I have no idea who was asking for this, but Jill Zarin returned to Real Housewives of New York last night because she is thirsting for relevancy such close friends with Luann de Lesseps. I’m sure she was hoping for a big comeback, but the OG cast member truly underwhelmed. The only major soundbite she provided was her belief that Ramona Singer is “unhappy.”
I’m not sure what Jill would know about anyone on this show since she isn’t really friends with them, but she had no issue psychoanalyzing her frienemy. Now she is explaining the comment that she solely made for attention and by “explaining,” I mean she’s backtracking from her own words and sucking up to Bethenny Frankel again.
Bethenny does pull a spread eagle while screaming at Ramona though, which sort of feels like a low rent Wonder Woman move gone dangerously awry. And Ramona uncorks the long-buried demons of Scary Island as she eviscerates Bethenny like never before. Her motto last night: When they go low, I go Pinot! In essence, the drama this week is served upside down, with a twist of crazy. Just the way the Housewives like it.
In their blogs, Bethenny and Luann de Lesseps break down the drama, and share some insight on just how differently they see the world. Though Bethenny still may think Luann is making a huge mistake in marrying Tom D’Agostino, she admits, “Luann had strength. I felt badly, and who knows if I was projecting. I just wanted to make sure she felt safe to jump on a lifeboat if she needed to.”
I think I can speak for the better part of The Real Housewives of New York viewing audience when I kindly request that they make the Tom D’Agostino storyline just STOP already. (Please? We will do anything – we will watch Sonja Morgan go in for vaginal rejuvenation number two! We will welcome Jill Zarin back with open arms! We will watch that friggin election party again – okay, too far.) Because when it comes to this dusty old Tom story, I have to channel Ramona Singer here and ask, are you kidding me? Are you KIDDING me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!
Alas, I regret to inform you that despite our better wishes, the ladies decide it’s still a wise idea to confront Luann de Lesseps about her upcoming nuptials to dear, openly-cheating Tomfor the seven hundredth time. In this week’s installment of Are You Sure You Want To Be A Bride, Luann?Ramona leads the charge, with Bethenny Frankel throwing some tears and bizarre begging in for good measure. Then, Ramona and Bethenny go at it head to head in what may be the final round of their friendship. This all occurs after Ramona nearly literally turns herself into the cartoon character version of her former, batsh*t self. So, strap in!
Things got a little rockier between Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer last week on The Real Housewives of New York City. Tinsley explains her side of the drama over answering the door and abusing assistant privileges.
She starts off by sharing what a lovely job Dorinda Medley did when readying her home for the holidays. “After hearing so much about it from Sonja, being invited to the Berkshires was like finding Willy Wonka’s golden ticket…OR getting invited to the North Pole. I’m seriously convinced Dorinda’s day job is being Mrs. Claus, and Blue Stone Manner is actually Santa’s work shop. Her house is gorgeous, particularly with the abundance of beautiful Christmas decorations everywhere.”
Luann de Lesseps is weighing in on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York. The new Mrs. D’Agostino is convinced that her co-stars have nothing better to do than dish on her relationship with Tom. Lu is pretty sure that Dorinda Medley is a victim of the other women filling her head with lies. Bethenny Frankel also shares her own two cents, revealing that she’s pretty sure Dorinda’s Berkshire home induces the crazy in everyone!
Lustarts her blog, “What should have been a relaxing girls’ getaway to celebrate Dorinda’s birthday and the holidays somehow turned into relationship intervention. Don’t these women have anything else to talk about besides my upcoming nuptials? I am two weeks away from walking down the aisle, and the girls can’t seem to let go of their obsession with Tom.”
