Last night on Real Housewives of New York we celebrated the contrast between good and evil as if that isn’t the perpetual theme of these shows.
Carole Radziwill is turning 50 and wants to celebrate with an over-the-top party in the theme of Good vs. Evil, or basically Ramona and Aviva vs. Carole. Carole enlists her bestie Heather Thomson to plan it but her list of demands is staggering. Things Carole wants for her birthday party: butterflies, chandeliers from her house hung up at the restaurant, headless mannequins, a snake charmer, shiny red apples, a psychic (are we sure she doesn’t mean a psychiatrist?), fire breathing dragons with angels on their wings, 30 dozen white rose petals, the 12 horsemen of the apocalypse, three french hens, and a partridge in a pear tree. Oh and 6 well behaved Housewives, but we all know that ain’t gonna happen!
Heather decides to just be in charge of the booze and hires a party planner stat.
On Sunday, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin hosted the Second Annual Luxury Ladies Luncheon at her home in Southampton. The event raised money for the Samual Waxman Cancer Research Foundation.
When asked why she organizes the event, Jill shared, “It’s a very complicated event in the sense that there’s no one reason that I do it. I do it because I want to give stuff to my friends, I do it because I want to raise awareness for charity, and I do it because I want to have a good time.” I will volunteer as tribute if Jill wants to give me free stuff. Check out more pictures below.
In the upcoming season finale, we’re shown footage of Heather Thomson yelling and Aviva’s leg laying on the carpet. “During a wild argument” between cast members, “Aviva yells, ‘What do you want from me? To crawl out of here?’ All the while, she’s shimmying out of her prosthetic leg under the table,” a source reveals. Then Aviva “throws it, in front of a crowd of shocked people.”
As LuAnn de Lesseps’ fate with Bravo remains unknown, she’s finding other television ventures to keep her busy!
LuAnn announced that she has been working on a new TV show, but she’s not giving away any details just yet. With Real Housewives of New York‘s ratings pretty much in the toilet, there are rumors of another complete recast and it’s unclear just who will survive this latest cut.
Married to Medicine‘s season finale attracted 1.917 million fans, which is a whopping 1.1 million MORE viewers than last week. Leading into the reunion specials, the season two average is 1.76 million. While I think it’s obvious that Married to Medicine cannot stand on its own (the numbers plummeted both times RHOA didn’t air in front of it), I think Bravo will grant it a third season.

After Ramona Singer tried to insinuate that LuAnn was afraid to sing live at Birdland because she didn’t have Auto-tune at her disposal, LuAnn explains what happened, that she did actually sing, and also reveals that Sonja Morgan is seriously desperate delusional where Harry Dubin is concerned!
“I think all of us have issues with our men at the moment. . .,” LuAnn writes about the last episode of Real Housewives of New York. “Things between Jacques and myself have been getting tense lately. We have been bickering a lot more recently,” LuAnn admits.
Last night our ladies of the Empire State were finally back where they belonged – in Manhattan! Despite the calming days in Montana, a key Real Housewives of New York friendship is seeming to detonate!
Much like Survivor, these ladies are stranded on an island and forced into alliances. But Sonja Morgan is switching up the game. While interviewing a new intern in her backyard (which we so do not care about in the least), she’s wearing a fabulous military-inspired dress and preparing for friendship warfare. Into the garden wanders Aviva Drescher. Long time no see – and not missed!
Sonja immediately lobs a grenade – the entire trip all the girls were talking about Aviva (They were?) – but worst of all was Ramona Singer who accused Aviva of lying about asthma because she is afraid to travel without Reid.
Sonja Morgan wants everyone to know that the former Mrs. Morgan is still rolling in the dough, despite also rolling in the deep – deep debt that is!
She also accuses her Real Housewives of New York co-stars of “exploiting” her financial woes for a storyline and making things appear far graver than they are.
Are we sure about that? Because Sonja’s situation appears pretty grim based on reports – she owes $7 million dollars in a movie deal gone bust and her creditors accused her of hiding assets and stalling last year. And this year her St. Tropez home was sold by bankruptcy trustees after Sonja was dragging her feet in liquidating it herself. Still Sonja maintains that her finances are fine – just undergoing a bit of rearranging!
“Broke as a joke?! I am in a Chapter 11 reorganization, I am not in a Chapter 7 which is a liquidation,” Sonja insists. “To say I am broke while I am working and my daughter [Quincy, 13] is thriving under such immense pressure is unfair.”
