Season 11 of Real Housewives of New York revolved around Luann de Lesseps, her fragile sobriety, and her life as a cabaret star. Viewers watched Luann blissfully gazing at posters for her own cabaret show. It later came to light that there were some misleading positive comments on the poster. Luann’s cabaret obsession even pushed RHONY’s Bethenny Frankel to have a melt-down.
Luann also routinely kept her
fans friends waiting at shows, while behaving as a diva should. At Luann’s holiday cabaret show, long-time friend Barbara Kavovit is the only New York Housewife to dutifully attend the performance. Unfortunately, Barbara is caught on a live mic while in the audience, telling her sister, “She can’t really sing.” Oops!
Oh, Ramona! Real Housewives of New York viewers are used to seeing Ramona Singer sometimes behave…well, rudely. It is part of her charm. Look at the way she always insists on getting the best room on RHONY getaways and orders the staff to help her unpack her belongings.
Ramona also has an issue with remembering the names of other Bravo celebrities that she has already met. And word on the street is that Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant has been the most recent victim of Ramona’s selective memory.
Real Housewives of New York star, and Queen of Cabaret, Luann De Lesseps hit a rough patch in the summer of 2018. Luann checked back into rehab for alcohol abuse after an intervention from friends, including RHONY co-star Bethenny Frankel.
One reason for Luann’s relapse was the lawsuit filed by her children and ex-husband for violating an agreement from their divorce. Luann was supposed to put half the money from the sale of a house in Bridgehampton in a trust fund for her kids. She didn’t. Oops!
Real Housewives of Orange County newbie Braunwyn-Windham Burke is full of surprises! Viewers learned that she has a strange and complicated relationship with her mother. Her mother, by the way, is a Cyndi Lauper clone from the mid 80’s.
This OC Housewife is a mom to seven kids, and is married to her college-sweetheart, Sean Burke. She has been nursing for 19 years, which just sounds unbelievable. Braunwyn whipped out a breast at dinner to show her RHOC co-stars that she is still producing milk. Classy.
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!”
