Luann De Lesseps

Sonja Morgan blog

Sonja Morgan has an uncanny ability to navigate through all the drama of the Real Housewives Of New York.  She’s definitely got into some feuds with her castmates. However, she always manages to smooth things over with just the right amount of charm.

So naturally, because of this finesse, Sonja often finds herself in the middle of a feud.  And on this 11th Season of RHONY, it’s all about Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley.  The other ladies are, of course, taking sides with Bethenny Frankel on Team Countess while Ramona Singer has been backing her friend Dorinda.  This week on her blog, Sonja shared her opinions as the feud intensified and several lobsters went unaccounted for at Barbara Kavovit’s clambake.

Real Housewives of New York recap

Jill Zarin has not been a housewife for several years now, but that won’t stop her from chiming in on the drama. The last time we saw Jill (on the show), it was at the funeral of husband Bobby Zarin, who passed away from cancer. Since then, the former Real Housewives of New York star has a new love and finds herself popping up on a few episodes this season.

After somewhat recovering from her fallout with Bethenny Frankel, Jill maintains relationships with most of the current cast. While it is the blondes versus the brunettes in the Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps saga, you won’t see Jill picking sides. With loyalty to both ladies, Jill shares her feelings on the divided cast.

Dorinda Medley Sides With Lobsters At Barbara Kavovits’s Clambake

While fur is flying in the 90210 courtesy of #PuppyGate, the Real Housewives of New York are sifting through the ashes of #ClambakeGate.  Newcomer Barbara Kavovit disinvited Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer for the sake of Luann de Lessep’s newfound sobriety. At least Barbara thought she disinvited them, but Ramona wasn’t quite sure and showed up anyway.

Dorinda stayed away. That was her choice after she refused–at Barbara’s request–to apologize to Luann for her drunken heckling at Lu’s cabaret show.  It turned out Dorinda was still waiting for Luann’s apology to her for telling the press that she is an alcoholic.  An argument that started during the cast trip to Colombia last season when Dorinda famously said to Luann, “Why don’t you drink some more and get arrested?”

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Luann de Lesseps pleaded to “being fabulous” in her tagline for season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York. A ballsy nod to Countess Lu’s arrest in Palm Beach for being a hot drunk mess.  These days the Countess’s fabulousness consists of more feuding than etiquette, so there are plenty of candidates for the crown of “least favorite.”

Luann’s conflicts with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer have been a focus of the season so far. Both costars angered Luann by mocking her approach toward rehab and recovery.  For the moment, Luann and Bethenny Frankel appear to be on solid ground. But based on their past, there is some truth to Ramona calling it a friendship by “default.”  In past seasons, Luann and Carole Radziwill were mostly “all uncool.” It was a coldness rooted in Carole’s relationship with Adam Kenworthy, Luann’s former chef and the ex-boyfriend of her niece. Luann has even accused Tinsely Mortimer  of being a mean girl even though I don’t think Tins could hurt a fly. So, who is Lu’s least favorite Housewife?

RHONY-Sonja-Morgan

Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan is back in the Hamptons, folks. This time without the aid of mass transit! Tinsley Mortimer must have prayed to Jesus and Coco Chanel to take the wheel. She managed to deliver them safely to Ramona Singer’s house (that is far, far away from the highway). Fresh off a photo shoot, Sonja had her mermaid extensions and a neutral attitude on this trip. Hope she packed some Mane ‘n Tail shampoo!

Since the group is divided and she is not currently in dispute with anyone, Sonja finds herself having to navigate between the camps. One thing remains clear, whether it’s dueling restaurant invites or clambake dis-invites, none of these people can consume a meal without drama.

Ramona Singer - Real Housewives Of New York Clambake

Last week’s Real Housewives Of New York gave us a Mermaid Moonwalk. This week Ramona Singer terrorized a clambake by stuffing whole lobsters in a plastic grocery bag. This is why Real Housewives Of New York is the best!

“I’m not quite sure if I’m invited or not but I’m inviting myself,” shrugs Ramona, arriving at Barbara Kavovit‘s much-anticipated clambake. She believes wine is the salve that soothes all social wounds. So by bringing two bottles of rosé, PLUS a fancy pie, there’s no way she’ll be turned away. Who knew she’d leave with so many party favors. 

Ramona Singer Says “How Smart Can Dennis Be? I Mean, He Was On Drugs” On Tonight’s Real Housewives Of New York Episode

The blondes vs. brunettes dynamics continue on tonight’s Real Housewives of New York episode. Dorinda Medley sits out Barbara Kavovit’s clambake, after she was unceremoniously disinvited. However, Ramona still attends even though she was not welcome as well.

Ramona is still at odds with Luann de Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel. Plus, she doesn’t seem to like Barbara too much. At all. Those two will definitely be screaming at each other later in the season. Right? So why would she go to this party? Oh, yeah: for the camera time. And the clams, right? Maybe Ramona just had a major craving for some seafood.

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York

Life is a cabaret. Or at least that’s what Luann de Lesseps thinks. The first two episodes of Real Housewives of New York Season 11 have centered around two of her major feuds. Luann wants nothing to do with Dorinda Medley since the Jovani heckling.

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 Frankel and the new girl Barbara Kavovit as 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!
