But as we all have seen in past seasons, this is not Lady Morgan’s first foray into a black-out drunken night with friends.
Hasn’t it been a great season of the Real Housewives of New York? These ladies bring it every year and this season is no exception. Real friendships, real grudges and real forgiveness separate this show from the others. Plus, the New York Housewives do it all with humor–and a sense of ridiculousness–that is often lacking from other Housewife shows.
Often ridiculous Ramona Singer has been back to her old ways this season–meaning she is completely self-centered and expects that everyone around her should feel blessed by her presence. Of course, Luann de Lesseps’ self-absorbed post-rehab behavior has made her the target of most of the other ladies, so Ramona has received a bit of a behavior pass this season. The Real Housewives of New York reunion recently taped, however, and apparently Ramona’s season pass was revoked by Dorinda Medley.
This show I tell you. The Real Housewives Of New York ladies know how to do it right. Every episode is like going to an all you can eat buffet.
Only on Real Housewives Of New York can you have a drunken collapse over an argument about cabaret turn into political commentary on the last time Sonja Morgan probably felt relevant. Which flows into competing artists giving out free art and Ramona Singer inviting her ex-husband and new boyfriend to a party, then being forced to admit to making out with her former friend’s ex-husband in front of another friend who also hooked up with this same guy.
Ramona Singer has had an interesting season on Real Housewives of New York. She has not really had much of a storyline, but Ramona has been making her presence known on each episode by being, well, Ramona. Following her split from Mario Singer, Ramona seemed a little nicer, a little more humble. Dare I say, even a little bit likable?
This season, however, Ramona has been back to her old self-centered, thoughtless ways. Sonja Morgan thinks Ramona is very much into herself. Ramona has been called out for rude comments she made about Dennis Shields after his death. She also chose not to invite her co-stars to her birthday party–but made sure they knew all about her fabulous celebration! And she has treated newbie Barbara Kavovit like an evil stepsister. Now, Ramona has put her foot in her mouth regarding one of her co-stars–Season 11 lightning rod Luann de Lesseps.
You can really take the Real Housewives Of New York anywhere, turn them loose, and let them do their thing. They’re sort of like cats in that yeah, their best operating mode requires an overseer to sprinkle some kibbles in a dish, but mostly they’ll be their same whacky selves anywhere and everywhere. No prodding needed!
Last week’s episode ended with a wasted Sonja Morgan collapsing on the ground to Bethenny Frankel‘s commend to go to sleep. This week’s episode features Sonja getting a visit from the paramedics. Sonja probably believes this is a front to bring male strippers into the house, but au contraire – she’s actually getting some medial attention in case she is concussed.
Luann de Lesseps has been a lightning rod of controversy this season. If she is not chattering on about her cabaret show on the Real Housewives of New York, Luann is talking about her sobriety. Which is probably natural as she is enthusiastic about her new career–and she claims to be happy about her new found sobriety. As we have seen throughout the season, however, Luann’s co-stars are a bit less enthralled with the Countess’ epic self-absorption, which seems to be her newly discovered superpower.
Sonja Morgan has claimed Luann treats her co-stars like fans. Tinsley Mortimer says she has never seen Luann as arrogant as she has been recently. And Dorinda Medley has called Luann blatantly rude. During the ladies’ trip to Luann’s new round house in upstate New York, she was confronted about her me-me-me attitude and endless talk of cabaret. And all things Luann. Which makes you wonder how she really feels about her houseguests calling her out on her behavior in her own home.
In a world full of eccentric Housewives, the Real Housewives of New York’s Sonja Morgan would be at the top of the unconventional list for her oddities. From living in a crumbling townhouse to “accidentally” flashing the audience at Luann de Lesseps’ cabaret show, Sonja is an idiosyncratic character who prides herself on her peculiarities. Nothing appears to be off the table for Lady Morgan.
Always the clown, Sonja is usually willing to do anything to draw attention to herself. Often fueled by generous amounts of alcohol. Or the desire for more screen time. You have to wonder, does Sonja have any limits on what she is willing to do–or share on the show? Maybe not, as she and her co-stars recently dished on two of her strangest habits.
One of the main themes of this season of the Real Housewives of New York is Luann de Lesseps’ sobriety. Everyone has an opinion about it and her co-stars have generally been supportive of her not drinking. Of course, they draw the support line at refraining from drinking in her presence! Or even slowing down a bit. I am not mentioning any names–Sonja Morgan and Dorinda Medley. And you too, Tinsley Mortimer.
As the other ladies are still drinking as much as ever, you have to wonder how this impacts Luann. On this week’s episode of the show we watched an inebriated Sonja embarrass herself in Miami-in a big way! Is this something you should do around a close friend who is newly sober? It makes you wonder if Sonja is truly respectful of Luann’s sobriety. Luann has some thoughts about an earlier sobriety faux pas committed by Sonja–and Ms. Morgan, of course, also explains her side of the story.
