Perhaps our wildest dreams have come true. It seems that Ramona Singer went on an African Safari DURING FILMING and managed to get attacked by a lion or something. I’m not even kidding.
On Friday, Countess Luann called in to VH1′s The Gossip Table and spilled some interesting tea about what is going on with the current filming of RHONY… Continue reading
I admit it. I’ve gotten lazy during this whole Jodi Arias Trial. All I really had to do was put up a daily update and sit back and wait for folks to show up and discuss it to death in the comments. I suspect that a lot of my sources are busy with the trial too because there hasn’t been that much housewives stuff reported to me. To carry on with my lazy reporting, I’m going to do a hodge-podge of housewives updates here. Hopefully, my housewives fans are still out there and haven’t completely given up on me! Click through for the tea on RHONY, RHONJ, RHOM and RHOA. Continue reading

I hate when “people” steal my blogs and put them on their site. I always just link an excerpt and provide a link to the entire story. HOWEVER. This is the best RHONY blog I have ever read. It is too good just to excerpt. I want everyone to CLICK THIS LINK and read the whole thing. Then come back here and talk to me. BTW, I don’t believe Sonja knows a thing about the casting. That is not the point. The point is I think I might love this Roger Friedman guy and I bet you might too.
Alright let’s see how much of this “lost footage” needed to be found. So far the first clip about Ramona finding out about Aviva’s leg could stay lost.
Carole with the cute old mail guy was cute.
Sonja on a date…She’s very demanding. She tells the guy that sensual activities should stay behind closed doors because he kissed her on the cheek. Wonder what he thought of the trip to St. Bart’s footage. He’s like a lamb lining up to be slaughtered. But his name is Richard, and as a rule, that’s a bad enough sign right there. Continue reading
WordPress seems to have eaten my first paragraph. I’m sure it wasn’t important. Let’s just dive in. Luann and Jacques watched the pirate episode together! I’d love to have been a fly on that wall. But before we can get the dirt on that off camera event, Andy wants to stir the pot. So he reminds Ramona that she made a lot of comments about Luann being a girl who likes to party. Ramona says something that seemed innocent enough,”Luann loves her men and she can’t keep her hands off them. And you can take that however you want. That’s all I’ll say.” But this doesn’t sit well with the Countess (silent o). Luann sort of loses her cool and wants to know what Ramona is insinuating. Luann begins to strongly imply that she has all kinds of dirt on what Ramonja got up to on their nights out in St. Barths and that Ramona doesn’t want to go there. Luann tells Ramona, “You’re no goodie two shoes!” Ramona makes some out of the blue remark about never having been in an open relationship like Luann (And Carole, but she doesn’t mention Carole..yet). Luann is hurt by the comment and wants to know why Ramona is out for blood. Luann made a mistake and it was hard for her and Jacques to get past. I’m bored with this topic. Luann polished the pirate’s peg leg. Jacques still in the picture according to Luann. Andy invited Jacques to the reunion and he declined. That seems odd for someone who likes the camera as much as Jacques Move along, Andy. Continue reading
Andy asks Carole why she did the show. I loved her response. “As a journalist it appealed to me. Like most journalists we are attracted to spectacle. Whether it is politics or war. ” There has been speculation she was under cover on a journalism assignment. And they show the scene where Carole is all high and mighty about the term ‘Indian”. It’s hard to look worse than the Countess (silent o) but it seems Bravo is doing their best to make Carole look bad in this retrospective. I love Luann’s dress, btw. If I had the birth certificates on my Choctaw ancestors I would qualify for lots of money. Unfortunately, us Indians didn’t have birth certificates back then. I’m okay with Indian as a term Carole. While it is a misnomer, it’s what we have always called it.Technically this is Carole’s segment and Luann is trying to upstage her though. Something about earrings. As I pause the show Ramonja looks really bored waiting for their turn. ANNNNNND we have our first plug. It was from Luann for Life & Style. Carole is a fucking PRINCESS Luann. I don’t know why you think she borrows clothes. She fucking rich. Not Nene Leakes rich, but you know, ACTUALLY RICH. LOL Luann mentions Life & Style again. CONTRACT MUCH? To which Carole replies,” it’s not Vogue” Touche. We are really focused on Princess Carole from the outset. Makes sense she is much beloved and ratings gold for all of the opposite reasons housewives are usually loved. I am hoping Andy takes notice. Continue reading
Our friends over at Wetpaint have an exclusive story by Beth Sobol regarding yet another shakeup on RHONY. Their source seems to think another shake-up could be in the works for next season. This is great news! Or is it… Continue reading
Poor Sonja is not going to get what she wanted, or apparently much of anything, in the divorce. When I look at Sonja crying in her house, all I can think is yard sale. Take all those dresses to a consignment shop. Put some of those dust collecting tchotchkes on Ebay. Sell a few paintings. Clearly the toaster oven market is in a slump, Sonja! Think outside the toaster oven box! Luann was called in to hold her hand as she put a couple paintings in storage (read hides them from the property inventory) and the art woman (who is usually there to SELL paintings not store them) tried to paint the picture as a new beginning. Luann’s helpful comment? “It looks really empty in this room now.” The irony that Luann hawks an etiquette book is lost on no one by now.
I love that Heather (And Aviva) both have charities that they are passionate about. Most of the time the housewives just seem to “do charity work” by going to luncheons and writing the occasional check. Continue reading
I’m flustered at the moment over something that happened just prior to the show starting, so I seem to have missed the set up of why The Countess is in the kitchen. Has she ever cooked in her life? Oh wait, no, she is already ditching with Ramonja. I do not understand this ridiculous hair band shit that Sonja and others are wearing on national TV. It’s hideous. Just STOP IT! I don’t understand what the set up for this whole scene was, can someone explain it to me? Real Men Cook? is that a product promo for something? It seemed like an unnecessary ad.
Toast! (That’s my drinking word for tonight, sorry if this post gets incoherent before the end). So what if Aviva needs to be with Reid at all times? Aviva has safety issues, and rightly so, what the hell is it to you Ramonja? Let’s move on to the Countess being a whore! Not that there’s anything wrong with that… Continue reading
There really wasn’t much to discuss about last night’s episode of RHONY. To me it seemed like one long hour of Ramona and Sonja screeching about it being “a girls trip” and the others, most vocally Aviva countering with, “No it isn’t! We came to see Russ and go to his concert!” This continued ad nauseum with very few interesting moments interspersed. So it’s no surprise that the blogs from the housewives are pretty short. Luann and Ramona in particular don’t have anything to say they didn’t say last week.
Heather’s blog does explain why she got so upset about the “couples dinner.” It seems like if you read between the lines a bit, it was a combination of two things, first she came on the trip to hang out with Carole and Aviva as her inner circle in the three ring circus the trip became. Those two going to dinner without her left her with Ramona and Sonja with only Luann as a buffer. Also, when Carole and Aviva were getting fish pedicures during lunch they had already abandoned her once, despite the good reason for the separation. I could see being a bit pissed if I was left with Ramonja and the countess for lunch when the two people I liked the best were off giggling about fish nibbling their toes. The whole paragraph about how difficult it is for her to get away was ridiculous. Once you get to the island, you enjoy the island and it’s not necessary to be attached at the hip with your travel companions the entire time. I think she figured that out when she got away to the beach. Once again this week, Heather seems to be leaving the door open a crack to get along with Ramona. Sometimes I think placating Ramona must be in the RHONY contract. Someone should ask Jill Zarin about that.
Here’s Sonja on her girls’ trip to St. Barts
I’m flipping back and forth between RHONY and the finale of Bachelor Pad and I think Bachelor Pad is the saner option. Really two grown women can’t handle two other women going to dinner with their spouses? Is this really all that happened on this trip?
Wow, even Heather is pissed about the “couples dinner.” I just don’t get it! It’s not like the other FOUR women are going to have to…god forbid… go to dinner alone. There are four of them! I don’t get why this is an issue at all!
Um, Aviva…have you ever been on a girls’ trip? Bringing home random guys happens quite frequently on such trips. So I’ve heard. I love how Sonja with a j is making plans to hook up with the help one minute and then insisting to Aviva that her husband is ruining the girl vibe. The hot chef guy seems to take the huge catfight all in stride and doesn’t let it interfere with his screen time.
Aviva says Sonja is like Anna Nicole Smith! That’s pretty classic. How old was her husband exactly? Really? Are we going back to the Luann wants a baby storyline next week? /sigh
Luann kept her distance from this Pirate in late July not wanting to cause another scandal…
Let’s start with Luann. Luann keeps it short and sweet. Well, perhaps not so sweet. She seems to go in on Ramona a bit saying, “Ramona was angry with me for speaking the truth and she was taking the focus off of herself and putting the blame on me. I wasn’t surprised that she did this and I took it in stride.” Is it opposite day? I’m no Ramona fan and would love to see her off the show entirely, but this one was all the Countess. Her little interjection made here tryst with the pirate a distant memory.Heather’s blog on the other hand she takes Ramona’s side and though she understands that Aviva was under a lot of stress doesn’t condone her behavior. So she seems to be more positive toward Ramona. Which makes sense in this case, but she does go on about it suspiciously long.
