Bravo has been having trouble with Real Housewives of New York for quite some time. They fired four ladies, hired three new ones and then waited over a year to air the sixth season. In between there was a slew of hiring and casting drama that included the Housewives going on strike!
Now ratings are low as viewers have seemingly lost interest in the Pinot and Commado show – or they forgot the show existed during the long hiatus. With that comes a rumor that Bravo is looking to do another sweeping recast and basically clear the deck once more.
After all the time she spent in Montana isolated with Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer (aka Commando and Pinot), Carole Radziwill needs a break. Big time. You can feel her frustration seeping out of her Bravo blog. You could feel my frustrations as I screamed at the TV for them to shut it. And put the wine down. Advice Carole echoes.
Carole admits that she grew tired of the drinking, complaining, going commando, and mostly that neither Sonja nor Ramona had a nice thing to say to Kristen Taekman. But most frustrating to Carole was that Sonja didn't seem to care that she hurt LuAnn de Lesseps' feelings. Let's break down what she has to say!
First of all – the obvious. "Sonja is drinking. Again," writes Carole. "Sonja brings up a sore subject. Again." Carole explains just why LuAnn was hurt by Sonja entertaining the facialist's gossip.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies continued to terrorize Montana like a plague. The beautiful surroundings of wild Montana shrank beneath the force of their bickering, bad behavior, and crying orgasms. And Cowboy Paul stroked his gun lovingly and thought, thank goodness I've got this to protect me in the apocalypse.
In the luxury accommodations, Tweedle Drunk and Tweedle Do Me are bored and suffering from cabin fever. Carole Radziwill is suffering from being too long in the asylum – serves her right for trying to observe crazies in their native environment. To assuage her boredom Sonja Morgan invites the sexy (and very young) ranch hand over to clean out the kitchen while she swans around in a negligee swatting at him with a toilet brush. I am positive she molested him by the seductive light of the fridge. Carole lost her breakfast.
Sonja is bitter that they'll be spending another night at the ranch instead of out in the town sizing up the locals – there could be hot and swarthy cowboys ready for a Mrs. Robinson adventure with a big city gal. Sonja apparently thinks Reese Weather-spoon is out there, just waiting to have fun. Instead Kristen Taekman has planned a chef to come and make dinner for the girls. Sonja is over personal chefs – she does this everyday! With what budget? I wasn't aware that Groupon offered this?
The Real Housewives of New York co-starsLuAnn de Lessepsand Heather Thomson (our favorites this season!) sat down with Buzzfeed to dish about everything from their shoe size to Jacques breaking his nose in tae kwon do! The ladies hit on many of their Housewives-related favorites and it has us questioning their sanity a little.
LuAnn is first to dish that Melissa Gorga is her favorite singing Housewife! When asked what her favorite original song was, LuAnn responded "The girl from New Jersey, Melissa Gorga. She’s not bad. If I have to pick one." Heather remained loyal to Lu and said, “Money Can’t Buy You Class”! I mean, who can beat “Money Can’t Buy You Class”?? Any LuAnn de Lesseps song, she’s the only singing housewife for me."
Admittedly, I do this every time a newbie joins a franchise. I fall in major like with the fresh face only to come back and bite my words a few seasons later. Real Housewives of New York is no different. I love Kristen Taekman. I adore that she's friends with Carole Radziwill and (Holla!) Heather Thomson. She's even a good sport with LuAnn deLesseps (who I like more now that she's in smaller doses) and Sonja Morgan. Best of all? She finds Aviva Drescher to be a total nut job…and, truth be told, I was quite the Aviva fan her freshman season. Hey, at least I realize my shortcomings, right?
Beginning her Bravo blog, Kristen jokes, "Yup, the 'new girl' is taking all these fancy NY Ladies to Montana. Naturally, Carole and I need a wax. Funny, so Carole and I spoke that morning and go figure, we both had waxes that day at the same place so we decided to go together! Don't all girlfriends go to hold their friend's hands while they get their kitty waxed? Ha ha! I roll in wax for real. I wax everything! Arms, legs, mustache, brows, kitty…TMI I know — but after all, this is a reality show! So we are waxed and ready for Montana! PS. Carole is a natural blonde who knew?? #shhhhhhhh" Bwahahaha! TMI, Kristen. T.M.I.
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies headed to the wild, wild west in Montana. Kristen Taekman organized the trip and like the over-eager rookie she is, she expected everyone to be jumping with glee at the prospect of spending a week at a dude ranch far, far away from any actual dudes. Now you know Sonja T. Morgan was going through withdrawal something terrible – something that even a pair of cotton granny panties couldn't cure.
Before the ladies left Aviva Drescherdecided she needed a little attention. Because you know – Meviva. Aviva had suddenly came down with a rampant case of asthma. She's allergic to horses, and hay, and long plane rides with women she does not like, and best-selling books, and being away from Saint Reid, savoir of upper east side princesses with daddy issues. Clearly Aviva is not allergic to asses – I mean she's able to be around George.
