Greetings, my peeps! How is everyone today? Welcome, welcome. We are on Ep 2 of the roller coaster known, formally, as the Real Housewives of New York City. Has everyone recovered from last week? MisRed has. But just barely. Barely.
Last week, let’s see, we learned what has been happening with these crazy chicks since last season. Ramona is still an overbearing lunatic but seemed to have had a personality transplant by the second half of the episode. Tinsley is single again. She and The Coupon King have split and she has settled into her new apartment hotel room with a little dog named Bambi, who we suspect has never been outside. Dorinda is 6 months sober. Just kidding. She’s as big of a lush as ever and is pissed off at Sonja. What else is new? But this time it’s because Sonja didn’t “greet the host” at Dorinda’s Halloween party. In fact, everyone is pissed off at Sonja. Speaking of the Lady Morgan, she is a hot mess as usual. She is still dating Rocco- outwardly. She claims to have spent some time working on herself in the off-season, but she still seems as rude, oblivious and as non-self-aware as ever. The Bethenny/Carole friendship seems to have cooled slighly. Carole and Adam have broken up, but he’s still boning her on the side. Carole, after having never exercised a day in her life, has decided to run the NYC Marathon. Logical. Bethenny has been doing relief work in Puerto Rico and has lost her dog, Cookie. Bethenny and Ramona fought about which whether or not Bethenny’s investment property is technically south of Montauk Highway or not. Honestly, these two could fight about the color of the sky. And LuAnn… well, she’s divorced and has “suffered a lot.” Oh, she’s mad at Carole again because Carole didn’t reach out to her after her divorce, and she’s mad at Sonja for speaking about her to the press. She sincerely feels that nobody has given her the support she deserves after her break-up. No, no, Lu’s friends supported her on the FRONT-END by telling LuAnn that her then fiancé, now ex-husband, was a slimy, cheating greaseball who couldn’t stop trolling for skanks at The Regency. And the rest of the world is mad at LuAnn for dressing as Diana Ross, including a 2 foot high afro wig, for Dorinda’s Halloween Party.
MisRed believes that catches us up. Now, let’s get started. Hang on, while MisRed turns on the subtitles so we can understand Dorinda.
We open with Bethenny having received a gift from Dorinda. It’s glass. A snowman maybe?
Not sure what this is, but thank you.
Dorinda arrives at Bethenny’s apartment for lunch. Apparently, the two of them were in touch a lot over the summer, and Dorinda was very intrigued by Bethenny’s relief work. She immediately offers her condolences to Bethenny, over the loss of Cookie. Apparently, Cookie had 40,000 Twitter followers. Dorinda refers to her as the ZsaZsa Gabor of dogs.
The Cookie Tribute continues.
MisRed has read some comments that people thought Cookie was a real bitch. Like mother like daughter. MisRed’s dog is the same way- sweet until crossed, just like her Mama, MisRed.
Tinsley has static cling and no curls but manages to overcome this tragedy and meet Ramona and Carole for lunch. Ramona and Carole are both hungover from Dorinda’s Halloween party. They rehash Dorinda’s party and discuss LuAnn and her offensive costume. Carole wants to know when coming to a party in “black face” became okay.
Ramona disputes that LuAnn was in “black face,” saying she just “looked tan.” Then says, “you thought it was politically incorrect?”
Uh, yeah. Or politically insensitive, at minimum. And, oh yeah, just a stupid thing to do in today’s climate. Frankly, MisRed found the gigantic afro wig to be more offensive than LuAnn’s self-tanner.
Ramona thinks LuAnn’s “self-tanner” was fine. Besides, she says, “Diana Ross WAS an icon.”
Last MisRed checked, Diana Ross is still on this side of the ground. Although, not shocked that Ramona doesn’t know that. Bless her heart, OKaaaaaaaaay?
Chat and Chew
Tinsley was surprised that Lu didn’t talk more about Tom. What?!?! Maybe Tinsley has some hearing loss. Carole was like- well she called me on the carpet for not reaching out to her when she and Tom broke up. Ramona says she felt bad for Lu.
Ramona feels things? Who knew?
Carole is in shock that Ramona feels things- and reminds Ramona that Lu was going around calling Ramona (and everyone) jealous bitches for two years. Ramona says she doesn’t care, she still feels bad for Lu.
Ok, who are you and what have you done with Ramona?
This woman’s face is moving. This can’t be Ramona.
In Carole’s talking head she says that Lu expects everyone to come and “bend the knee to her.” And that LuAnn holds everyone to a higher standard than she does herself.
Ramona said that she thought Bethenny looked great at the party, but a little thin, and was confused as to what the heck happened between the two of them the previous evening. Ramona refers to herself as a “maven of the Hamptons,” and wanted to discuss Bethenny’s investment property and felt like Bethenny was attacking her.
Ramona Singer, Hamptons Maven
Tinsley suggests that maybe Ramona say she’s sorry. Ramona is like – I did, but Tinsley thought she said it too late. Tinsley’s point is that maybe when Bethenny goes off the rails, Ramona should just back down and, like, surrender.
MisRed sees her point, but that’s just rewarding Bethenny’s crazy behavior. By the same token, letting Ramona act like a complete animal when they are on vacation is the same- allowing someone to act like a maniac out of a sense of entitlement. MisRed thinks the only solution is to settle things with a Cage Match.
Dorinda- stay out of Erika’s closet
Back at Bethenny’s, she and Dorinda discuss the Halloween party. Bethenny notes that “LuAnn was ABSURD” but she hung out with her until 2am, with the wig still on. Dorinda felt LuAnn’s “self-tanner” was a on the verge of being insensitive. Bethenny said she had a great time hanging out with her- Bethenny even had some street meat and she’s sure LuAnn had some “street meat” of her own. Lol. Bethenny had fun with her and it was good for their relationship. Dorinda says that Lu IS a lot of fun, especially now that she’s lost 180 lbs.
180 lbs of useless, dead weight
Bethenny and Dorinda discuss the Ramona situation the previous evening. Dorinda, was probably passed out when this occurred- MisRed is too lazy to go back and look. But Bethenny thinks that Ramona will take any opportunity to make a dig at Bethenny and “As long as she is better than everybody else, she’s happy.” Dorinda is staying with Ramona in the Hamptons that weekend, so she is sure she will get Ramona’s version of the story.
Bethenny wanted to celebrate her birthday in the Hamptons and have a dinner. “Just have a nice, good, girls dinner.” Well, Bethenny better find some other girls.
Dorinda then says “I’m going to meet Sonja now. Do you remember if I had anything with Sonja at the Halloween party?”
Ooooooooh God. Bethenny wasn’t there for Dorinda’s whole “when you come to a party, do you say hello to the host” broken record.
when you come to a party, do you say hello to the host?
when you come to a party, do you say hello to the host?
when you come to a party, do you say hello to the host?
Bethenny says that Sonja thought that nobody thought she looked like Lucille Ball. Dorinda says Sonja is fine one on one but when it’s the Ramona / Sonja show, she hates it. Bethenny says she will take Sonja over Ramona’s bullsh*t any day.
Carole is getting nervous about the Marathon. She bought 20 tickets for the Marathon and so far, Tinsley is the only one who called Carole and asked for a ticket, everyone else seems to be out of town. Tinsley does seem like a supportive friend. You know, even if she is holding that Chihuahua hostage in her hotel room.
Carole says, jokingly, “But if you want to throw me a party afterwards…”
Ramona chimes in “I am throwing a party for you on the 11th in the Hamptons.” This seems like it’s news to Carole. She wonders if it’s supposed to be a surprise and Ramona just let the cat out of the bag? But Ramona says that she’s really proud of Carole for running the marathon. Carole worries that she won’t finish.
Uh oh… foreshadowing.
Seriously, did Ramona get some kind of personality transplant or has she been kidnapped by some cult and this is a body double? Nah, any cult that would kidnap Ramona would return her 2 hours later- too much trouble.
BTW, MisRed is starving… and Ramona is eating Lobster Tacos. She really has some nerve eating those in front of MisRed.
Sonja meets Dorinda for a walk. Sonja is, like, all dress up. Sonja is shocked Dorinda even remembers discussing going for a walk considering how banged-up Dorinda was the night before at the Halloween party.
Dorinda says she is really going to try with Sonja this year- because they always get “off track.” But Dorinda is just going to “let it slide.” Whatever that means. Then we get treated to one of Sonja’s rambling diatribes about going to Costa Rica and being the only one in the hotel and doing yoga and raw food and how she went to a psychiatrist and he told her she needs to “rest her brain” because she’s been in “fight or flight mode” for so many years with the divorce and the lawsuit and getting her kid off to boarding school…
I’m an International Lifestyle Brand, An event company, a jewelry line, I have a huge Latin Following, Toaster Oven, Nigerian football team, smokey eye, updo, Gstaad, fashion line, John John Kennedy, The Yacht, Tipsy Girl Prosecco
Sonja admits she has been on an anti-depressant and feels good. But wait, didn’t she say last week that she was OFF the anti-depressant? Who knows. Who cares.
Dorinda asks if Sonja enjoyed the Halloween party… or attempts to? Sonja says that she felt that Tinsley put a lot of effort into her costume, and that she felt like after Tinsley left (Sonja’s house) …
Sonja never finishes that thought.
But continues “How bad could it have been living in that beautiful, sweet mansion? It wasn’t. I think it was more that I shadowed her, and she wanted to come into her own.”
Oh wait… was Tinsley living in a beautiful mansion somewhere that we didn’t know about? Here, all this time, MisRed thought Tinsley was living with Sonja? You know, with the no heat and the leaking pipes and the backed-up toilets and the brown ice.
Dorinda says she felt Sonja was very critical of Tinsley. Sonja tries to say that she was WORRIED about Tinsley. Dorinda says – maybe, but it came off as being critical.
Dorinda is right. Tinsley could do nothing right by Sonja. Sonja expected Tinsley to bow down and kiss Sonja’s feet for letting her stay in Sonja’s broke-down palace, and when Tinsley did her own thing, Sonja got her nose out of joint.
Sonja says that she always texts Tinsley to hang out, but Tinsley is always with her boyfriend. Dorinda tells Sonja that Tinsley and Scott broke up- Sonja says he heard that through the grapevine but didn’t want to say anything to Tinsley. Sonja says, “I didn’t want to say ‘I told you so’ because she went to live in that hotel when she could have been living at my place rent-free.”
Yeah, but the thing is, it’s not rent-free. Sonja expected A LOT of “payment” from Tinsley.
Then Sonja says, “You KNOW he’s paying for that hotel and you KNOW he bought my gift certificate.” Dorinda tries to dispute that.
MisRed aside: This exchange between Sonja and Dorinda brings up a topic that was addressed in the comments of my recap last week- who foots the bill for Tinsley? MisRed just did a little poking around… apparently Miss Tins is work $35million. How? Well, her father was a very successful real estate developer in Virginia, and her mother is a successful interior designer. Tins probably has some family money. Additionally, she was married to a Mortimer – so there’s Standard Oil money too- I’m sure she received a decent chunk of change in the divorce. In addition- Tinsley has a few successful business ventures of her own, she has a handbag line in Japan that is, supposedly, very successful and a clothing line and a line of home crap at Bed, Bath and Beyond and these goods are also used by a lot of hotels.
On the flip side, Sonja’s finances are, obviously, a disaster. To the best of MisRed’s knowledge, Sonja owns her “town house” worth $10 million. However, she still has not received any money from her ex-husband. Supposedly she is owed $3Million from him and $300,000 in back child support. Not sure why this hasn’t been settled, as he’s a Morgan and – friggin’ back up the Brinks Truck -there’s a lot of money there. Frankly, he probably chewed his own arm off to get away from Sonja, and her shenanigans ever since can’t be sitting well with the Morgan fam. Although, Sonja says she had successful businesses before she married Mr. Morgan, MisRed sees no evidence of this- as Mr. Morgan met Sonja when she was a hostess at an Italian restaurant- and not even the one with free salad and breadsticks.
MisRed aside concluded.
Sonja says that she can’t figure out WHY Tinsley would leave Sonja’s house and spend $10,000 on a hotel.
Two words, Sonja: Brown Ice.
AND, Sonja claims that Tinsley didn’t spend a dime when she was living with Sonja “Not one chocolate bar for Connor.” Tinsley didn’t buy ONE birthday gift for Sonja, she claims, and it was ONLY when Scott came on the scene that anything was being paid for.
Is Connor one of the interns to which Sonja forbade Tinsley to speak? Maybe if Sonja paid him he could buy his own chocolate.
THEN, in her interview Sonja says, “Listen if he’s (Scott, the ex-boyfriend, Coupon King) NOT paying, then I would say that’s a dumbass move.”
Take it from me, the First Lady of dumbass moves.
OMG. Sonja- YOU ARE GROSS.
Dorinda says that she doesn’t think that’s true and says that Tinsley bought that gift card for Sonja. Sonja says “I’ve known her a long time, Lovie. I knew she didn’t have a pot to piss in, that’s why I invited her to come live with me.” Dorinda disputes saying that Tinsley has family money and Sonja says that they don’t have $9,000 a month for a hotel kind of money. And that Tinsley likes to be with a guy and to be taken care of. Sonja says that she, unlike Tinsley, has to “very independent.”
Did Sonja get hit in the head? Sonja is, literally, pissing in a pot over at her place because her plumbing is backed up!!!!
Dorinda interviews that Sonja just can’t help herself and she shouldn’t be talking smack about Tinsley.
Dorinda asks if Sonja is going to the Hamptons the following weekend and Sonja says “I think. But where am I going to stay?” Well, MisRed is sure, Sonja, being so VERY INDEPENDENT, will figure it out.
You keep your mouth shut. And your legs too.
Dorinda tells Sonja to keep her mouth shut about Tinsley while in the Hamptons and Sonja agrees. This should be good.
We are not even 15 minutes into the episode, kids.
Lu meets Tins for a drink. Mother of God, what is Tinsley wearing?
It looks like a nun got into a fight with Teresa Giudice. But wait… Lu shows up with FRENCH BRAIDS.
No, wait. THIS is the Eyesore.
Is 5:25am too early for a cocktail? MisRed is asking for a friend.
Come to Mama
Tinsley said that she ordered wine without waiting for Lu because on the way to the restaurant Tins got into a texting fight with Scott. Tinsley says, in her interview, that she is really trying to be the girl that Scott fell in love with, and she hopes that he will just miss her enough to want her back.
Lu gives Tinsley some advice. Hang on, let MisRed get her popcorn. She tells Tins to NOT text Scott anymore and that she should say that she wants to, actually, SPEAK with him. Then suggests she fly out to see him- to surprise him. Lu launches into a story that she once surprised her ex-husband (The Count), and she went to his hotel room door dressed as a Moroccan Princess and he LOVED it. He talked about it for years.
Tinsley interviews that while it’s a cute story, she isn’t about to take relationship advice from LuAnn. LuAnn knew Tom for two seconds, forced marriage and then divorced 15 minutes later. MisRed is paraphrasing of course.
Tinsley says that it’s just an awkward, tense time and Lu says that Tins and Scott are “just at the beginning” and it shouldn’t be like this. Oh boy. Tinsley is like- Come on, your beginning went to an end very fast. Lu agrees and says she’s not proud of it. Tins says that it doesn’t really seem like Lu is that bothered by the break-up and that some people feel that Lu isn’t opening up about it enough and it’s hard to feel for her or care when Lu doesn’t even seem to care that much about it.
Lu looks pretty in her interview look… she still stole Bethenny’s hair.
Lu says that she’s doesn’t want to talk about Tom and she’s over it. Then she interviews that she is too raw and vulnerable to talk about Tom and the relationship, and she can’t talk to these women about it because they are her harshest critics. Tinsley says that here Lu threw this relationship in everyone’s faces and now she isn’t saying boo about it, and it seems like Lu has a wall up.
Lu is like “Oh, the Countess Wall, we’re gonna go there?”
Well, wouldn’t it, technically, just be a LuAnn wall now?
Technicality, MisRed realizes, but wasn’t Lu forced to give up the title of “Countess” when she married Tommy D’ag? Just sayin’.
OMG- then Tinsley says the same thing. Lu says “I will ALWAYS be the Countess. Is Queen Latifah, really a Queen?” Lu thinks that Tinsley is not coming from a place of love, but that she’s being mean.
Tinsley says she’s going to the Marathon that weekend to cheer Carole on. Lu says she wasn’t invited. Tinsley asks if it’s because she and Carole fought at the party. Lu says that they didn’t fight and that it was a “discussion.” Semantics.
We get a flashback to the previous night of Carole telling Lu to stop belittling her relationship with Adam, and that their relationship was more meaningful than Lu’s 7-month marriage. Lu says that Carole “had an affair with my niece’s boyfriend.”
In fairness, Adam was her niece’s EX-boyfriend.
Tinsley says that- Carole and Adams relationship seems to be a lot closer then Lu and Tom’s relationship. Lu says that Adam was just a “toy boy” Carole had for 3 years. Tins says that it was longer than Lu’s marriage. AW SNAP. Lu disputes this saying that she GOT married. And Carole and Adam, merely, dated. Ok, well, whatever, some people don’t want to get married- Carole being one of them. Tinsley tries to say that Carole actually likes Lu when Lu is being real and authentic. Lu asks if Carole is the judge of “authenticity?” UGH. Tinsley says she is just trying to help LuAnn.
Carole meets Dorinda and they go for a walk on The High Line. Carole has been panicked about the marathon, but she is finally starting to feel excited. Dorinda suggests that Carole wear a “Walkman.” Bahahahahahaahah. Carole is like- “The 1980’s are calling. They want their Walkman back.”
Maybe I could run with a phonograph.
Dorinda says that since Adam is running the marathon that she should just talk to Adam while they run. Carole explains that she and Adam run at grossly different paces, so they won’t be together. Carole says he has been a big support to her and maybe she made a mistake breaking up with him.
They sit and chat. Dorinda says that she went for a walk with Sonja the previous day and that Sonja is nuts. Carole is like- why would you even go for a walk with her? Dorinda explains that Sonja had told her that she wants to start fresh. Then Carole says “She told Eric that you looked really fat.” Carole says that Sonja talks out of both sides of her mouth. 100%. Dorinda says that Sonja, straight up, lies and bad-mouthing people is no way to build a friendship.
Carole is sad that Dorinda won’t be at the marathon, as Dorinda will be spending time with her daughter. Wait. MisRed thought Dorinda was going to make Carole a roast chicken and get 72 bottles of good wine and she and Carole were going to watch Ghost Hunters? Carole says that she has wondered if anyone was going to throw her a party after the fact. Dorinda offers to have a party for Carole, but Carole explains that Ramona beat Dorinda to it. Dorinda asks Carole where she is staying whilst in the Hamptons- and is Carole staying with Bethenny? Carole says she assumes she will as she is NOT staying with LuAnn.
This recap is too long.
MaryLou be prepared for your paycheck to bounce
Sonja is preparing for a “Wednesday Night Gay Party,” with her housekeeper, MaryLou, who seems to be a new addition. It isn’t clear whether MaryLou is an intern or someone Sonja was keeping in the basement with the old Wesson oil or someone she smuggled in from Costa Rica. It’s amazing what you can get through customs these days. Sonja says she’s been throwing these gay parties for about 12 years and they are “very important.” Marc Bouwer, arrives.
You may remember seeing Marc Bouwer on RHOBH this year- he seems to be the go-to designer for the poor and friendless- as he gave Rinna and Camille dresses when they were just getting started.
He is loaning Sonja a dress. Sonja says in her talking head that she knows she needs to spend more time with her girlfriends, but they haven’t been the greatest of friends to her, and she is feeling on the outs. She loves spending time with her gays, “They don’t judge me, it’s great.”
Psst, to have a friend, you have to BE a friend, Sonja and not a shit-talking-pot-stirrer. And, for the record, those gays ARE judging you. There is nothing more judgmental than an old queen.
Sonja doesn’t allow women at the gay parties because “women have an agenda.” Sonja says she is a man trapped in a woman’s body. Well, she definitely acts like a man-whore so MisRed will give her that. She says she’s MORE vulgar around them. Wow. Hard to believe that is possible.
Sonja says the last time she “wore a metallic, Dorinda said I had gained weight.” OH! Ok, now we know why Sonja said Dorinda was fat. Yup, right there on Sonja’s Woman Agenda.
The gay imported from the late 60’s says that Dorinda is very good at back-handed little digs, Sonja agrees saying that Dorinda runs hot and cold. She’s a friend, but then she’s not.
MisRed aside: No secret MisRed is a Dorinda fan. Say what you want about Dorinda, she’s a lush, she’s a chubby chaser, etc., but Dorinda seems like she is a fairly down-to-earth woman. She tries to be a good friend until she feels like she has been crossed, then she loses her sh*t.
MisRed aside, concluded.
The Selection at Lady Morgan’s House
Ugh, fast forward, MisRed can’t watch this anymore. No wonder Mr. Morgan is in hiding.
Bethenny is at her new apartment which is still being renovated, she’s checking things out. She has also moved her offices to the building right next door. She says she has been so involved with Puerto Rico that she isn’t feeling connected to her business at all. She breezes into her new office and immediately starts decluttering it.
She has hired someone to actually run her company. Then as quickly as she breezed in, she breezes out and all of her employees and exhale.
Dorinda goes to Fig & Olive, where Bravo must have some kind of deal for free food or something, to meet Tinsley. They debate whether or not to have a glass or wine at 11:30am. Halloween was the last time they saw each other, and Dorinda says, “Where Sonja told everyone I was fat.” Tinsley is like- What is wrong with her? A question for the ages.
WTF is wrong with her?
Dorinda says that she is, by nature, a forgiver and she showed up to her walk with Sonja ready to start fresh, but she was unprepared for the interaction. Dorinda is WARNING Tinsley to be prepared for the weekend, because Sonja talked about Tinsley horribly. Dorinda tells Tins the things that Sonja was saying, insinuating that Tinsley only returned to NYC to meet a man who would pay for everything- implying that Tinsley is a “kept woman.”
Get ready, we are taking Lady Morgan dowwwwwn
Tinsley is horrified to hear the things Sonja has been saying and that she thought they had gotten to a better place. She is pissed that Sonja is telling lies about her. Tinsley explains to Dorinda, when she returned to NYC, it wasn’t that she couldn’t pay for her own place, it was that Sonja was offering her a safe haven where she could get her life back together, etc.
Dorinda has had it with Sonja. She thinks Sonja is a bully and plans to confront her, in the Hamptons, about her lies and smack-talking. Tinsley isn’t great with confrontation she admits, but Dorinda asks her to back her up when it all goes down.
Just a couple of old hoes looking for some Street Meat.
Lu meets Sonja for a drink. Lu interviews that she has known Sonja for a long time and she knows all of her moods, etc. Sonja drives Lu nuts, but she considers her to be a friend.
Sonja asks the waiter to bring “The Countess” a glass of wine. Lu asks her to NOT call her that because SOME PEOPLE have a problem with it. “Can you imagine?” Lu says.
Can you just hurry up and place your order, Grandma?
Well, actually, yes. You, voluntarily, gave up your title when you married Tom. So you shouldn’t be called “Countess.” It’s stupid. It’s like Yolanda taking back the last name of her first husband- “Hadid” so that she can remain relevant by sharing a last name with Gigi and the udder one and the udder udder one. Desperate.
Lu asks, “Does Tinsley or Carole have three dance songs on iTunes under Countess LuAnn?” Well, MisRed should hope not. Why would they want to masquerade as Countess LuAnn? Carole is, technically, a Princess, which, last time MisRed checked out-ranked “Countess.”
Lu continues “Do they have a Pandora station under Countess LuAnn?” See comment above. Lu says that “Countess” will always be a part of who she is, it’s part of her “music” and her “brand.”
Money can’t buy you class. Indeed, it can’t.
Bahahaha. MisRed loves that LuAnn thinks that anyone takes her music seriously or believes she has any actual musical ability. And her “Brand” is in Ross Dress for Less. Not exactly Bergdorf’s or Barneys.
Lu says she considers it to be her hashtag. #Countess.
Ok, time for Sonja to spout some bullsh*t. She says that she “spoke to JPM” and that after 10 years, she has finally decided that she should rent out her townhouse and live elsewhere. That way she can make money with the rent and then she still has it for later. It’s her “best investment.” How much do you think it will cost to get that dilapidated hovel back up to code?
Sonja says it was so great when she and Lu were shacking up together- it was very different than when Tinsley moved in. Yeah, because Lu wouldn’t even sleep at Sonjas, she would do that walk of shame from whatever “street meat” she had ridden the night before and waltz in and have a cup of coffee. Tinsley actually moved in.
Lu tells Sonja that she had dinner with Tinsley and that she was MEAN, almost like Tins had a hint of Carole. Well, a little touch of Carole behind each ear can liberate one. Lu was insulted that Tinsley wanted her to open up about her feelings about Tom- but Lu says that it’s pretty obvious what went down with Tom- that he simply “wasn’t changing.”
Lu, here’s a little newsflash for you- from MisRed to you. People don’t change unless they WANT to change. You cannot go into a relationship thinking that you will change the person. And you were stupid to think that you were going to change a filthy pig like Tom, who can’t help but be a total smarmy pervert 24/7. Why is he 50 years old and never married? Because he is not marriage material, he is incapable of committing to one person, and is incapable of caring for another person more than he cares for himself.
Cheers to being a couple of old ho-bags!
Lu invited Sonja to stay with her in the Hamptons the following weekend.
Carole wakes up and loads the bus for the NYC Marathon- the day is finally here. Carole says that her late husband, Anthony, had run the marathon before they met. And he would mention from time to time that he had run it, so Carole went to check what Anthony’s “stats” were when he ran. She finds the information and she felt a little melancholy to see his name and time. She wishes she had recognized how amazing it was for him to have done that.
Carole just wants to finish the marathon, she’s not concerned about her time. Heather Thomson is also running and wishes Carole good luck.
Go get ’em MuthaF*cker! Holla!!!
Carole says she is more nervous to run this marathon than she was to cover the war in Afghanistan, she is the most scared she has ever been. Carole says it’s very different than other challenges she has had in her life because it’s really just her out there, without any real support. A few miles into the race, her hip is hurting and for some reason her knee is hurting…she just wants to take it one mile at a time.
Tinsley is so proud of Carole and wants to support her. At mile 25 Carole is struggling and is walking but she keeps going. She crosses the finish line and is so happy to hear her friends and family cheering her on.
Carol WON the NYC Marathon!!
Carole interviews that people used to call her husband Anthony a hero because he battled cancer. And Carole always hated that because she hated that he had to battle cancer. But he realizes that he was a hero after all because he ran the marathon. Not really following that line of thinking, surely cancer is a bigger battle than the marathon.. Carole feels like she has finally honored him in the way she should have.
Prince and Princess Radziwill
MisRed knows a lot of people don’t like Carole, but a lot of people do. If you haven’t read her book “What Remains” MisRed encourages you to do so. It will give you a lot of insight into Carol’s upbringing and her marriage and her husband’s cancer battle. MisRed read it several years ago and it’s a book that has stayed with me.
Next week: The girls head to the Hamptons. Lu tells Bethenny that she was right about Tom. We find out more of what’s at the center of Bethenny and Carole’s feud.
And Dorinda loses her sh*t all over Sonja.
Well… so far this season is off with a bang. It’s a lot to capture and MisRed appreciates your patience with these War & Peace length recaps. MisRed loves your comments- they make all of the pain worthwhile. xoxoxox Until next week: Stay Trashy!
