Tinsley Mortimer began The Real Housewives Of New York as a single gal trying to make a new start from the dust bunnies ofSonja Morgan’s spare room, and she ended it with a new beau and a hefty hotel bill! Now, Tinsley reflects on how far she’s come since cameras started rolling last fall, and how truly appreciative she is of Sonja’s hospitality – even though some of the other woman (and Page Six) say otherwise.
Despite the standard drama of being part of any Housewives enterprise, Tinsley says she enjoyed her time on the show. “Wow! I can’t believe RHONY Season 9 is over. What a rollercoaster! My life was in such a mess when I joined the show, and I think you can see the entire season for me was pretty much a long therapy session. Kindly, I received so much support from so many people that I do feel I can finally put the past behind me, forgive myself for staying in such a destructive relationship, and once again look forward to the future.”
Since Real Housewives Of New York wrapped its dramatic season where Ramona spent plenty of time looking the fool (and not just because of whatever plastic surgery she did on her face), she’s admitted her behavior was “childish” and she has been making amends. “My intent is never bad, but my delivery always SUCKS,” she defends. “I really have bad skills when it comes to communicating.” Good to know the Pinot-pology tour strikes again!
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.
