Longtime Real Housewives of New York viewers know that Ramona Singer is not shy when it comes to being cheap. Last season, Dorinda Medley was miffed when Ramona made her and Sonja Morgan take Instagram photos with a party planner in exchange for a free birthday party for her “50 best girlfriends.”
Then, at that party, she had each guest donate money so she could purchase a Gucci purse. For a woman who brags so much about being a successful businesswoman, none of that actually lines up with what she’s been spewing for years. Nevertheless, it’s Ramona’s consistent inconsistencies that have kept her on reality TV for over a decade. Oh, and her rudeness. Just when you thought that Ramona couldn’t be any more rude, she does something else that makes you shake your head. Not that she cares. At all.
We’ve seen Real Housewives (and former Housewives) on Below Deck charters, including Cynthia Bailey, Alexis Bellino, and Kary Brittingham (pre-Real Housewives of Dallas). What would it be like if they were actually cast members, working long hours and wearing khaki skorts? It would certainly be a short-lived experience, but it would probably be interesting to watch.
We’ve seen Bravolebrities pretend to be waitresses at SUR, but there’s no faking it on one of these Below Deck charters. They really do have work to do. Could you imagine a Real Housewife rocking one of those polyester polo shirts? Below Deck alum Kate Chastain sure can. She’s even come up with some names to be her second and third stew.
Don’t get me wrong, I love when a Real Housewife makes an effort to contribute to her show. But, sometimes, a Real Housewife tries too much and it’s just not, well, “real.” During the first reunion episode of Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, Lisa Barlow said she was upset with Heather Gay because the audience was upset with how Lisa treated Heather. Well, how is that Heather’s fault?
Lisa has exhibited some mean girl tendencies. And, well, the viewers adore Heather because she is relatable and seems to be very sincere, despite what Lisa claims. Lisa had no clue she was messing with a fan favorite. And just when you think that you couldn’t love Heather even more, she is also a Real Housewives viewer, just like the rest of us and she has her favorites.
Production on Real Housewives of New York has shut down in response to a coronavirus diagnosis for the second time.
The first time around, a crew member contracted the virus. This time, a cast member has coronavirus.
Over the years, the ladies of Real Housewives of New York have grown up a lot. Sonja Morgan went from being the ex-wife of JP Morgan Chase bank guy to an International Fashion Lifestyle Brand. Luann de Lesseps went from The Countess to Cabaret star. Ramona Singer went from being an out-of-touch narcissist to an out-of-touch, narcissistic real estate agent. In just 12 seasons!
While we have witnessed countless ups and downs, one thing remains – these women will always share Harry Dubin. Harry is like the Slade Smiley of New York City. He was once married to Aviva Drescher. Since they divorced, he and Sonja have had an on and off thing for years. During this time, Harry and Luann have also hooked up. Most recently, Harry and Ramona were spotted making out. It’s a picture you can’t unsee. Oh, and he’s also been linked to Kelly Bensimon. Put simply, Harry is a pig RHONY staple.
By now we’re probably all used to the off-camera tweaks and updates the women of Bravo fit in between seasons. I think Vicki Gunvalson has had a new face nearly every year. Some reality stars, like Lala Kent are open about their procedures. Others, like Ramona Singer, still like to pretend their 60+ year old melanin-deficient skin just magically stopped aging somewhere along the way.
It will probably surprise no one that Leah McSweeeney of Real Housewives of New York is nothing but bluntly honest about her recent procedure.
Real Housewives of New York star, Sonja Morgan, has kept herself quite busy with self-improvements since the latest season wrapped. Fans had noticed that Sonja was a bit out of sorts during season twelve of RHONY. Sure, Sonja is known for over-partying, but she didn’t quite look her normal-self either. So, Sonja decided to remedy the situation.
Since the show wrapped, Sonja got a liquid nose job, and a lower face lift and neck lift. Thankfully Sonja’s finished look was amazing, and did not turn out to be the usual housewife plastic surgery disaster. Sonja also worked some internal magic, giving herself an extra glow to her skin. She took lots of vitamins, and relieved herself three to four times a day. Good thing she has the extra time! Amid all that work, Sonja also made time during this Christmas season to help others as well.
