I was not excited to see Bethenny return. Her first few episodes didn’t impress me. It was clear she had something in her contract about leaving events whenever she felt like it and passing on the out of town trips she was not down for. Which is odd, because she spends an hell of a lot of time in Miami these days.
That said, she had a nice finish at the end and once she stopped sobbing, she was the voice of reason that was sorely needed around Sonja and Ramona. I’m not even mad at her treatment of Kristen anymore after the last episode of the reunion. Here is what she had to say in her Bravo Blog after the reunion shows aired….
The last of this thriller ride is over.
Ramona took a pretty good beating last time, so it was understandable that she passed out. NOT. You cannot write this sh–. They threw the mold away with Singer, and I love it. To give you an idea of what the reunion environment is like, it would be like sitting in the middle of Grand Central Station on a weekday. To say the least, there is a lot going on. LOL. My goal in life is to sleep on command, so obviously I’m jealous.
Luann took a pretty good beating, too, and I have to say I was really happy to facilitate she and Heather making up. Not sure who drugged me, but I really do ultimately want everyone to get along.
Am I the only one who thinks that Luann and Heather didn’t make up at all? The Countess will win in the long haul as Heather goes back to her businesses and occasional appearances on MSNBC.
I think it surprised everyone that I brought that back with the B.
I have no idea what this means.
We did all go to dinner afterwards FYI, which was really fun.
Now that is what we want to see filmed. Secretly.
Thanks for welcoming me back. What an amazing season it was. Should I come back again, I look forward to laughing with you even more. I had a lot going on last year, but had fun nonetheless. I am as happy as I have ever been right now, despite the clutter and mess that still exists.
I wasn’t enthusiastic about Bethenny coming back. But once she did, I definitely want her back next season. If there is a next season.
We all have our issues, and I think that is what made me feel more compassion and connectivity with this group. Thanks for watching, and for the record, Madonna was rehearsing for the British Music Awards the night of Sonja’s fashion show. And I banged Ryan Gosling in addition to George Clooney and Tom Cruise. It is the Housewives after all. Why let the truth get in the way of a good story? Believe me when I say that truth is stranger, and crazier, than fiction.
Now, now, perhaps Sonja meant she saw a vision of Madonna and baby Jesus in her toast that morning.
So now that the season is over, do you want Bethenny back next season? I think she is kind of necessary to keep the collective IQ above 70. Plus, she give great (talking) head.
