The Real Housewives of New York cast raved about their trip to Cartegena, Colombia days before they boarded a ship that went up in flames and nearly sank.
On Wednesday night’s episode, Tinsley Mortimer pumped up the ladies when she invited them on what was intended to be a luxurious getaway to South America. The cast members’ jaws dropped when they viewed photos of the mansion they would be staying in on a private island to themselves.
“It’s a gorgeous house that we can go and it’s warm and it’s amazing,” Mortimer gushed. “The town is awesome. It’s got amazing restaurants.”
Carole Radziwill agreed it would be the perfect escape from February in “freezing” New York.
“It’s always nice to get away. I’ve heard a lot of great things about Cartegena so I’m very excited to go,” Radziwill said.
Mortimer added she had been to the island ten times. “Cartegena is such a beautiful place. I can’t imagine anybody not having the most amazing time in this town.”
Dorinda Medley, however, said she had her doubts. She joked that if a foreign trip hasn’t been advertised on a commercial then it is not for her – and she was right. In February, Page Six reported the reality show’s cast endured a ride from hell when the engine of the boat they chartered caught fire and nearly sank.
Shortly after the February incident, a source told the outlet the vessel “couldn’t even move” and didn’t have enough life jackets for everyone on board. Bethenny Frankel, Ramona Singer and Medley were “soaked and screaming hysterically,” the source revealed, adding that Radziwill and Mortimer threw up from seasickness.
Radar previously reported the reality stars were left “shaken” after the high seas nightmare and planned to sue Bravo.
However, an insider later claimed to Radar that the network would fire the reality stars if they even thought about taking legal action.
Also on Wednesday, Luann de Lesseps, Singer, Morgan, Frankel, and Radziwill participated in a speed-dating event that left some of the women getting rambunctious with a handful of men.
Morgan got chummy with a man who envisioned tying her up in bed, leaving her “f**king helpless” and with “hand marks on your f**king a**.”
“Oh my god, I love hand marks the next day!” the outspoken blonde replied.
Singer and Frankel then ended up flirting with the same man!
The ladies’ trip from hell on Colombia’s choppy waters will play out on next week’s episode. The Real Housewives of New York airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
