It feels like Andy Cohen has a night off as the host whenever Sonja Morgan appears on Watch What Happens Live. He doesn’t have to push her to say much, yet Sonja delivers with amazing information that he wasn’t even asking for. She always comes through.
And last night’s episode was even crazier because Real Housewives enthusiast Michael Rapaport was also in the clubhouse. Sonja revealed a tryst with an A-list actor, accused Dorinda Medley of “always being drunk,”and clarified those racy photos of her on the floor with that stripper. If you missed the episode, you need to look for it online. It was just that good, but if you’re already reading this, then I got you covered with the show’s essential moments.
We open with the ladies settling in to their respective Hamptons homes – Carole Radziwill is bunking at Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl pad, Dorinda is staying at Luann De Lesseps’ house, Ramona is chillin’ at her abode because no one can abide her, and Sonja has somehow convinced unnamed “friends” to lend their house to Tinsley and her for the weekend (which they’ll arrive at the following day). Bethenny is hoping Carole can cool her jets on the election talk, while Luann is showing Dorinda how to literally cool her nether-regions on her super fancy crapper. “It’s the Cadillac of toilets!” squeals the soon to be ex-Countess.
Sonja Morgan has a lot to get off her chest regarding last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York. In her blog, she shares her thoughts on former bestie Ramona Singer, new BFF Tinsley Mortimer and so much more, including some yacht talk and a few reality checks for Luann D’Agostino.
Sonja is happy to have newcomer Tinsley around. “Tinsley is such a shot in the arm for me and is refreshing. I need that kind of energy around me now that I’m in an empty nest. I’ve lost a lot of positive and motivating energy in the house without my daughter living at home anymore.”
Unfortunately for Luann de Lesseps, Season 9 of Real Housewives of New York has continued with the Tom D’Agostino bashing from last season. And I’m sure the former countess is not done publicly defending her relationship. Thankfully new housewife Tinsley Mortimer arrived during the last episode and hopefully (for Luann’s sake) she will give the fandom something else to talk about.
Sure, it is going to take a lot for anything Tinsley says or does to supersede Tom as a hot topic of conversation, but a lot of viewers are curious to learn more about her. Even though Tinsley is new to the show she’s actually known Luann and Sonja Morgan for years, so it does make sense that she is a part of the cast now.
“So we finally get to meet the new girl—oh wait, I don’t. But before I get there, let me talk about a few other things,” snarks Dorinda in her blog. “Hannah has decided to move out. It took a long time for Hannah and I to heal after Richard’s death. She decided to move back in with me, and I decided to mother her as much as I could during the aftermath of his death. It was the best decision for both of us, but now after five years she has decided it’s time to move out and get her own apartment. I am happy to say it’s in NYC and not too far away.”
Even though Real Housewives of New York’sninth season technically started last week, I feel like nothing happened in that first episode. New girl Tinsley Mortimer didn’t even appear until the second episode, so I just felt like episode one was just a recap of where we left off since the reunion aired. Now it feels like the season is finally under way.
Even though we only got a little glimpse at Tinsley, I like her so far and I’m just waiting for that hair tutorial to go up on her Instagram story. I am a little thrown off by her living with Sonja Morgan, but I would probably do that too if Sonja invited me. At this point, that townhouse is nothing short of notorious. Tinsley opened up about her debut and her first impressions of the cast members.
Between seasons, it’s easy to forget what an outrageous mess Ramona Singer is. Then Real Housewives Of New York rolls tape again and voila! We remember. This week, Ramona was seen wandering around Sonja Morgan’s house in shades while being hardcore shaded by Sonja’s butler who needs a Bravo contract immediately. She also paid a visit to Bethenny Frankel with Carole Radziwill – where Ramona adamantly denies kicking Bethenny’s puppy!
“I love dogs! The puppies were on the side of my feet jumping with excitement. I did not kick them!” defends Ramona, who was surprised to learn of Bethenny’s newly adopted pets. She was also surprised to hear Bethenny and Carole snarking behind her back: “I know this isn’t a big deal, but what is a big deal are the snarky rude comments behind my back between Carole and Bethenny saying I am crazy! I mean, like really! Talk about who starts sh–.” Existential dilemma: If Ramona says she is not crazy, and other people who are a bit crazy themselves call her crazy – WHO IS ACTUALLY CRAZY?
We open at Sonja’s house, where she’s dyeing her eyebrows and ordering interns to ferry her chocolate. Tinsley pops by to move the hell on in – complete with pillows! Once the “It Girl” girl of NYC, Tinsley fell hard when she splashed across the tabloids in stories revealing ongoing domestic disputes with her boyfriend, one of which resulted in her arrest. Tinsley, now less of an It Girl than a Who? Girl, is trying to rebuild her life. Mission one: find a different sort of guy to date. You know, one who you don’t need to call the police on weekly. Sonja is down for the cause.
