During a recent episode of Real Housewives of New York, Luann de Lesseps showed Dorinda Medley photos of an “American Idol winner” on her phone, who was set to appear in Lu’s cabaret. His name was bleeped out during the conversation, but in addition to pointing out how hot she thinks he is, Lu said that he dated Tinsley Mortimer.
Ramona Singer chimed in that she dated him too, which is shocking since Ramona never fesses up to dating anyone specifically…even though she’s always bragging about double-booking dates, which just makes zero sense. It took fans virtually no time to figure out that the ladies were talking about Constantine Maroulis, who didn’t actually win American Idol. However, he did get in sixth place during season 4.
Ah, Sonja Morgan. What can I say? I simply cannot get enough of this woman on the Real Housewives of New York. She is a gift to the reality television world. We’re only five episodes in to Season 12, and Sonja has already given us more iconic moments than I can count.
In both last season and the current one, Sonja has been struggling with letting go of the past. She continually brings up her former life with her ex-husband John Adams Morgan. If you remember Sonja’s famous meltdown over the Morgan letters, you’ll know that this is a very sensitive subject for her. RHONY newbie Leah McSweeney even said she knows more about Sonja’s former life than her current one. But now Sonja is ready to move on with her life and find love, and she’s got a very specific idea of what she’s looking for.
In many interviews throughout the years, Aviva Drescher cited Carole Radziwill’s close friendship with Andy Cohen as the reason she got fired from Real Housewives of New York. Andy is a producer on the show and he knew Carole before she became a cast member. Recently, Carole denied ever being close with him, but Aviva still blames their relationship for her departure.
However, Harry Dubin, Aviva’s ex-husband, and sometimes love interest of Sonja Morgan, Luann de Lesseps, and Kelly Bensimon, despites his ex’s claims. He says that she couldn’t continue as a cast member for a more serious reason.
There’s just something about Harry Dubin. He is somehow connected to pretty much every Real Housewives of New York cast member. Harry was married to Aviva Drescher, of leg-throwing fame. He had a decades-long on-again-off-again thing with Sonja Morgan. Harry has even hooked up with Luann de Lesseps and he’s friends with Lu’s ex-husband Tom D’Agostino. Aviva recently revealed that Harry hooked up with Kelly Bensimon.
And, who can forget that leaked photo of Harry and Ramona Singer making out? Sonja went ballistic when she saw it, hitting her head against the table during last season’s Miami trip. Blaming Tinsley Mortimer has become a go-to tactic for the RHONY ladies, but apparently, that whole fiasco just might be her fault after all. Or at least that’s what Harry theorizes.
At some points, it has felt like Harry Dubin is an honorary cast member on Real Housewives of New York. He has some history with every one of them. His first connection to the group was Sonja Morgan, whom he met years before he got married to Aviva Drescher. Harry has hooked up with Luann de Lesseps and Kelly Bensimon. He was also caught making out with Ramona Singer.
This man is a staple among the New York Housewives and he has a lot of tea to spill about the ladies.
Well, well, look what we have here! Our favorite emotional clown, Tinsley Mortimer has been spotted with cameras following her around in New York. It either means mother Dale Mercer now has her under constant surveillance or filming is underway for Real Housewives of New York. The franchise took a heavy hit with the announcement of Bethenny Frankel’s departure. We don’t know if she’s married, moving away, or if another fish is trying to kill her, but we wish her luck. Now that Bethenny has flown from the tragedy that is Tinsley’s love life, will we be sustained with
the last 15 minutes of LuAnn de Lesseps cabaret career?
Maybe not, thanks to Leah McSweeney. There has been speculation she is ready to jump in and filled the void left by Bethenny’s exit. Those are big shoes to fill, so good luck with that. Leah isn’t exactly a headline-maker. She is a single mom and founder of street brand, Married to the Mob. No word on whether or not she has dated Harry Dubin, which seems to be a requirement of most NY housewives. While details about Leah remain scarce, allegedly she likes people who text her back. Apparently Leah and Tinsley are hanging out, which is good because Tinsley needs a partner when FaceTiming her embryos. Now we wait and see who brings what to the table, and if Leah has an apple on her plate.
