LuAnn de Lesseps says that narcissists are hard to communicate with, referring to her struggles with Ramona Singer in this week’s episode of the RHONY. In her blog, the Countess says that her friendship with Sonja Morgan is absolutely none of Ramona’s business and also says that she feels for Dorinda and what she has been through with Singer.
“Everyone loves gossip, except when itâ€™s about them! Sonja should have shut her facialist down when she began gossiping about my preferences in men. I can assure you that this aesthetician knows nothing about me, and I think Sonja should be wary of what this woman says about her while sheâ€™s exfoliating some other womenâ€™s face. Very unprofessional.
Longtime fans know that the Housewives love psychics! Do you remember when the Moroccan psychic predicted the end of Ramonaâ€™s marriage? Kim Russo is amazingly connected to the spirit and the living world. Iâ€™m sure it was exhausting for her to take in all the negative energy during this reading. Her prediction that Jules becomes a role model for women suffering with eating disorders is already coming true. As for Dorinda having lots of Johns in her lifeâ€¦too many for Kim to read…again very true. When she said that there was a Richard and a Robert attempting to communicate, you could see the more skeptical ladies begin to question their biases. The thing about the coins gave me the chills! I hate to admit this, but I wasnâ€™t surprised when Kim said Dorinda would not marry John. Ramonaâ€™s outburst was totally uncalled for. Bethenny tried to hide her emotions behind her cell phone and a wall of sarcasm, yet you can see her reaction when Kim says she doesnâ€™t see her getting remarried. Even in the afterlife, Bethennyâ€™s father is incapable of having a good relationship with her. Sad. The session ends with a Ramotional moment where Kim channels Ramonaâ€™s father who she was estranged from until two weeks before his death. This is Hallmark Channel material!
Acceptance is the key to recovery, and we see Jules bravely sharing with Carole that sheâ€™s struggled with an eating disorder for most of her life. I guess articulating her suffering and giving others hope will help her and others with this terrible disease. Carole suggests that she give speeches and write about her recovery and even suggests a good ghostwriter. LOL!
Narcissists are difficult to communicate with because they bring every discussion back to themselves. Dorinda arrived to dinner with John angry, and she left angry. She was upset from her argument with Ramona about John during the psychic reading, and she needed John to listen to her and for him to consider how his relationship with Ramona affects her. Neither Ramona nor John considers Dorindaâ€™s feelings. I hope they can come to some sort of agreement so that Dorinda can relax.
I really shouldnâ€™t have to explain to Ramona that to re-gift means to give a gift one has received to someone else. She said that she liked the sample of the necklace, so when it was produced, I gave her one. She is so ungrateful! As for her opinion on my staying with Sonja while I apartment hunting, itâ€™s nobodyâ€™s business but Sonjaâ€™s and mine. How much we party and with whom we socialize is also not Ramonaâ€™s business. I was glad when the conversation moved on to the less controversial topic of hair!
I was thrilled for Sonja that her Tipsy Girl Prosecco was delicious and fun, just like her. Everyone loved it and Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s going to fly off the shelves. She knows what she likes, and she made her dream of producing a wine a reality. I do think itâ€™s weird that sheâ€™s in business with Peter who Ramona worked with on a restaurant venture. Small world? Letâ€™s see next week how Bethenny reacts to the name Tipsy Girl. I donâ€™t think she has a lock on the word â€œgirl,â€ but I do think itâ€™s a little too close to Bethennyâ€™s wheelhouse.”
