Happy Friday the 13th! It’s time to see what our favorite reality TV people have been up to when they’re not gracing us with their on-screen presence. Ariana Madix headed to Kentucky with her Vanderpump Rules co-stars Tom Sandoval, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylorfor the 6th Annual Fillies & Stallions Kentucky Derby party.
Also getting fancy for a formal event: Kyle Richards and husband Mauricio Umansky. They, along with Faye Resnick, Kathy Hilton and Paris Hilton, attended the AltaMed Power Up, We Are The Future Gala at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons.
The women on Real Housewives of New York like to keep everything within their clique and this includes their men. I would love it if someone made a meme with a web of all the ladies and the dudes they have married and dated. If that ever happens, there will be a lot of overlap. Ramona Singer knows this firsthand since she just talked about how she dated Luann de Lesseps’sfiance Thomas D’Agostino Jr before he got with the Countess.
This is pretty shocking since Ramona has been pretty critical of Luann’s dating life so I can’t believe that they dated the same person. But anyway, I don’t know what “dating” means anymore. It’s such a vague term. Were they boyfriend and girlfriend? Did they go out on one date? Did they just hook up after some wild nights at Beautique? It’s abundantly unclear. Thankfully, Ramona clarified. Well, at least she did a little bit.
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.
