Breakfast, binge-watching, and beauty are just some of the ways the Real Housewives of New York ladies prepared for the upcoming Season 7 reunion. And before the cameras even started rolling, it was clear the crew was preparing for anything that might happen. "I'm feeling ready. I'm getting my claws on," Kristen Taekman told The Daily Dish before the taping. But she wasn't the only one pulling out the big guns — Dorinda Medley took it one step further. "How did I really prepare? I prayed a lot... then I ate bacon," she shared while in hair and makeup.
NYC's OG Housewife Bethenny Frankel, who returned this season after a hiatus from all the drama, went into the day with a different perspective than her co-stars. "It's kind of different than it used to be," she revealed. "It used to be not so fancy. We didn't have hotel rooms. It used to be really low budget." With that in mind, Dorinda only had one wish for the big day. "I just hope at the end of it we can all still have a drink together." (Spoiler alert: they did.)
