Thomson criticized the show while talking to a New York Post photographer outside the high-end Japanese restaurant BondST in 뉴욕시.
The reality TV star specifically called Sonja Morgan’s engagement to Harry Dubin during season 12 “fake.” Dubin proposed to Morgan while Luann de Lesseps was crying over her breakup with Jacques Azoulay.
“It was completely staged and totally fake,” Thomson 콘센트에 말했다. “It was a ring that Ramona was wearing. And she took it off and gave it to Harry to pretend that it was his … it was oneupmanship.”
“The authenticity is missing,” 그녀가 말했다. “The women were self-producing, and many storylines were forced and contrived.”
Thomson originally left “RHONY” 에 2015, but has since made appearances on the reality TV show.
Thomson did defend the women who decide to join the “진짜 주부들” franchise and instead laid the blame on the “machine.”
“Generally speaking, the women that join the show are not self-absorbed, catty, horrible people. They’re birds in gilded cages. They go in there with the right intention, but then you get sucked into this system of what the viewers want,” Thomson said. “These women are part of a machine that has awarded them and fed them for outrageous behavior. It’s a career. It’s their check. And they don’t have other jobs outside of it. And so you become a product of the environment of what the fan is looking for.
“Let’s be honest: Watching women behaving well and doing great things for each other doesn’t make must-see TV.”
She also blamed the audience.
“You can’t really talk about the people without talking about the system,” Thomson said. “Everybody has culpability in this … the viewers, 네트워크, the women on the show. We’re all complicit.”
