The Real Housewives Of New York Recap: A Slippery Slope

Last week’s episode was a little rough for Tinsley Mortimer, but she’s very grateful to have a new sympathetic ear in Bethenny Frankel. The Real Housewives of New York City star took to her blog to share her appreciation for Bethenny’s kindness and to apologize for her loose lips oversharing private marital information, too.

Tinsley shared her relief at Bethenny’s empathy. “After a rough night with the girls and feeling as if they really have little understanding of the unrelenting and unending stress I still feel, I decided from that point forward to try and be quiet about my situation. Though feeling a bit chagrined from the night before, I got up and prepared for a fun, distracting day on the slopes. It did make me feel better when Bethenny approached me and appeared to have a greater understanding of what I was feeling and apologized for the gang-up the previous evening. I appreciated the gesture, especially from her, because she has been going through her own drama.”

Tinsley continued, “On the ski lift, Bethenny again mentioned what had happened the night before. Since her ex-husband had just been arrested for stalking her, I found her reassurance of my situation very generous of heart and comforting. Telling me to take my time to heal about my trauma was just what I needed to hear. I have never been a whiner, and I was not looking for sympathy from the night before. Everyone handles their problems in their own way. Talking about what had happened to me in Palm Beach is a catharsis and a way for me to heal. However, I am coming to the conclusion that people really do not want to hear about trauma or abuse from a relationship. Quite simply, it makes them uncomfortable.”

Tinsley ends her blog with an apology to her ex-husband for her tipsy tea spilling during Truth or Dare. “Ugh! One last thing: I do want to say this about the dinner party after our day of skiing where Tito’s loosened my lips far too much… What happens within a marriage is private. I had no right mentioning something during Truth or Dare that involved what I thought was humorous but that happened within my marriage, and I sincerely apologize to my former husband. I think the world of him and would never ever try to embarrass him. I am sincerely sorry.”

Tonight the ladies prepare to head to Mexico. In the latest preview clips, Bethenny tries to have a chat with Ramona Singer about her reasons for not inviting her on the trip yet, Ramona goes off on a tangent that leaves us all confused. Sonja dyes her eyebrows (this is going to be a highlight for the episode, I guarantee it) and lasers off her body hair. Tinsley reveals that she is moving out of Sonja’s house and into a hotel for a few months.
