Julianne Wainstein has been spotted filming with her friend Dorinda Medley and new cast mate Bethenny Frankel for Real Housewives of New York this week in NYC. That’s new RHONY Julianne with her back turned to us to face Bethenny Frankel while they are all pretending to have a bite to eat at Catch NYC.  Mostly what is important for us to know about Julianne is that her husband is rich, she close with Dorinda, Bethenny will probably love her, she is half-Japanese, sophisticated, and last I knew she was an event planner.

Julianne will be replacing Heather Thomson who has taken her ball and gone home after one of her major investors with a managerial role in Yummie has refused to allow the RHONY camera inside the business. Since that was Heather’s whole point in being on, she has left the show and is trying to oust the investor from the company. The guy was actually the one to give her the very first million dollar loan to start the company and has had a major hand it the success of the company. Heather is going to court to try to remove him from his managerial duties. I guess she doesn’t need him anymore. Continue reading

Will LuAnn de Lesseps Girl Code Video Ever Be Released?

I thought Luann's #TBT with her dad was appropriated for this dated post.

    I thought Luann’s #TBT with her dad was appropriate for this dated post.

 

This is one of those storied that keeps getting pushed to the back burner an forgotten, but since I am doing some old post housecleaning, I thought I would throw this one up for you guys just for fun.

I really didn’t think the drama between Carole and Heather and Luann was really something any of them had time to think about in their real and presumably busy lives. I guess I was wrong. I checked their Twitter today and all their bitching and moaning with each other has been deleted. Carole’s  boytoy fell of his skateboard. Seriously, I am not making that up. These are the problems with dating boys with skateboards.

Anyway, my point, which sort of got lost as I fished around for new information is that it seems that after the reunion, Luann decided to scrap her newly completed Girl Code video  full of writhing young men in speedos. Could it be something Carole and Heather said?

Real Housewives of New York 100th Episode Recap: Pigs Get Fat, Hogs Get Slaughtered

RHONY Kristen Drinking

 

I’m trying to take the day off today. I’m just a bit overwhelmed by everything and just want a day of hiding under the covers and having a pity party.  But I am going to make a few brief comments on this show and I promise to be back to my old self soon.

The casting tapes from 2007 are amazing to watch. Jill and Luann basically looks the same but everyone else looks different.

Jill refused to be interviewed for the show.

Lots of Alex and Simon bashing.

Bethenny looks gorgeous in her interviews.

Luann regales us with Countess stories. The others prefer regular Luann.

I sort of miss Kelly Bensimon. I love the I’m up here, you’re down there crap. This playback of Kelly putting down Bethenny is almost identical to the things Bethenny said to Ramona at the beginning of this season.

I’m not sure why I am even watching this.

Andy met Carole at a dinner part at Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelous’ house.

Bethenny got Aviva on the show.

Much discussion about the breakup of Jill and Bethenny.  Bethenny says she was really excited to host the Today show one time and when she arrived producers told her that Jill had called demanding to know why Bethenny was chosen over her. Jill would go out of her way to sabotage Bethenny’s  appearance. I imagine Jill is probably going nuts on Twitter but I think I have her blocked.

Bethenny talks about how Jill waited until they were on camera to really come for her and try to get the fans to hate her. Jill tried to take her down and it backfired.  Bethenny says of Jill, “Pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered.”

Next Avivia’s leg toss. Carole is such a cunt satchel. Aviva admits the preplanned throwing the leg. Luann says that was her swan song. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 3 Recap: Happy Ending?

rhony-reunion-7-left-couch

It’s time for the final reunion episode of 2015. Once again, I find myself wondering if there is anything left to discuss. Based on the preview it looks like a lot more rehashing of the same old stuff they have run into the  ground all season.

Sonja is Delusional

Andy wants to talk more about Sonja’s “brand” is in fact not “very real.”  I just realized Sonja is wearing the same dress she did some of her talking heads in this season.  I am not a believer in once you wear something once to a big event you can’t wear it again.  BUT, if you have an international lifestyle brand (whatever that is) I would think you could find something to wear to the reunion from your vast collection if for no other reason than to see the merchandise. Oh wait, it is from her collection. Andy points out that she has a large collection on her website. Apparently, not large enough to wear something we have not already seen this season.

Somehow, Heather is being attacked by Sonja (and Bethenny who jumps into every single conversation) about not supporting her brand. Yet we saw Bethenny and Heather trying to ground Sonja in reality and give her direction all season. Now somehow that was wrong of Heather while right for Bethenny to do? Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 2 Recap: Ramona Tells All

The sparkly couch.

                                                             The sparkly couch.

I had no idea this was coming on at 8 pm tonight. In fact I just saw it recording and stopped it because I thought it was a social edition of last week. I was busy watching  The Donald Trump Show which is currently airing on every news channel on cable.  It’s mesmerizing.  The news channels are handing Trump this election.  Anyway, on to the show.

I am over the Carole and Adam argument. Carole says this was never a problem with Luann. Luann admits she didn’t mention it. Let it go people!

Finally, on to Dorinda. Andy LOVES Dorinda. Dorinda doesn’t work she inherited her husband’s business which she sold when he died. Hannah doesn’t watch the show and isn’t thrilled that social media talks about her.  Dorinda says Hannah is more reserved like her father and not really into the how show thing. Bethenny keeps jumping in to answer for Dorinda.  THAT’S interesting.  People bring up John’s less attractive points, he wants his business on the show (Bethenny of all people brought that up), he is a bit “handsy”, and the bottom line is Dorinda is happy with him and everyone needs to shut the fuck up.  Kristen’s big moment on the reunion thus far as that a drunk date of one of the housewives got a bit handsy with her. Is she twelve?  Every woman on earth know how to deal with these situations. Dorinda is like, so did you call 911? Continue reading

Carole Says Talking To Luann Is Like Trying To Reason With a Toddler

RHONY Carole

Frankly, this Adam kid was pretty much Carole and Luann’s entire storyline this season. Sure Carole picked up some ashes and Luann made some scrambled eggs, but these two butting into each others’ sex lives was pretty much their entire story arc.  Carole is dating the help!  Luann is screwing married dudes from the bar! I truly believe that Carole and Heather of all people did not give a crap about the naked guy in the next room. It was all just a reason to try and catch Luann in the bed with someone.  When that didn’t work, suddenly the house manager was telling on Luann to Kristen, as good house managers do.  There seemed to be a big retaliatory plot against Luann for constantly pointing out he vast age difference between Carole and Luann.

Despite my “WHO CARES?” attitude about who consenting adults choose to sleep with, I thought I would purple pen Carole this week. Heather’s entire blog was about what she wore, and Luann’s was about her fugly dress and scrambled eggs and other things I can’t even remember. Oh and there was some sucking up to Bethenny involved. Anyway, on to Carole.

Bravotv.com: What upset you most about the confrontation with Luann at the reunion?

CR: Nothing really upset me, because Luann threw away any chance at a real friendship long ago. That said…it is difficult to have an intelligent conversation with her, because she has no ability to self-reflect, and much of what I said seemed to go over her head. Although, yikes! I did not mince my words!

I kind of have to giggle at the way Carole throws shade. While I would just go the easy route and say Luann is a moron, she just points out the difficulty of having an intelligent conversation with her. I really should take a page from Carole’s book and be less direct, I generally don’t have the patience and just scream, “Get away from me you stupid cow! I hate you!” It’s much easier than expecting self-reflection from the other party. That said, Carole could have asked herself why this issue that she finds trivial seems to have upset Luann so much. So, pot, kettle. Continue reading
