The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Part 3: More Crazy Kelly, Bethenny Hugs Jill

Part 3 of The Real Housewives of New York City Reunion Show was almost a Part too many. It seemed like more of the same. Two hours of it were great. The third hour, not so much.

Listening to Kelly's incoherent babble is frustrating after awhile. It makes me want it to be a courtroom where the judge orders her to answer the question.

At the end of Part 2 Kelly stormed off the set. At the start of Part 3 the girls talk about how demented Kelly is and how hopeless it is to try and make sense of the Kelly mess.

And then Kelly returns as if nothing really happened. And then more Kooky Kelly talk starts up.

And Andy Cohen lends way too much credence to Kelly's inane insane mind ramblings, as if he is trying to re-interpret her convoluted, contradictory gibberish into something that makes sense.

If only Andy Cohen had gone after Kelly's weirdness with the intensity he went after Countess LuAnn regarding her ex-husband, the Count's, possible anti-semite attitudes.

Sonja put on display, again, why viewers have readily adopted her as a favorite. Sonja is a well-spoken, self-deprecating, self-aware, intelligent, funny voice of reason. Sort of the total opposite of Kelly.

In the last segment Andy asked each of the housewives if they'd return for another season. Alex and Sonja were enthusiastic. LuAnn sort of enthusiastic, as was Ramona. Kelly, as usual, made no sense, but she'd love to come back. And Bethenny and Jill have doubts about returning.

And then, the predictable end. After a couple tearful exchanges, Jill asked Bethenny if she could give her a hug. Bethenny nodded her assent. Jill then clumsily wobbled over to Bethenny on those ridiculous neon green high heel hooker shoes that have become a real eyesore after 3 hours.

And then Andy wrapped it up, saying it was ending happy, just like it liked to end things.

It did not seem all that happy to me. A happy ending would have been Kelly being physically removed, wrapped in a straight jacket.
