It’s not about Tom this time! Luann de Lesseps can write a trilogy about her dating history. I’d buy it too, there’s good stuff in there. Remember on that one episode of Before They Were Housewives, when Bravo delved into Luann’s stint on Italian television and hinted that she had a thing with the former Prime Minister of Italy, Silvio Berlusconi? I believe it.
Since her time in Italy, she’s gone on to marry and divorce The Count and make history on Real Housewives of New York as the cabaret performer who just won’t quit. On RHONY we’ve seen her go through a string of bad decisions in the form of Harry Dubin, pirates, and Tom D’Agostino. Just last year she was dating her agent, Rich Super. No matter what, Luann seems to always move right on. Power to her. Now, she’s confirming that she’s got a new man.
The ladies of the Real Housewives of New York take beauty and weight loss seriously. We as viewers have accompanied them for all the good, the bad, and downright quirky anti-aging trends that they’ve tried. Cryogenic freezing for weight loss? Anyone? Sonja Morgan was never one to miss out.
In the most recent RHONY season, the cast had to film post-production interviews in their homes, which didn’t always give the flawless results we were accustomed to from the pre-COVID days. But viewers noticed how healthy and radiant Sonja looked. Some attributed it to less boozing during lockdown. She did get a liquid nose job in July, but that doesn’t explain how vibrant her skin is. What is her secret?
Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.
“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.
Many people doubted that Luann de Lesseps could make a cabaret show work, but she’s had way more success with that than anyone has ever imagined. Sure, she’s not the best singer, but she knows that, and she really doesn’t care. She just loves having control of the microphone.
Now, the Real Housewives of New York OG wants to brush up on her dance moves. She wants to join the Dancing With the Stars cast for a super sweet reason that actually isn’t rooted in the cabaret… well, not completely.
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Ramona Singer couldn’t handle the fact that Leah McSweeney had some tattoos. When Sonja heard about Leah’s tramp stamp she quipped, “That’s so when they have sex behind you, they remember who you are.”
Sonja said that it “says something negative about her.” Sonja even claimed that she doesn’t have sex with people who have tattoos,
which I highly doubt. When Tinsley Mortimer said that she has a tattoo, Sonja told her that “no one is going to f*ck” her with that there. Ouch! That’s actually so mean, but not nearly as sharp as the daggers Dorinda threw at Tinsley all year long.
It’s no secret that the Black Lives Matter movement has altered the world of reality television. Whether they’ve stated it’s in response to the movement or not, Bravo has been casting shows including more women of color lately. Eboni K. Williams and Leva Bonaparte come to mind. While Leva says she doesn’t believe in race, Eboni reports that the RHONY crew will be discussing race point blank. Even some diversity of thought!
Bravo has also had to face several accusations of casting racist reality stars over the years. I can’t think of a single Housewives franchise that hasn’t been under fire for racism at some point. And they’re not alone. CBS has come under fire too. Remember Big Brother’s season 21 winner, Jackson Michie? For those who missed it, he was announced as the winner and then immediately grilled on all his racist decision making during the season. On Live TV. What a treat.
Carole Radziwill hasn’t stopped talking about Real Housewives of New York since she left. After her exit, Carole used every play in the petty ex- handbook to keep the attention. She has spontaneously accused her former co-stars of doing hard drugs while filming. She went after Andy Cohen for taking Bethenny Frankel’s side during their friendship feud. And since we all remember that she had the most unnecessary grudge with Tinsley Mortimer, let’s not forget how she flamed her publicly too.
I don’t really get why Carole is still trying to get into the RHONY mix, but I’m here for all the details. And like a cat to a couch from the 60’s, she just. won’t. quit.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City just premiered, and it is fascinating. Meredith Marks, one of the RHOSLC cast members, feels that there is a great blend of both religious and ethnic diversity on the show. Meredith is Jewish and is from Chicago. She is a jewelry designer favored by celebrities, even Real Housewives of New York alum Tinsley Mortimer.
Jen Shah, who is Bravo’s first Polynesian Housewife, appears to be the leader, and the loudest, member of the group. After all, she communicates with her staff and family with her microphone.
