'Real Housewives of New York City' reunion recap: Off with LuAnn and Carole's heads!

So it wasn't quite as dramatic as the French Revolution, but Countess  LuAnn de Lesseps found herself at the receiving end of a vocal guillotine in Monday's (Oct. 8)  "Real Housewives of New York City"  reunion.  After years of enduring LuAnn's imperious, ill-mannered (yep, we said it) condescension, it was truly gratifying to see her taken down by not only the plebeians  Ramona Singer  and Sonja Morgan  but also the princess herself,  Carole Radziwill . (Whom we suspect was hired by Bravo specifically to dethrone LuAnn.)  But Carole too was called out by her co-stars for saving her catty quips for her "interviews" (aka "confessionals") instead of confronting the women directly. LuAnn, who knows from royalty, sniffed, "That's not the kind of princess that I know."  Read More... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/10/real-housewives-of-new-york-city-reunion-recap-off-with-luann-and-caroles-heads.html

'The Real Housewives of New York' Reunion Recap: Return of the Trailer Turd

Part 2 of the  RHONY  reunion jumps right into the fray with LuAnn and Tomas and what may or may not have happened in St. Barths. "Allegedly," the Old Housewives couch continually corrects Andy. Evidently Jacques "politely declined" to be on the reunion show (wisely declined), but he and LuAnn are still together and he trusts that what she says is true and not what the cameras caught. LuAnn had prepared this preposterous, bullsh*t lie to tell everyone. We're obviously not going to get the 100% truth of what happened there. Even Andy, who is usually neutral-ish, seemed highly skeptical. LuAnn's French was also under scrutiny. She's really full of crap, isn't she.

'The Real Housewives of New York City' recap: Reunion Part 1 (Lower your expectations 3 degrees)

If the New Jersey reunion felt like a trip to an angry zoo, New York felt like going to a department store staffed with women who for the most part were in bad moods and didn't like each other. Holla? The big surprise of the night was that Ramona wore royal blue leather. What can she say? She loves color. A few things to set the scene: Aviva and Ramona haven't spoken since the season finale. Heather wore a Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue equivalent of a dress. LuAnn went for a low-key Gwyneth Paltrow at an awards show look. Sonja, duh, dressed like a tight, sparkly star in the sky. Aviva looked pinched, anxious to redeem herself to the viewers. Carole looked pretty and had her season-long expression of "I'm here sitting with these women, but don't confuse me for one of these women." Andy's first question was a polite "Then why exactly are you here?" "As a journalist [the show] appealed to me," she explained. "I think like most journalists we're attracted to spectacle—whether it's politics or war or a cultural phenomenon like the  Housewives  franchise." You're sounding like a windbag, Carole. "Doing the show is my guilty pleasure," she simplified. Now you're speaking my language. Read More... //tvrecaps.ew.com/recap/real-housewives-new-york-city-season-five-reunion/

'The Real Housewives of New York City' recap: Reunion Part 2: You Say You Want a Resolution?

The good news about the livelier second half of the Reunion is that we were spared a visit from George. The bad news is that Tomas did not show up in chaps and eyeliner and perform for the women. LuAnn groaned when a gleeful Andy announced that it was time to discuss  la scandale . First things first, how do you pronounce the pirate's name? "Tom-ah," said LuAnn. "In French you don't pronounce the S. So I really came home late with Thomas..." But right off the bat she wanted us to know that she and Jacques were still together and still very much in love. Ramona's eyes went roller-coasty on us, and stayed in that speed for the bulk of the segment. "Why would you call Jacques in the morning and lie to him?" Andy wondered. LuAnn said she panicked. She thought the cameras weren't on her. She thought only Countesses spoke French. Ramona, can you explain any of this? "Let's just say LuAnn loves her men and she can't keep her hands off them," said Ramona, wagging her pupils this way and that. "And you can take that however you want." LuAnn told her to zip it! Ramona insisted she was behaving. Heather, who's good at rapping a Housewife on her gel tips when she starts acting a fool, called Ramona out for firebombing an insinuation and then pleading innocence.

The Real Housewives of New York City Season Five Reunion Pt. 1 Review

Man, so much went down during tonight's The Real Housewives of New York City reunion that I have no clue where to start. LuAnn? Bonkers. Aviva? Delusional with a side of bipolar. Heather? Fearless. All the women had their time to shine on the couch, but there were a few moments of the night that were pure gold and this is only the first part of the reunion. Countess LuAnn vs. Princess Carole aka the "Royal Wars" While LuAnn came out swinging towards Carole - and surprisingly Heather - she really came off as an even bigger, gaudily snob than before. Let's face it, LuAnn wasn't that upset about the snide comments Carole made to her, because if that was really the case, then Alex McCord, Ramona, and even Bethenny Frankel would have taken LuAnn's haughtiness down a long time ago. What really fired up the Countess was how Carole pretty much called LuAnn out for asking Ranjana and Naeem Kahn, Carole's fashion designer friend, if she could wear their clothes, like a desperate groupie. LuAnn's ego was bruised to the core over the thought of someone declaring she wasn't worthy of wearing a dress made by the man who has designed people like First Lady Michelle Obama. The audacity!

The Real Housewives of New York City 5.18 Finale Recap: WWE Smackdown - RHONY Style

It was a drag-out, smack down finale for The Real Housewives of New York City tonight with enough booze, insults, and bruised egos to qualify as a WWE championship fight. While I won't indulge with a tale of the tape (that would be the previous 17 episodes of the season), I will give you the top fights of the night. Ding! Ding! Round 1: Aviva vs. Aviva The night started with Carole hosting an event which involved a ping-pong tournament, which all the women were invited to. Still incensed over Ramona throwing George out of her charity event, Aviva didn't want The Queen of Pinot Grigio to show up, as if the event was thrown by Aviva herself. After the event was over, Aviva couldn't help but bring up being disgusted by Ramona to Heather's husband, who clearly didn't want any part of that nonsense. Luckily, Heather arrived just in time to save her hubby and tell Aviva to drop the damn theatrics when it comes to Ramona. Read More... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/tvovermind/tvnews/~3/mrsSs96T7U4/

The Real Housewives of New York City Recap: Return of the George

Do you feel that melancholy crispness in the air? It means things are winding down; moving on. Last night, on The Real Housewives of New York City , a similar sense of anxious foreboding was afoot. Things were changing and ending, and not just the season. First, we learned that Aviva’s Horny Goat Weed Father, George, was in town, and he wanted liquid Vitamin D. About 400 dollars worth of it. I have no idea how one spends more than forty dollars in a health food store, but Aviva and George pulled it off, dropping some (however self-referentially) anti-Semitic slurs in the process, not even 48 hours before Yom Kippur. George wins the Mazel of the Never for that smooth move. Read More.... //www.vulture.com/2012/09/real-housewives-of-new-york-city-recap-season-5-episode-17.html
