Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

It has been a hard knock life for Luann de Lesseps lately. No one will ever forget the Real Housewives of New York star’s arrest Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach.  A wild evening that resulted in charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person.  A one-woman game of thrones!

Luann also had legal troubles closer to home. Call it Game of Homes!  Luann was being sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for allegedly violating a divorce agreement and stealing from their children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps.  The suit arose from a sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton for $8 million dollars and the star’s purchase of a smaller house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million. As per the divorce decree, Luann was to set up a trust for the children funded from half of the Bridgehampton sale.  Apparently, she never did.  

Bethenny Frankel Dishes On OG Housewives; Says “I Really Feel For Them”

It’s not easy being a Real Housewife, and some of the “OG” Housewives have been through the wringer recently. Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has been dealing with her husband Gregg Leakes battle with colon cancer. She also evicted Kandi Burruss and a then-pregnant Porsha Williams from her closet. NeNe ripped a camera man’s shirt and may have pulled off Porsha’s belt during the incident. During the reunion, it came out that a producer was allegedly injured by NeNe. That’s a lot of drama over a closet. In the end, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia invited former peach-holder Kenya Moore to a product launch.

On Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, this season is all about “puppy gate” and how Dorit Kemsley’s pup from Vanderpump Dogs ended up in a shelter.  This saga has positioned Lisa Vanderpump against all her fellow Beverly Hills Housewives. On a personal level, Lisa has been struggling with the death of her brother. The epic show-down at Villa Rosa between Lisa, Lisa’s husband Ken Todd, and former bestie Kyle Richards was upsetting to watch.

Dorinda Medley - Real Housewives Of New York

Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York had it all: turtle time, flying trapezes, sexually harassing birds, meltdowns at premiere galas, breakups, brawls in the spa, makeups at the spa, ghosts of Sonja Morgan‘s past, and wrap dresses. You know, just an ordinary episode! (Seriously how is this one of the lower rated Housewives franchises?!)

Sonja is just strolling down the street with her coffee and her trendy patterned tights when a limousine window rolls down and a voice calls out from the dark, “Hey hooker…” Sonja doesn’t even flinch, she just keeps doing her Mary Tyler Moore strut with a distracted smile until the voice gets more persistent. But it’s just Bethenny Frankel! Sonja laughs because she assumed it was one if the regular people who call her a hooker during her morning coffee run! Where is Sonja getting her coffee from?

Luann de Lesseps

Tinsley Mortimer is one of those Housewives who tends to fly under the radar. The Real Housewives of New York star generally doesn’t stir up a lot of drama and for the most part she is not really the target of the other ladies. Sometimes, you get the sense that she is holding back the real Tinsley. Who is this elegant socialite that appears to have it all, but also seems to have more depth than would appear on the surface?

We know that Tinsley lives in a hotel, loves lacey dresses and was once the star socialite of the New York City society world. She has also shared her sometimes difficult past, including an arrest and a divorce, as well as her longing for a baby. This week we learned more about Tinsley’s father, his drinking and his sad accidental death. Tinsley admits to having unresolved feelings about her father and none other than the Countess Luann de Lesseps played counselor to her.

Tinsley Mortimer - Real Housewives Of New York

The Real Housewives Of New York never fail to disappoint! They cycle through emotions faster than teenage girls, even though they’re all, for the most part, menopausal women.

We open in the Berkshires where Sonja Morgan is having a meltdown over Dorinda Medley touching the sacred MOOOOOORGAN LETTERS, which really should be under plexiglass like the Guggenheim Bible and the first thong Sonja ever washed in her bidet. “She didn’t desecrate them!” Ramona Singer yells in an attempt to calm Sonja down, but Bethenny Frankel is the expert in psychotic breaks.

Bethenny has a lifetime of experience, after all, so she ushers Sonja out of the room, grabs her face, and performs an exorcism. I also think Bethenny must have hypnotized Sonja with one the 32 diamond rings she’s wearing, because from that moment forward Sonja became obsessed with The B. Back at the table, Sonja is ready to resume partying. Everything’s fine!

Dorinda Medley

Dorinda Medley tried to make Bluestone Manor scary but “nice” for Halloween on the Real Housewives of New York.  That ranged from peeping vampires, a Morgan mansion tour and a naked chef. Much to Dorinda’s annoyance, her costars thought sleeping in the fish room was the scariest thing about the manor.  

The room assignment passed around like a hot potato. Ultimately, newcomer Barbara Kavovit was left holding it.  The second scariest part was Sonja Morgan’s drunken meltdown at dinner, which was provoked by Dorinda manhandling some Morgan artifacts during their visit to Ventfort Hall.

Sonja Morgan

As an avid Real Housewives of New York fan, I live for the annual trip to the “Bezerkshires.” Dorinda Medley made Bluestone Manor “nice” for Halloween with crazy and gory decorations, including a peeping vampire. Dorinda booked massages and yoga to please Luann de Lesseps. Dorinda dealt with Bethenny Frankel insisting on having the best room in the house. She endured her guests fighting over who had the pleasure misfortune of staying in Dorinda’s expensive fish room, where you literally sleep with the taxidermy fishes. After much squabbling, that honor went to RHONY newbie Barbara Kavovit.

And then, Dorinda brought Sonja Morgan to see a historic Morgan house in the area, which elicited a strong reaction from Sonja. Sonja did not approve of how the historic Morgan papers there were treated.  Peasants people are able to touch the actual letters. Once again, poor Dorinda tried to do something nice in the Berkshires, and everything went up in flames. Later that night, a drunken Sonja hit on bestie Bethenny, and had a sobbing meltdown about the Morgan papers. In fact, Sonja screamed, “You don’t touch the f***ing Morgan letters!”

Bethenny Frankel Says Kyle Richards & Lisa Rinna Had Nothing To Do With Planting Story About Lisa Vanderpump & Dorit Kemsley Dog Adoption Drama

This puppygate storyline on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has infiltrated many Bravo shows. Well, not the shows themselves, but the cast members have shared their opinions. Vanderpump Rules stars Stassi Schroeder and Lala Kent shared their opinions on who is at fault. Their costar Scheana Marie even said that she has empathy for Kyle Richards following that fight with Lisa Vanderpump at Villa Rosa. Kyle blamed Lisa for leaking the story about Dorit Kemsley’s failed dog adoption. In

Shahs of Sunset star Mercedes “MJ” Javid went public with her stance on the storyline. She is a very avid member of Team Vanderpump. Now, Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel is sharing her two cents, which is very interesting since she has been friends with Kyle and Lisa Rinna for decades.
