There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, the cast went speed dating. A man with a red scarf purposely went to that event just so he could talk to Bethenny. Ramona Singer went out of her way to get that same red scarf-wearing man a tequila. Meanwhile, Carole’s friend (who orchestrated the event) invited that guy with the intent of setting him up with Carole. Oops.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
First Luann makes sure to let Carole Radziwill know that rehab wasn’t some dream vacation. “After my experience in Florida, I can assure you that there is a huge difference between a spa like the Mayflower and rehab! Carole Radziwill thinks it would be “heaven” to stay in a facility for 28 days talking it out, yet if I had to choose, I’d pick the spa every time!!!”
After ten seasons on the Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona Singer is still keeping us entertained. The RHONY star is fancying herself as a bit of a peacemaker on the show this season and reveals how she’s helping to soften the ladies during times of conflict. She also shares her favorite filming moment and talks about the stress of filming a reality show. And, among other things, Ramona reveals what she is looking for in an ideal man these days. Read on for all things Ramona, including her thoughts on that cast boat ride from hell.
On the Daily Dish podcast, Ramona shares whether she misses filming the show after a season wraps, “I love my downtime. We basically film five months. The reunion really is only one day, and that’s in July. So we really we have off seven months. Not a bad gig.” Does she find herself anxious to get back to filming? “it’s a double-edged sword because when we work, it’s really intense and can be emotionally jarring because we’re seven women that like each other but at times we really go at each others’ throats, so it can be quite emotionally disturbing. So, when we’re not filming it’s kind of nice to take a break from everyone and just see them now and then. You’re under different kinds of business pressures. It’s a good balance. When we start filming again, am I excited about it? Absolutely. I have fun when I film with all these ladies and I always say I’ll continue to do the show as long as I have fun because you have to love what you do to be good at it.”
Sonja Morgan always has a good time, especially when she’s an interview guest! Sonja loves to spill the tea and she delivers once again in her latest Q&A with Bravo’s Daily Dish podcast! Sonja reveals changing friendships in the Real Housewives of New York cast, talks about her struggle to choose between Frenchie and Rocco, and weighs in on her issues with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer – and so much more!
Sonja on how she’s doing, “ask me that after you’ve watched another 22 or 23 episodes. You’ll get to see a lot of T&A in the cabaret!” She laughs, “If you don’t go to the cabaret you’ll see me half naked elsewhere, I’m sure. If you come to the gay party, I don’t know what episode that is”
On not being surprised that Luann de Lesseps‘ cabaret is taking off and doing so well. “Not at all, I knew Luann way back when. She was always doing improv and I remember my first time on Andy Cohen with Lu (on WWHL) She was doing her disco hits and I told Andy she should just be doing her Broadway, ‘You should hear it, Andy, it’s amazing.’ I remember saying that and here she is full circle, belting them out.”
