While fur is flying in the 90210 courtesy of #PuppyGate, the Real Housewives of New York are sifting through the ashes of #ClambakeGate. Newcomer Barbara Kavovit disinvited Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer for the sake of Luann de Lessep’s newfound sobriety. At least Barbara thought she disinvited them, but Ramona wasn’t quite sure and showed up anyway.
Dorinda stayed away. That was her choice after she refused–at Barbara’s request–to apologize to Luann for her drunken heckling at Lu’s cabaret show. It turned out Dorinda was still waiting for Luann’s apology to her for telling the press that she is an alcoholic. An argument that started during the cast trip to Colombia last season when Dorinda famously said to Luann, “Why don’t you drink some more and get arrested?”
Luann de Lesseps pleaded to “being fabulous” in her tagline for season 11 of the Real Housewives of New York. A ballsy nod to Countess Lu’s arrest in Palm Beach for being a hot drunk mess. These days the Countess’s fabulousness consists of more feuding than etiquette, so there are plenty of candidates for the crown of “least favorite.”
Luann’s conflicts with Dorinda Medley and Ramona Singer have been a focus of the season so far. Both costars angered Luann by mocking her approach toward rehab and recovery. For the moment, Luann and Bethenny Frankel appear to be on solid ground. But based on their past, there is some truth to Ramona calling it a friendship by “default.” In past seasons, Luann and Carole Radziwill were mostly “all uncool.” It was a coldness rooted in Carole’s relationship with Adam Kenworthy, Luann’s former chef and the ex-boyfriend of her niece. Luann has even accused Tinsely Mortimer of being a mean girl even though I don’t think Tins could hurt a fly. So, who is Lu’s least favorite Housewife?
The last Real Housewives of New Jersey was a revival for the show. They didn’t even need to bring in Kim DePaola, aka Kim D, to make things interesting. However, she’s still doing that. It’s just not in front of the Bravo cameras.
She still has a ton of tea to spill on her enemies Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. She discussed Joe Giudice’s possible deportation to Italy. As expected, she had a lot to say about the Teresa cheating allegations. She even came for Joe Gorga. It was a glorified family affair- with a little Ramona Singer shade thrown in to mix things up.
Pretty much every time Sonja Morgan is on Watch What Happens Live she reveals another celebrity who she’s had a… romantic past with.
Aside from that, Sonja discussed the last episode of Real Housewives of New York. She even dished on that Ramona Singer and Harry Dubin makeout session.
Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan is back in the Hamptons, folks. This time without the aid of mass transit! Tinsley Mortimer must have prayed to Jesus and Coco Chanel to take the wheel. She managed to deliver them safely to Ramona Singer’s house (that is far, far away from the highway). Fresh off a photo shoot, Sonja had her mermaid extensions and a neutral attitude on this trip. Hope she packed some Mane ‘n Tail shampoo!
Since the group is divided and she is not currently in dispute with anyone, Sonja finds herself having to navigate between the camps. One thing remains clear, whether it’s dueling restaurant invites or clambake dis-invites, none of these people can consume a meal without drama.
During the last episode of Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan pleaded with the blondes to have some compassion for Bethenny Frankel and Luann de Lesseps. Bethenny was reeling from Dennis Shields’ death just three weeks before. Luann was fresh out from her second rehab stint. As much as Sonja tried, Ramona Singer and Dorinda Medley just weren’t having it. In one of those conversations, Sonja remarked that Dennis was a smart guy.
Even though the conversation wasn’t even about the recently departed Dennis, Ramona steered it in that direction. She actually had the nerve to say, “How smart can Dennis be? I mean, he was on drugs.” Really, Ramona? Why would anyone ever say that?
Last week’s Real Housewives Of New York gave us a Mermaid Moonwalk. This week Ramona Singer terrorized a clambake by stuffing whole lobsters in a plastic grocery bag. This is why Real Housewives Of New York is the best!
“I’m not quite sure if I’m invited or not but I’m inviting myself,” shrugs Ramona, arriving at Barbara Kavovit‘s much-anticipated clambake. She believes wine is the salve that soothes all social wounds. So by bringing two bottles of rosé, PLUS a fancy pie, there’s no way she’ll be turned away. Who knew she’d leave with so many party favors.
The blondes vs. brunettes dynamics continue on tonight’s Real Housewives of New York episode. Dorinda Medley sits out Barbara Kavovit’s clambake, after she was unceremoniously disinvited. However, Ramona still attends even though she was not welcome as well.
Ramona is still at odds with Luann de Lesseps and Bethenny Frankel. Plus, she doesn’t seem to like Barbara too much. At all. Those two will definitely be screaming at each other later in the season. Right? So why would she go to this party? Oh, yeah: for the camera time. And the clams, right? Maybe Ramona just had a major craving for some seafood.
