With less than a week to until the premiere of Below Deck Mediterranean, Bravo celebrated with a big bash last night in NYC. The cast members partied it up with some of our other favorite Bravolebrities.
Bethenny told us over and over again how cool her party was supposed to be – hot dogs! s’mores! Moscow Mules! Skinnygirl coffee cups! Yet, there for the grace of ungainliness go John, Dorinda Medley‘s boyfriend, a fetid protrusion who dropped a big old stink over the party, thus ruining it for The Big B. Her poor friend Carole Radziwill was equally besieged – the ghost of Countesses Past trailing her through the party seeking absolution? Resolution? Nah – actually a casually polite conversation.
It was a crisp, cool day and that something in the air was pervasive. I don’t think it was the smell of wienies roasting, but that was happening too (metaphor alert!). Pre-party, Dorinda gave John a Cliffs Notes course on etiquette and ran through How To Apologize flashcards to prepare him for seeing Bethenny, but there is no turning back time there. Some stains just simply will not budge – John apparently being one of them!
Amid the the center of the giant fall-out about Dorinda Medley‘s relationship, is the 20-year friendship of Dorinda and Ramona Singer. But are they truly that close?! Not according to Sonja Morgan, who hints that the ladies may be lying about their level of friendship!
Speaking of RHONY stars past and present – Bethenny Frankel was spotted by the paps walking in Soho and then they spotted Jill Zarin and her husband Bobby across town.
Ramona Singerhas been quite the social butterfly lately! She hit up the premiere of “Equals” during the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and then attended the #ActuallySheCan Film Series event at Bow Tie Chelsea Cinemas.
Keeping the New York Housewives theme going – Sonja Morgan stepped out for the 8th Annual Blossom Ball benefiting the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
In the gallery below you’ll find plenty of non-RHONY stars, too: Tamera Mowry, Kyle Richards, Rob Kardashian, La La Anthony, Adrienne Maloof and more!
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.
After the blow up between Dorinda, Bethenny Frankel, and Ramona at the brassiere (or “brawr” – depending on who you ask) party, everyone has a drink and Dorinda puffs a Newport Light 100 (or maybe it was one of Jules Wainstein‘s Virginia Slims left over from 1977 kept in a fireproof dry box under the bed, the blessed creatures pulled out for emergencies only. She better buy some on eBay to get through Real Housewives Of New York).
Tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens Live featured a pretty laid back Sonja Morgan and an always adorable Fredrik Eklund. Amy Schumer was originally scheduled to be there with Ramona, but Amy had a throat issue and is hoping to make an appearance next week, where Ramona is now scheduled.
They jump right in with questions. Is Sonja helping Luann de Lessepsplan her wedding? “We do spend a lot of time talking about it. She is over the moon excited.” Andy mentions that Sonja dated Lu’s guy, “That’s right, so I know both very well.” And she confirms that Ramona dated him, too. “It’s going to be very interesting, you’ll have to watch.”
Ramona seems to be having difficulty keeping confidences close with her old friendships – she’s reportedly having issues with Sonja, and her unhappiness with Dorinda’s choice of boyfriend is really bringing out the worst in old Pinot!
