For the most part, pretty much nothing happened during the most recent season of Real Housewives of New York. Dorinda Medley belittled Tinsley Mortimer until Tinsley quit in the middle of the season. Leah McSweeney got wasted and threw tiki torches, raviolis, and whatever else she could pick up (and toss) for attention. She’s currently sober, so, it’s fair to assume that she will not be throwing objects next season.
But, what were the actual storylines? Yes, these women are so funny, but there was really nothing happening. No wonder they decided to shake up the cast. Elyse Slaine will not be back to continue her feud with Ramona Singer. Dorinda got fired after a season with very few redeeming moments. Eboni K. Williams was hired as the first Black cast member in Real Housewives of New York history. And, now it seems like Heather “Holla” Thomson might be back. Or at the very least it seems like she filmed a lunch scene with Luann de Lesseps and Ramona.
Tinsley Mortimer’s final season on Real Housewives of New York was a doozy. During Season 12, Tinsley was the object of Dorinda Medley’s unprovoked rage. Dorinda accused Tinsley of secretly carrying on a relationship with off-and-on boyfriend Scott Kluth. Dorinda also attacked Tinsley for not being authentic on RHONY. OK, Dorinda.
Mid-way through the season, Tinsley announced that she was ditching the show and heading off to Chicago to be with her boo. I can’t say that I blame her when her mere presence incited such anger from Dorinda.
Leah McSweeney sailed through her first season on Real Housewives of New York. Yes, she was inebriated a good deal of the time, but if you wanted to find Sonja Morgan, you needed to look under a table. That said, Leah decided to embrace sobriety once again and remain somewhat conscious in an effort to dodge thinly-veiled digs from Ramona Singer.
Looks like that clarity has provided Leah with some dance skills and maybe some thinly-veiled digs of her own. Bethenney Frankel made news recently, with some disparaging remarks regarding a Cardi B song. Beth felt some type of way about the explicit lyrics of “WAP” and proceeded to get owned by half of social media. Now Leah shares her opinion of the song that forces Bethenney to her fainting couch. Leah also shares some moves you would have never seen on Dance Fever.
Like it or not, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s song “WAP” is a massive hit. If you’ve been living under a rock, WAP is actually an acronym and you can check out the explicit lyrics if you’re unfamiliar with the track.
Real Housewives of New York cast members Leah McSweeney and Tinsley Mortimer did a dance to “WAP” that went viral. However, Real Housewives of New York OG Bethenny Frankel isn’t feeling the song at all.
Raise your hand if you’re watching Bravo’s Chat Room, I’ll wait. The new nightly talk show is hosted by various Bravolebrities. Porsha Williams is representing Real Housewives of Atlanta, much to NeNe Leakes’ dismay. Hannah Berner from Summer House holds a spot. Gizelle Bryant from Real Housewives of Potomac and Below Deck alum Kate Chastain round out the rest of the cast. They dish about subjects related to pop culture and of course Bravo
Bravo fucking Bravo. As you may know, Real Housewives of New York is getting a new cast member. Eboni K. Williams is preparing for her first season and she’s the first black cast member of RHONY.
Eboni will be a huge asset in several ways. She is a lawyer, honey. So out of the gate you know she can talk. Gizelle is particularly pleased to see Eboni come on board. See, Giz has beef with Ramona Singer. Ramona shooed Giz out of a photo in July 2019 and the incident has been burned in Gizelle’s brain ever since. Not much can get under Ramona’s very renewed skin, but Gizelle is hoping Eboni manages to provide a challenge for the veteran and just maybe send the Ramonacoaster off the rails.
Real Housewives of Orange County cast member Kelly Dodd married Rick Leventhal.
Last week, the polarizing reality TV star made headlines for a controversial bridal shower gift. She received a “Drunk Wives Matter” hat as a present and wore it in photos she shared on social media. Hopefully, her wedding doesn’t cause the same level of drama on social media.
It wasn’t a surprise that Dorinda Medley was leaving Real Housewives of New York after her behavior during Season 12. I love Dorinda, but there was no excuse for her angry and nasty behavior.
She bashed RHONY co-star Tinsley Mortimer for
existing being in a relationship with Scott Kluth, and for not being honest and authentic on the show. When Tinsley announced that she was moving to Chicago, viewers watched Dorinda tell Tinsley, “I’ve got a turkey baster– maybe try and have a baby.” Not cool, Dorinda.
It was rumored that entertainment news correspondent Alicia Quarles would be the first Black cast member on Real Housewives of New York. Then, there was speculation that Bershan Shaw would join the cast.
As of this moment, it doesn’t look like either of them will be on the show, but there is a new addition to the show that has been officially confirmed.
