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 »
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?
Basically, this is a relationship where despite loving each other they unintentionally push each others buttons. Which is great for us and not so great for them. I may be naive but I actually believe Bethenny and Jason. I believe the boat story despite some coast guard guy saying they were never in danger. I don’t think it was a life or death trauma, despite Bethenny’s over reaction. But I believe the TV therapist had a broken GPS and didn’t know how to get through the water without running aground. I think that while there are “scenes” where the producers tell them what they want them to talk about or where they want them to go, that we see the real Bethenny. I think we see the real Jason too. At least as real as you can be on a “reality show.” I also don’t see more product placement on the show than any of the others. I guess I am pulling for Bethenny to get better, to get happier, to enjoy all the great things she has. Am I the only one? The ratings for this show are not good. Am I the only one watching?
Until a couple of hours ago, I’d never done a Countess LuAnn post. Now I am doing my second one in one day. The gang over at New Times Blog did a cute piece on the ten strangest things that happened at the South Beach Wind and Food Festival. I would like to share number four with you. But do click the link for the rest, number seven involves Bethenny and something about a dual purpose hand blender/vibrator.
4. Countess LuAnne can’t identify her kitchen gadget.Real Housewife LuAnne de Lesseps, better known as the Countess, conducts a cooking demo at the Grand Tasting Village, opposite Paula Deen. We know that you can’t have two mega-watt celebs back-to-back, but the fun was clearly in the adjoining tent. As the Countess tried to get everyone to join her in a rousing chorus of her painful disco song, Chic C’est La Vie, she picked up a citrus reamer to juice some lemons for her chicken and admitted she never saw such a clever gadget. “It’s a citrus reamer”, someone helpfully pointed out, as people filed out of the demo early. Overhead by the crowd, “Is this a joke?” In the Countess’ own words, C’est la vie! [Source: New Times Blog]
