Tinsley Mortimer Says Barbara Kavovit Is Doing Luann De Lesseps’ “Dirty Work;” Dorinda Should Be Upset About Clambake

Real Housewives of New York is back for Season 11, and I am here for the drama! The ladies kicked off the season in the Hamptons, where we learned that the Housewives are divided into two teams: the blondes (led by Ramona Singer) and the brunettes (helmed by Luann De Lesseps). The exception is Sonja Morgan, who floats between the two camps.

Tinsley Mortimer, of course, is still looking for love. She split from on-and-off boyfriend Scott Kluth. Again. During Season 9 of RHONY, Tinsley was introduced to the Chicago businessman by Housewives alum  Carole Radziwell. This socialite is on a mission to obtain an engagement ring. Tinsley is not stopping until she gets one. Hopefully, she can avoid the temptation of trying on wedding dresses again before she has a commitment. That was just awkward.

Dorinda Medley - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

The new season of Real Housewives Of New York is rife with unresolved drama from the last finale.  We are only two episodes in, but the battle lines have been drawn.  And we’re back to blondes versus brunettes.  Surely it’s only practical that the ladies at the center of current feud are holding court in two different houses.  Bethenny Frankel and newbie Barbara Kavovit are sheltering Luann De Lesseps, while Ramona Singer hosts Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer.

As of what fans just saw, there is no reconciliation on the horizon for Luann and Dorinda.  But Dorinda, joined by Ramona, interviewed with PEOPLE Now last week and revealed that their relationship has done a 180 since filming the start of the season.

Mario Singer Returns To RHONY

If you’ve tried to pump that season eleven trailer of The Real Housewives of New York directly into your veins as much as I have, then I’m sure you’re well aware Ramona Singer’s infamous ex Mario Singer will make his first cameo on the show since 2011. A couple years ago, the RHONY OG discovered her husband of 22 years had been cheating on her through an article from Page Six. The woman in question was 27 at the time. However, it’s safe to say her and Mario’s affair did not age like a fine wine.

No one was happier to hear of this than Countless Luann de Lesseps, who’d been needled by Ramona for years over her own crumbling marriage and eventual divorce from then-husband.  Even though she avoided commenting on the betrayal as long as she could, inevitably Ramona filed for divorce as well in 2014. After nearly a decade away from the cameras, the sharp-tongued former househusband will return. But will they be on good terms?

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Last night the Real Housewives Of New York dragged all their dysfunction to the Hamptons where they split into two teams: Team Ramona Singer & Team Luann de Lesseps. Just like the old days… Usually Sonja Morgan likes being in the middle of some sweaty, howling, grunting, insane situations, and this time was no exception!

Sonja arrives at Ramona’s house after being driven by Tinsley Mortimer. After all Tinsley’s whining that she might crash before she even gets into the driver’s seat, she turned out to be a good driver. Which, according to Sonja, also naturally means Tinsley will be a good mother. Because… ?

For some reason Sonja has long extensions – from a photoshoot maybe. They look so ratty I assume she found them in a box in a the Townhouse basement labeled JP – Mother’s Victorian Wigs. Anyway, this inspires Dorinda Medley to whip out the mermaid costumes she brought so they all can do something besides eat, drink, go to restaurants and fight. Dorinda believes their mermaid photos will “go viral.” Which is usually what they’re saying about Sonja’s vagina.

Dorinda Medley Says She Thought Relationship With Luann De Lesseps Was “In A Better Place;” Bethenny Frankel’s Suffering “Breaks My Heart”

Real Housewives of New York is back, and Season 11 looks amazing so far! Faster than you can yell “Jovani” at a cabaret show, the continuing turmoil between Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps was brought to the forefront. After all, Luann did not take kindly to Dorinda’s drunken heckling enthusiastic support during her cabaret performance.

Of course, we all know it wasn’t about the Jovani. Instead, it was about Luann failing to invite Dorinda’s man, John Mahdessian to the big show. Dorinda’s blood was boiling once Tinsley Mortimer spilled the beans that Luann had invited her boyfriend, Scott Kluth, the day of the performance. Now that is some questionable etiquette, Countess.

RHONY-Dorinda-Medley

Triangles are the strongest shape in the world. That’s not the case when it comes to friendship. At the end of last season on the Real Housewives of New York, the friendship of Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley was reeling from some heavy, alcohol-laced hits. That meant Dorinda went from being the only cast member to be invited to Luann’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino—remember him?—to an enemy combatant. A frenemy who heckled Luann mercilessly during her cabaret show with cries of “Jovani.”

The Season 11 premiere of RHONY proved those wounds are still fresh. And the addition of  Barbara Kavovit’s as a Friend of the Housewives is just adding salt to those wounds. And, apparently, creating a toxic friendship triangle. Barbara also attended that cursed wedding. Even after she was picked up on former Real Housewives cast member Carole Radziwill’s microphone predicting that Luann would “rather go through with it and get divorced than call it off.”

Bethenny Frankel Mourns Dennis Shields - Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel can’t seem to catch a break. Her custody battle with her ex-husband Jason Hoppy has been extremely volatile. His alleged threats against her have gotten so bad, she recently requested full custody of their daughter Bryn Hoppy. The amount of stress she is under must be unnerving. 

On top of that, Bethenny has also been going through several health issues. During last season’s cast trip to Columbia, she had an allergic reaction to some fish. A few months ago, she had another allergic reaction which put her into anaphylactic shock. After, she had vision and memory issues. Now Bethenny has even more health concerns.

Ramona Singer “Hijacks” RHONY Premiere To Promote Her New Skincare Line; Co-Stars Call Her “Greedy”

Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York is already delivering drama- both onscreen and off. And, as usual, Ramona Singer is at the center of the controversy. First, she called out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump for not attending Andy Cohen’s baby shower. Then Ms. Turtle Time got busy stealing the RHONY premiere party to promote her new skincare line. Oh, Ramona!

What is going on with the Housewives and their premiere parties lately? LVP arrived at the Season 9 RHOBH premiere party before anyone else and left before Kyle Richards could confront make amends with her. Perhaps Bravo should have the cameras rolling at these premiere parties to document all the juicy drama.
