NYC: I can't believe the finale already happened. That went by so fast. I think this season was better than the last for me. It had less drama, but it didn't frustrate me at the end like last year did. Bethenny was so gross to me with the way she treated Jules (and LuAnn) that I wasn't sure I could keep watching with her on. She's since mellowed (a little), and I can take her better. I've liked Tinsley, and I think she will be interesting to watch for another season without being in Sonja's shadows. The finale was implying Bethenny is "seeing through her." I felt jealousy from Bethenny when she was talking about Tinsley.
Honestly, sad for LuAnn. I think it is of course for the best, but just wow. I have no doubt that her place on the show is secure. Dorinda, on the other hand, I don't understand the love for her. I feel like quoting Yolanda, "There's nothing more ugly than a drunk woman." Not really, but Dorinda's coked-out sloppiness grosses me out, and although I am no Sonja fan, the way she spoke to her this season was horrible. I can tolerate her, but I'd be happy to see her go. I know it won't happen though.
First season ever that I actually liked Carole. She wasn't mean this season, and actually added to the humor and friendships. I don't really see the need for them to keep her though. I'd echo that a Jill return would be great. But I somehow envision that Jill coming back is like fire and brimstone, and she would take the show down with her (like, it would be the show's best and final season.)
