Sonja Morgan was a breath of fresh air in the fetid shark tank that was last night’s Real Housewives of New YorkReunion, Part 1. Always kooky, never truly nasty, Sonja seems to bring a certain lightness to the dark pall that’s been cast over this season of RHONY. But that doesn’t mean she’s feeling all sunshine and rainbows about the way things went down.
In her blog, Sonja specifically calls out Dorinda Medley for cutting her out of the Berkshires trip from hell, and for her hypocritical ways (as Sonja sees it). “After seeing the dry cleaner party that went off the rails bad from soup to nuts again during the reunion, I really have to ask once again: Dorinda was protecting me from what in the Berkshires? The same drama I have been dealing with since way before her? She was not protecting me. She was dividing me from my group.”
Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York reunion started with the women tiptoeing around each other, gently nudging at each other’s ankles like cats giving ‘love bites,’ to see how you’ll react to their brand of toxic care. In reality, the women were trying not to jump the gun by getting nasty first, save to see what the other girl possibly had up her skirt.
Someone could have an apple in their mouth, or they could have one hidden in their hand waiting to be thrown, and the whole entire time you could have misunderstood their meaning, their intent, or their entire mythological way of being. Is it evident that I have no idea what I am saying? I must be on the same (alleged) drugs as Dorinda Medley.
Although there have been a lot of tears, a lot of screaming, a lot of accusations, a lot of surprises, and no decent cast trip to speak of (Thanks Bethenny Frankel!), there have also been some fun moments. And a lot of OMG ones!
A slew of reality stars attended the MTV VMAs last night: Farrah Abraham (in an interesting red carpet look…), pregnantJenelle Evans, Snooki & Jwoww, and more. Did you tune in for the show last night? When I heard they were giving Kanye West several minutes to do and say whatever he wanted, I decided to pass on that ranty mess. I heard Beyonce was phenomenal.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
For the most part, Ramona Singer was pretty chill during this most recent season of Real Housewives of New York. She really was not a part of the show’s most dramatic story lines for once. Maybe she is finally living up to all that hype about the “new beginnings” she’s always bragging about.
I was thinking that she was going to slip back into her Ramonster ways with all of this craziness involving the Luann De Lesseps, Tom D’Agostino, and Sonja Morgan love square, but minus one argument with Luann, she’s been pretty relaxed this season. Nevertheless, some crazy shit went down and I’ve been wondering what she thinks of it all.
I still think Bethenny had to tell Luann, but I think the way Bethenny did it was calculating and nefarious. I still think Luann is an idiot for putting her heart and dignity on the line for an odious schmuck like Tom, who doesn’t even have the decency to do his bad deeds in secret like every other cheating spouse of a Real Housewife. Even Mario had more discretion – he at least chose some other-rate fitness emporium unfancy enough to meet the demands of Ramona Singer‘s hubris!
Sonja Morgan has had a difficult season of Real Housewives Of New York. She’s struggled with friendships failing, accusations about her drinking, business endeavors, and the blow-up of Luann and Tom in her face, but she won’t let it get her down – after all: while the other girls drown in their misery, Sonja will continue being the sexy J that stirs the drink!
Yet, Sonja admits she’s “disappointed with the girls. I think they need to get their own lives instead of looking at mine. They’re very self-serving.”
