Now that Carole Radziwill is officially done as a cast member on Real Housewives of New York, there has been buzz about a possible replacement. There are reports that the newest Housewife will be someone that the longtime fans are familiar with, for an infamous off-camera appearance on the show.
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.
They finally got the cast right on this show. There is absolutely no filler. Every single one of these women has some sort of intra-cast conflict. Dorinda Medley got into it with Sonja Morganover a family crest on shoe after having a heated debate about divorce vs. the death of a spouse. Luann came at Dorinda after seasons of Dorinda defending her relationship with Tom D’Agostino. And then there’s some sort of beef with Bethenny Frankel that even Dorinda doesn’t seem to comprehend. Needless to say, there was a lot to discuss at the Season 10 reunion taping, even with Luann’s absence. How many episodes will it end up being?
Tinsley Mortimer gets put on blast for being a psycho girlfriend trying on wedding dresses behind Scott’s back, and Dorinda Medley confronts Bethenny about the tension between them. Dorinda also can’t seem to un-trigger herself when it comes to Sonja Morgan and her delusions of family crests and P. Diddy on yachts. Why can’t Dorinda just be cool? Not, like, all uncool? She needs to back that sh*t up before someone screams “TAKE A XANAX! CALM DOWN!” the next time Sonja’s harmless deer slippers are waved in front of her face.
Yesterday the news broke about Tinsley Mortimer’s (most recent)breakup with Scott Kluth. So it was perfectly awkward timing for her to be Andy Cohen’sguest on last night’s Watch What Happens Live episode. This is also on the heels of last week’s episode where she tried on wedding dresses (even though she wasn’t engaged) and FaceTimed her frozen eggs down in Florida after she forgot to pay the bill. Clearly there’s a lot to unpack with this (former?) relationship.
Luann de Lesseps is fresh out of rehab, so of course, it’s time to whisk her away for a wine-fueled weekend and cruel reminders of her failed marriage. Naturally! The Real Housewives of New York head to the Mayflower Spa in CT, where Luann learns that Ramona Singer tried to score an invite to Tom D’Agostino’s New Year’s Eve party – yup, the very one Luann had heard about in dreaded NOT-WEST-PALM-BEACH! Dorinda Medley continues to peck at Sonja Morgan about her penchant for hanging on to the past, while Bethenny Frankel comes to Sonja’s rescue. Even weakened allies are still allies, I guess?
Before they leave, Luann greets Dorinda at her new apartment – you know, the one she barely moved into before getting cuffed and booked? The PENTHOUSE, dahling! Now, she’s baking cookies and brewing coffee in an effort to keep the rehab/yoga/therapy pink cloud going. Dorinda is glad Lu’s doing so well and hopes a trip to the spa will help her stay in a safe cocoon. Um, except that cocoon contains a Ramona, so…maybe not so safe. Luann’s already heard that Ramona was trying to score an invitation to Tom’s NYE party, which is mind-blowing considering what went down last year.
