It’s easy for me to say that I enjoy Bethenny Frankel‘s bluntness, because, you know, I never actually have to sit face-to-face with Bethenny Frankel. But, when it comes to Real Housewives of New York each week, she keeps me on the edge of my seat. Which is more than I can say about the past six months of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
In her blog, Bethenny defends her “at least you know where you stand with me” approach to life, but she also acknowledges that she was out of line Jules Wainstein‘s brunch.
“I am a reality star on a reality show. Bravo asked me to return because they feel that I am honest, direct, and don’t manufacture drama or edit myself. This episode is a brutally honest example of that. I always say: You may not like me, but you know you’re getting the truth. I will forever stand by my tagline,” says Bethenny. “You will also see that if I say or see something, it usually comes to fruition, often before the audience or the other Housewives see it. Please refer to my eight years on reality television.”
Good news – maybe?! – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has already been renewed. Bad news – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast won’t change much for season seven. Why can’t we have nice things?
Earlier today, Bravo announced the six new and fourteen returning shows that will fill its summer and fall schedules. Obviously, RHOBH is on the list for fall. It will be a while before the cast is set in stone and revealed; however, when a fan tweeted @ Andy Cohen that Lisa Rinna, Yolanda Foster, Erika Girardi, and Eileen Davidson must go, he replied, “No way!”
Are y’all still with me? If you haven’t taken a sledgehammer to your phone/tablet/computer because of Andy‘s bad judgementTweet, look below to find out what other questionable choices goodies Bravo has in store for viewers.
Our favorite reality stars, like Kathryn Dennis,Shannon Beador, andJenni Pulos, love to show off their adorable kids and family pictures on social media. It is tough to narrow down, but here’s our pick for the sweetest photos from the past few weeks.
Above: Teen Mom 2 star Jenelle Evans shared this pic of herself and Jace, adding, “Time to go hiking on the trails with the Boy Scouts.”
LeeAnne has major issues with Brandi, and she did not appreciate being told she’s selfish, “When Stephanie Hollman sent me her apology email I felt like I was dealing with an adult. Someone who see’s a problem and approaches it head on. I both appreciate and am grateful for those kinds of interactions. I did feel Brandi Redmond owed me an apology. To begin any conversation with ‘you are selfish for sharing your story of being molested as a child’ is just flat out mercilessness! I can’t imagine approaching a “victim” of any tragedy and telling them they are selfish!! Of all the people I have spoken to from domestic violence shelters to attendees of gala’s raising funds for their clients – SHARING MY STORY HELPS!!”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
It must suck to find out you’re being sued while on vacation, but I can’t think of a nicer person for it to happen to than Scheana Marie. Earlier this week, one of Scheana’s neighbors filed a lawsuit against the Vanderpump Rules star for marijuana fumes, excessive noise, and an ant problem due to an outside cat.
Scheana‘s co-stars were quick to defend her. As we previously reported, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney tweeted that the lawsuit is “laughable” because Scheana is “an angel of a neighbor.” Kristen Doute, who was in Kauai as well, Peter Madrigal, and Stassi Schroeder have rushed to Scheana‘s defense.
