The Real Housewives of New York premiers April 5th. This is my favorite of all the cities! These ladies always bring it. Last season took a real dark turn, so I can’t wait to see how this season shakes out. Sonja’s drinking again, & that alone is bound to stir shit up.
Bethenny: I have a love-hate relationship with Bethenny, but last season was almost unbearable. She’s always been snarky, which is why I love her. From one snarkologist to another… Here’s the thing, there’s a reason why there is a saying “Pick on someone your own size.” Last season Bethenny really seemed to get a hard-on for skewering “weaker” housewives…she kind of lived below the belt. Cc: Jules, Sonja, Luann. She did it with Kristen too. It’s just a really ugly color on her. At the end of last season, I wrote an open letter to Bethenny which you can read here.
Carole: I really like Carole. A lot. The beginning of last season was a little rough for me because of her tiff with Luann…I was clearly way over before they were. I think she’s cool, smart, & has great style. I miss seeing her friendship with Heather, as I don’t love the Mean Girls thing she has going on with B, but I digress. However, I do love following her on Twitter. I found it a bit strange that she kind of has a relationship with Meghan King Edmonds, through their dogs no less.
Dorinda: I love Dorinda Meddler! I love that she meddles & turns shit up! We need her kind of drama. She has kind of a Rinna vibe, but I love Rinna too! I think that neither HW is malicious with their intent to stir the pot, but they both know they have a job to do. It’s called job security y’all. This season I’d like to hear less about the other women’s disdain for John, as it is none of their business.
Luann: Over the years, I’ve really come to enjoy Luann. We’ve really seen her evolve from being “all uncool” to cool…as cool as she can be anyways. This season hasn’t even started yet & I’m already sick of it being about Tom. If they’re are happy then the other women need to let it be. I’m talking to you Ramona.
Ramona: I absolutely cannot stand Ramona. I think the way she treats people is downright ugly. Ugh, she is the worst! Ramona rivals Vicki as my least favorite housewife of all time. Everything she does is self-serving in some way, she’s never genuinely happy for anyone, she’s super competitive with her friends, & she’s just too high maintenance for me. Ugh – I can’t with her.
Sonja: On the flip side – I love Sonja with the sexy j. How she can be friends with Ramona, I do not understand? Sonja is her own special brand of high maintenance, but in the best way. She’s hilarious & somewhat delusional, which makes her so endearing. I can’t figure out if she’s ditsy or somehow playing us all for fools. LOVE her!
Tinsley: She is the newest housewife, & from what I can tell she is a
poor little rich girl tragic NY socialite fallen from grace. Of course she is friends with Sonja…you know one party girl to another. Dior has named a lipstick after her, which is cool. She’s been seen & heard in the fashion industry. Tinsley is an author, a troubled love life, & a home collection line.
I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I may actually miss Jules. I hope she shows up every once in a while as friend for Dorinda or something. Although, I won’t miss hearing about her Asian Jewish heritage. It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if Heather or Kristen showed up a for a party or two either.
Will y’all be watching? Don’t forget to look for my Southern Charm recap late tonight or in the morning!
