Please tell me the finale is not about Tom! It’s about Tom. And what a bittersweet ending The Real Housewives Of New York is giving us this season. Not even twenty-four hours after the ladies’ awesomely insane Mexico trip aired, Luann de Lesseps (yes, we’re back to the old name) announced she’d filed for divorce from Tom D’Agostino, who she’s spent the last eighteen episodes defending as the man who would make all of her dreams come true. In the end, poor Luann traded Countess for Wife, and all she had to show for it was Eggs a la Francaise on her face. But I’m here for single Lu ALL day, EVERY day. So perhaps, eighty-sixing Tom right smack on the heels of Luann totally rocking that Mexico vaycay is perfect timing after all. And given Tom’s (unsurprising) shady behavior last night, Luann’s move to kick his sorry, lying, cheating, de-mic’d a$$ to the curb deserves an extra champagne toast. Hurrah!!!
The drama began after their FOUR-YEAR divorce finally wrapped up. Bethenny reported that Jason was consistently sending her a barrage of nasty texts, FaceTime calls and emails. After Jason publicly confronted her, the Real Housewives Of New York star called the police and had him arrested for stalking and harassment. Further charges followed when he still didn’t stop.
Yesterday Jason was back in court where he decided against accepting a proposed plea deal. Remember when we thought Jason was the normal one? Now it’s more of a case two wrongs don’t make a skinnygirl right!
Bethenny Frankel showed a little leg and a healthy glow as she attended the Women’s Health and FEED’s 6th Annual Party Under the Stars at Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club this weekend. Is it just us or is Bethenny looking really great lately? I don’t know if it’s better stress management, a new facialist, a new makeup artist or what but she looks good!
Despite their misgivings about Tom – and in some cases, their personal dating histories with him – Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley reached out on social media and news outlets to offer empathy and support. Their statements, much like their TV personalities, varied widely.
Much like the best house party you ever attended freshmen year, last night’s Real Housewives Of New York came replete with drunken makeout sessions, naked crying in the pool, and knifings. Yes – it was epic. And I may be fangirling out so hard that I have blinders on, but I’ll say it again: This Mexico trip is serving up some of the best Housewives moments in recent memory. It’s a rare gift, and we totally deserve it after suffering through the Tom and Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] wedding snooze fest for eight straight episodes!
We pick up with Sonja Morgan “therapizing” Ramona Singer by the pool. She wants Ramona to admit she’s not happy. Why? Because she’s not getting banged by Mario every nightbut some other chick is. Fresh off her 10 minute month sobriety, Sonja is feeling loose on tequila and truth. Bethenny Frankel thinks Sonja needs to back the eff off though, shockingly defending Ramona against Sonja’s drunken tirade. Ramona screams that she’s happy, but admits she misses having a man.
Believe it or not, every Real Housewives of New York news story doesn’t automatically have to be about drama or alleged adultery. Sometimes light and fluffy can be just as entertaining- not always, but here and there it is true. While the fandom is still watching this infamous Mexico trip play out, Bethenny Frankel has revealed her favorite person in the cast to travel with.
Surprisingly enough, it’s actually not her BFF Carole Radziwill. Speaking of Carole, she is actually preparing to run the New York City Marathon for a great cause.
