This week's reality TV viewer numbers are in – and an impressive 2.206 million watched the Basketball Wives L.A. reunion, bringing its season average to 2.055 million. Sadly, only 861,000 fans bothered with the Southern Charmreunion, but we hope the season finale's 1.21 million and the season average of 943,000 is enough to get it renewed.
Let's take at trip, shall we? Will y'all travel with me to Long Island? Wait, no. How about Staten Island? Nah, that's not right either. Okay, who is up for an all expenses paid trip to Scary Island? Yes, I'd say we're all familiar with that destination!
Did the entire cast of Real Housewives of New York lose their minds (I mean, that's insinuating they had minds to begin with, but…) – someone must have spiked the pinot! Sonja Morgan is in hot water – and I don't mean in the spa hot tub. She's got a mess of financial issues that are literally drowning her. Because Ramona Singer has issues of her own, she's decided to ignore them and focus all of her animosity on taking care of Sonja. It doesn't bode well for Ramonja! Is Turtle Time dead? (Please say yes!).
Sonja has a pool day, so she and her intern hit up the local Whole Foods some refreshments and then hire a the DJ/Bar Tender. The guests? Sonja, Aviva Drescher, and Ramona. Yes – Sonja hired a DJ and bar tender for this. "If you don't feel decadent, you're doing something wrong!" Sonja explains. Something wrong like spending money on things like DJs when your iPod playlist will do just fine? Something like that decadence? #ThisIsWhyYoureBankrupt
Apparently Ramona doesn't care about those lettersMario's mistress, Kasey Dexter, is leaking to the tabloids about her amazing sex life with Mario. Perhaps Ramona was sipping on the pinot when she made her trip to the courthouse to file – or perhaps she's sipping on the pinot now because Ramona and Mario just spent a romantical weekend together celebrating his birthday. Modern romance…
Tom Murro shares with us that Ramona has had a "change of heart" concerning Mario. The Real Housewives of New York stars spent the weekend celebrating with friends for a bit of a NYC staycation. They started the festivities at Lavo Nightclub, then checked into the Pierre Hotel where they spent Saturday having breakfast in bed.
On Tuesday, 1.383 million viewers sat through theReal Housewives of New York bickering their way through July 4th. Part two of the Teen Mom 2 reunion attracted 1.351 million. That's a season low for Teen Mom 2. But it's more likely a result of MTV messing with the schedule rather than viewers losing interest.
Ramona is doing a negligee photoshoot with her dog so Avery can hang it on her dorm wall. Right – because everyone wants a calendar of their mother in over-the-hill lingerie. Holding a dog. With crazy-eyes. You know how they always say dogs resemble their master… Sonja comes over to also take photos of herself with her dog for Avery's dorm room? She yammers on about how she's now starting a men's and women's shirt collection. Meanwhile she lets her dog drink water out of Ramona's stemware.
Sonja puts on a happy face and keeps it together – she doesn't think anyone would know from looking at her how out of control her life is. She describes herself as a cat with nine-lives (and in 8 of them she forgot to put on pants!). Oh… I dunno, when I look at Sonja, I see a trainwreck.
Ramona Singer is synonymous with a few things: pinot, crazy eyes, rude comments, and stirring up trouble. On last week's episode of Real Housewives of New York Ramona returned fresh from a safari with crazy ideas of treating Housewives like an anthropological experiment. Sadly for her, Andy Cohen has already done that!
In response to Ramona putting her turtle time where it does not belong,LuAnn de Lesseps is reminding her that elegance is learned! And part of having class is knowing when your opinions are not warranted.
"Ramona jumps into the Heather/Aviva fight and calls Heather [Thomson]out for not inviting Aviva [Drescher] to her tenth anniversary party," LuAnn writes in her Bravo blog. "Heather does have a history of not inviting people who she thinks are going to ruin a good time, but it's her party and she can invite whomever she wants."
