Luann De Lesseps‘ so called “friends” have had a lot to say about her fiance, Tom D’Agostino on The Real Housewives of New York lately. Tom, who Luann plans to wed on New Year’s Eve in Palm Beach, hasn’t had much of a chance to defend himself though. Now he’s speaking out to clarify the rumors that he 1) dated Ramona Singer seriously and 2) hooked up with Sonja Morgan over a period of 10 years. The answer to both rumors, according to Tom? Nope, and nope.
“I don’t watch the show, but I get different pieces here and there, and a lot of the stuff I have heard? It’s so outlandish to me,” says Tom. Not sure I’m buying his line of not watching the show, but Sonja and Ramona spewing forth outlandish commentary? Absolutely! Then again, Tom could just be covering up his sordid past with the ladies. No one wants to be dubbed another Slade Smiley!
Carole Radziwillhas become a divisive presence on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. An early fan favorite, her star has visibly dimmed since her debut, due in part to the “mean girl” behavior some viewers perceive her displaying with her bestie, Bethenny Frankel. In this week’s (extreeeeeeemely long!) blog, Carole breaks down her relationship with all of the women, claiming she’s fine with all of them. And that she’s really, truly, for-real-this-time over her beef with Luann de Lesseps.
Beginning with Ramona Singer, Carole comments, “Ramona is a good friend. She’s good at being a friend, she’s a good friend to people who are her friends. She’s the kind of friend you want in your reality foxhole when martini glasses start flying. She might not have the best listening skills but her heart is in the right place even if that place is sometimes Oz with monkeys flying around and she’s the Tin Man, with a healthy dose of scarecrow.”
The Apologist may be making the rounds yet again, this time in her business life. Ramona Singer’s partnership to market hair extensions with Victoria Flores of Lux Beauty Club may be null and void after a brief business relationship. Why? Because of Ramona’s “diva behavior,” of course!
Ramona reportedly wanted her new hair extensions venture to feature prominently into this season’s Real Housewives of New York, but is the business dead before it even started? In an email to Ramona last week, a fed-up Flores apparently scolded the reality star about her entitled attitude. “You are not Angelina Jolie!” she barked. (Ahahahahaha! I have got to stop laughing in order to keep typing. This is just so, so – spot on!)
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.

I figured that watching yourself on reality TV would make you a very reflective person and give you inspiration to make self improvements or at the very least make yourself look better after saying embarrassing shit. Apparently this is not really the case when it comes to Luann de Lesseps.
For some reason Luann expressed that she thought that the other women on Real Housewives of New York were jealous of her engagement to Tom D’Agostino during the last episode. If anything, the women were just shocked that she got engaged so quickly to someone who was “dating” both Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan pretty recently. Time has passed and the episode has aired and Luann has not clarified her statements. Instead, she maintains that the other women are super envious of her love life…
They were all just completely shocked by Lu channeling some Drake lyrics and going from “zero to one hundred real quick” with the super sudden engagement. No one knew how to react to her bragging about how she has a new apartment with a terrace now since it is so hard to get past things moving so quickly – not because anyone is jealous. And in a not-so-shocking turn of events Bethenny Frankel gave her two cents on the weird love triangle with Luann’s fiancee Tom D’Agostino, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the woes of thy vagina continued. Also Luann de Lesseps wonders why these bitches won’t be happy that she’s madly in love! It seems Luann answered her own question there, and the operative word is “bitches” – those bitches can’t be happy for her, because they’re bitches. OK, OK… that’s not entirely true, and more on this later… I know you cannot wait for my rambling musings on the many contrary behaviors of Housewives.
But first, Bethenny Frankel has taken a break from randomly bleeding all over Manhattan to launch Skinnygirl Chocolate. She decides to “go bold” by wearing a bright red wig, which considering what’s going on south of Bethenny’s equator, I dunno… maybe a little too close for comfort? Or maybe Bethenny wanted the drapes to match the curtains?
Bethenny Frankel and Sonja Morgan still haven’t made up after their Tipsy Girl/Skinnygirl fallout on Real Housewives of New York. Bethenny wants to be clear that her issues with Sonja are not over the use of the word “girl.” She took to her SiriusXM radio show (B Real With Bethenny) last week to expand a little on her reasons for being annoyed and irritated with anyone (mostly Sonja and Jules) who fails to “own it.”
Bethenny started out explaining how difficult it is to launch a successful alcohol business, “I have so many categories and so many businesses, I wasn’t worried that it was competing with my brand. I know how difficult it is. Skinnygirl was the first low-calorie cocktail in history, so just coming up with a wine or like Ramona has her pinot grigio and she experiences the challenges. It’s really, really hard to just come in with one sku of something and make money when it’s just another wine or something. Especially when we’ve seen Sonja with so many different kind of fake businesses.”
