Quick question…will Bethenny Frankel ever learn? Sometimes I want to think she wants to do the right thing. Heck, sometimes I even think she's more vulnerable than I'd ever want to give her credit for being. Of course, then she goes and does something like this.
It seems that Bethennyis more concerned with standing her ground (which, in real terms, means getting her way), and now she andJason Hoppy are headed to court. So much for that amicable divorce she kept touting, right? Unable to reach an agreement (read: Bethenny wouldn't budge on her extreme demands), sources are reporting that the once semi-happy couple's divorce is becoming more and more contentious…if that was even possible!
According to Radar Online, Bethenny and Jason are likely headed to trial. An insider shares that the pair went before a judge last Friday in New York, revealing, "Bethenny is still seeking sole physical custody of Bryn, whereas Jason wants joint custody. The judge indicated it would be in Bethenny’s best interests if she were to sign off on an agreement, instead of rolling the dice at trial. She didn’t deal.”
It was an intense time with Kody Brown and the family on last night's episode of Sister Wives, as they have chosen to participate in a panel discussion on polygamy at UNLV. Kody is concerned that it could turn into a debate. Not surprisingly, Robyn is unnecessarily fired up, Meri couldn't care less, and Janelle is the only one who comes across as sounding very intelligent. Christine doesn't want any part of the negativity, and daughter Aspyn wants to attend to support her mother.
We learn that Christine's Aunt Kristyn is on the opposing side of the panel, as is Kollene, the teenager that Kody's older children met when volunteering at a shelter for people trying to escape abusive polygamist situations. Christine's aunt is worried that the Browns are painting a rosy and unrealistically sunny picture of polygamy. Kristyn is one of eight children (her sister is Christine's mother), and her mother was the first of thirteen wives to her father. She married at seventeen and it wasn't long before her husband was finding new wives. Kristyn finally left him at age fifty. Something tells me Janelle is going to be very interested in hearing her story…
Kollene grew up in a cult-like polygamist family, and she is quick to admit that her experiences are far different from the Browns. While she's never said it, I have a feeling she suffered a lot of abuse. Kristyn shares that met Kody when he was first courting Christine and she was fully supportive of polygamy. Willie is also a panel member who was part of Warren Jeffs FLDS family. He is one of forty-two children and escaped the lifestyle with his mother and six sisters.
Not only is her R&B Album Love and War in the top spot, the singer and reality star is also breaking some records. An excited Tamar shared on Instagram, "#TAMARTIANS are so Amazing! Won't he do it! #itwasalladream"
The hotness that is Brody Jenner (I'm sorry, I can't help it!) has been on a surfing vacation in Indonesia for the past few weeks. Unfortunately for Brody, the waves haven't been too kind to him as he's been hanging ten. Fortunately for me, Brody has been posting pictures of his injuries (and his lovely body) on Instagram so his followers can keep up with what he's doing.
According to Brody, he's been in a constant battle with a coral reef, and the reef seems to be winning. He scratched up his back pretty badly when he first got to Indonesia, and then he had another mishap a few days ago. Saturday Brody posted the above picture, sharing, "After this wave I realized it was not the best idea to pull in to the barrel at onshore Bankvaults on the first wave of the set. After this wave I took 3 monsters to the head on dry reef and tore apart the same shoulder I injured on the first day of the trip.. On my way home, grateful it was not worse…"
Ouch! Very glad it wasn't more serious. When he wasn't getting pummeled by reefs, Brody enjoyed a nice long vacay in Indonesia. Check out the pictures after the jump!
Not only is Kim Zolciak the queen of all things wigs and married men, the Don't Be Tardy star also laughs in the face of the Surgeon General's warning wants to add author to her resume. Of course she does…she is, after all, a product of Bravo!
Like many Housewives before her, Kim is wading into the book-writing pool. Having already come up with her own line of faux hair and given the fact she's bottled her signature bubbly beverage, it was the most logical next step, right?
Bless the tiny rapper's tiny heart. You'd have thought that baby Northwould have given his heart a Grinch-esque grow, but that may not be the case given Kanye West's latest rant.
In case you were wondering, Mr. West enjoys getting drunk, dropping the f-bomb, and yelling at the top of his lungs about all the things he doesn't care about in the least. Now if that's not an e-harmony profile I'd click on, I don't know what is!
In her Bravo blog, Caroline addresses the multiple family bonding, therapy sessions, and misguided team-building exercises. It was so much more believable when these folks weren't getting along? How much more passive aggressiveness between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice can the viewing audience take? Give us (and the poor therapy horse!) a break, Bravo!
The Manzo matriarch begins by stating the obvious, writing, "The past two episodes of RHONJ were pretty intense, wouldn't you agree? As promised, the viewing audience witnessed a few very real and emotional moments from cast members that you would least expect, my husband Albert being one of them. I'm not gonna lie, that knocked me for a loop, I wasn't expecting that at all."
Alexis Bellino…she'd be one of my favorites on Real Housewives of Orange County if she just wasn't so wishy-washy. While she's inadvertently hilarious with her one-liners and her sometimes holier than thou attitude, I feel like Alexis is finally learning the ropes. Latch onto the Alpha…and do it better than Gretchen Rossi did! We all know that Alexis has forged a deep friendship (at least in her naive and misguided mind) with Vicki Gunvalson, and she's convinced it's the real deal. Did she not watch the seasons before she started on RHOC? I do feel that Alexis tries her best to be genuine, and I hope for her sake that she is able to stay on Vicki's good side!
Of course, as she learns how to play the Bravo game, Alexis is also learning how to keep the media buzzing. Will she or won't she? Alexis is staying mum about whether she'll be returning for another season of RHOC. This all sounds strangely reminiscent, doesn't it?
