In all honesty, that Tipsy Girl vs. Skinnygirl fight was painful to witness during the last Real Housewives of New York season. It was just a way bigger deal than I ever expected it to be and I still find it a little weird that Bethenny Frankel somehow felt threatened by Sonja Morgan’s business attempt. There is room for all of the Real Housewives to market their own liquor brands, so I don’t get how Bethenny could be upset with Sonja for trying to do the same. Sonja is trying to open a Tipsy Girl restaurant, which obviously did not work out, and now Bethenny is getting blamed?
That makes no sense to me. Yes, Bethenny is a super successful liquor mogul, but there is no way that she has that much power. Come on. As much as I love and root for Sonja, we all know that restaurant was never ever going to come to fruition. It just seems like Bethenny is a scapegoat to me.
After a season of friendship betrayal, cheating scandals, slut-shaming, name calling, meanness, vitriol, and eating disorders, Sonja doesn’t hesitate to call it “dark” and admit it wasn’t her “favorite season” to film.
However, Sonja believes a little ‘Sonja humor’ could have gone a long way to lightened things up. Sonja still blames DorindaMedley icing her out of the Berkshires trip for sending everything in such a negative direction.”I felt they could have used a little comedic lift,” she laments.
See which of your favorite reality TV stars stepped out this weekend to attend events and grab lunch with co-stars. In the photo above, Real Housewives of New Yorkstar Sonja Morgan hit the red carpet with David Svanda (a blast from the past! Sonja had been seen around town with him back in 2014).
Also spotted: Kyle Richards running errands and having lunch (with Eden Sassoon?) in Beverly Hills. Meanwhile, Bethenny Frankel was over in Pennsylvania for the 2016 Evening of Giving Event.
As much as I love her, I never know if Sonja Morgan’s projects are ever going to come to fruition. But now my favorite (aspiring) Real Housewives entrepreneur is going to be in actress in a play. I’m all about this and in all honesty I want to get tickets.
The Real Housewives of New York star will make her debut on the stage in an off-Broadway play called Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man. Solely based on the title, this just sounds like the perfect play for my girl Sonja. I have a feeling that this plays perfectly into her persona and that she’s going to kill it- and if she doesn’t kill it, she’s sure to entertain no matter how well she acts.
Well this show has certainly come full circle this season, hasn’t it? We started this Real Housewives of New York reunion with Bethenny Frankel using her Botox jaw to rip the surgically tucked skin off these women, and we ended things with a hapless Bethenny Frankel sniffling while everyone sang kumbaya. I am perplexed.
The bulk of the episode, like the bulk of the reunion, and pretty much the majority of the season, centered around the scintillating personal life of Luann de Lesseps. What happens in Luann’s bedroom is a national attraction at this point. People don’t go to NYC to visit the Statue of Liberty any longer, they to study the newest de Lesseps donation – the Penthouse bedroom of the ex Mrs. Countess.
I could not believe what I was watching. Even at home, my face turned beet red from the vicarious embarrassment so I can’t imagine how the people who were actually in the room felt. In a not-so-shocking turn of events, both Dorinda and Sonja made comments about that specific part of the reunion episode.
