Last night Real Housewives Of New York turned 100 and kept it 100! Andy Cohen checked in one-on-one with all of the current cast, Aviva Drescher, and also Kelly Bensimon who shared some really illumination information about her version of Scary Island, the issues with Bethenny Frankel, and more. It made me all the more le sad that Le’ Ladies New York are done for this season!
It’s clear that Bethenny has become the omnipotent narrator of RHONY; the all-knowing, all-seeing, all-describing prophet who speaks of success and failures with aplomb and certainty. It’s not a bad role for her, and she clearly relishes in it (and clearly isn’t glad her talk show ended!).
For the 100th episode, I was pleasantly surprised how candid and willing the ladies were to share their side of the stories – and I’m also super glad Bravo allowed them to really go IN. I appreciated Bravo not pretending viewers don’t understand things such as editing!
Last night Sonja celebrated her Social Life Magazine Cover (see it below) by throwing a Sonja Morgan New York Fashion, Swimwear and Jewelry Presentation at Beautique. Her co-star Dorinda Medley and Dorinda’s boyfriend John Mahdessian turned out to show their support.
Check out the pics from Sonja’s collection below and tell us which one is your favorite!
The reality TV stars are still firmly planted in NYC this week since anyone who’s anyone is crawling the Fashion Week events.
Kourtney Kardashian continues to show off an edgier post-Scott look as she and her Kardashian-Jenner family attend shows and events all week. Including Kim Kardashian wearing a fur coat in the 85 degree heat.
They start off talking about different dramatic storylines this season on RHOC, so Andy asks Ramona her thoughts on several of the situations. Andy asks Ramona what she thinks of the OC ladies not believing that Brooks Ayers has cancer. “If he’s lying about, it’s a pretty emotionally ill thing and should call him out on it because it means he has problems. And if he is really ill, just leave him alone.”
Bethenny Frankel was a guest on The Steve Harvey Show yesterday and ironically she played Love Doctor. Dealing with the dramatic love lives of her Real Housewives Of New York co-stars obviously prepared her well! “I’ve learned more from my mistakes than from my successes,” explained the author of I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To as she helped two couples deal with crisis.
Bethenny didn’t dish on any Housewives gossip, or discuss her own romantic involvements, but she did drop a few hints about how she feels about love, marriage, and men. “I’m really happy right now. Or at least I’m going to be happy forever,” she admitted. Which seemed to be a thinly veiled jab at splitting from Jason Hoppy. Bethenny is rumored to be dating CNBC financial expert Marcus Lemonis.
Below, some advice from Bethenny on how to handle stagnant and noncommittal men!
Wait, what? Heather Thomson recently announced her departure from the Real Housewives Of New York, and everyone is already wondering who should replace her. But, Monica Lewinsky? We know, that may sound like a strange one, but for whatever reason, Dorinda Medley thinks that Lewinsky would be great. We’ll just let that one sink in for a moment.
Okay, maybe it’s not so shocking that Medley would bring up Lewinsky or the Clintons, since Medley’s late husband worked for the U.S. House banking committee, in which he and Dorinda worked with Clinton family doing fundraisers. But Monica? Seems like an odd choice, but to each their own. What else did Medley have to say about Thomson’s departure?
After a season of frustrating relationships and failing friendships, Heather found herself at a cross-roads. “My third year I kind of figured out where I was with the women. There was a beginning, middle and end for everything, and for me, that was the end,” says Heather, who credits the process for making her “wiser.”
