I haven’t been feeling well lately and today managed to take a day off by unexpectedly sleeping through the entire day until just a few minutes ago. My days and nights are backwards so I am just waking up the news that Carole “I was not fired and I am not bitter about it” Radziwill has signed on with some channel no one has ever heard about to do “unscripted TV” about how a dead husband is sadder than an ex husband. That sounds fascinating. Apologies if I missed your emails, I will get to them.
But first I am behind by half an hour on this freakshow so I will make it as quick as possible. What I must have missed because I am almost never on Instagram unless someone directs me there is that Carole did an Instastory with some woman bashing Skinnygirl! How fired is Carole? Let us count the ways…
Bethenny and Carole fight about the Red Scarf Guy. Carole attempts to provide evidence that RSG only had eyes for her and it falls flat. Everyone gets their phones out to show texts. Bethenny’s texted him that she can easily set him up with Carole. RSG was trying to get some Internet traction with his emails after the show aired and was shopping partial emails around to support Carole’s false narrative but Bethenny has the actual texts where she offered to set him up with Carole. Booyah, bitch indeed. This relationship is over. Carole continues to trash Bethenny on social media to this day despite the sudden death of her boyfriend. That tells us all we need to know about Carole.
The scenes with Dorinda screaming at Sonja all season are particularly horrible viewed in light of Dennis’s death. Then we see unseen footage of Sonja moving out of the townhouse. She’s living in an apartment on Columbus Circle while she rents the townhouse. She got full ask at $32K. Bethenny advised Sonja to see a psychiatrist and get on anti-depressants and lay off the booze. She gained a lot of weight on the medication. It was hard to get off the medication. Tell me about it. Sonja says that during the period she was weaning off her meds she lashed out and sad things she should not have said. Andy thinks she is making excuses but if you’ve ever come off of meds you would be more likely to believe her. Oh wow, Sonja went off her meds cold turkey. Even worse. Ramona even supports this.
Dorinda wants to argue about divorce and death. Because, cunt. Ramona and Sonja claim they are in a good place. Dorinda makes fun of Sonja’s use of the deer on her shoe line. Sonja is still in touch with he ex husband. Sonja says that she loves everyone.
Did you guys know Carole ran a marathon? We got an entire package on it. Also, she was dumped by her boytoy. I will miss this fascinating storyline.
Tinsley talks about her friendship with Carole and then Carole immediately starts downplaying her relationship with Tinsley and outright say that she is not close with Tinsley and Bethenny just made it appear that way. Tinsley was clearly hurt but this characterization of their friendship.
Carole admits she hasn’t worked in journalism in 17 years. Carole thinks she still has a career. Bethenny and Carole resumés. Bethenny wins.
They finally talk about Cartagena. Bethenny doesn’t like to see her meltdown montage. Carole looks like a bitch with her lack of compassion. A lot of shit happens.
Carole wants us to know that she is a very sane and stable person and she just discovered that the reason she is so sane is because she has a giant hippocampus. Actually, the hippocampus has nothing to do with emotions and is the part of the brain that processes memories. Her hippocampus is in the 99th percentile. She does not realize how crazy this makes her seem. She sees it as proof of her sanity. That’s scary.
When they talk about the boat ride we get a closeup of Ramona’s eyes. They are terrifying. It looks like she might be having a petit mal seizure or something. I think they should have immediately called in a doctor for her. But then she just starts talking normally. Or sort of normally. Ramona doesn’t know how to swim.
The reunion ends with their biggest regrets. Bethenny says hers is calling Dorinda a drunk. Dorinda was touched and cries and Dorinda and Bethenny hug it out. Tinsley regrets losing her temper with Sonja. Ramona’s regret was that she put the photo of Luann and the girls on Instagram and texting Tom. Carole’s regret was her inability to make up with Bethenny. Bethenny cries and says she didn’t hear a regret. Dorinda says her two biggest regrets were the argument with Luann and getting drunk at Bethenny’s dinner in Miami.
