Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her boob job ordeal in a new interview with Life & Style magazine.

In the mag’s latest issue, the Bethenny Ever After star admits she got breast implants but says she had them removed a few years ago. Bethenny states that back in 2005, she was feeling unhappy with her natural 34C. She thought her breasts were way too saggy and approached a plastic surgeon to get a lift.

The plastic surgeon however wouldn’t perform the procedure she wanted. “He told me there would be big lollipop scars if I got a lift,” Bethenny, 40, tells Life & Style. “Being single at the time, I wasn’t comfortable with the idea. He told me he could instead put in a small implant that would give me a lift — not as much as a real lift would but at least a little bit of a lift. So I did it.”

Bethenny says she wasn’t happy with the implants. “I was a D-cup,” Bethenny remembers. “They were still saggy — only now they were bigger! They were saggy and gigantic.”

“I was so uncomfortable. I looked like a stripper,” continues Bethenny. “I don’t think your breasts should be the first thing people notice when you enter a room.”

Bethenny adds that after joining the cast of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City in 2008, she was finally able to afford having the implants taken out.

“The minute I had the money, I was like, ‘Let’s do it,’” says Bethenny adding that she quickly booked an appointment with a surgeon, had the implants removed and went back to her normal size.

“Now I feel comfortable,” says Bethenny. “I feel proportional — and I don’t have saggy boobs anymore. It’s the best feeling ever.” Bethenny adds that her hubby Jason Hoppy is happy with her natural size. “He likes me in a bathing suit and in lingerie — and when I’m naked,” smiles Bethenny.

Interesting comments by Bethenny though her recent photos stemming from 2009 to 2011 still show what appears to be breast implants but we’ll let you be the judge of that with more photos below. Our guess is she might have gotten smaller implants as the above photo of Bethenny in a white bikini from 2009 looks like more than just a lift.

Real Housewives of New York City

It seems time has flown fast when it comes to the unprecedented dramatic third season of the Real Housewives of New York City.

Tonight is the finale and here’s what we can expect. As Ramona prepares for the special day of her wedding renewal, she gets a last minute visit from Jill, who wants to re-hash all that went down during her surprise visit in St. John. And while Bethenny Frankel prepares for her new life by moving downtown with her fiancé Jason, she must face her past when she and Jill finally meet for lunch to discuss their broken friendship. A video preview is below.

We also reported this week that a “source” told Life&Style magazine that Jill and Bethenny are working to mending their friendship. Well according to Ramona, the story is false and Bethenny and Jill “are not friends again.”

As for the anticipated reunion, Ramona reveals it “got hectic” and that “Two people walked off. One person got up and stomped her foot!” And when it comes to Kelly’s mental well being since the her infamous breakdown in St John, Ramona says Kelly “is absolutely not” doing better. “She goes in and out,” says Ramona.

Kelly Bensimon PSAAnd since we’re on the topic of Kelly Bensimon, who continues to take a downward spiral into crazyville, especially after releasing her home-made anti-bullying PSA video (screen shot above). Must say using an important issue such as bullying to selfishly serve her own agenda is a bit disgusting. Even more disgusting considering this woman was arrested just a year ago for punching her boyfriend in the face. Seems like Kelly knows a lot about bullying.

In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the 42-year-old moron mother of two, is now claiming Bravo forced her to go on the St. John trip. “I was asked by Bravo to go, I didn’t want to go,” she told AH on Wednesday. “These women are not for me. Clearly, Ramona does not like me …I went against my will and the minute I got there, it was everything I hate.”

“They’re playing a game. We’re playing two different games. I’m playing basketball and they’re playing hockey,” continued Kelly. “And they want blood.”

In other housewives news, Jill Zarin did a new interview with TV Guide, and she is now blaming Alex McCord for being turned away in St. John. Below are excepts from Jill’s interview –

“I think had Alex not cared whether I stayed or left, I could have gotten past it. But for whatever influence Alex has over Ramona right now worked… Alex wants to make herself more important on the show, and I totally respect that. And this was her way of doing it. This was her way of creating a place for herself to stay on the show. Without the drama of what she’s been doing, she really doesn’t have a place on the show. In the finale, you’ll see there’s a moment with Alex where she wants to talk to me. I just remove myself from it. I have nothing against her, I’m just not going to give her another shot at me since her history with me is to attack me unprovoked. I’ve done nothing to her. In the first two seasons I was the only one who supported her, and now all of a sudden she found this voice and wants to attack me.”

So according to delusional Jill, Alex is controlling Ramona, and that was the reason she got kicked off crazy Island. Delusional Jill also can’t fathom why Alex could possibly dislike her, despite the fact that she has spent the past two seasons of the show constantly taking digs at Alex and her family.

The preview clip of Bethenny and Jill’s meet up is below –

The Hills' Stephanie Pratt

Stephanie Pratt has pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor DUI charge in a Los Angeles court Friday and will enroll in a 30-day rehab residential facility.

The Hills star, 23, was arrested back in October in Hollywood after driving home from fellow castmate, Holly Montags birthday party. Her two breathalyzer tests registered .08 and .09 — the legal limit is .08. She was arrested and released on $5000 bail.

She recently told PEOPLE that the arrest “was the worst thing to happen to me and, at the same time, it was the biggest blessing” as a life lesson. If convicted, Stephanie faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Gosselin Jon

More details are being revealed about the recent $5 million lawsuit Jon Gosselin filed against the TLC network.

According to RadarOnline, Jon claims the reason he refuses to go out and get a regular job is simply because he is too famous.  Yes you read that right.   In an affidavit filed as part of the lawsuit, Jon states: “Now, I find myself unemployed and without the ability to secure non-entertainment related engagements because the enormous Media interest, cameras, reporters and public interest makes it impossible to carry on normal daily activities, let alone find, secure and maintain a job with an employer who is willing to be exposed to the daily Media intrusions that has impeded by life.”

Other claims made by Jon in the lawsuit include his claims that TLC staged some of the scenes for Jon & Kate Plus 8. Staged scenes for a reality show? Shocking!  Jon also claims TLC likes Kate more then they like him.  He states the network enforced the contract, “strictly and harshly towards me, while leniently, if at all, applying them towards my wife.”

In other news, the National Enquirer also published a story claiming Jon has a sex tape floating around.  Stephanie Santoro, Jon’s former babysitter with whom he slept with, said the following — “Tom told me that Jon was secretly videotaped having sex with a woman in Los Angeles in October, and he’s seen the tape!”  The Tom she is referring to is Thomas Meinelt, Jon’s former bodyguard.

Jon’s reps have however denied the story about the sex tape.

We reported yesterday of Jon Gosselin’s plans to countersue TLC.  Details of that lawsuit have now been uncovered.

According to RadarOnline, Jon’s lawyers have layed out some startling accusations against the TLC network.  Jon reveals that he and Kate made just $2000 per episode back when their show began, he also accuses TLC of violating child labor laws, and owing him  $175,000.

His lawyers argue that TLC violated Pennsylvania child labor laws by failing to obtain proper permits allowing their eight children to be filmed for Jon and Kate Plus 8. Though he and Kate were obligated by contract to obtain those permits themselves (versus the network), his attorneys are adamant that this was TLC’s attempt to “circumvent the laws.”

Jon’s lawyers also argue that the restrictions of TLC’s contract is preventing him from earning money as a celebrity. “Mr. Gosselin will be unable to earn a living as a television personality, and therefore be precluded from supporting his eight children,” the papers claim.

Other revelations in the court documents are that Jon & Kate negotiated their first TV contract back in 2005 without the presence of a lawyer or manager, and that TLC took “advantage of Mr. Gosselin’s inexperience and lack of sophistication.”  According to the papers, the family earned $2000 per episode back in 2005, compared to the reported $75,000 per-episode rate in 2009.

His lawyers also argue that TLC’s restrictions were too strict, to the point that Jon wasn’t allowed to take photographs at home, preventing him from recording “his own family moments and hallmark events in his family’s life.”

Jon is countersuing TLC for $5 million.

Kate Gosselin opens up about her feelings during a speaking engagement this weekend and her appearance on The View.

At Ohio’s second annual Cleveland Women’s Show on Friday, the reality mom of eight, 34, told a crowd, “I’ve lost a lot of control in my life.”

Kate continues, “At the beginning of all of this, you’ve heard me say before, I didn’t want fans gawking, I didn’t want people gawking, I just wanted to be myself, my family.” She however went on to thank her supporters, “I have learned, I appreciate your support, I need you, I love you, thank you.”

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom also made her anticipated appearance on The View as a guest host on Monday. When asked about her feelings towards Jon Gosselin bringing his new girlfriend around the kids, Kate admits it is tough. “I’m not going to lie, it’s difficult, this is all difficult” says Kate. She however made it clear that she intends to take the high road, saying – “For the sake of my children, I am going to continue taking the high road.”

Kate went on to admit having a recent meltdown, “I melted down over the weekend in the privacy of my own home.”

In other news, USWeekly is reporting Jon and girlfriend Hailey Glassman were spotted was all over NYC Sunday night celebrating the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Jon was spotted at an after-party at hotspot Avenue and also at a bash at the Hotel on Rivington in NYC’s hip Lower East side.

Sheree-whitfield-she-by-sheree

Miss She By Sheree, sometimes known as Sheree Whitfield, made her highly anticipated debut at the New York Fashion Show on Sunday.

Noticeably missing in attendance were Sheree’s fellow Atlanta housewives — Kandi, Kim, Nene, and Lisa. Trouble in paradise perhaps? “It’s just a working relationship,” Sheree explained. “We all have our different things that we’re doing. We’re not friends, but we are cordial.”

Stylist.com’s blog was able to get Sheree for a quick Q&A session, below are some excerpts –

StyleList: How does showing at Fashion Week in New York compare to having a show in Atlanta?
Sheree: There’s absolutely no comparison. Being in New York for Fashion Week is like the ultimate. This is the fashion capital of the world so for me to be able to preview my line here, I feel like I’m on cloud 9. I need to go home and pinch myself, you know what I’m saying? Of course, my ultimate goal is to come back in February during the shows and do a full out presentation on the runway.

StyleList: How does your collection compare to Lisa’s “Closet Freak” collection?
Sheree: Yeah, right … [laughs]. It doesn’t compare. I wish her well and wish her all the best, but it doesn’t compare.

You gotta love the cattiness. The clothes look a bit upgraded from she debuted in Atlanta back in May.
