Kelly Bensimon and LuAnn de Lesseps, led by Jill Zarin, launched a vicious attack on Alex during Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New York reunion special. It was uglier than the Orange County Housewives Season 6 reunion. Who would have thought that was possible. All we were left with was impoverished souls and spirits.
Poor Alex, struggling so hard to remain relevant among this cast of moronic, snapping vipers determined to get rid of her. Jill Zarin has had this agenda for two years now, this year she may have succeeded. Andy Cohen certainly seems ready for Alex to leave. There is apparently no love lost between Cohen and Simon van Kempen, either.
Best line of the evening by Alex: “Jill has enough dirt on Luann for a landfill’.
Poor Kelly, with the brain capacity of a five year old, thinking she’s the voice of reason this year. She must have an awfully good publicist,or some mighty influential protectors. Andy laid off Kelly altogether, no matter what stupid shit came out of her mouth. Weird? Inauthentic? LuAnn and Jill treat her like a 42 year old child.
Poor LuAnn, haughty and condescending based on an ex-title from an ex-husband. But Andy Cohen seems to favor her the most, he had this season edited to center around her. So expect more of the same, or worse, next season. And yes, LuAnn is a Thug in a Cocktail Dress.
Poor Ramona, forced to defend not only her marriage but also her drinking. Ramona knows how to fight back on both points, however, and she took no prisoners with LuAnn and her attack on her daughter. Ramona is totally delusional, however, if she believes she’s not menopausal. How crazy is that? After Ramona slapped a Bravo producer , what edit could she expect? Ramona,however, is very good TV.
Poor Sonja, going through bankruptcy on national television. But Sonja Morgan is the most likeable out of this train wreck. She was quiet during most of part 2.
Poor Cindy. Poor who? As Evelyn Lozado of Basketball Wives would say; ‘She’s a non-mother-f^^king factor.
Poor Jill . She must be the most unhappy person on Earth. Jealous of everyone, hates anyone who doesn’t agree with her, and can never hide it. The look on her face when Ramona’s marriage came up…sheer ecstasy. How can the woman who gives bj’s for jewelry have so much animosity in her heart for everyone? She positively enjoys anyone’s misery and suffering. And she can never hide it, after four seasons of watching her reactions, you know what she’ll say before she says it. But Andy Cohen loves her, this monster will return. Jill’s definition of friendship says it all.
It’s not over. They will continue to battle it out on twitter and in their blogs. Filming, according to Simon van Kempen, is scheduled to begin Labor Day. None of them have been told as of today whether or not the puppet master will allow them to extend that 15 minutes into Season 5.
Before the season began, I wrote Nothing Without Bethenny. Unfortunately, it was true.
Watch What Happens, or not.
