    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    I have TWO thoughts on this whole clusterf@@k...

    In a way I have a sneaking suspicion that Luman was taking an opportunity to "get back" at Sonja for all the misdeeds that Luman perceived as happening (ie; Montana, facialist, etc). This would be a fantastic way to stick it to Sonya..... she saw an opportunity and snatched it up!!!

    Then again... they could be setting this whole thing up (both of them) as a way to have a story-line play out. A smattering of lil digs here 'n there throughout the season, THEN the facialist, THEN Sonja "not sticking up for a friend", THEN the tarot card reader saying there's a "devil among you" (which btw I think is a crock of baloney), THENNNnnn... the coup de grāce, Luman leaves with Harry.....after he wants to "take it to another level". Perfect way to end the season, ScAnDaL! Luman is the devil among them!! {{{{GASP}}}}}

    I dunno, I'm thinking it's all staged .. and I VERY rarely wanna claim story-lines, staged, fake, etc.. but this one no smell right to me Lucy.

    I am on the same page with you , Maveno. I believe that this whole extended story line between Sonja and Luann has a very over-dramatized, staged quality about it - in other words, it's all coming off like an extended burlesque style sex farce.
    I began to feel that these two (Luann and Sonja) were colluding to create a scandalous, "shared-man" story line as far back as the Cap'n Jack Sparrow/Johnny Depp look-alike episodes (and now this, with Harry). Maybe it even goes back farther than that, but that was when my BS meter started setting off alarm bells.

    IMO, it's theatrics, played out for effect.

    The idea of anyone having sex with Harry is kinda gross.
    Also Sonja usually goes for barely legal, so I can see Luann saying Harry is not exactly her type. But not Luann's either.

    Ok, I just read everything everyone has posted about this past episode.

    Oh my, I fell asleep at the very end.

    SO LUANN LEFT CAROLE'S PARTY WITH HARRY...........o.m.g. as I had seen the part where Harry gives Sonja (Ramona's ring lol) and stated he wanted to take their relationship further!!!!

    WOW, lol, OH MY.

    SCRIPTED. TOTALLY.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    I have to say, for all the build up, as big as it was, I was a little disappointed in the big leg throw. The moment itself lived up to expectations. But I got fooled by the time change of 9-1030, and thought it was going to continue. When it cut off at "the leg was thrown, they laughed, the end" I felt letdown. I would have liked to have seen a bit of the aftermath. I would have liked to see Aviva eventually leave, the people at the party talking about it, etc. It was a big moment. But with all the build up, it felt like a letdown - perhaps because they played their hands at the start of the season and gave away the ending.

    Ramona has a jewelry store. I believe the ring is a positive intention. Harry does not have the wherewithal to be a good boyfriend or husband. Even good intentions cannot make someone something they are not. He has probably treated many a woman badly. Leaving Sonja that night was nothing new to him. Most men in love or lust will accompany you everywhere. Sonja should just give up Harry romantically. She is wasting her time. Sonja probably needs to go older again.

    Luanne is rude. You do not leave a party with another woman's man when you know that will cause pain to another woman. I believe Luanne is very messed up. She lied saying she was trying to get pregnant with the French guy when she knew her tubes had been tied. She has sex at the drop of the hat (she just met the pirate guy).

    Aviva--telling people Carole had a ghost writer was totally rude. I guess she must have herself felt bad having a degree in English and a law degree but needing a writer for her book.

    Heather--from the Andy show, she looks like she has gained a little weight........kind of like me....I ponder about my extra weight.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    The way they explained Harry leaving the party on WWHL made perfect sense. The whole gang decides to leave the party and go dancing. Sonja was probably just like she was for the horse race not paying attention and not with the crowd, which irked her. Editors saw an opportunity for a storyline and created on. As for the promise ring ... I think that Harry knowing so many of the women enjoyed being on TV. The women looked for opportunities to get him on TV, and cooked up a story of a more serious relationship with Sonja than he's ever actually had. Even the discussion with Sonja and LuAnn in the aftermath seemed forced, and like the two didn't truly care about it.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    I watched WWHL with Heather, Ramona, and LuAnne.

    Heather still HATES Aviva and thinks she is acting for the camera. Heather knew Harry before even getting on the real housewives show.

    Ramona LIKES Aviva and had dinner with her recently. She doesn't think Aviva is acting for the camera but acknowledged that she is not that same as she is in real life.

    LuAnne seems to be in the middle but leaning toward the anti-Avivia camp. She said Harry likes to date a lot of women and that was the reason she didn't think he and Sonja were a good match.

    All 3 seemed to get along really well and also seemed to be having a good time with each other. One thing about Luanne...she was roaring with laughter when Andy replayed the leg scene. While Luanne is a little pretentious where certain things are concerned, she seems adventurous and is someone who likes to laugh. I really do like her.

    All 3 said Harry is like part of the family. Heather came to WWHL taping with Harry and Harry's date (I think Heather referred to her as young and pretty).

    Most of the group left Carol's party at the same time as sort of a group - incl. Sonja What rubbed Sonja wrong was that Harry sat in Luanne's cab - not hers.

    I really liked that Luann called Ramona out on the way they've treated each other. She was nice about it, joking along the way, but also didn't let Ramona just sweep everything under the rug and pretend like they are great friends. But I REALLY wish they would explain why LuAnn was on all season, is on WWHL for the finale, and is at the reunion, but is not part of the cast.

    That leg business was so faked. Aviva must have had that thing on her lap (with the same shoe it always has lol) waiting for a chance to heave it. No way she would,wear that shoe with that dress. Not impressed. Enjoyed Kristin and Luann's reactions though.

    Kristin looked great in the modeling session and billboard. She should wear her hair in that wavy style, instead of straight, all the time. Much more youthful and flattering.

    I think it is a shame if they are all fired except for Ramona. Though I do hope Aviva is gone. She is a toxic mess.
