I’ve been reading some interesting tidbits about the upcoming season. I’m just going to dump them all out her for us to sift through.
Carole says that everyone except Bethenny and Tinsley returned from Columbia with parasites they got from eating bad fish. Bethenny and Tinsley do not eat fish or are allergic to fish and they were fine. This explains why Ramona was in a wheelchair at the airport. Not a single housewife that I know of has confirmed the Page Six story about the sinking boat. They also claimed that Carole and Tinsley were sea sick but as it turns out Tinsley was fine and they weren’t seasick from the rough seas in the bay as much as they were sick in the first place.
Luann told People in an exclusive today that she was drinking seven or more drinks a day at the end of last year. She’d have a martini or two around happy hour, a few glasses of wine with dinner, and sometimes a vodka soda for a nightcap. She is due back in court on Friday the 13th! of this month.
Sonja told E! that we will see what caused the relationship between Bethenny and Carole in the Berkshires! So that will happen very early on. Carole told Page Six that their relationship is not over she just sees Bethenny in a more realistic light now. Carol said, “Our friendship isn’t over, it’s just not what it was. I’m sort of an idealistic person and I sometimes view people idealistically, when I meet them, and now I just see her a little bit more realistically. I think there were some things that were said that I heard that she had said, that I didn’t think were consistent with someone who was a good friend, and the person I knew her to be. I talked to her about it, and she doesn’t like to be confronted so I don’t know how well it went.”
Sonja says that there is one relationship this season that probably is not repairable. I think she is talking about her relationship with Dorinda. Sonja says that her relationship with Dorinda is not good this season. She says Dorinda came out hot right out of the gate and she just kept coming for her. I think Sonja confronts Dorinda about her drinking. I’ve said it before, Sonja is not the best messenger when it comes to drinking. All of the girls on this show drink like fish. Carole seems to drink a bit less than the rest of them. Sonja kind of hints that Dorinda has a lot on her plate this season.
Sonja says she spent the summer on herself. She went to Paris with her daughter and sat in her hotel room stuffing her face. Then she went to Costa Rica for ten days to a “detox.” I believe she was really at a medical retweet for some plastic surgery. She says that she and Ramona are not super close this season. They are still speaking but Ramona has pulled away. She says this season we will see her and Tinsley working through things that were a bit unresolved last season.
Sonja seems to be sucking up to Bethenny and it sounds like she sticks close to her this season.
Ramona says she is closest with Carole and Dorinda at this point because they don’t take themselves too seriously. She says that they are just easy and forgiving friends. Ramona says she is not as close with Sonja anymore. Sonja sent her a text that was truly horrific. She says that they were all there to support Luann and she is doing well. She does say that she is not that close with her because Luann only wants friends when she needs something. Ramona says she saw Tom in Palm Beach in January. I believe this is what caused the rift between them. Ramona has started a skin care line. She says she is not dating anyone on this season she is focused on her business and redoing her house in the Hamptons.
Bethenny, Ramona and Luann were on Megan Kelly this morning. They all look a bit “refreshed.” Ramona seems to have gained some weight and cut her hair off. Bethenny says Andy Cohen didn’t want her on the show because she had been on The Apprentice. They showed a sneak peek at tonight’s episode with everyone in crazy costumes and Bethenny going in on Ramona. Ramona just keeps saying the most outrageous things. She is not lacking for confidence. She says she is a lot calmer this season. Luann keeps looking toward Bethenny like “Can you believe this?”
Luann says about her arrest that she hit the wall running a hundred miles and hour and she fell and got back up and is in such a better place now. Her cabaret show is selling like hotcakes and she is going on a tour soon. Meghan tells Bethenny she heard this was her last season. She seems confused by the rumor, as am I. Bethenny says she will probably come back.
