The Real Housewives Of New York are back with a vengeance! Except for Bethenny Frankel. That B is outta the picture… Well, not entirely. The episode opens with the ladies reacting to the news that Bethenny has quit. For some this is a blessing; a ripping off of the bandaid to reveal fresh, chemical peeled skin. That would be fellow veterans Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps‘ feelings.
For others who were in Bethenny’s Skinnygirl denim hip pocket, they’re sad to see her backside. That would be Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley. Sonja, who wants to hoard everything in her emotional basement of horrors – including toxic friendships, is mourning being abandoned.
So that’s that – end of an era until the next time Bethenny needs a career boost! Real talk though: Thank you Bethenny for donating during the coronavirus crisis. A + for B strong.
I am so happy that Real Housewives of New York returns this week! So, what can we expect? Bethenny Frankel is out, and Leah McSweeney is in with her very own apple.
Luann de Lesseps is back to drinking responsibly (we all hope.) And I am positive that there will be lots and lots of cabaret. But does the tension between Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley continue after last season’s Angel Ball disaster?
Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer has been keeping busy during this coronavirus outbreak. Ramona is self-isolating in Florida with her daughter, Avery Singer, and ex-husband, Mario Singer.
Unfortunately, in March, Ramona was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Since she has a weakened immune system, Ramona is grateful that Mario has been lending a helping hand. Mario even cooks for the family. Did you really expect that Ramona would cook during her self-isolation period? No way!
Most live talk shows are on a hiatus in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. However, there are some that have just switched things up by filming separately at home via video chat. After a bit of a break, Watch What Happens Live returns tonight. And, yes, Andy Cohen will still be hosting, despite his own Coronavirus diagnosis.
Watch What Happens Live will be taped from the privacy of Andy’s apartment. But he will still have some guests on the episode, also taping remotely from wherever they are quarantining.
We are all eagerly anticipating the return of Real Housewives of New York next week. Aside from seeing all of our favorites back on TV again, we will “meet” new RHONY cast member Leah McSweeney.
In comparison to the other Real Housewives shows, the Real Housewives of New York cast doesn’t change too often. We all saw Barbara Kavovit struggle when most of the cast refused to welcome her into the group. That was a total fail. How will Leah fare in comparison? She’s hinted about it in some recent interviews.
I still cannot believe that when Season 12 of Real Housewives of New York debuts on April 2, it will be without Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl mogul announced in August of 2019 that she would not be returning to the show.
Of course, Bethenny’s decision did cause some drama with her RHONY co-stars. Ramona Singer claimed that the cast found out that Bethenny was leaving through the press. Ouch!
What a trip Tinsley Mortimer has been on The Real Housewives of New York City. The spoiled little rich girl entered the scene looking for one thing. She was desperate for a husband and a baby. Tinsley may have found at least one of those things thanks to Scott Kluth. Tinsley better thank Carole Radziwill for that one. The two have been so on again and off again over the years, but they’re finally engaged!
Will they truly walk down the aisle? Can Tinsley and Scott stay together long enough to make it to the wedding? Given their history, it’s a fair assumption to think it won’t happen. The relationship has played out on the show, so naturally, her costars have an opinion about this. However, nobody may be more opinionated than Ramona Singer, and she has A LOT to say about it.
