I am so weary.
So very weary.
Is this over yet? I just want it to be over. I don’t think I will ever watch this franchise again.
It’s time to talk about the Amish shunning that Bethenny orchestrated against Sonja this season. I never had a problem with Bethenny bitching out Sonja for her stupid business deal with the housewife clinging idiot. She knew exactly what she was doing and Bethenny was right to ream her out for it. What she did wrong was to threaten all the other castmates into excluding her from filming. Sonja needs the paycheck and she has a kid. That was a bitch move by Bethenny. Before you put this season behind you, you really need to read this tutorial on SkinnyGirl v Tipsy Girl. Everyone applauds Sonja for quitting drinking. Ramona hasn’t been asked about anything I can remember in a single segment. So she keeps trying to pipe in about issues that don’t concern her. Apparently, Ramona was in on the deal with Peter at first but for some reason backed out. Dorinda says that Bethenny did call and say she was coming whoever she decides to invite. Everyone said they excluded her because of her drinking. Even Dorinda and Ramona who both drink like fishes.
Sonja has a crying meltdown because she wasn’t invited to the Berkshires. She blames Dorinda. Sonja tries to do a dramatic walkout but the cameras are not following so she doesn’t make it off the stage.

This is going to be a long, long post because there are two Bravolebs tonight. So forgive me if I try to make it as short as possible and don’t feed you every detail. Please fill in any interesting things I leave out in comments for those who can’t watch the show.
Andy is dying to know if Kate is still a lesbian. She says “I’m single right now. And I’m not really preferential right now, it’s just about the person” The good news is she got some gay moves down pat before she goes to prison, should it come to that.
I can answer all the dumb wedding questions that Andy is asking Lu about the wedding. The Count and Jacques are both invited. They have met each other. Randy Raum will be doing her three wedding dresses. She is not going to register because they have everything they need. Donations to charities and American Cancer Society instead. She will be on a yacht for her honeymoon.
Luann’s dress needed a bold steam and looks a bit matronly, I think it might be the necklace. She needed to bust out one of her fabulous statement necklaces. I blame Amy Phillips for the lack of statement necklace tonight. Damn you Amy Phillips! I actually have a peridot and amethyst one I could have loaned her to compliment that burnt orange.
Luann hopes that she and Bethenny will be friends again. WHY? Luann, why???? Luann’s sister Renee is in the audience. She is wearing a statement necklace.
Well, it’s time to get started and I was behind on Big Brother and off to a late start. If you missed Part 1 and all four thousand comments, well either count your blessings or click here.
We start tonight with the love story that Bethenny hoped would be her married man storyline. We are reminded that he is in love with her and wants to marry her and she has changed her mind about never getting married again. Carole’s response was that was too much too fast. Not at all what she wanted her minion to say. It seems if no one is going to be happy to hear Bethenny has found love then no damn body will be happy about anyone finding love this season! Both Carole and Ramona are beaming from ear to ear hearing that Bethenny is in love.
We get to hear the sob story about Bethenny’s fibroids. Bethenny gets emotional because her mother never told her about any of this stuff. I don’t think I’ve ever cried about my mother not telling me about menopause. I did cry when the crazy came and it was a lot like what my mother was like at this age. I wish I would have been kinder to her. Then she tells the reaching out to her mother story and the apartment story. I am unmoved by Bethenny’s multiple sob stories. Someone videoed her returning to the apartment. Bethenny says that basically that Dennis wants to get married so she wants to fulfill his desires. She says Dennis is amused by her bad behavior on the show.
Konichiwa and Shalom, it’s time for Jules. I admit I’ve been saying Konichiwa and Shalom since I watched this video. Of course nothing is about anyone but Bethenny this season, her whole montage is about Bethenny and Carole mocking her eating disorder. Jules is very embarrassed by the montage of Michael and his clear signs of an affair all season. Countdown until someone says the wife is always the last to know. Andy asks about her marriage and she can barely speak through her tears. She says there were problems this year and what we saw on the show doesn’t represent their ten year marriage. Andy asks about the allegation of his cheating and her somehow physically abusing him. She says you can’t believe everything you read and that she can’t talk about it.
I am still a bit confused about why the Tom thing is such a big deal. I get it. We’ve addressed it and tonight, we get to talk about this whole thing some more. On the bright side, Batshit Bethenny is good ratings, both for Bravo and for me, so YAY! But I am not quite ready to do this all over again tonight.
Did I mention that Bethenny is going to be on WWHL with that shitbag misogynist guy? And I’m not talking about Andy this time. It’s a triumvirate of evil that I am not sure I can endure while on my new “no alcohol until you lose half your body weight lifestyle.” At least Andy didn’t add it on to the reunion and mess up my 10 pm recording block. (Tyrant, Masterchef)
So to prepare us all for this horsecrap Here is some comic relief by Amy Phillips. Who is a genius.
There has been a LOT of bullcrap rumors about the infamous kiss between Tom and a mystery woman now believed to be former playmate Deborah Diggs (Miss March 1990) at The Regency. There is a ridiculously fake text that has been floating around for a while now that mysteriously appeared after the infamous finale that is still racking up comments here. Once the theory was put forward that production was the person who fed Bethenny the information, the fake text says that Luann and Tom were filmed on the infamous Wednesday night and Luann left and Tom stayed at the bar. I do not believe this. First of all if production had filmed they would have shown that with some sort of dramatic “Luann and Tom before the betrayal” crap on screen. They would have shown a happy Luann, completely unaware that Tom was about to suck face with another woman over and over and over. By Wednesday night, most of all the crew was in Miami getting releases from hotels and clubs they planned to film. Footage of Lu and Tom getting a drink at the bar would not be something they would send a crew to at that point in the season.
Also it was a ridiculous exchange by two ditzy females where one tells the other she met someone who knows someone who she really, really believes who said production was there after Lu left having drinks. Also unlikely crew would break down and put all of the cameras and filming items in the van if they were going out afterward on a Wednesday night, they would go to one of their usual places. In reality, it was a Wednesday and they had to work the next day either in NYC or Miami so any late night drinking probably did not happen at all. I do not believe the texts. There is no other information other than, production stayed and they were wondering how to get the info to Bethenny. How did this mysterious person that someone just happened to meet overhear all of that, and not mention seeing Tom and Deborah at all? It’s horseshit. You can believe it if you want, but I don’t.
I firmly believe that Bethenny had someone tailing Tom ever since she found out Luann was dating him. And it finally paid off. Perhaps with a little help from some LA contacts.
I totally forgot that it was time for the Real Housewives of New York Reunion tonight. I’ve been doing backend work on the site coding and other mind numbing stuff. I’m brain dead and the reunions are the most time consuming things to recap. I’m sure I will have to block a lot of commenters coming on to explain how they are editors and I got a name wrong. I may just start blocking people just as a stress reliever. Fair warning.
Dorinda looks beautiful. Carole was fortunate enough to have access to the wardrobe from the documentary, The Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Andy asks about Bethenny’s divorce as at that time it was very close to being done. Bethenny refuses to discuss her new man. Which is HILAR because she just went on a long rant about how she is an open book and everyone else has crime scene tape around certain aspects of their lives.
Then he asks about Jules divorce making sure to point out that Michael filed. Dorinda says things are still good with John. We get a whole montage of John drama. Dorinda wanted to quit the show the first time they came for John. Andy brings up Bethenny’s insinuations that John and Dorinda do coke. She admits it. Dorinda says that she and John have never socialized with Bethenny and she has no idea about her life. Dorinda says maybe she is projecting her lifestyle around her pool on to but Bethenny doesn’t know her life. Bethenny looks at Dorinda and says threatening, “Do you want to go there or do you not want to go there?” Ramona can be barely heard from the inner workings Bethenny’s bowels to say to Andy, “next question” as if she is somehow running the show from Bethenny’s anus. Andy points out Bethenny made the accusations on the show and this is the reunion. Bethenny says she’s not there to ruin peoples lives.
