Is it true there something revealed about Dennis in the premiere that the family is pissed about?
|by Anonymous||reply 8||03/05/2019|
r8 B tried to both suppress what went down with Dennis and yet played up The Widow Shields. I think the "true" widow got pissed at Bethenney's posturing and shut her down. Just as well, because TWS could have faced some problems for very likely having "party favors" of her own. I don't blame Jason for wanting her to get drug tested, I would, if I was in his situation, though they are both assholes.

Apparently, apart from her friend LuAnn none of "the girls" liked Barbara. Bethenny in particular was adamant that Barbara not be part of the show. I wonder if that has anything to do with LuAnn's animosity toward her.
Re Dennis Shields' wife: they had been separated for some time, although they were still legally married when he died. I thought it was ridiculous for her (and Bethenny too) to assume the grieving widow role to the extent she did.

Dennis had been previously accused of rape? I hadn't heard that before.
I'm with Jason on it being incredibly inappropriate for Bryn to travel with Dennis alone, rape accusations or not. I recall Dennis would also babysit Bryn on his own. Isn't that what the nannies are for? Knowing what we do about Dennis' drug use, it is a very bad look that Bethenny allowed/encouraged this.

r39, the article didn't say the rapist ex boyfriend was Dennis. There may have been another man in her life.
r46, I think I read somewhere that Jill and Bethenny filmed a "moment" together in which they commiserated over their dead loved ones.
r13, I know I read somewhere that Bethenny actively opposed Barbara, but it may have been after early filming because they did film together around the time of B's product launch for her skinny jeans. So yeah, something must have happened. I am guessing that Barbara is even more crass and vulgar than LuAnn and Ramona, but I guess we'll see. LuAnn continues to tout Barbara (and Aviva and Kelly) on social media, so clearly she didn't have a problem.

And I'm guessing that Bethenny's dislike of/opposition to Barbara is what caused the falling out with Luann.
Luann has made it clear that Barbara is her BFF, and to have Bethenny disrespect that by not supporting Barbara for the show would not sit well with Luann. Disloyal to the core herself, she expects absolute loyalty from everybody else.

It's likely more to do with the fact that Bethenny is likely jealous that Luann is having a moderate amount of success at the Cabaret thing.

I kinda liked Barbara and I love that she's coming onto the show with a grudge against RaMOANa who looks fabulous btw. The scene of Ramona in the pool with her hunky swim instructor was a little uncomfortable because she was throwing out all of these sexual innuendos and he, wisely, wasn't responding because he knows if he did he would be labeled a predator. Sonja's apartment is already a hot mess. Tinsley is growing on me. She's relatively harmless and pretty much gets along with everybody. The highlight of the episode was Dorinda bringing her TOM AND LU tote over to Ramona's.

Agree r77 Ramona has great energy and she looks fucking great, except for those tits. She should bring them down a couple of notches.
I also think Sonja brings it, and damn she looks good as well. That dreary apartment she is in now must have been hard, but she is playing it off fairly well. She is shameless in a really fun way. Duct tape and towels!
Lu used to look fairly ageless, no longer. She's rough. Pretty sure that a 3 time rehab slot is in the works.

And I disagree about Sonja, she has weird work done, long ratty hair extensions in ep 1, that looked cheap and greasy, and the work she has done made her eyes look smaller, and beady. Her nose looked so thinned out. I just didnt think she looked that great.

|by Anonymous||reply 95||03/07/2019|
I don't know about "dealer," r95, but I think part of the reason Bethenny's grieving is so confused is because their relationship seems to have been all over the place. They weren't together when he died, but she was wearing his engagement ring and the daughter called Bethenny to tell her about the news. He was separated from his wife, but she stepped into the Grieving Widow role instantly and proceeded to shut Bethenny down.
The reason Ramona looks terrible (except for her legs, which are very good) is that she's so short-waisted that she looks thick in the middle at any weight, and her boobs look bad because there's no definition between them and her rib cage. It's just an unfortunate body type.
Agree with whoever said that LuAnn looks rough. She must still be drinking. And I love the way she glossed over the lawsuit with the kids, completely ignoring that the reason for it wasn't that they loved the Hamptons house, but that she had a legally binding commitment to create a trust for them from the proceeds of their former house and she hadn't done it. Selling the current house to cover the cost of the house in Hunter would have left them with nothing. She made it sound like they were bullying her to get their way.

R106 Let’s check back at the end of the season. I bet the season average of RHONJ will be higher than RHONY. I’m not bitter I’m just not understanding why a new housewife other than bawdy Barbara K wasn’t added to the cast. Bring back someone that will challenge these women like Aviva or Heather. With Carole gone they could have also 86’d Tinsley and had a nice chunk of change to hire someone fabulous. Even on WWHL last night Dorinda didn’t oversell the season, she simply said it was a “different kind” of season. Whatever that means.

I'm guessing that what Dorinda means is that there are no highs or lows--they're all uniformly miserable and randomly picking fights with each other.
I don't care how flat it is, I'd never want Aviva or Kelly back, and those are the two who are lobbying hardest to get in. Wouldn't want Heather, either--she's coarse and crass in exactly the way Jill is, and I can't imagine the two of them in the same season.

Ramona's a mess. She is very short-waisted so even if her weight is right she looks heavy around the middle; there's nothing between her ribcage and her ass. And the older she gets, the more compressed she'll get. It's really time for her to get the boobs seriously reduced and start covering herself up more.
That apartment probably does belong to Sonja's daughter (who looks like an unattractive version of mommy). My guess is that whatever alimony/child support she had from Morgan ended when the daughter turned 18. That's not uncommon. It's probably also when Morgan told her to vacate the house, since she no longer has to make a home for the kid. Also not uncommon. Sonja will probably live in that tiny pink apartment while the daughter's away at college and will have to stay with friends when the kid's home on breaks.

I think Sonja and the Tinz are fascinating characters R115. Their respective airs in response to their faded social status may not be the most compelling to watch, but they are definitely intriguing and add some color to the cast. Forced storylines from Them are tedious, but they add to the ensemble. Sonja’s Grey Gadens? Come on. The Tinz is especially grasping— even tho she’s still rich af, but holding on to the former aughts socialite thing is insane. Like another poster said, they add Vulnerability. Other franchises are full of strivers, but they are dull as dishwater, robotic, no pathos. RHNYC is the only one worth watching.

R183 they're not fascinating. Their storylines are desperate, pathetic, boring and beyond contrived. There are hundreds of aging socialites who try to relive their glory days. I'm sure there are many others in NYC that producers could replace those 2 with.
If Tinsley doesn't get married or pregnant by the reunion, producers should fire her ASAP
There is no saving grace about Sonja. She's had her run but I know she'll stay around because producers are scared to shake the cast up too much.

R75 I'm no fan of Bethenny, but FWIW she is highly allergic to a specific substance in white fish, but not to shellfish or sushi or sashimi.
It is possible to be allergic to some but not all types of fish or even shellfish within each group of seafood. For example, there are those who can eat crab but not lobster, while others can eat salmon but not cod. Some people are highly allergic to shellfish only but can eat every other type of seafood/fish with no problem. B's fish allergy is specifically white fish, not pink salmon, shellfish or sushi. Strange but true.
At least she's not allergic to Ramona's guacamola.

Bethenny has her share of demons too.
The Countess may be making progress but she is so deeply insecure that she will never come down to earth.
Ramoner has got a huge gut and with her big tits - her body has jumped the shark.
Sonja provides some comic relief - espec now that she seems to have gotten a break from her money problems

A fish allergy is not exactly the same as a seafood allergy. Seafood includes fish (like tuna or cod) and shellfish (like lobster or clams). ... So shellfish will only cause an allergic reaction in someone with a fish allergy if that person also has a shellfish allergy.

But her actual personality is spastic and frantic and a little shrill. It’s the opposite of what I pictured. Why did they break up? Why did she not have a kid with him while she had the chance?

I wish producers had chosen Amanda over Kristen 5 years ago. Kristen won out though due to her friendships with Brandi Glanville and Heather. That's why Heather was so aggressive towards Amanda and acting like she was a random stranger in the scenes. Heather knew damn well producers had hired Amanda and she was competing for the last main spot vs. her friend Kristen. Kristen ended up being a bore but producers dropped Amanda because the other ladies kinda iced her out.
I was curious what Amanda is up to these days and looking at her instagram, she's still a successful celebrity stylist who has worked with big names over the years. She's currently styling some of the people who appear on MSNBC and CNN.
The worst producer treatment on RHONY of course was Jennifer Gilbert a while back. She was going to be a main cast member but then got cut out by producers to a friend role who appeared in just a few episodes. To be fair she was boring though.
It makes me wonder how many other potential cast members either got edited down or out completely. There have been ladies in other cities who got completely edited out halfway through the season and then the producers/other cast members acted like they never filmed.

There is an Asian woman Christine Chiu married to a very prominent plastic surgeon that has tested over a couple of seasons for RHOBH but she’s never even made it to friend status.

Amanda and Kristen were in the same position but Heather kept acting like Amanda didn't belong there (because she wanted Kristen to get the main cast member spot).

If Lulu doesn't stop saying "after what I've been through" I will drive to New York and push her off her penthouse balcony. As one of the HWs pointed out tonight, she did this to herself. I don't think you can claim victim status in those circumstances.
Judging from the conversation among Luann, Bethenny, Ann and Barbara, it sounds like Luann was seriously out of control when they did the intervention. And I love the way she sort of elides over the reason her children sued to enjoin the sale of the house. She makes it sound like they just didn't want to lose the nice house and so stood in the way of her happiness in a new $6 million place in Hunter or wherever. She's a piece of work.

I know I've read, I think on Luann's SM, that she and Bethenny were on the outs for most of the season. Which would leave Barbara hanging out there all alone.
I have a feeling that over time Bethenny got more and more exasperated with Luann's self-absorption and constant bragging about her cabaret stardom.
All that talk last night about Luann trying to get $6 million for a new house made me wonder if she might be bipolar. Bipolarity and alcohol are an incendiary combination. She didn't stay in rehab long enough for a psych evaluation, either time.

Luann's victim act has been tired for a long, long time. I swear if she says "...after what I've been through" one more time I will jump through the tv screen and throttle her. Starting at least with Tom, everything this woman has been through has been of her own making.
Btw, r381, Lu's kids were never suing her for money damages; they were suing to enjoin the sale of the Hamptons house, because her deal with the Count encumbered the property: if she sold, she had to create a trust for the kids with half the proceeds. She was planning to sell and use every cent to purchase some gigantic piece of property up in Sullivan County, and the kids and their father had no other recourse to protect their rights. Lu makes it sound like the kids were just attached to the house and pitched a fit. Anyway, she apparently went nuts and was going to have that house by hook or by crook--including hitting up B and the boyfriend for $6 mil. I think she must be bipolar. That's really manic behavior.

Over the years, Bethenny has slowly become everything she used to snark on. That move she pulled on Sonja a few seasons ago, where she called her to her office and berated her in front of her bored interns, then dismissed her, was the exact thing Kelly did to her in the "I'm up here, you're down here" conversation. It was a power play, and Bethenny was a complete bully to Sonja in front of an audience of staff. First season Bethenny never would have done that to someone.

Bethenny has let enough comments about Dennis and their relationship slip that it seems clear to me that it was really flawed, and that she wasn't at all confident that it could or should be permanent. I don't think it was necesarily about drugs, but more about commitment issues. At one point she was quoted as saying that the only way she got free of the relationship was that he died. I kind of get this--we've all been with someone that we couldn't bring ourselves to leave completely. Btw, she mentioned the engagement ring last season in Colombia so it's not a new story.
Ramona's nastiness has finally gone over the top, to say nothing of Luann's sense of entitlement and Dorinda's rage and self-absorption (all those tears in her scene with Bethenny were for herself and Richard--there was no real empathy there).

There were probably 100 other girls that got overlooked because somebody made a phone call and said I’ve got this great gal that’s my friends niece and she’s single, she lives downtown and she’s very artsy!!

But that is classic Luann, r536.
Luann is crafty in the way that people with personality disorders can be. And like them, she lies quite cheerfully even when the facts are known to everyone--like her story about selling the Hamptons house.
|by Anonymous||reply 537||03/22/2019|
This has probably been covered before but Luann has always been a terrible mum. In early seasons we saw her young son miserable because she was going out again and was never around, her pretending to be an interested mother for the cameras when she clearly had no clue about caring for her kids, when the actual caring was done by Rosie who had an actual bond with the children who just looked generally embarrassed by Luann's performance. This is, I'm sure normal for children of rich narcissists but you have to feel sorry for them. She also seems to be someone with no self awareness or ability to be embarrassed by her own actions. Complaining that the woman at the cancer benefit in season 2 didn't refer to her as a countess on stage when she had but Luann was too busy talking to hear, then taking the mike to tell everyone to listen and stop talking (because she was being 'honoured'), then sitting down and immediately starting to talk over them again was just embarrassing. Watching those episodes I feel sure that she felt no embarrassment though. I don't know how people can have so little self-awareness, apart from having a personality disorder that is.
She clearly lies so, even though I dislike Ramona, I actually believe her in this instance. Ramona is stupid and rude and entitled and narcissistic but we don't know her to lie like Luann and Bethenny do, nor is she nasty and manipulative like they are. So I'm on the messier 'blonde' team, not because they're good people but the others are hypocritical liars who for some reason think they're better than the others.
|by Anonymous||reply 538||03/22/2019|
Also, for the most part Barbara seems like a decent, honest person and loyal who mistakenly wondered onto a Housewives set by mistake, since her reactions to events are just confusingly normal. I think she can't last because, if anything, she is too decent for them.

Actually, correction, Ramona is definitely nasty, I mean I don't want to sound like I'm claiming she's a decent person or anything. It's just that her nastiness seems to come from stupidity and entitlement rather than the strange manipulativeness of Luann and Bethenny, whose object a lot of the time seems to be to make themselves feel good just by making other people feel bad. There is a different quality to their nastiness which isn't helped, as I said, by their hypocrisy in pretending that they are somehow better than the others, which is a joke.
Luann trying to pretend she thinks Dorinda (who is admittedly a truly terrible drunk) is addicted to alcohol and needs and intervention was ludicrous, and Barbara shut that down immediately. What a nasty person; I could see the look of confusion on Barbara's face when Luann said it because it was so out of left field.

I think the best decision the producers ever made was demoting Luann that season. She scratched and clawed her way back to that apple and provided some delicious drama all the way along (not caring in the slightest how any of the "storylines" she created for herself might ruin her life or the lives of her children).

Funnily enough I had a friend like that in the past. Like Bethenny she would often talk about how tough her childhood was and encourage people to feel sorry for her and like they were luckier than her in that department even when they had experienced objectively bad things themselves (her childhood was not as bad as Bethenny's was). But had also had money for a period of time as a child so had a strange mix of being spoiled for a time but also not having that great a childhood in other ways, although certainly not abusive. She also was entitled and seemed to believe she was better than other people, and had the same kind of brittle narcissism and intensity of Bethenny. I mean they're different in other ways but Bethenny definitely reminds me of her. We drifted apart because of her narcissism really and the entitlement - she used to make me feel like I owed her something or was beholden to her in some way all the time, and everything - good or bad - was usually about her. I could sympathise with Carole on that trip they took last year. When you stop caring you just stop caring, and these people do tend to cycle through friends,

I think Bethenny has probably been defensive most of her life. Not as much money, skeevy family, embarrassing childhood. When she and Jill were friends Jill and Bawby were very generous to her, but Jill often made a point of reminding Bethenny how much she and Bobby were doing for her. It's awful to have to feel grateful all the time, and it must have made Bethenny feel especially good when she made her fortune, largely on her own, but like a lot of people who grew up insecure, she probably still is. The air of confidence and entitlement is probably an act.

Bethenny is using Dennis's death for story and it's disgusting. They were not engaged. They were not even together when he died. He may have asked her to marry him at one point and she kept the ring but they were not engaged or a couple when he died. Her wearing that ring and telling everyone is to make her more sympathetic. That and her BStrong affiliation with Delivering Goods (the real charity). Bethenny affiliated with them.
