RHONY

Real Housewives Of New York Recap:

Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” has basically been my anthem while anxiously awaiting Real Housewives of New York. Well guess, what? They’re back with all the camel toe, cultural appropriation, and drunken drama we’ve come to expect from these Upper East Siders. Throw in Luann de Lesseps’ recent shenanigans, and it’s a cocktail Carrie Bradshaw herself would endorse.

Ramona Singer is drinking coffee from a mug that reads, “Keep Calm…Take a Xanax.” If there was ever a more appropriate opening scene for any season premiere of a housewives franchise, this is it. The women are readying for a day in the Big Apple, with Carole Radziwill running through Manhattan and Tinsley Mortimer failing to potty train her mini-dog.  Dorinda Medley is razor focused on planning a massive Halloween party. The theme is “Famous People: Dead or Alive” and Dorinda is channeling her inner Gaga. Unfortunately for Dorinda, she didn’t read the fine print on her Amazon order, and instead of the infamous Lady Gaga bubble dress, she received a box full of clear plastic orbs. She should store them for a future crafting sesh. Decorated with holly and scary Santas, they’d make the perfect addition to her Berkshires Yuletide menagerie. Of course, if you’re a RHONY, you’ve got a costume designer who works at SNL on speed dial who is willing to help out for a name drop. Done and done.

Carole Radziwill Admits Friendship Bethenny Frankel Is On The Rocks; Dishes On RHONY Cruise From Hell & Break Up With Adam

I admit it – I’m kinda excited to see the decline of Brazi, aka Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill‘s friendship. I never personally believed either woman was sincere in their so-called love for each other, and it seemed mainly like a relationship of convenience and alliance.

This season of Real Housewives Of New York Carole is very-much a single lady in all respects – she’s flying solo in the friendship department, but she’s also done with much-younger boyfriend Adam Kenworthy (finally because that relationship was annoying). Below Carole dishes on getting a parasite during RHONY’s vacation from hell, why she and Adam broke up, and the status of things with Bethenny.

Luann de Lesseps pink jumpsuit

Having class with the countess means admitting when you’re down for the count – in this case it means Luann de Lesseps checking into rehab following an arrest for drunken and disorderly conduct.

A few months sober, the Real Housewives Of New York star can’t believe how much better her life has become since seeking help. “At this point in my life, I don’t want to drink, nor do I have interest in drinking,” Luann reveals. “Rehab saved my life. It was the best thing that I could do for myself and I’m so glad I did that.”

Reality Star Easter & Passover Photos- Leah Messer, Yandy Smith, Fredrik Eklund, , & More

A lot of your favorite reality TV shows shared photos from their Easter and Passover celebrations with their families.

Real Housewives alums Heather Dubrow and Siggy Flicker had double the fun and celebrated both Easter and Passover- and documented both holidays, with photos, of course.

Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels enjoyed an egg hunt with her children and neighbors. Farrah Abraham’s daughter Sophia Abraham, Cary Deuber’s daughter Zuri, Ali Fedotowsky’s daughter Molly, and other reality TV offspring celebrated Easter by hunting for eggs.

A lot of your favorite reality stars were all about the family time this past week on Instagram. Teen Mom star Leah Messer rooting for her daughters at cheer. Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis celebrated her daughter Kensie’s 4th birthday. New York Housewife Ramona Singer hung out with her daughter Avery Singer. Luann de Lesseps saw Kinky Boots on Broadway with her kids. Tiny Harris celebrated her daughter Heiress’ birthday.

In other reality TV news, the Vanderpump Rules cast gathered to celebrate Lala Kent’s man Randall Emmett’s birthday. Wow. Things really can change in a year.

Report: Ramona Singer Threw Tantrum After She Couldn’t Get Into Aspen Bars & Restaurants

The Real Housewives of New York viewers have seen Ramona Singer flip out when her hair got wet, when guys showed up for a girls night out, and when she didn’t get the best room on a trip – well, on many cast trips.

So is it really surprising that there are “rumors” that Ramona had a tantrum because she couldn’t get into a bar or restaurant in Aspen. In all honesty, it’s expected at this point. Ramona isn’t exactly a pinnacle of good manners and patience. This gossip is totally believable.

Instagram Roundup: Scheana Marie, Margaret Josephs, Shannon Beador, Sonja Morgan, & More!

It feels like Christmas Eve for reality TV fans. There are so many new seasons on the way and that means that your favorite reality TV stars are sharing behind-the-scenes photos.

Orange County Housewife Tamra Judge was a good sport holding up an orange for the Real Housewives of Orange County opening credits…while she leaned on a scooter with her broken foot. New York Housewife Sonja Morgan shared a photo from one of her on-camera interview looks. Sonja’s costar Tinsley Mortimer ditched the glam squad (for a moment, at least) and  put on her own lip gloss.

Other reality stars shared photos hanging out with their kids like Teen Mom stars Javi Marroquin, Kail Lowry, and Leah Messer. Kristin Cavallari enjoyed spring break with her children. Rachel Zoe shared a sweet selfie with her two sons.

One of the more random photos from this week was of Real Housewives of Orange County alum Lydia Mclaughlin and Zac Efron- which was for her magazine, of course.

Check out all of those photos and more in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup in the gallery below.

Luann de Lesseps Is Giving Away VIP Tickets To Her Cabaret Show To Fans Who Can Rap Her Song “Money Can’t Buy You Class”

I have no shame. I tried to get ticket’s to Luann de Lesseps‘ #CountessAndFriendsCabaret show – twice. Instead, I had to get the most extreme FOMO watching her sing and dance while Sonja Morgan’s dress fell off in Instagram video after Instagram video.

I was there right on the dot at 12PM ready to get tickets to the new wave of shows in May and it turns out that they were sold out before I even had a chance to get them thanks to the presale purchases. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who was (extremely) disappointed when those tickets were sold out before having a chance to buy them, but there is hope for all of Luann’s fans to catch her shows in May.
