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.

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.
Kinichewa and Shalom.
Tomorrow, Mother Teresa is being canonized as a saint. I think this KCSCougar personal deserves some sort of equally high honor. Seriously. Where can we find this person and give them their own network, and free wine for life?
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.
If it feels like we have been talking about this hideous storyline all day, it’s because we have. Here and also Here. I’m overly saturated with the topic and moreso but the morons that say things like, “this isn’t Bethenny’s fault it’s Tom’s.” Which is horseshit. Bethenny has been stabbing at Luann the entire season and has literally hired a fucking P.I. to follow Tom while she and Luann were in Florida. She is a despicable person. That is what we are here to discuss. Luann’s method of dealing with Tom’s ass has not been the focus of the show we are discussing.
Okay so it is one picture. And Bethenny seems to know that he left without paying his tab. She sure does know every little detail doesn’t she. It was super important for her to tell Luann that he left the girl with the check. She sure got her moneys worth.
Dorinda and Jules point out that the photo is not time stamped and could be from any time. As they console Luann, Bethenny’s minions come in to comfort her. Because really, this is all about Bethenny and her feelings. Ramona and Bethenny try to out fake cry each other. Ramona of course had it worse because she found out on Page Six, which she keeps repeating hoping someone will agree with her. Seriously, we are supposed to believe that Bethenny just ended Luann’s engagement and Bethenny is being the most dramatic person of them all. Ordering her minions to get her a drink and then leave the room because Lu is back and “she doesn’t want to do this as a group thing.” She had no problem telling the whole group before she dumped on Luann but now, she doesn’t want a group thing.
It’s time for Andy’s favorite moment of the season, when Bethenny rips Lu’s heart out of her chest and eats it. It has come down to this because Luann has remained unbothered by each and every escalating attack all season even when the entire pack has attacked at once. Luann must pay, so Bethenny has put out feelers or perhaps hired a P.I. to tail Tom and get her some dirt. If you don’t believe that, then you must believe Bethenny has lots of friends who happen to be strategically located wherever Tom is who feel comfortable calling a woman with a small child sleeping in the house at 2 a.m. If you believe that you must also believe that Bethenny has tons of friends who are mutual acquaintances of every who just so happen to tell her about things like Jules marriage.
Speaking of Bethenny, I have been asleep for almost 18 hours, I woke up to several emails saying that Bethenny is thinking of leaving the show because she is butthurt over the reunion and some legal issues with Bravo. While I could see her quitting over the first one, if you go to the ET story that is the source, she is referring to the fact that some of the other housewives refuse to show all of their personal lives on the show and keep some things “behind a do not cross police line.” That’s an odd comment from someone whose ex husband wisely will not let her pimp her daughter on the show. Bethenny wants to control her edit and she clearly can’t do that on RHONY. If she leaves, it will be because she has a radio show now, where she has total control of the content. That said, Bethenny’s dramatic comments always seem to come on a show day. Take that as you will.
And now, I am going to try to do a decent job on this recap as I get it is a very important episode. But, I’m working at half speed so apologies in advance.
