“The Real Housewives of New York” season 7 is finally coming to an end and that means it’s reunion show time! The ladies gathered on July 7 to film this always interesting, always confrontational show, and Andy Cohen is spilling the tea on who surprised him the most and what topic was the most divisive.
When asked which housewife surprised him the most, Andy’s response was that Ramona Singer, once again, filled this spot. In the past we’ve seen Ramona walk off the set, refuse to answer questions about Mario, and shut Andy down, so what could she have done now to be more surprising? Perhaps she was calm and didn’t fight with anyone? That would be surprising!
Andy said, “Yes, Ramona is known for being the first housewife to walk off a reunion, she was the first to dictate the room temperature at a reunion. She has shut me down and shut me up — but she did something during this one that I have never seen before.”
Reportedly there were no walk-offs by any of the ladies, but inside sources are saying that Ramona did ask for two breaks during filing. Another housewife who “caught Andy off-guard” was Luann de Lesseps.
Andy said, “Luann was guns blazing and I have never seen her so fired up.”
Most likely Luann was coming from a place of defensiveness. We now know that Luann is the housewife who brought a man back to the villa in the Turks & Caicos with her soon to be infamous remark, “Be cool, don’t be all uncool” to Carole Radziwill and Heather Thomson. However, the topic most argued about during filming the reunion show was Luann’s new ridiculous song, “Girl Code.”
Andy continued, “It’s likely that LuAnn was “fired up” about others criticizing her over doing her song “Girl Code.” Andy said it was, “Luann vs. Carole and Heather about ‘Girl Code.’”
Heather has previously called LuAnn’s song “dumb” and “stupid.” And for those of us who watched Luann perform her new song on WWHL, we would call it, “heavily auto-tuned.”
Who was the most nervous about the reunion show? Not surprising, Dorinda Medley, since this was her first reunion. As for best one-liners, Andy said that honor goes to Bethenny Frankel. And whose outfit impressed Andy the most? Carole Radziwill. I’m guessing she didn’t purchase it at Forever 21.
As for the seating arrangements, it went like this. On the left couch, Kristen, Heather, Carole, and Bethenny. Andy, as usual, was seated in the middle. And on the right couch, Ramona, Luann, Dorinda, and Sonja. No matter what went on during filming the reunion show, it didn’t stop the women from gathering afterwards for a yay-we-survived post-reunion meal.
