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.

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

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

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!

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 Season 10 Reunion Part 2 “Who has all the Receipts?”


Image result for the real housewives of new york season 10 reunion part 2

Part two of the RHONY reunion was much like part one. The Bethenny pile on continued however, I felt less sorry for Bethenny.

“Drunk”

The night began with Dorinda’s drinking.   Is she a drunk or isnt she?  Dorinda said she wasn’t drunk during her heated exchanged at dinner with Luann in Cartagena.  She also she wasn’t really drunk at other events including when she stabbed her hand at dinner.  Bethenny and Luann had mentioned Dorinda drinking however it seems that Bethenny backed down a bit and with Luann being in rehap, I guess we will never know.

For TV, Dorinda drunken rants are funny.  In the real world, her drunken antics is cruel, if your are the victim .  Right Sonja?   Who said:  Dorinda told her she can’t say anything because she’s always drunk: “Yeah, but I don’t get drunk and insult my friends’ vaginas.”   W eve seen Sonja drunk out of her mind, but she doesn’t t attack anyone.

We did learn from Bethenny that she was part of an intervention with Luann which included her boyfriend Dennis Shields who has since died of an overdose.  We also learned from Bethenny and Andy that a lawsuit filed by Luann’s ex husband and  her kids was one of the reasons for her drinking.  Ramona, Carole, and the other housewives have seen her drink.  Ramona says she has been tossed out of a few establishments.

The Skinny:  Her Ex and her kids suing Luann

Luann is being sued by her first husband Alexander De Lesseps and her children Victoria and Noel.    Part of the divorce settlement, required Luann to set up a trust for her two children.   Luann received the home in the Hampton’s, half of the home belonged to the children. Luann sold the home in November of 2014 for eight million. and used that money to purchase another home.  No trust was ever set up.  

Luann, and your friends say….

Cabaret Deck 02 Cover.jpg

Luann’s show is a bonafide hit!  Bethenny and Dorinda said that Luann was feeling herself a little bit after the success of the show.  (sounds a little snarky-wouldn’t a real friend just say “Hey, I’m really proud of my friend) They said, Luann ,let her ego go out of control because she felt like her trouble with the law made her even more famous. Dorinda said  Luann “confused fame with infamy.” 

“Say it forget it! Write it Regret it!”

Dorinda Medley

Say it again, say it again, SAY IT AGAIN!   So many tedious fights on Social Media begin an end with a tweet, message, or a blog posting.  Not just on TV but in our every day life.  I imagine for some people it is easier  to vent via social media then it is to make a simple phone call.  I am sure, producers encourage cast mates to vent on social media.

I wanted the friendship between Bethenny and Carole to mend. Today I’m  like a lot of viewers I’m over it.     It was a roller coaster ride, I was strongly #TeamBethenny but I started to turn after watching Bethenny talk about Carole with the other women, pretending Carole wasn’t there.   Then I invested in the tweeter rants (yes, I need a life).  Initially, was Bethenny sending out the tweets.  (Again this may have ended after an extended phone call)  Then Carole starting tweeting, her tweets we brutal, hard hitting.

Wednesday, night, Carole attempted to take the high road.  Every time Carole tried to talk. Bethenny interrupted her.  Then Carole snapped, she went off on Bossman (Andy) Telling him, he was full of shit.

  Both ladies had receipts, pages and pages of receipts.  Who said what when to whom?   Like most long term fights, when Andy asked them what caused this rift and neither of them knew.

The season was good, but the reunion has sucked so far?

Sonja Tremont Morgan looks good.   Word on the street, say’s she’s been re-freshed

See you next week!  Hoping for a bombshell!

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”

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 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.

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 ep16 Colombian Fight Night


Image result for the real housewives of new york city season 10 episode 16

 

  After several years of Vacation bliss with the ladies ,Columbia is a bust. Usually the ladies have a fight on the first night.  But this is the third night and not only is there one fight, there are two fights at the same table.   The only person who seems to be enjoying herself is Tinsley.  She is positively giddy having a glam squad at her disposal.

Last night, was odd, Ramona was relatively quiet and I found Sonja to be the person of reason. (Yes, I said Sonja.)

Bethenny’s is on her own with her breakdown.  After rejecting Luann’s attempt to be a comforting friend, the rest of the women are like “fuck her”  Dorinda said it best, when she says “Bethenny is used to having an ally, but a lot of us have been in situations now with Bethenny where maybe she hasn’t been so kind, so we’re less tolerant to being kind.”   Its this weird back and forth between Bethenny and the women.  I want my friends……  then oh get away, I don’t want to be with people now!   They are done with her!    When she realizes this, she calls her friend Dennis, to get her plane because no one wants to deal with her madness.

Bethenny changes her mind about the plane and goes shopping, with the exception of Dorinda and Sonja the other women are like go catch bricks bitch.   This isn’t lost on Bethenny, who shops until she drops.

The vibes between the women and Bethenny are as bad as it can get.  Carole talking to the other women said . “I just can’t engage with someone who is crying every time we talk.” I am sympathetic to that and it seems like Bethenny, even while trying to not make this about herself, is making it even more about herself. It’s deflection aggression.

Sonja takes Dorinda’s role as  shit stirrer and tells Bethenny every thing everyone has said about her.   With Bethany telling Sonja.  She doesn’t care.

A brief OG Moment

Between  meltdowns.  Tinsley, Dorinda, and Carole exits.   Leaving  Bethenny with a rare moment with some of the original cast members Ramona, Luann and Sonja.  “This feels like old times,” Bethenny says to them. “This feels like the originals.” 

 

This vakay is tense. The source of course is Carole and Bethenny.  Bethenny wont look at Carole. Everyone wants them to fix it!  Hoping to lift the dark cloud that’s ruining the vacation.   With Sonja and Bethenny being chummy, Carole goes to Sonja hoping that Sonja could lend some insight, but Sonja has nothing substantial to add and late reports  Sonja reports to Bethenny.

The

in the Room

Carole want to deal with it!  She says she loves Bethenny but she doesn’t get it!  A very emotional Bethenny says their relationship has eroded.  BUT WHY, HOW!   Perhaps the silence between them went on too long.   There is frustration on both sides. Carole wants a quiet private conversation.    Bethenny is very emotional and                                        is yelling at her, accusing her of making things up. Screaming about Text messages and is demanding validation from Carole!

Meanwhile at the other end of the table

Dorinda and Luann are about to go deep.   We love our Dorinda but she’s has tossed a few and Lu said to her ” You’re about to turn”   and she did!  Dorinda, takes no prisoners when she’s had a few!   And she went deep on Luann, deep and nasty.   The fight at the other end of the table was much safer.    She called Luann a felon and that she should drink some more and get arrested again.    Dorinda made  light of her Countess Title  (Say it with me DAMM!!!!) Luann says, “I see how you really feel now,”  Within some of her drunken venom is delayed truth.  Something that she wanted to say but using alcohol as a shield.  At one point, she knocks her glass over and it spills all over Luann.     Ramona, waved the waiter away to cut her off.    The words cut through a very fragile Luann and leaves her devastated.  Dorinda, wasn’t done, with Luann gone, she turned her sites to Ramona.

At the house, a shakened Luann tells Bethenny about Dorinda and her drinking.  Bethenny shares her experience with Dorinda in Florida.   After a few drinks, Dorinda was a jerk to Bethenny’s friends.   A pattern that repeats itself over and over.

                              Columbia has been a rough trip.  Is Dorinda a Alcoholic ?

The Real Housewives of New York S10 ep15 “Bethenny Breakdown”


'It's the worst feeling, your throat gets itchy, you feel like you're going to throw up,' she explained in a confessional. 'It's like a poison inside you' 

 

Its vacation time….  Colombia!  We see the ladies preparing for the trip.  As Bethenny is preparing to leave, we learn this is the last time she’ll be in her condo, she will be returning to a new home.

Ramona dragging her foot as she walks into a pharmacy.   It seems she just returned from vacation (what a life right?) in Morocco and fell down a flight of stairs.

Tinsley arranged this trip, and must have watched other episodes and in her own way she brought Ramona down a few pegs.    Through the years we have watched Ramona throw tantrums on vacationa demanding the best room in the house.   Tinsley, bought everyone a Tiffany Box with a nice ribbon.    As the ladies toured the house, they opened a box and in the box was a necklace with a housewife’s initial AND whoever initial was in the room got that room.   This was a lot of work…BUT it worked!  Ramona was fine, even with a room with two double beds.

All about Ramona

I’m not a wealthy person so perhaps I don’t understand the needs of wealth on vacation.  Ramona is VERY demanding on vacations.  She utterly helpless and rude to the staff.  She insists “The Help” unpack her thing and put them away, because she is helpless or too stressed after traveling.  I so appreciated the gentleman who helped Ramona to her room with her bags.   I’m not sure he understands English, as Ramona unpacked and asked the man to hang up her clothes, he left the room .  Shocking!   I friggin loved it.   It was like yeah Bitch, exit stage right!    She later was proud of herself for putting her things away.

Ramona wasn’t done!  She went into the kitchen, being all phony, talking about how she “loves to learn new recipes”  Instead of learning, she was insisting that there be no butter in anything they make for her.     Gurl go sit yo ass down somewhere!

Despite Ramona’s foot injury.  You know the one where she was dragging her feet and could barely walk.    Well on this trip, she didn’t pack flats.   While the girls were talking she took the elevator to get a pair of flats and got stuck.  No one heard her.

 

Scott and Tinsley Sitting in a Tree

Scott is wooing his boo.   The two have been together for a year now.   Not only did he fly out a glam squad for all her makeup needs.    He sent a giant wreath filled with 365 roses for their one year anniversary with their initials in the center.  It was grotesque, there was nothing romantic about it.   Bethenny was spot on, when she said it looked like a funeral wreath.

Brian, with the Red Scarf

This is Bravo’s Vacation, all Housewives on deck .   On this trip , if  there was someone who should have stayed at home, it was Bethenny.  She is going through it. At lunch, her first bite of food had fish in it. Bethenny is allergic to fish and returned to her room where she spent time lying on the bathroom floor throwing up .    Skinnygirl is going through it.  I will expand on it futher down.

After seeing him at the Speed Dating event,  Bethenny tells Luann and Sonja that  Brian had been texting her non-stop.   Throwing shade at Ramona, she said he wasn’t interested in her.

At dinner, with all the women present.  Carole starts talking about her date with Brian. (You guys, may have to remind me.  I didn’t think Carole was taking part in the Speed Dating thing)   Carole, throwing dirty shade said not only did they have a three hour date, he is not interested in Bethenny!

Of course this went south……….

This was just another log on the fire.

Carole was just being nasty.   What started out as hurt and a bit of Jealousy on Bethenny’s end has turned into and out of control fire storm with both women lashing out.   Bethenny:  “You’re acting like you won a prize and he’s just a consolation prize”

What they are both missing.  Red Scarf Brian is probably a troll and perhaps thirsty to be on the show.  I’m sure the other men, didn’t miss the cameras.  Red Scarf clearly spent a lot of time talking to Bethenny and to later trash her, come on Carole your better than that right?    All three women are very intelligent only Ramona had the sense to move on

Dorinda is a messenger, if she hears something she passes it on.   Is she a messy shit stirrer? yes…   As I said earlier, Bethenny is in a mood.   She tells Dorinda, that she thinks the house is junky.  She is thinking of going to a hotel.   So Dorinda tells Tinsley….BOOM!

Bethenny

This was a mandatory trip.  Bethenny should have stayed home.   Her place was sold and while she is in Colombia, her belonging are being packed up without her and moved to her new home.  The year long restraining order on her deranged ex-husband is lifting soon.  The custody battle with her ex is looming and she has lost her way with Carole, a person who she was really close to and wants back.

The next day, we can see her overwhelmed with the weight she carries.   Intelligent, Bethenny sometimes have difficulty expressing herself.  When Luann, (looking good in her blonde wig. Channeling Sofia Vergara )the person she is currently closes to,New do: Luann said she was 'vibing Sofía Vergara' in her blonde wig and red lipstick at dinner 

tries to find out what’s going on with her, at a time she really needs a friend. Bethenny  throws her out of the room and tells her she can’t have more people around and tells her,I’m no stranger to panic attacks. When Bethenny snaps, the other women don’t know what to do.  She wears a shield and its difficult to comfort someone wearing a shield.

Bethenny, is the person who rarely asks for help, she hates being vulnerable.  Its difficult for her to trust.  People she has trusted has turned on her.   Her mom is a terror.  She has sold stories about her daughter, with whom she has no relationship.  Her ex, who has said, he is going to destroy her.

 I believe her relationship with Carole may have been solved by saying I miss you, and I miss us.    But not today and quite possibly never.
