Real Housewives of NYC Episode Recap and Gossip!

On this week's episode of The Real Housewives of NYC...


Surprise, surprise, Bethenny and Jason are back together. That was quick. The couple was supposed to go out to dinner with Jill and her husband Bobby, but Jason was stuck at work. He finally showed once dinner was over, which raised him up a notch in Jill's book, since she said he obviously only showed up out of respect for Bethenny.

Plus: Check out how Jason allegedly was fired for appearing on the show!


Alex and Simon are going to an event at the Met, and Alex's hair actually looks good! She got it straightened professionally, and it looks fantastic, especially compared to that witch hair she usually sports.


LuAnn has Bethenny over to drinks and we learn a surprising fact. LuAnn's marriage to the Count is her first... but it's his fourth. As Bethenny says, "Four's a charm, right?" Wow. I wonder if he has kids from his previous marriages.

LuAnn's son (the one who thinks his mom is never home) asks if he can go to dinner with LuAnn and Bethenny. LuAnn says no, because "no children go to this restaurant." Her son says, "It's a restaurant!" and she shoots him down again. She really never is home.


So, Alex and Simon are off to the Met and they hit traffic. This sets them back so they have to fly through the red carpet (though the paparazzi had their cameras down for them because they had no idea who the couple was), and don't get a chance to network before the opera started. I'm convinced they showed up late on purpose so it wouldn't be caught on camera that they really didn't know anyone there. What do you think?

LuAnn and Bethenny

I've been waiting for this scene all season. Bethenny and LuAnn get a car (that Bethenny's boy Jason sometimes uses) to drop them off at the restaurant. Bethenny introduces the driver to LuAnn, saying, "This is LuAnn." When they get in the car, LuAnn says to Bethenny, "If you introduce me, to like, a driver, it's like, Mrs. deLesseps. You know like kids. It's a level of respect. My husband would actually be like, 'Oh My God.'

Bethenny feigned surprise, but you know she was thinking, "Are you kidding me?" As she said in her interview, "I do not have the Countess handbook so I had no idea… get over yourself!"


Alex made the Style section of the NY Times, though the picture was of her back and she was #25. Apparently she's been #1 in the past. Not at opening night though. Interesting.

Also, Bethenny and Jill call up Alex to invite her to Bethenny's dinner party. Bethenny even says on the phone that it's a girls' night. Then Alex says, "Question for you. Question, question. Could I bring Simon with me?"

What???? Do you think Simon's a girl? Or are you that attached at the hip that you can't leave him home for one night?!?

Alex herself must know it's weird because she said, "I can put him in a cocktail dress." Why the heck is she bringing him?

Aaaaah, I love that later on, when Alex is telling Simon about the party, she says, "I gave them ample opportunity to say 'No, it is a girls' night.'" Really? Are you sure you did that, Alex? This is too funny.

Simon then says, "So it'd be weird then if I didn't go?" Oy. Also, they blatantly say they're going to re-gift wine for the event.


Oh Ramona. She went off about how she didn't understand why Simon was there. Listen, we all think it's strange that he came. But most people would be nice about it and not be rude to his face (behind his back, maybe). Ramona made the whole situation very uncomfortable.

Beyond that, the dinner table conversation revolved around class, and it was obvious that Ramona had no class at all. Especially when she got up in the middle of dinner and said she was leaving to go to a club downtown with her girlfriends. She wanted a girls' night out, this wasn't all girls, so she was leaving. How rude is that!? It was insulting to Simon, it was insulting to Bethenny's cooking, it was insulting to everyone there. Wow.

Later on we see Ramona dancing at the Gotham event. Was that not the scariest thing ever? That woman is insane. And what was she doing dancing with other men? She kind of makes me nauseous.


Bethenny went to Alex's house for Francois' birthday. Alex's house was a mess. There weren't even floors! Bethenny was shocked. As she said in her interview, Alex and Simon presented themselves in such a scholarly, European, world traveled, luxury hotel way, so it was surprising to see their house in such disarray.

On next week's Real Housewives, Ramona strikes again.
