On The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 Episode 3, Sonja continued to drag Dorinda, escalating the drama and then some.
There was also a trip to the Hamptons involved, which you know means rest, relaxation and absolutely no issues between the cast.
If you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online, you know that these women have a way of blowing things out of proportion.
In this case, though, Carole Radziwill was too stressed about the upcoming presidential election to care much else. Easy to understand.
The 2016 election results weren’t known yet, but when Bethenny asked Ramona if she was going to attend Carole’s election party?
Polls accurately predicted awkwardness, bigly.
Ramona said that Carole had been too aggressive about politics, but Bethenny said no one who wasn’t “very informed” got an invite.
The ladies enjoyed a good chuckle over how intense Carole is about politics before Ramona asked Bethenny about another controversy:
Ramona posed the not-scripted-whatsoever question:
Had anyone had approached Frankel’s daughter, Bryn, about Bethenny’s alleged nude movie role that recently surfaced in the tabloids?
Yes, there is an alleged Bethenny Frankel sex tape.
Well … it’s more like a nude scene in a video, but you get the idea. It’s salacious, and Singer could not resist putting her on the spot.
Frankel wasn’t having it for a second though.
“Ramona attempting to embarrass me through my daughter who is in first grade is even low for Ramona, which is a new low,” she said.
“Because ‘Ramona low’ is low already.”
“I don’t regret it at all!” Bethenny replied when Luann told her not to worry about it. “I needed the money, and I wanted to be an actress.”
Ramona added that “in life, things happen for a reason,” but Bethenny retorted, “Good friends should be able to ask each other questions.”
Luann later suggested to Ramona that Bethenny might be embarrassed by her question (ya think) but Bethenny overheard and snapped.
“I think your attitude is unacceptable!” Ramona retaliated, at which point Carole delivered the ultimate insult, comparing Ramona to Trump.
Told you she had politics on the brain.
Singer went on to call Frankel out: “You may be good with business, but you know what? You’re really not good at interacting with people.”
Luann agreed with her there, telling Frankel that she’s a very selfish person: “You don’t care about any of us! You only care about yourself!”
Ramona then called Bethenny a “B-I” (short for a word that begins with those two letters and ends with three more), as well as a “witch.”
Bethenny got fed up and walked out.
The next day, at the inevitable rehashing, Luann, Ramona and Dorinda met up and Ramona insisted she did nothing wrong in the least.
“I don’t think that Bethenny likes when people point out the cracks, and Ramona pointed out a crack,” Dorinda said, with a major caveat.
Singer’s timing, delivery and attitude? Not the best. Trump-like at times, which can rub people the wrong way if you’re supposedly friends.
Dorinda was more focused on Sonja, though.
She claimed that her co-star was “on a slanderous rampage” against her … while Sonja acted like nothing was wrong between them.
Vintage Real Housewives, in other words.
At Singer’s dinner party, Dorinda told Carole that she had a “mole” who had researched Sonja’s activities and given her a file on her.
Yes, basically an opposition research file “several inches thick” containing pretty much everything Morgan had ever said and/or done.
Medley could barely contain her excitement for when Sonja arrived and she could start lobbing some of these fun facts at her frenemy.
Stay tuned for next week.
