A teachable moment in blackface?


Three months ago there was a national discussion regarding blackface in America. When NBC host Megyn Kelly said it was OK when she was growing up for white people to dress up as black characters.  Kelly, spoke out against a controversy that erupted last year when Luann de Lesseps appeared to darken her face when she portrayed Diana Ross on “The Real Housewives of New York. Some of de Lesseps cast mates questioned her judgement.

Kelly  believed, “blackface” wasn’t racist. She believed it was okay as long as you were dressing up like a character.

Kelly’s “blackface” comment was discussed on every news channel in America for nearly two weeks. The story was in every Newspaper in America including the Sacramento Bee.  In a tweet, Megan Kelly said the paparazzi have been stationed outside her home.

After apologizing, the National Broadcasting Company cancelled her show.

December 2018, Megan was released from her contract.

January 2019, Carmichael, California (a suburb of Sacramento)

Elementary Students at the Victory Christian School learned about the works of David Livingstone a British missionary and explorer who worked in Africa in the late 1800’s The guest speaker, wanting to make her role more realistic put on an African garb and darkened her skin to resemble an African woman.

Victory Christian School Black Face

 

 This presentation was approved by the school Superintendent John Huffman.

Many parents of this school were outraged. The Superintendent say’s he used poor judgement.

Huffman also issued a statement to FOX40 News which broke the story that reads in part  “I was wrong to allow the use of makeup no matter how innocent the intentions as it has offended some of my students and parents. I should have anticipated that this could be offensive, and I apologized to my students and parents asking to be forgiven for hurting them.

It’s difficult to believe the Superintendent was “that” tone deaf.   Good parents tell their children not to make fun of others.   As it is often mean and cruel. This is reinforced by our schools and religious communities.

Blackface is a form of theatrical make-up used predominantly by non-black performers. (whites). These images were often exaggerated and the performances often reinforced stereotypes.   These stereotypes were not just limited to black people, other ethnicities were affected,  Mexicans, Jews, Asians, Native Americans, the list is long.

Megan Kelly, in defense of her statement ,mentioned people in “Whiteface”. No one challenged her.

The parents of the Victory Children’s School will have the final say on the future of Superintendent Huffman.

Not only is it 2019,this is Sacramento, California one of the most racially diverse cities in America, not Selma Alabama or Paris Texas.

The Real Housewives of New York S10 Reunion Part 3 “Bethenny, Bethenny, Bethenny, lets not talk about Bethenny!


Its a wrap

We began last night where the show ended last week with Carole telling bossman Andy ” He was full of Shit” for saying that Carole and Bethenny trashed each other the entire season.

Image result for correct gif

Nearly half of the episode was the Bethenny and Carole feud, it was endless and ruined the reunion, at this point I’m on team “can’t give two shits”.   If you need details of their bickering, stop here and read another review. I can’t!

Sonja Tremont Morgan

Image result for sonja morgan season 10 reunion

For most of this season I thought there was something different about Sonja.  We love her ditzy gentleness.  But there was something different.  While she didn’t seem to get much screen time but she seemed insightful and sometime brilliant in her confessionals.

Yes, I said it!   Sonja Tremont Morgan.  Last night we learned that she has (I’m not fully clear about this) had some spiritual cleansing? (again, I’m not sure).  She has cut back on the drinking and she seems clearer, more so than ever before.

The spiraling Sonja has found her footing.  She has rented her townhouse, moved into a small apartment and for the first time she seems to have direction.   Bravo, didn’t let us see her move out of her townhouse, we weren’t privy to her personal successes, shame.

Bethenny said she regretted calling Dorinda a drunk, which moved Dorinda to tears.  Carole said that she regretted failing in her attempt to remain cordial with Bethenny. She didn’t regret calling Andy “full of shit’.  Ramona and Sonja made up, a bit.

Let’s Not Talk About Bethenny

Image result for bethenny frankel gif

The real housewives of New York survived the dreaded season 10 Housewives curse.   At its worst, New York is the platinum franchise.  The disintegration of the friendship between Bethenny and Carole was sad and dominated the season but destroyed the reunion.  The resentment towards Bethenny by half of her cast mates was clear and with merit. No one can take away her heroic efforts in Puerto Rico.

At beginning of the reunion, some of her cast mates accused Bethenny of “only doing things for the cameras”.   Carole has written about it on social media.  On the reunion,we see montage of Ramona attacking Bethenny ,what we don’t see are images of Bethenny attacking Ramona.  In fact ,we rarely see images of Bethenny attacking cast members,no one has a deadlier sword than Bethenny.  What we see is a regretful apologetic Bethenny, who has sliced and diced nearly every cast member since her return.   I am a huge fan of Bethenny Frankle, I love her intelligence and humor.  The producers of #RHONY seem to project a positive image of Bethenny, perhaps to protect her brand.  I believe the producers have created a wedge between Bethenny and her castmates which in the long term could ultimately damage the show.

It’s Lu Baby!

Image result for luann de lesseps dancing gif

This season, I believe Luann had the most compelling story line from beginning to end. We saw her at lowest and we saw her comeback.   I thought the conflict between Dorinda and Luann was far more layered than Bethenny and Carole.   Her absence was notable.  Luann’s story has captured our hearts..   Make some room, its Lu baby!

I will miss Carole, she was a formidable presence.  We didn’t see enough of Ramona this season, the same was true for Dorinda.  I’m on the fence with Tinsley, she doesn’t have a storyline and she doesn’t hurt the show.  I suspect there is something there, its deep, dark and bubbling  Drip, Drip, EXPLOSION!!!

 

See Ya next season….thanks for following.

The Real Housewives of New York S10 Reunion Part 1″The Bethenny Pile on”


 

Image result for the real housewives of new york season 10 reunion

This is tenth reunion of Bravos second oldest Housewives franchise.  After a little research, I think I know the secret sauce that makes New York superior to the other cities, it’s continuity.

Vicki Gunvalson is the grand dame of all the Housewives franchises.  She has been with Orange County since the beginning.  However, her other cast mates haven’t been there as nearly as long as she has.

In New York, most of  the ladies know each other  through a mutual friends. At last nights reunion, we learned that all the women (with the exception of Tinsley) knew the first seasons cast member Jill Zaran.  Most have known her for more than 10 years.

In New York, Ramona Singer is the grand dame, she has be a full cast member for the run of the show.   Luann has also been a cast member for 10 years, however by the sixth season she was demoted as a friend of the show. she was reinstated to full time status by the seventh season.   Bethenny Frankle, left the show at the end of the third season and returned the seventh season.   As for the rest of the cast, Sonja Morgan seven seasons, Carole Radizell six, Dorinda Medley three and Tinsely Mortimer two.   These women are connected by way of mutual friends and New York’s social scene, this is their secret sauce. Only three cast members in Orange County have appeared longer than two years.

When a new housewife comes on board, she and her cast mates often spends a season or several seasons adjusting to each other, it makes good dramatic TV but it takes time for the personalities to Jell.  This season, Orange County has added two cast members, they don’t seem to have any connection with the other castmates.

In many ways this group of women in New York is like family.  You may love them all of the time, but you make not like them most of the time and there are some you just cant stand at anytime, but tolerate during holidays and special events.   Like family, the alliances change. One year you cant stand your brother and three years later, your good freinds.

For years, Sonja and Ramona were insperatble, this year they aren’t speaking.   Luann and Bethenny was at the center of some of #RHONY’s biggest fights,

no title

this year they have grown close.  Bethenny and Carole are out, as is Dorinda and Luann,  Carole and Luann rarely spoke for a few years and today they are building a friendship.

Part One of Season 10 #RHONY Reunion

Most of the housewives came to war in gold. With Dorinda and Sonja looking the best.  Sonja took a page from Bethenny’s book and wore the dress she designed. $179

Missing from the battlefield was Luann ,who was in Rehab at the time of filming.

Andy seem like he was in a mood, and that may help set the tone for the evening.  Carole’s phone went off an he was in attack mode.  The first half of the reunion is the typical boring shit.  How’s your hair, you look good.  A look back, blah, blah blah!

 

One thing that is very clear at this Reunion is there is a lot of anger and resentment.  Most of it directed towards Bethenny.   The Ramona and Bethenny relationship is long an deep.

Full disclousure:  I am a BIG fan of Bethenny Frankle, she is very intellegent, extremely funny, and at times a neroutic mess.

Bethenny is the golden housewife, who we witnessed start with nothing and built an empire.  We’ve seen her raw, and very emotional. However, we have seen a real mean ,nasty dismissive Bethenny.    We’ve seen Bethenny slice and dice many housewives especially, Luann, Sonja and Ramona.    Ramona is no match for Bethenny’s ginsu tounge.   Last week, when Ramona attempted to confront Bethenny at Luann’s after party.  Bethenny shut her completey down and she has done this before.

Ramona, has more to say at last nights reunion than she did all season.   Intinally I thought it was jealousy.   But when you listen to her  go on an don about her acomplishment and how she put herself through school, while Bethenny’s rich father paid for her schooling.   I think Ramona want some acknowlegement about the things she’s accomplished.

When the season began, ten years ago, Ramona had made her mark on her own.  She unlike Bethenny who was stuggling to get Skinnygirl off the ground had made her own money.  She didn’t want to depend on a man!       So when Bethenny highlights and dismisses Ramona’s and failures, this is personal, especially when Bethenny doesn’t acknowledge her own businesss failures,  that some of her castmates reminded her of.

Ramona, says Bethenny doesn’t support other women .  At one point Ramona reminded Bethenny criticized Sonja for having fake businesses.  Bethenny said, she never criticized Sonja.   (where was the tape?) this set Ramona off.  “Oh my god, I can’t take her lies. I may walk off for her lie,”

 

“The Bethenny Pile On”

cuteness kitties gif
 

It’s tough being Queen.  Just ask, Nene Leakes, Vicky Gunvalson  Lisa Vanderpump and one of my new favorites Leeann Locken from Dallas.

Last night, Dorinda, Ramona and Carole, came for Bethenny.

Last night, plugged in the wayback machine and in it. we saw how through the years Ramona has been beyond nasty to my gurl Bethenny.  We also saw the nuturing side of Bethenny, how she comforted and knew the right things to say to the housewives.  What we didn’t see was her negatives, her attacks.   She called Dorinda a drunk.   She was a horror to Ramona a few weeks ago and seems to save her rage for Carole on social media and the two former besties were in a raging battle online.

They accused Bethenny of doing things for the Camera, including meeting with Jill Zarin at her husbands funeral.  Carole has questioned her motives in Puerto Rico.   All alone (Ramona actully covered Sonja’s mouth when she tried to come to Bethenny’s aid)  Andy reminded the women that Jill asked for the cameras to come in and that they were on a Reality TV show so filming is part of what they do.

Bethenny could have used Luann .

The Real Housewives of New York S10 Ep 19 ‘Life is a Cabaret” Bitch!


 

Season 10 is a wrap. The New York ladies is the first franchise that survived the curse that befell Orange County and Atlanta.

Last night episode was the premiere of  Luann’s cabaret show.  The women were dressed to slay, at the opening.  Its was sequins, shoulders and jumpsuits .

The heat between Luann and Dorinda continues.  At Tinsley’s penthouse, Dorinda mentioned, John wasn’t invited to the show.  Dorinda say’s  Luann told her earlier that day that she didn’t know John wanted to come and there was no room for him. “If you wanted him to come, you should have bought a ticket,”  Here, I’m on team Luann, like this wasn’t a POP UP show, why would wait until the day of to ask for a ticket for your boyfriend.  Luann is star of the show and this is opening night , she’s  super stressed and your pissed that she is  dismissive?

Dorinda Go Home!

I love Dorinda, Lady M the East Side Gangsta.  Her anger and disappointment with Luann has consumed her.  Everywhere she goes adark cloud follows affecting all around her.  She just should stay home.

(Okay, I know this a reality show and she has to be there,but DAMM!)

As they wait for the show to begin, Tinsley tells Carole that Luann invited her boyfreind Scott earlier in the day, but he was out of town.   Tinsley asks Carol, should she tell Dorinda.   (Here’s a thought-HELL NO!)     Carole agrees with me.

Speaking of Carole, da gurl is being shady.   Initially, I thought she wanted to heal the ever growing fire storm between Dorinda and Luann.  The reality seems, she wants the two to explode.   You have the combustible Dorinda who is beyond angry and resentful towards Luann and Luann who’s grown weary of Dorinda’s stanky attitude and from the side you have Carole pushing Dorinda into a confrontation with Luann.  Don’t you want to stay and say something to Luann?

 

SHOWTIME

#Countess and Friends

What we saw, was no fluke, the show was beyond!   And its a bonafide hit.  (Before her relapse. the show was on a national tour)   Our Countess turned adversity into  a fun night, she poked fun at herself, her stint in jail, her marriage to Tom, all the while looking stunning.    Joining her were comedians, actors and Sonja.  Who just had to expose her body, despite a request from Luann,  to be cool on the first night because Luann’s 89 year old mother and her son would be in the audience.  But our Sonja couldn’t help herself and it all came undone and it worked.

Image result for countess and friends tour

The energy from the audience was outstanding.   One of my favor parts of the show is when Luann was talking about her arrest and mug shot and TINSLEY got caught up and gave Luann this sort of right on girl ,I got a mug shot too!    Everyone was into to it.

Wait, not quite!  Dorinda was that face in the crowd, that was too angry to get into it.   She wanted to be acknowledged.  She pick out some of the dresses for Luann for the show and started shouting  “Jovani” ” Jovani” every fucking time Luann would come out. 

Image result for the real housewives of new york city season 10 episode 19

Coming Together and Falling Apart 

Its the after party.  For the first time this season, Carole and Bethenny were having a nice conversation, they were talking about what was going on in their lives.  For a moment there was a glimpse of their old relationship, with a genuine hug, the barriers seemed to come down.  THEN Ramona appeared, disturbing the energy.     Bethenny asked Ramona to give them a minute.  Ramona: how long, one minute, five minutes, just being pissy.  Bethenny snipped back and told  Ramona he could call her secretary and schedule an appointment. But Ramona, has her own agenda.  This was too much for  Carole and she walks away, and what she and Bethenny had disappeared.

Ramona, is pissed at Bethenny for not showing up at her New Skin Renewal party.  She feels while she has supported Bethenny in her endeavors, Bethenny wasn’t there for her. and to add insult to injury,  Bethenny dismissed her without an apology.

Bethenny said  she didn’t go to the party because she doesn’t take Ramona’s businesses seriously because so many of them fail.  I’m on team Ramona on this one. You support your friends.   Before Bethenny became the SkinnyGirl Mogul, the ladies supported her when she was super poor.

At the after party Dorinda was still mad and planned to leave.  At one point she saw a friend and decided to stay,with the cloud over her head.

  With the exception of Sonja, all the women seems to be stirring up the John controversy.  Only Bethenny, heard Luann’s side and saw that Luann may just had a good reason to respond to Dorinda they way that she did.

Dorinda was already wound up, but add alcohol to mix and its a recipe for a slapdown.

Image result for the real housewives of new york city season 10 episode 19

It was Luann not Dorinda who initiated the conversation.   Dorinda tells her “I don’t want to talk about this on your big night. You were so great and you look so good, I don’t want to talk about how you didn’t invite John but you invited Scott.”

I was like, you look Wonderful, but your still a bitch!

Its reunion time, watch the video

The Real Housewives of New York: S10 ep18 “The Real Poop and nothing but the Poop”


Real Housewives Of New York Recap: There’s No Place Like Home

 

The reunion plane is boarding and ready for take off . There are two more episodes before it lands. Last night  we are beginning to see some sparks and possible fights during the reunion.  Bethenny and Carole is a given but the Colombian blow up between Luann and Dorinda is simmering.   Luann is crazy if she thinks Ramona isn’t going to comeback after taking a swipe at her remodeled Hampton home and everyone except Sonja is going to take a crack at Bethenny.

 “Lets talk about some Shit”

The ladies survived the boat ride from hell.  Tinsley is still caught up in her feelings about the trip .  Tinsley is still in denial.  Insisting that it was merely bumpy and the near death experience was a bit exaggerated . Carole said that Tinsley was in denial, like a battered woman  (everything was fine)and the tears began to flow.

Lets move on to some real shit.  The ladies spent a lot of time talking about their bowl movements, who is having solid or loose.  The conversation went into some deep shit, like how frequent and the consistency of the shit.  We learned that Ramona, lost a nugget and the east side executive smeared that shit across the floor, in their rented house in Columbia, that is some serious shit!

Image result for ladies!  gif

  Som more Shit  (TMI)

Last night we learned that Ms Sonja Tremont Morgan frequently wears a diaper.   YESSSSSSSS  Ladies and Germs.  A d-i-a-p-e-r.    Ms Morgan is an on the go gal.  She wears one when she goes to the Hamptons. Why be delayed by a number 1 or number 2,  when she is wearing something that gives her that exclusive feeling and she can avoid those icky public toilets.

Image result for hmm gif

As long as she is sitting in her own squish, who are we 2 judge?

“Right on Maude” I mean “SONJA”

A lil more shit with Sonja.   Her East Side Townhouse in on the rental market.  She no longer has a wait staff, so she is responsible for her cat and dog poop.   Who seem to have free rein and in the winter poop isn’t a problem, however with the melting snow, she is overwhelmed with poop and a potential client is on route.

Our divorced Ramona, (Mario who?)  is renovating everything.  Her Apartment, her boobies and now her 7000sf home in the Hampton’s .    When it comes to her decor, no stuffy design shops or Home Depot’s for her, its about point and click.    She is excited, Dorinda,Sonja and Luann are the first to see it .   There is no real imagination (to be fair, its in its early stages) but what we saw was white on white on white, with touches of gray and dog poop proof rugs.  For now its as sterile as a hospital waiting room.

Bravo can be shady and if I were Ramona, I’d be pissed after seeing this episode.

We get to see Bethenny’s 4000sf new apartment which is completely done. Bethenny likes white too, but the touches, the unique furnishings, elevates her place well beyond Ramona’s

 Image result for bethenny frankel's new loft

The only let down is the closet.  Real Housewife of Beverly Hills,  Lisa Vanderpump’s is larger than many New York Studio apartments and better appointed.

   Image result for lisa vanderpump closet

We love you Ramona! (sorry).  Sonja saw her apartment in its early stages.  Dorinda saw the final product.  The two sits down for a salad . Dorinda tells Bethenny she is still reeling from the trip, physically and emotionally AND she is still PISSED at Luann after what she went threw hell with TOM!   What kills me about this, both of them are being phony, kissy, kissy, we love each other and everything is fine!  Meanwhile, both of them are telling anyone who will listen, they’re pissed!

 Image result for two women i love you, I love you too gif

Bethenny and Sonja goes denim designers house. WHERE we learn they use sandpaper around the men crotch to make the package seems larger .

Image result for nothing here to see gif

 

Last night there was not one but two parties.  Carole hosted a casual athletic leisure themed party for  her Cosmo party. Based on her article about her she wrote about her participation in the NY marathon.  Home girl looked good as she arrived a track suit.  Dorinda splashed in with a tight zipped number in heel’s  Tinsley showed up in pigtails wearing her Columbia shirt WHERE she played tennis.   Her boo Scott was there in his trademark (yawn) sweater and jeans.     Carole’s ex Adam was there. It looks like Adam wants her back and two look good together.   Scott and Tinsley wants them to get back together

Ramona had a pre-lunch party for her skin care line.   My favorite part of the party was Sonja, who thought she would have a launch party of her own at Ramona’s party. As she came with shoes for some of the Housewives.  Some not all, Dorinda, shouldn’t expect a pair of shoes from the Sonja Collection anytime soon.

Notably missing from either party was Bethenny

 With Carole now hanging out with Tinsley and Luann and Dorinda on simmer. Bethenny and Luann are slowly getting close.  Last night Luann said:  “Now that Carole “out of the way,”  she can hang out with “fun” Beth.

Thoughts?

This was a real Shit show, literally, figuratively and emotionally……Dorinda Medley

 

 The Trip from Hell! 

Piss, Tears, Vomit, and Diarrhea 

The New York Housewives are always news.  This episode, taped last February was the real deal .   While vacationing on an island in Columbia, the ladies were told they had to leave immediately, some leaving their personal effects.   The water was dangerously choppy and things were flying off the boat.   Filming was halted.  At one point the engine caught on fire.  Apparently the boats anchor came off and got caught overloading the engine.  Shipmates had to saw the chain to free the ship and keep the boat from capsizing.  Add to this disaster (which could be a TV movie) they could only locate two life vests.   Four of the six women came home with a parasite.  Carole Razidwill believes it was from the fish they ate.  Tinsely and Bethenny are allergic to fish,and didn’t have the fish.    Nearly all the ladies had various forms of diarrhea.  

The final shot of the ladies leaving Columbia, was of a housekeeper washing down a mattress….   (oh Bravo) 

Ship Happens

This could be one of those episodes that you have to watch several times.  I’m not ready to call it Iconic, but its damm close.

After years of terrific vacations this one was from hell.

Its the morning after.    The ladies have gotten used to the never ending  Bethenny and Carole show.   The talk is about the other close friendship of  Luann and Dorinda.  We know the east side gangsta  (Lady M) can go long and deep. (especially after a few drinks)   But not with Luann.   But its another day, they’ve slept.     Lu is talking about the night before and when Dorinda arrives, she is on!     Another round of attacks.   When Bethenny and tries to calm Dorinda, Dorinda tells Bethenny to back off!    Ramona, attempts to cool Luann.   When Carole enters the fray, Bethenny attacks Carole and were off.  Tinsley considers cancelling the boat ride but they have done her hair.  (she has this thing about braids)

Is it the Sacramento heat or is Sonja Tremont Morgan the voice of reason, this season? 

She predicted this day would get worse.

Dorinda admits to Bethenny she went deep and nasty on Luann and is very remorseful.  Carole later encourages Dorinda to Luann to talk privately.

The two hash it out and its love and kisses.  However, due to the personal attacks, Luann is forgiving today.

Someone who should have had a private discussion is Bethenny, who is talking to the group at breakfast about Carole. She is so involved in telling this story that she doesn’t noticed what everyone else has, that Carole has entered the room or did she?

On the island, they let loose.  Finally, the ladies we love are finally having fun, enjoying themselves.  Luann finds a dead crab and decided to prank Ramona.   In the hammock, she drops the dead crab on Ramona’s chest, her screams could be heard in Peoria Illinois.    (Well played Countess)

Sonja, who is always the life of the party, didn’t disappoint.  She shared her finest with Columbia and left the price tag on the bikini for………

The island visit ended abruptly.  Everyone had to leave. On the boat, a drunken Sonja argued with a drunken and delusional Tinsley about how unusual and choppy the boat ride was. “Why would you bring us on that boat?”  Tinsley who was insisting the boat ride was nothing uncommon.  Tinsley was simply trying to save what has been a terrible vacation. “This is no fucking joke. This is like taking an airplane with one fucking propeller!”  Sonja screamed! as she was clinging to Ramona  “I just peed my pants!

There was real fear and panic with the women.  Dorinda  said she smelled smoke and said the boat was taking on water . Carole was vomiting .  Bethenny asked ” Why is there a siren?” and the screen went black.

“The production crew had to shut down due to rough waters and the safety of everyone on board” (Bravo)

Back in Cartegena,there is peace.  The ladies are in the house, ready to return to NYC.

Bethenny, “When we left that island we got on the boat from hell,” 

Luann, “We all thought we were going to die it seemed,”  “And I’m just holding myself on the ground, praying this boat doesn’t capsize.”

Carole,  “I worked as a foreign correspondent during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, said of her experience overseas: “It was nothing compared to what happened on that boat.”

What are your thought about the trip?    Luann and Dorinda?

The Real Housewives of New York S10 ep 14 “A little freaky Speed Dating”


Loved this episode, this time were gonna start with pictures.  Speed dating, New York Style.

 I wanna believe Sonja didn’t under stand when she said ‘I love hand marks the next day. Oh, my god,’ Sonja told him.  I think she was simply flirting.

Multi-tailed whip: A man at the speed-dating party whispered to Sonja that he has a 'cat o' nine tails' after she complained about weak spanking

You can buy this one at Amazon (yes daddy)

Turning red: Sonja blushed as the man told her about his leather whip

Tied up: The man continued that Sonja also would be 'tied up' and 'helpless'

Hand marks: Sonja buried her head as the man said he would leave 'hand marks' on her rear

 Sonja buried her head as the man said he would leave ‘hand marks’ on her rear!Image result for breathe gif

Take a Moment 

Let’s get through Some Blah,Blah, then onto the “Main Event”

The episode begins with Luann and her music director Billy Stritch who is a real deal in the music world as they prepare for her cabaret show, featuring Sonja Morgan.  Who says “It’s good to be back in her element”   Cabaret?  Sonja thought skin.  Luann assured her that there wouldn’t be snatch on display.  

Sonja wants to date.   Young Frenchy is history and the other older gentleman want to be serious.         Sonja goes over the Bethenny’s house to review here online dating profile which reads:  She’s  a model slash actress, a toaster oven gourmet, a creator of a global luxury and lifestyle brand and much more.    Sonja and Bethenny laugh over the crazy ass profile.

Tinsley is movin on up………  To the Penthouse of her hotel. (30K a month) her friend Michael in helping her move.    BF Scott is moving in with her.   Tins meets with Carole, her young ex Adam want her back.  (Hey, once your with a mature woman……. )he’s  is wooing her or stalking her, with flowers.  Carole isn’t sure.  She gets some roses from a woman who wants her to come to her Speed Dating Event,  she wanted Carole to bring friends.

Carole meets with Luann over coffee.  Luann is in AA.  Living in New York is challenging for her sobriety. Carole likes this Luann.

Ramona is working out, she says with her weight loss, everything looks good on her .

Blah, Blah over, time for main event Speed dating. 

It’s refreshing to see women over 40 dating and not looking like cartoon characters.   Were at the event.  Carole,Dorinda and Tinsley are not participating, they’re there  to observe.

Let be clear, Ramona at age 61, got game.  Mad game.  M’s Springer can work a room and every man in it.  She has long mastered the hair toss and the eyes.  Young ladies, take note.   She can make a man feel like the most important person in the room.

     Flirt expert: Ramona Singer moved in on the scarf guy at the speed-dating party

Next is Luann, who really just sexy.  She is a natural man magnet.

There were many men at the event.  But red scarf, was the prize of the night.  The event planner was saving him for Carole.  But Ramona, saw him and the red scarf…….Red scarf: Pro matchmaker Rori had a man in a red scarf in mind for Carole Radziwill

‘I came to the party just for this,’ admitted Sonja who called Ramona ‘mesmerizing to watch’.   And she didn’t disappoint, she worked Red Scarf and another man who thought she was in her forties.   Excited, she laid one on him.

    Turns out, red scarf turned out to be Brian, a lawyer who met Bethenny in Miami and he came to the speed-dating session in hoping to see her again.

 Back story: Scarf wearing Brian told Bethenny Frankel that he came to the party just to see her again

Beautiful Bethenny, doesn’t have game.   Her delivery sucks big time. When red scarf flirts with her. She say’s something about a blow job.   Red scarf really seems to be into Bethenny, who doesn’t seem to be into him.

Meanwhile, for Ramona, this is a contest.  I don’t think she wants him, but she want to take him from Bethenny.   She say’s she wants to send him a drink, after all he bought her one.   But it wasn’t that kinda event.    So buys him a drink and takes it over to him WHILE he’s talking to Bethenny.  Ramoma:  “You bought me a drink so I bought you one in return. Cheers, and then she walks away.      RS, is a bad bitch!   If she were 25, women would beat her ass at the club.

Sonja Morgan, will flirt with a plant and the plant would follow her home.  Her flirting is playful and mostly innocent.   Earlier this season, she flirted with a gay man.  And asked him if he was bi-sexual? He said, no and she said, If I buy you something would you get sexual?

So here we are,  all the ladies have met nice men.  No matches, but nice men.   Good sport Sonja is ovah in a corner with a man who has a food stain on his shirt.   She’s cool, like hey, I can be nice   So she flirts with the man.  The innocently start taking to him about spanking.  This man gets a hard on and start talking about how he was going to tie her up and how he is going to spank the hell out her and leave red hand marks.    It took, Sonja a minute and it hit her.  Oh fuck!!!!!!

At the speed dating event.  Tinsley invites the ladies to Colombia.  She tells them its totally safe.
