I feel like I stayed longer at Real Housewives of New York cast events than Ramona Singer did this past season. She always left early to go on a date. Is it in the cast contracts to stay at events for a minimal amount of time? It really seemed like Ramona stayed as long as she “had” to before peacing out immediately.
Weirdly, most of her dates aren’t even filmed, yet we always hear about how she’s going on so many. Sometimes, I think she just says she’s going on dates so she can sneak back home to hang out with her dog CoCo. She only has one year left to live, you guys. Or at least that’s what Ramona has been saying…based on nothing at all, which (weirdly) makes me laugh every time she mentions it.
There’s just something so special about Real Housewives from different shows coming together no matter what the reason is. Whether it’s a joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live, an Instagram photo together, or some other event, it’s just always fun to see Real Housewives interacting.
Recently, Melissa Gorga, Sonja Morgan, and Porsha Williams collaborated on a song about something they know well: gettting work done. They even filmed a music video for the track, which included funny appearances from Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge.
Tinsley Mortimer admits to feeling like the “kid sister” on the Real Housewives of New York. Tinsley’s age can’t be solely to blame though, she just really needs guidance on a regular basis. Any life decisions, monumental plans, or changes reduce Tinsley to a stuttering, deflecting mess. The only thing Tinsley seems to continuously have in place are her eyelashes.
And while the rest of the cast can’t seem to make sense of her plans for the future, everyone knows about Tinsley’s past. In true Sonja Morgan style, Tinsley seems to be stuck in the shadow of her ex-husband’s name. She has a hard time talking about her future without dredging up her past marriage to Topper Mortimer.
No one can deny that Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York has centered around Luann de Lesseps. She is still dealing with the aftershocks of her December 2017 arrest in Palm Beach, Florida. Luann was arrested for resisting arrest with violence, battery on an officer, and disorderly intoxication.
Luann violated her probation by drinking, and ultimately obtained a new plea deal in May. This deal comes with some extra restrictions. Apparently, having a busy cabaret schedule isn’t an excuse for blowing off probation. Luann landed in rehab for a second time.
On her way to becoming a celebrated cabaret performer, Luann de Lesseps hit a few bumps in the road. And luckily the Real Housewives of New York cameras have documented all the drama. One of those bumps was marrying, and then divorcing, Tom D’Agostino after seven months of wedded
warfare bliss. Luann was arrested in Palm Beach in December of 2017 for charges including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence. She swiftly entered rehab.
But Luann violated the terms of her probation by drinking, and later agreed to a new plea deal in May of 2019. She was also sued by her ex-husband and her two children for violating the terms of her divorce agreement.
Well, it is with great sadness that I announce Real Housewives Of New York season 11 has come to an end. I am so thankful god has granted these women the serenity to accept that they WILL NOT change and will forever remain the lovable, dysfunctional, bizarro world kooks we have come to adore.
For all the drama and insults they inflict upon each Real Housewives Of New York is unlike any other franchise in their ability to brush it off, chalk it up to experience, and come back together as more than friends, but family. After so many years knowing each other on and off Bravo, this show is also unique in that most of the relationships predate the show, and will outlast it too.
Unequivocably the major subject of this reunion (and so many others) has been Luann de Lesseps. No wonder Luann has such a huge ego! It’s impossible for me to comprehend that there was a time when Lu was a ‘Friend of…’ and I’m very curious to see how that will play out with Vicki Gunvalson on Real Housewives Of Orange County (which starts next week. WOOT!)
Tonight season 11 of Real Housewives Of New York concludes with part 3 of the reunion. Unlike most Real Housewives franchises I’m always sad to see RHONY go. Even when Barbara Kavovit takes the stage!
That’s right, tonight Barbara finally gets her moment in the sun and she has the endless tan to prove it. Seriously Barbara shows up on stage looking more orange than a New Jersey housewife headed for the shore for the first time all season!
Barbara is also there to discuss her struggle to get along with the group and her friendship with Luann de Lesseps, who made Barbara feel like a second-class friend. Probably the second the cameras started rolling!
When Carole Radiziwill left Real Housewives of New York, it was on the heels of her sour feud with former bestie Bethenny Frankel. The two found zero resolution during the Season 10 reunion and even Andy Cohen got caught in the crossfire.
When Andy declared that Bethenny and Carole “bashed each other on the show,” but Carole strongly disagreed. She even had the nerve to remark, “You’re so full of sh*t, Andy.” She also declared, “I didn’t bash her on the show.” Did she not watch the show that season? Not only does she not regret that comment, but she’s actually doubling down and calling him out. Again.
