Everyone is always trying to figure out which Real Housewives earn the most! Who is bringing home the most bacon per franchise – and the biggest question: who is the highest earner of them all? We’ve heard a lot of varying reports, but here comes another one speculating about the Housewives salaries.
Desperate to restore Real Housewives Of New York, Bravo tried to attract former supermodels and celebrity chefs to the franchise, but had to settle for Bethenny Frankel instead. In exchange, the network is rumored to have agreed to pay her $1 million + bonuses depending on the 7th season’s success.
“It’s not about them,” Wendy insists. “It’s a book about me and what I do. It’s not an exposé of her or her family.” A) Let’s see how far you get with that Wendy before the NBC/Bravo machine steps in with a C&D letter and B) Let’s be honest – no one wants to read about you, except what you know about Teresa!
Bethenny Frankel returned to Real Housewives Of New York to save her career after a disastrous divorce and the network hoped she could also bolster ratings for the sagging show, but it seems she has a case of the sour grapes over her decision. As a result Bethenny isn’t meshing well with her co-stars, and they’re also bitter that she’s getting paid way more than they are to do nothing but be difficult and demanding!
Sources say Bethenny is refusing to film certain scenes or interact in ways she considers “fake,” which is a real departure to her past approach on reality TV. Bethenny’s co-stars feel she’s acting like a spoiled, entitled “brat” especially since they took pay cuts from Bravo in order for the network to finance Bethenny’s return.
Last night on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, stars rose, hearts sunk, and Kim Richards‘ daughter got married in a gorgeous wedding, which was sweet and lovely and made me wanna be nice to Kim. I imagine that will be short-lived.
In what is surely the very definition of hell, Yolanda Foster is trapped on a rent-a-yacht in the middle of the ocean with Kyle Richards after receiving the news that her daughter Bella (soon to be known as The Disowned One) got a DUI. Yolanda sniffles through telling us that poor Bella had only ONE glass of wine and got pulled over. The injustice! Yolanda isn’t sure how to handle her children growing up and making decisions without her input. It hits her on an additional level because her father died in a car accident and she can’t believe Bella would be so careless.
Lisa Vanderpump is trying to get her friendships back on track this year, but that will alas take some time. We all now Lisa isn’t the forgive and forget kind! Despite the issues she’s had with Yolanda Foster, Lisa commends her for her handling Bella’s DUI and urges us all to remember that kids make mistakes – sometimes terrible ones.
“Seeing Yolanda receive the news of Bella’s DUI was heart rendering really,” the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star says. “We as parents always feel the responsibility of our children’s actions, but at some point they have to be held accountable, and if nobody was hurt, I am a believer that sometimes a scare can be the ultimate lesson that is necessary to steer them in the right direction.”
Kail Lowry doesn’t get out much or something. Kail and husband Javi Marroquin went to a Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field this weekend where Kail decided to get down with Cowboys and completely deck herself out in the garb.
Once inside the stadium some sort of mess went down between the Teen Mom 2 star another person in the stands and Kail was kicked out of the stadium for unruly behavior.
A person named Courtney who works for LFF Stadium tweeted about the incident and claimed Kail was wasted and acting trashy, so security was forced to kick her out of the game. Kail and Javi say she didn’t have anything to drink but was having fun when fans started insulting her Cowboys gear, and security then “disrespected” them and invading her privacy.
Wendy confirms that she inked a deal to tell her story, but insists some of the book will be about her own life as she turned herself around from ex-con to professional crisis manager. There will, of course, also be lots of stories illuminating how Teresa’s life fell apart; Wendy believes that started when she terminated her professional relationship with Teresa. Uhh… Wendy, Teresa was already headed to prison when she hired you, so yeah, not quite, but keep trying!
Last night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules reminded me of two classic movies that perfectly apply: Fatal Attraction and Dazed and Confused.
Let’s start by examining the ulterior motives of Stassi “Free Ride” Schroeder. Stassi, quit SUR, moved away, started dressing the Jr. League vice president, and thinks that makes her a grownup. Sadly, she’s still loitering outside the gates of SUR, leaning against the bar with a pinot grigio, sighing, “This is what I love about these SUR bitches, I get more mature, but they just stay the same.” You know who I’m referencing!
Stassi needs a job – because she is bored of free riding her friends TV show, spending daddy’s money, and wearing that real live adult facade. Maturity is hard – especially when you really, really, really yearn to be back at SUR, causing drama, and bitchwhipping these pathetic losers into shape like Red Heather (since we’re going with old movie references! There’s pate, and croquet! And Kristen Doute is totally going to bomb the bleachersAriana’s bar).
