“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.
Sonja wasn’t happy to watch the episode and hear what everyone was saying behind her back. At least she had some cute scenes with Bethenny Frankel. It’s surprising after their Tipsy Girl feud last year, but grudges are short-lived on this show. The best alliances friendships are constantly switching up.
Unlike a lot of reality TV stars who put a lot of effort into being interesting, Dorinda Medley is just naturally entertaining, at least in my opinion. She’s a little rough around the edges and always tells it like it is and I love it. Not only that, but she is a lady who never has any qualms sharing her opinions and I live for it.
The RHONY trio also offered a glimpse into what it’s like to brawl in front of the cameras (Sonja confesses she can’t stand reunions – they make her sweaty!) and how their friendships continue to forge ahead, despite the drama. Ramona admits that she’d never want Jill Zarin back on RHONY, despite what she calls Jill’s “desperate” attempt to return. And as an added cherry on top, Ramona and Sonja coughed up some inside info on what went down behind the scenes on Scary Island with Kelly Bensimon back in the day!
