Who is ready for another RHONY Recap? I’m not sure I am. We have way too many franchises of the housewives. I think that is the problem. The formulaic, misogynistic storylines are just way to apparent to everyone. And yet it’s women that are watching this garbage. This has been my issue for a long time. But I do understand getting addicted to them and needed to know what happens. So just like you, I’m tuned in and locked and loaded for another RHONY Recap.
I’m tired of going to court with Bethenny Frankel over custody battles and other cases with Jason Hoppy. And I am not even really going. And I love court cases. I just need some variance. I wrote three legal type posts today. Though I just now realize I left the legal stuff out of the dog killing story. Oops. And now we are going to court on RHONY tonight. Le sigh. By the way, they are still in court about this now.
This court hearing was when the judge decided that Jason Hoppy didn’t have the evidence to support drug testing Bethenny. This was right after Dennis died. So, Bethenny has a breakdown in the car and calls one of her executive about selling off some of her businesses to give her time to catch her breath.
Later, I love to see Bethenny Frankel doing her thing in the boardroom. I love that she does it in a ball cap with no makeup. She’s a real BOSS.
I’m a bit confused about where Jill Zarin lives. I was pretty sure she lives in Boca Raton. But, she sure manages to be in NYC to film a lot. In this scene, Luann and Jill both play tennis badly. Jill says she plays every day. Apparently, that isn’t helping. Didn’t these two both claim they tried out for the US Open in 2014? Then, they have a conversation where Jill tries to tell Luann she isn’t really an alcoholic. Luann thinks she is a special kind of alcoholic. It is abundantly clear she is not following a program.
I am not interested in Tinsley’s mom having talking heads to further disparage Tinsley. Also, I am not interested in Tinsley’s daddy issues. Or production’s insistence on focusing on Tinsley’s daddy issues as why her relationship didn’t work out. Because, this is not what I watch this show for. RHONY should be called The Really Miserable Women of New York. I can be miserable by myself. I don’t need any lessons. What I need is distractions. What we all need is women out having fun! We do not need Tinsley’s overbearing mother. And neither does she.
I AM BEYOND IRRITATED THAT PROMOTIONAL PLACEMENT HAS TURNED INTO FULL ON ADS IN THE SHOW
The RHONY Got To The Big Apple Circus
Before Tinsley Mortimer big debut as ringmaster of the Big Apple Circus. the ladies all assess each other outfits. And breasts. Their looks and breasts have never been more appropriate. Tinsley is a hot mess. I would have thought she would be a natural at this. She clearly has anxiety issues. I am guessing they happened after her divorce. That seems like the likely trigger. She needs to be on some meds. Or different ones.
Her headset is not staying on her head for some reason. How is that even possible? I feel like what we are about to see is a set up. I was also unhappy with the name of this episode. It’s the same as this RHONY Recap for the sake of continuity. I feel like this show mocks Tinsley a bit much.
Tinsley came down into the big top in and aerial spinning hoop and said,” Ladies and Gentlemen! I’m Tinsley Mortimer your guest ringmaster for this evening! Welcome to The Big Apple Circus! Now on with the show!” That was the extent of her duties. She did her best.
Sonja Morgan Steals The Spotlight!
Then Sonja Morgan morphed into Lindsay Lohan and stole a baby. I’m not kidding. Since she was front row she took a baby from the guy behind her to hold. He’s probably a makeup artist or something. But that Lindsay Lohan story never gets old. Click on it here.
Ramona Singer left right after Tinsley’s big entrance. She has a date. ALLEGEDLY. I actually don’t blame her. Other than the whole filming for RHONY is her job. In real life, I’d probably leave too. I mean I didn’t even see any peanuts. And Bethenny and Luann didn’t come at all. I think that is why Ramona leaves so much to be honest. They don’t make Bethenny and Luann earn their money in the same way.
Then, Sonja Morgan got pulled down into the show. She had no idea that would happen! I mean of all the people? Please. She was funny though. At least her Target overstock dress stayed on. The best part of all of this is how incredibly jealous Dorinda Medley was about not getting to perform.
Tinsley’s Mom Is Plum Awful
The worst part was Tinsley’s mom. She’s plum awful. She mocked her own kid during all of her talking head. And she has had three or four. Why so many? Who hates her in production? Meanwhile, they are all drinking a shit ton of wine and are drunk as skunks.
Everyone bails after the show leaving Tinsley with her mother. This seems so overly produced. Tinsley has a meltdown. Her mother makes it worse. Tinsley starts ripping off her costume and says she is miserable. She just want to be happy again. This is so sad. Tinsley’s mom telling her to look at the positives in her life is SOFA KING hypocritical. All she does is pick at Tinsley’s weakest points. Oh look another talking head of her trashing her daughter. She basically tells her she wasted too much time and is old now. This is said to watch. Why do we watch this show?
Next week on RHONY: Luann has a Halloween cabaret show. How long does Halloween last in NYC? Bethenny doesn’t show up for that either. Dorinda’s daughter hates her new apartment. See you next week for another RHONY Recap!
