One thing I’m really enjoying about this season’s Real Housewives Of New York is that all the ladies alternate bringing the drama. They also take turns playing the mediator or the good friend, which makes for a relationship-driven show about real women. People have many sides to their personalities, and don’t always behave one way, good or bad, something Bravo often fails to demonstrate in its Housewives. Ironically, with EIGHT housewives and their personalities to parse out, Bravo has illustrated the humanity of these women better than it has in many seasons and returned RHONY to the show we all once loved.
Bethenny Frankel is hot in the midst of finalizing renovations in her new apartment, which looks almost identical to the one she forfeited to Jason Hoppy – right down to the Skinnygirl red. I guess if it ain’t broke… (which it is broke). Since Bethenny is no longer homeless, she invites Carole Radziwill over to check out the new pad. Bethenny admits she’s using blowjob currency to get everything completed on time and suspects it may be worth it to pay some extra cash and switch to hand jobs instead. Such is life on the mean streets of NY – a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to get a roof over her head and a clean place to not eat.
Well, it’s finale time for the very short season of Bravo’s grown up version of Long Island Princesses: Secrets and Wives. I laughed, I cringed, I nearly called the cops on Jonathan Doneson on behalf of women everywhere. And now, I submit one final recap of the show that everyone loves to hate, knowing there are a few hardy souls out there still watching with me! Here we go.
It’s the day after Sandy and Cori Goldfarb’s 20th wedding anniversary party, and both of them are hungover. They discuss Jonathan’s behavior at the party, which was mildly acceptable for the first time this season. Sandy’s behavior, however, was not. At least in Cori’s eyes. She brings up her irritation with Sandy not making a “loving speech” to her at the party due to his drunken state. Sandy argues that nobody else needs to know their “intimate details,” but Cori argues that it was a moment he could’ve shown appreciation for the wife and mother she’s been, but he didn’t.
After last week’s emotional episode, the ALDC is one week closer to Nationals, and they are potentially down one very talented dancer and one instigating and annoying mom. Last night’s Dance Moms begins with the mothers waiting outside their Los Angeles dance space hoping that Kira will show up with Kalani. Melissa reveals that Kira won’t be allowing Kalani to rejoin the team per a phone conversation they had. Do you think Abby Lee Miller cares? Of course not! The mothers rehash Kira’s initial fight with Abby and concur that it should be Kalani’s decision as to whether she continues to compete with the ALDC.
At pyramid, Abby is still on a high for beating the Candy Apples, now helmed by Jeanette. The team will be going head to head with the Candy Apples again, and Holly wonders if Abby misses Kalani, with Jill adding that her absence creates a void. Nope. Not a bit. Kalani walked out on an amazing opportunity. Next! JoJo is on the bottom of the pyramid for awful feet and her ability to correct them, followed by Nia for being less than mesmerizing. MacKenzie is in the third seat for un-expressive eyes. Maddie is in the second spot to remind her she needs to be knocked down a few pegs…she needs to work harder for that top spot. It’s not a given. Kendall is deservedly at the top of the pyramid, and Jill is practically salivating with glee.
The least annoying Kardashian sister (I realize that’s not saying much!), in my humble opinion, is getting her own show. Khloe recently announced that she’ll be taking prime time television by storm with her new talk show, Kocktails With Khloe. Katchy! The series is slated to hit your small screen late this year on the FYI network. For your information, I have never heard of said network, and I scour my guide channel more than I watch actual television…given this job, you know that has to be A LOT!
Dorinda Medley has had it with balmy beaches, beautiful blue skies, and warm ocean breezes – oh, and shady co-stars, bitchy drama, and hysterical meltdowns over seemingly small things.
Last week the ladies left Turks and Caicos. Sadly the trip ended on a hysterical note after Heather Thomson saw… A MAN. OK, I get it – who wants someone’s unattended one-night stand wandering around your shared beach house, but the reaction was a tad over-the-top. Heather should have reigned that in with some YummieTummie control-top shapers.
Dorinda believes that some of her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars were way too concerned with the “What Ifs…” instead of letting and letting live for the sake of avoiding drama.
A source tells US Weekly that the formerly married couple “saw each other when she was in Vegas and both signed the divorce documents together,” making their split official. Khloe filed for divorce in 2013 after Lamar’s reported struggle with substance abuse and spousal cheating.
Porsha Williams kept her mouth shut most of last season on the Real Housewives of Atlanta when it came to spilling the tea about her allegedly-married-African-prince-boyfriend, denying at times the invisible sugar daddy boyfriend even existed.
But it’s a new day for the Queen of THOT-Land, as Porsha has taken to Instagram over the past weekend to share some, uh, friendly photos of her new man: football player Duke Williams. Above, at the shooting range with Williams, Porsha simply captioned the controversial shot as “#ShootingRange #KUWTW.”
