Shall we start taking bets now on which of the current HWs will be the first in saying something offensive to one of the newbies?

It's a toss up between Sonja and Ramona, but Ramona edges out Sonja just a tad because she often doesn't realize what she says is offensive. Sonja knowa and plans that sh*t. 

On another note, I'm so glad Dorinda isn't coming back. I might watch the entire season this year. Watching someone be so cruel became too much.

I might be bored by sober housewives. TBD.

Leah and Sonja will have that covered.

“What happened to class?”

That just about says it - this show is swirling at the drain of tackiness and idiocy just like the ones I’ve stopped watching.

I really miss the days of Ramonja yacht hopping and 🐢 time. I even miss Lu falling in bushes and Sonja's updo. 

I think Leah is really vulgar and has brought a dark seediness to the show. Her scenes look pretty dreadful.

I had no idea they went to Salem on their Fall cast trip. I live up that way and didn't hear a word about it!!

ETA: When you can hear a photo 🐢 hehehehehe

I see Leah is still a tryhard.

Ramona talking about class and elegance is something.

It wouldn't be RHONY if Luann and Sonja weren't fighting over some guy.

I agree with this 💯 x 💯 times.

Some of this looks like good entertainment and other parts look just skanky and gross.

I really am tired of all the boobage across the RH shows.

I was excited about Ebony coming on, but based on the trailer I’m not sure how she’ll present herself on the show.

Somone else commented in the Bethenny thread that she announced her engagement the same day the trailer dropped - definitely not a coincidence.

When I saw this was coming back on May fourth I got all giddy, then watching the trailer and seeing what looks like a repeat of last season the giddy turned to disappointment...  Leah gets drunk, Leah calls the OG's 'old', Leah makes crass remarks, etc.  I know I said I wouldn't watch this season if Leah is in the cast but desperation drives me back to this once again.  (I don't know for how long)  There's something about Leah I just don't like.  She seems like a spoiled 16 yr old who is always acting out to get attention.  (is acting out the right term? That doesn't sound right for some reason) 

I don't understand the new woman's problem with the use of 'help'.  You hire people to help you, right? This sounds like someone's 'trying to be offended' for camera time.  Other than the obvious ones, I have no idea what's wrong to say and what's right in today's world! (and I never want to hurt anyone's feelings or offend them)

https://nypost.com/2021/03/23/rhony-season-13-trailer-is-a-hot-mess-nudity-and-hoes/

from the article:

Though this season was filmed during the pandemic, you wouldn’t know it from the trailer: There are no masks in sight, even though cast and members tested positive for COVID-19, halting production several times. 

Things get intense for Morgan, 57. As she yells and gets physical with production, Singer laments her excessive drinking. Though de Lesseps, 55, relapsed last season, she had a sober coach while filming this time around, according to Page Six. 

But some things never change: Morgan is still fighting with de Lesseps over a guy — most likely the Countess’ ex-husband, 54-year-old Tom D’Agostino — whom Morgan maintains she had first. It looks like Lu has moved on — this time to a blond man named Garth, whom she makes out with in the teaser. 

Former cast member Heather Thomson, 50, who starred on the show from Season 5 to 7, is seen in several of the shots, fueling rumors that she’s returning to the franchise.

Why the cast didn't enjoy filming with Heather

I actually forgot that she came back. That timing was was definitely off, with Dorinda leaving. 

 

Heather always had that weird prissiness about her that I never liked. I can't say I wholeheartedly disliked her but the prissiness (wake UP, get UP) combined with her desire to come off like a street hood (don't tell me anything motherf*cker) really bugged me. UGH.

I kind of can't wait to see the Leah showdown (rubs hands together) 😄

I can 100% believe that Heather got herself into some condescending faux pas meaning to be benevolent. However, Leah is a toxic sludge pile island composed of plastic, fatberg, and heavy metals actually poisoning everything around her so I'm always going to be skeptical of anything coming from her and never want to side with her. I'll wait and see.

Agree. Heather hasn't always been perfect but she is way better than Leah. And I can totally see Leah acting afool for some camera time and Heather calling her out.

The only thing I can think of is they are single and have money.  I think that's their only criteria.  For some of them, like Bethy, "single" was optional.

Without context, it's hard to say exactly, but since it's Ramona, I'm probably right. I'm guessing Eboni's dislike of Ramona saying "the help," is that it sounds dehumanizing. Yes, you do hire people to help you, but they're not "the help." I wouldn't be surprised if Ramona didn't bother to learn the names of her staff. Or that she sees them all as interchangeable, so even if she did learn their names, it wouldn't stick because they're just there to do her bidding.

Ramona said "I get my help wrong" when she called one of the staffers helping serve a meal in her home the wrong name. To be fair, I think they call in hospitality for filming dinner scenes and everyone except for Eboni appeared to be blonde and wearing a mask. I don't think these are people regularly in Ramona's employ. She's made some gaffes but I think they blew this one a little out of proportion.

Agreed.  I don't think Ramona is a racist...I think she's an elitist.

Neither is good for mankind, IMO, but I do give Ramona props for being socially open minded.  I recently rewatched S1-3 and a bit of S4.  I can't recall the episode but Ramona ond others were talking about someone being gay and marrying.  Ramona was the first to chime in - if that's what they want and it makes them happy, go for it!  

I know Ramona is a Republican but I think mostly for economic policy reasons. She's definately a liberal in other areas.

She might align most closely with libertarians...do what you want so long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

"Libertarianism is a political philosophy and movement that upholds liberty as a core principle. Libertarians seek to maximize autonomy and political freedom, emphasizing free association, freedom of choice, individualism and voluntary association." Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarianism

I am looking forward to this season to see discussions about race among all the women. I also hope they show the effects of the pandemic on NYC.  Devastating.  

Interesting that Ramona was on the open-restaurants bandwagon for months and months. She talks somewhere about the risk in comparison to the devasting effects closing has on people in other ways, depression, suicide, bankruptcy.  

Leah was on the other end in the spring/summer but this fall she has gotten on the open-restaurants kick as well and she and Ramona seem to be in a reasonable place. I wonder if she took a nod from Ramona.

I feel Ramona does her homework - at least better than the others and makes relatively informed decisions.

I generally like Ramona, but I do NOT like the elitist side of her. Having said that, she ain't the only one. She's just more transparent about it. She doesn't filter herself like the others, and this makes her more authentic.

And, that is one of the reasons I do like her.  What is that?? An infinity circle of like/dislike/neutrality toward Ramona?

https://pagesix.com/2021/04/08/andy-cohen-says-2-housewives-are-upset-over-wwhl-kids-special/

“First of all, I will say I heard from two moms yesterday saying, ‘Why wasn’t my daughter included?'” Cohen said on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy on Wednesday. ” … It was a lot just to have 13 people.”

While Cohen, 52, didn’t name the women who called him about the supposed slight, he did confirm that “Real Housewives of New York City” star Sonja Morgan was not one of the angry mothers.

“I would have loved to have Quincy,” he gushed of Morgan’s daughter. “She’s not, she’s never been on the show. So I, I wouldn’t even ask.”

I think I'll pass on the "kids" special. No interest in seeing big lips Brielle, track suit Brooks, the Manzo boys and Briana who is married to the former marine who flipped out and cursed at another cast member's mother over a sofa.  The only way that this show could be worse would be if he included Hamlin girls. Avery and Ally and Lu's  daughter I think would be interesting.

I'm getting old. I've been a Bravo watcher since the early days with Project Runway.  I used to like Andy and gave him props for running a network that was more culturally "open" than the major networks.  I still think Bravo has had a tremendous - and mostly positive - impact on certain things.

But, now-a-days, Andy just skeeves me out. 

Just because he likes to bang young men, doesn't mean the rest of us want to be part of that ride. Ugh. Go sell yourself and your sexual interests on some porn channel or something. Just keep it out of the Bravosphere.

Oh, and how he manipulates cast members has become more and more apparent the last few  years (to me, anyway), and me no likey.

I'm not sure I dislike Andy in his hosting jobs (reunions and WWHL). I think he does a good job with both, but I don't think I care for him as a person or Bravo executive any more.

Well, he was in Disney productions and let’s just say the knife ran away with the spoon 😆 He was under Disney NDA and couldn’t tell me any of the “magic” but I saw the show enough times to figure out that the Beast wore a special breakaway mask and costume for the transformation scene and the actor was strung up on cables and flown around the stage. Chip was pushed around in a little mirrored cart to make it look like he was just a face on a teacup. Other than that it was pretty straightforward stagecraft, mostly smoke, lights and lack of light to hide the magic ☺️ It was kind of the same with Lion King, they used a lot of light and lack of light and distraction tactics.
