Despite not being on the air, the Real Housewives of New York is dominating headlines this week. The Season 13 trailer just dropped, featuring the show’s newest (and first Black) housewife Eboni K. Williams. Bethenny Frankel is finally divorced from her ex-
demon husband Jason Hoppy and engaged to her boo Paul Bernon. And Scott Kluth and Tinsley Mortimer broke up, and won’t stop telling their different versions of the story to the press.
And apparently, Tins and her friends aren’t going to back down with the Scott bashing. They’re sticking to the story that he “blindsided” her with the breakup and ran to the tabloids immediately after, while he claims they’ve been off for months. But now, Team Tinsley has more proof.
After coronavirus outbreaks and major cast shake-ups, the Real Housewives of New York is returning to our TVs this spring. And while the girls won’t be wreaking havoc in the Berkshires with Dorinda Medley this year, the show will introduce its first Black housewife and feature a few ghosts of RHONY past.
On Tuesday, People premiered the first trailer for Season 13 and it truly encompasses everything we love about RHONY. Ramona Singer avoids responsibility at every turn. Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps argue about men. Everyone drinks a little too much. And even Leah McSweeney gets naked in a pool again. All is right in the world.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel hasn’t had it easy when it comes to relationships. On the show, we’ve seen Jason Hoppy put her through the wringer with a nasty divorce. And she was hit hard by the unexpected death of her on-and-off boyfriend Dennis Shields.
After her RHONY days were over, the SkinnyGirl founder seemingly found love with a new boo Paul Bernon, despite a breakup or two thrown in between. Now, B is officially moving into a new chapter in her life. It could mean wedding bells are on the horizon.
Everyone has their own idea about what makes a Housewife notable. For some, it’s the cash flow. Someone like Jennifer Aydin who spends big and loves to talk about it, flaunt it, and talk about it again. For others, it’s all about the party and good times. We’re talking about the Porsha Williams and Sonja Morgans of the crew. Some like the women with a steady grind and a sense of accomplishment like Kandi Burruss, Lisa Vanderpump, or Tiffany Moon. Or just a scattered mess of pure humanity and confusing life choices. Looking at you, Ashley Darby.
Then there are the others. The Housewives that are mostly known for being notorious. Less famous than they are infamous. Some might say Vicki Gunvalson or Nene Leakes fall into this category. Of course, it’s all a matter of personal opinion. I’m sure some of you are already groaning and some of these examples because your perception of an all-star Housewife couldn’t be more different. Are there any Tre-huggers out there??
Former It-Girl turned Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer is known for living in a fairy tale world. All she wants is a happily ever after no matter what it takes. She’s taken to freezing her eggs, ignoring red flags, and ultimately giving up her life and career to try to find it with Scott Kluth.
But that fantasy came crashing down last week when Scott (who apparently hates the press) ran to the tabloids to announce he and Tins have been done for months. Her friends responded, saying she was totally blindsided by the statement. However, new information might reveal that both might have been telling the truth. Apparently, the drama results from miscommunication.
Did anyone really believe that Vicki Gunvalson would fade away quietly after she departed Real Housewives of Orange County? After being demoted to a part-time cast member for Season 14, Vicki did everything that she could to earn back her orange. She even became engaged to Steve Lodge.
But after a disastrous appearance at the RHOC reunion, the writing was on the wall. Vicki decided to quit when she and her bestie, Tamra Judge, were offered Friends of the Housewives positions for Season 15.
During the most recent episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice had a pool party. She is living her best single life, and even invited “pool boy” Tony Delorenzo.
Of course, the alcohol was flowing. And RHONJ co-star Jennifer Aydin told her husband, Bill Aydin, that she intended to cut loose. Jennifer got her hands on the tequila, and well, mission accomplished! It was concerning that Jennifer was so drunk that she gracefully slid down and landed with her face on the cement. Her husband carried Jennifer safely to his car.
All Tinsley Mortimer really ever talked about throughout her time on the Real Housewives of New York was her dream happily ever after. The husband, the kids, the house — she wanted it all and seemed to finally found it with Scott Kluth.
It seemed like the perfect reality TV love story — the two were introduced on the show by none other than Carole Radziwell. She ditched the show to move to Chicago to be with him and start her life. However, while Tinsley was more ready than ever, apparently Scott still wasn’t emotionally mature enough to settle down with a literal princess. And last week, he apparently dumped her for good. Ouch.
