Oh, Real Housewives reunions. How amazing you can be. And how boring you can be. This episode, the first part of The Real Housewives of New York City season eight reunion, was a mixed bag, leaning more toward the amazing side of things. There were drug references, surprise phone calls, and even a tiny package devoted to Rey, Luann de Lesseps' ex-boyfriend who magically appeared at Dorinda Medley's dry cleaning party. But there's one thing for sure: Bethenny Frankel is not messing around.
Let's break it down.
Dorinda and her boyfriend John got rolled into one for a segment, which is understandable considering how much drama he generated at the start of the season. Dorinda admitted after the bra party that she was planning her exit from the show and that John was horrified after seeing his actions there. Obviously she did not leave the show. "I came out a stronger person," she said.
And then the drug talk started. Andy Cohen asked Bethenny if she was referring to cocaine when she asked John if they wanted to do lines and talk about the Skinny Cow vs. Skinnygirl stuff. She said she was, but then wanted to bypass the conversation. Andy said she brought it up on camera, so…
"I'm not here to ruin people's lives, I'm not here to f—k people," Bethenny said. And then Luann hopped in.
"What do you mean you're not here to ruin lives? You get into it with Jules [Wainstein], you get into with Dorinda, you get into Sonja [Morgan] and make her cry…You're always into it," Luann said.
Anyway, Dorinda said that whatever Bethenny was going to say she did, she actually didn't. "Why are you insinuating that I do drugs?" she asked the Skinnygirl maven.
"Everybody knows you do drugs," Sonja exclaimed.
But then the ladies started yelling over each other and Luann instructed everybody to drop it because they "decided" they weren't going there.
This was wild. Have you ever seen something like this at a reunion?
