Tipsy Girl wines may be doing well and celebrating some success, but the same can’t be said for Tipsy Girl’s NYC restaurant/bar. It seems that the restaurant was having some trouble getting off the ground and now it’s pretty much at a stand still, if these pictures are any indication.
On Friday night our reader Jackie Danicki was strolling by the location and noticed it was closed up, lights off – and upon closer inspection, Tipsy Girl was served with an eviction notice! Sonja Morgan explains to Reality Tea that it’s all due to a whole lot of red tape!
“I think because I’m now so well-known for being ‘me’ that it’s just an odd thing,” Heather explained. “And the kinds of things they call me about are to either be myself – which I don’t wanna do – or kind of a ‘stereotypical of my character as it’s perceived on the show’ role.”
Andy dug up an Instagram pic from last year of Vicki out with Luann de Lesseps and the infamous Rey. “Luann and I got in a fight that because she thought that I wanted him! I’m like ‘I don’t want him, he’s yours!’ and she got mad at me! I don’t know who he is, but she was like ‘keep your hands off of him.’ He was all over me and she was like ‘we’re going right now’!” Vicki asks Andy again who this guy is and Andy says it’s way too long of a story.
In all honesty, that Tipsy Girl vs. Skinnygirl fight was painful to witness during the last Real Housewives of New York season. It was just a way bigger deal than I ever expected it to be and I still find it a little weird that Bethenny Frankel somehow felt threatened by Sonja Morgan’s business attempt. There is room for all of the Real Housewives to market their own liquor brands, so I don’t get how Bethenny could be upset with Sonja for trying to do the same. Sonja is trying to open a Tipsy Girl restaurant, which obviously did not work out, and now Bethenny is getting blamed?
That makes no sense to me. Yes, Bethenny is a super successful liquor mogul, but there is no way that she has that much power. Come on. As much as I love and root for Sonja, we all know that restaurant was never ever going to come to fruition. It just seems like Bethenny is a scapegoat to me.
After a season of friendship betrayal, cheating scandals, slut-shaming, name calling, meanness, vitriol, and eating disorders, Sonja doesn’t hesitate to call it “dark” and admit it wasn’t her “favorite season” to film.
However, Sonja believes a little ‘Sonja humor’ could have gone a long way to lightened things up. Sonja still blames DorindaMedley icing her out of the Berkshires trip for sending everything in such a negative direction.”I felt they could have used a little comedic lift,” she laments.
See which of your favorite reality TV stars stepped out this weekend to attend events and grab lunch with co-stars. In the photo above, Real Housewives of New Yorkstar Sonja Morgan hit the red carpet with David Svanda (a blast from the past! Sonja had been seen around town with him back in 2014).
Also spotted: Kyle Richards running errands and having lunch (with Eden Sassoon?) in Beverly Hills. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel was over in Pennsylvania for the 2016 Evening of Giving Event.
