Triangles are the strongest shape in the world. That’s not the case when it comes to friendship. At the end of last season on the Real Housewives of New York, the friendship of Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley was reeling from some heavy, alcohol-laced hits. That meant Dorinda went from being the only cast member to be invited to Luann’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino—remember him?—to an enemy combatant. A frenemy who heckled Luann mercilessly during her cabaret show with cries of “Jovani.”
What is going on with the Housewives and their premiere parties lately? LVParrived at the Season 9 RHOBHpremiere party before anyone else and left before Kyle Richards could confront make amends with her. Perhaps Bravo should have the cameras rolling at these premiere parties to document all the juicy drama.
During the cabaret, Luann wore several Jovani gowns. Earlier in the season, Dorinda brought Luann to the Jovani showroom to check out dresses. Somehow that all melded together and Dorinda yelled out “Jovani” multiple times during Lu’s performance. But if you ask Dorinda, she insists, she was NOT heckling. Ummmm. What is her definition of heckling?
Last night begins with a continuation of Andy’s conversation with Teresa in which she admits that she won’t move her family to Italy if husband Joe Giudice is deported. She hedges around the word “divorce” but she won’t endure a long distance marriage. Her friends seem both shocked and sad at this admission. Tre explains that she and Joe have spoken about what will happen, and they agree that they should go their separate ways if he is no longer in the country. Teresa didn’t share this news with any of her friends, but Melissa isn’t surprised–she wants her sister-in-law to be happy, and she can’t imagine having to make that decision.
Andy also asks Teresa if she’s been faithful this whole time Joe has been in jail. Unfortunately (for the viewers), this was taped before those photos came out. You know the photos of Teresa holding hands with a much younger man. The guy that was supposedly just “helping her to the car” in Miami.
When it comes to new Housewives on their freshmen season, we often see them have a really rough first reunion. Sometimes, we see them come back for the next season, much better prepared. Other times, they just decide to throw in the towel and call it a day on the franchise.
It wouldn’t be easy to sit under the bright lights all day and answer questions from Andy Cohen. It would be even more difficult would to sit there as a brand new housewife getting attacked by some of the veterans. However, it appears that some new housewives are taking notes! Denise Richards joined the new season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and is off to an interesting start thanks to what she thought was a relaxed and casual Bahamas trip. Basically, sipping margaritas on the beach in shorts and your swimsuit, right? Not so fast, Denise.
NeNe Leakes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has been known for having some epic confrontations and for throwing a good ole theme party. In the last episode, NeNe threw a “Bye Wig” party and invited fellow cast mates to attend. The premise of the party was that the ladies would come to the party, free of their weaves and wigs. They let their natural hair (and their edges) run free.
And it’s not even the most scandalous crime, but it is definitely an embarrassing one. That’s for sure. So what did Cynthia Bailey’sex-husband get himself into this time? He wrote some counterfeit checks. Maybe it’s time for him to start making some more Real Housewives of Atlanta guest appearances.
