Oh, they’ve descended upon the sunshine state again… Shouldn’t Florida have an ordinance keeping the Real Housewives Of New York out?!
In cold New York city Ramona Singer has convinced everyone that vacationing in a fabulous Miami mansion will be just the thing to unify the group after Upstate. Round houses have a way of backing everyone into their own corners. Also Luann de Lesseps is spinning on an axis around her own sun, orbiting her own ego, and declaring that she’s not a diva at. all, so maybe a return to Florida will put things in humbling perspective for her!
The Real Housewives of New York cast recently sat down with Andy Cohen to film the Season 11 reunion. Of course, the set was standard: Andy in the middle with one couch on each side of him.
However, it could easily be Luann de Lesseps on a barstool across from a giant sofa filled with the rest of the cast. Well, minus the segment that her girl Barbara Kavovit filmed. Barbara is a very loyal Luann apologist.
Real Housewives of New York star Tinsley Mortimer has been very vocal about her desire to become a mother. Who could ever forget Tinsley trying on wedding dresses with her mother Dale Mercer and FaceTiming her frozen eggs?
Tinsley hoped that she would get the family of her dreams… until she and Scott Kluth broke up. Now, her costars and her mom are putting the pressure on her to make decisions if she wants to have a biological child.
The Real Housewives Of New York certainly got a dud of a cast trip this year because they’re heading to Miami again! Not only is that a lame destination – as compared to getting capsized in Columbia – but they’re forced to stay stateside courtesy of Luann de Lesseps‘ probation.
I guess last time the Real Housewives Of New York traveled to Miami Bethenny Frankel unleashed evidence that Luann’s then-fiance Tom D’Agostino was cheating, so that was exciting, I guess. And then there was all the drama with Aviva Drescher‘s dad which went down in Miami a few seasons back. This time there is no Aviva, but there’s certainly Harry! Always Harry Dubin. Always Tom. Always dick, but never with a capital D.
Luann de Lesseps is in full cabaret star mode this season on Real Housewives of New York. Perhaps you have heard that Luann got into a bit of trouble in Palm Springs in December 2017? She was arrested on several charges, including battery on a police officer and disorderly intoxication. She then went to rehab twice. Unfortunately, Luann made an encore appearance in a Palm Beach courtroom on May 23 after violating her probation. The courts are not a cabaret, Luann.
Luann’s RHONY co-stars are tired of being treated like fans. Luann was irate when Bethenny Frankel left her 11 pm Halloween night performance because Bethenny had a babysitter waiting. Never mind that Luann’s performance was late, and she neglected her guests by primping for what seemed like hours in a mirror while her co-stars wondered if the Countess would grace them with her presence. I would also like to point out that Luann’s performance was set in an insane asylum. Make of that what you will.
The mama-bear in Bethenny Frankel was definitely triggered when Luann de Lesseps questioned her reasons for leaving the Halloween night performance early. Of course, the show was running a half hour late, but regardless. The Countess delivered somewhat of an apology but the other Real Housewives of New York, including Bethenny, are questioning the sincerity of it.
It’s a bit ironic to be questioning Bethenny’s parenting given Luann’s legal issues with her own grown children. And many seasons ago, Luann’s son Noel de Lesseps was begging her to spend more time with him. That was back when she was really a Countess, but just as self-absorbed.
No one’s personal life is off limits when it comes to Real Housewives of New York. Significant others can become a storyline whether they are on camera or not. Like that unfortunate business of Tinsley Mortimer and Scott Kluth. The car he sent over from Chicago spent more time onscreen than its owner. Yet Scott’s name was on everybody’s lips for quite a while.
Dive back far enough into the show’s history and you might stumble upon speculations that Luann de Lesseps had an open marriage with the Count. Bethenny’s Frankel’s relationships may have had gray areas and some castmates were quick to pass judgment.
There is no question that Dorinda Medley is living her best life right now on Real Housewives of New York. She managed to put her differences with cabaret star Luann de Lesseps in her rear view. Last season Dorinda drunkenly heckled Luann at Luann’s cabaret debut by screaming “Jovani! Jovani!” So, Luann banned Dorinda from Barbara Kavovit’s clam bake.
When Dorinda once again hosted the ladies at her home in the Bezerkshires, she graciously accepted Countess Luann’s list of requirements. Dorinda arranged yoga and a massage for Luann. When Luann had a temper tantrum because she didn’t want to sleep in the infamous fish room, Dorinda plopped Barbara in the room instead. Dorinda spent $250,000 to display these taxidermy fishes. Don’t these ladies realize how hard Dorinda worked at making this room nice?
