It doesn’t matter how many times it happens, watching Kelly and Bethenny fight on The Real Housewives of New York City is always fantastic. I think it has something to do with the fact that they completely do not communicate (and that Kelly’s arguments are always so bizarre that they take on a certain surrealist quality that is most appealing to my oft-dormant artistic outlook). Anyway, in this preview clip from tomorrow night’s reunion special, the women go at it again, and this time, we get the added bonus of watching the other ladies (and even Andy Cohen Ã¢â‚¬â€ who fails magnificently) pipe up and lend their opinions to the situation. Needless to say, there’s little resolution.
Oh, and don’t think this is the only goodie I have in store for you. After the jump, a hostile clip of all the women ganging up on Countess LuAnn. It’s memorable for a lot of things, but mostly a frustrated Andy Cohen raising his eyebrows and full-on whining the words, “Can I speak? Can I speak?” Next time, Andy, just bring a whistle and be done with it.
Actually, what’s truly most noteworthy about the above clip is that Kelly raises the smartest question of all: who cares? Obviously, we all care because these women are our entertainment. But if it were my circle of friends, I too would want to say “Who cares?” Why must we air out all these petty differences? To what end? Of course, since Kelly is completely inarticulate, her question comes off as flippant and dismissive; so her point is lost on the crowd. But I have to give credit where credit is due: these women really shouldn’t be so wrapped up in all this junk.
But I’m glad that they are!
