Last night was the season finale ofBethenny Ever After. And it really felt like both the end of an era and the beginning of a new one. Julie Plake left, Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel finally moved into their new apartment after a season-long HGTV show of decorating it, and Bethenny announced that the talk show is really happening.
I have to say, I’ve long had a love-hate relationship with Bethenny. I’ve loved her on Real Housewives of New York. I’ve adored her on Bethenny Getting Married?. And I’ve resented her and been in awe of her for complaining about having it all while actually accomplishing it all on BEA.
With that being said, I think it’s time for the Bethenny of reality TV to come to an end. She’s seems done. Frankly, the show seems done. And I think most of the viewers are ready to see the silly, fun Bethenny they fell in love with again. Which hopefully will happen on her talk show.
I can’t say enough about how much Bethenny is willing to let it all hang out – literally and metaphorically – and give us the very best and very worst of herself, but it seems she’s maybe given too much and it’s time to move on. I mean, case in point – do we even care about the revolving door of employees that have now come to dominate the show as Bethenny’s so-called friends and confidantes? Nope. Sorry, Jacs!
Well, all irony is not lost folks! Kim Kardashian, known for her relationship incompetence and failed 72-day-marriage, will be showing off her acting chops on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva as somewhat of a relationship expert!
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will be dispensing relationship advice as juice bar worker Nikki LePree, who is doling out more than smoothies! Yep, seriously. I must say, Kim has had more plastic surgery than any juice bar employee I’ve ever seen!
Interestingly Kim’s advice rings very true to something I could see Kim, herself, doing! Kim tells struggling model and hopelessly in love Stacy to be assertive and be careful with her underwear. “Now is the time to make bold moves,” Kim’s character advises. “And don’t leave anything on the table. Well, undergarments optional!” Practicing what she preaches right there!

American Idol winner Phillip Squared is headed into kidney surgery today according to TMZ. Phillip has had eight operations on his kidney as a result of living with kidney stones so big they can’t pass through his system.
He will allegedly have his ninth operation this afternoon. Phillip will be recuperating in a swanky Malibu mansion and recovery is expected to take as many as six weeks. Phillip’s new temporary digs are on loan from an A.I. producer who is letting him stay there with his family during the recovery process.
Good luck Phillip and we hope you are back on stage in no time!

UPDATE: TMZ is now reporting that the A.I winner’s surgery is postponed due to Phillip having a sinus infection which triggered a high fever. The surgery has been rescheduled for early next week.

Last week it was reported that Brandi Glanvilleand Lisa Vanderpump had become onset divas and were causing drama during filming of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now there’s no doubt in my mind that divatude took place. And there’s also no doubt in my mind that ALL the ladies are guilty of it at some point. I mean Real Housewives is like a sorority for adult women! C’mon, like we’re supposed to believe Splits Richards hasn’t thrown a tantrum or twenty?
According to RadarOnline’s now old news article, “Lisa told the other ladies to not talk to Brandi at all when she first joined the show last year. Towards the end of the second season, Brandi and Lisa did begin to get along.”
“However, during the current season, Lisa, who always likes to act like the mother hen of the show, has taken Brandi under her wing, and the two are now inseparable. The two have such huge ego’s, and their antics are driving the other ladies, especially Kyle and Taylor, absolutely nuts,” a show insider shared. This sounds like a case of Beverly Hills Ramonja! Eeks.
He also posted one of Kim exiting his car, titling it “rare.” I’m not sure if he was referring to the car, his girlfriend, or the fact that he let her drive it to attract the attention of the paparazzi. You can see the scintillating Kimye pics below.
In other Kardashian news, Kim had a not so superb experience on British Airways. Kim seems to believe her luggage was hacked! Kim took to complaining to her ‘friends’ aka her zillions of Twitter followers to express her displeasure.”What happened to the days when you could lock your bags! We need to get back to that. There’s no sense of security & no trust!” she tweeted.
“Very disappointed in British Airways for opening my luggage & taking some special items of mine!Some things are sentimental ¬ replaceable,” she added. Yikes! I smell another Kardashian lawsuit! What on earth do you suppose anyone would want from Kim’s luggage? Was Kanye hiding in there?

While there is no new episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight, the tumult rages on! Teresa Giuidce can’t keep her family drama out of the media for a second. First it’s her brother, then her husband, and now her daughter! Wherever Teresa goes, it seems chaos follows. However, despite appearances things aren’t as bad as they seem!
Our source tells Reality Tea EXCLUSIVELY that no matter what happens Teresa remains loyal to her husband Joe Giudice and will never divorce him! “Teresa will never leave Joe. She worships him,” our source shares. But it goes deeper than Teresa just loving her husband – apparently it’s also about her pride. “Plus, she will never let anyone see her fail at anything, including her marriage.”
Despite Joe‘s less than appealing behavior this season – including last week’s episode where he threatened to leave Teresa – is apparently the result of pressure from the show and from the media. “Joe’s behavior is off the wall due to all the TV pressure and family drama,” our source explains.
“Joe doesn’t like drama and never starts problems. He is quick to forgive and move on. Joe is not a mean person. His anger and frustration are a result of the show.” Joe may be a wonderful man, but that doesn’t take away from his DUI and his pending trial which could land him in prison for up to 10 years!
