Teresa talks Housewives bridge battles, and discovers Bethenny's more than just a "joke machine."

 

What a great episode! Finally, things are happening, secrets are coming out, and we’re starting to see more sides to the stories.

First, Bethenny and Ramona went on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge (random...) where they both attacked each other like crazy. Ramona accused Bethenny of planting her own press, being self-serving and having no friends. Bethenny shot back that Ramona was crazy and ungrateful and reminded her that she had told her Twitter friends to buy Ramona’s HSN jewelry. The most shocking things weren’t the insults though, it was what happened afterwards: Bethenny showed emotion and Ramona showed remorse. When Bethenny cried it was nice to see she was actually more than just a joke machine. And when Ramona apologized for hurting Bethenny’s feelings, I almost fell out of my chair. Ramona actually sensed she had crossed the line, seemed to regret it, and apologized to Bethenny over and over again. So much so that they were still friends by the time they got to the end of the bridge.

Ramona actually scored more points with me when she tried to get Jill and Bethenny to meet. First of all, when she presented it to Bethenny, she didn’t try to bully her about it, she said, “Think about it, don’t answer me now, just think about it.” (Who is this calm, rational Ramona?) I think it was nice she tried to get them together. It was a setup, yes, but it wasn’t sabotage for goodness sake. And as we saw from the clip - it was EXACTLY the same thing Jill did to Bethenny and Kelly last year. Jill literally locked them in a bedroom and told them not to come out until they were friends. Jill and LuAnn have no right to be mad at Ramona.

What is up with LuAnn not wanting Jill and Bethenny to make up? I have a feeling if Bethenny apologized to LuAnn and tried to be friends with her first, then LuAnn would be OK with Jill and Bethenny being friends...

 

I thought it was very nice of Alex to try and fix Jill and Bethenny’s relationship too. We know that Jill had this horrible summer with Bobby, but now we find out that Bethenny was dealing with her own bad personal issues.(Bethenny flew all the way to LA to see her dying father and he refused to see her? I don’t care who you are, that has to hurt.) Jill knew about Bethenny’s problems with her dad. They talked about it in past seasons.

So, last week I wanted to know, why didn’t the other Housewives tell Bethenny how sick Bobby was? Is it because, as Bethenny claimed this week, Jill said at the time it was only "a procedure," when now she says he had his throat slit from ear to ear???

On her blog last week, Jill says she didn’t know all the bad stuff that Bethenny was going through at the time, that no one told her. Yet this week, we saw Alex tell Jill that Bethenny was really hurting and that it was about her dad. That wasn’t enough to shake Jill out of her own pain and reach out to her friend?

Of course, we don’t know what we don’t see on TV, but what we did see was Bethenny trying to reach out to Jill, and Jill refusing her. Again.

First Bethenny tried to talk to Jill at the fashion show, Jill turned her away. Bethenny called Jill. Jill wasn’t having it. Then Bethenny showed up to talk to Jill, and Jill again refused to mend anything. Three times? Jill has denied Bethenny three times? That’s a grudge of Biblical proportions...

 

We know Jill has been hurt, has cried over Bethenny, truly loved Bethenny, and is heartbroken. Maybe Jill tried to reach out to Bethenny a bunch of times and we didn’t see it on the show. If so, great. But if that were true, wouldn’t it only make even more sense then that she would finally try and make up with her?

I’m totally sure they both hurt each other. But it looks like it’s hurting them both much more to hate each other than to just get over it. I wonder what Jill’s mom Gloria has to say about all this. She was close with Bethenny, she watched their friendship and knew what was going on all summer with Bobby and Bethenny and Jill. Doesn’t she give advice about forgiving and not holding grudges? What are the Secrets from a Jewish Mother for friends and forgiving? Jill’s Mommy, we need you!

Love you all!

Sonja: A Fun Night With a Younger Man Never Hurt Anyone

Sonja thinks she may have found this season's pot stirrer and wonders if Ramona is really happy.

Welcome back to the bitches who brunch!
I’m disappointed to see that the girls are being vile and continuing to attack me and claim that I do not have legitimate business deals going on. Especially to Bethenny, who has not seen us frequently since she had little Bryn. Gawd forbid Bethenny believes this horse sh--. Luann, Kristen, Heather, and Carole all claimed that I am not really a businesswoman, that all of my ideas are not coming to fruition, that I don’t work every day, and that I didn’t make the toaster oven. That should get a few laughs from those who know. But even if I was not successful and were delusional, as the girls say in Bethanny’s kitchen, what kind of friends badmouth another friend like that? Right now I need friends who are going to support me. It also upset me that the other women said that I was drinking too much at Luann’s housewarming party! The women know that I wasn’t drunk that night, and I’m surprised that Heather would try to allege that I went from cider to beer to drunk. I didn’t stay to party with Heather and Luann and try to keep up with them. I left to go to Ramona’s, where I was a guest. I am running my businesses and raising my daughter, and I can’t afford to have that kind of toxicity in my life, especially with investors involved. I hope that with the release of my fashion and jewelry line that the girls will change their tune and accept that I am and have always been an independent businesswoman. Sometimes I think they just want to keep me where I was. That was comfortable for them. You don’t see me running around looking for a new husband to take care of me. I married my ex-husband because I loved him. BTW, the gardener gave me his number to meet him out after, but I was a good girl and went home.

It seems like Heather has decided to become the new meddler in the group. This should prove to be interesting. While I am very grateful that she was willing to help me with my toaster oven shoot and the box mockup, I would appreciate it if she stopped getting involved in my business affairs. We mutually agreed to that after that last experience! Heather then went on to try to tell Bethenny how to handle Ramona when Bethenny has known Ramona for so much longer than Heather! This reminded me of when Heather tried to get in between Luann and Ramona during Season 4. She also got in between Carole’s argument with Aviva. In the preview we see that Heather can’t stop herself from getting into the other girl’s business, and then she tries to tell Bethenny to apologize to Kristen! We have yet to see Heather fight one of my fights! I hope that Heather gets the hint and lays off telling the rest of us what to do.

I thought that the whole brunching situation was ridiculous, even though I adore going to 75 Main and seeing my friend Zach Erdem. I don’t understand why we all couldn’t have just had brunch together. I think if everyone was just a little more relaxed, we would all have a better time, and we wouldn’t fight about these silly things. Life is too short to worry about who’s HOSTING the brunch! As long as we are getting Bloody Marys, everyone should be happy! Heather makes the best Bloody Marys! Why for Gawd's sake are we not following her to brunch?!

I am so glad that the girls and I got to have a fun night out at Beautique like it used to be! There was no drama, no fighting, just girls having a good time and not judging each other. I agree with Bethenny that it was odd that Luann didn’t tell her that Kelly was coming, but I’m glad that they were able to move on and not let one bad moment ruin everyone’s night. Maybe this was Lu trying to patch them up? We have seen Lu and Ramona do a 360. Lu and Bethenny did a 360. Ramona was having a good time and seemed like she was adjusting well to being single! I know that Ramona is going to be OK, especially if she has the support of all of her single, fabulous girlfriends, and there are many. I still find it strange that Ramona got upset with me saying she was divorcing when she says she is single over and over. Could she be pretending to be happy single? Trying to prove something? I still remember that psychic telling her Mario was cheating. It was so upsetting, I started crying for Ramona.

I am so glad that I met Dominik, and I had a lot of fun with him, but I am definitely not looking to be in a relationship with a younger man right now. I had a young boyfriend last year! At this time in my life, I am looking for a man who is more established and can be a long-term partner--and closer to my age. Especially now that I have ducks lined up, and I’m seeing the trees through the forest. I have not been this happy in some time.

But one fun night with a younger man never hurt anyone. Tune in to see if this is a one-nighter or not! The women are saying a lot of nasty things about me, but no one is trying to say that Sonja Morgan doesn’t know how to have a good time! No matter what happens, I am always the straw the stirs the drink. Lu and Heather drag me around like an old suitcase, so you know they are not worried about me at all. They are just too darn encouraging for that to be true. I guess I need to give my girlfriends more attention once I am over the hurdle of my lawsuit, so they feel secure in our friendship. We have seen LuAnn duke it out with Ramona over my time spent between them. Now we see Ramona freaking on Bethenny over her time with me. I guess I’ll just be the fire hydrant!
