One of the gifts that keeps on giving is Ms. Sonja Tremont Morgan. Her star shines bright on Real Housewives of New York and no amount of vodka or bad news can dull her sparkle. Sonja kind of lives on a pink cloud of
delusion dogs, rambling stories, and blasts from the past.
Sonja regales her friends with legendary tales of Gstaad and tripping the light fantastic on Diddy’s yacht. Who can forget her close and personal friendship with the likes of JFK Jr. and Madonna? Hell, she probably wrote Like A Virgin and demanded Madge take the credit. Then we have Lady Morgan’s love life. Viewers know there was a Dubin and D ‘Agostino. A Frenchie, a Rocco, and some shirtless artist dude named Bryan. And now Sonja reminds us there was also once a Serhant.
What are we all doing here without Dorinda Medley but an abundance of Leah McSweeney? Well, life is full of twists and turns and after six seasons on Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda was asked to “take a pause” from filming to hopefully collect herself and maybe try to soften her vicious tongue. Former co-star Luann de Lesseps said filming sans Dorinda is “less angry” but hopes she will return at some point in the future.
Of course, if you ask everyone’s ray of sunshine, Ramona Singer, “no one missed Dorinda” and her real reason for departing is because she no longer got free rent. Speaking of rent, Dorinda has a black book of important contacts and Million Dollar Listing New York realtor and not unpleasant to look at agent Steve Gold is in that book. Steve needed someone with connections in the Berkshires and I dare say there are fewer people more well-connected than Dorinda. Thankfully Dorinda answered Steve’s call and shows up in a future episode of MDLNY.
Whether you love Bravolebrities or love to hate them, the thread tying us all together is that we’re Bravo fans. If you’re reading this article, you love Bravo. These shows and the people on them bring us joy. It’s rare that we get the chance to be in a room with thousands of other like-minded people to celebrate that joy.
Two years ago, Bravo gifted us with BravoCon. It put thousands of fans together, for the first time ever, in the same room with Bravolebrities from Real Housewives, Below Deck, Vanderpump Rules, Shahs of Sunset, Top Chef, Married to Medicine, Southern Charm, Million Dollar Listing, Summer House and more! If you’re like me, and you missed out in 2019, you now have a second chance at this experience, because BravoCon is back!
Well, Dorit Kemsley and husband PK Kemsley are on the
lam move once again. The Real Housewives of Encino Beverly Hills couple have surprisingly listed their home for sale, after living in it for only one year. Viewers might remember the sketchy details surrounding the “purchase” of the home in August 2019. Amid a plethora of legal and financial issues, Dorit and PK moved to the “trendy farmhouse” just steps away from other Encino denizen, Kyle Richards.
This season, we saw Dorit and PK’s efforts in home renovations. Their quest to make the new Encino property their “forever home”, a place where Jaggy and little Phoenix would frolic in a backyard surrounded by idyllic views of the San Fernando Valley… But times, they are a changin’, and I guess “forever” means roughly about 12 months. Dorit and PK are looking for a place to live once again, so it’s fair to ask, will there ever be a Beverly Hills Housewife that actually lives in Beverly Hills?
It looks like there is a war brewing between two of my favorite real estate shows, Million Dollar Listing LA and Selling Sunset! And the spark that lit the flame is none other than Andy Cohen of course. Perhaps Andy is a bit jealous that Netflix is stealing some of Bravo’s thunder in the realm of reality TV real estate shows?
Most Bravo fans know about Million Dollar Listing, but if you haven’t checked out Selling Sunset on Netflix yet, grab your popcorn and get started! Who wouldn’t want to watch twin brothers Jason Oppenheim and Brett Oppenheim dominate Hollywood Hills real estate with a group of (mostly) blonde real estate agents who only wear six inch stilettos? It’s glossy and fun, but the cast of Million Dollar Listing LA doesn’t seem to think so.
There was so much good content to come out of BravoCon, but I can’t help wondering about what we didn’t get to see. What was going down behind the scenes, behind closed doors, and after hours? Even a month after the inaugural event, there are new stories and bits of information trickling out. And I hope the tidbits just keep on coming.
On a recent Watch What Happens Live After Show episode, Kenya Moore and Andy Cohen dished on the weekend.
Looks like things are getting interesting for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Kyle Richards. Not only is Kyle wallowing in the success of her
highly anticipated clothing line, her husband Mauricio Umansky has some new developments to share as well. As you know, Mauricio created the incredibly fruitful real estate firm, The Agency. Mo’s company has been double-dipping in the exposure department, gaining recognition from both RHOBH and Million Dollar Listing LA.
Being well known can turn around and bite you in the backside because Mauricio has some explaining to do. Back in March of this year, Kyle’s husband had a bit of a situation. Mauricio and The Agency were sued for fraud when dealing with a massive Malibu estate. Then everything became rather muddy in the transaction. Obviously, Mo is denying any misrepresentation (don’t they all…) but the details speak for themselves. Mauricio requested to have the case dismissed but the judge was all, not so fast buddy boy. The courts ruled there was enough evidence of fraud to proceed with the case. Now Kyle is not wearing her caftans, she is hiding under them because Mauricio just got another lawsuit to add to his collection.
Dorit and PK Kemsley need a break, and it looks like they might have gotten one. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has had quite a year. After losing a dog in the worst adoption ever, Dorit also lost a good friend. In the midst of her personal drama, Dorit and PK were suffering financial drama as well.
Encino Beverly Beach by Dorit was under scrutiny from Dorit’s business partner. PK may or may not have had an emotional affair with some gambling tables. As Dorit’s relationships faltered, so did her bank account.
In an effort to
keep PK’s legs from being broken control their spending, Dorit and PK made the decision to unload Sam Nazarian’s their mansion in Beverly Hills. An open house, featured on Million Dollar Listing LA in January 2019 lead to a sobering update at the end of the episode. Two weeks after the event, Dorit and PK were robbed. They were among a slew of celebrities targeted by bougie thieves. Now, on the heels of moving into another rental home, Dorit and PK are breathing a sigh of relief that someone might be going to jail – and it isn’t them.
