NY Housewives' Bethenny FrankelTop Chef Fabio Viviani

Bravo is currently developing new shows for three of their network stars, reports Variety.com.

Those networks stars include Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City, Fabio Viviani — a season five finalist of Top Chef, and Christian Siriano – winner of season four’s Project Runway.

Bethenny’s show has been rumored for some time now, and this is the first official confirmation that the show is indeed coming soon. According to Bravo VP/general manager Frances Berwick, the shows will be docuseries that focus on the lives and careers of all three reality show vets.

The untitled show starring Bethenny will showcase her career as a natural foods chef, as well as her love life.

Fabio will star in “Fabio: A Catered Affair,” which will chronicle the challenges he faces as he and business partner Jacopo Falleni look to expand their restaurant and catering business in Los Angeles. Christian’s show will focus on him setting up his new clothing line.

In not so shocking news, Bethenny Frankel is reportedly feuding with her Real Housewives of NYC costars according to the NYDailyNews.

The shocker however is that the only housewife Bethenny is reported to be getting along with these days is her former nemesis, Kelly Bensimon. According to the report, Bethenny and Kelly made up during the summer.

Bethenny’s biggest feud is with her former BFF Jill Zarin. Her recent comments dissing Jill will certainly not help matters. The rift was more evident between the ex-besties last week during a dinner Jill hosted for 40 friends at Saks Fifth Avenue; Bethenny was the only “Housewife” who hadn’t been invited.

However, Jill isn’t the only NY housewife Bethenny is alienating herself from as she has been gradually cutting ties with Countess Luann De Lesseps, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer since news that she’d get her own show on Bravo broke during the summer.

The NYDailyNews goes on to report the the separation between Bethenny and her co-stars might be an intentional move by Bravo producers, who want her to stand alone in an attempt to pave the way for her own reality show.

I highly doubt this rift between Bethenny and the other housewives is intentional though. Perhaps they just got tired of Bethenny running her mouth and talking negatively about them behind their backs.

Ready or not! You are about to see a whole lot more of The Real Housewives of New York City’s Kelly Bensimon.

The mother of two is set to pose for Playboy according to InTouch Magazine.

In Touch is reporting that Kelly will pose partially nude for the December issue of the men’s mag.

According to an insider, her ex-husband, French fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon, took the photos. “Kelly is a former model, so she will be a natural,” the insider says.

Jason Hoppy with girlfriend Bethenny Frankel

Real Housewives of NYC star, Bethenny Frankel’s life is no longer private since staring in a reality show. So could that translate into a reality TV wedding for the Skinny Girl entrepreneur and boyfriend Jason Hoppy?

“I don’t know. If he asks me to marry him, when he does, I’ll say yes, so we’ll see,” she told OK! recently at the BNP Paribas Taste of Tennis event. “But I don’t know what kind of wedding we’d have.”

Bethenny reveals that Jason will be a part of the reality show, since he is part of her life.

“He’s a part of my life and I would never do anything inauthentic on the show, just like I wouldn’t do anything inauthentic in my life, so it’s kind of all the same,” explains Bethenny.

So is Jason ready for reality TV stardom?

“I think he’s a little bit nervous,” admits Bethenny. ” He’s from a very small town and he’s a very normal, grounded guy and I think that he’s a little overwhelmed.”

Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of New York City took to her Twitter page earlier this week to slam stylist and fellow Bravo reality star Rachel Zoe.

OK! Magazine caught up with Rachel, star of The Rachel Zoe Project, to ask her about it, she explained that she has no idea where the bad blood came from. “It was out of left field,” she told OK!

Bethenny’s Twitter comments included slams such as -

“Wondering if I’m the only one who can’t get over the self-important nonsense that is Rachel Zoe.”

“If I stick on a lampshade with a moo moo and a pair of bananas hoop earrings, rz may just D I E. What a bunch of BS!”

Rachel is however ready to put this all behind her, saying – “It’s so boring and uninteresting… I don’t find it fascinating at all. And, it was literally out of left field… I’m over it. I’m totally over it.”

This isn’t the first time Bethenny has slammed someone seemingly unprovoked, she did the same to her NY Housewives costar Jill Zarin just weeks ago.

Real Housewives of New York City Star, Bethenny Frankel, is making a statement by posing nude in the latest PETA “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” ad campaign. TV Guide Magazine was present at the racy photo shoot on a Manhattan rooftop.

In the new interview with TV Guide Magazine, Bethenny speaks out about posing nude for PETA, her new bestseller, love life and dishes out on the Real housewives series.

Below are excerpts from this interview-

You’re brave! How does it feel to take it all off?
Oh, I’m really excited. I think it’s a really amazing cause. It’s very simple to say to people, “You get to make a choice, and you can choose not to wear fur. It’s such a frivolous thing to do, and I used to do it. I wasn’t a crazy fur-wearer, certainly—I couldn’t afford it and I’m not that outlandish—but it really is so superfluous.

How’d you get involved with PETA, anyway?
I’m a huge animal lover, so it’s been a very organic process. I’m not on the top of any soapbox, but I think this is just a really interesting thing, and they came to me. They [noticed] that I’d gotten a lot of exposure lately—pun intended, because that’s nothing like the exposure I’m getting today. I guess they trust that I’ll be able to carry the message.

Do you have any pets of your own?
I have a dog, Cookie—she’s a lhasa mix, a mutt.

Your book, Naturally Thin, has been a big hit. Does that mean that people are constantly checking out what you’re eating?
Yes! I had a bowl of pasta, and it showed up on blogs. But my entire mantra is that there’s no food that’s forbidden; taste everything, eat nothing. And people have been watching me eat a lot more lately because for 52 weeks, I’m doing a food crawl for my Twitter followers. Last Monday was the lobster roll crawl, this week it’s a gelato crawl, next week it’s a French fry call. I’m going to be at McDonald’s!

What’s your take on the current season of your sister show, the Real Housewives of Atlanta?
I call it the Real Housewivez [sic] of the Hood. They’re all very much into, “Are you a gangster, are you a hood”…asking [questions] about whether you came from money or didn’t come from money. I don’t think anybody’s confusing them from being in the Great Gatsby…and who cares anyway? I think on the first season, they all wanted to prove how wealthy they are, and how they have a staff and stylists. There are two events a year in Atlanta—I don’t know why they need stylists, assistants and hair people. And this season, I think they’re trying to go backwards a little and be like, “This is where I came from.” They’re having a financial identity crisis.

Is that your favorite of the other Housewives franchises?
Atlanta’s my favorite…my show included.

The Real Housewives of New York City

Bravo began filming the 3rd season of The Real Housewives of New York City on Monday despite the widely publized contract issues.

Life&Style magazine reports, “There were contract issues, but Aug. 31 was always the start date, with or without a contract,” says an insider.

Their insider also insists their salaries was not an issue, “The ladies wanted more money, and they’re getting it.” The insider continues, “Bravo was happy to up their pay since the show makes more money now. The Housewives just had an issue with some of the wording in the contract.”

According to Life&Style, Bethenny Frankel is still in talks with Bravo to get her own reality show, and might be leaving the NY Housewives after this season.

We also reported some nasty comments Bethenny recently made about castmate, Jill Zarin, so this 3rd season will definitely have some drama.

Bethenny Frankel with Jill Zarin

There have been rumors that BFFs Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were on the outs, and Bethenny now seems to be confirming these rumors with her recent comments.

Bethenny had some harsh words for her Real Housewives of New York City castmate, calling her recent actions “utterly embarrassing.” Those recent actions include Jill’s public outings with the likes of Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan.

“Why would Jill be hanging with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan?” she asked of Jill’s escapades with the D-List dads in Southampton. “That was like an episode of ‘The Surreal Life.’ It is utterly embarrassing. I mean, honestly, Urkel should have come – and if Gary Coleman showed up, it would have been perfect.”

Bethenny doesn’t stop there. As she stirred up drinks she created in honor of celebs, she snapped “No!” when asked if she created a drink for former BFF Jill, “Jill doesn’t get a drink,” said Bethenny.

This isn’t too surprising as the pair have not been photographed together in recent months. I have also heard stories about Jill becoming too big for her britches. Some are saying she has become a total diva, and a nightmare to be around. I read a story about her pulling the “Do you know who I am” outburst while she was waiting to get served at a restaurant. She seems to truly consider herself a celebrity, and wants to be famous at all cost.

This new drift should make for an interesting new season of The Real Housewives of New York.
