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 this week. Enjoy.
And sadly, the Real Housewives Of New York stars’ drama has spilled over onto twitter – first with Luann ripping Carole a new one, then apologizing. But now it’s Carole who spends her days – when she should be writing a book – writing nasty tweets about the “Countessa.”
This latest round started when Carole read Luann’s blog, which naturally discussed Carole and Dorinda Medley‘s emotional trip to London. Commenting on the rumors that the Radziwill family is unhappy Carole chose to make Anthony’s death a storyline, Luann hints that it might be true. Which was an uncalled for comment on Luann’s behalf.
Beginning with kind words for the ladies in London, Bethenny reflects, “It was a bittersweet journey for Carole and Dorinda in London. I’m glad they were able to get through it together and be stronger because of it.” But, “While the ladies were away, the crazies certainly did play. I laugh out loud watching Ramona and Sonja recap the trip. Ramona is attempting to convince Sonja that she wasn’t kissing anyone and Sonja is saying “I see,” aka bullsh–. Ramona hides onto a bullsh– lie until it is on its last legs dying and begging for mercy.”
Last night on Real Housewives Of New York tears were cried, laughs were laughed, and friendships formed in the most unlikely of circumstances. It was nice.
Carole Radziwill and Dorinda Medley have arrived in London and their hotel rooms are enormous. Also, Dorinda has suddenly become “Doris,” but pleasantly she’s swapped aggressive martini-fueled meltdowns for good-natured girl talk and tea.
Carole visits the church temporarily holding Anthony’s ashes. It’s been 15-years since Carole has seen the urn bearing her late husband’s remains and she’s understandably anxious. The church: small, quaint and modern, is quite different from the place where Anthony was originally interned. Carole shares that her late husband was the ultimate practical joker and the traveling urn with Carole receiving the email that it was moved would have made him laugh. That’s a poignant and fun touch.
Luann de Lesseps will have you know: the Countess isn’t back – she never left! And if anyone is admonishing others for dreadful behavior it shall be her.
Last week’s Real Housewives Of New York had battle lines drawn between Carole Radziwill and Luann over residual Turks and Caicos men, plus Carole’s undefined male sexual partner and companion, Adam. However speaking of undefined sexual partners, Luann has no idea why SHE Is being blamed for Ramona Singer‘s!
Melissa reiterates that Lauren wanted Caroline Manzo to wear white to her wedding last weekend. She said Dina did come to the church but that’s it. She confirms that Joe Giudice didn’t attend. She also says that Joeyinsisted on wearing those plaid pants despite Melissa asking him to dress in all black.
I may be in the minority, but this season of Real Housewives of New York is just the bees’ knees for me. Bethenny Frankel grates on my last nerve, but I find her much more likable and down-to-earth than the Bethenny who covers the tabloids as I’m checking out at the grocery store. Dorinda Medley is a wonderful addition, simply because you never know what you’re going to get. She’s like a tamer, yet angrier, less likely to strip for fun version of Sonja Morgan. Luann de Lesseps and Heather Thomson both want to be cool, but I find them to be um, I don’t know, uncool most of the time–but entertaining nonetheless!
This crew doesn’t stew indefinitely after a blow-up (except on Twitter), and their personalities mix well together for both silly pettiness and those rare but endearing moments when you realize that some of these friendships are the real deal. Of course, Carole Radziwill has remained my favorite since she first burst on the scene, but she’s not winning points with a few folks (one in particular) after this week’s episode.
