Last night’s sit down between Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan was hard to watch. It was hard to watch Sonja cry, it was hard to watch Bethenny give it to her straight, but it was needed. I hope Sonja appreciates that Bethenny is always going to be blunt with her and sometimes give her the reality smack that she needs.
Bethenny reflected on her business journey in her Real Housewives of New Yorkblog this week. “Oh what a tangled web we weave. It was crazy to watch the evolution of my hustle from a CT supermarket to Union Square. The stakes are way higher, but the hustle is the same. Business is tough. I love what I do, and I am 100% invested, and it is my mission to help and inspire female entrepreneurs. This entails being honest about what it takes. Even now I struggle to make things work, and I have drive and determination, and I’m completely committed.”
I was clearly in the minority, but I appreciated Kristen Taekman for representing the ‘normal girl’ perspective on Real Housewives Of New York. It turns out, Kristen agrees she was way too sane for that Turtle Timey mess!
Is it me or are things on Real Housewives Of New York just straight up mean this season?! If it isn’t raining men in NYC, it’s raining bitches – and everyone is getting drenched!
At least things start out positively. Moving into the fifth floor of Manor Morgan is Luann de Lesseps. The heater may not work but at least there’s a hot plate.
While Luann lounges on a bed still bearing the trappings of 1992 bourgeois stylings, she wonders if her hostess with the mostess loose ends, Sonja Morgan, has told Bethenny Frankel about the Tipsy Girl unveiling. Sonja shrugs off the potential snafu. She ain’t scairt of Bethenny. The well of booze has a deep trough, and Tipsy Girl is but a little drop, all of it likely going down Sonja’s gullet. After all, there was once a Skinny Bitch, then along came a Skinnygirl, and that little low-fat piggy went on reality TV and squealed all the way to the bank.
I don’t know if it was just my mood or what, but tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was the funnest and funniest in a long time! Andy’s guests were Luann de Lesseps and Housewives Superfan Michael Rapaport (yes, that’s his official title now) and they were hilarious together. Both of them were there to have fun and not be too serious and it was a good time.
Andy starts off the night by bringing up Luann’ssurprise birthday party last night – which Ramona Singer was uninvited to! Ramona took to Snapchat to vent about it and Andy played the video for her. Ramona says that Lu’s fiance called her at the last minute and “dis-invited” her because of rain and Ramona says there’s no rain in HER apartment and it’s big enough for a party. Luann laughs at the video.
Luann de Lesseps is crazy, happy in love after a whirlwind romance to Tom d’Agostino Jr. and the Countess is about to shed her title for a New Year’s Wedding complete with 3 dresses (and how many Bravo cameras, again?!).
To be honest, I really thought that Ramonjawas the only Real Housewives duo that we could count on to last forever. Based on the most recent episodes of Real Housewives of New York, this could not be further from the truth. Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer are no longer best friends. It is blatantly obvious and pretty sad. These two used to bring some lighthearted laughs to the show. Now we are stuck watching them argue about who has the best imaginary business empire.
Ramona has been coming for Sonja and usually Sonja just lets the insults roll off her back. I don’t know if that’s because she is just a positive person who’s not into the controversy or if she just didn’t notice that her supposed best friend was coming for her with veiled concerns. Sonja has finally read the writing on the wall and she is calling out Ramona for being a hypocrite and a shitty friend. Well, not in those words, but she did have a lot to say about her.
Lately, I could not tell if my mind was playing tricks on me, but I couldn’t figure out why Bethenny Frankel looked so different to me these days. Every time I watch Real Housewives of New York, I try to figure out what is going on with her face. I thought that maybe it was just the change up with her short hair cut or that she got a new makeup artist or something, but then I started to look back at some old photos. It was obvious that her jaw looks very different than it used to.
Bethenny‘s jaw used to be a lot more defined than it is now. And Bethenny is always talking about how she keeps it real and she’s already copped to getting breast implants, so I am sort of confused by why she didn’t say why her jaw looks so drastically different. Well, she’s finally come clean about the changes.
