Dissecting the Real Housewives of New York
Posted on

I’ve been watching Real Housewives of New York since the beginning up to its fourth season, which ended recently with two reunion episodes.
I read on Twitter that Part 2 of the reunion was especially toxic, and true enough, it was one of the most stressful 65 minutes of television I have ever seen.
I watched it in the wee hours of the morning by myself and halfway through I wanted to cry at how mean these women are to each other.

THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK CITY Season 4 Reunion Special
From L-R: Cindy Barshop, Kelly Killoren-Bensimon, Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Lesseps, Andy Cohen, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Alex McCord (Photo by: Heidi Gutman/Bravo)

Here’s what I thought of each housewife while watching the final episode:

1) I hate LuAnn the most. She is a mean girl, the Queen Bitch. I cannot stand her hair, her songs and even her chaka boyfriend (kahit na mabait). Plus points: She has a nice house at the Hamptons.
2) Jill Zarin is Mean Bitch #2. But I am partial to her because I find her the most sosy. Plus points: I love her husband Bobby. So mabait.
3) Kelly is psycho and Mean Bitch #3. I’m scared of her masculine body. Plus points: She is the prettiest and has the nicest house. At masarap siyang kakampi.
4) Cindy Barshop is just simply boring. I don’t know if she really belongs to the show. Plus points: She has good taste in art and is a hard-working woman (read: idol).
5) Ramona Singer is a train wreck and how I don’t want to grow old. I find everything about her baduy. Plus points: she seems like a good mom to Avery.
6) Sonja Morgan could be really pretty in a Lauren Hutton/Barbra Streisand sort of way—but the way she dresses is so bastos with all her private parts hanging out. I am really scared of her old townhouse and her toaster oven. Plus points: maganda siya.
7) Alex McCord is the most kawawa. The brunettes are so mean to her, I feel so bad. Yes she is baduy but I think she is the kindest one in the cast. She just doesn’t know how to mind her own business. Plus points: payat siya.

While watching the last episode I started to think about grading the housewives just to see how I feel about them adds up.
I really hate LuAnn the most and think Alex is the kindest one, but according to this chart, it looks like Ramona is the one I hate the most.
Check this out: (highest score possible: 100)

Ramona’s 2nd or 3rd (not sure) jewelry line sold out on the shopping network.  I find her goodlooking too, but weird eyes. I also used to love jill zarin, until i learned that she attacked the person who gave her a bad review on amazon, tried to give herself a good review (she got caught bec she didn’t even bother to make a new account, it’s now famously called the amazongate), AND (the previous 2 i get, but this one i find too childish) she gave bethenny’s books a bad review.  they also gave this a  news blackout on the… Read more »

Personally Im with the blondes. I cannot stand Luann. She thinks she’s so high and mighty, she loves to give low blow comments. Kelly, well she’s on another planet in her own little world. She doesnt make sense most of the times. She is like a little kid and tells people to hush when she doesnt want to hear what other people have to say. I love the last season when Bethanny was still part of the cast and they all went on a trip. Kelly really went crazy there. As far as everyone else. I like Jill, Ramona, Alex  and… Read more »

The reunion pretty much summed up what they are, they are like high school mean girls. Nakakaloka sila, but I agree with he previous comment na mas mukhang down to earth ang mga blondes, at hindi sila mapangmata tulad ng iba. mukha naman talaga, kahit last season pa. inggit sila kay bethenny. but kahit sosyal si jill, nasira siya talaga with what she did to bethenny. she will always be remembered as “the former friend”. The blondes on the other hand are in bethenny’s good graces. Kasama pa sila talaga sa mga spin off shows ni bethenny.  The rumor here… Read more »

What happened to this show? It almost became RHONJ with all the nasty things they say to each other. Here’s what’s on my list: Cindy: Very hardworking. I love her but she doesn’t fit in. Or maybe she just won’t put up with all the crap of the other girls. Jill: She’s the real villain of the show. The entire season she went on and on about being a changed person but heck she’s still the old Jill with all the old tactics. Luann: Truly, the only thing that makes her all relevant now is her title. She’s meaner this… Read more »

RHONY is pretty much just pure chaos now. it was so entertaining before when bethenny was there. props to her for making it on her own and shes worth more now than all of these bitches combined.  IMO alex is not kawawa. shes been trying too hard. maybe because there has been rumors that she will not be signed anymore. thats when she started fighting everybody.  i agree with crazy kelly, alex was acting.. like that episode na bumaba sya ng hagdan. she was calm naman when she left ramona. cray cray.  ramona is tactless. but i think without her… Read more »

I was into RHONY but after this season…unless they change some cast or all of it, I won’t even bother anymore.  I don’t like LuAnn,I think she is one of the reasons kung bakit hindi na nagbati si Bethenny and Jill.  She blocked Bethenny when B was reaching out to Jill.  Kelly, baliw naman yan eh, she is being protected daw by Russell Simmons and of course her ex,Giles…imagine media blackout after ng breakdown nya last year.  Sonja, I think she is cool.  Ramona is histrionic.  Alex borders desperate sometimes but likable when she is not hypervetinlating.  Cindy, who?

i wonder if that’s true. they’re not that rich pala? so Bethenny is really richer than all of them now. 
thanks for the link.

Hello, Long-time lurker of your blog here.  I’ve been watching RHONY too during my walang-magawa days.    I tend to agree with most of your evaluations of the housewives.  Some of the things that I would like to add to your thoughts that may or may not change your scores are: 1.  Not sure if you know, but in terms of houses, Luann is not the only one who has a house in the Hamptons.  Ramona and Kelly each has at least one property in the Hamptons too (the others may own something there too but I don’t know those… Read more »

I forgot to ask, do you watch the other RHO cities? I like Beverly Hills. The others I don’t care for.

Hahaha love how you even a table to rate them. I gave up on the RHONYC last season and didn’t bother this season. It’s all petty fights. I hope they find different women for next season. By the way I was surprised to see Alex M and his “gay like” husband sitting next to me on the D line about 2 weekends ago. I guess it them being true NYawkers and riding the subway : )
