Real Housewives Of New York is like being in city traffic and hearing a loud bang and not knowing where it came from and whether or not it’s a gun going off, a car backfiring, or Ramona Singer exploding in your face.
Luann de Lesseps is in full hoity-toity mode. Cabaret Star has replaced Countess as Luann’s new schtick, and she invited all the girls to a Halloween party where she’s performing. The theme is insane asylum – perfect for this group! Luann is dressed as a sexy nurse, but Bethenny Frankel comes as a slutty guardian angel, aka Luann’s savior. Was that shady or unintentional?
Luann’s performance is supposed to start at 11, but of course, the Countess is late, girls! After waiting around for 2 hours, when Luann couldn’t even come down to say hello, or invite them backstage to her dressing room, Bethenny leaves explaining that her babysitter is expecting her.
On tonight’s Real Housewives Of New York, some Housewives try to change their image by doing some good in the world for once! While others (Luann de Lesseps) are clinging onto their bad girl ways way, way past their expiration date!
Don’t cross the countess and her cabaret! When Luann learns that Bethenny Frankel bailed on her Cabaret-Halloween celebration, Luann makes another snarky comment about Bethenny’s friendship.
Nothing good ever happens in Palm Beach, Florida for Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps. First, she wed Tom D’Agostino there before the duo split up seven months later. The pair could never escape the roar of cheating allegations.
On December 24, 2017, during a disastrous trip back to the scene of the marital crime, the cabaret star was arrested for charges stemming from trespassing in a hotel room that wasn’t hers. Luann also happened to be in bed with an unidentified man. Wow! She was charged with disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, battery on an officer, and crimes against a person.
What would the Real Housewives of New York be without Sonja Morgan? No matter how rough the going gets between the ladies, Sonja is always ready with a little comedy, a little drama, and a little stirring of the pot. This season, we have witnessed Sonja have a booze-fueled Morgan Memories breakdown at Blue Stone Manor and also steal the show from Tinsley Mortimer at the Big Apple Circus. Sonja was even feted as the cover girl at a Paper Magazine party.
And it was at that same party that something a little unusual happened. OK-lets be honest-Sonja and practically everything about her is a “little unusual”-but at the party, a seemingly random woman came up and kissed her-passionately. And Sonja didn’t really seem to mind. A bit. Was this some overly enthusiastic fan? An attention-getting set-up by Ms. Morgan? We’ll probably never know. But we are now getting more of the details on Sonja’s real views about dipping into the lady pond. And they might surprise you.
Life may be a cabaret for Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps, but that may be leading her down the wrong path. Back in December of 2017, Luann was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida on charges of disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence, crimes against a person, and battery on an officer. Luann was found in someone else’s hotel room and refused to leave. This was her first time back in Palm Beach since her marriage to husband Tom D’Agostino. The duo called it quits after seven months, and tons of cheating allegations.
Then, Luann was sued by her two children and her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for violating a divorce agreement. The family’s home in Bridgehampton was sold for $8 million dollars. Luann purchased a house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million dollars. Luann was supposed to take half of the money from the Bridgehampton sale and create a trust for her children, Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps. Unfortunately, she never did.
Real Housewives of New York Season 11 has had a lot of Tinsley Mortimer-focused storylines. No one saw that coming. However, Tinsley’s mom Dale Mercer is doing whatever she can to
be on this season be there for her daughter. Dale has come up to New York City to “get her hair done” several times season.
She even has her own on-camera interviews. No one else’s relatives get that kind of shine on this show. At this point, it’s safe to expect a Dale appearance during the reunion. However, things just got very heavy during the last episode of RHONY. Dale shaded Tinsley whenever possible. To add insult to injury, she complimented Sonja Morgan a million times over. It all culminated in a tear-filled conversation at the end of the episode when Tinsley cried about her breakup with Scott Kluth. Meanwhile, Dale was less than warm in response.
Last night the Real Housewives Of New York went to the Big Apple Circus where Sonja Morgan lifted a random baby from the lap of the mother who was sitting behind her, and held it in her own lap so the child could get a better look at the action. That baby sat there stoically and dry-eyed as the adult women around her sloshed popcorn-essenced cocktails in her face and probably assumed the wetness on their dress was because the baby pooped herself. You know this child was forever changed, and all-knowing from this experience, and someday, many moons from now will be gracing some future Bravo network as a Real Housealien Of Spaceship Villa Uranus in the year 2075.
Especially because just as randomly this baby’s honorary temporary godmother Sonja Morgan, of the Sexy J performing acrobatics troupe, passed her back to her mother, and hiked up her sequined mini dress before vaulting over the dividing wall right into the center ring to join the clowns. It’s as if Sonja was born for this moment, and never has she felt more at home. To somersault in heels, pantomime, and ad-lib, and if Luann de Lesseps doesn’t incorporate The Sexy J random circus into her cabaret halftime show (sponsored by Dale Mercer, of course) than she’s a bigger fool than even I thought possible.
Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel’s life has been a crazy ride. Her contentious divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy was finalized in 2016. But the drama lives on as Bethenny and Jason battle over custody of their daughter, Bryn Hoppy. During the legal proceedings, we learned that Bethenny accused her ex of harassing her using Facetime. Sigh. Bethenny also dealt with some recent health scares, and nearly died because of her fish allergy.
The Skinnygirl mogul suffered the loss of her on-and-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields, in August of 2018. Dennis died of a suspected drug overdose. During Season 11 of RHONY, viewers have watched Bethenny grapple with her loss. Bethenny revealed to co-star Dorinda Medley that Dennis had proposed to her, and even gave a ring to Bryn. That is so sad! But Bethenny believes that Dennis is giving her signs from the afterlife that she should move on. Bethenny did just that, and her bestie Sonja Morgan couldn’t be happier for her!
