And then there were two!

Brad Womack narrowed down his Bachelor contestants to his final two yesterday after eliminating Ashley Hebert — the rumored next Bachelorette according to Bachelor insider Reality Steve.  ABC will reportedly be making the official announcement within the next 2 weeks.

Ashley’s elimination was not a shocker considering how awry her one on one date went.  Brad’s dates with Chantal O’Brien and Emily Maynard however went much smoother, and in his latest blog for PEOPLE, Brad tries to explain what really happens on these overnight dates.  Excerpts are below –

“I’m told that the majority of you that are watching find this particular week the most interesting because this is the week of the fantasy overnight dates. I’ll be the first to admit, as a fan of the show before I was on it, I would always tune in and wonder what exactly happens on those overnight dates. Will the couple really stay the night together? Are they really free from cameras or is there a crew on standby, waiting to capture the next groundbreaking moment? Well I, of course, found out the answer to my questions. Yes, we (the couple) are completely alone and camera free. Yes, we stay in the same room together overnight. What happens is completely up to the couple.

I’d like to explain why overnight dates are so important and what I used those nights away from the cameras for. I wanted to take the opportunity with all three of the women to talk, off camera, so we could all feel even more comfortable. By this time, I had gotten to know the women so very well and I wanted to feel confident in the fact that, after talking with each of them all night, I knew exactly what type of woman each of them is. I wanted to be confident that I actually knew these women as well as I thought I did. The overnight dates actually gave me quite a bit of clarity – clarity that I had been looking for!”

Airing next week is the Women Tell All episode and in two weeks, Brad will make his final pick!

Bethenny Frankel returns tonight to the Bravo network with the second season of her hit spinoff show Bethenny Ever After.

As for what to expect on the show this season, Bethenny will be dealing with marriage, motherhood, career, in laws, religion and turning 40.

Meanwhile, Bethenny has spent the last couple of weeks doing the press rounds to promote her show but it’s her most recent comments via a conference call with reporters that is now raising a few eyebrows. Could this season of BEA mark the end of her run on reality television? We’ll let you be the judge.

“Will I be doing this forever? No,” said Bethenny of her reality-show career. “Without getting into the details of my relationship with Bravo, I have a commitment. It’s not like you get to be, like, ‘I want to do one season, and then, you know, you’ve spent all this money on advertising and crew and all of that and we’re done.’ And there are many things I do love about it. I think it’s a great message for women. I have developed a strong relationship with my fans.”

Bethenny also promises an honest look into her life. “If Jason and I in general have had the same argument six times over about marriage or money or life or in-laws or something, at some point, I want to let the cameras catch that because I just hate when you watch these shows and, you know, someone’s, like, broken up with their boyfriend and you see them laying there in full makeup pretending that they’re sad,” she said. “I just want it to be real and if we’re going to do this at all and we’re going to portray our relationship, I want people to get the whole picture.” Take that Kim Kardashian!

Bethenny Ever After debuts tonight on Bravo at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.

And finally, Bethenny, 40, and hubby Jason Hoppy, 39, hit a Miami Beach in Florida over the weekend and beach photos of the couple are also below!

Despite the fact that Danielle Staub is no longer on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, it seems there is still plenty of drama to make the rounds.

Days after it was reported the NJ Housewives were visiting the Dominican Republic for a vacation on Bravo’s dime, TMZ is now reporting a crazy bar fight broke out on Wednesday.

According to sources involved in the situation, a couple of castmembers were hanging out at a bar inside the Hard Rock around 1:00 AM Wednesday morning when they got into a heated argument with a male patron.

The argument reportedly got so bad, to the point that someone involved grabbed a drinking glass and smashed it over the man’s head. The guy was hurt pretty badly and needed immediate medical attention.

Unfortunately, TMZ did not report the names of the castmembers involved though sources reveal Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were spotted at the Hard Rock that night.

Bravo refused to comment on the situation, and RadarOline reported last week that the Bravo cameras were on hand to film the vacation aka there’s a good chance this will make the third season.

TELL US – SO LET THE GUESSING GAME BEGIN. WHO WAS BEHIND THE BAR BRAWL? DO YOU THINK IT WAS TERESA, TERESA OR TERESA?

Brad Womack left many fans puzzled on The Bachelor last week when he refused to kiss one of his final 4 contestants, Emily Maynard.

Brad eventually kissed Emily after she heavily persuaded him to. In his latest blog for PEOPLE magazine, Brad attempts to explain his side –

“One last thing … I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation. All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter.”

If it feels like it’s every other week a Real Housewives of NYC star comes out to declare that they do not miss Bethenny Frankel on the show, it’s because it pretty much is.

The latest housewife to hop on the we don’t miss Bethenny bandwagon is LuAnn de Lesseps via a new interview with Popeater.

Though in Lulu’s defense, she was asked the question about Bethenny. “To tell you the truth, no!” answered LuAnn when asked if she misses Bethenny. “She’s doing her own thing now, so I wish her luck. Very happy for her. And you know, we have a new housewife now, so on to new and different things.”

The countess also denies those pesky reports that the upcoming season of the ‘NYC Housewives’ was postponed for being too boring. “Well, what’s going on is that there is so much drama that they needed more time to edit!” said LuAnn.

In other NYC news, it seems Kelly Bensimon took some time out of her busy schedule of staging paparazzi shots to visit Haiti. Yes, Kelly took a three-day trip to Haiti.

In fact, the NY Post caught up with Kelly at a recent event, during which they asked her about her trip and in usual Kelly fashion, her quote did not disappoint.

“It was so amazing to see these little girls carrying pounds and pounds of water on their head,” said Kelly. “There’s so much devastation.” Amazing indeed Kelly. This would explain Kelly’s crazy tan look above while at the Thursday grand opening of TEQA in New York, the same event at which the Post interviewed her.

Casey Abrams, the American Idol finalist who was hospitalized last Wednesday will get to stay on the show reports TMZ.

It’s a boy!

Just as the psychic predicted on the first season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak, 32, is indeed having a baby boy with NFL beau Kroy Beirmann, 25.

Kim made the revelation on her twitter page yesterday after seemingly tweeting the sex of her baby by error. “I haven’t had the baby yet!! I’m due in June! But he is getting big in my belly ;)” tweeted Kim.

Realizing she had revealed the gender of her baby, she later tweeted — “Ya all are right!!! I can’t believe it I messed up tweetin YES @biermann71 and I are happy to announce we are a having a baby BOY!!!” Congrats to Kim and Kroy. She is due in June.

In other news, today is the Oscars and yes Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, will be helping to co-host the pre-show for the CNN network.

This is an open post, so please feel free to comment about Kim, Camille, the Oscars or whatever is on your mind!

Well that was quick.

With the ink barely dry from his divorce, Kelsey Grammer, 56, tied the knot for the fourth time yesterday with wife #4 Kayte Walsh, 29.

The ceremony took place Friday afternoon at the Longacre Theater in New York City, where Kelsey recently starred in the Tony-winning revival of the musical La Cage aux Folles.

“Kelsey Grammer and Kayte Walsh were married today at a private ceremony for family and friends,” his rep said in a statement yesterday. The guests at the wedding included Kelsey’s grown daughter, actress Spencer Grammer, who read a poem, Kayte’s brother, who sang a song, and Kelsey’s 5-year-old son Jude (son with Camille). Kelsey and Camille’s daughter Mason, 8, reportedly didn’t attend the bash due to a talent show.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests headed to the reception at the Plaza Hotel where they dined on a four-course dinner menu which accommodated the vegetarian bride and also included king oyster mushroom carpaccio, wild mushroom risotto, grilled filet mignon with blue potato gratin and bittersweet chocolate tart. The price? A mere $400 a plate. Wedding photos of Kelsey and Kate below.

As for Camille Grammer, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she wasn’t in attendance of course though RadarOnline was able to interview her on Thursday night, the eve of the wedding.

It’s “bittersweet,” said Camille. “Kelsey and I spent 14 years together and built a great life for ourselves. We have two children, and they mean the world to me.”

“I do wish him well and I’ll miss him,” Camille added. “We spent many great years together and we’ve been through a lot. But at the end of the day, he’s made his decision and I’ll be fine. I’ve got a great support group, real and true friends and I’m moving forward with my life. I was sad and wanted to make things work but I’m completely fine now. I’m moving on.”

And finally, some of the BH housewives and Andy Cohen hit up Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca restaurant on Thursday night. It was Lisa, Adrienne Maloof, Kyle Richards and Camille Grammer with Andy. Seemingly absent were Taylor Armstrong and Kim Richards. Kim’s absence is no surprise but Taylor’s absence is interesting, especially in light of some recent comments by former BFF Kyle.

According to RadarOnline, the group was there to celebrate the birthday of Kyle’s manager. Some photos tweeted by Andy and Kyle from that night below.
