Sonja Morgan has never been shy in regard to…. well, anything. Or at least that’s what we’ve witnessed watching Real Housewives of New York. She may embellish
often here and there when it comes to her partying stories, but when it comes to her appearance, she lets it all hang out.
RHONY viewers have witnessed Sonja get a vaginal rejuvination. She went in for coolsculpting with Dorinda Medley. We’ve seen her get facials. Sonja is all about bringing us behind the curtain when it comes to her personal maintence, but she actually does have one regret.
There’s just something so special about Real Housewives from different shows coming together no matter what the reason is. Whether it’s a joint appearance on Watch What Happens Live, an Instagram photo together, or some other event, it’s just always fun to see Real Housewives interacting.
Recently, Melissa Gorga, Sonja Morgan, and Porsha Williams collaborated on a song about something they know well: gettting work done. They even filmed a music video for the track, which included funny appearances from Dorinda Medley and Tamra Judge.
Tinsley Mortimer admits to feeling like the “kid sister” on the Real Housewives of New York. Tinsley’s age can’t be solely to blame though, she just really needs guidance on a regular basis. Any life decisions, monumental plans, or changes reduce Tinsley to a stuttering, deflecting mess. The only thing Tinsley seems to continuously have in place are her eyelashes.
And while the rest of the cast can’t seem to make sense of her plans for the future, everyone knows about Tinsley’s past. In true Sonja Morgan style, Tinsley seems to be stuck in the shadow of her ex-husband’s name. She has a hard time talking about her future without dredging up her past marriage to Topper Mortimer.
On her way to becoming a celebrated cabaret performer, Luann de Lesseps hit a few bumps in the road. And luckily the Real Housewives of New York cameras have documented all the drama. One of those bumps was marrying, and then divorcing, Tom D’Agostino after seven months of wedded
warfare bliss. Luann was arrested in Palm Beach in December of 2017 for charges including disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest with violence. She swiftly entered rehab.
But Luann violated the terms of her probation by drinking, and later agreed to a new plea deal in May of 2019. She was also sued by her ex-husband and her two children for violating the terms of her divorce agreement.
Well, it is with great sadness that I announce Real Housewives Of New York season 11 has come to an end. I am so thankful god has granted these women the serenity to accept that they WILL NOT change and will forever remain the lovable, dysfunctional, bizarro world kooks we have come to adore.
For all the drama and insults they inflict upon each Real Housewives Of New York is unlike any other franchise in their ability to brush it off, chalk it up to experience, and come back together as more than friends, but family. After so many years knowing each other on and off Bravo, this show is also unique in that most of the relationships predate the show, and will outlast it too.
Unequivocably the major subject of this reunion (and so many others) has been Luann de Lesseps. No wonder Luann has such a huge ego! It’s impossible for me to comprehend that there was a time when Lu was a ‘Friend of…’ and I’m very curious to see how that will play out with Vicki Gunvalson on Real Housewives Of Orange County (which starts next week. WOOT!)
Tonight season 11 of Real Housewives Of New York concludes with part 3 of the reunion. Unlike most Real Housewives franchises I’m always sad to see RHONY go. Even when Barbara Kavovit takes the stage!
That’s right, tonight Barbara finally gets her moment in the sun and she has the endless tan to prove it. Seriously Barbara shows up on stage looking more orange than a New Jersey housewife headed for the shore for the first time all season!
Barbara is also there to discuss her struggle to get along with the group and her friendship with Luann de Lesseps, who made Barbara feel like a second-class friend. Probably the second the cameras started rolling!
It is hard to believe the Real Housewives of New York is wrapping up Season 11–the time has gone by so quickly. Luann de Lesseps has been the focus of much of the season, of course. Her rehab stints, questionable sobriety, self-centeredness and cabaret obsession have worn on the casts’ last nerves. Sonja Morgan claims that Luann treats her co-stars like fans. Tinsley Mortimer dished on how arrogant Luann has become. Clearly, the ladies are over the former Countess’ behavior at this point.
Luann’s extreme self-focus became too much for Bethenny Frankel, who had a Luann triggered meltdown on the Miami cast trip. Bethenny claimed that Luann left the rehab she helped set up for her two weeks early and she was understandably not happy about it. During Bethenny’s terrifying tirade, she also implied that she might have helped pay for Luann’s rehab. Luann recently spoke out about the situation and cleared up the details of how her rehab was actually paid for.
Real Housewives of New York really delivered this season. Bethenny Frankel played an important role in getting Luann de Lesseps back into rehab. In May, Luann violated her probation by drinking, and was taken into custody. She agreed to a new plea deal, and her adventures as a cabaret star continued. The other New York Ladies wished that “Countess Cabaret” would tone it down and stop being so entitled.
We watched Bethenny navigate the death of her on-and-off boyfriend Dennis Shields from a suspected drug overdose. She had a nearly fatal allergic reaction to fish, and was saved by her new boyfriend, Paul Bernon.
