We are back at the birthday party for Dorinda where Heather and Bethenny have both burst into tears after an argument. And just as suddenly as the tears came Bethenny has suddenly decided she wants to give Heather a hug. So they hug it out. Do you think Bethenny realized she was looking like a bitch? Are is she hormonal like some of us? What the hell are those weird green statues on the shelf in the dining room? They are creepy and wonderful all at once! Bethenny tells us in her talking head how much pressure she is under.
I forgot how drunk everyone was. Sake was not a good idea for this crowd. Luann stands up and walks over to John and gives him some sort of condescending speech about how she likes him, sort of. Apparently, that was supposed to be a toast. Not to be outdone, Ramona gives a toast. Then Bethenny gives a toast to the party saying when Sonja is the sanest person in the room, we’ve had a good party. Bethenny is still doing sake shoots. She says to Sonja, she doesn’t think she is a good dinner party guest.
They separate into two camps one for Heather and one for Bethenny. Clearly, the hug didn’t last long. They are all drunk. I doubt Bethenny will remember this in the morning.
Back in NYC, Ramona goes to pick up Avery for winter break. They literally ran toward each other and hugged. It was so sweet. Avery has a paper to turn in by tonight. They start semi arguing in the car. That hug didn’t last long either. I love seeing New York decorated for Christmas. I’m glad they are back to cold weather filming in NYC.
Ramona tries to talk to Avery about Mario “trying to reconcile with her.” Avery wants no part of the conversation. Avery says she should do whatever makes her happy. She is a grown up, she can handle kit. Avery seems a bit teary in the conversation. Avery has grown into a wise and lovely young lady. Continue reading

And it just and example of the utter ridiculousness of this show. You won’t believe what Reid does while the two are pretend to be each other in an argument.
So I just locked comments on the last RHONY recap. I am done. I am not TMZ or Radar Online, I’m just a fat chick sitting on my couch trying to deal with a hormonal storm that likes to take over my brain from time to time. For me, reality TV back when is was reality TV was about getting to be a fly on the wall of other people my age(ish) with The Real World. I loved the concept of having a camera on the lives of others. It was interesting. It was a learning experience.
I think I am having my Perez Hilton moment. I never really read there but even I knew he was famous for drawing penises on pictures and saying shitty things about people. I’m not Perez Hilton, and that is something I can put in my gratitude journal. Continue reading
I’m a couple of minutes late to the party because apparently my DVR didn’t realize it needed to start recording this tonight. I already have Dance Moms and Dangerous Grounds at this time, so things were a bit hectic for a minute. Um, Sonja has more men coming than going. That ladies and gentleman is the first Ramonaism of the season.
All the girls are hating on Aviva in the first five minutes at two locations. Is this really necessary? Why can’t there ever be a group of women who don’t all team up and choose a victim. Apparently, one of the men that Sonja has errrrr, coming is Aviva’s ex husband Harry. Actually half the cast has taken a ride on ole Harry, but let’s try not to think about that.
Heather is throwing herself a birthday party and it’s an all in event by Bravo. Sonja’s date is not Harry but some 20 something kid. You go Sonja. Sonja’s hairdo is um, fascinating. It’s a updo that probably started out alright until she and her boy had sex doggie style and rubbed the top of her head on the back seat of the limo repeatedly. I mean, they didn’t show that part of course, but based on the hair, that is what I imagine happened. Sonja’s boytoy has a wandering eye toward Kristen. She looked really hot at the party; however, I don’t think she is pretty in her talking heads and other shots. Kind of like Alicia on Mob Wives, you know how sometimes she is really pretty and other times not? It’s a weird thing.
Aviva is arriving after a long day stressed and late. Sonja and Ramona are already poisoning the new girl against Aviva. Sonja appears to have tried to fix her updo but managed to make it look worse. It’s distracting me. Carole looks horrible. Her face/skin looks horrible and her hair isn’t really done at all. I wonder what is going on there? She looked fine at the shoot for her book.

I probably try harder than anyone on the planet to defend Aviva Drescher. I really want to support her. I can defend her phobias, and her awkward social interactions. There is a whole lot one can overlook when someone has overcome the loss of a limb. The thing I find indefensible about Aviva is her father. Of all the issues that Aviva has to overcome to win a little support from the Real Housewives of New York fans, her father, George Teichner is her greatest obstacle.
For the life of me, I don’t understand why this 77-year-old pervert is back on Bravo next season. I just don’t get it. But not only is he back, he seems to be front and center in Aviva’s storyline again. It appears that this season, LuAnn de Lesseps throws a dignified luncheon at some fancypants NYC place and several of the housewives attend, including Aviva. Also invited to the luncheon is, Nana Meriwether who claimed the title of Miss USA in 2012 when Olivia Culpo was crowned Miss Universe. Continue reading
Carole Radziwill appeared on her local CBS affiliate WLNY to promote her new book, The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating. This fictional account of a young woman who suddenly becomes widowed, seems to pull a lot from her own life experiences as a young woman. Unlike the usual, “housewives books” Radziwill was an accomplished author before appearing on the Real Housewives of New York. Oddly, her success as an author is front and center as a dramatic storyline on season six of The Real Housewives of New York.
Radziwill generally tries to distance herself from the over the top drama that is the focal point of all the housewives franchises; however, according to Radziwill, Aviva Drescher says some “insulting and nasty” things to her that she just cannot let go. The word on the streets of NYC is that Aviva accuses Radziwill of using a ghost writer. Aviva herself has capitalized on her RHONY exposure by writing a memoir of her own entitled Leggy Blonde in which she details her own young life. One wonders if the whole ghost writer accusation comes from her own knowledge of the subject. It is clear that many women on the Real Housewives franchises have never read a book, let alone penned one. Ghost writers from New Jersey to Beverly Hills are quietly bemused that their work has landed atop a New York Times Best Seller List along the way. Continue reading
Well Lo and Behold! It’s a thirty minute sneak peek of the Real Housewives of New York City! Let’s see what the upcoming season looks like! Oh no she didn’t! Aviva‘s tagline is, “When people tell me I’m fake, I know they’re just pulling my leg.” I die! By the way, if you are new here, nice to meet you, I am Aviva’s only fan. Try to be kind to her. Fine, I said try. I get it. I will like her all by myself. Speaking of taglines, Carole‘s is, “If you are going to talk about me behind my back, at least check out my great ass!” Heather‘s is, “A true New Yorker never backs down, and I’m no exception. Holla!” OMFG. I hate the new girl, Kristen, already because she is friends with Brandi. But her tagline cemented my hatred for her even more, “I may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’m pretty!” I already think she is just a tool, and the other girls are prettier than she is. Ramona‘s tagline is, “Get the Pinot ready, because it’s Turtle Time!” And finally, Sonja‘s tagline, “Sometimes Sonja has to go commando. What can I say?” Um, my Lord Sonja’s tagline is bad. Did everyone else’s mind go to yeast infection? No? Um, me neither.
Apparently, Andy is going to narrate the sneak peek with the vital information we need to know. He starts with Sonja, “For Sonja, last season was a scintillating roller coaster ride of sex and struggle. Somehow Sonja always lands on her feet. Here’s a taste of what to expect from Sonja.” Then we get scenes of Sonja with a new haircut (according to her, looks like the same haircut to me but what do I know?) and a string of new boyfriends most under the age of 30. Apparently, Kenya’s House of Boyfriends For Hire has opened a branch in Manhattan. Some of them are hot, and if she’s tapping that, then good for her! Sonja says this “This chassey still has some fire!” Does she mean chassis or am I learning a new word? Continue reading
