Bethenny shared on her website, “Well, there has been a lot of speculation about my return to television and to Bravo in particular. Bravo and I have maintained an incredible partnership and relationship over the years, which is something I am very proud of and grateful for. It really is where it all began for me, and you can’t forget where you came from.”
Last night Sonja attended an exclusive cabaret show at Café Carlyle for a performance by actress Molly Ringwald. At $600 per ticket, one might expect class – or not! Sonja reportedly showed up wasted, violated dress code, and behaved sloppily, report other attendees.
Witnesses claim that Sonja was seated front and center and paid more attention to her cell phone than the performance. And that she was drunk as a skunk upon arrival – only worsened by her “martini-swilling” throughout the evening. Lord let’s just be thankful she kept all her clothes on and her legs closed, or didn’t hop up on stage to perform her own “Caburlesque” nonsense.
From her table surround by male attendants (who is she Lady Gaga now?) Sonja was talking loudly throughout Molly’s act and spent the evening texting and tweeting on her phone. “Sonja seemed completely bombed,” says a witness of Sonja’s attention-seeking. “She had about five men at the table and they were all chatting throughout. She drunkenly asked to meet Molly, who declined.”
“The whole show is a phony!” George laments. “It is not comprised of real housewives. It should be called Divorced Housewives, Single Housewives or Non-Resident Housewives.”
George claims that it was Aviva who brought in all the ratings last season! Wait, I thought that was Ramonja? “They should have never let Aviva go,” George complains. “The ratings were at 2 million, then down to 1.3 million. And the only reason the ratings went up recently is because Aviva threw her leg.”
Bethenny Frankel left the Real Housewives of New York way back in 2010 after the third season and just months before she gave birth to her daughter Bryn. At the time, Bethenny was not done with Bravo or reality TV, as cameras rolled when she gave birth, got married and launched her multi-million dollar empire.
But when Bethenny walked away from her Bravo spin-offs and launched her own talk show, we assumed that she was done with reality TV for good. Or was she?
Before she stopped by Watch What Happens Live, LuAnn was in The Village earlier in the night and shared with Andy that her co-stars were less than gracious. “Tonight we were at the Arts Club down in the village and they were at this party and I was told that they wanted to sit at another table rather than be at the same table with me. Love it, that’s fine. It’s cool. ” LuAnn laughed the whole thing off, naturally.
Andy asked, “did Ramona play dumb when she saw you?” LuAnn replied sarcastically “No, she is always soo very nice.” She added, “She tried to organize a little bit before. You know how shifty Ramona is. She is very shifty.”
Never one to shy away from the truth, Bethenny opened up about her new book, the possibility of a return to the show that made her famous, Scary Island, fake housewives and her surprising connection to Aviva Drescher.
After liquidating (or having a trustee liquidate?) her wild-boar infested St. Tropez property, and attempting to sell her Colorado home, Sonja is now desperately trying to hang onto her NYC town home without selling it to satisfy her multi-million dollar judgement.
