Sonja Morgan finally put on a fashion show on the Aug. 4 episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New York City.’ Unfortunately, it didn’t go as well as she had hoped. And even worse, Bethenny Frankel called BS when Ramona Singer announced she’s having a ‘New Beginnings’ party.
It was fashion week in New York on the Aug. 4 episode of The Real Housewives of New York City, and the ladies went on some exciting adventures. But the most dramatic moment occurred at Sonja Morgan‘s fashion show, when Bethenny Frankel confronted Ramona Singer and accused her of being a hypocrite.
But before all of that went down, Sonja invited Bethenny and Heather Thomson to meet with her design team so they could help her choose models for her fashion show. Things quickly turned sour when Sonja openly told the models what she didn’t like about their bodies. That rubbed Bethenny and Heather the wrong way. But when they chastised Sonja about it, she blew up on them.
Later over lunch, Ramona told Dorinda Medley that she and Mario Singer are never getting back together. She said they’re on two different paths in life and those paths will never come together again. Then, their hot waiter caught Ramona’s attention and she started hitting on him, but Dorinda seemed more interested in matching him up with her daughter. (If you ask us, that’s probably a bit more appropriate.)
Meanwhile, Kristen Taekman debuted her Pop of Color nail polish line during fashion week as part of the Elie Tahari presentation. Unfortunately, she didn’t use any of Carole Radziwill‘s color name suggestions. (Personally, we’re still holding out hope for “Thrust.”)
When Kristen, Carole and Heather finished at Kristen’s nail polish line debut, they headed over to Sonja’s fashion show, where Bethenny, LuAnn de Lesseps and Ramona were waiting. And when Ramona announced she’d be hosting a “New Beginnings” party, Bethenny blew a gasket. Instead, she suggested Ramona throws an “Old Habits” party. You see, Bethenny is still upset that Ramona borrowed two dresses from her and never returned them. She’s also still peeved about how Ramona tried sabotaging her lunch while in Turks and Caicos. So she doesn’t think Ramona is a changed woman, as she claims to be. Ramona laughed off the “Old Habits” comment, but Bethenny wouldn’t let it go. While waiting for the second set of Sonja’s fashion show to start, Bethenny confronted Ramona about spreading lies and telling people she’s a cheater. Ramona denied doing such a thing, offered to pay for the dresses, and then awkwardly said Bethenny could slit her wrists. And as if that wasn’t enough drama, behind the scenes, everything went wrong for Sonja. Sonja’s interns — who probably get paid nothing — were constantly insulted by her, as Sonja felt she had to do a lot of the work herself. And then, Sonja got into a huge fight with someone who was working backstage, when a model was caught wearing the wrong look. On a positive note, everyone loves Sonja’s clothes.
