NeNe Leakes‘s dream has become a reality – she’s ditching her role as a Real Housewife for network TV! The Very Rich Bitch has been dropping hints that her new career move is a major step up – and that definitely seems to be the case!
Another red flag was that none of NeNe’s fellow Housewives spoke out on her leaving – not even a certain Miss WHO-S-A, yet Andy Cohen immediately tweeted about it. Something he hasn’t done in the past when a Housewife leaves or is fired.
“Well this episode was fun,” admits Bethenny. “This is pure comedy to me. Ramona aka ‘the apologizer’ is some piece of work…I really do feel her pain in her divorce. How can I comment on a life with someone spanning a quarter of a century? I cannot really judge. They say it is bad luck to wear someone else’s shoes. It is most definitely bad form to really understand unless you have walked in them, which I haven’t.”
Howard Stern had Brandi Glanville on this morning and it was a doozy of an interview that ping ponged all over the place! She talked about everything from leaving The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, her salary amounts, her legal woes, her private parts and so, so much more!
Howard opens up by revealing that it’s the only show in the franchise that he watches and that without Brandi it won’t be as interesting or fun to watch. Brandi admits that she’s the a***ole of the show and that she “worries about the show” if there’s no drama. She says she did it for the sake of the show.
Shannon reminded us that we only see a snippet of what is filmed and filled us in on what wasn’t shown. “We all had a fun day together in Napa and everyone was getting along. On the drive to the Bello’s beautiful home, Meghan and Jim brought up the charity party they were hosting the following week,” she shared. “They both asked me questions about an event I hosted for the same charity some months prior. I answered the questions. I gave them suggestions. It was a given in the conversation that everyone on the bus would be attending the party. In addition, I had received a “Save the Date” email for the charity event.”
When Snapped meets Real Housewives Of New York insanity (and hilarity) ensue. In what has become my favorite episode like ever, last night was the perfect genesis of drama (and melodrama) meets fun and friendship. Keep it comin’ Bravo.
The ladies are all Scary Island 2.0, but this time it’s Sonja Morgan having a total break from reality (gummy bears optional). After Sonja and Bethenny Frankel went head-to-head over whose head was more screwed up, the ladies chowed some lobster and went to bed. Drama makes a mama cranky and sleepy. Rather, it makes most people cranky and sleepy – it gives Bethenny and Ramona Singer a crackling energy.
They stay up discussing the Sonja-sodes (the Sonja Episodes) and Ramona confesses to being worried about her bestie. Both agree Sonja is turning to alcohol to cope with loneliness – something ironically they can relate to. This spirals into a truly touching conversation where Ramona opens up to Bethenny about her divorce from Mario.
If last night’s Secrets and Wives revealed anything, it’s that the men in this circle are bloody awful. And the women who love them appear clueless. But when a Fire Island trip brings the women together during which tempers flare, these ladies show how to get over a reality TV fight in 3.5 seconds, which is more than I can say for the Real Housewives of any city on the planet.
We pick up at Cori Goldfarb’s party, where Susan Doneson’s husband Jonathan is making an absolute drunken fool of himself, verbally abusing his hostess with such gems as “Shut the f*k up!” Cori breaks down in tears when Susan is unable to control her attack dog man. While an embarrassed Susan tries to do damage control with the group, Jonathan corners Cori in the kitchen to demand that she “not be upset.” That’s as much of an apology as she’s going to get out of this scumbag for now, I guess. On the ride home, Susan tries to explain how to act like a human to Jonathan while he promptly falls asleep in the cab.
