Sonja still regrets the end of her dynastic marriage. So after they return to the lesser manor, she starts drinking like she’s making up for Luann de Lesseps. Drunk Sonja greets newcomer and latecomer Barbara Kavovit outside where in addition to insulting Dorinda’s apartment, Barbara hates on the fish room before setting foot inside. It’s not a great look on a houseguest. Or a new cast member.
Dorinda Medley thought she was making it nice by decorating her house like cheesy haunted house, but the Fish Room is no halloween theme! Those are $15,000 taxidermied sword fish (why? how? so confusing?) and it’s a privilege to pass out drunk before their glassy-eyed stare! Also they are there all. year. round. Come Easter they wear bunny ears, come Christmas twinkly lights, come St. Patty’s day a leprechaun hat, but come Halloween they get to just be their creepy selves. Kinda like the Real Housewiveswhen they enter the Berkshires – all their most idiosyncratic tendencies and behaviors come out in full force and they are their most selves.
Take Luann for instance, throwing a haughty fit after learning she was placed in the Fish Room instead of ‘Hannah’s room’ at the front of the house.
Luann also wanted a massage, which Dorinda says she’ll handle. All of Dorinda’s hospitality is for naught, however, when Luann learns she’s sleeping in the fish room, where she’d last awoken with an epic hangover. Watching Luann’s reaction makes Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer cackle like hyenas.
She asked Dorinda Medley to arrange yoga classes during their visit to the Berkshires as if Dorinda is running some sort of resort. Maybe Lu just missed the group meditation at rehab? Not only that, but Lu also asked Dorinda to book massages. Why didn’t she just stay at a hotel instead? And then, after demanding all of those requests Luann stormed out because of her room assignment. Looking back on the (absurdly dumb) fight, Sonja Morgan blames Ramona Singer for instigating.
If so many people are saying it, it has to be true. Now, Dolores Catania, someone who doesn’t talk shit about anyone (for no reason), is coming for Ramona. Dolores always keeps it classy. Until she whips out her inner Patterson. Watch out, Ramona.
Last night the Real Housewives Of New York headed to the Berkshires and they weren’t there 15 minutes before drama erupted over who has to wake up in the shark room. Ladies – Dorinda Medley made it nice, the least you can do is start out behaving!
Ramona Singer is actually looking forward to the Berkshires this year, because she thinks she’s “good with everyone.” Apparently she’s forgotten that Bethenny Frankel has the memory of an elephant when it comes to other people offending her. And that Luann de Lesseps has an elephantine ego that will not be satisfied with peanuts. Perhaps Ramona’s disaster date gave her a new frame of reference for the people in her lives?
Speaking of dates, Bethenny is headed to Boston to visit the guy she’s dating. I’m confused: at the clambake Bethenny was just considering going on her first post-Dennis date, with a man she’d met before Dennis passed, even though she was engaged to Dennis? Now she’s in a full fledged relationship which has “really heated up” since Dennis died?
Anyone can see Tinsley is living her life in a suspended adolescence. So, maybe it doesn’t seem like a fair fight to involve her in anything. But also, she doesn’t seek out conflict or show emotions in conflict situations. Sure there’s the occasional screeching about frozen eggs, her dog Bambi, or a one ScottKluth at the door, but does Tinsley have strong opinions about the group dynamics? Why yes, actually. Especially when it comes to defending Dorinda.
