Real_Housewives_NYC_finale

While some housewives seasons seemed to linger on too long (think the Real Housewives of Orange County) and some should have just been scrapped all together and replaced with a new cast (think Real Housewives of New Jersey), it seems the third season of the Real Housewives of New York City ended way too soon.

Just like that, the most amazing season ever in Bravo housewives history is over. Last night marked the 14th and final episode of the NYC season. The recap is below.

We saw Jill call Bethenny up last week to ask her out to lunch, thus bringing us to a somewhat awkward lunch meeting between the former BFFs. Seems Jill, who spent the first half of the season trying to rally up the troops her co-stars against Bethenny and failing badly at it, is now ready to make amends. Apparently, becoming BFFs with the Cuntess and a nutjob wasn’t all she thought it would be. Enters Bethenny, and Jill begins to complement the heck out of her. Jill begins to open up, and judging from Bethenny’s facial expressions, it’s pretty obvious Bethenny is O.V.E.R.I.T. Jill calls the demise of their friendship a separation, while Bethenny describes it as a divorce. Interesting choice of words there.

Bethenny makes an excellent point when she says in her interview, “I think that the tides turning on Jill is the reason that we’re sitting here having this conversation.” Bethenny then proceeds to explain to Jill why she’s in the position she is in with some of the housewives. “You create arguments and drama, and pick fights with people and count things, then you have to deal with the residual damage,” says an emotional Bethenny. And the best line of this scene is Jill saying she wants to get toxic people out of her life and then calling Alex a toxic person to which Bethenny asks, “Alex is a toxic person?” before reminding Jill that once upon a time, she also referred to her as a toxic person as well. Lunch is over and Jill asks Bethenny if she would like to get together again. We never get Bethenny’s reply, but judging from her facial expressions, the answer is pretty clear.

Next up, we see the ladies sans BRA, meet up to celebrate LuAnn’s new song, ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class.’ LuAnn finally introduces her very adorable boyfriend, Jacques Azoulay, to the housewives, and I must admit it was cute to see LuAnn act giddy and happy about her new man. According to reports, the two are still together. It was however interesting to hear LuAnn express her disappointment at Bethenny, Ramona and Alex(BRA) not showing up, when she made it a point not to show up for Ramona’s trip. LuAnn proceeds to lip-sync her song and I’m pretty certain her lips weren’t even moving at one point during the performance. And how cute was it when the cameras panned to Jacques, who was shown really grooving to the crappy performance. Ahh! To be in love.

Finally, it’s the day of the renewal and we see Ramona getting ready for her big day. Jill pays Ramona a visit, and tries to mend their toxic friendship. Interesting because Jill mentioned to Bethenny earlier that she did not want toxic people in her life. If her friendship with Ramona isn’t toxic, then I don’t know what is. The frenemies once again make up and I realize that’s all these two do. They hurt each other badly, apologize and make up. On a toxic friendship of 1 – 10, these two are about a 12. They make up once again and we can look forward to 15 more years of this frenemieship.

The guests arrive to the event and we find out Kelly did not RSVP. She however decided to be the “bigger person” again and show up to the event, even bringing gifts! I don’t speak lunatic, but I’m guessing the other time she’s referring to being the “bigger person” was during the St. John trip. Nough said.

Next we see Jill, minutes after just making up with her good friend Ramona, proceed to then bash Ramona’s event to others. Jill complains about not having any h’orderves to munch on. It’s a wonder Jill even eats, you know being that she’s a size 1 and all. We then see the “two teams” sitting on opposite sides of the room and Alex reminds us the ladies are ending the season the same way they started. In the first episode, Alex & Bethenny attended Ramona’s party on the boat/yatch, while LuAnn and Kelly skipped the event in favor of gossiping about it with Jill. Good observation by Alex.

Real Housewives of New York City

It seems time has flown fast when it comes to the unprecedented dramatic third season of the Real Housewives of New York City.

Tonight is the finale and here’s what we can expect. As Ramona prepares for the special day of her wedding renewal, she gets a last minute visit from Jill, who wants to re-hash all that went down during her surprise visit in St. John. And while Bethenny Frankel prepares for her new life by moving downtown with her fiancé Jason, she must face her past when she and Jill finally meet for lunch to discuss their broken friendship. A video preview is below.

We also reported this week that a “source” told Life&Style magazine that Jill and Bethenny are working to mending their friendship. Well according to Ramona, the story is false and Bethenny and Jill “are not friends again.”

As for the anticipated reunion, Ramona reveals it “got hectic” and that “Two people walked off. One person got up and stomped her foot!” And when it comes to Kelly’s mental well being since the her infamous breakdown in St John, Ramona says Kelly “is absolutely not” doing better. “She goes in and out,” says Ramona.

Kelly Bensimon PSAAnd since we’re on the topic of Kelly Bensimon, who continues to take a downward spiral into crazyville, especially after releasing her home-made anti-bullying PSA video (screen shot above). Must say using an important issue such as bullying to selfishly serve her own agenda is a bit disgusting. Even more disgusting considering this woman was arrested just a year ago for punching her boyfriend in the face. Seems like Kelly knows a lot about bullying.

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the 42-year-old moron mother of two, is now claiming Bravo forced her to go on the St. John trip. “I was asked by Bravo to go, I didn’t want to go,” she told AH on Wednesday. “These women are not for me. Clearly, Ramona does not like me …I went against my will and the minute I got there, it was everything I hate.”

“They’re playing a game. We’re playing two different games. I’m playing basketball and they’re playing hockey,” continued Kelly. “And they want blood.”

In other housewives news, Jill Zarin did a new interview with TV Guide, and she is now blaming Alex McCord for being turned away in St. John. Below are excepts from Jill’s interview -

“I think had Alex not cared whether I stayed or left, I could have gotten past it. But for whatever influence Alex has over Ramona right now worked… Alex wants to make herself more important on the show, and I totally respect that. And this was her way of doing it. This was her way of creating a place for herself to stay on the show. Without the drama of what she’s been doing, she really doesn’t have a place on the show. In the finale, you’ll see there’s a moment with Alex where she wants to talk to me. I just remove myself from it. I have nothing against her, I’m just not going to give her another shot at me since her history with me is to attack me unprovoked. I’ve done nothing to her. In the first two seasons I was the only one who supported her, and now all of a sudden she found this voice and wants to attack me.”

So according to delusional Jill, Alex is controlling Ramona, and that was the reason she got kicked off crazy Island. Delusional Jill also can’t fathom why Alex could possibly dislike her, despite the fact that she has spent the past two seasons of the show constantly taking digs at Alex and her family.

The preview clip of Bethenny and Jill’s meet up is below –



TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE NYC HOUSEWIVES?

jill.zarin

The bad news for the Real Housewives of New York City’s producers? There was no way in heck they could top the insanity drama of last week’s episode. The good news? Even without topping last week’s drama, last night’s show was still pretty darn great.

Now on to this week’s recap. It’s the night after the storm, and we find out Kelly has departed early after her “nervous breakthrough.” The ladies seem both tired and very relieved that Hurricane Kelly has passed through. Ramona shares that one of Kelly’s personalities Kelly left her a sweet note.

What we didn’t see on TV was that the night before (the same night Kelly went bat sh*t crazy that is) Ramona placed a call to Jill letting her know what had happened with Kelly, and asked Jill, who she believed was good friends with Kelly, to try to meet Kelly at the airport in NYC and be there for her. Bethenny also reveals in her Bravo blog that she talked to Jill that night out of concern for Kelly. According to both Bethenny and Ramona, Jill showed very little concern for Kelly. Apparently she was more preoccupied with making her own dramatic surprise entrance. Here’s what Bethenny wrote in her blog about Jill last week -

“Jill came to St. John because she wanted a grand entrance and to ensure that she wasn’t absent in three episodes. Her excuse that she came to see me was laughable. St. John is very difficult to get to and I literally lived a block away from her. Stopping by my building would have been infinitely easier. You all know the real story there.”

Ramona also chimes in this week that Jill literally lives minutes away from Bethenny, so we can scratch out wanting to make up with Bethenny from Jill’s reasons for showing up unannounced. And how interesting is it that Jill has said on more than one occasion that her reason for not wanting to make up with Bethenny was because she did not want to do it on camera. Guess she forgot the camera crews tagged along to St. Johns. Plus didn’t Jill also proclaim in an earlier episode, when Ramona tried to set up a meeting between she and Bethenny, that she hated being ambushed? So why ambush Bethenny and Alex on their trip? Hmm, things that make you wonder.

Back to the episode. The ladies are getting manis and pedis and Jill shows up. “Hiiiiiiiii,” says Jill, doing her best Kelly impersonation. The ladies are not happy and can’t even hide their displeasure at Jill’s arrival. We have some very awkward silences and a shaky Alex. I must say, I thought Alex’s and the other housewives’ reaction was a bit dramatic, but then again, you have to put it all into context. They are still recovering from Hurricane Kelly, and according to all the ladies on the trip, what we saw on TV was a very tame edited version of what really took place with Kelly. Still, must say I was a bit surprised they actually kicked Jill out. I really did not expect them to completely shut her down.

Jill is hurt, and even accuses Ramona of choosing Alex over her. Jill tweeted last night, “I could never describe what it felt like. Ramona did not even offer us a glass of water or bathroom after 9 hours to get there. My intentions were for peace. In hindsight I should not have gone.” Ramona gives us a great quote about Jill, “Sometimes she’s not based in reality. I think she’s been hanging out with Kelly too much.” I think Ramona might be onto something.

Jill leaves, and TEAM BRAS (Team Bethenny, Ramona, Alex & Sonja) continue their relaxing vacation. Got the Team BRAS acronym from Simon’s twitter, and yes I’m aware it’s quite corny. But back to the housewives, according to Ramona, the camera interviews from this episode were done a few weeks into the airing of this season. Keep that in mind when you later hear Jill’s comments about wanting to mend her friendship with Bethenny.

Alex and Sonja plan a surprise bridal shower for Bethenny and Ramona. The ladies spring out some sex toys and we find out Ramona and Alex are a bit shy when it comes to the sex toy topic.

Jill, Lulu, and Jennifer decide to meet up with Kelly to discuss the events that took place in St. Johns. I noticed something during this scene, LuAnn seemed very knowledgeable on what really happened during the trip. My guess is Jill filled her in, considering Ramona and Bethenny both acknowledged calling Jill about the events out of concern for Kelly. Hurricane Kelly arrives and begans to tell her own distorted version of the events that took place.

jill zarin and kelly bensimon

Tonight marks the 13th episode of the Real Housewives of New York City. While the Jersey franchise continues to drag at a boring slow pace, the NYC franchise is moving along rather quickly.

While the past two weeks has focused on the Kellamity known Kelly Bensimon, in tonight’s episode, Jill Zarin appears eager and ready to snatch the spotlight back from Kelly!

After Kelly’s bizarre “nervous breakthrough” (her words) last week, she decides to leave the vacation early much to the joy of the other housewives, who are likely relieved they no longer have to sleep with one eye open.

Now relaxed, Alex and Sonja throw Ramona and Bethenny a surprise bridal shower where much hilarity ensues! But back in NYC, Kelly decides to fill Jill, LuAnn and Jennifer Gilbert in on her emotional trip – will they see her side?

And finally, Jill decides to follow through with her self serving plan to steal the spotlight surprise the group on the trip, how will each of the ladies react? We’ll find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

In the meantime, below is a preview clip of Kelly telling her distorted version of what happened on the trip to Jill, LuAnn and Jennifer -


real-housewives-of-new-york-city-kelly-bensimon-goes-psycho

“The four of us are actually sane and she’s crazy, and now we’re picking on her.”Sonja Morgan

“Best episode ever & worst episode too in a way.”Simon Van Kempen.

Those are two powerful quotes. Last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York City was absolutely the best and the worst. The Hills is not real, Spencer Pratt’s alleged meltdown on the Hills is not real. What you watched on the Real Housewives of NYC last night was real, very real. Too real perhaps.

What I and other millions of viewers watched was a complete and total mental breakdown from what I will assume is a very mentally ill person. I don’t even know how to proceed with this recap. Last week’s episode was more of a Kelly Bensimon is coo coo crazy kinda thing, but somewhere along last night’s episode, Kelly being crazy took a dark turn into Kelly being mentally ill, and something about that is quite troubling.

And what’s worse than the madness we all just watched on television? Well according to Bethenny, Ramona and Alex. What was shown on TV was actually very tame in comparison to what actually took place that night. “Truth be told, what aired was very tame compared to what actually happened. I think that to air the full scope of it would terrify the viewers. We were truly terrified ourselves,” blogged Bethenny. Must say I can’t imagine kelly possibly being worse than what we just watched.

So why don’t I have any sympathy for Kelly, someone who I believe might be mentally ill, something not of her doing? Well I’m not quite sure. For one, I can’t relate to this woman in any way, shape, or form. She acts like a robot and seems to have the IQ of an 8 year old. I can’t relate and comprehend to the the way she acts or the moronic things she says. And reason number #2 why I can’t seem to muster up any sympathy is because she continued to be the aggressor and attacker in last night’s episode. She also seems to have no remorse for her insane behavior and continues to blame others. She blames Bethenny and Bravo for how she came across. She also continues to attack Bethenny, even accusing her of exploiting her father’s death for ratings. It’s funny that Kelly says she is scared of Bethenny, when in reality Bethenny should be the scared party. Kelly seems to have an unhealthy obsession with Bethenny and I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that Kelly holds Bethenny responsible for 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, her divorce, etc

Going into this vacation from hell, one would think the women would pick on Kelly and treat her badly. The irony turned out to be that these women, who are usually drama prone, seemed to genuinely want a drama free vacation, despite Kelly’s constant attempts to bring the drama. Kelly was the one who picked on the women from the get go, and made certain to attack every single one of them. The women at every single attempt tried to calm her down, be nice to her, and tried to have a good time. But Kelly would not stop, and was very combative and defensive.

Some things to point out in this episode, Kelly, while on the phone with Jill, said Bethenny’s gift bag to her was impersonal. And in case you’re wondering, this is the same gift bag with her initials on it. Evidently the lunatic in Kelly can’t grasp that this was an attempt by Bethenny to make amends. Kelly, who has breast implants, bad wonky ones at that, then goes on to make fun of Bethenny’s “Fake D tits,” thus giving us our first pot meet kettle moment.

And then it’s breakfast time and Kelly decides to bring a complaints pad to the ladies telling them to write down their complaints like they do in the fourth grade. Huh what? Kelly has offered to take photos of the ladies, but Bethenny decides to skip out on the crazy show. During the photo shoot, Kelly creepily tells Alex to channel her son Johan while trying to take sexy bikini pictures.

Moving on to the dinner from hell. Kelly who is already channeling a nut with her uncombed hair, decides to talk on her cell phone during dinner in front of the ladies, which rubs Ramona the wrong way. Once again, the ladies attempt to make nice with Kelly, who continues to take jabs and once again make mention of Bethenny being or not being a chef. Kelly then mentions in her interview that Bethenny is always on defense and is psychotic. And thanks to the psych class I took sophomore year in college, I can confidently proclaim this is what is known as “Projection.”

kelly bensimon crazy

Tonight marks the 12th episode of this season’s the Real Housewives of New York City, as the vacation from hell continues.

First things first, how amazing is the above photo of Kelly Bensimon? It’s like she’s saying lock me up and take me away to the nut house! Just kidding, but what’s really sad is that the phrase”Kelly Bensimon Crazy” was one of the biggest searches on the web this past week.

So how does Kelly feel about being labeled “crazy?” Well Kelly had the following to say to E! News, “Enjoy it,” she said with a manic laugh. “Have fun with it because that’s going to make my name bigger and bigger and give me a bigger platform to be charitable.” Yes because in Kelly lala cartwheel land, being labeled as crazy is a good thing and will help her become more charitable. Got it.

Moving on to tonight’s episode. We get to see the tension between Bethenny and Kelly reach an all-time high, as the two hash it out over a no-holds-barred dinner! Kelly calls Jill to confide about her fight with Bethenny. Jill, who is itching to patch things up with her once-BFF Bethenny, informs her underdog LuAnn of her plans to fly down and “surprise” the group. LuAnn, who ofcourse wants to keep Jill all to herself tries to convince her not to go. Will Jill take LuAnn’s advice and stay put? We’ll find tonight.

A video preview is below. Bethenny tries to make amends with Kelly by giving her a gift bag with her name on it. Nutty Kelly freaks out and thinks Bethenny is trying to “kill” her. Watch the madness below -

The Real Housewives of New York City 3

Being on a reality show like the Real Housewives of New York City is a pretty tough task and not for everyone. In my opinion, there are three main criteria in which one should absolutely not take part in anything “reality tv.” A – If you’re insane, B – If you’re crazy, and C – If you’re emotionally unstable. And when you happen to fall under all of the above, then you should absolutely under any circumstances not put your life on television. Unfortunately for Kelly Bensimon, the damage has been done. More on Kelly later.

Now onto to the recap in what is absolutely without a doubt the best episode EVER from the Bravo housewives franchise.

LuAnn – Fortunately for LuAnn, this had to be the episode where Kelly went bat sh*t crazy, thus taking most of the attention way from her tragic singing. And how much did she pay this producer to literally just lie to her over and over and over? After the whole Kim Zolciak singing debacle, I cannot grasp why someone who can’t hold a note would want to humiliate themselves on national television. It’s quite baffling to me. And while the end result of her song sounds decent, I can’t help but feel she is about two decades behind in her music. Perhaps she could have had a big hit in the early 90s.

Now onto the trip. We get to see Ramona and Sonja leave for the bachelorette trip to St John. While in the car, Ramona mentions that she is not surprised Jill decided to skip the trip because the trip is “not about her,” and when it’s not about Jill, she doesn’t like to participate. And of course since Jill isn’t going, her lapdog/underdog LuAnn won’t make it either.

The ladies finally all land in St. John and we find out Bethenny has just buried her father and is a bit raw emotionally. Almost immediately Kelly begins to unravel. Buckle up for the ride folks cause it’s a whole lot of crazy coming up!

The ladies are riding in a car on the way to their yacht and Kelly mentions she doesn’t eat pretzels because she does not eat processed foods. Okay makes sense, that is until she mentions her love for gummi worms, okay no longer making sense. Ramona asks her if she’s six, and Bethenny comments in her interview that “Gummi bears don’t come from the vine, those aren’t bears you see in the Bronx zoo.” In her interview, Alex also feels the NEED to mention that this is the first time she’s taken a non business trip without her kids since she became a mother. Thanks for sharing Alex, I’m a better person for knowing that lil tidbit.

Right away, you start to see the tension between Bethenny and Kelly, I would say most of it coming from Kelly, who seemed to have a bone to pick with Bethenny. Bethenny on this trip seemed more quiet and subdued, for Bethenny standards at least, so it was interesting to see Kelly keep escalating the tension. I would say Kelly was the “aggressor” this go around.

The ladies put on their bikinis and it’s time to eat. Not Crazy – Kelly shares she doesn’t like to eat in a bikini, and then goes on to get a cover up. Crazy – Kelly completely losing it once the ladies started talking about Jill. While it’s understandable that Kelly does not want to talk about Jill behind her back, she should have voiced that and then kept quiet. Trying to control what the ladies felt and said about Jill made no sense. Kelly reveals that she’s “normal” and the rest are “abnormal.” Bethenny tries to explain  some things to her, during which Kelly declares that she doesn’t care. Fair enough, to which Bethenny tells her she shouldn’t comment if she doesn’t care. Good advice considering Sonja was just as well sitting there, keeping quiet because she didn’t want to join in on the Jill convo. Kelly then makes her 2nd moronic comment of the night, when she accused the ladies of making “lemons out of lemonades.” Uh what Kelly? Bethenny explains to her that what she meant to say was “making a mountain out of a mole hill” as lemons out of lemonades means making something good out of something bad, which wouldn’t apply to the conversation being had at the moment.

Okay seriously, is this woman a complete and total moron? It’s quite baffling to me that someone her age could be this idiotic. Especially someone who claims to hold an English degree from the prestigious Columbia University. And by the way, it was revealed last year that she didn’t actually go to Columbia, but instead took classes at Columbia Extension College, something anyone can do. Bethenny said it best later on in this episode when she said Kelly is the most “unintelligent human being” she’s ever had the pleasure of being around. Couldn’t agree more. I’m pretty certain I’m losing brain cells just listening to her. I can’t even call her a bimbo. Her IQ would need to be about 100 points higher to be on bimbo status. She’s simply a moron.

Back to the recap. Kelly then continues to yell, and tries to make a grand exit through a closed glass door. While leaving, she snaps, “You guys are sick, it’s like you’re demented, see ya!” Ramona laments that Kelly doesn’t like to “feel” and I think she might have a point. Moments later, Kelly returns from her self imposed “time-out.” It’s so interesting to see Kelly being so loyal to Jill considering just how badly Jill treated her last year, especially at the reunion show. Something tells me had the tables been turned, Jill would have bad mouthed Kelly along with the ladies in a heartbeat.

nyc-trip

Tonight’s all new episode of the Real Housewives of New York City is going to be epic for two reasons.  First, the housewives go on a vacation and we get to see Kelly Bensimon really lose her cool.  As it that wasn’t good enough, we finally get to hear Countess LuAnn “singing” in the studio.

Coming up first tonight, we see the housewives (excluding Jill and her underdog LuAnn) take a housewives-style trip to St. John in celebration of Ramona’s upcoming vow-renewal.  Ramona surprises the ladies with a 5-star yacht as the accommodations. Things however take a bad turn when Kelly and Bethenny butt heads after Bethenny decides to open up about her father’s passing.

On the other side of town, Jill’s underdog has for some reason decided to embark on a music career and heads on to the studio to record her song - ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class or Talent.

A video of LuAnn “singing” in the studio is below. You can also click here to listen to the finished and heavily auto-tuned version. And oh yeah, LuAnn will be performing the song live tonight on Andy Cohen‘s late-night show Watch What Happens Live (11 p.m. EST).
