New York Fashion Week was the place to be for reality TV star sightings. Tinsley Mortimer returned to the runway as a model. Real Houswives of New York stars Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, and Dorinda Medley were on hand to support. Sonja even hosted a fashion show of her own.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills OG Kyle Richards had her first fashion week show. Erika Jayne, Dorit Kemsley, Lisa Rinna, and Denise Richards had a great time walking in Kyle’s show. On the other hand, Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave was not happy about her reception at fashion week. She admitted that she cried in response to the criticism about her walk, which is odd since she didn’t cry when Kyle made fun of it on RHOBH last season.
As the Countess would say, this is pretty “uncool”. We certainly don’t see this happen a lot. Remember that one time Luann de Lesseps was arrested in Palm Beach County? You might have seen the video shared about 933 times on Real Housewives of New York. Yes, Lu briefly found herself on the wrong end of a handcuff key after imbibing too much alcohol and losing the ability to be quiet.
Who can forget the magical time Luann’s holiday card came with a mugshot? LuAnn was really going through it after her five-minute marriage to Tom D’Agostino. Everyone from Lu’s co-stars, to strangers on the street tried to warn the Countess from the box of red flags that was her fiance. But love is blind and LuAnn wound up learning a difficult lesson. On December 24, 2017, LuAnn was arrested for disorderly intoxication, along with other charges. Now it looks like the cop that arrested her might be catching some charges of his own.
The Real Housewives of New York’s Luann de Lesseps was the focus of much of Season 11–for better or worse. All roads led to Luann and we took exhausting trips with her down Sobriety Lane, Cabaret Court and Narcissist Boulevard. At times, it was enough to make you want to smash your GPS and take a trip to anywhere but New York City or the Hamptons.
Bethenny Frankel was one of Luann’s biggest supporters at the start of the season, having just helped get her into a rehab facility. By the time the cast went on their Miami trip, however, Bethenny was fed up with Luann’s self-centeredness and exploded at her in a restaurant in an epic meltdown. The two never quite got back on track as friends and continued to spar at the reunion. So, where does their relationship stand today?
Real Housewives of New York‘s original cast members have come and gone. Some have just recently left… Then there are those who never really go away. Jill Zarin helped launch RHONY, along with Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, and Luann de Lesseps. While Beth, Ramona, and the Countess have all stayed relatively close to the fold, Jill
was fired left the series in 2011. After an explosive relationship with Bethenny that resulted in the end of their friendship, it also resulted in the end of Jill.
Jill didn’t let go easily. It’s never been a secret Jill wanted back in, but she basically blew it. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live in 2012, Jill decided to “secretly tape” her interview with Andy Cohen. Let’s just say Big Daddy wasn’t tickled with the stunt queen move. That little slip up effectively booked Jill a trip to Bravo Siberia. But times have changed! Now that Bethenny has left the building, does this mean a door is open for Jill? Will viewers receive an encore performance of Jill’s panther-like moves on the tennis court? Maybe so, if Andy is in a forgiving mood.
Tides may be turning for Real Housewives of New York’s Tinsley Mortimer. We watched her struggle in and finally end her relationship with Scott Kluth. And we witnessed the heartbreaking passing of her beloved dog.
Tinsley always seemed to be struggling to find herself in a word where she had to settle down and marry in order to get the family she always wanted. Well, it might not be a man, or a child, but a return to the runway could hopefully mean things are looking up.
During last season of Real Housewives of New York, Dorinda Medley made some big changes. At the reunion, she finally mended her relationship with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps. However, Dorinda wasn’t as kind to RHONY newbie Barbara Kavovit. She compared Barbara to a turnip sitting in a fruit basket. Wow.
Dorinda also moved to a new three-bedroom apartment in Manhattan. And while long-time boyfriend John Mahdessian would love to move in, Dorinda isn’t exactly putting out a welcome mat.
Labor Day means a long weekend, which usually translates to some fun times with family and friends. Some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members headed down to Cabo to celebrate Lala Kent’s twenty-ninth birthday. Lala posted a photo in her birthday suit. Stassi Schroeder posed with a sombrero on. Katie Maloney showed off her assets for the camera as well.
Meanwhile, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright went out of the way to make sure that their social media followers knew that they missed their flights to Cabo just in case anyone wondered if they weren’t invited. And I can’t blame them given Jax’s other cast feuds.
Many reality stars naturally continue their friendships with castmates off camera. Like the sycophantic relationship between the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Or former Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel helping frenemy Luann de Lesseps find her way to rehab #2.
On occasion, however, more confounding alliances pop up in the reality world. Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Judge, who has always been known to speak her mind, recently defended two reality stars most of us probably never imagined she had a connection to.
