Real Housewives of New York Recap: Finally, An Actual BBQ!

RHONY Bethenny BBQ
This week on RHONY we are back at the Hamptons where the new Bethenny is the type to throw herself a birthday party. It’s apparently a new Bravo requirement that every season of every franchise must attempt a “BBQ.” Who knows what this one will be like. Bethenny’s house at the Hamptons is so pretty. I have been having a lot of house envy lately. She has her outside bar just like LVP!

John has no memory of his argument with Bethenny or agreeing to apologize the night before.

Bethenny is having a real BBQ with a giant oil drum BBQ with rotating rows of grills inside. This looks amazing. Carole plans to keep a friendly distance from Luann. Ramona shows up with case of Corona’s instead of Pinot Grigio. This is officially a real BBQ!  There are Moscow Mules and spiked hot chocolate served in gorgeous copper mugs. This is probably the first housewives party I would want to go to! I’m in love with this whole thing.

John is making Bethenny super uncomfortable. He’s creeping around the edges of the party. Luann arrives with a hula hoop for  reasons that are unclear. There are two seating areas. Bethenny is in one, John  in the other. Luann joins the group with John to avoid Carole.  As people start to mill around Dorinda continues to be John to go apologize to Bethenny. After a drink are two, John hollers across the yard for Bethenny to “come here.” We go to commercial but I’d throw him out for that. He just needs to go. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: The Biggest Boob

RHONY season 8


We are back in the middle of Bethenny and Ramona being horrible excuses for human beings by publicly attacking Dorinda for her choice of boyfriend.  Since last week Bethenny has supposedly blocked DORINDA  on Twitter. This is beyond storyline.  Jules is out with Dorinda supporting her while she has a cigarette When Dorinda comes back in Bethenny apologizes and tells Dorinda she went too far. Then she tells Dorinda who she should be madder at. Then Bethenny has to coach Ramona through how to apologize.

While trying on bras Carole calls Jules a toothpick. Carole is way smaller than Jules.

Dorinda is pissed and doesn’t want to stay at Ramona’s in the Hamptons. Dorinda calls John and he answers the phone while she has it on speaker by saying, “How many bitches talked smack about me…”  He sounds trashed and Dorinda is calling him to come pick her up. John bursts into the party and accuses Bethenny of stealing the brand SkinnyCow.  She points out that Nestle bought that brand and it is a different brand that her brand, Skinny Girl.  She then says he’s a cow and she’s a girl. There is a difference there.  John is a gross drunken ass who is very confrontational with Bethenny who starts giving it back to him. Dorinda is terrified and she tells John to get out and she is done with him. Bethenny says, basically, and this is the problem we have with your boyfriend. Dorinda seems to be as drunk as he is. Dorinda says she will never be around him again. Bethenny ends up comforting drunk Dorinda. Dorinda is miserable. That was uncomfortable to watch.

This Week’s Bethenny Frankel Drama Is Ridiculous, And Completely Fabricated

RHOBH Bethenny

Last weekend Bethenny Frankel, an extremely successful self-made business woman, was asked to speak at some sort of “womens’ empowerment” function.  I’m sure that she will not be quick to share her advice in the future, because all of last week, she was dragged through the mud by idiots.  The instigator of all the hoopla is some random woman named Mary Pryor. She attended the event and  was  offended.

There are sure a lot of people being offended lately. Day after day here at Tamara Tattles there are more and more people offended by something I said,  or something somebody else said, or their comments being moderated, their perceptions of my opinions on reality TV shows….and a plethora of other topics.  They experience at lot of FEELINGS they feel compelled to share with me. It’s tiresome.

Before I address the Bethenny situation, let’s first define what it means to be offended. When a person says they are offended, what they are saying is that someone has hurt their big fat feelings and now they are mad. Being offended by something is basically a precursor to whining.  What is even more loathsome is being offended by proxy. People who are offended by proxy rush in with all their feels to explain that something was done or said that may hurt the feelers of some other person or some group of people to which they do not belong. Inherent in “offense by proxy” is the belief that this poor beleaguered person group of people should be whining about something, but are too dumb, or disenfranchised, or downtrodden that they cannot be offended without their help. That is in itself, or at least it could be, offensive to the party they are speaking for. There are throngs of people, particularly on the Internet that never miss an opportunity to be offended. More often than not, they are whining by proxy for someone they don’t know.

Real Housewives on New York Recap: “An Intimate Affair”



I really happy to have RHONY back, but already it seems we are going to carry the deadly serious nature of who we choose to like or dislike over from RHOBH to RHONY.  Jules (and her husband’s ) less than perfect parenting techniques are already under attack. We already prove once again we don’t want to see rich people doing rich people things by getting outraged that wealthy NYC women have nannies and housekeepers. John is going to become the butt of all the jokes on each episode. And tonight, Bethenny is going to throw a BBQ in the Hamptons. When has a housewife ever even known what a BBQ is? I can hardly wait to see what Bethenny things a BBQ is.


Jules was up cooking breakfast in the first scene. She seemed like a domestic goddess and then she says she doesn’t know how to make coffee and blows the entire farce.  Who the hell bathes kids in the morning. Why not do that before bed?


Bethenny is have a “tailgate chic” party at her house in the Hamptons to celebrate her birthday. Basically because she wants an excuse to use her fire pits. I can live with that rationale. Who doesn’t love a good fire pit?  Why would Dorinda and John stay at Ramona’s place when Dorinda has a place there too? Oh wait. Her house is in the Berkshires.  Bethenny is suspicious of Dorinda’s motivations for hard selling John. Carole shows up and I am still not sure where these ladies are. Wherever they are, Carole immediately starts talking about how Ramona never shuts up.  Bethenny says every time she invests in Ramona she gets burned. Dorinda says that Ramona has never burned her in 20 years. #Foreshadowing. Then we talk about Dorinda Nairing John’s back hair and I’m kind of nauseated.

Bethenny Frankel On WWHL

WWHL Bethenny


Sorry for the delay but WWHL right after RHONY is just too much at once. I need that hour in between to pee and freshen my drink, and well, things got out of hand after that.

Bethenny gets bleeped for referring to Jules as “JAPPY”.  She is referring to the term Jewish American Princess (JAP) a pejorative term for Jewish women who marry rich men and life a life of leisure. Jules also happens to be part Japanese which makes it all even messier.

Andy ran a clip of Luann and Sonja talking about Luann’s bony mouth with references to Grey Gardens. I still don’t think Sonja got that shade when he said it directly to her face.

Next he plays the montage of Bethenny insulting everyone over a tower of seafood.

It looks like this season is going to be heavy on the storyline that Dorinda’s boyfriend John is kind of a dick.

Bethenny is asked why she would insult someone for being  skinny given her brand.  She says “watch what happens!”

Bethenny says that Carole and Adam are the unexpected couple of the century. It sounds like the real deal.

Real Housewives of New York Premiere Recap: Start Spreading The News

RHONY season 8


I am so excited for this season premiere. I am so excited about Tamara Tattles and all the success that you guys have given me. It’s been a very busy week for me not just all the stuff I have been posting but from a business standpoint, so many milestones have happened in April. I’m doing a bit of celebrating tonight so forgive me if this is a little wonky. I am sure all the idiots will be out in force about all the typos. Let me tell you to fuck off in advance. Thanks for al the retweets and Facebook shares y’all do every day. It really does help!

I already went through the first ten minutes here. So I shall sip my drink with both eyes on the TV for a change. Fun fact, Sonja Morgan favorite that post. Yet my sources tell me she is NOT a fan of Tamara Tattles.  I think she just liked that the title was a quote from her. OH OH OH and also Kristen somebody from Page Six who writes stories about RHONY from Sonja’s perspective also hates me. How cool is that!  Did I mention I’ve been celebrating? I tend to overshare when this happens. But hearing about the Sonja/Kristen connection reminded me of Phaedra’s little delusional friend who also writes for Page Six.   Before I started blogging and having great sources,  I used to think that Page Six and Wendy William and TMZ and some other places were like the gossip gospel. But Page Six especially. It’s weird being on the other side of the curtain.  Anyway, less celebrating and kiki-ing with you guys (had to hyphenate because … well just trust me). and more recapping.

I think the guy from central casting seated next to Ramona at the bar  is HOT!.  I’d like him to play the role of.. um. Let me hush.
