Usually, the Real Housewives of New York ladies bring a lot to the table. However, there really haven’t been any storylines other than Dorinda Medley picking on Tinsley Mortimer (who left halfway through the season). Oh, and the alcohol consumption… all of the alcohol consumption.
One person who’s not partying as hard as the rest of them is Elyse Slaine, a voice of reason/the only cast member who can actually remember what happened the night before. However, she will not be at the reunion taping… even though it’s probably gonna be a virtual reunion taping, which should be super easy for her to be a part of logistically.
What could have been missing from the Real Housewives of New York seasonal trip to the Berkshires? It’s not over yet, but the RHONY ladies already had an explosive blowup, fueled by a copious amount of alcohol,
Luann de Lesseps massive ego, and Dorinda Medley’s unhinged behavior. Sonja Morgan was cheerfully tipsy until she brought up the lack of compensation for appearing in Luann’s cabaret. The evening went to hell quickly afterward.
Would the evening have ended differently if the guest list was altered? The perfect person would have long-standing relationships with most of the women, would be able to speak up to Dorinda, and would be desperate to get back on the show. That sounds like Jill Zarin. And two weeks ago, Jill was indignantly claiming that Dorinda had blocked her from participating in the cast trip. After seeing last week’s episode, did Jill really feel like she missed out on something?
Never a dull moment with the Real Housewives of New York ladies. They’ve picked it up after their recently low ratings. If you missed the latest episode, I highly recommend you stop what you’re doing immediately and get watching. Viewers saw the most recent fight between Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley escalate to new highs. Well, maybe not *so* new. Dorinda did recycle her drunk mugshot line and her Jovani ranting. But anyways. The argument was about whether or not Sonja Morgan should be paid for her time in Lu’s cabaret show. It turned into Lu sobbing while Ramona Singer and Leah McSweeny scoot her into a car to visit a pub. Friends forever!
The episode semi-resolved the issue when everyone woke up and basically admitted they had no idea what happened the night before. Now we’re getting Dorinda’s take after she’s gotten a chance to watch herself back. If you remember, she’s already said it’s been a tough year to watch. Sounds like this week was no exception.
Real Housewives of New York always delivers. In so many ways. The fighting, the laughs, Lady Sonja Morgan drunkenly falling off a chair at a dinner table. Even on the most boring of seasons, they seem to keep every entertained enough to continue watching. After all, what has really happened this season?
One thing we can point to is the dissolution of the friendship between Ramona Singer and Elyse Slaine. It went downhill so quickly I wasn’t even exactly sure what happened. And Elyse has admitted to not knowing what happened either. We could speculate that maybe Ramona regretted bringing Elyse into the group as a friend of. Or maybe Ramona just can’t handle one more friend in her 60-person strong girl gang. That’s a lot of people to keep up with. But maybe Ramona should have kept Elyse on her good side.
It would be an understatement to say Luann de Lesseps FREAKED out on last week’s episode. This has been the messiest season of The Real Housewives of New York ever. However, the way Lu treated Sonja Morgan was so random and so uncalled for. In all fairness, Sonja should be paid for her cabaret appearance. Luann’s ego can’t handle that, apparently. Pay the poor girl, so she doesn’t have a full breakdown!
Another big talking point heading into this episode is the new rift between Ramona Singer & Elyse Slaine. It’s looking like that friendship might be donezo. Also, why is Dorinda Medley so invested in the issue between Luann & Sonja? Doesn’t she have her own history of treating Sonja like crap? Or do we not remember the issue about the crest on the slippers?
The Real Housewives of New York cast trip in the Berkshires continues tonight. Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps get into a heated argument. Dorinda calls Luann a “drunken fool” to her face. She also calls her out for her mugshot from her infamous arrest. In response, Luann tells Dorinda “You’re a sick human being.” And at some point Luann storms out of Blue Stone Manor.
Is storming out of a cast trip Lu’s new signature move? She left the lower level of Ramona Singer’s Hamptons house earlier this season. Will she pull the same stunt when the cast heads to Mexico later this season?
Ramona Singer has been right in the middle of all the drama this season on Real Housewives of New York. You know how Ramona hates to be the center of attention!
She has slammed newbie RHONY co-star Leah McSweeney for her drunken antics. She has fought with Elyse Slaine about whether or not they are close friends.
Ramona was berated by Dorinda Medley about plans for Ramona’s birthday party, because Dorinda thought that she and Sonja Morgan were used as a social media photo op for the party planner. And let’s not forget that Ramona has ditched the ladies to attend swankier parties or go on a date.
It’s hard to escape hearing about coronavirus. No one is immune to the virus, and that includes our favorite Bravolebrities. We have already told you about Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Jennifer Aydin testing positive. Real Housewives of New York’s Ramona Singer also tested positive for the antibodies. Not to mention our Father of all things Bravo, Andy Cohen, who got COVID back in March. The whole thing is scary and hits home for so many of us. While some housewives aren’t really taking the whole matter seriously, so many are being affected.
Case in point, one more Real Housewives alum has tested positive too.
