I really miss the olden days when I could believe everything I read on Page Six. Sadly those days are long gone. Tonight they decided to publish some sort of Terror On The High Seas story about the RHONY’s Harbor Cruise in Cartagena. Here is their version of events. The quotes are from a some source to Page Six.
“Once they were ushered on board, the boat couldn’t even move. The anchor got stuck, so the crew had to saw the anchor off before they could sail anywhere. When they got out to sea, the engine caught fire. It was a huge blaze and the crew was fighting to put it out. They didn’t have a fire extinguisher nor did they speak English.”
So if they Colombian crew spoke English, this would have somehow helped with the fire?
Adding to their watery woes, we’re told the sea was so rough that “the seats and other things on board that weren’t nailed down started flying about.” The boat was taking on water, “and there were only two or three life jackets for everyone on board,” including the film crew.
The seas were so rough that things on the boat were flying around like projectiles, they had to literally cut their anchor before departing and yet we have a photo of Ramona having the time of her life on the yacht? I don’t think they even drop anchor at the pick up spots on the docks. They just tie off. Maybe I’m wrong, but really, that like never happens. 🙂
The cast, we’re told, mustered a characteristic “Real Housewife” response. “They all thought they were going to die and they were hysterical,” we’re told. “Bethenny [Frankel], Ramona [Singer] and Dorinda [Medley] were soaked and screaming hysterically, Carole [Radziwill] and Tinsley [Mortimer] were literally throwing up from seasickness. They were far out to sea and they thought they were going down like the Titanic.”
They were on a harbour cruise, for fucksake. There were a lot of other boats in the bay. They were not out in the Atlantic Ocean waiting for a cargo ship to rescue them. Why no mention of Luann? Was she just there being cool while everyone else was being all uncool?
The Bravo Rep supposedly said, “ The Real Housewives of New York City cast was recently on a boat in South America and encountered turbulent water. Thankfully, everyone is fine and was able to continue their vacation as planned. The safety of our cast and crew is paramount and, to that end, we are doing a full investigation.”
So they went on a harbour cruise, drank too much and got seasick when the water got chopped. The water is always choppy in the bay, it is full of fucking boats!
They are trying to turn this into that cruise on one of Bethenny’s spinoffs with Jason. The entire ordeal was staged. I’ve reached out to my RHONY sources to find out the real story. Story developing…
