And, then there’s Ramona Singer, who Luann is on bad terms with every other season. It’s tradition at this point. This time around, Lu has a lot of support. At this point in the season, she has Bethenny Frankeland the new girl Barbara Kavovitas her post-rehab ride or dies. Barbara even went so far as to disinvite Ramona and Dorinda from her party just to make sure Luann was comfortable. She may not be a full-time cast member, but she is proving herself to be a loyal soldier friend to Luann!
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.
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 CountlessLuann 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?
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.
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 Luannfailing to inviteDorinda’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.
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.”
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.
