The three-part ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ reunion started on Aug. 18 with a fight about how the ladies reacted to the news of Bethenny Frankel’s return. And from there, things quickly escalated, especially when the subject of Carole’s boyfriend, Adam, came up.
The Real Housewives of New York City started its three-part reunion off with a bang on Aug. 18, when the ladies argued over ever little thing, including Bethenny Frankel‘s highly-anticipated return to the series, Sonja Morgan‘s decision to lock them all out of her house before their trip to Atlantic City, her alleged drinking problem, as well as if it’s okay to sleep with guys in their 20’s.
Below you’ll find the biggest takeaways from Part I:
*Bethenny’s ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, plays mind games with her. As Carole Radziwill recalled, Jason once ignored Bethenny’s 8-9 phone calls, when she was just trying to talk to their daughter, Brynn. And it’s all court-appointed.
*When the ladies found out Bethenny was returning to the series, they all went out to dinner (without Bethenny), and Luann de Lesseps made a toast to bringing down Bethenny. Heather Thomson admitted this, but Luann denied it. Or rather, she said she couldn’t remember it.
*Sadly, Heather decided to retire her catchphrase, “Holla!”
*Sonja called Carole a “bulls*** lesbian” — whatever that means. When host Andy Cohen asked Sonja if she’s bisexual, she didn’t deny it. In fact, she admitted to kissing women, and when Bethenny asked her if she ever went to the “south of France” with a woman, Sonja teased that she has.
*When the subject of John Kennedy, Jr. came up, in regards to Sonja’s claim she used to party with him, Carole told Sonja to never talk about him again. Carole claimed no one that was close to John ever called him “John John” and he was never a big partier. Sonja didn’t care and stuck with her story. And that’s when Bethenny asked her, “Do you believe your own bulls***?” Her answer: Yes.
*When the ladies started talking about Carole’s boyfriend, Adam, she and Luann got into it. But Luann failed to explain why she’s upset with Carole. One minute, she said it was because he was her niece’s ex. Then, she said it was because he worked for her. And then it was because he was in his 20’s. Luann couldn’t come up with a clear excuse as to why she’s mad at Carole. But they fought for a while, and we learned that Luann went skinny-dipping a lot while in Turks and Caicos, and a few of the ladies, including her, slept with the houseboy.
