“So we finally get to meet the new girl—oh wait, I don’t. But before I get there, let me talk about a few other things,” snarks Dorinda in her blog. “Hannah has decided to move out. It took a long time for Hannah and I to heal after Richard’s death. She decided to move back in with me, and I decided to mother her as much as I could during the aftermath of his death. It was the best decision for both of us, but now after five years she has decided it’s time to move out and get her own apartment. I am happy to say it’s in NYC and not too far away.”
Even though Real Housewives of New York’sninth season technically started last week, I feel like nothing happened in that first episode. New girl Tinsley Mortimer didn’t even appear until the second episode, so I just felt like episode one was just a recap of where we left off since the reunion aired. Now it feels like the season is finally under way.
Even though we only got a little glimpse at Tinsley, I like her so far and I’m just waiting for that hair tutorial to go up on her Instagram story. I am a little thrown off by her living with Sonja Morgan, but I would probably do that too if Sonja invited me. At this point, that townhouse is nothing short of notorious. Tinsley opened up about her debut and her first impressions of the cast members.
Well that’s it – another season of Vanderpump Rules done and done! But the third part of the reunion ended with quite a bang when Scheana Marie‘s estranged husband Mike Shay appeared to say everything and nothing at all.
Good lord – the girls on this show are ridiculous! Like Katie Maloney, nothing is ever Scheana’s fault as she just demands, cries, and throws tantrums then blames everyone else. Tom 2 – consider Shay your warning; Robert Valleta – consider Tom 2 your warning.
Before we witness Scheana Marie collapse into a cloud of pressed powder, we have much ground to cover. While Andywasted time last week trying to make Stassi Schroeder‘s brother ‘happen,’ the reunion could have focused on all the drama between James Kennedy and Kristen Doute, or that time Tom 2 almost canceled his wedding while pooping in a wedding gown, as Tom 1 was crying in a Sia costume. Aaaaahhh… good times in New Orleans!
After roaming around the peninsula on the previous episode of Southern Charm, the crew was up to new antic’s on last night’s installment, and it included a cameo by Billy Ray Cyrus. Could this show GET any better (typed in my best Chandler Bing font). After the requisite morning montage, Thomas Ravenel dons his Joker glasses to get down to business as Cameran Eubanks and her pal ChelseaMeissner are working out with a trainer after a boozy night. Cameran needs to counteract her gas station diet, and Chelsea dishes on her slumber party with Shepard “Shep” Rose. Spoiler alert, there was no nudity. Cameran is excited her pal may be on the Soulmate Express with the fratastic bachelor, and she encourages Chelsea to keep playing hard to get (ie, no pants dropping) to pique Shep’s interest. He’s used to girls to giving up the goods and is need of a challenge.
Craig Conover meets Landon Clements at Tavern and Table to sympathize over adulting difficulties when there are happy hours to be had. The two giggle over the pronunciation of charcuterie, making a profession out of philanthropy, and hobnobbing with the richest of the rich. Craig is working on an event for his girlfriend Naomie Olindo’s friend’s charity. It’s focus is disaster relief for orphans in Haiti, and Craig has been tasked with ordering the step and release, um, repeat. Landon and Craig bond over how hard they work and how sucky it is when their friends claim they aren’t working hard enough. Please! These tapas aren’t going to eat themselves. Someone has to do it! You can’t spell fundraiser without FUN after all.
Two weeks ago Luann’s 22-year old daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, was arrested in the Hamptons for a DUI, blowing a .15 on a breathalyzer after being pulled over, then brought into the police station under suspicion of intoxicated driving.
When Karen Huger brought up her conversation with Gizelle Bryant in front of the entire Real Housewives of Potomac cast, it seemed like a textbook case of reality show pot stirring. I’m sure that Karen justifies it as “getting everything out in the open” and some sort of vague sentiment about being a “peacemaker,” but it was shady.
The conversation between Robyn and Karen did make the episode so Gizelle Bryant and Charrisse Jackson-Jordan were going to see it anyway and I understand that it was necessary to push the plot forward on a reality show that could use some excitement, but I’m sure that Robyn could have done without it.
Episode three of Southern Charm, season four has now aired, and some fans are disappointed about the amount of screen time that Kathryn Dennis has gotten so far, and it’s starting to look like a repeat of last season, where the bulk of the cast didn’t film with her. But it’s not just fans of Southern Charm that are wondering what’s up, Kathryn is not pleased either.
Kathryn says she is puzzled as to what she was shown in episode one of Southern Charm walking into take a drug test, and literally, the only words she uttered where “I’m Kathryn Dennis, and I’m here for a drug test.” Then, in episode two, Kathryn is seen dropping by Danni’s house to again, talk about drug tests, and then season three, she is again, stopping into an office, this time to chat about getting back into modeling, only to be asked about whether or not her children want to model.
Tonight we will get a taste of the relationship dynamics between Craig Conover and his girlfriend, Naomie Olindo, when they try working together. Craig attempts to be a grown up and lends a hand with Naomie’s fundraiser. The two have very different approaches when it comes to the details and Craig’s fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants ways are on Naomie’s uber-organized last nerve. Will it cause trouble in their relationship?
