SHUT UP! - Real Housewives of New York Reunion (Part 1)

Good morning, friends and fellow Bravo fans!

Part 1 of the Real Housewives of New York Reunion was crazy. I think it might have been the most aggressive, loud, and off the rails reunion ever. And that's saying something!

First, let's talk about Andy losing it and telling all of the 'wives to shut the eff up. Hilarious! I've always wondered how he gets through these reunions without exploding, but this time he just couldn't contain it. If you haven't seen it, here's the link: http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-york-city/season-4/videos/the-wives-just-dont-shut-up/

Now, I gotta address Kelly. Poor, delusional Kelly. She really doesn't know what comes out of her moth from one minute to the next, does she? I loved that Sonja called her out on her comments about Sonja's home, and of course, Kelly denied it and said she didn't say anything wrong. Even after Sonja repeated it, verbatim, she didn't take responsibility. Guess that's because in Kellyland, words evaporate into thin air after you say them and no one ever remembers the past or has feelings. Because that's so 1970's!

Alright, on to Miss Cindy. Now, I actually think Cindy is a genuinely nice person. But that's kind of her downfall. During the reunion, she couldn't compete with the craziness so she just got angry and pouty. No bueno, Cindy. If you wanna play in this sandbox, you gotta play by the rules. And the rules are, there are no rules. For Cindy to think that these ladies are going to show her any type of respect or give her any kind of credit is pretty naive. You gotta remember, Cin, they were here first. Not that I agree with it, it's just the way it is. But I did enjoy Cindy telling Luann not to tell her what to do, that was fun.

Next up, Jill vs. Ramona - Round 56. Seriously, these women have been at it since season 1. Can we say: lost cause? You two are never going to be friends, let's be real. I think they are actually in cahoots to keep the crazy going so they both remain on the show. Or not. Who cares? It's DRAMA! Anywhoo, Ramona's best line was that she still gets her period, which keeps her looking young, therefore she doesn't need a "liquid lift"! LOL! Did anyone else catch that? You know Jill did. Speaking of Jill, the venom was flowing for sure. She needs to calm down and get her digs in like Luann, sly and under the radar. Jill's outbursts only make the target on her back bigger. We are now all sick of Jill's mean-girl routine. As Jill would say, we're done!

Luann, Countess, LuLu, whatever her name is this week, was putting on her victim beret for the night. Forgive me for not feeling sorry for someone who literally treats people as if they are beneath her. I have no sympathy for her, and I was kind of glad Ramona brought up Luann's daughter. Here's why: Luann's daughter is no angel, and neither is Luann. It perfectly illustrates Luann's whole persona - the Countess, class and etiquette expert, perfect mother - really is just a house of cards. It's a fact, her daughter has been filmed doing some not so classy things ... look it up. I actually feel bad for Luann's kids, they don't seem to be close to her at all, unless you count shopping for skimpy cocktail dresses close. Luann's marriage to the Count was brought up and again, Ramona says it was an open marriage. Bethenny also eluded to this in past reunions/seasons. Why can't Luann just give up the charade and say YES, the Count and I had an understanding ... or whatever the classy way of saying it would be. Come on, LuLu, we see your true colors.

Sonja is finally back on my good side and I'm so happy. She seems like a genuine person, but unlike Cindy, knows how to bring the crazy and when to reel it in. She knows exactly which sandbox she's in, and she plays the game pretty well. Sonja's really harmless, not out to get anyone, and has fun in the process. What's not to love? Well, I could do without seeing her undies/lack thereof, but I'll give her a pass because she makes me laugh. At the beginning of the season, she was behaving strangely, and now we know why. Don't scare us like that again, Son!! You stay fun and bubbly and you'll have fans for life.

Alex was on point last night. Even though she did interrupt and interject at times, like I said, there are no rules. And I find it funny that the brunettes were all on the same page about silencing Alex. Here's what, brunettes, her blog says it all. You can't shush that. So speak on, Alex. You speak the truth, and you don't take any crap from any of these ladies. You're not afraid to admit when you're wrong, which certain people just don't understand. One of the best exchanges of part one was Alex telling Cindy ... um ... what may possibly help her relax? LOL, awkward but funny. I also thought it was funny that Jill had to be told (by Alex) to say the effing bitch comment to her face. You would think Jill of all people would have no problem doing just that. But we know now that Jill is a coward. She'll wait till you're gone to make her rude comments, and she won't address things face to face unless it's convenient for her. Otherwise, she'll avoid it like the plague.

Which brings me to Bethenny! Who knew she was on the show this season? Oh yeah, she wasn't. But Jill keeps dragging out the Bethenny card to prove how much she's changed. Newsflash, Jill, you haven't. And Bethenny still doesn't want anything to do with you. Jill has the nerve to say that Alex and Ramona never wanted Jill and Bethenny to make up, which is just plain not true. Ramona did try in New York. By the time they went to Scary Island it was too late. That's what Jill fails to understand. When you tell someone you no longer want to be friends with them, not once, but multiple times, you can't be mad when they no longer want anything to do with you. No matter how many times you apologize. It's over because you ended it. Now leave Bethenny out of it, and move on.

Part 2 will be even more insane and I cannot wait. Thank you, Bravo, for making me smile and escape from an otherwise melancholy and sad couple of days.
