The exact problem of the ratings decline has yet to be identified, but my guess is it has something to do with unrealistic storylines — bookgate — and planned confrontations — leg throwing. Huh, I just realized that both of those have to do with Aviva. Hmmmmmmm….more on that in a bit.
Since we don’t have a new episode of The Real Housewives of New York tonight, we have the next best thing – a photo gallery featuring plenty of the show’s former and current stars!
In our new photo gallery this week we have Bethenny Frankel out attending the Hamptons Paddle & Party For Pink event with her daughter Bryn Hoppy as well as her current boyfriend, Michael Cerussi. Aviva Drescherhit up Tommy Bahamas with Reid and the kids.
Oh, Sonja Morgan, how badly she wants to be the voice of reason as this season of Real Housewives of New York comes to a close. It’s been entertaining to say the least! I’ll give it to Sonja…when she’s sober, she at least tries to keep the peace. She’s fiercely loyal to Ramona Singer, and sometimes–sometimes–she even makes sense when discussing the drama among her co-stars!
Poo-pooing the idea that ghost writing allegations should cause such a hullabaloo, Sonja begins, “At this point, I am numb to the whole BookGate debate. I am not on anyone’s side, I just hope that both books are bestsellers and that Carole [Radziwill] and Aviva [Drescher] are making enough money to pay the bills with their books because BookGate has definitely taken an emotional toll on their friendship. I know that they were close and had great times together. In fact, Carole was once the godmother to Aviva’s daughter. How can this come between them? Such contention over the accusations! I don’t know why they let it get so heated. It’s not worth it! I just hope that they can forgive each other at some point. As you get to know someone, you get to see their strengths and weaknesses — and you have to accept those if you’re going to be friends.”
She reveals, “I was surprised when the girls laughed at me discussing my ability to forgive and voicing my Christianity. I think that it is one of the reasons that I can live my own life and not worry about everyone else’s or the grass being greener. It’s all relative. We are on Earth for such a short time. I am enjoying every day of my life. I am grateful for the family and friends that I have and my beautiful daughter.”
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.”
