The theme for this year’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion is neutral palettes and open hatred – a perfect fit for an occasion featuring this powerhouse cast of women. And last night, the ladies of NYC all lined up one by one to call each other on the carpet. But let’s be real, the TRUE theme of season 10 is pretty much “who-said-what-in-a-blog-about-whom,” and it’s not going to be long before Carole Radziwill will finally have to back her written words up with verbal sparring. Bethenny Frankel, everyone’s prime target, is ready. And last night’s Reunion, Part One, was just a warm-up.
Despite the bad behavior to come, let’s pay homage to how fantastic (with some slight misses) this cast’s entire reunion look is. In particular, I’m obsessed with Sonja By Sonja Morgan $149 frock, which kind of boggles my mind. After Andy Cohen addresses the absence of Luann de Lesseps, he tosses out some softball questions. Bethenny is still happy in her apartment, Ramona Singer just put her NYC pad on the market, Carole gives us an update on Adam – which still makes zero sense – and Tinsley Mortimer’s big news is…a haircut. Yes, this is the equivalent of a storyline for Tinsley.
According to Bravo’s summary of tonight’s reunion episode, “The women also pay tribute to Bobby Zarin while questioning Bethenny’s motives for attending his funeral. Dorinda confronts questions about her biting tongue, and Bethenny defends herself when a few of the others gang up on her. Finally, everyone gets a lesson in graciousness from Dorinda, and they take a look back at some of their questionable wardrobe choices.”
Happy Friday! Let’s see what our favorite reality stars have been up to this week in an all-new photo roundup! First up, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill attended Bronwen Smith of B Floral’s “Circus Soiree” at the Southampton Social Club last night in Southampton, New York. Our writer, Marenah, was there and said it was a really fun night – see her pic below, too!
We also have some of the Dancing with the Stars pros attending the 2018 Industry Dance Awards. Peta Murgatroyd and Maksim Chmerkovskiy hit the red carpet alongside Julianne Hough, Val Chmerkovskiy, Sharna Burgess and more.
Check out these and more reality star sightings – including former RHONY star Aviva Drescher – in the gallery!
Ramona Singer is trying to be supportive of Luann de Lesseps‘ sobriety in the only way she knows how: by questioning it to the press and asserting her own opinions about how Luann should handle recovery. Of course, given how well Luann’s sobriety went after her first stint in rehab, maybe Ramona has a point?
The Real Housewives Of New York star recently revealed that prior to re-entering treatment this July she relapsed with watermelon martinis, 2 whole bottles of rose, followed by a six-pack of beer. By. Her.Self. Luann reveals that being sued by her ex and children over her desire to move upstate for “a fresh start” promulgated her fall off the wagon. “I felt betrayed,” she told Megyn Kelly in an interview. “I had my heart set on that house. … I was devastated, and so I lost it.”
It was only a matter of time before Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy used Dennis Shields’ death against her. Considering that he just passed away on Friday August 10 and the funeral was on Monday August 13, Jason made this effort at lightning speed.
Jason is questioning Bethenny’s judgment as a parent in response to Dennis’ untimely passing. He’s also using a Real Housewives of New York episode to build his case. This is just beyond cringeworthy.
