If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? Yes, we’ve seen the Real Housewives of New York cast travel to Mexico a million times at this point, but to quote Sonja Morgan, “We always have the best time.” Seriously though. The viewers enjoy it, the cast goes all out, and in all honesty, the other Real Housewives shows should take notes. This cast always delivers.
Yes, it would be great to switch up the RHONY cast trip locations, but the ladies always pull through in Mexico. Who could forget Luann de Lesseps drunkenly falling into that bush? What about Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer’s naked heart to heart in the pool? There have been so many classic RHONY moments south of the border. I am sure there will be even more iconic scenes from the Season 12 Mexico trip.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer has been off-and on-again
a million many times with Coupon King Scott Kluth. After spending about a year apart, the duo once again decided to give it another try in October. Again.
RHONY viewers know that all Tinsley wants is a wealthy husband who is ready to fertilize her frozen eggs. Tinsley really wants to be a mom. But given all the drama in this relationship, who would have bet that Scott would commit to Tinsley? Complicating matters is the fact that Scott lives in Chicago, and Tinsley is a New York Housewife.
Sonja Morgan is always the life of the party. The Real Housewives of New York star makes sure fun follows wherever she goes. Sometimes a little too much fun. Last season, Sonja had a scary fall from a chair on the cast Miami trip while drinking. Fortunately, she was alright. Last month, she was reportedly booted from a Philadelphia gay bar for bad behavior. You know the behavior must be terrible if an iconic Housewife is booted from a gay bar!
One area of Sonja’s life that hasn’t always been a carefree party is her New York City townhouse. It was apparent from past seasons that the place had seen better days. Dated decor, plumbing issues, water damage and more have bedeviled our Sonja for years. Not to mention the bathroom sink that came off the wall during one of her amorous adventures! Oh–and the brown ice that was dispensed from her refrigerator–another townhouse highlight. Now, Sonja has decided to sell her beloved Morgan Gardens.
It seems like Luann de Lesseps life is on the upswing. Her life is cabaret-based, as Real House of New York viewers
cannot escape know. Luann has been “on display” (shout out to RHONJ’s Melissa Gorga) and has been enjoying soaking up the limelight.
This cabaret queen has had a tough couple of years. Luann completed her probation following her arrest on Dec. 24, 2017 in Palm Beach. The RHONY star was charged with several counts, including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence.
Last season, for better or worse, Real Housewives of New York was anchored around Luann de Lesseps. Everyone else was a supporting player to the cabaret queen’s antics. Even fellow “OG” Bethenny Frankel, who announced she was
done with cabaret leaving the show, had a melt-down about Luann’s ego and cabaret career.
While the other New York ladies were eager to ditch Luann’s holiday cabaret show, long-time friend and newbie Housewife Barbara Kavovit attended. Unfortunately for her, she made some comments that were caught on a live mic. #rookiemistake.
The Real Housewives Of New York & The Real Housewives Of New Jersey are both iconic shows. Nobody can argue that. Regardless of which one put Housewives on the map, they’re both incredible. Once in a while, Housewives offer opinions and comments about their franchise counterparts. It may not be a full crossover, but just knowing they watch each other’s shows is GOLD.
Bethenny Frankel is such an opinionated person who’s never afraid to speak her mind. She never passes up an opportunity to throw a jab or give a blunt remark. It’s both endearing and intimidating. Unfortunately for Jennifer Aydin, she’s the latest person on the receiving end. Watch out Jen. Jennifer may consider herself hilarious, but Bethenny isn’t convinced. What Bethenny had to say about her might sting more than her precious tequila!
Real Housewives of New York is currently filming and boy, do we need it. Even though Bethenny Frankel has moved on, the East Coast ladies rarely disappoint. Season 12 will find Luann de Lesseps
drinking again off of probation and still trying to make cabaret a thing. Tinsley Mortimer will be reunited with on-again/off-again ATM boyfriend, Scott Kluth for the 80th time. Stay tuned for their 3 episode wedding arc, followed by Tinsley’s journey to the lawyer’s office.
Since B has taken a hike, a new cast member will be introduced. Her name is Leah McSweeney and by all accounts, she’s got a rep to protect. Leah has knuckle tats, y’all! Buckle up, Ramona Singer. If darling Ramona was incensed at Heather Thomson’s “Holla!” on repeat, this one is sure to put turtle time in time out. Leah has already been spotted publicly arguing with Tins and Lu at an anti-bullying event, because irony is the spice of life! Dorinda Medley actually likes Leah, for now anyway. She discussed the new cast member at BravoCon and what we can expect next season.
Where are Sonja Morgan’s 36 interns when she needs them? The Real Housewives of New York star might need a permanent handler. To go with a permanent driver. Followed by a permanent accountant. Combine all of them together and perhaps Sonja could become one responsible adult. Sonja used to be known for a good smokey eye and updo while yachting with Puff Daddy en route to Gstaad. The past few years we have known Sonja to be… kinda drunky.
Far be it from me to scold Sonja’s alcohol habits, but she seems to bring attention to her penchant for vodka sodas to the majority of filmed events. Sonja is not new to having a good time but it has gotten out of hand once or twice. In 2010, she was arrested for a DWI. In 2014 Sonja showed up to a cabaret show quite messy and managed to insult the guest performer. Speaking of cabaret, who can forget when Sonja’s dress tried to run away during a drunken performance with Luann de Lesseps. We won’t even talk about last season’s Miami, where a butler is now living under an assumed name, after dealing with Drunk Sonja. Well, Sonja’s fling with alcohol continues, this time in Philadelphia. It’s safe to say all is not well in the Gayborhood.
