Oh Bethenny Frankel – this is a very sad attempt at damage control. I'm sure she has her Frankelzombies out in full-force defending her actions, but just in case the message isn't coming across the soon-to-be-divorced former reality star is speaking out about ending her marriage to Jason Hoppy.
Wanna know the most surprising thing of all? She's pretty much blaming Jason for making the divorce hard. Start rolling your eyes now! "I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," Bethennywhines to People. "I wrote that entire [divorce] statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."
Real Estalker recently unleashed some juicy details on Lady Lydia's new home. And allegedly she is renting just for filming purposes. "During filming" The McLaughlins "occupied a luxuriously appointed rented residence in the exclusive Ritz Cove enclave in Dana Point, the same affluent beach side enclave where HousewifeAlexis Bellino and her husband Jim leased a house during the taping of the seventh season."
Both parties have filed legal documents saying they agree to the divorce based on an "irretrievable breakdown" of their marriage. However there are still lose ends being worked out, reports TMZ. Despite a prenup signed before they married, a division of property is still being negotiated. Also not finalized is a custody agreement concerning daughter Bryn, who turns three next month.
Immediately we are transported to a deep underground tunnel of despair where Tamra is sitting at the head of the table deliberating over can stay and who can go. Lucky Alexis was plucked from group and exiled. Her angel wings spread and her golden halo glowed as she floated above the riff-raff into the parking lot. Gretchen Rossi clapped with glee as if the heathens were being eaten by lions in the Colosseum.
Lydia scampered after her; jumping on Starlite and flying towards the Tunnel of Light. Don't let them rob you of a colorful world! I would have taken off my shoes, hitched up my maxi dress, and ran screaming from that den of horrors up the delivery van loading dock and right into the limo to start guzzling champagne from the bottle.
Since it was Vicki who brought Alexis we were treated to several segments of Tarma complaining about Vicki forcing her to allow Alexis to destroy their presence with her fakeness. Anyway, Vicki says she just wanted to bring unity to the divided group.
"My intentions were 'pure' and I had no ill intent inviting Alexis," Vickiwrites in her Bravo blog. "I feel terrible that it ended up the way it did. In hindsight, I might have done things differently if I knew what the outcome would be."
As for what happened: “I wasn’t asked back,” Marisa candidly admitted to Celebuzz. “It's as simple as that and I'm okay with it.” Marisa acknowledges she was hoping for another season. “Let’s be honest, nobody is going to quit the show unless they have a spinoff because they either need the money or have a business to promote."
The ever impossible to decipher ladies of Jersey have been touting their newly revamped relationships claiming they're all getting along famously now. We totally don't believe them, but a breather from the incessant fighting would be a welcome change!
Apparently we were right to be suspicious. Reality Tea's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that "Jersey is phony as ever!" Aaaahhhh… now that's the Jersey we know and love to hate.
"The woman are all acting their way through this season," our source shares. "Bravo has forced them to film together and 'get along'. The fans were sick of the fighting so they were all under orders to get along at least for the cameras." Just as I suspected!
