I still think Bethenny had to tell Luann, but I think the way Bethenny did it was calculating and nefarious. I still think Luann is an idiot for putting her heart and dignity on the line for an odious schmuck like Tom, who doesn’t even have the decency to do his bad deeds in secret like every other cheating spouse of a Real Housewife. Even Mario had more discretion – he at least chose some other-rate fitness emporium unfancy enough to meet the demands of Ramona Singer‘s hubris!
Luann maintains, “I know in my heart of hearts that he loves me.”
“I’m not going to let a stupid kiss ruin the rest of my life,” adds Luann. “He screwed up. What he did was wrong. But this wasn’t premeditated. It wasn’t an affair. It was a mistake.” No, one kiss won’t ruin Luann’s life, but one kiss leads to two kisses, because he knows he can always get away with it…
While we haven’t seen the full fallout from the scandalous photos yet, as Bravo loves to keep laying out the drama over the course of a few episodes, Bethenny says no way if she had a chance to do it all over. “I think, frankly, that they both are OK with the way that they are living their lives and I wouldn’t do it again. Now, I wouldn’t tell her again.”
Sonja Morgan has had a difficult season of Real Housewives Of New York. She’s struggled with friendships failing, accusations about her drinking, business endeavors, and the blow-up of Luann and Tom in her face, but she won’t let it get her down – after all: while the other girls drown in their misery, Sonja will continue being the sexy J that stirs the drink!
Yet, Sonja admits she’s “disappointed with the girls. I think they need to get their own lives instead of looking at mine. They’re very self-serving.”
To tell or not to tell? To reveal a deeply humiliating personal secret on Real Housewives Of New York or to be forced into having a deeply humiliating personal secret revealed about yourself? These are the quandaries a lady of Bravo faces as Luann de Lesseps was made to reconcile with both the ghosts of her past and the ghost of her future thanks to a so-called benevolent Bethenny Frankel.
Bethenny is beside herself that Luann has the audacity to be so outrageously happy over a man she’s known for two minutes. Which is sort of hilarious considering that Bethenny got knocked up approximately 5 days after meeting Jason Hoppy then shoved him down the aisle 5 months later!
Dorinda Medley has a lot of explaining to do, and she takes the opportunity to do so in her blog this week.
It’s a long one, folks! So we’re breaking down the highlights of Dorinda’s very complicated take on Miami, including her admiration of Jules Wainstein for “finding her voice,” and a warning that the sh*t is about to hit the fan with Bethenny Frankel and Luann De Lesseps! (Yes, Dorinda, we already have our hazmat suits zipped up.)
