It seemed like things were cool between Sonja and Dorinda after that during the season, but off screen there seems to be so much tension and I don’t get why. It might have something to do with Dorinda being close with Luann de Lesseps, but whatever the reason is, Dorinda is sounding off. Apparently she does not like Sonja and never will. Yikes!
Sonja Morgan was a breath of fresh air in the fetid shark tank that was last night’s Real Housewives of New YorkReunion, Part 1. Always kooky, never truly nasty, Sonja seems to bring a certain lightness to the dark pall that’s been cast over this season of RHONY. But that doesn’t mean she’s feeling all sunshine and rainbows about the way things went down.
In her blog, Sonja specifically calls out Dorinda Medley for cutting her out of the Berkshires trip from hell, and for her hypocritical ways (as Sonja sees it). “After seeing the dry cleaner party that went off the rails bad from soup to nuts again during the reunion, I really have to ask once again: Dorinda was protecting me from what in the Berkshires? The same drama I have been dealing with since way before her? She was not protecting me. She was dividing me from my group.”
Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion started with the women tiptoeing around each other, gently nudging at each other’s ankles like cats giving ‘love bites,’ to see how you’ll react to their brand of toxic care. In reality, the women were trying not to jump the gun by getting nasty first, save to see what the other girl possibly had up her skirt.
Someone could have an apple in their mouth, or they could have one hidden in their hand waiting to be thrown, and the whole entire time you could have misunderstood their meaning, their intent, or their entire mythological way of being. Is it evident that I have no idea what I am saying? I must be on the same (alleged) drugs as Dorinda Medley.
Although there have been a lot of tears, a lot of screaming, a lot of accusations, a lot of surprises, and no decent cast trip to speak of (Thanks Bethenny Frankel!), there have also been some fun moments. And a lot of OMG ones!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Reacting to the season finale, Luann takes serious issue with Bethenny’s “terrible” handling of the incriminating information and wonders just what her motives were for sharing with the other women and Bravo cameras before ever approaching Luann. Fair questions, indeed, which Luann promises are brought up during the upcoming reunion.
With the season finale of Real Housewives Of New York done we have only the reunion to look forward to. At the center of all the drama is Bethenny Frankel, who concedes she was in “a lot of arguments this season.” But, Bethenny justifies her behaviors by blaming her co-stars who not only try to hide their lives from cameras, but who have come for the Skinnygirl empire!
“You come for me, you’re gonna get the wrath,” Bethenny shrugs. “And that’s what happened this season.”
Luann explains that she’s forgiving Tom D’Agostino’s indiscretion because she loves him. And then lays the blame on her co-stars. Yes, we’re confused, too. Luann writes, “If you can’t forgive someone you love, than who can you forgive? I was very hurt when Bethenny shared with me, after showing the other girls, the photo of Tom at the Regency. It took me some time to pull myself together after the initial shock. My gut reaction was to think about how this looked to my friends and family, and it wasn’t until I had time to think that I began to understand what I was feeling.”
