The second half of Real Housewives of New York Season 12 has some major changes in store for fans. RHONY viewers have watched Dorinda Medley attack Tinsley Mortimer all season. Dorinda accused Tinsley of secretly dating Tinsley’s ex, Scott Kluth, and lying to the ladies about it. Dorinda also claimed that Tinsley didn’t share her real life with her co-stars.
Then Tinsley and Dorinda blocked each other on Instagram. Now Dorinda is left without a punching bag because Tinsley announced on the show that she was leaving RHONY to move in with Scott in Chicago. Maybe Dorinda should go take boxing lessons at the gym Leah McSweeney goes to? Just saying.
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.
Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps have been treading lightly on their relationship. They had a good heart to heart earlier in the season of Real Housewives of New York that seemed to put them on the right track. But since Luann started her cabaret performances, she’s been all consumed with playing the diva both onstage and off. There’s been little time for anything other than the adoration of the Countess fans.
But publicly, Dorinda has nothing but kind words for Luann. And since Luann is currently trading in her rotund house in upstate New York for more legal issues stemming from her Palm Beach arrest.
If you’ve tried to pump that season eleven trailer of The Real Housewives of New York directly into your veins as much as I have, then I’m sure you’re well aware Ramona Singer’s infamous ex Mario Singer will make his first cameo on the show since 2011. A couple years ago, the RHONY OG discovered her husband of 22 years had been cheating on her through an article from Page Six. The woman in question was 27 at the time. However, it’s safe to say her and Mario’s affair did not age like a fine wine.
No one was happier to hear of this than
Countless Luann de Lesseps, who’d been needled by Ramona for years over her own crumbling marriage and eventual divorce from then-husband. Even though she avoided commenting on the betrayal as long as she could, inevitably Ramona filed for divorce as well in 2014. After nearly a decade away from the cameras, the sharp-tongued former househusband will return. But will they be on good terms?
The Real Housewives of New York City’s resident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankel opened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce to Jason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
The Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan reportedly took a powder to luxuriate at the Canyon Ranch Health Resort & Luxury Spa in Lenox, Mass. to escape the shade that was aimed at her from one pretty miffed castmate Bethenny Frankel. It seems Bethenny, who created her $100 million Skinnygirl low-calorie cocktail line will have some unwelcome competition from Sonja, who has her Tipsy Girl booze line practically ready to roll.
The caflama-filled situation involving the two women has now spilled over from real life to the small screen. It seems Bethenny has arranged a Mexico trip and the adventure will, of course, be fodder for the Bravo reality series. However, Sonja is reportedly fretting that her invite for the trip will mysteriously get lost in the mail. And the invite just might never reach Sonja’s hands.
Heather Thomson was at the top of her game as a New York City businesswoman, so why did she feel compelled to join the cast of a drama-filled reality show like Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City? The now-former Real Housewife had a sit-down with Forbes to explain her leap from the boardroom to the TV screen.
When Heather joined RHONY back in 2012 she already had a lengthy and quite impressive resume. She was the founding design director for the Sean “Diddy” Combs label, and had also worked as a stylist with the likes of such A-listers as Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. After nearly 20 years in the biz, Heather decided to make some moves for herself. She had been noticing that there was a dire need for shapewear that was sexy, comfy and “yummie,” so she stepped out on a limb and launched her own line called Yummie, a brand of shape wear that has a patented three-panel system. The company has now expanded to include bras, panties, denim, leggings, active and the latest and greatest, loungewear.
All season long we have had to listen to the Real Housewives of New York City’s Aviva Drescher talk nonsense about asthma, ghostwriters and her father’s sex life. Now, finally she is talking about something important — her work with other amputees.
We have all seen it coming, Bravo has been teasing it from the beginning of the season. In next week’s season finale, Aviva — for who knows what reason — removes her prosthetic leg and hurls it across a crowded restaurant. So what better way to work up to that pivotal seen, then by showing Aviva helping one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing get fitted for a new prosthetic leg. Oh, Bravo, we love your editing!
