Move one step at a time
by Ashley Thompson
Dorinda, Ramona, Sonja, Carole, LuAnn, Bethenny and new girl, Tinsley, are baaaack! And apparently the women didn’t really keep in contact over the summer break. So now we get to play catch up.
Bethenny is meeting with reality tv star and realtor Fredrik Eklund. Her divorce settlement was signed and she got her Tribeca apartment back and now she wants to sell it. For $6,995,000. And Fredrik got her an all cash full offer in less than two days. I bet she’s glad they’re friends.
LuAnn is planning her wedding and has dwindled her guest list down to 250 people. But none of the other Housewives are invited, except Dorinda. While she has some nice things to say about her fiancée, she actually has more flattering compliments for his upper east side home.
Sonja has a sex advice off broadway play. Because… well… why not, I guess. She’s also selling her house.
Ramona is still looking for love and digging up information on LuAnn’s fiancée, Tom. Because Ramona dated him, Sonja slept with him and Bethenny caught him cheating. She’s even gone as far as to call Tom’s ex-girlfriend in California for information. And now she’s throwing around gossip that LuAnn tried to cheat on Tom in Palm Beach over the summer. When they meet for lunch, Ramona only has underhanded things to say and her back handed compliments do not sit well with LuAnn. Yet somehow they can toast to LuAnn’s happiness and pretend like they don’t hate each other.
Carole is living with her boyfriend, Adam, two cats and a dog. She considers it “shacking up”, not “living together”. Because there’s a difference. She’s also obsessed with the election and let’s just say that things did not turn out the way she anticipated. Her reasoning is, “Once a journalist, always a journalist”.
