The fact that we're only on episode two of New York and its already delivering classic moments galore -- the group dynamics in NY are breathaking to witness. LuAnn embracing villain status this season is delicious - comparing herself to Queen Latifah, hashtagging Countess, and bragging about her own Pandora station, all while in a cornrow braid... Never change Lu. That lunch with Sonja was so cynical though -- they clearly are aligning only out of convenience and necessity this season, because the rest of the group can't stand them. I'm actually feeling really refreshed by Carol this season -- now that she's out of Bethenny's shadow and newly single, she's back to being that Carrie Bradshaw figure I loved her for in the early days -- the triathlon storyline was nice to watch and her unlikely friendship with Tinsley is oddly endearing. And the return of Holla (even for a second) filled me with glee. Sonja's Wednesday "with the gays" was both hilarious and completely offensive. Her interns clearly put up an ad on Central Casting because that was a ragtag bunch of strangers showing up to that townhouse. You can tell she's racking her brain for storyline because the cast won't film with her. Dorinda & Tinsley bonding over their raging alcoholism with midday cocktails was cute too. I'm sensing that Dorinda owns this whole season. Very little Ramona but she's still such a powerful force that a little airtime goes a long way for her. After all her inner rage and darkness last season, I'm totally here for a backseat on the Ramonacoaster this year. The only real downside I saw to the episode is Bethenny seems firmly in spin-off mode so far. She needs to stop flipping apartments with Frederick and start filming with the other ladies. Her paying absolute dust to Carol this year and not caring about the group at large makes me wonder she's only staying on to keep her place within the Bravo umbrella until her next solo venture.
