One of Bravo's original franchises may suffer from lackluster ratings but it certainly hasn't suffered from lack of drama. I'm not sure why viewers haven't connected to the storylines because I've found the combination of the ladies interesting, and the storylines – for the most part – amusing.
Ramona Singer took to twitter today to post photos of her behind-the-scenes hair and makeup and also reveal her look. It's quite different from the Ramona satin cocktail dresses of yore – and that's a good thing. Thankfully, the bang curler is still present. It's her signature look!
Kristen Taekman also prepared for her first ever Housewives reunion – it should be an experience. Photos are below!
When one goes about the admirable task of raising money to fund cancer research and puts in the extra mile to turn it in to a fun event for those invited, and then goes so far as to provide the opportunity to shop you think the guests would be occupied enough to just smile and be polite. Unfortunately LuAnn de Lesseps underestimated Aviva Drescher's need for attention. And her ignorance about what churns a woman's appetite! Answer: Her Father!
Unfortunately for our poor friend LuAnn not everyone has read Class With The Countess cover-to-cover. Aviva may have read Carole Radziwill's books but she has certainly skipped an equally important Housewives text – the ultimate guide to good behavior – because the Real Housewives of New York star behaved abominably during LuAnn's luncheon.
First Aviva decided to send text messages advertising her father George's recent three-way with a former Miss USA, and then she proceeded to talk about the inappropriate topic throughout the entire lunch. Luckily Aviva stopped long enough to at least bid on a dress, but she interrupted LuAnn's co-host's speech about her mother's cancer battle to discuss her father's battle with keeping it in his pants. As a result LuAnn is disgusted.
The ladies are still in Saratoga where Sonja's drunken meltdown culminates with a half-hearted attempt to flee wearing a shirt that does not count as a dress and absconding LuAnn de Lesseps' limo driver. Unfortunately a coveting of wine momentarily distracts her and Sonja decides to enact her payback by dropping some wine farts before forgiving the other ladies and hitting up the club.
Oh, Sonja. Did you not watch the Real Housewives of New Yorklast night? What you were is not "buzzed", it was wasted. (And according to the previews for next week things just keep going downhill for you.) Instead of denying, you should own it. We love drunk Sonja!! At least you are — normally — fun and loving as opposed to angry and ready to throw a wine glass.
Aside from claiming to have just been "buzzed', Sonja Morgan shares some interesting insights in her latest Bravo blog. And judging from the writing — she definitely wrote this herself and I totally appreciate that!
I just want to get out of the way that Aviva Drescher's father George is disgusting. Now Ramona Singer is no slouch when it comes to inappropriate comments and unfathomable rudeness, but at least Pinot mostly restricts her mouth to inserting her pinot-soaked foot in it and spilling out gaffes of astonishing social ineptitude. George, on the other hand, takes it to the level of grotesque and I am frankly insulted that Bravo expected viewers to enjoy that.
In the midst of George and Ramona's argument last night on Real Housewives of New York, she was matched level-for-level with him in trashy, inappropriate comments, although Ramona's comments are as inappropriately lewd in terms of insulting rudeness as George's are in insulting sexual harassment. I'm not going to really repeat what was said save for the fact that if I were Ramona I'd be contacting the EEOC about harassment in the workplace! Yuck and yuck and more yuck!
It would have been nice if one of these two self-righteous hubris-obsessed blowhards could have taken the highroad instead of mutually sinking to an abhorrent level, but alas… not gonna happen right? In other news Sonja Morgangot drunk – send a press release!
Ramona begins, "It seemed childish when Kristen was speaking to Heather and LuAnnabout me that Heather threw out all these negative nicknames for me. I would think they could discuss me without name calling…I really expected more from Heather, but perhaps she expected more from me in the Berkshires and felt justified."
Last night on Real Housewives of New York we bid adieu to Milou. But it was more than saying goodbye to Sonja Morgan's dog, it was about saying goodbye to toxic relationships and living in the past. In short, Sonja made the decision that she was not going to end up a modern-day Miss Havisham and was instead going to l-i-v-e as a modern-day Auntie Mame!
Kristen Taekman is in the throes of many struggles – I mean Ramona Singer maimed her and her husband is the very definition of douchelord in the dictionary – I promise! Look it up – his photo is in there.
She meets LuAnn de Lesseps and Heather Thomson for some shopping where she recaps her Ramonapology, you know here's some flowers, gotta whiz! Hamptons! Celebrities! And there was poor Kristen sitting at the table like, "but… I put on this dress. And you – you have anger management issues!" It was too late, Ramona had already downed her glass of wine? water? Water which she turned into wine? Does she have that power based on the sheer will of her fortitude? I mean how does Ramona even get a wine glass in a tea shop? Does she carry her own, in her purse, for emergency purposes? So many questions…
