Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan is certainly juggling quite a few hats these days. The entrepreneurial diva is reportedly, now scouting New York City Upper East Side locations (of course) in hopes of finding a perfect locale for a restaurant she’d like to name Tipsy according to the New York Daily News.
Ahhh…but wait, Sonja has an ulterior motive for wanting to join the ranks of restaurateurs in the Big Apple…a reality show! An insider who spoke to the Daily News revealed, Sonja has aspirations of becoming another Lisa Vanderpump, the grand dame of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality show fame. Lisa, who owns restaurants, also managed to snag a successful spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, based on the shenanigans at one of her West Hollywood posh eateries, SUR. The insider states, Sonja is not wasting a precious minute to get her wheels in motion to pitch her reality show idea and has gone as far as, “hiring a producer and filmmaker to try to make a show based on it.”
Love is in the air big time for Real Housewives of New YorkCity’s,Luann de Lesseps. Reportedly, the Countess is all googly-eyed over boyfriend Thomas D’Agostino Jr. and it is rumored, he just might ‘put a ring on it’ and just in time for the show’s upcoming season.
Luann and Thomas were casual around September but then things really got percolating. Thomas had also reportedly dated RHONY’s resident kook, Ramona Singer for a hot minute but the pair went their separate ways and there doesn’t seem to be any hard feelings. Meanwhile, just who is this Thomas with the oh-so-familiar last name? Well, he is a millionaire and the CEO of Smart Source, LLC, a sourcing company with category expertise in buying, managing and distributing print and promotional materials. Thomas’ last name is also a well known one particularly on the east coast, according to the scuttlebutt, he has been linked to the famed and long-standing supermarket chain, D’Agostino.
This season’s Real Housewives of New York is all about fixing. Heather Thomson is trying to fix Bethenny Frankel. while Bethenny (and everyone else) is trying to fix Sonja Morgan. A handful of the ladies are trying to fix Ramona Singer up with a new man (God bless him, poor soul). And Kristen Taekman is praying to keep a fixed Bravo paycheck for another season. Sonja, for her part, is just trying keep her house standing up and her bathing suit parts glued together while she reaches for another drink to dull the pain of her many, many delusions of grandeur.
In her blog, Bethenny revisits the first installment of the ladies trip to Turks and Caicos, just the beginning of the wild ride to come, she says. But first, Bethenny revisits her confrontation with Kristen at Luann de Lesseps’ fashion soiree. “Let me back up and clean up the Kristen mess. I said it best at Luann’s party: I may have an opinion on the choices that someone makes in business, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to walk up and get in someone’s face about it.”
Aviva Drescher has always just laughed off her father, George Teichner’s shocking behavior. This is the man, who has groped most of the Real Housewives of New York’s members, been shown the door at a party by Ramona Singer and “poked” Sonja Morgan.
But still Aviva remained unfazed, she even through him an engagement party at the Museum of Sex when the 76-year-old became engaged to 25-year-old Dana Lavette Cody. But did Aviva finally throw in the towel and choose to skip out on her father’s recent nuptials?
Aviva took to her blog this week to confess that she's mortified by George's actions (and his words) with her co-stars, but says it's a parent's job to embarrass their kids. But I'm pretty sure parents aren't supposed to be handsy and downright crude to their kids' friends, right?
On last night's episode, Kristen learned what happens when you try and take on Ramona Singer. I mean how dare Kristen call out Ramona for something that she did? Did she not get the memo before the season started that Ramona can do and say, what Ramona wants to do or say, and the other housewives are not supposed to point that out. I say, "Go Kristen!", it is about time somebody pointed out the double standard that is Ramona. And the fact that she does it calmly and sanely, is just icing on the cake.
Bethenny Frankel is moving on up….or at least — according to In Touch Weekly — out of her dream home, the apartment that she bought with her soon-to-be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. The former Real Housewives of New York star filed for divorce in in December 2012 just shy of the couple's three year wedding anniversary, but continued to live with Jason in order to share parenting duties of their daughter, Bryn. Can you say awkward?!?!? Especially since she is in a new relationship with financier Michael “Mac” Cerussi III. Probably time to pack up and leave.
Both Bethenny and Jason came out swinging filing for sole custody and refusing to leave their luxury loft that they bought together. Now, I am not choosing sides, but the $5 million, 3,400 square foot loft was bought after she sold her Skinnygirl cocktail company for a reported $120 million. Just sayin.
It seems that Aviva was up for a good time, but Sonja Morgan didn’t want to mingle with her RHONY co-star! Sonja refused to come in and enjoy the party “because she found out Aviva was there, and she was on the list.”
Aviva was a great sport and even made this little impromptu video, trashing her fellow Housewives just a little bit! According to Tom, “She was the sweetest NY Housewife I have met yet, opposite of Sonja Morgan.” Ouch. I bet that burned like a faulty toaster oven.
