They made so many headlines when there was gossip about the cast reportedly getting lost at sea. Ramona Singer was photographed in a wheel chair. The whole trip just sounds like the perfect storm of fun and drama.
There are certain photos that have become the norm when scrolling through Instagram feed in the summer. Just like your friends, plenty of reality stars are hitting the beach, lounging by the pool, posing on pool floats, and kicking it on boats. And just like your friends, plenty of them made sure to document those occasions and share photos on Instagram- of course.
Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Danielle Staub showed off her bikini body while enjoying some time on a boat. Teen Mom star Leah Messer took her three daughters to the beach. Potomac Housewife Monique Samuels showcased her baby bump in a swimming pool.
Does Bethenny Frankel even know that she’s in a “feud” with former bestie Carole Radziwill? Carole can’t type the Bethenny insults fast enough, yet Bethenny hasn’t said much about it. Maybe if Carole started rocking a Skinnygirl logo, Bethenny would pay some public attention to her.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, the cast went speed dating. A man with a red scarf purposely went to that event just so he could talk to Bethenny. Ramona Singer went out of her way to get that same red scarf-wearing man a tequila. Meanwhile, Carole’s friend (who orchestrated the event) invited that guy with the intent of setting him up with Carole. Oops.
During last night’s episode the
self-proclaimed lifestyle expert dished on her dating tactics, Ramona Singer’s attempt to be at Tom D’Agostino’s party, and of course that crest-induced drama with Dorinda Medley.
What do you get when you mix jailbird cabaret with speed dating with mothballs? The Real Housewives of New York, of course, which is still hitting it out of the park every week this season. I don’t know whether it was Luann de Lesseps singing in her classic Tony Bennet baritone in front of a penthouse piano, Sonja Morgan touting her cabarlesque (no spellcheck can help us here, folks) skills to actual, legitimate Broadway heavyweights, or Ramona Singer attempting to robotically flirt with/stalk men in scarves. But there was a Hangover meets Laurel & Hardy vibe to this week’s episode, which is a welcome gift after last week’s dry spell on Bravo.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
Luann de Lesseps is very busy these days with her cabaret show and this means The Countess doesn’t have time to dwell on the drama! But she does take a few minutes to reflect on the last episode of The Real Housewives of New York. In her latest blog, she shares her thoughts on Ramona Singer‘s photo faux pas and Tinsley Mortimer‘s wedding dress shopping.
First Luann makes sure to let Carole Radziwill know that rehab wasn’t some dream vacation. “After my experience in Florida, I can assure you that there is a huge difference between a spa like the Mayflower and rehab! Carole Radziwill thinks it would be “heaven” to stay in a facility for 28 days talking it out, yet if I had to choose, I’d pick the spa every time!!!”
After ten seasons on the Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona Singer is still keeping us entertained. The RHONY star is fancying herself as a bit of a peacemaker on the show this season and reveals how she’s helping to soften the ladies during times of conflict. She also shares her favorite filming moment and talks about the stress of filming a reality show. And, among other things, Ramona reveals what she is looking for in an ideal man these days. Read on for all things Ramona, including her thoughts on that cast boat ride from hell.
On the Daily Dish podcast, Ramona shares whether she misses filming the show after a season wraps, “I love my downtime. We basically film five months. The reunion really is only one day, and that’s in July. So we really we have off seven months. Not a bad gig.” Does she find herself anxious to get back to filming? “it’s a double-edged sword because when we work, it’s really intense and can be emotionally jarring because we’re seven women that like each other but at times we really go at each others’ throats, so it can be quite emotionally disturbing. So, when we’re not filming it’s kind of nice to take a break from everyone and just see them now and then. You’re under different kinds of business pressures. It’s a good balance. When we start filming again, am I excited about it? Absolutely. I have fun when I film with all these ladies and I always say I’ll continue to do the show as long as I have fun because you have to love what you do to be good at it.”
Just like most dedicated television watchers, reality TV stars also get star struck when they meet their favorite celebrities.
