This season of Real Housewives of New Yorkis just too good. We were blessed with that arrest footage of Luann de Lesseps in Palm Beach. Luann went straight from her arrest to rehab and now she’s back with the cast in tonight’s episode. If anyone deserves to be holding an apple in the center of the opening credits, it’s Luann. Sorry, Bethenny Frankel. As compelling as that feud with Carole Radziwillis, Bethenny’s other scenes are essentially a Skinnygirl infomercial.
For the past two seasons it has been all “about Tom” and now Luann’s ex-husband Tom D’Agostinois a main topic of conversation yet again during tonight’s episode. I cannot be the only one who misses the constant Tom chatter from seasons past. Or maybe, I am. I don’t care. Any episode that revolves around Luann and Tom in any capacity is something I’m looking forward to.
You know what they say, “the costars that take photos together stay together.” Well, no one actually says that, but it does make some sense. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars spent some quality time with their castmates (and their fellow network celebs) this week. And of course, they documented it all on Instagram.
Carole starts off, “Bethenny came in hot, straight from telling her driver Kevin a bunch of nonsense. Imagine a friend texting ‘I miss you’ and sending cute pictures of the both of you only to get a ‘that’s a lot’ reply. To believe her story you’d have to believe I was the sh–tiest person on Earth. I may not be huggy, but I’m not sh–ty either. There is Bethenny’s version of events, and then there is reality.”
It seems like (almost) every Housewife is turning on Bethenny Frankel this season on Real Housewives of New York. Most of the ladies have reached a breaking point and I don’t blame them. From the constant Skinnygirl promotion to the condescending comments, it seems like a lot to take on.
Then again, they are all paid to hang out, so I don’t feel that bad for anyone in this social circle. Plus, now we are blessed with some hilarious Bethenny-inspired shade from Dorinda Medley.
It is fair to say that Luann de Lesseps’ popularity is at an all-time high. Luann is more revered than ever before after her divorce, drunken arrest, and rehab stint.
It can be said that Luann made a “comeback,” but was she ever really down for the count? She just bounced back so quickly with the cabaret show and sobriety-induced weight loss. It really doesn’t seem like she ever missed a beat.
Not only is Carole standing up to her former BFF during the episodes, but she is also eviscerating the self-proclaimed Queen B online every week when a new episode airs. The Season 10 reunion is going to be insane. Carole and Bethenny will be on opposite couches for the first time in a while and Carole has definitely earned that first chair next to Andy Cohen.
