Wednesday night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New York aired footage of the cast’s infamous boat ride from hell in Colombia, where they screamed out in horror as their ship nearly capsized.
The ladies began their journey doing what they do best: sipping pink champagne and dancing in bikinis in paradise.
“This is our element and we are ready,” Sonja Morgan said.
But after a day spent on the private island where strained BFFs Carole Radziwill and Bethenny Frankel – and Luann de Lesseps and Dorinda Medley – fought and made up, the ladies abruptly were told they had to leave the island immediately due to “choppy” waters.
At 3:15 p.m., what began as a bumpy boat ride turned into full-blown panic attacks from everyone on board as 15-foot waves crashed into the ship.
“This is not normal!” Morgan screamed in hysterics while peeing her pants. “This is like being on an airplane with one propeller.”
Meanwhile, Frankel was holding down Radziwill who was puking into a bucket on the back of the boat.
“I’m losing my mind!” Frankel yelled out in horror.
Suddenly Medley smelled smoke and the ladies realized there was only one life jacket.
“I can’t swim!” Singer alerted her friends.
The footage immediately cut out and producers stopped filming for everyone’s safety.
After returning to land, de Lesseps recalled watching the captain climbing to the top of the boat with swords to cut off the anchor “a la Pirates of the Caribbean” style.
“Because had it been on the chain the boat would have capsized and I wouldn’t be here to tell the story,” Singer said of the anchor. “We all would have been killed.”
Radziwill confessed the cast suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder once they returned to their mansion in Cartagena.
The housewives had already endured multiple verbal attacks from one another. Earlier in the trip, Medley mocked de Lesseps drunken arrest and accused her of planning to drink again.
Mortimer – who planned the South American vacation – admitted the trip was “not what we all hoped.”
Medley dubbed the trip “an absolute shit show” while Frankel dubbed the boat a vessel “from hell.”
An insider previously told Radar the stars would be slapped with lawsuits if they sued Bravo for the nightmare cruise.
