After what can be described as not only one of the best, but one of the most stressful, seasons to date, it's not shocking to see that the Real Housewives of New York City Season 8 reunion promo is filled with all kinds of surprises. Bethenny Frankel herself told Entertainment Tonight earlier in August that this reunion was the darkest one yet and so negative that it may influence her to leave the show for good. She wasn't kidding about it being pretty vile, especially when a certain Housewife throws around drug accusations and threatens to release "dirt" on each of her co-stars. Those are some fighting words and surprising ones from Sonja Morgan. Fans expect Frankel and Luann de Lesseps to go at one another, but to see Morgan on the attack? It's unexpected and not a great color on my favorite Real Housewives star.
As shown in the preview, while meeting with Andy Cohen before the start of the reunion, Morgan says, "I have dirt on all the girls, I just hope I don't go there, but I'm starting to, after all these years, have resentment." I can understand where her frustrations are coming from, especially considering her consumption of alcohol is constantly under scrutiny and that showdown she had with Frankel about her latest business venture, Tipsy Girl. However, is revealing "dirt" on other people really going to make her feel better and fix the situation?
Plus, what she says to Dorinda Medley makes it so much worse. In the teaser, Medley says while looking at someone on the opposite sofa, "Why are you insinuating that you know I do drugs, that's a horrible thing." Then comes Morgan who claims, "Everybody knows you do drugs." That's a big accusation to just blurt out the way Morgan does.
Bustle has reached out to Medley's rep for comment on Morgan's claim, but has not yet received a response.
It'll be interesting to see how all of this goes down, but it definitely gets to Morgan, who walks off during the reunion. There has to be at least one walk-off, right?
The three-part (three parts!) Season 8 RHONY reunion begins Wednesday, Aug. 31 at 9 p.m.
