Bethenny breaks down her thoughts on this week’s episode, which she says was certainly easier to live through than last. “Well, this week was a little lighter,” she comments. “If I can host a party where Dorinda Medley experiences ‘just the tip’ and Carole Radziwill swigs from a luge, then my holiday work is done.” Bethenny’s marketing and sales work is done too, I assume, as that holiday party obviously was one giant Skinnygirl commercial.
To be honest, I did not want Real Housewives of Potomacto come back for a second season. The first season was just a bunch of blah episodes with story lines I could not get invested in. The second season started out the same way, but things are heating up and they have not even filmed the reunion episodes yet.
Mainly, I want to see what happens with Karen Huger. She’s been on the sideline so far, commenting and shading other people’s situations, but she was a major part of the trailer for the season. It looks like she has some sort of shady financial/real estate situation and I am excited to see how that all unfolds. The story line is a total #HousewifeMove if I’ve ever seen one, but there’s just always something intriguing about people who seem to be deceptive about their finances and have the nerve to go on reality television.
Out of all the Real Housewives, I never expected Kenya Moore to be the one to have a secret wedding. Who even knew that she had a boyfriend? This just seems so very random- especially since she didn’t have the wedding as a story line for Real Housewives of Atlanta. That shocked me way more than the random wedding did.
At this point, Kenya hasn’t even revealed the name of her husband. I get keeping a boyfriend private, but it does seem a little odd to marry someone and keep his name hidden. Then again, I’m not a reality star so I really don’t know how this life works.
Tamra Judge has made no secret about being abandoned by her eldest daughter Sidney. Tamra has consistently blamed her spiteful ex-husband Simon Barney for the estrangement. However, Tamra finally, happily reunited with her daughter to attend Sidney’s high school graduation. Then she ran straight to social media to post about it, which is part of what drew Tamra and Sidney apart to begin with.
Describing Luann as “Teflon,” Jill explains that the Countess has craftily managed to survive nine seasons on this cutthroat show by consistently shifting frienemies when the time is right and only having allegiance to herself. We do know how Luann loves herself and all.
Another week, another Jill Zarin resurgence on Bravo. This woman is seriously everywhere all of a sudden. The thirst is real, but it’s certainly entertaining. From showing up on Real Housewives of New York (again) to appearing on Watch What Happens Live, the fandom got a double dose of Jill last night.
Yes, Luann de Lesseps was there too, but she didn’t say anything new. We get it: she loves Tom D’Agostino, they’re so happy, she found her soulmate, they’ve been through so much. It’s come to a point where I feel like I could do an interview on Luann’s behalf and answer all of the questions using the same phrases that she would. Obviously, that’s a sad thing for me. Clearly I read and watch way too much RHONY content, but whatever. You’re reading this, so on some level you must get me.
But first we begin at Briana Renee and Matt Ericson [Grundhoffer’s] house, where they’re fretting over baby Maverick’s sleep issues. He doesn’t have sleep apnea, but he does need extra oxygen at night – which is tough to do with a clunky mask. Luckily, Briana’s anxiety has lessened. But now she feels bullied by the girls, who almost all piled on her about her – um – funky smell. (Gah! Again, are we really witnessing this nightmare on TV?!?!) Briana says that Terra is the main bully, but the others aren’t far behind. Only Jasmine Sorge has her back. Matt flexes his douchiness muscles, begging Briana to let him “unleash” on them. “Take the handcuffs off me and let me tell them how it is!” he demands. Briana dumbly shrugs, secretly loving the idea of a Big Matt Attack.
