Last night the ladies of Real Housewives Of New York headed to Miami. No one was very happy about it except for Luann de Lesseps who is eager for the opportunity to show off her amazing, transformational, earth shattering, soul mating love – again. Yes, I think the operative word is “mating”. With other Housewives that is! Which begs the question: are three Housewives better than one?
I understand why Bethenny doesn’t want to go, since sharks smell blood, but why can’t the other ladies go as planned? Bethenny can remain in NYC, get her surgery, and then launch Skinnygirl Tampons or something. We all know she doesn’t want to go, and none of the other women actually want her to go – except for maybe Carole Radziwill, who seems to have more fun sans Beth. Beth On/Beth Off – and Mr. Miyagi says you control your own destiny, Carole
Carole has no story line and I’m tired of hearing about her pet-related “drama.” I miss the days of Carole owning people in arguments and throwing shade in the on-camera interviews – but that’s just not how Carole rolls these days.
I love Jules Wainstein as a person, but whenever I watch her on Real Housewives of New York, I just feel like I’m watching a guppy swimming with great white sharks. This whole environment just seems to be way too much for her and I want to give her a hug.
Even when she tries to stand up for herself, it just doesn’t go well. She is obviously nervous and can’t really get her point across and the mean girls keep walking all over her. Even after the fact, Jules doesn’t even want to take digs at the cast and it makes me wonder why she signed up to do this show in the first place.
Ramona Singer is hosting all the ladies at Mohegan Sun, because everyone needs a little RHONJ in their lives! Since this is a Tru-ReRamona’d, she will not fight over rooms. No more shrieking and streaking through the house, slamming down curling irons to declare her turf. Instead, as the hostess, Ramona simply claimed the best suite and makes everyone else ‘draw cards’ to choose a room. Naturally, Carole and Bethenny Frankel are exempt because they prefer to share. Two monstrous heads are better than one, when it comes to attacking prey, that is!
This Real Housewives of New Yorkseason isn’t even over yet, but I am already pumped up for the reunion episodes. There is nothing quite like watching the Housewives argue with each other over the past season’s drama.
Not only do I love to see the ladies rehashing the controversy, but I also love seeing them all spray tanned and dressed to impress while they try to take each other down. That contrast between them looking classy and getting catty is just too good to resist. There have been no clips released from the reunion yet, but thankfully the ladies posted some behind the scenes photos on social media.
Well, someone found her voice this week on The Real Housewives of New York – even if it was only in her blog! Jules Wainstein unleashed her opinions about Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill in no uncertain terms. Jules’ writing is so sharp in fact, Carole even took to twitter to disparage Jules further and defend herself, re-tweeting one viewer’s pointed question, “I think Jules used a ghostwriter to write this weeks blog. What do u think?” Hmm. You be the judge!
Jules begins by wondering, “‘Why is there always yelling and screaming? Why is someone always storming out of the room in tears? Why is someone always being mocked, insulted, judged or left out? WHAT PLANET ARE WE ON?!’ And then it hit me like a meteor: We are on planet Bethenny. Unlike on planet Earth where friendships are formed and shaped through mutual support and encouragement, on planet Bethenny (which is circled 24/7 by a moon named Carole) it is acceptable for friends to disparage one another behind their backs, to judge, berate and abandon one another on an almost constant basis.” Uh-oh. Shots fired! SHOTS FIRED!
The radio show was aired the day before the RHONY reunion taping. Bethenny is sick, but joked that she can’t imagine what would happen if she called in sick to the reunion. Bethenny sniped “I mean Jules can call in sick because it’s not even like she’s going to be there, but I don’t think I can call in sick tomorrow.” They speculated that they’ll be seated next to each other, but we all know now that wasn’t the case.
