At this point, Tom D’Agostino needs to be holding up an apple in the opening credits on Real Housewives of New York. When Luann de Lesseps said, “Please don’t let it be about Tom” it was more than just a great quote for gifs and merchandise, it was a prolific statement. RHONYhas turned into the Tom show so it really isn’t surprising that there are reports their marriage may be in trouble.
They got engaged after WEEKS of dating after he already “dated” two of her Real Housewives costars. That’s not exactly a solid start to a relationship.
In all honesty, Tinsley Mortimer isn’t bringing much to Real Housewives of New York. Then again, pretty much no one is, which I’m sure is tough to do after they had the best season ever last year. Hopefully they turn things around with this Mexico trip (and Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into the bushes), but the episodes up to this point have been a total snooze fest. The only thing going on is Bethenny Frankel’s feud with Ramona Singer, which has dragged out way too long and just isn’t entertaining anymore.
Still, it did get kind of weird when Bethenny and Ramona attempted to have a “private” conversation in front of the cameras for a cast dinner. Then Bethenny got weirdly offended when other people eavesdropped even though no one could help listening in to a conversation that was happening a few inches away from them.
With The Real Housewives Of New York’s trip to Mexico just around the corner, Luann D’Agostino is gathering her wits and her statement necklaces about her for the dysfunctional adventure ahead. She says she’s excited to see footage roll of the ladies’ shenanigans (including her falling down the steps…into the bushes…from grace), but that she wishes Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer would just put their drama behind them. (HA!)
Luann reflects, “Over the past nine years, I’ve taken some amazing trips with the ladies. We’ve ridden camels, skied, partied in clubs with pirates (and on sandbars), and stayed in some incredible houses, so I’m excited to go to Mexico with the girls. Ramona’s going no matter what and hopefully she will behave.”
Everyone who watches Real Housewives of New York knows that Ramona Singer loves to brag about her dating prowess, but she is very tight lipped about what really goes down and with whom. That’s why it’s surprising that she took part in Andy Cohen’s dating show Love Connection.
What’s even more surprising is that she was cooperative and may have found success.
As The Real Housewives Of New York get ready for their Mexico trip, sponsored by Skinnygirl (TM)Bethenny Frankel, Tinsley Mortimer decides to mimic her favorite gradeschool character by moving into a room on the tippy top floor! (Eloise shout out) of her favorite hotel. Because she’s a grownup now and thinks this will prove it. Plus, moving furniture is just too overwhelming – as is walking, thinking, breathing, and blinking for dear Tins. In fact, she’s getting the vapors just thinking about it all. She just wants to kiss random men in public (like the one Carole Radziwill sets her up with) and get her blowouts on the UES, where room service and clean towels rain down from heaven!!!
Good thing Sonja Morgan’s new eyebrows have been painted solidly to her face, so she’s able to make the wide assortment of facial expressions necessary when Tinsley announces her big-girl plans at dinner. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer’s also got a few facial contortions expressions in store for Bethenny, who sits down with her frenemy to discuss her trip invite – or lack thereof.
Tinsley shared her relief at Bethenny’s empathy. “After a rough night with the girls and feeling as if they really have little understanding of the unrelenting and unending stress I still feel, I decided from that point forward to try and be quiet about my situation. Though feeling a bit chagrined from the night before, I got up and prepared for a fun, distracting day on the slopes. It did make me feel better when Bethenny approached me and appeared to have a greater understanding of what I was feeling and apologized for the gang-up the previous evening. I appreciated the gesture, especially from her, because she has been going through her own drama.”
Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
