Real Housewives Of New York Season 7 Premiere Drama And Ratings! Plus, Sonja Morgan Confirms Patti Stanger’s Story About Mario Cheating On Ramona!

What went down at the Real Housewives Of New York premiere party last week? Why drama with Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan, of course, who happen to also being having friction with each other! 

Last Tuesday the ladies of RHONY celebrated the premiere of season 7 with a bash at OA Bar & Grill in Tribeca. And they had reason to celebrate: Zap2It reveals that ratings for this season are already great! Revamped RHONY scored 2.2 million viewers, which is double-digit growth from the season 6 premiere, and combined with part 2 of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills reunion, earned Bravo its best Tuesday night of 2015.

Watch What Happens Live - Season 12

Adam Carolla‘s wife Lynette was the most recent guest on Brandi Glanville‘s Unfiltered podcast. The long-time acquaintances (and fellow podcasters) talked the good and bad of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, the reunion, season finale, and the Amsterdam trip, plus behind-the-scenes casting details, and vented about Brandi’s hypocritical co-stars and online “bullies.” They also chatted Celebrity Apprentice, which Adam also participated in. Brandi weighed in on how reality TV affects marriages, and the ladies gabbed about dating JR and divorce!

Immediately they start discussing the the season finale partyLynette is unequivocally Team Brandi and was a fan from day 1. Lynette believes Brandi was “thrown under the bus” by Lisa Rinna during the whole Kim Richards needs an intervention conversation. “I never would have said it,” Brandi insists, blaming Rinna for twisting her words. “It’s like, that’s not what I said, you said it first! They even played it over [on the finale] but it’s like it never happened!”

Haley Huelsman, Cathy Nesbitt-Smity, & Abby Lee Miller Dance Moms Feud

Those of you familiar with Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition may remember the name Haley Huelsman. The 13-year-old appeared in the second season of Abby Lee Miller‘s competition spinoff, which segued into Haley’s appearances on Dance Moms, and included erupting into a feud with Abby herself! Oh, Abby feuding with a teenager – is this even news at this point? Or is this like a dance world rite of passage?

Haley’s mom Melanie is speaking out about the drama with Abby and why Haley ultimately decided to join Cathy Nesbitt-Stein‘s Candy Apples. Interestingly Melanie shares that Cathy, Abby’s notorious rival and Dance Moms chief villainous (other than the moms of course), is very different off-camera!

southern charm craig

A dear, dear lifelong friend (transplanted to Boston but addicted to seeing her state featured on Southern Charm) texted me a “Which Southern Charm Gentleman is Your Soul Mate” (or something to that effect) quiz, stating, “I’ll tell you mine, but ONLY after you tell me yours.” I got Shepard “Shep” Rose (natch), and she hesitantly admitted that her match was Whitney Sudler-Smith’s divinely devilish mother. She lamented, “I think it’s slightly embarrassing that an opinionated lady who loves her medicine is my soul mate. What does that say about me?!?” Um, I’d say it just confirms how amazing my friend is…had I known Ms. Pat was an option, I may have swayed my responses! That said, last night’s episode proves that Whitney and Patricia are just fine playing the villainous upper echelon who take pleasure in looking down (way down!) on their co-stars. She’s like the love child of Julia Sugarbaker and Regina George with her flawless style, biting observations, and ultimate Mean Girl exclusion. 

The show begins with Patricia summoning her butler (the newbie Mr. Belvedere has been busy polishing the silver…I’m glad to see he got the job!) to request glue sticks on his next run to the Publix. She’s compiling scrapbooks for her son as practice for a wedding photo album, but you won’t find these leather, gold-embossed babies on Pinterest, that’s for sure. Patricia opines about Whitney’s young, European reality star girlfriend and their foray into foreign tabloids as she dreams of a couture Valentino for their ceremony. Whitney arrives to complain about the Sandy Duncan from hell who Thomas Ravenel has enlisted to run his campaign. She doesn’t like the Raise the Roof ad, and Patricia is confused by this serf’s taste in low-budget political propaganda. Pat found her son’s vision of a dancing T-Rav to be “brilliant.” The duo laughs at the thought that any ad or manager could get Thomas a seat in the US Senate, as Whitney recaps his fundraiser at Bowen’s Island (Patricia briefly turns into Cher Horowitz…”as if” she’d attend any event off the peninsula!). He relays Kathryn Dennis’ bunny boiler meltdown when she felt condescended to by Whitney. Patricia poo poos the grammar and turns the attention to her diamond studded flats.

lea black

This former Real Housewife has been hard at work! Lea Black’s novel, Red Carpets & White Lies, parallels her own life and is a behind-the-scenes exposé of the glitzy Miami social scene! 

Red Carpets & White Lies, the first of the former Real Housewives Of Miami star’s planned trilogy, tells the story of Leigh White, a Miami-socialite, who is known for her fabulous charity balls, which she plans as she navigates drama with friends and pseudo-friends, and Lea’s book gives us all a glimpse at the sometimes very scandalous world of “Miami’s rich and shameless!”

Bethenny Frankel

I am exhausted just thinking about all the places Bethenny Frankel has been the past few weeks to promote her new relationship advice book and her return to Real Housewives of New York. I couldn’t do it. I just don’t like people that much. #imkidding #umthatsalie #imnotkidding

In a recent interview with All Things Real Housewives, Bethenny dished on her co-stars and shared her thoughts on how Real Housewives of New York has changed since season 3. “I think it had changed in that it was contrived, in my opinion, because it had been on for so long that people who were new would know what to expect and think that’s how to manufacture drama,” she surmised.

Bethenny continued, “Coming back this season felt more like what it used to be like. Not contrived, it felt… it took a minute, I’ll be honest… but I feel like the tone was set to just be real and not be contrived and manufactured. You don’t need to do that, you can be interesting enough.”
