Time for the annual Real Housewives of New York Mexico trip! No idea why they always go to the same place, but it’ll be fun nonetheless. Trouble is afoot though after last week’s birthday disaster. Ramona Singer was NOT having Leah McSweeney’s dirty dancing at her birthday bash. She spent the entire episode dragging Leah for attire she deemed inappropriate. Who made Ramona the fashion police?
It seems like everyone is growing tired of Ramona being an awful person. This season may be the biggest example of her toxic behavior. The way she treats her longtime friends Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley is dreadful. Although, Dorinda hasn’t exactly been a saint this season. Her actions have crossed the line into bullying many times. The biggest villain of this season is alcohol. It makes them all so messy!
Last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York ended with a cliffhanger. Ramona Singer was yelling at production, threatening to leave the show because of how wild the cast got at her lame luncheon-style birthday party. (No, the party wasn’t actually at lunchtime, but it might as well have been.)
She took issue with Leah McSweeney for looking amazing when she walked into the party. Jealousy alert. She was miffed when some of the cast members didn’t comply with her party’s dress code. But, she really flipped out when the women started dancing and it was too raunchy for her high society friends.
Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel has a lot on her plate these days. She shocked RHONY fans when she abruptly decided to exit the show in August of 2019. There must be some hard feelings, because Bethenny allegedly threw a fit when a producer during Bravocon opined that the show didn’t need her to succeed. A furious Bethenny blocked that producer on social media.
Since then, Bethenny has been busy helping those impacted by the coronavirus. The Skinnygirl mogul delivered 1 million protective suits to New York and 50,000 suits to Louisiana. Bethenny’s BStrong foundation raised funds to aid 100 black-owned businesses impacted by Covid-19. Say what you will about Bethenny, but she really comes through to help those affected by disasters.
This has to be the most alcohol fueled season of The Real Housewives of New York ever. Hands down. We know these women love to drink, but this season is off the rails. Bethenny Frankel leaving the show did SOMETHING to this group. They’re totally insane. At first it looked like Leah McSweeney could be that force, but she’s fallen in line with the mess. Someone help these women!
Ramona’s birthday is front and center on this episode, and things look crazy! I cannot wait for her fourth wall breaking moment at the party. Apparently, she’s not fond of everyone’s out of control behavior. Normally I’d say Ramona is overreacting. However, this season it wouldn’t surprise me if they took things too far. After all, we wouldn’t want to embarrass Ramona in front of her fifty best girlfriends!
What could have been missing from the Real Housewives of New York seasonal trip to the Berkshires? It’s not over yet, but the RHONY ladies already had an explosive blowup, fueled by a copious amount of alcohol,
Luann de Lesseps massive ego, and Dorinda Medley’s unhinged behavior. Sonja Morgan was cheerfully tipsy until she brought up the lack of compensation for appearing in Luann’s cabaret. The evening went to hell quickly afterward.
Would the evening have ended differently if the guest list was altered? The perfect person would have long-standing relationships with most of the women, would be able to speak up to Dorinda, and would be desperate to get back on the show. That sounds like Jill Zarin. And two weeks ago, Jill was indignantly claiming that Dorinda had blocked her from participating in the cast trip. After seeing last week’s episode, did Jill really feel like she missed out on something?
It seems like our favorite housewives are making good use of their quarantine by “freshening up”. Chances are, if you’re following any of them on Instagram, you’ve seen their before and after photos.
Teresa Giudice posted a pic with her doctor about getting her veins done. Dorit Kemsley used the same Instagram posting formula about getting new teeth. And we just told you about Margaret Josephs’ doctor showing off her new facelift, amongst some other procedures.
Never a dull moment with the Real Housewives of New York ladies. They’ve picked it up after their recently low ratings. If you missed the latest episode, I highly recommend you stop what you’re doing immediately and get watching. Viewers saw the most recent fight between Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley escalate to new highs. Well, maybe not *so* new. Dorinda did recycle her drunk mugshot line and her Jovani ranting. But anyways. The argument was about whether or not Sonja Morgan should be paid for her time in Lu’s cabaret show. It turned into Lu sobbing while Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeny scoot her into a car to visit a pub. Friends forever!
The episode semi-resolved the issue when everyone woke up and basically admitted they had no idea what happened the night before. Now we’re getting Dorinda’s take after she’s gotten a chance to watch herself back. If you remember, she’s already said it’s been a tough year to watch. Sounds like this week was no exception.
Real Housewives of New York always delivers. In so many ways. The fighting, the laughs, Lady Sonja Morgan drunkenly falling off a chair at a dinner table. Even on the most boring of seasons, they seem to keep every entertained enough to continue watching. After all, what has really happened this season?
One thing we can point to is the dissolution of the friendship between Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine. It went downhill so quickly I wasn’t even exactly sure what happened. And Elyse has admitted to not knowing what happened either. We could speculate that maybe Ramona regretted bringing Elyse into the group as a friend of. Or maybe Ramona just can’t handle one more friend in her 60-person strong girl gang. That’s a lot of people to keep up with. But maybe Ramona should have kept Elyse on her good side.
