TheReal Housewives of New York City’sstarBethenny Frankel has gotten nude for PETA’s latest ad campaign. Bethenny, 39, was actually pregnant when the picture was taken, “It’s so tasteful and beautifully done,” she told The New York Post. “I am especially pleased because it doesn’t look like there’s been any airbrushing and I was already pregnant when I shot it.”
Evidently Bethenny, who is now three months pregnant and happily engaged to Jason Hoppy, used to be a fur wearer. She explains why she had a change of heart, “I used to wear fur. I went to a cocktail party, walked outside on Fifth Avenue, and a PETA protestor was holding up a skinned animal. I looked at it, and it made me sick. I felt disgusting. That day was a huge change, and since then I’ve really been against fur. I’m cleaning out my closets–trim, everything. I don’t see any reason for cruelty,” says Bethenny.
NYC locals might be able to catch a glimpse of Bethenny’s new billboard, as it was unveiled at noon today at 1674 Broadway (near the southeast corner of 53rd street) in Times Square.

Kim recently performed at the Splash Bar in New York City. In between her performances (yes she performed more than once) Kim announced that she is “with someone” and “happier than ever”. Bravo Sr. Vice President of Programming Andy Cohen, who was also at the event, joined Kim on stage and asked her who the lucky guy was. To which Kim answered, “who said it was a man?”
This of course led others to believe she was referring to a woman. Kim was then seen spending some time giggling and cuddling backstage with the woman above, who introduced herself as DJ Tracy Young.
Apparently, DJ Tracy is also loaded. Dina Manzo of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was also at the event.

Kourtney and boyfriend, Scott Disickhave named their baby Mason Dash Disick (and yes, the middle name is the same as the family’s boutique). Baby Mason weighed in at 7 lbs., 6 oz., and 19.5 inches.
Kourtney, 30 and Scott, 26, who briefly split last year after she accused him of cheating, have been looking forward to being parents ever since announcing they were expecting back in August.
The new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered last night on E!, and showed some major conflict between Scott and Kourtney’s family. Let’s hope all that drama has now been put to rest, now that the baby is here.

The Real Housewives of Orange County’sGretchen Rossi and boyfriend Slade Smileytook Slade’s son Grayson Alexander Arroyo-Smiley Christmas shopping in Hollywood, CA.
As we have previously reported, little Grayson suffers from an inoperable brain tumor. You can read about Grayson and his mom (Michelle Arroyo) at Amazing Gray.
It was reported last month that Slade owes over $80,000 in back child support to Grayson’s mom, who also accused Slade of not spending enough time with his sick son. But I’m certain these non staged paparazzi photos has anything to do with that story.
Tamra wanted Gretchen to admit to wrongdoing, and Gretchen wanted an apology from Tamra. In a new interview with RadarOnline, Tamra opens up a new can of worms as she once again bashes Gretchen and her boyfriend, Slade Smiley.
Tamra refers to Slade as a “douche bag”, and referred to Gretchen as “always lying,” especially about the allegations that she was cheating on her dying fiancé Jeff Bietzel. Tamra then upped the ante by telling RadarOnline: “I challenge you, Gretchen Christine Rossi for a lie detector test. If you pass, I will forgive you.”
The subject then turned to new housewife, Alexis Bellino, whom Tamra claims to actually like. “I like Alexis,” Tamra said. “I think so far she’s a really good match with us, she seems to be very sweet.”
Really hope Tamra Sue’s getting paid for these interviews, it just seems rather catty and unnecessary.

Kendra delivered her baby boy, Hank Baskett IV who weighed 9 lbs 5 oz, via C-section early Friday morning in Indianapolis, where her husband plays for the Indianapolis Colts. A source tells UsWeekly, “Mother and baby are doing well. Kendra and Hank are very happy.”
Kendra, 24, rose to fame as part of one of Hugh Hefner’s girlfriends on The Girls Next Door reality show. She later appeared on her own solo reality show on the E! network titled Kendra. She announced her pregnancy just weeks before she wed Hank, 27, in a June 27 ceremony at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles.
The above preview shows Tamra and Gretchen doing lunch, as the two attempt to put the past behind them. Tamra once again brings up Gretchen’s alleged boyfriend, Jay Photoglou. The Jay drama began when Jay called Tamra during filming last year, and told Tamra that Gretchen was cheating on her then fiance Jeff Beitzel, with him. When most 40 year old mothers receive random phone calls from random men in the middle of the night, they tend to ignore it, block their numbers, or tell him to never call them anymore, but no, not our Tamra. How could she pass up an opportunity to get some damaging info against Gretchen, who she seemed to be rather jealous of for no reason at all. Tamra of course entertained Jay and even struck up somewhat of a friendship with him.
The drama continued as Jay continued to call and email Tamra. The led to Tamra accusing Gretchen of two timing Jeff during the Reunion show, as well as some name calling between the two ladies in the media. Jay in the meantime continued to leak numerous scandalous photos of Gretchen, including the now infamous vibrator photos.
Some of the leaked photos include Gretchen kissing Jay while wearing her engagement ring from Jeff. Gretchen interestingly has never really explained these photos, and maintains she never cheated on Jeff.
In the mean time, the feud between Tamra and Gretchen has even gotten nastier based on a recent interview they both gave In Touch magazine. You can read that story here.
