The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 8 Recap: A Frittered Friendship

Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel have been at odds for the entirety of The Real Housewives of New York Season 10

Things took a turn for the worse on The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 8 when the ladies took a trip to the Berkshires, and, well, the drama kicked into high gear. 

In true Dorinda Medley fashion, she arranged a 1920a themed murder mystery that brought everyone together, and it did not take long for Carole and Bethenny to go to war. 

When the game came to a close, Dorinda asked Carole and Bethenny if there was tension between them. 

“I don’t feel tense; I really don’t feel tense. Our vibe is different; there’s a shift. And in a group, everyone feels the shift,” Frankel said, before turning to Radziwill and saying, “I don’t have a problem with you.”

“I heard that you were either upset with me about something to do with Adam not going and working for your charity for free or you are upset with me and my level of financial support for your charity,” Carole told Frankel after hearing about the way she was talking about Adam wanting money for a charity event. 

“I didn’t ask for more financial support,” Bethenny said in response. “I don’t need any support for your charity. You didn’t ask me about it once. Never. This summer, you didn’t ask me about it all.”

“Truthfully all I said is that I didn’t really hear from Carole really ever about Puerto Rico and she didn’t see really interested in it,” Bethenny said in a confessional to audiences. “It’s the honest truth.”

“That’s not true, Bethenny,” Carole said after Bethenny’s information dump. “Don’t lie, don’t lie.”

Carole then went off on a tangent about an article that was floating about the two women being at odds with each other. 

“I killed the story because I said there’s absolutely no way the story is true,” Radziwill recalled.

“Now I hear these rumblings that it actually might be true. I don’t understand why you wouldn’t come to me. We had conversations over the summer!”

Carole then proceeded to drag Bethenny for contacting Adam without asking her about it first, and Bethenny said that she never even called or emailed him. 

“Okay, so what did you do? Smoke signals? Whatever it was, you did not tell me,” Radziwill said in an epic rant. 

“You can’t parse out people’s words like that. No, don’t do it. It’s not nice. Friends don’t do that. If this is the vibe, I don’t like it. And I don’t think it’s just a shift.”

“You cannot say something, be wrong, and then start whining to get out of it,” Bethenny fired back.

“It was not a Sunday, it was a Saturday, so already you’re wrong. You can’t be so commandeering when you’re not telling the facts. … I care because I am accurate in every single detail.”

“It doesn’t matter if it was a Saturday or a Sunday or a goddamn Tuesday,” Radziwill screamed at Bethenny, adding: “I’m just trying to understand why this happened and how it has affected our friendship.”

They continued to go at it, but there was apparently no end in sight, and they were going to keep the fight going as long as the cameras were rolling. 

The rest of the episode was taken up by the murder mystery, and well, it was a complete and utter drag. This level of filler should not be present this early in the season.

The Voice Recap: Who Won Season 14?

The Voice Season 14 has been a hot mess from start to finish. With mind-boggling decisions from the coaches, to the bloated live episodes, it’s becoming clearer than ever that the show is running out of steam. 

The show should air for one night a week, and have the eliminations in the same episode as the performances. It’s becoming a drag to watch, and the ratings are reflecting it. 

These expanded finale episodes are stuffed with filler, performances from stars we have heard so much about that we’re sick of, and more performances from the potential winners. 

Britton Buchanan, Spensha Baker, Brynn Cartelli and Kyla Jade were the final four of The Voice Season 14, and while they were all very great at performing, only one of them could win. 

Before we got to the first batch of results Season 13 victor, Chloe Kohanski made a return to the stage to perform her new single, “Come This Far.”

It was a surprisingly robust track, and it was filled with the high notes we’ve come to expect from this vocal powerhouse. 

The true test for Chloe will be whether she can emerge from The Voice’s shadow and carve a career of her own in which she thrives instead of disappearing into the ether like much of the others from the show.

In an unsurprising move, Spensha Baker was voted out first, meaning she came in fourth place. Kyla Jade came in third place. 

This left Buchanan and Cartelli in the competitive loop for the title of The Voice. In an unsurprising move, Brynn Cartelli took the win. 

Brynn has been one to watch all season long, and that’s down to her strong vocals and versatility as an artist. You could throw any song her way, and she would make it her own without much of a struggle. 

Brynn’s win also gave Kelly Clarkson a win in her first season as a coach. That’s got to feel pretty great, and knowing Kelly is coming back for Season 15 is music to my ears. 

Despite this season’s flaws, Kelly has been a great addition to the panel. She’s brought a whole new energy with her, and it would make sense to get rid of some of the other coaches to make way for newer additions. 

Okay, what are your thoughts on Brynn winning the whole thing? Was someone else robbed?

Does the show need some big changes?

Meredith Phillips, Former Bachelorette Star, Says She Was Drugged and Assaulted on Season 2

Meredith Phillips, the star of ABC’s Bachelorette back in 2004, said this week on a podcast that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by a crew member on the set of this long-running ABC reality show.

It’s a damning and troubling accusation.

Per Reality Blured, Phillips made this allegation while speaking to Steve Carbone (aka Reality Steve) in response to a question about the most challenging aspect of production.

“Well, besides being always really tired and some of the producers were – how do I say this? Helpful but not helpful, in terms of trying to make me relax,” Phillips replied, somewhat mysteriously.

She then elaborated:

“Normally, I wouldn’t talk about this, but I’m going to tell you because it’s bothered me for years.

“And I know another friend of mine who was working on the show felt the same experience I did, about getting roofied and in a hot tub and kind of accosted.”

Wait… what? Roofied?

As in: someone drugged Phillips and took advantage of her?

Yes, she says.

The allegedly awful deed was done by “a masseuse that a producer hired to come into my room and to give me a massage,” says Phillips.

The ex-reality star says she assumed the pill this person gave her was an “aspirin or something to loosen up my back.” But…

“It definltey wasn’t that, that’s for sure. The last thing I remember was she got naked and she was in the tub with me, and rubbing my back and rubbing areas probably she shouldn’t have.

“And then I was put in bed. I woke up naked. Don’t remember much.”

Yikes. That’s extremely disturbing to hear.

Phillips, whose season of The Bachelorette was filmed in 2003 and aired in early 2004, said that the experience was “hard for me to talk about because I think I’ve put it somewhere else in my brain.”

She was rejected by Bob Guiney on The Bachelor Season 4, finishing as the third runner-up, prior to starring as The Bachelorette and selecting Ian McKee as her winning suitior.

The couple broke up in February of 2005.

Thinking back on this horrifying incident, Phillips said once whatever she had taken kicked in, “I literally couldn’t even move my body, so I have no idea what the pill was, at all.

“All I know is that I was told that, ‘This will make you feel better.'”

ABC is yet to address this charge, but we’d expect the network to make a statement at some point.

Why didn’t she leave the series after this happened?

There was “definitely a part of me” that wanted to, she acknowledges, “but I am also the kind of person that finishes what she starts…

“It is a huge deal. I have worked through it.”

The story has come out just days before Becca Kufrin debuts as The Bachelorette on Season 14.

From Not to Hot Season 2: Will Wedding Bells Ring?

Prepare yourselves, television viewers.

Mama June Shannon and her family are nearly back in our lives.

On June 15, Mama June: From Not to Hot Season 2 will resume with brand new episodes… and these installments will not be lacking for drama.

Or for romance.

As teased by producers, upcoming episodes of this reality show will feature the Las Vegas wedding of Mama June‘s daughter Pumpkin to longtime boyfriend Josh Efird.

(The two are also parents to a baby girl.)

But will other wedding bells also be heard?

As in: Will June herself get hitched?!?

In the following preview, cameras follow the family as members get ready for the big day — and an emotional June makes a surprise announcement to her own boyfriend, Geno Doak.

“I want to marry you right here,” she actually says.

What does Geno say in response? Not much.

Later, however, during the ACTUAL CEREMONY for her child, June stands up and says again:

“I would like to get married."

Et tu, Geno?

“I’m out!” he exclaims, prior to walking out of the wedding ceremony. “She knows I don’t want to get married."

Uh-oh, folks.

Here is the official synopsis from WE tv for what lies ahead:

Shunned by the traditional pageant world, Mama June and her daughter Alana decide to create their own charity event– a Mother-Daughter Pageant!

But as Alana makes the ultimate Honey Boo Boo comeback, she has to compete against her old pageant rivals and make some hard choices.

June faces criticism when she gains weight back, unaware that her rival Jennifer is going through her own ‘Not to Hot’ transformation and may soon upstage her. The arrival of Baby Ella complicates Pumpkin and Josh’s relationship.

But a tearful, couch-potato proposal from Josh leads Pumpkin to say YES, prompting June to want a Mother-Daughter Wedding too!

But will Geno say yes if June pops the question?

American Idol Recap: Who Won Season 16?

ABC’s rebooted American Idol crowned its first winner on Monday night in an episode that was so bloated with guest appearances, and other pointless things to keep viewers on tenterhooks before getting to the good stuff. 

Seriously, there was so much filler that it could have passed as a whole nother show entirely. 

The two-hour live finale kicked off with Lionel Richie performing “All Night Long,” and it was still as impressive as it was in 1983. 

The top 10 contestants joined him on the stage to throw their vocals into the ring for it, but they were overpowered at every turn by Lionel’s excellent vocals. 

When we finally got to the first round of results, it was more than halfway through the show, which is problematic. Ryan Seacrest confirmed which of the three were going home. 

As expected, Gabby Barrett secured the lowest amount of votes overnight and left the show in third place. 

Something very unexpected happened after that. Caleb Lee Hutchinson and Maddie Poppe aka the final two confirmed that they were, indeed, dating. 

It was a great twist in an otherwise polarizing finale, but things took a cheesy turn when they performed a duet of “Over the Rainbow” together. 

There’s saying you’re in a relationship and then there’s throwing it at the audience like you’re selling it. 

In the end, Maddie Poppe was crowned the winner. If you’ve been keeping up to speed with the show this season, you will likely be well aware that Maddie has been the most consistent throughout the whole process. 

Her performances have been solid, and she has made every single moment of the process count. Out of all the top 10, she is the most marketable star. 

The real test will be whether a lesser-viewed Idol can still propel contestants to stardom. Despite returning after a hiatus, the ratings have not been great. 

But ABC has faith, and the show will be back for Season 17 in 2019.

The rest of the finale was filled with performances from celebrities such as Bebe Rexha, Nick Jonas, and even judges Luke Bryan and Katy Perry. 

With the revived season officially in the can, it’s time to look ahead to the next season. The good news is that the judging panel will remain intact next season. 

Despite some issues with the format, the judges have been very constructive.

Katy has been a real treat as a judge. Instead of trying to apologize to Taylor Swift live on air at every opportunity, she’s been helping these contestants realize their true potential. 

Okay, what do you think of the winner? 

Should someone else have it to the finale?

Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24 Recap: All of Me

For an episode that was supposed to be dealing with the exits of both Jessica Capshaw and Sarah Drew, Grey’s Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24 was actually a happy affair that helped all of the characters make big decisions. 

There was a necessary time-jump thrown in for good measure, and during the break, April had quit her job and was helping communities that needed her. She regained her faith. 

Oh, and she was also getting jiggy with Mathew once again, so there’s that. 

Alex and Jo’s wedding day kicked off with a thud when Jo learned that she had been accepted on the fellowship she applied for in Boston. This frightened Meredith because she was scared at the prospect of losing Alex. 

In a selfish move, Mer offered Jo a job as an attending surgeon, and Jo took this as Alex asking her to do it and flipped the eff out. When Jo realized the error of her ways, she and Alex made their way into a shed (I think!) and had some pre-marital sex. 

However, they were both stuck in the shed … with a decomposed body. 

But it was alright, their friends and co-workers were at the wrong wedding anyway thanks to a technical glitch with the link April sent out. As they geared up to leave the faux wedding, the bride’s mother took a heart attack. 

Bailey led the mother to the hospital because she knew what was going on and she was greeted by Teddy, who was back … with a big secret. 

This whole incident made Bailey realize that she needed a break from the hospital to live her life and she offered Teddy an interim role as her replacement. 

Teddy revealed to the bride’s mother that she was expecting a child just as Amelia realized she harbored feelings for Owen. 

Yikes. 

When the wedding planner ate shrimp and took an allergic reaction, the doctors had to keep their wits about them in order to save her life. They managed to save her, but the wedding did not go ahead. 

Instead, it took place on the ferry and Meredith ordained it. No, we’re totally not kidding. 

April, Jackson, Matthew, and Arizona were ominously missing, but we learned they were still on the island. Matthew admitted to April that he loved her and was happy to be back together with her. 

They subsequently got married at the place Jo and Alex were supposed to get married. So, yeah, there were three weddings in one episode!

Arizona was gearing up to leave town to open her own clinic with Herman, and she smiled every single time Callie sent her a message. 

April and Arizona got happy endings, and it’s probably for the best. Could you imagine ABC HQ this morning if one or both of them were killed off?

What did you think of the big finish?

The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 7 Recap: On an Island

The trip to Puerto Rico for Bethenny Frankel and Dorinda Medley proved to them that there were more important things in life than worrying about the latest fashion trends or bickering with their friends. 

On The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 7, the pair made their way to Puerto Rico to bring some relief with them to the citizens. 

Bethenny had already been in Puerto Rico after the hurricane hit and was surprised that it looked the same as it did after the hurricane months later. 

“It’s been several months since the hurricane, and it looks like it was yesterday,” Bethenny said.

“We are so out of touch with our eyelashes, and our selfies and our bulls*** and literally people don’t have the basics,” she added.

In fact, Bethenny had $ 125,000 worth of gift cards to hand out to families in need. Dorinda was also feeling sentimental about the whole thing. 

She gave a child a gift, and passed some money over to her mother. 

“She wants all the things for her daughters as we do for ours,” Dorinda noted to the audience. 

While those ladies were doing their best to help people, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan were back in New York City working on their friendship. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you will know that these two have been struggling to remain friends ever since last year’s big bust-up. 

The pair embarked on a limousine drive to go shopping for some expensive things. They seemed to have put the past behind them, and it was about time. 

“Sonja is in rare form. I don’t care if she’s ribbing me,” said Ramona with a grin. 

Later, the ladies met up for dinner, and Sonja was not impressed at being ignored by Tinsley. These two were once close friends, but they are no longer on talking terms. 

Sonja has been talking smack about Tinsley for some time now, claiming that Tinsley has men pay for her lavish lifestyle because her family are not rich enough to pay for the hotel she’s in. 

Enter Bethenny who felt that Sonja still deserved a little bit of respect because, well, she opened her home to Tinsley in her time of need. 

Another day, Bethenny and Dorinda met up and chatted about Carole’s boyfriend, Adam Kenworthy. Bethenny dished that she asked him to be part of the aid effort as a photographer and that he refused to work for free. 

“He asked what’s the comp. There is no comp,” Bethenny said to Dorinda about his request for money. “It just rubbed me the wrong way.”

Bethenny had already told Carole about the encounter, but unsurprisingly, Carole stood up for him.

The final big event of the episode focused on Carole’s friend’s book party, and Ramona told Carole that Bethenny was dragging her. 

Despite Carole saying to Bethenny that she was not impressed with her, the pair put the past aside and made things right with each other once and for all. 

Okay, what did you think of all the action?
