On Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel throws herself a birthday dinner because, let’s face it, who else will? All the ladies were invited with a plus one. Luann de Lesseps shows up with a handsome young man. So does Sonja Morgan. But then Sonja’s date, Dominic, has taken the liberty of inviting his roommate Matt to the dinner. That’s faux pas #1. Matt shows up when everyone has already been seated. Um, faux pas #2.
When Dominic introduces Matt to Sonja he reminds her that they have met before. Sonja beams with pride when she remembers that the young handsome man gave her his phone number when they first met. Matt and Dominic are seated between Sonja and fellow RHONY cougar Carole Radziwill who tries to chat them up. She’s asks Matt about his modeling career. Before becoming a best-selling author (The Widow’s Guide to Sex and Dating), Radziwill used to be a model when she was their age. When she brings up Jordache jeans (that was her butt you used to see in the ads), she can’t believe 24-year-old Matt never heard of the brand. “Maybe you’re not pronouncing it right,” Matt says. The final faux pas. Hey Matt, insulting a cougar is no way to get into her jeans…no matter what the brand. RHONY airs Tuesdays at 9pm on Bravo.
