The New York Wives

So what did y'all think about this week's episode. After I watched I (like the loser I am- ha!) read their blogs on Bravo's website. It seems that the night of Kelly's explosion, Ramona called Jill to tell her about it. She asked Kelly to leave to go home and get help and asked Jill to meet her at the airport to help her as she really needed a friend who understands the group dynamics. Jill didn't take Ramona seriously so Bethenny also go on the phone to explain that this was a truly serious situation and that Kelly really needed Jill to meet her in NYC at the airport. Jill never once mentioned her plan to "surprise" the women during those conversations. And she was fully versed on the situation. Instead of meeting Kelly to help her, she went out of her way to do what we saw. So that's a little background for y'all.

Even before I knew all that, I thought Ramona did the most responsible thing she could have done in that lose lose situation. Everyone made a big deal about Ramona asking Jill to leave, and perhaps she did off camera. But from what I saw, there wasn't any major "leave now" happening. It was obvious that Jill needed to leave to her and everyone else. But again, maybe there are parts not shown during the episode?

I tend to click away when major drama (ie: Kelly) comes on the screen and then I miss parts before I click back. The last two weeks I've not done that of course but I think I missed the explanation of why Jill was doing an ice skating routine wearing an actual ice skating dress. So please fill me in- what was that all about? What was the point? Also, is the Jennifer woman a new housewife or just a side friend? She's not in the intro or listed on Bravo's page but she pops up a lot lately. Hopefully she is Kelly's replacement.

What got me the most was that Kelly clearly does not see her actions as they actually happened. Not in the scenes we watched (hello she out and out lied saying that Bethenny admitted to sabotaging her in the press! And she is still talking about the damn jelly beans.) or in her blog on Bravo. I don't even want to call her a nut anymore because she clearly has serious and major mental/medical issues. I feel sorry for her in a strange way. I mean, I don't like her. But no one should suffer from whatever it is that she suffers from.

So what did y'all think? And have you ever had a relationship that is even one tenth as dramatic as their friendships? Normal people don't fight like that. I mean, if I ever felt that strongly about someone, I would just refrain from speaking to them in the future. No need to pretend to be friends with fake lunches or events that end in screaming matches. Who has the energy for that bologna?

I totally agree with you!
Come on...don't think this is too "REAL." But such a guilty pleasure!

Well put, Captain my captain :)

I'd have to imagine they're forced together. I wonder if they'd ever met each other before the show started...

I am so glad someone else reads their blogs too! Such a guilty pleasure! And yes, I can't really see these women hanging out without the show. And yet, Ramona/Jill, Sonja/Luann, Ramona/Sonja, and Luann/Jill were all friends beforehand, allegedly. So maybe they would be "friends?" Although it seems that their friendships are very different from those I have with my girlfriends. I just do not have people in my life that cause 1/1000 of the drama that they stir up. And don't get me started on crazy Kelly...or how mean-girl Jill has been this year. Can't wait for the reunion! :)

Oh my goodness what a crazy episode, I knew something was off for a long time with Kelly and didnt get that no one saw it but Bethany, didnt they watch last season after they taped it? Love the info from the blogs thanks, I need to read those! As for Jennifer, she was suppose to be a new housewife, and they followed her around for 3 months but since there was so much drama going on with Bethany and Jill they focused more on that so she doesnt get enough face time so they decided not to make her one after all. The difference between friendships and this mess is if real friends dont get along they move on, these girls cant because of the show, crazy drama cant make people pretend to be friends!

Can't wait for the reunion episode tonight. Kelly did a psa about bullying on her website. I couldn't believe she called nonsense a breakthrough instead of a breakdown. I feel sorry for her.
