“With friendships, I believe that it’s OK to let some stuff slide,” explains Luann, “but if something is really bothering me, I try to talk it out. Dorinda is the same way. She wants to say her piece and then move on.” And say her piece, she certainly did.
It’s Go Time! This week’s Real Housewives Of New York picks up right where we left off – in the Hamptons at Ramona Singer’s home, with Dorinda Medley poised to pounce on Sonja Morgan. And pounce, she does. She does NOT make it nice. No, no, no. And Ramona couldn’t be happier (or more Pinot’d up) that she gets to host the party that will launch a thousand storylines this season. Ramona isn’t so happy later on when Carole Radziwill un-invites her to her election party, though. This week also marks the emergence of Tinsley Mortimer out from under Sonja’s tattered wing when she sneaks out for dinner with Luann De Lesseps and Dorinda – but fails to invite her benefactress along! Oh, I could just pinch myself with delight at the Jane Austen-ness of the whole Tinsley/Sonja tableau! It’s just…delicious.
As Sonja and Tinsley stroll into the party, Tinsley is nervous to meet Dorinda. But there’s no need! Because after double kisses with Luann, Dorinda plays nice with Tinsley, trading small talk about how it’s going living at Sonja’s Socialite Rehabilitation Center. But Tinsley goes deep fast, revealing her messy past – then instantly regretting the word vomit. Dorinda’s like, Who cares? I see a limping gazelle strolling through the weeds… She’s got her sights set on Sonja, and only Sonja, tonight.
Bethenny owned up to her topless scene in a movie and didn’t seem bothered by that being a public topic of conversation. However, she seemed infuriated by Ramona bringing Bryn into the discussion. It makes me wonder if Ramona only did this because Bethenny didn’t immediately say “you’re both beautiful” in response to a photo of Ramona and Avery Singer. That definitely seemed to upset her, even more than the hurt she felt when Bethenny neglected to send her a newsletter and slide show about getting two dogs.
It feels like Andy Cohen has a night off as the host whenever Sonja Morgan appears on Watch What Happens Live. He doesn’t have to push her to say much, yet Sonja delivers with amazing information that he wasn’t even asking for. She always comes through.
And last night’s episode was even crazier because Real Housewives enthusiast Michael Rapaport was also in the clubhouse. Sonja revealed a tryst with an A-list actor, accused Dorinda Medley of “always being drunk,”and clarified those racy photos of her on the floor with that stripper. If you missed the episode, you need to look for it online. It was just that good, but if you’re already reading this, then I got you covered with the show’s essential moments.
We open with the ladies settling in to their respective Hamptons homes – Carole Radziwill is bunking at Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl pad, Dorinda is staying at Luann De Lesseps’ house, Ramona is chillin’ at her abode because no one can abide her, and Sonja has somehow convinced unnamed “friends” to lend their house to Tinsley and her for the weekend (which they’ll arrive at the following day). Bethenny is hoping Carole can cool her jets on the election talk, while Luann is showing Dorinda how to literally cool her nether-regions on her super fancy crapper. “It’s the Cadillac of toilets!” squeals the soon to be ex-Countess.
“So we finally get to meet the new girl—oh wait, I don’t. But before I get there, let me talk about a few other things,” snarks Dorinda in her blog. “Hannah has decided to move out. It took a long time for Hannah and I to heal after Richard’s death. She decided to move back in with me, and I decided to mother her as much as I could during the aftermath of his death. It was the best decision for both of us, but now after five years she has decided it’s time to move out and get her own apartment. I am happy to say it’s in NYC and not too far away.”
Two weeks ago Luann’s 22-year old daughter, Victoria de Lesseps, was arrested in the Hamptons for a DUI, blowing a .15 on a breathalyzer after being pulled over, then brought into the police station under suspicion of intoxicated driving.
As her friend in my head, I wanted to warn Luann about Tom’s antics plenty of times, but she doesn’t seem to care and they’re already married- so what’s the purpose of belaboring this topic? Luann is all about this marriage and she is going to do whatever she can to sell this marriage and let us all know how happy she is.
