For the next two episodes of RHONY, we are going to argue about who has to sleep in the “fish room” at Blue Stone Manor. They can’t be serious. I really feel like production is making this into the RHONY version of The RHOBH Great Champagne Coupe Disaster of 2017. We don’t need this ridiculousness.
Tinsley Mortimer got Botox for TMJ. Mommy was of course on hand for the cameras. But Tinsley’s big story this week is that she is having a charity doggy fashion show for a rescue shelter. I remember posting about this when it happened. Dorinda’s dog had just died. I feel like someone else’s dog died around this time as well. I can’t find the post about it.
For some reason, they don’t have a dog to walk with The Countess. Well, why the heck did she bother to show up for this then? Were they short on dogs at a rescue event? This makes no sense. Tinsley said there is only one dog up for adoption. This is the stupidest event so far. At least it gives Ramona a chance to redeem herself on the runway.
Sonja Morgan’s new apartment is right on Columbus Circle. That is dangerously close to the NBCu offices and Andy Cohen. It’s also very busy and loud. So while out for a walk with Ramona Singer, she shows off her new sound cancelling head phones.But the real topic is the feud between Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps.
Bethenny Frankel is packing to go see her latest boyfriend. But first we are subjected to an on camera grief session. I don’t believe in these. I don’t believe anyone is truly authentic when they are receiving therapy on TV. Bethenny says she was finding it very difficult to extricated herself from the relationship. She feels guilty that tried to end the relationship before he died. She felt trapped. Bethenny doesn’t know what to do now. She feels guilty about going on with her life. This therapist is very “woo hoo.” I don’t know how else to describe him. I am not a fan. I am not a fan of this entire scene.
We Got The Yacht!
Apparently, we are going to have brunch on a yacht with the RHONY. Ramona had some oddball story about how she got the yacht for a friend. I have no idea who in production had to sleep with whom, but here we are.
The topic is Tinsley and Scott. Spoiler alert, they break up right after this scene. There were rumors online about Scott cheating and perhaps even knocking someone up but non of that was verified by anyone. So we shall see. I think her dog dies around the same time. Anyway, back to the episode.
When asked about Scott, Tinsley said he was supposed to come this week but she told him not to. Her mother is there and Dale always tries to sabotage the relationship when she is around. Tinsley is 43 and she has been with Scott for two years. She wants kids and time is running out. It may have run out already.
Are You Getting Married, Or Not, Tinsley?
Tinsley is trying to convince everyone the relationship is great. She didn’t like questions like are they in love? Are they going to get married? She says she wants to be. They have talked about rings. Bethenny wants to know if Scott would bail if she gave him an ultimatum to get married by 2019 or she needs to move on and find a sperm donor. Tinsley doesn’t know. She’s defensive. She claims she has a timeline. At her age two years is too long not to know where she stands. Tinsley feel ganged up on and interrogated. It was the script, Tinsley. Nothing personal.
Blue Stone Manor
Dorinda had to skip brunch on the yacht to decorate the for Halloween. Sonja, Ramona and Tinsley are arriving early. Have we met Dorinda’s sister before? I love Melinda. She comes bearing garden fresh veggies and a willingness to help decorate. That’s a good sister.
I think Ramona is a total bitch for saying that one of the scary dudes looks like Bethenny crying. Then shady production cuts to Bethenny crying in the same pose. Okay, sometimes Ramona is right.
Right away the bedroom drama starts. Ramona tries to call Hannah’s room, the best room in the house. Dorinda says that room is for Bethenny. She asked for it and she did just lose a very close friend. So fine with me. But not with Ramona who thinks it should be first come, first served. She is going to put Lu in the Moroccan room. It’s beautiful too. Tinsley has been assigned the back guest room. Also lovely, and private. But it is upstairs and Tinsley is afraid to sleep up there alone. So she says Tinsley can have the Moroccan room. Ut. Oh. Ramona and Sonja have to double up. So I guess they took the upstairs. That leaves Luann in the fish room. Everyone hates the fish room. There are tons of fish mounted on the wall. Who really cares? These fools get so blind drunk they will have no idea what room they are in.
Dinner at The Wheatleigh Hotel
Okay, all of this nonsense makes sense now. They are going to dinner at a five start hotel. This is one of those hotels you see in Condé Nast Traveler. Someone will be staying there, and I bet it will be Luann de Lesseps.
Dorinda gives a rundown of the schedule for tomorrow. Luann wants a massage. As Dorinda says, it seems Dorinda has mistaken her home for an Inn. One of the things I like about these girls is that they eat food. I am shocked by the sight of The Countess putting food into her mouth tines down in a five-star establishment. Utterly shocked and dismayed.
The Old Luann Returns
Then she finds out she is in the fish room. Sonja and Ramona laugh like hyenas. It’s so bad I have to fast forward. After some back and forth, Tinsley volunteers to sleep there and let her have the Moroccan room (she was supposed to have in the first place). Luann thinks she should have Bethenny’s room. Luann, her sometimes boyfriend just died! But, Luann feels disrespected and storms off. Remember condescending and arrogant Luann from her first season? She’s back. And checking in to the Wheatleigh. I get the feeling she already had a room reserved. But why would she not want to be with the other women at night? I fear I don’t want to know the answer to my question.
Next week on RHONY: Next week, everyone goes buck wild in the Berkshires. Chef Art Smith, one of the best chefs in the country is there. They have no idea. And by the time Art and the Naked Chef serve dinner, they are naked wasted and making out with each other like Ariana Madix and whoever’s lips she can find. They tour an old Morgan property and Sonja Morgan loses her mind.
