RHONY Recap: Ep. 8×01

OMG this is the 8th season of RHONY. I really remember not knowing if this show would even succeed. There was this relatively unknown show RHOC and ours was supposed to be called Manhattan Moms. I may not know it all, because I thought making us a Housewives extension sounded terrible and scared me. Well, no matter what we were, it worked and here we are about to celebrate a decade-old anniversary of the franchise.

Unlike many of the cities’ shows, a lot of us OGs, aka original gangsters, are still here: Luann, myself and Ramona are 3/5 of the maiden voyage and a good trio at that.

Ramona is single and a new woman, and we have a real friendship. I am a different person than where I started, and I respect our journey together. It’s adorable Ramona comparing her divorce to mine–like I walked into the voting both and voted for “the worst divorce of the decade.” That’s like comparing a drunk college guy at a bachelor party to Charlie Sheen on New Year’s Eve. She knows better of it now.
