I have to say I'm excited for Real Housewives of New York. It's been awhile, there's new blood, and interesting shakeups. I reserve the right to hate to my little hater heart's content as the season progresses.
Speaking of new blood: meet Kristen Taekman. Kristen loves Elvis, hates being a mother, possibly hates her husband, is justifiably afraid of Ramonja and is prettttttteeeeeeey! She also seems sort of sensible, straight-shooting, and refreshingly sarcastic. So far I like her and I'm trying not to judge her by the company she keeps (ahem – Brandi Glanville!). I reserve the right to hate to my little hater heart's content as the season progresses.
So let's get on with it. First on the agenda: everybody hates Aviva Drescher. I mean, duh. Apparently Meviva's 6,500 meltdowns last season, coupled with her extreme arrogance and her perverted father (who is probably illegal in at least 40 states) won her more enemies than friends. And no one is even bothering to be her frienemy but Heather Thomson.
Heather is throwing a party to show-off her relevance (i.e. that she used to be a big wig at Bad Boy Industries. Holla!) and all the girls will be there which means it's the first time they're coming face-to-face with Aviva since the reunion. Carole Radziwill gnashes her teeth at the thought.
Another drawback to the need for prosthetics is the cost! Aviva, who is very involved in charities to provide prosthetics to those in need, reveals that she's spent over $1 million dollars on her own artificial limbs over the years. Yikes! Good thing Daddy Sleaziest is rich.
Ramona confirms she is moving forward and on the road to rebuilding her life after 25-years of marriage. “Things are what they are… life has a lot of hurdles and bumps. The good news is I feel good about me, myself, and I and who knows where my path will take me.” I think there's probably another skin care line in there somewhere. Ramona Singer Renaissance?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
"I think that Carole’s book is more of a beach read, whereas I think my book can really touch everybody," Aviva shades. "It’s not just for Housewives viewers. I think it can touch everybody because it shows by various examples how you can get through life’s trials and tribulations. Everyone’s touched by anxiety, health issues, addiction, divorce, and marriage – whether it’s your own relationships, your parents’, or whoever else’s – everyone gets touched by these things and I touch on all of them."
Sonja Morgan promises an entire change in dynamic among the ladies. Not only is scouting for men with her new bestie Carole Radziwill, she's also dining with NeNe Leakes to get business advice. Move over toaster ovens, Sonja's moving in a more fashionable direction. She has a lot to dish on, that's for sure!
Which means that Pinot Singer and her turtle-timing crazy is the last original Housewife. This season features plenty of traveling as the ladies celebrate summer in the Hamptons and go on a glamping trip in Montana!
Per the press release: "This season follows the ladies as they mix business with pleasure, party like rock stars, summer in the Hamptons and allow their emotions to get the best of them any chance they get. Old rivalries will be reignited and new ones born, all while emotional twists and turns, surprise romantic encounters, and passionate arguments keep everyone guessing where people’s true loyalties lie."
