Sorry for the delay, I have started GOING OUT INTO THE WORLD again. I was actually hanging with a couple of housewives…. I will tell you all about it this weekend. 🙂 Now on to RHONY..
Tinsley has arrived in the city! And she is moving in with Sonja. Spoiler alert! Blind Item reveal! Sonja whisks her off to stay in her daughters room, why? Is that the only furnished guest room in the whole five story townhouse? Sonja is in a short sleeve top so maybe she has the heat working this year. Tinsley apparently went to see Sonja in her play before she “arrived to live with Sonja.” That’s weird.
Sonja is trying to help Tinsley find a man. She grabs pen and paper to make of list of her requirements. When we get to the part where Tinsley says she wants to have kids, Sonja and I say in unison, “How old are you???” She’s 41 but she froze her eggs. She’s going to be 60 at the kids graduation. These women and their unreasonable expectations. Tinsley then gives a sanitized version of her arrest and expresses shame over the screwball eyebrows in the mugshot. I say good for her for owning the situation and moving on.
Tinsley is so happy to be back in the city. She goes to a fur salon to try on new coats. You go girl. So far, she has said, “Yeah, I have a crazy mug shot, whatever!” And fuck you PETA a bitch needs to stay warm. I think I’m going to like her. I love the pink and green dress with the pockets. She totally needs to get that.
Hopefully, it is Halloween, because it seems to be at Bethenny’s house. Bethenny doesn’t seem to be feeling Carole this season. I wonder if it is because of Carole’s constant political talk? That seems to have come between a lot of people lately. Right after Carole arrives, in walks Ramona who pisses off Bethenny right away by refusing to take off her shoes so she doesn’t step on the new dogs. Then she steps on the dog. Why does Bethenny have dogs that have to be gated out of the living area? Dear God. Bethenny has bitched at Carole about nothing and now Ramona is starting a fight because Bethenny didn’t send her photos of her dogs when she got them. Is this going to be a season of just random bickering? Bethenny tells Carole she thinks there is something wrong with Ramona. Um, hello? Are you just meeting Ramona?
Ramona of course starts talking about Luann and Tom. Because that is all that they have going on this season it seems. Ramona denies calling people and investing things and Carole claims “no one is doing that.” Um, Carole, yes they are and their name is Ramona.
Finally a break from Luann and Tom to talk about Tinsley. They are basically going over this post. Carole says that she is she is having an election party. Both Bethenny and Ramona give the impression they are tired of hearing about Hillary. Ramona even says it will be interesting to see what happens with her email scandal. I’m a bit shocked. I thought all the NYC folks were very pro Hillary. Then again, there were a lot of people supporting both candidates who just never shut the hell up about the election. I way over hearing about it; however, I am glad they included it in this season because it was a big world event and as much as some of us might like to, we can’t pretend it didn’t happen. Plus Carole has a huge meltdown, so that might be fun. Ah, there it is. Bethenny doesn’t like that Carole is more well-versed in politics than the rest of them.
I love Bethenny’s commitment to Dress for Success and how she is using her air time to promote the charity. Around this time things started to go south with Dennis and Bethenny. Not sure what happened. Maybe the idea of spending a lot of time with Bethenny was better than the actual practice of doing so. Bethenny is going to the Hamptons for the weekend and Dennis will likely be there according to Bethenny. They’ve been seeing each other for about a year. Bethenny indicates that all of the drama with Jason is problematic. That was still going on recently, as Bethenny and Dennis claim that Jason emails them both a lot.
It took me a minute to get totally on the Dorinda train, but I’m on it now and I anticipate being Team Dorinda all season. Especially because she is going to stick up for Luann. I love Luann. Ramona is meeting Dorinda for Cryotherapy. Dorinda is a big fan, but Ramona has never done it so Dorinda conspires with the tech so that she will not tell Ramona how cold it is. Ramona arrives ready for one of her imaginary dates, so she is not going to try it anyway. Ramona talks to Dorinda about….wait for it…Tom. The jealousy from Sonja and Ramona is just over the top. I am not saying they wanted to marry Tom per se but they both really want to remarry. Dorinda is still hugely pissed at Sonja for all the drug allegations she keeps making about her. Dorinda will be on the outs with both Ramona and Sonja for most of this season.
Later we get a cute scene with Dorinda shopping for furniture with her daughter. I feel like her daughter has grown four years since last season. Kids grow up so fast!
Sonja’s Mad Hatter Party
Sonja told everyone to dress colorfully for the party, so Ramona obviously wore black head to toe. Sonja has borrowed the butler, Patrick Henry, for the event. Patrick Henry is a bitter little gossip. He seems to really hate Ramona. I get it. But darling, you are the help.
Sonja is still snubbing Dorinda over not inviting her to the Berkshires last year. Dorinda invites her this year, and regrets it. Where did Bethenny get a friend? Who is this Teri person? I guess she needed someone to trash Sonja’s party to in the car. Usually that is the driver’s job, so I am sure he is relieved to have an extra ear for all of Bethenny’s frenzied chatter.
Ramona tells Carole that she had invited both Dorinda and Sonja to stay with her at her Hamptons house. When Dorinda said she wasn’t coming if Sonja was staying there, Ramona uninvited Sonja. What the heck is going on this season? Why is Ramona choosing Dorinda over Sonja?Ramona tells Carole that she is wearing the horrendous black scarf around her neck to hide her hickeys. Do people really do the whole hickey thing after age 25?
Of course Sonja has a psychic at her little tea party. Ramona has to love that. It was after all a psychic in Morocco who told her that Mario was cheating on her. I wonder what gossip Sonja has fed to this psychic? And Bethenny absolutely brought a huge basket of product to place on the table for free advertising. Bethenny gives Tinsley the cold shoulder.
Oh Luann, sweetie. There were so many really fun hat options that looked great on you? How did you possibly leave that store with this one? You are already walking into the lioness’ den. And who did you bring? Luann and Bethenny are not getting along. Is Bethenny getting along with anyone?
Sonja and Luann argue over Sonja’s constant negative statements to Page Six about Luann’s marriage. I just can’t keep retyping the same old Tom drama. Bethenny literally wanders around spewing her “british humor” at everyone.
Next week: The bitchfest moves to the Hampton’s. Ramona tells Bethenny, “You’re in the press now for being naked and doing soft core porn. You’re coming across very cold ..” Dorinda and Sonja go after each other.
This show would probably have been fun to watch while half sleeping, but recapping it after being out tonight was tedious. I just couldn’t keep typing the same old fights from 2015 over and over. Sorry.
