The ONLY interesting part of the last Real Housewives of New York episode was a conversation that wasn’t even filmed between Carole Radziwill and Barbara Kavovit. The conversation was recorded because Carole still had her microphone on, but we never actually “saw” the two of them talking. Not only did Barbara question the then-impending union between Luann de Lesseps and Tom D’Agostino, but it was even more captivating because she fought her hardest to stop the episode from airing.
This woman actually took legal action to prevent the episode from being shown and of course that really just built up the intrigue more than anything. She wasn’t saying anything that the other cast members and even the fans haven’t expressed before, but the hushed tones and the super public legal squabble were the only entertaining aspects of such a forgettable episode.
I’m all for using reality TV to do something significant and spread awareness for causes that matter. With that said, I also have to admit that the last Real Housewives of New York episode was rather forgettable. As far as the story lines go, pretty much nothing happened. Again, I want to emphasize that I think it’s great that the whole cast was genuinely charitable, but the episode itself was just a little blah. Nevertheless, Bethenny Frankel had some interesting things to say about Ramona Singer after the episode aired.
Of course I’m happy that there wasn’t actually a scandal disrupting a charity event, but maybe there could have been a hook up or some humorous quotes to get me through the episode? Is that asking for too much? Apparently so.
Dorinda is throwing a charity event for Beauty for Freedom, so she enlists Bethenny’s help – or at least, her commentary – in the effort. They meet out shopping, where Bethenny is more concerned with the “gigantic apartment” in SoHo she’s just purchased, which is 2,000 square feet larger than her current pad. She’s good at flipping properties, she says. And she’d like you to watch her real estate spinoff, please. She’s not good at forgiving Ramona, however, and has no plans of doing so. Though she does vow to be cordial when they’re forced together at social functions.
How could a person be “surprised” that a conversation she had with a Real Housewives cast member while the show was filming would actually get aired in an episode? In all honesty, that’s just ridiculous, but a woman named Barbara Kavovit is claiming just that. She even tried to have a judge block a Real Housewives of New York episode from airing the “private” conversation. (Tonight’s episode)
Sorry, girl. There’s no such thing as privacy when it comes to reality television. Plus this attempt to prevent the episode from airing has just increased the hype around it. In short, this woman is way out of bounds and her plan completely backfired.
Dorinda shares, “I was overwhelmed and deeply touched by Hannah’s speech. You only saw a small part of it but it was incredible and heartfelt. I always knew that Richard and Hannah had a special relationship but I do not think I understood how strong their bond was and how his passing affected her in so many ways. I feel this was a watershed moment for Hannah – a hard, difficult moment.”
If you watch Real Housewives of New York – which I assume you do, since you’re reading this – you are a well-aware that Ramona Singer never holds back when it comes to sharing her opinions. She has been a cast member on the show since the very beginning and it is for good reason. Love her or hate her, she always provides solid material.
After spending Season 8 as the self-appointed peacemaker, Ramona is back in the thick of the drama this year and she’s ready to take on Bethenny Frankel – which is a tough task for any human being to take on. Ramona isn’t backing down though. And it looks like there’s another explosive season ahead.
Even though Ramona Singerwasn’t a guest on Watch What Happens Live last night, it sure felt like she was since pretty much every question that Carole Radziwill answered was about Ramona. Carole got one question about her couch cover, but other than that, the show was basically about Ramona.
I guess that’s what happens when Carole’s life is relatively drama free and she isn’t fighting with anyone on the show: she gets asked about the person who is annoying the cast members the most these days.
