Yes, it’s been a decade since The Real Housewives Of New York City premiered (following the OG The Real Housewives Of Orange County), and a lot of shit has gone down. While some of the original cast wrecks have gone Down Under (Alex McCord, we hardly knew ye…I know that sounds like she died. She’s just in Australia), the show is just as bonkers as ever thanks to divorce, criminal activity and booze…and the trailer for the upcoming tenth season shows nothing has changed.
People says the show will keep the same cast as last season, which is honestly a feat in itself. Tinsley Mortimer (zzzzz), Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, Ex-Countess Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and Sonja Morgan will once again be around to show what’s the hot gossip…hmmmm, what ever could THAT be?! Before we get to the hot mess herself, it did seem like Bethenny’s relief efforts are clearly documented and kind of gave me the feels. It also seems like Carole’s boy toy is shagging another chick, so she decides to run a marathon…I don’t care if I got left at the altar, you will never see me cope with a broken heart by running a marathon.
It also seems like Bethenny and Carole start sparring this season, which is to be expected as those two were running a record for number of seasons Bethenny has been able to be friends with someone and not shriek at them. In other news, Dorinda’s a drunk, and Jill Zarin grieves for her deceased husband in front of Bravo’s cameras. NOW ON TO THE GOOD PART!
The Ex-Countess wonders to her daughter why she ever got married, and next thing we know, she’s in the news for going vigilante on the Palm Beach PD after they caught her in the wrong hotel room. The best part is when they film her in the back seat of a car wistfully staring out the window like she’s Lauren Bacall in those Tuesday Morning commercials from the 90s. Lu gazes out and barks into her iPhone, “I’ve been traveling, I’ve been to prison, and I just want to be close to home.” Sigh, I feel like that’s just the sign that you did spring break really well, Lu.
The rest of the trailer is standard middle-aged screaming women fare, but two parts concerned me: Dorinda did not make it nice by sticking her face in that cake, and Lu seems ready to go HAM on some mystery woman for calling her a convict. If that’s what sends her over the edge, we need to deadbolt the locks to Camp Dlisted because I’m pretty sure I call her a convict at least four times a day. Ok, fine, four times an hour.
