Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
The Apologist may be making the rounds yet again, this time in her business life. Ramona Singer’s partnership to market hair extensions with Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club may be null and void after a brief business relationship. Why? Because of Ramona’s “diva behavior,” of course!
Ramona reportedly wanted her new hair extensions venture to feature prominently into this season’s Real Housewives of New York, but is the business dead before it even started? In an email to Ramona last week, a fed-up Flores apparently scolded the reality star about her entitled attitude. “You are not Angelina Jolie!” she barked. (Ahahahahaha! I have got to stop laughing in order to keep typing. This is just so, so – spot on!)
Besides getting her coochie-coo checked out by a plastic surgeon this week,Jules Wainstein didn’t play a large role on The Real Housewives of New York. So…she’s decided to talk more about LAST week’s episode! In her blog, Jules reiterates her disdain for mean girls, namely Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. (I may be numbed by watching WAY too much reality TV, but if Jules thinks what she’s experienced is truly mean girl behavior from her cast mates….well, strap in and get a helmet, girlfriend!)
Jules begins, “It takes a lot to get me angry. I always go into situations with an open heart and mind and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but there is only so much negative energy I can stand until even I get defensive and lash out. I believe that people should take responsibility for the energy they bring into the room, and recognize that this energy shapes and affects our interactions with others.”
I figured that watching yourself on reality TV would make you a very reflective person and give you inspiration to make self improvements or at the very least make yourself look better after saying embarrassing shit. Apparently this is not really the case when it comes to Luann de Lesseps.
For some reason Luann expressed that she thought that the other women on Real Housewives of New York were jealous of her engagement to Tom D’Agostino during the last episode. If anything, the women were just shocked that she got engaged so quickly to someone who was “dating” both Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan pretty recently. Time has passed and the episode has aired and Luann has not clarified her statements. Instead, she maintains that the other women are super envious of her love life…
They were all just completely shocked by Lu channeling some Drake lyrics and going from “zero to one hundred real quick” with the super sudden engagement. No one knew how to react to her bragging about how she has a new apartment with a terrace now since it is so hard to get past things moving so quickly – not because anyone is jealous. And in a not-so-shocking turn of events Bethenny Frankel gave her two cents on the weird love triangle with Luann’s fiancee Tom D’Agostino, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the woes of thy vagina continued. Also Luann de Lesseps wonders why these bitches won’t be happy that she’s madly in love! It seems Luann answered her own question there, and the operative word is “bitches” – those bitches can’t be happy for her, because they’re bitches. OK, OK… that’s not entirely true, and more on this later… I know you cannot wait for my rambling musings on the many contrary behaviors of Housewives.
But first, Bethenny Frankel has taken a break from randomly bleeding all over Manhattan to launch Skinnygirl Chocolate. She decides to “go bold” by wearing a bright red wig, which considering what’s going on south of Bethenny’s equator, I dunno… maybe a little too close for comfort? Or maybe Bethenny wanted the drapes to match the curtains?
Jules starts out, “After watching this week’s episode I agree with Dorinda: It’s time for me to grow a pair…of calzones. While I refuse to engage in judgments and insults about how my fellow Housewives live their personal lives, I will say that the lack of self-awareness that some of these Yentas have is shocking.”
I was wondering what happened to former Real Housewives of New York cast member Alex McCord. It seems like she just disappeared once she left the show and moved to Australia with her husband Simon van Kempen. This is pretty rare since most of the former Housewives do whatever they can to be in the media spotlight.
Well, Alex came out of the woodwork recently and she did so in a major way when she called out most of her former cast mates.
