On Real Housewives Of New York Tonight
There is a new Real Housewives of New York episode on tonight. Normally, the Big Apple residents come through. However, this season, there’s no plot in sight. The show used to be so great, but at this point, it almost feels like a chore to watch. Let’s hope that things pick up tonight. The ladies celebrate Halloween. Previously, they’ve celebrated at Blue Stone Manor, Dorinda Medley’s home in the Berkshires. Tonight, they participate in a holiday-themed tour called Blood Manor.
Tinsley Mortimer returns from visiting Scott Kluth in Chicago. She has some “big news” to share with her costars friends. Most likely, she’s just going to confirm that she and Scott are “officially” back together, which is a surprise to no one. Or maybe she’s gonna tell them that she’s making the move to Chicago, which, again is a surprise to absolutely no one. But, at least Tinsley’s mom Dale Mercer makes an appearance, which is always entertaining… at Tinsley’s expense, of course.

If Dorit Kemsley were designing a dining room for the women of Real Housewives Of New York it would require padded walls (and floors), plus a vacuum that descended from the ceiling to pick loose clumps of food and spilled drinks. It would also need each table to come equipped with a megaphone and tissue dispensers. And possibly, if we’re being really ambitious it would need men, of any ilk and sort, schlubby, stuffy, dad bod, inappropriately clad, drunk, dull, droids – whatever as look as they seem convincing male-ish, they’ll pass. And never get between a Real Housewife of New York and a man!

In Newport, Rhode Island where Ramona Singer is pretending to be of the puritanical Mayfair class that Tinsley Mortimer hails from, no one can behave. Leah McSweeney is throwing anything she can pick up, and now they’re in yet another bar having yet another emotional meltdown. Honestly — someone just put hormones in their drinks because it’s like everyone in this cast is constantly PMSing.

The Real Housewives of New York ladies are still in Newport, Rhode Island on tonight’s episode. And the “fun” continues. Tinsley Mortimer hosts a dinner for the cast, which doesn’t go well. Ramona Singer ditches the group to flirt with random men at the bar.

That behavior is expected for Ramona. And, at some point, Leah McSweeney hurls at ravioli at Ramona for screentime.

 

Elyse Slaine RHONY Real Housewives of New York

Elyse Slaine may not be doing much on Real Housewives Of New York, but it’s a shame because there are so many skeletons in her closet. Dorinda Medley hinted at them on last week’s’ episode, and since I am oh-so-nosy it prompted me to do some digging.

After all, Bravo doesn’t hire the saintly types. Even if Elyse hasn’t officially been hired, you know Bravo wouldn’t give her the time of day if there wasn’t something nefarious to dig into!

Let’s just say the Elyse in the history books of Page Six (once called one of Wall Street’s “most fascinating first wives,”) is far more interesting than the Elyse who is lecturing Leah McSweeney on propriety and alcohol consumption (although to be fairness Tiki Torches McStabby probably does need a good talking-to).

Real Housewives Of New York Dorinda Medley

When Dorinda Medley joined Real Housewives of New York, she became an instant fan favorite. In contrast, the current season is rough for her and a lot of her drama appears to be her fault. Dorinda has been relentlessly attacking Tinsley Mortimer. Leah McSweeney seemingly hit the nail on the head when she theorized that Dorinda is just jealous of Tinsley’s wealth and privilege.

Yes, Dorinda was struggling after her home flooded. Going through a public breakup is tough. Throw in the fact that she’s still struggling to grieve her late husband and it adds up to a lot. And, yes, Tinsley is not as open as the other women who literally get paid to be open about their lives. Dorinda is probably not the only one who’s frustrated by that, but her level of anger just doesn’t seem to be justified. Tinsley seems to be pretty nice to her too. What gives? It’s just an incredibly unflattering season for Dorinda. That’s for sure. However, Elyse Slaine says that things are not as they appear.

Dorinda Ramona anger

In a surprise to most Real Housewives of New York fans, Ramona Singer has served a voice of reason for most of the current season. However, things are really blowing up for her this week. She turned against her friend of 20 years Elyse Slaine, who responded by sharing screenshots of their private text message conversations. Leah McSweeney called out Ramona for refusing to include her sister Sarah McSweeney on a cast trip.  Leah and Sarah also accused Ramona of “pooping her pants” and “flirting with drunk, married men” at the same time.

On top of that, Ramona is beefing with Dorinda Medley, who has, apparently, taken a break from tearing down Tinsley Mortimer to fight with Ramona on social media. She also thinks that Ramona is “insensitive” to what she’s going through. This off-season fighting is a lot more interesting than the rather boring season we’ve been watching.

Real Housewives Of New York Leah McSweeney

I love Real Housewives Of New York. Also, I want to hang out with them. The FOMO is worse than ever with this whole quarantine thing and everything. I will drink 10 martinis and lose my mind with Leah McSweeney. I will tear down the genteel (only-in-delusion) Upper East Side establishment – starting with their flowers. I will burn Newport to the ground with a fire of toasted marshmallows and vodka. It will be great. Ramona Singer can take her wannabe elegance and stuff it like a lobster roll.

Anyway, Ramona has invited all the Real Housewives of New York ladies to beautiful and sophisticated Newport, RI where she’s attempting to refashion herself into some sort of elegant grand dame in the search of a wealthy husband. Pssst…. Turtle Time, that ship has sailed. Meanwhile, there is Tinsley Mortimer, whose family actually owns a house in Newport where they spend summers. They winter in Palm Beach.

See, this is why they hate Tinsley. It’s not her screeching, or the whining, or the Power Puff Girl makeup with plastic-y tears, it’s the access. The blue bloodstock that doesn’t come from marrying up, and won’t dry-up with divorce.

Leah McSweeney RHONY Real Housewives of New York

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been yawning my way through the current Real Housewives of New York season. Pretty much nothing is happening other than some overindulgence in alcohol. During last night’s episode, Leah McSweeney was excited to introduce the group to her sister Sarah McSweeney.

Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan were not on board with that plan. They wanted to restrict the Newport trip invite list to just the cast. Leah was not happy about this. Then, Ramona picked at Leah for her drinking, which incited Leah to drink even more… and inexplicably start throwing objects. Yesterday, Leah called out Ramona for being unwelcoming to her sister, among other things. Last night, Leah and her sister Sarah continued to slam Ramona, and eventually, Ramona even got Avery Singer involved in the social media feud.
