Real Housewives of New York Recap: All The Countess’s Men

RHONY season 8

Right now some dudes in California are plundering around in my site because, we’re all moving to California! I am getting off the crappy hosting site that is Blue Host and moving on up to a deluxe apartment in the sky with Page.ly.  Once I get settled in I am going to have to fix the crappy template.  So I am writing this on Google Docs in hopes that I can put it up when I am done. I don’t think we will officially be California residents until probably tomorrow or Friday. I’m quite errrr…hefty to move.

I am thrilled to be back in NYC with the RHONY tonight though. This is my favorite housewives franchise that is currently airing. I can’t wait to see Bethenny set Sonja straight because she needs a good dose of reality.

Dorinda

Dorinda and Jules are shopping in a bizarre home goods store in the city where boobs and pills seem to be the primary thematic choices. There is some sort of gift exchange party where they all had to draw names and buy gifts. I believe it is near Christmas. I thought the Berkshires party was in October around Halloween. Jules missed the entire thing at John’s party because when shit starts to go down, she “protects her facial and runs for the hills.”  Does she wear a retainer her speech is all hissy. Dorinda is done with Ramona. Dorinda is wearing a loud pink dress in her talking head. I think it looks lovely on her. Not a fan of the earrings with that dress though.

Dorinda says “Maybe Ramona wants to sleep with John. Maybe I should just let that happen. And then everyone will be happy. She has like a total hard-on for John. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Tipsying Point

RHONY season 8

 

It’s time for another episode of RHONY and I am not sure I have slept since the last one.  I am trying to deal with backend problems on the site and I am going to pass out right after this recap. Forgive me if it doesn’t make any sense.

Sonja

We see Sonja getting a placenta facial. The massage person gets a lot of promotional time in exchange for her free services to Sonja. Ramona is having some sort of get together. I swear my brains are mush and I can barely follow this.

Carole

Oh look, we are in the kitchen at Carole’s apartment. It’s like the writers totally forgot the “Carole got rid of her kitchen storyline.  Jules is there and we are definitely going to have to listen to eating disorder conversations. Oh wait, it is even worse than that. It’s  psychic party. Bethenny arrives with Skinnygirl product placement.

The psychic tells Jules she is going to do great things for women’s rights. For some reason I feel like I am going to throw up. Like seriously. Nothing to do with the show. We get the psychic reading and the whole coins and balloons stories.  We have heard all of this before. The psychic says that her dead husband says John is fine for now but he can’t give her the safety she needs.  (update: did throw up, feel better now).  The best part of this scene is Bethenny’s talking heads. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Birthday Bashing

RHONY season 8

 

Bethenny

Bethenny is obsessed with Brynn. It’s cute. She’s pacing up to go on at trip with Brynn? I don’t think she is allowed to film per Jason’s orders.

Okay I am done recapping and this packing scene had absolutely nothing to do with anything at all this episode. I guess they just needed a Bethenny scene and stuck it in as filler. Did I miss something?

Dorinda

Carole and Dorinda out to lunch. Carole starts right in talking about Jules’ house.  And her body. Carole talks about who ate what.  Then she says the energy may have been off because of John. Dorinda did not like that one bit. She has decided to just not bring John around the girls. Good idea.

Jules arrives to lunch and Carole acts like she wasn’t just trash talking her. But we move on to Jules talking about how critical Bethenny was of her home.  Carole of course defends Bethenny. Jules says she is old money and Bethenny is new money. You know Jules, when you start a new job you need to check the lay of the land and find out who is tight with the higher ups. Then you steer clear of them and try not to trash talk them. Jules says she wants to sit down and chat with Bethenny. Oh Jules, I’m not sure you are up to that.

Carole Radziwill Is Offended. Chronically Offended.

RHONY Carole

 

“Move on,” says the woman who still calls herself a Countess more than a half-decade after her marriage ended. If she was going for comedy, I’d laugh. Really, I would. We’d all laugh, but she isn’t.

Wow, someone is really fixated on the Countess thing. What difference does it make to you if she calls herself the Queen of England?

“Moving on” is a concept invented by Housewives. Housewives who behave so appallingly all they can do is say they are moving on, preferably in a place where everyone can hear them.

Really? You think the housewives invented moving on? The large majority of people in therapy are there because they can’t move on. The loss of a loved one,  childhood trauma, divorce, losing out on a big promotion, getting fired, whatever the issue is, the goal of therapy is to put a period to mark the end and move on.

To stay put and acknowledge that their actions have consequences and to accept responsibility is simply too painful for this particular brand of narcissist. And not only do they say they’ve moved on, they actually brag about it. They are proud of their ability to move on. “Look how evolved I am,” they seem to be saying, “I can simply move on without regrets.”

They should be proud. The ability to move on is a valuable life skill.

WWHL With Carole Radziwill and Ryan Serhant

WWHL With Carole Radzi and

 

I totally forgot about this show today.  I’m going to hit the highlights because it is ShondaLand Thursday.

Carole doesn’t think Luann was jealous about her dating the chef, she just thinks she was in a bad place in her life and took it out on her.

I know I watched the first episode of MDLNY but I don’t remember Luis firing his entire staff. Maybe that happens tonight?  And why is Ryan’s fiancée butting in to Luis’ business tonight. I do not think I will like her this season.

Carole says she didn’t say bad things about Luann, but she did retweet a lot stuff that her fans said about Luann when Luann was  mean tweeting her. I missed all of this back and forth but even recently I think Carole was mean tweeting someone.

Carole thinks that John and Dorinda are in many ways a good match. It does seem they have lots of things in common.

Carole Radziwill Is No Fan of Jules Wainstein

RHONY Carole Rad

Say what you will about Carole Radziwill, but she is one of the few housewives who writes her own blog and does it well. As we are trying to decide how we feel about Jules, Carole has filmed the entire season with her and has mad her assessment.  And she doesn’t hold back on het blog on last week’s episode entitled The Biggest Boob.

Here is an excerpt.

But if Ramona is the Double-D of boobs, Jules comes in second at Double C. Thing is, Jules is cute and nice and easy to laugh. She had me at hello, but she lost me somewhere between menopause and mom.

I must have missed the whole, “had you at hello” part. Because both you and Bethenny seem to have an agenda to imply that she is the one with the eating disorder.

I wasn’t even going to mention this because really, who cares? But from here on in I’ve decided I want to be offended…by everything. Offended that Ramona is offended that I was offended by her constant talking. Offended that Dorinda says Ramona and I can’t be friends. Offended that Bethenny offended Snoopy. Oh, yeah, and offended that Jules seems to have age-shaming Tourettes. These women could be my mom. They’ve gone off their menopause meds. The elderly. As the kids say, what up? It’s only the third episode.

Offended is the new black. It’s standing room only on that train.
