After returning from the Berkshires, Ramona threw a party at her new sports bar, AOA, on the June 9 episode of ‘RHONY.’ Unfortunately, the get together quickly turned into a disaster after Carole told Kristen that Bethenny said she’s ‘dumb.’
We need another glass of Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio after the June 9 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City. S*** just got real. After finishing off a conflict-filled weekend in the Berkshires, the ladies returned to the Big Apple and the drama followed. Bethenny Frankel managed to do damage control with Heather Thompson, but her relationship (or lack thereof) with Kristen Taekman took a serious hit after the former talk show host called her “dumb.” Remember — Kristen “may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but [she’s] pretty!”
The June 9 episode of RHONY picked up right where last week’s left off. Bethenny and Heather continued their screaming match at Dorinda Medley‘s birthday dinner, but they eventually put their differences aside in hopes of salvaging a decent evening with their friends. When separated, however, they both trash-talked the other. Heather even threatened to put on her skully, to show Bethenny who she’s messing with. (Holla!)
Back in New York, Ramona Singer spent some quality time with her daughter, Avery, who had a break from school. Ramona told Avery how her father, Mario, is pursuing her again, and Avery shocked her with an adult perspective on the situation. Avery said that she’s okay with whatever happens, but she’s not putting too much attention on it.
Meanwhile, Bethenny invited Sonja Morgan to her Skinnygirl brand summit. Bethenny just wanted to give Sonja some insight into what it takes to run a successful brand. Sonja seemed like a deer caught in headlights when she walked in, but later she thanked Bethenny for helping her build connections and learn some business tactics along the way. It was a sweet moment. And speaking of building brands, Kristen invited Carole Radziwill to contribute some color and branding ideas to her new nail polish line, called Pop Of Color, which she claims to have trademarked. Carole tried suggesting color names with sex words, but Kristen felt really uncomfortable and wouldn’t stop squirming. Our personal favorite? Thrust.
Ramona Singer’s AOA Party Ends With An Attack On Bethenny Frankel
Later, Ramona threw a party at her new sports bar, AOA, but most of the attention was put on Bethenny as she conflicted with LuAnn de Lesseps, Heather and Kristen! LuAnn wanted to know all about Bethenny’s fight with Heather, but Bethenny said she felt like LuAnn should have minded her own business. Then, before leaving, Bethenny felt the need to talk to Heather again and try to patch things up. Bethenny apologized for being aggressive, and Heather decided to forgive Bethenny. They even hugged. But when Bethenny grabbed Kristen for a quick chat, all hell broke loose. Carole told Kristen that Bethenny called her “dumb,” so when Kristen brought that to Bethenny’s attention, Bethenny stormed off. But not before giving the best “b**** please” face we’ve ever seen. Bethenny then left the sports bar and Kristen said something along the lines of “so much for making a new friend.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was Kristen right for confronting Bethenny? Was Bethenny right for walking away? Whose side are you on? Vote in our poll and tell us how you feel!
