The “Real Housewives of New York” premiered last night down one Sagittarius and up one Virgo. Dorinda Medley left the show, leaving Sonja Morgan as the sole Sagittarius cast member, and Eboni K. Williams joined Leah McSweeney as the second Virgo “housewife.”
Eboni is actually the third Virgo to hold an apple. She shares her birthday with Aviva Drescher. I suppose that gives her a “leg up” on the competition. Get it? Get it?
Anyway, Andy Cohen must be consciously recruiting Virgo natives after the great exodus of Virgo “housewives” from the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.” At one time, four Virgo housewives made up the bulk of the RHOBH cast. They were methodically replaced with several Cancer women, although Sutton Stracke was recently added to the roster to restore some balance to the Bravo universe.
I think I’m going to like Eboni. A quick image search of her on Google turned up an old news clip where she was practicing her political punditry by criticizing Donald Trump’s whitewashing of the Charlottesville rallies. I suppose that doesn’t bode well for Ramona Singer who has alluded to the fact that she voted for Trump. I hope Eboni tears her a new one. I normally don’t condone violence, but Ramona wouldn’t feel a thing if the amount of Botox in her body during Sonja’s patio luncheon was any indication of how she’s feeling lately. She looked as if she was recovering from a lobotomy.
I’ll try to remember to have a look at Eboni’s chart and write up a decent profile of her on her birthday. Until then, I’m just going to enjoy the fact that this show is back on. I still can’t bring myself to watch “New Jersey,” and with “Atlanta” wrapping up and “Dallas” almost finished for another season, I’m going to need something to occupy my time while I wait for everything to get back to normal. I need to thank my lucky stars that these shows exist because they really do make me happy at a time when I could use a diversion from the real world.
