As you may or may not have heard, the ratings for Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has started off poorly. So Brandi hypes her upcoming misbehavior on Youtube, Kyle goes on Wendy Williams to talk about Lisa and Brandi, and now Kim is on Bethenny. They are trying to get the word out about the three episode Palm Springs trip starting tonight. I have a feeling it is working. Also, Bethenny is tanking in the ratings hard and has been trying to counter this by dragging on any housewife or Bravolebrity who is willing to show up. It’s a match made in PR heaven I suppose.
Kim’s segment begins with a flashback to the reunion where Kim called Lisa out on talking about her behind her back when arguing with Yolanda. Yolanda was offended that Kim would “lie” about Yolanda saying Lisa was not her friend. You know what I mean, forgive me I’m a bit off today due to some minor medical issues that have me foggy headed. ANYWAY, Kim looks great and is all energetic.
Bethenny actually has ties to the Richards sisters from way back. She met Kyle when she was hostessing at a restaurant in California and Kyle hooked Bethenny up with a job with Kathy Hilton where she basically drove Kathy’s kids to school and ran errands. Nice work if you can get it. Continue reading
I don’t normally watch Bethenny but when I turned on the TV this morning the last few minutes of her show were on and she and Omarosa were really going at it. The clip above conveniently ends before the part I saw. But now I know what the argument was about. Bethenny went on the view and made fun of Omarosa saying essentially Omarosa was just a reality villain and Bethenny was a brand with a real career. Bethenny bets Omarosa 10K that she did not say she had a real career. But she did. The last thing I saw as the show ended was Bethenny making a motion with her hands to write Omarosa a check.

I’m 20 minutes in and wanting to change the channel. Mostly because it is waaaaaayyyy too early for Bethenny’s voice. I got little sleep and am low on caffeine. Bethenny talks fast anyway, and add in nerves on top of that and it’s… a bit much.
Her little monologue was mostly about her excitement about her new show. I can’t decide if I love or hate her dress. I think I love it. Though it is a bit too tight on her despite her being a tiny little thing. She looks very pretty, but almost like a doll rather than a human person.
Her first segment, and I am not sure if this is a permanent plan or not is ask the men. Love the theory, hate the practical application. It was Boris Kudjoe and two comedians. You can’t have comedians on a panel like this. It becomes a joke-off and not a real segment. The white guy must have pointed out 6 times his wife is black. That alone was annoying. Continue reading
Bethenny’s new talk show premieres on Monday. Will you be watching? Do you think it will last? I was amazed that Anderson Cooper did not make it in daytime. Will Bethenny thrive or fail?
Bethenny Frankel & Warren Lichtenstein in Saint Tropez
After writing almost 1,500 blog posts here, there are times when I know I have covered something before and want to link to it. Nothing is more frustrating than not being able to find previous relevant posts. Alas, I have looked all morning for two posts about Bethenny Frankel. I distinctly remember researching Warren Lichtenstein and yet nothing shows up in search, in categories or in the archive month of things that occurred. So I am just going to rewrite the gist of what I posted. Continue reading
Bethenny Frankel and Kyle Richards have know each other for 20 years (see picture here before they were famous) from way back when Kyle got Bethenny a job driving Paris and Nicky Hilton to school everyday. It seems that Bethenny reached out to Kyle to join her and Bryn at Disneyland last Tuesday. Kyle tweeted this picture yesterday of her and Portia “chasing princesses” all day with Bethenny and Bryn. Notice who is wearing the mickey ears. What do y’all think of this friendship?
Bethenny Frankel is on Ellen and it is rather heartbreaking. She was scheduled to be on the show before the divorce stuff happened and Ellen said she could have cancelled but she is there to talk to us. Bethenny says she feels like a disappointment and a failure. She’s crying and it’s sad. It must be so much worse to go through with a bunch of assholes tweeting her thoughts from their cold black hearts. I really don’t get what is wrong with people sometimes. I just don’t. Ellen tries to explain that watching someone on a reality show doesn’t mean you know who they are. Something we all need to remember. Ellen says if you think you know what is happening, you don’t.
I wish the best for Bethenny, Jason and Bryn during this difficult time. I suppose you can leave your nasty messages for or about her, below.
Mostly what I remember about June is going to Blue Bay Beach for my Birthday. Curacao was lots of fun. I am so ready to go back!
While I was relaxing on the beach. Kim Zolciak was forced to move back to her condo with her brood and at the same time RHOA was filming scenes for this season. The stress apparently got to her to the point that she walked off the show mid-filming. Bethenny Frankel was denying marital problems on her new talk show that she was filming for the test market. Nene wanted us all to know that some chick named Pam was not banging Gregg. Or Bryson. Click through to see what you missed. Continue reading

Two days before Christmas, Bethenny releases a statement that is floating around several sites saying that she and Jason are separating. I didn’t believe it. Mainly because I didn’t want to believe it. Unfortunately, it’s true. Bethenny has tweeted, “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.” I’m a bit sad too. I really had hoped that these two could work it out. Although there has been speculation about the marriage crumbling for months, I imagine the family drama surrounding Christmas had a lot to do with the final split. I’m sure Jason wanted to go home to his family and Bethenny didn’t. She seems to have major issues in family situations and Jason is super family friendly. Half my twitter TL is venting about attending family events this season and I’m personally boycotting. So I think a lot of us can understand if Bethenny was resistant.
Bethenny’s complete statement follows the page break. Continue reading
Oh another thing I forgot to mention. Bethenny Frankel said on one of her promo tours that she wanted to have Kandi come on to talk about dildos and vibrators and stuff on her show. My initial reaction was, this is a mistake. I like Kandi and Bethenny but I don’t really see daytime TV as the place to talk about sex toys. The primary audience is moms with kids running around. It’s just not the time or the place. This is coming from someone whose collection of toys ain’t no joke. I may even purchase something from Bedroom Kandi myself eventually. I just have a personal dislike for phallic toys that come in pink and purple and other colors not found in nature. If i want to buy a fake penis, I’d like one in a skintone. ANY skintone. Not glitter. I’ve been with lots of men and have yet to see a neon pink or glittery penis. I always thought this issue was because men design the sex toys. But clearly that is not the issue. You don’t see Fleshlights in neon green do you? Sorry personal pet peeve. So anyway, Kandi has been out filming a Bethenny show. These are two very smart business women and this episode will be great for Bedroom Kandi.
Bethenny has filmed her first couple of shows that begin a test run in limited markets on June 11. In this episode Bethenny address the divorce rumors. Is it me or does she close her eyes every time she denies that they saw a divorce lawyer? Do any of you live in the test market? Will you be watching?
