Luann de Lesseps andSonja Morgan room-mating it up this season on Real Housewives of New York is my new favorite thing about the Real Housewives. These two co-habitating is going to be comedic gold. (We need more franchises to try this out!) In her new blog this week, The Countess talks about life at Sonja’s townhouse and so much more.
There’s a lot of Kool-Aid drinking going on in the Real Housewives this week! First it was happening over in Beverly Hills and now it has spread to NYC. Gives new meaning to “there’s something in the water.” Luann writes, “As I watched this episode and heard what some of the ladies had to say about me, it became apparent which girls are my true friends and which are not. With Bethenny, once she stops talking to you, she starts talking about you. She’s obviously been drinking the Carole Kool-Aid.”
The episode awakens amid the chaotic domestic scene of Jules Wainstein‘s morning. I presume the live-in nanny doesn’t do childcare before 9am? Jules struggles to make coffee for husband Michael, then announces she’s eating half his breakfast, and then puts both kids in the bathtub, even though they’re perilously perched on being late to school – as always. Not that Jules cares. Paying tuition entitles her to reinvent the clock, so she can be an hour late everyday if she wants to. It’s Jules‘ world and we’re all living on Jules time – it’s hair flip o’clock somewhere!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
Above: Responding to negative comments about her body, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna shared, “Chill Bitches. My body is a healthy body. I am proud of this body. It is strong and healthy. We come in all shapes and sizes, body shaming is wrong on every level. It’s a terrible message to send our daughters. #AllBodiesAreBeautiful #BeYou”
Luann de Lesseps just wants everyone to be cool, like the Countess – which is definitely not going to happen on this season of Real Housewives of New York. Despite all the impending calamities, which have already started to unfurl amid our tempestuous ladies, Luann is excited to focus on new drama and let go of the old!
“We’re back stronger than ever!” gushes Luann after the season 8 premiere. Since we last saw her Luann’s son Noelle went off to college, and Luann decided to move apartments. In the process she’s residing in her fabulous Hamptons home, but what’s a city girl to do when her city abode is no occupado? Why shack up with Sonja “Sexy J” Morgan, of course!

Not shockingly, the Bravo franchise that at one time seemed beneath Skinnygirl maven Bethenny is now regaling in her return. She makes the show great. And you don’t have to trust me on that one…she’s the one who thinks it! I kid, I kid. Bethenny may be the expert on everything, but it’s the ladies’ special blend of drama that makes the show fun to watch.
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New York. We met new Housewife Jules Wainstein. The original B of Bravo, Bethenny Frankel, also returned, and whew, was she some kinda mouthy! Bethenny apparently sees herself as the reverse fortune teller of RHONY; she won’t tell you your hopeful future, but with condescending judgement she will point out everything that’s wrong with you, your life, your past, and your overall way of being.
Bethenny is also the ‘Party Police’ this season – obviously replacing the woman she once loved to hate, Heather Thomson, who gathered her big-girl shaping panties and fled this Skinnygirl bar.
Things begin in Bethenny’s new apartment. Hurrah – she’s no longer homeless! The new place is nice, but in that blandly generic HGTV design show sort of way. Dorinda Medley visits to gawk over Bethenny’s Traum Safe, as if it’s something Dorinda couldn’t afford to install in her own pad. Bethenny and Dorinda have become close, but there is one major issue: Bethenny doesn’t approve of John. Like at all.
