This is the worst season ever of RHONY. However, you guys comment on the RHONY recap the most because of terrible behavior. This season started with Eboni coming in all wrong for her first season. Ramona apparently decided she had to up her bad behavior to compete. Luann and Ramona both had a dust up with Eboni in the early episodes. Yet, the Internet rumors about a much needed cast shakeup are saying Eboni, Ramona and Luann are the only three coming back, with Luann (the least offensive of the three) in a friend role. This seems like a ridiculously stupid idea that Bravo suits would think was just hunky-dory. But, it’s way too soon for any decisions to have been made… way too soon. I’ve been taking lots of much needed downtime, so I haven’t been pestering my source… MORE TO COME.
Something’s Not Kosher With Sonja
If you missed last week’s episode, count your Shabbat affirmations. It was some of the worst housewives behavior I have ever seen. Maybe that means there is no place to go but up? Or not. We start with Leah having a family dinner. Of course Leah has ordered in Kosher food. Leah seems to think she is Jewish already. What is the book industry coming to when Harper Collins offers Leah a book contract. IT’S A SELF HELP BOOK! There are few people in the world less capable of giving others advice than Leah. Even her family seems to know this. Why does production think we need to see Leah’s whole family? We don’t even want to see Leah!
Sonja calls Ramona and tells her that she and her “intern”, Emma both tested positive for Covid. So, of course Ramona wants to make it all about her and her fake Covid stories. Sonja seems to have had a pretty bad case of Covid. All the girls really supported Sonja. Filming was halted for four weeks. I believe some RHONY production people also got Covid during that time. Also during the unscheduled hiatus, Eboni found her father. She tries to call him on the phone; but he doesn’t pickup. Ramona invites everyone to the Hamptons for a Galentine’s weekend. I just let Banjo back in the house and he practically sprinted by in the house! Prednisone is a miracle drug. #allergies
Let The Backstabbing Begin!
Everyone except Luann heads to The Hamptons together. Luann had something she had to do. Before they are even off of Sonja’s street, Leah plays the dead grandmother card to get out of sleeping “in the basement.” I’m guessing Luann will sleep down there again. Eboni kindly volunteers to sleep downstairs. Eboni gets a bit more likeable in every episode. Oh YAY! Bershan has been invited! I really want to see her. They assume that Bershan will be sleeping downstairs as well. I will never get over how these women on every franchise fight over the best rooms on every trip. They will be sleeping not quarantined in the room. Oh! Leah wants Luann’s room instead of taking the room that Eboni was assigned. I can’t stand Leah.
Ramona has had someone decorate the house and set the table and they did a terrific job. It’s all very nice. Luann is somehow the first to arrive. She immediately start ragging on Sonja to Ramona. Sonja didn’t hang up her phone properly after chatting with Luann and Lu could hear everything she was saying. All Sonja said was “I love Luann so much, why do I talk so much shit about her?” Well Luann is going to make a big deal out of it. Lu tells Ramona that she found a renter, one of her “friends from Abu Dhabi” To rent the townhouse for four months. All these two do is talk shit about Sonja. Leave Sonja ALONE! Of course, Ramona says, “Think what she did to me!” Ramona is always the victim in her own mind.
Pin The Tail On The Jackass
Sonja arrives and is emotional. I don’t think she is completely recovered from Covid. She apologizes privately to Ramona for being so combative with her previously. Um, that is what they do. Sonja had a lot of time to think in quarantine and she was really touched that Ramona sent flowers and offered to send an ambulance. She also plans to apologize to Luann. I don’t think Luann deserves an apology. Ramona bought everyone loungewear. The ladies don’t like them. What’s not to like about clean jammies during Covid? Eventually, they all put on their jammies on and accessorize them.
At dinner, Eboni announces to those who didn’t already know that she found her father. She has now spoken to him on the phone. She also has two sisters that are welcoming her into the family. They are both married with kids. Eboni is really happy. Leah says her goal for 2021 is to find a sugar daddy. I do not see that happening. Luann’s has brought a Pin The Tail on Harry Dubin game. That guys name comes up every season. Maybe he can be Leah’s sugar daddy. Ramona and Sonja immediately start arguing about Harry. Things were going so well! Eboni lost the game and had to kiss the Harry poster. Harry happens to call just at the right time.
YAY! Next week is the season finale! Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition! What did you think? Leah is on Bravo Chat. I’ll let you know if we need to know anything from this shit show.
