Stinky Vacation

Glamorous 'RHONY' Cast Literally Poop Their Pants During Disastrous Colombia Trip

The 'Housewives' feared for their lives on boat trip.


In February, the disastrous Real Housewives of New York City trip to Colombia made headlines. The glamorous housewives took a “boat trip from hell.” The waters got so rough that the cast members feared for their lives and Bravo had to turn off the cameras. The episode finally aired last night, August 1. Watch the clip above to see some of the footage of Luann de Lesseps, Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Sonja Morgan, Ramona Singer, Tinsley Mortimer, and Dorinda Medley as they panic.

But that wasn’t the only terrible part of their last days in Cartagena. When the episode cut to 17 hours after the trip and the woman were getting ready to leave, the Housewives revealed the boat ride was even more stinky than it appeared. Almost the entire cast got raging diarrhea, and some of them even pooped themselves in their hotel!

As they were packing, the women tried to figure out what it was that gave them stomach problems and whether it was the food or the water. Sonja revealed that someone stole her toilet paper, so she stole Bethenny’s.

The camera panned to a “poop smear” on the floor, as the women tried to assign blame to each other for it. Sonja yelled out, “We are swimmin’ in s—t!”

She also mentioned the moment on Twitter, using #poopsmear.

Luann, as she boarded an SUV, was apologetic that she left her bed a smelly, brown mess after her stomach issues.

The woman also opened up about what else happened after the cameras cut off. Carole was on the floor puking and said in her confessional that she was barely conscious of anything else. Bethenny, despite their fight, was holding back her hair. She tweeted while the episode aired, “Friends don’t let friends get vomit in their hair….”

Luann said she was, “Praying the boat [was] not gonna cap size.”

Tinsley was the only one who wasn’t afraid. She told the camera, “I did not fear for my life.” The socialite had been to Colombia many times before, and tried to convince the cast the turbulence was normal.

Dorinda appeared on Watch What Happens Live after the show and talked more to Andy about what went down. She said none of them were hurt, and that once they reached land they were all stunned into silence.

She also told Andy that she hasn’t spoken to Luann since March 4, when they stopped filming. She said that neither she nor any of the other Housewives have any idea what’s happening with the “Money Can’t Buy You Class” singer. Star readers know that she’s leaving rehab to continue her cabaret tour this weekend.

Dorinda and Luann got into a huge blowup fight about Dorinda’s drinking during last week’s episode. The Countess checked into rehab in mid-July amid a relapse and family lawsuit.
