RHONY Reunion: Should Twitter Be Lenient on Bethenny and Luann?

It's the season 10 reunion for RHONY and though there has been much build-up and excitement, a series of unfortunate events have occurred that may make tweeting less than desirable for part 1 this evening. Prior to the reunion, fans were seemingly excited that Luann de Lesseps had ditched Tom and got the help that she needed in rehab to emerge this confident and secure butterfly. Soon, that confidence became arrogance and the Countess ended up back in rehab. 

We soon learned the cause of her reentry into the program was a suit filed against her by her ex-husband, the Count and their two children, Victoria and Noel. Because she was in rehab, she would be unable to attend the reunion which is ironic because, in season nine, Lu and Tom waited until right after the reunion was filmed to file for divorce. It seems as though if she does not want to discuss something, she finds a way around it but in these dramatic fashions. But Bethenny Frankel's situation is a tad different.

She was attacked like no other at the reunion and once a fan favorite, she has become just a villain. She made sure everyone was miserable if it was not about her and is the epitome of a control freak. However, shortly after the season 10 reunion was filmed, Bethenny's longtime on and off again love and possible fiance, Dennis Shields, overdosed in his Trump Tower apartment and passed away. At the time, it was called a suicide but now, no cause of death has been declared. Since his untimely passing, it is reported that Frankel has yet to sign on for season 11, set to start filming around Labor Day and fans of the show are giving her a social media pass due to her pain and suffering from losing her love.

Now, if we go with Bethenny's way of life, we should all be real. And keeping with that, her behavior throughout the season and up to the reunion should be kept seperate from her personal life. What happened a month or so after was no doubt a tragedy but since she claimed she was an open book, what was the real reason she was so hurtful and cruel all season? So, is it okay to be honest about how we feel while watching the reunion or do we hold back as to not hurt her feelings during this difficult time? Same with Luann. 

Do we bash her behavior when she was wrong knowing that she was suffering and ended up back in rehab? Do we make excuses for those who would not make excuses for others? I highly doubt that, in Bethenny's case, she even cares what her fans or lack thereof, have to say tonight. Plus, she has blocked @3icecubes, even when they were huge supporters of her so that's that. Let us know what your feelings are and will you be watching the season 10 reunion. It looks to be a hell of a good time!

*Airing tonight on Bravo at 8p.m.
