Real Housewives of New York

While the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New York City doesn’t premiere until February, one thing is apparent – which is that costars Ramona Singer and Luann de Lesseps are definitely not BFFs.

This became extremely obvious yesterday when Ramona, who also has a teenage daughter, re-tweeted a youtube video of Countess Luann’s 16-year-old daughter Victoria de Lesseps rolling up a joint and using the N-word.

Ramona deleted the tweet moments later, perhaps due to some of the backlash she received from fans on twitter or maybe someone advised her to. That reason is unclear but the damage was already done as news of the video quickly spread.

Though the youtube video has been taken down as of this morning, I personally viewed the entire 5 minute clip yesterday evening and Victoria appeared to be very high as she giggled and laughed her way through the 5 minute skype conversation with a female friend.

The shocking part of the video came in at about 4 minute mark when Victoria began to roll up what appeared to be a joint. Things then took a turn for the worst when Victoria uttered the N-word close to the 5-minute mark. In Victoria’s defense, she didn’t appear to be using the word as a racial slur. Though still ignorant, she seemed to be using it as a means to refer to her friend aka buddy, pal etc.

Victoria was also aware that her skype conversation was being recorded as she seemed excited at the thought of viewing the video in school the next day, implying she couldn’t wait to see her actions with a sober clear mind. No word on how the video made it’s way to youtube.

The NyMag.com also published a story about this and they were able to get a screen shot of Ramona’s re-tweet before she deleted it. That is below.

It seems Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon barely escaped an accident last night while driving through a blizzard.

As you all may know by now, the Northeast region is experiencing a pretty harsh blizzard with many government officials warning citizens to stay off the roads. It seems Kelly did not receive these warnings as she tweeted the following Monday morning – “During the blizzard, we spun out in my Mercedes on the LIE. I was petrified. It was like skating not driving. I need a #safe car.”

While “safe cars” are nice to have, we also believe a functioning brain and the ability to know to stay home during dangerous blizzards would also suffice. Kelly then added that the blizzard started during her drive home. “Most dangerous times to drive are when it starts to snow/ rain. We were driving home as the blizzard started.did a 360. so scarey.” Right.

Moving right along to Kelly’s former costar Bethenny Frankel. Apparently Bethenny lost some weight during her stint on the Skating With The Stars disaster as she is now looking to pack on some pounds.

“Eating enchiladas at “on the border”mex grill at 10am.need to gain weight.I look like magda from “something about mary,” tweeted Bethenny. Looks like Bethenny will have to go against her famous trademark – “Taste everything, eat nothing” for the time being.

It also seems Bethenny will continue to expand her ever growing empire. “I’m developing a healthy cleanse&purification daily system for you.JAN!” tweeted Bethenny when a fan asked about her thoughts on a good 3 day cleanse.

In case you’re not aware by now, Bethenny Frankel is no longer a housewife on the Real Housewives of New York City.

Though Bravo wanted Bethenny, the clear fan favorite, to return for the show’s fourth season (currently being filmed), Bethenny decided she no longer wanted to do the show, instead opting to make guest appearances here and there a la Lisa Wu Hartwell on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

According to a new report by Popeater, Bravo is now worried about what effect Bethenny’s absence will have on the show’s new season. “Bethenny is the biggest star the franchise has ever produced,” a Bravo insider reveals. “She not only connected with the most fans, but she also allowed the audience to laugh at how ridiculous the other ladies are. Without Bethenny making fun of the cast, the show just won’t be as much fun.”

Popeater adds that a main concern for Bravo is who will now call out Kelly Bensimon on her erratic/crazy/entertaining behavior. “Without Bethenny on the show, Kelly’s strange behavior is no longer funny, it’s just annoying,” adds the source.

Apparently Bravo became increasingly concerned after catching a glimpse of how the new season is going. Based on what they saw, they decided to ask Bethenny to return for more than the six appearances she is contractually obligated to make.

Bethenny, who is now gearing up for the second season of her Bravo spin off show, however doesn’t want to return for more appearances as she is ready to phase the NYC Housewives completely out of her life. Bethenny reportedly feels “physically sick” just thinking about having to return to the show, something she feels is a “toxic environment.”

A friend of Bethenny tells Popeater, “In her heart she wishes she could just move on.” The friend adds, “To tell the truth, she doesn’t even want to watch the new season let alone be forced to be part of it.” Ouch.

In what can only be described as a major burn, a rep for Alex Rodriguez is now publicly denying any claims/reports of a romance or flirting between Alex and Kelly Bensimon.

This all stems from a report that magically found its way in the NYPost on Tuesday. The report not only claimed Alex was heavily flirting with the Real Housewives of New York City star, it also alleged they went on a date the next day.

“The whole story about Kelly and A-Rod is absolute, unadulterated hogwash,” his rep tells UsWeekly. “There were 1,500 people at that party at Wall, and Kelly was one of many that were clamoring to meet him,” a source added.

Ouch, but the burns did not end there. Another insider close to the pro baseball player added that Kelly “is not exactly his material,” calling their meeting “an accidental collision at a party.”

Seems like A-Rod’s on-again, off-again girlfriend Cameron Diaz has nothing to worry about.

In other Kelly news, she also makes an appearance in the latest issue of In Touch magazine during which she tells the mag she wants some feminine curves. “I don’t want to be a stick figure,” she said. “I want to look like a woman.” Judging from her latest bikini photos, she has a long way to go. A scan of the In Touch story is below.

And just for old times sake, below are some tweets made by Kelly within the last 48 hours -

“gotta run, and do my head stand. its gonna be a crazy day, i need to be prepared.”

#ifIHadSuperPowers i’d erase the ability to be mean.”

The last tweet was likely made in reference to the UsWeekly story as it was posted after the story was published.

It seems reality star Bethenny Frankel is starting to second guess her decision to do her 4th reality show/disasterSkating With The Stars.

Now in it’s third week, SWTS can best be described as nothing short of a catastrophe. In addition to its bad host, bad judges, multiple injuries, and unknown stars, the show is also experiencing disastrous ratings that only continue to decline.

Just how bad are the ratings? Only 6 million viewers tuned in last week in comparison to the 19 millions viewers that routinely watched Dancing With The Stars. The ratings took an even bigger hit last night as only 5 million viewers tuned in.

“It really is,” Bethenny told reporters last week when asked if doing the show has proven difficult. “It’s like the Mafia, and I can’t get out because I’m committed and I love [my partner Ethan Burgess] and I have to do this now for him. But there are days that I’m like, ‘Why the heck did I do this’? But ultimately it is really fun.”

When it comes to the harsh criticism she has received from the judges, Bethenny joked, “I thought I was a badass. I thought I was phenomenal. I had the best time. I am the woman Johnny Weir wants to be and he clearly has an issue with that.”

And just last week, a fan asked Bethenny on Twitter if she wanted to get voted off. This was her reply – “I Love my partner&we pee laughing so I want to stay for that.plus grt for his career.”

Moving right along. The NYPost is also reporting today that Real Housewives of NYC nut star Kelly Bensimon was seen flirting with pro baseball player Alex Rodriguez in Miami.

According to the Post, a witness states Alex “had his arm ’round Kelly and they were flirting.” The two were then seen browsing art at the Convention Center the next day. Surely this story wasn’t leaked to the press by Kelly’s people.

And in a strange twist, the NYDailyNews reported back in April 2009 that A-Rod and Bethenny were hooking up, something Bethenny denied back then.

It seems the Royal Highness herself aka Countess Luann de Lesseps is now offering unsolicited advice to soon to be royal Kate Middleton.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Countess Lulu who was married to Count Alexandre de Lessep for 16 years and has reportedly rubbed elbows with the King of Greece, shares that Kate and Prince William’s engagement news is “almost as exciting as the day I got married!”

The Real Housewives of New York City star added, “I think it must be very exciting for her…I was the same age so I think she’s coming to the table a little more experienced. She’s not a wallflower, she has a great personality and she enjoys a good joke! And I think she’s somebody who’s comfortable with who she is.”

Luann then had the following advice for Kate. “I think she (Kate) should stay true to herself and be her own person and have good mentors. I’m sure the queen would be delighted to help her,” the Countess said with a laugh. “Charm is key and being warm and endearing is really looked upon as a very positive trait.”

In other NYC news, Kelly Bensimon has decided to take a break from vacation mental meltdowns and foot in mouth press interviews to once again pose for paparazzi while wearing an itsy bikini.

We’ve have lost count of Kelly’s staged bikini paparazzi photo shoots but the latest one is below. The 42-year-old mother of two was photographed on a beach in Miami. She is reportedly there to promote her new jewelry line.
