Jill Zarin On Real Housewives Of New York

You guys… I’m actually excited about this but Jill Zarin is back on tonight’s Real Housewives Of New York! Jill in small doses is sort of a delight and I’m actually glad we get to catch up on her and see how she’s doing after Bobby’s passing.

Of course, lots of other stuff also happens before Jill returns to our screens with a red-headed fury! Tinsley Mortimer runs away with the circus to escape her mother Dale Mercer haranguing her about her break up with Scott Kluth. Being back at the Big Apple Circus makes The Tinz turn into Sonja Morgan as she mourns her former life as New York’s premiere socialite, which spirals into wailing over her split from Scott. 

RHOA-NeNe-Leakes

What do you get if you are rude, crude, and socially unacceptable? Well, if you are employed by Bravo, apparently you get rewarded. Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes, might be finding out that treating people in a manner, usually reserved for those who run over your dog, is actually great for the bank account.

In Season 11 of RHOA, NeNe took “playing the victim” to levels even Vicki Gunvalson has never reached. Not only did she make the entire season about herself, she participated in physical brawls, turned on her BFF, and blamed her husband’s cancer on his infidelity. Along the way, MeanNe lost friends, fans, and some might say her mind in certain cases. But hey, whatever works, and seemingly her nasty attitude worked in her favor.

Sonja Morgan Thinks That Bethenny Frankel’s New Boyfriend Is “Her Soulmate”

Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel’s life has been a crazy ride. Her contentious divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy was finalized in 2016. But the drama lives on as Bethenny and Jason battle over custody of their daughter, Bryn Hoppy. During the legal proceedings, we learned that Bethenny accused her ex of harassing her using Facetime. Sigh. Bethenny also dealt with some recent health scares, and nearly died because of her fish allergy.

The Skinnygirl mogul suffered the loss of her on-and-off boyfriend, Dennis Shields, in August of 2018. Dennis died of a suspected drug overdose. During Season 11 of RHONY, viewers have watched Bethenny grapple with her loss. Bethenny revealed to co-star Dorinda Medley that Dennis had proposed to her, and even gave a ring to Bryn. That is so sad! But Bethenny believes that Dennis is giving her signs from the afterlife that she should move on. Bethenny did just that, and her bestie Sonja Morgan couldn’t be happier for her!

Luann de Lesseps - Real Housewives Of New York RHONY

It has been a hard knock life for Luann de Lesseps lately. No one will ever forget the Real Housewives of New York star’s arrest Christmas Eve 2017 in Palm Beach.  A wild evening that resulted in charges of battery on an officer, disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest with violence and crimes against a person.  A one-woman game of thrones!

Luann also had legal troubles closer to home. Call it Game of Homes!  Luann was being sued by her ex-husband Count Alexandre de Lesseps for allegedly violating a divorce agreement and stealing from their children Victoria de Lesseps and Noel de Lesseps.  The suit arose from a sale of the family’s home in Bridgehampton for $8 million dollars and the star’s purchase of a smaller house in Sag Harbor for $3.1 million. As per the divorce decree, Luann was to set up a trust for the children funded from half of the Bridgehampton sale.  Apparently, she never did.  

Bethenny Frankel Dishes On OG Housewives; Says “I Really Feel For Them”

It’s not easy being a Real Housewife, and some of the “OG” Housewives have been through the wringer recently. Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes has been dealing with her husband Gregg Leakes battle with colon cancer. She also evicted Kandi Burruss and a then-pregnant Porsha Williams from her closet. NeNe ripped a camera man’s shirt and may have pulled off Porsha’s belt during the incident. During the reunion, it came out that a producer was allegedly injured by NeNe. That’s a lot of drama over a closet. In the end, NeNe destroyed her longtime friendship with Cynthia Bailey because Cynthia invited former peach-holder Kenya Moore to a product launch.

On Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, this season is all about “puppy gate” and how Dorit Kemsley’s pup from Vanderpump Dogs ended up in a shelter.  This saga has positioned Lisa Vanderpump against all her fellow Beverly Hills Housewives. On a personal level, Lisa has been struggling with the death of her brother. The epic show-down at Villa Rosa between Lisa, Lisa’s husband Ken Todd, and former bestie Kyle Richards was upsetting to watch.

Dorinda Medley - Real Housewives Of New York

Last night’s Real Housewives Of New York had it all: turtle time, flying trapezes, sexually harassing birds, meltdowns at premiere galas, breakups, brawls in the spa, makeups at the spa, ghosts of Sonja Morgan‘s past, and wrap dresses. You know, just an ordinary episode! (Seriously how is this one of the lower rated Housewives franchises?!)

Sonja is just strolling down the street with her coffee and her trendy patterned tights when a limousine window rolls down and a voice calls out from the dark, “Hey hooker…” Sonja doesn’t even flinch, she just keeps doing her Mary Tyler Moore strut with a distracted smile until the voice gets more persistent. But it’s just Bethenny Frankel! Sonja laughs because she assumed it was one if the regular people who call her a hooker during her morning coffee run! Where is Sonja getting her coffee from?

Luann de Lesseps

Tinsley Mortimer is one of those Housewives who tends to fly under the radar. The Real Housewives of New York star generally doesn’t stir up a lot of drama and for the most part she is not really the target of the other ladies. Sometimes, you get the sense that she is holding back the real Tinsley. Who is this elegant socialite that appears to have it all, but also seems to have more depth than would appear on the surface?

We know that Tinsley lives in a hotel, loves lacey dresses and was once the star socialite of the New York City society world. She has also shared her sometimes difficult past, including an arrest and a divorce, as well as her longing for a baby. This week we learned more about Tinsley’s father, his drinking and his sad accidental death. Tinsley admits to having unresolved feelings about her father and none other than the Countess Luann de Lesseps played counselor to her.

Tinsley Mortimer - Real Housewives Of New York

The Real Housewives Of New York never fail to disappoint! They cycle through emotions faster than teenage girls, even though they’re all, for the most part, menopausal women.

We open in the Berkshires where Sonja Morgan is having a meltdown over Dorinda Medley touching the sacred MOOOOOORGAN LETTERS, which really should be under plexiglass like the Guggenheim Bible and the first thong Sonja ever washed in her bidet. “She didn’t desecrate them!” Ramona Singer yells in an attempt to calm Sonja down, but Bethenny Frankel is the expert in psychotic breaks.

Bethenny has a lifetime of experience, after all, so she ushers Sonja out of the room, grabs her face, and performs an exorcism. I also think Bethenny must have hypnotized Sonja with one the 32 diamond rings she’s wearing, because from that moment forward Sonja became obsessed with The B. Back at the table, Sonja is ready to resume partying. Everything’s fine!
