Bethenny Frankel just keeps us guessing about her love life. After calling it quits with husband, Jason Hoppy, she was rumored to have a new man in her life in billionaire Warren Lichtenstein. She was seen vacationing with him in tropical locales and word on the street — I just wanted to talk like Aviva Drescher for a minute — was that she was even staying at his apartment.
The former Real Housewives of New York star denied that they were an item, and said they were just "good friends". Fast forward to New Year's Eve in Miami where Bethenny was seen canoodling and partying with muscle-bound Michael Cerussi III. Now a new lawsuit filed against Mr. Lichtenstein names Bethenny as his girlfriend. So what gives?
As if the complete cast overhaul on Real Housewives of New York wasn't enough, now someone else appears to be adding her name to the cast roster.
Everyone's favorite completely delusional image consultantAmanda Sanders has dubbed herself the newest cast member. Last week Amanda's website was describing her as the newest castmember, she has since changed it to "appearing on" RHONY probably because Bravo got wind of her false-representation!
On Amanda's personal website she now lists herself as a "distinguished TV personality currently starring on ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’". What exactly is distinguished about showing Harry Dubin your dubin and admitting he doesn't remember you the next morning. Anyway…
I'm going to sound like the biggest old fogey on the planet, but I say it to the young kids all the time (read: the teens and twenty-somethings I used to baby-sit for), "The Internet doesn't go away." That naked picture you sent your boyfriend he swears he deleted? Out there. That video you didn't mean to post of you drinking under age that accidentally made its way to Tumblr because you were too drunk to know better? Still in cyberspace. It's bad enough having to feel generations away from these yahoos (and I'm really not that old!) and their reckless abandon for all things dot.com, but I totally neglected an entirely different dynamic.
It seems that people who are maybe a bit older and not adept in technology need a lesson as well. Case in point? Mario Singer's text messages with his alleged mistress have now been leaked. You know he's thinking, how did that happen? Don't they disappear when I hit send? Nope. Even though it's being reported that Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer is attempting to reconcile her ex, she may want reconsider…or at least get on the same text and data plan!
Aviva starts off attempting to explain her comments and this whole book fiasco. Again. "perhaps wasn't the best choice of words and as a writer I should have known better, I suppose, but I still believe it was clear to everyone what I meant when I said, "it takes a village" to make a book. It does. I've said this all before – in the Acknowledgements of Leggy Blonde, on the show, in interviews. But the haters can’t seem to get past the phrase — and, you know, I don’t blame them; it sounds lame."
Last night on Real Housewives of New York the ladies took their petty drama and their over-exposed lady parts to the Hamptons. Oh! Oh! And LuAnn de Lesseps appeared. I missed her. Awwww…. Lu – welcome back, weekend mama!
Aviva Drescher has a tagalong no one likes. Because the only tagalongs anyone likes come in a Girl Scout's Cookie box. The other problem of course is that no one likes Aviva and that Amanda cannot hold her liquor or her tongue (seriously there were Brandi Glanville levels of slurring every time that woman spoke last night. I don't know what was droopier her boobs or her articulation!).
Ramona Singer recently filed for divorce from husband Mario Singer when she discovered he was getting cozy with a much-younger blonde socialite!
WelltheReal Housewives of New Yorkstar isn't quite ready to let things go. She is reportedly trying to forgiveMario. He briefly dumped his mistress Kasey Dexter and reports at Page Six state Ramona allowed him to move back into their Upper East Side apartment. The exes were spotted looking "very much together" over dinner on Thursday. This isn't the first time they've been spotted 'on a date' since calling it quits, either.
