It feels like just yesterday we were shitting the bed in Cartagena, but the ladies of Real Housewives of New York City are back!

In this post I’ll be introducing you to the new housewife, saying bye bye to Carole Radziwill, giving AGELESS by Ramona updates, talking about Tinsley Mortimer dancing in a strip club in WEST Palm Beach, discussing the nuances of Palm Beach vs. West Palm Beach, and rounding up all of the Real Housewives of New York City Beauty Secrets Blog Posts!

From the previews it looks like RHONY season 11 will be the usual drinking, flirting with young men, screaming at each other on girls trips, rehashing old problems, fighting at restaurants, JOVANI, and traveling to South Florida. All the things we love!

When Does Real Housewives of New York City Season 11 Start?

Real Housewives of New York City Season 11 starts Wednesday March 6, 2019 at 9/8c on Bravo.

AGELESS By Ramona Skin Care is Here!

I swear I checked the AGELESS by Ramona Website like 2 weeks ago and it was still down, but on February 24, 2019 she announced on Instagram that they are live! Real Housewives of New York City’s Ramona Singer has launched with 1 product the AGELESS By Ramona Skin Renewal Serum 1.7oz/50ml ($40).

This serum has some great ingredients in it and hopefully it will be great! I talked about the serum in more detail as well as similar products in my Ramona Singer’s Beauty Secrets blog post.

Carole Radziwill Leaving Real Housewives of New York City

Last summer Carole Radziwill announced she was done with RHONY and would not be returning. When you mention in your goodbye that you want to leave your frenemies behind, maybe it is time to leave. I’m still wondering why she wasn’t at Andy Cohen’s baby shower.

I never could do a beauty secrets post about Carole because she almost exclusively posts ads (which she doesn’t always disclose according to FTC guidelines….) so it’s impossible to tell which products she actually uses. I have seen articles that say she’s a fan of Dr. Barbara Sturm whose products Lisa Rinna also likes.

Tinsley Mortimer at a Strip Club in West Palm Beach

Tinsley Mortimer posted a video of her dancing to Cardi B at Cheetah Gentleman’s Club. She looked adorable and seriously how does she always look so young and cute?! Are pigtail French braids the fountain of youth?

Palm Beach vs. West Palm Beach

Tinsley and LuAnn have gone back and forth before about Palm Beach vs. West Palm Beach. I’m from Jupiter Florida which is about 30 minutes away so I know the difference between the two.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach is a very small island where very wealthy old people live. It’s a lot of generational wealth and there’s lots of importance on who your family is and their history. It’s more than what can you buy; it’s who do you know and where do you come from that are most important. VERY Tinsley vibes.

Palm Beach is where Mar-a-Lago is and the Flagler Museum as in Henry Flagler of Standard Oil. It’s a small island so there’s only room for a few mansions for the elite.

In Palm Beach the hotels, restaurants, and bars have been there for DECADES and everyone knows everyone and knows each other’s secrets. All the fancy stores are on a street called WORTH AVE. Everyone goes to 1 of like 5 restaurants then they all end up at Cucina drinking and dancing at the end of the night.

The Colony Palm Beach is where Countess LuAnn mistakingly entered someone else’s hotel room then refused to leave and got arrested.

West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach is near the same bodies of water, has the same weather and activities, has way more to do because it is much larger, is nice, but just doesn’t have anywhere NEAR the prestige of Palm Beach. West Palm Beach is the kind of place where you go to a strip club called Cheetah.

This made me laugh

Who is the new Real Housewife on Real Housewives of New York City?

The newest addition to RHONY is Barbara Kavovit who a businesswoman and currently is the CEO of Evergreen Construction (source). Cue the fight about who REALLY supports women and who’s the REALEST Real Businesswoman of New York City.

Not Quite a Housewife Yet

She doesn’t have an apple yet, but is a “Friend of” and I saw her in the background in a few of the scenes of upcoming episodes.

Her debut on Real Housewives of New York City is coinciding with the release of her first novel Heels of Steel which releases June 25, 2019 and is currently available for pre-order.

Barbara Kavovit also has a books called Invest in Your Nest: Add Style, Comfort, and Value to Your Home and Room for Improvement Change Your Home! Enhance Your Life! With Tools, Tips, and Inspiration from Barbara K! available on Amazon. I wonder if she’s going to give some interior design recommendations to any of the ladies…

Check out my blog post where I list and review all of the books written by The Real Housewives of New York City.

Dorinda Medley Stealing Lisa Vanderpump’s Look?

Dorinda has been wearing this gorgeous hot pink long sleeve top with a pussy bow and at one point even wore it with a big embellished Gucci belt.

A post shared by Dorinda Medley (@dorindamedley) on

I felt like I was having deja vu because I recently posted Lisa Vanderpump’s Pink Ruffle Top and Gucci Belt Look on the blog and I included a pussy bow option. There’s also some photos on that post of Lisa Vanderpump wearing variations of the same look as Dorinda! Beautiful and fabulous minds think alike I suppose! I’d totally wear this look.

This totally reminds me of the scene in Clueless when Amber walks into the house party wearing an outfit Cher had worn first. “Do you prefer ‘fashion victim’ or ‘ensemble-y challenged’?”
