Housewives Of NYC – Would A Guy Really Agree To A Blind Date On TV?

Newly Engaged Bethenny with Jason Hoppy

Newly Engaged Bethenny with Jason Hoppy

Again the Real Housewives of NYC  was an entertaining episode, and there was limited self promotion this episode only Bethenny’s Skinny Girl Margarita, and Jill Zarin’s fabrics. Has Jill had written into her contract  that they must shoot a scene each week in her store? I have to confess I am amazed at the range of fabrics.

What I found interesting is how do the producers got Bethenny’s guy to turn up on a blind date in front of the cameras. I mean blind dates a bad enough without a camera crew and producer there. The same goes for Kelly’s boyfriend. Kelly’s ego is out of control. I think it is healthy to be self confident but she borders on narcissistic.

A few comments on the episode:

  • Alex and Simon’s renovation looks fantastic – Bethenny gets props for her comment on “who is doing the morning shift” alluding to it looking like a bordello;
  • I love that the kitchen appliances were sponsored by Monogram as seen on other Bravo TV shows;
  • Why do Simon and Alex set themselves up to get their head kicked in by Ramona, they invited her to the party and she never showed up;
  • Same for Bethenny and Kelly, I don’t know why Bethenny bothers, as Kelly clearly thinks of her as just an annoying as a buzzing gnat;
  • And how great did Bethenny look in the Herve Leger dress, a walking advertisment for the skinny girl margarita, speaking of alcohol did she looked a bit sozzled walking out of Simon and Alex’s party?
  • I am starting to think Brad needs a bigger role in the show, as does Bobby.

Also CG sent me this link saying Bethenny is now engaged to Jason Hoppy, so the blind date did not work out. Bethenny will also be getting her own series on Bravo TV, so hopefully Arena will show it here.

RR: I’m in middle of watching NY Housewives right now in QLD. You are not serious that Alex and Simon’s renovation looks fantastic are you? It is soooooooooo tacky. What the hell is with that cheesy decorative wood trim around all the architraves of the doors? That is crap you pick up at Bunnings (or the equivalent in the US) and glue on. Yuck, yuck, yuck. Not that I had high expectations given their original decor and the fact they live in a tacky white brick building – not a brownstone, not nice at all!! Why do they even have a couple like this on the show that are based in Brooklyn (and not a good part of Brooklyn) and so out of their league. Clearly Bravo is paying for the reno as part of their overall compensation and some free appliances are being thrown in. I can’t wait to see the finished renovation….but my expectations are low, low, low. They are just so tacky and so cringeworthy.

I thought there house had nice large rooms, I liked that they were bold. Not something would do but I am a bit of a white wall typ of girl. Maybe that is why they are doing the show to pay for the reno’s, as Bravo are always humiliating them.

I am having a bit of a problem with watching the entire show in one sitting.
I want to smack bethanny for never drawing breath, and ramona because she is breathing …. and the eyes, I want her to stop with the googlie eyes.
How they can get seemingly intelligent women to show just how silly they are is beyond me.
Jill would be the only one I think I could tolerate for a little time.
These women are driving me nuts with their ‘ keeping up with the jones’ and their egos.
