You can always tell when it’s almost time for The Real Housewives of Atlanta to kick off because the stars (past and present) of the show do a few more appearances than usual! This week saw Cynthia Bailey stopping by the champagne toast to BMI’s Vice President Catherine Brewton in Atlanta. Meanwhile, NeNe Leakes, along with Marlo Hampton, were photographed at the 2017 Ludaday Weekend Celebrity Bowling Tournament in Atlanta.
Unlike a lot of the other shows in the Real Housewives franchise, the Real Housewives of New York ladies actually do seem to have a bond when the cameras aren’t rolling. Most of them have even known each other for decades, so they would probably hanging out (and arguing) even if they weren’t on this show.
I don’t understand why anyone would try to make an enemy out of Bethenny Frankel, but it does happen and the latest person to have Bethenny’s name stuck in her mouth is none other than Jill Zarin advocate Patti Stanger.
Ever since Patti “left” Bravo, she’s had a lot to say about Bethenny her new show.
It’s time for the Real Housewives Of New York ladies to sit down and throw down for three straight weeks, and part one of the reunion started off with a bang – and a spooky disclaimer. As expected, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer faced off, and Luann de Lesseps was forced to answer question after brutal question regarding her marriage to Tom D’Agostino, which was likely on its last leg at time of filming. The setting was very Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil, and the fashions – well, they ranged from Tinsley Mortimer’s Shirley Temple ruffles to Dorinda Medley’s chic, bejeweled butterflies. Sonja Morgan decided to unleash her girls for battle, and Ramona – well. I’m not sure how to put this. Let’s just say, Mariah Carey’s stylist must be moonlighting for RHONY.
Andy Cohen opens the reunion after we are warned by Bravo that “what you are about to watch was recorded three weeks before Luann filed for divorce from her husband of seven months, Tom.” And now I feel like the Blair Witch is beginning. That was INTENSE. (Should we be scared? I’m gonna go with: Yes.) To add to the Gothic effect, Luann is wearing her wedding (reception) dress. This makes me shudder-cringe for poor Lu.
Since Real Housewives Of New York wrapped its dramatic season where Ramona spent plenty of time looking the fool (and not just because of whatever plastic surgery she did on her face), she’s admitted her behavior was “childish” and she has been making amends. “My intent is never bad, but my delivery always SUCKS,” she defends. “I really have bad skills when it comes to communicating.” Good to know the Pinot-pology tour strikes again!
Jill Zarin‘s annual luncheon in the Hamptons drew in a slew of Bravolebrities, including Real Housewives of New York cast members, both past and present. Some of her guests included Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona Singer, Cindy Barshop, Kelly Bensimon, Luann D’Agostino and more. Even former Real Housewives of Miami stars Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton were photographed hanging out.
Also happening this week: Dorinda Medley threw a birthday party for John Mahdessian at Sushi Roxx – with a few of her co-stars stopping by for the event.
