As per ushe, I was babysitting Wednesday night & was late to watching the reunion. First things first, let’s talk fashion.
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?
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.
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:
What did y’all think of the reunion? I can’t wait to see Part 2!
