Another season of The Real Housewives Of New York has come to an end, marking 10 riveting years on television. In the reunion sneak peek, the New York knockouts are dressed to kill for the aluminum anniversary but sadly the only things foiled here are friendships.
This season was a heartbreaker for true fans of the reality series…and I know this because my heart is shattered. Some of our favorite friendships have become rocky enough to make the boat ride from hell look like a stroll through Central Park.
My favorite pair of housewife besties, Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill, started out the season with tension for reasons that are still not fully clear. Time and time again we witnessed temporary truces only to see them broken one confessional interview later. In the last few seconds of season we saw the pair finally hug it out with Carole promising Bethenny that the they would “find their sweet spot” once more. As a jaded New Yorker, I don’t know why I believed in such “hope.” The reunion sneak peek shows that the two are now full blown enemies and I’m reminded as to how I’ve become so distrusting.
As if one dissolving friendship wasn’t enough, Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps seem to be on opposite sides now as well! While Luann could not attend the reunion due to her second stint in rehab, it is clear that her storyline has rippled amongst the other women, and will cause some major waves to crash down.
The clip below starts off promisingly enough with each of the women looking more glam than we have ever seen them. With all of the high hair you’d think we were looking at contenders for Miss Teenage Hairspray… The glamour quickly fades as the women start slinging mud at one another, but mainly at Bethenny. I have always been a Bethenny fan so I know she can handle being ganged up on by Carole and Ramona Singer. It’s with love that I also say, she needs to take it down a notch sometimes. She gets so riled up at the reunion that she comes within inches of Carole’s face just to prove the validity of what she says. There’s never a need to thug it out in a ballgown girl. The whole ordeal is saddening but compelling nonetheless! I know what I’ll be watching next Wednesday!
The three part reunion begins August 22 at 8pm EST on Bravo. Until then, check out the sneak peek below!
