I’m not sure I can take another half hour of this woman. What is wrong with Bethenny’s face in this picture?
Ramona is the drinking word. Andy and Isaac Mizrahi could not possibly be further up Bethenny’s asshole. How can they both breath up in there?
Andy asks her opinion on Kim and Kyle since she has known them both for years. Bethenny says that she has known them for 25 years. Bethenny says she can’t imagine having a sibling on the show. Andy asks if it has always been like this between them. Bethenny doesn’t say anything that makes sense. She says she loves Kyle and Kim can be a bit dramatic.
This show is ridiculous. Continue reading
There is so much to recap tonight so I am not going to go into excruciating detail because I am already behind and I know y’all like these recaps up as soon as possible. I think we should drink every time Bethenny whines about her life or cries. Cheers!
It’s raining and NYC and Bethenny is whining about it. DRINK! Bethenny is whining about her living situation. DRINK! Bethenny is whining about being tired. DRINK!
Carole and Heather
Carole and Heather ride together to the Hamptons. Carole says she has become good friends with Luann. The girls talk about Ramona’s divorce and how well she is doing. Heather is still not thrilled with Sonja. Continue reading
I think I’m going to like Dorinda. That was my first thought as I began reading this blog. And then, more I read on, I began to wonder, are people really this open to everyone? Does she really think that all of these women are super lovely? Did filming RHONY really make her remember how much she likes to socialize? Is this a real blot or just a really polite one.
Hi, everybody! I’m Dorinda, the new girl! Really excited to be here and watch what happens along with you. I’ve always been a fan of the franchise, all my New York City girls, and now I’m one of them. Loving it!
OK, first things first: When I saw the first episode, I was like, “Oh My God! Is that me?!” It is quite jarring to see yourself on TV for the first time and to actually hear your voice. So weird! I can tell you one thing: I am making hundreds of appointments up and down Park Avenue for facials, trainers, hair stylists, plastic surgeons…just kidding…maybe.
I love this. This seems so genuine. I mean wouldn’t we all feel the same way? A bit self-critical. A bit insecure? I don’t think any housewife has ever been this transparent before. It’s an awfully good sign.
I thought the premiere was great and less scary than I expected. It’s OK—it’s all good. My life has not drastically changed, and the locust have not landed at my door for the grand gloom and doom. (Quirky little reference, isn’t it? Thanks.) I think it shows me as I am, and I pray that’s what continues, but I am sure the road is going to get a bit more rocky in the coming weeks.
Again, being nervous about the premiere really humanizes her. It seems she is also bracing for episodes to come. Continue reading
It’s time to start using my purple pen on the RHONY. I thought I would start with Bethenny but hers was just her telling us that she is ready to share with us again and repeating why she left before and what happened in the interim. Carole on the other hand has some interesting things to say.
I’m going to say it right now: This is the best season this show has ever had. It was for me. I laughed, I cried. I met a handsome man.
I think her new boyfriend is probably the main reason she is so excited about the season. I spared you the first part of her blog where she used a bunch of Shakespeare titles to describe the episode because, trying to hard. I think that is my primary issue with Carole in fact. It’s not that I don’t like her, it’s just that she seems to be trying too hard. Continue reading
Lots of discussion about Bethenny being “homeless.” Ramona looks good.
They showed a clip of Kim reading a text from Lisa Rinna that really didn’t say anything worse than she has already said. There is an ominious “You better be careful or I will fuck you up! Stop telling lies.”
There is a crazy clip from next week when Bethenny and Ramona are talking outside with a white picket fence between them. Ramona is clearly off her meds and treating Bethenny like she is the crazy one. It looks fantastic!
Andy talks to Ramona about her behavior on the reunion. Ramona says she was very offensive. Andy accurately corrects her saying she was defensive. Ramona wrongly corrects Andy and incorrectly defines both defensive and offensive. Andy just smiles and nods and says “Oh sweetie” quietly inside his head. A couple of people in the clubhouse are laughing loud. Andy forges ahead saying she would not answer any of his questions about Mario and as stonewalling him. Continue reading
We begin with Bethenny arriving at The Essex House for a free room in exchange for promotion. She has her dog Cookie, and her new assistant Leslie in tow. She will be staying in the Presidential Suite, because she is worth hundreds of millions of dollars, allegedly. Bethenny explains that Jason is still living in her old apartment. That does seem kind of shitty for Jason to do as Bethenny designed every inch of the apartment. But it is what it is. So Bethenny is staying in hotels. I thought she was renting another apartment. Why isn’t she there? Oh she is renovating the other apartment.
Bethenny talks about her failed talk show and how unhappy she was as a talk show host. Essentially, she expected to be in control of the show, and she was not the ultimate decision maker and she couldn’t take that. I hope in her therapy they are discussing the commonalities between this experience and her marriage.
We check in with Kristen and her family which she says is getting better. From where I am sitting. It still looks pretty hectic.
Kristen, Luann, Heather and Carole get together for drinks. Heather awkwardly kisses Luann on the lips when she greets her. Awkward. Carole openly admits she is on a diet that involves nothing but vodka, cucumbers and butter. Good for her. Luann is having all the girls to her new house in the Hamptons. She is apparently downsizing. Luann and Sonja are still not on good terms, but she invited her anyway. Sonja as apparently been drinking too much and making a spectacle of herself in public. Which is way worse than drinking too much and making a spectacle of yourself on the Internet. Am I right? Continue reading
This morning on the Kathy Lee and Hoda part of Today, Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Ramona Singer and Luann De Lesseps did some press for the Real Housewives of New York season premiere.
First let’s talk about their choices in outfits. Bethenny and Ramona both went with a little black dress. I think they both looked appropriate for the situation. Carole looks like a college sophomore doing the walk of shame in the leather pants and t-shirt she wore out to the bar the night before. Luann? Well she does seem “Eastery” to say the least. I’m not fond of women of a certain age in shirts that tie at the waist no matter how in shape they are. I am not saying they all need to call each other and try to coordinate like a girl band. I’m just saying that there should be some standard of dress for a television appearance where it seems they are all dressing for the same event. Continue reading
Isn’t filming over? Explanation anyone? Ramona and Bethenny are BFFs now?
So um this came out like the day after my big spiel about how we are too smart to keep watching this shit. And it looked pretty good. But it is a lot of crying over men and bitch fights. And sleeping with strange men on a trip to Turks and Cacaos (that part looks fun). So um, we have to watch because Bethenny is back. Right? Strictly for research purposes. Not because we are addicted to this shit. 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.
I gave up on RHONY for a multitude of reasons. Mostly because there is only so much hate I can take. Once I no longer found anything redeeming about any of the women, on RHONY I reached my limit. I was done. But also because there was a person on the show with some mental health issues I could empathize with and most of y’all could not. But now with the return of Bethenny, and the removal of that person, I will mostly likely be tuning back in.
It looks like RHONY is getting a much needed overhaul. Which means I should be getting back to caring about who stays and who goes. Which has been the dead last thing on my mind.
But click through to find out who is currently being test filmed… Continue reading
It was just last July when Bethenny Frankel was admonished by the judge in her custody case with Jason Hoppy for posting a picture of herself wearing her four-year-old daughter, Brynn’s Hello Kitty pajamas on twitter. The judge called the decision ridiculous. When her lawyer said that it was just a joke, the judge replied by saying, “It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke.”
Yesterday, Bethenny’s fans were appalled after she posted the above picture on Twitter pimping her new book of cocktail recipes. Several comments were left on Twitter and Instagram by fans who were deeply concerned about her health. Continue reading
