Bethenny Frankel’s new book Skinnydipping debuts on Tuesday, May 1st, and it looks like she might have a hit on her hands.

This is Bethenny’s first attempt at fiction and the early reviews are positive. The Hollywood Reporter gushed:

Skinnydipping is a totally fun, dishy read, especially for fans of reality TV. Clearly, Frankel has drawn inspiration from her own life to construct the plot of the novel and half the fun is trying to figure which characters and events might be drawn from her real life and which are entirely made up.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny she’s doing something right when it comes to branding and business ventures. And apparently she can write novels, too.

Well, it looks like Mob Wives cast member Renee Graziano has a better chance at becoming a contestant on Dancing with the Stars than any of the Housewives at this point.

Fans have often wondered why none of their beloved Housewives have been given a shot at the mirrorball trophy (and let’s face it, they looooove shiny things!).  Radar Online did some digging and came up with a source who shared that the ladies just aren’t famous enough for the show and the fact that they work for a “rival” network.  (ABC vs. NBC-owned Bravo)

We start off Dancing with the Stars with a few random dance numbers to more of Motown’s greatest gems.

Melissa Gilbert and Maks are announced as “in jeopardy”, along with Maria Menounos and Derek Hough, while Jaleel “the comeback kid” White and Kym Johnson are declared safe.

After performances by Natasha Bedingfield and the Macy’s Stars of Dance, we have Boys II Men on the stage.  Sometimes I’m a little confused about the purpose of these results shows.  They just don’t have much to do with the DWTS, in my humble opinion. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the extra dances and musical guests, maybe I just don’t have the patience for it when I’m waiting for them to get on with the eliminations?

Peta Murgatroyd and Donald Driver have made it through another week in the safe mode, while Gladys Knight and Tristan are in jeopardy along with Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower.

The “Bottom Two” couples become Gladys and Tristan vs. Roshon and Chelsie, who must dance in front of the judges in a dance duel. The couples dance the jive for this one and they both did a great job, but the judges have to pick only one.  Carrie Ann and Len praised them both for their efforts.  Len tells Gladys again that she dances with her heart, just like she sings.  Bruno tells her it’s been an honor to have her on the show.

When it’s all over, Bruno and Len choose to save Roshon and Chelsie, which means Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus are eliminated.  Gladys has had low numbers all along, but I was secretly hoping she’d turn it around and stay longer.

Another day, another product line to pimp.

Kim Kardashian and sister Khloe Kardashian-Odom hit the Woodfield Mall in Chicago to promote their clothing line they wouldn’t be caught dead wearing Kardashian Kollection line for Sears.

We had to contain the sheer awesomeness of their clothing and accessories in thumbnail size, so be sure to super size them in the photo gallery below by clicking each piece.  Be warned, it’ll blow your mind.

This week on Dancing with the Stars, the couples dance to songs performed by The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, and Martha Reeves for Motown week.

Fittingly, Gladys Knight kicks off Motown week. Gladys invites her brother, Bubba, to rehearsals to school Tristan in Motown moves.  Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus dance the rhumba. Gladys is beaming and looks right at home on the dance floor. Carrie Ann thinks there were too many forgettable moments while Len wishes he could judge her with his heart. The judges give them a 21.

Maria Menounous and Derek Hough dance the foxtrot. Despite a mishap on the stairs, which left Maria disharmonious, the judges give her favorable reviews and a score of 26. Looking flawless, Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower’s rhumba did not sit well with the judges. Carrie Ann also calls them on a lift. The judges give them a 23.  The judging continues to be consistently inconsistent.

Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas are next, dancing the Samba. Katherine and Mark look stunning and creepy in their golden outfits, respectively. Katherine certainly found the bounce she was looking for in rehearsals. Their samba is lively, fun, and well-choreographed. The crowd and judges love their routine. Len refers to Katherine as a midwife, because she delivers week after week, and Bruno felt it was exhilarating.  The judges give them a 29.

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd dance a very solid foxtrot; however, Donald will have to wait at least one more week for that much-anticipated perfect ten from Len. Each judge gives them a nine for a total of 27.

Melissa Gilbert and Maks Chmerkovskiy, the bad boy we all love to hate, dance the Viennese waltz. Maks is very hard on Melissa in rehearsals this week. He’s pushing and pushing and she’s left feeling a little bit crazy. Maks tells her it could be worse. “You could have an ugly partner,” he says. The Viennese Waltz is undeniably Melissa’s best dance. She looks lovely in this slower, lyrical dance.  The judges give them a 24.

The Jaleel that impressed in week one is back. Jaleel White and Kym Johnson tear up the dance floor with the cha cha. The judges declare a comeback and award them with a score of 29. The final dance of the night comes from William Levy and Cheryl Burke, dancing the rumba. Following their dance, Bruno says they’re wired for sex. Their dance was mostly vertical sex and groping, which earns them a 27 from the judges. Will Cheryl ever choreograph more technically rich dances for William or simply convince him to dance shirtless again? Does it matter?

Finally, all eight couples are on the dance floor for the dance marathon. Dancing the cha cha, the judges eliminate one couple at a time until there is one duo declared the winner. They’ll add three to ten points to their scores, depending on when they are asked to leave the floor.

Gladys and Tristan are eliminated first, adding only three points to their score.  Maria and Derek, Roshon and Chelsie, and Melissa and Maks are the next three couples asked to leave the marathon.  Donald and Peta are eliminated fifth, adding seven points to their score. With eight extra points, Jaleel and Kym are the next to be eliminated. The final two couples are William and Cheryl and Katherine and Mark.  William’s knee sliding on repeat fails to impress in the end. William and Cheryl will add nine points to their score, but Katherine and Mark are ultimately declared the winners, adding ten points to their already near-perfect score.

 

The final scores for Motown week:

Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas – 39

Jaleel White and Kym Johnson – 37

William Levy and Cheryl Burke – 36

Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd – 34

Melissa Gilbert and Maks Chmerkovskiy – 30

Maria Menounous and Derek Hough – 30

Roshon Fegan and Chelsie Hightower – 28

Gladys Knight and Tristan MacManus – 24
