The last few seasons of Real Housewives of New York have no been a good look for Luann de Lesseps. From that quickie marriage (and divorce), to the arrest, to the nonstop cabaret chatter, some fans are worn out.
And so is Lu’s former assistant, Danny Marin. He called out
the former the countess on social media. And, she clapped back, bringing coronavirus into the conversation, as if it actually had something to do with this issue.
I am so happy that Real Housewives of New York returns this week! So, what can we expect? Bethenny Frankel is out, and Leah McSweeney is in with her very own apple.
Luann de Lesseps is back to drinking responsibly (we all hope.) And I am positive that there will be lots and lots of cabaret. But does the tension between Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley continue after last season’s Angel Ball disaster?
Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer has been keeping busy during this coronavirus outbreak. Ramona is self-isolating in Florida with her daughter, Avery Singer, and ex-husband, Mario Singer.
Unfortunately, in March, Ramona was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Since she has a weakened immune system, Ramona is grateful that Mario has been lending a helping hand. Mario even cooks for the family. Did you really expect that Ramona would cook during her self-isolation period? No way!
There are a lot of sad new stories right now because of this awful coronavirus pandemic. However, there are some people who have done positive things in response to this horrible virus.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel has stepped up in a major way, again. Bethenny’s BStrong foundation and its supporters have come through to give healthcare workers the supplies that they desperately need right now.
Most live talk shows are on a hiatus in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. However, there are some that have just switched things up by filming separately at home via video chat. After a bit of a break, Watch What Happens Live returns tonight. And, yes, Andy Cohen will still be hosting, despite his own Coronavirus diagnosis.
Watch What Happens Live will be taped from the privacy of Andy’s apartment. But he will still have some guests on the episode, also taping remotely from wherever they are quarantining.
Real Housewives of New York fans remember seeing Jill Zarin’s daughter Ally Shapiro during the early seasons. One stand out moment was when Jill sent Ali to a camp to lose weight. Jill denied that it was a “fat camp” and said that Ally needed to clean out her system from arthritis medications.
But, once Jill begrudgingly left the show, Ally pretty much stayed out of the spotlight, living a normal life. Good for her. However, she shared a pretty big revelation in a recent interview.
We are all eagerly anticipating the return of Real Housewives of New York next week. Aside from seeing all of our favorites back on TV again, we will “meet” new RHONY cast member Leah McSweeney.
In comparison to the other Real Housewives shows, the Real Housewives of New York cast doesn’t change too often. We all saw Barbara Kavovit struggle when most of the cast refused to welcome her into the group. That was a total fail. How will Leah fare in comparison? She’s hinted about it in some recent interviews.
I still cannot believe that when Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York debuts on April 2, it will be without Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl mogul announced in August of 2019 that she would not be returning to the show.
Of course, Bethenny’s decision did cause some drama with her RHONY co-stars. Ramona Singer claimed that the cast found out that Bethenny was leaving through the press. Ouch!
