'RHONY' Reunion Was the Wildest Episode of the Season, PLUS a New Facebook War (VIDEO)

Wow. When I heard that the reunion special for The Real Housewives of New York City had been cut into three episodes, I was shocked. The opinion across TV ratings and social media was that this season was the worst ever, with the press speculating whether this failure would end the franchise. What a nice surprise, then, to see newbie Kristen Taekman, demoted LuAnn de Lesseps, and demented other cast members (take your pick) step up to the plate and deliver an entertaining hour of television. In today's exclusive episode, I break down part one of the reunion, as well as a very interesting Facebook war that erupted yesterday between Real Housewives of Orange County cast members Tamra Judge and Lizzie Rovsek.

I had a slew of questions on Facebook and Twitter regarding Kristen Taekman's seating assignment. In today's video, I discuss that as well as an interesting strategy that I think Kristen used well. Also, why LuAnn may be getting her mojo back and a VERY interesting use of title cards in the episode credits.

Does anyone believe Aviva Drescher about anything anymore? We take that on as well, plus the decline of Sonja Morgan's affairs and what she did on last night's episode that was both different and telling.

Moving back across to California for a moment, the gloves are off between Tamra Judge, Lizzie Rovsek, and Bravo. WOW. Double wow. When you're a Housewife, the network wants you fighting with one another, but not with corporate. Did Tamra make a fatal error? Was she pushed to her breaking point? I break this down today because 1) it's juicy, and 2) it's an opportunity to discuss something everyone has asked about for years ... the Bravo blogs and how they work. Watch now!

I find all of your episodes entertaining, but today's was REALLY entertaining.  So glad we have your insights, Alex; great delivery, too.  Also appreciate the fact that you're (mostly) objective.

Alex, there is one thing that is always bothering me when i watch your reports. Your mention of editors...they are NOT in charge at all. They DO NOT have a final decision about anything, it is always Director or maybe Real Housewives don't have a Director, but certainly have Producers and in that case all the decisions are producer's. How ever you do the TV shows , editors edit the way they are told. They always have great suggestions that one should take into consideration but that is it
