Carole and Jules had a ‘bonding moment’ over being the two skinniest girls in the room at Dorinda Medley’s bra party, but Carole isn’t buying Jules’ claims that she comes by her thinness naturally! Carole is confused about Jules defense being that she gets her period every day.
“Huh?” wonders Carole. “It’s kind of like hearing a friend you suspect drinks too much say, ‘What? I don’t drink too much, I never even black out.’ Ummm, okay.”
Speaking of RHONY stars past and present – Bethenny Frankel was spotted by the paps walking in Soho and then they spotted Jill Zarin and her husband Bobby across town.
Ramona Singerhas been quite the social butterfly lately! She hit up the premiere of “Equals” during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and then attended the #ActuallySheCan Film Series event at Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas.
Keeping the New York Housewives theme going – Sonja Morgan stepped out for the 8th Annual Blossom Ball benefiting the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
In the gallery below you’ll find plenty of non-RHONY stars, too: Tamera Mowry, Kyle Richards, Rob Kardashian, La La Anthony, Adrienne Maloof and more!
After the blow up between Dorinda, Bethenny Frankel, and Ramona at the brassiere (or “brawr” – depending on who you ask) party, everyone has a drink and Dorinda puffs a Newport Light 100 (or maybe it was one of Jules Wainstein‘s Virginia Slims left over from 1977 kept in a fireproof dry box under the bed, the blessed creatures pulled out for emergencies only. She better buy some on eBay to get through Real Housewives Of New York).
The episode awakens amid the chaotic domestic scene of Jules Wainstein‘s morning. I presume the live-in nanny doesn’t do childcare before 9am? Jules struggles to make coffee for husband Michael, then announces she’s eating half his breakfast, and then puts both kids in the bathtub, even though they’re perilously perched on being late to school – as always. Not that Jules cares. Paying tuition entitles her to reinvent the clock, so she can be an hour late everyday if she wants to. It’s Jules‘ world and we’re all living on Jules time – it’s hair flip o’clock somewhere!
Luann de Lesseps just wants everyone to be cool, like the Countess – which is definitely not going to happen on this season of Real Housewives of New York. Despite all the impending calamities, which have already started to unfurl amid our tempestuous ladies, Luann is excited to focus on new drama and let go of the old!
“We’re back stronger than ever!” gushes Luann after the season 8 premiere. Since we last saw her Luann’s son Noelle went off to college, and Luann decided to move apartments. In the process she’s residing in her fabulous Hamptons home, but what’s a city girl to do when her city abode is no occupado? Why shack up with Sonja “Sexy J” Morgan, of course!

Not shockingly, the Bravo franchise that at one time seemed beneath Skinnygirl maven Bethenny is now regaling in her return. She makes the show great. And you don’t have to trust me on that one…she’s the one who thinks it! I kid, I kid. Bethenny may be the expert on everything, but it’s the ladies’ special blend of drama that makes the show fun to watch.
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New York. We met new Housewife Jules Wainstein. The original B of Bravo, Bethenny Frankel, also returned, and whew, was she some kinda mouthy! Bethenny apparently sees herself as the reverse fortune teller of RHONY; she won’t tell you your hopeful future, but with condescending judgement she will point out everything that’s wrong with you, your life, your past, and your overall way of being.
Bethenny is also the ‘Party Police’ this season – obviously replacing the woman she once loved to hate, Heather Thomson, who gathered her big-girl shaping panties and fled this Skinnygirl bar.
Things begin in Bethenny’s new apartment. Hurrah – she’s no longer homeless! The new place is nice, but in that blandly generic HGTV design show sort of way. Dorinda Medley visits to gawk over Bethenny’s Traum Safe, as if it’s something Dorinda couldn’t afford to install in her own pad. Bethenny and Dorinda have become close, but there is one major issue: Bethenny doesn’t approve of John. Like at all.
Tonight Bravo gave us our first “First Look” at this week’s premiere of The Real Housewives of New York season 8. The show is returning in five days (Wednesday, April 6th) and aside from a peek at the first ten minutes of the episode and some highlights of the drama to come, we also get a look at their new taglines for the season!
