Aside from throwing her legs up in the air, Bethenny kept it cool, considering all of the insults Ramona was hurling her way. Ramona was out of her mind and then she had the audacity to pull the “I don’t remember what I said” card during her on camera interview. Please, girl. No one is buying that.
This Real Housewives of New York season has been pretty lackluster so far, but Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel’s argument in the Berkshires amped up the excitement. Ramona really took things to another level with her outburst of insults. Later she pulled a #TotalHousewivesMove and claimed that she “didn’t remember” whatever she said to Bethenny. Right. As if any of us believe that.
Now that some time has passed, the episode has aired, and people are hating on Ramona, she is defending herself. Not only that, but she’s addressing the destruction she (allegedly) left behind at Dorinda Medley‘s Berkshires house.
I’m hoping the rest of the season focuses more on Ramona’s craziness and less on Tom. Don’t get me wrong, I think last season was one of the best (if not the best), but that’s because Tom was constantly doing something new and scandalous. Now people are just harping on the old incidents and I’m done with it. If Tom does something new, then I’m all for talking about it, but if Luann does not care about Tom‘s previous antics, then neither do I and I’m so done listening to the same thing over and over again.
Ramona began by recounting the incident, and the emotions that led up to it. She explains, “I just lost it on her. I don’t even remember half the things I said. I had to wait to watch it to see. I was walking on eggshells. She wasn’t giving me an inch for months, so I was hoping at the Berkshires we could have some closure. And yeah, I was sh*t ass nervous! I was drinking all day long. Every time I’ve been around Bethenny, it’s nervous energy. I’m not really acting like myself.”
I have no idea who was asking for this, but Jill Zarin returned to Real Housewives of New York last night because she is thirsting for relevancy such close friends with Luann de Lesseps. I’m sure she was hoping for a big comeback, but the OG cast member truly underwhelmed. The only major soundbite she provided was her belief that Ramona Singer is “unhappy.”
I’m not sure what Jill would know about anyone on this show since she isn’t really friends with them, but she had no issue psychoanalyzing her frienemy. Now she is explaining the comment that she solely made for attention and by “explaining,” I mean she’s backtracking from her own words and sucking up to Bethenny Frankel again.
Bethenny does pull a spread eagle while screaming at Ramona though, which sort of feels like a low rent Wonder Woman move gone dangerously awry. And Ramona uncorks the long-buried demons of Scary Island as she eviscerates Bethenny like never before. Her motto last night: When they go low, I go Pinot! In essence, the drama this week is served upside down, with a twist of crazy. Just the way the Housewives like it.
Let’s check in with our reality TV stars to see what they’ve been up to recently! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey was a guest speaker at the 2017 Atlanta Ultimate Women’s Expo. Also at the event was her RHOA co-star Kenya Moore, as well as Married to Medicine stars Jackie Walters and Heavenly Kimes.
Farrah Abraham celebrated her birthday at Beautique in NYC and brought along daughter Sophia for the birthday dinner. And now I’m hungry for cake.
Former Miami Housewife Joanna Krupa attended the 4th annual “Ante Up For A Cancer Free Generation Poker Tournament And Casino Night” in Beverly Hills.
In their blogs, Bethenny and Luann de Lesseps break down the drama, and share some insight on just how differently they see the world. Though Bethenny still may think Luann is making a huge mistake in marrying Tom D’Agostino, she admits, “Luann had strength. I felt badly, and who knows if I was projecting. I just wanted to make sure she felt safe to jump on a lifeboat if she needed to.”
