Real Housewives Of New York – when it’s too hot in the city, despite the arctic winter chill, escape to the islands of Turks and Caicos but bring the arctic chill with you! I truly did love this episode – it was old times RHONY – real friends, serious drama that wasn’t fake or fabricated, yet light-hearted frivolity and laughs.
I’ve come to love the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. I think they deserve their own bestie name: Bethann? Luannethy? I’ve also come to accept Kristen Taekman as being silent, but necessary – her facial expressions are the omnipotent narrator and her outfits are a pleasant diversion from such atrocities as macramé, lucite stripper heels, or neon yellow bikinis purchased from the MTV Spring Break store in 1993.
After discussing how much fun she had decorating cupcakes with the ladies, Ramona launches right in to what (in her humble opinion) makes Bethenny tick, and why Kristen’s questioning of Bethenny drove her to tears. “Bethenny is a very strong woman. The things she has been going through have been very hard on her emotionally. At times Bethenny cries at a drop of the hat due to all the stress she’s under. I know the feeling as finalizing my divorce has been taking a toll on me emotionally. This is the reason I haven’t written a blog in a while. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and understanding. It means so much to me,” explains Ramona.
According to sources, the network just doesn’t feel Kristen is the right fit for RHONY and this may be Little Miss Prettttttttty’s last season. Hopefully this whole nail polish mogul thing takes off! Sources reveal that Bravo is largely satisfied with the revamping of this season, but there’s too many Housewives and the network already has restructuring in the works for next season. Gee – maybe another friend of Bethenny’s?!

This week Heather Thomson didn’t have a lot to say, either on the Real Housewives of New York, or in her blog. Well, except for commenting on the storyline that she’s fiercely nurturing: How to Help or Not Help THE Bethenny Frankel, of course. Citing her codependent need to force everyone around her to accept her hugs and meatballs, Heather says it’s tough for her to sit back and do nothing where Bethenny’s many, many meltdowns are concerned.
“While I may have failed miserably, I’ve only ever tried to support Bethenny with her struggles/challenges,” begins Heather, “I think we all want to. And that’s why we planned this trip to Turks and Caicos during the week.” Really? The trip that Sonja Morgan (not the entire group) proposed was a masterminded plan to “help” poor, destitute Bethenny!? Okay, then.
“This episode was all about trying to connect and being supportive of each other,” begins Dorinda, “I’M SURE YOU HAVE NOTICED, ahem…the way we communicate sometimes does not support this theory.” Excited that Bethenny coordinated an event for the group, albeit a cupcake event, Dorinda says, “it shows she really is making an effort with us—she likes us. It’s sort of a grownup playdate, with cake batter and frosting. It also proved to be an opportunity to bring out a competitive side from the girls.” With each woman taking her particular brand of neuroses out on the innocent cupcakes before her, Dorinda reflects how “Ramona was contemplative and methodical, Sonja was light-hearted but with flair, and Bethenny was all business (put frosting on cake, put in box, move onto next cake…). I was thinking about it…Which color? Which pattern? Does it make me look taller? (That’s really all I ask myself every morning.)”
Luann is disappointed Ramona chose to lash-out at Kristen Taekman and resorted to calling her dumb, something Luann assures us Kristen is not! “It was only a matter of time before Ramona reared her Ramotional head, and I was surprised at her aggressiveness with Kristen,” Luann recounts. “Kristen has a right to express herself wherever and whenever she wants. As for Ramona calling Kristen dumb…well, that’s just dumb! Kristen is very smart, and while she might be having a little difficulty getting on with some of the girls, her problem is with timing, not intelligence.”
