The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 1 Recap: Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun

by at .

The housewives are back, and so is the drama, apparently. 

While some of the other series in The Real Housewives franchise may be running on steam, The Real Housewives of New York City is still going strong, and that's all down to just how divided the cast is. 

When The Real Housewives of New York City Season 10 Episode 1 got underway, we learned that Bethenny Frankel was doing whatever she could to help the residents of Puerto Rico in any way she possibly could. 

This showed a new, human side to Bethenny as she tried her best to do everything she could to restore some order for the citizens of the hurricane-ravaged location. 

If you watch The Real Housewives of New York online, you will know that her feud with Ramona Singer brought much of the drama during The Real Housewives of New York Season 9

That's why it was so surprising that we got to see them as friends when the episode kicked off. Ramona donated $3000 to Bethenny's cause, while Tinsley went with a cool $10,000. 

It made sense then that Bethenny would invite both of the donors to an event that found her being gifted with an award. Surprisingly, Ramona was nothing but sweet about Bethenny in confessionals. 

Meanwhile, LuAnn de Lesseps met up with Dorinda and admitted that her marriage was over and that divorce was a smooth process. The reason? They had a prenup, and she hadn't even started the process of changing her name.

In a surprising turn of events, LuAnn even admitted that everyone was right with what they said about Tom and that she just tried to move on. The most telling part about all of it was that she hesitated when Dorinda questioned whether they could get back together. 

Will she ever learn? I mean, what does that man have to do for her to realize that he's using her? 

Before we got to the big Halloween party argument, Bethenny revealed that Cookie had passed away between filming and just how much the animal had changed her life. 

While we find it hard to sympathize with someone who wails on social media about something so private, it continued to show that deep down, there was a human behind all of that makeup. 

At the Halloween party, the ladies actually scrubbed up very well, but we have to admit that Ramona pulled off her look the best. She dressed as Britney Spears complete with a red catsuit.

Everyone looked super jealous of how great she looked. 

Then there was LuAnn who ruffled a whole lot of feathers with her costume that consisted of black makeup and the biggest wig in the history of wigs. 

"Unbeweavable," as Bethenny so correctly put it. 

“I’m Diana Ross because she’s fabulous,” she said in the episode. “Tom is not in tow, so I’m feeling liberated. It’s been a while since I’ve felt my girl power.”

“I think she’s tone-deaf when it comes to cultural stereotypes,” Carole Radziwill said. “She’s generally tone-deaf anyway.”

Bethenny Frankel said LuAnn “gives zero f---ks.” 

It wouldn't be a Real Housewives premiere without some controversy, would it?

Sonja Promo Pic

Sonja Morgan showed up at the party hosted by Dorinda, and it took her over an hour to greet any of the ladies. It was horrible and rude. 

Just when Dorinda piped up about it, Sonja appeared and used a horrible excuse that Rocco could only stay there for a small amount of time, so she was making use of their time together. 

Yeah, that still does not get her off the hook for acting like that. LuAnn wasted no time in grilling Sonja about selling stories to the press. Sonja has been caught in the past doing just that, and it seems like she's always going to be doing it. 

But the big argument was actually between Bethenny and Sonja who started bickering about a house next to a highway. Bethenny had purchased a new home, and Singer did not like the place it was situated. 

“In Southampton or any of the Hamptons, south of the highway is preferred,” Singer explained to the audience.

“Being on the highway is not south of the highway. It’s just not.”

“I would never buy it on the highway. That’s me,” Ramona continued, before taking it back a little.

“Sorry, I’m sure it’s great, don’t get me wrong. You buy right, you price higher. As long as you buy it right who gives a s—? Buy low, sell high. That’s it!”

But Bethenny was not impressed and went on the offensive. 

“Great. Glad we went through this little exercise. Now I got your approval, I feel much better now,” she responded. “I just want to make sure it’s okay with you. I’ll consult you next time I make an investment.”

“I’m like you, I’m entrepreneurial,” Singer said in defense.

“No, you’re not like me, because I don’t say negative things!” Frankel fired back.

“I wasn’t negative! I said is it north or south of Montauk Highway! Montauk Highway can be f—— noisy, Bethenny," said Singer. 

Yeah, we're definitely in for another season of these two at odds. We're on board with that!
