Former Real Housewives of New York star Heather Thomson has been busy running her businesses and living life since leaving the show, but she took a little time recently to sit down and share her thoughts on her former co-stars and more.
This week, The Real Housewives of New York hit the road. It’s time for everyone to assemble at the dinner table and give one another a verbal dressing down. Because this is what they do best, no? The ladies are heading to the Hamptons for Bethenny Frankel’s birthday, Carole Radziwill’s post-marathon soiree – hosted by Hamptons maven herself, Ramona Singer – and for the annual WWE match between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. Dorinda has been mainlining martinis in preparation for the event. Sonja has been taking her kaftans out of cellophane for the event.
Carole is driving up with Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda. But the bigger point of contention is where she’s staying – at a hotel with Tinsley instead of at Bethenny’s Hamptons pad. Why? Well, we get two different answers. Carole says that Bethenny’s “got a full house” so she opted to stay elsewhere. But Bethenny claims she invited Carole, but thinks her ex-bestie doesn’t want to come over because Bethenny’s daughter will be there. “Carole needs a best friend really close to at all times,” says Bethenny, who presumes Tinsley is this new best friend. “They’re thick as thieves.”
She still has tension with her former roommate Sonja Morgan, she’s coming for Luann de Lesseps and her quickie marriage to Tom D’Agostino, and she has an on-again-off-again romance with Scott Kluth. She’s even straightened her hair for a scene or two- which is a big deal considering how attached she is to her signature curls.
And just like the last two seasons, the main topic of conversation is Tom D’Agostino. He doesn’t even appear this season (at least as far as I know), and he’s still giving so much to this show. Last year (and the year before) Luann was all “about Tom,” but now it’s the Tinsley and Carole who want to talk about her ex.
Aside from all that boring chatter about the marathon- which is a great achievement that I could never ever pull off- Carole Radziwillblessed the fandom with some amazing shade during the last Real Housewives of New York episode.
At this point in the season, it looks like it’s Carole and Tinsley Mortimer are on one side and Luann de Lessepsand Sonja Morgan on the other. Carole didn’t use up all of her best shade during the episode. She had a lot more to say about Sonja and Lu.
After a tough time navigating a long distance relationship and a breakup, Tinsley Mortimerand Scott Kluthare back together- according to reports.
During the first two episodes of Real Housewives of New York Season 10, Tinsley had been very vocal to get back together with Scott and her desire to eventually get married. In the trailer for the season, we saw Scott showing up to surprise Tinsley, and now it looks like they were able to work out their differences and rekindle the romance.
The Real Housewives of New York is back, and all is right in my reality TV world again. Ahh, the sweet sounds of Dorinda Medley speaking in tongues after tossing back one too many. Ramona Singer using plastic microphones to emphasize her incomprehensible points. Luann de Lesseps pounding her chest and proclaiming, “I have suffered!” in her most insufferable delusion. And Carole Radziwill learning to exercise. Well, okay – it’s not all riveting. But after a few franchise duds this year, I’ll take it! Although I wasn’t here for the premiere, I’m back in now with two feet firmly planted in the delicious mess of this particular group of women.
This week, we find out who’s working on running (Carole) and who’s just running her mouth (Sonja Morgan). After opening credits, we see Tinsley Mortimer, Ramona, and Carole meeting for lunch. Why? So Carole can tell them that Luann is culturally insensitive and that she’s nervous she is to run the NY marathon. Ramona says she’s planned a super-secret party for Carole to celebrate her accomplishments. Except maybe she hasn’t planned it until this very moment? Clearly, Ramona has had a bright idea, and she is fully committed to seeing it through. She can only manage one thought in her head at a time, after all.
It was teased in the trailer with Bethenny saying “Carole isn’t as excited to see me as she used to be.” And Carole pulls a Danielle Staub, telling Bethenny, “Don’t call me honey.” As of this moment, we don’t know the specifics behind their animosity, but the editors definitely laid the groundwork for a feud between the former besties in the Season 10 premiere episode.
