Heather Thomson was faring pretty well during the first leg of the Real Housewives of New York Turks and Caicos trip, given the fact that she and Bethenny Frankel have finally found some common ground after much angst over meatballs and getting up in one another’s “jocks.” But this week things took a turn when Dorinda Medley started in on Heather over walking too far ahead of her to dinner one evening. In her blog, Heather discusses what she calls the “#LamestFightInRHWHistory!” and more, including her vow to stay out of Sonja Morgan’s business.
Heather begins by revisiting Sonja’s blowup about all of the women “ganging up on her,” a situation Heather claims did not occur. What did occur is Ramona Singer stirring the pot, then licking the spoon. “I’m not a professional, and I don’t judge other people’s situations,” says Heather, “so all I can do is bear witness to Sonja’s unpredictable behavior. And I will no longer comment on it. But if anyone was the first to comment about Sonja, it has been Ramona.”
“Well this episode was fun,” admits Bethenny. “This is pure comedy to me. Ramona aka ‘the apologizer’ is some piece of work…I really do feel her pain in her divorce. How can I comment on a life with someone spanning a quarter of a century? I cannot really judge. They say it is bad luck to wear someone else’s shoes. It is most definitely bad form to really understand unless you have walked in them, which I haven’t.”
When Snapped meets Real Housewives Of New York insanity (and hilarity) ensue. In what has become my favorite episode like ever, last night was the perfect genesis of drama (and melodrama) meets fun and friendship. Keep it comin’ Bravo.
The ladies are all Scary Island 2.0, but this time it’s Sonja Morgan having a total break from reality (gummy bears optional). After Sonja and Bethenny Frankel went head-to-head over whose head was more screwed up, the ladies chowed some lobster and went to bed. Drama makes a mama cranky and sleepy. Rather, it makes most people cranky and sleepy – it gives Bethenny and Ramona Singer a crackling energy.
They stay up discussing the Sonja-sodes (the Sonja Episodes) and Ramona confesses to being worried about her bestie. Both agree Sonja is turning to alcohol to cope with loneliness – something ironically they can relate to. This spirals into a truly touching conversation where Ramona opens up to Bethenny about her divorce from Mario.
Yay! It’s that time of the week again when Real Housewives of New York’sDorinda Medley takes us on on the crazy, sense-makin’, straight talkin’ ride that is her blog. This week she reflects on why she’s proud of Sonja Morgan for standing her ground against Bethenny Frankel, why she loves Ramona Singer “like a sister” despite ‘Mona’s ridiculousness, and why wearing a once piece, well-made swimsuit is always the right choice in poolside lounge wear! #burntheyellowbikini
“Hello boys and girls! Welcome to storytime with Aunt Dori. Before we get started with this week’s adventure, a disclaimer: Everyone is crazy. Thanks,” begins Dorinda. Starting with her commentary on the Parkside dinner, Dorinda says more shade was served than rolls that night. “It was a handful of bitchery, and I feel like I overstepped and should have just kept my damn mouth shut about Sonja—or better yet, just defended her more. Who am I to pipe in, really? I have gone through so much grief (sometimes literally) in my life, and the one thing I needed most was a good support system.”
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.
“Turks and Caicos is already off to a crazy start with Ramona and Sonja manically choosing rooms,” begins Heather. “The house was beautiful and featured seven bedrooms…No need for room-gate! We eventually figured it out.” While the tipsy twins were commandeering rooms that suited their fancy, Heather was apparently having a “normal” conversation with Bethenny – something, she points out, the Bravo cameras didn’t really capture. (Where was Carole Radziwill’s Blair Witch Project handheld cam!?) “It’s always so interesting to see what’s covered on the show, because while you might get to see one thing going on, something else you might not see is always happening at the same time. I was much more interested in my conversation with Bethenny. We’re finally talking normally–hooray!”
Ramona being Ramona, she sees her behavior a bit differently than the other ladies when it comes to choosing rooms on vacation. “I felt like a little kid looking for the room for Sonja and me to share. The ladies all take separate rooms, but ever since the Morocco trip, Sonja and I always room together,” claims Ramona. “It was quite humorous with all of us running around like squirrels looking for the nuts.”
