The Real Housewives shows are known for many things. They love feuding over petty matters. Glam squads have become a staple. Many of them seem to purposely spit out one-liners with the hope of slapping their own quotes on a t-shirt or novelty coffee mug. Plenty of Real Housewives have tried (and failed) at singing careers.
Of course, almost all of them have become social media influencers, schilling laxative teas, subscription boxes, and fast fashion products on Instagram. And, then there are the many business attempts. We have heard about many businesses that have never actually come to fruition, like Sonja Morgan’s highly-hyped-up toaster oven or Sheree Whitfield’s She by Sheree clothing line. Then, there are the businesses that crumbled pretty quickly, like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant.
The ladies of the Real Housewives of New York take beauty and weight loss seriously. We as viewers have accompanied them for all the good, the bad, and downright quirky anti-aging trends that they’ve tried. Cryogenic freezing for weight loss? Anyone? Sonja Morgan was never one to miss out.
In the most recent RHONY season, the cast had to film post-production interviews in their homes, which didn’t always give the flawless results we were accustomed to from the pre-COVID days. But viewers noticed how healthy and radiant Sonja looked. Some attributed it to less boozing during lockdown. She did get a liquid nose job in July, but that doesn’t explain how vibrant her skin is. What is her secret?
Erika Jayne usually gets the “enigma” label on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But when you look at the literal definition of enigma, “a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand”, it doesn’t really apply to Erika. Because one thing she isn’t is complex. But you know who really deserves the title of enigma?
Dorit Kemsley is an enigma wrapped in lawsuits and rental properties. Dorit wears a coat of many colors. She is a wife and mother. She is fashion maven. But above all else, Dorit is a… DESIGNER. Need a bathing suit made of hankies? Dorit is there for you. Need a room to transport you to the Isle of Capri? Dorit can handle that too. Now Dorit is lending her gift to another venture. Friends, Dorit is answering the prayers of brides everywhere. STEP ASIDE, Vera Wang, for Dorit Kemsley has entered the group chat.
Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.
“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Ramona Singer couldn’t handle the fact that Leah McSweeney had some tattoos. When Sonja heard about Leah’s tramp stamp she quipped, “That’s so when they have sex behind you, they remember who you are.”
Sonja said that it “says something negative about her.” Sonja even claimed that she doesn’t have sex with people who have tattoos,
which I highly doubt. When Tinsley Mortimer said that she has a tattoo, Sonja told her that “no one is going to f*ck” her with that there. Ouch! That’s actually so mean, but not nearly as sharp as the daggers Dorinda threw at Tinsley all year long.
Fans are already ready for Real Housewives of New York to return. Luckily, despite a two-week COVID-19 break, filming is already underway! Spoiler: it wasn’t a cast member, but production, who tested positive for the virus. That said, the drama during filming this season seems to be closely followed. At the center of the off-season news is our newest housewife, Eboni K. Williams. There’s also rumors of Heather Thomson’s return. Hollaaaaaa.
Eboni has mentioned feeling like a third-wheel around Sonja Morgan and Ramona Singer. Is anyone surprised? Sonja just keeps descending further into a state of constant confusion. She’s harmless, but aloof. Ramona is just straight up rude. I can’t wait to see how this turns out. I’m just pleading that it’s not another year of generational division.
The Real Housewives of New York is welcoming their first black cast member in their newest season. That’s right! Eboni K. Williams is officially joining the RHONY crew! There are other rumors that Bershan Shaw may also be joining…but we’ll have to wait and see.
For now, let’s just get excited to add a Housewife who Gizelle Bryant already stans. Giz has recently made comments that Eboni will know how to cope with the likes of Corona-Ramona Singer. And lucky us! Eboni is already sharing some thoughts on the infamous Ramona-coaster.
