Is Tamra Barney a grandma? There are rumors floating around that the self professed “hottest housewife” on the block might have become a grandmother. Allegedly Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth posted some information on his facebook about his one month old daughter named Dakota Vieth. Perhaps someone with access to Ryan’s page can confirm this for us.

Gretchen Rossi also recently took to her facebook fanpage to post a photo of her shooting a commercial for TurboTax, not sure what the correlation is between Gretchen & taxes but a behind the scenes photo is below.

Bethenny Frankel, star of the Real Housewives of NYC appeared on the Today Show this morning, and touched on a lot of topics. The video is below.

Bethenny discussed the rather controversial nude picture she took for PETA. She had been criticized for saying little to no airbrushing was done, when the actual before and after photo showed a lot of airbrushing. “There was a rogue boob they took out,” Bethenny told TODAY’s Matt Lauer of the photo, which was taken when she was pregnant. “It’s a little airbrushed, but the truth is, here it is. I don’t care.”

She continued, “It wasn’t like I was posing for a fitness video or I was trying to be a model. It was about not wearing fur, which I’m really passionate about.”

When asked about her pregnancy and wedding plans to fiance, Jason Hoppy, Bethenny told Lauer she’s too busy thinking about her baby to plan a wedding. She is due in June 2010 by the way. Bethenny also said that people might have to change how they view her once she becomes a mom. “I think people think I’m a little abrasive,” she said. “It’s going to be hard for people to imagine me being soft and cuddly with a little, cute pink baby.”

Bethenny who just wrapped up filming the 3rd season of the Real NYC Housewives has been given her own reality show on Bravo. The show is currently in production, but according to Bethenny, she might still return for a 4th season of the NYC Housewives. “Who knows if I’ll be on ‘Housewives’?” she told Lauer. “This season is so incredible, it’s nice to leave the part at full-tilt.”

Merry Christmas Readers! & A Special Happy Holidays To You All! Hope you enjoy the story below!

Real Housewife of New York City star, Bethenny Frankel’s PETA ad campaign seems to be causing a lot of controversy among other housewives. Bethenny’s naked pose (“I’d rather go nude than wear fur!”) is on a Times Square billboard for all to see, according to NYpost.

After Bethenny blasted housewife costar Jill Zarin for wearing fur, Jill responded by tweeting, “I wouldn’t throw stones at glass houses, my love.” Sources believe Jill could be referring to Bethenny’s new cookbook that’s full of chicken recipes. A source wondered, “How can someone who encourages people to buy and eat chicken be a pioneer against animal cruelty?”

However, PETA’s Michael McGraw came to Bethenny’s rescue and has said: “Bethenny is not a vegan and never claimed to be. She has, however, brought much-needed attention to PETA’s anti-fur campaign.” Another housewife that has beef with Bethenny is Real Housewife of New Jersey, Teresa Guidice. After Bethenny’s informed us she was pregnant when the ad was shot and claims there was little airbrushing, Teresa responded by saying, “Someone tell Bethenny that sperm does not make you look fat. I’m not buying the airbrushing thing in any case.”

In other housewife news, Kelly Bensimon is also getting in on the fur discussion. She asked on Twitter why she shouldn’t wear fur and she wants the cold, hard facts. “Fur really gets u guys fired up. Let’s talk facts, not emotion. Tell me factually why peeps shouldn’t wear fur. I want to know, facts only.”

The third season of The Real Housewives of NYC has yet to air, but judging from the recent events that have taken place in past months, it’s safe to say this will be a drama filled season.

“The minute I can, I will call you and give you all the dirt,” says housewife Kelly Killoren Bensimon in a recent interview. “I promise I will give you everything. I’m going to be much more talkative in the press this season than I was last season.”

When asked if she had gotten her fellow housewife Bethenny Frankel — who is four months pregnant — a baby gift, Kelly said “Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, they’re friends.’ ” Kelly explains, “No, we’re just on a TV show together. So it’s not appropriate for me to give her a gift.” (Kelly also says she doesn’t like giving baby gifts until the baby is born.)

So much for the alleged truce that had been called between the two, as they constantly feuded during the last season.  Kelly is also working on repairing her tarnished reputation which she feels has been unfairly trashed on- and off-camera.  She however insists that has nothing to do with her recent charity work, as she and Jill Zarin helped serve meals at the Food Bank’s soup kitchen in NYC.

Not exactly sure what Bethenny Frankel is trying to prove, but the Real Housewives of NYC star has decided to share her untouched PETA nude picture with the public.

According to UsWeekly, Bethenny is sharing the untouched version of her picture in an attempt to prove she was not heavily airbrushed, as claimed by others including fellow housewife, Teresa Giudice, who recently slammed her. “Everything I’m about is being honest and being upfront,” Bethenny, 39, tells UsMagazine. “So if people are talking and saying [the photo] was airbrushed…then, you know what? Here’s the picture. Have it your way.”

Bethenny who is now four months pregnant with her first child adds that she would “never, ever allow them to put up a billboard that was really far from the truth.”

When asked about her pregnancy, Bethenny says — “It’s been great. I haven’t been particularly nauseous, and I get a decent night’s sleep, which is refreshing. My boobs are big, but other than that, nothing’s crazy.” She also reveals she and fiance, Jason Hoppy, are putting off their wedding until after she gets through her pregnancy and upcoming book tour.

Perhaps it’s just me, but umm doesn’t the untouched version of the pic prove that it was indeed heavily airbrushed?

Real Housewives of New York star, Bethenny Frankel is four months pregnant and isn’t showing any signs of slowing down anytime soon. In addition to shooting The Real Housewives of New York City series, she just completed the filming of her first exercise DVD. As if that wasn’t enough, she is also planning a book tour to promote her new book, The Skinnygirl Dish. In a recent interview with Life & Style, Bethenny reveals her pregnancy bump and talks of the excitement of being an expecting mom.

Below are excerpts from Bethenny’s interview:

L&S: Congratulations! Are you super excited?
Bethenny: I’m really excited. I’m starting to show a little bit. I don’t fit in my pants — it’s very liberating. Now I believe that I’m pregnant.

L&S: Have you gained a lot of weight?
Bethenny: Five or 6 pounds, but they’re right in my stomach. A lot of people think being pregnant is one giant binge, but you should check yourself before you wreck yourself. I’m not changing the way I eat. If I eat chocolate cake at lunch, I try not to have it after dinner. By no means is it dieting, but I’m trying to maintain some sort of balance because I’ll have to deal with it later. I’m actually thinking of writing a pregnancy book. There’s no reason to gain 75 pounds.

L&S: Do you feel like this is a miracle baby?
Bethenny: Absolutely a miracle. I’m not young, and I run around like a maniac. I always wanted to have kids, but I thought I’d wind up adopting or freezing my eggs. I didn’t think it would just happen at my age. Did I plan the pregnancy? No. Did I want it? Yes. I felt like there was something huge missing in my life that I hadn’t experienced yet.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is making it obvious that she is not a fan of Bethenny Frankel, as Teresa is publicly slamming Bethenny’s nude PETA ad.

The two housewives’ beef started back in September when Bethenny told TV Guide that Teresa is her “least favorite housewife” because she is “whiny and unintelligent.”

Teresa twittered to her fans yesterday, “It’s cool if you like Bethenny. She probably didn’t give an interview to TV Guide that hated on you. Me, not so lucky.”

“To quote Bethenny: ‘I just threw up a little in my mouth,’” Teresa, 36, continued via Twitter Tuesday.

You can see Bethenny’s nude PETA photo here!

According to the New York Post, Bethenny boasted that she was already pregnant when the shots were taken and she was pleased with the outcome “because it doesn’t look like there’s been any airbrushing.”

Teresa on the other hand doesn’t agree. “Help me understand this,” she twittered. “Bethenny is happy with her naked pic because she was ‘already pregnant’ at the time. She says she’s now three months along, but she did the shot in August. Even if she’s four months pregnant now, she would’ve been, like, one hour pregnant in the pic.”

Teresa is actually a bit incorrect as Bethenny took the picture back in September, but point taken nonetheless. She continues, “Someone tell Bethenny that sperm does not make you look fat, and I’m not buying the airbrushing thing in any case.”

Teresa recently twitted Wednesday morning – “I love the curves my babies gave me! delicious! it makes me nervous when ppl obsess about weight when they are pregnant, esp only 1 hour pg!”

Ouch, something tells me we haven’t heard the last of this war of words between Teresa and Bethenny.
