In all honesty, Tinsley Mortimer isn’t bringing much to Real Housewives of New York. Then again, pretty much no one is, which I’m sure is tough to do after they had the best season ever last year. Hopefully they turn things around with this Mexico trip (and Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into the bushes), but the episodes up to this point have been a total snooze fest. The only thing going on is Bethenny Frankel’s feud with Ramona Singer, which has dragged out way too long and just isn’t entertaining anymore.
Still, it did get kind of weird when Bethenny and Ramona attempted to have a “private” conversation in front of the cameras for a cast dinner. Then Bethenny got weirdly offended when other people eavesdropped even though no one could help listening in to a conversation that was happening a few inches away from them.
With The Real Housewives Of New York’s trip to Mexico just around the corner, Luann D’Agostino is gathering her wits and her statement necklaces about her for the
dysfunctional adventure ahead. She says she’s excited to see footage roll of the ladies’ shenanigans (including her falling down the steps…into the bushes…from grace), but that she wishes Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer would just put their drama behind them. (HA!)
Luann reflects, “Over the past nine years, I’ve taken some amazing trips with the ladies. We’ve ridden camels, skied, partied in clubs with pirates (and on sandbars), and stayed in some incredible houses, so I’m excited to go to Mexico with the girls. Ramona’s going no matter what and hopefully she will behave.”
There is no doubt about it: Sonja Morgan always elevates the situation when she is a guest on Watch What Happens Live. Andy Cohen barely has to do any work as the host because Sonja delivers comedic gold without even trying.
Speaking of gold, Million Dollar Listing New York‘s newest cast member Steve Gold was in the clubhouse as well and they both had some hilarious things to say.
As The Real Housewives Of New York get ready for their Mexico trip, sponsored by
Skinnygirl (TM) Bethenny Frankel, Tinsley Mortimer decides to mimic her favorite gradeschool character by moving into a room on the tippy top floor! (Eloise shout out) of her favorite hotel. Because she’s a grownup now and thinks this will prove it. Plus, moving furniture is just too overwhelming – as is walking, thinking, breathing, and blinking for dear Tins. In fact, she’s getting the vapors just thinking about it all. She just wants to kiss random men in public (like the one Carole Radziwill sets her up with) and get her blowouts on the UES, where room service and clean towels rain down from heaven!!!
Good thing Sonja Morgan’s new eyebrows have been painted solidly to her face, so she’s able to make the wide assortment of facial expressions necessary when Tinsley announces her big-girl plans at dinner. Meanwhile, Ramona Singer’s also got a few facial
contortions expressions in store for Bethenny, who sits down with her frenemy to discuss her trip invite – or lack thereof.
For the most part, the Real Housewives of New York cast is full of dynamic characters. No matter what you think about Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, and Dorinda Medley, you have to admit that they really bring it as cast members. Excluding some people from that list is my subtle way of saying who the boring ones are. Why are they on the cast when there are so many viable candidates in New York City?
Even Bethenny herself wants a more diverse cast. The part about some people being boring was just my own personal commentary, but my point is that there are is definitely some dead weight on this show and that in combination with Bethenny’s wish for diversity can go hand in hand. Andy Cohen, are you listening? Drop those other two and spice up the show.
Ever since Dorinda Medley’s “CLIP!” moment, The Real Housewives Of New York housewife has been keeping it mum on the blogs. But she’s back this week to rehash her Bronx beatdown of Sonja Morgan and to translate what exactly she was trying to drunkenly say at the ladies’ Vermont dinner. In a nutshell: Dorinda thinks Sonja is certifiably cuckoo and that Luann D’Agostino is sometimes a blow hard, albeit a harmless one that should just be given a break, already.
First, Dorinda comments on the new “Bloop!” in town – aka, Clip. She jokes, “Clip Clip Clip! I have no idea where that comes from, I just couldn’t figure out a away to stop Sonja from saying more lies! I had no idea it would replace STFU and be used worldwide! Thank you everyone for your messages showing me your ‘Clip Clip Clip’ moments.”
Say what you will about The Real Housewives Of New York, but these women (well, most of them) know how to bounce back from an argument within the time it takes to go from a main course to dessert. And Luann D’Agostino was a prime example of this whiplash-like behavior in Vermont, where the drama reached a crescendo at dinner and the sex talk reached new levels of raunch.
In her blog, Luann explains why she’s always got Dorinda Medley’s back, no matter how much they bicker, and why she is hopeful that Sonja Morgan will tone it down about her marriage – eventually.
Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York was all about manners and anal sex – and who has which, or both, or – oh hell! I don’t know. I do know that Dorinda Medley has very strong opinions about it all, and the artist formerly known as Countess Luann de Lesseps [D’Agostino] gets caught in Dorinda’s crosshairs because of it – sort of. Alas, having used up all of her “CLIP! CLIIIIIIPPPP!”s for the week, Gangsta Do is forced to come up with new ways of saying, I think you’re a world class asswipe, m’lady! to her trip mate.
It seems everyone has survived their first night in Vermont. Bethenny Frankel locking Luann in the basement hasn’t actually killed the NEW BRIDE, so the ladies are free to indulge in avocado toast before hitting the slopes. While Ramona Singer brings her sister-wife, Sonja Morgan, coffee in bed, Bethenny apologizes to Tinsley Mortimer for being cold to her at dinner the previous night. She’s going through her own relationship hell, so she doesn’t need to be piling on anyone else about theirs. Tinsley feels slightly relieved that she’ll be attacked by one less Housewife on this trip, but she’s still generally overwhelmed (because that is her default setting).
