Trump or Clinton? ‘RHONY’ Cast Reveals Who They Voted For on Reunion (VIDEO)
And somewhere in the midst of all the romance talk, things got political.
Well, it wasn’t totally random — the subject of politics came up during the segment on Carole, who was particularly outspoken during the season due to her involvement in the presidential election.
It was clear during the episodes’ airing that she and Dorinda Medley were both big supporters of Hillary Clinton.
Additionally, once Donald Trump won the presidency, both ladies were open about their shock and dismay at the results.
On the other hand, the rest of their castmates were curiously tight-lipped about where they stood on the situation.
But no longer!
In Wednesday’s special, the cast was put on the spot by a fan, who probed into their relationships with the two candidates — as fellow NYC residents — and outright asked who they voted for.
Obviously, Carole and Dorinda confirmed they’d voted Clinton, while Bethenny revealed she too cast her ballot for the Democratic nominee.
That said, she also made it clear she wasn’t happy with either option.
"I didn't like this election, I didn't like my choices, I didn't think it was an ideal situation, but there you have it," she reasoned.
The Skinnygirl mogul also shared her history with Trump, whom she once met briefly on the street in the Big Apple.
Ramona Singer, on the other hand, has more of a familiarity with the now-president, as she detailed knowing him by visiting Mar-a-Lago “a number of times.”
You’d think that would lead her into confirming she voted for the former Celebrity Apprentice host, but the 60-year-old dodged the question.
“As far as voting, I'm not going there, I'm pleading the fifth, it's just such a hot topic," she stated hurriedly.
On the same page was her partner in crime Sonja Morgan, who opted out of answering, only saying she worked as a “concierge” for Donald years ago, which is why she has a framed photo of him on her piano.
She also detailed her lunches with Ivana Trump and her children in the past. Huh?
Luann de Lesseps isn’t nearly as tied to either politician, though she did concede to meeting both of them at different events through the years.
Much like Ramona, she “plead the fifth” on this one, too.
Now, what about Tinsley? Would she be the tiebreaker?
Not so much, seeing as the 42-year-old “wasn’t able to vote.” Why?
She said,“[I was] a Florida resident still and I didn't do it in time to get the ballot in.”
In other words, she didn’t request her absentee ballot in time to follow through on her civic duty — something that horrified many of her castmates, especially Carole.
The new addition tried to shut the outrage down by insisting that politics is “not my thing,” but that didn’t work.
Ultimately, Andy Cohen seemed pleased with the results of the survey, which Carole pointed out were very clear — despite all of the omissions.
“Don't you feel like the people who said ‘I'm not going to say’ voted for Trump?" she noted.
Andy agreed, adding it appeared to be split Republican and Democrat, and the ladies didn’t argue. So there you have it!
