Our time in the Big Apple is over folks! Another season of The Real Housewives of New York is officially in the books. At times it was a disjointed mess, but no matter what the city that never sleeps is also the city that always delivers. Dorinda Medley’s anger issues are going to be a prominent focus for this final installment. The ladies are trying so hard to get her to face her issues head on, but she’s not having it.
Ramona Singer and Dorinda might be at the end of the road in their friendship. Neither has been impressed with the way the other has acted this season. 2020 must be the year for 20 year friendships to fall apart. It’s a shame that it has to happen like this. However, maybe for some of these friendships it’s for the best. In this kind of environment you can really see who has your back behind your back. Ramona is not a good friend. Period.
Despite a season of The Real Housewives of New York that felt unfocused and fueled by alcohol, this reunion is DELIVERING. All of the ladies have brought their A game for the first in person reunion in months. Dorinda Medley has been in the hot seat from the beginning because of her drinking and anger issues. The way she’s gone after Tinsley Mortimer has been jarring to say the least. What did this girl ever do to her?
Leah McSweeney is fed up with Ramona Singer. She can’t handle the double standards anymore. NEITHER CAN WE LEAH. We understand. The way Ramona has come for Leah at every turn about things she ignores in others is gross. What’s the difference? Please tell everyone Ramona. The world is all ears. It’s Dorinda’s final season, but shouldn’t it be Ramona’s as well?
The ladies of the Big Apple have made it through another season. It’s been a wild and wacky season, and many are still crushed by the news of Dorinda Medley’s departure. If this reunion is truly her swan song on The Real Housewives Of New York, she’s going down swinging. However, she has a lot to answer for, starting with her despicable treatment of forester cast mate Tinsley Mortimer.
Hopefully Dorinda Medley isn’t the only wife in the hot seat at the reunion. Fingers crossed that
Corona Ramona Singer is held accountable for her reckless behavior in the wake of a global pandemic. With Leah McSweeney on the cast this season, that shouldn’t be a problem. Ignorance is bliss when it comes to Ramona, but someone needs to pop that bubble. It’s also the first in-person reunion in months, so anything can happen.
Even though Dorinda Medley has been getting on my nerves this season every week when I watch Real Housewives of New York, it was still shocking to hear that she is gone from the show, especially since the current season didn’t even wrap yet. It seems premature to announce a casting change, but here we are.
We all saw how much more fun the ladies had when Dorinda wasn’t around. It was getting so frustrating to watch Dorinda mock the women and refuse to listen to what they were telling her. It just wasn’t entertaining, so it’s not surprising that she’s gone from the show, and, as per usual, I’m not buying that she “walked away” to “start a new chapter.
The Real Housewives of New York cast members gathered in Long Island, New York today to film the season 12 reunion IN PERSON! As we all know, this is a big deal (to reality TV fans) during the coronavirus pandemic among all of the virtual reunions.
They are probably still arguing at this point, but we did know some things about the reunion before even before the filming finished up. Elyse Slaine said she was not asked to be a part of the taping. Leah McSweeney is ready to face off against Ramona Singer. Tinsley Mortimer flew in from Chicago (and subsequently quarantined) in order to safely tape the reunion. Oh, and Ramona has an issue with Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan’s manners, which is just rich coming from Ramona of all people.
The news recently broke that the Real Housewives of New York cast will gather with Andy Cohen to film the Season 12 reunion in person in Long Island. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast just filmed their reunion, but it was via zoom, which makes sense since Andy is based in New York.
Elyse Slaine confirmed that she will not be a part of the taping, but fans have been wondering if Tinsley Mortimer will be there in person. She left the season halfway through to move to Chicago, so it was assumed she would show up virtually. However, it has been reported that Tinsley is already back in the Big Apple, following quarantine guidelines before the reunion.
Well, it is with great sadness that I announce Real Housewives Of New York season 11 has come to an end. I am so thankful god has granted these women the serenity to accept that they WILL NOT change and will forever remain the lovable, dysfunctional, bizarro world kooks we have come to adore.
For all the drama and insults they inflict upon each Real Housewives Of New York is unlike any other franchise in their ability to brush it off, chalk it up to experience, and come back together as more than friends, but family. After so many years knowing each other on and off Bravo, this show is also unique in that most of the relationships predate the show, and will outlast it too.
Unequivocably the major subject of this reunion (and so many others) has been Luann de Lesseps. No wonder Luann has such a huge ego! It’s impossible for me to comprehend that there was a time when Lu was a ‘Friend of…’ and I’m very curious to see how that will play out with Vicki Gunvalson on Real Housewives Of Orange County (which starts next week. WOOT!)
Tonight season 11 of Real Housewives Of New York concludes with part 3 of the reunion. Unlike most Real Housewives franchises I’m always sad to see RHONY go. Even when Barbara Kavovit takes the stage!
That’s right, tonight Barbara finally gets her moment in the sun and she has the endless tan to prove it. Seriously Barbara shows up on stage looking more orange than a New Jersey housewife headed for the shore for the first time all season!
Barbara is also there to discuss her struggle to get along with the group and her friendship with Luann de Lesseps, who made Barbara feel like a second-class friend. Probably the second the cameras started rolling!
