Argh I was busy chatting in email with a couple of people. And did not have time to set up this post so I will be a little late in posting, probably. Apparently, it is still Ramona’s birthday. Still. I guess she wanted presents from people who were not in Atlantic City. She has a Turtle Time cake. And THANK GOD FOR BETHENNY for squashing the stupid trend of call women MAMA. I HATE THAT. I am no anybody’s Mama. It’s ridiculous and must be stopped. Bethenny hates the upper east side luncheon birthday party. I can totally appreciate that. Carole and Bethenny discuss Sonja’s psychopharmacologist. Which is a head shrinker that writes scripts. Much like most psychiatrists. The are actual doctors who treat mental disorders with medications. Not vitamins. Meanwhile, Sonja is talking about meditation and abundance candles with some whackadoo.
I do not want to think about Dorinda swinging.
Bethenny is hysterical tonight. Sonja is talking about her swami priestess whackadoo. It’s hysterical. Bethenny moves on to play therapist with Ramona. Then in the next scene Bethenny goes to therapy with her TV doctor. I really wish Bethenny could reconcile with Jason. But that is never going to happen and Bethenny feels betrayed Side note: I saw a video recently of Bethenny and Jason trying to co-parent on Bryn’s fourth birthday. I could not find it on Youtube. But Bryn was having a major meltdown when Jason had to pass her off to Bethenny and was screaming I want to stay with Daddy! Over and over as paparazzi filmed. It must be heartbreaking. There were dozens of paps there. Bethenny is concerned about trusting her judgment. She has recently broken up with (in real time) with her rebound relationship and is already seeing someone else. Bethenny is wanting to meet up with her stepfather John, because she wants Bryn to have some family on here side. Also, I have to break up with my therapist this week. I really can’t afford her anymore with my unaffordable Obama care. Plus, I think I’ve heard all of her things multiple times, it’s getting repetitive at this point. Clearly, I don’t listen. And I have you guys to tell my troubles too. I’m pretty much an open book. More advice is not going to help. I have to do some work on myself. Plus, I will see here again here and there. I’m too poor to be crazy. Continue reading
I think that Sonja has surpassed Jacqueline what’s her face in the longest blog ever contest. There is more delusion, incoherence, and contradiction in the post than I have seen. And I tried to snip out as much as possible. Sonja’s words are in black, and I’m using the purple pen.
First and foremost, I need to address the situation that occurred at my home at the beginning of the episode. What really happened was that I was taking a call from my sister from Nashville who was just telling me she was not be able to come to watch my daughter, because her best friend had just passed away.
So your teenaged daughter who last I heard was in boarding school was going to be babysat by your sister who was in Nashville talking on the phone to you rather than at least on a plane to NYC if not already there? None of your 47 interns can be trusted to look after Quincy? Her alleged $300,000 a year in child support won’t cover a lady sitter? She has no school friends she could spent the night with? Seriously? Continue reading
This has been a long damn day despite getting up shortly after noon. Before I was even awake the whole Kenya drama started which filled the moderated comments with Nenetards and a mob of morons that like Porsha. I threw up a quick post and went to seating people in the window licking section. At the same time, Nancy starts spouting off about how gay couples should not be allowed to marry because Reza Farahan is a cuntbag. Not the best timing for a homophobic post. I haven’t eaten all day and I am irritable and exhausted. Then just before I was trying to set up for this, there is some story about Claudia getting escorted out of a mall in Auburn Alabama. So I am telling you now, not to expect much from this blog. Also apologies for unreturned emails, thanks for all the links, and apologies for not getting the Ru Paul Drag Race post up today, that is a very tedious and time consuming task and it was just not possible today. I’ll do my best to do it tomorrow.
Tonight the ladies are going to take their drinking and bickering on the road to Atlantic City. Whoo Hoo! It’s time for the ladies to leave and Heather, Kristen and Dorinda go to pick up Sonja in the rain and one of her interns tells them they will have to wait outside because Sonja is packing does not wan to be disturbed. This is TOTALLY storyline because in any other situation they would leave and let Sonja get her own ride there. Somehow Luann and Carole managed to get excused from the trip. Sonja’s talking head says her excuse is that her sister was supposed to watch her kid but her best friend died so she can’t. Isn’t Sonja’s kid like 45? Continue reading
I have already lost interest in this season. Bethenny is such a shrew. Dorinda is vile. Carole is reliving her adolescence. I’m having a hard time finding someone to like this season. I will say I hated Ramona and Sonja together but can tolerate them much better separately. Maybe Sonja will be my girl this season. Basically, Bethenny sums it up above. None of this is interesting to me.
Bethenny and Sonja meet for lunch. I’m not sure why. Bethenny is apparently assessing Sonja’s mental health. Sonja is not passing. Sonja is giving her delusional spiel about her “businesses.” The two discuss being divorced and having the need to get pounded and shitfaced. Sonja says she doesn’t swallow unless they have a black card. My personal advice is don’t swallow once they are on medication. Because I read that somewhere in a book. Allegedly.
Luann and Dorinda go for a pedicure. Dorinda is so vile with her man I have no interest in her at all anymore. Luann told Dorinda about John being out in the clubs without her. Dorinda says that Bethenny is harsh. She should know. Dorinda is having a party and Bethenny is not coming because it’s not a Skinny Girl event. Hannah is annoying too. Continue reading
It’s time for the Real Housewives of New York again. I feel like the last episode was yesterday. Time flies. I’d suggest drinking every time Bethenny cries if you don’t have plans tomorrow but unfortunately for me I must venture into THE WORLD tomorrow for a bit and need to be clear headed.
We open with a scene with Carole and Heather on the highline. I had plans to go walk that highline last summer but they did not pan out due to a variety of things, aka a clusterfuck of issues. I am dying to see it as I don’t think it was there last time I was in NYC. My yankee NYC friends act like it is overrated but it looks amazing. Heather is having a dinner. Those always go so well. Carole is fucking the boy chef from Luann’s Hamptons house. Carole says that she went to a club with him and ate a random gummy bear, started tripping and they had to leave. Carole puked all over both of them on the pedicab home. Carole seems proud of this. The kid is 29. Carole says that she has not told Luann because he used to date Luann’s niece. #Cougar
Carole goes on a ping pong date with her boytoy. Carole is clearly trying to relive her high school years. Dude is not even that cute.
The ladies are all still in the Hamptons and have been invited to dueling brunches. Ramona is having one and so is Bethenny. It’s the battle of the OG housewives of New York. Ramona says she is holding a brunch in honor of her friend Dorinda. Everyone decides to try to do both. But Carole wants to skip them both and go for a boat ride with the hot young personal chef of Ramona’s.
Luann shares that Ramona borrowed an Herve Leger dress from Bethenny and never returned it. This is part of Bethenny’s problem with Ramona. This is apparently not the first time Ramona has absconded with a dress. Carole says, “That got she would never fit into one of mine!” That is both some cunty shade and ridiculous. If Ramona can fit in Bethenny’s dress she could surely fit into Carole’s dress. Are Carole and Bethenny both aboard the anorexia train? The ladies mock Carole’s toe hair.
The ladies begin at Bethenny’s house. Bethenny’s house is AMAZING! Especially for a homeless person. Carole points out she has been to Oscar gifting suites with less product than she saw in Bethenny’s house. It is Skinnygirl everything on display everywhere. One of the issues the girls had with Bethenny this season was being forced to go to a shit ton of promotional events for Bethenny and she was never there for their events. 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
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
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
We’ve been talking about Bethenny Frankel returning to RHONY, and we all have our opinions. Not nearly as many as we have about Jason Hoppy (y’all are a bunch of assholes, btw) which we argue about here. Today, Bethenny appeared on The View. Let that sit with you for a minute. You wanted your own talk show, you got one, and it didn’t work out. Now you find yourself going on a talk show with a track record of a million years to pimp your brand again. Bethenny has never seemed particularly happy except in the first few weeks of her talk show, and I imagine this is an emotional nadir for her.
While we wait for Bethenny, I’d like to point out a couple of things. I happened to watch The View yesterday. I’ve been trying to remember to watch to see what this new incarnation of the show is like and yesterday they had a Elizabeth Warren, a far left democrat who many in her party want to see fight Hillary Clinton for the democratic nomination in 2016 on. Warren is very outspoken and has a huge following and very pro-women’s rights and such. It’s great that The View had her on. However, she was there to campaign for three female democratic candidates, one in New Hampshire, one in Kentucky and one in Georgia. Here, in Georgia we have very tight races across the board coming up. I don’t affiliate with either party. Currently, I am leaning toward the democratic challenger for governor and the republican candidate for Senate, but I’m not completely sold on anyone. The candidate she advocated based on her ads that are all over my TV are all basically saying various versions of “Vote For Me I Have a Vagina! David Perdue Hates Vaginas!” So I was curious what this esteemed politician would say about her platform. So she talked about the woman from Kentucky. I believe her platform is minimum wage laws. And said something about the NH woman. And I waited patiently for a reason to vote for Michelle Nunn and the woman said David Perdue owned companies that outsourced labor to China. Um, okay. Most companies do that. I wish they didn’t. But what about Michelle Nunn can you tell me anything about her? Warren basically said she was a fine woman. So today the new version of Elisabeth Hasselbeck was allowed to mention the opposing candidates. Which I think you legally have to do. So that was good. Continue reading
Andy Cohen is busting his buttons over his kitchen table talk deal with Bethenney Frankel this past summer. Clearly, he made it worth her while to come back and try to save the half-dead RHONY. But RHONY has been filming for awhile and there have been no sightings of her filming.
What’s the problem?
Apparently, it’s Jason Hoppy. I’m hearing the real reason that Andy and Bethenny cooked up this little deal and kept it a secret was Bethenny’s divorce. It seems that 50/50 custody has finally been agreed to. we were in the homestretch and everyone was moving forward. Things are more amicable. Continue reading
Sonja Morgan’s E. 63rd St. is desperately in need of Fredrik Eklund. Here is a quick primer on Sonja pre-RHONY, Sonja was a little go getter with aspirations who put herself through college and did some modeling and ended up living in NYC working at an Italian restaurant where she met her future husband who is somehow related to JP Morgan the steel guy. I forget all the particulars but he was an older gent with serious old NYC money and Sonja married him. But despite anchoring the relationship with a kid, the marriage failed and they were separated in 2006 and divorced in 2008.
In the divorce, Sonja got the 4,500ish square feet place with 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms with plumbing issues that bought in the late 1990s for around $9million. Shortly after the divorce she began trying to sell. I think she started around $12million, then $9 million. Then she tried to declare bankruptcy because back toward the end of the marriage she formed a company and named it Sonja Entertainment (or something similar) and promised some Hollywood types that she would get financing for a John Travolta movie to the tune of $7million or so. But the courts refused to let her off the hook. Continue reading
