The Real Housewives of New York City Recap

nyc-week-9

As this season of the Real Housewives of New York City moves along, it becomes more and more obvious that Jill Zarin is the “source” who leaked this story and this story to the press. The first story is the infamous Bethenny is friendless story and the second one is the story that came out earlier this year about Alex and Simon possibly being cut from the show.

Moving right along to this week’s recap -

Bethenny – I blogged about her pregnancy leak last year and thought it was very wrong for Perez Hilton to leak the story, especially considering her age amongst other factors. I mean the woman was only 8 weeks pregnant for goodness sakes. Her reaction and Jason’s reaction seemed genuine and understandable. And a lot of people are now asking how could this have leaked to Perez? Well for one, there are usually 6 – 10 production people involved in the filming of each scene for the show, and considering Bethenny filmed her pregnancy test just weeks earlier, the possibilities of the leak are endless. Plus in Perez’s story, he claimed Bethenny was in talks with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy with them at the three month mark. My guess is someone from UsWeekly leaked that info to Perez. But I loved Jason in this episode, he seems like a stand up man, and perfect for Bethenny.

Next we see LuAnn, Sonja and Jill engage in a conversation about Bethenny and party planning, during which Jill informs us she has a google alert on herself. For some reason, I am not surprised. By the way google alerts is something that alerts you whenever a story is written about someone, a show etc. Jill, the gossip queen that she is, seems more concerned about the gossip factor than the actual news about Bethenny’s pregnancy. And you have to love her dig about LuAnn’s evite invitations not being up to par. LuAnn also informs us that Bethenny blocked her from twitter, which is a bit petty in my opinion for Bethenny to do that, if she did. Was a bit surprised about this as it doesn’t seem like Bethenny’s M.O.

We then get a brief view of new housewife Jennifer Gilbert during a meeting with Jill, and umm yeah, with Jill doing most of the talking, we will have to wait until the next episode to learn anything about Jennifer. Sonja is starting to grow on me, she seemed a bit more interesting in this episode, as she showed us there’s more to her than just talking about sex. Taking Ramona along with her to the plastic surgeon’s office was probably not necessary and just done for good tv. Her scene with her physic during ,which she got emotional when talking about her former marriage, was a however good scene. Great to see another dimension to her.

And then we have the phone call between Alex and Bethenny, during which Bethenny confirms her pregnancy news. And Bethenny informs Alex that Jill sent her an email on how to handle the rumor. Just like Jill, to want to involve herself in the “scandal” as a means to get press/publicity for herself. Anyone remember last summer when Jill started hanging out with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan, and even began speaking to the press on behalf of Jon? Enough said. Bethenny was fortunately able to see through Jill’s very transparent colors.

Bethenny then makes the error of casually informing Alex that she could tell Jill she’s done with the friendship if she sees Jill talking about the pregnancy news. Alex, who ofcourse has a score to settle with Jill couldn’t be happier to deliver the message. We then get to Ramona’s event with Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn in attendance. Jill informs us she plans on taking the high road, and will not ruin Ramona’s event like Ramona did her Kodak event. Seconds after saying this, we see Jill saying there’s no need for any more skin care lines in the world and then proceeds to trash the food at the event. Oh yeah, did I mention Ramona’s event was to promote her new skin care line? Nice to see Jill being the “bigger person” on this one.

This recap was written on Friday evening, I then decided not to post it because it was too late in the day. Then decided on Saturday I should just scrap it all together, then decided on Sunday that I should probably post it since it’s already been written, and now it’s Monday and what the hay! So below is the recap, hope you enjoy.

And just like that, we are midway through the third season of the Real Housewives of New York City. Last night’s episode was interesting but the best part Bethenny Frankel’s appearance on Bravo’s was Watch What Happens.

We started off last night’s episode with a little TMI involving Jill Zarin and her sick dog. Moving right along to Bethenny visiting Alex, and sharing her engagement news with her. Bethenny reveals Alex is the first person she’s telling, and plans on telling all the other housewives at a later date. It’s nice to see a genuine friendship developing between Alex and Bethenny, who would have thought? Who would have guessed? That’s the great thing about the housewives’ series, you never know what’s next to come.

Next up is a get together between the single women on the show, we get to see the Countess, Kelly and new housewife Samantha from Sex & the City Sonja Morgan meet up for drinks. Interestingly enough, all three of these women married much older rich men, and all three are still holding on to their last names. Sonja does what she does best, which is to blab about sex. Kelly attempts to downplay her past relationship with male gigolo Max, which is interesting considering she spent all of last season flaunting him around. I’m still on the fence about the addition of Sonja. Perhaps its because this season has been very interesting thus far, but I’m not really seeing what she adds. When you think about it, Bethenny, Ramona, Jill, Kelly, and even Alex are all one of a kind. I mean really, have you ever come across anyone like Ramona? The answer is likely no, but Sonja doesn’t seem to have that unique factor. Anyone who’s seen an episode of Sex & the City, knows this woman is a Samantha wannabe.

And how cute and funny was Kelly’s daughter when she decided not to talk to the cameras, but rather write down what was happening. Very cute scene.

The big event of the night came towards the end of the episode at Kelly’s event for Gotham magazine. For some reason, some of the ladies (Bethenny, Kelly and Alex) decided this was the night to sport their shortest attires. Bethenny’s one liner about what the ladies had on was priceless. “This was the party evidently that we were all told to wear a square of toilet paper and make an outfit out of it. I mean I literally, I didn’t have a top on, Kelly’s vagina was hanging out. Alex’s ass cheeks. Literally, it was like a yard sale of body parts,” said Bethenny. Seriously, it must be hard for one to hate Bethenny because love her or hate her, she will make you laugh!

Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City

Coming off a very emotional episode last week, things seemed to take a calmer turn on this episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, as we got to meet the newest cougar housewife on the block, Sonja Morgan. More on her later.

On to this week’s recap, not much to write about so this will be brief. Will however touch on Jill Zarin’s appearance on Watch What Happens last night.

Ramona - Once again, we had another Ramonattack. Someone needs to let Ramona know her meds are meant to be taken daily, and not just when she feels like it. Her walk on the runway was simply priceless, and all the more surprising considering how serious she took it. Her comments to Jill at Jill’s event was unnecessary and uncalled for. It was absolutely the wrong time and place. She definitely needs a filter.

Kelly – I think I’m starting to see the issue with Kelly. She came on this season trying to be the fun and happy Kelly, which is making her appear rather inauthentic and weird. Her attempt to take Simon shopping and dress him, umm a bit weird. She’s more interesting when she’s being a real human being, such as during her argument with Ramona. And then we got the old Kelly back when she decided to mock Ramona in a elementary like tone after she walked away, really what person over the age of 10 does that?. Overall, I think I’m starting to get Kelly. She’s one of those people who simply lacks depth. She’s that person who can only be an acquaintance, and never a close friend because there simply isn’t much to her.

Bethenny – It was good to see Bethenny dealing well with her dad not wanting to see her. Not much on Bethenny this week, but did we really need to see her sitting on the toilet? Way TMI. Bethenny should have closed the door, and Bravo should have left that part out.

Jill – The mean Jill reared its ugly head once again on last night’s episode, making a lot of snarky remarks. However, her appearance on Watch What Happens was a must see last night. Seeing her talk in circles, make up excuses, all while being defensive was interesting to watch. According to Jill, the reason she was so cold to Bethenny was because she wanted them to make up off camera. Really Jill??? Can someone remind this woman that she is on a reality show that showcases her personal life and relationships? All of the things to not want on TV, why would making up with a friend be one of them? Yeah, it made no sense to me either.

The Real Housewives of New York City 3

So last night’s episode of Real Housewives of NYC was rather intense. Almost to the point of draining, I can only imagine how the women involved felt, if I as a viewer, felt somewhat drained after watching. Overall, it as a very good episode.

So in doing this recap, I will just go down the list and talk about each housewife. It’s a long recap so I’ll get right to it.

Ramona - We’ll start off with Ramona. This woman makes it really difficult to like her. I decided last night that I have a like/dislike relationship with her as a viewer. One minute you can’t believe her outrageous behavior (her comments to Bethenny during their walk), and then the next minute she apologizes and then says something insightful( calling Jill out on being a hypocrite for planning the Kelly and Bethenny talk/”ambush” last season). It’s definitely a Ramonacoaster. At the end of the day, it’s somewhat starting to get old. I mean, what is really wrong with this woman? She lacks tact and is in dire need of a filter. You learn around the age of 10 that you can’t just blurt out everything you think, so I’m not exactly sure why Ramona, at age 54, hasn’t mastered that art quite yet. I mean does she have some sort of chemical imbalance or something? Sighs, her words to Bethenny last night were really mean and uncalled for. Her attack of Kelly weeks ago about her boob job was really mean and uncalled for as well. Ramona is going to have to learn someday that just because you apologize for something doesn’t make it okay. The whole I have diarrhea of the mouth thing is getting old. I think it’s time she take some Pepto-Bismol and learn to keep her mouth shut. She says these things, apologizes, and then does it again the next day….

Jill – On to Jill, the new villain of the season. I remember Bethenny’s appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens talk show after the premiere of the first episode this season. Andy asked her if she had any remorse about the end of her friendship with Jill, Bethenny said she had absolutely no regrets. At the time, I thought that was mean and cold of Bethenny. After watching the last few episodes, I must say I fully understand why she felt that way. I agree with Alex, Jill likes to keep score, and is definitely very unforgiving. I really liked Jill the first season of the show, and didn’t start to not like her until last season, especially after what I thought was very mean behavior from her during last year’s reunion show. What I’ve noticed about Jill is her NEED to always dig at others, and put them down. It’s like she needs to bring others down, and always make sure they are never on the same level as she is. For example, she seemed to take some perverse pleasure in letting Kelly know her playboy issue was not for the 40th anniversary, and ofcourse letting Alex know just how “awful” her kids are.

Plus I’m not sure I’m buying her tears from last night, it seemed a bit forced. She was so cold to Bethenny last night, and I’m sure Bethenny has done and said some hurtful things to Jill, but I highly doubt Jill is completely innocent. I honestly think her vindictiveness, and the fact that she was so hell bent on “destroying” Bethenny was why she was so unwilling to forgive. Jill is simply not a nice person to sum this up. It’s quite ironic that she’s mentioned several times this season that she is “scared” of Bethenny. Which is interesting coming from someone who has tried to rally everyone on her side, making sure that even in Bethenny’s deepest darkest hour, she will be left standing alone, with no friend and no “troops.” No Jill, Bethenny is the one who should be scared of YOU and your juvenile behavior. You are a mean spirited, jealous and a very vindictive person.

Kelly – Oh Kelly Kelly Kelly… I think Ramona’s comment on next week’s episode kinda sums this up, “I can’t talk to you, you have no brain.” A bit mean for Ramona to say, but honestly I don’t understand this girl, or oops I mean woman. She is 41 years old after all, even though she acts like 12. I’m just confused, I mean is she a moron? brain dead? I’m literally scratching my head as I type this. The things she says, the way she acts, added to the things other people say that just always seems to completely go over her head. I don’t get her and find her exhausting and really weird. For someone who claims to have a degree from the prestigious Columbia, I find her quite moronic. And yes Bethenny was really awful to her in the press last year, but to completely blame Bethenny for damaging her reputation is something I will have to disagree with. Her behavior and bizzaro actions on the show is what damaged her rep. I will add that Kelly’s saving grace is the fact she doesn’t seem to be a mean or vicious person.
