RHONY premiered the first episode of its 7th season this week and Carole Radziwill is setting the bar high for the rest of the season!In her blog this week, Carole claims this is the best season yet and compares the ups and downs to something Shakespeare could have created!
Recently I described it to a reporter as “Shakespearean” and I’m sticking with that. There are highs and lows, with a thread of comedy throughout. It’s the Merry Wives of New York, on our small island Hamlet. Measure for Measure, it’s a Comedy of Errors though at times a Tempest in a teapot. We Tame the Shrew and argue Much Ado About Nothing. The Merchant of Venice comes back and I encounter A Midsummer Night’s Dream. There is love and there are tears. But All’s Well That Ends Well. Let’s be honest, that is, after all, As You Like it.
I’m going to say it right now: This is the best season this show has ever had. It was for me. I laughed, I cried. I met a handsome man.
Carole also gave fans a little tease of what to expect this season from the other ladies,
But enough about me. Have you all heard? The B is back! Love her or hate her she is funny and nutty and honest. Plus mid-way in, she wears a pair of tight Balmain leather pants to a tea party with me, which may or may not have prompted me to have a sex dream about her. You’ll have to wait and see.
And remember when Bush 41 coined the term “kinder, gentler nation” during his acceptance speech at the Republican convention? Well, I’m stealing it. You’re going to see a different side of Ramona — vulnerable and well, kinder and gentler too.
Luann and I never did see eye to eye on things and nothing has changed. It may be because she has three inches on me or it just may be about something else. You’ll soon find out.
Happily, Sonja does seem to get her sh– together and Kristen proves that pretty is pretty sharp too. Then there is Dorinda, the new girl. She just may be the nuttiest of all. Of course, my real life BFF Heather is back and I love her even more.
But most importantly, this season is about being real even if the ladies are not actual housewives!
The good news is that this season we put the “real” back into “Real Housewives.” There are laughs and tears, and yes, there are fights, and hurt feelings, and insults hurled. Not the sort you may see on other shows — hair pulling, wine throwing, table turning — has anyone ever seen that in real life? I haven’t. Maybe I’m going to the wrong parties. But get ready for an emotional roller coaster of crazy like you’ve not seen before. Where things start in Episode 1 is most definitely not where they will end by the reunion. You will all just have to watch and see for yourself.
We can’t wait! Judging from the previews this season seems different than the others, less manufactured drama and more real life. I’m excited to see where it goes! What do you think?
