You know, I’m coming around on Kristen Taekman. She expertly made herself invisible during most of the drama that encircled Sonja Morgan on the Turks and Caicos trip, and she was the mastermind behind dumping a bucket of ice water on Ramona Singer. What’s not to like about that? Whether she was brokering a (flimsy) truce with Bethenny Frankel or acting as the arm of vengeance with the Ramonacoaster, Kristen was a breath of fresh air amidst the stale arguments that haunt this season of Real Housewives of New York.   

In her blog this week, Kristen discusses why Ramona is “the root of all problems” with her “two faced” behavior, how she feels Dorinda Medley’s argument with Heather Thomson was ridiculous, and the bonding she did with the house chef. Because he was the only sane person on the trip. “The chef was the sweet guy that had a newborn baby. We spoke a lot about his first child and how wonderful the experience had been for him. He taught me some tricks in the kitchen like how to poach an egg. We talked about how he got into cooking, as well as life on the island of Turks and Caicos.” This explains where Kristen was during most of the Sonja meltdown: “If you were wondering where I was in most of this episode, maybe I was in the kitchen talking with the chef or taking a nap while the other girls ran to sign up for massages. I was really treating this trip as what it was for me: a vacation.  



Heather Thomson was faring pretty well during the first leg of the Real Housewives of New York Turks and Caicos trip, given the fact that she and Bethenny Frankel have finally found some common ground after much angst over meatballs and getting up in one another’s “jocks.” But this week things took a turn when Dorinda Medley started in on Heather over walking too far ahead of her to dinner one evening. In her blog, Heather discusses what she calls the “#LamestFightInRHWHistory!” and more, including her vow to stay out of Sonja Morgan’s business.

Heather begins by revisiting Sonja’s blowup about all of the women “ganging up on her,” a situation Heather claims did not occur. What did occur is Ramona Singer stirring the pot, then licking the spoon. “I’m not a professional, and I don’t judge other people’s situations,” says Heather, “so all I can do is bear witness to Sonja’s unpredictable behavior. And I will no longer comment on it. But if anyone was the first to comment about Sonja, it has been Ramona.”



Yay! It’s that time of the week again when Real Housewives of New York’s Dorinda Medley takes us on on the crazy, sense-makin’, straight talkin’ ride that is her blog. This week she reflects on why she’s proud of Sonja Morgan for standing her ground against Bethenny Frankel, why she loves Ramona Singer “like a sister” despite ‘Mona’s ridiculousness, and why wearing a once piece, well-made swimsuit is always the right choice in poolside lounge wear! #burntheyellowbikini 

“Hello boys and girls! Welcome to storytime with Aunt Dori. Before we get started with this week’s adventure, a disclaimer: Everyone is crazy. Thanks,” begins Dorinda. Starting with her commentary on the Parkside dinner, Dorinda says more shade was served than rolls that night. “It was a handful of bitchery, and I feel like I overstepped and should have just kept my damn mouth shut about Sonja—or better yet, just defended her more. Who am I to pipe in, really? I have gone through so much grief (sometimes literally) in my life, and the one thing I needed most was a good support system.”

While some of the Real Housewives of New York ladies have already boarded the crazy train on their Turks and Caicos trip, Heather Thomson surprisingly laid low on this week’s episode (though heightened drama between her and Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps has been teased in previews for this trip all season!). In her blog, Heather comments on Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan’s race for rooms, her relief over a (temporary) truce with Bethenny, and lastly – all things Yummie Tummie.

“Turks and Caicos is already off to a crazy start with Ramona and Sonja manically choosing rooms,” begins Heather. “The house was beautiful and featured seven bedrooms…No need for room-gate! We eventually figured it out.” While the tipsy twins were commandeering rooms that suited their fancy, Heather was apparently having a “normal” conversation with Bethenny – something, she points out, the Bravo cameras didn’t really capture. (Where was Carole Radziwill’s Blair Witch Project handheld cam!?) “It’s always so interesting to see what’s covered on the show, because while you might get to see one thing going on, something else you might not see is always happening at the same time. I was much more interested in my conversation with Bethenny. We’re finally talking normally–hooray!”


Bethenny Frankel & Carole Radziwill vacation in the Galapagos Islands

When Housewives worlds collide it usually involves Bravo – not this time! Lisa Hochstein posted gorgeous photos of her recent Galápagos Islands vacation, when we noticed something funny… during that same time, Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel were also on a yacht in the Galápagos Islands, frolicking with sea lions, and hopefully keeping their hands to themselves where the bikini regions are concerned!

A quick Google search confirmed that the Real Housewives Of New York stars and new besties set sail upon a yacht chartered by billionaire investor Mark. J. Ledger, who hired invited 100 friends to cruise the Galápagos Islands. Included in that list of primarily women were Lisa, Carole, and Bethenny. Plus another surprising Bravo-connected addition – rumored new Real Housewives Of New Jersey star Traci Lynn Johnson


Luann de Lesseps performs 'Girl Code' on WWHL

As the ladies of Real Housewives Of New York took off for a trip to Turks and Caicos, so too did the drama! The foremost expert in etiquette and chic-ness, Luann de Lesseps, can now add “Girl Code” enforcer to her list of manners specialties. With a new song on the matter, Luann tackles all the violations of her castmates and discusses the emotional tsunami that is Ramona Singer!

Beginning with trouble at the Warwick Hotel, Luann knew it was too much to expect that her supposed friends would be supportive of her clothing venture, but chic c’est le vie! “You can have the best of everything and there’s still drama,” accepts Luann. “Ramona did admit she was a bit harsh on Kristen [Taekman] and that her timing wasn’t the best, so hopefully they’ll move forward and forget the whole thing.”


Ramona Singer apologizes

Reflecting back on her yellow bikini-clad, room-snatching ways during the first night of the Real Housewives of New York’s Turks and Caicos trip, Ramona Singer blogs about why she though Bethenny Frankel’s timing was off with Sonja Morganand how her new bond with Kristen Taekman was a nice surprise. 

Ramona being Ramona, she sees her behavior a bit differently than the other ladies when it comes to choosing rooms on vacation. “I felt like a little kid looking for the room for Sonja and me to share. The ladies all take separate rooms, but ever since the Morocco trip, Sonja and I always room together,” claims Ramona. “It was quite humorous with all of us running around like squirrels looking for the nuts.” 


Bethenny Frankel cannot get through to Sonja Morgan

This season’s Real Housewives of New York is all about fixing. Heather Thomson is trying to fix Bethenny Frankel. while Bethenny (and everyone else) is trying to fix Sonja Morgan. A handful of the ladies are trying to fix Ramona Singer up with a new man (God bless him, poor soul). And Kristen Taekman is praying to keep a fixed Bravo paycheck for another season. Sonja, for her part, is just trying keep her house standing up and her bathing suit parts glued together while she reaches for another drink to dull the pain of her many, many delusions of grandeur.

In her blog, Bethenny revisits the first installment of the ladies trip to Turks and Caicos, just the beginning of the wild ride to come, she says. But first, Bethenny revisits her confrontation with Kristen at Luann de Lesseps’ fashion soiree. “Let me back up and clean up the Kristen mess. I said it best at Luann’s party: I may have an opinion on the choices that someone makes in business, but that doesn’t mean that I’m going to walk up and get in someone’s face about it.”
