*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.
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.
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 certainly got a dud of a cast trip this year because they’re heading to Miami again! Not only is that a lame destination – as compared to getting capsized in Columbia – but they’re forced to stay stateside courtesy of Luann de Lesseps‘ probation.
I guess last time the Real Housewives Of New York traveled to Miami Bethenny Frankel unleashed evidence that Luann’s then-fiance Tom D’Agostino was cheating, so that was exciting, I guess. And then there was all the drama with Aviva Drescher‘s dad which went down in Miami a few seasons back. This time there is no Aviva, but there’s certainly Harry! Always Harry Dubin. Always Tom. Always dick, but never with a capital D.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New York, the women traveled upstate – like way upstate – to have another intervention with Luann de Lesseps. This time about how her cabaret has become unmanageable and out of control.
Sonja Morgan rides to Luann’s Catskills home in the equivalent of a private jet on wheels. Basically, a camper van repurposed into a luxury hotel room. It still has more amenities than the townhouse, though, because it features a working toilet!
Ah, Lady Sonja Morgan. I don’t really have anything bad to say about Sonja. Since joining Real Housewives of New York in 2010, she has proved to be entertaining. Her main partner in crime used to be Ramona Singer. Over the years the two have bonded over Pinot
Gigolo Grigio and multiple hardships. All while being filmed, of course.
So far this season, we haven’t seen a great deal of Sonja riding the Ramonacoaster. Sonja thinks Ramona crossed a line when she spoke of Dennis Shields‘ death in a disparaging way (she was right). Ramona thought Sonja went to the wackadoo farm during the Berkshires trip. I think it was just our old pal,
Drunk Sonja. Drunk Sonja means you no harm! Maybe Sonja is still salty about Ramona’s make-out sesh with Harry Dubin? Also, ew. If Sonja and Ramona were a Facebook relationship status, right now it would be, “it’s complicated”.
Real Housewives Of New York is like being in city traffic and hearing a loud bang and not knowing where it came from and whether or not it’s a gun going off, a car backfiring, or Ramona Singer exploding in your face.
Luann de Lesseps is in full hoity-toity mode. Cabaret Star has replaced Countess as Luann’s new schtick, and she invited all the girls to a Halloween party where she’s performing. The theme is insane asylum – perfect for this group! Luann is dressed as a sexy nurse, but Bethenny Frankel comes as a slutty guardian angel, aka Luann’s savior. Was that shady or unintentional?
Luann’s performance is supposed to start at 11, but of course, the Countess is late, girls! After waiting around for 2 hours, when Luann couldn’t even come down to say hello, or invite them backstage to her dressing room, Bethenny leaves explaining that her babysitter is expecting her.
What would the Real Housewives of New York be without Sonja Morgan? No matter how rough the going gets between the ladies, Sonja is always ready with a little comedy, a little drama, and a little stirring of the pot. This season, we have witnessed Sonja have a booze-fueled Morgan Memories breakdown at Blue Stone Manor and also steal the show from Tinsley Mortimer at the Big Apple Circus. Sonja was even feted as the cover girl at a Paper Magazine party.
And it was at that same party that something a little unusual happened. OK-lets be honest-Sonja and practically everything about her is a “little unusual”-but at the party, a seemingly random woman came up and kissed her-passionately. And Sonja didn’t really seem to mind. A bit. Was this some overly enthusiastic fan? An attention-getting set-up by Ms. Morgan? We’ll probably never know. But we are now getting more of the details on Sonja’s real views about dipping into the lady pond. And they might surprise you.
