Ever wanted to watch two women go at it for the same man?
If so, then The Real Housewives of New York Season 10 Episode 14 was the episode you’ve been waiting for.
Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer have never been close friends. In all honesty, it would not be a standard episode of the series if there was not some shade throwing from either party.
As such, it was only natural the pair would find the same man attractive at a speed dating event.
But the man starts things off by buying Ramona a drink. That’s generally a low-key way of telling somebody you’re into them without being left red-faced.
The man introduced himself as Ryan before engaging in conversation with Bethenny, much to the chagrin of Ramona who was already planning the wedding … and the divorce to see if it benefited her financially.
We kid, mostly.
“I think you’re super cool,” Ryan said to Bethenny. “I think you’re awesome.”
Yeah, we’re sure anyone would find Bethenny awesome, because, well, she’s a bit of a loose cannon and it’s best to keep in her good books, or you could find yourself ousted from every top bar in NYC.
“Thank you. Aww, that’s super nice,” the veteran cast member said in response before hugging him.
“‘Thank you, that was very sweet. I think the same thing about you, I think it took balls to come here, I really do. I appreciate it,” Bethenny continued as she acted smitten with him.
“It was a little romantic, walking in and being like, “Oh my God…”‘ said Bethenny of her thoughts on Ryan.
The thing that confirmed Bethenny was really interested was that she uttered the following after some more chatter:
“I’m always 100 percent honest with everyone,” she said to him. “Doesn’t mean it’s not going to hurt somebody else, but I’m single – I’m completely single.”
Not one to take Bethenny getting the man as defeat, Ramona hit up the bar to get Ryan a drink in return for him getting her one.
“I don’t really care who he likes,” Ramon barked at someone who said Bethenny was getting close to Ryan. “He brought me a drink, so I want to bring him a drink.”
“Since you were kind enough to bring me a drink, I thought I’d bring you a drink,” Ramona said to Ryan as she handed over the drink, making sure to grin at Bethenny.
Poor Carole Radziwill did not get to meet the man because Bethenny and Ramona were all over him.
“I didn’t get to meet the guy Rory wanted me to meet because he was being devoured by Ramona and Bethenny,” she said in a confessional.
Sucks to be you, Carole.
Elsewhere in the episode, Sonja Morgan wanted to get back on the market. No, we’re not talking about her townhouse that is busier with people partying than some of NYC’s hottest nightclubs.
We’re talking about her wanting to start dating again. As hilarious as that sounds, it made for some fun scenes as she and Bethenny worked on her dating profile.
It turns out, Sonja is somewhat high maintenance and wants to find a man who can keep up with that.
The ladies were also preparing for Luann’s cabaret, and they were all over the place. They did not like being directed, it seemed, and that was problematic.
This event is not going to go without a hitch, and that’s going to make for another fun episode, we guess.
The Real Housewives of New York continues Wednesday on Bravo.
