Luann De Lesseps

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: A Countess No More

After months of deflection, derailment, and Tom D’Agostino’s devilish doings, Countess Luann de Lesseps finally married the man who offers her the lifestyle of her dreams. Yes, Mrs. Luann D’Agostino is now a commoner! Jet setting to Palm Beach, vacationing in Aspen, lolling around the balcony of her Manhattan penthouse wondering whether she should eat another peeled grape. In short, she’s just like us! If we were filthy rich and married to questionable dudes. But the ladies of The Real Housewives Of New York aren’t quite done questioning Luann’s every move, and they have another chance to openly gawk at her happiness when she invites them to a post-wedding celebration.

Speaking of parties, Bethenny Frankel hosts one of her own – but guess who’s not invited? Okay, we all know it’s Ramona Singer. Because homegirl went NUCLEAR last week in the Berkshires and is persona non grata to both Bethenny and Dorinda Medley now. Poor Dorinda is still resurrecting her house from the Ramonsoon that all but destroyed the joint, not to mention Sonja Morgan jacking her PJ’s in broad daylight! There’s also moving afoot. As in: Adam moving out of Carole Radziwill’s litterbox apartment, and Frenchie moving into Sonja’s townhouse. Tinsley Mortimer, as always, is left pondering the life choices that brought her to this tragic rung on the downwardly mobile socialite ladder.

Is Jill Zarin actually making a comeback? I’ve read her name more in the past couple weeks than I have in the past few years.

From hanging out with Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley during her Real Housewives of New York cameo appearance to her bevy of interviews, Jill Zarin seems to be everywhere these days. And now she is in London…with Lindsay Lohan. Jill’s daughter Ally Shapiro was actually her main companion for the London trip, but they did make time to hang with the former child star.

Bethenny Frankel attended the 17th annual Midsummer Night Drinks, benefitting God’s Love We Deliver (one of Joan Rivers’ favorite charities) in Southampton, posing with Dan Wright. Is it just me or does he bear a striking resemblance to Jason?

After a season and a half of Real Housewives of New York being the Tom D’Agostino show, Luann de Lesseps got a slight break when Ramona Singer went bat shit crazy, ripped into Bethenny Frankel, and then tore down Dorinda Medley’s walls.

I’m hoping the rest of the season focuses more on Ramona’s craziness and less on Tom. Don’t get me wrong, I think last season was one of the best (if not the best), but that’s because Tom was constantly doing something new and scandalous. Now people are just harping on the old incidents and I’m done with it. If Tom does something new, then I’m all for talking about it, but if Luann does not care about Tom‘s previous antics, then neither do I and I’m so done listening to the same thing over and over again.

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.

The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Black Out And Get Out

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s the bitter sour patch kid in Kelly Bensimon’s gummy bear bag! Okay, it’s just Jill Zarin trying to make herself happen again – but still! For long-time Real Housewives Of New York fans, the return of Jill feels kind of epic, if short lived. Also epic is the throw down in the Berkshires, starring Ramona Quimby Age 8 Singer and Bethenny Frankel, who decide to further impose upon Dorinda Medley’s gracious hosting by getting naked and mud wrestling in her parlor. Well, nearly.

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.

As The Real Housewives Of New York returned to the Berkshires, so did the unhinged craziness. So, maybe it’s Dorinda Medley’s home that’s to blame? Bethenny Frankel seems to think so! She jokes, “It’s not me. It’s the Berkshires. Here we go…I mean three years in a row is a record.”

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.”
