Real Housewives of New York Recap: Jealous Bitches on a Boat

rhony luann

 

On tonight’s RHONY Bethenny will join in with Sonja and Ramona on the plans to derail Luann’s engagement. Because no one stand for Luann to be happy. And well, there is this reason as well.   Spoiler alert! Luann and Tom are still going strong. They have been doing a lot of globe trotting this summer as well as boating on the Hudson regularly. They just returned from a week long river cruise through Switzerland, Austria and Hungary.  They also stayed at the Four Seasons in Vienna. Sorry bitches, Luann is winning. Which Carol will we see tonight?

Bethenny fucks up yet another trip. Since Bethenny can’t go to Hawaii, they are going to Palm Beach, Florida. Dorinda thinks Miami is two hours away from NYC. That seemed wrong to me so I Googled and it is just a little bit over three. That still doesn’t make much sense since it is a two hour flight from Atlanta. I obsess about weird stuff. I also HATE the Miami airport.  Click the link for my horror story.

Tom has a house is Palm Beach and Luann plans to stay with him in Palm Beach. The girls are not happy with that plan. It is a girls trip. Jules parents live in Boca Raton. Because, Jewish.  She is going a day early to visit her parents.

Ramona is mad at Luann for a story in the press that said she was friends with benefits with Tom. How is that her fault?

Bethenny has get together with Dorinda, Ramona and Carole to update them on her vagina.  Then of course they bash Luann for being happy. Bethenny is going to skip Luann’s yacht party in Palm Beach and go straight to Miami. What would these women talk about if Luann hadn’t gotten engaged? More uterus talk by Bethenny?

RHONY Luann tom
Jules is super happy to see her Dad healthy again.  Wow, Jules’ health drink was picked up by Whole Foods? This sounds like an actual lucrative business. When she calls home to check on the kids, her five year old son Jagger is crying because his dad is never home.  Guess he was out banging the shrink instead of spending time with his kids.

Luann is smiling and happy on the yacht. At least Jules is happy for her. Ramona wants to start conflict with Luann at the party. Tom will be there so there will be drama. Ramona is pissed that Luann met Tom when he was out with someone else. Why does she care so much? Anyone with eyes can see that Luann and Tom are very happy together. Sonja of course has point out her yacht, that she doesn’t have, is better than the one they are on.  The yacht couldn’t be more beautiful. Ramona is already bossing the crew around and expecting them to unpack for her.

Dorinda is being a bit of a pot stirrer tonight. But at least she is nice to Luann. Carole is once again on her best behavior now that Bethenny is not on the scene.  Bethenny is in Miami talking about ….Luann and Tom. Bethenny says that she got a bunch of texts that she has to share with Luann that will cause her to dump Tom. Oh, Bethenny, do shut up.

Sonja is dressed in a really sexy black revenge dress. This will not go well.  Where did they get these people to do the girls’ hair? At what point in history did women stop being about to style their own hair?

Next week: Ramonja  ruin the party. Bethenny presents Luann with text that seem to indicate that Tom is cheating on her.

    Carol’s gray roots were showing in the scene where the girls were getting their hair done. Looked like she was completely gray.

    • Betty

      I don’t believe Carole is really happy for Lu. She know Bethenny and Ramona will do the dirty work so she can just sit back and enjoy and not get her hands dirty.

      • Minky

        Well, the gray roots thing is very fitting. Carole has now shown her true colors in more ways than one.

        I know a lot of people here say that they like Carole as long as Bethenny isn’t there to be a bad influence. I say bollocks to Carole. She’s shown how shady she is and how quick she is to be a mean girl/Heather (like the movie Heather’s w/ Winona Ryder). It didn’t take much for her to make fun of Jules’ eating disorder and call her an idiot.

        For me that’s the worst kind of cowardice. Not the kind where you run like the wind or censor your own behavior because you’re scared. I understand that kind. With Carole it’s cowardice combined with a deep, festering malice.

        I mean the kind where someone sits back with a bowl of popcorn to watch someone get abused and tortured. The kind where there’s an enjoyment in watching others suffer at someone else’s hands and even welcoming someone to come along and do the dirty work, while being too chicken shit to actually do it first-hand. And then claiming, after the fact, to have had nothing to do with it. In that regard Bethenny is better than Carole. At least she doesn’t second-hand hurl abuse and screech at people. She does it herself right to their face.

      • oh Sheila! you a good Judy

        Betty I believe the same thing. I think Carole started up her “high road” the second Beth grubbed together some dirt to kick on Luann’s happiness. I reckon it’s tough to be slick when you’re so full up of hate.

      • Meri

        With friends like these you don’t need any enemies. Each and every one of them is nasty in her own special way. I could not tolerate these women for an hour let alone an entire season of filming and pretending to be friends. Bethenny is either whining about her bleeding or she’s slut shaming someone. Dorinda is a huge pot stirrer who is pretending not to be jealous of the others, Ramona is just plain nuts and this season, Sonja seems to be the one with the most sense (which is really scary). I don’t like Luann and never have and her relationship with Tom won’t last because he is a player. Of course, so is she so they might make a deal and stay together because it’s easier than being single in a jungle like NY. MIddle aged women are obviously outnumbering men a LOT because they all seem to date the same person. It’s all rather incestuous. You are very brave for writing these blogs TT. Thank you.

    • Jessica white

      she is turning 53 next month

      • Sierra

        Carole sucks I think her man is over her, the novelty of her cash has worn off and the surgery has gone too far. Spot on Minky! She also, ive noticed doesnt like to work, she was fortunate enough to have a publisher and then just ditched her deadline to get some dick. Then, the crazy bitch who didnt even have a kitchen is writing a cookbook… not the strong independent woman she claims to be.

    • Rusty Star

      Most of our born before 1965 do have completely Gray Hair…LOL..Thank God for Hair Dye!!

      • SLM

        I was born in 1976, but every woman in my family goes prematurely grey, so hair dye is my BFF! 😂😂😂😂😂😋😋😂

  2. Ruthie

    I know I’m in the minority here, but I feel bad for Sonja. It seems she had feelings for tom and is trying to cover it up by saying it was just friends with benefits to save face. I think to him it was just that but to her it may have been more since she’s lonely and he was her go to guy for companionship and intimacy. I could be way off though. Romana is just ridiculous though.

    • To me, Sonja is just sad she didn’t get the same question from Tom that Lu locked down. Sonja wishes she inspired a rich and sexy playboy to propose to her. Sonja needs to be genuinely happy for others’ happiness. Karma rewards the generous.

      • Ruthie

        That’s a good point. I guess we will know at the reunion how it all plays out.

      • beauxblue

        If Sonya has any hope in attracting a rich guy she needs to get her financial house in order. Lu understands finances, she was smart enough to shack up with Sonya until she caught a rich guy, she wasn’t encumbered.

      • no such thing as karma — some people just win

    • Sue

      Ruthie, I had the same thought. I think Sonja truly did have feelings for Tom and is hurt by it all. Hard to be happy for Lu when your emotions are involved.

    • Sierra

      I felt bad for her until that sly comment about her yacht, ive had friends like that when something good happens to you, they remind you of how much better they are. Who needs enemies with friends like that?! Lu is a shark and paper chaser, lest we forget her self narrated biography where she talks about her crabs, she is white trash, he is a player and it will not last because her motives were insincere and calculated, bitches like that dont win. But she shoves it in the chicks faces who slept with him, dont be surprised they find you a threat. And lastly, Tom is not sexy not hot he is a short bald man, and none of these bitches would have givin him a second thought if there were 20 million reasons to flock to him. Its like sonjas man that purposed to her and lu left with him at that party,,, HARRY DUBIN aLL over, gross.

      • Nila

        Whoa…did you miss the part where it was a Bravo special not a self imposed autobiography? Who was suppose to narrate it?

        Harry never proposed, he handed her a ring which seemed like it was all for tv because since Aviva was cut, has anyone seen Harry hanging around?

      • JoJo

        Sierra: absolutely agree with everything you said about Lu and about Tom. I think Tom is/was a Golden Girl Digger, his wealth is dubious, he just coincidentally has connections (to put it mildly) now with 3 RHONY out of the million of women in Manhattan, but lives in Palm Beach, has been seen, signed a waiver(s), been mic’d on the show Season 1, and finally gets picked up by the least of the whackjobs of the TRIAD Sonja, Ramona and Lu – who gives him the best possibility of finally being a part of Reality TV world.
        Tomawannabe and Lu deserve one another – yes I can see that they should be really happy in their perfect con.

    • Misha11

      I feel badly for Sonja too. But honestly these women seem to screw everybody what did she expect after ten years. Seems a lot of these women have casual sex. Sounds like she was the “right now” girl rather than the “right” girl which he seems to have found in Luann even though she seems to be a serial screwer, too. so it must be incredible chemistry. I hope they do have that. Hope Sonia finds someone too. As for Bethany, I’m sure the texts she got were so delightful for her thinking she could ruin lu’s happiness. What a P. O. S. Tamara is so right about her.

    • Dexter

      So now we know why Mr Morgan divorced Sonja. She was banging Tom for ten years. That covers the time she was married b

    • I’m not sure Sonja remembers what Tom looks like. For all of the seasons that Sonja has been on the show, have we ever heard of Tom? Sonja talked about Harry Dubin and lived with young Dominique for 9 months (or rather, he lived with her). But Tom? We’ve never seen Sonja with Tom or knew he existed before Lu. As for Ramona, she probably bought him a drink and talked his ear off for 10 minutes one lonely night. That’s probably the extent of their “dating.” I’m beginning to see Bethenny’s fingerprints and DNA all over this cockamamie Tom cheating story. As we’ve seen,Bethenny has most of the women believing that she has hiring and firing super powers. At least Jules and Lu don’t care. Carole latched on to Bethenny last season because her watch dog, Heather was leaving. Carole knows she’s as boring as drying paint so she finds someone to grab on to. Little did she know that Bethenny’s popularity would take a nose dive. Maybe that’s why she’s now distancing herself from Bethenny. Either that or she’s spying for her. Or both. It amazes me that Carole has lasted this long.

    • Sweet T

      You are not in the minority. I feel bad for Sonja. It must be hard to be dating some guy and maybe feeling close to him and wondering if the relationship will turn into something more, especially if she has known him for years. Then he meets someone else, the tall glamorous friend you have always been a little jealous of, and he asks her to marry him after one week. Devastating.

      Ramona can be jealous because tom and her never took off but her level of jealousy is really her fear of being alone. Mario leaving her is a lot for anyone to take. It is scary to be on your own after twenty years.

    • lori

      I don’t even believe that Sonja was sleeping with him for as long as she claims. Sonja is a known exaggerator and liar. I’m sure they banged once (or a few times), but since she does so much of that, is it really anything special? I didn’t believe it the moment she said it. Plus, why did she wait so long to tell that info? Why doesn’t Ramona already know that, and/or why wasn’t it breaking girl code for Ramona to “date” a man that Sonja’s been sleeping with for 10 years? Give me a break. She’s so full of shit.

  3. Purple Lover

    TT, I hate the Miami airport almost as much as I hate Charlotte’s.

    • Tara

      Ditto! I just do shots and get foot massages in Charlotte.
      I hope Luann gets a big Bravo wedding and a fucking spin off!

  4. Minky

    Oh Bethenny! Make like a tree and leave already!

    Has some sort of contagious psychosis infected everyone in this cast, except Luanne, Jules and Dorinda?

    Why does Sonja believe Tom shoulda coulda woulda chosen her? She’s a mess! If you’re a woman put yourself in that position.

    You have 2 choices:

    A) A well traveled, well spoken, educated, handsome and tastefully cologned bon vivant, with a good job and money in the bank.

    B) A delusional, drunk dude, who can’t do shit unless he’s had a couple of rips from his bong, and still has keggers like a frat boy every other night at his bachelor pad? And you know that he’s had all the women on the block.

    I choose gentleman A. Where’s he at? Set my ass up on a blind date with him.

    Seriously?!!! I can’t even with this bunch.

  5. SLM

    All I could think about this entire episode was how much Sonja, Ramona and Bethenny have made it their life’s work this season to drag Luann over miles of broken glass at every turn. They can’t draw breath without making a plan to screw with Luann and her life. I feel bad for Sonja in general, but I can’t take seriously anything she says. She lives so much in her own private Idaho that her take on what she THINKS she had with Tom can’t be taken at face value. She still thinks she has a yacht somewhere. With P Diddy on it. We can’t take her word that she had some meaningful soul deep connection with Tom.

    • Suse

      P Diddy, John John and Madonna — don’t forget them. I feel sorry for her.

      • Sabrina

        I do too- but then there are all the taking heads that sound SOOOOO snotty- I know it is jealousy and hautey superiority all in one , but both Sonja and Ramona made me cringe this time. Again. The ugly American comes out while in America. As Ramona basically removed her clothes while having the yacht attendant unzip her suitcase, she looks ridiculous and so desperate. They each try to climb all over each other.

        And I am sure Ramona was right, Luanne basically admitted she called Page 6 and the newspapers to get the word out exactly as she wanted it out- which SPECIFICALLY included the fact that Tom had had a long standing “friends with benefits” relationship with Sonja. Who does that? Luann is not a friend to these women-she apparently was proud to “catch” Tom while he had had this relationship. .I guess she thought something about it being Sonja, and Ramona who he had dated, made Lu feel the need to share . I think that was real insecurity talking- and Luanne’s classic one-up-manship. Ugly, Luann.

        I found my concern about Luann’s focus reinforced as well- she is literally giddy with joy abut getting engaged, having these parties, being on the yacht, and planning a wedding. . She was both singing/humming at one point and dancing to herself-, and it actually made me feel sad for her. The Engagement and planning the wedding appears to be making her delirious with joy- and appears to be so unexpected to her that it shows how very low she must have been – which we knew given how gross some of the guys she was dating were. .
        I do believe that- and think it represents how the majority of these single women who aren’t married or close to it feel. That is very sad- and a very real element of this. I think Luanne’s ego is so far into this celebration that there is no way under the sun that she will allow the wedding to be cancelled. I hope she truly evaluates this situation honestly and it is what she wants before she marries him. And I hope she is in love with him, one she gets to know him, rather than with love.

      • TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsYoya

        Yes, yes, YES, Sabrina! Luann is a snake, just as Bethenny called it so many seasons ago. Bethenny may be a raging psycho hose beast currently, but the woman does have a way of seeing people.

        I think Luann had become quite desperate, and to be honest I think she doesn’t care much that Tom is probably cheating on her. I believe she’s decided it’s better than being alone any longer.

      • Sabrina

        HI Artist, I think so too- she has made sure he has enough money , decided to lock in a prenup and get settled before losing any more of her looks. He must really must have enough, in order to get her to agree to give up the Countess title- so it must e substantial or she is even more desperate than we know.

        Every single one of those women on the boat had an angle last night and it was ugly. I thought it was truly lousy of Luann to try to push Sonja to have the champagne- and strong of her to take one sip finally and put it down.

        But it again reminded me that whatever happened behind the scenes to lead Sonja to give up the booze must have been very powerful- like the threat of loss of the job- or she would not have done it.
        There is much more going here than what we see- from Bethenny missing episodes because she is mad at Lu’s engagement ,to all this cloak and dagger , laced with bitter commentary, it feels like the season became secondary to everyones’ agendas.

        It will be fascinating to hear tea on the reunion shoot

      • Sierra

        Sabrina and The artist spot on, I think it was cool of you to acknowledge sonjas strength in putting the champs down, no friend does that to someone recovering from substance abuse. That page 6 thing was super shady and no one caught that.

  6. Diane

    Spot on SLM!

    I am sick of these “ladies” whining and moaning and crying and trying to destroy Luann’s happiness. Luann is very worldy and I am sure she knows all about Tom. And he her. They are both apparently out there and who the hell cares? They are 50ish!. I am in my 50s and I say FU to anyone who tries to judge me or my choices. Leave Luann alone. Someone please buy Ramona and Sonja blow up dolls as they protest so much Shakespeare is refusing to write another line.
    Bloody hell! Only Jules and shockers Carole are happy and keeping any thoughts they may have to themselves
    I like Carole sans Bethenny.
    Anyway… congrats Luann! These jealous biotches are annoying and thank the Goddesses the season is almost over. Not fun !

    • Susie

      Agree with you. I too am tired of seeing grown women trying to mess up someone’s love life and marriage plans because they are jealous! Sonja wearing the sexiest dress she could find with her breasts nearly popping out was just sad. Maybe she should stop acting like a tramp if she wants to land a man of her own. She is always talking about sex with various men…. it gets old. Guys don’t want to marry that! Try acting like a lady. Put on some underwear! 👀

    • I agree. NY is a large city but the social circles are small. I lived on a small island and there was no way in hell that singles past 40 yrs old could find mates that hadn’t been with at least two close friends or friends of friends. It’s the nature of the beast. These women are making Mt Everest out of a pile of rocks. Why? Ratings comes to mind. And a story because there’s nothing else besides Skinny Girl products and Bethenny’s uterus. It’s obvious that Bethenny is running the show. And she’s doing a shit job of it. Bethenny’s show didn’t get cancelled because it was fascinating. It got cancelled because like RHONY, it’s becoming all about her and what she wants. And right now what she wants is to humiliate Lu because that pleases her. I’m not sure Bethenny can go a day without humiliating someone. Its in her nature.

  7. Christi

    Think what you want about Luann but she is close with her family, has good friends and is still friendly with her ex.That says something to me. She is not bitter and mean and other than the Carol /Adam situation she never gets involved in the other women’s relationships. I’m rooting for her this season.
    Why can’t Bethenny and Ramona just butt out and let her have her moment?

    • anna

      You are right about Lu, & I honestly believe that the ONLY reason she passionately had a problem with Carol & Adam is because it hurt her niece, & her niece probably was telling her that it hurt, if it was my niece I would do the same. As far as Sonja ……she can go find someone else to screw. Ramon Ramona Ramona . …I just feel sorry for her daughter cause she is such an ass hole, she acts like she’s 12. & Bethany, her & her vaginal just need to go, she’s a miserable person.

    • Vet

      As reveled on another blog, Carol would hang out with LuAnn and her niece where they discussed her boyfriend problems. Carol knew about Adam from hearing about him from LuAnn and her niece. She of the girl code knew that her niece was still involve with him. Carol put on her blog that she didn’t care, and that the niece should get over it. Carol is a name calling JERK. Nobody would find her nice if you read her social media accounts she is a mean, bitter, and selfish person. The only family Carol talks about are dead.

      • Carole actually has a Twitter account called “my great ass” or something equally ridiculous. That says everything about her extreme insecurities. Carole lies and brags. It’s what she does best.

      • anna

        Yeah, she really is an ass hole!!!!

    • Because they wouldnt have a story line otherwise… Not one of them

  8. Sali

    Sonja is full of shit. I don’t believe that they were friends with benefits for x number of years. I think they screwed once, twice, three times and when she learned that Luann had so much pull on Tom the way she did, she became insecure and jealous. I have stopped feeling sorry for Sonja. I think she’s a bit of a con artist. I never thought I’d be pro-Countess, but happy looks great on her and dammit, I am rooting for her this season.

    • Good point, Sali. Sonja conned that movie company too, that’s why she lost most of her money.

      • Minky

        You and me both Sali. I never thought I’d be Team Countess, but here I am, rooting for her.

        I felt so bad for Sonja because of her circumstances. I wanted her to stop bullshitting people and actually do something with her life other than being a “socialite”. She’s making it harder and harder to have empathy for her with each episode.

    • Susie

      Sonja and Ramona BOTH want to make clear that they “dated” Tom multiple times but why do they want everyone to know that information? That is just creepy! He is engaged. He moved on. He didn’t want to stay with either of you so why make yourselves look worse by trying to lay claim to him?

  9. Margarett

    Thanks for the spoiler, Tamara! I’m so glad Luanne and Tom are happily still together.

    It was also nice to read that Jules is doing well. Another good recap!

  10. Suse

    Why the HELL does Bethenny need a note to go to Miami from her Doctor?? Who on earth is going to ask her for such a note? Occasionally, airlines might want to know if you are okay to fly if you are 15 months PREGNANT. Bethenny, GIVE IT A REST. I REALLY want to know who she thinks is going to make sure she is cleared to “travel???” I have never seen an ego blow up so big as this one. Bethenny has taken the lead — close second, CAROLE. “Luann is wearing a white dress!!” Uhhhhhh, what the F?? Why can’t she wear a white dress? These two deserve each other, but Carole (the journalist with horrible grammar) will be left in the dust as soon as she pisses B off and, let’s face it . . . EVERYONE PISSES B OFF EVENTUALLY. Bethenny needs to pay more attention to her mother. Bethenny? BEHOLD THE FUTURE. Bryn will bolt for her dad and loving grandparents as soon as she can.

    • Mm in OC

      This post!!! Ps. If you are bleeding profusely from your vag, you dont wear white, ever. And while fibroids suck, i don’t remember Cynthia acting like she was on a death bed.

      I used to love beth, but she’s an example of money bringing out the worst in s personality.

      • Suse

        Carole was the one that made the comment (while she was getting her grey hair done) that snarked, “Luann is in a white dress . . .” Bethenny was sitting on the beach with her friend (Sarah?) in her bikini — she has also posted pictures of herself in her bikini at her house in the Hamptons and one of her feet with her NOONY front and center! I went into chemically induced menopause after chemotherapy at 36. I was dry for 3 years and then the BOTTOM FELL OUT. I wouldn’t even get in the bed without towels piled up under me and she is on the beach in her tiny suit. Something doesn’t give. I know it is a miserable existence, but as for a story line, give it a rest. You are absolutely correct about the money. She is the perfect example of “money can’t buy happiness,” huh? Does she now think that having money gives her the right to so decidedly give her opinion to anyone/everyone/anything/anywho . . .

      • After crying and sobbing about her bleeding problem, we get to see Bethenny doing a headstand? The woman is a fraud and deranged.

    • Nila

      All I could think of was maybe Bravo requested the note so they wouldn’t be found liable if something were to happen? Kinda like when you need a Drs note to go back to work? That’s all I could think of..

      • Minky

        Wouldn’t that be something? I mean, Bethenny suing Bravo. Perish the thought! She’s best friends with the head master, I mean Andy.

        So much unnecessary drama. It’s like she’s a kid in school who needs to fill out those forms for a field trip. Such nonsense.

      • Susie

        There is something really scandalous about her and the guy she is seeing. That is why she is trying so hard to make bleeding her story line.

      • Nila

        Doesn’t mean Bravo lawyers wouldn’t request a note to get them out of liability issues. I think she used her health to get her out of filming things she didn’t want to but then ended up needing a medical release to film something she did want to.

      • TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsYoya

        @Susie, not so – she was planning on announcing the engagement at the end of the season, as per the blind.

      • Minky

        Yeah Susie. Like Yoya said, TT went into a good deal of detail about all of that. Basically Luanne foiled Bethenny’s plans for her big reveal regarding her engagement at the end of the season. And that’s why she’s been so rabid-dog-pissed at Luanne and keeps going for her throat all season, aided by her spineless minions.

        I guess Bravo only allows one engagement/marriage per franchise, per season. Or at least it looks that way.

      • Nila

        I don’t think that ever really came to light. I think TT was guessing because of the ring Bethenny was sporting and then the sudden Instagram pics of Bethenny and a guy. I think TT had an updated blog post asking if we thought Bethenny was engaged or not. I don’t think she ever was, I think she started instagramming the ring she bought for herself to cause tumors and steal some of Lu’s thunder.

      • Nila

        Rumors not tumors!

    • IDon'tBelieveJustAnything

      Thank you. I thought I was the only one who thinks this! About the both of them!

      • Suse

        Funny how much we all seem to see the same thing and think it’s us!! IT’S THEM, lol!!! I thought Lisa Rinna had lost it way before it was all over the place. Maybe I am extra cynical (okay, I am extra cynical) — but the public catches on eventually — 99% of them!

    • Susie

      You are funny! Yeah, who cares if she has a note? Stay home and bleed if you are in such rough shape or go check into a hospital. Quit dragging it out for attention. This is a smoke screen to keep viewers from knowing what else is going on her life. She is using her health crisis as a smoke screen to hide “her guy”.

      • AshK

        I don’t think that’s the reason. I remember TT saying Bethenny was mad at Lu for stealing her engagement story line this season.. Since Lu stole her spotlight, the only thing she could talk about was her bleeding..

      • G.

        Bethenny’s not behaving well toward others, but she is going through something that can’t just be fixed in a snap of her fingers and can be pretty debilitating. I agree w/ Nila above, the note was likely for Bravo, so it’s funny that this comment was aired. She does have to be concerned w/ filming if she wants the option of renewing for big bucks. To Mm in OC: while I know for some there’s been too much vagina-talk all around, fibroid experiences vary widely and just b/c Cynthia could function easily, doesn’t mean that’s the case for Bethenny. And she can’t just show up at the hospital and have them removed on demand. She’s likely taking a few drugs to regulate bleeding, including hormones, and then you need to take them out in a certain part of your cycle for a good result. And you have to do a bunch of ultrasounds diagnostically, which constantly need updating, in order to have the surgery work well. I’m not defending B’s behavior, but there’s no need to go off this way re fibroids. There’s enough real grist for the mill here.

      How about her lounging on her white sofa while bleeding so profusely she couldn’t fly to Hawaii, BULLSHIT

    • Sweet T

      I thought the white dress comment was sad. Luann wore a white suit in a previous scene. Desperate

  11. You’ll be dissapointed in me then TT, I’ve never been able to style my own hair – I spend loads of money on crap products and appliances that are supposed to make styling of my-thin-but-lots-of-it-hair-that-frizzes-at-the-drop-of-a-hat easy-peasy, but its hit or miss so I wear it up. One of the reasons I’d like to be FU rich is so I could have someone pop in and blow dry my locks before being seen by anyone other than my cats ….

    • Purple Lover

      I live in Alabama, the humid south, and I can have my hair styled on minute and then walk outside. Frizz city! The easiest things is just to pull it back, or put it up.

  12. I’ve got good tea from Bethenny’s radio show today about the reunion, but your contact info doesn’t work and I’m not on Twitter.

  13. I have been lurking for a long time. Love this site, TT. I had to jump in with my first comment ever because my husband won’t listen to me talk about housewives anymore, and the dogs and cats are too busy planning each other’s destruction to pay attention.

    I just can’t with the gossip about Tom before Luann. I had to fast forward through all the scenes where they gossiped behind her back, which means I only watched about 20 minutes of the show tonight.

    The covetous coven of Bethenny, Sonja and Ramona is such a transparent hot mess. It is painful to watch (so I didn’t).

    Bethenny wants the spotlight solely on her and obeisance of ever housewife. If they aren’t kissing her ass, they are feeling her wrath. Kudos to Luann for standing her ground, and doing things her way. At the end of the day, she only has to be around Bethenny when they are working, she has to live with herself every minute of the day. I admire her for standing her ground in the face of the mean girls gone wild.

    Sonja used to be just sad to watch. Now, she is downright pathetic. She says and does whatever she has to in order to keep her delusional world spinning, and doesn’t see a problem with destroying a purported friends happiness to do it. Whatever she had with Tom, clearly he had no intention of ever making it more, and her comment tonight about wanting to stay in Tom’s good graces so she could go back to their whatever “after Lu” was so far past desperate we need the Hubble Space telescope to see it.

    I should preface my Ramona comments by making it clear I have never liked her. I have always found her to be a classless, twit whose self-regard doesn’t just border on delusional, it stands squarely in the middle of it emceeing like Michael Scott at the Dundies. If anyone ever doubts what they should do in social situations, they should watch her and do the exact opposite. She is jealous of Luann and always has been. The fact that Luann is happy kills her, and she lets it show every time she opens the gaping maw that his her mouth. And her speech about needing a year before you know is such garbage. Some people just know. I knew my husband was the one after our first date, and we’ve been together for 18 years. Some people know. Some people need time. Everyone handles it differently and Luann is clearly in the category that “knows.” So what? Ramona is a bundle of rage over the fact that, not only did Tom not want to date her, he wants marry Luann. She lives for every opportunity to try and wreck Luann’s happiness, and is more obvious about it than Sonja flashing her lady bits.

    I am glad Tom and Luann are still going strong and wish them the best. The world is a mess right now. Love and happiness are a cause for celebration. These three clearly wouldn’t recognize happiness if it jumped up and smacked them in the juvederm.

    • GildedLily

      You nailed it.

    • Suse

      Welcome to my world . . . we all live so vicariously via these hags – my household also refuses to join in the banter (the nerve!). My dogs, so far, will participate as long as I am scratching something. Sonja and Ramona have definitely gotten bent out of shape. Sonja would kill for a real relationship and Ramona’s ego has taken a hit. I wonder if Sonja would stop being so “beneficial,” and leave something to the imagination (my family would die if I spoke of my sex life like she does on TV (or anywhere, for that matter!), she might find a real relationship and move on from her ex. Ramona — she will be dead before she learns any flexibility and nobody will put up with her shit. However, I would bet on all over them to find happiness over the Big B. She is not happy unless she is miserable and has made those around her miserable as well.

      Welcome to the club!

    • librarygirl

      I agree with you Ann. It is hard to find sympathy for any of these “ladies” in the midst of this situation. Give it a rest, already. Who in their right mind would want to have any type of relationship with any of them,let alone a romantic one. I get that none of them has anything at all going on with their lives, except Beth and her married paramour, but Lu’s new relationship could have been a cause for celebration. Sonja and Ramona are doing themselves no favors by coming across as spurned women. I would never fall on my sword over a guy who passed me over, let alone do it publicly Have some self respect and keep it to yourselves. Lu could very will be chuckling to herself over this entire thing, but I bet she is too happy to do so.

    • Perfect analysis. I agree!

    • Vet

      LMAO, my dog babies are the only ones that will watch the housewives with me. I won’t watch NY anymore because I cannot stand Carl and Beth.

  14. Microop

    Why would Bethenny show a text like that to Luanne on camera? Oh yeah, bitch.

    • Susie

      Maybe Bethenny wants to upstage Luann by showing her text messages? Luann is getting too much attention and Bethenny is supposed to be the star of the show. She wants to be the center of attention.

  15. Suse

    I agree with you. Dorinda did her wrong (very wrong); I can still hear Bitch Bethenny screaming at her; her daughter left for boarding school;; she missed her ex (it is not unusual to only remember the “good”) — she is lonely. Now, Luann got Tom and she — although would never say — probably secretly would have jumped to have had a real relationship with him (or any of the others she shares “benefits” with.

  16. Sonja, if Tom thought you were more than an easy booty call, he would have placed a lot more value on you rather than just making you another (extremely available) port in a horny storm.Same with Ramona – he obviously wasn’t super impressed with you whether you dated once, twice, or four or five times.Neither of you had anything he wanted to hold on to. Luann is a woman of the world – she’s been around the block at least as much as Tom has, and they’re under no illusions about each other. She doesn’t pretend to be a simpering virgin and doesn’t deserve the vicious back-stabbing you’re all going out of your way to deliver, you nasty bitches. I expect this kind of ugliness from Bethenny – she’s nothing but an attractive package hiding a hideous interior, but I was really disappointed to see Dorinda joining in the Luann bashing.

    • SLM

      I second all of that EnglishRose! Tom didn’t want Sonja or Ramona for keeps and they are lividly butt hurt over it. Grow up, ladies, that’s dating!! Not everyone will be that into you. He chose Luann. Now, take 2 seats in the back and shut up about all your so-called “meaningful” history with him.

      • Susie

        Right on! He didn’t want either of you two so move on. Did you see Ramona refusing to comment on the engagement ring? Andy asked her about it and she could not respond with something nice to say. Ramona is a poor loser! 👿

  17. GirlMe

    Bethenny is hiliarious to cancel the yacht in Palm Beach beause its too much to do PB and Miami…

    But she wants to throw a cheesy Mexican party in 6 days. And wants all to be there. If I were LuAnn I’d cancel. Ya know Dr note sez I have to take it easy. (Anybody can get BS note).

    Ugh how did Bethenny become so horrible!

  18. Chloe

    I was watching a marathon of old shows recently and Bethenny used to be much more likable. Money certainly changed her into a mean egomaniac. It seems she gets more airtime than the rest of them too, I guess because inexplicably she’s Andy’s favorite. I would not miss her at all if she wasn’t on the show. There’s plenty of story and drama without her.

  19. JoJoFLL

    Ramona was horrible this episode. Again. She is becoming unwatchable.

    Why does Carole have a dog in LA? Who watches this dog?

    • Susie

      Oh yeah! I totally forgot about that dumb dog! No disrespect intended towards the pet but rather the dumb human who claims to own the dog. She never sees it. Someone else takes care of it for her so really it is their dog, not hers. I nearly forgot that she owns a house and dog in California. That’s convienient to be a pet owner when you feel like pretending you have a pet for a few days then giving it back to someone else to take care of. She pays the bills so that makes the dog “hers”. Funny!

      • Jessica White

        Carole also is part owner of Baby with Meghan Edmunds brother. When the cameras aren’t around she probably hands the dog back over to him.

      • Susie

        Most likely does hand the poor dog back when there is no filming. Remember her self-awakening over a cat? I don’t think she is a pet person.

  20. Susie

    Hey all, I just saw Ramona on Watch What Happens. She refused to comment on Luann’s engagement ring! Why not say “it is lovely” or “it suits her”? She and the others are so jealous!

    I sincerely hope that Lu and Tom do get married as planned. I recall a friend who made comments about a guy I dated who she said was a playboy who couldn’t possibly be serious about me. He was wild about me and a great catch. It tickles me that Luann and Tom refuse to allow these horrible women to spoil things. 💍💗👥💖

    Ramona, you showed bad taste by not paying a compliment to Luann concerning her ring. You acted as if it was stolen from your grandmother! What’s wrong with you? Your inability to say something nice made you look petty and small. So what if it is not to your taste? Jealous! 😫

    • Ramona is entitled, and it is a hideous look. Every time she shows up, everyone compliments her. She never repays. I truly find that tendency to show up, show off, bask and exit the hallmarks of a conceited bitch.

    • SLM

      Yeah, don’t you love the shit talk about Luann’s ring?? Um, hey, Sonja and Ramona, where are your super far superior engagement rings from men who just asked you to marry them? Ohhhhh, that’s right, you don’t have any! So stfu

      • Susie

        Ha ha ha! Agree! That’s why a big, hurkin’ ring is all the more important to wear. I would!

  21. Shae

    Flight times from NY to MIA or PBI always say 3 hours, but it’s never that long, it’s a little over 2, about 2.5 It’s very short.

    • Shae

      I don’t know what to think about Sonja and Tom. Obviously Sonja has been delusional in the past and fabricates things, but Tom has admitted they were involved (briefly), she says longer. The fact Tom literally left a woman he was dating for months in a restaurant, to flirt and carry on with Luann, doesn’t say much of his character. Also, the whole bit about giving jewelry to exes while dating Luann, gives me pause. I’m not saying he’s a bad guy, but I don’t trust him all that much more than Sonja so I’m in limbo on this bit. Maybe Sonja feels hurt she was never more than a booty call/date to Tom, but she has no right to impose that on Luann. I’ve said before though, hats off to Luann, because no way could I marry a guy who had slept with my close girlfriend and dated another, however briefly. I would not be comfortable with that one bit.

      Ramona is just a socially inept human being. What person in their right mind brings up how they dated the groom to be at an engagement party? She might have some type of high functioning autism where she is immune to social cues of any kind, otherwise, it’s hard to believe she could be so tone deaf socially.

      Luann is right to decide she’s not going to let anything spoil her party, kudos.

  22. Sue

    My parents live in Delray Beach and I always fly into PBI from the NY area and the flight is typically just over 2 hours long. The only thing I can think is they account for the delays because you never take off on time EVER and they always make up time in the air. Never fails.

    • Shae

      I lived in Delray for two years! I’ve lived in NY the rest of my life except for those two…also, I have family in Key Largo so I’d fly into miami a lot as a kid to visit them. Small world! Delray is lovely.

      Definitely, time on the tarmac is the difference, the flight itself is short.

  23. Peej

    Bethenny has been a jerk this entire season and also talks out of both sides of her mouth. One second she thinks Lu is crazy for calling her “family” and then the next she is saying how “genuinely happy” she is for her engagement. I am so sick of hearing about her bleeding. We get it Beth. Ramona and Sonja are so thirsty it’s sad. I think Carole is still a shady b too. Leave Lu and Tom alone!!

  24. Maybe it’s a new thing and it just hasn’t hit the Midwest yet, but I really don’t understand all the sleeping around and talking about it. Kathryn on Southern Charm and Sonja and Lu all have no problem with the fact that they will jump in the sack with just about anyone and then have it be fodder for reality tv. How do you teach your daughters morals and self worth when you act like that? I guess I’m really out of touch.

    • Susie

      Likewise Mary. One thing that comes to mind with every episode is STDs. Why aren’t New Yorkers terrified of bed-hopping behavior? No form of protection makes sex safe. Kissing isn’t safe! What really bugs me are moms who talk about one night stands on national TV as if it was normal and acceptable behavior. It isn’t. My mother was a lovely, respectable person. I feel sorry for these daughters who have moms who seem to brag about their conquests. Nasty!

      • Just think about how gross it would be if Lu, Ramona, Sonja and Tom were all sporting “cold” sores on their mouths like the ones all the wives have on Sister Wives. EWWWWW

  25. SLM

    At this point I think Luann should past herself on the back AND take a big bow, because CLEARLY to have inspired this level of RABID, SLATHERING JEALOUSY, she must be doing everything about 2000% right and winning at LIFE. No one is circled by this many envious, snarling BITCHES unless they have come up roses all over!!!

  26. RHofND

    I can totally identify with Luann. I’m in my 50s and divorced 6 years ago. I played the field very happily and my girlfriends thoroughly enjoyed hearing all about my dating life. Once I met and fell in love very quickly with a wonderful man and he asked me to marry him, my good friends turned into Mean Girls. I could not understand how they could criticize, find fault and be so unhappy for me to have found the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. My family adores him. No, my man hadn’t slept with two of my friends like Luann, but they just couldn’t be happy for me. We married and several of my friends continued to exhibit those behaviors so I mentally moved them into the Acquaintance Zone. Luann has no choice but to film with these ladies but in her personal life I am hope she has chosen to keep close only those who are happy and supportive of her

  27. lo

    It’s sad to see grown women be so mean to each other. What’s so hard about being happy for another human being? Just because she is happy doesn’t mean there’s less happiness for them, but that is exactly how they think. Bethenny is just mean. All her attacks are rooted in envy. Since Ramona is on the prowl for a husband herself, she’s sour because she sees LuAnne having what she wants but does not have. She sees Tom picking LuAnne as an insult to her and her ego can’t take that.

    I always have a soft heart with regards to Sonja because she appears really fragile to me under the surface. She seems baffled and hurt as to why SHE wasn’t chosen by Tom. It doesn’t excuse that dress she’s wearing to the party (although she looks smoking in it). It’s try-hard, pathetic and sad when you know the reason why she’s wearing it.

    Long story short: be happy for your friends when they are happy. It’s really not that difficult!

  28. Happygal

    I Am wondering if Bethany shows Louanne the text at the party!!!

    I mean it is bad enough that she is trying to come off like she is concerned about her and she must share this information as a duty to Louanne but does this bitch share it at the yatch party?!?!

    • Shae

      Bethenny told Luann she’s not coming to the yacht party, she’s meeting the girls in miami the following day, so she’s definitely not showing her there.

  29. Omigodmypistachio

    This franchise is the only one with organic long friendships. That I appreciate. And I know that we only see the edit. But I just want to share: when I first saw Luann in dag harbor driving a convertible bug I couldn’t help but smile and she grinned truly back. I gave her a thumbs up ( I’m more of a dork then I knew I suppose) and she graciously said thank you and the few times I’ve seen her back we exchange thumbs upsss. Now when I see Ramona (often outside the European waxing place on my corner) she ignores me and actually asked my husband once to take a picture of HER with MY dog. Ok. Not going to even relay my Bethanny sighting

    • GildedLily

      Please do. I would love to hear about Bethenny in the real world, can’t imagine it’s good.

      • Omigodmypistachio

        I ran into Bethemny a year or so ago on 17th street after a night out. She was walking along alone and I don’t have the best facial recognition or I might have looked away sooner. Her eyes met mine and she spit out “what!?what are you looking at?!” And my best friend said “apparently nothing” not having any clue who B was. I only tell my family I watch these soaps. I think my friends would tell me they would make me dumber but I don’t care it really relaxes me and to be totally honest I recognize some of the behavior among the women if you catch my drift…

      • Minky

        Oh my goodness!!! Tsk, tsk, tsk. So unnecessary to snap at you like that. How rude of her.

    • Minky

      Luanne actually sounds like a nice person. Yay!

      And I too would love to hear the Bethenny sighting tea.

  30. Margaret Shepard

    I used to enjoy the housewives shows but now it just seems to be about bullying. I gave up atlanta cause Phadra and Porsche make me gag. All the rest of them are just full of bullying fighting. Bethany and Carol make me sick as well. I like LeAnn and feel kinda sorry for Sonya for some reason. I do like D orinda though.

    • TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsYoya

      I’m not much enjoying RHONY or OC right now. I don’t know if I’ve changed or if Housewives has. So far Jersey has been alright but the previews don’t look good.

  31. G.

    At certain times I’ve wondered if Sonja should be on the show, would like to get her see her crap together, and I’m not really into the intern abuse, but I can’t help but feel a little sorry for her in this situation. I don’t think it’s just simply jealousy that explains what’s going on, though it may be a piece of it — she no doubt is envious of and wants a(nother) rich man to swoop in and make all her problems go away. She feels entitled in that way which, to me, is yucky.

    But: some of this situation feels genuinely awkward. Yes, Sonja is the Empress of Exaggeration. No doubt. But for whatever reason, I don’t believe Tom’s account that they simply slept together once or maybe twice. The way she shared that info felt genuine to me. Maybe it’s the contrast in her behavior w/ not drinking. I usually don’t believe her but did then. And unlike Ramona, who is utterly and completely creating a shit-storm for TV and being her usual jerk-y self, I don’t think that’s what’s going on with Sonja. I also think that b/c Luann is being attacked from all sides right now, she’s super defensive (some of which is understandable) and she’s not being to most considerate toward Sonja in this way. She and Ramona and not acting in the same way. And while I get what happened Before Her shouldn’t concern her in general, these are her friends and she isn’t handling this with the grace that she might. While I find myself happy for Luann and Tom in some ways, the whole: he swept me off my feet in three weeks is a little much. And I totally believe she picked him up while he was on a date and she never thought twice about that. That’s Luann.

    I cringed a bit for Sonja when she said the thing about her ex-husbands yacht. But I can share that the Morgan family has a very impressive history with boats. My partner is involved w/ NYC area kayaking and we’ve been to a bunch of events, including fundraisers, for boating, environmentalism, and clean water efforts over the years. Several of these have been tied to the NY Yatch Club where there have been exhibits explaining JP Morgan’s history w/ them and pictures of the families boats. Contemporary yachts, like this Miami special, have nothing on these much larger, older boats in style and size. They make the boat from last night’s show look like a Ford Taurus wagon from the 80s and you know that’s not good. So while I can’t usually stand Sonja’s Morgan family delusions of grandeur, I can’t really blame her for making the comparison here.

    • G.

      That said, I thought it was funny and a potential ice breaker that Luann said: Sonja, you’re sleeping with Tom and me.

    • TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsYoya

      Luann admitted she picked him up while he was on a date with another woman. She seemed quite proud of it.

  32. Holy Moly, Sonja was serving up all kinds of Versace bazookas in that dress. What a great figure she has! I know her liver is probably pickled after years of drinking so heavily, but when Sonja’s sober, she really is cookin’ down and lookin’ good. I really do hope she eventually finds love: every Holly Golightly needs to settle down eventually.

    Re: how the lazy butts got Hair & Make-Up: they would likely have a recommendation from their regular folks in Manhattan. When I lived in Miami 50% of my shoots came from recommendations (and the rest through agency rep). There’ such a high density of artist rep agencies in S. Florida because of the film & fashion still industry- a Production Coordinator just needs to hit up a local agency and option (then confirm) crew talent like for any other type of shoot. Most of my friends who are still based in the Miami have bumped into a Bravo booking a time or two (or 3 or 5) through the years. I know there’s a reputable agency in Boca with H&MU talent, but they’re very “lifestyle”, and the New York girls only deal with “editorial” experienced glam squads. So I’m guessing for this episode/trip they if they didn’t go through private referral, a coordinator booked from out of Miami Beach, and the talent then drove to meet them in Palm. That’s a actually a pretty common artist commute route for shoots not taking place directly in Miami (i.e. Palm Beach & Upper Florida Keys)- and a nice escape from the city.

    Speaking of crews, btw, Ramona, it seems, is back to her old entitled self. Every time I see her bossing around staff for ridiculous things like unpacking her suitcases on these trips- I can’t help but groan. Great review as usual. Next week looks like it will be a rancid hot mess.

    • Shae

      Totally. Ramona is so wildly inappropriate with male staff it makes me cringe. You know they’re thinking “this crazy cougar needs to calm down” inside lol. If she said she “needed to rip my clothes off” one more time in front of that male crew member on the boat, I was going to vomit.

      • Sabrina

        Precisely. I was embarrassed just to be watching it- that’s how ridiculous she was! I was surprised she had any clothes on when he returned with the bag-. How do none of them learn after all these years? Wasn’t it the Morocco trip where she made the woman undo each bag and set out the jewelry and shoes in a certain order with certain display pieces?

        Ramona is reverting to her worst, most selfish- self-indulgent self. And has nothing to say that doesn’t have a selfish agenda.

      • SLM

        Does Ramona HAVE a self that isn’t the worst, most selfish and self-indulgent?? If she does, I haven’t seen it! 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤔

      • I’m probably wrong here, but I think Ramona has low self-esteem and putting herself on a pedestal may be her way of making herself feel good.

  33. Question…how long has Sonja been divorced? It hasn’t been 10 years has it so how can she say she was friends with benefits with Tom for 10 years? I mean I know it could happen but to go on TV and admit you were cheating on your spouse yet on the other hand want sympathy for her divorce and financial troubles. Idk I could be off but I’ve heard her say several times friends w/benifits 10 yrs with Tom.

    • Nila

      I agree with you! Sonja was suppose to be an original housewife but because she was going through a divorce she didn’t sign on until later. RHONY hasn’t been on for ten years..

      • TheArtistFormerlyKnownAsYoya

        I think she was finalizing the divorce on an episode or two of the show, but that doesn’t mean they hadn’t been separated for a time before that. I’m not one who considers it “cheating” if you’re separated.

    • Shae

      The divorce was finalized in 2006, so I’m sure they were separated prior. Even if they weren’t, that’s ten years ago so I doubt she was cheating.

      • Oh ok Thank you, like I said I wasn’t sure, I just knew I haven’t been watching RHNY for 10 years and I thought her husband was on one of the first ones with her but now I think I was remembering LuAnns husband, I have a horrible memory.

  34. Miguel

    Loving deLUsional & the gang!!! Anxious for Bethenny’s bombshell to land with a whimper, since Lu & Tom are going strong. Thanks for the tea, Tamara 😉

  35. SLM

    My take on Sonja’s involvement with Tom is that she had a few drunken one nights stands with him over the last however many years that she (in reality) barely remembers and which he obviously thought were nothing of consequence. Only in typical Sonja delusional fashion she has now cooked it up to be some sort of hot, yet urbane long term passion that needs addressed. My bet is, they never went on any actual dates or even had meaningful conversation in all that time. I mean, how serious could it have been if Tom was seeing Luann WHILE she was staying with Sonja and neither he NOR ANYONE ELSE THEY KNEW mention that Tom was an ongoing item with Sonja? No one – not even the friends Sonja and Luann have in common – said anything then because NOTHING REALLY HAPPENED except Sonja’s usual random sex, which every male over 25 on the Upper East Side has likely partaken of. I don’t think anything is wrong with Sonja running her sex life like this if she wants, but she can’t be put out (no pun intended) if no male in the world takes her seriously anymore.

  36. DejaBlue53

    One of Sonja’s interns has said that Sonja never drinks at home and that production tries to ply her with drinks on “the set” but she sticks with water…that it’s a story line. She also said that she NEVER heard the name Tom so she doesn’t believe that Sonja went out with him. She said Sonja never stops talking so she would have heard the name Tom if he was a booty call. Never saw a man named Tom come over and she lived with Sonja.

  37. Cat

    Why isn’t Bravo covering the Presidential race?

    Bravo shows are all about hate, and cattiness, and backstabbing. Insults, name-calling, scandals and lack of morals.

    The election is right up Bravo’s alley.

    Andy, you have dropped the ball.

  38. Cat

    As for styling my own hair, I’m trying to figure out how to do that, now that blow dryers are no longer allowed in my life. (Pacemaker)

    I would be happy just with a nice hair cut at this point. I recently became “frustrated”, and went all “Mommie Dearest” on my own hair. With a razor blade. (I couldn’t find the scissors.)

    Now, I’m waiting for my hair to grow out again.

    Oh, well.

  39. flo

    1. I never thought much of Luanne until this season. Their vitriol makes her more likeable.
    2. Sonja is just playing up the relationship with Tom as she’s cottoned on the the fact that there is a story in it for her and she realizes it’s winning the real heart she’s after – Bethenny. I’m sure they were shag buddies, but she knew it was nothing more.
    3. Bethenny stayed away from the boat so she could receive these text messages.
    4. I think Ramona is the kind of person to be at a table with someone and think it’s a date. Her emotional development seems to have been retarded.

  40. Naike

    Thank you for the recap TT. I completely, forgot to watch last night.

  41. Naike

    lol. I agree with Flo #4 re Ramona one hundred percent.

  42. Was it just me, or did anyone else get the idea that Sonya is getting some pay for play? Now that Tom’s out – who’s going to help supplement her income? Just my opinion… Why else would she tell him she needs a replacement?

    • Nila

      I think Sonja is a lot of things but a prostitute isn’t one of them. Seriously? I think she’s hurt that her one night stand was just that. She thought Tom was a forever bachelor, turned out he just wasn’t that in to her.

  43. Did anyone else notice Sonja’s face when Ramona tells that the gossip mag got it backwards and Ramona got the credit for being “friends with benefits” instead of Sonja? Seemed like Sonja was unhappy that she didn’t get top billing in the article.

    Oh man, how could you not have mentioned Romona’s embarrassing and awkward behavior towards the yacht boy? So desperate! I was cringing!

  45. RHoNY used to be my favorite franchise…

    These women should be embarrassed how obvious their jealousy of Luann is. Makes them look desperate & sad. I mean, they are desperate & sad but you’d think they’d want to hide it a little better. That being said, Luann’s giddiness over the trappings of Tom’s wealth makes me uncomfortable. I don’t doubt she loves him but she seems a little too excited about his $$$ for my comfort.

      Lady, I do agree with you about the women, they are all just jealous of LuAnn. Sonja seems too fragile right now and looks like she is about to be pushed over the edge. Ramona has turned into the joke of the show. She only sees herself and if she looked in the mirror she would see a clown. Dorinda has begun to show a different side of herself and it is one that I do not like. She is really being a pot-stirrer right now. Julles…I just don’t get her.

      I’m also with you on LuAnn being so giddy. Something is just not right. She has always had that superior attitude, but this is almost to the point of being fake. I wonder how she is going to handle not being called “The Countess” any more after she marries Tom because she will no longer be one once she marries again. I’m also wondering how long Tom is going to be faithful to only one women, but then after the comment about Sonja sleeping with Tom and Luann, they may have an open arrangement or be a part of the swinging scene.

        Lord, I hate to think of it — but Luann’s reputation seems to have really showed it’s ass this season (Bethenny = Luann’s reputation). She even admits on camera to sleeping around (something I don’t ever talk about). On her personal interview ‘Before They Were Housewives,” she told a joke about pubic hair. I just cringed. Hardly “class.” I absolutely believe the jealousy is rampant, but a lot if it, I think, is because they can’t believe she is making out like a bandit in this relationship (Sonja obviously is hurt that he didn’t pick her for anything other than a F-buddy, Ramona — is she didn’t sleep with him — can’t believe that she was one of the only ones that he didn’t want, lol). They are probably thinking,”how did she get to be happy, money, love, et al., when the rest of us think we are better than her!” They’re all in shock. It’s a shocker!

    Is this boat going anywhere at all?

  47. Jules drink was picked up by Whole Foods? Oh, Lord…Bethenny won’t like that at all, especially since one of her products (can’t remember which) was removed from Whole Foods because it contained non-organic garbage. Good for Jules! As for Bethenny’s uterus, she can sell it on Ebay as far as I’m concerned. I’m sick of fast forwarding her every 5 seconds. Out of boredom, I timed it one night and RHONY sans Bethenny came out to less than 20 minutes. That means that her other cast mates get about 5 minutes of camera time (unless they’re all together–which isn’t happening much this season),

    • Shae

      I highly doubt it will bother Bethenny that Jules is selling a juice in whole foods.

      • tamaratattles

        It’s like you don’t even KNOW Bethenny. She was FURIOUS that WF threw her out after she crowed about being sold there. It was the biggest blow to her brand EVER.

        That said, I’ll be really shocked if Jules Juice is actually there. That’s kind of a big deal.

    Bethenny sure does take delight in making others miserable. I hope there is a big announcement soon that she is leaving the show. She has made RHONY so dark and unwatchable.
