I was always fascinated by the fun and breezy friendship between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill on Real Housewives of New York. When it first bloomed back in 2016, Bethenny declared, “Carole’s amazing. I would leave the show before I would leave Carole.” Ah…good times.
Many RHONY viewers were perplexed when the friendship between the duo started to fall apart during Season 10. Was it because Bethenny had some drama with Carole’s then-boyfriend, Adam Kenworthy? Bethenny certainly seemed ticked off by Carole’s new friendship with co-star Tinsley Mortimer. Or was Carole just over Bethenny?
By now we’re probably all used to the off-camera tweaks and updates the women of Bravo fit in between seasons. I think Vicki Gunvalson has had a new face nearly every year. Some reality stars, like Lala Kent are open about their procedures. Others, like Ramona Singer, still like to pretend their 60+ year old melanin-deficient skin just magically stopped aging somewhere along the way.
It will probably surprise no one that Leah McSweeeney of Real Housewives of New York is nothing but bluntly honest about her recent procedure.
Eboni K. Williams will join Real Housewives of New York. Eboni, who is a television host and attorney, is the first Black New York Housewife.
“I’m excited to join this legendary franchise as the first Black housewife. Can’t wait to share a slice of life in this city that hasn’t been seen before,” Eboni stated. Eboni has already confirmed that the issue of race will be addressed on the show.
Last season on Real Housewives of New York, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Ramona Singer couldn’t handle the fact that Leah McSweeney had some tattoos. When Sonja heard about Leah’s tramp stamp she quipped, “That’s so when they have sex behind you, they remember who you are.”
Sonja said that it “says something negative about her.” Sonja even claimed that she doesn’t have sex with people who have tattoos,
which I highly doubt. When Tinsley Mortimer said that she has a tattoo, Sonja told her that “no one is going to f*ck” her with that there. Ouch! That’s actually so mean, but not nearly as sharp as the daggers Dorinda threw at Tinsley all year long.
Carole Radziwill hasn’t stopped talking about Real Housewives of New York since she left. After her exit, Carole used every play in the petty ex- handbook to keep the attention. She has spontaneously accused her former co-stars of doing hard drugs while filming. She went after Andy Cohen for taking Bethenny Frankel’s side during their friendship feud. And since we all remember that she had the most unnecessary grudge with Tinsley Mortimer, let’s not forget how she flamed her publicly too.
I don’t really get why Carole is still trying to get into the RHONY mix, but I’m here for all the details. And like a cat to a couch from the 60’s, she just. won’t. quit.
Real Housewives of Salt Lake City just premiered, and it is fascinating. Meredith Marks, one of the RHOSLC cast members, feels that there is a great blend of both religious and ethnic diversity on the show. Meredith is Jewish and is from Chicago. She is a jewelry designer favored by celebrities, even Real Housewives of New York alum Tinsley Mortimer.
Jen Shah, who is Bravo’s first Polynesian Housewife, appears to be the leader, and the loudest, member of the group. After all, she communicates with her staff and family with her microphone.
Welcome to The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City! Over a year since it was first announced at BravoCon, the newest Housewives franchise is finally here, and let me tell you, dear readers. The wait was worth it. In the famous words of the Mormon prophet Brigham Young, who settled the Salt Lake Valley in 1847, “This is the place.”
I feel confident in saying the premiere episode was pretty well near perfect. (Which makes sense because, as one of the ‘Wives says of life in Salt Lake City, “Perfection is attainable!”) The last time we were graced with a first episode this good was back when Real Housewives of Potomac premiered in 2016. (Though the hype surrounding RHOP was comparatively much smaller at the time. Bravo even leaned into a full slate of ads asking “Where is Potomac?” ahead of the premiere. And it took seasons of under-the-radar perfection for the show to finally be respected today as the top-tier Housewives franchise it is.)
During the Season 9 Real Housewives of New York reunion, Andy Cohen asked the cast members who they voted for.
When he got to Tinsley Mortimer, she admitted that she didn’t actually vote, and she’s still catching some heat for the statement.
