Sonja’s current season on RHONY is interesting, to say the least. She’s had a rough year that includes business setbacks and some major shade from her so-called friends Ramona and Luann de Lesseps. She surprised probably everyone by going from talking about multi-cultural fish in the first episode to being the only one to really understand Eboni K. Williams’point of view on issues about race and microaggressions. And Eboni is returning the favor, swooping in to show Sonjarita some empathy and help her on her quest to find Mr. Right. And I’m living for it.
Veteran viewers are tossing names around of a possible line-up and confidence is high some of the original players will return. Exactly who is coming back and who is coming on board is still kind of a mystery, though it appears we have one confirmation. Recently kicked out of the Kardashian friendship circle, Larsa Pippen has been spotted with cameras she doesn’t pay for following her around. Now it looks like Kim K.’sloss is our gain because we have our first official RHOM lady. Thanks Kim, you really shouldn’t have.
We could all use some kindness, but the last place you expect to see it is on Bravo. But damn it, call your friends and family because this story managed to melt even my hardened, dark, barely beating heart. Go ahead and grab a tissue because the sun might get in your eyes or you could be at risk of suffering a spontaneous allergy attack after this one. Bravo and the shows on Bravo are many things to many people, but sometimes it’s everything to one person. Today we meet Miss Bella Pape.
Bella loves reality television and all that it implies, her favorites are the Real Housewives and she’s quite familiar with the franchise. But Bella isn’t binge-watching shows on a rainy day, she was born with a disorder that has kept her in long-term care for most of her life. In 2020 Bella was hoping to attend BravoCon, but it was cancelled due to the pandemic. The event has returned in 2021, but Bella’s health is deteriorating and traveling is no longer an option. So the troops rallied and brought BravoCon to Bella, thanks to Real Housewives of D.C. alum, Mary Amons.
Lea is married to a very high-powered attorney and actually met her husband when she was a juror on a trial. Naturally she may take more than your average level of interest in Housewives who are involved in legal disputes. After months of watching people take down Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne, Lea is viewing the entire ordeal with a sympathetic eye. Recently, Lea attempted to use her powers of influence in an effort to build support for Erika’s current plight. To be fair, Lea is used to rooting for the defendant underdog.
Pretty much everyone is familiar with Wendy Williams. Even if you don’t watch her show, her antics have been splashed across the media. She had a messy divorce. She passed out on live television. And she’s big on spreading gossip. In theory, her background sounds like a Housewife resume. All she really needs is an enormous fraud case to seal the deal.
Miami came to an end in 2013 for reasons we really don’t know. Andy Cohen implied it was due to the death of Marysol’s mother, Mama Elsa. He also said ratings had dropped off towards the end of the third season, so it was given the axe. Thankfully, reboots have become a thing and Miami could get another shot. Word on the street is Bravo is bringing back the franchise and returning us to palm trees and blue seas. But, will this be like re-gifting or getting a whole new present?
Being immune to all pestilence is a gift not many of us have, because we aren’t the damn Avengers, but if you take a gander at certain Bravolebrities you would assume they are exempt from diseases. Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps has come under fire for traveling to Miami to party without a mask, but according to her, “precautions were taken“. Now RHOM is back in the media but not for a premier date. Another star has fallen victim to being inconvenienced by Covid.
Last week, Real Housewives of New York star and former nurse, Luann de Lessepscaught some flak about being seen at a party in Florida. She was tripping the light fantastic in all her glory without the benefit of facial protection. Naturally people had some kind words of advice for Luann, seeing as RHONY recently dropped cameras because a cast member tested positive for coronavirus. But you know, Lu is cool, not all, uncool. So, she has a perfectly good explanation for her lapse in judgement. Alexa, play Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before.
