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.”
As The Real Housewives Of New York get ready for their Mexico trip, sponsored by Skinnygirl (TM)Bethenny Frankel, Tinsley Mortimer decides to mimic her favorite gradeschool character by moving into a room on the tippy top floor! (Eloise shout out) of her favorite hotel. Because she’s a grownup now and thinks this will prove it. Plus, moving furniture is just too overwhelming – as is walking, thinking, breathing, and blinking for dear Tins. In fact, she’s getting the vapors just thinking about it all. She just wants to kiss random men in public (like the one Carole Radziwill sets her up with) and get her blowouts on the UES, where room service and clean towels rain down from heaven!!!
Good thing Sonja Morgan’s new eyebrows have been painted solidly to her face, so she’s able to make the wide assortment of facial expressions necessary when Tinsley announces her big-girl plans at dinner. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer’s also got a few facial contortions expressions in store for Bethenny, who sits down with her frenemy to discuss her trip invite – or lack thereof.
Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
