Real Housewives of New York

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel is dunzo!

The Real Housewives of New York City star has officially quit the show that made her a star, reports the new issue of UsWeekly.

“Last season was scary and painful,” she tells the magazine about the reason she rejected Bravo’s offers to return for season 4, which is scheduled to begin filming on Sept. 20. “It took all of the joy out of it.”

This decision by Bethenny doesn’t exactly come as a shocker as she has another hit show on Bravo, Bethenny Getting Married, a show that doesn’t require her to try to decode the incoherent ramblings of NYC co-star Kelly Bensimon.

Bethenny, who welcomed daughter Bryn Hoppy in May with husband Jason Hoppy tells UsWeekly she doesn’t “see any reason to go back.”

Despite Bethenny quitting the show, viewers can still expect to see her when the 4th season of the NYC Housewives returns. Why? Well a Bravo insider tells UsWeekly that Bethenny is still contractually bound to make a few appearances on RHONY next season, though Bravo is still hoping that she’ll return full-time.

Could money have played a part in Bethenny’s decision? Hollyscoop reported just last week that Bethenny was in negotiations to return to the show. Either way, I can’t say I blame Bethenny. I’m not certain Bravo could pay me enough money to go on vacation with the nutty Kelly and mean girl Jill. I think this will definitely impact the show though. Bethenny not appearing on RHONY would be equivalent to Nene Leakes leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

TELL US – WILL YOU STILL WATCH RHONY WITHOUT BETHENNY? DID BETHENNY MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION?

While Bravo has reportedly invited all of the Real Housewives of New York City, excluding Jennifer Gilbert, back for a 4th season, it seems the housewives are a bit reluctant to sign the dotted line.

The NYPost is reporting that ladies are banding together, refusing to sign a new contract with the network unless they get more money. Jersey Shore money to be exact.

See, the Post states the ladies are earning a mere $4,000 per episode for their show, while MTV reality star Snooki earns $30,000 per episode on the Jersey Shore hit show.

They’ve got a lot more to say,” Jill Zarin a source close to the Housewives tells the Post, adding that the ladies “have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings.”

“It’s a full-time job without the full-time pay,” a second source says. “That’s why a reality star with any sense does a book line or jewelry line to support being on the show.”

Well let’s examine things to see if the NYC ladies really deserve more money. The show averaged 2 million viewers per episode last season, while the Jersey Shore’s current season is averaging 5 million viewers. So simple calculation shows that solely based on the ratings, the ladies should be earning at least $12,000 per episode. Oddly enough, the Jersey Shore cast and the Real Housewives of NYC cast have about the same number of cast members.

Also, it is likely that Bethenny Frankel is not involved in this negotiation process with the other housewives. With the success of her spin off show, there’s a good chance her negotiations is being done solo and she will likely earn more money than her co-stars if and when she returns to the show. For example, TMZ reported Jersey Shore’s The Situation is earning $60,00o per episode on the show, way more than all of his other co-stars.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THE LADIES DESERVE MORE MONEY FROM BRAVO?

After months of saying she was open to having baby #2, it seems Bethenny Frankel has had a change of heart.

The Bethenny Getting Married star, who is reportedly in negotiations to return to the Real Housewives of NYC, tells Parade.com in a new interview that she does not want another baby. “Jason wants to have another baby, and I don’t. So that’s another problem,” said Bethenny when asked if she was already trying for a new baby.

Bethenny however makes it clear just how much she adores her baby girl Bryn Hoppy, who is now a healthier 9 1/2 pounds at three and a half months old.

“Bryn’s a big pink baby now,” said Bethenny to Parade while hosting a press conference for drugstore.com. “Bryn likes pink — it’s her new favorite color. She is really growing up, and it is making me upset.”

And when it comes to her favorite pastime with baby Bryn, Bethenny shares, “We sing for an hour every day. I sing to her, and Bryn sings back. We sing Rihanna, Pink, gangsta rap.”

In other Bethenny news, the NYDailyNews is reporting today that during the Drugstore event, Bethenny took a swipe at her fellow Bravo housewife Danielle Staub.

Danielle, who has been fired from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, has told the press she is working on a solo reality show. It seems however that Bethenny, the only Bravo housewife to get her own solo spin off show on the network, is not willing to share that title, well at least not with Danielle.

“I’ll bet everything I hope to be that she will not have a spinoff on Bravo,” is what Bethenny is quoted as saying. Ouch.

Just a day after a report stating that Bethenny Frankel wasn’t asked to return to the Real Housewives of New York City by Bravo came out, a new report states Bethenny is indeed in talks to return for the 4th season of the show.

The Hollyscoop blog reports today that sources close to Bethenny say “she’s been asked to return for the new season and negotiations are ongoing.”

The site also confirms that all of Bethenny’s co-stars including the crazy controversial Kelly Bensimon have been asked back. Bethenny is currently filming a second season of her hit show – Bethenny Getting Married.

In other news, the always entertaining Kelly Bensimon continues to do interviews. Why exactly? We’re not sure, but the interviews continue to be entertaining.

In her latest incoherent rambling interview with Fancast, Kelly defends her fellow crazy NJ Housewife Danielle Staub and rambles about some other things. The best part of the interview might be Kelly claiming her imaginary friends tell her she’s the sanest one on the show.

Excerpts from Kelly’s interview below -

Do you care how other people perceive you?
No. Why should I?

So if someone calls you crazy, do you just dismiss it?
Yes. It doesn’t faze me in the least. After [the Virgin Islands episode], people were like, ‘Wow. That was really hard to watch.’ And I said, ‘Why? That’s television. What’s so hard about watching that? Because I was crying and saying leave me alone and stop berating me and attacking me?’ In normal situations, you would excuse yourself from the drama. But in normal circumstances, I wouldn’t have even been there in the first place. I would never choose to put myself in that kind of environment. I would never go on vacation with people that I wasn’t friends with or didn’t trust.

What did your close friends say when they saw that episode?
They said ‘good for you.’ And they’re glad I stuck up for myself and let the other girls know it’s inappropriate behavior. My friends were laughing all over the place. They know its white noise. It’s non-coherent subject matter. It doesn’t make sense at all. Everyone’s like, ‘Kelly, you’re the only sane person on the show.’ My friends think I’m doing a great job.

What do you think of Danielle?
If Danielle gets her own spinoff, I think that’d be amazing for her. She makes for great TV. She’s out of the box and has no inhibitions. It’s not my place to say whether someone has issues or not. I will say she has a lot of fun with what she’s doing. I don’t know what her real life is like, but I honestly don’t think that she’s well matched against the rest of that cast for that show. Still, she definitely is fun to watch. I love seeing her. She has no limitations and that’s great.

Also wanted to add that there will be no photo post today. Thinking the photo posts should be kept to once a week on Saturdays, but would like to get your input. Please take the poll below when you can. Thanks!

More crazy coming your way on the next season of the Real Housewives of New York City.

The NYDailyNews is reporting today that Bravo has asked back all of the ladies of last season with the exception of one. Who wasn’t asked back? Bethenny Frankel, who has been very vocal about not wanting to return to the show.

It seems Bravo is pleased and content with the success of Bethenny’s spin off show – Bethenny Getting Married, as she is currently filming a second season.

Now on to the shocker, which is the return of Kelly Bensimon, who famously had a mental breakdown last season, and has bashed the network for false editing and forcing her to go on the St. John trip. Even Bravo’s VP of programming, Andy Cohen, recently referred to Kelly’s breakdown as “deeply disturbing” in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. But oh well, who cares! Evidently, crazy sells!

So if all the ladies accept Bravo’s offer, the 4th season of the NYC Housewives will include a cast of Kelly, Jill Zarin, Alex McCord, LuAnn de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, and new housewife Sonja Morgan.

Both Jill and Kelly have mentioned uncertainty about returning for another season, but something tells us the two famewhores ladies will be back.

There’s no word on whether Jennifer Gilbert will be returning. The Daily News also mentions Bravo is interested in casting a certain nameless “wealthy Hamptons housewife.”

Bravo housewives in Bikinis

Bethenny Frankel is showing off her post baby bikini body in the latest issue of Life&Style magazine.

The Real Housewives of NYC star was photographed on the beach rocking her blue bikini just 3 months after delivering daughter Bryn Hoppy. The magazine claims Bethenny’s photos were not retouched.

The 5’6 star is back to her pre-pregnancy weight of 118 pounds and shares her diet tips with the mag. “There’s been no real drastic anything,” Bethenny, 39, says. “I’ve really been eating, just not like a crazy person. Taste everything, eat nothing.”

Bethenny states she’s in a healthy place now and no longer does extreme diets. “I was owned by dieting and I hated myself,” she says. “I’ll never be extreme again, it just doesn’t work.”

In other Bravo housewives bikini news, Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi is also showing off her bikini body. Why exactly? Well the 44-year-old reality star/alleged White House party crasher wants to prove to the world that she’s not anorexic!

“I’m not anorexic!” insists Michaele in the latest issue of InTouch Weekly. “I’m a skinny girl. I always was. I’ve never had an eating disorder in my life. And it hurts to be called anorexic.”

Michaele, who along with her husband Tareq, has been accused by numerous individuals and companies of owing them money also shares with the mag that she would like to get a boob job within the next 6 months. Excerpts from Michaele’s interview below -

How do you defend yourself?
Honestly, I can’t believe those women have so much time to devote to my weight. If they get out there and move, they will look like me and be thin, and it’ll all be good.

What’s your diet like?
I start the day with a hot chocolate and cereal — I love Lucky Charms or Kashi GoLean — then some fruit. I don’t really eat a lot in the middle of the day. I have an early dinner, which is always a salad, with plain chicken, grilled or broiled.

What about plastic surgery — would you ever do it?
Definitely. I would love to do a whole lot of Botox and maybe get collagen, too. I also think it would be great to have boobs. I’m a B [cup], so I’d get a C. I’m all for anything you can do to make yourself look and feel better.

When would you do it?
Hopefully, within the next six months. But my husband doesn’t want me to do my boobs!

Bethenny FrankelHollywood Hills 90028

It seems before becoming a popular and successful reality star, Bethenny Frankel tried her hand at becoming famous way back in the 90s. Celebslam has uncovered Bethenny’s brief stint in acting, as she was the lead actress in a low budget 1994 movie, titled Hollywood Hills 90028.

Hollywood Hills 90028 stars Bethenny Frankel as Laura, who moves to Hollywood Hills, CA, as the movie begins. She has no personal ties to anyone, but soon becomes obsessed with the nerdy Mike (David Kenneth). Mike is so thankful to have the interest of such an alluring woman that he never notices how intense her passion is — even when bad things start happening to people Mike knows.

Bethenny’s IMDB page also shows she starred in another low budget movie titled ‘Wish Me Luck‘ in 1995. The shocking part however is that the Bethenny Getting Married star went topless in the movie role. Censored pictures of a topless Bethenny in the movie are below.

In other news, Bethenny is making headlines after slamming supermodel Gisele Bundchen for the comments she made about breast feeding.

It all started a few weeks ago when the supermodel mom, 30, opined to Harper’s Bazaar UK mag that “there should be a worldwide law…that mothers should breast-feed their babies for six months.” Gisele received a lot of negative feedback from mothers and she eventually backed down, blogging on August 2, “Everyone has their own experience…I’m not here to judge.”

“It’s the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard,” retorts Bethenny of Gisele in the new Us Weekly. Adding that “breastfeeding is one of the most rewarding experiences, but it isn’t for everyone.”


Jill Zarin is baaaack! After an unfavorable season on the Real Housewives of NYC , the reality star has been slowly but surely making her way back in the limelight.

When Jill is not busy inviting camera crews to go shopping with she and her daughter Allyson, she’s busy giving out interviews in an attempt to promote um ummm, oh who cares! She has herself to promote!

In her latest interview with RadarOnline, Jill shares that she has yet to meet cast-mate Bethenny Frankel’s baby. “I’m not involved with her life anymore. I haven’t met the baby.” Jill also states she has yet to reconcile with Bethenny saying she called her after the reunion show taping. “I called and she didn’t call back. I do have a baby gift waiting for her when I do see her.”

And when it comes to her actions on the Bravo hit show, Jill is still distressed that people got to see her true colors. “Why did [the storyline with Bethenny] last nine episodes or whatever? It was only two or three weeks in real time when I was mad at Bethenny and then I wanted to make up and that was sort of extended for six months or something.”

When asked if she will be back for another season, Jill pretends says she has a lot of mixed feelings. “On the one hand I think it’s a great platform for my brand but also for my charities. But on the other hand, it really put my family through the ringer. Put me through the ringer.”

Danielle StaubKelly Bensimon NYC

In an unintentionally hilarious story by OK magazine, the two crazies of Bravo two most infamous Bravo housewives dish out advice to the new housewives on the block – the Real Housewives of DC.

According to OK, Danielle Staub and Kelly Bensimon offer their tips and takes on being part of the Bravo pop culture phenomenon.

First up is Danielle of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. “Don’t hate on each other so much,” advises Danielle. “It gets ugly, and it doesn’t make anybody look bad but yourself. And if you’re going to attack one person, believe me, you’re going to make them rise to the top. [points to herself] Hello.”

Keeping bankrupt cast-mate Teresa Giudice in mind, Danielle doesn’t miss a chance to to take a shot at her rival, advising the DC ladies to live within their means. “If you have it, don’t flaunt it, because it will come back to bite you,” she says. “Be humble. Be grateful for the opportunities you have. Try to teach your children that hard work is definitely something that will become lucrative to you in the end, and you do have to always remember where you came from.”

Next up is Kelly of the Real Housewives of NYC who begins by stating she won’t tune into the D.C. show, because it’s “not my game.”

Kelly however believes being on the Bravo hit show is a good thing regardless of the many downsides, you know such as the world questioning your mental health. “So what if someone calls you a name?” Kelly says. “Haters are part of the ecosystem. Have fun with it. I’m having so much fun with it, and I’m able to be charitable on top of it. And my kids love it. It’s a win-win. I don’t see anything wrong with it.”

She continues her crazy rambling, “Now I get to put my money where my mouth is, and actually go out there and be in the trenches and be part of what’s going on and be charitable, which is important. A lot of people are skinny cats and they’re like ‘yah, I’m so cool for school, I can’t go to a party because somebody’s going to recognize me.’ I’m like ‘how about taking the hat off, smiling, putting your name out there, giving the stamp of approval on whatever charity it is, and helping them so we can make people better.”

And folks, you simply can’t make these things up.
