The Big Apple will never be the same after judging by the season 3 premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City on BRAVO. Our favorite girls are back to their he said / she said ways, Bethenny Frankel bares all for a good cause, and there is havoc in the Hampton’s on a yacht rented by Ramona Singer!
When we last saw the housewives, Kelly Bensimon and Bethenny Frankel were the farthest thing from friends, and Jill and Bethenny had a small falling out but were still close. Ramona started a new business, and Simon and Alex were grossing everyone out with Simon’s metrosexual behavior and their close relationship. But as the summer in New York winds down, the ladies hit the Hamptons, and Ramona invites Jill Zarin and Luanne De Lessepps on a yacht for a cruise for brunch, which turned into Ramona promoting her jewelry line she sells on a home shopping channel. Jill is appalled that she would do this to her own friends, trying to make them buy her jewelry. She also says Ramona is waayyy too old to be wearing a bikini. These two seem to be at each others throats all the time.
It is a shock to hear that Jill and Bethenny are no longer friends. They had a falling out because Bethenny said she was too clingy with her, and she made the mistake of telling Jill she needs a hobby. That sent Jill over the edge and made her end their friendship. Jill is also offended that all Bethenny did was send flowers when she found out that Bobby, Jill’s husband, had thyroid cancer. Bethenny is in a new relationship with a man named Jason, who seems to have taken Jill’s place by Bethenny’s side.
Also on tonight’s Season 3 Premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City on BRAVO, Jill, Kelly Bensimon, and Luanne have lunch and discuss divorce, since Luanne is going through it herself. Kelly seems to be making more of an effort to be friends with the other housewives, as opposed to last season where she lectured Bethenny like she was a five year old, and acted like she was too good for everyone.
Luanne meets up with Bethenny for a drink, and she just lets her have it. Luanne wants to know if Bethenny will cover the check because of an incident in the past where she invited Luanne surfing and Bethenny ended up paying for her, and then making a remark about it. Luanne thinks that since she is a Countess, she deserves respect, and she tells her that she was not there when Luanne needed her through her divorce . Then she brings up Jill, and Bethenny is lit up at this point, telling Luanne that she may give etiquette advice, but she does not follow it herself. Luanne just wants to be her friend, but Bethenny makes it clear any slides will be in Luanne’s face and not behind her back. Luanne seems to make fun of Bethenny for driving a car that promotes her products.Â Then behind her back she calls Luanne a dumb drag queen! Nice!
Everyone seems to be mad at Bethenny when she is finally happy and having great success with her business ventures and her relationship, and Kelly, the outcast of last season, seems to have taken a more friendly roll with some of the other housewives. Judging by the preview for next week’s episode, things are going to get more tense between Jill and Bethenny, and housewife Alex McCord, who was pretty muchÂ the only drama free lady inÂ this episode, also has it out with Jill. It looks like it will will be an explosive episode, I am on the edge of my seat!
