There’s an illness and it’s spreading. It seems several former Housewives are plagued with, “Pretty Please Notice Me!?!” We’ve seen the symptoms in Kelly Bensimon, from Real Housewives of New York. Jill Zarin may also need to seek treatment. Then there is poor, long-term sufferer, Brandi Glanville. Our Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
We’ve recently seen Brandi pop up on an episode where she shared good times with Denise Richards. I’m still trying to root for you, Denise! But Brandi’s motives are clear. She wants us to know she is great pals with newbie Denise. #cheersbitch Now we know there is a vacancy on the show. A big gap needs to be filled. So is Brandi shooting her shot while shooting her mouth off, again? Now she is revealing the “truth” about her
failures bad luck. I’ll give you one guess on who Brandi blames for her downfall…
Hasn’t it been a great season of the Real Housewives of New York? These ladies bring it every year and this season is no exception. Real friendships, real grudges and real forgiveness separate this show from the others. Plus, the New York Housewives do it all with humor–and a sense of ridiculousness–that is often lacking from other Housewife shows.
Often ridiculous Ramona Singer has been back to her old ways this season–meaning she is completely self-centered and expects that everyone around her should feel blessed by her presence. Of course, Luann de Lesseps’ self-absorbed post-rehab behavior has made her the target of most of the other ladies, so Ramona has received a bit of a behavior pass this season. The Real Housewives of New York reunion recently taped, however, and apparently Ramona’s season pass was revoked by Dorinda Medley.
Y’all, Lala Kent, the woman who brings a baby bottle as her comfort item on group trips and openly trades sexual favors for luxury goods and services, has offered encouraging words to Luann de Lesseps about her sobriety journey.
After sloppily resisting arrest in December of 2017, Lu was offered probation in lieu of (get it?? in “Lu” of???) jail time. As part of her probation, Lu was prohibited from drinking. However, on May 23, after she admitted to consuming “2 glasses of mimosas” (suuure, Lu) after one of her cabaret shows. Luann entered into another plea deal involving intensive out-patient rehab. Lala has publicly and openly dealt with her own struggles with alcohol abuse. Lala also publicly credits Alcoholics Anonymous for saving her life. Lala, I don’t think “anonymous” means what you think it means.
This show I tell you. The Real Housewives Of New York ladies know how to do it right. Every episode is like going to an all you can eat buffet.
Only on Real Housewives Of New York can you have a drunken collapse over an argument about cabaret turn into political commentary on the last time Sonja Morgan probably felt relevant. Which flows into competing artists giving out free art and Ramona Singer inviting her ex-husband and new boyfriend to a party, then being forced to admit to making out with her former friend’s ex-husband in front of another friend who also hooked up with this same guy.
Ramona Singer has had an interesting season on Real Housewives of New York. She has not really had much of a storyline, but Ramona has been making her presence known on each episode by being, well, Ramona. Following her split from Mario Singer, Ramona seemed a little nicer, a little more humble. Dare I say, even a little bit likable?
This season, however, Ramona has been back to her old self-centered, thoughtless ways. Sonja Morgan thinks Ramona is very much into herself. Ramona has been called out for rude comments she made about Dennis Shields after his death. She also chose not to invite her co-stars to her birthday party–but made sure they knew all about her fabulous celebration! And she has treated newbie Barbara Kavovit like an evil stepsister. Now, Ramona has put her foot in her mouth regarding one of her co-stars–Season 11 lightning rod Luann de Lesseps.
You can really take the Real Housewives Of New York anywhere, turn them loose, and let them do their thing. They’re sort of like cats in that yeah, their best operating mode requires an overseer to sprinkle some kibbles in a dish, but mostly they’ll be their same whacky selves anywhere and everywhere. No prodding needed!
Last week’s episode ended with a wasted Sonja Morgan collapsing on the ground to Bethenny Frankel‘s commend to go to sleep. This week’s episode features Sonja getting a visit from the paramedics. Sonja probably believes this is a front to bring male strippers into the house, but au contraire – she’s actually getting some medial attention in case she is concussed.
Ah, Kelly Bensimon. I see you, dear. The former Real Housewives of New York
wackadoo amateur photographer is speaking again. We don’t need to be reminded of Kelly. She burned SATCHELS OF GOLD into our heads years ago.
I will give her this, Kelly provided some legendary moments during her time on the show. #alsharpton Her epic breakdown behavior on Scary Island had people questioning both her motives and mental health. I have felt bad for Kelly over the years, but all of that is gone. Kelly is now forcing me to defend Bethenny Frankel, and I can’t forgive her for that.
Luann de Lesseps has been a lightning rod of controversy this season. If she is not chattering on about her cabaret show on the Real Housewives of New York, Luann is talking about her sobriety. Which is probably natural as she is enthusiastic about her new career–and she claims to be happy about her new found sobriety. As we have seen throughout the season, however, Luann’s co-stars are a bit less enthralled with the Countess’ epic self-absorption, which seems to be her newly discovered superpower.
Sonja Morgan has claimed Luann treats her co-stars like fans. Tinsley Mortimer says she has never seen Luann as arrogant as she has been recently. And Dorinda Medley has called Luann blatantly rude. During the ladies’ trip to Luann’s new round house in upstate New York, she was confronted about her me-me-me attitude and endless talk of cabaret. And all things Luann. Which makes you wonder how she really feels about her houseguests calling her out on her behavior in her own home.
