Real Housewives of New York is back, and Season 11 looks amazing so far! Faster than you can yell “Jovani” at a cabaret show, the continuing turmoil between Dorinda Medley and Luann De Lesseps was brought to the forefront. After all, Luann did not take kindly to Dorinda’s drunken heckling enthusiastic support during her cabaret performance.
Of course, we all know it wasn’t about the Jovani. Instead, it was about Luannfailing to inviteDorinda’s man, John Mahdessian to the big show. Dorinda’s blood was boiling once Tinsley Mortimer spilled the beans that Luann had invited her boyfriend, Scott Kluth, the day of the performance. Now that is some questionable etiquette, Countess.
If there is one thing we have learned since Ramona Singer has been a single girl in the city, it is that she has game. For someone who was blindsided by a divorce in her late fifties, The Real Housewives of New York star has been enthusiastic about jumping back into the dating pool. Maybe a little too enthusiastic at times. Ramona loves to shamelessly flirt, even though her skills are sometimes questionable.
Apparently, Ramona has not always been as confident in her approach to men as she is now. She has revealed that prior to her divorce from ex Mario Singer, she had a brief interest in another House Husband. None other than the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’favorite husband Harry Hamlin.
Triangles are the strongest shape in the world. That’s not the case when it comes to friendship. At the end of last season on the Real Housewives of New York, the friendship of Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley was reeling from some heavy, alcohol-laced hits. That meant Dorinda went from being the only cast member to be invited to Luann’s wedding to Tom D’Agostino—remember him?—to an enemy combatant. A frenemy who heckled Luann mercilessly during her cabaret show with cries of “Jovani.”
On top of that, Bethenny has also been going through several health issues. During last season’s cast trip to Columbia, she had an allergic reaction to some fish. A few months ago, she had another allergic reaction which put her into anaphylactic shock. After, she had vision and memory issues. Now Bethenny has even more health concerns.
What is going on with the Housewives and their premiere parties lately? LVParrived at the Season 9 RHOBHpremiere party before anyone else and left before Kyle Richards could confront make amends with her. Perhaps Bravo should have the cameras rolling at these premiere parties to document all the juicy drama.
During the cabaret, Luann wore several Jovani gowns. Earlier in the season, Dorinda brought Luann to the Jovani showroom to check out dresses. Somehow that all melded together and Dorinda yelled out “Jovani” multiple times during Lu’s performance. But if you ask Dorinda, she insists, she was NOT heckling. Ummmm. What is her definition of heckling?
Last night was the season premiere of Real Housewives Of New York and all I have to say is thank goodness these ladies area back! They are quite literally the saviors of the Real Housewives franchise, and LuAnn de Lesseps and Co. definitely took us to church last night.
It’s a topsy-turvy time for all the women, who are dealing with some personal changes and challenges – like deciding to paint their entire apartment hot pink on the recommendation of an emotionally domineering unprofessional designer (aka their invisible teenaged daughter.) Gotta make amends for being a drunk loon on TV and I guess pink walls is the easiest way to do it! Obviously, I’m talking about Sonja T. Morgan and her unseen, unnamed daughter Quincy J. (I swear Quincy is actually just Sonja’s id acting up! #FreudRealTalk)
Bethenny Frankel alluded to an abusive relationship with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, on theReal Housewives Of New York City. When she suffered a panic attack on a girls trip to Columbia, some of the women were less than sympathetic to her plight. Bethenny anticipated a bitter custody battle. And she’s certainly getting it.
Some of the details of her situation are now coming to light. On Wednesday, Bethenny took to the stand and recalled instances of alleged abuse and obsessive behavior. Sadly, her daughter Bryn is often used as a pawn in the manipulation.
