NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 05: Dorinda Medley attends

Dorinda Medley was all but absent on last week’s Real Housewives Of New York – and that had a lot to do with Sonja Morgan. Dorinda says she thinks that in addition to Sonja trash-talking her around town, the former Toaster Oven Entrepreneur (sorry – had to!) is actively trying to keep newbie Tinsley Mortimer away from her. Thus, Sonja did not invite Dorinda to the Mad Hatter’s tea party she threw in Tinsley’s honor, causing some to lament: What were they doing there without Dorinda?!

“So we finally get to meet the new girl—oh wait, I don’t. But before I get there, let me talk about a few other things,” snarks Dorinda in her blog. “Hannah has decided to move out. It took a long time for Hannah and I to heal after Richard’s death. She decided to move back in with me, and I decided to mother her as much as I could during the aftermath of his death. It was the best decision for both of us, but now after five years she has decided it’s time to move out and get her own apartment. I am happy to say it’s in NYC and not too far away.”

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: It Girl, Interrupted

The Season 9 premiere episode of Real Housewives of New York was pretty boring. Still, I feel like we are in for a good season ahead and the second episode felt like a solid move toward an entertaining direction. From the debut of new cast member Tinsley Mortimer to Ramona Singer getting overly offended by Bethenny Frankel getting new dogs, the episode had some pretty funny moments.

From wearing that full-length leopard catsuit to dealing with Carole Radziwill’s political opinions, Bethenny addressed everything that went down during episode two.

Between seasons, it’s easy to forget what an outrageous mess Ramona Singer is. Then Real Housewives Of New York rolls tape again and voila! We remember. This week, Ramona was seen wandering around Sonja Morgan’s house in shades while being hardcore shaded by Sonja’s butler who needs a Bravo contract immediately. She also paid a visit to Bethenny Frankel with Carole Radziwill – where Ramona adamantly denies kicking Bethenny’s puppy!

“I love dogs! The puppies were on the side of my feet jumping with excitement. I did not kick them!” defends Ramona, who was surprised to learn of Bethenny’s newly adopted pets. She was also surprised to hear Bethenny and Carole snarking behind her back: “I know this isn’t a big deal, but what is a big deal are the snarky rude comments behind my back between Carole and Bethenny saying I am crazy! I mean, like really! Talk about who starts sh–.” Existential dilemma: If Ramona says she is not crazy, and other people who are a bit crazy themselves call her crazy – WHO IS ACTUALLY CRAZY?

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: It Girl, Interrupted

On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, we were introduced to the newest addition, Tinsley Mortimer, by way of Sonja Morgan and her Home For Scorned Socialites. Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill continue to hover in the background of the drama, while Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley take center stage as they rail against Sonja’s accusations about Luann’s fiance, Tom D’Agostino. Oh, and Ramona Singer gets straight-up read by a butler, which is essentially far and away the episode highlight.

We open at Sonja’s house, where she’s dyeing her eyebrows and ordering interns to ferry her chocolate. Tinsley pops by to move the hell on in – complete with pillows! Once the “It Girl” girl of NYC, Tinsley fell hard when she splashed across the tabloids in stories revealing ongoing domestic disputes with her boyfriend, one of which resulted in her arrest. Tinsley, now less of an It Girl than a Who? Girl, is trying to rebuild her life. Mission one: find a different sort of guy to date. You know, one who you don’t need to call the police on weekly. Sonja is down for the cause.

RHONY

Dorinda Medley, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan stopped by The Jenny McCarthy Show on SiriusXM’s Inner Circle to preview some hot takes on this season’s Real Housewives Of New York. The ladies dished on everything, from their opinions about Jason Hoppy’s mental state to why they believe Bethenny Frankel is good for the show.

The RHONY trio also offered a glimpse into what it’s like to brawl in front of the cameras (Sonja confesses she can’t stand reunions – they make her sweaty!) and how their friendships continue to forge ahead, despite the drama. Ramona admits that she’d never want Jill Zarin back on RHONY, despite what she calls Jill’s “desperate” attempt to return. And as an added cherry on top, Ramona and Sonja coughed up some inside info on what went down behind the scenes on Scary Island with Kelly Bensimon back in the day!

Real Housewives of New York season premiere

YES!!! The ladies of The Real Housewives Of New York are back and ready to play hardball! Last night’s season premiere set the stage for story lines that will tie the season together – or, more likely, cause everyone to unravel.

Ramona Singer simply can’t allow Luann de Lesseps to marry fiance Tom D’Agostino without creeping her out with strange champagne toasts (and playing Nancy Drew behind her back), while Dorinda Medley can’t let go of the petty nonsense that came to a head with Sonja Morgan at last season’s reunion. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel is busy starting a new chapter of her life, which includes unloading the apartment she once shared with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. And Carole Radziwill, obsessing about the 2016 Presidential election to a degree that even exhausts Bethenny, shows us what it looks like to “shack up” with a boyfriend. Hint: It apparently includes adopting pets, reupholstering your couch, and forcing your boyfriend to get a makeover.

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 9

Happy Wednesday! Are you as excited as we are that The Real Housewives of New York season 9 premieres tonight?

We saw that crazy promo trailer and now Ramona Singer is promising viewers another insane season of fun and fighting. She told Entertainment Tonight, “It’s crazier than hell. I don’t know what it is with us. I mean, you can’t script this stuff. We get nuts with each other. Then we make up. Then we get nuts.”

NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 23: Journalist Carole Radziwill attends the opening night of

We’ve managed to steer clear of political talk here on Reality Tea, wanting to keep the site as a refuge for those seeking an escape from the stress of all things politics – no matter what your views. We’re a fansite for reality television fans and even though a reality star was running for office, we wanted to keep this place as a space for dishing on the ridiculousness and fun of reality shows. That said, it seems the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York is going to force us to acknowledge the election on some level since it is going to be a large part of Carole Radziwill‘s storyline this season.

We weighed our options on how to handle this as we prepare for the premiere of RHONY this week. We even considered NOT covering the show at all this season because if you’ve ventured off and read comments on any political articles, you know full well what a shitshow it is. And we do not want that here. If you thought the heyday of Teresa Giudice VS. Melissa Gorga was a stressful mess of hate when it came to the comments, that was a civilized tea party compared to what we’ve seen when it comes to political discussions online. We even considered recapping the shows but eliminating any of Carole’s political scenes or turning off the comments, but that would be a tricky task and not very authentic and not what we want to do.
