Bethenny Frankel is now confirming her definite return to Bravo’s hit show – The Real Housewives of New York City. She appeared on Watch What Happens a week ago and voiced her desire to return to the show.

“I’m definitely going to do the Housewives this season,” Bethenny confirmed to PEOPLE this week. “It’s been great … I love it. I understand we start filming [season 3] in September.”

Bethenny of course could not resist a chance to take a shot at rival, Kelly Bensimon, when asked if Kelly could rehabilitate her image on the new season. “Good luck with that. Am I helping? No.” said Bethenny. Gotta love her pure honesty.

The biggest news of all is Bethenny finally denied being engaged. We reported last week that she referred to her supposed fiance, Jason Hoppy, as her boyfriend. When asked by People, she denied being engaged but reaffirmed that they do plan on getting married one day. “You don’t see any ring,” she said.

Still not sure if it’s a good idea to keep publicly talking about your plan to marry someone who has yet to propose. That didn’t seem to work too well for Kim Kardashian but whatever floats Bethenny’s boat.


America’s Next Top Model just got more glamorous.  Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian will appear separately as guest judges when the show returns for it’s 13th cycle.

LC will join host Tyra Banks, photographer Nigel Barker and runway diva J. Alexander on the judges’ panel on Sept. 16, while Kim will take her turn on Oct. 21.

According to People, each episode of the new cycle, which premieres Sept. 9 (8 p.m. EST) on the CW, will feature a member of the fashion community as a guest judge.

Former judge Paulina Porizkova will no longer be appearing on the show, as she was fired back in May.  Another first for this season?  All of the contestants on this cycle will be 5?7? and under.
