If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Yes, we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New York cast travel to Mexico a million times at this point, but to quote Sonja Morgan, “We always have the best time.” Seriously though. The viewers enjoy it, the cast goes all out, and in all honesty, the other Real Housewives shows should take notes. This cast always delivers.
Yes, it would be great to switch up the RHONY cast trip locations, but the ladies always pull through in Mexico. Who could forget Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into that bush? What about Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s naked heart to heart in the pool? There have been so many classic RHONY moments south of the border. I am sure there will be even more iconic scenes from the Season 12 Mexico trip.
It seems like Luann de Lesseps life is on the upswing. Her life is cabaret-based, as Real House of New York viewers
cannot escape know. Luann has been “on display” (shout out to RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga) and has been enjoying soaking up the limelight.
This cabaret queen has had a tough couple of years. Luann completed her probation following her arrest on Dec. 24, 2017 in Palm Beach. The RHONY star was charged with several counts, including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence.
Even though I like Kristen Taekman, she didn’t exactly make her mark on Real Housewives of New York. Other than facing Ramona Singer’s wrath for getting her hair wet, Kristen was just, well, there. In all honesty, she was just too normal for reality TV.
I thought things might get interesting when her husband Josh Taekman was implicated in the Ashley Madison scandal. In case anyone forgot, Ashley Madison is a dating site for people looking to have affairs. Josh was a member of that website. That news broke right after Kristen wrapped up her final season. I thought it was enough for her to get another season, but she moved on. Or she was fired. I have no idea.
Well, she actually could have returned to the show last season. Apparently, Bethenny Frankel asked Kristen to film. Who had any idea that these two were friends? I didn’t, but I would have loved to see if Kristen could make a bigger impact the second time around. Plus, she would be a way better “Friend of the Housewives” than Barbara Kavovit was. The RHONY ladies just didn’t give Barbara a chance.. and neither did the viewers.
Last season, for better or worse, Real Housewives of New York was anchored around Luann de Lesseps. Everyone else was a supporting player to the cabaret queen’s antics. Even fellow “OG” Bethenny Frankel, who announced she was
done with cabaret leaving the show, had a melt-down about Luann’s ego and cabaret career.
While the other New York ladies were eager to ditch Luann’s holiday cabaret show, long-time friend and newbie Housewife Barbara Kavovit attended. Unfortunately for her, she made some comments that were caught on a live mic. #rookiemistake.
Most people celebrated Thanksgiving with their families and significant others. But, get ready for this one: Kenya Moore and her daughter Brooklyn Daly went over to Sheree Whitfield’s house. Yes, you read that correctly. They left Moore Manor for Chateau Sheree. Is this Sheree’s way of trying to weasel her way back onto Real Housewives of Atlanta? If so, I am all for it. I don’t understand why they let her go in the first place. She filmed all of those collect calls with her prison boo and she knows how to read a foe to filth. The campaign for Sheree’s comeback starts now. Or at least it does in my eyes. I just want to know where Marc Daly spent Thanksgiving.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer used Thanksgiving as an opportunity to show off the $300K engagement ring Scott Kluth gave her on social media.
The Real Housewives Of New York & The Real Housewives Of New Jersey are both iconic shows. Nobody can argue that. Regardless of which one put Housewives on the map, they’re both incredible. Once in a while, Housewives offer opinions and comments about their franchise counterparts. It may not be a full crossover, but just knowing they watch each other’s shows is GOLD.
Bethenny Frankel is such an opinionated person who’s never afraid to speak her mind. She never passes up an opportunity to throw a jab or give a blunt remark. It’s both endearing and intimidating. Unfortunately for Jennifer Aydin, she’s the latest person on the receiving end. Watch out Jen. Jennifer may consider herself hilarious, but Bethenny isn’t convinced. What Bethenny had to say about her might sting more than her precious tequila!
Jill Zarin has a complicated history with Real Housewives of New York. She was one of the original Housewives until she was fired after Season 4. Since then, Jill has been on a relentless campaign to grab a full-time New York Housewives apple. So far, no luck.
The RHONY alum even invited the current Housewives to film at her birthday party, but they didn’t want to attend. Poor Jill! That is sad.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Adrienne Maloof was on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Mega-rich and formerly married to Dr. Paul Nassif, Adrienne lived across the street from another departed Beverly Hills castmate, Lisa Vanderpump. While on the show, fans watched Paul and Adrienne navigate their marriage through a series of thinly veiled insults and exasperated eye rolls. It was a surprise to no one when the couple eventually divorced.
In 2013, Adrienne either quit or got fired from RHOBH. If you ask Adrienne, she left because of Brandi Glanville. Brandi spilled some sacred beans regarding the birth of Adrienne’s children. Instead of arranging Brandi’s “disappearance”, Adrienne made herself disappear, which enraged
Big Daddy Andy Cohen. When Adrienne bailed on a reunion taping, Andy famously bailed on Adrienne. But she has gone onto bigger and better things. Over the years, Adrienne has lent her name to various charities and philanthropic efforts. Now she is tackling a worthy cause that puts fear into any parent sending their child to get an education. Adrienne is going after guns in our schools. Hell yes, let’s see what she can do.
