Fans of “The Real Housewives of New York City” know that the women on this show love to party. Nary is there an occasion in which they aren’t all holding chalice-sized glasses of wines. Actually, they love their booze so much that three of the eight women have their own alcohol brands. It’s always been innocent good fun with the Big Apple’s favorite floozies, that is up until now.
Numerous times throughout Season 8, it appeared that some of the ladies have taken their partying to the next level. On Wednesday night’s (June 29) episode, Jules Wainstein answered the unspoken questions by flat out offering up the bevy of drugs she had hiding in her purse. Anyone craving a Percocet, Adderall and Lidocaine filled calzone? Because that’s what Jules casually suggested to the table as if if she were suggesting more dipping sauce.
“Why is she carrying around all these drugs? She’s fucking crazier than I thought,” Carole says during her confessional. Now to be fair, all the women on this show fall somewhere on the crazy scale. Carole herself appears to be stoned 75 percent of the time. Don’t quote us here, that’s just speculation. But it is speculation based on some obvious signs.
Bethenny Frankel has genuinely asked Luann if she’s high a few times throughout this season. “The Countess” always answers with a coy no, but her actions show otherwise. Luann and Sonja constantly brag about partying until 5 a.m., and their nonsensical conversations while out clubbing makes it even more suspect.
Forever calling it as she sees it, Bethenny outright questioned Dorinda and John about their lack of sobriety. When John crashed the lingerie party earlier this season, he came in like a red tornado, sweating so much through his suit prompting Bethenny to if he had just done a few lines of cocaine.
This scene caused Bethenny to bring up what happened at her Hamptons house over the summer. By the end of that night, Dorinda couldn’t stand on her own two feet and had to be escorted home. The look in Bethenny’s eyes when she tells this story — along with the intonation in her voice — gives listeners the impression that it wasn’t just alcohol to blame for the hot mess. Further, Bethenny made it clear she wants no part of that Dorinda and John chaos in her house.
It’s unknown if any of the “Housewives” cast are actually doing lines in the bathroom. Or if Luann and Sonja are rolling on Molly when they head out for a night. Careful editing in post-production could also be very much to blame for how off-kilter they end up looking. Who knows, maybe it’s a natural high?!
Oh, this all except for Jules. She’s clearly a pill popper and someone needs to make sure she’s okay.
“The Real Housewives of New York City” airs on Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
