On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the subject on everyone’s lips was blood and Luann de Lesseps. Does Luann have blood on her hands for ruining the group in her refusal to play the role of Bethenny Frankel‘s sycophant? Well, it appears none of that matters quite so much in the wake of Bethenny‘s health issue.
I don’t even think Luann made an appearance last night, but she was revived with her own ‘Before They Were Housewives’ special which aired after the show and my has she had quite a fascinating life.
Anyway, unfortunately, both Bethenny and Jules Wainstein spent their off-hours at Lenox Hill Hospital getting their vaginal areas investigated and mended. More on that later…
Oh Real Housewives Of New York – you never cease to amaze me. Last night’s episode shone a rather frantic light on the very temporary nature of life as a Housewife.
First up Sonja Morgan has an intern she believes is her twin. This intern has Sonja’s nose, butLuann de Lesseps‘ voice and it’s all together confusing. That poor girl – Alex – upon realizing her predicament was shocked. In Sonja’s kitchen Luann lectures her about making amends with Bethenny Frankel, but Sonja is not inclined. She’s not going to grovel at the feet of the self-proclaimed Queen B, who is schtupping other women’s husbands and channeling the burden of her hypocrisy by having hysterical projecting meltdowns on Luann. Or at least I think that’s what happened between Bethenny and Luann during the Berkshires Bonanza. Which sounds like a recipe. Maybe Adam and Carole Radziwill can put it in their cookbook?! I give it a “Radish Rating” of 9.
At this point, it does not seem like Carole Radziwill and Luann de Lesseps will ever be friends. There has just been way too much drama and really goes beyond Real Housewives of New York. These two really cannot stand each other and they will jump at every possible chance to put the other’s shit on blast.
So I’m not at all surprised that Carole is capitalizing on the Luann-centered arguments from the most recent episodes. Carole has decided to speak out against Luann and call her out for hypocrisy- yet again.
I have no idea why anyone would ever come for Dorinda Medley after attending on her events. She really is the hostess with the mostest. It really killed me to see the ladies ruin her holiday party throughout multiple episodes of Real Housewives of New York . Dorinda did what she could to have a fun party and look after her guests. I mean come on, she made lasagna, invited Santa Claus, and got the girls customized wine glasses as gifts. She could not have done a better job!
That’s why I’m vicariously offended by the fact that both Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill decided to make fun of Dorinda’s home and use the house itself as a justification for their behavior there. Not to mention that it literally makes no sense to accuse someone’s home of instigating an argument. Well, Dorinda didn’t take too kindly to the remarks and she let her anger in a pretty public forum.
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.
Say what you want about Sonja Morgan and her attempted business ventures, but you have to admit that she is very endearing. Sonja might lack some etiquette in certain business and social situations, but Sonja has never ever been a mean girl. Sure, she has offended some people, but she was never malicious. And that is why I can’t help feeling bad that Sonja is left out a lot this season on Real Housewives of New York.
Dorinda Medley purposely didn’t invite Sonja to the Berkshires because she said she wanted to prevent drama, but it really just hurt her feelings and there was a shit storm of drama anyway (as per usual). And Sonja is still understandably miffed by the whole thing.
Yeah, I’m just gonna admit it – I didn’t want to write this Real Housewives Of New York recap. I had to rally and force myself, because last night was just so icky, fake, mean, desperate, and scheming. I wish for Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel to take a good, hard, long inventory of their lives before they judge one more person. That display last night was, again, all kinds of hypocrisy and person-shaming, and lady bashing. I don’t care how much they boast about how it was one of the greatest episodes of all time – it wasn’t, in my opinion. So it’s round two of Get Crass With The Countess.
I don’t think Luann is any sort of innocent – she is annoyingly self-righteous, her jumpsuit was sinfully ugly, and I was pissed that she turned supplicant by apologizing to Bethenny after Bethenny’s barrage of insults. Also, I do think Luann likes to shift around the truth of things – like her relationship with Tom – but I don’t think anyone deserves the sort of treatment Bethenny dished out and I think Luann more than held her own in a calm manner, which impressed me.
“If there was anything I would do now that I never would have done when I was younger, it’s a reality show. I could only do it now because I am so grounded in who I am,” explains Carole. “So there’s no fear that I am suddenly going to become this crazy, screaming lunatic.” Well… maybe not the “screaming” part… Or wait – didn’t Carole grab Aviva Drescher on a flight of stairs over #BookGate?
