What do you get when you mix jailbird cabaret with speed dating with mothballs? The Real Housewives of New York, of course, which is still hitting it out of the park every week this season. I don’t know whether it was Luann de Lesseps singing in her classic Tony Bennet baritone in front of a penthouse piano, Sonja Morgan touting her cabarlesque (no spellcheck can help us here, folks) skills to actual, legitimate Broadway heavyweights, or Ramona Singer attempting to robotically flirt with/stalk men in scarves. But there was a Hangover meets Laurel & Hardy vibe to this week’s episode, which is a welcome gift after last week’s dry spell on Bravo.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
Luann de Lesseps is very busy these days with her cabaret show and this means The Countess doesn’t have time to dwell on the drama! But she does take a few minutes to reflect on the last episode of The Real Housewives of New York. In her latest blog, she shares her thoughts on Ramona Singer‘s photo faux pas and Tinsley Mortimer‘s wedding dress shopping.
First Luann makes sure to let Carole Radziwill know that rehab wasn’t some dream vacation. “After my experience in Florida, I can assure you that there is a huge difference between a spa like the Mayflower and rehab! Carole Radziwill thinks it would be “heaven” to stay in a facility for 28 days talking it out, yet if I had to choose, I’d pick the spa every time!!!”
Most people expected Luann de Lesseps to take a break from the spotlight after a quickie marriage, drunken arrest, and rehab stint, but the Real Housewives of New York seems to be better than ever. I would call it a “comeback,” but she really wasn’t gone for too long. The woman bounced back right away- minus the possibility of legal consequences still lingering.
She is the center of attention on Real Housewives of New York. She has a successful cabaret show. She is sober. She really seems to be working on herself and focused on her professional life- but does she also have a new romance in her life? That is the rumor.
Just like most dedicated television watchers, reality TV stars also get star struck when they meet their favorite celebrities.
Carole Radziwill getting candid! The Real Housewives of New York star shares her thoughts on Luann de Lesseps‘ arrest, her relationship with Adam Kenworthy and reveals her struggle every season to decide if she should return to the show. Carole also dishes on which cast member makes her laugh the most.
On why the viewers seem to agree with her on many things, “I think I’m a very rational, centered person so I think a lot of people watching the show think of themselves that way, so I feel like that’s relatable. I get that a lot when people stop me on the street. They say ‘you’re my favorite, I think we could be friends,’ but then I wonder ‘do they say that to everyone’? Like are they stopping Luann on the street and saying that? Stopping Ramona on the street and saying that?”
Sonja Morgan always has a good time, especially when she’s an interview guest! Sonja loves to spill the tea and she delivers once again in her latest Q&A with Bravo’s Daily Dish podcast! Sonja reveals changing friendships in the Real Housewives of New York cast, talks about her struggle to choose between Frenchie and Rocco, and weighs in on her issues with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer – and so much more!
Sonja on how she’s doing, “ask me that after you’ve watched another 22 or 23 episodes. You’ll get to see a lot of T&A in the cabaret!” She laughs, “If you don’t go to the cabaret you’ll see me half naked elsewhere, I’m sure. If you come to the gay party, I don’t know what episode that is”
On not being surprised that Luann de Lesseps‘ cabaret is taking off and doing so well. “Not at all, I knew Luann way back when. She was always doing improv and I remember my first time on Andy Cohen with Lu (on WWHL) She was doing her disco hits and I told Andy she should just be doing her Broadway, ‘You should hear it, Andy, it’s amazing.’ I remember saying that and here she is full circle, belting them out.”
Even though Fourth of July was on a Wednesday this year, plenty of reality TV stars still managed to celebrate the party in the middle of the week. Some of them got away to celebrate and others just kicked it in their own backyard with their families.
