Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and New York – Let’s Chat by Veena
Last week Andy and Bethenny heaved a sigh of collective sigh of relief when the ratings for RHONY were decent. It was a big risk for both of them having Bethenny rejoin the show – and it looks as though it’s paying of – at least for now. During the premiere episode, Bethenny – our poor homeless rich girl – shared the spotlight with Ramona – the mean but jilted wife who has turned over a new leaf. Previews show the dynamic duo reuniting after all these years – and Bethenny telling Ramona she’s rather not hang out. That seems strange – considering Bethenny joined Ramona’s show – so I’ve got to assume it’s for ratings.
It looks like besties Ramona and Sonja will have a falling out this year. Last week Sonja performed the ultimate betrayal. She took Jill Zarin’s side in the feud between Ramona and Patti Stranger/Jill Zarin. It all started when Patti (answering a viewer’s question on WWHL) said that she was a party in the Hampton’s (with Jill) when Mario cheated. Ramona said it was untrue – Patti just said it to be relevant – like Jill always says things to be relevant. Jill and Patti shot back on twitter. Then on Patti’s podcast, Jill and Sonja both phoned in – and Sonja said she had heard a rumor that both Jill and Patti were at the Hampton’s party that night. Ouch.
It will be interesting to see the dynamics of the ladies this season. They were all trying their best to get their apple. Ramona and LuLu were supposed to be ‘friends’ – so the competition was probably fierce.
On the Beverly Hills side of things, we’ll be finished with the reunion tonight. Some people are hoping for closure. I think we’ll learn that the reason Kyle and Kim aren’t talking is the dog bite to Alexia – and Kim refusing to take any responsibility. The smoking gun is that Alexia entered Kim’s room. After reading the House of Hilton’s – I realize that I no longer care one whit what Kim Richards says or does. She was brought up to be selfish and mean – just like her older half sister Kathy. Kyle and Kim have another one (or two) half sisters from their dad. Maybe Kyle should hang out with them (if she doesn’t already) because hanging out with Kim is toxic.
Enjoy the evening – Let’s Chat!
