Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Life is a cabaret. Or at least that’s what Luann de Lesseps thinks. The first two episodes of Real Housewives of New York Season 11 have centered around two of her major feuds. Luann wants nothing to do with Dorinda Medley since the Jovani heckling.

And, then there’s Ramona Singer, who Luann is on bad terms with every other season. It’s tradition at this point. This time around, Lu has a lot of support. At this point in the season, she has Bethenny Frankel and the new girl Barbara Kavovit as her post-rehab ride or dies. Barbara even went so far as to disinvite Ramona and Dorinda from her party just to make sure Luann was comfortable. She may not be a full-time cast member, but she is proving herself to be a loyal soldier friend to Luann!

Andy Cohen St. Patrick's Day

No one loves a themed event as much as a reality TV star does. And, of course, St. Patrick’s Day is no different.

There were plenty of reality TV stars that dressed up for the holiday and shared photos with their social media followers.

Tinsley Mortimer Says Barbara Kavovit Is Doing Luann De Lesseps’ “Dirty Work;” Dorinda Should Be Upset About Clambake

Real Housewives of New York is back for Season 11, and I am here for the drama! The ladies kicked off the season in the Hamptons, where we learned that the Housewives are divided into two teams: the blondes (led by Ramona Singer) and the brunettes (helmed by Luann De Lesseps). The exception is Sonja Morgan, who floats between the two camps.

Tinsley Mortimer, of course, is still looking for love. She split from on-and-off boyfriend Scott Kluth. Again. During Season 9 of RHONY, Tinsley was introduced to the Chicago businessman by Housewives alum  Carole Radziwell. This socialite is on a mission to obtain an engagement ring. Tinsley is not stopping until she gets one. Hopefully, she can avoid the temptation of trying on wedding dresses again before she has a commitment. That was just awkward.

Dorinda Medley - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

The new season of Real Housewives Of New York is rife with unresolved drama from the last finale.  We are only two episodes in, but the battle lines have been drawn.  And we’re back to blondes versus brunettes.  Surely it’s only practical that the ladies at the center of current feud are holding court in two different houses.  Bethenny Frankel and newbie Barbara Kavovit are sheltering Luann De Lesseps, while Ramona Singer hosts Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer.

As of what fans just saw, there is no reconciliation on the horizon for Luann and Dorinda.  But Dorinda, joined by Ramona, interviewed with PEOPLE Now last week and revealed that their relationship has done a 180 since filming the start of the season.

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Last night the Real Housewives Of New York dragged all their dysfunction to the Hamptons where they split into two teams: Team Ramona Singer & Team Luann de Lesseps. Just like the old days… Usually Sonja Morgan likes being in the middle of some sweaty, howling, grunting, insane situations, and this time was no exception!

Sonja arrives at Ramona’s house after being driven by Tinsley Mortimer. After all Tinsley’s whining that she might crash before she even gets into the driver’s seat, she turned out to be a good driver. Which, according to Sonja, also naturally means Tinsley will be a good mother. Because… ?

For some reason Sonja has long extensions – from a photoshoot maybe. They look so ratty I assume she found them in a box in a the Townhouse basement labeled JP – Mother’s Victorian Wigs. Anyway, this inspires Dorinda Medley to whip out the mermaid costumes she brought so they all can do something besides eat, drink, go to restaurants and fight. Dorinda believes their mermaid photos will “go viral.” Which is usually what they’re saying about Sonja’s vagina.

Barbara Kavovit Tries To Disinvite Dorinda Medley From Her Clambake On Real Housewives Of New York Tonight

Thanks to her second stint in rehab, Luann de Lesseps missed the Real Housewives of New York Season 10 reunion. This means that she never got to hash out the Jovani incident with Dorinda Medley. Consequently, they are dragging this out into Season 11.

At this point, the cast has split up into two groups: the blondes and the brunettes. Luann, Bethenny Frankel, and new girl Barbara Kavovit are aligned getting along for now. And then, there’s Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, and Tinsley Mortimer. In the middle, is Sonja Morgan, who seems to be on good terms with both sides.

Dorinda Medley Says She Thought Relationship With Luann De Lesseps Was “In A Better Place;” Bethenny Frankel’s Suffering “Breaks My Heart”

Real Housewives of New York is back, and Season 11 looks amazing so far! Faster than you can yell “Jovani” at a cabaret show, the continuing turmoil between Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps was brought to the forefront. After all, Luann did not take kindly to Dorinda’s drunken heckling enthusiastic support during her cabaret performance.

Of course, we all know it wasn’t about the Jovani. Instead, it was about Luann failing to invite Dorinda’s man, John Mahdessian to the big show. Dorinda’s blood was boiling once Tinsley Mortimer spilled the beans that Luann had invited her boyfriend, Scott Kluth, the day of the performance. Now that is some questionable etiquette, Countess.

RHONY-Dorinda-Medley

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.”

The Season 11 premiere of RHONY proved those wounds are still fresh. And the addition of  Barbara Kavovit’s as a Friend of the Housewives is just adding salt to those wounds. And, apparently, creating a toxic friendship triangle. Barbara also attended that cursed wedding. Even after she was picked up on former Real Housewives cast member Carole Radziwill’s microphone predicting that Luann would “rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off.”
