Hell really has frozen over in Vermont since Bethenny Frankel invited Ramona Singer to the Vermont trip she hosted. So far, Ramona stayed out of the drama. The biggest issue she caused during the first episode of the trip was complaining about the room selection with Sonja Morgan.
Still, those two had nothing on Luann de Lesseps, who felt like she was entitled to some sort of bridal suite because she just got married. How does that make any sense? She only invited one of these women to her wedding and she already had numerous pre and post wedding parties. Now she wants a special room during a girls trip just because she got married. That doesn’t add up. The fuss around this wedding has gone overboard… a long time ago. Good for you, Lu, but let it go.
After the best season ever of Real Housewives of New York, this current one is not living up to last year’s glory – other than Dorinda Medley who comes through in every single episode. She went off on Sonja Morgan during that “gangster lunch” in the Bronx and gave this season some much needed life. I had no idea what she was talking about when she kept saying “clip” over and over again, but she clarified on Watch What Happens Live.
Fredrik Eklund was also in the club house for a perfect crossover of New York Bravo shows – especially since he and Bethenny Frankel have their own real estate show in the works.
Tinsley Mortimer’s been hanging around The Real Housewives Of New York for thirteen episodes, and all she has to show for it is some brown ice and a failed apartment hunt. But last night, the Bravo gods took pity/revenge on young Tinsley and threw her in the center of the drama. The true highlight, however, was Dorinda Medley putting her gangsta hat back on as she threw down with Sonja Morgan after Sonja accused her of secretly being involved in her doomed Tipsy Girl business venture last year! And I live all day, every day for Dorinda doing her weird-arm-angles-fingers-flying Back that sh*t up! rant in public.
We begin with Bethenny Frankel arriving at an Italian restaurant in the Bronx, where hopefully there’s a revolver duct taped to the toilet just in case. She wants the ladies (sans Ramona Singer) to get out of the city and experience carbs. Luann D’Agostino (are we officially calling her that now?), Carole Radziwill, Sonja, Dorinda, and Tinsley show up to take part in this social experiment. Because she’s always down for the cause, Dorinda even shows up already half in the bag.
This season on Real Housewives of New York, Ramona Singer is constantly bragging about all of the dates that she goes on, so it seems like she loves the single life and dating around, but apparently she still has a bone to pick about her divorce from Mario Singer.
Surprisingly, Ramona’s beef is not actually with her cheating ex husband. Instead she supposedly confronted a publicist about her role in the demise of her marriage which sounds like a textbook case of projection and deflection.
After all, Dorinda is the one who introduced Luann and Tom in the first place, so of course she’s going to support the newlyweds. Plus it’s really just ridiculous that Ramona is still trying to push their buttons even though they are legally married.
Bethenny also had a lot to say about the new girl Tinsley Mortimer, which is pretty surprising considering that she doesn’t have much a story line this season, but then again there’s pretty much nothing going on so far. Hopefully it picks up, but in the mean time, as her last name suggests, Bethenny has some surprisingly strong opinions about Tinsley’s return to the Big Apple.
This week’s episode was no exception since another one of his former flames took center stage. This time it was Ramona Singer’sfriend Missy who appeared in a previous episode and was clearly invited to instigate controversy. Speaking of controversy, Ramona made sure her newly renovated apartment got screen time since she invited everyone’s ex Harry Dubin to the soiree too.
