Months later, it’s still hard to get over how epic Andy Cohen’s baby shower was. Imagine all of those Real Housewives on a moving float. Plus cast members from Vanderpump Rules, Southern Charm, Below Deck, and Shahs of Sunset. That was the Bravo float for the Pride celebration in New York City this past weekend.
Andy gathered the most enthusiastic group of Bravolebrities. They dressed up in festive rainbow outfits. They danced, sang, and they had a few cocktails, of course.
In addition to being the patriarch, godfather, and ultimate supreme ruler of all things Real Housewives, Andy Cohen is a new dad and the host of Bravo’s late night talk show, Watch What Happens Live. As the first openly gay American late night talk show host, Andy has long been an eloquent and gracious advocate for LGBTQ+ rights.
New York City is currently hosting WorldPride, the world’s largest Pride event, spanning the entire month of June. The Bravo network is known for its support of the LGBTQ+ community. So it is no surprise that Bravo and Andy have a float in the parade this year.
Summer 2019 is not here, officially, but plenty of your favorite reality TV stars celebrated the season early. OK! Magazine hosted a Summer Kick-Off Paty in New York City. So, of course, that means some Real Housewives of New York stars attended.
Not all of them though. Ramona Singer, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan, and Tinsley Mortimer were all there to celebrate. The RHONY ladies weren’t the only Bravolebrities there though.
As an avid Real Housewives of New York fan, I live for the annual trip to the “Bezerkshires.” Dorinda Medley made Bluestone Manor “nice” for Halloween with crazy and gory decorations, including a peeping vampire. Dorinda booked massages and yoga to please Luann de Lesseps. Dorinda dealt with Bethenny Frankel insisting on having the best room in the house. She endured her guests fighting over who had the
pleasure misfortune of staying in Dorinda’s expensive fish room, where you literally sleep with the taxidermy fishes. After much squabbling, that honor went to RHONY newbie Barbara Kavovit.
And then, Dorinda brought Sonja Morgan to see a historic Morgan house in the area, which elicited a strong reaction from Sonja. Sonja did not approve of how the historic Morgan papers there were treated.
Peasants people are able to touch the actual letters. Once again, poor Dorinda tried to do something nice in the Berkshires, and everything went up in flames. Later that night, a drunken Sonja hit on bestie Bethenny, and had a sobbing meltdown about the Morgan papers. In fact, Sonja screamed, “You don’t touch the f***ing Morgan letters!”
Real Housewives of New York is back for Season 11, and I am here for the drama! The ladies kicked off the season in the Hamptons, where we learned that the Housewives are divided into two teams: the blondes (led by Ramona Singer) and the brunettes (helmed by Luann De Lesseps). The exception is Sonja Morgan, who floats between the two camps.
Tinsley Mortimer, of course, is still looking for love. She split from on-and-off boyfriend Scott Kluth. Again. During Season 9 of RHONY, Tinsley was introduced to the Chicago businessman by Housewives alum Carole Radziwell. This socialite is on a mission to obtain an engagement ring. Tinsley is not stopping until she gets one. Hopefully, she can avoid the temptation of trying on wedding dresses again before she has a commitment. That was just awkward.
Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York is already delivering drama- both onscreen and off. And, as usual, Ramona Singer is at the center of the controversy. First, she called out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump for not attending Andy Cohen’s baby shower. Then Ms. Turtle Time got busy stealing the RHONY premiere party to promote her new skincare line. Oh, Ramona!
What is going on with the Housewives and their premiere parties lately? LVP arrived at the Season 9 RHOBH premiere party before anyone else and left before Kyle Richards could
confront make amends with her. Perhaps Bravo should have the cameras rolling at these premiere parties to document all the juicy drama.
Sheesh – remember when Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills was so riveting you were glued to your seat, mouth agape? Season 8 was the equivalent of Xanax in Lisa Rinna‘s smoothie,
After seasons and seasons of LymeLies, and Munchensnoozin, and dishwares dramas, and panty-PeeKers, and Brokendown Brandi-gates, it’s impossible to recall that this show was once as exciting, raw, and authentically crazy as Real Housewives Of New York! I mean this recap of Kyle Richards‘ most memorable moments stands as a testament to the great letdown of my reality TV obsessed life.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer has had an eventful two seasons on the show. She bunked with
frenemy bestie Sonja Morgan during her first season. During that time, Sonja spread gossip that Tinsley was an ungrateful house guest. Oh, the horror!
During Season 10, Tinsley planned the vacation from hell when she brought the ladies to Cartagena, Colombia. The group endured a nightmare boat ride, squabbling at nearly every meal, and some unpleasant stomach issues. In my opinion, Tinsley shouldn’t be allowed to ever plan a RHONY trip again.
