This week, The Real Housewives of New York hit the road. It’s time for everyone to assemble at the dinner table and give one another a verbal dressing down. Because this is what they do best, no? The ladies are heading to the Hamptons for Bethenny Frankel’s birthday, Carole Radziwill’s post-marathon soiree – hosted by Hamptons maven herself, Ramona Singer – and for the annual WWE match between Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan. Dorinda has been mainlining martinis in preparation for the event. Sonja has been taking her kaftans out of cellophane for the event.
Carole is driving up with Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda. But the bigger point of contention is where she’s staying – at a hotel with Tinsley instead of at Bethenny’s Hamptons pad. Why? Well, we get two different answers. Carole says that Bethenny’s “got a full house” so she opted to stay elsewhere. But Bethenny claims she invited Carole, but thinks her ex-bestie doesn’t want to come over because Bethenny’s daughter will be there. “Carole needs a best friend really close to at all times,” says Bethenny, who presumes Tinsley is this new best friend. “They’re thick as thieves.”
She still has tension with her former roommate Sonja Morgan, she’s coming for Luann de Lesseps and her quickie marriage to Tom D’Agostino, and she has an on-again-off-again romance with Scott Kluth. She’s even straightened her hair for a scene or two- which is a big deal considering how attached she is to her signature curls.
Luann is upset with Carole for not caring about her divorce. Carole’s girl Tinsley Mortimercalled out Luann for the quickie marriage and refusal to open up about her breakup. And now Luann and Carole are tweeting up a storm. Well, Carole is tweeting up a storm. Luann had no issue sharing her true feelings on Twitter, but she didn’t compose as many tweets.
To hold you over until the next episode airs, Carole and Bethenny’s beef spilled over to Twitter and this time it has to do with Bethenny’s charitable efforts. During the first episode of Season 10, Bethenny invited Tinsley Mortimer and Ramona Singer to a gala to thank them for being so supportive of her hurricane relief work. Carole was noticeably absent.
And just like the last two seasons, the main topic of conversation is Tom D’Agostino. He doesn’t even appear this season (at least as far as I know), and he’s still giving so much to this show. Last year (and the year before) Luann was all “about Tom,” but now it’s the Tinsley and Carole who want to talk about her ex.
You know a Real Housewives show is good when it returns with the same cast it had last season and when it doesn’t rely on “Friends of the Housewives” or other side characters to make it interesting. The only show that statement applies to is Real Housewives of New York.
Aside from all that boring chatter about the marathon- which is a great achievement that I could never ever pull off- Carole Radziwillblessed the fandom with some amazing shade during the last Real Housewives of New York episode.
At this point in the season, it looks like it’s Carole and Tinsley Mortimer are on one side and Luann de Lessepsand Sonja Morgan on the other. Carole didn’t use up all of her best shade during the episode. She had a lot more to say about Sonja and Lu.
After a tough time navigating a long distance relationship and a breakup, Tinsley Mortimerand Scott Kluthare back together- according to reports.
During the first two episodes of Real Housewives of New York Season 10, Tinsley had been very vocal to get back together with Scott and her desire to eventually get married. In the trailer for the season, we saw Scott showing up to surprise Tinsley, and now it looks like they were able to work out their differences and rekindle the romance.
