Anchors aweigh, JL saves the day! Who knew our boy Jean-Luc Cerza Lanaux had it in him? And who knew Gary King would trust his junior deckhand with such a dangerous, potentially deadly task? (Especially one that could lead to a terrifying watery grave.) On second thought, maybe it makes sense that Gary would put JL in that position rather than risk himself. But either way, the deckhand came through in a crisis. But as always, I’m getting ahead of myself…
At the end of last week’s Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Jean-Luc was not exactly getting a heroic edit. Far from it, in fact. With the charter guests roasting atop an ancient Croatian castle, he couldn’t be bothered to stop eating dinner and bring them a few bottles of water. Instead, Gary had to rush down from the highest tower and do JL’s job for him. Before the deckhand could even find the cooler bag, Gary had made it to Parsifal and back, bragging to Daisy Kelliher that he knew he’d do the job quicker than JL.
Holla! There’s a new season of The Real Housewives of New York City around the corner! This season, fans can expect a blast from the past. Heather “Hey Mamma” Thomson will be making guest appearances throughout. It’s been a while since she filmed in any relevant capacity, but she did make a one night appearance last year. A lot has changed since Heather was last on the show, and one of those things is the addition of Leah McSweeney to the cast.
Leah came on last season to “elevate this s**t” and created quite the buzz. However, the positive buzz has been fading, and fading fast. Caught in the middle of the alleged feud between Heather & Leah are Ramona Singer & Luann de Lesseps. They have experience filming with both women, so getting their take on it is a much needed dose of tea. It makes their recent comments all that more interesting.
We’re less than a week away from a brand new season of the Real Housewives of New York and the excitement cannot be contained. Eboni K. Williams will be joining the ladies as the first Black RHONY housewife, and she’s coming in hot. From her already amazing tagline to the upcoming feud with Ramona Singer as seen in the Season 13 trailer, it seems like Eboni is prepping for quite the grand entrance.
Ramona is currently in Turks and Caicos filming a Real Housewives All-Stars vacation series with women from other shows. And still finding time to throw shade at Bethenny Frankel. While it’s unclear if Ramona will yet again be shocked by a surprise appearance of Jill Zarin on a vacation, she’s definitely probably feuding with the ladies over a room situation. And rumor has it she’s already fighting with Kenya Moore, but is anyone really surprised?
There are a lot of changes coming up for Season 13 of Real Housewives of New York. Tinsley Mortimer left the show during last season to move to Chicago to be with her boyfriend, Scott Kluth. Scott announced in March of 2021 that he ended his engagement to Tinsley. Tinsley won’t be back this season, but Eboni K. Williams is joining as the franchise’s first Black Housewife. I am excited!
RHONY also bid farewell to Dorinda Medley, who announced that she was leaving in August of 2020. Dorinda and Ramona Singer argued a lot during Season 12, but that is nothing new. There were rumors that Dorinda was actually fired because of her angry outbursts. I must admit that I am going to miss Dorinda “making it nice” at her home in the Bezerkshires.
It’s undeniable that Bethenny Frankel is one of the biggest success stories to come out of the Real Housewives of New York, or any city for that matter. She started off the show peddling her SkinnyGirl products in grocery stores and now she’s a boss businesswoman doing a million things at once.
You have to give credit where credit is due — Bravo definitely has some responsibility in “making” B who she is today. The show gave her a platform. She commanded that platform in an intelligent way, but it was truly her RHONY performance that made her such a hit. From screaming at Kelly Bensimon at Scary Island to fighting with Ramona Singer on the Brooklyn Bridge, B’s iconic housewives scenes definitely didn’t hurt her various businesses.
This is it folks! The last regular episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta has arrived. The season started out rockier than ever, but things have picked up in a big way lately. Somebody pray for LaToya Ali because according to Drew Sidora, she has committed the ultimate sin. She’s openly accusing her of sleeping with Prophet Lott. Why is whatever relationship they may or may not have any of her business? Make it make sense.
If LaToya really is dipping into the pond of divinity like Drew claims, so what? Why is she being extra extra and cancelling her baby’s blessing ceremony? She’s doing the most, and it screams desperate and thirsty. LaToya isn’t anyone’s favorite cup of tea, but come on now. What she chooses to do and whom she chooses to do it with isn’t any of her business. Drew didn’t like Kenya Moore investigating StripperGate, so why is she doing this? Hmm.
Even though Carole Radziwill’s time on the Real Housewives of New York is long gone, she never shies away from a moment to share her opinion. But hey, she’s a writer girl, it’s in her blood. She’s flamed her ex-BFF Bethenny Frankel, shaded Tinsley Mortimer and said everyone on the cast was fake besides Dorinda Medley. Oh, and accused them of doing hard drugs on the show. For someone who is over being on Bravo, she sure talks about reality TV a lot.
And yesterday Carole decided to insert herself into some reality TV news that literally has absolutely nothing to do with her. Bachelor alum Colton Underwood came out as gay this week after appearing on the ABC dating show. He said he came to terms with his sexuality earlier this year and has been processing it.
