Say what you will about Bethenny Frankel, but she knows how to get sh*t done. The Real Housewives Of New York star has sprung into action since the devastation of Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and its surrounding areas, rallying business, volunteers, and donations through her organization, B Strong.
So far, Bethenny’s efforts – largely spread through social media outreach – have recruited two hundred volunteers, $80k in donations, and thousands of supplies for disaster relief to those affected by the tragedy. Bethenny has also pledged, herself, to travel to Houston to aid in distribution of gift cards and organize outreach. Her fundraising efforts are geared toward women and families in crisis.
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. For Ramona Singer, season nine of The Real Housewives Of New York was surely the most dramatic of times. Now that she’s had a chance to reflect on the season, the three-part reunion, and viewer feedback, Ramona says she sees it all in a new light. And she opens up about the personal turmoil her divorce from Mario Singer threw her into, which affected her in ways we might not have seen.
Ramona’s latest blog is about as introspective as I’ve ever seen her, which is interesting. Is she feeling humbled by watching herself on TV, or is she in damage control? Either way, she opens up about her feelings on the season and what contributed to her actions. “To say I had a difficult season on RHONY is an understatement,” she begins. “As I watched back over the past few months, seeing myself has given me the opportunity to reflect and face the truth. The bottom line is, I behaved poorly.”
It really shouldn’t be a headline that Tom D’Agostino is seeing a few women since he was doing this before he dated Luann de Lesseps and while he was still with her, but apparently Tom is back on the market (not that he was ever truly off). Hopefully he is staying away from Real Housewives of New York cast members this time.
Not only is Tom back on the prowl, but there are also rumors that he’s been hanging with Missy Tool again- his former flame that Ramona Singer insisted on inviting to every event possible this past season.
The night starts out with lots of sex. Well, at least talking about it – which these ladies love to do. Tape rolls on the innuendos, accusations, and droll dinner conversation that uncovered more than we want to know about everyone’s sexcapades. Andy wonders if this is the most oversexed or undersexed group he’s ever seen? While some regret their words, like Tinsley, who admitted she went too far in discussing her sex life with ex-husband, Topper, Sonja doesn’t regret a thing. But does Sonja like the back door more than the front door? She opens any door! As long as it’s not Tinsley’s hat delivery guy on the other side of it.
When Ramona Singergot the invite to join Bethenny Frankel’s ski trip in Vermont during the last Real Housewives of New York season, it would make sense for to feel grateful that she was included since she and Bethenny were feuding all season long. Instead, she didn’t seem impressed and had the nerve to remark, “I only ski Aspen.”
So it’s only fitting that Ramona returned to one of her favorite places for a little rest and relaxation.
When Tinsley Mortimer first joined the cast of Real Housewives of New York, she honestly didn’t have much of a story line other than “starting over” in New York City and talking about her mug shot whenever she had the chance. The season progressed for Tinsley when Carole Radziwill introduced her to Scott Kluth and the two instantly became a couple.
Not only that, but Carole and Tinsley starred in commercials for Scott’s company Coupon Cabin. It seems like things are really coming together for Tinsley since she revealed during the reunion that she will be moving in with her new man in the fall. She has also secured a job at Scott’s company.
After two seasons of defending Tom D’Agostino’sshady tactics, Luann de Lesseps finally announced that the couple is divorcing… after a mere seven months of marriage. As sad as that is for her- everyone who watches Real Housewives of New Yorkknows how much she reveled in being a newlywed- it’s also pretty disappointing for the viewers because the announcement came right after the reunion was taped.
That means that the viewers have to sit through three one-hour episodes of Lu going to bat for Tom even though we all know better. Luckily Luann will be doing a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen to address the divorce since most of the information “revealed” at the reunion has become outdated and irrelevant.
Get yourselves adjusted and comfortable, because it’s time to rehash the drama from last night’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion, part two. Bethenny Frankel breaks down over the custody hell she went through this year. Carole Radziwill and Tinsley Mortimer are actually permitted to speak (whoa!), and Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer – well, they continue to be the national treasures they are. And I can’t help wishing these two would totally change, yet not change at all. The same goes for the entire cast, when it comes down to it. Their brand of crazy just…works.
