Tonight’s new episode of, “Real Housewives Of New York City,” mirrors most of the season so far. This season has been much improved over the past two season, and Bethenny certainly helps to bring some spark back into the show. There are a few reaction I had and somethings I want to talk about regarding tonight’s episode:
1. Ramona and Sonja: These two have always been crazy, but now the former BFF’s seem to have a lot more issues than normal. Ramona and Sonja both have traumatic things happening in their private lives, and it is quite clear they haven’t been as close. It was a good step to see that Sonja wants to take Ramona, and the other girls, on a fun birthday trip to Atlantic City; this is very thoughtful considering it will be her first birthday without Mario. The two seemed perfectly fine here, but when we get to Dorinda’s party, they each seem to the think the other is ignoring them. Clearly, Sonja didn’t speak to Ramona which was bizarre, but this is Sonja we are talking about. As much as I love her and think she is hilarious, sometimes I don’t get what is going on in her head! Luckily the two made up resulting in Ramona tearing up before she left.
2. Kristen Finally Has A Scene: Since the beginning of the season, we haven’t really heard from or seen much of Kristen. She must not have the strongest personal story-line because all they’ve shown us is her working on her blog and calling Heather on the phone. I’m actually surprised she wasn’t downgraded to friend-of-housewife considering she no longer wants to display her marital issues onscreen. With 8 housewives this season, it may have freed up some space for additional story-lines.
3. Bethenny Visits Sonja Inc: In tonight’s episode, Sonja invited Bethenny to her private fashion showroom. Bethenny was surprised, confused, and a bit concerned for Sonja. I’m so confused by Sonja; what business is she actually doing? I know she says she has a clothing line, but as far as I know it isn’t available to purchase anywhere. When Sonja was on “What Watch Happens Live” last week she responded to a fan question by saying people could purchase her designs on her official website. There were then questions later on in the show from fans saying the website said clothing item were coming soon or sold out. I realize Sonja showed her clothing line in New York Fashion Week, but does she have any deals? Without a deal she isn’t going to see any clothes and make money; the girl needs to be making money. Bethenny tried really hard to get the answers out of her multiple employee, but she left even more confused about Sonja’s “lifestyle brand” when she arrived.
Loving the housewives this season especially the Countess!
