Last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York left a big question mark over my head. Am I stupid is as stupid does? Because why exactly is Bethenny Frankel so angry atJules Wainstein? Actually, angry isn’t the world, “spooked” is. And what exactly did Bravo NOT show us that is so pertinent to what caused this explosion? Color me three shades of ‘Bethenny lost 10% of her blood’ pale.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are at war over getting onTom D’Agostino‘s jock (exactly how many millions is he packing?!). Tom happens to be the current fiancé of Luann de Lesseps, once dated Ramona Singer (two or three times, or seven – depending on who you ask), and possibly spent the last decade playing undercover friends with benefits with Sonja Morgan. Disgusted Confused yet? I’m surprised these so-called classy ladies are so comfortable with hippie-hippie notions of free love!
Luann De Lesseps‘ so called “friends” have had a lot to say about her fiance, Tom D’Agostino on The Real Housewives of New York lately. Tom, who Luann plans to wed on New Year’s Eve in Palm Beach, hasn’t had much of a chance to defend himself though. Now he’s speaking out to clarify the rumors that he 1) dated Ramona Singer seriously and 2) hooked up with Sonja Morgan over a period of 10 years. The answer to both rumors, according to Tom? Nope, and nope.
“I don’t watch the show, but I get different pieces here and there, and a lot of the stuff I have heard? It’s so outlandish to me,” says Tom. Not sure I’m buying his line of not watching the show, but Sonja and Ramona spewing forth outlandish commentary? Absolutely! Then again, Tom could just be covering up his sordid past with the ladies. No one wants to be dubbed another Slade Smiley!
After being accused of unprofessionalism and “diva behavior” by her hair extensions business partner, Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club,Ramona Singer is firing back. Sources confirm that Ramona was fired from Lux, however Ramona claims the issue all comes down to money – or lack thereof.
The Real Housewives of New York spitfire snarked, “If being a ‘diva’ is asking to be paid for work done, then everyone should be a diva.” This statement came after Flores accused Ramona of having a bad attitude at a recent promotional event for their hair extensions. After the event at Harmon’s beauty store, Flores emailed Ramona, “We were incredibly disappointed with your attitude at Harmon’s and our [return on investment] on you has been less than overwhelming.”
Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
The Apologist may be making the rounds yet again, this time in her business life. Ramona Singer’s partnership to market hair extensions with Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club may be null and void after a brief business relationship. Why? Because of Ramona’s “diva behavior,” of course!
Ramona reportedly wanted her new hair extensions venture to feature prominently into this season’s Real Housewives of New York, but is the business dead before it even started? In an email to Ramona last week, a fed-up Flores apparently scolded the reality star about her entitled attitude. “You are not Angelina Jolie!” she barked. (Ahahahahaha! I have got to stop laughing in order to keep typing. This is just so, so – spot on!)
Besides getting her coochie-coo checked out by a plastic surgeon this week,Jules Wainstein didn’t play a large role on The Real Housewives of New York. So…she’s decided to talk more about LAST week’s episode! In her blog, Jules reiterates her disdain for mean girls, namely Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. (I may be numbed by watching WAY too much reality TV, but if Jules thinks what she’s experienced is truly mean girl behavior from her cast mates….well, strap in and get a helmet, girlfriend!)
Jules begins, “It takes a lot to get me angry. I always go into situations with an open heart and mind and give everyone the benefit of the doubt, but there is only so much negative energy I can stand until even I get defensive and lash out. I believe that people should take responsibility for the energy they bring into the room, and recognize that this energy shapes and affects our interactions with others.”
I figured that watching yourself on reality TV would make you a very reflective person and give you inspiration to make self improvements or at the very least make yourself look better after saying embarrassing shit. Apparently this is not really the case when it comes to Luann de Lesseps.
For some reason Luann expressed that she thought that the other women on Real Housewives of New York were jealous of her engagement to Tom D’Agostino during the last episode. If anything, the women were just shocked that she got engaged so quickly to someone who was “dating” both Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan pretty recently. Time has passed and the episode has aired and Luann has not clarified her statements. Instead, she maintains that the other women are super envious of her love life…
