Let’s Chat – Real Housewives of New York Reunion

Tonight is the first part of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion.  But first ….  let’s take a look back at premiere night – brought to LynnNChicago by WSL back in June.  As a reminder – there were three premier parties that night.

WSL and TEB hit all three.  JZ crashed two of them and made headline news ….

LynnNChicago  Real Housewives of New York Premiere by LynnNChicago

As I promised, we had a few spies at the Premiere Parties for the Real Housewives of New York.

Luann hosted a party, Ramona and Sonja hosted another and Aviva hosted a third.  Some interesting info on these parties:

She who much not be named went to Luann’s party as an invited guest but then she CRASHED Aviva’s party that was held at a bowling alley.  Confirmed, Jill was NOT invited to Aviva’s party yet she attended anyway. (note from NMD – sort of an invited guest – a guest of a guest as it turned out.)

LuAnn was cordial. Her party was only about 40-50 people. Intimate. She brought her mom.

Avery and Mario were with Ramona at her party.

Here’s a play by play (part one) from our own WSL….

The Evening’s Party Schedule for NYC HW Season 5 launch.
Iraquois Lantern  5pm

Seraina 7pm

Aviva Dreschers
Frames  8pm

Oh What a night!
So fun!
The President was in town so the traffic was a mess!
Dr Rosetta plastic surgeon to the stars jointed me and TEB.
At our 1st stop LuAnn her beau and her mom were front and center looking beautiful. The lantern room at the Iraquois Hotel is charming but small and holds about 50 people but everyone was elegant. I enjoyed talking to Luann’s very French- Canadian mom. She is 5’6″ and very cute her husband passed several years ago. She wore a beautiful royal blue and silver shift w/peacock looking large dangling earnings that were perfect for the dress. Quite elegant style. She said Luann was the 6th of 7 equally special children who are all tall. Her Dad’s dad was 100% American Indian. Her mom has lovely soft features and light hair. I didn’t feel comfortable asking if it would be ok to put her picture on a blog. It’s interesting she was a lamb a sneaky reporter could have asked her anything!

There were lots of reporters for lots of “papers” that I vaguely have heard of. For some reason we were snapped what seemed like a zillion times.
We were at the bar and Jill and Bobby came up. TEB teased me to say hello. I couldn’t be bothered, I saw Heather and wanted to say hello. So I made a bee-line for Heather.
My brother dates one of Heathers College suite mates.  She said Heather was always cool, lovely, stylish and very fun. We chatted, exchanged contacts and hugged. She is a DOLL!
The food was to die for and very artistically presented. It was like eating art!
Time flys!
Ready to hit the next PARTY!

Stay tuned …

Real Housewives of New York -Part 2 The Premiere Parties by WSL

Before we left Luann’s I said hi to Carole Radziwill very briefly and took a picture.

I called our driver and let him know we were ready for him to be out front . We decided that TEB would have to ride the hump since she was the youngest! The traffic was SLOW so we all hopped on Twitter!

It took 20 minutes to reach Sarafina so we were ready for a drink when we got there. Ramona’s wine was in big buckets and iced on the bar. The place had 160+ people and was packed.

I saw Avery and some of her pals. She has gotten so tall, maybe 5’7″. Ramona is petite at 5’4′ she had on gorgeous gold sparklie platform shoes. Avery had young lady pumps. Avery has natural blond hair that is thick. We call it “rich girl hair”. Avery was cute as she scurried around with her pals. She constantly checked on her mom who was taking hundreds of pictures with Sonja at the step and repeat.

Sarafina is a wonderful restaurant, the appetizers were excellent. The bite size lamb chops w/sauce were a little messy but way worth it. There was one treat on a skewer w/watermelon/cheese/meat that looked yummy and people licked their fingers but I never got around to eating!

I finally got a chance to hug my favorite Ramona. I adore Ramona. She doesn’t like to tweet so we text each other.  A while back I asked if Jill was coming and she text “NO WAY”! I laughed.

I think Bravo wanted the focus to be the current cast w/no “stars” taking the focus away from the cast.  I think it was selfish for Jill to crash Luann’s and Aviva’s parties.  At the entrance to each party there were 3-4 people with lists. The clip board holders were diligent to find your name and mark it off. I am sure the door people were not sure what to do with Jill. She appeared with Bobby just like she did on Scary Island, ASSUMING she was welcome when she wasn’t or she would have been invited.

If it was OK to come you would have thought Simon & Alex and Kelly would also have just shown up.  I think Jill knew better than to show up at Ramona’s. On Scary Island, Ramona made Jill leave even though she rented a plane to get there.

Hummm. Nothing changes!

So back to my divine Ramona hug. She smelled sooo good. Ramona is tiny. Her waist must be 19″.  She is cute like a puppy and I feel like putting her in my pocket to take home. She had on a gorgeous blue dress. With Ramona’s big brown eyes and no wrinkles I think she has the face of an angel. Mario is always close at hand. He is very handsome and not a lot taller than Ramona. We joked that I am married to an Italian Stallion too. Mario has lots of beautiful hair but it has gotten much more salt and pepper recently.

I saw several writers I know. The most famous was a Sr. fellow from Vanity Fair.

We just didn’t get close enough to Sonya to chat. TEB commented that Sonya was much prettier in person.

Time to hit the last party which was a very upscale bowling Alley. When we entered there was a 25′ hallway. So we are going in and guess who is coming out?  Yep Jill and Bobby.

Because I had been teased by my group for not acknowledging them and since I had to pass within a foot of Jilzy, I said our famous Italian family greeting:
A OH Eeeeeeeeee!
When I told WSM he didn’t think it was funny but he is also not aware of her sananigans.  Any way what can I say it just popped out!

We entered the party and probably half the folks had left cuz it was late.
It was very cool looking. Each alley had the Housewives show playing above the bowling pins on the play screen.

TEB knew Aviva and Rob of Naughty Nice. There were lots of hugs.
I talked to Aviva’s attractive Wall St. Husband, I was happy that he knew my company. We talked “street”. Aviva is darling!  She has a button nose only God can make.  Her hub looks close in age where the X Sonja knows looks 10+yrs older. They seem very in love. Aviva has a size minus 00 butt. She was wearing pants and her legs are the size of my very normal arms. You couldn’t help but like her. She is warm and genuine. Her brown eyes are as sweet as a lab’s.

I asked her if she wasn’t the one who called 2 gals “white trash”. (I happen to love that name)! She actually seemed to apologize and wish she hadn’t said it. At this point it seems out of character but that’s the fun, seeing the witches pop up!

Rob. (Shuter from Huffington Post)

Now first, Jill was NOT his date.
He heard Aviva say the same thing I heard! Nuff said.
I explained that we met when he moderated Teresa’s Annex presentation.

Rob is a big hunk. He may have the most beautiful head of hair I have ever seen. It’s too bad he isn’t straight, I think he is VERY handsome. He is one of those people who like to touch you as he expresses enthusiasm, it is endearing.  He was very personable and mentioned his husband lovingly.

Time to go home! I miss WSM!
We hopped in my car and left the live Housewives behind us.
What a privilege to have seen and met everybody. They all really give of themselves.

I DON’T PRETEND to be a writer but since I don’t talk to each of you I want to share.
I hope I shed a little extra light to my precious LynnFam.

Thank you WSL, sounds like you all had a fantastic evening!  Wish I could have been there! xoxo Lynn~


Reunion Time

There was a cute twitter exchange between the new girls yesterday on twitter.

A fan tweeted to Carole – @CaroleRadziwill Booo! You are my most favorite #RHONY which is easy because you are the only one who isn’t nuts”

Carole tweeted back: @iamheathert isn’t nuts either.”

Aviva chimed in: @CaroleRadziwill  Thnx Carole!”

Is it new girls versus veterans?  We’ll soon see!

  1. chismosa says:

    I really cant help but notice, compared to yesterday or even reunions past–how much better a lighting job the NY housewives are getting tonight vs Jersey. Maybe Advil requested it? Left couch seems to need the most help there. But happy to see Heather finally learned that much less is more on the makeup department, same as for Bethenny. Carol and Advil ‘s faces seem to look worse than during regular filming

  2. Nancy says:

    What’s with Lulu’s face? She needs a stylist. IMHO

  3. BB says:

    I find it interesting in retrospect that Heather and Carole attended Luann’s premiere party instead of Aviva’s party. Of course they weren’t going to attend Ramona and Sonja’s party. Lol. I don’t think they particularly like Aviva, but like Ramona and Sonja less and thought the public was going to take Aviva’s side. They were wrong. And Nobody knew about all the talking behind the backs that was going on before the show aired. I’ll talk to ya’ll tomorrow. I’m not gonna chat because I don’t want to be “influenced” when I do the recap.

  4. cusi77 says:

    Awww… So wonderful to read WSL again! Wsl_ Missing and loving you as always!

  5. Sus says:

    Let’s get ready to RUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Sus says:

    I like Lumann’s new haircut

  7. Lady Chatterley says:

    Aviva’s already practicing her bitch expression

  8. Eastbayca says:

    Aviva looks ancient…

  9. Austin says:

    As a journalist, it appealed to Carole. . . WTF?

  10. MamaZ says:

    I’m always so embarassed for LuAnn.

  11. AZGirl says:

    Lulu shut up…but I do like her dress

  12. Oh my goodness I love these ladies. They let each other talk. And they laugh at themselves.

  13. Kat from Ohio says:

    NY was my favorite while bethenny was there. now i think it’s probably atlanta for me, or beverly hills (minus taylor). i just thought this season ultimately didn’t deliver, though i thought the first few episodes were good. i thought carole turned out to be a big disappointment, and luann was surprisingly the closest to the voice of reason i saw… who knew? i always wished they’d make Joni (ramona’s friend with the really long hair) a housewife. she could always shut ramona down when ramona was being wild. they seemed to have a great, real friendship. i can’t watch until 10; my roommate hijacked the tv to watch gossip girl! haha don’t worry. i’ll get my revenge on thursday for my ultimate guilty pleasure (the vampire diaries).

    • amalfi says:

      I liked Bethenny while she was on there, but I have to say I like it better without her. She was a strong personality – and one I liked – but she was overwhelming.

  14. Eastbayca says:

    Lulu is actually doing more talking in this Reunion than the past.

  15. MamaZ says:

    Life &Style is a tabloid. Who is LuAnn kidding?

  16. MamaZ says:

    This is the best Heather has looked on the show.

  17. Eastbayca says:

    Who knew Heather had an issue with Lulu?

    • MamaZ says:

      She tried explianing to LuAnn at least twice that she was rubbing the others the wrong way. LuAnn didn’t get it. Heather also said in her blog that she was upset about the pirate thing. They had spent time with LuAnn and Jaques as a couple and I think Heather was really uncomfortable knowing LuLu cheated.

  18. AZGirl says:

    What is going on with the back of Lulu dress?

  19. AZGirl says:

    Ramona needs a make over. Too much satin and matchy matchy.

  20. NJBev says:

    Sometimes I look at Carole and think she is so attractive,
    other times she appears downright homely……….
    does that make sense?

    • Sus says:

      I can’t think of a better way to say it. She needs a haircut badly. Heather could use one too but not as much as Carole.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      YES…I feel the same!!!
      Hi Bev!!!

    • MamaZ says:

      I feel the same way. She looks nice tonight but sometimes it’s like the girl on the Seinfeld episode where the girl looks different in different light.

    • Kat from Ohio says:

      i totally agree. i think that because she’s very beachy, low maintenance in terms of beauty style (like how she wears next to know make up), sometimes that can make her look tired tired and old. i also suspect she doesn’t wear a bra. ladies! after a certain age, no matter how tiny those things are they need support!

      • Kat from Ohio says:

        *next to NO

      • chismosa says:

        I think some people can really pull off, to quote Sex and the City, the no-makeup makeup look- but others can’t. I think Chelsea Handler needs to put on way more makeup than she wears now. And I by no means am into tons of makeup. People just need to know their look and what works.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Chismosa, I need it. I wear it.

          • chismosa says:

            But you have a sweet soul. That’s all that matters. kidding, I’m sure you’re lovely inside & out

            “Oh she has a great personality”. You know how they say about people who are just not GREAT looking. Ha
            NOT YOU. Just it made me think of that. 😉

            • LaineyLainey says:

              My reaction to your comment was a rollercoaster of emotions, “sweet soul???” awwwww, “lovely inside and out?” awwwww, “great personality?” hmmmmm … “not GREAT LOOKING? Wtf????? “NOT ME?” and we’re back to AWWWWWW, again. 😉

      • NJBev says:

        ita, the bra issue!
        put one on!!!

    • chismosa says:

      There was a funny Seinfeld episode, the TwoFace where Jerry was dating someone who looked good in some light, in other, awful

    • Ça va says:

      The French have an expression that might apply here: jolie-laide. Defined as so ugly, she’s pretty.

      • chismosa says:

        I have heard that in terms of some men, how some men are so ugly or just weird-looking that it makes them HOT.

    • keida says:

      I think she has a weird plastic face. But then I think that about many RH

    • djprincessc says:

      I think she needs to gain some weight and dress more age appropriate. Cus when she does dress like that she looks so chic!

    • amalfi says:

      It depends on the prominence of her teeth at any given angle for me.

      • Ça va says:

        Ha! 🙂

        • Called A Princess... says:

          She look like a zombie to me. She looked much better ten years ago. She is under weight , which makes every bone, including teeth appear more prominent. I think she would look much better if she would just gain 15 pounds. She might look alive. Maybe? JMHO.

  21. Under My Wheels says:

    Heather 1. Lulu -3

  22. keida says:

    Hate Luann’s dress!

  23. AZGirl says:

    Oh crap Harry is in the house

  24. MamaZ says:

    I love Heather’s husband.

  25. austin1963 says:

    Who ever thought that Ramona and LuMan would be on the same team?

    I absolutely hate to defend LuMan because I think she’s a shameless opportunist, but Carole is being pretty hoity-toity about it all. Her friends are adults; I’m sure they could have handled the situation just fine and don’t need Carole to shield them from scary LuMan.

    • MamaZ says:

      LuAnn is so pushy though. She and Ramona had the same fight about Ramona’s favorite designer. I really think LuAnn is BROKE and hanging on by the skin of her teeth.

      • austin1963 says:

        Oh, I agree, MamaZ. I just don’t find Carole’s behavior and attitude to be much better.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I agree…I dont like being Team Luann but carole is being a total snob about the whole thing. She should have just said ‘Luann you are a pain in the ass”

      • NJBev says:

        I have to say, I would be pissed off if Luann went to
        a friend of mine behind my back………………
        if only because Luann thinks she doesn’t have
        to follow the etiquette rules she dictates.

        • LavaLady says:

          I get the impression she was just using Carole to get to the designers. Notice how LuAnn called them her friends.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Just because LuLu is a slippery snake does not mean that Carole needs to expose a leg to be bitten. I believe that LuLu has a bad reputation in NYC beyond the show. Carole simply was not going to let LuLu get away with business as usual. The stink eye really started with the drive by, early in the season, over Ramona’s alleged blackmail threat, regarding LuLu’s lack of mothering skills. I think Carole found it dramatic and passive aggressive for LuLu to try to influence the new cast members in this manner. IMO.

  26. LavaLady says:

    Sonja’s right, Aviva talks about Harry as much as everyone

  27. Kat from Ohio says:

    i’m so excited that it’s Ru Paul in the club house tonight. I really love him! What a beautiful person–in and out of drag, it doesn’t matter. Perfect 10 as a man or a woman, which is no easy feat. And he’s so honest and witty.

  28. AZGirl says:

    Nice try PT. You need to sharpen your debate skills because Sonja, Ramona and Lulu have been on the couch a few years.

  29. Eastbayca says:

    Aviva is dictating what will and not be discussed….the woman has control issues, she was losing it on Harry.

  30. NJBev says:

    Sonja seeming somewhat bitchy tonight, no?
    I wonder what gives with her?

  31. WindyCityWondering says:

    Aviva knows what everyone else is thinking and feeling – amazing talent with all those phobias and such…..

  32. Eastbayca says:

    Bloody hell, the leg makes a cameo!

  33. austin1963 says:

    Aviper supports women?

    This is funny.

  34. AZGirl says:

    Lulu cracking up just made me laugh

  35. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Oh no not the phobias…not being insensitive but this has been done to death….

  36. Eastbayca says:

    Aviva says flying and heights…..Sonja and Lulu exchange a look and Lulu starts laughing.

  37. AZGirl says:

    leg story AGAIN!!!

  38. Lady Chatterley says:

    Wait – what?? Aviva lost a leg???

  39. Orson says:

    Yes, she was trapped in a machine when she was 6. Yadda yadda.

  40. AZGirl says:


  41. Nancy says:

    Get over yourself!

  42. AZGirl says:

    Enough…go see a shrink. I am getting some wine.

  43. WindyCityWondering says:

    Aviva in phobia mode is like Jac in her crying mode. Boring!

  44. MamaZ says:

    Didn’t change my opinion.

  45. Orson says:

    She doesn’t want to bore people with her problems and phobias. They don’t define her. Yet she’ll let you know about them at length at the drop of a hat.

  46. austin1963 says:

    OMG, here we go with the leg again. . .

  47. MamaZ says:

    I love ponty shoes.

  48. austin1963 says:

    She never discusses it with anybody? She lives in an alternate reality, I swear.

  49. MamaZ says:

    Heather has gone from my least favorite to my favorite NY Housewife.

    • MamaZ says:

      Me too. She seems, dare I say it, normal and reasonable! But I’m not going to start saying Holla.

  50. NJBev says:

    Is Sonja being kinda snotty, or am I imagining it?

    • NJBev says:

      sorry-double post. 😉

      • Sus says:

        I think she’s probably watched everything including the creepy pirate episodes. That can’t be comfortable. Also watching Mr Morgan’s painting coming down and going away without any kind of defacing would depress me too.

    • MamaZ says:

      A little. She shouldn’t have butted in when Ramona and Heather were talking. They are at a good place, maybe Sonja isn’t happy about that?

  51. Orson says:

    Luann doesn’t want to talk about it. Because she might not come across very well.

    • amalfi says:

      She was wrong and Ramona told her to back off or she’d spill, so she would be stupid to rehash it when she doesn’t have a leg to stand on — unless Aviva lends her a spare.

  52. Nancy says:

    Poor Lulu.

  53. WindyCityWondering says:

    Why is SonJa wearing a blouse instead of a dress?

  54. LavaLady says:

    Aviva looks tired.

  55. austin1963 says:

    I am not a Heather fan. Not particularly, anyway.

  56. AZGirl says:

    Heather get’s it.

  57. MamaZ says:

    DJPrincessc – Just saw your reply upthread re Heather’s husband. I think he’s adorable! Cutest husband on any Housewife show. And I love the way he tried to talk to Aviva about Ramona. He’s hot and smart!

  58. Nancy says:

    Is anyone having problems refreshing the page? It’s not showing up as ususal on the top right.

  59. Nancy says:

    OMG no wonder Andy drinks!

  60. AZGirl says:

    That commercial clip was weird

  61. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I typed the word Co*ktail in a post…is co*ktail a curse word??…This curse filter is jacking me up. I never realized I used so many BAD WORDS!!! Time to clean up my act!!!

  62. Orson says:

    I guess the cussing filter is still on.

  63. MamaZ says:

    Aviva, Aviva, Aviva!

  64. Nancy says:

    I bet Lulu is getting nervous right now.

  65. amalfi says:

    Aviva is really getting it tonight.

    • MamaZ says:

      I did like the apology she just gave.

      • mrs. peabody says:

        I would have liked it if she had shut her mouth while the season was showing but since she didn’t I don’t find the apology sincere. If she were really sorry she would have kept her mouth shut instead of continuing to trash them.

  66. Eastbayca says:

    Sonja is right Adiva is not really sorry. Adiva still makes ugly remakes on twitter

  67. amalfi says:

    Aviva, Ramona was your friend… until you went cuckoo kelly on her for missing your charity event. You also missed hers for a lame excuse (it’s on the 90th floor when your 2nd home in Miami is in the stratosphere… good try) yet you went apesh*t on her.

    Who would actually want to be your friend?

  68. LavaLady says:

    Go Heather

  69. Maryla says:

    Here goes Aviva with the banner. Sonja was too busy having sex to paint that darned “Welcome Aviva banner.”

  70. amalfi says:

    Reid is hateful.

  71. austin1963 says:

    Aviper is full of crap. End of story.

  72. Nancy says:

    What did Ramona do to Aviva?

    • MamaZ says:

      Weren’t you watching? She didn’t hang an effing banner! LOL

    • Ça va says:

      She has the gall to exist! That is enuff for ADD!

    • amalfi says:

      Missed her charity event because she was having some kind of rash issue on her face, and her loopy partner in crime Sonja had the audacity to have a dying dog.

      Her children with no legs were more important (and in reality really are – poor kids) but what Aviva really meant is that SHE is more important and they didn’t treat her as her daddy’s princess should be treated.

  73. NJBev says:

    Did Ramona just say, pretty much, that she is
    done (ie-filming) with Adiva??

  74. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Does Aviva hear herself….the same crap over and over….and Im not talking about the leg. Its the damn plane!!! I hope she never says the word plane again!!!!

  75. cusi77 says:

    Aviva regreted her behavior ONCE she got the reaction from the viewers, Wow! Well said Ramona! I love you!

  76. Orson says:

    Okay, tonight was Aviva night. I hope next week is Luann night.

  77. austin1963 says:

    You can totally tell Aviper is not really sorry because when Heather and Carole make the point that the Aviper situation was very dark, she looks at them like she doesn’t know what they’re talking about.

    I’d like to know why Heather, who speaks up (by her own statement), did not speak up when Aviper was on the attack at St. Bart’s and say, “Hey, this was said in good fun – nothing more”.

    • MamaZ says:

      She may have they film a lot we don’t see. And she did try to talk to aviva several times about letting it go.

      • Austin says:

        Yeah, I still think she had *plenty* of filming opportunities to get her side of things out. While she did get tired of hearing Aviper talk about it and tried to shut it down from that perspective, she never defended the other women or offered up the “real story”.

        • Austin says:

          BTW, I have no idea why sometimes my screenname comes up as Austin1963 and other times just as Austin. I’m only registered with one email address. . .

  78. AZGirl says:

    The reality is that Reid probably wishes he was ANYWHERE other than St. Barts and I believe Aviva is displacing her anger to Ramona and Sonja for his displeasure on being on this trip.

  79. Mrspepper says:

    Doesn’t she mean “profoundly” sorry, rather than “profusely” sorry. Come ‘on, Vassar.

  80. xhippiechick says:

    I cannot get over how badly Aviva is coming off on camera, it’s like she’s dressed as a sparkly ghost for halloween…anyone that pale with white blonde hair should avoid pale cream sparkles as a dress…use some color, even lipstick would have helped!

  81. Eastbayca says:

    Love Ramona….”Whatever Aviva…get a new therapist”

  82. Nancy says:

    FINALY Lulu comes clean. I’m shocked.

  83. amalfi says:

    I never get why only RHONY reunions are always on early and on twice. Is it because of the time zone?

    • Orson says:

      Yes. There’s usually a broadcast for ET/CT and a later broadcast for MT/PT. Not just Bravo, broadcast networks started it.

  84. Orson says:

    Hey, at least Lulu is wearing something with a strap on both sides. I wonder who she managed to convince to loan it to her to wear.

  85. delighted says:

    I think this was the best reunion ever for NY…

  86. amalfi says:

    The scalping and whooting were stupid of Luann. The superiority and constant correction (and she was wrong by the way – “American Indian” is fine again keep up Carole) by the Princess is ridiculous.

    Luann… still a dumb@ss though.

  87. delighted says:

    loved Carol’s commenting that Life and Style is not Vogue…I swoon before her…LuAnn is a nut job.

  88. amalfi says:

    I don’t love Lulu at all, but I am kind of fascinated how Sonja and Ramona aren’t leaving her out to dry. Sonja doesnt like Carol. Obvious.

  89. amalfi says:

    I am still unclear on the Heather Luann kerfluffle. Though I do get that Luann is a piece of work, but other than why I don’t like her, why specifically does Heather not like her anymore? She seems to be on the new girl team. Which is cool too.

    • MamaZ says:

      I think it has a lot to do with Luann cheating on Jacques. Heather mentioned in one of her blogs that she really likes Jaques. My guess is that Heather has a solid, traditional marriage and is morally offended by LuAnn’s casual promiscuity.
      Also I think Heather and Carole have formed a genuine friendship. and Carole is not a fan of The Countess.

      • amalfi says:

        Ok – that makes perfect sense.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I also think that filming with LuLu, Soja and Ramona was a bit of a nightmare. The newbies got kick around a bit by the veterans. I am pretty sure that vets are now behaving like superstars and keep reminding the newbies who is in charge and the newbies have decided to play their own game. JMHO.

  90. delighted says:

    and wasn’t it nice not to see JZ on the couch, pulling down her dress while figuring out what nasty thing to say?

  91. MamaZ says:

    Yes! That must be why I was able to enjoy it without gritting my teeth.

  92. WindyCityWondering says:

    I think I would like Carole’s dress the best if she wore some foundation. And Andy looks like an undertaker!

  93. MamaZ says:

    My laptop is acting up so I guess it’s time to shut down. This was much more fun and relaxing than that other show which I am not watching or even talking about! I will check in tomorrow. Goodnight all!

    Ramona and LuAnn are frenemies

  96. cityside54 says:

    I’ve read all the comments, now I get to watch the Reunion and figure out what you guys said!!


  97. Kat from Ohio says:

    wow holy shit! i honestly think they’re going to bring her back. this is the “warm up” to see how viewers react before they ink up the contract. based on the shit i’ve seen on New Jersey and to an extent Beverly Hills, there are worse things in the Real Housewives Franchise than seeing Jill on my TV again. based on the promo, i agree with the things she said. Andy DID side with Bethenny. We all did. The difference is, we don’t have a professional relationship with wives.

    • Sus says:

      Kat, I love you but if I can’t sleep tonight because I’m thinking about your comment, I’ll be looking for you tomorrow. Those are nightmare words above !

      • Kat from Ohio says:

        hahaha oh i know! but i just don’t think they’d have her back, well over a year since the firing if they weren’t plotting something with her.

    • California35 says:

      No!! No!! No!!! I hope not.

  98. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Holy Crap….i can not believe JZ actually had to ask Andy why she was fired!!!!

  99. looneylucy says:

    Did anyone else get sick to their stomach when Aviva was lamenting how her phobias were so debilitating and was almost in tears because she couldn’t take her daughter to Paris? Hell, I’d like to throw her Paris fund into my kids’ college fund to help them out, or even have a break in our own household bills for a month or so. I’ve lost any sympathy I ever had for the woman. Walk in some of our shoes for one day while we cut corners to pay health insurance and she’d forget about the friggin’ small plane phobia. Right now, I can’t afford to get on a large plane. That.made.me.sick!

    • cityside54 says:


    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      OMG-when she said that I thought to myself..how odd that this is what she is concerned about. Im wondering how the hell I’m going to pay for my kids braces and for them to go to college and things like this. Her big concern is that she will never take her daughter to Paris?? WTF does that even mean???

  100. TMarsh101 says:

    Coming out of re-lurkdome just to say I think New York might be my new fave in the series. Why? Because after the casinos I’ve been reading caused by Jersey on the blog, it’s refreshing to see everyone get along for a change. Or, at least have rational, dissenting comments if one disagrees. On the West Coast, so haven’t seen the reunion yet, but can’t wait. I hope everyone has been doing well.

    • looneylucy says:

      Hi TMarsh. Overall, I thought it was very civil. At least they allowed one another to speak. Sonja has a habit of talking over Ramona, and the world has to stop while Aviva speaks. But other than that, it was great! EF Hutton has nothing on Aviva! Are you even old enough to remember the EF Hutton commercial?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I am. hahaha!!

        • looneylucy says:

          Ya know, I think Aviva did a disservice to this great nation by not being a practicing attorney. I think she would make F. Lee Bailey shake in his proverbial boots. What a force she is. And a negative one at that.

      • TMarsh101 says:

        I recognize the name EF Hutton, but don’t recall the commercials…maybe I should youtube this little gem?

        • looneylucy says:

          Nah, TMarsh. The commercial’s by-line was “when EF Hutton speaks, everyone listens”. And the commercial ran every day, 365 days a year. You didn’t miss nuthin!

          • lovemamaearth says:

            And if you want someone to listen, Whisper.

            I read the comments about Aviva and I think she finally got how hurtful she was after getting some of the feedback she got from everyone. Should it have taken that long? No but some of my lessons took awhile too. I hope Ramona isn’t on next season. I don’t see how she can bring anything new or fresh to the next season. And she had too much filler imo.

            • Lady Chatterley says:

              Well, the whole season felt like filler – like they just threw something together to test out how the new girls would play to the viewing audience.

    • California35 says:

      Welcome 🙂

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Welcome back.

  101. Nancy says:

    Night night ladies.

  102. amalfi says:

    Luann… luann luann luann.


    finally feeling slightly sorry for her.

    • amalfi says:

      Everyone else (except Sonja) has it much better than she does.

      Oh poor former-rich lady probz.

  103. California35 says:

    Hi, how was it? I still have a few minutes before it comes here.

  104. mrs. peabody says:

    Wow, much better this year than last year and most definitly better than NJ. Glad Andy finally did something and actually called out Aviva. She hasn’t changed in my opinion, still a one track mind.

  105. lovemamaearth says:

    I think Aviva looked great. She should have had her roots touched up. So should have Lu. I don’t see any satin on Ramona. Sonja preaching at Aviva about Harry was uncalled for imo. I like Carole’s snarkiness and Lu not liking the THs is stupid bec she snakes errr… I mean snarkes just as much as all of them put together. Heather makes some great points. I think they all looked great with Ramona being the least pretty dress. Says I sitting here dressing tee shirt and jeans.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      haha good point, love mama – me in blue yoga pants and old faded walmart shirt

      • lovemamaearth says:

        I like the song you sang this morning… (I think it was you.) You think this song is about you…. ‘ ‘ • ♫♫♫*♥*♫♫♫• * ‘ ” ‘ • ♫♫♫*♥*♫♫♫• * ‘ ‘

        • LaineyLainey says:

          LOL, Lovemamaearth – – you know my singing sent someone back into lurkerdom? I had no idea my singing was going to cause a casino.

  106. princesspindy says:

    MANY Phobias!!

  107. BB says:

    Hey guys, I just turned in my reunion blog to NMD and came over to look at the chat. I always like to see if I was thinking what you guys were thinking or picked up on some of the same things It’s kind of scary that I always turn the blog in before I read your comments and some of my same thoughts are repeated here. I guess you’ll find out tomorrow (or later this morning) if I agreed with everything y’all said. Lol.. Now I’m going to get some shut-eye.

  108. boston02127 says:

    Go to college, they say….it will be exciting…..you’ll be happy you did it.

    Did someone forget to tell me that I’d have enough homework for five people? I missed the NY reunion tonight & it’s after 3 a.m.

    G/N 😦

    • BB says:

      Boston. And this too shall pass. Just read my blog when you get the chance. I pretty much covers everything.

    • Noelle says:

      Dear Sweet, SMART, Boston,
      What you’re doing now is and will be worth it for yourself and your future.
      College really does blow @(most..shh..)times, more so than not. But so WELL worth it!
      I hate cliches; it’s true though, “It’s hard to see the forest for the trees.” (In your position,
      all I could say in my head was “Bite Me.”)
      Hang in there, oh and here’s another one: Nothing worth fighting for ever comes Easy!
      (ps: I’d still like to smack the sh!t out of whoever came up with that gem!! ;D )
      You’re a fabulous, beautiful, bright, peanut!!
      Eat your heart out Lauren Manzo!!
      You read it here FIRST!!

      Bless you Boston.

    • butterisafruit says:

      Don’t forget Boston, you’re a full time student in a highly rated university,
      you keep a home and have a job. You have a lot on your shoulders.

      Bravo will be doing marathons with women and over grown children
      who depend on ex husbands, and Mom and Dad
      for their worth.
      You’ll be secure and independent because you know
      what really IS important.

    • amalfi says:

      Your IQ goes up a point for every reunion you miss (higher with Jersey), so there’s that.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hang in there, baby girl!!!

  109. Noelle says:

    Just a PSA:
    Get your FLU shots!! ASAP!
    We got ours in late August; however it now looks like 2 are in the midst of it.(Tarps and buckets are now in a communal(sp) area, as well as Little Green Machine ; ) )
    So much for my PSA!!! HAHA

  110. amalfi says:

    Q: Why is Carol on RHONY (besides that she and Andy are personal friends)?
    Short Answer. To sell books. To make money

    Long Answer: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/06/04/carole-radziwill-on-the-real-housewives-kennedys-and-more.html

    For one thing, Radziwill is a writer currently finishing up a roman à clef called The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating. And the platform provided by Bravo is a pretty good one. “George Plimpton once said he would sit in a department-store window if he thought it would sell a book,” said Radziwill, who on Friday was wearing a pair of fitted jeans and a cream-colored cashmere cardigan that ended just before the midriff, showing off her seemingly perfect abs. “And I thought this is better than sitting in a window.”

    For another, she’s hardly swimming in money—a fact that everyone continues to be amazed about vis-à-vis the extended Kennedys and the Bouviers/Radziwills, but that is nevertheless the reality. “There’s this idea everyone’s wealthy and living these grand lives. The rumors of Radziwill fortune have been vastly overstated. I read somewhere on the Internet that I have $50 million, and I think what they meant was 50 million pesos.”
