Can you believe we are already at the season finale of The Real Housewives of New York City? Newcomer Tinsley Mortimer has had an interesting first season and is reflecting on last week’s shenanigans in her latest blog. This isn’t the first time Tinsley admits to being embarrassed by her behavior on the show. And if she returns next season, it likely won’t be the last time she’ll be embarrassed by it.
Tinsley starts off by explaining that she has been very appreciative of Sonja Morgan‘s hospitality but didn’t expect her to talk shit about her to the other ladies. “Because I was moving out of Sonja’s townhouse to a hotel suite, I really wanted to host a great Thank You party for Sonja. Without question, she had been very generous to invite me to stay at her house during a very difficult period for me. I was so appreciative of this offer and still am, because she really changed my life. I did not, however, expect her to feel the liberty to speak poorly of me to others.”
Despite their misgivings about Tom – and in some cases, their personal dating histories with him – Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley reached out on social media and news outlets to offer empathy and support. Their statements, much like their TV personalities, varied widely.
Much like the best house party you ever attended freshmen year, last night’s Real Housewives Of New York came replete with drunken makeout sessions, naked crying in the pool, and knifings. Yes – it was epic. And I may be fangirling out so hard that I have blinders on, but I’ll say it again: This Mexico trip is serving up some of the best Housewives moments in recent memory. It’s a rare gift, and we totally deserve it after suffering through the Tom and Luann D’Agostino [de Lesseps] wedding snooze fest for eight straight episodes!
We pick up with Sonja Morgan “therapizing” Ramona Singer by the pool. She wants Ramona to admit she’s not happy. Why? Because she’s not getting banged by Mario every nightbut some other chick is. Fresh off her 10 minute month sobriety, Sonja is feeling loose on tequila and truth. Bethenny Frankel thinks Sonja needs to back the eff off though, shockingly defending Ramona against Sonja’s drunken tirade. Ramona screams that she’s happy, but admits she misses having a man.
Luann wasn’t any worse for the wear when she woke up the morning after her falls. She jokes, “It takes more than a little hangover to stop me from working out on a beautiful Mexican morning! In fact, yoga with Dorinda [Medley] was just what the doctor ordered after falling into a bush… and emerging without a scratch! When Bethenny offered a surfing lesson to us, I figured, why not? I’m always up for anything, and I felt so much better after being in the ocean. They say Vitamin Sea is the best medicine, and I agree. Sometimes you just have to surf it off.”
The morning after Sonja Morgan and Ramona tore through rooms like Hurricane Crazy, the group awakens to a new day. Dorinda and Luann are practicing yoga on the patio while Carole Radziwill is inside demanding bean-free huevos rancheros. Luann is relieved to be alive, and without a scratch to boot! Tinsley Mortimer is giddy over the enormous bouquet of flowers delivered to her from new boyfriend, Scott. She’ll have to stick a pin in that joy for now, though, because there are fights to be had! Namely, between Ramona and Bethenny.
That last episode of Real Housewives of New York was not a good look for Ramona Singer– and I’m not even making a dig about Ramona’s face after she got a chemical peel or whatever cosmetic procedure she elected to have before going on the cast trip to Mexico. I’m referring to her bratty behavior about the room selection and her typical behavior when it comes to ordering around the hotel staff.
It just was unflattering all around. Surprisingly enough, Ramona is actually owning up to her behavior- well, sort of.
