I have been watching the Real Housewives of New York from the very beginning, but I still find it so difficult to figure out where the relationships stand between the ladies. It is so hard to tell who is on good terms at any given moment. That coupled with the fact that watching a show about your clique is bound to resurface old feelings and a pretty vicious cycle is created.
Luann de Lesseps and Ramona Singer are original cast members on RHONY so I naively assume that they will always stick together, but I’m usually wrong about this. With that said, Luann has some pretty damning comments for her sometimes friend Ramona and Dorinda Medley‘s boyfriend John after watching the latest episode.
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, pretty much no one believed in Sonja Morgan or gave her the time of day except for Bethenny Frankel. Bethenny is arguably the busiest one in the bunch, but she still managed to make it to some of Sonja’s business meetings and attempt to serve as her mentor. She encouraged Sonja to be realistic while still being kind to her.
It looks like that’s all out the window. Even though Bethenny and Sonja were not in the same room at all during the most recent episode of RHONY, Sonja threw her name around a lot. She kept talking about how she wanted Bethenny to go to her birthday party/business launch and how she wanted Bethenny to be proud of her burgeoning Prosecco business. Well, it turns out that Bethenny is not at all supportive of Sonja’s latest attempt at entrepreneurship.
“They needed that,” the woman remarked calmly as Ramona and Dorinda held each other and cried after their blow-up. This woman needs to be making more appearances on Bravo.
However, we begin with psycho facialists. Sonja Morgan is getting human skin cells spread on her face, since placenta is too expensive to buy on the black market! Sonja needs to hook Yolanda up with Satoko!
Ramona shows up with two “interns” who are bartenders for the night. She clarifies that she pays her interns but says they don’t get college credit. Sonja’s interns get college credit but aren’t paid (which is very common). So, technically Ramona’s aren’t interns, they’re just employees…
I was absolutely loving Jules Wainstein during her first few episodes of Real Housewives of New York. She gorgeous, funny, and vulnerable. But then again, no one is perfect, especially on a reality TV show. And we all know that the second a person slips up and says something out of turn, that is something that will definitely end up on the show.
Needless to say, last week’s episode of RHONY was very awkward to watch. When Jules was discussing how rude Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel were in her Hamptons home, I got vicariously embarrassed for the woman. I adore Jules, but I just knew that she was going to receive a lot of backlash for an offhand comment that she made the second that I heard it. I’m sure you know what I’m referring to and the only good news here is that Jules knows it too. She feels horrible about it and is owning up to her words.
I completely understand that Kim had to take care of herself and focus on her sobriety and other personal matters, but she did take part in a reality show on Lifetime – Mother/Daughter Experiment – which makes me think that reality TV is not out of the question in a more general sense. With that said, there are plenty of reasons why RHOBH needs Kim back on the show.
In this week’s edition of reality star sightings – we have the Little Women: LA cast attending RuPaul’s DragCon over the weekend. And interestingly, it looks like Christy McGinty and Terra Jole aren’t sworn enemies any longer. The two were seen chatting it up and not a single drink glass was thrown! Also attending the event: former co-star Brittney “Freakabritt” Guzman and current cast member Tonya Banks.
Bethenny Frankel signed autographs for fans at the Kentucky Derby Day at Empire Casino in Yonkers, NY.
Rachel Zoe, David Foster and more attend the Annual Goldie’s Love In For Kids event in L.A.
TGIF, reality fans! We’ve got a quickie fresh photos Friday roundup for you! Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky enjoyed a little time together at the Ninth Annual George Lopez Celebrity Golf Classic Dinner. Kyle had a fashion “hit” with this floral dress, in my opinion! Not 100% sure I love the shoe choice, but overall she looks great.
Also looking good this week: Brandi Glanville. The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star stepped out for the Associates For Breast and Prostate Cancer Studies’ annual Mother’s Day Luncheon at Four Seasons Hotel with her former co-star Carlton Gebbia and her (stunning) daughters. Brandi toned down the makeup and it made a world of difference.
