In Bethenny news, she sold her Hamptons home -- the one criticized by Ramona -- only to likely lose money after factoring in the other associated costs. Ramona ended up being right about never buying a home next to a highway after all.

"The ‘Real Housewives of New York’ to Bethenny Frankel: Good Riddance"

The Season 12 premiere of Bravo’s reality-TV juggernaut The Real Housewives of New York City launches Thursday with a sobering dose of, well, reality.

The first few minutes of the episode break the fourth wall in an unprecedented way, as each of the returning cast members discover and then react—with their signature cocktail of hysterics and wit—to the news that, days before production started on the season, star Bethenny Frankel decided to quit the show. More, she announced the move to the press without warning any of the girls.

Suffice it to say, the news hit the returning Housewives like a flying leg to the head.

“To me, that’s F-U,” Ramona Singer is seen saying in the sequence. A producer asks her to elaborate on what she thinks about it. She rolls her eyes with the force of the Earth spinning on its axis. “I don’t know why we even have to acknowledge. It’s so stupid.”

Dorinda Medley has a warmer reaction: “Why do I feel like crying a little bit?” Sonja Morgan is hurt: “I feel abandoned all over again. My daughter’s going to college and now I won’t have Bethenny. It’s a lot.”

But it’s Luann de Lesseps, whose showdown with a shaking, screaming, emotional Frankel provided the climax to the series’ previous season, who lands the clincher. “It’s really hard for me to say that I’ll miss her all that much,” the cabaret star says to the camera. “But as they say on Broadway, the show must go on. Without you.”

De Lesseps laughs when reminded of the line during a phone call to talk about the new season.

“Like I say in the show, I wasn’t that disappointed because, you know, I’ve gotten a lot of grief from her in the past,” she says from the Hamptons, where she’s self-isolating with her son and daughter. “As much as we’ve had good times, there’s been a lot of bad times. I was reminded that she hasn’t been supportive of me in a lot of ways.”

Plus, there’s the way everyone found out. “We felt kind of, you know, jilted and abandoned.”

Singer, who is waiting out the quarantine with her daughter and ex-husband, Mario, at his beach house in Boca Raton, felt particularly blindsided. “We found out through the press, which I thought was disrespectful to the cast.”

She initially balked at the producers’ suggestion that they talk about the behind-the-scenes drama on camera. Discussion of cast departures, contract renewals, and matters of production—things that acknowledge to viewers that, at the end of the day, this is a TV show—is typically discouraged, if not forbidden.

But after seeing a cut of the premiere episode, she’s come around to the decision. “I think we all realize it was a good thing because, you know what, she was a presence. It just shows that yes, she was part of us. And now she’s not.”

From her house in the Berkshires, Medley agrees. “It would have been weird if they didn’t do it,” she says.

Beyond shock, her initial reaction was shaded with concern for the series. Frankel was the franchise’s biggest name and, with her bulldozing wit and rodeo ability to lasso in plot, arguably the show’s driving force.

“It was scary,” Medley says. “She was an integral part of the show and I was worried. I didn’t know the new girl (new cast member Leah McSweeney), and I didn’t know how people were going to react to it. I think what it did is it really pushed all of us just that little bit more.”

“I thought it was a great way to emit my emotions, because I had strong feelings,” says Morgan, speaking from—and you can’t make this up—a wellness spa near Palm Springs, where she booked a juicing-and-colonics recharge months before the pandemic and is now, essentially, stuck. “I felt really separation anxiety when Bethenny left, so I was happy to have that moment to go behind the scenes and say, ‘What!? Oh my God!’”

by Anonymousreply 1404/03/2020

In a recent interview with Variety’s Kate Aurthur, Frankel explained that she left the show, in part, because it was no longer a platform to promote her businesses. She pulled the lever at the spur-of-the-moment during negotiations, she said. “It’s taken me longer to order a pasta dish than just to decide this.”

“It was really the paycheck, which was, you know, astronomical at that point,” she told Variety. “And so I was staying because of money. And I just thought to myself, a bartender, a high-class prostitute who’s making a lot of money, you gotta sometimes make a move, and just say, ‘Let me just do what feels right to me.’”

In February, upcoming streaming service HBO Max announced an eight-episode order of the unscripted series The Big Shot With Bethenny. But in recent weeks, Frankel has thrown herself into providing emergency assistance to those affected by the coronavirus crisis through her disaster relief initiative BStrong.

Her efforts with BStrong were frequently spotlighted on Real Housewives and, regardless of the state of their friendships, were always supported and spoken highly of by the other cast members.

While Frankel’s departure was largely met with a panicked reaction from the show’s fans about how it would affect the series, the returning cast members maintain that having someone who was such a commanding presence step away could only be a good thing.

“A lot of the time she was overwhelming and didn’t allow us to express ourselves in a way we could have,” Singer says. (In the opening of the premiere, she puts it this way: “Everyone will be freer in spirit. Sometimes with her I don’t know if she’s going to come purr at me or scratch my eyes out.”)

She credits a particular producer, Darren Ward, with seeing this as an opportunity, refusing to let Singer get away with discussing her life on camera in superficial terms, acting like a therapist and forcing her to dig into uncomfortable places. Case in point: one scene in the premiere in which Singer has a sobbing meltdown at a bar about being 60 and alone, wailing, “I want a man to hold me and be with me!”

“I can’t believe I did that,” she says. “I don’t think I could have exposed myself in that way if Bethenny was still filming. It’d still be a great show with her. But it’d be a different show.”

De Lesseps was also grateful for some noticeable “breathing room” this season. “She took up a lot of oxygen in the room, to be quite honest. I think it was always a lot about Bethenny.”

In her case, that means continuing to chronicle her journey with alcohol addiction and sobriety in the aftermath of her 2017 arrest for disorderly intoxication, resisting arrest, battery of an officer, and making threats against a public servant, and the ensuing stints in rehab.

The RHONY premiere Thursday shows de Lesseps leaving her final probation hearing. But fans of the show have already gasped with concern after a trailer for the season showed her taking a sip of vodka in a future episode.

Yes, she is allowing herself to drink again, de Lesseps says, though at the moment she’s not consuming alcohol while in self-isolation.

“I’ve decided that, you know what, I suffered long enough,” she says. “I felt like I could take drinking responsibly and at least give it a go. So you’re going to see me drink socially on the show.”

She’s taking her relationship day by day. A journey so personal is undoubtedly complicated by the fact that it’s being weathered in front of a camera crew...and the world.

“I decided not to pigeonhole myself into, like, ‘I’m not drinking.’ I decided not to label it,” she says. “To be judged because you have a glass of wine, it’s difficult. It's not easy walking that line.”

It’s a sentiment that echoes what Medley thinks is the reason that people keep tuning in. “We’re kind of brave, to put ourselves out there,” she says. Wiith New York City currently under lockdown, she jokes, “Now we’re gonna be probably the best entertainment in town.”

Boy, when Dorinda's all coked up and drunk, the white trash in her really comes out. She went after Tinsley like a middle school mean girl.

And this Leah thing just seems like trash dressed up in expensive clothes and facial procedures. She should fit right in.

[quote]No one's mentioning that HOT toyboy William??

Just curious, are you British? I thought Americans say "boy-toy" and British say "toy-boy." Anyway...

He is (former?) model, William "Billy/Will/Bill" McLarnon. He is now a real estate agent in NYC for Barbara Corcoran's company, The Corcoran Group. And the rumors of his big, beautiful cock are supposedly true. Last year, OMG Blog & others posted full-frontal nude pictures of him from a photo shoot he did when he was younger, but they were very quickly taken down and the post marked, "photos removed upon request." Sadly, they were removed before I saw them. He seems to have Google Alerts set for himself (hell, he'll probably see this post), since, you know, he's such an important, big-shot NYC real estate agent, now, and god forbid people see a male model nude. It seems he, somehow, had the pictures successfully scrubbed entirely from the internet. I have been unable to find them even on sites like LPSG and MaleGeneral and he is generally on those site's "Do Not Post" list, so the post is removed and, if it's a repeat violation, the poster banned if they post the pictures.

Well if this boring episode proved anything it’s that Dorinda is every bit as much gold digging trash as the rest of them. It’s rich of her to accuse Sonja and Tinsley of hanging on to their husbands when she does it more than anyone. And I’m not denying that Tinsley is a major gold digger as well but at least she went to the right schools and is in the same ballpark. Dorinda is guido trash who by some miracle married really well (cuz she ain’t anything to look at, either).

New York is trash too. Love her or hate her at least Bethenny is entertaining. Watching drunk coked out Dorinda, bug eyed Ramona or that idiot Luanne got tired years ago. Without Bethenny calling them all out of sucks.

Apparently Atlanta is absolute garbage as well with everyone trying to get Nene out. She’s the only one that makes me laugh, the rest of those boring bitches would be a snooze to watch.

Cocaine Cohen has allowed the wrong housewife’s to rise to the top and encourages too much cattiness and fighting instead of highlighting their wealth and showing exclusive parties etc of the rich.

The plot of every show:

Girls go out and:

1. Dorinda gets drunk and nasty

2. Sonja gets really drunk , loud, and over-sexed

3. Ramona looks to get laid

4. LuAnn: will she drink or won;t she? How judgmental will she be this week? How many times will she pull out the rehab sob story?

5. Tinsley will be lost and lead a life that has no meaning

6. Leah will be a non-factor, as all of the tag-ons have been ( except Dorinda).

Why bother to watch?

Does Sonja have a storyline this season? Or his her storylne just screaming things like, "I don't shave my vagina!"?

by Anonymousreply 11705/15/2020

Tinsley may be immature, but she was more mature in response to Dorinda than I would have been. If it was me, I would have gotten up from the table, walked over to Dorinda, and punched her squarely in the face.

I don't get the people on social media raving about the season acting like it's so funny and amazing

there does seem to be a big divide. People either love it or hate it

so far the ratings are rather low

I did enjoy LuAnn being judgmental about Leah's shoebox size apartment though that was more classic LuAnn

by Anonymousreply 12205/15/2020

This season is pretty boring. There are moments but its just not the same without Bethanny.

by Anonymousreply 12305/15/2020

Bethenny is great tv but I don't think the show should have to rely on her. The problem is the producers are relying on alcohol. Every episode more than 1 person gets drunk

In the last 5 years it used to be just sometimes Dorinda or sometimes Sonja. Then they started getting drunk at the same time. Then LuAnn started getting drunk on camera. Then they added Tinsley now they have Leah. Ramona was the original one who got tipsy in the early years and she seems to have dialed it back. The rest of them are all fucking alcoholics

I expect LuAnn to relapse at some point this year if she keeps having just 1 sip

and Leah is a moron for acting like it's weird that people would make a big deal of her or LuAnn drinking. You've both gotten treatment! You're addicts!

This is the worst season ever of NYC

fire Leah, Sonja and Tinsley. Bring back Jill, Aviva, Heather and Carole. That'd be a fun mix

or get a new woman who's not a goddamn drunk. We need someone married too

these women are too old and uncool to be that "sex and the city" vibe that the producers keep grasping at

by Anonymousreply 12405/15/2020

The Sex and the City angle worked when Bethenny was in the cast. Ramona,Sonja and Dorinda have old lady energy though no matter how youthful they try to seem.

I was bothered by Dorindas treatment of Tinsley. Tinsley is harmless and isn’t nasty like these other bitches. I’m not a fan of Tinsley but Dorinda is coming across like she’s punching down.

They should set next season at a Rehab clinic. Does Betty Ford have an east Coast branch.

by Anonymousreply 12505/15/2020

You make great points R124. Tinsley is a nice girl but her story line is coming to an end, especially now since she's engaged to Scott and is going to live the life of a boring midwestern wife. Actually I like Leah. She's rough around the edges but she brings a new vibe to the show. She seems like a REAL New Yorker. Keep Sonja around because she's the only real "housewife" of the group.

Its interesting who you think they should bring back. I think Aviva & Heather quit the show. Carole ran out of storyline. And Jill wasn't invited back because she wants too much attention & became annoying to producers on RH and other entertainment shows. She always wanted to be on TV even when she wasn't invited.

by Anonymousreply 12605/15/2020

The problem with NY is the women are single empty nesters with no jobs. They have literally nothing to do but sit around and drink all day. They need to bring in younger women with more going on in their lives. I would ditch everyone but Leah and Tinsley (just for the sake of continuity), let Leah suggest one friend, and then cast 3 other women with actual lives.

by Anonymousreply 12705/15/2020

I don't like the idea of Leah being the new focus of the show. She's not likable or charismatic IMO

by Anonymousreply 12805/15/2020

I think Tnsley should retire from the show, marry her guy, have babies, and liver her life out of the spotlight. She's too nice to keep up with those other manic bitches. Dorinda is really mean, her response to Tinsley at the corn maze farm was over the top.

by Anonymousreply 12905/15/2020

And I really did mean to say liver her life.

by Anonymousreply 13005/15/2020

I’ve liked dorinda up until this season but it’s really unpleasant watching her go after Tinsley. I never liked Tinsley but I feel so bad for her. Dorinda just screams and yells insulting her needlessly.

by Anonymousreply 13205/15/2020

R119 the only “issue” Dorinda has with Tinsley is .... story line. Couple of fake feuds, few too many double gin soda’s, at least two inaudible slurred speeches = an invitation to join the cast next season.

"Actually I like Leah. She's rough around the edges but she brings a new vibe to the show. She seems like a REAL New Yorker. "

She should start some controversy by openly voicing her Trump worship, but then we'd realize that all of the other women voted for him, because he is a New York society figure.

Leah wrote she didn't vote in 2016 because she thought Trump and Hillary were both bad.

She wrote a bit for The Federalist, that shitty outlet run by Meghan McCain's husband. She has problems with the feminist movement

Leah I think is someone who tries too hard to be an intellectual but she's really not

Maybe I'm reaching my limit with RHONY. This latest episode was nearly impossible to sit through. So much screaming and screeching and nonsense. The only one that made any sense was the quiet dark haired lady who said she was frightened of Dorinda. I think her name is Elsie?

by Anonymousreply 14505/18/2020

Elyse seems reasonable on the show but her past is filled with atrocious behavior too

-ex-husband pleaded guilty to conspiracy and securities fraud. He avoided jail by snitching on other people involved in big money insider trading

-sued the kids of her ex bf after he died over his estate

-sued by former housekeeper for firing her

This was the first episode in years where I had to fast forward through most of it. I don't care about Tinsley talking to Lurch cosplaying as the Big Lebowski because she has no real friends. I am sick of Dorinda thinking she has had the worst life because her husband died a decade ago.

I hope next season is a big cast shakeup. I get that these shows are better when the women have history but that also means that they are replaying the same fight over and over.

" Farther" indicates distance.

"Further" Versus "Farther" The quick and dirty tip is to use “farther” for physical distance and “further” for metaphorical, or figurative, distance. It's easy to remember because “farther” has the word “far” in it, and “far” obviously relates to physical distance.

Leah was in my graduating class in high school. She was voted ‘Biggest Trendsetter’ for senior superlatives. Made sense- she wore crazy clothes, had bleached, spiked hair, and a lot of makeup.

She was a wild, party girl who had gotten expelled from her posh nyc private school, so her dad moved the family to the suburbs of CT so she’d do better. She pretty much went back to nyc every weekend to party.

Not really. Maybe only Ramona thinks this way but the rest of them are in on the joke.

Do you really think that The Countess has attracted swarms of gay fans to her cabaret show because she's a good singer? She's not that dumb, she just plays dumb on TV.

The most interesting thing about this yawn fest of an episode was finding out Dorinda got a boob job. Did that surprise anyone else? They just look big and soft and saggy to me...and she’s already a little heavy that I’m sure she didn’t need them anyway...idk I just would not have called that one.

and oh look Leah "I've changed and can control my alcohol" gets drunk for the 2nd time this season next week in Newport.

and she wonders why her mother is upset when she starts drinking again? This is embarrassing. She really adds nothing to the show except a fake sense of "street chic"

worst season of NYC without a doubt

by Anonymousreply 168Last Thursday at 11:00 PM

Absolutely the worst season. " But Leah is such a good mother." Good mothers don;t do what she did and what she'll do next week. I'm sure her precious daughter is proud and that her friends and schoolmates aren't mortified for her. Getting drunk and losing control is the theme of this entire season. Pretty sad.

The problem with the show is simple to identify - no Jews! All of the lily white boring Catholics and WASPS make for dull tv. Where are the Zarins and the Frankels, the shit-stirrers? How can you have New York without Jews? Let's ignore Jules and Barshop for a moment. Heather was Jewish by " injection" as she says. They bring the action!

I can't believe I ever liked Dorinda. She is a tiresome, drunk, shrieking harpie.

I've recently begin rewatching from the beginning and it's startling how different the show is now. But I will say that in retrospect, the tension between Jill and Bethenny is there from the very beginning. "If you don't stop talking about 'things,' I'm doing to stab you through the heart with a fucking skewer!!" Bethenny screams at Jill while they're having a celebratory dinner. Wtf.

Why does production keep bringing up Ramona’s scene with B on the Bklyn Bridge? People remember that because it all turned out to be TRUE.

For a long time I couldn’t understand why Ramona of all of them became the OG but it’s because she learned very quickly that you punch up, you never punch down. Dorito’s a fucking THUG.
