It’s the last leg of the Morocco trip for the Real Housewives of New York, and Alex uses Jill and Ramona’s fight as a springboard to vent her feeling about Luann…to Luann. Kelly fancies herself a therapist/life coach/mean girl when dealing with Alex, with some Scary Island thrown in for good measure. Sonja tries to avoid drama and is reminiscent of the funny, carefree woman we met last season. And Cindy? Poor Cindy is just as confused as ever as to why she agreed to this gig.

Thursday’s episode, “Last Call Morocco,” opens with a shaking and crying Jill, fresh from her altercation with Ramona. The brunettes swoop in to build Jill back up while the blondes attempt to console Ramona across the riad. Being the hostess with the mostess (attitude, that is), Luann will not allow Ramona’s behavior to ruin the ladies’ trip. She quickly goes to reprimand her guest, but Sonja and Alex run interference by requesting (what else?) pinot grigio for a traumatized Ramona who is being coddled to Alex’s braless chest.

Knowing the cardinal rule of entertaining, Luann obliges and pours a glass of liquid gold for Ramona before ripping into her. I believe that was covered in Chapter Three of her etiquette book. Alex, having found her backbone this season, asks Luann to leave before she can begin scolding Ramona. Kelly comes in and tells the girls that she refuses to take sides, and Ramona admits that she should have kept her mouth shut to avoid her fight with Jill. I had to rewind that part four times to make sure I’d heard her correctly!

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York City was all about vaginas, vacations, and Pinot… again. Jill Zarin is hosting an anti-bullying fundraiser, and while guests are paying $200 to attend, the irony of Jill championing this event is priceless. Kelly accidentally sees Sonja’s ladybits, Cindy takes her good friends on a “brunettes only” weekend, New Housewife Pinot Grigio high-jacks Jill’s charity event, and sweet LuAnn just wants everyone to get along, dammit!

The episode begins with LuAnn and Sun-yah meeting for lunch to discuss a girls trip. LuAnn is planning to “break the tension” between the ladies. Since this is a classy restaurant, Sonja, predictably arrives straight from the gym with a fur thrown over her sports bra. Sonja states she wants to go to Italy for Truffle Season (that’s a thing?) because “everyone will be there!” Everyone except the NY Housewives, that is, because LuAnn is just so over Italy and wants to vacation somewhere exotic. Somewhere like Morocco, which is the Paris of the Middle East, didn’t you know? Bravo, desperate to capitalize on a repeat of Scary Island, decides Luann must “invite” all the ladies, but LuAnn has some reservations about Kelly being included because no one wants “Scary Desert” on the horizon. Well, no one but Bravo, because ratings are everything dah-ling, so Kelly is IN!

Ahh, Real Housewives of New York…this week we say G’day to Jill (have you missed her?  She missed you!), Sonja reveals the housewives’ pecking order to newbie Cindy, Kelly and Ramona call a truce (??), LuAnn makes it clear that shopping parties are not her glass of pinot cup of tea, and Alex finds her (slightly grating) voice when it comes to holding her own.

Jill returns to lunch with LuAnn, Kelly and Sonja, and the first thing out of Jill’s mouth is that she is done mouthing off about others.  No. More. Gossip. From. Jill.  And 5-4-3-2… “Oh, I want to be out of the gossip and the garbage, but sometimes I get sucked back in…”  Kelly’s threat drunk text from Ramona resurfaces and the ladies learn Kelly is going to meet Ramona for lunch the following day.  Sonja is concerned that Kelly isn’t quite ready to confront meet with Ramona, and thus begins the role-playing to prepare Kelly for the inevitable barrage of Rameddling.  If Ramona ever gets the flu this season, I think Sonja could easily just grab a glass of pinot grigio, do Ramona better than Ramona does Ramona, and we viewers would be none the wiser.

This episode of Real Housewives of New York City was scattered, hard to follow, and all over the place – so the writing is reflective of how difficult it is to connect the plot points. The episode, which Bravo dubbed “Ramona’d” was all about Ramona Singer unleashing her Pinot Personality and letting her cray-cray take over, I call that Cramona. Crazy Ramona. We’ve seen it before from Mrs. Mario Singer – however not like this, but lets start out the recapping by focusing on another lady who is losing her marbles and a different one who is losing her teeth. Sonja Morgan and Cindy Barshop take it away!

Replacing Jill Zarin this season as Empress of the frienemies, Sonja agreed to trek all the long way downtown to TriBeCa and meet Cindy for some shopping and designer schmoozing at Vivienne Tam and then lunch at Cipriani. Unfortunately, when Sonja arrived Cindy had some news: after having a few too many Martinis at Ramona’s event the previous night, she devoured a bunch of pistachios and the veneers on her two front teeth fell off! A likely story if I’ve ever heard one –I personally think she took a drunken tumble after all those martinis. It happens to the best of us. :-) The ladies proceed into the store where Cindy actually pulls out the broken front teeth, which she has brought with her in a Ziplock baggie along with an accompanying tube of Fixadent. While in Vivienne Tam Cindy, asks Sonja to help her put her teeth back in. Yuck. Sonja is understandably grossed out! Who wants to eat lunch after all that? Sonja still does, actually.

They’re baaaack! Agaaaain!

After getting bumped two months ago in favor of the Miami housewives, the Real Housewives of New York City return tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

On the season 4 premiere titled “Grin and Bare It,” Ramona hosts a rooftop cocktail party while elsewhere, tension continues to brew between Jill and Alex; and the ladies gear up to participate in a gay-equality march. Single mother and spa entrepreneur Cindy Barshop joins the cast. A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight will be Ramona Singer and Jill Zarin!

In other news, following a major slight fall from grace last season with her actions both on and off the show, Jill Zarin reveals the reason she decided to return for another season.

But first Jill states she felt she was ganged up on last year. “I was ganged up on by Alex, Bethenny and Ramona,” Jill tells the NYDailyNews. “It’s so last year and it’s so over that I don’t want to talk about it anymore. … But let me tell you, it’s hard to fight three against one. One on one is one thing. Three on one, not so even.”

So why did she return? “I asked my husband, Bobby, ‘What should I do?’ And he said, ‘Don’t leave,’ ” she says. “My family felt that I wasn’t portrayed accurately, that I needed to come back, to have another round at it. Then, if I want to leave, I leave with my head held high.” Aka ‘I’m going to spend this entire season pretending to be nice and trying to redeem my image.’

Meanwhile, the NYC ladies visited The View talk show this week during which both Jill and her BFF Kelly Bensimon tried to insinuate the show isn’t real, well at least last season, with Kelly also trying to convince us she isn’t really crazy.

First Jill insinuated Bethenny Frankel played up their fight for the cameras last season. “You wanna know what the truth is? The truth is I thought it was a wink-wink. We had a fight, I thought it was sort of drama for the show and that we would make up,” said Jill.

And when host Sherri Shepherd asked Kelly about being crazy and that whole Scary Island meltdown, Kelly denied being mentally unstable. “I didn’t fall apart. It’s hard to be portrayed as crazy and it’s hard to come back from that,” said Kelly. “Sorry you guys I didn’t fall apart. I know it’s hard for everyone to understand that … I make great television and Bethenny and I create better television. So, I mean, that’s what it is,” added Kelly as we try to figure out what planet these people are living on.

They’re baaack!… Again!

Bravo just announced moments ago that the Real Housewives of New York City will return for their 4th season on Thursday, April 7, at 10/9c.

This follows the previous snafu that occurred last month during which Bravo decided to postpone the show 2 weeks before it’s scheduled Feb. 15th premiere in favor of the lackluster Real Housewives of Miami.

The NYC Housewives have all teased that Bravo postponed the season due to too much drama and needing more time to edit the show, which was still filming two weeks before it was meant to debut. And judging from the trailer below, they might have been right.

Bravo promises “the new season will definitely be worth the wait.”

The new season trailer is below -

TELL US – ARE YOU STILL EXCITED FOR THE NEW SEASON? THOUGHTS ON THE NEW TRAILER?

A day after the shocking news by Bravo, stating they were postponing the Real Housewives of New York City in favor of the Real Housewives of Miami two weeks before its premiere date, many are now wondering what the real reason is.

As we pointed out yesterday, Popeater reported back in December that Bravo higher ups were not happy with the way the 4th season was going after viewing the footage. Things were apparently so bad that Bravo asked Bethenny Frankel to return to the show for many appearances, something she wanted no part of.

Fast forward to today and the NY Post as well as the NYDailyNews are both reporting Bravo pulled the plug on the Feb. 15 premiere because they thought it was too boring.

According to the Post, the producers decided to cancel the original premiere because “it lacked the explosive catfight-filled drama expected of” other Bravo housewives series. In fact, Andy Cohen emailed the entire cast of the show early yesterday informing them of the news.

“We decided yesterday that our best bet was to give ourselves a little breathing room,” Andy wrote. “I would rather get the show right than rush it to air.” Andy also warned the cast not to tweet about it until Bravo made the official announcement.

Sources tell the Post that following good ratings for its drama-filled Beverly Hills counterpart, the producers simply felt the New York show didn’t have enough drama to satisfy viewers. “They wanted the ladies to fight like cats and dogs, but they got along,” said a source. “[But] they are now freaking out that they’ll get fired for being boring and replaced by more fiery women.”

The NYDailyNews also confirms the Post’s story adding the cast was informed of the change just hours before it became public news. Bravo also reportedly received negative feedback following the sneak peeks they aired this week during the RHOBH. The final reason for the change? Bravo “thinks ‘Miami’ is more like ‘Beverly Hills‘” and bets fans of the latter, which just ended its season, will “piggyback” onto “Miami.”

The cast of the show are however giving a different reason for the sudden cancellation. Both Simon van Kempen and Alex McCord tweeted yesterday that Bravo simply needed more time to finish the editing considering they were still filming just a week ago.

In an interview with Star magazine, Sonja Morgan gives the same reason. “I think they feel like they have such good stuff, they don’t want to waste it. They want to make sure it’s done properly. Personally, I’m relieved. It gives me more time to relax, especially considering Ramona [Singer] and I were shooting seven times a week. They’ll have Miami go out first and when they’re done, we’re up.”

Sonja added, “they need some more time to edit. We’ve filmed like crazy, more than ever, and we’re seven ladies so they have a lot of footage to go through.” Safe to assume they “filmed like crazy” because Bravo wasn’t happy with the footage they saw more than halfway through filming.

As for Bravo, Andy released this official statement – “No conspiracy here, folks. We have an embarrassment of riches with Miami and New York, and I assure you that ‘the Real Housewives of NYC’ will be well worth the wait.” The new season is now slated to air in April or May.

TELL US – WHICH STORY DO YOU BELIEVE REGARDING WHY THE SHOW WAS POSTPONED? WHAT DID YOU THINK OF THE SNEAK PEEKS?

It seems Luann de Lesseps and cast-mate Ramona Singer have now made up following what Ramona calls an “accidental” re-tweet she made last week which showed the Countess’s 16-year-old daughter Victoria de Lesseps rolling up a joint and using the N-word in a youtube video.

In the above photo, tweeted by Alex McCord this week, you can see the Real Housewives of New York City stars looking rather chummy as they all headed out to lunch in Los Angeles paparazzi capital aka The Ivy restaurant.

The NY ladies are currently in LA to promote the upcoming 4th season of their Bravo show. “Luann and I may have our differences but we all respect each other,” Ramona told Radar on Wednesday. “We do get along and in fact we are having lunch together today.”

RadarOnline reported earlier this week that things had gotten so bad between Ramona and LuAnn that the two ladies refused to speak to each other or even be anywhere in the physical vicinity of one another.

“Ramona and Luann have both insisted to producers that they expressly be kept away from each other throughout the trip,” a source close to the situation told Radar. “To say they loathe each other would be an understatement!”

The source also added the two requested to “be put on totally separate flights and in addition they have requested that they are not even placed on the same floor of the hotel in LA.”

In other NYC news, Sonja Morgan hosted a ‘Show Me Your Best Burlesque’ party days ago.  The theme of the party was “Fishnets, Feathers and Flesh,” and in attendance were some of her fellow NYC Housewives.  Photos of Alex, Kelly, Ramona, Sonja and new housewife Cindy Barshop at the event below.  Also below are photos of the NYC Housewives doing press in LA. Judging by the pics, it’s pretty obvious how the cliques aligned this season.
