It feels like a real estate them today on Tamara Tattles. Let’s move for now to NYC where Bethenny has listed her Tribeca Apartment with Fredrik Eklund. This is the apartment filled with all the bad juju between Bethenny and Jason during what will go down in history books as the worst divorce ever in American history if Bethenny has her pen on the future history books of America.
Of course she chose to list the property with our own, Fredrik Eklund. Fredrik posts, “Thank you for trusting me to sell your apartment, Bethenny. 😁 I just listed 195 Hudson Street in TriBeCa at $6,950,000! A gorgeous, newly renovated 3,600 sq ft corner 4-bedroom loft with private parking, so bright and beautiful.”
This will be the second time I have reluctantly purple penned a Page Six Story. Every time they attempt to explain the Tipsy Girl story, they get it wrong and I am left to present the facts. I get that they are obsessed with Bethenny Frankel lately, but she gives us all plenty of material to club her over the head with without just making shit up. I miss the olden days when I was either too naive to know that Page Six made up a lot of stuff or they actually checked the facts before posting. From here on out, this Page Six story will be in italics and my facts will be in purple pen.
The Tipsy Girl has stumbled once again. We’re told that “Real Housewife” Sonja Morgan has failed to get a liquor license for her planned West Eighth Street restaurant called Tipsy Girl — and now she and her investors are staring down the barrel of a million-dollar loss of the money they put into renovating the West Village spot, if they can’t find a fast fix.
Once more with even more feeling. Sonja Morgan has not applied for or be rejected for any sort of licenses, trademarks or construction permits related to the bar, Tipsy Girl. I understand that Sonja is probably calling these stories in claiming that this is her business, but it is not. Sonja also thinks she owns a Nigerian soccer team, a luxury lifestyle brand, and that the plumbing in her townhouse actually works. It is delusions such as these that continue to insure her a spot on the RHONY. She doesn’t HAVE investors. She HAD a gig publicizing this latest venture of Peter Guimaraes on RHONY. Her decision to accept that gig has put her paycheck at Bravo in jeopardy. Allegedly. In my opinion.
I have so many things piling up in my inbox that I really don’t feeling like reporting, but they keep on sitting in my inbox screaming, “Post about this!” So I am going to try to knock out as many as I can today.
Several of you reported to me nearly two months ago that something was going on with Bethenny’s radio show. I don’t really know how Sirius even works, but more than one person told me that Bethenny’s show stopped showing up on their listings out of the blue. Among the throngs of folks that Bethenny has pissed off lately is Page Six. In August Page Six was the first to report that Bethenny had a meltdown at the Coldplay concert in the Hamptons that was sponsored by Sirius. I don’t think that is the link for that. Bascially, Bethenny was at a very exclusive concert when some women were standing in front of her blocking her view. Allegedly, according to Page Six she threw a drink on the women and caused a RHONY sort of scene. This happened just a couple days before her radio show disappeared. Both Bethenny and Sirius now claim it was a limited run series and her behavior in the Hamptons had nothing to do with the show going off the air for good. According to my commenters who wrote me there was no, “Gee this was a lot of fun thanks for listening!” ending to the series. It just stopped airing.
Bethenny Frankel’s Divorce Tour continues to rage on at any venue with a camera. The most recent stop on the sanctimonious advice train was Tuesday night at an anniversary event for Stanton Social, a restaurant on the lower east side of NYC.
In case you have forgotten, Tuesday was when the earth briefly paused rotation and Mercury fell a bit deeper into retrograde over the news that Brad and Angelina had split up. So many actual celebrities and some housewives were asked their thoughts on the split.
Apparently, E! News an affiliate of NBCu which also owns Bravo was instructed by someone to go to the restaurant party and ask Bethenny and Jules Wainstein, who was also in attendance, their thoughts on the demise of Brangelina.
For whatever reason, Bethenny is really pushing her divorce story. I can only suppose that we will be seeing another book coming from her where she condescendingly counsels women everywhere on how to navigate divorce. What is it with this vile woman who sucks at relationships with her parents, her husband, her cast mates, and seemingly has no actual friends that are not paid employees writing a book on relationships? What idiot buys these books? It appears there are people willing to do it so the “How Not To Guide To Divorce” has got to be coming soon.
I have been waiting for this Bethenny Frankel interview since we found out she was coming on last week. Not because I care about any of the shit coming out of Bethenny’s mouth but because there has been a deep rift between Wendy and Bethenny ever since Bethenny stole a few key members from Wendy’s staff when she got ready to start her own show. This also is the reason she stopped covering the housewives and had a falling out with Andy Cohen. You really do need to read that link to understand this post.
So Wendy comes out right away mentioning that Bethenny is going to be on the show. She says ” So Bethenny Frankel is here today. (Big applause from audience. HUGE. Like Bethenny bought the tickets and hired the audience loud.) So I must say I was out of watching the OC housewives and I was also out of watching the New York housewives because there was nothing that was really exciting to me. And then all the sudden the OC became exciting because you know, some of those casts of characters went off the rails (it’s obvious she has no idea who is even on the show) which is always fun to watch and then in New York, Bethenny is back and she made for good TV! So I can’t wait to talk to her about the housewives, her divorce…he’s finally signed the papers!…and her new life with her new man, Dennis.”
Okay that is some happy horseshit right there. These two women hate each other. And the audience is really odd today. We can see the clapping every time she says “Bethenny” and they sound super loud, but when they show the audience their faces don’t match the enthusiasm of the large crowd. This is all so suspicious to me already. What is going on?
I am so weary.
So very weary.
Is this over yet? I just want it to be over. I don’t think I will ever watch this franchise again.
It’s time to talk about the Amish shunning that Bethenny orchestrated against Sonja this season. I never had a problem with Bethenny bitching out Sonja for her stupid business deal with the housewife clinging idiot. She knew exactly what she was doing and Bethenny was right to ream her out for it. What she did wrong was to threaten all the other castmates into excluding her from filming. Sonja needs the paycheck and she has a kid. That was a bitch move by Bethenny. Before you put this season behind you, you really need to read this tutorial on SkinnyGirl v Tipsy Girl. Everyone applauds Sonja for quitting drinking. Ramona hasn’t been asked about anything I can remember in a single segment. So she keeps trying to pipe in about issues that don’t concern her. Apparently, Ramona was in on the deal with Peter at first but for some reason backed out. Dorinda says that Bethenny did call and say she was coming whoever she decides to invite. Everyone said they excluded her because of her drinking. Even Dorinda and Ramona who both drink like fishes.
Sonja has a crying meltdown because she wasn’t invited to the Berkshires. She blames Dorinda. Sonja tries to do a dramatic walkout but the cameras are not following so she doesn’t make it off the stage.
