Bethenny Frankel has made no secret that her love life is heating up. While she’s played coy about who the lucky gentleman callers are, she stated she’s not interested in dating fame-seekers or men with Facebook profiles. What about men with their own TV shows?
According to reports Bethenny is getting hot and heavy with CNBC anchor Marcus Lemonis, host of The Profit. Bethenny and Marcus reportedly connected and have a lot in common through their shared interests in business. The Real Housewives Of New York star has been motivated to date a man who is financially stable and has his own career, so from that perspective Marcus seems perfect.
Heather Bilyeu never dreamed that when she agreed to film for Million Dollar Listing: LA as Madison’s assistant so so much of her life would change. Yesterday Reality Tea had the opportunity to speak with Heather about how she found herself on Bravo, what the show has meant for her career and as well as her personal life, and her craziest experiences in real estate. Heather also opened up about her relationship with fiancé Josh Altman, and her passion for rescue dogs.
Heather had absolutely no intention of being on TV and was even shy about listing to her own voicemail messages! “I definitely didn’t want to do it at first, but I’m so happy I did,” she reflects. “I have no regrets.”
“When I first started working for Madison he was on the show, but he wasn’t aware that he was getting picked up for another season. When I interviewed with him he said, ‘Don’t worry – you won’t need to be on the show.'” Heather says producers really enjoyed the “synergy” she and Madison had and encouraged her to film with him. “I was very reluctant,” she admits. “I had to push myself.”
“It’s really been amazing for me,” Heather shares. “I’ve discovered so much about myself and it’s been great for my business and I found my soon-to-be-husband.”
While Kristen Taekman has been posting a series of photos on her blog “Last Night’s Look” called the ‘Sex And The City Tour’, Josh Taekman has been running around Ashley Madison under the pseudonym “Mr_Big_NYC.” So we know what these two watch on Netflix!
Earlier this week Josh was busted amid the slew of names associated with the Ashley Madison leak, which unearthed him as being a long-time account user who had spent $1500 on the cheater website. Josh allegedly paid for services on the website at least 62 separate times.
The Real Housewives Of New York star’s husband opened a profile under the name Mr_Big_NYC which described, “Looking to enjoy the finer things life has to offer… total respect for my situation and yours but looking for a beautiful sexy woman, who wants to be treated like a woman, engaged socially and intellectually and see where it goes from there….but no stress and no pressure… Looking for opportunity to wine and dine and have discreet experiences.”
Last night the ladies covered what I refer to as administrative details, but Andy Cohen was utterly superfluous as Bethenny Frankel stepped in to truly host the reunion, which is an excellent way to take heat off your own misdeeds. Like when Bethenny repeatedly accused Ramon Singer of being nasty and having a nasty side and saying truly awful things. I was like for every finger Bethenny is pointing at Pinot Pologies of The Ramacrame Delusions of Turtle Time Island, there are four Singer Stingers pointing back at Bethenny. Honestly, is Bethenny cognizant that she is the queen of the cutting and nasty comment? Back to Dr. Amador‘s couch you go! She should just move the good doc into her Skinnygirl subsidized apartment, paint him red, and make him part of the zillions of products she hawks under the guise of healthy living.
4PM – UPDATE: Snooki took to Instagram to speak out about the allegations.
“This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up. So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website. @jlavalle5 #myfamilyrocks”
The Ashley Madison hack seems poised to single-handedly implode reality TV’s marriages! First Josh Duggar was caught, then Josh Taekman‘s account was unearthed, and now Snooki’s husband Jionni LaValle is being accused of secretly utilizing the services of the cheater website!
Reports are swirling that Jionni’s email has been found amid the copious data from the Ashley Madison leak. Jionni married Snooki on reality television last November, and the couple has two children together. They have had their ups and downs, but for the most part appeared to be pretty stable and low-key (Although Snooki was accused of cheating on Jionni in the past. #BeerGoggles).
There is so much to cover in this episode of Real Housewives Of Orange County. The drama was as fast-paced as a NASCAR race and just as laden with fiery crashes. It was hard to know where to look with all the insults speeding past. I think Heather Dubrow‘s wide-eyed, defied the effects of Botox, shocked face said it best. You know something’s big when it supersedes the glamour of a 22,000 square-foot house with its own luggage room, and a lunch menu that features “sparkle cauliflower!” (That sounds like something from the Gretchen Christine Bootay Collection).
Before all the hate comes love-ish. Vicki Gunvalson is getting into the business-side of filling love tanks and renting out her backyard for weddings, specifically the wedding of Tamra Judge‘s son Ryan. It also emerges that Vicki and Tamra attend the same church. Tamra is in chapter 2 of Bible For Dummies and is therefore ready to be baptized at the big church party. Dunking your head in a vat of wine does not count as accepting Jesus, Tamra.
Kyle and Kara announced they are expecting via instagram in an adorable video (which is below) and confirmed they are having a baby girl by sharing photos of baby-sized UCLA Bruins cheerleading gear and some hot pink Converse sneakers.
