Rumors are swirling that the Real Housewives of New York City's wine glass throw meltdown was not as bad as it looked/sounded on TV. I don't think that it would come as a surprise to anyone to know that parts of reality TV are edited for dramatic effect. Now we have sources saying that the wine glass throw heard round the world was not as bad as it appeared.
A source tells Tom Murro, "Bravo adds sound effects to things. The production company added the loud sound of shattered glass when it was PLASTIC NOT GLASS that was thrown by Ramona at Kristen. And that she was not cut, but underneath her lip was only slightly bruised from the plastic glass." Very interesting….
Just a little background if you have been living under a rock. The Real Housewives of New York City made the trek to Heather Thomson's retreat in the Berkshire. Drama started early when Kristen Taekman splashed Ramona Singer with a little water, in turn Ramona threw wine on her — for the second time in two episodes — followed by chucking the glass at her face. Then after a sort-of apology, Ramona used her childhood trauma to flee the vacation. Even though she had already been filmed packing and calling a friend for a ride to the Hamptons before her 'breakdown' that made her want to leave. Classy!
A little backstory if you have not seen this week's episode of the Real Housewives of New York City. Heather Thomson takes all the girls to her gorgeous home in the Berkshires for a relaxing weekend. Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan are complaining from the very beginning. I was actually shocked at how these two were behaving. Did they miss that lesson on normal decency and proper behavior in someone else's home?
But things went from bad to worse when the ladies went out on the lake in a couple of canoes….
