That’s what she claimed earlier today.
Real Housewives of New York
Tinsley Mortimer has a way of avoiding conflict simply by being overshadowed by the other women on Real Housewives of New York. Sonja Morgan was the only gal who had a real issue with her. And that stemmed from the fact that she was hosting Tinsley in her home for many months. Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley are the feuding ladies du jour. Ramona Singer, Bethenny Frankel, and Barbara Kavovit are simply taking sides.
Anyone can see Tinsley is living her life in a suspended adolescence. So, maybe it doesn’t seem like a fair fight to involve her in anything. But also, she doesn’t seek out conflict or show emotions in conflict situations. Sure there’s the occasional screeching about frozen eggs, her dog Bambi, or a one Scott Kluth at the door, but does Tinsley have strong opinions about the group dynamics? Why yes, actually. Especially when it comes to defending Dorinda.
My only issue with the Real Housewives franchise is that it didn’t start sooner. Of course, I understand that the premise of the show is related to the women being at a specific place in their lives. Nevertheless, it sounds like they lived some super fabulous lives during their pre-reality TV days.
If only reality television existed back in the day to see the younger Real Housewives. They probably went to some amazing parties and dated some famous people. Well, not all of them. However, one of the Real Housewives dated tennis great John McEnroe many years ago.
Can you believe that the Real Housewives of New York are in their eleventh season? Four weeks in, and the ladies are not disappointing. It is always great to catch up for the first few weeks and see what everyone has been up to. From Bethenny Frankel’s grief over the loss of Dennis Shields to Luann de Lesseps’ legal woes and second stint in rehab, the New York ladies are doing what they arguably do better than any other franchise-keeping it real, dramatic-and funny.
And that sometimes painful realness is extending to the continuing drama between former BFF’s Luann and Dorinda Medley. An ugly falling out in Cartagena followed by some obnoxious heckling (Jovani, Jovani, Jovani!) by Dorinda at Luann’s cabaret show have left the two at odds. Now, however, Luann is sharing that she might have been a little hasty in her part in having Dorinda excluded from the clam bake at Barbara Kavovit’s home.
Oh, I love Real Housewives Of New York! From Tinsley Mortimer slipping into Southern Sorority mode and using the word “hoebag,” to Dorinda Medley accusing Barbara Kavovit of drinking so much of Luann de Lesseps‘ unspiked Kool-Aid she has Type-2 Diabetes, to Ramona Singer getting lectured on being judgmental from the date from hell and just gulping her wine in response. This show is the pinnacle. Take note, Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills!
We left, and open on a cliff-hanger: will Dorinda and Luann make amends? Aided by Bethenny Frankel, at the Paper Magazine party, Luann saunters over. Clearly she’s expecting Dorinda to bow at her feet, cry, and vow to never utter the dreaded word “Jovani” again.
Tonight Real Housewives of New York is back to yell, scream, and cry over Jovani. Then hopefully – finally – Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley can settle their differences about who heckled whom over cabaret. I mean honestly someone just make a Broadway show about Real Housewives and be done with it!
Sonja Morgan is embracing her inner free spirit to celebrate her Paper Magazine spread by spreading the love around and making out with an unknown female party guest, while Tinsley Mortimer looks on in shock. Tinsley will spend a lot of this episode scoffing about bad manners because she also finds out her mother Dale is being disloyal by wearing shoes designed by Tinsley’s ex-husband’s new wife.
To say that Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel has had a rough time lately would be an understatement. Her on-and-off love Dennis Shields died from a suspected drug overdose in August of 2018. Fans of RHONY recently saw Bethenny confide in her co-stars that Dennis had proposed. He even gave her daughter, Bryn Hoppy, a ring before his untimely death. That is so sad!
Then came the health scares. Bethenny experienced a severe allergic reaction to fish, which landed her in the ICU. In fact, Bethenny’s new man, Paul Bernon, is credited with saving her life. She was also recently diagnosed with “leaky gut syndrome.”
