Happy Tuesday! We have a new mini reality star photo roundup for your snarking pleasure. Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville was evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother House. She was the fourth contest to get the boot on the show this season.
It’s time for the Real Housewives Of New York ladies to sit down and throw down for three straight weeks, and part one of the reunion started off with a bang – and a spooky disclaimer. As expected, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer faced off, and Luann de Lesseps was forced to answer question after brutal question regarding her marriage to Tom D’Agostino, which was likely on its last leg at time of filming. The setting was very Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil, and the fashions – well, they ranged from Tinsley Mortimer’s Shirley Temple ruffles to Dorinda Medley’s chic, bejeweled butterflies. Sonja Morgan decided to unleash her girls for battle, and Ramona – well. I’m not sure how to put this. Let’s just say, Mariah Carey’s stylist must be moonlighting for RHONY.
Andy Cohen opens the reunion after we are warned by Bravo that “what you are about to watch was recorded three weeks before Luann filed for divorce from her husband of seven months, Tom.” And now I feel like the Blair Witch is beginning. That was INTENSE. (Should we be scared? I’m gonna go with: Yes.) To add to the Gothic effect, Luann is wearing her wedding (reception) dress. This makes me shudder-cringe for poor Lu.
Tinsley Mortimer began The Real Housewives Of New York as a single gal trying to make a new start from the dust bunnies ofSonja Morgan’s spare room, and she ended it with a new beau and a hefty hotel bill! Now, Tinsley reflects on how far she’s come since cameras started rolling last fall, and how truly appreciative she is of Sonja’s hospitality – even though some of the other woman (and Page Six) say otherwise.
Despite the standard drama of being part of any Housewives enterprise, Tinsley says she enjoyed her time on the show. “Wow! I can’t believe RHONY Season 9 is over. What a rollercoaster! My life was in such a mess when I joined the show, and I think you can see the entire season for me was pretty much a long therapy session. Kindly, I received so much support from so many people that I do feel I can finally put the past behind me, forgive myself for staying in such a destructive relationship, and once again look forward to the future.”
Since Real Housewives Of New York wrapped its dramatic season where Ramona spent plenty of time looking the fool (and not just because of whatever plastic surgery she did on her face), she’s admitted her behavior was “childish” and she has been making amends. “My intent is never bad, but my delivery always SUCKS,” she defends. “I really have bad skills when it comes to communicating.” Good to know the Pinot-pology tour strikes again!
Every cast member on Real Housewives of New York (and even a lot of the viewers) warned Luann de Lesseps about Tom D’Agostino, so it’s not at all “shocking” that they announced their intent to divorce. Still, it is always sad to see a relationship end, especially when Luann had so much pride in being Mrs. D’Agostino. I mean she even dropped her beloved countess title for this guy.
One of the people who was very against this relationship was Ramona Singer – one of the many women in the tri-state who has “dated” Tom in some capacity. To put it nicely, Ramona doesn’t have the most social grace, so is she going to gloat and throw an “I told you so” at Luann or does she have some compassion for her costar?
