Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York was pretty low-key and I have to say after all the recent drama with certain other Housewives shows it was refreshing to watch a show that focused on the lives of rich, fabulous women instead of fabricated drama and petty fights. Well there was one petty fight, but it paled in comparison to other recent fights on other Housewives shows. And really I never thought there would come a day when I referred to Pinot Singer as low-key, and she’s not by any normal standards, but alas the pinot hath frozen over.

Things open with Aviva Drescher and her husband Reed meeting Heather Thomson and her husband for a getting to know you dinner. Over salads, Heather shares that though her husband is the son of a famous rabbi and they practice Judaism, she is not a full convert. No, no… she’s merely Jewish by injection only. Well, since there’s no shots the doctor can give you to make you Jewish, I’m going to assume the injection comes from her husband’s kosher sausage.

Among the other shocking revelations that came over dinner was the lurid story of Sonja Morgan and LuAnn de Lesseps bedroom activities and their proximity to Aviva‘s ex-husband. Boy, this man is busy on the Housewives circuit! Is he going to make his way to other franchises? Apparently Harry attended Heather‘s birthday party (does he know everyone associated with this show?) where it was disclosed (discovered?) that he slept with both Sonja AND LuAnn. When – no one seems to know – but it was presumably after the time when Aviva was married to him. A surprised Aviva handled the news with dignity, but disgust. I don’t know about you, but that would be a little too close to comfort for me!

I’m guessing the newcomers on Real Housewives of New York didn’t realize they would be jumping back into last season!  With Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon, and Alex McCord out of the picture, it seems like the Count(l)ess LuAnn and Pinot Singer are vying to see who will be the biggest, baddest housewife in all the Upper East Side land.  The claws are out, which isn’t surprising given this pair.

On the season premiere, Countless told her new co-stars of Ramoana’s threat regarding her children.  The maven of manners also demanded an apology for last season’s drama during a party.  I find her public admonishment of ol’ Crazy Eyes a tad hypocritical, given there is, according to LuAnn, a time and a place for everything.  For example, you don’t talk about losing a parent over drinks with friends.  It’s poor form.  However, making others uncomfortable at a party is completely acceptable behavior.  In her Bravo blog, she explains it all…and with words we serfs can understand.

Real Housewives of New York had a looooong hiatus while it got all its new ducks in a row. Sadly, either people forgot about them and didn’t bother going back or everyone is still sick of the lingering taint of acidic drama. Regardless of why less and less people tuned in, the ratings for the season five premiere were less than stellar. Like so less than stellar Kim Zolciak‘s wig reveal slammed RHONY!

According to The Huffington Post, the season premiere only drew 1.7 million viewers in it’s 9pm slot. Which is unprecedentedly low for a Housewives season premiere. Just for some perspective – Real Housewives of Orange County (previously the lowest rated in the franchise) got over 2 million viewers for it’s season premiere.

Allegedly Bravo isn’t too upset by the ratings. “Bravo didn’t expect the numbers to be huge,” a network insider revealed. “Monday is a new night for the show and it’s the most competitive night of the week.”

Well, girls and boys… it finally happened. After months of build-up, Bravo unleashed the New New York and we finally caught a glimpse of Real Housewives of New York without Jill Zaaaaaaaaarin. For those of you who never thought you’d live to see the day – rejoice – but sadly it seems Pinot Singer has hopped right on up into the bitter, negative, biddy role that Jill so recently vacated. Dangit, Pinot!

Last night we were treated to some delightful new blood, and while Sonja Morgan was in good spirits and ready to move on and make new friends but keep the old, LuAnn de Lesseps, Countess no more and Pinot were still circling each other like round the UES rosie with the same old axe to grind. Sonja said the only thing worse than stale brioche at a party is stale guests… well meet your stale guests. Are people still eating brioche?

Things open with LuAnn and newbie Aviva Drescher pretending they’re long lost friends and doing lunch. Let’s just call it what it is – they’ve met each other a total of two times and Bravo is forcing them to interact as buddies to stack the odds. The only interesting thing that came out of this to-do was the revelation that Aviva’s ex-husband Harry has quite the active social life  - so active that he’s dated and most likely boinked LuAnn and Sonja.

I really think I’m going to enjoy the newest additions to Real Housewives of New York…especially Carole Radziwill.  The widow and journalist (not to mention princess and bestselling author) with close ties to the timeless Kennedy clan will be joining Countess LuAnn and Pinot Singer on the upcoming season.  She was recently interviewed by the New York Post where she described herself as the “unlikely housewife.”  I like her already.

Calling the show a “job offer”, Carole explains, “Critical acclaim is great, and it gets you the corner table, but commercial success pays the bills.”  With the women of New York rumored to be making $500,000 this season, I’d say that’s not too terrible of a payday.

While many ladies try to finagle their way into the franchise by befriending wives or crashing cocktail parties (an estimated 500 women tried out for Beverly Hills), Carole had no desire to pursue reality television.  Of her friend and Bravo King Andy Cohen, she says,“I could probably count on one hand the number of conversations I’ve ever had about the ‘Housewives’ show with him.”

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 5

With Real Housewives of New York soon upon us, so too are the ladies and their PR machines. Apparently, this season didn’t turn out any less vitriolic than the last one despite the firing of four Housewives. And it seems all of the drama and negativity centered around one Pinot-soaked, wide-eyed specimen called Ramona Singer. Imagine that!

It seems Ramona, who began the season friends with newbie Aviva Drescher (indeed Ramona was rumored to have gotten Aviva cast on the show) didn’t end the season on the same note. The two are reportedly not speaking to each other, but they are speaking to the press about each other! Only in reality TV world do your ex-friends publicly snark you for publicity! Remember when deleting someone from Facebook was sufficient?

Anyway, in a chat with HollywoodLife, Aviva admits that this season she definitely separated her friends from her co-stars! “It’s like art imitating life and you know who your friends are, you learn who you can trust, you learn who you can’t trust,” she explained. “I really do love by coincidence to two other new women Carole [Radziwill] and Heather [Thomson]. But it wasn’t because we were new, it truly happened that way, organically.”

Ramona is also speaking about on said friendships and it’s no surprise she’s taking no responsibility for any of the issues. I’m really worried that all the Pinot has started to effect her brain.

“What’s interesting is that I embrace each and everyone equally the same way,” Ramona tells RumorFix. “But it turns out that a relationship is dramatically different with each and everyone,  which reflects real life. Not everyone can be great friends with everyone no matter how you are. Certain people have conflicts with each other … it’s reflective of life.”

“It’s kind of interesting because with one housewife, for whatever reason because we didn’t quite hit it off on the right foot. And we ended up really getting really close. And the one who was embracing me and was going out of her way to become my BFF, at the end we went wrong. It was craziness.”

Ramona also reveals that despite the show being called Real Housewives of New York, the ladies do a lot of traveling out of NYC. Likely because, New York wouldn’t have them. Rumors were abound that certain cosmopolitan establishments were not welcoming to the housewives that represent their fair city’s name! So the ladies took their crazy around the globe!

“There’s a trip to London, a trip to South Beach, and trip to St. Barts,” Ramona dishes. “The St. Barts trip is off the charts! It’s off the rails!  You’ll have to watch. Someone gets possessed by someone, that’s what I think.” Ok, then – so long as it’s not another menopausal pregnancy scare, I’ll watch!

Moving right along, LuAnn de Lesseps‘ boyfriend Jacques Azoulay is talking his relationship with LuAnn and what’s next for the couple. Hint, hint – it involves a wedding and possibly a reality show! When asked if the couple was talking marriage, Jacques confessed “always.”

And he’d even consider televising any upcoming nuptials, telling WetPaint, “Maybe. We’ve discussed, but I’m not definite about it. Maybe. Why not?” That’s code for ‘Bravo, please pay for our wedding and offer us a spin-off, called Money Can’t Buy You Love‘.

As for what it’s like having their relationship play out on TV, Jacques doesn’t seem to mind. “It’s fun,” he shares. LuAnn “is who she is first. The rest, it’s circumstances. But we enjoy it, we do.”

Finally, comedian Amy Phillips, recently did some impersonations of Pinot Singer and former Housewife Bethenny Frankel. And really, they are beyond hilarious! The spot-on and absolutely sensational clips are below!

THOUGHTS ON THE DRAMA? ARE YOU SURPRISED RAMONA IS THE MAIN SOURCE OF CONFLICT? WOULD YOU WATCH A JACQUES AND LUANN WEDDING SPIN-OFF?
