I hate to be a hater, but it’s usually pretty tough for me to take any Real Housewives side projects seriously. As much as I love the housewives (which is a lot), it’s difficult for me to think them as actresses, lifestyle experts, entrepreneurs, or whatever else they claim to be. With that said, six current and former Housewives are set to star in a sitcom together.
Yes, you read that right- not a reality show, but a sitcom. Still, the show is a reality TV satire, so they aren’t straying too far from the norm.
I was so happy to watch the Real Housewives of New York premiere. I’ve been watching this show from the beginning and it feels like all of the cast members are my best friends in my head… not that any of them have any idea that I exist. My point here is that I’m super invested. With that said, I wasn’t wowed by the first episode of Season 9. Sure, I was happy to see everyone again, but not much happened. And that’s probably why Bethenny Frankel didn’t have too many specific comments following the episode.
I was excited to see all of the new faces (and you know what I mean by that) and to hear some hilarious one-liners, but as far as the plot went, pretty much nothing happened. Nevertheless, Bethenny insists that we should be ready for a hilarious season.
The RHONY trio also offered a glimpse into what it’s like to brawl in front of the cameras (Sonja confesses she can’t stand reunions – they make her sweaty!) and how their friendships continue to forge ahead, despite the drama. Ramona admits that she’d never want Jill Zarin back on RHONY, despite what she calls Jill’s “desperate” attempt to return. And as an added cherry on top, Ramona and Sonja coughed up some inside info on what went down behind the scenes on Scary Island with Kelly Bensimon back in the day!
There’s an interesting juxtaposition when it comes to Ramona Singer’s candor on Real Housewives of New York. Sometimes she shares every thought that pops into her head and other occasions, she’s tight-lipped. Basically it comes down to this: Ramona has no problem expressing her opinion when it comes to other people’s lives; she doesn’t reveal much when it has to do with her own.
So yes, we saw Ramona coming home from a lunch date during the premiere, but there’s no way she’s going to say much about it other than describing it as a “hot date.” On the other hand, she has so many thoughts on Luann de Lesseps and her engagement to Tom D’Agostino. Not only that, but Ramona called Tom’s ex in California – in the middle of the night – just to get the scoop. Is she stirring the pot or genuinely trying to help Luann? It sure seems like the first one to me.
I am ecstatic that Real Housewives of New York is back. Thankfully a new season means the cast members are doing lots of promotional interviews and sharing some interesting info, and we all know how much the RHONY ladies love to chat, especially Bethenny Frankel.
Bethenny has an opinion on pretty much everything and she always has a lot to say. And yes, this still includes discussing her divorce from Jason Hoppy.
Scheana Marie and her new boyfriend, Robert Parks-Valletta, attended Amazon Original Series “American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story” premiere event at The Playboy Mansion, along with Vanderpump Rules co-star Jax Taylor.
The energy was high with Andy Cohen, Bethenny, and Jeff in the same room… shade was thrown, insults were hurled, and gossip was revealed. Oh and of course they talked about Luann de Lesseps and her marriage to Tom D’Agostino. Multiple times.
YES!!! The ladies of The Real Housewives Of New York are back and ready to play hardball! Last night’s season premiere set the stage for story lines that will tie the season together – or, more likely, cause everyone to unravel.
Ramona Singer simply can’t allow Luann de Lesseps to marry fiance Tom D’Agostino without creeping her out with strange champagne toasts (and playing Nancy Drew behind her back), while Dorinda Medley can’t let go of the petty nonsense that came to a head with Sonja Morgan at last season’s reunion. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel is busy starting a new chapter of her life, which includes unloading the apartment she once shared with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. AndCarole Radziwill, obsessing about the 2016 Presidential election to a degree that even exhausts Bethenny, shows us what it looks like to “shack up” with a boyfriend. Hint: It apparently includes adopting pets, reupholstering your couch, and forcing your boyfriend to get a makeover.
