The Real Housewives of New York City are also The Real Housewives of the Hamptons in the Summer!
Many of The Real Housewives of New York stars have homes in the Hamptons. Just about every season we see the ladies spend time there, since the show first started ten years ago. Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer, LuAnn De Lesseps, all have homes there. Even Andy Cohen has a summer home in Sag Harbor. It was reported by the New York Post that Bethenny recently purchased a new home in the Hamptons as an investment property. Apparently it once was a bed and breakfast, and is known as the Morning Glory House. It’s 4,239 square feet and features seven bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms. Nice!
According to The Daily Dish, Ramona Singer went from renovating her Upper East Side apartment in New York City to doing renovations on her Hamptons home. Ramona shared on Instagram, that the Hamptons is her “happy place.”
Apparently Ramona recently renovated her six-bedroom, six-bathroom Hamptons home and transformed it into a lighter, brighter, sleeker, and more modern mansion. At first she was only going to remodel the kitchen and give it a facelift. Ramona explained, “I only really wanted to do the kitchen. It just was looking old and tired. Kind of looked like an Italian villa, and I wanted more updated.”
Ramona also enlisted the help of friend and former RHONY co-star, Jill Zarin. She added chic gray rugs from Jill Zarin’s eSaleRugs collection. “Jill Zarin, I went to her New York City apartment, she had these great rugs. They were Jill Zarin rugs designed for eSaleRugs. So all the rugs here on the main floor are from her company, and they’re fabulous.” Jill also recently told The Daily Dish that Ramona indeed did get inspired by the collection. Jill stated, “She really did love them. And the reason I know is she went and asked me for another one because she wanted to expand that look into another room because she loved it so much.”
The Hamptons are beautiful! I went last summer and enjoyed it. It’s no surprise that us New Yorkers enjoy it when the weather is warm and we need a getaway from the city. All of the RHONY stars have gorgeous homes in the Hamptons. Bethenny is quite the businesswoman these days, and she is being super smart by buying investment properties. She’s going to continue being successful by doing that. I also love that Ramona and Jill are doing business together and supporting one another. It’s nice that Bethenny, Ramona and Jill are on good terms right now. The Real Housewives of New York OG’s! They need an OG reunion!
