As the tail-end of the reunion, the drama was lackluster as all the mini-feuds were unscabbed and reargued part deux. At the center of most of the messes is Aviva Drescher. Among her many issues, she insists she was paying Carole Radziwill a compliment when she said, “At least I’m not 50 years old…” during their bookgate argument. Apparently in the convoluted twisted land of Avicious’ mind saying that someone is 50 and alone is a compliment, because she actually thought they were older. Ramona Singer, tact police, tut-tuts that even in a pinot-laced haze she knows that’s no compliment. That’s Aviva’s MO, to make a nasty comment and then claim the other person misconstrued it and she was actually trying to say xyz…
Avicious‘ other MO is to drop classicist epithets. Last night’s recipient was Heather Thomson. Aviva is appalled by Heather’s use of the phrase “mother f–ka” because Aviva says it sounds “gangster” and Heather did not grow up in the ghetto – nor has she been to prison. Apparently those are the only places people learn such language. Which confuses me because didn’t Aviva tell Kristen Taekman to “shut the F–k up“? Was Aviva in prison unbeknownst to us? She should be! Or perhaps Vassar was teaching a Ghetto Language Course? Needless to say Heather is offended by Aviva’s ignorance.
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 daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
Clearly the powers that be at Andy Cohen Headquarters decided to put all the super crazies together to form some sort of cosmic force of intense delusion. The loose grasp of reality that was tenuously tying Ramona, Sonja, Aviva (Ramonjava?) to the world evaporated right there on stage. Of course “IT’S ALLEGATIONS!” that they’re insane. “ALLEGATIONS!”
We open with Sonja Morgan discussing why she needs 9,000 interns. I want to know how many have lodged complaints with OSHA but Andy never asks the hard questions. She claims colleges give credits to these kids spending a semester learning Mac Calendar – scheduling Mrs. Morgan’s busy life of partying on her yacht with P. Diddy is “the hardest thing.” It takes a lot of creativity to completely fabricate Mrs. Morgan’s importance!
Ramona Singer is never one to accept blame, but she is one to boast (erroneously) about her own so-called accomplishments.
It’s no secret that ratings for this season of Real Housewives of New York have been lower than anticipated despite some decent story lines and fresh faces. However, the show has failed to ever recapture it’s heyday from after the mass firing. Ramona, as one of the few remaining veterans of the show, certainly doesn’t fault herself for the ratings floundering.
She insists her co-stars are to blame. “It’s the chemistry of the people,” Ramona complained. “I believe the chemistry hasn’t been quite right. I believe Sonja [Morgan] and I were not afraid to step out and be ourselves. And some people (on the show) are just too cautious.”
“Ramona [Singer] is just a plain liar! Unfortunately for her, we have previous episodes to show the “REALITY.” If I’m a DRAG QUEEN (admirable occupation), she’s Cameron Diaz. . .LOL. Don’t worry we catch her in a lot more crap as the reunion progresses,” LuAnn begins.
“You have to love Ramona and how she deflects things and makes it about her hair when she just flung a wine glass at someone’s face. She tried to defend herself by saying it was plastic, but REALLY? Who throws a glass at your face, whether it’s plastic or not? Who DOES THIS? Ramona. . .with her you never know what your going to get.”
I finally figured what Sonja Morgan and Aviva Drescher like about each other – they’re both totally and utterly delusional! And they reinforce each other’s delusions. Seriously – was there a psychiatrist waiting in the wings of the Real Housewives of New York reunion?
Kristen Taekman got new boobs. As an anniversary present. Is this like a thing now – getting new boobs for the reunion? Ladies – the suddenly ballooning mummeries does not distract us from the drama.
Of course, almost immediately Kristen and Aviva are at each other’s throats over all of their arguments this season; specifically the time Aviva told Kristen to “Shut the f–k up” in front of their kids. Aviva does not apologize. At all. In fact she denounces Kristen as a “rookie” (I see someone has been rehearsing their insults in the mirror again!) and dismisses the whole things perfectly fine and normal. I mean kids hear the f-word. No biggie. I mean it’s just a word.
After having her career questioned along with her integrity – and having to put up with a season of Sonja Morgan‘s delusions, Carole has had enough and is calling BS on this season’s shenanigans!
First she outs Sonja as a liar who tried to make LuAnn de Lesseps look bad for her own benefit! Carole reveals that Sonja’s revisionist history about her sprained leg and chasing Harry down the street to claim her one true love! “Sonja may have run through the streets of New York chasing Harry (which, she didn’t) but then she fell and sprained her ankle, drunk in the same club with Harry and LuAnn and Heather [Thomson] and Jonathan,” Carole states.
I’m sure Aviva Drescher is trying to take credit for it, but it was less about a leg being thrown across Le Cirque (seriously was this not the scene from a David Foster Wallace novel, or what?!) and more about the reactions of the other ladies – specifically LuAnn de Lesseps who literally burst into uncontrollable laughter and couldn’t stop.
Before all of that we have to dismantle the curious case of who got hairy with Harry. Sonja Morgan is reclining in bed, surrounded by interns of a frightened nature, one leg is propped on her pillow – tonight’s episode is clearly full of leg drama. Ramona Singer comes over to see her “Sonja-Bonja” which really is the most apt nickname ever. Sonja Bonja. Say ‘Bonja’ out loud and then laugh cause we all know Sonja likes to bone ya! I digress…
Ramona has Kristen Taekman with her because now that Aviva has outed herself as full-scale allergic to sanity, they need a tagalong to pour their wine. Pinot and Commando are adopting, y’all! Hide your impressionable youngish 30-something quarter-life crisis friends.
