The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Make Out, Make Up

Much like the best house party you ever attended freshmen year, last night’s Real Housewives Of New York came replete with drunken makeout sessions, naked crying in the pool, and knifings. Yes – it was epic. And I may be fangirling out so hard that I have blinders on, but I’ll say it again: This Mexico trip is serving up some of the best Housewives moments in recent memory. It’s a rare gift, and we totally deserve it after suffering through the Tom and Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] wedding snooze fest for eight straight episodes!

We pick up with Sonja Morgan “therapizing” Ramona Singer by the pool. She wants Ramona to admit she’s not happy. Why? Because she’s not getting banged by Mario every night but some other chick is. Fresh off her 10 minute month sobriety, Sonja is feeling loose on tequila and truth. Bethenny Frankel thinks Sonja needs to back the eff off though, shockingly defending Ramona against Sonja’s drunken tirade. Ramona screams that she’s happy, but admits she misses having a man.

Believe it or not, every Real Housewives of New York news story doesn’t automatically have to be about drama or alleged adultery. Sometimes light and fluffy can be just as entertaining- not always, but here and there it is true. While the fandom is still watching this infamous Mexico trip play out, Bethenny Frankel has revealed her favorite person in the cast to travel with.

Surprisingly enough, it’s actually not her BFF Carole Radziwill. Speaking of Carole, she is actually preparing to run the New York City Marathon for a great cause.

Even though most of this season was pretty blah, this cast Mexico trip has really revived Real Housewives of New York. So it was the perfect time for Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer to discuss the show on Watch What Happens Live.

Tinsley gave an update on her living situation and her love life. They both shared their thoughts on who planted that Page Six story (Sonja Morgan) and those allegations that Luann D’Agostino slapped Tom D’Agostino in a restaurant.

Just in case The Real Housewives Of New York didn’t have enough tequila during the first night of their trip, Bethenny Frankel decides to free them from their resort habitat to drink straight from the agave fields in the town of Tequila itself! It’s like a Housewives birthright trip, wherein they head back to the ultimate power-source of all Bravo drama. Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps], champ that she is, rallies from her multiple falls in time to partake, as does power-napping Dorinda Medley. The only question before Bethenny’s outing is this: Will Ramona Singer be murdered in her sleep by the house staff allowed to go?

The morning after Sonja Morgan and Ramona tore through rooms like Hurricane Crazy, the group awakens to a new day. Dorinda and Luann are practicing yoga on the patio while Carole Radziwill is inside demanding bean-free huevos rancheros. Luann is relieved to be alive, and without a scratch to boot! Tinsley Mortimer is giddy over the enormous bouquet of flowers delivered to her from new boyfriend, Scott. She’ll have to stick a pin in that joy for now, though, because there are fights to be had! Namely, between Ramona and Bethenny.

After giving up her room to Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan in Vermont, Dorinda Medley finally put her foot down in Mexico. When The Real Housewives Of New York ladies arrived at their beautiful rental house, Dorinda almost gave in again to the spastic fits of Grabby and Greedy – until Bethenny Frankel practically tasered someone stepped in to break up the madness. In her blog, Dorinda reflects on what she calls “the worst” behavior she’s seen from the likes of Ramona and Sonja.

Dorinda recounts the events leading up to that point, beginning with the car ride: “Well we finally made it to Mexico, and yes, Ramona is with us!…I was personally ready to get in the car, have a quiet ride to the house, have a welcome drink, and go to the beach. But alas, that never happens, does it? The ride involved Sonja going on about a mistaken picture of someone’s private parts sent by mistake, and a game of kill, marry, and, well, you know the rest. As you can see by my actions, I had very little interest in either. By the way, who gets a penis picture by mistake?” Well, Sonja does. That’s who!

Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan racing through rental properties like hellhounds in heat is not a new sight for loyal viewers of The Real Housewives Of New York. For Tinsley Mortimer, however, it was a brand new obnoxious experience! And she’s still a bit shell shocked from it. In her blog, Tinsley calls out Ramona’s enormous sense of entitlement, and her egging-on Sonja to be angry at Tinsley for not handing her room over to them instead of trip organizer, Bethenny Frankel.

First, Tinsley gushes about her new man, Scott, who Carole Radziwill set her up with – and who she’s still seeing! “Having just come off a super fun and spontaneous five-day-long date with Scott, I was feeling super rested and happy and excited for a fun girls’ trip to Mexico. We were having so much fun that first night that Scott decided we should continue the date in Miami where we spent another four amazing days together. Thanks to Carole, this is the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to me. I can’t believe how lucky I feel to have met Scott!”

Oh. My. God. Mexico had no idea what was coming! Because when The Real Housewives Of New York decide to invade your country in the name of booze research, you need to erect a wall around them. Last night, Bethenny Frankel’s tequila-inspired adventure sailed right into crazyville, where Ramona Singer (whose face suddenly resembles a grated radish) took room-grabbing to new levels, Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] tumbled drunkenly into bushes and concrete patios, and Tinsley Mortimer accused her benefactress of being a traitor.

We begin with the group arriving in Mexico, where Bethenny already has the sh*ts – or the flu – or spontaneous diarrhea in response to staring at what little skin remains on Ramona’s face (courtesy of a chemical peel). Carole Radziwill is looking forward to Taco Bell and to congratulating herself on her matchmaking skills with Tinsley and Scott. They are an official item! The ladies play “marry, f–k, kill” in the car on the way to their rental, then take a gander at a stray d*ck pic Sonja Morgan received on her phone from a wrong number. If anything, this is an omen of things to come.

RHONY Season 9 Reunion Seating Chart

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!

The seating chart reveals that, predictably, Ramona and Bethenny Frankel are on either side of Andy Cohen which means their drama is sure to take center stage – as it has all season.
