With Luann fresh out of rehab and Carole‘s announcement that she will not be back on the show next season, I figured they would retract their claws, but apparently that’s not the case. Luann referenced Carole’s departure from Real Housewives of New York during her cabaret show and Carole snapped back on Twitter with a pretty scathing insult.
Ironically enough, Luann is back in rehab, and she probably didn’t get a chance to watch this episode yet, but Dorinda sure did. She shared her side of the story with Andy Cohen during last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Now sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful ship – that started out as Housewives fun and ended up as sh*t. The Bethenny! The Countess too! The Dorinda – and her kniiiiiife. The Ramonacoaster, The Carole/Sonja/Tinsley train…here on CLUSTERF**K ISLE!
Last night’s episode was iconic before it even aired. The Real Housewives Of New York nightmare on the high seas will forever live on in Bravo history and virtually needs no introduction. So, let’s just dive right in (ha). It’s the morning after the multi-argument dinner from hell, and everyone convenes for breakfast for a nice relaxing boat ride, and Dorinda Medley is still loaded for bear. Although everyone else is worn out from the drama, Dorinda snaps at Luann de Lesseps when she snaps at everyone about her Countess title being a valid “stage name.”
After months of build up, the time has finally come: the Real Housewives of New York boat trip from hell. As of this moment, there has been a lot of speculation about what happened and finally it is going to be addressed.
There’s no word on how much will actually be shown, but it’s definitely going to be hot topic of conversation on tonight’s episode even the upcoming reunion episodes.
There are some Housewives who have to reach for a story line with their business ventures, fake relationships, and other contrived plot lines. Luann de Lessepsis not one of those Housewives. This woman is just the gift that keeps on giving.
Nothing can stop her from moving forward: not a divorce, a drunken arrest, a rehab stint, or even a second rehab stint. And that’s not even the entire list of everything Luann has been through in the past year. Even with all of that she is still very insistent on coming through for her upcoming cabaret performances.
There are no answers to those questions- yet-but there is one thing that is certain: Ramona Singer is sad that Carole is leaving the show. These two never seemed particularly close, but Carole is the only one who can go toe to toe with Bethenny, so at the very least it would make sense for Ramona to want her around next season.
Guys, this Cartegena trip is not going well. The Real Housewives Of New York continue their journey to the center of Bethenny Frankel’s emotional meltdown this week as she continues to unravel. Dorinda Medley offers support in the best way she knows how: by letting Bethenny cry, then getting drunk and picking a fight with Luann de Lesseps at dinner. While their argument picks up steam on one end of the table, Carole Radziwill faces off with Bethenny on the other. Basically, it’s a boom operator’s nightmare, what with microphones only able to pick up on one Housewife clusterf**k at a time!
Before we get to the big fight, we pick up right where we left off: Bethenny in the kitchen with Dorinda, crying and shoving her head into the freezer. WTF?!? After rejecting Luann’s comfort, Bethenny unloads her worries on Dorinda. She’s in a custody battle with her ex, she’s moving to a new apartment, her life is too scheduled, and she’s at war with her (former) best friend. Basically, Bethenny’s life can be summed up as #ThisIsACrisis.
