Nevertheless, the right addition could really be a good thing for the show. For instance, Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley joined the show later on and completely changed the landscape when they did. Even though RHONY Season 11 is still airing, there is already gossip about the cast for next year. No, they aren’t bringing back any alums. Sorry, Jill Zarin. However, there is a familiar (last) name in the mix: Scaramucci. Former Trump staffer and Celebrity Big Brother cast member Anthony Scaramucci’s wife Deidre Scaramucci is interested in joining the show.
*sigh* So many thoughts about last night’s episode of Real Housewives Of New York. SO. MANY. THOUGHTS. And even more questions!
Does Luann de Lesseps deserve the wrath of hungover Housewives? Does air conditioner make Sonja Morgan poof or poop? Does Bethenny Frankel see Luann as her human sounding board – the one person resilient enough to take all the tantrums Bethenny’s mother ignored as she headed out to the clubs or on a date; giving Bethenny free-reign to project all of her childhood emotions.
Also, it occurs to me, that Bethenny probably married her mother and her father in Jason Hoppy, who seems diabolical, but also really disinterested in her melodrama, and Bethenny needs someone to give validity to her hysteria or else she thinks they don’t ‘hear’ her.
The Real Housewives Of New York don’t even have to leave their luxury beach house to have insane, intense, authentic drama. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills can travel halfway around the world, be in insanely luxe settings, and still can’t make anything interesting occur.
Tonight the Real Housewives Of New York are still terrorizing Miami and if you can believe it they’ve only been there two days real time! After Sonja Morgan got so drunk she needed paramedics, Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Luann de Lesseps sit her down to warn her about the perils of alcoholism. Not all alkies wind up being a cabaret star, you know!
The Real Housewives of New York’s Barbara Kavovit has been prominently featured in her Housewife Friend role this season. She has been invited on all the cast trips, including the recent crazy vacation to Miami. Barbara’s Hamptons home even played a prominent role during earlier episodes when she hosted a drama filled clambake. The drama, however, wasn’t really clam-baked by Barbara herself.
The other ladies were stirring the clam pot. Barbara was mostly along for the ride. Sure, her support of Luann de Lesseps and her hesitancy to invite Dorinda Medley to the event fueled the tasty clam drama, but Barbara mostly stood back and watched while the real drama experts flung rotten shellfish at each other. Of course, like many other Housewives, some of Barbara’s most interesting drama takes place off camera. Which is the case with some unfortunate recent legal proceedings regarding her gorgeous Hamptons home.
Hasn’t it been a great season of the Real Housewives of New York? These ladies bring it every year and this season is no exception. Real friendships, real grudges and real forgiveness separate this show from the others. Plus, the New York Housewives do it all with humor–and a sense of ridiculousness–that is often lacking from other Housewife shows.
Often ridiculous Ramona Singer has been back to her old ways this season–meaning she is completely self-centered and expects that everyone around her should feel blessed by her presence. Of course, Luann de Lesseps’ self-absorbed post-rehab behavior has made her the target of most of the other ladies, so Ramona has received a bit of a behavior pass this season. The Real Housewives of New York reunion recently taped, however, and apparently Ramona’s season pass was revoked by Dorinda Medley.
It seems we’ve come full circle on the Real Housewives of Potomac. After falling out of Monique Samuels’ good graces last season for questioning her drinking habits, Ashley Darby is now under scrutiny by Candiace Dillard for the same reason. Since Ashley claims to be on karma’s “good side,” maybe irony is to blame instead.
Then there is Karen Huger. She chose to spend her night in New Orleans talking to literally anyone in the world except Gizelle Bryant. Gizelle is always in take-down mode and she clearly didn’t get enough of a rise out of Karen. So she decided to throw a wrench into the entire evening. A very well timed statement of, “Candiace doesn’t believe that you’re really trying to get pregnant,” escalated into a huge confrontation between Ashley and Candiace.
This show I tell you. The Real Housewives Of New York ladies know how to do it right. Every episode is like going to an all you can eat buffet.
Only on Real Housewives Of New York can you have a drunken collapse over an argument about cabaret turn into political commentary on the last time Sonja Morgan probably felt relevant. Which flows into competing artists giving out free art and Ramona Singer inviting her ex-husband and new boyfriend to a party, then being forced to admit to making out with her former friend’s ex-husband in front of another friend who also hooked up with this same guy.
Luann de Lesseps has been a lightning rod of controversy this season. If she is not chattering on about her cabaret show on the Real Housewives of New York, Luann is talking about her sobriety. Which is probably natural as she is enthusiastic about her new career–and she claims to be happy about her new found sobriety. As we have seen throughout the season, however, Luann’s co-stars are a bit less enthralled with the Countess’ epic self-absorption, which seems to be her newly discovered superpower.
Sonja Morgan has claimed Luann treats her co-stars like fans. Tinsley Mortimer says she has never seen Luann as arrogant as she has been recently. And Dorinda Medley has called Luann blatantly rude. During the ladies’ trip to Luann’s new round house in upstate New York, she was confronted about her me-me-me attitude and endless talk of cabaret. And all things Luann. Which makes you wonder how she really feels about her houseguests calling her out on her behavior in her own home.
