Real Housewives of New York

Jill Zarin is at it again!

According to the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, the Real Housewives of New York City star is angling for her own solo reality show.

The mag reports Jill, 46, is taking meetings “about her own reality show.” An insider states, “She likes the title: Jill Gets a Hobby” (a play on words stemming from Bethenny Frankel’s comments telling her to “get a hobby” last season.

“Jill wants it to focus on her and her sister (lawyer Lisa Wexler whom Jill wrote a book with) but her sister is boring,” says the source. “Jill feels done with Bravo after last season. She thinks Bethenny and Andy Cohen conspired to make Bethenny look like a victim.”

Jill’s rep is however denying the story, telling HollywoodLife that UsWeekly’s story is “totally fabricated.”  For some odd reason, we will choose to believe UsWeekly over Jill.

In other NYC news, Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is angling to appear on broadway according to her rep, who tells RadarOnline LuAnn wants to expand her brand by taking to the stage.

“She’s very adventurous and wants to try something new,” her rep said. “She’s had a few meetings for a couple of potential Broadway projects, including ‘Chicago’ and ‘La Cage Aux Folles.’ It’s something she’s definitely looking into.”

The rep however adds LuAnn cannot officially do anything until she finishes filming the 4th season of the NYC Housewives in Januray.  Umm good luck with that Lulu.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE JILL IS TRYING TO GET HER OWN SPIN-OFF? WOULD YOU WATCH LUANN ON BROADWAY?

Will she or won’t she? Is the question when it comes to Bethenny Frankel having a second baby.

The Real Housewives of New York City star stated a few months ago that she was likely done having children, but in a new interview with OK magazine, Bethenny, 39, mentions having another baby is still an option with hubby Jason Hoppy.

“Jason wants to have another baby, and I’m not sure, so the breast pump and the newborn clothes are in purgatory for who knows what will happen next,” she says.

She adds, “I’m almost 40, and it’s a decision that we’re talking about. It’s a conversation that needs to be had. I have a five-month-old baby, so I haven’t made that decision yet.”

Bethenny, who shares that 5-month-old Bryn has began rolling over, also states that she is lucky to have Jason as her partner. “Jason does everything,” she says. “He changes diapers, he watches her. We both do everything. I was told before I got into a relationship that if you want to have a child, you need a good partner. You could do it alone – I was prepared to do it alone – but it does help. There’s a lot to do, and you want someone who cares as much as you do about your child, so that’s the deal.”

In other NYC news, just days after Life&Style broke the news that Ramona Singer physically attacked a producer on the Real Housewives of NYC, UsWeekly is also confirming that Ramona did indeed hit the producer, except it wasn’t a slap but rather a punch!

“She was furious and felt like the producers were ganging up on her,” says one insider. “She literally lost her mind.” Ramona, 53, was reportedly shooting with Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord when she lost it.

“No one is really sure what exactly spurred her craziness,” a second source tells US. “But she got herself worked up over filming this scene and one thing led to another, and she punched the producer. Literally.”

With only one month into shooting, the producers are now trying “to mediate the situation so the cast all stays filming.” And somewhere in NYC, Kelly Bensimon is celebrating no longer being the lone crazy pants on the show.

The 4th season of the Real Housewives of NYC began filming weeks ago and so far not much as leaked out about the upcoming season, well that is until now.

Life&Style magazine is reporting that Ramona Singer is taking Kelly Bensimon’s place this season as the resident crazy pants of the show, while also acting violent.

“During filming, Ramona [Singer] slapped one of the producers from Shed Media, the company that produces the reality show,” an insider tells Life & Style. “It got very out of hand. What a way to start off the season, huh!”

It doesn’t end there as a second source tells the mag “Ramona has been acting out physically and emotionally… Her acting out wasn’t a story line for the show. It’s crazy; everyone involved in the show has been talking about it. What seems to be going on with her lately is unclear, but she’s been very erratic.”

Life&Style magazine is a very credible source when it comes to Housewives news, making this story all the more interesting.  Let’s all hope Kelly and Jill aren’t the two sources for this story.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY?


Real Housewives of New York City star and renowned author of the non bestseller ‘Secrets of a Jewish Mother,’ Jill Zarin, is dishing out some unsolicited advice.

In a new interview with the HollywoodLife blog, Jill, mom to 17-year-old Allyson Shapiro, is pretty fired up as she believes troubled actress Lindsay Lohan should not have been jailed again.

“You don’t NOT give bail to a drug addict. Lindsay didn’t hurt anyone else — she didn’t rob a bank or break into someone’s house — she didn’t hurt anyone but herself,” Jill pointed out. Perhaps someone might want to inform Jill that Lindsay is on probation following her second DUI conviction back in August 2007.

“I feel bad for Lindsay — she’s a drug addict, I’ve known drug addicts and all they can think about is their drugs,” continued Jill.

The non addiction expert feels that Lindsay, who is currently on her 5th rehab stint, needs more rehab and not jail. “Lindsay needs a solid year in rehab to finally overcome her addiction. You need 12 months to break ties with your former friends and associates,” she said. “The best thing to happen to Lindsay is if a movie studio would tell her to go away for a year, get sober and promise her a terrific role, when she came back.”

TELL US – DO YOU AGREE WITH JILL? SHOULD JILL BE GIVING OUT UNSOLICITED ADVICE?

Just days after Ramona Singer confirmed the addition of a new housewife to the Real Housewives of NYC cast, UsWeekly is now revealing her identity!

The “lucky” one is Cindy Barshop. Cindy is the owner of Completely Bare, a successful chain of day spas specializing in hair removal. The spa has three locations in Manhattan, Palm Beach, Fla. and Scarsdale, New York.

UsWeekly reveals Cindy is a single mom to two twin girls born in 2009, while a source tells the mag “she’s funny and very nice!”

In a recent interview with UsWeekly, Ramona, who didn’t reveal Cindy’s identity, had the following to say about her: “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself. Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something — that’s just who I am sometimes!”

As we reported last week, Ramona confirmed all of the NYC housewives from last season will be returning to the show. More pictures of Cindy below.

Following the report weeks ago that Bravo had invited back all of the Real Housewives of New York City from season 3, Ramona Singer is now revealing which of her co-stars have accepted Bravo’s offer to return to the show!

Despite Kelly Bensimon and Jill Zarin’s proclamations on several occasions that they received unfair editing by Bravo, and that they were contemplating not coming back, Ramona tells PEOPLE magazine that both famewhores ladies will indeed be returning for season 4.

In fact, Ramona, 53, (Ramona’s 53? She looks great for her age) reveals all the ladies including Bethenny Frankel, Sonja Morgan, Alex McCord, Countess LuAnn, will be coming back. However, as we have previously reported, Bethenny will only make guest appearances on the season. “Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment,” said Ramona.

Also joining all the ladies pictured above will be a new housewife. Ramona confirms the news to UsWeekly that a new NYC housewife will be joining the cast when filming begins next week. “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself,” Ramona tells Usmagazine. “Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something — that’s just who I am sometimes! I can’t help it. But it’s better I tell it to your face then behind your back, right?”

Ramona also discusses Bethenny’s return to the show in her UsWeekly interview telling the site Bethenny will make “cameo appearances, just like I did on her show.” In true Ramona fashion, she seems to take a shot, perhaps an unintentional shot at Teresa Giudice when she adds, “We are intertwined in a sense. She proved to Bravo you don’t have to have table-flipping to get ratings.”

In other NYC news, The HollywoodReporter is reporting that Bethenny has began filming the second season of her hit spin-off show, Bethenny Getting Married, this week. This comes as no surprise as the show was a hit for Bravo, giving the network it’s highest rated series debut in its history. A source tells the site Bravo will likely change the name of the show.

Despite her declaration on the cover of UsWeekly magazine weeks ago, stating she had quit the Real Housewives of New York City, it seems Bethenny Frankel might have to return full time next season, and not just to make sparse guest appearances as previously reported.

According to Popeater, Bethenny is still under contract with Bravo to appear on one more season of the show.  This means the decision to appear or not appear on the show is completely up to Bravo, and not Bethenny.

“Bethenny’s contract with ‘Housewives’ is for another year,” a Bravo network executive tells Popeater. “Even though she has a contract for her own spin-off reality show, she needs to honor the contact she originally signed.”

And when it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub getting a spin-off show on another network, not so fast says Popeater.  Apparently Danielle’s contract with Bravo clearly states she cannot work for another network for several more years without Bravo’s written permission.

“These ladies think they are superstars now and that something like a contract doesn’t matter,” an insider reveals. “Well, think again. Bravo isn’t in the business of creating stars and then letting them go to other networks. That just isn’t going to happen.”

In other housewives news, Danielle is now claiming former co-star Dina Manzo is sending her threatening text messages.  “Dina texts me,” said Danielle to E! News. “Yep, Dina—who’s not even on the Housewives anymore. She’s hanging for dear life. Shut the f–k up, Dina!”

“She’s threatening me,” Danielle claims. “She’s an idiot. I don’t answer them.”  Dina however denies this.  “I left for a reason to get her out of my life,” said Dina. “I wish she would just do the same and move on.”

In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, Bethenny Frankel, former star of Real Housewives of New York City, discusses her former castmates.

This is the same issue in which Bethenny announced she was quitting the show. When asked about her current status with former BFF Jill Zarin, Bethenny had some interesting things to say. “I was sympathetic at the reunion, but Jason said, ‘It’s all for the cameras,’” she says before adding, “I never heard from her after that.”

When it comes to Kelly Bensimon, Bethenny says her interaction with Kelly was toxic. “She said mean things. She called me a ho bag. I don’t want Bryn to hear stuff like that.” And when it comes to Kelly coming back on the show next season, Bethenny had some nicer words for the unpredictable housewife. “I hope coming back is a healthy choice for her,” said Bethenny. “It’s stressful.”

It seems Bethenny’s husband, Jason Hoppy, also played a role in her decision to leave the Housewives. “My husband was embarrassed by it,” she said. “Jason’s a different person when he’s on camera for Housewives than he is for Bethenny’s Getting Married? He just didn’t want to do it anymore.”

 

In other NYC Housewives news, in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kelly Bensimon solely discusses her hair, telling the mag that everyone is obsessed with it.

“Everyone is obsessed with my hair,” Kelly told PEOPLE. “They always want to touch it.” Kelly credits her hair colorist, Bradley Irion, for giving her the amazing must-be-touched hair.

“When I met Bradley, he said, your hair has to be natural. So he literally colored my base and let my natural hair color come through. People are constantly coming up to me and touching my hair. That’s what Bradley gave me. . . this touchable, gorgeous hair that’s real,” she said adding that Bradney “even cuts my dog’s hair.”

While the article itself was unintentionally humorous, the only two comments left on the article page are likely much more funny. “I think it always, always looks dirty and stringy,” posted Anniieee. “Her hair makes her face so long. It’s also so dated. She looks like she belongs in the 80′s. Is this all this woman cares about?” posted boston02127.

UPDATE – This gets even better.  Here’s what Rob Shuter from Popeater posted on twitter:  “Off to bed! But laughing so loud that @kikilet told people everyone was obsesssed with her hair! Her PR people pitched that story! We passed.”
