Things got a little rockier between Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer last week on The Real Housewives of New York City. Tinsley explains her side of the drama over answering the door and abusing assistant privileges.
She starts off by sharing what a lovely job Dorinda Medley did when readying her home for the holidays. “After hearing so much about it from Sonja, being invited to the Berkshires was like finding Willy Wonka’s golden ticket…OR getting invited to the North Pole. I’m seriously convinced Dorinda’s day job is being Mrs. Claus, and Blue Stone Manner is actually Santa’s work shop. Her house is gorgeous, particularly with the abundance of beautiful Christmas decorations everywhere.”
Before anyone can get their panties in a Berkshires twist, we begin in NY with Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund discussing the sale of her current apartment – and prepping us, yet again, for their imminent spinoff. When Fredrik suggests that Bethenny remove the clutter from her home, she sees Skinnygirl Red, barking that she DOES NOT DO CLUTTER! And really, what is he talking about with this imaginary clutter issue? Homegirl is about as spartan as they come with her style. They can agree on a price though – as long as Fredrik agrees with Bethenny.
The ladies of Real Housewives of New York were a tad obsessed with Luann de Lesseps‘ wedding plans when they filmed this season together, for good reason, obviously. Luann is trying to let it all roll right off her back and is thankful for friends like Sonja Morgan who are showing a little support of her decision to move forward with the wedding to Tom D’Agostino, despite Tom’s cheating.
She shared in her blog this week, “Who has time for negativity when I’m planning a fabulous wedding weekend? So many details! As you can see, I was working on the wedding when I met Sonja at Il Postino for lunch. Sonja is happy for us and although she’ll be out of town for our wedding, she wishes us all the best. At least someone is happy for us!”
I don’t understand why anyone would ever defy Dorinda Medley. Whoever has the nerve to do so – God bless you. I can’t think of anyone who can handle her wrath. That’s why it kills me watching my girl Sonja Morgan this season on Real Housewives of New York. She has no idea who she’s up against.
It seems like they are cool at this point, but I doubt Dorinda enjoys watching these episodes when Sonja is shit talking her charitable efforts and her boyfriend John Mahdessian. Sonja better watch out. Dorinda will not put up with that nonsense.
What were the reality celebs up to this week? Running errands, officiating at Pride Festivals and so much more! First up, Lisa Vanderpump had a busy weekend. On Saturday she attended the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles’ 6th Annual Voice Awards and then on Sunday, she was the Celebrity Grand Marshall (along with Ken) at the Long Beach Lesbian And Gay Pride Festival at Marina Green Park in Long Beach, California. Can you stand how cute that dog is?! Complete with an LVP bumpit!
New Bachelorette star Rachel Lindsay was doing some press for the show and wound up giving away a major spoiler about her season! Oops.
When this season of Real Housewives of New York started it seemed like the major feud was going to be between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. That seems to have blown over and, in all honesty, Sonja vs. Dorinda was far from an even match. There’s no way Sonja would have survived a whole season going up against Dorinda. Now it’s clear that the biggest tension of the season is between OG cast members Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel.
Ramona questioned Bethenny on her “soft porn” past and brought up Bethenny’s six-year-old daughter. She did so in a group setting on camera and just came across as a blatant instigator. Now, she’s backpedaling and trying to frame the conversation as her expressing concern, but Bethenny appears to be so done with Ramona.
Obviously Tinsley owes Sonja for being her link to this show and for letting her live in the infamous townhouse, but I am just so thrown off by their dynamic. Sonja doesn’t want Tinsley hanging out with “her” friends, but then she’s sending her off to events on her own instead of clinging to her. Sonja has always been my girl (in my head, anyway), so I hope she’s not playing some low key mean girl games with Tinsley.
