According to Ramona Singer all the ladies on Real Housewives Of New York are going through a transition, and have found themselves single. Which is true. Before Dorinda Medley dumped John Mahdessian, she was the only woman on this show in a relationship. Unless you count Tinsley Mortimer dating “Bruce.”
Who does Tinsley think she’s fooling? Bruce was a made-up man to shut Dale Mercer up and hopefully make Scott Kluth jealous.
Anyway, it’s fall in New York and the weather is wonderful so all the ladies are meeting outside in various parks to take walks and gossip. If this were a RomCom they’d keep bumping into each other on random benches and eventually fall in love. But this is Real Housewives, so if they ran into each other on random benches they’d actually just find the other person talking shit about them to their other friends, then they’d fall into hate.
It was a little surprising to see Elyse Slaine do a confessional interview during the latest episode of Real Housewives of New York. Who even knew she was a cast member? We got no introduction to meeting her. Zero backstory. Truthfully, she just seemed like Ramona Singer’s level-headed plus one.
So, what happened? Were she and Leah McSweeney fighting for that full-time spot on the show? Apparently, not. According to Elyse she was never even supposed to be on the show. So, no, she did not get demoted. Instead, she claims that production just kept asking for more Elyse. Let’s let her explain the situation herself.
Sometimes, life is a matter of perspective. Instead of being “stuck” at home because of the pandemic, it might feel better to view the situation as being “safe” at home instead.
Of course, what’s going on the world right now should not be minimized, not by any means. Nevertheless, a lot of people with “non-essential” jobs are at home. Some are homeschooling their children. Others have turned their living rooms into an office. Most of the people who are reading this have been watching a lot of reality TV shows- in the background, while fulfilling responsibilities, of course. Well, Bravo knows that fans are looking for premium programming. And, no, I’m not trying to re-watch an episode of a show that I just watched last week.
For the most part, Leah McSweeney has been welcomed by the Real Housewives of New York stars. However, she did feel like Sonja Morgan set her up when she sent her a matching grey sweats set to wear to her fashion show. All of the other ladies got sequined gowns and cocktail dresses. Meanwhile, she wanted Leah to dress like she was running out to the corner store to grab a gallon of milk. Sure, athleisure is really in and Leah has uttered the word “streetwear” more times than I can count, but there was definitely a difference between the outfit Leah got and the looks the other ladies got to wear.
Was Sonja being shady on purpose? Or did she just not think that far ahead. Leah thinks it was shady, but admitted that it’s hard to stay mad at Sonja. She’s probably right about that, but a little fun shade is OK. The women have done way worse on this show than giving someone a free sweats set.
While the Real Housewives of New York ladies have embraced Leah McSweeney with open arms, it seems like Tinsley Mortimer is going through the longest new member hazing of all time. Dorinda Medley has been calling her out all season. Ramona Singer made her bring dishes inside after lunch in the Hamptons. None of the veteran Housewives seem to have Tinsley’s back.
With that said, I wouldn’t invite those women to my wedding if I were Tinsley. Then, again, if she does somehow manage to stay on the show after moving to Chicago with Scott Kluth, she would probably film the wedding; i.e. she’d probably be forced to include some people she’s not so fond of.
Even though she got unceremoniously demoted and ultimately fired from Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson is trying her hardest to make sure that we still associate her with the Real Housewives franchise. She insists that she “started” this whole thing when she has always been a cast member and never had an role in the show’s production.
However, Vicki isn’t the only one who thinks she’s the one behind the Real Housewives phenomenon. Real Housewives of New York OG Ramona Singer swears that no one watched Real Housewives of Orange County and that Real Housewives of New York is the show that made the franchise a big deal. Vicki and Ramona have debated this back and forth in various interview comments. And Vicki is still keeping this conversation going, of course.
Oh, Real Housewives Of New York, you never fail to disappoint. Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile? Well it’s you girl[s], and you should know it!
Love may not be all around, though, but the opposite of love and just as passionate, is hate which is aplenty! Especially when it comes to Dorinda Medley‘s passionate animosity towards Tinsley Mortimer. Seriously – whaaaaat? Hating Tinsley is like hating the lone sock floating around the laundry forever without a mate. Hating Tinsley is like resenting an earring back that doesn’t quite fit snugly to any of your earrings. Hating Tinsley is like going to Costco and getting stuck bad samples.
What I mean is that none of these things should generate strong enough feelings to reach the intensity of anger Dorinda has towards Tinsley. Because what Dorinda truly hates is that her life has gone on without Richard andis no longer the fairy tale it was.
Bethenny Frankel has left the building, or has she? The former cast member chose to exit the Real Housewives of New York City in August 2019. She later said that the show is uninspiring, while cast member Luann de Lesseps believes the air is now more breathable without such a large presence as Bethenny. While Bethenny was known to be a fan favorite, she also caused polarizing opinions – some loved her and followed her loyally, while others did not have the highest opinions of her.
Bethenny and Luann have had a chaotic past. Bethenny has previously stated that Luann sleeps with everybody, and also called her a “sicko” during former seasons. Afterward, when Luann was arrested and then went to rehab due to her drinking, Bethenny began a crusade to be by Luann’s side. Luann has admitted that Bethenny was a great support for her. Currently, it seems as though there is a battle of the egos and the friction has resumed again.
