Yeah, I’m just gonna admit it – I didn’t want to write this Real Housewives Of New York recap. I had to rally and force myself, because last night was just so icky, fake, mean, desperate, and scheming. I wish for Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel to take a good, hard, long inventory of their lives before they judge one more person. That display last night was, again, all kinds of hypocrisy and person-shaming, and lady bashing. I don’t care how much they boast about how it was one of the greatest episodes of all time – it wasn’t, in my opinion. So it’s round two of Get Crass With The Countess.
I don’t think Luann is any sort of innocent – she is annoyingly self-righteous, her jumpsuit was sinfully ugly, and I was pissed that she turned supplicant by apologizing to Bethenny after Bethenny’s barrage of insults. Also, I do think Luann likes to shift around the truth of things – like her relationship with Tom – but I don’t think anyone deserves the sort of treatment Bethenny dished out and I think Luann more than held her own in a calm manner, which impressed me.
I really never thought I would see the day when the tension between Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer got this bad. It honestly does not even seem like these two are actually friends anymore. It appears to be a lot more than just a rough patch. These two really seem like they are done with each other.
To be honest, I’m pretty shocked. I never felt like Ramona treated Sonja nicely enough, but it always seemed like Sonja loved her unconditionally. That’s all over now. Sonja is done being loyal to Ramona and she is not afraid to talk shit about her former BFF – especially now that she has had the chance to watch the latest Real Housewives of New York episodes.
With each passing week, I like Jules Wainstein more and more. I initially thought she’d be boring and vapid and care too much about the veterans’ opinions to voice her own. Sure, she may place a little extra emphasis on how much a stay at home mom needs a nanny, but she’s got a good sense of humor seems to know how to act right…a rare trait in this bunch.
Have you recovered from Nightmare On Dorinda’s Street yet? Well, apparently, Luann de Lesseps has! Because she breezes through her blog this week on the wings of a bird who got sniped a few times, but eventually broke free from the cage of horrors that was The Real Housewives of New York!
Bottom line: Luann thinks Bethenny Frankel had it out for her from the very start. She accuses, “From the get-go, Bethenny decided that I was her prey and she was going to kill me with words. Obviously she’s been harboring a lot of anger towards me. I was surprised as I spent a lot of time with her over the summer, and she never shared her feelings with me. In fact, we talked about it at the beginning of the season, and she’s still holding a grudge.”
Last night’sReal Housewives Of New York left me feeling like Dorinda Medley! I watch this show! It’s supposed to be fun! None of you can “betave!” (And yes – I was swinging a vodka bottle as I ranted at the TV – ironically the TV, which can’t hear me, provided the same non-reaction as the Housewives who were physically standing right in front of Dorinda!)
Also, I’m just gonna say it – I’m tired of Bethenny Frankel. This is not HER show. That spinoff was CANCELLED. Time for Bethenny to recognize where she stands; maybe Bravo gives her special snowflake treatment, but she’s rolling in the same muck as all the other harridans she pretends to be above, and her despot tyrannical behavior is just annoying.
We know that Bethenny Frankel finally has enough and goes off on Luann de Lesseps over her love life, accusing her of sleeping with everyone. Ramona Singergoes off on Luann for breaking girl code when it comes to Tom because Ramona was dating him, too.
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.
Andy Cohen has been busy in the Bravo Clubhouse. So busy, in fact, that he’s enlisting help from his celebrity friends as temporary late night hosts! Look Who’s Hosting Live, a new Bravo show in which celebrities becomes hosts of their very own late night talk show – for one night only – is one of seven new shows in the works for Bravo.
Bravo describes the celebrity spin on Watch What Happens Live as a chance for wannabe hosts to do it all: “From writing monologues, to picking their sidekicks and guests, these hosts-for-a-night will get the chance to live out their fantasy and design their dream show.” But does celebrity mean Bravolebrity? Are we gonna get to see Ramona Singer interviewing some hapless starlet while sucking down Pinot from her new beer goggles? Because if so, then…yes please!
