At this point in the season, it’s clear that Carole and Bethenny aren’t as close as they used to be, but nothing has really happened yet. There has been some underlying tension in every episode, but it hasn’t truly come to a head. That hasn’t stopped Carole from the spoiling the fact that the former close friends are not on good terms these days. In contrast, Bethenny hasn’t said much about it in public, other than unfollowing Carole on Instagram. Does she not care? Is she just trying to keep the spoilers under wraps? Maybe she’s just too busy saving the world and running her empire. Nevertheless, I’m sure those zingers are coming.
Thinking as a hypothetical reality TV producer, I assume that this would be a very interesting time to film Don’t Be Tardy. The always polarizing Kim Zolciakis embroiled in controversy after her appearance on the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. The women called her out. They showed multiple flashback clips to refute her blatant lies. They even showed her behind-the-scenes bathroom chat with Andy Cohen where she complained about the questions she was asked and the fact that no one stood up for her.
Andy even put her in check when he said, “There was nothing positive, unfortunately, in your story from the season. It was all combative.” All the bridges have been burned. Saying that it was “not a good look” for Kim is the understatement of the year. Nevertheless, it could provide some interesting footage for her show Don’t Be Tardy– or at least that’s what I assumed. Clearly I was wrong since there are reports that Kim halted production on Season 7 of her show in response to the reunion backlash.
There are few things more entertaining than a Dorinda Medleyfreak out. As her friend in my mind, I do feel bad whenever she is upset, but I cannot help being entertained every time she rants against Sonja Morgan– or whoever offended her, but it is usually Sonja.
For years Sonja has been talking about her divorce, her daughter starting boarding school and European yacht parties as if this was all current news. For the most part Sonja’s delusion and confusion is endearing and funny, but Dorinda had enough of it in the Hamptons. Sonja dared to compare her divorce (which was finalized in 2006) to death of Dorinda’s husband and Dorinda just couldn’t let it slide.
Almost every Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsviewer would name Dorit Kemsleyas the villain of this season. That makes a lot of sense, but if you give it another thought Dorit might be the villain and the hero of Season 8. As ridiculous as that sounds, just hear me out.
The first couple seasons of this show focused on real issues: alcoholism, infidelity, divorce, family dynamics. This season was essentially a lifestyle show with more time devoted to watching the women pick outfits and get their makeup done than anything close to an actual story line. Yes, we have Dorit to blame for arguments about glassware and holding up the group with her constant tardiness, but if she didn’t give us that, what else would we have? A show about glam squads, riding horses, and self-promotion. Dorit didn’t deliver top notch drama, but she’s the only one that really gave us something to talk about- even if it was something to complain about.
Shannon just launched her own line of prepared foods at QVC which is exciting enough, but she continued to live her best life by turning the launch into a girls trip with her daughter Sophie and her RHOCcostar Tamra Judge.
Owning a clothing store has caused a lot of drama for Melissa Gorga. At first, she wasn’t getting support from her husband when she wanted to start her own business. She has competed with rival (and fellow boutique owner) Kim DePaola. She lost her business partner who ended up suing her.
After many attempts to be on good terms throughout the years, it seems like Kenya Mooreand Porsha Williams finally came to a genuine truce during the last episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 10 reunion. Who knows if this will actually last, but they vowed to stop calling each other “whores” and “prostitutes”…. unless it’s actual a true description/occupation.
Before that, Porsha and Kenya discussed the accusation that a one-eyed African was bankrolling Kenya’s life a couple of reunions ago. Kenya maintained that wasn’t true and that Porsha just made that up to get back at her.
On top of that, Robyn’s go-to girl in the cast, Gizelle Bryant, wasn’t around for all the drama because she was at an event in the Hamptons. This means that Robyn had to fend for herself- at the time. Now Gizelle is coming to her friend’s defense.
