Once again, Luann D’Agostino made TV history by drunkenly falling into a bush during the Real Housewives of New York cast’s Mexican vacation. Although I loved that scene more than anything and even rewound it a couple of times, it wasn’t enough to make me forget about those reports that her marriage with Tom D’Agostino is “hanging by a thread” and that she slapped him in a restaurant.
Oh. My. God. Mexico had no idea what was coming! Because when The Real Housewives Of New York decide to invade your country in the name of booze research, you need to erect a wall around them. Last night, Bethenny Frankel’s tequila-inspired adventure sailed right into crazyville, where Ramona Singer (whose face suddenly resembles a grated radish) took room-grabbing to new levels, Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] tumbled drunkenly into bushes and concrete patios, and Tinsley Mortimer accused her benefactress of being a traitor.
We begin with the group arriving in Mexico, where Bethenny already has the sh*ts – or the flu – or spontaneous diarrhea in response to staring at what little skin remains on Ramona’s face (courtesy of a chemical peel). Carole Radziwill is looking forward to Taco Bell and to congratulating herself on her matchmaking skills with Tinsley and Scott. They are an official item! The ladies play “marry, f–k, kill” in the car on the way to their rental, then take a gander at a stray d*ck pic Sonja Morgan received on her phone from a wrong number. If anything, this is an omen of things to come.
Well it’s been a roller coaster season of Real Housewives Of New York – a Ramonacoaster season to be exact! Last week the ladies filmed the season 9 reunion which was sure to be as insane as it was vitriolic because in the Big Apple they do everything bigger and um, well, bigger!
Sonja Morgan dished that after a season of emotional outbursts and shifting loyalties (aka no loyalties) Ramona Singer is in the hottest seat of all. We all know how Ramona likes to keep things hot
There is no doubt about it: Sonja Morgan always elevates the situation when she is a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Andy Cohen barely has to do any work as the host because Sonja delivers comedic gold without even trying.
As The Real Housewives Of New York get ready for their Mexico trip, sponsored by
Skinnygirl (TM) Bethenny Frankel, Tinsley Mortimer decides to mimic her favorite gradeschool character by moving into a room on the tippy top floor! (Eloise shout out) of her favorite hotel. Because she’s a grownup now and thinks this will prove it. Plus, moving furniture is just too overwhelming – as is walking, thinking, breathing, and blinking for dear Tins. In fact, she’s getting the vapors just thinking about it all. She just wants to kiss random men in public (like the one Carole Radziwill sets her up with) and get her blowouts on the UES, where room service and clean towels rain down from heaven!!!
Good thing Sonja Morgan’s new eyebrows have been painted solidly to her face, so she’s able to make the wide assortment of facial expressions necessary when Tinsley announces her big-girl plans at dinner. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer’s also got a few facial
contortions expressions in store for Bethenny, who sits down with her frenemy to discuss her trip invite – or lack thereof.
For the most part, the Real Housewives of New York cast is full of dynamic characters. No matter what you think about Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley, you have to admit that they really bring it as cast members. Excluding some people from that list is my subtle way of saying who the boring ones are. Why are they on the cast when there are so many viable candidates in New York City?
Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
Ever since Dorinda Medley’s “CLIP!” moment, The Real Housewives Of New York housewife has been keeping it mum on the blogs. But she’s back this week to rehash her Bronx beatdown of Sonja Morgan and to translate what exactly she was trying to drunkenly say at the ladies’ Vermont dinner. In a nutshell: Dorinda thinks Sonja is certifiably cuckoo and that Luann D’Agostino is sometimes a blow hard, albeit a harmless one that should just be given a break, already.
First, Dorinda comments on the new “Bloop!” in town – aka, Clip. She jokes, “Clip Clip Clip! I have no idea where that comes from, I just couldn’t figure out a away to stop Sonja from saying more lies! I had no idea it would replace STFU and be used worldwide! Thank you everyone for your messages showing me your ‘Clip Clip Clip’ moments.”
Say what you will about The Real Housewives Of New York, but these women (well, most of them) know how to bounce back from an argument within the time it takes to go from a main course to dessert. And Luann D’Agostino was a prime example of this whiplash-like behavior in Vermont, where the drama reached a crescendo at dinner and the sex talk reached new levels of raunch.
