The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 reunion episodes have been very emotional and we still have one more episode left. A majority of the drama has been centered around Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill’s broken relationship with Andy Cohen stuck in the middle, both literally and figuratively. Unfortunately the true star of the season- Luann de Lesseps– could not film the reunion because she was in the middle of her second rehab stint, but Bethenny and Carole brought more than enough drama to the table.
Apparently mirror selfies are still going strong. New York Housewife Tinsley Mortimer recently posted one with her on-again-off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth. So it’s safe to assume that these two are “on again.” Real Housewives of Orange County new girl Gina Kirschenheiter also shared a photo of post-glam session look.
Below Deck Mediterranean cast member Jamie Jason showed off her bikini body with a mirror selfie of her own. And then there’s Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent, the queen of the mirror selfie, serving up a super casual (and most likely super expensive) look.
Part two of the Real Housewives Of New York is upon us, and it’s time for the hostility between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill to be paraded across the stage with epic ferocity. It’s the end of an era, folks. And watching last night’s reunion also signaled the end of Carole’s giving of any f**ks when it comes to Andy Cohen and the show.
We pick up with Dorinda Medley defending her drunken slurring and JOVANI! heckling, which she claims was just a nice show of support for the business Luann De Lesseps refused to promote. Also, Dorinda maintains that she was not drunk when screaming at Luann in Colombia about “not having a mugshot!” Mmmkay. No one (not even Ramona Singer) believes a word of this. But Dorinda says she’s seeing a therapist now, which is helping her move through her pain. Will she stop drinking though? The answer is a definitive NO.
Welp, folks. Just welp. I don’t know what to think as we head into the second installment of Real Housewives of New York reunion tonight. Being Andy Cohen’s first couch corral since Southern Charm, I believe he’s feeling empowered to speak his mind instead of playing meek moderator. However the cast isn’t empowering each other, or women in general, as accusations of nasty blogs and biting comments spew back and forth. Carole Radziwell and Bethenny Frankel are close to a throw down. The only one defending Bethenny more than Andy is Sonja Morgan, but it’s the former Carole accuses of being full of shiz. Yikes!
Despite the shattered friendship, we will be treated to more Giovanni heckling from Dorinda Medley, as well as the revelation that Tinsley Mortimer’s on-off beau sees other people on their breaks. Also Ramona Singer explains the downfalls of gravity when you’ve got “that kind” of stomach bug.
The theme for this year’s Real Housewives Of New York Reunion is neutral palettes and open hatred – a perfect fit for an occasion featuring this powerhouse cast of women. And last night, the ladies of NYC all lined up one by one to call each other on the carpet. But let’s be real, the TRUE theme of season 10 is pretty much “who-said-what-in-a-blog-about-whom,” and it’s not going to be long before Carole Radziwill will finally have to back her written words up with verbal sparring. Bethenny Frankel, everyone’s prime target, is ready. And last night’s Reunion, Part One, was just a warm-up.
Despite the bad behavior to come, let’s pay homage to how fantastic (with some slight misses) this cast’s entire reunion look is. In particular, I’m obsessed with Sonja By Sonja Morgan $149 frock, which kind of boggles my mind. After Andy Cohen addresses the absence of Luann de Lesseps, he tosses out some softball questions. Bethenny is still happy in her apartment, Ramona Singer just put her NYC pad on the market, Carole gives us an update on Adam – which still makes zero sense – and Tinsley Mortimer’s big news is…a haircut. Yes, this is the equivalent of a storyline for Tinsley.
Does a birthday even count if it isn’t documented on social media? No, not these days. Even reality TV stars are all about celebrating a birthday with an Instagram post.
Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian all gathered to celebrate Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday. Kylie also kept the celebrations going with a birthday trip to Las Vegas.
Not even a cheesy cabaret show can mend the broken friendships of this season’s Real Housewives Of New York, but damn if Luann de Lesseps didn’t try! Or, maybe not. Because she didn’t invite Dorinda Medley’s main squeeze to her big show, which created rift #426 between them. Instead of battling with Carole Radziwill again, Bethenny Frankel finds herself at odds with Ramona Singer, who calls Beth out for not supporting women. Or woman, in Ramona’s case.
Before we get to Luann’s show, we pop into rehearsal where the Countess is hashtagging-and-friending her bootie off at the microphone. Ben Rimalower cheers her on, even when Sonja Morgan and her oft-stripping self is discussed. As long as Luann doesn’t have to play snatch guard tonight, she’s fine with Sonja pulling whatever antics she has in mind. And I think we all know what those antics are. (Please see footage of Sonja showing her ass on upwards of 12 episodes, seasons 3-10.)
Season 10 of Real Housewives of New York has been the gift that keeps on giving. Pretty much every episode from this year is must-see TV. Luann de Lesseps had her infamous run-in with the law and a rehab stint. Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel had a major falling out. Dorinda Medley and Sonja Morgan argued over the difference between the death of a spouse and a divorce. Oh and that whole family crest drama.
Ramona Singer claimed (several times) that Bethenny “does not support other women.” Tinsley Mortimer had relationship ups and downs and a tear-filled FaceTime call with her frozen eggs while wearing a wedding dress. And then there’s that infamous Colombia trip.
