Last night our ladies of the Empire State were finally back where they belonged – in Manhattan! Despite the calming days in Montana, a key Real Housewives of New York friendship is seeming to detonate!
Much like Survivor, these ladies are stranded on an island and forced into alliances. But Sonja Morgan is switching up the game. While interviewing a new intern in her backyard (which we so do not care about in the least), she’s wearing a fabulous military-inspired dress and preparing for friendship warfare. Into the garden wanders Aviva Drescher. Long time no see – and not missed!
Sonja immediately lobs a grenade – the entire trip all the girls were talking about Aviva (They were?) – but worst of all was Ramona Singer who accused Aviva of lying about asthma because she is afraid to travel without Reid.
I don’t know about y’all, but I am still in awe of the fact that Vicki Gunvalson was the voice of reason on Monday’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County. Next week is sure to be a doozie, right? While it was equal parts awkward and painful to watch the scenes with Shannon Beador and husband David as he vocalized with brutal honesty how hard their marriage is, it was actually pretty real for Bravo reality. At least Shannon has learned to be weary of Tamra Judge and her dealings with Heather Dubrow.
Of this week’s show, Shannon starts, “Aloha from Hawaii! I am so happy that you finally get to see what is the beginning of a turning point in my marriage! What starts out to be a tough episode ends with hope for healing in my marriage and I am truly grateful for that!”
Shannon writes, “I probably had one of the most emotional weeks of my life after David sent me the infamous email. Typically I am a pretty strong and secure person, but you can see that I have become insecure, especially about my marriage. Brooks had some great advice at dinner by saying to forget the past because I have to focus on my future and my marriage,” adding, “Going dancing at Andeles was exactly the right prescription for David and I. As much as I love for David to be ‘fun David,’ David also loves it when I am fun. I can be quite crazy and have danced on my fair share of stages and tables when I have been out with David or friends. I’m glad you get to see that. What I am not so proud of, however, are my not-so-pretty dance moves. Yikes!” Yikes is right.
Sonja Morgan wants everyone to know that the former Mrs. Morgan is still rolling in the dough, despite also rolling in the deep – deep debt that is!
She also accuses her Real Housewives of New York co-stars of “exploiting” her financial woes for a storyline and making things appear far graver than they are.
Are we sure about that? Because Sonja’s situation appears pretty grim based on reports – she owes $7 million dollars in a movie deal gone bust and her creditors accused her of hiding assets and stalling last year. And this year her St. Tropez home was sold by bankruptcy trustees after Sonja was dragging her feet in liquidating it herself. Still Sonja maintains that her finances are fine – just undergoing a bit of rearranging!
“Broke as a joke?! I am in a Chapter 11 reorganization, I am not in a Chapter 7 which is a liquidation,” Sonja insists. “To say I am broke while I am working and my daughter [Quincy, 13] is thriving under such immense pressure is unfair.”
Not only does the former Teen Mom star believe her erotic trilogy will give Fifty Shades of Greya run for its money, but she also thinks it will make a difference in the world. Because, of course! Honestly I am shocked Farrah has not won a Pulitzer Prize yet. I’m sure she is too!
That’s 7 1/2 already – I mean, Kim? Seriously? Let’s just give her a half.
Now rumor has it that Lisa Rinna has joined the cast as well. Reportedly, ABC has approached Lisa about The View, but she couldn’t resist Bravo‘s charm. Or something. Around this time last year Lisa stated that she wouldn’t ever join Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star is scheduled to receive his sentence after pleading guilty to several counts of financial fraud – and apparently that’s not the only bad news! A property Apollo purchased in Atlanta sold in a foreclosure auction.
If you’re going Huh? – you’re not alone! It seems like Apollo owned a mystery property – once which we did not live in with Phaedra Parks and their two sons.
