Happy Tuesday! We have an all-new group of reality star photos to share with you this afternoon!
The caption on this photo was just so good that I had to include it here. “Real Life Princess, Carole Radziwill Takes The First Ride In Dunkin Donuts Royal Carriage In Celebration Of The New Royal Love Donut In New York City on May 14, 2018 in New York City.” How lucky is RHONY to have a “real life princess”?
That last episode of Real Housewives of New York was just awkward to watch. It was clear that Dorinda Medleyhad a genuine interest in Bethenny Frankel’sdisaster relief work. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t a good look when she drank to the point of slurring at dinner with Bethenny’s team. She was the only cast member that Bethenny included and the trip wasn’t off to a great start.
During other scenes in the episode, post-divorce Luann de Lessepscontinued to move forward from her short-lived marriage with Tom D’Agostino. This show has been “about Tom” for years, so it might have been a relief for the spotlight to be on Dorinda during the episode.
The three Real Housewives of New York duos (because who knows if “couple” is actually the applicable word in every instance) went to Dubai with some friends. They all visited Ladies of Londonstar Caroline Stanbury.
There’s messy, then there’s Sonja Morgan’s townhouse messy. There’s also Luann de Lesseps’ quickie-marriage-and-divorce messy. And even worse, there’s Dorinda Medley after 3 hundred and four martinis messy. As luck would have it, this week on The Real Housewives Of New York, we get to visit all three crumbling kingdoms in one 53-minute episode! And it’s pretty much as cuckoo as one would expect. But here’s the clincher: We come full circle to a tender moment at the end, which peels back another layer of this group’s continually evolving dynamic.
Tinsley Mortimer is back from being stalked/surprised by Scott whisking her off to Chicago, so she wants to spill all of the giddy details to Carole Radziwill over breakfast. Carole isn’t in a good place with Adam, though. He’s apparently met someone else – someone who will actually admit dating him? Because Carole sure as hell wasn’t up for that sh*t. But she’s not up for him dating anyone else either. Essentially, Carole claims Adam didn’t want to break up, so she just accidentally “slipped back into a relationship” with him. But now? It’s OVAH! So it sounds like there will be no more slipping back into anything, anywhere, anytime from now on.
“I’m not a grudge holder,” declares Luann, “and I’m able to forgive (and sometimes forget). My inner peace is more important to me than focusing on the past; this is why you saw me chat with Missy (yes, THAT Missy) and tell her that the man was the problem, not her!”
In her blog Carole breaks down Tinsley Mortimer‘s fall into a death trance upon sighting Scott, Bethenny’s two-faced antics, and why she finally decided to put her big girl panties on and invite Luann de Lesseps for a sobering tea.
All the chickens come home to roost this week on The Real Housewives Of New York. Well, maybe not all the chickens. Just Scott and Missy, actually. But the random exes of yesteryear still manage to cause a kerfuffle – especially Missy, who may or may not have been the last straw for Luann deLesseps, who despite appearances, is likely hanging on by a very thin thread. Lest we forget, we are heading straight into Palm Beach territory very soon. So Missy’s appearance at Ramona Singer’s shopping party looms ominous.
As a widow herself, it makes perfect sense that Carole Radziwillwould side with Dorinda Medleyin her feud against Sonja Morgan. Sonja told Dorinda that her divorce was equivalent to Dorinda’s husband dying, so of course Carole would be on Dorinda’s side.
Yes, those are both major losses, but Sonja hating on Dorinda for keeping her late husband’s memory alive is not warranted. Not only that, but Sonja talking about her divorce just happened yesterday when it was actually finalized in 2006 is getting old.
