Real Housewives of New York

Jules discuss eating disorder with carole

My heart is really aching for Jules Wainstein. In such a short time she went from basically being in the background on Real Housewives of New York to being front page news for the troubles in her marriage with Michael Wainstein. First of all, the divorce news was a major shocker. Then, after rumors that the show was to blame Jules’s rep confirms that Michael was cheating. On top of that, the last episode was really not a good look for the couple with Michael’s weird insistence on showering and his attachment to his phone.

You know what they say, “when it rains, it pours,” and that definitely seems to be the case for Jules these days. There seems to be more drama accumulating by the hour. This is far from an amicable split between Jules and Michael.

Luann

Oh Real Housewives Of New York – you never cease to amaze me. Last night’s episode shone a rather frantic light on the very temporary nature of life as a Housewife. 

First up Sonja Morgan has an intern she believes is her twin. This intern has Sonja’s nose, but Luann de Lesseps‘ voice and it’s all together confusing. That poor girl – Alex – upon realizing her predicament was shocked. In Sonja’s kitchen Luann lectures her about making amends with Bethenny Frankel, but Sonja is not inclined. She’s not going to grovel at the feet of the self-proclaimed Queen B, who is schtupping other women’s husbands and channeling the burden of her hypocrisy by having hysterical projecting meltdowns on Luann. Or at least I think that’s what happened between Bethenny and Luann during the Berkshires Bonanza. Which sounds like a recipe. Maybe Adam and Carole Radziwill can put it in their cookbook?! I give it a “Radish Rating” of 9.

Tipsy-Girl-Mural

Bethenny Frankel flipped out when Sonja Morgan decided to come out with a line of proseco called Tipsy Girl. The wording hit a little too close to home for Bethenny and on top of that Bethenny was sort of mentoring Sonja on how to succeed in business so the surprise announcement felt like a portrayal.

Everyone in the Real Housewives of New York cast has sided with Bethenny and they all tried their hardest to make Sonja abandon her entrepreneurial efforts, but Sonja won’t budge. Sonja is one of my favorite housewives, but she is really fighting an uphill battle. And as if she needed another reason to throw in the towel, it looks like Tipsy Girl has ripped off another alcohol brand!

Sonja Morgan WWHL

Sonja Morgan (wearing a cute dress from her Sonja Morgan New York Collection) was in the clubhouse on Watch What Happens Live tonight, along with Housewives superfan Jerry O’Connell.  Sonja shared her feelings on her co-stars, defended her ‘drinking’, and much more.

On her relationship with Luann’s fiance Tom, she says that they’ve known each other for a long time – more than ten years. She doesn’t exactly say how long they’d been hooking up, but she says it was a recurring thing. Sonja says that Tom did not get to test out her rejuvenated lady bits – but she reveals that she was with him right before Thanksgiving and Lu got with him right after Thanksgiving.

Luann

It has been a rough couple of episodes for Real Housewives of New York‘s Luann de Lesseps. She’s been torn to shreds by her co-stars, but the Countess just keeps on ticking. In her side of this week’s episode she shares her zero effs attitude toward Bethenny Frankel’s words, her compassion for Sonja Morgan and more.

“Why do the girls care who I date or what I do with my private life? I’m living my life the way I choose and as long as I don’t harm anyone in the process, I say “chic ce la vie!” Dating is a game and flirting is part of it, but I’ve never tried to steal a man away from his woman. The fact that I have so many great girlfriends is proof that I respect other people’s relationships and that I’m a loyal friend. Sometimes, I think the girls confuse morality with jealousy.”  (Ramona would disagree)

bethenny

Bethenny Frankel is explaining why she’s turned into a chronic bolter this season on The Real Housewives of New York. The reality star took to her blog to give some insight to where her head was at during the insanity of the past few episodes.  And she also touches on that whole “dating a married man” thing.

Bethenny starts, “That argument was insane. I meant it all. I am not a slut shamer. I am a hypocrite and dishonesty shamer.  Many of you noticed that Luann spelled my name incorrectly on her phone. Perhaps I would have been softer on her or forgiven her if she knew how to spell my name after eight years.” Eric(k)a Jayne feels your pain, Bethenny.

Bethenny and Carole argue with Luann

Yeah, I’m just gonna admit it – I didn’t want to write this Real Housewives Of New York recap. I had to rally and force myself, because last night was just so icky, fake, mean, desperate, and scheming. I wish for Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel to take a good, hard, long inventory of their lives before they judge one more person.  That display last night was, again, all kinds of hypocrisy and person-shaming, and lady bashing. I don’t care how much they boast about how it was one of the greatest episodes of all time – it wasn’t, in my opinion. So it’s round two of Get Crass With The Countess. 

I don’t think Luann is any sort of innocent – she is annoyingly self-righteous, her jumpsuit was sinfully ugly, and I was pissed that she turned supplicant by apologizing to Bethenny after Bethenny’s barrage of insults. Also, I do think Luann likes to shift around the truth of things – like her relationship with Tom – but I don’t think anyone deserves the sort of treatment Bethenny dished out and I think Luann more than held her own in a calm manner, which impressed me.

Carole Radziwill wears Teal

Carole Radziwill is a master of self-reflection and introspection – which is why she’s able to handle the stress of Real Housewives Of New York. At least that’s what she thinks… 

“If there was anything I would do now that I never would have done when I was younger, it’s a reality show. I could only do it now because I am so grounded in who I am,” explains Carole. “So there’s no fear that I am suddenly going to become this crazy, screaming lunatic.” Well… maybe not the “screaming” part… Or wait – didn’t Carole grab Aviva Drescher on a flight of stairs over #BookGate?
