It is so confusing to follow Tinsley Mortimer’slove life. One second she’s dating Scott Kluth. The next second they are on a break. Then they are on vacation together immediately after. The only consistent thing about their relationship status is the knowledge that their relationship status is very inconsistent.
Bethenny Frankel called last night’s episode “The Crying Game” before it aired, which left me to wonder how this trip would differ from any other? I mean, tears, drinks, and stabbing oneself in the hand are just par for the course when The Real Housewives of New York hit the shores of any foreign country, right? As it turns out, this Colombia trip did involve a lot of crying, but it also involved ONE AMAZING WIG courtesy of Luann de Lesseps. So all was not lost!
The South American destination of Cartegena didn’t know what was coming until it saw the Ramonacoaster rolling up in a friggin wheelchair, but the ladies didn’t waste any time making their presence known. After packing montages, the group somehow makes it past airport security to officially leave the country. This is, we assume, an auspicious start.
They made so many headlines when there was gossip about the cast reportedly getting lost at sea. Ramona Singerwas photographed in a wheel chair. The whole trip just sounds like the perfect storm of fun and drama.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, the cast went speed dating. A man with a red scarf purposely went to that event just so he could talk to Bethenny. Ramona Singer went out of her way to get that same red scarf-wearing man a tequila. Meanwhile, Carole’s friend (who orchestrated the event) invited that guy with the intent of setting him up with Carole. Oops.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
On why the viewers seem to agree with her on many things, “I think I’m a very rational, centered person so I think a lot of people watching the show think of themselves that way, so I feel like that’s relatable. I get that a lot when people stop me on the street. They say ‘you’re my favorite, I think we could be friends,’ but then I wonder ‘do they say that to everyone’? Like are they stopping Luann on the street and saying that? Stopping Ramona on the street and saying that?”
