Note to self– don’t engage in a Twitter feud while drinking wine.

Sometimes right before I go to bed I will email myself listing the things I’m either worrying about or don’t want to forget for tomorrow.

Last night I was up late watching the Yankees BEAT THE INDIANS AND MOVE ON TO THE ALCS (!!!) and I wrote myself the following email: Read More »

Dorinda’s holiday sleepover comes to a close but can the ladies mend fences before returning to NYC?

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

In case you somehow blocked it out like I wish I could have, we rejoin the ladies at Dorinda’s ever so festive Berkshires holiday sleepover!

Bethenny has just walked in on Luann loudly (drunkenly?) wondering whether Bethenny is just intent on ruining all of her friends’ lives. First there was John, then Sonja, and now Luann.

I mean, fair point. B is getting a bit out of control with her rants, but I’m not sure how much is for “good TV” and how much is the fact that she needs to be medicated. Just a bit. Read More »

Airing Your Dirty Laundry: Real Housewives of New York Recap

Sonja is caught off guard by Bethenny’s harsh response to Sonja’s new brand of prosecco, Tipsy Girl.

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

It’s official.

The Countess has packed her bag(s) and moved into the fifth floor of Chateau Mor-ganne, pronounced in an entirely different way than Sonja usually says her last name of Morgan.

It’s secluded, plus there’s a bidet and a tiny fridge in case Luann wants to entertain. Which she most likely will…but what she really wants is to settle down with a nice man who owns a place in the city.

Also needing to settle down is Sonja’s bubbly and unrealistic view of her life. Yes, Sonja, you need to put the heat on in the winter. No, Sonja, Bethenny is not going to like you using the name “Tipsy Girl” for your prosecco. Even Luann can see that. Read More »

Birthday Bashing: Real Housewives of New York Recap

Bethenny and Jules try to repair their relationship, but will Jules give Bethenny a second chance?

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

Hopefully everyone has recovered from the World’s Worst Hamptons Hoedown.

No? Me neither.

But anyways. Bethenny is back in the city and packing for a trip. Or, packing for her daughter Brynn, rather.

Brynn has learned what is both Bethenny’s and my husband’s #1 Travel Rule…you always carry on. I swear to you, my husband even made me take a carry-on suitcase for our 10-day honeymoon.

P.S. Brynn’s bedroom is nicer than my room. I’d love to live there with the light-up “L.O.V.E.” on the wall. Seriously. I’ll rent it from her when she has her visitation weeks with Jason. Read More »

It’s always fun when someone’s drunk boyfriend accosts you on your birthday…right, Bethenny??

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

I guess this is why Bethenny hates her birthday. It seems to be the one day of the year when shit rains down on her.

We rejoin the ladies at Dorinda’s ill-fated lingerie party. It seems like everyone is back to “being cool,” as The Countess would say.

Dorinda is outside smoking a cigarette?! Jules takes a drag, too, and tells Dorinda she has her back. (Just not her lungs, I guess, if she’s supporting her smoking habit.)

Bethenny, Jules, Dorinda, and Carole actually do try on bras, which, if you recall, was the reason for the party. Jules and Carole argue over who is skinnier, and Jules offers that she is totally fine because she gets her period every 30 days.

“The fact that you’re even saying that is weird,” says Carole. Agreed. Read More »

Dorinda’s attempt to have a fun ladies’ night fails miserably.

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

It’s only one episode in and I’m already loving this season of Real Housewives of New York. Mainly because I’m almost 100% positive we will not hear the word “Munchausen’s.” 

Thank you, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for ending. Good riddance to a shitty season.

But back to the NYC ladies… Read More »

Season 8 starts off with a bang in the Big Apple…get the scoop!

The Real Housewives of New York City - Season 8

First off, let’s just acknowledge the fact that this is the same cast photo as last year, but with Heather and Kristen deleted and new Housewife Julianne Wainstein subbed in between Luann and Bethenny. Umm…

Anywho. 

I go back and forth between Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Real Housewives of New York as my two favorites but right now, as I sit here watching Bethenny, her new haircut, and Dorinda open the show, it’s clear to me–

I heart New York. Read More »

Bethenny meets up with the RHOBH ladies in the Hamptons. Will she play nice?

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills - Season 6

We rejoin the ladies at the Bella magazine party. (Must not be that great of a magazine, because Bethenny’s never heard of it. Ouch.)

The topic of marriage and divorce comes up and Lisa Vanderpump is only too eager to get the scoop on Eileen’s history with Vinny. According to Eileen, they only got together after she was separated from her husband.

Who cares? They’ve been together for 15 years now. Tell Vanderpump to pry elsewhere.  Read More »

Let me start by saying I HATE YOU BRAVO. 

Where do you get off switching the time of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion Part 2 to 8:00 when the show has aired at 9:00 all season long?

I totally missed it and am only getting a chance to watch it now. On a Saturday. Because I’m at the beach and I don’t have a DVR here. #thestruggleisreal

Thank you, Real Housewives of New York. I needed this– a break from my own reality as an actual “real housewife” to embark on a trip that is utterly nuts and crazy, just like the RHONY ladies themselves.

I mean, this is like Scary Island times ten. Replacing Kelly Bensimon in the role of Resident Delusional One is Sonja Morgan, and reprising her role as Sane Truth-Teller is Bethenny Frankel.

Hope y’all packed your Xanax and your favorite wine tumblers you can throw at a friend without breaking!

Well, we did it. We survived another trip with these wackadoos. Barely. But now that we are back in NYC, will things cool down?

NOT A CHANCE.

My husband and I fight fairly frequently. It’s always over something stupid and it always resolves itself rather quickly. I’m okay with this.

In fact, I find it odd when I encounter couples that say they “never fight” or are always posting sweet nothings about their husband on Facebook. (I do not identify with this phenomenon.)

So while our fights tend to blow over quickly, I’d still prefer to not have them. They stress me out, and that’s the kids’ job…not my husband’s. Read More »

It’s time for the first party of the season, everyone! Unless you count that “party” that Skinnygirl sponsored Bethenny threw last week for LuAnn where there were drinks in a hotel room and only one guest.

Here’s a question that’s been on my mind– why on earth would anyone buy this from Bethenny? Is she really in the position to give relationship advice? Although I guess one could learn what not to do in a relationship. No need to buy the book, though. Just watch Bethenny Getting Married for some tips!
