Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from the week. Enjoy.
Last night Real Housewives Of New York turned 100 and kept it 100! Andy Cohen checked in one-on-one with all of the current cast, Aviva Drescher, and also Kelly Bensimon who shared some really illumination information about her version of Scary Island, the issues with Bethenny Frankel, and more. It made me all the more le sad that Le’ Ladies New York are done for this season!
It’s clear that Bethenny has become the omnipotent narrator of RHONY; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-describing prophet who speaks of success and failures with aplomb and certainty. It’s not a bad role for her, and she clearly relishes in it (and clearly isn’t glad her talk show ended!).
For the 100th episode, I was pleasantly surprised how candid and willing the ladies were to share their side of the stories – and I’m also super glad Bravo allowed them to really go IN. I appreciated Bravo not pretending viewers don’t understand things such as editing!
Wait, what? Heather Thomson recently announced her departure from the Real Housewives Of New York, and everyone is already wondering who should replace her. But, Monica Lewinsky? We know, that may sound like a strange one, but for whatever reason, Dorinda Medley thinks that Lewinsky would be great. We’ll just let that one sink in for a moment.
Okay, maybe it’s not so shocking that Medley would bring up Lewinsky or the Clintons, since Medley’s late husband worked for the U.S. House banking committee, in which he and Dorinda worked with Clinton family doing fundraisers. But Monica? Seems like an odd choice, but to each their own. What else did Medley have to say about Thomson’s departure?
After a season of frustrating relationships and failing friendships, Heather found herself at a cross-roads. “My third year I kind of figured out where I was with the women. There was a beginning, middle and end for everything, and for me, that was the end,” says Heather, who credits the process for making her “wiser.”
For quite some time now, the rumors have been buzzing about Heather Thomson possibly quitting The Real HousewivesOf New York, but Heather had not confirmed nor denied the rumors. In fact, just two short months ago, Thomson claimed that she was not even thinking about next season, but we all know that in the back of her mind, leaving was a definite possibility.
Sadly, it looks as though all of those rumors are true. Heather confirmed today that she is indeed walking away from The Real Housewives Of New York, leaving some of her friends disappointed, but understanding of why Thomson wants to leave – she tired of the “forced drama.” Thomson and her BFF Carole Radziwill both spoke out about her departure recently.

Bethenny’s dramatic return to RHONY (along with the cast dynamic) revived the once stagnant show. RHONY has always been Andy Cohen‘s baby – and the same can be said of Bethenny, his friend and the original break-out Housewife. Bravo is hoping to continue that magic next season is well and are in “final negotiations” with Bethenny for a contract renewal. Along with Bethenny, the other definite returning Housewives are Luann de Lesseps and Carole Radziwill because of the former friends acrimonious arguing on and off TV.
Last night Real Housewives Of New York revealed secrets. Such secrets as Bethenny Frankel is the only woman in NYC who has abandoned waxing. And sadly, it’s all over. But there were no fat ladies singing – only ex-countesses with autotune.
The big storylines were that Carole Radziwill has forgotten how to be an author and Josh and KristenTaekman had a 10-year anniversary celebration for which Kristen busted out her wedding gown. Also, Ramona Singer confessed that there were fractures in Ramonja. That’s it – the world is ending! But there was a new RHONY dynamic duo to replace them- Harole (Heather and Carole). In the end Ramona and Sonja Morgan hugged and made-up because after an adult lifetime of friendship and drama, of course there will be times when they don’t see eye-to-eye or support each other in the right way.
Bethenny and Dorinda Medley meet for drinks to swap stories about their past lives being broke and waitressing. Both credit the hard work, volatile environment, and required sucking up for tips to their current success because they’re not afraid to speak their minds, be bold, or mix cough medicine with booze. Bethenny loves Dorinda because she’s a broad. Hey, isn’t that why we all like Dorinda? In fact, all these long seasons – what was RHONY doing here without Dorinda?!
Rumor has it Heather is fed up that her storyline this season was relegated to her drama with Bethenny Frankel, thus featuring very little of her real life. It’s no secret that Heather wants to promote her company Yummie Tummie, but she also has been active in raising awareness for the charity No Barriers Warriors, none of which we saw!
In her final blogHeather posted a cryptic message that alludes to this season being her last. Keeping it short and sweet, Heather emphasized, “I loved sharing this season with you… so let’s keep in touch!”
