The ladies of Real Housewives Of New York are still in Turks and Caicos, but they’re starting to panic, one mosquito caught in a macrame dress after another. Of course Ramona Singer is annoying everyone, and if there were Ramona-Off, it would be in constant use.
Bethenny Frankel is making lunch, because I’m sure there’s some Skinnygirl salad from her book, or she was trying to pimp her new Skinnygirl salad dressing or salad tongs or salad croutons made of compressed air and over-active imagination of what carbs actually taste like. But drama with Ramona eclipsed her Skinnygirl Self-Promotion Brigade.
Ramona is demanding everyone eat lunch at a restaurant. Bethenny is pissed, because she’s been cooking and that’s hella rude on Ramona’s part! Bethenny chases Ramona around the beach house yelling that she’s manic. That, my friends, is the true definition of Irony By Bravo – Skinnygirl Margarita glass calling the Pinot Glass empty.
Dorinda Medley has broken her silence about the argument with Heather Thomson that seemed to come out of nowhere on last week’s Real Housewives of New York, an argument Heather deemed “lame.” Dorinda, for her part, agrees about the relative ridiculousness of the tiff, but she does spend quite a while in this week’s blog defending how “hurt” she was by Heather’s “dismissive” attitude when walking in front of her to a local Turks and Caicos eatery.
Before getting into the Heather debacle, Dorinda reflects on her part in instigating the Sonja Morganvolcanic eruption that left no housewife untouched! Asserting that she cares about Sonja’s welfare because “there IS a difference between being a friend and being someone who cares for someone else, let’s be clear…,” Dorinda says she merely “wanted to offer some advice and help boost her confidence a bit” when she spoke to Sonja the morning after her “STFU!” moment with Bethenny Frankel. But Dorinda does admit, “I had no idea she was going to come charging down the mountainside at the rest of the girls the way she did. It’s like I lit a spark that sent the cannonball on a warpath. That wasn’t my intention.”
Filming of the Real Housewives of New York reunion special is getting underway and Page Six is already reporting that Sonja Morgan is planning to come in with guns blazing for her castmates who’ve dogged her all season about her drinking, erratic behavior, and clothing line (or lack thereof), and especially for their “rude” behavior during a Turks and Caicos trip that she asserts she treated them to.
Still raw months after the trip, Sonja claims “there was not one thank-you for taking the cast to the islands,” and she plans to “strike back” at the ladies during reunion taping for their crass and callous behavior toward her. The Turks and Caicos trip, which spans the final four episodes of RHONY this season, showed an increasingly ticked-off Sonja exploding at her castmates last week for insinuating she had a drinking problem. “She feels there’s just been criticism of her life and her lifestyle,” says the source.
John’s famed dry-cleaning service Madame Paulette, known for its restoration of couture, vintage, and extremely high-end garments, is a regular on the fashion scene and well-respected for their expertise. In order to further serve needs of their extremely demanding client base, Madame Paulette launched the Hamptons “Fashion Ambulance” – or a mobile fashion clinic ready to dispatch at a moment’s notice. The new service kicked off with a lavish party in the Hamptons.
In her blog this week, Kristen discusses why Ramona is “the root of all problems” with her “two faced” behavior, how she feels Dorinda Medley’sargument with Heather Thomson was ridiculous, and the bonding she did with the house chef. Because he was the only sane person on the trip. “The chef was the sweet guy that had a newborn baby. We spoke a lot about his first child and how wonderful the experience had been for him. He taught me some tricks in the kitchen like how to poach an egg. We talked about how he got into cooking, as well as life on the island of Turks and Caicos.” This explains where Kristen was during most of the Sonjameltdown: “If you were wondering where I was in most of this episode, maybe I was in the kitchen talking with the chef or taking a nap while the other girls ran to sign up for massages. I was really treating this trip as what it was for me: a vacation.
Heather Thomson was faring pretty well during the first leg of the Real Housewives of New York Turks and Caicos trip, given the fact that she and Bethenny Frankel have finally found some common ground after much angst over meatballs and getting up in one another’s “jocks.” But this week things took a turn when Dorinda Medley started in on Heather over walking too far ahead of her to dinner one evening. In her blog, Heather discusses what she calls the “#LamestFightInRHWHistory!” and more, including her vow to stay out of Sonja Morgan’s business.
Heather begins by revisiting Sonja’s blowup about all of the women “ganging up on her,” a situation Heather claims did not occur. What did occur is Ramona Singer stirring the pot, then licking the spoon. “I’m not a professional, and I don’t judge other people’s situations,” says Heather, “so all I can do is bear witness to Sonja’s unpredictable behavior. And I will no longer comment on it. But if anyone was the first to comment about Sonja, it has been Ramona.”
Yay! It’s that time of the week again when Real Housewives of New York’sDorinda Medley takes us on on the crazy, sense-makin’, straight talkin’ ride that is her blog. This week she reflects on why she’s proud of Sonja Morgan for standing her ground against Bethenny Frankel, why she loves Ramona Singer “like a sister” despite ‘Mona’s ridiculousness, and why wearing a once piece, well-made swimsuit is always the right choice in poolside lounge wear! #burntheyellowbikini
“Hello boys and girls! Welcome to storytime with Aunt Dori. Before we get started with this week’s adventure, a disclaimer: Everyone is crazy. Thanks,” begins Dorinda. Starting with her commentary on the Parkside dinner, Dorinda says more shade was served than rolls that night. “It was a handful of bitchery, and I feel like I overstepped and should have just kept my damn mouth shut about Sonja—or better yet, just defended her more. Who am I to pipe in, really? I have gone through so much grief (sometimes literally) in my life, and the one thing I needed most was a good support system.”
“Turks and Caicos is already off to a crazy start with Ramona and Sonja manically choosing rooms,” begins Heather. “The house was beautiful and featured seven bedrooms…No need for room-gate! We eventually figured it out.” While the tipsy twins were commandeering rooms that suited their fancy, Heather was apparently having a “normal” conversation with Bethenny – something, she points out, the Bravo cameras didn’t really capture. (Where was Carole Radziwill’s Blair Witch Project handheld cam!?) “It’s always so interesting to see what’s covered on the show, because while you might get to see one thing going on, something else you might not see is always happening at the same time. I was much more interested in my conversation with Bethenny. We’re finally talking normally–hooray!”
