The Real Housewives of New York City’sresident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankelopened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce toJason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
Luann de Lesseps, her royal Real Housewives of New York Citycast member, has got a boyfriend and he appears to be googly-eyed over her. Luann’s latest and quite possibly, greatest conquest, Tom D’Agostino Jr. spoke to People magazine about how nuts he is about his lady love. The couple, who began dating around September of last year, definitely only seem to have eyes for each other and reportedly, he might remain on this ride until the wheels fall off!
Tom tells People, “LuAnn is the new love of my life. She is a beautiful person who is elegant, classy and filled with energy like I am. We have a lot in common.” Tom, who just happens to be a millionaire and president and CEO of Smart Source, a corporate print industry company, is also rumored to be an heir to the long-established East coast supermarket chain, D’Agostino. The businessman is also seemingly much in demand with global obligations that have raked up frequent flyer miles. Tom tells the celeb magazine, how he loves the fact that even though Luann has also spanned the globe, she can shed those cosmopolitan aires and get “down home.”
Real Housewives of New York City’s Sonja Morgan is certainly juggling quite a few hats these days. The entrepreneurial diva is reportedly, now scouting New York City Upper East Side locations (of course) in hopes of finding a perfect locale for a restaurant she’d like to name Tipsy according to the New York Daily News.
Ahhh…but wait, Sonja has an ulterior motive for wanting to join the ranks of restaurateurs in the Big Apple…a reality show! An insider who spoke to the Daily News revealed, Sonja has aspirations of becoming another Lisa Vanderpump, the grand dame of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reality show fame. Lisa, who owns restaurants, also managed to snag a successful spin-off show, Vanderpump Rules, based on the shenanigans at one of her West Hollywood posh eateries, SUR. The insider states, Sonja is not wasting a precious minute to get her wheels in motion to pitch her reality show idea and has gone as far as, “hiring a producer and filmmaker to try to make a show based on it.”
The Real Housewives of New York City’sSonja Morgan reportedly took a powder to luxuriate at the Canyon Ranch Health Resort & Luxury Spa in Lenox, Mass. to escape the shade that was aimed at her from one pretty miffed castmate Bethenny Frankel. It seems Bethenny, who created her $100 million Skinnygirl low-calorie cocktail line will have some unwelcome competition from Sonja, who has her Tipsy Girl booze line practically ready to roll.
The caflama-filled situation involving the two women has now spilled over from real life to the small screen. It seems Bethenny has arranged a Mexico trip and the adventure will, of course, be fodder for the Bravo reality series. However, Sonja is reportedly fretting that her invite for the trip will mysteriously get lost in the mail. And the invite just might never reach Sonja’s hands.

She was the founding design director for the Sean “Diddy” Combs label, and had also worked as a stylist with the likes of such A-listers as Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. After nearly 20 years in the biz, Heather decided to make some moves for herself. She had been noticing that there was a dire need for shapewear that was sexy, comfy and “yummie,” so she stepped out on a limb and launched her own line called Yummie, a brand of shape wear that has a patented three-panel system. The company has now expanded to include bras, panties, denim, leggings, active and the latest and greatest, loungewear.
