Two reunion shows down, one more to go. And I have to say that these have been actually better than the series. How's that? Well in an unprecedented three-parter we've gotten a rather authentic look at those gals removed from any of the goofy scenarios we've seen during the season. Awkward to watch at times definitely but what we get is these ladies being honest, accessible, and dare I say it, they are being "real". Weird, huh? I thought the Sonja Morgan section was a needed calmness after the Bethenny/ Jill drama and right before the Kelly insanity. Sonja's definitely emerged as my favorite--- funny, self-deprecating, horny, and rather normal. On the other couch and at the opposite end of the normal scale we have bat shit crazy Kelly Bensimon. When it was her turn to weigh in on what happened on "Scary Island" she took the oddest counter attack by saying she'd been the victim of systematic bullying and was forced by Bravo to go on that trip. Andy Cohen's calm attempts to tell her that wasn't true made zero impact. There's no way she came up with that bullying notion on her own. Picture it--
Kelly's in her downtown NYC apartment doing cartwheels in front of that fiberglass horse she stole from The Met while eating a handful of jelly beans. There's a knock at the door. Who could it be? Al Sharpton? Bethenny Franklin? Gwenneth Paltrow, Madonna? The tooth fairy? No, it's a Bravo!!!! Bravo showed up at the door with orders to abduct her. Kelly flings open the door with a "Hiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeee" just as Bravo fires a stun gun at her wonky left boob then throws a giant net on top of her. Down she goes all 6' 10" of her. Bravo put her in a cab bound for the airport and the next thing she knows, Kelly's in a jeep on St Johns demanding unprocessed foods like gummy bears and blow pops. Bravo also kidnapped her children and told her that she doesn't go along with the trip that she'll never see those kids again. Or worse, Bravo will force Kelly to wear knee-length shorts. The horror! That's probably how it went down, right?
Back to the show, Kelly went on and on about how she was systematically bullied and as the others called bullshit on her, Kelly got up and cat-walked off the set. Cue the Godfather music. I thought the whole place was going to go up in flames as Kelly tried to argue her unarguable point.
Round two ended with Kelly fleeing the evil Bravo's set. Wow! Just wow. Can episode three top this? Somehow I imagine it will will as we haven't seen hot-flashing Ramona unleashed yet. Thursday it is......
In other housewives news, I watched the first ten minutes of The New Jersey show and turned it off. I don't care. Danielle and her back-having goons make my skin crawl.... I don't know if I can watch this show anymore. I'll try and give it another try later if I can stomach it.
Lastly, I know my comment section has been feisty lately. I don't monitor your remarks- you're free to say what you like but all I ask is that you be respectful to each other. These reality TV postings poke fun at the antics of attention-starved celebrity wannabes. I want EVERYONE to feel free to comment and not feel discouraged like their views or opinions will get clobbered. I'm so thrilled each and every time a comment is left here. I want the comment section to be lively and fun, not a hate-fest. That's not what I want this site to be. Satchels of Gold!
