Why have the Real Housewives amassed such a following? The drama? The feuds? How about stepping into the elite world of the super rich? No matter where the location, people love to see expensive homes, vacations, and shopping. Do we really care how it is financed?
On the Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley have questioned Tinsley Mortimer’s spending habits. Of course, she comes from family money, but after seeing Scott Kluth shower her with gifts, the ladies are wondering if there is a special someone behind the scenes buying new frilly dresses. Tinsley claims that she is paying for her own wardrobe. Sonja insists that she doesn’t have the money.
The Real Housewives of New York’s Tinsley Mortimer is one of the few Housewives who doesn’t purposely create drama with the other ladies. Sure, Tinsley participates in a little pot stirring when induced by her co-stars, but the drama she creates is usually centered around her own life. Tinsley must not have watched previous episodes before joining the cast three seasons ago–the other women are meant to be the targets-not yourself, Tinsley! Haven’t Ramona Singer or Bethenny Frankel taught you anything?
Tinsley’s self-inflicted drama is usually about her personal life. She has been very open about her desire to start a family, believing her biological time clock is on high alert due to her age. Tinsley is also famous for breaking up and making up with on-again, off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. Her castmates and advice happy mother Dale Mercer have all told her to move on from Scott and it looks like Tinsley might finally be listening.
In a world full of eccentric Housewives, the Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan would be at the top of the unconventional list for her oddities. From living in a crumbling townhouse to “accidentally” flashing the audience at Luann de Lesseps’ cabaret show, Sonja is an idiosyncratic character who prides herself on her peculiarities. Nothing appears to be off the table for Lady Morgan.
Always the clown, Sonja is usually willing to do anything to draw attention to herself. Often fueled by generous amounts of alcohol. Or the desire for more screen time. You have to wonder, does Sonja have any limits on what she is willing to do–or share on the show? Maybe not, as she and her co-stars recently dished on two of her strangest habits.
Oh, they’ve descended upon the sunshine state again… Shouldn’t Florida have an ordinance keeping the Real Housewives Of New York out?!
In cold New York city Ramona Singer has convinced everyone that vacationing in a fabulous Miami mansion will be just the thing to unify the group after Upstate. Round houses have a way of backing everyone into their own corners. Also Luann de Lesseps is spinning on an axis around her own sun, orbiting her own ego, and declaring that she’s not a diva at. all, so maybe a return to Florida will put things in humbling perspective for her!
The Real Housewives of New York cast recently sat down with Andy Cohen to film the Season 11 reunion. Of course, the set was standard: Andy in the middle with one couch on each side of him.
However, it could easily be Luann de Lesseps on a barstool across from a giant sofa filled with the rest of the cast. Well, minus the segment that her girl Barbara Kavovit filmed. Barbara is a very loyal Luann apologist.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer has been very vocal about her desire to become a mother. Who could ever forget Tinsley trying on wedding dresses with her mother Dale Mercer and FaceTiming her frozen eggs?
Tinsley hoped that she would get the family of her dreams… until she and Scott Kluth broke up. Now, her costars and her mom are putting the pressure on her to make decisions if she wants to have a biological child.
The mama-bear in Bethenny Frankel was definitely triggered when Luann de Lesseps questioned her reasons for leaving the Halloween night performance early. Of course, the show was running a half hour late, but regardless. The Countess delivered somewhat of an apology but the other Real Housewives of New York, including Bethenny, are questioning the sincerity of it.
It’s a bit ironic to be questioning Bethenny’s parenting given Luann’s legal issues with her own grown children. And many seasons ago, Luann’s son Noel de Lesseps was begging her to spend more time with him. That was back when she was really a Countess, but just as self-absorbed.
No one’s personal life is off limits when it comes to Real Housewives of New York. Significant others can become a storyline whether they are on camera or not. Like that unfortunate business of Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth. The car he sent over from Chicago spent more time onscreen than its owner. Yet Scott’s name was on everybody’s lips for quite a while.
Dive back far enough into the show’s history and you might stumble upon speculations that Luann de Lesseps had an open marriage with the Count. Bethenny’s Frankel’s relationships may have had gray areas and some castmates were quick to pass judgment.
