The Morning After: Housewives Overboard
Miss last night's Real Housewives of NYC? Get the dish on the vacay getaway and Kel's meltdown here!
What happens when you take five housewives on a tropical weekend away from the city? Apparently, non-stop catfights. Either Kelly has a lot of built up frustrations with Bethenny, or... well, who are we kidding? There really isn't another scenario.
Last night on Real Housewives of NYC, Ramona took her gal pals down to the Virgin Islands for some bachelorette party fun on their own private yacht. But even though Ramona did her best to meet Sonia's need of luxury, and her own need of pinot grigio, it was Kelly who found a way to spoil the mood and stir up drama. And Ramona thought that JIll and LuAnn were the buzzkill combo.
Whether it was a comment about stomping grapes taken the wrong way, or a moment of gossip between friends, Kelly made sure to halt any and all conversations and turn them into a personal attack against the other housewives. Her main target? Bethenny Frankel. And all this time we thought it was Jill Zarin who was the big, bad bully. It looks like Kelly Bensimon has intercepted the title this week.
Following Alex's lead from the past few weeks, but short of a high school reference and a near horizontal storm off, Kelly set those old frustrations free in a not so private setting. What could be the need for such a display? Maybe Kelly is jealous of Bethenny's success. Or maybe she's jealous of each of the housewives' ability to feel? Or is it that she's just tired of standing on the sidelines of these arguments only to add in a "that's creepy" comment here and there?
If it's the latter, Kelly succeeded at making her own scene this week. From disregarding Bethenny's feelings about the loss of her father, to an accusation that Bethenny is not a real chef, Kelly attacked at full force. (That is, until she realized she was on a boat and had no where to go.)
These housewives better be careful. If they get too much off their chests, they might not be allowed back on the Hooters Patrol yacht.
