Real Housewives of New York City: Reunion, Part One

The Real Housewives of New York City celebrated the end of its most recent season with part one of a reunion episode. Here are the highlights:

: Ms. Bethenny Frankel (or is she Mrs. Bethenny Hoppy now?) stood up to Jill, which practically broke Jill's heart. I can see both sides of their argument. I really think Jill changed and Bethenny should give her another chance. Bethenny has so much positivity in her life, and I think Jill needs her now. However, from the looks of the reunion show, the Bethenny and Jill BFF-ship is over. Also on the topic of Bethenny, what do you think of her daughter's name, Bryn?

Jill: As noted, Jill was lectured by Bethenny and it looks like it's only going to get worse. It seems that Jill is going to walk offstage a lot during the next two episodes of the Housewives reunion. I hope she is forgiven, but I doubt it. Alex really needs to lay off of her, but I doubt that she will.

Ramona: The Ramona montage was pretty crazy - she really does have her ups and downs. The way she treated Bethenny was pretty awful in one part of the season, but very nice in another. Not much else happened with Ramona.

Alex: Alex stuck with her new tough girl image during a face off with Jill. It works for her. I like the tough Alex. Once again, I'm not convinced that Jill deserved it, but still...Alex did it and made it look good.

Kelly: Ms. Killoren Bensimon managed to display her crazy side once again, this time without even saying much. She accused Bethenny of talking about her to the press, but didn't have any way to back that up with facts. The truth must have been talked out during a commercial break, because post-break Kelly admitted that she was wrong.

We didn't hear from Sonja Morgan, the newest housewife, but I think we will on the next episode. I liked Sonja, but I didn't find her very controversial. When Alexis joined The Real Housewives of Orange County, she jumped in with a bang: insults, Godliness mixed with slutty outfits, perfect mom image along with nannies. All Sonja has to be controversial about is sex. Sonja's really nice to everyone, almost unrealistically so. We'll see how she turns out next season.

Part two of the Real Housewives of New York City reunion airs on Monday, June 14th at 9 PM on Bravo, preceding The Real Housewives of New Jersey (team Teresa)!
