Real Housewives of New York Recap: London Calling

RHONY Carole

We begin tonight’s episode with Dorinda and Heather checking in to some sort of ginormous penthouse. Wait, that room was just for Carole? It’s like a whole apartment. Where is Dorinda staying? Carole goes by herself to pick up the ashes from the church. Carole is ridiculously nervous and saying silly things to the priest. As she is nervously chattering they show photos from her wedding day.  Her husband had cancer when they married, but they both expected him to beat it. He finally gives her the urn, which is larger than expected. Carole takes it back to the hotel room and lays on her bed and cries.

Later, Dorinda and Carole meet up in Carole’s room. Where is Dorinda staying? In the maid’s quarters?  They have the hotel send up tea and sandwiches and have a chat about their husbands.

The next day the ladies do a bit of shopping and the chat about Luann. Apparently the Countess has reappeared and no one is happy about it. After shopping, Dorinda is having a private cocktail party at an upscale bar. Carole invited some of her old friends from London as well. Dorinda’s friends are all very dignified. Carole’s guy friends were all in black leather. Dorinda’s friends brought up memories of her late husband. The cocktail party was more of a wake.  I’m going to need someone to explain Carole’s ensemble to me.

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Awfully Charitable

 

Are you sure you are not biased?

Are you sure you are not biased?

For some reason I thought it was Wednesday and I was busy running errands and going to the grocery store and basically wearing myself out. After some chicken wings and blue cheese dressing and a few glasses of sweet tea, I feel revitalized! Just in time to recap tonight’s Real Housewives of New York. The good news is, we’re going to London! The bad news is, it’s another death story. Speaking of death storylines, I TRIED to watch #RHOOC today, after zipping through all the Meghan scenes, the psychic scenes, the cancer arguments, and such I was left with Shannon working out and a bowling alley scene which managed to include a dead mama scene and a cancer treatment argument. No Bueno. Hopefully this will be better.

We start out at Bethenny’s new apartment that is still under construction. It looks fabulous and it isn’t even finished yet. Carole stops by for a scene to rehash the last episode. The fixtures are beautiful, especially the crystal chandelier in Brynn’s room.  I did notice a shortage of windows.  Carole tells Bethenny that Luann made a fool of herself at the bedazzling party after Bethenny left. Bethenny sticks up for Luann and suggests that Carole’s recount may be a bit biased. Bethenny thinks that the naked man was a bit much but that Carole and Heather over reacted. Carole has invited Dorinda to London with her, but is a bit concerned now do to Dorinda’s crazy erupting lately. Continue reading

Check Out The RHONY Bedazzled Jeans Auction!

RHONY Kristen Yummi auction

The jeans the housewives bedazzled on the last episode are up for auction here!  So many interesting things to see. For example, ” Denim + Diamonds was a benefit for the international children’s charity Smile Train, hosted by model and cast member of The Real Housewives of New York City, Kristen Taekman.  As seen on TV, prior to the event each of The Real Housewives of New York City cast members decorated a pair of jeans which were on display that evening. 100% of proceeds from this auction support Smile Train. ”  Am I the only one that got the impression that it was HEATHER that was sponsoring the charity event?  I may have just assumed it was Heather since the jeans are all Yummie Tummie but apparently that was just Heather getting her infomercial in.

Real Housewives of New York Recap

RHONY Luann Uncool

This recap may be a bit slow in getting done. If you haven’t noticed, I’ve kinda jumped on jumped on the crazy train again. But hey, I had a good bout of sanity there for awhile, and I have no doubt it will return in due time. Nobody panic it will all work itself out, it always does. But if this recap is weirder that usual, that is why.

Enough about my crazy, let’s watch these crazy New York bitches. I’m already a little more sympathetic toward Dorinda who seems to be on her own crazy train.  I, of all people should be a little less judgey when it comes to the crazy ones. Heather continues throwing shade with hashtags. Do people really do that in real life? I mean people older than 13?

Ramona and Heather get into a fight over who gets to “comfort” Dorinda.  Heather literally backs drunk Dorinda into the corner of the bathroom while screaming at Ramona to get the fuck out of the bathroom. Eventually, Heather and Dorinda hug it out. These New York bitches are to be commended on how quickly they make up with each other. It never sticks, but at least they try. Heather and Ramona continue to bicker. Heather and Carole decide to call it a night.  The other ladies stay out.

The next morning, Heather, who sleeps naked, which she is fine with, but she is not as fine with some random dude sleeping naked in Bethenny’s bed. I mean really, who doesn’t like to see a naked man in the morning? Lighten up Heather. Heather and Carole interrogate Dorinda about a the mystery man. They get nowhere with that, so the go to wake up Sonja and Ramona, the two likely suspects who blame the man on Luann. Ramona is dead to the world, so Heather starts scream and opening the curtains yell at Ramona to get up. In her talking head, the apologizer apologizes for “punting it to Luann.”

Next the bitches go to wake up Luann. I swear if I was woken up after a long night of partying by these two banshees, someone would get hurt.  Luann finally gets up and confronts Heather, “What’s the big deal. We brought some guys back here, we had a good time, what’s the big deal?”  Heather was afraid of the naked man. Seriously? She must have been so much fun on spring break. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Conch Blocked

RHONY Bethany

YAY! We are back in the Turks and Caicos. Let’s hope this episode is as good as the last one! We are back where we left off with Ramona being a cunt satchel and deciding she wants everyone to go out for lunch after Bethenny has made lunch at the house for them. So very tacky. Bethenny is rightly pissed. Bethenny’s salad looks amazing. I wish I had someone to make me amazing salads every day.  Ramona somehow has decided that Bethenny is pissed because Ramona stole a dress. Ramona does her apologizer thing and everyone enjoys a lovely lunch.

Ramona is writing a book about how she got to where she is. Um, divorced and unstable? I’d go with that.  Bethenny suggests “Work in Progress.”  Heather says there are probably tons of books with that name. This pisses off Heather and says that Bethenny is a “know-it-all.”  But in this case, Bethenny is correct. Bethenny and Heather argue. Carole says that if you are 58 and your life is still a work in progress, that’s a problem. I disagree. I think we are all works in progress.  This know it all fight is going to go on forever.

Or not. Heather and Bethenny seem to make up by pulling the back of each others bikini bottoms down to bare their asses. Whatever works, girls. BTW, great asses on both of them. This ends in both of them mooning the other girls. Everybody is happy. Time to paddle board.

Heather apologizes to Sonja for participating in the alcoholic storyline. She loves Sonja and she is sorry. Heather promises never to bring it up again. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Sonja Island

RHONY Bethany

Heather’s flat belly is awesome.

Ramona and Bethenny sit down to talk about Sonja’s drinking. Things devolve into a conversation about how lonely they all are and how scary the unknown is. Ramona breaks down over Mario. Bethenny who is not a hugger, is already hugging and crying.  Ramona goes on and on about how Mario is a part of her and she wants to fix him so bad. The both cry and hug some more.  I thought it odd that Bethenny said she related to the feeling of loss Ramona was having. She never seemed to attach to Jason.

Sonja and Dorinda have a loud discussion inside while the other girls are doing yoga. Sonja is reenacting Bethenny screaming at her. Sonja is totally disrupting yoga and the girls all get up from yoga to go hear what Sonja is screaming about.  So much for yoga.

Ramona tells Sonja that Bethenny called her an alcoholic. Ramona just AGREED with Bethenny five minutes ago.  Bethenny walks up the conversation escalates. Bethenny tells Sonja that she gets drunk and tries to screw everybody else’s man. Ramona defends Sonja to Bethenny and backpedals like crazy to avoid any involvement in the Sonja intervention. Luann shows up with breakfast for everyone to eat on the beach.  Ramona takes hers into the house. Leaving Bethenny and Luann getting screamed at by Sonja. Luann takes Bethenny side and says that Sonja tends to “fall asleep” at the end of the night and need to be put to bed. Sonja doesn’t deny this, in fact she says, “so what” and continues screaming at everyone as Heather approaches. Oh Heather, this is an OG problem you need to stay on the porch and sip mimosas, I’m sure you can hear them from there. Continue reading

Here is the Tea on How Sonja Morgan Lost $7 Million

RHONY Sonja

Recently, I was sent this really interesting interview by The Business of Film (TBOF) with Richard Rionda Del Castro (RRDC), Chairman of LA based Hannibal Pictures and his wife  Patricia Rionda Del Castro (PRDC). This is the production company that Sonja Morgan frauded who won their suit against her with a judgment of over $7 million.

You will want to read the whole article if you have the time but these are the most interesting excerpts.

RRDC: In 2005 Hannibal controlled a project in which a very big name actor had a strong interest in the leading role. While we were finalizing the acting contract, the actor gave us a short window to go into production because of other film commitments. We began presales and had procured a commitment letter from our regular production lender. During the same period, our lawyer at the time introduced us to his new client who was now in the business and representing to have $250million in cash to invest into film production. They were starting with a slate of 5 pictures and were looking for high profile pictures to finance and co- produce. They took an ad in Variety at AFM in 2005 announcing their intentions, and in January 2006 they signed an agreement with my company, in which they agreed and committed to finance 100% of the film. At that time, they were fully aware that if we agreed to their financing terms, we would be solely relying on them to completely finance the film, and they repeatedly assured us that would not be an issue. This person was Sonja Tremont Morgan, a New York socialite. The production company was Sonja Productions. Her company took an advertisement in the trades, and she used her husband’s name John Adams Morgan, the great-great grandson of J.P. Morgan, and a direct descendant of U.S. President John Adams, who was the Vice President in charge of Financing for the company. Sonja Morgan and her director were representing to everyone they had the cash sitting at a bank in Beverly Hills ready to fund as soon as they had chosen their projects. Continue reading

WWHL With Sonja Morgan & Luann de Lesseps Singing Live!

WWHL with Luann and Sonja

 

I can’t possibly skip recapping this trainwreck. I have to stay plugged in for another 30 minutes. They had Luann stand up for this photo and I thought for sure it was to so the absurdity of Luann’s skirt length, but I have a feeling it was because they are trying not to show Luann’s twat. Tonight it is Sonja’s turn to be Luann’s “snatch guard.” Who knew that would happen.

Andy brings up Ramona’s rudeness to the help and the yellow bikini. Andy plays a montage of Ramona apologizing. She really does do it a lot. Andy asks the ladies if Ramona got a boob job. The girls won’t answer so that means yes. I rarely even notice women’s boobs unless they are hanging out.

They play a clip of Bethenny’s intervening with Sonja. Andy asked her why she wasn’t listening to Bethenny. Sonja says last year they said she was all over the place with her business and going to lose her house.  Now she has a huge line of luxury blah, blah, blah and she is still in her house. Both of those statements are debatable. Check here for the latest on her house.  She puts just as much weight in their opinions this year.  Sonja denied several times that she has issues with alcohol.

Amy Phillips does a great imitation of Sonja. Luann says she are Carole are “cordial” when they run into each other. Which means they are not speaking. Luann will be singing the song on a float in the NYC gay pride parade on Sunday!  So regal. So classy. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York: Room Motherfuckers

RHONY  Everybody

It’s time to begin the main trip of the season for Real Housewives of New York as they all head off to Turks and Caicos ! Seven women, one house, one scary island.

But first we have to get through Luann’s fashion launch. I am not a fan of the line. What is it with housewives and uncovered shoulders?  Bethenny and Kristen resume their argument and seem to put it behind them. For now. Sonja seems to be coming for Kristen too. Mostly because the cameras were on Kristen and Bethenny.

WOW! Andy Cohen has a Snapple commercial. That was random. The commercial is cute though. Get those dollars, Andrew.

Carole is filming everything. That would be annoying. Aren’t there enough camera’s anyway?

The fight for rooms begins. It’s not like there is a bad room in the house.  Ramona and Sonja agree to share a room but they disagree on which one. Both are keeping the other ladies out of the room they are in. Of course Ramona wins. She always manages to get the best room. Bethenny goes in on Ramona for being a bitch about the room. Everyone is pissed at Ramona already. Even Sonja because the room Ramona forced on her doesn’t have a bathtub and Sonja can’t do showers. Seriously? I’d just want my own room and I could care less which one it is. Ramona has someone, perhaps he is a butler?,unpack for her. I can’t even imagine treating people the way Ramona does. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Episode Discussion Forum

RHONY Ramona face

EDITED TO ADD: OOPS I AM SO UNPLUGGED I’VE FORGOTTEN MY SCHEDULE. IT’S RHOOC I won’t be recapping tonight. Hang on and I’ll put up a post for that show. THEN back to unplugged.

Hey guys, I am going to remain mostly unplugged again tonight and will not be recapping the RHONY  RHOOC live at 9. I may or may not feel like doing it at 11:30 in time for the morning crew tomorrow. Until then… you guys have a place to comment here. Meanwhile, let’s look back at last week’s episode through the bleary eyes of Ramona. Bethenny is a very strong woman. The things she has been going through have been very hard on her emotionally. At times Bethenny cries at a drop of the hat due to all the stress she’s under. I know the feeling as finalizing my divorce has been taking a toll on me emotionally. This is the reason I haven’t written a blog in a while. I appreciate everyone’s continued support and understanding. It means so much to me. I actually hadn’t noticed your absence. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: An Hour of Infomercials

RHONY cast

Bethenny

The ladies are going to a cupcake party decorating party at a cupcake store. This is Bethenny’s idea. the Skinnygirl  versus Ramona’s Pinot starts right away. This is apparently a promotion for the cupcake store, and the women’s booze and yet another opportunity to discuss their vaginas and what they do with them publicly on national television.  Then Sonja says she is about to pay off her $7 million dollar judgment and another couple million in attorneys fees. Um, didn’t she just declare bankruptcy over the judgements? That is not really “paying them off.” So she invites everyone to Turks and Caicos.

Sidenote: Every woman who lives in NYC and is on TV has been pushing the HELL out of Turks and Caicos lately. Kelly Ripa can’t mention it enough on her show, this show, it seems like it is the new Phillipines of travel destination promotion desperation.  WTF is going on there for this major push to be necessary? Red Tide? Oil Spill? High murder rate? It’s all a bit much.

Kristen

Luann meets up with Kristen for a shoe store promotion. Since they are already on a reality show during this commercial, Kristen tells Luann about#PopOfColorGate.  Luann sticks up for Bethenny. Kristen’s storyline is “why doesn’t Bethenny love me?”

Carole

The next commercial is for Balzeen. A restaurant/bar. During this promotional activity Carole tells Bethenny she had as sex dream about her. Carole says she had the dream about Bethenny because she needs to loosen up.  Carole tells Bethenny she did rat her out to Kristen. In her talking head, Bethenny tries to backpedal about what she said about Kristen.  Bethenny is fine with Carole blabbing to Kristen about what she said. I see a sixty-nine session in the future for these two. I wish I didn’t, because MY EYES. Two anorexic New York bitches just don’t do it for me. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New York Recap: Pop of Color

RHONY cast

We are back at the birthday party for Dorinda where Heather and Bethenny have both burst into tears after an argument. And just as suddenly as the tears came Bethenny has suddenly decided she wants to give Heather a hug. So they hug it out. Do you think Bethenny realized she was looking like a bitch? Are is she hormonal like some of us?  What the hell are those weird green statues on the shelf in the dining room? They are creepy and wonderful all at once! Bethenny tells us in her talking head how much pressure she is under.

I forgot how drunk everyone was. Sake was not a good idea for this crowd. Luann stands up and walks over to John and gives him some sort of condescending speech about how she likes him, sort of.  Apparently, that was supposed to be a toast. Not to be outdone, Ramona gives a toast. Then Bethenny gives a toast to the party saying when Sonja is the sanest person in the room, we’ve had a good party. Bethenny is still doing sake shoots. She says to Sonja, she doesn’t think she is a good dinner party guest.

They separate into two camps one for Heather and one for Bethenny. Clearly, the hug didn’t last long. They are all drunk. I doubt Bethenny will remember this in the morning.

Ramona

Back in NYC, Ramona goes to pick up Avery for winter break. They literally ran toward each other and hugged. It was so sweet. Avery has a paper to turn in by tonight. They start semi arguing in the car. That hug didn’t last long either. I love seeing New York decorated for Christmas. I’m glad they are back to cold weather filming in NYC.

Ramona tries to talk to Avery about Mario “trying to reconcile with her.” Avery wants no part of the conversation. Avery says she should do whatever makes her happy. She is a grown up, she can handle kit. Avery seems a bit teary in the conversation. Avery has grown into a wise and lovely young lady. Continue reading
