We’ve managed to steer clear of political talk here on Reality Tea, wanting to keep the site as a refuge for those seeking an escape from the stress of all things politics – no matter what your views. We’re a fansite for reality television fans and even though a reality star was running for office, we wanted to keep this place as a space for dishing on the ridiculousness and fun of reality shows. That said, it seems the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New York is going to force us to acknowledge the election on some level since it is going to be a large part of Carole Radziwill‘s storyline this season.
We weighed our options on how to handle this as we prepare for the premiere of RHONY this week. We even considered NOT covering the show at all this season because if you’ve ventured off and read comments on any political articles, you know full well what a shitshow it is. And we do not want that here. If you thought the heyday of Teresa Giudice VS. Melissa Gorga was a stressful mess of hate when it came to the comments, that was a civilized tea party compared to what we’ve seen when it comes to political discussions online. We even considered recapping the shows but eliminating any of Carole’s political scenes or turning off the comments, but that would be a tricky task and not very authentic and not what we want to do.
Nothing gets me more pumped for a new Real Housewives season than the taglines reveal. These are the phrases that each Housewife says at the start of each episode. They (usually) entertain and set the tone for what to expect from each cast member that season.
Now that the Real Housewives of New York taglines have been released I cannot help (over) analyzing about what’s about to go down in the new season.
Tinsley met her much-younger, much-monied former beau Nicoafter divorcing the much-monied, much social-connected Topper. Her relationship with Nico was dramatic from the get-go, and she confesses to spending “years” covering up the truth about their “tumultuous, terrible relationship.”
Ironically enough, the drama really turned up in Jules Wainstein’s life after she got the ax on Real Housewives of New York. Unfortunately for her (and her children), the issues between Jules and her soon-to-be ex-husband Michael Wainstein seem to be getting worse. His attorney alleges that Jules went through a five-figure child support payment in TWO DAYS.
Apparently that money didn’t go toward the home electric bill since the electric was shut down at the family residence where their two kids live. This would have been a super juicy story line on Real Housewives of New York… so I can see why Jules might be happy that her reality TV career was over before it really began.
I have been counting down until Real Housewives of New York returns ever since the initial trailer was released. I am interested to see how they all interact after some pretty dark story lines and heated reunion episodes last season.
In a recent interview, Dorinda Medley opened up about what to expect from the new season and new housewife, Tinsley Mortimer. She also talked about how RHONY has changed her life and revealed that she considered joining the cast at the very beginning.
Joy Behar told Eric that the photo got fans stirred up again, wondering if they were an item. Eric explains his relationship with the Real Housewives of New York star, “Bethenny and I met at a party a couple years ago and you all know Bethenny – she is a force and she is amazing and she is exactly what you see on TV in addition to being really sweet and really kind and caring.”
