Somewhere a satanic cult is using Ramona Singer as their icon. The recap highlighting Ramona’s season full of atrocious behavior and excuses, followed by the flashback of SEASONS worth of Ramona shrugging that she can’t help what comes out of her mouth because that’s the way she is, finally cutting to the present day Real Housewives Of New York reunion stage where, with all the sincerity of a robot, Ramona admits that she‘s horrible… It’s all literally a study of the human brain without emotional intelligence.
I could literally spend this entire recap talking about nothing but Ramona. When have we ever come across a Housewife so comfortably tactless, callous, and clueless that she offered up DEMENTIA as an excuse for being a shitty friend. DEMENTIA people! DE-MEN-TIA. This from a woman who subsequently bragged that it was OK to be obsessed with her appearance because she works “really hard” to remain ageless. Ramona’s attitude (aka the brain of a 14-year-old social media addict) is the most ageless thing of all!
Tonight the Real Housewives Of New York reunion returns! In Part 2 Luann de Lesseps is called out over her arrogant and demanding behavior in the Berkshires – especially her infamous meltdown over the Fish Room (RIP).
Dorinda Medley is ready to move forward with Luann, but not before one last showdown over a taxidermied shark.
I am going to open this Real Housewives Of New York recap with a controversial confession: I LOVE Feelin’ Jovani! Stone me with sequins and rhinestones; I don’t care I will wear Jovani anywhere — and it feels so right!
How righteous was it for Andy Cohen to play the track during the reunion. While Luann de Lesseps mouthed the words to her own anthem. The other women avoided her eyes out of sheer second-hand embarrassment. I guess you could say they were feelin’ embarrassed, and it felt so wrong.
Anyway, now the outfits! Bethenny Frankel wore a dress that looks like a Tetris game. Which is appropriate considering how many puzzle pieces there are to Bethenny’s life and it’s near impossible to see how all the wonky angles fit together. Luann looked like she was wearing Jovani to her own funeral. Again, apropos.
The rawness of Real Housewives Of New York is just the palate cleanser we need after the drudgery of Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills. We all know this is a show where the ladies have no problem airing their dirty laundry. After washing it in the broken bidet of their crumbling mansion, of course.
Emotions run high throughout the day. Tears are cried as much as possible through Botoxed faces and accusations are made. I mean it wouldn’t be Real Housewives Of New York without
cabaret a meltdown (or 16).
The Real Housewives of New York cast recently sat down with Andy Cohen to film the Season 11 reunion. Of course, the set was standard: Andy in the middle with one couch on each side of him.
However, it could easily be Luann de Lesseps on a barstool across from a giant sofa filled with the rest of the cast. Well, minus the segment that her girl Barbara Kavovit filmed. Barbara is a very loyal Luann apologist.
Part two of the Real Housewives Of New York is upon us, and it’s time for the hostility between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill to be paraded across the stage with epic ferocity. It’s the end of an era, folks. And watching last night’s reunion also signaled the end of Carole’s giving of any f**ks when it comes to Andy Cohen and the show.
We pick up with Dorinda Medley defending her drunken slurring and JOVANI! heckling, which she claims was just a nice show of support for the business Luann De Lesseps refused to promote. Also, Dorinda maintains that she was not drunk when screaming at Luann in Colombia about “not having a mugshot!” Mmmkay. No one (not even Ramona Singer) believes a word of this. But Dorinda says she’s seeing a therapist now, which is helping her move through her pain. Will she stop drinking though? The answer is a definitive NO.
Welp, folks. Just welp. I don’t know what to think as we head into the second installment of Real Housewives of New York reunion tonight. Being Andy Cohen’s first couch corral since Southern Charm, I believe he’s feeling empowered to speak his mind instead of playing meek moderator. However the cast isn’t empowering each other, or women in general, as accusations of nasty blogs and biting comments spew back and forth. Carole Radziwell and Bethenny Frankel are close to a throw down. The only one defending Bethenny more than Andy is Sonja Morgan, but it’s the former Carole accuses of being full of shiz. Yikes!
Despite the shattered friendship, we will be treated to more Giovanni heckling from Dorinda Medley, as well as the revelation that Tinsley Mortimer’s on-off beau sees other people on their breaks. Also Ramona Singer explains the downfalls of gravity when you’ve got “that kind” of stomach bug.
The theme for this year’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion is neutral palettes and open hatred – a perfect fit for an occasion featuring this powerhouse cast of women. And last night, the ladies of NYC all lined up one by one to call each other on the carpet. But let’s be real, the TRUE theme of season 10 is pretty much “who-said-what-in-a-blog-about-whom,” and it’s not going to be long before Carole Radziwill will finally have to back her written words up with verbal sparring. Bethenny Frankel, everyone’s prime target, is ready. And last night’s Reunion, Part One, was just a warm-up.
Despite the bad behavior to come, let’s pay homage to how fantastic (with some slight misses) this cast’s entire reunion look is. In particular, I’m obsessed with Sonja By Sonja Morgan $149 frock, which kind of boggles my mind. After Andy Cohen addresses the absence of Luann de Lesseps, he tosses out some softball questions. Bethenny is still happy in her apartment, Ramona Singer just put her NYC pad on the market, Carole gives us an update on Adam – which still makes zero sense – and Tinsley Mortimer’s big news is…a haircut. Yes, this is the equivalent of a storyline for Tinsley.
