According to Luann de Lesseps, star of “The Real Housewives of New York,” the problem with Kristen is all about her timing and not about her intelligence. The Countess took to her Bravo blog to defend Kristen after this week’s episode of round 2 with Kristen vs. Bethenny, Ramona vs. Kristen, and all things cool and uncool.
Luann wrote, “It was only a matter of time before Ramona reared her Ramotional head, and I was surprised at her aggressiveness with Kristen. Kristen has a right to express herself wherever and whenever she wants. As for Ramona calling Kristen dumb…well, that’s just dumb! Kristen is very smart, and while she might be having a little difficulty getting on with some of the girls, her problem is with timing, not intelligence.”
If you say so, Countess. In the meantime, Luann has more of the same advice for Kristen when dealing with Bethenny.
“I told Kristen that she’s going to have to give Bethenny time to warm up to her and not take it so personally when Bethenny blows her off. Rejection is hard, but banging your head up against the same wall over and over is even harder!”
Speaking of banging, Luann spoke about the strange sex dream admission from Carole and what it means for Bethenny.
“Carole’s admission to Bethenny that she had a sex dream about her was a bit strange considering they don’t know each other all that well. I can see how a bit of nooky would loosen Bethenny up, but I think she’s going to have to find her own way on this! At least Carole was honest that she stirred the pot when talking about Kristen’s Pop of Color nail polish brand. Why she would insert herself between the two of them is beyond me…I guess even cool girls can be all uncool!”
Drama ensued when Luann invited the ladies to the shameless plugging fashion shoot so they could bring the “positive energy” though it didn’t exactly work out that way.
“I invited the girls to my shoot, so they could see my collection up close and personal,” Luann added, “I thought having the girls there would bring positive energy to the shoot, and I was concerned when Bethenny got so upset over the Turks and Caicos dates. I understand why she wouldn’t want to be away from her daughter for 21 out of 30 days. As for her poking fun at me…if Bethenny doesn’t tease you, she doesn’t like you.”
As for Sonja, Luann thinks that although they “might” be enabling her, she needs to solve her own problems.
“I told the girls that Turks and Caicos is not an intervention but a vacation! Sonja has to find her own way, and while I would never leave her alone in a club when she’s been drinking, I do think she has to solve her problems herself, and I’m hopeful she will. Maybe we are enabling her when we take care of her, but that is what friends do for each other.”
