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’slitterbox 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.
Happy Monday! Here’s a look at what the reality stars have been up to – a new reality star photo gallery! 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?
Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer attended the CMT awards last week in Nashville.
Brandi Glanville, Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Shervin Roohparvar, Eden Sassoon and more were on hand for the Boobs for Babes live bachelor auction at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. Also included in our latest hot photo gallery: Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Tom D’Agostino, Sundy Carter and more!
Here’s a new roundup of the reality TV stars social media photos to kick off the weekend. Above: Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, and Brittany Cartwright at the showing of La La Land at the Rooftop Cinema Club. Katie shared, “La La Land with my babes!”
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.
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.”
