Someone calling Ramona Singer “rude” isn’t shocking news at this point. Her Real Housewives of New York co-stars have called her out for her behavior so many times. She kicked Gizelle Bryant out of a photo. Margaret Josephs said she wasn’t nice to fans. The list goes on and on. Dolores Catania has made similar comments.
Now, Real Housewives of New York alum Kristen Taekman is claiming that Ramona was so out of hand that they started to run out of locations to film the show.
Even though Real Housewives of New York Season 12 just ended, fans are already looking ahead to Season 13, specifically in regard to casting. Tinsley Mortimer left in the middle of Season 12. Dorinda Medley got fired after a rough season belittling Tinsley, reminding Luann de Lesseps that she has a mugshot, and refusing to listen to anyone who disagrees with her.
Leah McSweeney held off on filming Season 13, hoping to get a pay raise for her second season. It’s unclear exactly what happened in terms of dollar amounts, but Leah did confirm that she will be back for another season. Elyse Slaine, who isn’t technically a cast member, shared that she will not be on the show next season. So, that leaves Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, and Luann de Lesseps. What’s going on with them?
Our time in the Big Apple is over folks! Another season of The Real Housewives of New York is officially in the books. At times it was a disjointed mess, but no matter what the city that never sleeps is also the city that always delivers. Dorinda Medley’s anger issues are going to be a prominent focus for this final installment. The ladies are trying so hard to get her to face her issues head on, but she’s not having it.
Ramona Singer and Dorinda might be at the end of the road in their friendship. Neither has been impressed with the way the other has acted this season. 2020 must be the year for 20 year friendships to fall apart. It’s a shame that it has to happen like this. However, maybe for some of these friendships it’s for the best. In this kind of environment you can really see who has your back behind your back. Ramona is not a good friend. Period.
Holla! I will admit that I loved Heather Thomson when she joined Real Housewives of New York during Season 5. She was smart and quick to call anyone out on their bullsh*t. I loved seeing her friendship with fellow RHONY newbie Carole Radziwell blossom.
Viewers may recall watching Heather try to help co-star Sonja Morgan launch her toaster oven line. And who can forget Heather refusing to invite Ramona Singer to the cast trip to London? But after three seasons, Heather was tired of the fake drama and exited the series.
Luann de Lesseps catches a lot of flack for her mentions of the cabaret on Real Housewives of New York. She has had no problem sharing her excitement for achieving a lifelong dream of hers.
Of course, she has to thank the Real Housewives of New York fans for supporting this dream and attending her shows, but reality TV wasn’t her first stint in entertainment. Before she became a Real Housewife of New York, Luann was an Italian television star. And, at another point in her life, she was actually working as a registered nurse. That’s quite the mix there.
Since no one is going to a cabaret anytime soon thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, Luann has revisited her old profession. And, no, she’s not making cameo appearances on Italian television. She’s actually helping out someone in need by applying her nursing experience.
Wowowowow. These Real Housewives of New York reunion episodes are already making me question if I can live without these ladies in the coming months. I mean, except for Elyse Slaine who, despite her best efforts, was a total bust. Rest easy. She won’t be back.
After Bethenny Frankel dipped the night before filming for season 12 began, I think we’re all on edge about next year. So far we know that Dorinda Medley is “taking a pause.” Whatever that means. Better yet, Leah McSweeney will be returning. She may have secured a well-deserved pay raise too. From the sounds of it, we will be seeing her for season 13 with some heavy pockets and…a new face?
Bethenny Frankel quit Real Housewives of New York just one night before filming. Her absence was definitely felt. Don’t get me wrong, Real Housewives of New York always makes me laugh, but this season was definitely lacking compared to the others.
Then, Tinsley Mortimer quit in the middle of the season after finally finding her voice
and an interesting storyline. Recently, the news broke that Dorinda Medley will not be on the show next season. Of course, she’s acting like she left on her own. Most likely, she got fired, but now, Andy Cohen is trying to spin it like she’s just taking a break. Then after all of those losses, it was reported that Leah McSweeney refused to film unless she got a pay raise for her second season. It was also reported that the cast started filming the next season… without Leah.
So, what’s going on?
Real Housewives of New York fans weren’t ever given a proper introduction to Elyse Slaine. She just sort of kept popping up during Season 12 and was listed as “Ramona Singer’s friend.”
