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 woman formerly known as Luann de Lessepshas 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.
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.
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!
In all honesty, Tinsley Mortimer isn’t bringing much to Real Housewives of New York. Then again, pretty much no one is, which I’m sure is tough to do after they had the best season ever last year. Hopefully they turn things around with this Mexico trip (and Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into the bushes), but the episodes up to this point have been a total snooze fest. The only thing going on is Bethenny Frankel’s feud with Ramona Singer, which has dragged out way too long and just isn’t entertaining anymore.
Still, it did get kind of weird when Bethenny and Ramona attempted to have a “private” conversation in front of the cameras for a cast dinner. Then Bethenny got weirdly offended when other people eavesdropped even though no one could help listening in to a conversation that was happening a few inches away from them.
We have a hot new photo roundup of the reality stars out and about this past week. Kim Kardashian had to up her attention game last week as Rob was stealing her spotlight with his Blac Chyna drama. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star stepped out in NYC exposing her skimpy see-through bra and nearly everything else it was attempting to “cover” up.
With The Real Housewives Of New York’s trip to Mexico just around the corner, Luann D’Agostino is gathering her wits and her statement necklaces about her for the dysfunctional adventure ahead. She says she’s excited to see footage roll of the ladies’ shenanigans (including her falling down the steps…into the bushes…from grace), but that she wishes Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer would just put their drama behind them. (HA!)
Luann reflects, “Over the past nine years, I’ve taken some amazing trips with the ladies. We’ve ridden camels, skied, partied in clubs with pirates (and on sandbars), and stayed in some incredible houses, so I’m excited to go to Mexico with the girls. Ramona’s going no matter what and hopefully she will behave.”
