Sonja Morgan’s drunken adventure in Miami continued on Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York.Â
We picked up in the immediate aftermath of Sonja falling to the ground after telling Bethenny she would “knock her out.”
In her trip to the floor, she hit her head on the dining room table, leaving Bethenny Frankel, Dorinda Medley, Barbara Kavovit, and Tinsley Mortimer worried that she hurt herself.Â
The ladies rushed over, and Sonja was still mumbling obscenities, but she did kiss Bethenny on the cheek. But the Skinnygirl founder kept asking if Sonja hurt herself.Â
When Barbara confirmed Sonja hit her head, the paramedics were called by Bethenny.Â
“You just hear horror stories: ‘Oh, someone fell and then died in the middle of the night,'” Bethenny explained.
“So I want the paramedics here because I need to know with 100 percent absolute certainty that Sonja is okay.”
“I just wanna kiss Bethenny!” Sonja said as she awaited the ambulance.Â
“I know, I know, I know,” Bethenny said back. “Big night. It’s a big night.”
Sonja then took aim at Bethenny for ruining her good time, or something.Â
Bethenny was shocked when Sonja started checking out her ass.Â
“Your ass is amazing!” Sonja yelled as she kissed Bethenny’s butt. “Oh, my God. It’s an amazing ass!” she continued.Â
While all of this was going down, Tinsley and Ramona left the house to hit the town.Â
That’s what you do when Bravo is footing the bill for drinks, it seems.Â
“Get in, bitch!” Sonja shouted at Bethenny, telling her to get under the covers with her.Â
“How many fingers am I holding up?” Bethenny asked as she held up three fingers.Â
“Three!” Sonja replied.
“Who is the president?” Bethenny asked. “Uh, Clinton?” Sonja said, adding:
“Oh! That f–king Trump guy!”
When the paramedics arrived, Sonja’s drunken antics were kicked up a notch.Â
“These guys are hot!” Sonja said loudly to Bethenny, who agreed. “Can you check her, too?!” Sonja asked one of them.Â
“That is not appropriate,” Bethenny replied, clearly embarrassed by what was going on.Â
“Do you take any medications on a daily basis?” one of the guys asked Sonja.
“No, but I am allergic to dust mites,” she replied.
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you know that Luann de Lesseps previously claimed that Sonja was taking drugs.Â
Bethenny admitted in a confessional that she was “very relieved to hear that Sonja’s pupils don’t appear to look like she’s taking anything” and that she was excited to “shove that straight up Luann’s ass because it’s a really horrible accusation.”
Luann knew all about the incident but was still mad at the way Sonja spoke to her at dinner.Â
“Barbara came, and she told me the paramedics were there, and after everything that she said to me, I just can’t look at Sonja right now. It was so hurtful, I just can’t move,” Luann admitted to the Bravo cameras.Â
“After Sonja said some devastating things to me last night, nobody’s checking on me to see how I’m doing. Is anybody checking on me? ‘Are you okay, Lu?’ Did I bring a bottle of vodka back to my room? Which God knows I wanted to.”
But why did Luann think that Sonja was pestering her?
“I think they have a problem with my success, is the problem,” Luann told a stunned Ramona the next morning.Â
“Ohhh, I don’t think so,” Ramona replied as she tried to refrain from laughing in her friend’s face.
“I think that they feel that your attitude to the group is that you have this aloof, condescending [attitude].”
Luann maintained her stance, however, even though Ramona said on multiple occasions that it was not correct.Â
The countess added that she felt like Sonja was “spiraling into darkness” and that she would benefit from an AA meeting.Â
“I’m worried about you,” Luann later told Sonja.
“It’s not normal that you faceplant at a dinner table. Do you understand?”
But Sonja was not about to accept defeat. Instead, she went on the offensive.Â
“Oh, really? You who fall in the bushes?” Sonja shot back.
“Yes, but at least I own it! I know I have an issue with drinking,” Luann replied.
Sonja said that she recognized she drank a bit too much and that she needs to “reign it in,” but she did not think Luann was genuine about her concerns.Â
“I don’t think you’re worried about me at all!” she said.
“Why did you complain to the girls? Why didn’t you just say to me, ‘You know what, Sonja? I think you’re a little manic and you’re taking pills.’ I don’t need you saying that to people! If I went around saying that about you, you’d be in jail!”
Luann ultimately said that she would go to Sonja with her concerns in the future.Â
This will not last!

RHONY continues Wednesday on Bravo.Â
Earlier this year, there were eports that Luann de Lesseps was ditching probation requirements to pursue her own interests.
That was alarming all by itself.
On Thursday morning, a Florida judge ordered that Luann be taken into custody for violating the terms of her probation.
This time, there was more to it than falling behind on some of the paperwork included in the terms of her freedom.
This time, she fell off the wagon — again — without setting foot in a rehab facility.
We’d love to crack a “Money Can’t Buy You Class” joke here, folks, but this sounds serious.
Luann is in a lot of trouble. See for yourself:
UPDATE: Against all odds, Luann’s case took a turn for the better. See the details below:
1. Luann de Lesseps Season 10 Pic
2. Luann is still on probation
3. But it looks like her freedom has been curtailed
4. Apparently, she screwed up
5. Had she just stopped caring?
6. The court was alarmed by two things
Bethenny Frankel has had enough.Â
Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City found her confronting someone she helped save not too long ago.Â
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that Bethenny was instrumental in helping co-star Luann de Lesseps realize she needed to seek help for alcohol abuse.Â
Bethenny revealed during the new installment that she thought Luann was being obnoxious, and not caring about any of the other ladies. She also took aim at her cabaret show.Â
Bethenny was not impressed to learn that Luann was bashing her for leaving her cabaret show early. The show in question went ahead hours late, and Luann did not tell her co-stars about it being late.Â
To everyone, Bethenny showed up for as long as she could. Luann, on the other hand, could not say a nice word about Bethenny.Â
Luann said that she wished Bethenny would have stayed for the show.Â
“I mean, I love you, but I was there for three hours. I had to let my babysitter go,” Frankel replied said, before going for the jugular.
“[Dorinda] told me you said, ‘Why is she leaving to go home and watch Bryn sleep?'”
“Well, because I imagine a child at 8 years old by 11:30 is sleeping,” Luann shot back.
“Right, but then guess what? Tomorrow’s school,” Bethenny added.
“So I would like to watch her wake up. And also, I don’t have a nanny. I have a housekeeper that I have babysit, so I don’t like to keep her there until 1 o’clock in the morning if she has to be there the next day.”
Luann went on to say that Bethenny was there for her when she needed it, in her sad times, but she also wanted her to be there during the happy times.Â
“Luann, I’m a mother of an 8-year-old in third grade. It’s Halloween. I was trick-or-treating after school,” Bethenny said.Â “Really, hear me. I need you to actually receive this. I’m a mom, I come home…”
“I know that. I’m a mom, too. Don’t talk to me like I’m not a mom! I know what it is,” Luann yelled.Â
Bethenny wanted Luann to understand that her kids were not 8, but Luann said they once were.Â
“You told me when we were in Miami for Art Basel that I should just get somebody to take care of my kid at night when I don’t wanna do that,” Bethenny fired back.
“Well, yeah,” Luann complained. “When you wanna go out, sure.”
“But I don’t wanna go out at 11:30 at night!” Bethenny said, completely shocked at the way Luann was acting. “I wouldn’t go see Madonna at 11:30 at night!”
“You always say you have to get home for Bryn. At 11 o’clock at night, the child is sleeping!” Lu continued.
“But I have to wake up with her to make her breakfast and take her to school!” B shouted.
“This is my life. You’re doing your cabaret and your life, and I respect that. I was there supporting that. I’m living my life, and you’re not supporting it by saying to somebody, ‘She left to watch her daughter sleep.’ This is my life the way that I’m living it right now.”
“Who do you think you are?!” Bethenny screamed in a confessional. “This is how I’m choosing to do this as a single mom, and I don’t like to be f–ked with on it — at all!”
Ugh. That was wild.Â
What are your thoughts on the argument?
RHONY continues Wednesdays on Bravo.Â
Early this year, the Season 11 trailer for The Real Housewives of New York City teased some vicious conflict between Bethenny and Luann.
At the time, it looked like Bethenny had snapped over Luann’s passion for cabaret. The new midseason trailer shows that it was much more.
What was it that drove Bethenny to shave a martini glass in Luann’s face and yell: “Look in the f–king mirror!” at her?
There’s so much to see in this trailer, which is why we have of course included it in this post.
Midseason trailers tend to reveal a little more, because they’re less concerned with spoilers and more concerned with hype.
But as much as we feel for Dorinda Medley over her tears and troubles, one explosive fight steals the scene.
Bethenny — among others — spends time complaining about Luann’s nonstop talk about cabaret.
You can understand Luann’s passion and Bethenny’s frustration at the same time.
But, as we mentioned earlier, there’s more to their outrageous fighting than Luann’s zeal for drama.
Bethenny tries to have a sort of intervention for Luann about how consumed she seems to be by cabaret.
When Luann starts to defend herself, Bethenny yells: “Nobody gives a f–k!”
They are indoors. The yelling was a bit much, but we understand that they’re on camera.
It’s during another scene that Bethenny truly flies off the handle.
Standing over Luann’s table, she confronts the Countess and seems to have a meltdown.
“Every day is about you!” Bethenny accuses.
Luann clearly does not like hearing this, let alone having it yelled at her.
“Every f–king day is about you,” Bethenny repeats.
Not even her glorious cleavage is enough to soften the blow of those words.
Luann replies, saying: “Look at you.”
Her implication is that Bethenny is making herself the center of attention, doing the very thing of which she accused Luann.
Bethenny doesn’t take kindly to that.
“Look in the f–king mirror,” she insists.
She holds up a martini glass and thrusts it into Luann’s face.
One, Luann is an alcoholic and does not need to have drink glasses thrust into her face for any reason.
Two, nobody does.
But it quickly becomes apparent that part of Bethenny’s emotional turmoil has nothing to do with the Countess.
“You never checked in on Dennis!” Bethenny accuses, referring to her late boyfriend, Dennis Shields.
(We would have made that moment into a gif for you, but it’s so brief that the gif just didn’t look right, but you’ll see it in the video)
The venom dripping from Bethenny’s voice is enough to make everyone uncomfortable.
You can see Sonja Morgan appearing to sit there, as if by not moving she can avoid becoming part of the conflict.
The trailer transitions to what appears to be a short time later.
Bethenny appears to be having an emotional meltdown and perhaps even a panic attack.
Given how many others are crying, she may have been spiraling for some time following her outburst at Luann.
(She’s also seated, another major clue)
Bethenny may not be the most chill person, but it may be that she’s been sitting on her heartbreak about Dennis’ death for too long.
Her outburst at Luann may have been fueled by that, and the yelling may have opened the floodgates.
We hope that she and Luann find a way to make nice after this.
Tinsley Mortimer breathed a huge sigh of relief on Wednesday’s The Real Housewives of New York City.Â
The socialite revealed to her co-stars that the game of “Truth or Dare” made her a single woman.Â
“After everything that happened at Bethenny’s, when I got home, I ended up calling Scott, and I said to him, ‘I need more from you. I just need you to be here. Just come to New York,'” Tinsley revealed during a confessional.
“And he said, ‘No, I can’t.’ So — that’s all she wrote.”
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that Tinsley has struggled with the long distance between her and Scott.Â
She even seemingly confirmed that Scott had a controlling nature to him, leading to Bethenny saying that they needed to get her out of the relationship.Â
Tinsley went to an Al-Anon meeting with Luann de Lesseps and broke the news about the end of the relationship.Â
“This happened all just after that dinner, but I strangely feel this relief,” she claimed, and Luann was ecstatic for her.Â
It must have been horrifying for the women to watch Tinsley question everything about herself, but she’s moved on.Â
Tinsley told Sonja second about it.Â
“Did you have to tell me that now? I’m in such a good mood!” Sonja cackled over the news.Â
Tinsley admitted that Bethenny was partly to blame for it, but noted that it was for the best.Â
“I’m happy to hear that Tinsley and Scott have broken up. I think it’s healthier for her,” Sonja told the Bravo cameras.
“No offense to Scott, but sometimes two people aren’t meant for each other. And I definitely know that Tinsley depends too much on Scott.”
Tinsley waited until she was at Dorinda’s to tell Bethenny the news, and she was super excited to tell it.Â
Tinsley yelled, “Scott and I broke up! Hi! Hello! How are you?”
“There is never any foreplay,” Bethenny laughed to the cameras.
“It is literally jam it in, no lube and we are started. Tinsley is the poster child for breakups. She’s like (in a high-pitched voice), ‘We broke up! Haha! Ding!’ I’ve never seen a better breakup in my life. If I could break up like Tinsley, I’d break up with everybody!”
But that’s not what she said to Tinsley’s face.Â
“That wasn’t the right relationship for you,” Bethenny said warmly.
“That’s good news, Tinsley. I thought I was gonna have to get a rope and f–king pull you out. I really did,” she added.
Ramona was the most surprised about the news.Â
“I really thought Tinsley would just be a hanger-onner with Scott,” Ramona told the camera.
Elsewhere, there were rumors that Ramona hooked up with her ex-husband, Mario Singer.Â
“Ramona can’t even believe he’s there. She turns bright red,” Luann recalled. “I’ve never seen her that cute in ages! I mean, she was like a little schoolgirl!”
Dorinda dished that she heard through the grapevine that Ramona definitely hooked up with Mario.Â
“Did you hook up with Mario?!” Bethenny yelled.
“Yes! She took him home!” Sonja replied while Ramona yelled back, “Absolutely not.”
“He came to the house to walk Coco,” Ramona claimed, but Bethenny muttered, “He wanted to walk her p—y, is what he wanted.”
“I stroked his face with cream!” Ramona added, while Dorinda said, “Is that the only head you stroked?”
Yikes, but also LOL.Â

Never play “Truth or Dare” if there are reality TV cameras in sight.
Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York was filled with drama, and it was all thanks to that game that millennials probably still play.
Tinsley Mortimer wound up in tears by the end, and it was all thanks to Bethenny Frankel daring her to call her boyfriend Scott and cause some drama.
“I dare you to call Scott and tell him he’s the love of your life and that if you’re not engaged by the end of the year, you’re dating other people,” Bethenny said to a confused Tinsley.
Tinsley wanted to leave the game behind because she felt like the dynamic changed the moment Scott’s name was brought up.
“My dare was to call your boyfriend,” Bethenny said, getting frustrated by the way Tinsley was acting toward her.
Tinsley didn’t know what the game was about. Either that, or she was happy to laugh at others, but not herself.
“I’m not doing that because he’d be mad at me for doing that. Stop, you guys. I’m not doing it!” Tinsley shouted as she got up to leave the room for a cigarette.
These ladies were really taking it out of her, so Luann de Lesseps followed.
“He would kill me. Do you understand? He’d kill me!” Tinsley complained to a shocked Luann.
“I know my boyfriend,” Tinsley said in a confessional, adding:
“And I know that making this call to him — all of a sudden there are gonna be giggles and laughter in the background, and he will be really upset. He does not like to be embarrassed, and I don’t wanna do that to him.”
Tinsley was asked when she returned to the table about her feelings, and she wanted to move on from it.
“We don’t have to talk about it,” Tinsley complained.
“But then why are we all friends if we don’t talk about it?” Bethenny asked as though she was Andy Cohen fishing for answers at the reunion.
“I don’t get it.”
“She doesn’t wanna be friends. Maybe that’s what it is,” Barbara Kavovit said, and that was enough for Dorinda Medley to step in.
“No, Barbara. Don’t say that! Don’t be an instigator!” Dorinda shouted.
“You’re always instigating! She didn’t say she didn’t wanna be friends. You always have to go there,” she continued.
“Stop being a busybody. Stop being an interloper. Stop doing it!”
Dorinda wanted Barbara to stay out of the argument, but Barbara was not about that.
“Make me!” Barbara shrieked.
While that argument was playing out, Bethenny took it upon herself to apologize to Tinsley.
“I don’t want to call my boyfriend in front of everybody,” Tinsley replied.
“Don’t bring him in in that way. That’s all. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not calling him because I’m not putting him on blast with girlfriends.”
“I get it!” Bethenny fired back. “But we have to know where the line is. You don’t tell us anything!”
Tinsley was upset at Bethenny inserting herself into the drama, and said she had the same conversation with Scott every day, and that it was “torture.”
“Tinsley, you can’t just be happy when it’s his terms. It doesn’t work that way,” Bethenny tried to explain.
“It does in his life,” Tinsley said to a shocked Bethenny. Tinsley was in tears, and Bethenny tried to help her out.
“You just don’t seem that happy,” Bethenny told her frenemy. “And it seems like your relationship is in a box.”
“He’s a very different person from everybody I’ve ever dated,” Tinsley countered.
“But is he also controlling?” Bethenny wondered.
“Yeah, he has controlling ways about him. Yes,” Tinsley replied. “It’s a f–king juggling act, and every day is a new f–king headache, but I love this guy, okay? I don’t know what else to say.”
“If you were my best girl friend, I’d say, ‘We have to pull you out of this,'” Bethenny replied.
“I am not this bra-burning feminist, but Tinsley sets women back 100 years,” she subsequently told the cameras in a confessional.

Our favorite housewives were still in the Berzerkshires on Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, and that can only mean one thing:Â
By the end of the installment, there were tears and a great big divide.Â
Dorinda Medley, who is annoying much of her co-stars these days, decided to take the ladies to Ventfort Hall.Â
Sonja Morgan was in her element, taking in the beautiful building, but the trip also caused some problems for her.Â
It reminded her of the townhouse she shared with her ex. Yes, her townhouse was like a studio in comparison, but it still reminded her of that beautiful New York townhouse.Â
Remember she was trying to get rid of it?Â
At the mansion, Dorinda was trying to learn everything there was to know about the family who lived in the exquisite abode.Â
At one point, she even picked up a handwritten letter in one of the rooms, and Sonja was livid. She told her friend to get her fingers off the note and to respect that it was not for her to read.Â
“Maybe it’s all the old wood and the dust and the smell of mold, but it goes from Sonja to Lady Morgan very quickly,” Luann de Lesseps said in bewilderment.Â
Ramona Singer picked up on Sonja’s wild behavior and spoke to Dorinda about it at the end of the trip.Â
When they returned to their living quarters, Sonja could not help but get as drunk as possible. She was knocking those drinks back like they were going out of fashion.Â
It was pretty bizarre!
Sonja went on one of her drunken tirades of terror, and not one of the women were safe. She asked Bethenny Frankel to indulge in a night of passion with her.Â
She followed that up by bashing Barbara Kavovit for trying to “steal” Bethenny for her.Â
“You come near her room tonight, I’m gonna punch your face out,” Sonja said to a visibly alarmed Barbara.Â
“What are you talking about, Sonja?” Dorinda wondered.
“I’m talkin’ about the truth!” Sonja shouted.
Bethenny told her to sip some water, and Sonja said that were “goin’ all night.”
“We’re going to the billiards!” she laughed.Â
Dorinda then tried to get her dog away from Sonja, and the latter lashed out.Â
The ladies chatted about jewelry they had been given from their exes, and Dorinda chatted about her deceased husband.
“Oh, boy, here we go!” Sonja yelled, but the ladies had no idea what was going on, so they asked her.Â
“No, I have no problem talking about Richard!” she maintained. “So she doesn’t want to talk about my husband?”
Tinsley stepped in, saying that Dorinda took them all out that day.Â
I said, ‘Look at these antiques,’ and Dorinda put her paws all over these letters,” Sonja complained before shouting, “You got in that house, YOU DON’T TOUCH THOSE F–KING LETTERS! YOU DON’T TOUCH THE F–KING MORGAN LETTERS!” It was pretty embarrassing.Â
Elsewhere, Bethenny was blindsided by Luann’s complaints about the bedroom situation, primarily because Bethenny was one of the few people who tried to help her when she relapsed.Â
“Why is Luann talking behind my back at all saying any negative thing about me whatsoever in any capacity at all in any iteration whatsoever?!” Bethenny complained to Dorinda.
“She should be saying, ‘You are the Lord Jesus Christ,’ and I don’t even know if I believe in that. I’m not Catholic.”
“I really can’t wrap my head around that,” Bethenny added in a confessional.
“We went through this intervention together, and I didn’t do what I did for her because I feel that she owes me, but saying anything negative or anything catty — zero bandwidth.”

Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York was filled with wild drama. There were even some tears thrown in for good measure!
The episode kicked off with Bethenny Frankel confirming she was dating a new man from Boston but admitting that she did not want to transfer all of her grief over the death of Dennis on to the new relationship.Â
While she said it was nothing serious, she recognized that it could get more serious down the line. That’s why she turned to a grief counselor to help her work through her feelings.Â
The grief counselor walked in, and Bethenny could not contain her tears. It all came out in a wild scene. She went on to explain that she was a bit lost in the shuffle after Dennis’ death.Â
His ex-wife dealt with all the arrangements, so she was left out in the cold.Â
“I had to figure out where my place was at the funeral. I didn’t want to intrude,” she said.
“I didn’t feel like I had an identity in any of it, and I kept waking up in the middle of the night and asking my friends, ‘Is he really dead?'”
The counselor explained that there’s no easy way to deal with it because it comes out of nowhere. It’s not like Dennis had an underlying illness, so the last thing Bethenny expected was for her boyfriend to die.Â
Bethenny felt somewhat guilty because she tried to end the relationship with Dennis a week before his suicide.Â
“I could not get off the ride,” she wailed.
“I feel guilty that the only way I got off the ride is that he’s dead. I hope that I didn’t have anything to do with him dying. But now, I feel better. And I feel guilty that I feel better.”
“Dennis told me that if we didn’t work out, he was never gonna be in a relationship again, that he was gonna be alone for the rest of his life,” she added.
“It was a tremendous pressure, and it kept me in. I don’t know what happened that night, and I will always have to live with that.”
Bethenny wondered if she should even be dating again, but her grief counselor noted that it would be a way to honor the love Dennis gave her.Â
Sometime later, Dorinda invited everyone to her Berzerkshires home, and Luann was even on the invite list.Â
Luann was full of demands before she arrived at the house. From yoga instructors to massages, Luann wanted the full works while she was in the lavish house.Â
There was immediate drama when Dorinda decided to deal with the room situation before the ladies got there. If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you know that these ladies always fight over who gets to sleep where.Â
It’s a tad embarrassing, but Luann was put in the fish room and didn’t find out until the ladies were at dinner, and decided to lash out at Bethenny for seemingly getting her own way.Â
“You got some f–king nerve putting me in the f–king fish room!” Luann yelled as she speedily left the restaurant.Â
Yeah, this trip is going to be fun!
What did you think of the drama?
The Real Housewives of New York airs Wednesdays on Bravo.Â
Tensions flared up on Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City when Ramona Singer thought it would be a good idea to attend a clambake hosted by Barbara Kavovit.Â
The issue was that Ramona was never invited, and it emerged that Barbara left her off the guest list with the aim of keeping things calm for newly sober Luann de Lesseps.Â
Ramona showed up with Tinsley Mortimer and Sonja Morgan. The trio agreed to only stay at the event for an hour, presumably to cause a scene and bail with a doggy bag.Â
Ramona was quick to try and get on Barbara’s good side. For the most part, it worked, but Luann was not as forgiving.Â
Luann admitted that it was time to “cut to the chase,” and figure things out, but Ramona was not ready to talk to her, and bailed on the conversation.Â
She went over to Sonja and Barbara and said that they should find a way to bring Luann and Dorinda back together.
Now Ramona’s gonna pretend she’s all worried about Luann’s recovery?!” Sonja said while trying to stop laughing in a confessional.
“Okay, good one. Good one, Ramona. We know that you’re not worried about Luann. You just wanna tell everyone that she was out getting drunk. We know what you’re doing here.”
Sonja wanted to know whether Ramona contacted Bethenny in the aftermath of Dennis Shields’ death. Ramona gleefully said she had via text, and Sonja was pissed.Â Â
“No, now. Now!” Sonja said as Ramona said she had “too much tension going on right now.”
Tinsley apoogized to Bethenny for her loss, but picked up on the huge ring Bethenny was wearing.Â
“I feel like he would want me to wear it,” Bethenny said.
“Oh! It’s from him,” said a stunned Tinsley. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know. Oh, my God. Of course, he would want you to wear it. Oh, my God. Wow.”
Bethenny then admitted that Dennis proposed to her in April 2018.Â
“It was not even close to a perfect relationship,” Bethenny said.
“Part of me died inside. It was really bad. But I couldn’t get out, though, either. I loved him so much, and we were family, and my daughter was so close to him, and I knew him for so many years.”
“He proposed on April 25th. I didn’t tell anybody that. I kept it to myself because I didn’t want another circus of my life, so I didn’t want to start telling people, but we had our own private engagement.”
Bethenny admitted that Dennis even bought her daughter a ring.
“It’s funny because he said to me, ‘Well, did you say yes?'” she recalled.
“And I said, ‘Well, I love you and I can’t believe you did this, but we have to talk about some conditions and some terms and how things are going to change, issues I’ve had with partnership and consistency.’ It was all very complicated.”
“It wasn’t what a natural engagement should be, so our engagement was on ice.”
Ramona, Sonja, and Tinsley knew it was time to go when the one-hour alarm went off on the phone.Â
“Maybe you can bring some [food] back for Dorinda?” Barbara said prompting Ramona to gather the forces and take pretty much everything in sight.Â
Sonja was happy about the offer.Â
“I’m not leaving the lobsters,” she told the camera. “That’s who I am. That’s just who I am.”
“Who leaves someone’s house with multiple lobsters?!” Bethenny complained to the camera. “You know, a little piece of lasagna for the next day, a couple meatballs… She’s taking lobsters! Take a f–king sofa! Just take a f–king end table while you’re at it.”
“She stays for half an hour and then she takes a lobster with her,” Luann added. “I’ve never seen anything like it!”
Sonja, Tinsley, and Ramona returned to the house to tell Dorinda everything. They got chatting about the lawsuit that paved the way for Luann to relapse.Â
“That lawsuit won’t be dropped until everything is finalized,” Sonja said. “But that’s why I asked Bethenny to help her with Dennis and all that ’cause you need a smart guy doing that stuff.”
That’s when Ramona went low. We’re taling VERY low.Â
“How smart can Dennis be? I mean, he was on drugs,” she yelled.
“How unsophisticated are you?” Sonja said of Ramona in a confessional. “Such a lame statement, an unfeeling towards our friend, Bethenny, who just lost her best friend. I can’t do this. Alcohol excuses a lot, but not that statement.”
RHONY continues Wednesdays on Bravo.
Wednesday’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York City reiterated the fact that there was a division among the ladies.Â
The big driving force causing the problems between them was the unresolved tension between Dorinda Medley and LuAnn de Lesseps.Â
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you know that the pair had quite the falling out last season, and Dorinda followed this up by trashing Luann for her arrest.Â
Wednesday’s episode picked up with Dorinda quoting Tyler Perry in a text message sent to Luann.Â
She turned to Ramona Singer, the resident troublemaker to find out if she approved.Â
“I like it,” the 62-year-old said.Â
Dorinda went on to say that she was not going to add a note because she felt the message accurately got her feelings across.Â
Ramona said that it was “non-confrontational” and that it served as a “life lesson” for her nemesis.Â
“I think this text is fabulous,” Ramona said.
Luann was blindsided when she was out shopping with her friend Barbara Kavovit while she received the text.Â
‘When you haven’t forgiven those who’ve hurt you, you turn your back against your future. When you do forgive, you start walking forward. Tyler Perry. A quote from Tyler Perry. You’ve got to be kidding me,’ said Luann who was surprised.Â
“It’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard,” Luann added.
The good thing is that Barbara said that Ramona was probably part of the drama, and she was right.
“It’s like crazy times two,” Barbara said with a grin.
Luann later opened up about the text to Bethenny Frankel.Â
“She’s quoting Tyler Perry,” Bethenny said with a laugh as Luann read out the text.Â
“I’m glad I’m not the only one who thinks she’s nuts,” Luann said.
All of this drama was in relation to the aforementioned clambake which Barbara was throwing for Luann’s nearest and dearestÂ
Barbara worried that Dorinda showing up and starting drama would trigger her friend to fall off the wagon again.Â
Ramona was also on the hit list, but she decided to tag along anyway.Â
Bethenny and Luann were still talking about the message when Ramona showed up.Â
“A Chinese fortune cookie would’ve been better,” Luann said, but things took a turn when she realized Ramona was there.Â
All Luann wanted from Dorinda was an apology, so it makes sense that she’s pissed about the way Dorinda sent a text and then allowed Ramona to show up.Â
Before we learned what happened after that, the episode was over.Â
But we did learn more about Luann’s intervention weekend early into the installment.Â
Luann was trying to buy a $6 million house, but she did not have the means to do so.Â
She went to her friends to ask for the money, and that included Bethenny Frankel’s late boyfriend, Dennis Shields.
Bethenny even declined when she was asked for the money, and Luann was not impressed.Â
“I had been sober for months, and gradually, I had a little glass of wine here, a glass of wine there, and then having this lawsuit with my kids, I justâ€”you know, it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. I had polished off two bottles of rosÃ©, and that still wasn’t enough,” Luann said.
“We all realized enough was enough,” Barbara said.
“We called the attorneys, I got power of attorney. Bethenny blocked calls. We blocked emails, and that was it.”
“I’m glad you remember because I don’t remember a damn thing,” Luann said.

Will Luann flip out?

RHONY continues Wednesdays on Bravo.Â
The Real Housewives of New York City is back, and a lot went down during the hiatus from filming for our favorite housewives.Â
Bethenny Frankel had the year from hell, and that’s in large part down to the sudden death of her boyfriend, Dennis Shields, who was found dead in his Trump Tower home.Â
He was just 51 and died of an overdose.Â
“Can you talk about Dennis?” a producer asked Bethenny, and she struggled to get words out.Â
She was royally put on the spot and had no idea how to address the situation.Â
“Dennis passed away three weeks ago in his apartment,” Bethenny revealed.Â
“Tyler, his daughter, called me hysterically crying and she said, ‘My dad died this morning.’ And I started screaming into the phone.”
Bethenny then made her way to a promotional shoot for Skinnygirl jeans, and while Bethenny was trying to be strong, she was struggling.Â
At one point, she made her way to the bathroom to have a break.Â
“This has nothing to do with him,” she whispered to herself. “I don’t want to cry.”Â
In a later scene, the star invited her friends over to her home to chat about things.Â
That’s when Bethenny revealed that Bryn, her 8-year-old daughter questioned whether Deniss still had a phone.Â
Bethenny went on to admit that she wrote a message to Dennis via text following his death.
Bethenny’s message read: “I love you, Dennis. You’re the most loving, beautiful man in the whole world, and I’m sorry you had so much pain. Now you can really sleep.”
Bryn did the same.Â
Bryn’s message read: “Hi, Dennis. How are you doing today? We miss you. I and Biggie and Smalls miss you, too. From, Bryn.”
Bethenny revealed that Bryn asked whether Dennis got her text the day after. Yikes. It sounds like some heavy stuff.Â
“I’ve never in my life experienced this moment, this feeling, this hysteria,” Bethenny told the cameras.
“Someone told me that he fell the day before on a boat. And then did he take something because he was in pain? But it doesn’t matter. He’s dead.”
“Let me figure out what happened. Let me put the pieces of the puzzle together,” she continued.
“Somebody tell me how bad they feel, his daughter, his son, he was doing this last week, he wrote me 50 texts, he wanted to marry me, I have a ring on my finger. He’s dead! It doesn’t matter! He’s gone. There’s nothing to say.”
“Time is healing the wounds a little more than I thought. It’s going faster,” she said.
“And then I feel guilty. Like, how can you be having fun when Dennis is dead? But I’m trying to do what he would want me to do.”
While Bethenny was going through a nightmare, Luann de Lesseps was trying to fix her life following her relapse.Â
Luann admitted to her new friend Barbara Kavovit that she was her rock.Â
“You saved me, I’ll tell ya,” Lu told Barbara. “I needed to go back. This whole thing with the kids really was upsetting. It was too overwhelming, and I didn’t have the tools that I needed from the first time around, so I’m glad I went back,” she continued.Â
“But when shit hit the fan for me — and it literally did — you came to my rescue with Bethenny, and I will never forget it.”
Luann went on to reveal that the relapse was in part due to the way her ex-husband and kids were treating her.Â
There’s a lawsuit alleging that Luann was supposed to set up trust funds for the kids when she sold the house.Â
“I needed a change in my life, and I fell in love with Upstate, I fell in love with a house, but I couldn’t get a bank loan enough to buy a house in Upstate,” Luann admitted.
“So I wanted to sell my property in the Hamptons, but the children didn’t like that very much. They stopped me with their father by putting a hold on it legally.”
“That really was upsetting to me, and so that kind of threw me off the rails, and I had a relapse, and I had to go back to rehab.”
“Going back to rehab a second time, I was not proud of myself,” she said.
“I failed. It’t not easy to keep that promise to yourself and live a sober life, but I take it day by day. It’s a struggle.”
Luann then dished that she had fixed things with her kids, but stressed the importance of staying sober.Â
“I can’t slip again,” she said. “I won’t.”
What did you think of all the action?

It seems like it was only weeks ago that we watched the The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 reunion.
Now, Bravo has released the trailer for Season 10.
The trailer itself, as you can see, is a work of art. We cannot wait for the actual season to begin.
The Real Housewives of New York City is returning for Season 11 on March 6.
We are nearly at February, the shortest month of the year. March is not far off at all.
Season 11 will pick up with elements of Season 10.
One of those is Dorinda’s “Jovani” heckle. You can bet that Luann didn’t forget.
Another blast from the past is Tinsley’s quest for a husband.
But the trailer stars with Bethenny pulling up and calling Sonja Morgan a “hooker,” so you know it’s off to a good start.
Catcalling is fun if it’s from your friends.
There is a lot of partying and very little context in early parts of the trailer.
We of course recognize the stunning Halloween costumes.
There’s also a butt.
Bravo usually reserves its peaches for The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but made an exception.
We also see a number of the Housewives making out with each other, which isn’t hugely unusual party behavior.
Speaking of parties, they head down to the Sunshine State — to Miami, specifically.
If the timing of one of the clips were slightly different, people would be accusing Bethenny Frankel of being a witch.
At one point while everyone is living it up in Miami, Bethenny admonishes Sonja.
“Go to f–king sleep, now,” Bethenny insists.
(You know how some people get super bossy when they’re drunk? Well, Bethenny takes that to whole new levels)
Sonja just … collapses and falls out of her chair.
We don’t think that this was what Bethenny meant.
Speaking of Bethenny (when are we, in our hearts, not speaking of her?) but on a much sadder note …
In the trailer, a tearful Bethenny can be seen coping with the sudden death of Dennis Shields.
“There was a lot in my mind about him dying,” she admits.
“I could not get off the ride,” Bethenny says of their on-again, off-again relationship.
“I feel guilty,” she confesses. “That the only way I could get off the ride is that he’s dead.”
It is normal to have mixed feelings about the death of a loved one. It is part of coping.
Luann de Lesseps is, of course, doing much better than she was a year ago.
“Nine months ago I was in jail,” Luann cheers. “And now I’m a cabaret star, it’s insane!”
She laughs with glee and is clearly pouring herself into her stage work.
This does seem to bring her into conflict with Bethenny for a moment that we just had to turn into a .gif.
“I can’t even believe you act this way,” an exhasperated Bethenny lashes out.
“‘Cabaret, cabaret, cabaret!’ Life is not a cabaret!” Bethenny insists, which would make a hell of an audition for the villain in a musical.
Finally, Bethenny tells Luann: “You’re insufferable!”
We hope that the two of them managed to patch things up after this outburst.
Bethenny, Dorinda, Sonja, Ramona, and Tinsley are joined this season by Barbara Kavovit and Jill Zarin.
While there are a number of friendships among the Housewives, this will clearly not pressure them to hold back.
It looks like just about every possible conflict comes to light, and we cannot wait to see it all play out.
