We’ve been hearing for weeks now that the Real Housewives Of New York reunion is devastating, “terrible” and that the cast will never recover from the level of vitriol. True to form, Bravo is spreading all the gory details into a three grueling episodes.
Bethenny Frankel had Carole Radziwill on her radio show again last week. The two Real Housewives of New York co-stars broadcast B Real with Bethenny from the Hamptons. They dished on everything from Carole’s sex life with Adam Kenworthy, the BRUTAL Real Housewives of New York reunion coming up and they gossiped about their co-stars – lawsuits, drugs and more!
Dorinda Medley recently did a Facebook Live chat about this season of Real Housewives Of New York. She showed up in a pair of $14.99 over-the-counter spectacles to dish on all the drama – including the reunion and Luann de Lesseps‘ relationship with Tom D’Agostino. Dorinda promises the next few episodes, featuring the salacious texts Bethenny Frankel possesses will be a major game-changer which will divide, not only the cast, but the viewers. Yowzers!
Dorinda begins by admitting she doesn’t mind being the pot stirrer, because she’s pot-stirring with purpose by playing the role of “investigative reporter” (Take that Carole Radziwill!) to get to the bottom of all the “conflicting stories.”
“I may be a bit of a pot stirrer, but I’m just trying to do the right thing by all the women,” Dorinda explains. “I guess, I’m sort of the go-between… Each action I’ve done, I’ve done with a pure heart and good intention.”
This Real Housewives of New Yorkseason isn’t even over yet, but I am already pumped up for the reunion episodes. There is nothing quite like watching the Housewives argue with each other over the past season’s drama.
Not only do I love to see the ladies rehashing the controversy, but I also love seeing them all spray tanned and dressed to impress while they try to take each other down. That contrast between them looking classy and getting catty is just too good to resist. There have been no clips released from the reunion yet, but thankfully the ladies posted some behind the scenes photos on social media.
In the video clip, the cast starts out chatting with Andy about which other RH show they’d like to join because when he asked RHOBH stars about it, they all said New York. (Bethenny Frankel wants to go to Atlanta for a HW swap) Then they shared which Housewives they’d love to bring on their show. Dorinda says Brandi, Luann would bring Lisa in and Sonja says Kyle. Andy turns the Brandi talk to Kristen , who is BFFs with Brandi. He comments that Brandi had a very rough season on Beverly Hills. Andy asks if there’s anything Kristen would like to say in Brandi’s defense; does Kristen think Brandi was misrepresented? “I definitely think she was misrepresented [last season on RHOBH]. I think that she’s going through a very hard time, and continues to, like many of the women on this cast have been going through some rough times.”
Andy shares a sneak peak of all the drama and reveals some surprising things that happened on reunion day. And of course some not so surprising things, like that Luann de Lesseps got into it big time with Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson! “Luann was guns blazing and I have never seen her so fired up,” reveals Andy.
Last night was the first segment of the Real Housewives of New York reunion. There was a definite divide between the demeanor of the veterans and the demeanor of the newbies last night. And by that, I mean the oldies came prepared to fight, get vicious, down and dirty while the newbies obviously didn't do their research and came prepared to recap the season and discuss.
Reunions are both my favorite shows to watch and my least favorite to recap. My favorite to watch because we get an unfiltered glimpse of the ladies, but they're a real beast to recap because the accusations are flying and the screaming is coming at you from all sides. Meanwhile I'm just trying to assess what everyone is wearing and who looks the worst. In the case of RHONY that award always, without fail, goes to Pinot Singer and last night was no exception.
I'm pretty sure the Project Runway "Unconventional Materials" challenge dress Pinot wore was constructed from old plastic bags on the top and my grandmother's living room sheers on the bottom. All dyed Crayola royal blue. Madame, you are in need of an intervention. Please refrain from drinking and dressing for the duration.
