Jill Zarin has mellowed out and found her zen. Seriously. Jill has a sanguine new attitude about her time on Real Housewives Of New York, and accepts that life, relationships, and reality TV move on. “I do love it,” Jill says of the show, “and I know it’s so bad for me! It’s like smoking, you wanna to smoke, but you can’t because you know it’s bad for you!”
Although she’s quick to point out that when it comes to RHONY drama – past and present – “You know what they say: All roads lead back to Jill Zarin!” Touché!
It is pretty clear that Luann de Lesseps is one of those girls who thinks they are having a wedding year instead of a wedding day. Everything and anything will be all about Lu’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino. This is the happiest I’ve ever seen her. Not that I actually know her, obviously, but I have been watching Real Housewives of New York from the beginning, so I feel like I do.
We all know Luann has been married before – hence the countess title, but she is just over the moon about her second wedding and she has no qualms when it comes to talking about how excited she is for the upcoming nuptials. Luann is so pumped for the big day that she actually plans to wear more than one outfit.
I have always loved Dorinda Medley, but it is so hard to figure out what her motivation is when she stirs the pot with the Real Housewives of New York cast. I can’t tell if she just wants everything to be out in the open or if she just wants to incite drama for the show. I go back and forth with it and wonder if the ladies are going to call her out during the reunion episodes.
It’s very clear where Carole Radziwill stands on this one. She is clearly not a fan of Dorinda or her antics.
Luann may be madly in love with Tom, but she spends an awful lot of time defending him since Tom seems to have spread his love all around Manhattan, and her co-stars, who also partook in Tom‘s party favors, aren’t doing Luann’s engagement any favors by continuing to disparage it. Once again, Lu is fed up!
Even though I have to, I don’t really want to discuss the ruminating super drama between Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Instead I’d like to focus on the positive and give a prodigious shout-out to Sonja Tremont Morgan, a lady who has turned over a new leaf and out flew a butterfly. Hats off – designer hats with no repairs, that is – to Sonja for being Real Housewives Of New York‘s class-act last night!
The ladies are all yachting around while talking in circles about Tom. Tom-T-Tom-Tom-TOOOM. Poor Sonja has a harness on her dress to holster in her heart nice and tight. But that thing looks uncomfortable and like her boobs were begging for as much mercy as her poor little broken pitter-patter. Sonja admits to Carole Radziwill and Ramona Singer that, well, maybe she’s a little nervous about seeing Tom because well, maybe, she had deeper feelings for him than she let on, and well, Luann is just not really interested in addressing this. Furthermore, Sonja had no idea that Lu knew she and Tom were a thing.
