Wow, Andy Cohen is not pussy footing around his BFF, Bethenny. I figured this whole show would be a waste of time (lol, like the other shit we watch isn’t) with Andy doing his usual genuflecting and sucking up but right off the bat he says that she is returning to the housewives on the heels of two big failures, her marriage and her talk show. That seems kind of unnecessary, but hopefully it means he will ask some good questions.
Bethenny says that she really can’t talk about the talk show being a negative experience because it would make her seem ungrateful for the experience and she is not. She says she didn’t enjoy being a talk show host. That seems like an odd statement I hope he follows up on. Bethenny says everyone wants a talk show, and everyone thinks it is so easy. She says particularly “housewives” want a talk show and it’s not easy.
Wow. Bethenny and Jason are STILL not divorced. Bethenny doesn’t answer the question about where she lives because she can’t say she doesn’t live in the apartment with Jason because that would allow Jason to say that Bethenny has abandoned her residence. I had heard that Bethenny had purchased an apartment near to the one she technically shares with Jason just to have a place to go. However, it seems that she has to overnight in her place with Jason occasionally for legal reasons. Bethenny says we will see her living situation play out on the show. Continue reading
Isn’t filming over? Explanation anyone? Ramona and Bethenny are BFFs now?
I gave up on RHONY for a multitude of reasons. Mostly because there is only so much hate I can take. Once I no longer found anything redeeming about any of the women, on RHONY I reached my limit. I was done. But also because there was a person on the show with some mental health issues I could empathize with and most of y’all could not. But now with the return of Bethenny, and the removal of that person, I will mostly likely be tuning back in.
It looks like RHONY is getting a much needed overhaul. Which means I should be getting back to caring about who stays and who goes. Which has been the dead last thing on my mind.
But click through to find out who is currently being test filmed… Continue reading
It was just last July when Bethenny Frankel was admonished by the judge in her custody case with Jason Hoppy for posting a picture of herself wearing her four-year-old daughter, Brynn’s Hello Kitty pajamas on twitter. The judge called the decision ridiculous. When her lawyer said that it was just a joke, the judge replied by saying, “It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke.”
Yesterday, Bethenny’s fans were appalled after she posted the above picture on Twitter pimping her new book of cocktail recipes. Several comments were left on Twitter and Instagram by fans who were deeply concerned about her health. Continue reading
Well, well, well, it seems Bethenny Frankel changed her tune and decided to come to a fair agreement with Jason Hoppy over custody of their four year old daughter, Bryn. Here is what happened. Last Wednesday, Bethenny went to court and testified that Jason was a horrible person and called him “white trash” and it was very, very, ugly. There was a lot of media coverage and a lot of public backlash. TV talk show hosts and social media were all questioning why neither parent had the records sealed to keep Bryn from being able to later read about the horrible things Bethenny said about the father of her child. New York based Internet media have been constantly referring to Bethenny as a “failed talk show host” rather than a successful business woman. Bethenny was presented in a very negative way. Continue reading
Now that Bethenny has finished her talk show, it seems she finally has time to begin the formal divorce proceedings. According to the New York Daily News, yesterday was the first day of testimony and Bethenny took the stand. She wasted no time in going all in on her soon to be ex-husband Jason Hoppy. Bethenny testified that she wrote Jason a letter telling him that she wanted a divorce and that once he read it he She said her life became “brutal, horrendous, and excruciating.” Um, who writes a letter to the husband that you live with asking for a divorce rather than just talking to him face to face?
Bethenny cried on the stand as she recounted numerous mistreatments by Jason during the separation. Bethenny testified that Jason told her, “If you don’t want to be with me and you’re ending this marriage, I want nothing to do with you ever again. I’m going to destroy you. You’re already losing fans. I’m going to ruin you.” Continue reading
They are really publicizing the hell out of this RHOA reunion. Today, Kandi was on Bethenny as part of the publicity tour. First of all, Kandi is rocking her wedding band with a new engagement ring. I know she caught a lot of flack for the nontraditional one she picked for herself in Vegas. She is still wearing the old one on her other hand. At first I was worried that she just succumbed to the pressure of a more traditional style but in reality the first one was not made to have a wedding band slide up against the band of the ring. Her new set is very pretty, modest and has the pave diamonds that she likes and goes will with the previous ring.
When asked how married life is, Kandi says it is good but two days after they got married, one of Todd’s shows he produces got picked up and he had to leave to go film. Todd has his own production company now! Kandi says they don’t have time for a real honeymoon for the next five months but they plan to take a weekend trip before then. Continue reading
Well this should be good! Please understand I am not discussing RHONY here this season, so I won’t be including certain parts and neither will your comments. That said, Andy is busting at the seams with happiness. He wastes no time kissing Bethenny’s ass! Ramona shares that Bethenny sends really nice floral arrangements to her guests.
Obvi, Bethenny gets first chair, as it should be.
Apparently Sonja needs 35 people to help her function. The interns live in her house! The poll question is who do you miss the most of the dearly departed housewives? Bethenny calls Andy a shit stirrer. Then Andy plays a Turtle Time! video. #goodtimes The bartender is a zoo guy with a baby sloth named Mo short for Molasses. How adorbs!
Andy asks Ramona about her marital issues. She says she is taking it day by day and then asks Andy about his ring. This has been an issue since last summer when we though he might be engaged to recently booted DWTS cast member, Sean Avery. Andy says he just bought it for himself. I don’t believe it, it’s a wedding band on his gay ring finger. Nice one, Ramoner!
I slept in this morning and am just now getting to this episode of Bethenny. Let’s see what happens. This should be good. Bethenny does not suffer fools well, she knows she was cancelled and she is just going through the motion for these last shows.
Porsha comes out in a fuchsia dress with a super low back and 16 pounds of some Asian women’s hair on her head. Porsha said life is wonderful and everything is good her new single Flatline is out and she is happy. Bethenny asks what made her want to do a single. She says she used to sing in her twenties and make demos and send them out. Porsha basically says she made the single to give herself an outlet for her emotions after the divorce. She says that now that she is single she can return to music and express herself without any restrictions.
Bethenny mentions all the divorces that occur with housewives of every franchise and asks Porsha if the show contributes to the high numbers. Porsha basically says that with every marriage your first priority is to make the world think your marriage is great even when it isn’t. Do y’all agree with that? She says that the cameras magnify the situation. She says when she is filming she doesn’t really realize what is being put out into the world but when she watches it back, she realizes that all the flaws in the relationship are showing up. Porsha says she learned it was important to be able to decide what marital advice she should take in and what she should discard.
So what is Ramona on? Seriously, she comes out all hyper active and smiling and knocking shit over and talking a mile a minute. I’ll have what she is having please. I’m still working up to getting in the shower. Anyway, Ramona seems way more excited to see Bethenny than Bethenny is to see Ramona. Ramona says that she is the voice of reason this year on RHONY and that is something that we will all have to see to believe.
Bethenny says she always thought Ramona was the biggest asset to the show because she is half nuts. Ramona says she is not nuts, she is fun. And I roll my eyes as grown folks want to waste time over word choices.
Ramona says that even though she and Luann have never really hit it off, Luann will be seen as more likeable this season. As for Aviva, Ramona says she hates Bethenny for getting Aviva involved with the show. Aviva and Ramona make up on the first episode as Ramona tries to be more of a peacemaker, but things get pretty terrible with Aviva as the show goes on. #LegRollsAcrossFloorInPublic Continue reading
Andy Cohen and Wendy Williams in Happier Times.
I’ve been so (good!) busy lately that I have not really told you guys everything there is to tell about a huge drama that has been going on in the Big Apple between Wendy Williams, Bethenny Frankel and Andy Cohen. Well today, the battle has been won by Wendy Williams and I am ready to spill all the tea as Bethenny Frankel’s talk show has been cancelled after just one (kinda lousy) season.
Let’s start with Wendy Williams point of view. I’ve been harsh at times with Wendy (even though she has mentioned tamaratattles.com on her show before #ChateauSheree) because for a while there she was reporting gossip from a site that shall not be named frequently that has a history of making up outrageous stories for drama/page views. But lately, I have found her show to be a really fun watch. Wendy is established in the NYC daytime talk circuit and pulls commendable ratings. She is humble, relates well to her audience and is extremely good at giving advice on the fly during her ask Wendy segments. She also had a great relationship with Andy Cohen and frequently booked his WWHL guests when they were in town. Continue reading
Today Bethenny has all the Braxton girls, except Toni , on the show as she continues to ride the reality TV show wave to improve her less than stellar ratings. The important part for us is when Bethenny asks Towanda about dating Kordell. Stewart. Towanda says he is a really nice guy. Tamar jumps in and says she would not consider him a catch. Towanda asks Tamar if she knows him. Tamar says based on the show Porsha “could not go nowhere, she couldn’t do nothin’.” (Audience applauds loudly) The other sisters say, “it’s a show.” Tamar says, “ya’ll sure on defensive of Mr. Kordell.” Towanda says, “You’re sure on the defense of Porsha!” Tamar says she doesn’t know Porsha. Continue reading
