Describing Luann as “Teflon,” Jill explains that the Countess has craftily managed to survive nine seasons on this cutthroat show by consistently shifting frienemies when the time is right and only having allegiance to herself. We do know how Luann loves herself and all.
Another week, another Jill Zarin resurgence on Bravo. This woman is seriously everywhere all of a sudden. The thirst is real, but it’s certainly entertaining. From showing up on Real Housewives of New York (again) to appearing on Watch What Happens Live, the fandom got a double dose of Jill last night.
Yes, Luann de Lesseps was there too, but she didn’t say anything new. We get it: she loves Tom D’Agostino, they’re so happy, she found her soulmate, they’ve been through so much. It’s come to a point where I feel like I could do an interview on Luann’s behalf and answer all of the questions using the same phrases that she would. Obviously, that’s a sad thing for me. Clearly I read and watch way too much RHONY content, but whatever. You’re reading this, so on some level you must get me.
After months of deflection, derailment, and Tom D’Agostino’s devilish doings, Countess Luann de Lesseps finally married the man who offers her the lifestyle of her dreams. Yes, Mrs. Luann D’Agostino is now a commoner! Jet setting to Palm Beach, vacationing in Aspen, lolling around the balcony of her Manhattan penthouse wondering whether she should eat another peeled grape. In short, she’s just like us! If we were filthy rich and married to questionable dudes. But the ladies of The Real Housewives Of New York aren’t quite done questioning Luann’s every move, and they have another chance to openly gawk at her happiness when she invites them to a post-wedding celebration.
Speaking of parties, Bethenny Frankel hosts one of her own – but guess who’s not invited? Okay, we all know it’s Ramona Singer. Because homegirl went NUCLEAR last week in the Berkshires and is persona non grata to both Bethenny and Dorinda Medley now. Poor Dorinda is still resurrecting her house from the Ramonsoon that all but destroyed the joint, not to mention Sonja Morgan jacking her PJ’s in broad daylight! There’s also moving afoot. As in: Adam moving out of Carole Radziwill’slitterbox apartment, and Frenchie moving into Sonja’s townhouse. Tinsley Mortimer, as always, is left pondering the life choices that brought her to this tragic rung on the downwardly mobile socialite ladder.
I really don’t understand the tension between Shep Rose and Craig Conover on Southern Charm. Aside from the fact that they are both pretty similar, I don’t see why there is so much animosity between the two of them and why they are constantly calling each other out, but it’s getting old.
During the last Watch What Happens Live episode, Shep called Craig out via tweet for calling him out on the show for trying to get with Chelsea Meissner while she was clearly with Austen Kroll. Yes, I get that sounds confusing, but they both came out swinging. Next time Andy Cohen needs to have them both in the clubhouse. That would definitely be an interesting episode.
Every year I can’t help feeling bad for Dorinda Medleywhen the Real Housewives of New York ladies visit her Berkshires house. She is the perfect hostess and the women always behave terribly… which is a major understatement. This year Ramona Singer went bat shit crazy and berated Bethenny Frankel before she wrecked Dorinda’s walls and ripped out the light fixtures.
Not only that but Sonja Morgan decided to wear Dorinda’s pajamas that she had in storage since they were a gift from her late husband. And this was after they started a fire in Dorinda’s nonworking fireplace. Dorinda was the most patient hostess of all time, but they went way too far this time.
Aside from throwing her legs up in the air, Bethenny kept it cool, considering all of the insults Ramona was hurling her way. Ramona was out of her mind and then she had the audacity to pull the “I don’t remember what I said” card during her on camera interview. Please, girl. No one is buying that.
This Real Housewives of New York season has been pretty lackluster so far, but Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel’s argument in the Berkshires amped up the excitement. Ramona really took things to another level with her outburst of insults. Later she pulled a #TotalHousewivesMove and claimed that she “didn’t remember” whatever she said to Bethenny. Right. As if any of us believe that.
Now that some time has passed, the episode has aired, and people are hating on Ramona, she is defending herself. Not only that, but she’s addressing the destruction she (allegedly) left behind at Dorinda Medley‘s Berkshires house.
