On tonight’s RHONY Recap, a familiar face returns to the show and receives an over the top welcome. And the story about Ramona Singer’s behavior at a charity ball where she ditched Dorinda Medley and lied to Page Six makes the show. Ramona invited Dorinda to the Angel Ball, another charity event that is a really big deal. She bought two tickets and gave one to Dorinda but then when Dorinda got there found out that Ramona asked to be seated at a table with more important people. Ramona is supposedly looking for investment money for some new caper in Miami and was hounding people for money the entire night.
Bunnies In Brooklyn
Oh no! Bethenny has a new driver/bodyguard, Albi. He is cute but what happened to the older man who knew all her secrets and was with her when Cookie died? Bethenny and Sonja are trashing Tinsley. Why is this necessary? These girls can just be flat-out bitches when it isn’t even close to necessary.
It’s hilarious how excited these girls are to see the outlet malls and Costco on their way out to Brooklyn. Sonja is taking Bethenny to meet some artist friend of hers. They finally arrive at Hunt Slolem’s studio. The guy makes very primitive paintings of bunnies and people buy then for $20,000. I need this gig. The birds freak me out.
Breakups On The Upper East Side
Luann go out for coffee after going to their first Al-Anon meeting. When pulling RHONY Recap photos for this scene I surprised by their high calorie coffee drinks and their little packages of cookies and snacks. Quickly, we move on to the Scott situation. Tinsley finally blurts out that they have officially broken up. Again. Tinsley says she called Scott after the drunken Truth or Dare game at Bethenny’s. She asked him to come to NYC and he said he could not. So that’s it. It’s over. I seriously doubt it is over.
Big Top In The Big Apple
Tinsley Mortimer has been selected to be the ringmaster (ringmistress?) at the Big Apple Circus. Dorinda goes with Tinsley for rehearsal. She is openly jealous of Tinsley’s gig. The flying trapeze team just so happens to be rehearsing for the cameras. Dorinda and Tinsley want to climb up to the platform for the trapeze. Dorinda goes first and gets a few good swings in. She’s ready to join the show. When Tinsley get up there she gets all emotional. Oh welcome to perimenopause,Tinsley. You will be crying for the next decade or so. Tinsley loved swinging from the trapeze. But when she was told she would be entering the circus on a ring, she started to freak out.
Exes At T-Bar
Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps walk into a bar. There is a joke or three in there somewhere. Why is Luann at a bar with two drunks? The run into a dashing older gentleman named Michael and of course all three of them have…um…knowledge of Michael. While they are arguing about who has and has not slept with Michael, Mario Singer walks into T Bar!
Sonja jumps all over him with even more gusto than Michael. How rude. He greets Luann with the double kiss and Ramona with a single and then Sonja goes right back to mauling him. Sonja and Ramona both seem to think that Mario went through a midlife crisis and should not be held accountable for his actions. He must have been expecting them because he brought turtle wine glass charms and True Faith jewelry t-shirts. Ramona is emotional to see Mario. You can tell she is still in love.
Spats At The Spa!
First we need to talk about Sonja’s bun. She had the same hair for the bar scene that she did for the spa but the spa scene was definitely filmed first because her bun came undone along with the rest of her at the bar. And Dorinda is moving and apparently going to live at this spa inside a deluxe apartment in the sky for a week. I want to live there for a week!
Tinsley and Barbara walk in right when Dorinda is telling Ramona that she lied to Page Six. Ramona took someone else’s seat trying to hobnob for investors. Ramona denies it. Here’s the thing. The event was filmed by Bravo and it very clearly shows Ramona skipping past Dorinda and the table where she was told to sit. Table 62 and going to sit with some woman she was fawning all over at table 61. Ramona seems drunk. In the day. At a spa. And she is very argumentative with Dorinda which is hysterical since production keeps showing us she is a lying liar who lies.
Then Ramona PUSHES Dorinda. I’m shocked Dorinda didn’t punch her lights out right there. Sonja and Barbara both have to leave early for different reasons. But Sonja feels the need to tell Barbara that it got back to Ramona that Barbara said she didn’t like here. I hate how these bitches speak to Barbara. She is a self-made woman who could buy and sell everyone on this show several times over except for Bethenny. And I don’t think Bethenny is that much above Barbara financially.
Barbara’s Apology Tour
Barbara tries to mend her relationship with Dorinda. They agree to reset. Dorinda cries. So many hormones with these women. Tinsley tells Sonja that she and Scott broke up. Bethenny magically appears out of nowhere. So she tells her too. Bethenny gives her a big hug.
Barbara tries to make amends with Ramona. Ramona is a bitch as usual. She starts mocking Barbara to her face about her affinity for wrap dresses. You know who else likes to wear wrap dresses, Ramona?Diane von Furstenberg. It’s an iconic look and new styles and fabrics come out with her name on them every year. She even has a similar one to the one she is currently wearing. So shut your piehole.
They played the midseason trailer and I can’t even begin to count the number of seriously major meltdowns. Bethenny’s in particular was upsetting. See you next week for another RHONY Recap! Be sure to tell me what you thought about this episode!
