When Snapped meets Real Housewives Of New York insanity (and hilarity) ensue. In what has become my favorite episode like ever, last night was the perfect genesis of drama (and melodrama) meets fun and friendship. Keep it comin’ Bravo.
The ladies are all Scary Island 2.0, but this time it’s Sonja Morgan having a total break from reality (gummy bears optional). After Sonja and Bethenny Frankel went head-to-head over whose head was more screwed up, the ladies chowed some lobster and went to bed. Drama makes a mama cranky and sleepy. Rather, it makes most people cranky and sleepy – it gives Bethenny and Ramona Singer a crackling energy.
They stay up discussing the Sonja-sodes (the Sonja Episodes) and Ramona confesses to being worried about her bestie. Both agree Sonja is turning to alcohol to cope with loneliness – something ironically they can relate to. This spirals into a truly touching conversation where Ramona opens up to Bethenny about her divorce from Mario.
Yay! It’s that time of the week again when Real Housewives of New York’sDorinda Medley takes us on on the crazy, sense-makin’, straight talkin’ ride that is her blog. This week she reflects on why she’s proud of Sonja Morgan for standing her ground against Bethenny Frankel, why she loves Ramona Singer “like a sister” despite ‘Mona’s ridiculousness, and why wearing a once piece, well-made swimsuit is always the right choice in poolside lounge wear! #burntheyellowbikini
“Hello boys and girls! Welcome to storytime with Aunt Dori. Before we get started with this week’s adventure, a disclaimer: Everyone is crazy. Thanks,” begins Dorinda. Starting with her commentary on the Parkside dinner, Dorinda says more shade was served than rolls that night. “It was a handful of bitchery, and I feel like I overstepped and should have just kept my damn mouth shut about Sonja—or better yet, just defended her more. Who am I to pipe in, really? I have gone through so much grief (sometimes literally) in my life, and the one thing I needed most was a good support system.”
This weekend our favorite reality stars stepped out for the BET Awards events, the NYC Pride Parade celebration and more.
Tamar Braxton killed it on stage at the BET Awards with Patti LaBelle and K. Michelle. We also have a few of the red carpet arrival photos and some of the events before and after the awards. Those include Tonya Banks, Draya Michele, Torrei Hart, Joseline Hernandez, Mimi Faust and others! On a side note – did you guys see Diddy fall in the hole? I’m glad he laughed it off afterwards and didn’t take it too seriously like some certain others probably would have *cough<Kanye>cough*.
Also going on this weekend was the NYC Pride Parade, and Real Housewives of New York stars Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley were on hand to party it up for that one! On a RHONY side note – we aren’t typing Luann’s name wrong. She dropped the capital A for branding purposes, so no need to flood us with emails. 😉
“Turks and Caicos is already off to a crazy start with Ramona and Sonja manically choosing rooms,” begins Heather. “The house was beautiful and featured seven bedrooms…No need for room-gate! We eventually figured it out.” While the tipsy twins were commandeering rooms that suited their fancy, Heather was apparently having a “normal” conversation with Bethenny – something, she points out, the Bravo cameras didn’t really capture. (Where was Carole Radziwill’s Blair Witch Project handheld cam!?) “It’s always so interesting to see what’s covered on the show, because while you might get to see one thing going on, something else you might not see is always happening at the same time. I was much more interested in my conversation with Bethenny. We’re finally talking normally–hooray!”
As the ladies of Real Housewives Of New York took off for a trip to Turks and Caicos, so too did the drama! The foremost expert in etiquette and chic-ness, Luann de Lesseps, can now add “Girl Code” enforcer to her list of manners specialties. With a new song on the matter, Luann tackles all the violations of her castmates and discusses the emotional tsunami that is Ramona Singer!
Spanning from NYC to the Caribbean – wherever there are RHONY, trouble is sure to follow, and deciphering it all is The Countess!
Beginning with trouble at the Warwick Hotel, Luann knew it was too much to expect that her supposed friends would be supportive of her clothing venture, but chic c’est le vie! “You can have the best of everything and there’s still drama,” accepts Luann. “Ramona did admit she was a bit harsh on Kristen [Taekman] and that her timing wasn’t the best, so hopefully they’ll move forward and forget the whole thing.”
Ramona being Ramona, she sees her behavior a bit differently than the other ladies when it comes to choosing rooms on vacation. “I felt like a little kid looking for the room for Sonja and me to share. The ladies all take separate rooms, but ever since the Morocco trip, Sonja and I always room together,” claims Ramona. “It was quite humorous with all of us running around like squirrels looking for the nuts.”
Real Housewives Of New York – when it’s too hot in the city, despite the arctic winter chill, escape to the islands of Turks and Caicos but bring the arctic chill with you! I truly did love this episode – it was old times RHONY – real friends, serious drama that wasn’t fake or fabricated, yet light-hearted frivolity and laughs.
I’ve come to love the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. I think they deserve their own bestie name: Bethann? Luannethy? I’ve also come to accept Kristen Taekman as being silent, but necessary – her facial expressions are the omnipotent narrator and her outfits are a pleasant diversion from such atrocities as macramé, lucite stripper heels, or neon yellow bikinis purchased from the MTV Spring Break store in 1993.
