewives of Orange County got to meet Lizzie Rovsek on Monday night's episode, and I don't think anyone was surprised at how she was welcomed into the group by Vicki Gunvalson, were they? There's nothing more attractive than a super catty, middle-aged loudmouth acting like the mean head cheerleader in an 80's romcom, is there? Of course, Vicki was just marking her territory as far as Tamra Judge is concerned, and something tells me (duh, the previews!) that Lizzie won't be too sad to cut ties with her new neighbor.
Admitting she doesn't have much to say in her Bravo blog, Lizzie begins, "I started writing this blog several different ways until I realized that I don't really have much to say or know what to say regarding this episode. Honestly, I didn't even know what to think after I watched it. I really didn't think Vicki would insult almost everything about me as she did. There are so many things to say and nothing to say at the same time," adding, "I don't pick people apart for the way they look or put down things that people have worked for in their life. Vicki says that it takes 'no skill' to be in a beauty pageant…Well, I tell you one thing it gives young women and that is confidence. And thank goodness I have some so I could handle the barrage of insults that came my way tonight."
All Things Real Housewives has recapped the interview in case you missed it. Of the show itself, Lisa recalls, “I do remember saying to [Bravo’s producers] that I wanted to leave the show with the same integrity I came in with. I just don’t want any BS editing. I’m no angel, I do make a few snarky comments and have a laugh. It is a television show. But I’m not in this business or on this show to put down my cast mates or get into a bitchfest, that’s not who I am, and I think if that day comes then I should leave."
