She begins, "I shouldn't say Kristen or Carole are bad hostesses. They just don't have the experience I have. It's been my business for decades now. I throw parties every week. I have dinner every night at my home, for no less then five people on average, and sometimes I have last minute dinners for tens of people impromptu. I'm asked many times to organize a Sonja In the City event in a matter of days. When someone else's plan falls through they can always count on me. I also have huge team of people I have cultivated over years to do public relations, sponsor events, perform, help with the invites, RSVPs, decor, and anything you can think of when throwing throwing an event. For example the Sonja In The City charity event in East Hampton became tricky because I needed places for 90 actors, Broadway performers, dancers, and singers to stay. That was not easy, but my contacts over the years came through. Hotels, homes, yachts, you name it, they stayed there."
Last night the ladies of Real Housewives of New York continued to glamp in the muck of Montana. The country air doesn't seem to be doing much to restore their constitutions, but it does seem to be causing them a great, aggrieved case of boredom. I have no idea how long they were stranded out there – alone, in luxury cabins, without butlers and forced to clear their own breakfast dishes – but one thing is for sure: Kristen Taekman is a horrible hostess!
It seems that Kristen can't do anything right. She can't make the air conditioner cool enough to quell Ramona Singer's hot flashes. She can't find someone to fillSonja Morgan's bed – and Sonja has resorted to wearing underwear. She can't get Heather Thomson to take her seriously or care what she thinks. And worst of the worst of the worst of all – she can't get anyone to Geocache!
After being missing from several intros earlier in the season, Aviva was back (and with her revolting father). Rumor was Aviva was temporarily fired for being a complete diva and refusing to attend mandatory cast functions.
The entire time the cast has been filming in Montana (yes – they're STILL there! #MostBoringHWTripEver!), Aviva has not made an appearance or been featured in the intro. Aviva claimed she could not attend the trip due to extreme asthma – asthma no one had ever heard of before.
Andy Cohen explains why Aviva's appearance have been so scattered and the truth behind her Scooby Doo style intro! "She's not in about five or six of the episodes this season," Andy reminds us.
Bravo has been having trouble with Real Housewives of New York for quite some time. They fired four ladies, hired three new ones and then waited over a year to air the sixth season. In between there was a slew of hiring and casting drama that included the Housewives going on strike!
Now ratings are low as viewers have seemingly lost interest in the Pinot and Commado show – or they forgot the show existed during the long hiatus. With that comes a rumor that Bravo is looking to do another sweeping recast and basically clear the deck once more.
There isn't much to report on this week's reality TV viewer numbers. The shows either remained steady or gained a handful of viewers – no big losses, which is good, because most of these shows can't afford to lose any fans. On Sunday, Kandi's Wedding saw a season high with 2.557 million tuning in to see Kandi's bachelorette party, and Married to Medicine garnered 1.706 million viewers.
After all the time she spent in Montana isolated with Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer (aka Commando and Pinot), Carole Radziwill needs a break. Big time. You can feel her frustration seeping out of her Bravo blog. You could feel my frustrations as I screamed at the TV for them to shut it. And put the wine down. Advice Carole echoes.
Carole admits that she grew tired of the drinking, complaining, going commando, and mostly that neither Sonja nor Ramona had a nice thing to say to Kristen Taekman. But most frustrating to Carole was that Sonja didn't seem to care that she hurt LuAnn de Lesseps' feelings. Let's break down what she has to say!
First of all – the obvious. "Sonja is drinking. Again," writes Carole. "Sonja brings up a sore subject. Again." Carole explains just why LuAnn was hurt by Sonja entertaining the facialist's gossip.
