Well that was some kinda bah-humbug holiday spirit on Real Housewives Of New York, but at least we finally met Luann de Lesseps‘ new man. Despite the free love, sexual adventuress vibe Luann has been rocking as of late, she and Tom D’Agostino Jr. seem genuinely happy in a way that radiated through the TV. I’m into it. Has love finally tamed The Countess?
I so wish the same would happen for Bethenny Frankel, because for all her loud (TOO LOUD) protestations that she “gives no f–ks” we see right through her. She is giving so many f–ks, (none of to men) that her emotional bankruptcy is exploding in a visceral and frankly unhinged way, giving her Bitch Tourrettes. I hope Luann gets a trademark on her hair then sues Bethenny for copyright violation. Just for fun!
Slay, slay, slay, Kyle Richards!! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stepped out last night (with daughter Portia) for the premiere of “Alice Through the Looking Glass” and had a major red carpet win in this black jumpsuit!
In light of all the confusion about what’s legal, and how exactly Sonja’s brand could possibly be a threat to Skinnygirl, the Real Housewives Of New York star explained about trademarks on Twitter, and Bethenny announced plans to produce her own business show!
I’m still in total shock that Luann de Lesseps is so fun these days on Real Housewives of New York. When she first joined the show she was all about being a countess and lecturing people on etiquette. Sure, she had her place as the foil for the more outrageous characters, but I love her so much more now that she’s a cougar on the prowl for fresh meat.
I also never expected Luann to become so close with Sonja Morgan. Like I said before, Luann just used to be so uptight and Sonja has always been outrageous and open about her partying. But, whatever, stranger alliances have happened on RHONY. And I’m all about this friendship between Sonja and Luann. They just do whatever they want and whoever they want with no apologies. These two have been pretty loyal to each other, but Luann is calling Sonja out.
I’m not trying to be shady, but I am pretty surprised by how good this season of Real Housewives of New York is so far. There is so much drama in every episode. It is making up for the boring seasons of the past – i.e. when there as a multi-episode arc for a beyond lame trip to Montana. And Dorinda Medley is really coming into her own as a Housewife. I love when she goes off and throws in all these gangsta hand motions. She isn’t someone that I would ever want to mess with – ever.
And this last episode of RHONY was a wild one for Dorinda who is stuck in the middle of a super annoying feud with her boyfriend John Mahdessian and her longtime friend Ramona Singer. The two of them cannot stand each other and Dorinda is put in such an awkward position because of them. And on top of that it is all very public. To make things even worse, Dorinda has to relive this nonsense again when the episodes air. Now, Dorinda is sounding off about that epic showdown between Ramona and John.
Two things I never thought I’d say: First, I am totally digging the insanity occurring on this season’s Real Housewives of New York. Second, Jules Wainstein is growing on me, and dare I say, she makes a lot of sense?!? Crazy, I know. The ladies of Manhattan have always been entertaining to me in a boring sort of way, but the drama Dorinda Medley and her oily beau John are facing with friends Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer is making it some must-watch television.
To me, Jules is like a younger, skinnier (who knew that was possible?) Carole Radziwill. While she may be a bit flighty and clearly lacks a tad bit of self-awareness, Jules is trying to stay above the fray while voicing her opinions. After this week’s episode, Jules is dishing on that terribly awkward dry cleaning soiree, the painfully uncomfortable nanny interview, and Sonja Morgan’s tipsy attempts to pay the bills which caused Bethenny to unleash a ruthless smack down.
Sonja starts off defending that her birthday party was not a product launch. “I did not have press at my birthday party. It wasn’t a business event. It wasn’t a charity or a typical Sonja In the City event with wall-to-wall professional cameras. I sent out no press invites. It was not a launch. It was just personal friends coming together to celebrate with Marco Maranghello and me. Thanks Ramona for not letting Bethenny know that.”
