I totally forgot about Elyse. She seemed so timid until Leah encouraged her, but it was too late.
At least she gave us Duplicitous Nefarious Narcissistic Superficial Bitch™.
Once Leah told her to say something. Elyse literally turns to walk away and is prodded back and into action. I wish Elyse had been less meek towards Ramona. I think she thought they were genuine friends?
I just realized I forgot Kelly on my ranking. She is below even Eboni and Leah, the absolute worst to ever do it.
Kelly is terrible, I genuinely can't stand her, but her terrorizing the wives on Scary Island and her feud with Bethenny are staples of the franchise.
Also a shame Leah made Heather walk off the season when we could have had Aviva coming back and haunting Leah.
The more I watch Scary Island the more it's apparent to me that Kelly wasn't high or mentally unwell - she's just incredibly snobby and mean. And also just not that intelligent.
I don't know, considering all Housewives said it was ten time worse and she had to be escorted out by production makes me thing something definitely wasn't right, plus she always has been acting like a malfunctioning Sim, but she was even more bizzarre than usual.
I also think she is not used to be surrounded by people who isn't fawning over her, I had a friend like that and when I introduced them to my friends, who couldn't give two fucks about who they were, she did have some reactions similar to Kelly, ddd. So I guess it was a mix of the two.
Rent Free. Kelly was horrible but she was great in her horribleness. Flop Fox Five only can wish.
Kelly Bensimon is a moron.
"I'm humiliated, I'm ashamed, but I'm still amused" - Aviva is too relatable sometimes. And while I'm still on season 5, Carole is such a treat. The way she can't stop being shady for a milisecond on these early episodes is so endearing, and she's always safe from being called out because Ramona is unusually messy on these episodes. Carole's confessionals are the best so far.
That Insta Live featuring Leah was peak Elyse and a glimpse of her complete Dark Mistress potential. There was a moment last year when Elyse felt like she could be an amazing housewife.
The finale was decent.
Friend of the popjustice pod Elyse Slaine deserved another season as a friend of, I think one of the weak links of RHONY, was the lack of long running friend of, something that I feel RHOBH actually nailed well throughout the seasons, they always managed to include great supporting cast members (D.D., Alison, Dana/Pam, Eden, The morally corrupt Faye Resnick) and always managed to bring past cast members (Camille, Adrienne, Taylor, Brandi, Eileen, etc.) in a consistent way
This is exactly the scene that convinced me to dive into RHONY.
I had a random deep dive through the Housewives subreddit last night and I rediscovered this legendary scene
"She DIED Aviva! That's not a compliment!"
"Did you just call me a name????"
No one at the time could admit it but now we can see that Aviva really got Heather. She riled her up so effortlessly. I feel like the modern iteration of Housewives really gels with Aviva's campy villain antics in a way that wasn't appreciated at the time.
Sure, she riled her up but Heather for a hot second but Heather wasn't giving in or letting her land any punches. Aviva is so overrated. Season 5, she had potential but season 6 was a dumpster fire. She threw her leg out at a dinner party. The rest of her season was dull, self-produced and very one note. It would have been more interesting if it all happened naturally. We got that "emotional" moment with her visit to the barn but didn't her family sue that family for a ton of money? On top of all of that, we had to suffer through her pervy father George. I'm good. Her meet up with Ramona in season 5 is still amazing though... Ramona handled it so well though.
SHOW A LITTLE COMPASSION LADY. IT'S VERY RUDE!
I HAVE TO TELL YOU WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BREATHE THROUGH A STRAW 24 HOURS A DAY IN NEW YORK CITY IN THE SUMMER IS NOT FUN
AND ALL YOU CAN SAY IS 'GEE' COULD YA POSSIBLY SAY "GEE I'M SORRY YOU CAN'T COME ON THE TRIP POSSIBLY" OR IS ALL YOU CAN SAYS "I DON'T BELIEVE YOU"
!!!WHAT A BITCH!!!
Okay but the energy in that visit was so unsettling. Going in blind someone could’ve told me it was from Saw I would’ve believed them.
Another classic. Kristin really understood the assignment too. I still don’t like seeing her ranked below (or below) the likes of Kelly, Eboni, Jules, Cindy and Leah.
