After years of very public feuding, Brandi Glanville, Eddie Cibrian, and LeAnn Rimesall united as a family to support Brandi and Eddie’s son when he graduated from culinary school. This trio has come a long way from calling each other out in interviews and social media.
It’s always unexpected to see those three in one photo. Another surprising photo that popped up on Instagram was Jill Zarin hanging out with 50 Cent. She even captioned it with “Always a great time with @50cent.” Always? Have Jill and 50 been in the same room multiple times? What’s the story there? Did he buy a rug from Zarin Fabrics? I can’t help being so curious about the behind-the-scenes backstory on this photo.
The Real Housewives Of New York are back in the city and on the other side of that diarrhea situation – but that doesn’t mean the sh*t is done exploding. This week finds everyone recovering from the hellish adventure they just shared together in Cartegena, mainly by throwing parties and showing off renovations. Housewives style!
The first event is Ramona Singer’s big reveal in the Hamptons. Her home is officially renovated and de-Mario’d, courtesy of Ramona’s maven-like bargain hunting. It does look gorgeous, and Ramona basks in her new digs as Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, and Sonja Morgan come over to ooh and ahh. “I did everything online!” chirps Ramona as Luann channels her former Countess, side-eyeing the simplicity (i.e. non decorator-approved) of the home. “This is the reveal?” she wonders. “Revealing.” At least Ramona did Jill Zarin a solid and promoted her rugs on air!
Now sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful ship – that started out as Housewives fun and ended up as sh*t. The Bethenny! The Countess too! The Dorinda – and her kniiiiiife. The Ramonacoaster, The Carole/Sonja/Tinsley train…here on CLUSTERF**K ISLE!
Last night’s episode was iconic before it even aired. The Real Housewives Of New York nightmare on the high seas will forever live on in Bravo history and virtually needs no introduction. So, let’s just dive right in (ha). It’s the morning after the multi-argument dinner from hell, and everyone convenes for breakfast for a nice relaxing boat ride, and Dorinda Medley is still loaded for bear. Although everyone else is worn out from the drama, Dorinda snaps at Luann de Lesseps when she snaps at everyone about her Countess title being a valid “stage name.”
Guys, this Cartegena trip is not going well. The Real Housewives Of New York continue their journey to the center of Bethenny Frankel’s emotional meltdown this week as she continues to unravel. Dorinda Medley offers support in the best way she knows how: by letting Bethenny cry, then getting drunk and picking a fight with Luann de Lesseps at dinner. While their argument picks up steam on one end of the table, Carole Radziwill faces off with Bethenny on the other. Basically, it’s a boom operator’s nightmare, what with microphones only able to pick up on one Housewife clusterf**k at a time!
Before we get to the big fight, we pick up right where we left off: Bethenny in the kitchen with Dorinda, crying and shoving her head into the freezer. WTF?!? After rejecting Luann’s comfort, Bethenny unloads her worries on Dorinda. She’s in a custody battle with her ex, she’s moving to a new apartment, her life is too scheduled, and she’s at war with her (former) best friend. Basically, Bethenny’s life can be summed up as #ThisIsACrisis.
The former besties know where all the bodies are buried and they are getting vicious in these arguments. It’s bound to get even worse at the reunion. Even so, they aren’t the only people fighting on this show.
It is so confusing to follow Tinsley Mortimer’slove life. One second she’s dating Scott Kluth. The next second they are on a break. Then they are on vacation together immediately after. The only consistent thing about their relationship status is the knowledge that their relationship status is very inconsistent.
Bethenny Frankel called last night’s episode “The Crying Game” before it aired, which left me to wonder how this trip would differ from any other? I mean, tears, drinks, and stabbing oneself in the hand are just par for the course when The Real Housewives of New York hit the shores of any foreign country, right? As it turns out, this Colombia trip did involve a lot of crying, but it also involved ONE AMAZING WIG courtesy of Luann de Lesseps. So all was not lost!
The South American destination of Cartegena didn’t know what was coming until it saw the Ramonacoaster rolling up in a friggin wheelchair, but the ladies didn’t waste any time making their presence known. After packing montages, the group somehow makes it past airport security to officially leave the country. This is, we assume, an auspicious start.
Okay, let’s do this. We start with Ben Rimalower and Billy Stritch walking Luann through her talking-while-singing-while-snapping version of “Money Can’t Buy You Class.” Luann is taking her upcoming cabaret show #CountessAndFriends very seriously – so seriously, in fact, that she’s bringing Sonja in on the act. Because when you think, “I need this act to be classed up a little bit” you naturally think of the woman who lounges in her own filthy bed surrounded by plastic tarps as she sniffs yesterday’s underwear. Enter: Lady Morgan.
