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.
According to a new report Aviva Drescher's father George, the perverted and too risque for TV octogenarian has landed a Bravo spinoff with his future wife Cody. Immediately this sounded fishy to me because of the outraged fan response to George's on-air sexual harassment, but then I remember Patti Stanger has a show, so…
“Even though the current season of RHONY is a ratings flop, the breakout stars are Aviva’s dad, and Lavette,” George and Cody a source told Radar Online. “Fans have very strong reactions to both of them as individuals, and of course as a couple. Dana’s show doesn’t have a working title yet, but will begin filming at the end of August.”
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies continued to terrorize Montana like a plague. The beautiful surroundings of wild Montana shrank beneath the force of their bickering, bad behavior, and crying orgasms. And Cowboy Paul stroked his gun lovingly and thought, thank goodness I've got this to protect me in the apocalypse.
In the luxury accommodations, Tweedle Drunk and Tweedle Do Me are bored and suffering from cabin fever. Carole Radziwill is suffering from being too long in the asylum – serves her right for trying to observe crazies in their native environment. To assuage her boredom Sonja Morgan invites the sexy (and very young) ranch hand over to clean out the kitchen while she swans around in a negligee swatting at him with a toilet brush. I am positive she molested him by the seductive light of the fridge. Carole lost her breakfast.
Sonja is bitter that they'll be spending another night at the ranch instead of out in the town sizing up the locals – there could be hot and swarthy cowboys ready for a Mrs. Robinson adventure with a big city gal. Sonja apparently thinks Reese Weather-spoon is out there, just waiting to have fun. Instead Kristen Taekman has planned a chef to come and make dinner for the girls. Sonja is over personal chefs – she does this everyday! With what budget? I wasn't aware that Groupon offered this?
Ramona Singer has been very brave this summer – she left the Hamptons for a vacation to St. Barths with husband Mario Singer in an effort to save their marriage. Ramona filed for divorce from Mario when it emerged that he was having an affair, however a few months later she let her husband move back in after he promised to ditch mistress Kasey Dexter.
Kasey retaliated by going to the press with steamy stories about Mario and details about their relationship. Mario and Ramona have tried to silence her with cease and desist letters, but Kasey won't back down. And since it's probably all true they can't legally sue for slander! In an effort to rebuild their marriage the couple was supposed to be on a romantic vacation, but instead they're arguing over Ramona's drinking! Too much turtle time
Witnesses say Ramona was really hitting the pinot over dinner the night before and got a little out of control. “Ramona and Mario were at the pool on Sunday afternoon, and he was very upset that she had had over indulged at dinner Saturday night,” a source told Radar Online. “Specifically, according to Mario, Ramona had too much to drink."
Admittedly, I do this every time a newbie joins a franchise. I fall in major like with the fresh face only to come back and bite my words a few seasons later. Real Housewives of New York is no different. I love Kristen Taekman. I adore that she's friends with Carole Radziwill and (Holla!) Heather Thomson. She's even a good sport with LuAnn deLesseps (who I like more now that she's in smaller doses) and Sonja Morgan. Best of all? She finds Aviva Drescher to be a total nut job…and, truth be told, I was quite the Aviva fan her freshman season. Hey, at least I realize my shortcomings, right?
Beginning her Bravo blog, Kristen jokes, "Yup, the 'new girl' is taking all these fancy NY Ladies to Montana. Naturally, Carole and I need a wax. Funny, so Carole and I spoke that morning and go figure, we both had waxes that day at the same place so we decided to go together! Don't all girlfriends go to hold their friend's hands while they get their kitty waxed? Ha ha! I roll in wax for real. I wax everything! Arms, legs, mustache, brows, kitty…TMI I know — but after all, this is a reality show! So we are waxed and ready for Montana! PS. Carole is a natural blonde who knew?? #shhhhhhhh" Bwahahaha! TMI, Kristen. T.M.I.
