It’s time for Andy’s favorite moment of the season, when Bethenny rips Lu’s heart out of her chest and eats it. It has come down to this because Luann has remained unbothered by each and every escalating attack all season even when the entire pack has attacked at once. Luann must pay, so Bethenny has put out feelers or perhaps hired a P.I. to tail Tom and get her some dirt. If you don’t believe that, then you must believe Bethenny has lots of friends who happen to be strategically located wherever Tom is who feel comfortable calling a woman with a small child sleeping in the house at 2 a.m. If you believe that you must also believe that Bethenny has tons of friends who are mutual acquaintances of every who just so happen to tell her about things like Jules marriage.
Speaking of Bethenny, I have been asleep for almost 18 hours, I woke up to several emails saying that Bethenny is thinking of leaving the show because she is butthurt over the reunion and some legal issues with Bravo. While I could see her quitting over the first one, if you go to the ET story that is the source, she is referring to the fact that some of the other housewives refuse to show all of their personal lives on the show and keep some things “behind a do not cross police line.” That’s an odd comment from someone whose ex husband wisely will not let her pimp her daughter on the show. Bethenny wants to control her edit and she clearly can’t do that on RHONY. If she leaves, it will be because she has a radio show now, where she has total control of the content. That said, Bethenny’s dramatic comments always seem to come on a show day. Take that as you will.
And now, I am going to try to do a decent job on this recap as I get it is a very important episode. But, I’m working at half speed so apologies in advance.
It must be so infuriating for Luann to post all of these great photos of her new adventures with Tom, only to have people who have no idea about their relationship leaving nasty comments. It’s clear as day they are together all the time, and constantly traveling and spending a lot of time on Tom’s boats when they are in New York. Whether or not Tom sucked face with a playboy bunny two days before the engagement party, they’ve clearly moved past whatever dirt Bethenny dug up on Tom. Luann is clearly happier than she’s been in years. Why do so many people have to be so critical of their relationship. They look happy in the Hamptons over the weekend. They looked happy all over the world in the last month. They seem happy to me, and yet this seems to make a lot of people miserable.
Let’s take a look at her most recent blog.
LU: It’s one thing to rock the boat and another to sink the ship.
Actually, rocking the boat is bad enough. Why not just be happy for Lu?
LU: I had a lot of fun with the girls even though Ramona and Sonja wouldn’t stop obsessing about Tom. I felt bad that I lost my temper with Ramona, but I’d had enough of her making a couple of dates with Tom into something it wasn’t.
We are back on the yacht for Luann’s engagement party, but unfortunately no one really seems happy for her. I continue to be shocked that some of y’all think Luann is “too happy” and “too excited” about her engagement. I am thrilled that there is actually a happy storyline that is not about someone’s vagina.
Ramona continues to stir the shit about the engagement despite having no real relationship with Tom herself. I can understand Sonja having some emotions lingering about Tom, but Ramona needs to have several seats.
Luann’s friend the “yacht owner” is rather um, interesting.
Ramona has to get right in front of the camera to interrupt Tom who is speaking to a party guest with Luann by his side. She literally sticks her head under Luann’s armpit to jockey for position. Tom is super uncomfortable around Sonja. Ramona is making a huge scene talking to some woman about how she met Tom ten years ago in a bar and they have been out several times. First of all, the meeting was filmed on camera and he didn’t seem to have any interest in Ramona who was married to her cheating husband at the time. Ramona is really trying to make make her relationship with Tom into more than just a dinner date or two. Ramona thinks Tom is flirting with her. She is also dancing alone while apparently extremely intoxicated.
Why is Carole making a big deal out of Tom telling Ramona that she smells like a grapefruit? Why is everything such a huge deal with these women? Ramona is busy trash talking Luann to Carole saying that she is very insecure and so is Tom. Ramona is so delusional. Dorinda gives a completely incoherent toast to the future bride and groom.

A TamaraTattles commenter has sent me the following recap of party of Bethenny’s radio show this week. I am not sure how or if she wants to be identifed. I’ll let her out herself in comments if she wants to. Meanwhile, I pulled out my purple pen to respond to all the tea!
I only listened for maybe 45 minutes in the car (wasting gas) during her two-hour show. It was broadcast from the Hamptons. Carole was on in the beginning of the show, not really saying much except agreeing with Bethenny and still complaining about Lu’s opinions and lies on Carole and Adam. (Yawn). Carole was sitting there during the whole show.
Let’s think for a moment about how Luann handles the RHONY meddling in her relationship compared to how Carole deals with Luann’s comments about her May-December romance with her niece’s former boyfriend that she met in her home. First of all, Carole’s relationship impacted Luann’s family. Luann’s relationship with Tom had zero impact on Carole’s world. Carole won’t shut up about Luann trash talking her for picking up her niece’s boyfriend in her own house. Luann on the other hand says that she while she hoped her “friends” would be happy for her, their attempts to sabotage her relationship with Tom are falling on deaf ears. They are happy, and traveling the world and preparing to get married while the bitter Bettys try to bring her down. If Carole was happy with Adam, she’d just ignore Luann who has not mentioned a word about her relationship with Adam this season.

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?

How many times is Ramona contractually obligated to point out that “she” got everyone suites? We get it. The hotel is paying for the promotion. Enough. Of course Carole and Bethenny plan to sleep together. They immediately start talking about the others. Carole offers up Dorinda as a pot stirrer and Bethenny jumps right on board. Bethenny is going to torture Sonja less than usual on this trip.
Dorinda shares that she used to be a step aerobics instructor. So Bethenny needs to one up Dorinda and do a yoga move, a headstand no less on the restaurant floor. I can’t believe they are taping at a black jack table. I thought that was illegal. Does that mean they are not actually betting in this scene? Bethenny announces she is too rich to gamble and goes to bed.
That was the most noneventful housewives trip ever. I suppose it is because the Mexico trip was cancelled and this was the replacement and they didn’t have time to script any fights.
Carole’s agent says he likes the cookbook idea but he is concerned because it is a long term project. In other words, he doesn’t think the relationship will still be around when the book launches. Neither one of them seem to think the relationship will be still going on in a year. I suppose that depends on if Carole is still a housewife that can promote Adam.
