Between seasons, it’s easy to forget what an outrageous mess Ramona Singer is. Then Real Housewives Of New York rolls tape again and voila! We remember. This week, Ramona was seen wandering around Sonja Morgan’s house in shades while being hardcore shaded by Sonja’s butler who needs a Bravo contract immediately. She also paid a visit to Bethenny Frankel with Carole Radziwill – where Ramona adamantly denies kicking Bethenny’s puppy!
“I love dogs! The puppies were on the side of my feet jumping with excitement. I did not kick them!” defends Ramona, who was surprised to learn of Bethenny’s newly adopted pets. She was also surprised to hear Bethenny and Carole snarking behind her back: “I know this isn’t a big deal, but what is a big deal are the snarky rude comments behind my back between Carole and Bethenny saying I am crazy! I mean, like really! Talk about who starts sh–.” Existential dilemma: If Ramona says she is not crazy, and other people who are a bit crazy themselves call her crazy – WHO IS ACTUALLY CRAZY?
Luann is still in the honeymoon stage when it comes to this relationship. She’s so happy these days that she didn’t even have it in her heart to shade anyone during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live. I’m sure Andy Cohen was a little disappointed by that.
We open at Sonja’s house, where she’s dyeing her eyebrows and ordering interns to ferry her chocolate. Tinsley pops by to move the hell on in – complete with pillows! Once the “It Girl” girl of NYC, Tinsley fell hard when she splashed across the tabloids in stories revealing ongoing domestic disputes with her boyfriend, one of which resulted in her arrest. Tinsley, now less of an It Girl than a Who? Girl, is trying to rebuild her life. Mission one: find a different sort of guy to date. You know, one who you don’t need to call the police on weekly. Sonja is down for the cause.
On the season premiere, Ramona Singer used her crazy eyes to hypnotize Luann into believing she truly wishes her and Tom all the happiness in the world, and will stop speculating about their relationship. Then Ramona guzzled some Pinot and resumed her Googling.
Sonja wasn’t happy to watch the episode and hear what everyone was saying behind her back. At least she had some cute scenes with Bethenny Frankel. It’s surprising after their Tipsy Girl feud last year, but grudges are short-lived on this show. The best alliances friendships are constantly switching up.
Unlike a lot of reality TV stars who put a lot of effort into being interesting, Dorinda Medley is just naturally entertaining, at least in my opinion. She’s a little rough around the edges and always tells it like it is and I love it. Not only that, but she is a lady who never has any qualms sharing her opinions and I live for it.
I hate to be a hater, but it’s usually pretty tough for me to take any Real Housewives side projects seriously. As much as I love the housewives (which is a lot), it’s difficult for me to think them as actresses, lifestyle experts, entrepreneurs, or whatever else they claim to be. With that said, six current and former Housewives are set to star in a sitcom together.
Yes, you read that right- not a reality show, but a sitcom. Still, the show is a reality TV satire, so they aren’t straying too far from the norm.
I was so happy to watch the Real Housewives of New York premiere. I’ve been watching this show from the beginning and it feels like all of the cast members are my best friends in my head… not that any of them have any idea that I exist. My point here is that I’m super invested. With that said, I wasn’t wowed by the first episode of Season 9. Sure, I was happy to see everyone again, but not much happened. And that’s probably why Bethenny Frankel didn’t have too many specific comments following the episode.
I was excited to see all of the new faces (and you know what I mean by that) and to hear some hilarious one-liners, but as far as the plot went, pretty much nothing happened. Nevertheless, Bethenny insists that we should be ready for a hilarious season.
