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.
It’s the end of an era. The Real Housewives Of New York have left the building, with nary a poop smear in sight. And despite the war-torn stage that hosted this bitter reunion, season ten will still go down in the history books as one of the most dramatic, comi-tragic, and just plain bananas television we’ve seen on the franchise in a long time. Goodbye, Carole Radziwill! Hello……….Jill Zarin? (Okay, I’m not speaking this into existence – just wondering! Stand down, internet.)
Who knows what next year will bring, so in the meantime let’s catch up with these brawling b*tches one more time! We pick up from last week with Carole giving Andy Cohen and Bethenny Frankel the stink eye after having been told that she bashed Bethenny on the show just as much as Beth bashed her. The argument continues with social media evidence of Carole’s friend slamming Skinny Girl, Carole bringing up Bethenny blocking her on IG, and finally – Red Scarf Guy. No! Not this dude again.
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.
It’s time for the Real Housewives Of New York ladies to sit down and throw down for three straight weeks, and part one of the reunion started off with a bang – and a spooky disclaimer. As expected, Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer faced off, and Luann de Lesseps was forced to answer question after brutal question regarding her marriage to Tom D’Agostino, which was likely on its last leg at time of filming. The setting was very Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil, and the fashions – well, they ranged from Tinsley Mortimer’s Shirley Temple ruffles to Dorinda Medley’s chic, bejeweled butterflies. Sonja Morgan decided to unleash her girls for battle, and Ramona – well. I’m not sure how to put this. Let’s just say, Mariah Carey’s stylist must be moonlighting for RHONY.
Andy Cohen opens the reunion after we are warned by Bravo that “what you are about to watch was recorded three weeks before Luann filed for divorce from her husband of seven months, Tom.” And now I feel like the Blair Witch is beginning. That was INTENSE. (Should we be scared? I’m gonna go with: Yes.) To add to the Gothic effect, Luann is wearing her wedding (reception) dress. This makes me shudder-cringe for poor Lu.
It kind of seemed like the Real Housewives of New York ladies were moving toward peace when Andy Cohen gathered them for a hug at the end of the reunion, but not all of them went in for the group hug. Bethenny Frankel sat to the side. And it wasn’t a good look for her.
Sure, I can get why hugging a bunch of people you just argued with could be like putting a band-aid on a broken limb, but it is step in a positive direction. So I can’t help wondering why Bethenny wasn’t down for the group hug. In a #TotalBethennyMove, the Skinnygirl defended her decision to abstain from the group hug.

I am still in shock after watching part one of the Real Housewives of New York reunion. The stand out moment that made me feel beyond awkward was when Bethenny Frankel alluded to Dorinda Medley doing drugs and Sonja Morgan chimed in.
I could not believe what I was watching. Even at home, my face turned beet red from the vicarious embarrassment so I can’t imagine how the people who were actually in the room felt. In a not-so-shocking turn of events, both Dorinda and Sonja made comments about that specific part of the reunion episode.

We’ve been hearing for weeks now that the Real Housewives Of New York reunion is devastating, “terrible” and that the cast will never recover from the level of vitriol. True to form, Bravo is spreading all the gory details into a three grueling episodes.
Part 1 which will air next Wednesday, August 31 at 9/8c, will focus on Dorinda Medley‘s relationship with John, which again, comes under fire from the other women, and Dorinda is forced to relive some of John’s most “embarrassing moments.” Meanwhile Luann de Lesseps is questioned about her ex Rey, who made quite a scene with Ramona Singer.

Bethenny Frankel had Carole Radziwill on her radio show again last week. The two Real Housewives of New York co-stars broadcast B Real with Bethenny from the Hamptons. They dished on everything from Carole’s sex life with Adam Kenworthy, the BRUTAL Real Housewives of New York reunion coming up and they gossiped about their co-stars – lawsuits, drugs and more!
