RHONY Recap: Multiple Surprise Parties

This recap will be a Tweet Cap.  This episode was tough to watch & I’d Rather be watching Then & Now with Andy Cohen.  If you missed the episode, all you need to know:

  • Carole & her mom campaigned in PA.
    • Love her or hate her, Carole did her part to educate people on the importance of voting.
  • Ramona got a new face for her birthday gift to herself – looked painful.
  • Carole’s Election Party was more of a funeral.
    • Her toast was lovely.
  • Ramona almost ruined her own surprise party, & she’s still the worst.
    • She couldn’t wait for Dorinda to pick her up.
  • Ramona thinks Bethenny needs to move on from their fight.
    • Sonja was actually the voice of reason.yawn

What did y’all think of this episode?  Is Bethenny justified for being mad at Ramona still?

Until next week…

RHONY Recap: Hug It Out

All the episodes on Bravo this week seemed to cram so much into one episode…the hours just fly by!

We opened the episode at Ramona’s Hamptons home at her dinner party; Sonja & Tinsley were the last to arrive.  Tinsley & Dorinda got acquainted & hit if off fairly quickly.   Tinsley immediately shared her life story…as one does.  Dorinda was sweet about it, “We’ve all f*cked up.”  Carole filled Sonja in about the tiff between B & Ramona.  Sonja said that her daughter turned out fine.

I have to say, that pasta looked good at the dinner party, but Ramona definitely did not make it.  Sonja greeted Dorinda & Luann with such a fake, sugary sweet Helllloooo. Dorinda totally shaded Sonja when she announced that she was staying at both Ramona’s & Luann’s.  Then Dorinda went in for the kill.  Don’t mess with Gansta D.  Dorinda could not follow Michelle Obama’s advice.  I was horrified for the guests.Dinner party.gif

Things we learned from this dinner party:

  • Sonja worked for Trump?  Eww.
  • Candace Buschnell is friends with Ramona & Luann.  I wonder if Ramona has inspired any of her bitchy characters.
  • Sonja thinks Ramona should vote.
  • Carole is a champ at eating pasta.
  • Ramona LOVED the drama.
  • Bethenny is spot on with her Home Alone references.
  • Carole dis-invited Ramona to her Election Party; however, Ramona forgot that she dis-invited Sonja to stay with her in the Hamptons.

The next morning at Luann’s brunch, Dorinda & Sonja made up so fast!  Sonja & Luann made up as well, but Sonja proceeded to bend Ramona’s ear about Lu the rest of the time.  Why is she still hung up on Tom?  Does he have a magic penis?  I’m sure this truce is going to last until the end of time… Truce

Back in the city, Bethenny stops by Carole’s where she met the two cats also named Baby. Is Carole fostering cats, or is she keeping them?  I was hoppy happy to hear Bethenny say that she wanted get to a good place with Jason, it must be exhausting to be in constant battle with the father of your child.

Sonja is butt hurt that Tinsley is having lunch with the other girls without her.  Think of it this way – Tinsley is just getting to know her new coworkers.  On a side note, why is Tinsley staying in Sonja’s daughter’s room & can’t bring guys home, but Luann stayed in “the bridal suite” & could do whatever she wanted?

Can someone please get me a transcript of Dorinda & Sonja’s screaming match at dinner?

RHONY Recap: Soft-Core Politics

Y’all, I’m such a dingbat!  I wrote this post last week & forgot to hit “Publish.” DUH.  Blogging 101, right?!?  We’re all human, so sue me.

I love when these gals go to The Hamptons!  I wish I lived in their colonial, shingle style homes!  They’re my favorite!!!  This episode was good, but not that much actually happened.

After arriving in The Hamptons, Bethenny & Carole met Luann, Dorinda, & Ramona for dinner.  Ramona chaotically whirled into the restaurant, plopped down, & promptly went for Bethenny’s jugular.  Normally I do not defend B, she doesn’t need my help after all, but this seemed uncalled for, calculated, & vicious.  Ramona

So, apparently 20+ years ago Bethenny tried to be an actress, but never made it past the D List; she had to do a topless scene once in a movie.  I guess Ramona leaked this to the press found out about it & honed in on Bethenny, calling it her “porno past.”  She kept asking if Bryn had seen it in the tabloids & if B was addressing it with her 6yo daughter.  You read that right, six. years. old.

Y’all, is Ramona chemically imbalanced?  Her train of thought is so difficult to follow.  I really just don’t understand her logic; is she offended by Bethenny?  Is she trying to embarrass Bethenny?  Was there a legit reason for bringing up her nude scene in a D-rated movie, other than being catty & nosy?  I agree with the butler from last week.  I don’t care that Ramona had a horrible childhood, that does not excuse her current god awful behavior.  See a therapist if you can’t cope with your childhood.

Luann loved this ridiculous argument & added her two cents for whatever it’s worth…two cents?  She thought Bethenny desrved Ramona’s tirade because she’s selfish & only thinks about herself.  Bethenny is single, & when Bryn is at her Dad’s for the weekend (or whatever the arrangement is) then B can be as self-centered as she wants. B

The rest of the episode was basically the fall out from this disastrous dinner.  The only person that wants to talk politics with Carole is Carole…and sometimes Dorinda.  Sonja & Dorinda still hate each other.  Bethenny refused to go to Ramona’s dinner party.  The End.

I feel like the hour flew by, but not that much happened…weird.  Was this episode bizarre to anyone else?

RHONY Recap: Mona Lisas & Mad Hatters

As I write this recap, I am eating my weight in Girl Scout Shortbread cookies…perfect for a Mad Hatter Tea Party.  cookies

We open the episode with Sonja asking Connor for chocolate, so Beatrice must be visiting right?  Meanwhile, Tinsley is out in the street unloading her bedding from an Uber Black. Poor Tinsley has to sleep in Sonja’s daughter’s room?  She says it’s temporary until she decides to live uptown or downtown.  Such tough decisions.

Over at Bethenny’s, she is dressed as a cat to see if Carole will compliment her?  That wig tho…  Ramona stopped by to join the fray & refused to take her shoes off.  As B predicted, Ramona stepped on Biggie, or was it Smallz?  It was Ramona’s passive aggressive way of saying that she was upset about not knowing she got puppies.  Carole got two new kit-tens & Ramona didn’t care.  They move on to gossip about Luann & Tom…again.  rolling eyes

In another part of town, Luann & Victoria shop for hats for their giant heads.  This is prep for Sonja’s Mad Hatter party.  Does anyone else think that Victoria is looking more & more like Luann?  They of course rehash the Sonja/Tom “jealousy.”  Look, we all know that Tom & Sonja were not in love, but can we drop the Tom subject already?

Back at B’s, the gals are still shit-talking.  They’ve move on to Tinsley’s fall from grace.  They move on to Carole’s Election night party, which started some bickering.  Twitter does not like the election talk…I guess we’re not over it yet.  Too soon?  Bethenny calling Carole a Know-It-All is rich.  I wonder what Heather Thomson would say about that? know it all

The next morning we wake up with Tinsley & Sonja.  Sonja is trying to match-make for Tinsley.  Tins is very upfront with her story, which is kind of refreshing.  Ramona met up Dorinda for a little cryotherapy; surprise, surprise – Ramona ditches the treatment for a date.  She’s really fond of double-booking herself.  Funny how she needs to research cryotherapy, but not who she’s voting for.  Dorinda is still annoyed that Sonja is talking about the Bershires…still.  Sonja needs to let it go.  let it go

Moving on to “A Day in the Life of…” montage.  We learned how Tinsley became Blair Waldorf.  She curled her hair & walked a red carpet.  Y’all, Hannah is finally moving out of Dorinda’s apartment!  Yet, she still calls her mommy…  Why the hell would anyone want Hannah to buy a burnt orange sofa?  Even a frat house at the University of Texas wouldn’t do that.  Bethenny likes to clean & organize…come clean out my closet please.  We snuggle up to Cookie – I’m worried the bitch will quit sooner than we’d like.

Meanwhile, Sonja & Tinsley are setting up for the Mad Hatter party, where everyone ultimately dressed as Mona Lisas.  One guest opted out of the party because the pavers are too far apart for heels.  #ParkAvenueProbs  Ramona conveniently forgets people to put them in their place.  The Butler is borrowed from the Morgans, so he can say whatever he wants…for the record I agree with him.

Ramona was hangry & admitted that that is not the best time to meet her.  Is she hangry all the time? hangry

Looks like next week the ladies will be in the Hampton’s – my favorite!  Did Ramona say to Carole that Sonja hasn’t “burred the hodget yet.”  Carole’s look of confusion was the best.  GiGi is giving me Alex McCord vibes.  What the hell is Luann wearing?

This party is boring me so far…  I did like Bethenny’s dress, not so much Luann’s Pollyanna dress.  Ramona hones in on Tinsley & her single status & lack of children.  Luann pulls Sonja aside to confront her about Tom & Dorinda…you can fast forward through this part, it’s nothing new.  Sonja could’ve used some velcro rollers & dry shampoo to create some volume in her hair, but maybe that’s just my Texas ways.  big hair

What did you all think of tonight’s show?  I thought Ramona’s confessional look was awful.  She needs the swoop of her bangs to cover that ego forehead.

Until next week…

RHONY Recap: It’s Still About Tom

Okay, by now you know how I feel about season openers…BORING.  RHONY didn’t really have a ton going on, but the episode flew by.  Here were my few thoughts about the season premiere.

  1. Bethenny is selling her apartment because it’s no longer Hoppy.  Fredrick from Million Dollar Listing NY is selling it in his corduroy suit.  Bethenny says corduroy weird…”cord-AH-rawr”.  It sold in one day – cash offer, full price!  Do you think the buyers gave B a briefcase full of cash?  Oddly enough, I actually think Bethenny is right to sell the cursed apartment.
  2. Sonja is still pissed that Dorinda didn’t invite her to the Berkshits.  As Ramona would, “MOVE on!”  or “Take a Xanax.”  Sonja’s also in an off-broadway play giving sex lessons.  Sonja’s international following filled up the seats???
  3. Everyone, & I mean EVERYONE, is still obsessed with Tom.  Luann, obviously, is the only one that should be obsessed at this time. About Tom
  4. Ramona is remodeling her apartment…I’m not entirely sure about her taste.  She can’t get over the fact that her contractors name is Mario.  News flash: there are other contractors.  Ramona wants Mario to help her find a man to play with.  Gross.Ramona
  5. Carole & Adam have moved in together; oh I’m sorry, they are shacking up.  They also got two new kit-tens, as Carole says.   Carole is obsessed with the election – this season was filmed in the fall of 2016.  I kinda liked Carole’s political Twitter feed.  She was clearly a biased journalist, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
  6. Dorinda & Carole have decided to be friends again, & that no woman wants to see a cop in a thong – CORRECT (talking about Luann’s bachelorette party).  Blue Lives Matter, ladies. Cop
  7. Sonja is donating clothes to Dress For Success per Bethenny’s request.  How the hell does Sonja remember all the stories surrounding her clothes?  They took this opportunity to shit all over Luann & Tom.  Ugh.
  8. Bethenny got two super cute new puppies, Biggie & Smallz.  I’m sad that Cookie is so old…we not see her next season.  Puppies
  9. Sherlock Singer is still taking everyone opportunity to find out dirt on Luann &/or Tom…as often as she can.  Am I the only one that feels like Ramona is only friends with Luann when it is convenient to her purposes?  With friends like that, who needs enemies?  I blieve Ramona’s toast to Luann’s pending nuptials was something along the lines of, “Break a leg.  No, seriously, break your f’ing leg.”  That’s what I heard anyways.
  10. Did anyone else think that the blonde cast members’ hair looked slightly pink-ish in their confessionals? Frenchie

Did I miss anything?

RHONY Cast Analysis – Updated

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.  Season 9 Cast

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.  Bethenny.gif

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. Carole

Dorinda:  I love Dorinda Meddler!  I love that she meddles & turns shit up!  We need her kind of drama.  DramaShe 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.  LuAnn

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. Ramona

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!  Sonja

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!

Real Housewives: “Characters”

Hey y’all…I thought it would be fun to “cast” each housewife, in all cities, into specific characters.  This list consists of the ladies from the current or most recent Season.  I am omitting the ones we already know have left the series (Yolanda, Jules, etc).  Many of the ladies fit into more than one category…

Here goes nothing…heather

 

The Victim: victim
Vicki – RHOC
Lisa Vanderpump – RHOBH (also a Master Manipulator)
Ramona – RHONY (also a Pot Stirrer)
Teresa – RHONJ
Kenya – RHOA

 

The Pot Stirrer: pot-stirrer
Tamra – RHOC
Lisa Rinna – RHOBH
Eileen – RHOBH (particularly last season)
Bethenny – RHONY
Jacqueline – RHONJ
Porsha – RHOA

 

The Fixer: fixer
Shannon – RHOC
Kyle – RHOBH
Dorinda – RHONY (she stirs it up, but also tries to fix it)
Siggy – RHONJ
Kandi – RHOA
Sheree – RHOA

 

The Smart One: smart
Heather – RHOC (also a Fixer)
Carole – RHONY
Phaedra – RHOA

 

 

 

The Dumb One: dumb
Kelly – RHOC
Dolores – RHONJ (specifically because she relies on her ex-husband financially)
Melissa – RHONJ (she has some trouble using words correctly)

 

 

The Lily Pad One: lily-pad
Meghan – RHOC (I actually think Jim will “Lily Pad” Meghan)
Erika – RHOBH (I heard rumors that her husband may be heading to the big house)
Cynthia – RHOA (because Peter is a Tool McDouche Nugget)

 

 

The Delusional One: delusional
Luann – RHONY (specifically because of Tom)
Sonja – RHONY (less so this season – is she delightfully naive?)

 

 

I don’t regularly watch the Real Housewives of Atlanta, so please let me know if I’ve mis-cast someone…from any of the cities.  How would y’all cast the ladies?  Did I forget anyone?

RHOC: Cast Analysis

Okay y’all, I haven’t done one of these in a while.  Here goes nothing…

First of all, the outfits in this promo picture are horrendous, specifically Meghan.  rhoc

Let’s dive in with the ladies shall we?  Remember this is just my take on the ladies & their antics.  Agree or disagree, but keep it respectful. 🙂  This list is in order of longest on the show to shortest time on the show.

Vicki:  The OG of all the cities, & we can all thank her son Michael for getting her on this show.  Vicki is my least favorite of all the franchises.  She has quite the ego; her head is so big I don’t know how she stands up.  Gretchen was 100% correct when she called Vicki a hypocrite all those seasons ago.  If you were to look up the definition of hypocrite, Vicki’s picture would be next to it.  Vicki seems to have a real problem taking accountability for her actions & deflecting her problems on others, playing the victim card constantly.  However, she loves holding her cast mates to a higher standard & is often mad at them for things she has done herself.

So obviously, I can’t stand her, but I dislike the same “character” in all the cities.  This is the character that always has to be right, can never apologize, & when they do apologize it is insincere or they take it back.  You would recognize this person as Teresa from NJ, Ramona from NY, Kenya/Nene from ATL, & LVP from BH.  I don’t count Dallas & Potomac as they have not had a second season & we haven’t seen their true colors yet.

Tamra:  I vastly prefer Jesus Jugs Tamra to Simon’s Tamra.  Tamra is definitely the shit stirrer, but she apologizes when necessary & means it.  I’ve enjoyed Tamra immensely without the Gretchen drama…or the Simon drama.  Without Simon, there is a lot less Vicki drama as well…go figure.

Heather:  Heather is one of my favorites!  I know many of you disagree & think she’s pretentious…she definitely can be.  Does anyone really need 4 kinds of ice?  However, she brings a certain level of class & intelligence to the OC that I really appreciate.  I think she & Terry realize this fame can be fleeting & are cashing in big – I admire that tenacity & hustle.

Shannon:  In all honesty, I couldn’t stand Shannon her first season – I thought she was a wack-job, but I definitely have enjoyed her since.  She knows how to have fun & whoop it up with or without The OG of the OC.  She’s goofy & weird – all that new age crap is fun to watch.  I love that she’s so into it, but doesn’t actually seem to enjoy it (see cupping).  Let’s be real, we all have a little Shannon in us.  shannon-beador

Meghan:  Okay, I truly think Meghan would have been a one-and-done Housewife, EXCEPT for the fact that she was right about Brooks.  Had that outcome been different, she would have been gone after her first season for sure.  I didn’t mind her last season, but I am not feeling her at all this season.  MKE is stunningly beautiful, but my biggest complaint is that she makes very unfortunate headgear mistakes; whether it’s a really bad hat or headband, must they always have sequins?  She’s too old for this…anyone over the age of 13 is too old for sequins.mkeLet’s not forget the pink hair, if I’m not mistaken it was for a good cause, but it was a very bad Pepto Bismol shade of pink.

Kelly:  Wow-wee Kelly!  She is on the Hot Mess Express as Cameran Eubanks would say, going nowhere fast.  Kelly reminds me so much of “Simon’s Tamra.”  She lashes out & doesn’t know how to control or deal with her anger properly.  Maybe she should take up kickboxing or scream into a pillow?  If Kelly gets a second season, it will be very interesting to see how/if she changes.  She doesn’t really add much value to the show & at this point I wouldn’t even notice if she was gone.

What do you guys think of the RHOC ladies?  Do y’all agree with my analysis of each Housewife?

RHONY: An Open Letter to Bethenny

Now that the season is officially over, I feel can get a few things off my chest about the one & only Queen B.

Dear Bethenny Frankel,

I really miss the strong feisty woman you used to be.  What has happened to you?  Where is the girl of yester-year that lovingly snarked on all her costars, & everyone was fair game?  I miss your equal opportunity snarky confessionals.  I felt like you always said what everyone was thinking, now the targeted cruelty is painful to watch.

This season in particular, you brought the entire season to a level so low it’s a wonder we could even see it at all.  You turned Carole into a mean whiny brat, much like yourself.  Both of you used to snark so beautifully, but together you’re horrible, diabolical mean girls.  Careful – your ugly black heart is starting to show.

Haven’t you ever heard that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar?  This season you weaved a complicated web of vitriol & cruelty, & none of your costars were spared.  You even went after your beloved Carole at one point; however, more often than not she was your cohabitant of said web. Charlotte's Web

I feel that all the focus you give towards spewing hatred must be exhausting you, because girl you’re looking haggard.  You remind me of skeletor, Marc Anthony…rough.  Marc Anthony
You are very reminiscent of the Bethenny that treated the ex-husband like a piece of gum you can’t get off the bottom of your shoe on Bethenny Ever After.  You also remind me of Kelly Bensimon telling you that “She’s up here & you’re down there,” but now you’re Kelly treating your costars horrifically.

The way you don’t seem to care recognize that you are horrible to your castmastes shows your true colors; perhaps you’re the Village Idiot?  Treating people like they are undeserving of your time does you no favors.  Perhaps anger management classes would benefit you, or you should go back to your therapist?  Everyone you encounter deserves some basic level of respect, simply due to the fact that you’re both human.  The way you treat people is disgusting & deplorable, you should be ashamed of your behavior.

I would love to see a strong, happy, supportive, & open-minded Bethenny next time you’re on my TV, whether it be RHONY or another platform.  Please de-compress after this past season of RHONY, & come back refreshed & better than ever.

Kiss Hug,

RHONY Recap: Reunion of Hypocrites, Cocaine, & Vocab Lessons

As per ushe, I was babysitting Wednesday night & was late to watching the reunion.  First things first, let’s talk fashion.  Reunion

Jules looked great & healthy! She lost a hermit of a husband, but managed to gain a little weight & she has never looked better!

Sonja looked beautiful, as always. She almost glowed, she was so luminescent.

Dorinda looked good. Her hair was shiny; she looked healthy & sober. Dorinda does love a sequin & bedazzled outfit.  Fetish?

Luann looked like maybe she has put on some weight, but I think it was just the way she was sitting.  Either that, or jumpsuits are not very flattering to her…

Bethenny looked fine as usual…nothing special. I thought her face looked a little gaunt. Did her jumpsuit (dress?) have a cape on the back or Tinkerbell wings?

Ramona has the worst fashion sense & always has. She doesn’t seem to know what is age appropriate.  Spaghetti straps, really?  At least she wasn’t wearing macrame.

Carole looked like a feather duster. Enough said.  I did like the braid in her hair.

Now onto the show, it started off friendly as they usually do.  I thought we were glimpsing the old Bethenny, but I was quickly proven wrong…to my dismay.  Andy quickly delved into Dorinda & John’s relationship.  Dorinda said that it is hard for people that knew her in her marriage to like John.  He’s very different than her husband, visually.  What does that even mean?  They weren’t twins, so of course he is visually different.  Duh.  Andy then brought up the eighth Housewife, Dorinda’s alleged drug use.  Bethenny refused to discuss it by implying that she could destroy Dorinda in the process.  Why even dangle that carrot then?  All of the women, with the exception of Sonja, keep mum & ask Andy to move it along while looking shifty & uncomfortable.  Sonja flat out says, “We all know you do drugs.”  Dorinda adamantly denied drug use…perhaps John drugs her on the sly?   Dorinda

Andy briefly moves onto Jules, the divorce, & how she’s doing, which okay.  Then onto Ramona’s love life.  She shouldn’t be allowed to talk.  Is Ramona constantly trying to play it coy?  Or is she just that stupid & offensive?  I have to wonder if gay people find it offensive when they are referred to as “The Gays” or “My Gays” by any of the Real Housewives.  I’m offended & I’m straight.  We also learn that Luann cannot pronounce Radziwill, Sonja, or Switzerland. Ramona cannot pronounce didn’t.

Things finally get more interesting when the Bershits Berkshires are brought up.  Does Dorinda really eat a week old birthday cake?  Can we collectively all say EWWWW? Although, the sentiment was nice to share her cake with Hannah’s cake.  Andy then deep dives into the Bethenny slut-shaming Luann propaganda.  B could not admit that her behavior was disgusting & that she slut-shamed Lu.  Bethenny became a little unhinged, which seems to be her MO.  Luann called out Bethenny’s hypocrisy by pointing out that she is dating a married man, while still married herself.  In the state of New York, legal separation is recognized with a signed decree.  separation

So whether or not Bethenny was “cheating” is hearsay, but she was definitely overly defensive, which to me made her look guilty as charged.  I thought calling her boyfriend’s daughter was uncalled for, low, & embarrassing.  This made a bad situation worse, & seemed very contrived.  I really used to love Bethenny, but maybe it’s time for another hiatus from RHONY?

I went back through Twitter & found my favorite Tweets from Part 1: 1.11.21.31.4

What did y’all think of the reunion?  I can’t wait to see Part 2!

Kiss Hug,
