Over the last few weeks, many of the housewives have been questioning Sonja’s business aspirations, and on the May 5 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New York,’ she had enough — a huge fight erupted. Plus, Carole made a confession to Luann.
On the May 5 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, Dorinda hosted a cocktail party for all of the ladies and their men. But what was supposed to be a sweet get together, soon turned into a night full of controversy. Not only did Carole reveal a huge secret, but John got a little too friendly with the ladies, and Sonja went to bat against her fellow housewives.
‘RHONY’: Sonja & Ramona Fight At Dorinda’s Cocktail Party — May 5 Recap
It all started when Bethenny had lunch with Sonja so she could find out why the other ladies have been questioning Sonja’s business aspirations. Sonja kept saying she has an international brand, but when Bethenny asked what products she sells, she had a hard time giving a good answer. Bethenny suggested she focus on one product and go from there.
Later, Bethenny attended a business meeting of Sonja’s, where she asked those in Sonja’s camp some pretty tough questions. While Sonja felt Bethenny was just looking out for her, her employees didn’t feel the same way. Instead, they felt interrogated. But Bethenny had some good points, and Sonja doesn’t seem to know what she’s doing.
Meanwhile, Luann and Dorinda met for pedicures, when they discussed Dorinda’s impressions of the ladies — she really only talked about Bethenny and said she has a “different energy” than the other housewives. They also talked about Dorinda’s boyfriend John and Luann told her she’s a bit “insecure.” Thankfully, Dorinda didn’t take offense to that comment and actually agreed.
Sonja and Ramona also met up for a quick glass of pinot grigio, when Sonja suggested they go to Atlantic City for Ramona’s birthday — it’s her first without husband Mario, so Sonja wanted to do something nice for her friend. We only heard them invite Carole and Dorinda, but we think it’s safe to assume that all the ladies will be traveling to New Jersey next week!
Dorinda’s Cocktail Party Goes Awry
Later, Dorinda hosted a cocktail party, where things got messy rather quickly. Sonja brought her boyfriend Dominic and dissed Ramona by not acknowledging her. When Heather arrived, she started questioning Sonja’s business ventures and why she wasn’t invited to her business meeting, yet Bethenny was. Sonja didn’t feel like Heather genuinely cared, so she started raising her voice and calling everyone liars. Sonja then got into a heated altercation with Ramona because she felt dissed for not being acknowledged. When Sonja gave a half-assed apology, Ramona put on her coat and booked it. And that’s when John got a little too friendly and started fondling Sonja and Kristen. (So awkward!)
While all that was happening, Carole decided to finally share her big secret with Luann. Carole confessed that she’s seeing Adam, Luanna’s niece’s ex. Luann didn’t seem to happy about it, but during one of her interviews, Carole said she doesn’t care and Luann should mind her own business.
