I watched it...and I LOVED it!


Last night I watched the premiere of "The Real Housewives of New York City" Season 2.

As Austin Powers would say, "I'm so excited!!"

Where have I been? I've been wasting my time thinking about the economy, taking care of my children and cleaning the house and I had absolutely no idea that there was a new housewife.







Her name is Kelly Bensimon. The producers of the show (as well as LuAnn) totally scored with this one. She is former model, an editor at large for Hamptons, Gotham, and LA Confidential magazines. As a style expert, she has written three books on fashion and regularly appears on television on programs such as The Today Show, CBS, Style, and Oprah. As Bethenny said, she hangs with the true "fabulous" crowd in the Hamptons and Manhattan. If there were a caste system on this show, she would be a Brahmin. And she KNOW it.

Those of you who watched know that the season started with a bang.

Apparently Simon slammed Jill in an interview with New York Magazine. He claimed that he's really good at reading people. "Like Jill, for example, I could tell right away she's from Long Island." MEOW Simon. As if it takes a psychic to know that! It was clearly a dig.

Jill obviously didn't like his condescending snobby comment, so she hit back in an interview with Cindy Adams in The Post. Saying that she doesn't really talk to Alex and Simon and that he had a drinking problem!

The show moved on to a fundraiser at Jill's house in the Hamptons.

I was really appalled that LuAnn promised that her children would help stuff the gift bags and then didn't follow through. And THEN she didn't even apologize. How rude. And she's writing a book about manners? Start with following through on your promises LuAnn.

Interesting that outspoken Jill didn't call her on it. She doesn't want to burn any bridges with LuAnn. If Alex or Ramona had done that the gloves would have been off.

Woo hoo!! Let the games begin. This is going to be juicy. The previews show all kinds of drama.

One fight in particular that I look forward to is Ramona's husband Mario vs. Jill. They've all been pretty mean to Ramona and her man is stepping up.

Stay tuned!!!

I loved Kelly. And I think that the main reason that I loved her is that I can't wait how jealous Bethany will be of her. Gorgeous, thin, not a drunk, and has kids? I see Bethany losing at least three more ounces over it.

Very interesting and close to home. My girlfriend's husband grew up with ramona's hubby and says he is actually a sweetheart and an amazing tennis player. She is...as you see her.
All summer and Fall they have been filming real housewives of bergen county around here... I am sure it will be a mini-sopranos and further perpetuate the "dirty Jersey" stereotype!
That's why I love the housewives of the OC, a whole other world!

OMG! The dramz!! It's so scandalous, I can't wait to watch it on DVR while doing Wii Fit on Friday LOL! My fiance refuses to watch it with me, but I bet he could find some nasty petty stuff to discuss with me after watching an ep. I may have to convince him to do so!

I also think Simon's gay. I don't like him, he sends off bad vibes and I always feel like I need to take the stick out of his snooty, pretentious ass. LOL!

Love your thoughtful commentaries and glad you're a fan now!

In the previews there is a "lunch" between Kelly and Bethany where Kelly says something like "I really don't know you" or "you're not in my league" or something! I can't wait!!!

I just commented on this stuff too. And we seem to differ on Ramona...she bugs me to death!

I watched and loved it too. I don't like Kelly though, she seems selfish and weird to me. Those fake boobs are gross. LuAnn seems to have changed, become more bitchy this season. Hmmmmm....
