Real Housewives of New York’s Bethenny Frankel shocked us all when she decided to bail on the show. For Bethenny, the timing was right. According to Ramona Singer, Bethenny’s co-stars found out this juicy information through the press. Ouch!
So, who would Bravo pick to step into Bethenny’s fashionable shoes? We learned that Leah McSweeney apparently signed on for Season 12 of RHONY. Since Bravo doesn’t comment on casting, this hasn’t been confirmed. We also don’t know if Leah will be a full-time Housewife or Friend of the Housewives.
Isn’t it great to have Below Deck back? How beautiful is the exotic Thailand setting? I think this might be the most stunning place Below Deck has been yet. Back for more charter merriment on the high seas are Captain Lee Rosbach, prickly chief stew Kate Chastain and last year’s favorite deckhand, now promoted to bosun, Ashton Piennar.
The yacht drama has already started with a nauseatingly sick on the first charter chef Kevin Dobson. Handful deckhand Abbi Murphy and complaining third stew Courtney Skippon are sure to make for an eventful season. Such crew members make you wonder, what would Kate do if she could actually pick her own crew? Maybe from some other Bravo franchises?
While LeeAnne Locken has had some up and down relationships with her Real Housewives of Dallas costars. However, it seems like things are going a lot better with Real Housewives from different TV shows. Specifically, Erika Jayne. No word on how she feels about Erika Girardi. Lame joke, I’ve moved on.
Recently, LeeAnne dished on how Erika reached out to her during a tough time when none of her RHOD costars did. She also talked about Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer’s fight during Pride Weekend in New York this past summer. LeeAnne even theorized about why she would not be accepted by the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast.
How have you been enjoying the first weeks of the Real Housewives of Dallas? The ladies have been serving up a little drama so far and are already in the middle of a cast trip to Mexico. To be honest, I could have watched the last couple of episodes just for the incredible cliff-side setting of Kary Brittingham’s family vacation home. That, and D’Andra Simmon’s epic drunk scenes last week that give reigning Housewife champs Luann de Lesseps, Sonja Morgan and Brandi Glanville a run for their money!
One of the continuing themes of the show last season was the ongoing strife in the long-standing friendship between LeeAnne Locken and D’Andra. The two hit a jarring speed bump when D’Andra alleged that LeeAnne’s relationship with fiancé and now husband Rich Emberlin was not what it seemed. And in her confessionals last season, D’Andra made accusations of Rich being unfaithful to LeeAnne. Shockingly, that made the usually calm, cool and collected LeeAnne a little hot under her 12,000 ways-to-wear-it L’Infinity dress. Now, LeeAnne is speaking out about the situation.
Vanderpump Rules fans have watched Scheana Marie make out with Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise alum Robby Hayes on the show. And in paparazzi photos. She was even seen with a different Bachelor Nation star pretty recently.
Previously, Ramona Singer said that she would love to have the lead role on The Bachelorette. She was (probably) joking, but I know it would be must-watch TV. However, former Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman has a different Real Housewives of New York star in mind to take on the task.
Do we really expect anyone on a Bravo show to get along? No sir! Real Housewives of New York might be down one protagonist, but that doesn’t mean everyone will magically stop arguing. Gone are the days where viewers expect to see lavish homes and luxurious vacations, not spoiled by errant fighting and drunken spats. Fortunately Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer have already been spotted having words at an anti-bullying event. Now new cast member Leah McSweeney is supposedly cutting her teeth in the East Coast Fight Club.
Luann de Lesseps recently headlined a benefit called STOMP Out Bullying, so naturally a shouting match occurred. We already know Dorinda and Tinsley had a blowout during the soirée, regardless of the inappropriate environment. Now with reports saying Leah was involved in the melee as well, Luann admits she has also had a run in with the new kid on the block.
Since her arrest in December 2017, Luann de Lesseps’ life has been action-packed. The Real Housewives of New York star’s very public meltdown triggered a series of events that changed her life in ways she could not have imagined. Following her arrest for charges ranging from disorderly intoxication to battery on an officer, she headed straight to rehab. For many people, accepting a plea deal and quietly serving out the terms of their sentence would have been the end of it.
Not for cabaret star Luann! Since her intial brush with the law, Luann has admitted to continuing to use alcohol, has been to a second stint in rehab, was charged with violating her probation and was sued by her children for alleged trust fund shenanigans. Luann has finally completed the terms of her probation, but continues to waffle on her future sobriety. Now, Luann is questioning whether or not she should have been arrested at all, even claiming she was bullied during her arrest.
Good morning, class! Today’s Word of the Day is: Ironic. The definition of ironic is, “happening in the opposite way to what is expected, and typically causing wry amusement because of this”. And what do we love more than a little “wry amusement” to get us through the day? Tinsley Mortimer and Dorinda Medley from Real Housewives of New York are going to teach us a lesson in irony.
Tinsley and Dorinda have shared a fairly basic relationship. When Tinsley first appeared on RHONY, she was living at
Grey Gardens Sonja Morgan’s exceptionally clean townhouse. When Tinsley began having issues with Sonja, Dorinda defended her. More recently, Tinsley sided with Dorinda during last season’s #clambakegate. Dorinda was uninvited to a party unless she apologized to Luann de Lesseps. Basically viewers have not seen a lot of animosity between Tinsley and Dorina in the past. All of that might change this year, as Tins and Dor have been spotted engaging in a war of words. Here’s your irony, it was at an anti-bullying event.
