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.”
The tension between Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel has been lingering for most of this Real Housewives of New York season. It pretty much all stems from when Ramona asked Bethenny if her six-year-old daughter was aware of a topless scene she did in a movie. Ever since then, Bethenny has wanted nothing to do with her…. other than the events they’re contractually obligated to attend as cast members of the same reality show.
Bethenny has been doing her best to pretend that Ramona doesn’t exist and Ramona mistook the (initial) lack of arguing as an indication of peace. Of all people to teach Ramona to be self-aware, it was Sonja Morgan who pointed out that Bethenny was still very mad at Ramona and then the episode ended on a cliff hanger with Bethenny and Ramona screaming at each other. This means that the feud will continue for the entire season at least another episode.
I think I can speak for the better part of The Real Housewives of New York viewing audience when I kindly request that they make the Tom D’Agostino storyline just STOP already. (Please? We will do anything – we will watch Sonja Morgan go in for vaginal rejuvenation number two! We will welcome Jill Zarin back with open arms! We will watch that friggin election party again – okay, too far.) Because when it comes to this dusty old Tom story, I have to channel Ramona Singer here and ask, are you kidding me? Are you KIDDING me? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!
Alas, I regret to inform you that despite our better wishes, the ladies decide it’s still a wise idea to confront Luann de Lesseps about her upcoming nuptials to dear, openly-cheating Tomfor the seven hundredth time. In this week’s installment of Are You Sure You Want To Be A Bride, Luann?Ramona leads the charge, with Bethenny Frankel throwing some tears and bizarre begging in for good measure. Then, Ramona and Bethenny go at it head to head in what may be the final round of their friendship. This all occurs after Ramona nearly literally turns herself into the cartoon character version of her former, batsh*t self. So, strap in!
Before anyone can get their panties in a Berkshires twist, we begin in NY with Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund discussing the sale of her current apartment – and prepping us, yet again, for their imminent spinoff. When Fredrik suggests that Bethenny remove the clutter from her home, she sees Skinnygirl Red, barking that she DOES NOT DO CLUTTER! And really, what is he talking about with this imaginary clutter issue? Homegirl is about as spartan as they come with her style. They can agree on a price though – as long as Fredrik agrees with Bethenny.
The ladies of Real Housewives of New York were a tad obsessed with Luann de Lesseps‘ wedding plans when they filmed this season together, for good reason, obviously. Luann is trying to let it all roll right off her back and is thankful for friends like Sonja Morgan who are showing a little support of her decision to move forward with the wedding to Tom D’Agostino, despite Tom’s cheating.
She shared in her blog this week, “Who has time for negativity when I’m planning a fabulous wedding weekend? So many details! As you can see, I was working on the wedding when I met Sonja at Il Postino for lunch. Sonja is happy for us and although she’ll be out of town for our wedding, she wishes us all the best. At least someone is happy for us!”
