Sonja Morgan debuted her fashion line at New York Fashion Week, and the wheels nearly came off the clothing rack before the models were in their outfits.
"I'm hoping Sonja pulls this off," said Dorinda Medley. "I think she's going to pull that rabbit out of her hat."
But there was no magic behind the scenes.
"This is not f---ing happening," Morgan screamed moments before the show was set to start. "Not one person has a chignon here! No one has brought me the second looks!"
Not only did three of Morgan's models drop out of her runway show, but the runway itself nearly wasn't ready.
Moreover, the seating wasn't completed, some major retailers weren't in attendance, hairstyles weren't right, and looks were changed last-minute.
"I don't want her to be maligned and mocked," said Bethenny Frankel, who expressed frustration at Morgan's business direction before the show, banging her head when Morgan's management team couldn't say who their competition was or who they wanted to be placed alongside in retail stores.
But Frankel – and all the wives – were duly impressed with the line.
"This is produced really nicely," said Frankel. "Sonja has good taste."
"The line coming down is beautiful," added Heather Thomson.
But when Morgan's second set of looks was delayed, things turned ugly in the audience between Frankel and Ramona Singer.
"I know you're upset with me," said Singer, who was seated next to Frankel during the show.
And Frankel was: She was miffed that Singer not only "stole two dresses" from her former talk show but also that she learned Singer had told people that Frankel had cheated on her first husband.
"That didn't happen," said an incensed Frankel. "You're just going to run off and say nasty things."
"I don't want to go there," said Singer.
"But you did go there," replied Frankel. "It's nasty, entitled and selfish."

"People called and said, 'That Bethenny acts like something she's not,' " responded Singer.
"I wouldn't do that," said Frankel.
"I'm not perfect … crucify me," said Singer. "Let's not throw stones in glass houses."
