It used to be the Berkshires where The Real Housewives of New York collectively lost their effin’ minds. But Dorinda Medley has backed that sh*t up and backed it up real fast – all the way to the first trip of the year in the Hamptons. The scene of the crime: Luann de Lesseps’ white-on-white dining area. The accused: Sonja T. Morgan. The witnesses: Ramona Singer and some other random chick whose name I think might be Mary and who looks ready to die of television-related embarrassment.
Since we were last upon the scene, Dorinda’s face has gone from fuchsia to full-on fire engine red and spittle has gathered in the corners of her mouth. Essentially, Dorinda is frothing. As she rails at Sonja for her lies, hurling bombshells about her failed marriage straight in her face, Sonja emotionally goes blank. Like, scary blank. She sips her veggies, shrugs her shoulders, and heads straight to her imaginary happy land – which is likely somewhere that exists circa 2002 in Southern France. Even Ramona screaming, “YOU NEED TO APOLOGIZE!” after Dorinda storms out of the room doesn’t phase Sonja. Dude. She’s in the sunken place.
We’re halfway through the week! Time to check out what the reality stars have been up to. Sonja Morgan busted out her best animal print dress for the EarthxGlobal Gala in Dallas, Texas. Brandi Glanville was spotted during a night out with a friend in L.A. and we have many more sightings in our gallery this week!
A picture is worth a thousand words, rights? So what does it say when Cameran Eubanks, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Shep Rose, Kathryn Dennis, and Patricia Altschulall post the same photo of Cameran, Whitney, Shep, and Kathryn with Cameran’s daughter Palmer? I’m sure that they were all excited to meet the new baby, but are they also sending a message about the “teams” for the rest of Southern CharmSeason 5? Or maybe I’m just being presumptuous… Then again, take a look at Thomas Ravenel’sTwitter account and it’s very clear that he and Patricia are feuding these days. We shall see what happens as the season continues….
Former Real Housewives of New York star Heather Thomson has been busy running her businesses and living life since leaving the show, but she took a little time recently to sit down and share her thoughts on her former co-stars and more.
This week, The Real Housewives of New York hit the road. It’s time for everyone to assemble at the dinner table and give one another a verbal dressing down. Because this is what they do best, no? The ladies are heading to the Hamptons for Bethenny Frankel’s birthday, Carole Radziwill’s post-marathon soiree – hosted by Hamptons maven herself, Ramona Singer – and for the annual WWE match between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. Dorinda has been mainlining martinis in preparation for the event. Sonja has been taking her kaftans out of cellophane for the event.
Carole is driving up with Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda. But the bigger point of contention is where she’s staying – at a hotel with Tinsley instead of at Bethenny’s Hamptons pad. Why? Well, we get two different answers. Carole says that Bethenny’s “got a full house” so she opted to stay elsewhere. But Bethenny claims she invited Carole, but thinks her ex-bestie doesn’t want to come over because Bethenny’s daughter will be there. “Carole needs a best friend really close to at all times,” says Bethenny, who presumes Tinsley is this new best friend. “They’re thick as thieves.”
To hold you over until the next episode airs, Carole and Bethenny’s beef spilled over to Twitter and this time it has to do with Bethenny’s charitable efforts. During the first episode of Season 10, Bethenny invited Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona Singer to a gala to thank them for being so supportive of her hurricane relief work. Carole was noticeably absent.
You know a Real Housewives show is good when it returns with the same cast it had last season and when it doesn’t rely on “Friends of the Housewives” or other side characters to make it interesting. The only show that statement applies to is Real Housewives of New York.
The Real Housewives of New York is back, and all is right in my reality TV world again. Ahh, the sweet sounds of Dorinda Medley speaking in tongues after tossing back one too many. Ramona Singer using plastic microphones to emphasize her incomprehensible points. Luann de Lesseps pounding her chest and proclaiming, “I have suffered!” in her most insufferable delusion. And Carole Radziwill learning to exercise. Well, okay – it’s not all riveting. But after a few franchise duds this year, I’ll take it! Although I wasn’t here for the premiere, I’m back in now with two feet firmly planted in the delicious mess of this particular group of women.
This week, we find out who’s working on running (Carole) and who’s just running her mouth (Sonja Morgan). After opening credits, we see Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona, and Carole meeting for lunch. Why? So Carole can tell them that Luann is culturally insensitive and that she’s nervous she is to run the NY marathon. Ramona says she’s planned a super-secret party for Carole to celebrate her accomplishments. Except maybe she hasn’t planned it until this very moment? Clearly, Ramona has had a bright idea, and she is fully committed to seeing it through. She can only manage one thought in her head at a time, after all.
