Articles for The Real Housewives of New York City Season 4

New season, new Housewife, new drama! I‘m all about it, because let‘s get real: The Real Housewives of New York are pretty much the best, right? First thing‘s first: New Housewife Cindy Barshop‘s babies are in weird, wine glass high chairs in the opening sequence. Luxury! And now: Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio! Grab a glass.Jill Zarin is back in the house, and Alex is still not having it. You can‘t just pretend nothing happened, Jill! Alex invites all the women to wear their wedding gowns, or a white dress, and put it on for the March for Marriage Equality. And then she left because things were just getting too rowdy for her taste. Read more »
So much is happening for the Housewives! Bethenny‘s new book is doing well, she‘s getting a talk show, Gretchen is releasing a single ... and none for Gretchen Wieners (Real Housewives of DC). You‘ve probably heard by now that Bravo announced its first official Housewives cancellation. The Real Housewives of DC has been canceled, making it the first Housewives series not to make it to season 2. Is anyone that surprised, though? [TVSquad] Read more »
The women are preparing for the Marriage Equality March, and Sonja has wedding dresses for them to wear just for the occasion. Whose day is it anyway? Sonja was asked to be the Grand Marshal and Alex was like, "I‘m on the host committee!" Good for them. Sonja wants it to be fun, Alex takes everything too seriously. Also, Alex thought Sonja made it about herself too much.Sonja asked to be the only person who spoke, according to Alex, and it wasn‘t up to Sonja, if you ask her. Alex has an issue with everything, and she will always bring it up whenever the mood strikes her. Alex was pissed that they cancelled Simon speaking "because [Sonja] wanted to be the only one." The bickering never ended, just as the homosexuals would have wanted. Read more »
Even after promising us there wouldn‘t be any new Housewives, we‘re hearing rumors that Bravo is continuing to cast in other cities. Also, people are buzzing about Jill Zarin‘s new look, and Gretchen Rossi‘s legal trouble. And finally, the moment you never knew you were waiting for: the release of Simon van Kempen‘s AWFUL song, "I Am Real."The Real Housewives of Where?According to Perez Hilton, Bravo has cast The Real Housewives of Scottsdale (Arizona) and has already started shooting, which is a lot further than a lot of Housewives they cast make it. The cast is rumored to include Alejandra Nash, wife of NBA star Steve Nash.  Read more »
LuAnn and Kelly are becoming better friends, so LuAnn opens up to Kelly about opening up and falling in love. Kelly‘s tired of being single, and LuAnn thinks it‘s because she doesn‘t trust people. LuAnn invites Kelly to "the Wine Connection," which is some wine event for singles and otherwise interesting people.Oh good, New Alex is meeting Sonja for lunch to "nip it in the bud." Sonja wore her coat and crazy Russian hat. Big fur hats are good for blocking long explanations and attempts to bury the hatchet. Sonja ripped on Simon a little more, and blamed him for why she threw Alex out. The women agreed to not talk about it anymore and move forward. Bring on the next fight! Read more »

The most important day in the history of civilization is upon us, at least that‘s what I assume based on the media coverage. Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s wedding is scheduled for Friday, April 29 at 11am London time (that‘s 6am ET and 3am PT, if you‘re interested in).  Read more »
Ewww Cindy Barshop‘s teeth are falling out. It‘s like a bad dream (literally. Have you had those dreams where your teeth fall out?). Cindy and Sonja meet designer Vivienne Tam and try on some dresses. Housewives doing what Housewives do best. But we‘re all just waiting for Sonja Morgan to fall off that horse.Sonja is having a party, so the guest list is in question as usual. Should she or should she not invite Ramona? Cindy is having a horse party thing in the Hamptons. It‘s too far away from Sonja‘s whatever in the Hamptons and ugh, can they just all fall off a horse? Read more »
Oh, there IS a pecking order. And said pecking order will be discussed tonight on The Real Housewives of New York. What‘s great about this show is that you can love a Housewife one week, and hate her the next. The alliances are constantly changing, in addition to who is being awful. Speaking of sometimes awful, Jill is back from Australia.Jill is ready to make a fresh start (renewal!) and she meets with Sonja, LuAnn, and Kelly to discuss that fresh start and What Happened in Quogue. I had almost forgotten about Ramona‘s "look at me I‘m shaking" moment. Kelly, who already hates Ramona, has decided to have lunch with her. To prepare, Kelly practices with Sonja playing the part of Ramona. Sonja was kind of a monster at the March for Equality, but her impression of Ramona was hilarious.  Read more »
The Real Housewives are starting to remind me of the Full House theme song, except that instead of there being a heart or a hand to hold onto "everywhere you look," there‘s a lawsuit or a foreclosure. Remember when Danny Tanner crashed DJ‘s "makeout party"? Good times.Before we get to the "legal woes, etc." part of this post, let‘s just have a moment of silence for the amazing wax-like pregnancy photo of Kim Zolciak and Kroy Bierman. Read more »
Last week on The Real Housewives of New York, some of the Housewives made up, just in time for some new feuds to begin. New Housewife Cindy Barshop is making waves! To start things off, Ramona Singer knows what people want, so she is modeling for all her products. It‘s going better than the runway walk.Jill meets Cindy at her apartment to discuss having kids, and making enemies. Jill is pleased that Cindy is willing to go up against Ramona. Cindy will not accept Ramona‘s crappy behavior, which all the other women have learned to accept. They shall live in fear no more. Read more »
Sonja arrives from the gym in another silly hat to meet LuAnn, who proposes a girls‘ trip to Morocco. Did this idea come from Sex and the City 2? LuAnn promises it is sophisticated and she will be speaking to the Minister of Tourism. That‘s a job! No one except LuAnn knows what to expect but they all agree that a trip would be fun. Would it? Jill is hesitant because of her fight with Ramona. To help make amends, LuAnn gives Ramona the precious koala bear souvenir. LuAnn tries to teach Ramona some manners but she will not be told to hold in how she FEELS. Ramona agrees to try to talk to Jill. Read more »
The New York Housewives are going to Morocco! Don‘t worry, LuAnn has already learned how to say "darling" in Moroccan. No, not Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey‘s baby, Moroccan--the language! The brunettes travel together and arrive first. The accommodations are stunning. The blondes arrive the next day, ready for battle. Ramona needs white cotton sheets, feather pillows, and her pinot grigio at all times. Ramona also asks that the staff unpack her bags for her in the list of needs she e-mailed beforehand. Even The Countess does not do that! Ramona has a rider now? Read more »
The ladies are still in Morocco for this episode, and last time we saw them, a psychic was giving Ramona some bad news. Ramona, all loaded with pinot grigio, does not want to hear it, and takes out her frustration on the other women. It sparks a big controversy. Is the other woman LuAnn? Does Sonja know something Ramona doesn‘t? Has everyone just had too much to drink?Sonja has definitely had enough--Ramona‘s reading causes her to come unglued. Ramona apologizes to Sonja that her marriage is so awesome, and Sonja‘s ended. That‘s what friends are for.  Read more »
After the Ramona and Jill blow out, Jill is shaking, upset that Ramona wouldn‘t take responsibility for any of her behavior. LuAnn, Kelly, Cindy sit with her to reaffirm that "it‘s not OK." Jill decides that she‘s Team Brunettes from now on, and it will be "a rotten day in hell" before she makes nice with Ramona. The blondes console Ramona, and make LuAnn get Ramona her IV of pinot grigio. Alex and Sonja just really want LuAnn out because she does not share their towheaded sameness. In the end, they agree to move forward with their trip plans. Read more »
The Real Housewives of New York are back from Morocco, but they took all their drama with them. Since that psychic said something about Mario and another woman, Ramona plans some romantic time for just the two of them. But only one of them shows up on time. Alex and Simon get some "just the two of us" time, Bill Withers style. Simon bought Alex an long, lace ... robe? and put a basket full of panties on his crotch. Alex tries on the different weird lingerie Simon picked out, and they ended on the best one, in my opinion. Then Mario finally shows up, and it‘s not exactly movie-sexy. To completely ruin the mood, Ramona tells Mario about what the psychic said and asks him what he thinks. Ramona and Mario agree that there is no one else. Ramona keeps badgering Mario about whether or not he‘s having a good time, and his shirt is off by this point. Ramona doesn‘t do sexy well.  Read more »
First comes love, then comes marriage, now we follow it up with stars strutting around with their babies in carriages. Yesterday we quizzed you on love triangles that take place on the small screen. Today, we‘ll see how much you know about the actors and actresses who are proud parents and their celebrity babies.Taking How Much Do You Know About Celebrity Babies? will prove if you‘ve been paying attention to who gave birth to whom. With the help of hints and baby pictures, choose the celebrity mom or dad we‘re referring to.  Read more »
Last week‘s episode was so awesome. It‘s the kind of classic Real Housewives episode I really enjoy, where it‘s just all about parties and people being ridiculous, and less about the fabricated drama. This week‘s episode is equally silly, as it‘s all about Housewives and Simon bullying each other on the internet. "Mean Tweeting," is what they‘re calling it. Simon is ready to make good with Jill and the other wives. Simon is a character I just don‘t understand on this show, but I do like how often he dresses like a lesbian. I‘m with Kelly, it is awkward and weird, but I think that‘s mostly on Simon. And for the record, I don‘t think the weirdest thing about the situation is Simon asking Jill out to lunch to talk about things. I just don‘t understand Simon and Alex as humans.  Read more »
It‘s Friday again, which means it‘s time to look back (again!) on another crazy week of television. We learned of a blast-from-the-past twist on Big Brother this year. We had a winner on The Voice. And weird things happened on the So You Think You Can Dance stage. Oh, and yes, you‘re right, there is a challenge coming -- this week‘s What Happened on TV? quiz! Read more »
Agreed, the point of reality TV competitions is to give the spotlight to a bunch of unknowns who are hoping to make it big in Hollywood. But they wouldn‘t really get anywhere without the guidance of professionals. We‘re dedicating this to the hosts and judges of reality television, who have given their support to dreamers all over the country. There‘s Big Brother‘s Julie Chen, the judging panel of America‘s Next Top Model, probably not Idol‘s Simon Cowell, and more.   Read more »
The episode is off to a good start, as Sonja is wearing her giant Russian fur hat again. And Ramona brought her bedazzled bustier! They‘re shopping for Sonja‘s Burlesque-themed party. Is it themed that way for the movie starring Cher and Christina Aguilera? Please say yes. The Real Housewives are doing my favorite things to watch tonight: shopping and throwing parties. Avery brings up a good point regarding the burlesque outfit theme: "you‘re not twenty." Don‘t tell Ramona that, it will ruin her delusions! A woman (man?) dressed identically to Sonja helps Sonja out with her eyelashes.  Read more »
Beauty, class, elegance, The Countess‘s new music video. We‘ve all seen it by now, or at least clips, but now it‘s time for the "making of" special. LuAnn says yes to everything except the Hummer. She has standards, after all. "Can we get a jet? It says the word, ‘jet,‘ in the song."Ramona and Sonja work out together so that Ramona can tell Sonja about the letter Avery wrote. Ramona has decided not to be in LuAnn‘s music video because she wants to set a good example. There were MEN on a BED in the last one. All of a sudden Ramona is worried about what goes "out there forever." Ramona convinced Sonja not to do the music video, either.  Read more »
Morocco, music videos, awkward lunch and brunch dates, it has all come down to this. It‘s the Real Housewives of New York City Season 4 finale! The episode opens with LuAnn listening to her latest masterpiece, "Chic C‘est La Vie." Enter Natalie Cole. How did they pull that off? Natalie Cole confesses to having heard "Money Can‘t Buy You Class," then agrees to go to LuAnn‘s anniversary party with Jacques, AND SING. Natalie! On one condition: that she sing together with The Countess!Simon and Alex meet Ramona and Mario for ... cocktails? wine? conversation? Whatever it is. In a moment of foreshadowing, Ramona admits to wishing they‘d had a second child (instead of a dog). Interesting that this subject should get wedged into their conversation. Sonja Morgan steps in with Hot Brian, revealing that this is a dinner party.  Read more »
Your body is going through a change! You may notice that you have bigger boobies, you feel tired when you visit your friend‘s townhouse, you lack your usual interest in Pinot Grigio. This is all normal. Every woman goes through it. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to find out what‘s going on:1. Tell a lot of people you might be pregnant. Just go with your gut on this one, don‘t think about it too much.  Read more »
Blondes vs. Brunettes, it all comes to a head starting with Part 1 of the Season 4 Reunion! Almost everyone started out in a good mood except Alex, who was immediately pissed. And Ramona immediately told Andy that she has her period right now. Ughhhhhh nooooooo. Here are, from what I could discern, my favorite moments from Part 1 of the RHONY Reunion. 90% of it was just the women talking over each other.It‘s been so long that I almost forgot about the first fight of the season: Alex vs. Sonja at the March for Marriage Rights! Alex feels like aliens took Sonja away for a few weeks then brought her back. Oh, that thing that happens.  But it‘s because of that fight that marriage equality passed in New York! Of course! Read more »
Ultimate Rudeness, Part Two! Can you handle it? I‘m not sure I can. But here goes, The Real Housewives of New York continue their super-sized reunion. It can be quite interesting, when you can actually understand what they‘re saying, to hear what the women think of the show itself, rather than acting within the show. Here are the highlights:The Housewives get downright rude right away. They start talking about the kids, and then it really got Blondes vs Brunettes when Jill made fun of Ramona‘s intimate massage scene. Ramona has opted to blame Avery on her not participating in LuAnn‘s video.  Read more »
I know, I know, this article‘s title doesn‘t make much sense. "What‘s so real about reality TV?" you might ask. "It‘s fake situations involving not-so-fake people. I don‘t watch that sort of thing!"And yet we still do, which explains why Heidi Montag remains as (supposedly) relevant as ever. It‘s also the reason why we watch the Kardashians make an issue out of birth control. And also the reason why Team Cupcake exists. And why we hate Rachel on Big Brother. And why Paris Hilton survived that sex tape and managed to run for president of the United States. Read more »
It looks like The Real Housewives of New York City will be a little less crowded when the show returns for its fifth season (or so it seems).  Bravo has finally released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter confirming rumors that Cindy Barshop,  Alex McCord, Jill Zarin, and Kelly Killoren Bensimon will not be returning next year. Read more »
Now that Bravo has officially confirmed that Cindy Barshop, Alex McCord, Jill Zarin, and Kelly Killoren Bensimon will not be returning for season 5 of The Real Housewives of New York City, another controversy has worked its way into the tabloids. Rumor has it that Ramona Singer was the one responsible for Jill‘s departure on the show so that she could make room for own her friends. Read more »
If you‘re not too busy planning your own Beverly Hills-style Game Night from Hell, why not take a few minutes to find out what‘s new with some of our favorite ‘wives? Kim Zolciak is Engaaaaged!After having their first child together in May, 26-year-old Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann has decided to make an honest woman of Kim, 33. Congratulations to the happy couple, and I‘m putting this in the same sentence because it‘s THAT important: Will we or WILL WE get to see the wedding on The Real Housewives of Atlanta?  Read more »
Unfortunately for modern music consumers, it‘s only too well-known that cast members from the Real Housewives franchise often have devious desires to use their respective shows as a platform to promote worthless music careers.  Read more »
The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps and her mile-long legs stopped by to co-anchor with Greg Kelly on Good Day New York this morning. LuAnn was there on official business, promoting the New York teen adoption agency, "You Gotta Believe." But she also assured anxious viewers that she is not one of the four women of Real Housewives of New York City that Bravo dropped the axe on.  Read more »
One wife wines, another one whines, and one Richards sister talks about the other. Oh yes, it‘s a typical day in Real Housewives land!Let Her Cup Runneth Overflow with PinotOne of the Real Housewives of New York City‘s few remaining stars, Ramona Singer, has been accused of acting like a diva (shock!). It seems that not only has Ramona been bringing her own bottle of her Ramona Pinot Grigio to the restaurants she visits, but she is also demanding that upscale restaurants include her product on the menu while her show is shooting. She, of course, denies such willful behavior.  Read more »
Whether the housewives are defending strippers or denying accusations of being strippers, they really know how to bare all.  Read more »
It‘s Tuesday, and last night the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills went to Vegas.  Here‘s the latest on what‘s going on with one RHOBH star who probably won‘t be hitting Sin City anytime soon, plus more from the other crazy realms of the Real Housewives: Read more »
Despite reports earlier today that she‘d checked out, People says that Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards is still in rehab, and received a visit from her sister Kyle today. And People‘s anonymous source on the matter doesn‘t sound very optimistic:"She‘s doing okay," the source tells the mag. "Everyone is hoping for the best."We hope, for her sake and ours (she better be at this season‘s reunion!), that the best happens and Kim makes a full recovery. Read on for more of the latest from the land of the Housewives: Read more »

These days it seems that every Bravo Housewife feels entitled to her own spin-off show. Bravo currently airs only one successful spin-off, and that‘s former Real Housewives of New York City Bethenny Frankel‘s show, Bethenny Ever After. Our question for today: Which other housewives are rumored to be getting their own shows, and more importantly, which ones actually deserve it? (And no, being on Celebrity Apprentice does not count.) Read more »
