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.
Page Six claims that there was a contract for a full time show that was summarily ripped up after the events in the Hamptons. Either way, the bottom line is she no longer has a show on Andy’s channel.
Which makes me wonder how much Andy had to do with the contract situation. It seemed to me that he was making the decisions about who was on his channel. It was basically all of his friends and a couple Bravo people. He was not pleased with her behavior at the reunion that filmed about two weeks before Hamptons incident.
Very quickly after the Hamptons incident, Bethenny was suddenly on the cover of a tabloid talking about how she had the worst divorce ever in the history of the world and she just wanted to help the less fortunate and be a beacon of love and light for women everywhere. There there was that appearance on Wendy Williams that really seemed like something she bought and paid for in some sort of a two part deal that involved another show trashing Luann. At some point on the show with Bethenny, right at the end, she seemed to realize she never uttered the words that she was on Bethenny’s side over Luann’s and quickly got that in.
At the same time Bethenny was concerned about her vile behavior on RHONY “affecting her businesses.” We assumed it was the line of swill, and um, lunch meats. But maybe it was about the radio show?
Oh and also at this time Bethenny was posting about being happier than she’s ever been. Because, Bethenny.
