Just when we thought Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] had gone down the I’m married! rabbit hole for good, she’s emerged on this Mexico trip as the MVP of the group! Despite her drunken tumbles into bushes and down ledges, The Real Housewives Of New York star says she thoroughly enjoyed Bethenny Frankel’s tequila-inspired vacation, including the tour that took the ladies on a day-long boozy adventure.

Luann wasn’t any worse for the wear when she woke up the morning after her falls. She jokes, “It takes more than a little hangover to stop me from working out on a beautiful Mexican morning! In fact, yoga with Dorinda [Medley] was just what the doctor ordered after falling into a bush… and emerging without a scratch! When Bethenny offered a surfing lesson to us, I figured, why not? I’m always up for anything, and I felt so much better after being in the ocean. They say Vitamin Sea is the best medicine, and I agree. Sometimes you just have to surf it off.”

Just in case The Real Housewives Of New York didn’t have enough tequila during the first night of their trip, Bethenny Frankel decides to free them from their resort habitat to drink straight from the agave fields in the town of Tequila itself! It’s like a Housewives birthright trip, wherein they head back to the ultimate power-source of all Bravo drama. Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps], champ that she is, rallies from her multiple falls in time to partake, as does power-napping Dorinda Medley. The only question before Bethenny’s outing is this: Will Ramona Singer be murdered in her sleep by the house staff allowed to go?

The morning after Sonja Morgan and Ramona tore through rooms like Hurricane Crazy, the group awakens to a new day. Dorinda and Luann are practicing yoga on the patio while Carole Radziwill is inside demanding bean-free huevos rancheros. Luann is relieved to be alive, and without a scratch to boot! Tinsley Mortimer is giddy over the enormous bouquet of flowers delivered to her from new boyfriend, Scott. She’ll have to stick a pin in that joy for now, though, because there are fights to be had! Namely, between Ramona and Bethenny.

That last episode of Real Housewives of New York was not a good look for Ramona Singer– and I’m not even making a dig about Ramona’s face after she got a chemical peel or whatever cosmetic procedure she elected to have before going on the cast trip to Mexico. I’m referring to her bratty behavior about the room selection and her typical behavior when it comes to ordering around the hotel staff.

It just was unflattering all around. Surprisingly enough, Ramona is actually owning up to her behavior- well, sort of.

After giving up her room to Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan in Vermont, Dorinda Medley finally put her foot down in Mexico. When The Real Housewives Of New York ladies arrived at their beautiful rental house, Dorinda almost gave in again to the spastic fits of Grabby and Greedy – until Bethenny Frankel practically tasered someone stepped in to break up the madness. In her blog, Dorinda reflects on what she calls “the worst” behavior she’s seen from the likes of Ramona and Sonja.

Dorinda recounts the events leading up to that point, beginning with the car ride: “Well we finally made it to Mexico, and yes, Ramona is with us!…I was personally ready to get in the car, have a quiet ride to the house, have a welcome drink, and go to the beach. But alas, that never happens, does it? The ride involved Sonja going on about a mistaken picture of someone’s private parts sent by mistake, and a game of kill, marry, and, well, you know the rest. As you can see by my actions, I had very little interest in either. By the way, who gets a penis picture by mistake?” Well, Sonja does. That’s who!

Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan racing through rental properties like hellhounds in heat is not a new sight for loyal viewers of The Real Housewives Of New York. For Tinsley Mortimer, however, it was a brand new obnoxious experience! And she’s still a bit shell shocked from it. In her blog, Tinsley calls out Ramona’s enormous sense of entitlement, and her egging-on Sonja to be angry at Tinsley for not handing her room over to them instead of trip organizer, Bethenny Frankel.

First, Tinsley gushes about her new man, Scott, who Carole Radziwill set her up with – and who she’s still seeing! “Having just come off a super fun and spontaneous five-day-long date with Scott, I was feeling super rested and happy and excited for a fun girls’ trip to Mexico. We were having so much fun that first night that Scott decided we should continue the date in Miami where we spent another four amazing days together. Thanks to Carole, this is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me. I can’t believe how lucky I feel to have met Scott!”

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Three Tequila…Floor!

The woman formerly known as Luann de Lesseps has come a long way from the countess we “met” watching Season 1 of Real Housewives of New York. She went from getting offended by Bethenny Frankel not referring to her as a countess in year one, to turning up, hooking up, and randomly getting married. Personally, I love this Luann 2.0 who isn’t afraid to down drinks and party it up.

I also have to declare that Luann D’Agostino falling into that bush during that cast trip to Mexico was hands down the best moment of this season. Sure, that wasn’t hard to do considering that this season is pretty “blah,” but that fall was instantly iconic and Luann is embracing it instead of being embarrassed.

Oh. My. God. Mexico had no idea what was coming! Because when The Real Housewives Of New York decide to invade your country in the name of booze research, you need to erect a wall around them. Last night, Bethenny Frankel’s tequila-inspired adventure sailed right into crazyville, where Ramona Singer (whose face suddenly resembles a grated radish) took room-grabbing to new levels, Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] tumbled drunkenly into bushes and concrete patios, and Tinsley Mortimer accused her benefactress of being a traitor.

We begin with the group arriving in Mexico, where Bethenny already has the sh*ts – or the flu – or spontaneous diarrhea in response to staring at what little skin remains on Ramona’s face (courtesy of a chemical peel). Carole Radziwill is looking forward to Taco Bell and to congratulating herself on her matchmaking skills with Tinsley and Scott. They are an official item! The ladies play “marry, f–k, kill” in the car on the way to their rental, then take a gander at a stray d*ck pic Sonja Morgan received on her phone from a wrong number. If anything, this is an omen of things to come.

RHONY Season 9 Reunion Seating Chart

Well it’s been a roller coaster season of Real Housewives Of New York – a Ramonacoaster season to be exact! Last week the ladies filmed the season 9 reunion which was sure to be as insane as it was vitriolic because in the Big Apple they do everything bigger and um, well, bigger! 

Sonja Morgan dished that after a season of emotional outbursts and shifting loyalties (aka no loyalties) Ramona Singer is in the hottest seat of all. We all know how Ramona likes to keep things hot flashed!

The seating chart reveals that, predictably, Ramona and Bethenny Frankel are on either side of Andy Cohen which means their drama is sure to take center stage – as it has all season.
