The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 2 Recap: Running Your Mouth

Carole Radziwill is the most courageous housewife in the history of the franchise. 

On The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 2, the 54-year-old embarked on one of the most challenging experiences of her life: the New York marathon. 

While that may not sound like a big deal, you have to take into consideration that Carole has been vocal in the past about not exercising, so it was always going to be difficult. 

When The Real Housewives of New York City Season 9 wrapped, she took up exercising to get in shape for the big event, and who can blame her?

For Carole, the marathon was all about honoring her late husband, Anthony, who competed in the past and she felt like she never took it seriously the first time around. 

“The 30-year-old Carole definitely couldn’t have imagined the 54-year-old Carole running 26. 2 miles. The 30-year-old Carole would say, ‘Are you f——- kidding me?’ ” she shared with viewers. “[But] I’m excited. I’m thinking of it as an adventure.”

In a heartwarming moment, Carole went to find out what Anthony’s stats were, and let’s just say they were much better than hers. 

“I felt a little melancholy and proud at the same time when I saw his name and his time,” Carole said.

“It’s just incredible that he did that and I wish I would have made more of a celebration of it.”

When the time came for Carole to run, she was nervous as hell, but she powered through and met her family and friends at the other side over six hours later. 

It was an emotional experience for her, but she wanted to pay tribute to Anthony, and she did so in winning fashion. 

Before the marathon kicked off, she was scared at the prospect of not being able to complete it. 

“I’m more scared to run the marathon than I was when I was working at ABC News and I was covering the war in the Middle East,” she said.

“Going over to Afghanistan, I felt exhilarated, excited. Now, standing at the start line is probably the scariest place I’ve ever been.”

“It’s very different than other challenges I’ve had in my life. There’s no support. This is all on me,” she added.

Elsewhere, Tinsley continued to cause problems, and it’s becoming increasingly apparent that she was just as bad as Sonja all along. 

During a dinner date with Luann, Tinsley could not help being nasty when Luann tried to give her advice on the man in her life. 

Tinsley looked like Luann had just stuck the knife in her or something that very notion of being given advice. 

This led to Tinsley dragging Luann for having the Countess title, and just being a sucky person. 

Luann met up with Sonja and the two bonded over their mutual hatred for Tinsley. Luann politely claimed that she has various media endorsements through her title, and that was that. 

But Sonja wanted to drag Tinsley some more, and she did so with Dorinda during a walk in the city. 

Sonja claimed that Tinsley was a woman who moved to the city to have a man pay for everything for her and even went as far as claiming that Tinsley never paid for the gift card she gave her. 

Yeah, these ladies are going to be at odds before long, and it looks set to play out when they all head to the Hamptons. 

What did you think of the latest action?

The Real Housewives of New York continues Wednesdays. 


Cynthia Nixon is Actually Running for Governor of New York

Cynthia Nixon has a message for Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall:

You women keep doing your adorable little cat fight thing.

I’m gonna go makeover an entire state, okay?

Indeed, while the latter two ex-Sex and the City stars continue to bicker over their fake friendship, Nixon has set her sights on something a bit more pressing.

The actress announced on Monday afternoon that she is running for Governor of New York.

“I love New York, and today I’m announcing my candidacy for governor. Join us,” Nixon Tweeted alongside a two-minute video just a short while ago, adding via voiceover in this video:

“New York is my home, I’ve never lived anywhere else.

“When I grew up here, it was just my mom and me in a one-bedroom, fifth floor walk-up.

“New York is where I was raised and where I’m raising my kids. I’m a proud public school graduate and a prouder public school parent.”

Sounds like she has one item on her platform (education) already checked off.

Sex and the City, of course, was filmed in The Big Apple.

One television critic after another analyzed how the location itself was as much of a character on the HBO smash hit as Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte themselves.

Continues Nixon in her campaign footage:

“I was given chances I just don’t see for most of New York’s kids today.

“Our leaders are letting us down. We are now the most unequal state in the entire country, with both incredible wealth and extreme poverty. Half the kids in our upstate cities live below the poverty line.

“How did we let this happen? I love New York. I’ve never wanted to live anywhere else, but something has to change.”

Nixon will be challenging Governor Andrew Cuomo in a Democratic primary this fall

If she wins the overall election, she’ll be the first openly gay woman to hold this position.

Her entrance in the race guarantees that Cuomo (who has over $ 30 million his campaign account and who polls list as being far ahead) will face an intra-party challenge from his fairly far left.

“We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us,” Nixon says in her video.

“It can’t just be business as usual anymore.”

The Democratic primary will be held on September 13 and Nixon has already received encouragement from Rosie O’Donnell.

“CYNTHIA NIXON FOR GOVERNOR OF NEW YORK!” Tweeted the comedian after Nixon made her announcement, adding:

“#myFULLsupport – she is one of kind – brilliant – brave bold and so smart – a true leader #Nixon4NY.”

Concluded Nixon, running down more issues on which she feels strongly:

We want our government to work again, on health care, ending mass incarceration, fixing our broken subway. We are sick of politicians who care more about headlines and power than they do about us.

Do YOU agree?

Should Cynthia Nixon be Governor of New York?


Stacey Dash: I’m Running for Congress

Two years ago, Stacey Dash’s Oscars appearance was one of the most painfully awkward moment from any awards show. Move over, Kanye.

Now, the actress and controversial conservative pundit is appearing somewhere else: a ballot.

That’s right, folks. Stacey Dash is running for Congress. This is real life.

Back in the ’90s, Stacey Dash starred in the cult classic film, Clueless.

It’s a beloved film, but some of its stars haven’t fared so well.

There was the tragic death of Brittany Murphy.

Alicia Silverstone is alive and well … but wrote a parenting book that espouses views characterized as anti-vaccination. That’s never a good look.

And then there’s Stacey Dash who emerged in 2012 as a conservative pundit whose outlandish and often unsupported statements made headlines and made heads turn.

Stacey worked for Fox News for a while — she’s both a beautiful woman and a conservative, so she really fit their brand — but the network did not renew her contract in 2017.

Stacey Dash is now, however, running for Congress.

Yes, the Congress of the United States of America. She filed the paperwork to run in California’s 44th district, looking to unseat Democrat Nanette Barragan.

And yes, she’s making “Dash to DC” a real thing.

It’s worth noting that the district tends to vote for Democratic candidates, and includes Compton, Watts, San Pedro, and North Long Beach.

Some guess that Stacey Dash believes that a beautiful woman of color (and celebrity) might have a fighting chance in flipping the district.

Stacey Dash’s history calls that into question.

See, Stacey Dash wasn’t always an outspoken Republican. In fact, she wasn’t always a Republican.

She apparently supported Barack Obama during 2008. Over time, however, she came to believe that Obama’s policies were “socialism.”

(This is in part a result of the polarization that causes people on both sides of the political aisle to view free market capitalism as the only form of capitalism, as if welfare capitalism isn’t sitting right there)

At that point, she decided that she wouldn’t be “pressured” into supporting Obama or other Democratic politicians simply because she’s black or a woman.

She supported Mitt Romney in 2012 and has continued to be an outspoken conservative ever since.

Stacey Dash running for Congress might be a surprise to anyone who expects people to make good choices, but she’s actually been threatening to run for office for a little while now.

On February 9th, she tweeted:

“A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office. I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?”

On February 22nd, she tweeted: “Things are taking shape.” She followed that with “Soon.”

Fans and followers who saw those vague tweets could only conclude that she was either making good on her threat to run for office or constructing some sort of laser on the moon. It was the former.

We don’t know what her strategy for flipping a district that voted 83% for Hillary Clinton in 2016. That will be interesting to watch.

As for Stacey Dash choosing now to run … we suspect that February being Black History month has little to do with it.

She’s stated — or, as some characterize it, she’s parroted racist criticisms in a bid for acceptance from white conservatives — that Black History Month shouldn’t exist.

(Forgetting, perhaps, that without such occasions, some people find it all too easy to focus on white accomplishments. Spending the shortest month of the year to pay attention to the struggles and deeds of a minority isn’t too much to ask, right?)

Stacey’s taken a number of controversial stances that don’t even have to do with race — such as suggesting that transgender people should “pee in the bushes” instead of using bathrooms with cisgender people. Yikes.

Some ask if Stacey Dash is making this run to try to build her brand. Others wonder if she just wants attention — though surely she’s read enough mean tweets about herself by now.
