Hey all you cool cats and kittens! This quarantine has got my sanity holding on like one of Joe Exotic’s hoop earrings right now. But the one good thing that’s come of it during self isolation is the emergence of excellent TV. Netflix first did us a solid with Love Is Blind. Now they have stepped up their crazy game with Tiger King.
The show features toothless hillbillies, alligator fire pit espionage, monkeys in diapers, hit men who decide half way to the location of their hit that they just aren’t feeling it. Ciggs a plenty. Not to mention the epitome of a crazy cat lady accused of feeding her late husband to their tigers. The whole internet is going mad for this show and it’s obvious to see why. Even celebrities are flocking to the show like it’s catnip.
Ramona Singer has been keeping us pretty entertained during our quarantine from the coronavirus. Her Instagram is a sight to behold. Just yesterday, she posted a video of herself in a white negligee, mopping her kitchen floor with bleach. I’m still unclear if it was a tutorial or if she was just documenting what her days are like but either way, it was highly entertaining Ramona content.
Now that she’s cooped up with her daughter Avery Singer and ex-husband Mario Singer, it’s clear that Ramona has some extra time on her hands. She went into quarantine with them in Boca Raton, Florida earlier this month and despite the unconventional arrangement, it seems to be working for them. Mario is even stepping it up to help her out with all her errands since she is high risk for the virus due to a recent Lyme Disease diagnosis.
If you haven’t binged on Love is Blind on Netflix, I have no idea what you’re waiting for. I watched back to back episodes over the course of three days. I don’t know if I’ve ever gone through a series that fast. Not even past seasons of Real Housewives on Hulu kept me at such rapt attention.
With that said, I do have a bit of a Love is Blind hangover. Meaning, I had too much of it but somehow, getting more is the only way I’m going to feel better. You know, like the hair of the dog. Maybe that sounds dramatic. But, you are talking to someone who just admitted to dedicating three days to one TV show. Moderation is not my strong suit.
I admit it- I can’t get enough Ramona Singer. Specifically her social media. Her Instagram is gold. She’s regularly showing off recipes that have been around forever, renaming them and passing them off as her own. She’s always giving us the best selfies – her awkwardly perched on a fancy chair or standing in her bedroom and squeezing her dog within an inch of her life (sorry, Coco). Throw in all the off-rhythm dancing videos, trips to Aspen and FaceTuning one account can manage and I will follow her for life.
But it hasn’t been all selfies and trips to Aspen for Ramona, as The Real Housewives of New York veteran recently revealed she was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Having Lyme Disease may not have totally slowed her down, but it does mean that she has to be extra careful when dealing with the coronavirus. And the ageless beauty isn’t taking any chances when it comes to her health.
Bethenny Frankel is once again on the front lines of a crisis. Since her departure from Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny has worked harder than ever to make sure her BStrong Foundation is ready to help those in need. We all remember the good work she did for the people of Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, which was featured on the show. Now she’s doing the same for those suffering during the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s not hard to see how we are affected by this coronavirus. Many of us are quarantined and spending way more time with our families than we are used to. Of course, it’s a blessing to be able to slow down and pay better attention to the ones we love but I also can’t judge those who are already feeling the strain of all this extra face to face time. I keep hearing about how we are going to have a baby boom nine months from now but I’m also wondering how many relationships are going to go south over this stressful time. One relationship that isn’t suffering? Bethenny and her boyfriend, Paul Bernon.
Camille Grammer isn’t exactly my favorite housewife. Despite being a pot-stirring “friend of” last season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, I’m tired of her always playing the victim and accusing everyone of attacking her. Sure, I don’t mind that she called out Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley for owing people money. But true to form, she padded that attempted take down in by telling us that she was forced to buy Burberry on consignment after losing her house in the California wildfires. The horror people, the horror. As much as I felt sorry for her losing her house, I thought maybe she would be in a slightly different head space and maybe not in the mood to try and disparage Dorit in that moment. But then I guess she wouldn’t be the Camille we all know and
Let’s admit it” Camille is working hard to get that diamond back and complaining every step of the way!
Whether you loved her or hated her during her time on Real Housewives of New York, I think we can all agree that Bethenny Frankel is one of the most generous housewives out there. Ever since the start of her charity organization the BStrong Foundation, she has worked tirelessly to help those affected by a crisis. Her list of ongoing missions to help is vast and impressive. BStrong provided crisis relief for Hurricane Irma and Maria, along with the Amazonian, Australian and California fires. The coronavirus outbreak will be no exception.
Thanks to Bethenny, people are already getting what they need most on the ground. This is especially helpful for those who don’t have the items that they desperately need to stay safe against the fast-moving virus.
Claudia Jordan is gone from housewives but clearly not forgotten. The Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member was only on for one season but made quite an impact when she famously went toe-to-toe with OG NeNe Leakes. But for some reason, Claudia just didn’t fit on the show. She made a quick exit before we even really got a chance to know her. I actually really liked her. Anyone who could show up on their first season and read NeNe has my adoration forever. Maybe she didn’t have the most interesting story line (ok, she didn’t really have one at all). Still, I thought she brought some much needed sanity to the show. I think every franchise needs one level headed housewife that seems grounded in actual reality.
Is Kary Brittingham that housewife on Real Housewives of Dallas? Honestly, I don’t know considering how new she is. She doesn’t seem to resonate with fans, despite gracefully handling now defunct cast mate LeeAnne Locken’s relentless attacks on her ethnicity.
