Last night on Real Housewives of New York we celebrated the contrast between good and evil as if that isn’t the perpetual theme of these shows.
Carole Radziwill is turning 50 and wants to celebrate with an over-the-top party in the theme of Good vs. Evil, or basically Ramona and Aviva vs. Carole. Carole enlists her bestie Heather Thomson to plan it but her list of demands is staggering. Things Carole wants for her birthday party: butterflies, chandeliers from her house hung up at the restaurant, headless mannequins, a snake charmer, shiny red apples, a psychic (are we sure she doesn’t mean a psychiatrist?), fire breathing dragons with angels on their wings, 30 dozen white rose petals, the 12 horsemen of the apocalypse, three french hens, and a partridge in a pear tree. Oh and 6 well behaved Housewives, but we all know that ain’t gonna happen!
Heather decides to just be in charge of the booze and hires a party planner stat.
The cast of The Real Housewives of New York season 6 turned out last night to celebrate the premiere of the new season. Sonja Morgan hosted the party at Tokya Sushi Lounge and Nightclub, which was attended by not only the RHONY cast, but a few visitors from other reality TV shows, too.
Tom dished, "Sonja gave an unprepared and somewhat rambling thank you speech (but she looked hot so who cares). It seems Aviva has made nicey-nice with her ex hubby Harry Dubin as he sat having friendly conversation with the ladies (Sonja, Aviva, Luann and the new girl) while they filmed for the show. I guess he's all caught up on his alleged past due child support?? Maybe he was dropping of a check? I didn't even know he existed."
According to Tom, the party was cramped and hot with a cash bar with, "some dude rationing out some drink tickets (2 to a person) to the VIPs. Near the end they ran out of tickets and I heard the waitress ask Luann for her credit card which she gave to pay for the last round and a bottle of Ruffino sparkling wine that I drank with some friends (Thanks Countess!)."
Tom shares that there was a lot of filming going on for the new season – and he even ruined Aviva's entrance footage. "While walking in I kissed Aviva hello as she was getting out of her towncar. She kiss me and said ''You messed up the shot''. So they did it over. Sorry Aviva!! So much for unscripted."
Real Housewives of New York fans, we are in for a treat this season, depending on your definition of treat. We haven't heard much from the ladies of NY since their contracts were finally signed and sealed last month and filming got underway.
This weekend Sonja Morgan showed off her saucy side and stripped down for a good cause, putting on a show at the Speakeasy Moderne cabaret party in East Hampton. Sonja was shaking her groove thing for the benefit of the LIGALY Youth Center.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Last night was the first segment of the Real Housewives of New York reunion. There was a definite divide between the demeanor of the veterans and the demeanor of the newbies last night. And by that, I mean the oldies came prepared to fight, get vicious, down and dirty while the newbies obviously didn't do their research and came prepared to recap the season and discuss.
Reunions are both my favorite shows to watch and my least favorite to recap. My favorite to watch because we get an unfiltered glimpse of the ladies, but they're a real beast to recap because the accusations are flying and the screaming is coming at you from all sides. Meanwhile I'm just trying to assess what everyone is wearing and who looks the worst. In the case of RHONY that award always, without fail, goes to Pinot Singer and last night was no exception.
I'm pretty sure the Project Runway "Unconventional Materials" challenge dress Pinot wore was constructed from old plastic bags on the top and my grandmother's living room sheers on the bottom. All dyed Crayola royal blue. Madame, you are in need of an intervention. Please refrain from drinking and dressing for the duration.
Aviva Drescher andSonja Morgan have already started the tepid steps to disband their barely consecrated friendship. Following a disastrous trip to Miami and Sonja’s friendship with Aviva’s ex-husband (the intrepid, blundering, moon-faced, womanizer Harry Dubin), Aviva has about had it up to [insert Harry’s disappearing hairline] HERE.
In her Bravo blog the Real Housewives of New York star expresses just what is so troublesome about Sonja’s relationship with Harry. Aviva is forthcoming and honest in her sentiments, which is quite frankly shocking (albeit) refreshing for a Housewife and for that we thank you.
“If I had a magic wand, I would have married Reid 12 years ago and had Harrison and Veronica as ours without having to share them. Sharing children with ex-spouses can be very challenging. It becomes even more painful when you have to pretend to get along with your ex around your children,” Aviva begins.
