The last Real Housewives of New York reunion was awkward for many reasons, but one of the standout moments for me was when Bethenny Frankel called her new boyfriend Dennis Shields‘ daughter to verify that they did not have an affair and that she’s on good terms with the family. That was beyond cringe-worthy and the complete opposite of being low key. Apparently, that moment was a lot less significant than it seemed because Bethenny says their relationship isn’t that serious.
I’m not sure if Bethenny is taking a step back or if she’s just clarifying a story that’s been out there for a while. It could also have to do with the legal drama stemming from Bethenny and ex husband Jason Hoppy’s confrontation at their daughter Bryn‘s school. Either way, Bethenny is making it clear that this relationship with Dennis is not super serious – at all.
In my opinion, the ladies on Real Housewives of New York were way too hard on Sonja Morgan last season. From criticizing her (attempted) business ventures to her partying habits, everyone was coming for her. So, Sonja shut them all up and decided to stop drinking.
No one is perfect, but Sonja was unfairly treated as a human punching bag last season. So it will be interesting to see how people interact with her next season since she has been sober for so long and is surprisingly successful with her clothing line. On a recent podcast, Sonja opened up about what it is like being on the show, having regrets, and the other women’s drinking.
Reality Tea is ranking of every, single Housewife from every, single season from almost every Real Housewives franchise. You can find Part 1 of our rankings here. Now we finally return with Part 2 (aka the big ole mush in the middle)!
In Part 1 we mostly covered most Housewives who were either too crazy to be legit, or didn’t make much of an impact, or were just so miscast and off it was painful. Some of them were too nice, or too timid, or not rich enough, or too desperate. If she’s only a Housewife for a season, there’s usually a reason!
Unfortunately for the ladies, the cast members of Real Housewives don’t always have the best boyfriends and husbands. Sometimes that makes for good TV and other times it’s just genuinely sad to watch and hear about. Nevertheless, there are Real Housewives husbands and fathers that you would never want to date if you had the chance – at least in my opinion.
These dudes are the worst of the worst: from the cheaters to the jail birds to the fame hungry. These are not the kind of men that you would want to be with, but they managed to end up with reality TV’s finest (and some of them did make for better reality TV viewing).
If you’ll recall, last November Bethenny’s boyfriend threatened legal action against Jason for sending harassing and horrible message about Bethenny. It seems things have not simmered down and that cease and desist did nothing to resolve the hostility.
While most of us have been stuck inside thanks to Winter weather, the Real Housewives have ditched that cold and snowy life to relax (and probably turn up) on vacation in some warmer climates. Luckily for them, some of the Real Housewives have escaped the drama-filled cast trips.
Unfortunately for me (as a super fan), the ladies are all taking individual trips. The queen of the vacation turn up Vicki Gunvalson has been partying it up in Puerto Vallarta with her boo Steve Lodge. Ramona Singer is enjoying herself in South Beach, which made me flash back to Ramona bragging, “I go to Miami like I brush my teeth. Miami is not really a special place.” And then there is my favorite self-proclaimed jet setter, Sonja Morgan, who is sharing pictures and videos of her trip to St. Maarten.
