Sonja begins her blog expressing surprise at LuAnn’s feelings about their friendship this season: “I was shocked when Luann said our relationship has been deteriorating for two years. This comes as a big surprise to me, since everything was cool with her and I until I saw her at the reunion for Season 6.” Sonja coyly adds, “I know who put what in her head.”
Ramona Singer and Aviva Drescher have had their spats this season and Ramona shared with Radar Online (note: not a paid magazine cover/article!) that she feels her co-star has some …issues.
Ramona tells Radar that she has evolved this season, while Aviva is filled with anger. “I was looking back at that episode, and it shows you how I have evolved as a person, the Ramona of five years ago would have handled the situation much differently. I realize that she has a lot of anger in her, I don’t think she’s a happy woman and she misplaces it on me. She basically bullied me with all her comments. That I cheated on my husband, that I’m not a great mother, basically it’s just her own unhappiness and anger was just spewing out. Whatever I do in my life it’s my business I’m an adult she’s not my mother."
Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New York City was all about vaginas, vacations, and Pinot… again. Jill Zarin is hosting an anti-bullying fundraiser, and while guests are paying $200 to attend, the irony of Jill championing this event is priceless. Kelly accidentally sees Sonja’s ladybits, Cindy takes her good friends on a “brunettes only” weekend, New Housewife Pinot Grigio high-jacks Jill’s charity event, and sweet LuAnn just wants everyone to get along, dammit!
The episode begins with LuAnn and Sun-yah meeting for lunch to discuss a girls trip. LuAnn is planning to “break the tension” between the ladies. Since this is a classy restaurant, Sonja, predictably arrives straight from the gym with a fur thrown over her sports bra. Sonja states she wants to go to Italy for Truffle Season (that’s a thing?) because “everyone will be there!” Everyone except the NY Housewives, that is, because LuAnn is just so over Italy and wants to vacation somewhere exotic. Somewhere like Morocco, which is the Paris of the Middle East, didn’t you know? Bravo, desperate to capitalize on a repeat of Scary Island, decides Luann must “invite” all the ladies, but LuAnn has some reservations about Kelly being included because no one wants “Scary Desert” on the horizon. Well, no one but Bravo, because ratings are everything dah-ling, so Kelly is IN!
