Bethenny Frankel, the self-anointed Queen of TMI, opens up to Redbook magazine about her sex life since having daughter Bryn Hoppy almost a year ago.
Bethenny doesn’t sugarcoat things when she talks about what sex was like for her after giving birth. “It was like sticking my foot in a pool of cold water,” she tells Redbook. “I could have gone on forever not having sex. It wasn’t a personal thing toward my husband — I think Jason’s the sexiest man alive. But it was kind of nice to be like, ‘Nope, store’s closed.'”
And even though she delivered via C-section, Bethenny reveals sex was still painful at first. “It doesn’t matter where the baby comes out; they still cut stuff,” she says, adding that the biggest initial discomfort came from vaginal dryness. “It was kind of like being a virgin,” says Bethenny. “We had to tread lightly.”
Fast forward to today and Bethenny states she and hubby Jason Hoppy are getting back to normal. “If it’s date night, I’m putting on lingerie and we’re having sex,” she says.”If it’s the weekend and our schedules aren’t crazy, we’re having sex. But the fact that I’m even using the term ‘date night’ shows how different things are now.”
Bethenny also reveals baby number 2 might just be around the corner for her and Jason. “We throw caution to the wind and use the withdrawal method now,” says Bethenny. “If we got pregnant again, we’d be happy.”
On the 9th episode this season, with Gina gone, Bethenny begins her search for a new nanny, and as her business continues to prosper, an inspired Bethenny has dinner with her foodie pal Nick and serves up some life advice for him. Meanwhile, Bethenny is not happy that Skating with the Stars judge Johnny Weir is not on her side.
The new episode airs at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.

Just like that, the sixth season of the Bad Girls Club has come to an end.
Tonight, all the Bad Girls from this season reunite for an Oxygen photo shoot before the remaining roommates say goodbye. There’s much more snapping than clicking, however, as Nikki pushes Wilmarie to her breaking point. The new episode airs at 9/8c on Oxygen. A preview clip is below.
Meanwhile, this season has brought us crazy fights, crazy pranks , crazy bad girls and even crazier replacements. At this point, this show is similar to the animal planet as it’s pretty much the survival of the fittest. I can only imagine this is what a women’s prison feels like. Jade going home on the first episode was pretty weak in my opinion as she talked a big game but couldn’t back it up. Sydney also leaving early seemed like a cop out. While it’s understandable the girls don’t want to be in the nut house, this is what they signed up for and they should stick it out.
Least Favorite – This is a tough one as there are so many to choose from. Char was pretty awful as so were her minions, and I still don’t understand how being a 27-year-old in the BGC house is a good thing. Definitely nothing to brag about… at all. Nikki was extremely annoying early on, then grew on me and most fans, only to revert back to her old ways towards the end of the season. It was funny when she was picking on the uber annoying Jennifer and Char, who both deserved it, but picking on Wilma and Lauren was uncalled for. And speaking of Jennifer, I think she definitely wins the award for my least favorite. She was just awful. She might just be the worst bad girl ever in the show history. And the audacity of her to try to poke fun at Wilma by calling her a replacement. Hello! So are you! She was all talk and fluff, and added nothing to the show but her extreme annoyance. In fact, I think Jennifer might be one of the worst reality stars in the history of mankind.
Favorite – This is a toss up between Lauren and Wilma. Lauren gets points for standing up to Nikki towards the end of the season, thus proving she is no one’s minion. Plus Lauren also stood up to Char early on this season when Char tried to make her a minion. Lauren definitely proved she’s her own person. Wilma is simply awesome for standing her ground, sending Jen packing and most importantly, pummeling Nikki, not once, not twice, but three times and getting the best of her each time. Does Nikki even know how to throw a punch? That linebacker appearance and walk is extremely deceiving. Similar to Lauren, Wilma gets major kudos for being her own person and standing up to Nikki at every chance. I think I will have to go with Wilma for my favorite this season.
The Latest – Following filming, Lauren and Nikki became BFFs once again but Lauren has since ended the friendship since the latest episodes started airing. According to Lauren, she did not know Nikki was doing a lot of smack talking about her behind her back. Unfortunately, the reunion show was filmed weeks ago before the cast could view all the episodes (really Oxygen?) so expect to see Lauren and Nikki being BFFs when that airs starting next week. As for Char, pretty much everyone hates her with the exception of Nikki. And come to think of it, pretty much everyone hates Nikki with the exception of Char. Guess they kind of deserve each other. Jessica and Kori are no longer Team Char and are not happy at being called her minions. Well if the title fits. Lauren and Wilma are still pals and according to the rumor mill, Sydney beat up fought Char during the reunion show. According to unconfirmed reports, the new season is currently being filmed in New Orleans. Should be interesting. And what happened to the no hitting rule? Nikki has thrown the first “punch” in all altercations with Wilma and continues to remain in the house.

The task was to have each group create 4 pages of ads for the Trump Hotels. Star stepped up to manage the women’s team since she’s been living the life of lux all her life, while John Richvolunteered to be the men’s PM since nobody else would.
Nene suffered another mild emotional breakdown and played victim yet again when she simply couldn’t understand why La Toya Jackson would tell Donald Trump she wanted to keep in touch with everyone on their team except her.
“I cannot understand what I”ve done to her personally for her to say that,” said the Nene. Seriously, she did… days after verbally attacking La Toya by calling her Casper and stating she was only famous because of her last name. Surreal. The Nene is starting to give me Kelly Kirazy Bensimon. La Toya stands her ground stating she simply told Trump how she felt. Star gets involved and has the ladies talk things out, which might have been a bad strategy on her part. Nene, probably realizing just how important La Toya’s last name is, says she wants to be friends and La Toya extends an olive branch.

In other OC news, Simon Barney is defending himself against the accusations of estranged wife Tamra Barney on the last episode. If you recall, Tamra accused Simon of flipping out and harassing her via text messaging over her trip to Spain. Tamra stated he was upset she didn’t tell him about her 10-day vacay with beau Eddie Judge.
Well, Simon denies harassing Tamra and posted the entire text message exchange between the two following that trip on his facebook page. Simon posted the messages along with the following statement –
“I have always tried to be above all the Drama and lies this and last season. This is the one rare time that I have commented about her or the show. That being said… My soon to be ex tells Vicki I was harassing her by text while she was in Spain. So I decided to look back at the texts I sent her when I found out she was in Spain, and my kids were being watch by 4 different people, including a minor. Maybe it’s me, but after reading it and I don’t see the harassment.Do you?”
Well, we’ll let you be the judge. The screen shots of the text messages are below.

Those eager ones are new 16 and Pregnantcouple Jennifer Del Rio and father of her twins boys, Josh Smith. And yes, Jennifer is the one that can be seen on the 16 and Pregnant trailer hitting her boyfriend Josh.
And it seems the couple’s domestic violence incidents do not end when the cameras stop rolling. TMZ is reporting Florida cops were called this week on April 18 after Jennifer, 17, allegedly punched Josh, 19, in the face during an argument. According to Josh’s statement to the police, Jennifer became “irate” and “punched him in the face and pulled on his shirt” when he tried to break up with her.
Jennifer however denies the report and states Josh was the one who punched himself and tried to frame her, as Josh ended up with a bloody nose. The cops simply took a report and made no arrest. Josh was also arrested back in November for allegedly attacking Jennifer and was ordered to complete a domestic violence program. Jennifer alleged back then that Josh threatened to have her raped.
But here comes the shocker folks. Josh filed a restraining order against Jennifer this week and in his court papers, he states Jennifer got pregnant on purpose so that she could star on the MTV hit reality show.
In the court documents, Josh alleges Jennifer is a “compulsive liar” who concocted a diabolical scheme to get pregnant. She apparently starting telling him she was knocked up (though she wasn’t) so that he wouldn’t wear a condom.
“She was giving me sonogram pictures … that she claimed was ‘our baby’ when in actually [sic] it was her friend’s sonogram pictures she was copying. She lied to me and my parents for 3 months saying she was pregnant. She wanted so desperately to be on ‘Sixteen and Pregnant’,” explains Josh.
Jennifer has also filed her own restraining order against Josh and the two are due back in court on May 2.
So let’s tally this up. The couple has a history of domestic violence and they have twins together? Jackpot! Something tells us they are a shoo in for the next installment of Teen Mom! Not that MTV has a history of rewarding bad behavior or anything.
Jennifer and Josh’s 16 and Pregnant episode airs this Tuesday, April 26 on MTV.

First, Teresa, 38, took a shot at Real Housewives of NYCstar Simon van Kempen. Though in Teresa’s defense, Simon did sorta fire the first shots. In an interview with Popeater yesterday to promote the release of his new music single ‘I Am Real‘ (listen here at your own risk), Simon was asked which Bravo housewife should never record a song, and he replied “Teresa Giudice.”
It seems Teresa was none too happy with neither Simon’s response nor his music. She tweeted yesterday, “I guess RHONY Simon said of all people *I* should never do a song. Hmm… Singing’s not my thing. Apparently not his either. #worstsongever.”
Okay, fair enough. Except Teresa then took things a step further insulting her costar and sister-in-law Melissa Gorgawith her follow up tweet. “And I have heard some BAD Housewife songs. Trust me. xx,” added Teresa.
See Teresa hates Melissa, who also happens to be a singer with a new single whose singing story line will play a major role on the upcoming season of the NJ Housewives… according to the season trailer.
Melissa caught wind of Teresa’s tweet and responded with “I see the green eyed monster strikes again…….” Safe to assume the two sister-in-laws have yet to make up. A screen shot of the tweets below –
Meanwhile, the AMNY site is reporting that we can expect to see a whole lot more of Albieand Chris Manzo when the third season of the NJ Housewives premieres May 16.
Albie reveals he and his younger brother filmed “a lot more” this season with their motherCaroline Manzo. “At this point, I think it’s become a family experience — it’s what separates us more from the other ‘Housewives’ shows,” said Albie.
As for what we can expect this season, Albie teases, “You’ve got to wait and see.”
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? TEAM TERESA OR TEAM SIMON/MELISSA? HAPPY TO SEE MORE OF THE MANZO BROTHERS?
UPDATE – Teresa responded to our story on her twitter page stating she was not slamming Melissa but rather former costarDanielle Staub.
“Me tweeting a joke ab Simon’s song is turned into a whole article? http://t.co/OkL0x9p LMAO But sorry I was NOT talking about my sis-in-law,” tweeted Teresa adding “My sis-in-law doesn’t even have a song out… I was talking about D and her hilarious fake lesbian song from last year.”
While Khloe Kardashian is used to scrutiny from the media when it comes to her weight, it seems she isn’t used to criticism about her weight coming from her momager Kris Jenner.
In a new video clip from the upcoming Sunday episode of Khloe & Lamar, Khloe, 26, experiences a verbal bitch slap from Mama Kris for packing on a few extra pounds. But is Kris really concerned about Khloe’s health you ask? Of course not! The momager/part-time pimp is simply concerned about her 10% via Khloe’s endorsement deal with the Quicktrim diet supplement. Kris accuses Khloe of sabotaging the brand.
“You don’t care and it’s very very upsetting to me because I’ve worked so hard at creating what I think is a great deal for you girls and you’re not pulling your end of the weight,” says Kris to Khloe in the sneak preview of the all-new episode. “I feel like you could not chat about how many cookies you’re eating in between meals [to the media]…”
Khloe however gets defensive as she feels torn due to her struggle in wanting to maintain a healthy weight and her effort to conceive a baby with hubby Lamar Odom.
“To tell me I’m ruining a whole brand because of my weight gain makes me feel like s–t. Get over yourself. You’re such a f–king raging lunatic and you’re so evil,” snipes Khloe to mom Kris. “I’m too f–king fat, too f–king that. Do you want me to get pregnant? Do you want me to lose weight? You tell me you want me to have a baby every second, but I can’t be on some crazy diet. I just don’t get what you want out of me!”
A preview clip of the convo is below. The new episode of Khloe & Lamar airs Sunday night at 10/9c on E!.
In other Khloe news, she is getting ready to take a dip into the acting pond. It was announced this week that she will appear on the April 25 episode of Law & Order: Los Angeles.

On April 13, 2011, RonAnn Meyerssued both Gretchen and beauSlade Smileyfor breach of oral contract and fraud/deceit for cutting her out of the Gretchen Christine Beaute makeup line. RonAnn is asking for $100,000 in damages after alleging she came up with the idea for the make-up line and agreed to be an equal partner with Gretchen only to be defrauded.
RonAnn also alleged she and Gretchen each deposited $5,000 into a joint business account but at a later date, Gretchen cleared out the remaining $2100 in the account without informing her.
In Gretchen’s response via her blog, she claims this is nothing but a shakedown from RonAnn and levies some accusations of her own. Gretchen claims RonAnn abandoned the business and only decided to complain after seeing how successful her brand had become. As for the allegation that she cleaned out the joint account, Gretchen claims it was done to put an end to the monthly account fees and that she only did it after failed attempts to get in touch with RonAnn. The full response is below –
“Since I have received so many questions from the media, and questions from my loyal fans and followers regarding the recent claims against Slade and I, with the assistance of our Counsel here is our formal response to the allegations being made.
Ron Ann Myers’ claims are false and nothing more than a transparent attempt to extort a settlement out of someone in the public eye. Although Gretchen works with many talented make-up artists on a weekly basis, she decided to involve Myers with starting her make-up line. At that time both contributed equal amounts of $5,000. A single product was ordered as a test sample. The women divided the product 50/50. As conversations about working together progressed, a written agreement was extended to Myers by Rossi. Myers refused to sign the agreement. Over the next week or so, Rossi and Myers encountered extreme difficulties working together. At this point, Rossi e-mailed Myers, rescinding the original offer to partner together.
In the e-mail to Myers, Gretchen offered to return to Ron Ann her $5,000 and asked her to return the product, since it had Rossi’s name on it. Myers responded in a recorded voicemail, saying, and we quote, “I appreciate your e-mail, I understand, I hope you got mine.” “You don’t need to pay me $5,000 back, that’s not necessary, and as far as the product goes, don’t worry about it, I will take care of it.” Thus, any relationship between Rossi and Myers ended. After several e-mails were sent regarding the termination of the relationship and the need to close the once joint bank account, Myers has refused to respond or communicate with Rossi or Smiley in any way. After several attempts to contact Myers with no response, Rossi closed the account due to it being charged monthly fees and has held the funds in trust.
For 18 months, Ron Ann Myers has abandoned the company, has made no attempt to contact Rossi or Smiley, and has never participated in any future development of the line, its website, its marketing, or promotions. Myers never contributed anything other than the original $5,000, and then kept the product in lieu of payment. Rossi has invested an exorbitant amount of time and money to build her brand and make-up line.
In March of 2011, Myers suddenly appeared again. After seeing the results of Rossi’s hard work, and the numerous articles written about Gretchen and the success of her make-up line, Ron Ann Myers demanded that Rossi and Smiley offer her a substantial position in the company or a settlement; otherwise, Meyers threatened Rossi and Smiley with public embarrassment via the media and press.
Since Ms. Rossi and Mr. Smiley have nothing to hide, and certainly did not embark on an elaborate scheme to defraud Myers, they will defend all allegations, and will do so in an aggressive manner to protect the good name of the company Ms. Rossi has built. Rossi and Smiley have always conducted business in a fair and legal manner, and they are more than prepared to fight these false claims and seek any and all damages and expenses incurred in doing so from Ms. Myers.”
Gretchen/her attorney adds, “We find it sad that people are willing to do almost anything in an attempt to profit off the hard work of others.”
