The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras.
There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.
Not everyone is cut out to be a Real Housewife and there’s nothing wrong with that. In all honesty, it might even be a compliment. Sometimes Bravo casts women who are just way too normal to be on reality TV. There’s nothing wrong with them as humans, but they are just not fit to expose their lives on reality television.
I have no idea why some of these people were cast, but it happened and we all had to sit through it. Most of the Real Housewives ladies are amazing, then there are some that were just way too boring.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the subject on everyone’s lips was blood and Luann de Lesseps. Does Luann have blood on her hands for ruining the group in her refusal to play the role of Bethenny Frankel‘s sycophant? Well, it appears none of that matters quite so much in the wake of Bethenny‘s health issue.
I don’t even think Luann made an appearance last night, but she was revived with her own ‘Before They Were Housewives’ special which aired after the show and my has she had quite a fascinating life.
Anyway, unfortunately, both Bethenny and Jules Wainstein spent their off-hours at Lenox Hill Hospital getting their vaginal areas investigated and mended. More on that later…
I feel like no matter how “cool” Luann claims to be in regard to Tom getting with two other cast members, it is still weird. And I can’t imagine Sonja and Ramona thought it was cool either. Since Sonja got with Tom first, I wondered if Ramona followed suit to get revenge on her frienemy turned enemy, but apparently she had no idea about Sonja’s history with Tom.
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: Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King Edmonds shared, “I freaking love @pamandgela – you’ve seen me in their stuff in tons of pics. Owned by two badass women – they founded Juicy Couture and have not slowed down since. Love my girl Pam!”
What is with the women on Real Housewives of New York constantly excluding each other from trips this season? Do they not understand how this works? The trips are for the viewers, not the cast. They ALL need to go, otherwise it’s just not going to be as good. Needless to say, I was pretty peeved when I saw Bethenny Frankel asking the cast for a vote to decide if Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan should be invited on tequila tasting trip in Mexico.
First off, I find it hard to believe that these women are truly “concerned” over Sonja and her drinking. If they were, they wouldn’t be trying to embarrass her on camera all the time. Second, everyone knows that Luann and Sonja are the ones who really make these vacation episodes. Needless, to say Luann had an issue with this decision, but her issue isn’t with Bethenny who called for the vote. Ramona Singer is actually the one that she’s angry with.
Oh Real Housewives Of New York – you never cease to amaze me. Last night’s episode shone a rather frantic light on the very temporary nature of life as a Housewife.
First up Sonja Morgan has an intern she believes is her twin. This intern has Sonja’s nose, butLuann de Lesseps‘ voice and it’s all together confusing. That poor girl – Alex – upon realizing her predicament was shocked. In Sonja’s kitchen Luann lectures her about making amends with Bethenny Frankel, but Sonja is not inclined. She’s not going to grovel at the feet of the self-proclaimed Queen B, who is schtupping other women’s husbands and channeling the burden of her hypocrisy by having hysterical projecting meltdowns on Luann. Or at least I think that’s what happened between Bethenny and Luann during the Berkshires Bonanza. Which sounds like a recipe. Maybe Adam and Carole Radziwill can put it in their cookbook?! I give it a “Radish Rating” of 9.
We all know that Ramona has never been one to hold her tongue and with a topic that hits so close to home, it’s really not shocking that Ramona has already spoken out about the Wainstein divorce announcement.
