When I turned on the computer this morning, I got the purple screen of death. Whether I wanted it or not Windows 10 was updating some new program that I do not use. The purple screen of death told me, “this may take a while.” For an excruciating hour I saw my laptop restart four separate times as it slowly did whatever it was doing. This was not a security update, it was some new Windows 10 something or another. Then after three failed login attempts, I can finally stop breathing into a paper bag when it looks like I am in. Then there was a blue screen that said Hi! followed by, this may take a while. It was over an hour of me wondering what the heck my laptop was doing before I could finally get to my Gmail. I am worse than a Millennial with a cell phone when it comes to my laptop. This sort of trauma will take some time to get over.
So while I was freaking out, I watched Wendy Williams (and Kelly and Ryan). Wendy talked in hot topics about Bernadette, Bethenny’s mother trashing Bethenny to Life & Style. Wendy admits she doesn’t like Bethenny even though she had her on the show and kissed her ass the whole time. Wendy said that in this case she has to take Bethenny’s side. She points out what crappy parents Bethenny has and if Bethenny has any issue then her mother is to blame. It all seemed very pro Bethenny on the surface. But once I got online I realized I really had to search for the very brief story that is basically a teaser to buy the print version of the magazine. It’s not a “hot topic” at all. So now it seems to me as a way for Wendy to fans the flames of a tacky piece on Bethenny. #Shady
In a paid interview with Life & Style published yesterday,
“She is a moron,” Bernadette said moments after the news broke that her daughter would be on the ABC show. “She got very lucky, and she just knows how to surround herself with people who are intelligent. Bethenny is a liar and a shark. She ran through my guts. She will get along with the other sharks.”
Say what you will about Bethenny Frankel, she is not a moron. She is a highly intelligent women who wisely surrounds herself with other intelligent people who can help her succeed. That is what smart people do. Morons on the other hand, trash their kids in tabloids to make few dollars and hold grudges against their children for being successful.
The actual “hot topic” about Bethenny today is from here appearance on WWHL. But before we get to her dramatic (not really) dating life that everyone is abuzz about today, we have a housewife game. Bethenny tries to match questions about the housewives with the audience’s answers.
Who it the biggest liar? Bethenny says Luann and so did the audience with Ramona and Sonja in second and third place.
Which franchise do you want to be part of? Bethenny said Atlanta. The audiences said RHOBH (by far 48%), followed by RHONY (24%), RHOOC (20%), RHOA (only 6%) and RHONJ (only 1%)
Which housewife throws the best shade? Bethenny says Phaedra and so does the audience. I guess slander and defamation are just shade now.
Which RHONJ has the worst style? Bethenny says she doesn’t watch it that much and needs a list of choices. She goes with Teresa and so does the audience. That is just because they don’t know about Danielle yet.
Which RHONY is the biggest lush? Bethenny says Dorinda. The audience says Sonja with Dorinda a close second.
And now it is time for the question that caused all the buzz in the tabloids today. Andy asks if it is going to be weird to host Shark Tank with A-Rod since they used to date. She says they won’t have two guests on the same show. Andy asks if that is confirmation she used to date A-Rod and she asks for clarification on what “used to date” means. She says they went out twice. Andy asks if he is a good kisser. She says she honestly doesn’t remember. The audience is shocked and has a loud reaction as if they thought that was a dig at A-Rod but I think it is just Bethenny being herself.
There was a rumor going around for a while that Bethenny was dating the other guest tonight, Eric Stonestreet. I really don’t think any ever believed that rumor. They both seem to like that rumor being out there, but they are just friends. Eric says Bethenny is a wonderful kissser.
Erica Jayne comes out to play a game and Kyle shows up too! Bethenny is given some facts about either Erika, Kyle or Eric and she has to guess who the fact is about.
The craziest place they ever had sex was on a playground jungle gym. Erika
Has a Bobbi Brown cosmetics bronzer named after them. Eric
Cries tears of joy when watching a parade. Eric
Stole a fruit roll up as a kid and was traumatized by it. Kyle
Used to watch Jerry Springer Twice a day. Erika
I got them all right. Bethenny the know it all missed the parade question. That makes me smarter than Bethenny, right? RIGHT?
Andy was talking to Eric about his crying at parades. Eric says that people work on things, or practice things and then it all comes together makes him happy for them. Andy says they got together today to practice the show. So it is true, they do the same WWHL twice in LA. I can’t believe they get the people there for like five or six hours to make the show twice. This is why there were two seatings a day and I heard that only the second one airs. So weird.
Bethenny is asked how she would have reacted if Phaedra had slandered her like she did Kandi. She says she thought Kandi really restrained herself. Bethenny says she would have beaten her ass. She actually repeated it twice. The audience goes wild. Andy says that Bethenny’s fantasy is to be on RHOA. He says she texts him during the drama saying, “Put me in! Put me in!” Bethenny says what Phaedra did was despicable.
Someone asks Bethenny whose house on RHONY needs a makeover. She says she would love to get into Dorinda’s house and update and declutter it. Um, Dorinda had a major, major interior designer give her the look she wanted. But she says Sonja’s house needs a colonic and a deep cleanse.
I’m post the aftershow below. Eric gives the best tagline for his Modern Family character EVER, “If you’re going to call me queen, you better bow, bitch! ” The entire Palace Theater goes wild. The aftershow is REALLY good. You should definitely watch it.
I’m pretty sure Bethenny and Erika still hate each other despite the photo.
