I am so weary.
So very weary.
Is this over yet? I just want it to be over. I don’t think I will ever watch this franchise again.
It’s time to talk about the Amish shunning that Bethenny orchestrated against Sonja this season. I never had a problem with Bethenny bitching out Sonja for her stupid business deal with the housewife clinging idiot. She knew exactly what she was doing and Bethenny was right to ream her out for it. What she did wrong was to threaten all the other castmates into excluding her from filming. Sonja needs the paycheck and she has a kid. That was a bitch move by Bethenny. Before you put this season behind you, you really need to read this tutorial on SkinnyGirl v Tipsy Girl. Everyone applauds Sonja for quitting drinking. Ramona hasn’t been asked about anything I can remember in a single segment. So she keeps trying to pipe in about issues that don’t concern her. Apparently, Ramona was in on the deal with Peter at first but for some reason backed out. Dorinda says that Bethenny did call and say she was coming whoever she decides to invite. Everyone said they excluded her because of her drinking. Even Dorinda and Ramona who both drink like fishes.
Sonja has a crying meltdown because she wasn’t invited to the Berkshires. She blames Dorinda. Sonja tries to do a dramatic walkout but the cameras are not following so she doesn’t make it off the stage.
Seriously. Have we not beaten the Tom and Luann thing to death? In case you missed it, the kiss situation was disclosed here and seriously it’s not a big deal. Jules says that two of her bridesmaids were Michael’s exes. Not really helpful, Jules, considering. Sonja is embarrassed about her one upping Luann about her ring and her yacht. Sonja apologizes profusely and tells Lu she wants nothing but the best for her and Tom.
Bethenny stands by her comment calling Dorinda the village idiot. Bethenny calls Dorinda defensive. Everyone is defensive around Bethenny because Bethenny is always attacking everyone around her. Bethenny says about the village idiot insult that “you took it literally and it’s from literature, you obviously don’t get the metaphor.” Yeah, noe. It’s not really a literary term or a metaphor. It’s just a derogatory term that has been around a long time that initially was used to refer to people with mental deficiencies.
Carole denies that she is different when Bethenny is not around. She’s in denial.
Ramona finally gets a question about why she lied about not going to the sandbar. Ramona is still high as a kite and speedtalking. Since she fell asleep during filming last season, it’s clear she dipped into Bethenny’s jug of Adderall or something to get through this endeavor. No one cares about her lying. We’re all used to it.
At some point in the season Bethenny said that Dorinda brow beats her friends. Dorinda told her to look in the mirror. I missed this, but good for you Dorinda. Bethenny says that Dorinda has been totally nasty and aggressive at the reunion. Bethenny probably really believes this. I’ve read that the amount of Adderall Bethenny takes in a day is extremely high. (No pun intended) I think that perhaps her entire problem might stem from Adderall abuse. If that is the case, there is a chance that one day she will get off it and be horrified about her behavior on these shows. Bethenny says that Dorinda seems really angry. She does not. Andy looks at Bethenny and says, “You both do.” Which is as close as Andy will get to telling Bethenny that she is being an angry bitch to everyone.
Bethenny goes in on Luann’s relationship with the Count. Andy asks why Bethenny told everyone else before she told Luann about the text with Tom “cheating.” Because she is a stark, raving, mad lunatic, cunt, Andrew. How can you not see this? Since Andy just called out Bethenny for being angry, Andy asks why the holy hell she was calling Tom. Andy asked why she was so emotional when she told Luann. She is choked up again. I think she is having huge mood swings from the Adderall. Luann doesn’t believe a word Bethenny is saying. She says that Bethenny went to a lot of trouble and sure did a lot of “investigating.” Bethenny says she didn’t do anything wrong that entire weekend. Amazing.
Luann sort of stammers through her explanation of what happened with Tom. Dorinda tells the story of talking to Tom on the phone while he and Luann were at The Regency. Tom said that he can bring waiters over and explain everything that happened and she needs to stick up for Lu. Luann says Tom was caught with his pants down, then she corrects herself and says well not with his pants down. That was kind of funny.
Ramona is ready for her big AHA! moment. She seems to have some evidence on Tom from last month. Ramona asks if she would want to know and Lu says yes. Dorinda says, “But not from Bethenny!” and Lu says, “Right not from Bethenny.” Bethenny’s rage has been steadily building since Andy’s comment. Now she is pissed. She says that she was the most tactful she has very been telling Lu and it didn’t matter so now she is just going to tell them all to fuck off. Hmm… I am not sure how that is any different from what she thinks is tactful. Luann goes into a story about how happy she is now and Ramona is grinning like the cat who swallowed the canary. Luann says if it happens again you better tell me. Andy asks Lu what she loves about Tom. She lists lots of things. Ramona says Luann is not being deep enough.
It’s time for final thoughts. Bethenny’s final thoughts are that Luann was very mean to her. Andy continues in the vein of making these women say something nice to the other. When it gets to Ramona he said to say something nice to Luann. Ramona says she is just really glad that Luann is so happy.
The reunion ends. Did I miss the part where Ramona had some evidence? If I did let me know in comments. There is no way I am going back over that nonsense. I also missed the group hug above. Did Bethenny ever join in? I’m going with no.
